The last time fans of Wesley Snipes saw him in a major blockbuster movie was a decade ago in Blade:Trinity.

Since then, the Jungle Fever star appeared a slew of direct-to-DVD films and small-budget projects.

In 2010 Snipes began serving a 3-year prison sentence after being convicted on tax evasion charges.

Last year Snipes signed on for his first major post-prison gig, a starring role alongside Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Jet Li, Kelsey Grammer and Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Expendables 3.

The action film series, which features several aging icons of the genre, have raked in huge box office results. The first two films have earned over half a billion dollars worldwide.

The film hits theaters nationwide August 15,2014.

Do you think Wesley Snipes still has what it takes to be a leading man in Hollywood?
