Jack Wagner, who played Peter Burns on Melrose Place and had soap fans swooning on General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful, has been cast on an upcoming episode of ABC's Castle in a role that bears more than a few similarities to Tiger Woods.

In a January episode titled "Significant Others," Wagner will play former pro golfer Billy Piper whose career went down in flames amidst a nasty divorce scandal. But unlike the Woods saga, Piper's ex ended up dead, along with a prominent divorce attorney!

Wagner should score a hole in one with the role as he's one of the leading celebrity golfers in the world. The actor, who lost his dad to multiple myeloma in 1990, will host the 7th Annual Jack Wagner Celebrity Golf Classic in April, which raises funds for cancer research and patient services.
