Actor Wesley Snipes has had a wide range of roles throughout his career whether it is playing an FBI agent, a fugitive on the run, or a vampire vigilante. His range has been severely limited though as he is currently serving a three-year prison sentence for tax evasion. With that, pics of his living quarters and some letter he’s written to fans have now found their way online.
Check out where Wesley Snipes is currently spending his time
The 70 square-foot cell at the Federal Correctional Institution is where Snipes has been since he started serving his sentence in late November 2010.
While there, Snipes has kept in touch with fans through way of letters and even a website called freeSnipesnow.com which posts information on how to send letters to the actor as well as organizing rallys for his release.
An excerpt from a blog post on February 1, 2011 reads:
“55 days and counting…”: What a ride! Fellows that have done bids…smart ones… say, “just take it one day at a time, focus on the past and present, the future will come.” Well, that makes sense some of the time. I’m down with living in the present, that’s really all you can do, but focusing on the past, sometimes is too painful, while focusing on the future can be scary as hell. For the man “locked down” there is sound value in the saying though.”
Word had also gotten out that Snipes would be willing to do another film in the Blade franchise if it is under the right circumstances. This of course wouldn’t be until after his release which is still a ways off. He hopes that fans will always remember him while he’s gone and continue to support him.
Fans, again I thank you for all of your letters but I just can’t respond to all of them. I have a cool idea I’m working out which will give me a chance to show my gratitude and maybe even meet some of you face to face in the future. It’ll be something very special that I think you all will get a kick out of and a memory that’ll last forever. That’s why I need pictures, pictures of people, places or things that connect the message with you. Remember I’m a filmmaker!
Peace and Love,
For now he must continue his sentence and hopes for support from all his fans. It will be a while, but as soon as Snipes has something new in theatres, fans in the New Orleans area can go order their tickets and find showtimes here for the Chalmette Movies, Elmwood Palace, and Palace at Clearview Mall.
