Does anyone remember that time in 2014 when Internet ladies showed no chill and made the mug shot of Jeremy Meeks go viral, with some people even suggesting he should be a model? The "hot felon" was sentenced to 27 months in prison in July 2015 but he was released on the morning of March 9.
He also followed the Internet's advice to become a model.
Meeks announced on his official Instagram account that he is ready to face the next phase of his life with a career in modeling. Apparently, White Cross Management is giving Meeks his second chance and his agent Jim Jordan is helping him weigh his options with different agencies.
"We're in talks with a lot of different agencies. There's [sic] movies on the table. We have a lot of different things happening," Jordan revealed.
Meeks was arrested in 2014 and was found guilty of possession of firearms. He must have been in his best behavior while in prison, because not only were the other prisoners good to him, but he also served only a year out of the 27-month sentence.
It does seem like he really is planning to make his family's life better by putting his good looks and physique to his advantage.
Meeks is indeed going ahead with his plan to model but everyone who follows him on Instagram knows what the 32-year-old is really looking forward to upon his release: spending time with his three kids. How else would anyone interpret an official Instagram account filled with photos of Meeks and his family and with majority of the photos captioned with a countdown to the day he finally reunites with his children?
