Wesley Snipes born on July 31, 1962, in Orlando, Florida is an American actor and producer. Snipes was grown up on the streets of the South Bronx in New York City, where he decided early on that he wanted to be a dancer until he took some acting classes. Started the high school for the Performing Arts, he began to build his dream to get in the musical theater and commercials that definitely faded as his mother filed in divorce from his father and decided to move to Orlando, Florida before he could graduate from high school. Lived in his new environment, Snipes went to local high school while he also did puppet theater, mime and musical theater in many competitions and festivals. Finished his high school, he attended the State University of New York College at Purchase and graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in 1985. Soon afterward, he began performing in local dinner theaters and regional productions before an agent finally spotted and got him a role in "Wildcats" (1986), a film tells about a high school track coach who knows just as much about football as anyone else on the planet.
