    Add movie star to Kevin Durant's resume.

    Kevin Durant is going from representing the red, white and blue to walking the red carpet.

    Adding to a resume that already includes being a three-time NBA scoring champion and Olympic gold medalist, Durant was the star as his movie "Thunderstruck" premiered in Oklahoma City on Sunday night. It opens in other theaters Friday.

    Durant strolled down a red carpet in a black T-shirt, grey vest, white jeans and black sneakers to answer questions about his acting skills instead of the deadly shooting ability that propelled the Oklahoma City Thunder to the NBA Finals last season.

    Durant says the film was an opportunity to try something new and show that there's more to him that simply being a basketball player.
