OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant wasn’t sure at first that he wanted to be a movie star and a basketball star.
It took some peer pressure and some encouragement from his mother, but now Durant is bringing Hollywood to Oklahoma City for a few days. The two-time NBA scoring champion filmed scenes from the upcoming movie “Thunderstruck” Tuesday at the team’s home arena, including the pivotal sequence when his basketball skills are magically switched with a clumsy teenager.
Warner Bros. crews have spent the past few days filming in Oklahoma City and plan to finish up after the Thunder’s game Wednesday night.
Durant says he’s nervous to find out what people think of his acting but he’s pleased with the experience regardless.
However, he doesn’t think he’d want to do it again, saying “I’m just playing basketball.”
