Jeremy Meeks (pictured), 30, 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. Despite being behind bars felony possession of a firearm, the 30-year-old was signed by talent agency, White Cross Management last year under Jim Jordan.
‘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,’ Meeks wrote on an Instagram photo posted this week.
‘We’re putting everything in place,’ Jordan told BuzzFeed this week following Meek’s release. We’re in talks with a lot of different agencies. There’s movies on the table. We have a lot of different things happening.’
‘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.’
Meeks told ABC last year that he worked out regularly to be camera ready after his release.
‘I eat healthy. I do a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, dips, burpees, and I stay very active,’ he added.
Meeks has his eye on acting as well and told ABC that he would love to be on a show like Sons of Anarchy.
‘There is a sea of opportunities waiting for him,’ Jordon told ABC.
Meek said what he misses most is his family.
‘I was just thinking about missing my family,’ he said. ‘I was really thinking about my son a lot at that moment, that was the only thing that was on my mind.’
He said his family has been very supportive of him.
‘I’ve got a lot of support my family, my friends, and from my fans – I get hundreds and hundreds of letters every month. I’m very thankful for all the support I’ve been getting,’ Meeks said.
