    Fallen actor Wesley Snipes, who saw his heyday of action films and dramas in the '90s, can't dig his heels in the earth any longer. Snipes, 48, has been ordered to start his three-year sentence for failing to pay taxes at a federal prison in Pennsylvania next week, reports The Associated Press.

    The U.S. Marshal's Office issued a notice Wednesday ordering the actor to voluntarily surrender at the Federal Correctional Institution McKean in Pennsylvania by noon on December 9. Snipes had tried unsuccessfully to remain free on bail while appealing his conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the authorities did not grant that request.

    Snipes was convicted in 2008 for willful failure to file income tax returns.

    Should Snipes make like T.I. and man up and show up to serve his sentence?
