This probably shouldn't run until February when the miniseries is available on Amazon Prime.

Peter,

John Malkovich is an intriguing choice to play Hercule Poirot. However, I consider David Suchet to be the quintessential Poirot.

David Suchet is definitely the best.  I had no idea they were bringing this back!

Albert Finney but I haven't seen Malkovich yet and but he'll be very good. I'm starting to watch the new Poirot tomorrow.

Being John Malkovich while playing Hercule Poirot could be an intriguing video vignette.

Not now he isn't. Suchet is the definitive Poirot.
