He was DISSED by producers in the first "21 Jump Street" movie, but Richard Grieco (who starred in the classic TV series) tells TMZ ... he WILL be involved in the sequel -- REDEMPTION!!!!!!

Grieco -- who played alongside Johnny Depp in the TV series -- was noticeably absent from the Jonah Hill remake ... even though Depp got a cameo.

But last night, Grieco was hanging out in a funky shirt at the Pantages Theater in L.A. ... and he simply explained ... NOBODY EVER ASKED HIM!

Despite the burn ... Grieco did tell us producers are making things right ... saying, "I'll be doing the sequel."

GRIECOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The real reason why they didn't put Grieco in the movie is because there was no way they could even bother to acknowledge the failed spin-off which lasted for only one season with his character from "21 Jump Street" as the lead. (That, and the horrible theme tune performed by Billy Idol... *yuck!*)

Does anyone actually take the time to realize that Grieco was only in there for season 3 of 21 Jump Street and only 18 episodes... Unlike Peter and Johnny who were there for much longer, having 88 and 80 episodes respectively. I believe their cameos were much more warranted.
