Variety reports that Steve Carell’s production company, Carousel Productions, is set to adapt Rick Reilly’s golf novel, “Missing Links”.  The story is about “a group of golfing buddies at a run-down Boston course. The group discovers they’ve been playing next to an elite club and holds a competition over who will be first to play a round.”  Hopefully it will have a cheesy 80s movie vibe otherwise I have no interest in the film especially since Variety makes no mention of Carell even considering a lead role in the film.  If this reaches the screen, I assume he’ll have a cameo role.  Perhaps he could be a surly yet lovable groundskeeper who provides a key bit of wisdom to the film’s hero before the big game.  I don’t even know if that role is in Reilly’s book but it would be great in a cheesy 80s-comedy.
