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 ...

I dunno, he seems pretty inebriated whenever I see him hanging out at Rocco's on Ventura.

They made a monkey where an earring? That's cruelty to animals.

Whoever they choose...don't do some stupid "Charlie's long-lost brother" nonsense. Do a soap opera voice-over "The role of Charlie Harper is now being played by......" and then let it go. For years, soap opera viewers have gotten used to (very quickly, in fact) changes in casting. I think it would work in this case.

john stamos is the best choice i've heard so far. he looks similar to charlie and has pretty much played the same type of role in full house. he could make it work i think.
