John Malkovich is playing Poirot! I'm thrilled. Suchet is great (though he has his limits, as Queering Agatha Christie--an excellent recent study--points out). But, since Finney, the major trend has been toward more genial, friendly portrayals of Poirot (Ustinov the avuncular, Suchet the lonely, Branagh the soulful). I've come to admire the weird, alien, unlikable Poirot Finney gave us in Murder on the Orient Express, and I'm really hoping Malkovich brings back some of that spikiness. EDIT: Here's our thread for the 2017 Murder on the Orient Express.
