Default Duke Nukem in Borderlands 2?

I've been thinking that since Gearbox now owns the Duke Nukem IP they could maybe put Duke Nukem in Borderlands 2 as an unlockable character, multiplayer character or maybe even an easter egg.

Please make it happen Gearbox!

A side-quest making fun of the critical reception or something along those liens could be fun.

If Duke was in Borderlands 2, I think it would be more of a cameo than an actual role.

I suppose Duke could be in Borderlands 2, not as a playable character, maybe he owns a bar on Pandora and you do a few errands for him.

Maybe a back story could be that after the events of DNF he wants some R&R and ships off to Pandora where he wouldn't be bothered by anyone.

I am talking purely BS but i dont doubt that there wouldnt be some sort of Duke Easter egg in Borderlands 2.

Yeah they should definately bring Duke Nukem as an unlockable character with all of the voice acting that Duke has for Borderlands 2. He'll be like "What the hell?!?! These creature bastards are going to pay for shooting down my ride."

I doubt it would be that elaborate. They already had a borderlands reference in DNF with the last of the bucket-head achievement, so if anything, it would likely be a similar easter-egg such as maybe finding in a random building/outpost duke's gold pistol and a quarter of a wall lined up and down with solid black sunglasses and maybe a sign above them that says "spares" with the nuke emblem below.

well, there was a borderlands reference in DNF, so I assume there will be a DN reference in B2
