SoÂ hereâ€™s this actor, David Suchet, claiming itÂ was him playing Agatha Christieâ€™s Hercule Poirot these past six years onÂ PBSâ€™ â€śMystery!â€ť
Nah. Had toÂ beÂ the real thing. Poirot onÂ TV was, after all, just asÂ aÂ Christie reader would picture the detective, from his precisely barbered mustache toÂ his perfectly exasperating ego.
AÂ mere impersonation? Câ€™mon. Hereâ€™s Mr. Suchet appearing asÂ Aaron inÂ the TNT miniseries â€śMoses,â€ť and thereâ€™s not aÂ whit ofÂ resemblance between the Old Testament figure and the Belgian sleuth.
