From California inmate to actor? It seems anything is possible for the "dreamy mugshot guy" with piercing blue eyes and a teardrop tattoo. Less than two years after his mugshot went viral, Jeremy Meeks was released from prison on Tuesday where he was serving time for weapons charges and is entertaining multiple job offers, including acting jobs, reports the Los Angeles Times. "We're in talks with a lot of different agencies," manager Jim Jordan tells BuzzFeed. "There's movies on the table. We have a lot of different things happening."

The husband and father of three previously told ABC News that he'd be interested in joining the cast of "a show like Sons of Anarchy," but we'll have to wait a bit longer to see what his future holds. Jordan says Meeks will spend the next few weeks in transitional housing "before he is completely free to start his new journey." "I want to thank my family and everybody for all your love, support and prayers," Meeks wrote on Instagram on Wednesday. "I'm overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. I'm ready."
