The Search Is on for the Next
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
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.
