If you look like Duke, you could be on the Duke Nukem Trilogy retail box. I was going to do this but I don’t have blond hair. If you think you fit the bill for this, they will be staging a 3 city talent contest starting this June at E3. Here’s the full release:
The Search Is on for the Next Live-Action Duke
Be the one. Be the king: “Damn, I look just like Duke!”
Hermosa Beach, Calif.- March 25, 2009 -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(TM)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.
