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 ...

The only idea worse than this one is Lowe. Lorre pick up your marbles game is over!! The show IS dead without Sheen, you know it to. You can spend time spinning around Hollywood to replace Sheen and you never will, the role is Sheen. Charlie is Charlie Sheen. Pay him off and close the door and move forward...

Oh, please let this be a prank! For those who aren't aware, the show was written based on charlie's life so, without charlie, there's no show...p.s. i agree with that whole 'men who wax their eyebrows' being a big DON'T. What fool does that and thinks it's a good look?!

Forget about it, Two and half men is OVER. What are they going to do say he had a face lift? Charlie is Charlie.

There only hope is to kill Charlie off and give Alan the house. But then again who wants to WATCH ALAN .. Show OVER

What out-of-work actor has a team? And what does it say about those that are his "team"? Out-of-work burger flippers?

Hmmm... I don't recall ever having seen his comedic side, so I don't know if he could pull this off.

Rob Lowe and Robert Downey, Jr. are the best candidates to fill Charlie's shoes. Big shoes to fill and I am sick at heart at his severe illness making it necessary. I think it is worth trying to fill them, they have a great team, the show's premise is worth lots of laughs... move on and DO IT!

hey, why not...he can make a career of it-- didn't he also take over for Johnny Depp on 21 Jumpstreet as the "not as good looking replacement?"

Whether it's this douche or Rob Lowe....it will be the perfect replacement. One 80's B star replacing another.
