The rumor going around is that Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen (girlfriend of Tom Brady, for all you NFL fans out there) is currently being wooed to play the female lead in the fourth “Austin Powers” movie. Now before you get all nuts about this, keep this in mind: It’s not as if the female leads in the “Austin Powers” movies have been, you know, Oscar-winning actresses here. The only person who could remotely act was Elizabeth Hurley, and that’s not saying much. (Don’t even get me started on Heather Graham or Beyonce. Oy.)
Boston.com reports that a script is currently out to model Gisele Bundchen for the role of the female lead in Austin Powers 4. Moreover, the site reports that her agent will soon discuss the deal with Myers and director Jay Roach (Austin Powers 1-3, Meet the Fockers).
Slipping Gisele Bundchen (pictured, below) into the female lead is not exactly out of the realm of possibility, and indeed, why the hell not? It’s all about Mike Myers and his wacky characters, anyway, the girl is just eye candy. And man oh man is Gisele some nice eye candy…
