SIR Elton John turned casting director when he recruited actor James Nesbitt to star in a music video for British pop star Just Jack.
The Rocket Man singer, who has previously cast Justin Timberlake and Robert Downey Jr. in his music videos, helped Just Jack add some star power to his promo clip for The Day I Died by calling on Nesbitt to film a cameo.
The singer - real name Jack Allsopp - explains, "I asked Elton if he knew anyone who'd be good for the role. After hearing the album, he said he had just the man."
And Nesbitt insists he jumped at the chance: "Elton called out of the blue and asked me to do it. You don't say no to him."
