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 ...

wtf is this replacing charlie with ths *** he that some nasty crap there. No one can replace charlie, hes one one of a kind, irreplaceable. You can't compete with that. Charlie was wrongfily fired. He was ready to come back to work, so he can back, then before anything happened you fire him. wtf is that, thats wrong. Chuck Lorre and warner bros. guess what you have a mental retardation problem, you don't do that. Your %$^**@! problem is you messed up a perfectly good show one of the best in years and you can't leave anyone alone and just let them do their thing. See what you did, that show, if you replace, will go up in flames, no one beats charlie not matter what happened.
