Here's the first set pics!
That's not Jones in costume, is it?
Physically, he seems to be good. Though it may take a while to accept him as Blade since Wesley Snipes has been it for so long (only three movies but it's still been for a while)
The shirt with spikes looks stupid. I blame Goyer.
The 3 pics on top are the set pics. Over at http://www.comicbookmovie.com/news/articles/2410.asp they have pictures of the main actors including the last pic of Sticky in the leather and spikes. That's not neccesarily a character pic but then again...it could be. If they're silver spikes any vamp who punches him will vaporize.
Snipes is locked up in a PPV UFC Tournament with Joe Rogan from fear factor. We'll see how that fares against this:

I know they say "always bet on black," but I'd have to put my money on Joe Rogan here..
Joe Rogan vs Wesley Snipes Fight Planned
Celebrity boxing did monster rating numbers a few years ago. It now appears a proposed Joe Rogan vs Wesley Snipes fight could do the same.
There was buzz of this rumor on several forums today and MMAWeekly.com has had this confirmed in the past hour. MMAWeekly Radio Host Frank Trigg talked briefly with Joe Rogan this afternoon to see if there was any truth to the rumor.
"It's 100% true..." Rogan told Trigg via the telephone. "I want the fight and now it's up to Wesley Snipes to accept." Snipes is a black belt in tae kwon doe and has trained in martial arts for years studying Karate, Kung Fu and Capoeira.
Rogan was a four-time state Tae kwon do champion before pursuing a career in show business. Rogan earned a black belt at 15 after just two years of training. At 19 he won the US Open Tae Kwon Do Championship, and later as a lightweight champion went on to beat both the middle and heavyweight title-holders to obtain the Grand Championship.Rogan also trains regularly with submission specialist Eddie Bravo.
Rogan said on the Underground Forum earlier in the day quote "As for Snipes motivation to fight, he wants to rejuvenate his action movie career..." Other motivation for Snipes is the fact that he owes millions of dollars in back taxes. Snipes hasn't had any new movie offers and needs to pay back taxes and hopes this kind of fight could re-launch his career.
If you ask how they can afford to pay celebrities to fight, one of the possibilities that is out there is to give the Celebes a small percentage of the deal from the actual pay per view. Rogan would not comment how much money was offered to him for the potential fight.
Wesley Snipes >>> Joe Rogan
Note from Blades: I'd pay to see this.
I got 50 bucks that says Blade kills the guy fron News Radio in under a minute.
Yeah even more reason for me to SKIP this
That is NOT Blade
That one Movie "Vampire Assasin" or w/e that is called had a better looking (Never watched it but only saw the Cover) Blade then this one
^ I wonder about that picture because there are no BLADE tattoos, etc...so maybe it's just a "fitting" picture from something else...but the background looks an awful lot like vancouver...
Someone on http://www.bladetrinity.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=2828 boards stated they saw this picture of Sticky before he was annouced as the cast. It's probably not a Blade pic.
Nelson Lee (USA Network's "Traffic") has joined the cast of Spike TV's drama pilot "Blade," based on the Marvel Comics characters. Lee is set to play Shen, Blade's loyal ally who develops new technologies for Blade to use in his fight against the vampires. Lee is repped by Stone Manners. ... Valerie Cruz has been cast opposite Paul Blackthorne in the Sci Fi Channel pilot "The Dresden Files." On the show, about occult investigator Harry Dresden (Blackthorne), Cruz will play a hard-nosed Chicago police detective who handles violent crimes and works side by side with Dresden. Cruz, best known for her one-year stint on FX's "Nip/Tuck," also appeared in the feature "Cellular." She is repped by Innovative Artists and Wilkins Management.
Note: Showing up as new news today but his pic was over at http://www.comicbookmovie.com since 11/11 I think.
Wesley Snipes isn't Blade in the TV series?
Man this is going to suck hard.
It's TV not the movies. Nobody expects it to be better than the films, however it might just be better than any other horror/action show on TV. Give it a chance. Snipes will always be the best Blade so put that aside.
It wouldnt hurt Snipes to continue his role, Have you seen some of the crap he's putting out now? Direct to Video action flicks.
a blade with no hair.. man.. i know in the comics hes bald now.. but yeah. it'll be hard to accept
What's saying he'll have no hair in the show?
if those pics are recent then their filiming him bald right? unless they give him a wig
That's what I'd like to know, myself. But maybe Advanced may be right.
Are they finished with making Blade movies now? Because then I could understand recasting.
That would be kind of dumb to have some new guy playing Blade in the TV show then they make another movie with Snipes.
Snipes is Blade personified. Nobody can match him.
anyone catch the Video Game Awards on Spike...they showed a clip from Blade.....he dresses like Wesley but he's bald
Can I please have my old ID back? Much appreciated. I like blades_shades and I've been a good boy.
That is not a pic from the show, that is from another show.
Dont worry the tv spot promo had him with the tattoos and the costume looks exaclty like the ones from the films.
wasn't he bald in the tv spot also?
Here's some more thanks to Gobsmith on the VGA thread:
People will be talking about these pics at the below link too where I posted them! Thanks Gobsmith!
