David Suchet: 'I'd only play Poirot again in a movie'

David Suchet retired his walking stick and moustache when he left the role of iconic detective Hercule Poirot almost two years ago.

However, he has now revealed he wouldn't turn down a return as Agatha Christie's famed Belgian sleuth - although only in a film.

Suchet thinks he would be passed over for a big-name Hollywood star though, to bring in a larger audience to the movie.

Speaking to The Stage, he said: "I've said I'll only return if anyone makes a movie and they want me - which they won't because it will be Hollywood and they'll want one of the new A-listers."

Suchet played Agatha Christie's detective Hercule Poirot for 25 years, with a final appearance in ITV's November 2013 Poirot episode 'Curtain'.

Heartbeat star Jason Durr was cast as the detective last year in a touring stage play.
