Snipes Snapped in Namibia

10/23/2006 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wesley Snipes was spotted in Swakopmund, Namibia posing with a local artist in a gym recently, as the actor avoids the long arm of US justice in the African nation, whether intentionally or not. The "Blade" star also signed another photo that he took with the artist with the following inscription: "From one great artist to another ... long life and bright light, Wesley Snipes."

The next bright light Snipes faces, of course, might be that of U.S. marshals seeking his arrest, as he is wanted here on charges of tax fraud. Joanne Reay, one of the producers of "Gallowwalker," the film on which Snipes is working in Nambia, told the Associated Press today, "As far as we understand, Wesley is not going to be arrested in Namibia." What's more, Snipes is expected to stay in Namibia until December.

According to Reay, Snipes is not staying at the same luxurious lodge at which Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stayed when Jolie was pregnant and gave birth to their daughter Shiloh Nouvel this summer.

Snipes, do your thing dawg much respect to you and due to all the hype & press you will be getting the longer you stay outta arms reach of the law your new movie is going to blow up big time9Love the Title) so the governement would be wise to let you chillin' so you can pay them back. No harm no foul. The government should be more focus on our good men & women in harms way or how Bush is f***in' us all over.

From one great artist to another ... dude, get over yourself. Your skills are mediocre at best. Anyway, get your ass back here, you've got jail time to do.

Well it looks like Mr. Snipes is not so intent on going into "hiding" after all, rather he is viewing this as a press opportunity it seems. Well you can't blame him, except for blade 2 has he had a "successful movie since blade 1"? (blade 3 doesn't count as it did not do well, and I know success is a relative term, he could just be a huge straight to dvd star, like the other washed up action stars) This is likely to kill his career for a bit though, and he'll eventually have to give up some up the back tax money, so there's a good chance he good be, well... kind of "poverty stricken" and he is living in africa now.... so if you think about it, maybe it's not so bad, what with all the celebrities running over to africa these days to avoid labor inducing stretch marks by purchasing kids, Poor ole Wesley might just get adopted by some rich white couple from hollywood and the poof, all problems in life solved! (I hope that you understood and grasp the humour in this, being adopted by a rich "white" hollywood couple is meant to parody recent events"

What he needs is some LOTION for that freaking Ashy ass skin of his. I'm sure he can still afford some Jergens can't he?

Regarding #5: You've proven my point about stupid people. God must love 'em, he made plenty of 'em. Feel free to visit www.imdb.com and you'll see what Snipes has been doing, in addition to seeing the movies he has lined up for the future. It's no big secret. Movies are shot all over the world, Einstein.

There is ((no extradition treaty)) where hes at. You will never see him back in the U.S.A. again to face 10 years or more in prison. He can live like a king with his money where he's at. Can you say ((( ROMAN POLANSKI )). Bye Bye forever.

Wesley ,Wesley
Your not that good of enough an actor. When you were filming here in Nevada at the state prison or the film “Undisputed” you may have been practicing. When you here you had a little attitude. Well sooner or later you’ll come back to the states.

I'd love to see you say that to his face. It would be fun to see Wesley will kick your faggoty metal ass up and down the street.

Go back to jerking off to your Axel Rose poster.

Btw, it's the picture that makes him look that way, you Metal Moron.
