Larry King Might Have Saved Wesley Snipes

“Always bet on black. I mean, Jew.”

Wesley Snipes is scheduled to go to jail today for failing to file his taxes five years in a row because apparently that’s illegal. (Side note: What are taxes?) Anyway, Monday night he appeared on Larry King Live where it was shockingly revealed one of the jurors comments on this site which is how I interpreted this information. TMZ reports:

During the show, Larry read a statement from a member of the jury that convicted Snipes during his tax evasion trial which said, “There was one juror that had said they knew Mr. Snipes was guilty right when they first saw him during the jury selection.
Wesley’s legal team immediately jumped into action — and moments ago, they filed an emergency motion for a new trial based on juror misconduct.

Although, in this juror’s defense, it’s nice to see tax evasion is no longer considered just a white man’s sport. We’ve come a long way, America. We’ve come a long way…

UPDATE: And it didn’t work. Blade’s in the pokey.
