Last summer, a guy named Jeremy Meeks became Internet famous when his mugshot went viral online. Arrested on felony weapons charges, Meeks earned the nicknames "Hot Mugshot Guy" and "Hot Convict" and actually reached meme status, with people Photoshopping his face into fake fashion ads for brands like Calvin Klein. According to ABC News, Meeks is still serving time behind bars, but that hasn't stopped him from launching a modeling career.

"I’m in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life," said the felon from the Nevada prison. "I never thought that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful." Meeks told reporters that he has been working on his appearance so that he can start working with an agent at White Cross Management when his sentence is over. "I eat healthy. I do a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, dips, burpees, and I stay very active."

The "Hot Convict" also said that he wants to act and wishes that he could be on a show like Sons of Anarchy, which is ironic given that he wants to change his image and the show centers around a motorcycle outlaw gang.
