Richard Grieco

I'll Be in the SECOND

'21 Jump Street' Movie

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude this is 2012, you're dressing like a E-lister, stuck in the 70's - something between a white pimp/disco dancer/homeless person with a mental disorder.

Now why would Depp have a cameo and not Grieco...well Depp has a successful career and is relevant. While Grieco is seen wearing that shirt, and still going to the premiere for attention. Nice of him/TMZ making it sound like he'll do the sequel out of generosity, instead of desperation.

If I remember correctly, Richard was a unwanted douche and was given a spin-off to get rid of him.
Booker sucked harder than Pamela Anderson at an 80s rock star convention

Dude is totally unrecognizable.

He should lie down and take a long nap.

OMG my sister was in LOVE with Richard Grieco back in the day. Almost to the point of frighteningly stalking the poor guy. Jesus, she'll sure be glad she didn't end up with the likes of him. Oh My.
