Kendrick Sampson Wants to Play Jeremy Meeks in Hot Mug Shot Guy Movie

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Over the past few days, Jeremy Meeks - aka Hot Mug Shot Guy - has taken the Internet by storm. 

But while most web celebs are unable to translate their online notoriety into real world fame - Meeks is already getting attention from Hollywood. Well, kinda....

While the 30-year-old Stockton, CA resident may have hoped that his jail house headshot might lead to some acting or modeling, it's instead resulted in something much more unexpected:

  • Kendrick Sampson Photo
  • Jeremy Meeks Mugshot

Vampire Diaries star Kendrick Sampson posted side-by-side photos of himself and Meeks with the caption, "My next role #JeremyMeeks."

Sadly, Kendrick appears to have been joking and even Hollywood would have difficulty turning one photograph into a feature film.

Meeks has denied being a drug kingpin and was picked up during a routine gun sweep in his native Stockton.

Not exactly the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters, but even so, Meeks' story has generated more interest than the typical viral sensation so don't be surprised if you end up seeing more of Hot Mug Shot Guy. 

One thing is for certain, if the web is in need of an actor to play Meeks in the inevitable Funny or Die spoof or YouTube video based on the mug shot sensation, they've certainly found their man in Sampson.

To check out Kendrick at work, you can always watch The Vampire Diaries online at TV Fanatic. And, of course, get your Hot Mug Shot Guy fix below:
