Movie Trivia

Actor Wesley Snipes In a last ditch effort to pay over due taxes before going to jail, opened a chain of shoe stores in Germany. The stores, Snipes shoes used to just sell black shoes, with ads featuring a photo of Wesley Snipes from the film Passenger 57 with the quote “Always bet on black”. With their limited color selection the stores did poorly and Snipes sold his interest in the business.
