How You Know Him: Snipes has appeared in a number of memorable films, including Passenger 57, White Men Can't Jump, U.S. Marshals, Demolition Man and, most recently, The Expendables 3. But the action star is perhaps best known for his work in the Blade trilogy.
The New Role: Snipes stars as "pit boss" Mr. Johnson in this high-concept, Las Vegas-set drama about an organization that gambles on crime. Snipes' cool charm lures his "player" -- and the audience -- in, but he shows just enough darkness to keep everyone guessing about just what his true intentions are.
