My first thought when I read the title was this guy

It could be a different guy. Brick would use shotguns and rocket launchers, not machine guns.

I never played Brick in Borderlands, but judging from the pictures you posted, Brick has a big scar on his left cheek and the new guy doesn't. Unless it magically healed...

Scar on forehead is also on other side.

Sick of these hairist developers. Beards are for the bald man. Not the hipster.

Weren't the mercs from 1 searching for things? I remember Lilith looking for another Siren (Commander Steele was a Siren, not sure if its the one Lilith was looking for) and I'm quite sure the other 3 had some kind of reason to be there besides the vault...
 
Perhaps the new chars/classes will be (some of) the guys they were looking for.
Or something, bleh.
 
I just want Moxxie and Lilith back.

Well he looks like a completely different person in almost every way, so I'm guessing not.

That's actually Brick's sister. He was looking for her in Pandora. That's some Borderlands lore for y'all, duders.

See? Proves my point: siblings have facial hair.

In all seriousness, Zed and Ned are two different characters, actually. The sweet 'stache started as a joke, but eventually became true. You can see both of them at the same time in one of Claptrap's webisodes and when you kill him in the Claptrap's New Robot Revolution DLC, Ned says something in the lines of "tell my brother I was more handsome than him". Besides, you can actually talk to Zed in the General Knoxx and Claptrap's DLCs :P

Guy's confirmed not to be Brick, but Salvador, a Gunzerker.
Basically dual wields any two weapons
 
Or so VG24/7 claims...

Multiple places have been saying that the GI article says that the old classes are npc's now, and GI's site confirms the existence of a gunzerker. So no way that's Brick.

I think everyone is missing the point is that he is holding 2 ... TWO guns!

This could be literally the exact same game as the first Borderlands but with beards and I'd be perfectly okay with that.

I'm glad no one even mentioned that the Gunzerker is SHORTER than Brick.
