Transcript: Hollywood in mourning over the deaths of Martin Landau and George Romero

Hollywood is in mourning over the news that two cinematic icons, actor Martin Landau and director George Romero, have passed away, and online tributes to the two legends have been pouring in.

Landau, star of the original 'Mission: Impossible' TV series, had just celebrated his 89th birthday, but was still a working actor, with two final films completed and awaiting release.

Alec Baldwin paid his respects, tweeting that he "grew up watching and admiring MARTIN LANDAU", and that he's on his way "to London to shoot MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, oddly enough".

Patricia Arquette also weighed in, remembering the role that won Martin an Oscar. "Working with Martin Landau on Ed Wood was a joy.

What a talented, sweet generous actor".

Meanwhile, Romero, best known for classic horror movies like 'Night of the Living Dead', was remembered by a legion of today's hottest moviemakers.

'Guardians of the Galaxy's James Gunn noted that the director made him "want to make movies, and helped" him "to find meaning in monsters", while Eli Roth said Romero's was "both ahead of his time and exactly what cinema needed at the time".

Zack Snyder lamented that "the world has lost a master", while for Guillermo del Toro it was "hard to find words right now".

And Joss Whedon reminded us that "no one mined the zombie metaphor like Romero. (After he invented it.) No one has come close.

RIP & thank you to a Great Film Artist".
