But he didn't see a future in that line of work. As he told Talk Of The Nation Host Neal Conan in 2010, he quit the News five years later to give acting a shot. "Trust has to be attained", Landau said.

"I think he enjoyed the challenge".

The legendary actor dated Marilyn Monroe for several months and was best friends with James Dean in the 1950s.

The school employed the Method philosophy, which calls on a performer to draw from his own, often painful, memories to illuminate a character. "And I could still hear my mother say, 'You did what?!'" Opportunity knocked in 1977 with a leading role in the British sci-fi series Space: 1999, but Landau found himself again out of steady work when the series was abruptly canceled two years later.

It was a daring artistic choice for that era, and the actor's friends anxious that he'd be typecast in effeminate roles after that.

Other early film highlights include appearances in the epics "Cleopatra" (1963) with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and "The Greatest Story Ever Told" (1965). Insane as it was, Landau auditioned at the Actors Studio in 1955, and out of more than 2,000 other aspiring actors, only he and one other person were accepted into the program-the other being Steve McQueen.

Landau was also an acclaimed acting coach, teaching the likes of Jack Nicholson.

"Stranger Things" star David Harbour tweeted "The great Martin Landau has died". The role got him repeatedly nominated for Emmys and helped him nab the Best Male TV Star Golden Globe in 1968.

He was married to his Mission: Impossible co-star Barbara Bain from 1957 until their divorce in 1993. He finally became an Academy Award victor for his role in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" in 1994 after previously losing out to Kevin Kline and Denzel Washington. He even received the best supporting actor nomination for his performance.

Landau also is remembered for a role he did not get.

He received the Academy Award for Burton's "Ed Wood" (1994), in which he had an impassioned supporting turn as the Hungarian-born, heroin-addicted, aging horror-film actor Bela Lugosi. It's debatable, as the unparalleled actor played a diverse set of roles for the big screen.

More recently, Landau earned Emmy noms for playing the father of Anthony LaPaglia's character on CBS' Without a Trace and guest-starring as an out-of-touch movie producer on HBO's Entourage.
