Pop babe Britney Spears has enlisted the acting skills of her older brother BRYAN for the video of her forthcoming single MY PREROGATIVE.

On the star's official website, Spears' mother LYNNE reveals the TOXIC singer has been filming the promo for her cover of the Bobby Brown new jack swing classic and has signed her 27-year-old sibling to star alongside her.

Spears cancelled the second North American leg of her ONYX HOTEL world tour in June (04) after she injured her knee during the video for another single OUTRAGEOUS.

After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, Spears has been relaxing with her fiance Kevin Federline in Hawaii and their Santa Monica, California home.

Lynne explains, "Britney's knee is slowly healing. She's starting to walk better and better each day. Currently, she's shooting her video for My Prerogative at the Paramour in Los Angeles.

"The video itself is going to be like none other. Since Britney's knee is unable to do choreography, the video is all about capturing gorgeous close ups and very subtle movement. It has an element of old Hollywood glamour and mystery - I think you'll love it.

"Please look for that good looking hunk of a son of mine in the video - he has a cameo right at the beginning."

The reported $7.2 million (GBP4 million) video is set to include a mock wedding scene and Spears crashing a car into a swimming pool.
