Snipes is free... ish

A federal judge has signed off on Wesley Snipes' request that he be able to leave the country to do some more acting work while he waits out the appeals process regarding his conviction on tax-evasion charges.

"According to Senior U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges' ruling, Snipes is allowed to go to London this month to complete post-production on GALLOWWALKER and then to Bangkok in September to film the action flick CHASING THE DRAGON.

Prosecutors objected to what they called Snipes' vague estimate of how long he'd be spending in Thailand (eight weeks, the actor said), saying it's one thing to let him go to England for a week but another to allow him to spend at least two months "beginning a new project half-way around the world with an open-ended return date."

There's a really interesting debate to be had here as to whether Snipes deserves this. Of course, that also begs the question, why do celebrities seem to be above the law? However, I find the real question is who the fuck thought it was clever to have Wesley Snipes' character in CHASING THE DRAGON be called 'Agent Bo Munroe'? I don't know exactly who that was, but rest assured: I hate that guy.
