I hear his latest one, The Contractor, is actually pretty good. It'll find its way on my Netflix queue at some point.

on a more lugubrious note; Wesley Snipes' career would have been 19 today, had he not killed it

Snipes was by far the only actor they could've gotten for Blade, and I personally wish he'd get out of the career funk he's in right now and do another of them...

Doubt Dave Goyer would work with him again.

why? did they have beef or something? actually . . . I kind of remember hearing about some kind of infringement of Snipe's contract, is that right? Goyer is a decent writer, but horrible director . . .

Bingo.

Wesley Snipes hated Blade: Trinity as much as the rest of us, and made no attempt to hide it while filming.

Snipes hated the direction Goyer was taking with Blade Trinity, because there was too much focus on the Nightstalkers. Yeah, most would write it off as ego-trippin, but New Line clearly meant for Trinity to merely be a transition film for a Nightstalkers franchise, so Snipes (having served as a producer on all three films) being pissed is somewhat understandable. And Goyer clearly didn't have a clue what he was doing. Even by his own admission, he wanted to cast as many comedic actors as possible, leadingto all the ridiculously forced humor.

^yeah . . . to be honest, I didn't even make it halfway through that piece of garbage . . . you would have thought Snipes would have had more say (being a producer) in hiring the director he wanted . . .

Wes needs to get back on the big screen, and leave those straight to dvd movies alone. Anyhow, happy b day Snipes!

Snipes has so much charisma and a very definite intensity. He needs a comeback role.

I heard Snipes didn't find out till very shortly before shooting that Goyer would be at the helm, and he was extremely pissed when he found out.

Wesley got screwed. Del Toro passed Blade: Trinity for Hellboy, Stephen Norrington was unavailable, and New Line (for some odd reason) hired David Goyer to direct. I ended up getting screwed by watching the film. Everybody else got screwed for watching the film. Blade (as a franchsise) got screwed, and will probably never see any more spotlight for the next 200 years.

With that said, do some big films again, Wesley Snipes, and Happy B-Day!

Default Wesley Snipes claims to be a victim of racism...

Actor Wesley Snipes has slammed the media for portraying him as a "bad guy" after he was charged with tax fraud, claiming he is a victim of racism. Snipes, 45, is due to stand trial next month in Florida on charges he fraudulently claimed tax refunds of almost $12 million in 1996 and 1997. He is also accused of failing to file tax returns from 1999 to 2004. But the star has blamed the press and its racial prejudice for over-exaggerating the scandal, and depicting him as a villain. He says, "It was easy for people to jump on the 'Wesley's the bad guy' bandwagon. That's where I think the systematic racism comes in. We're conditioned in this country to believe that if there's a problem, the black man is the culprit." Snipes also blames discrimination for the box office failure of his 2004 movie Blade: Trinity. He adds, "There are so few guys who do action and do it well. Even fewer who are African-American. Even fewer who have classical-theater training. So a cat like me coming in, I'm bringing all of that to an action movie. Since there are so few people that do this and have that pedigree, people disregard their contribution."

Yeah... I'm sure that tax evasion thing had nothing to do with it.
