Actor Wesley Snipes has been sentenced to three years in prison as punishment for failing to file his tax returns. The actor sat stone-faced â€" while many in the courtroom gasped â€" when the sentence was read.

Fortunately, Wesley Snipes can use his basketball skills from White Men Can't Jump to make new friends in jail.
