Convicted felon Jeremy Meeks, of California known more for his good looks than for his crimes was freed from prison this month and is looking forward to becoming a model and actor.
Meeks became known as the ‘Hot Felon’ after his baby-blue eyes, razor-sharp cheekbones and chiseled jawline first caught the public’s attention when his mug shot was posted on the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page in 2014.Despite being behind bars for felony possession of a firearm, the 30-year-old was signed by talent agency, White Cross Management last year under Jim Jordan.Meeks wrote on an Instagram photo posted this week:
‘I want to thank my family and everybody for all your love, support and prayers. I’m overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. I’m ready.
‘I’m in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life,’ Meeks told ABC News from a Nevada prison last February.
‘I never thought that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful.’
While Jordan told BuzzFeed this week following Meek’s release…
‘We’re putting everything in place.
‘We’re in talks with a lot of different agencies. There’s movies on the table. We have a lot of different things happening.’
