Yes, you read that right. Kevin Durant has almost conquered the NBA. But first, he's going to conquer Hollywood.

In a little more than a month, Durant will make his big screen debut in Thunderstruck! Before you watch the EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes video, here's the plot:

When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero (Kevin Durant, playing himself), he becomes the star of his high school team...while Kevin Durant suddenly can’t make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero’s season.

Obviously, if you're a Durant fan, you've gotta see this. Just curious though: For those of you who like Durant, but don't love him, are you going to go check this out? (For the record, I know I will.)

Thunderstruck is coming to select theaters August 24
