The actor Martin Landau، best known for roles in the TV series Mission: Impossible and 1960s blockbusters like Cleopatra، has died، aged 89، according to "BBC".
His publicist Dick Guttman confirmed the death، saying: "We are overcome with sadness."
Landau won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1995 for portraying the horror movie star Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood.
He died on Saturday in Los Angeles of "unexpected complications" following a hospital visit.
Landau was born in New York and started out as a cartoonist for the New York Daily News before moving to theatre and then cinema acting.
He featured in the Alfred Hitchcock film North by North-West and played a commander in Space: 1999 and Geppetto in a live-action version of The Adventures of Pinocchio.
But he turned down the role of Mr Spock in Star Trek، a role that went to his friend Leonard Nimoy instead.
And Nimoy later replaced Landau on Mission: Impossible when the latter left following a dispute over pay.
