JENNIFER GARNER: MEET THE NEW MISS MARPLE
Granted, we were surprised to hear that Disney has cast Jennifer Garner to star in their upcoming Agatha Christie movie as Miss Marple. Keep in mind, Angela Lansbury was considered young for the part when she played it in her fifties. The character of Miss Marple is a sturdy, sensible but slightly flighty mature woman who lives in the English countryside and enjoys gardening and detective work. Her surprisingly brilliant mind and knowledge of human nature helps her solve puzzling crimes. Jennifer Garner as a mild mannered English spinster? We have a feeling that Jen will pull it off in the updated version of the murder mystery.
