A new footage of the 'King of Pop' has emerged, which shows a nervous Michael Jackson biting his nails and mumbling lines during the shooting of a movie Miss Cast Away.
In the video clip, which was shown for the first time on TV, the pop star appears dazed and confused as he struggles with his lines for a scene, which was shot at his Neverland Ranch home in California in 2003.
The footage was presented to news show 'The Insider' by Bryan Michael Stoller, the director of the movie.
Stoller claims that Jackson appears to slur his words and struggle with his lines because he wasn't "sleeping well" at the time.
The 'Black or White' singer is seen fiddling with sunglasses and his hair as he tries to act out the scene, and a hospital name tag bracelet can clearly be seen wrapped around his wrist.
"I didn't know whether that was one of his signature things," Stoller said.
Jackson died last month at the age of 50. The toxicology reports, which will determine the cause of death, is still awaited.
However, numerous reports have claimed that the pop star died because of an overdose of prescription.
