Don't think you'll find one. The HDMI port won't know what to do with the USB data. You need something in between to convert the USB data to an HDMI video stream.

Something like Western Digital's Live Media Player: http://www.amazon.co...p/dp/B005KOZNBW

 

Currently, $79 at Amazon. Just plug your external USB drive cable into it, and plug the HDMI cable from it to your TV. Also works with network shares. and has streaming apps (like Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, etc).
