The world’s hottest felon is heading to Hollywood!

Jeremy Meeks, 33, is currently in LA where he’s a wanted man by a number of movie producers who see the ex-con as a leading man in the future. Dish Nation has EXCLUSIVELY learned.

 The handsome ex-con is currently rocking the modeling world – last week he was seen sashaying along the runway at the Philipp Plein show at Milan Fashion Week.

BLESSED !!!! @amfar

Now, Jeremy is currently in the States negotiating his own movie and TV roles as he plans his assault in being a Hollywood star.

The ambitious stud even has plans to turn his own life into a movie, and would insist on starring in it as himself!

“Jeremy is making great waves in the modeling world and now a film career beckons,” an insider tells Dish Nation.

“He’s just landed in Los Angeles, where he has some big meetings with the world’s biggest movie producers to star on the big screen, or even TV. Movie bosses believe he has the right looks and a huge following to be a leading man and are ready to offer him the roles of a lifetime and help him kickstart his career. They also believe, with Hollywood’s trend for diversity, that the need for Jeremy is higher than ever before. They are drawn to his real-life rags to riches tale, and believe he could be a action movie star and or a even a love interest for a leading lady.”

Amazing time at @amfar with @nickiminaj @philippplein78 @alecmonopoly

But Jeremy himself has bolder plans for his meetings and is planning his own life story.

The insider revealed: “In an ideal world, what Jeremy really wants to do is to have his life story played out in the movies. He thinks that his colorful existence so far would be the perfect Hollywood happy ending and is posing that project to everyone he meets.”

However, there’s only one stipulation… “Jeremy is adamant that he should play himself,” the source continued.

“He understands that it would be the perfect way to launch an acting career, and what better way to do it then to play yourself. In fact, he hasn’t even entertained the idea of anyone else playing his role. Just how that will go down has to be seen.

Jeremy entered our consciousness in 2014 when what many female admirers described as “his insanely hot mug shot” appeared and he was praised for his model good looks. 

His chiseled cheeks served two years in a Californian prison after he was charged with illegal firearms possession.  

But since his release in March 2016, Jeremy hasn’t looked back and was snapped up by the modeling world as the fashion industry went wild for him.

Meeks would not be the only person who enjoys Hollywood success after a brush with the law.

Mark Wahlberg (45 days in prison for assault), 50 Cent (six months boot camp prison for drug dealing), and Stephen Fry (three months in prison on remand for credit card fraud) have all made good after a criminal start.

Just another day in the life of…
