The Search Is on for the Next Live-Action Duke

Be the one. Be the king: "Damn, I look just like Duke!"

Deep Silver, Inc. and Apogee Software today announced an open search for the next live-action Duke Nukem actor. One outstanding North American Duke will be chosen to represent the Duke Nukem Trilogy games hitting retail shelves this September. The talent contest will travel to three cities this spring, culminating at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June with the naming of a new Duke Nukem representative.

The three city contest will kick-off in New York in April and then move west to Los Angeles. The final leg of the contest will be in Dallas in May. Each stop will bring one finalist closer to being named the new live-action Duke Nukem. Aspiring Dukes will be judged on how well they personify the character's take-no-prisoners attitude. The final three Dukes will compete at a special event surrounding E3 and will end with the announcement of the new Duke.
