Default R.I.P. Martin Landau

Martin Landau has also passed away at age 89. His turn in Ed Wood was wonderful.

I'm kind of over memes.

I was introduced to Martin Landau via, of all things, a three episode arc in Entourage. He classed up the joint with seemingly no effort, embodying a character of great decency and sympathy, but also disarmingly great comic timing. Needless to say, even without any context for the man's greater body of work, I knew I was watching someone special. He was so out of place on that show but I would never trade it.

Rest in peace. It turns out that, yes, your work was something I might be interested in.

I just rewatched Ed Wood earlier this year. Dude beat out Sam Jackson in Pulp Fiction for the supporting actor Oscar that year, and y'know, I can't really argue.

He'd been acting for ages. He's one of the henchmen in North by Northwest!

He's awesome in Crimes and Misdemeanors and Tucker as well (and other stuff as well as well).
