We can't wait to give players the delight of interacting with the Hercule Poirot they've come to love through the popular television movies."

Suchet has a multitude of television, film and stage roles to his credit from Little Drummer Girl and Falcon and the Snowman to A Tale of Two Cities and his Tony nominated Broadway stage performance in Amadeus.
