Wesley Snipes

More than becoming an action star,  Wesley Snipes became the first African-American to land a hit action hero film franchise when he landed the lead role in the successful Blade series. As Blade, a superhero based on the Marvel Comics character, Snipes played a human-vampire hybrid out to protect humans from vampires.
