Steve Carell In Talks For Golf Movie Missing Links

Steve Carell Teeing Up For the Missing Links

So I may not play golf, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good comedy based on the game. (Remember that scene in Happy Gilmore when Adam Sandler squares off with Bob Barker? Classic.) Now Steve Carell may be joining the ranks of Sandler and Chevy Chase (Caddyshack!) with a golf movie of his very own.

The Office star is reportedly in talks for Missing Links, based on a novel from ESPN sportswriter Rick Reilly. The film follows a golf enthusiast and his buddies as they hatch various elaborate strategies to get onto an exclusive course. Costars haven't been announced yet, but I'd love to see Paul Rudd or maybe Thomas Lennon as other members of Carell's foursome — just picture those guys donning goofy checked caps and argyle socks!

Carell is always reliable for a few laughs, so I have high hopes for this one — what about you? Who would you cast as his golfer friends?
