Wesley Snipes Signs Up for Michael Jackson Subway Tribute


Wesley Snipes
The 47-year-old actor has supported plans to pay homage to the late King of Pop at the New York subway station where they shot iconic 'Bad' video.


Wesley Snipes has backed plans to honor his late "Bad" co-star Michael Jackson at the New York subway station the iconic video was filmed. City bosses want to erect a tribute to the King of Pop at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station in Brooklyn.

Snipes, who shot scenes at the station with Jackson and director Martin Scorsese, insists it would be a worthy honor, following the star's death in June 2009. And he insists he still remembers the lessons he learned from Jackson, nearly 25 years after they met.

The actor tells WENN, "(The tribute) would be cool. The amazing thing is I was only supposed to be on the project for about three days and it turned out to be three and a half weeks; almost a month of filming."

"The thing I took from it the most was watching Michael Jackson perform at performance level in his rehearsals. I said, 'Wow that's the consummate artist right there. That's the pinnacle of where I would like to go and the skills that I would like to have as an artist; where I could come in and my rehearsals are performances.' I took that from him and that's what I've been trying to be persistent with in my work as well."
