Owen Wilson is giving off some serious Bob Ross vibes in the first look at Paint!

In a first-look photo from the forthcoming movie the Wedding Crashers star, 53, plays a Vermont painter named Carl Nargle, who seems to be sporting the same iconic hairstyle as the late PBS host of The Joy of Painting.

According to a synopsis from the IFC Films production, Wilson's Nargle "has it all: a signature perm, custom van, and fans hanging on his every stroke."

But a "younger, better artist" soon enters the picture and "steals everything (and everyone) Carl loves," per the production notes.

Written and directed by Brit McAdams, the movie is based on The Black List 2010 screenplay, and stars Casual alum Michaela Watkins, BridesmaidsWendi McLendon-CoveyBarry star Stephen Root, Ciara Renée, Lusia Strus, and Lucy Freyer.

"We're thrilled to finally work with the boundless and versatile talent of Owen Wilson, as he effortlessly brings Carl Nargle's character to life from a savvy script and direction by Brit McAdams," Arianna Bocco, president of IFC Films, said, per Deadline.
