STOCKTON , Calif., July 2 (UPI) -- Jeremy Meeks is making the most of his good looks.

The California convict, whose piercing blue eyes and chiseled jaw line captivated social media users last month, has signed with a Hollywood agent.

Gina Rodriguez told the Star-Ledger on Wednesday that she is helping Meeks secure modeling contracts.

"Jeremy Meeks was referred to me by a news outlet who we work with quite a bit," she said. "We have not secured jobs for him as of yet, but are in talks with several people."

Rodriguez also represents "Octomom" Nyadya Suleman and Farrah Abraham, of Teen Mom fame.

Meeks, who was arrested last month on felony weapons charges, will have to wait until he gets out of jail to model. He is being held on bail at San Joaquin County Jail, awaiting a July 8 court date.
