89 is a good long run, but he'll be missed.  Such a talent with an impressive body of work.

Wow, that news came out of nowhere.  A good run indeed, and very sad for me, as "SPACE: 1999" is one of the earliest TV shows I remember watching on a semi-regular basis.

RIP, to quite the accomplished character actor.

(And again, as a child of the '70s, who grew up obsessed with sci-fi & fantasy TV and films, these last few years have been brutal... so many great, iconic names & faces, slipping away...)

Great, fearless actor who had a wonderful early career then some lean years but he came back with with a vengeance and some more killer roles later on.   His career briefly paralleled Leonard Nimoy a few times (he was rumored to have been considered for the part of Spock that went to Nimoy then went on to be essentially replaced by Nimoy in Mission: Impossible a few years later.)  I'll always remember him best for his menacing Leonard in North By Northwest, his hilarious Bela Lugosi turn in Ed Wood and, of course, Rollin Hand in MI.  RIP

I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Landau at a convention a couple years back. He signed my "Ed Wood" poster, and also signed it on Bela Lugosi's behalf.  He was kind as could be.  If you can ever track down his episode of "Inside the Actor's Studio" it's a pretty great conversation about his acting career and craft.

The man who was not Spock. Developed from a quirky bit player to a serious actor. A life well lived.

Loved his role as Rollin Hand in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - and Koenig in SPACE: 1999.

I enjoyed his appearance as a bad guy in NORTH BY NORTHWEST, too.

Such an impressive body of work.

RIP.

R.I.P  I first saw him on Space 1999.  Then later in MI, and then in Cleopatra.

Coincidentally, I just signed up for CBS All Access and have been binge-watching MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE.

I'll continue to do so.

Learned about this while out of town. Much sadness expressed at the news by many folks at the event.

Another piece of my younger years has passed into history.

RIP

He stars in one of my favorite films, Woody Allens's brilliant CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS.  And he was fantastic in ED WOOD

RIP
