If the rumour mill is right (and we like to believe that it always is!), we could soon be seeing supermodel Gisele Bundchen taking on Dr Evil and his baddies alongside everyone's favourite velvet-wearing spy, Austin Powers.

According to the Boston Globe, the Brazilian beauty has been given the script for the next Austin Powers installment and her agent has been instructed to take the next step by meeting with star Mike Myers and director Jay Roach.

Bundchen, who has already had small acting roles in The Devil Wears Prada and Taxi, would be following in the footsteps of stunners Liz Hurley, Heather Graham and Beyonce Knowles if she takes on the role of Austin's sidekick.

Do you think this is a good career move for Gisele?
