DESTINY’S CHILD singer BEYONCE KNOWLES has been approached to star in ‘AUSTIN POWERS 3′ as MIKE MYERS’ love interest.
Beyoncé is tipped to be cast in the main female role, called ‘Goldmember’. Leading actresses in the previous films were Liz Hurley and Heather Graham. Beyoncé’s acting experience to date includes the MTV-made film, ‘Carmen: A Hip Hopera’.
Meanwhile, Destiny’s Child have cancelled the Australian leg of their world tour over security concerns following the US terrorist attacks.
Beyoncé told UK press: “We’re always excited when we perform for our fans in Australia. Postponing these shows was the hardest thing for us, because we truly enjoy the fans. We made that decision the very last second after taking a hard look at the state of the world right now. We look forward to rescheduling the shows and we pray for a quick end to the fighting and a return to peaceful times.”
The British tour schedule is unaffected, with the girls starting their campaign at Sheffield Arena on November 10.
