What The Hell Happened To Wesley Snipes?
From the A-list to direct-to-video...the Tomatometer tracks where he went wrong.
A Karate-Kicking Vampire Changes Everything
Things were looking very unsettled for Wesley Snipes following a half-decade of questionable career choices. And then there was Blade. Starring as the half human, half-vampire daywalker Blade, Snipes drew his biggest opening weekend yet -- and without the added box office draw of a co-star like Stallone, Connery, or De Niro. With a $130 million worldwide take, Blade not only started a three-film franchise, it also proved the power of the superhero film. Snipes received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and for the first time in twelve years, took a break from acting.
Unfortunately for Snipes, he also opted to take a break from paying taxes, and didn't file for the years between 1999 and 2004.
