Richard Grieco -- GUNNING for Charlie Sheen's Old Job

3/11/2011 7:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Richard Grieco believes he is the PERFECT person to replace Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men" ... and TMZ has learned he's already approached studio execs in an effort to land the role.

A rep for the former "21 Jump Street" actor tells us that Grieco's team is "actively pitching Richard to WB and Chuck Lorre to take over now that Charlie's gone."

We're told Grieco feels he's perfect for the role because he has a lot in common with Sheen's character ... including the fact they both let their siblings stay with them after a divorce.

Grieco's people also point out he doesn't have any substance abuse issues ... and insists he would be a reliable employee.

Stay tuned ...

Ted McGinley would be the obvious choice

This idiot HAS GOT TO be kidding! David Duchovny is the man for the job.

He's not the right person to step into that role and he does not have a chance.

Greico already destroyed 21 Jumpstreet by attempting to be the new bad boy to replace Johnny Depp...and now he wants to destroy another series. Greico, f off you douche. You suck.

Regardless of people's feeling about Charlie, there is NO replacing him on the show. That show was written for him to star in and he's been on the show for seven years... replacing the STAR of the show would simply be a dumb move and I can garentee the show wouldn't survive having Charlie replaced (esp by some has been like Grieco who hasn't done a worth while anything in FOREVER).

Unfortunatly, without Charlie Sheen, the show is done.
