Janet Jackson has sent out casting agents to scour the streets of Hollywood for people to star in her upcoming music video for the single I WANT YOU.

The NASTY singer, who has kept a low profile since exposing her breast at 1 February's (04) Super Bowl, is teaming up once more with video director DAVE MEYERS, who made her ALL FOR YOU clip and has also worked on promos for Jennifer Lopez, Missy Elliott, Britney Spears and Jackson's beau Jermaine Dupri.

Casting agents are seeking a wide range of people; everyone from teenage thug types - including one described as a mix between model Tyson Beckford and Jackson's late POETIC JUSTICE co-star TUPAC SHAKUR - to mothers picking up babies and children from day care, and men and women of all ages commuting by bus to and from work.

The video will be set in a neighbourhood resembling Brooklyn, New York.
