Yes, the actor would be different, but the character should be the same: seemingly absent-minded but really razor sharp; bashful and self-deprecating; still smoking cigars, losing pencils and sharing anecdotes about his unseen wife. Jason Bateman would be a good sympathetic killer, someone we almost want to see get away. “Nothing’s ever going to touch Peter’s performance, but if a character is truly a great character, then it should be able to be played and reinterpreted by other actors,” he said. With that in mind, you’d need to start with a middle-aged actor (35-55) who is beautiful, then roughen them. In short, more of the same from when the show was at its peak. Which means, in all likelihood, someone, somewhere, right now, is working on a reboot/reimagining of Columbo.

I’d be keen as mustard – as long as the right creative team was behind it. If you’re so against the idea that even a hypothetical debate will vex thee greatly, please immediately head to this safe page of photos featuring Columbo cuddling Dog.
