Wow. Owen Wilson has been on a tear over the last few years from his Marvel hit “Loki” to venturing into “The Haunted Mansion” to romancing Jennifer Lopez in “Marry Me” to continuing his Oscar-nominated collaborations with Wes Anderson in “The French Dispatch.” Now, he has two new roles coming to the fore.

The first is a crime thriller called “​​Lips Like Sugar” in which Wilson will star opposite Woody Harrelson as a detective searching for a missing girl during the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. The second, and more importantly for us, is a new Apple TV+ comedy in which Wilson will play a washed-up golfer.

The show, which remains nameless as of now, comes from Jason Keller, the writer of “Ford v Ferrari,” and will allow Wilson to dive into the golf world, which we know he loves.

The reported premise is as follows: “Wilson will play Pryce Cahill, whose golf career ended prematurely 20 years ago. After he gets fired from his job at a sporting goods store in Indiana and his wife leaves him, Pryce sees a troubled 17-year-old golf phenom as his way back.”

That feels just right for Wilson, who can play the down-on-his-luck sap as well as the best of them. Hopefully, his doppelganger, Will Zalatoris, will get a chance to show his acting chops. Could be the younger version of Cahill or even his son? Let’s get Willy Z on the small screen.

Luckily, Owen Wilson is already a golf fan and has been known to pop up at various tournaments from time to time. Just a few months ago, he showed up at The Sentry in Hawaii and chopped it up with Max Homa and Rickie Fowler.

“You’re like a hero to, I think, everybody my age,” Homa admitted to Wilson.

It’s nice to see Wilson get a role that makes perfect sense. Apple TV+ already created a sports comedy hit in “Ted Lasso.” Hopefully, Wilson and Keller make a golf classic building off that goodwill. We’re ready for a complete “Full Swing”-esque deep dive if it works out.
