Everyone loves Wesley Snipes. The actor, who served out his 3-year sentence on failure to file taxes was released in 2013 and is back in the big screen, where he belongs. He’s in Expendables 3 with Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson and Jason Statham which opens today. Snipes says he’s very happy to be back.
“Whenever you can do what you love to do and do it with some of your friends,and make new friends at the same time, it’s a wonderful thing,” he told the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “I got a chance to work with some of the best of the best in this particular game. “
Snipes plays a character called Doc in the action movie which is classic good guys against the bad gays fare and has become somewhat of a franchise. Snipes didn’t mind a few jokes thrown in at his expense.
“Everyone’s going to joke about that,” Snipes says of his tax conviction. “I’m going to have to deal with that for the next couple of years, maybe until I do another Blade or something like that.”
Fans of the Snipes’ vampire killer series hope another one is on the way, but Snipes says there’s nothing confirmed yet.
