Kevin Durant's 'Thunderstruck' has lots of Oklahoma City touches

While much of “Thunderstruck” was filmed in Baton Rouge, La., Oklahoma City plays a major supporting role in Kevin Durant's big-screen debut.

The most notable local flavor in “Thunderstruck” comes when local personalities make cameo appearances. KFOR-TV Channel 4's Kevin Ogle, Linda Cavanaugh and Bob Barry Jr. appear in an on-camera segment discussing Durant's reversal of fortune. However, the most memorable cameo belongs to Wanda Pratt, Durant's mother. Her brief performance, full of energy and warmth, steals the show from Durant, and there is a good chance that the Thunder forward did not mind it a bit.
