Wesley Snipes

Tax trouble: In April 2008, Wesley Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison for willfully failing to file tax returns. At the time of his sentencing, he owed $17 million in back taxes, penalties and interest. Paid up? Snipes is free on bond while he appeals the conviction. Last month, he was permitted to travel to Namibia to reshoot scenes for "Gallowwalker," a horror-western from Andrew Goth. -- Denise Martin, latimes.com
