    (CNN) Martin Landau, 89, a character actor who starred in the 1960s television show "Mission: Impossible" and won an Oscar for playing Bela Lugosi in the movie "Ed Wood," died Saturday, his publicist Dick Guttman said Sunday night.

    Landau died at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles following "unexpected complications during a short hospitalization," Guttman said in a statement.

    RIP
    May the FORCE be with you!

    RIP, Marty.

    He fell off Mt. Rushmore in North By Northwest, probably his most well-known scene.

    I just saw him in an episode of Johnny Stoccato the night before.

    My husband was a "Mission Impossible" fan (probably because of "Cinnamon Carter"); he said, "Another piece of my childhood, gone." For myself, I loved him in "Ed Wood".
