    Jeremy Meeks is landing modeling jobs, his newly-hired talent agent says.

    The hot felon may soon get even hotter.

    Jeremy Meeks, the Stockton man whose mug shot blew up the Internet after police posted it to Facebook, now has a Hollywood talent agent who is trying to sign him to a modeling contract, according to reports.

    Fox News reported that the 30-year old has been signed by Gina Rodriguez, the agent who worked with the stars of "Teen Mom" as well as Nadya "Octomom" Suleman.

    Rodriguez, a former porn actress, says that Meeks hasn't "got a fair break" and wants to help him "turn his life around."

    Offers are already rolling in, she said.

    For now, Meeks is only modeling orange jumpsuits: he's in San Joaquin County Jail on $1.1 million bail for 11 felony counts.

    Meeks's family is also trying to raise money from his many admirers for a legal defense fund, which has thus far only mustered $4,850 in contributions, Fox reported.
