I became a fan only recently as I wasn't even born when both Mission Impossible & Space 1999 first broadcast. However after watching Mission Impossible end last year here in the uk, I was hooked & particularly with the character Rollin Hand. After also watching other films etc starring Martin I became a fan overnight, I absolutely love classic TV & Martin was a great actor in everything I have so far watched him in. My thoughts & prayers are with his family & friends at this sad time.

So sorry to learn of Martin Landau's passing. I especially enjoyed his TV screen performances as the sadistic cowboy in an early "Twilight Zone" episode and in the dual role of twins in a "Columbo" segment. Mr. Landau was a wonderful and gifted talent, and he leaves a fine legacy for us to enjoy.

A fine actor and a gentleman.
I had occasion to talk with him. No airs, no attitude. A straightforward, serious man. RIP, Sir.
