Richard Grieco

Richard Grieco was a rising star in Hollywood in the late 1980s starring in 21 Jump Street and a spin-off show, Booker, until his career suddenly derailed and began a rapid descent into obscurity.

Grieco was born on March 23, 1965 in Waterton, New York to an Italian father and Irish mother. He was an athlete during his youth and played football for Central Connecticut State University. As a young man, Grieco modeled for Armani, Calvin Klein and Chanel before studying acting.

Grieco broke into acting in the mid-1980s with minor non-recurring roles on popular television shows such as One Life to Live, Rags to Riches, Who's the Boss, The Facts of Life, and The Bronx Zoo. His break-through role that propelled him to stardom was his role as Booker on 21 Jump Street.

21 Jump Street was a police procedural crime drama television series that aired between April 1987 and April 1991. The series focused on a squad of squad of young undercover police officers investigating crimes in high schools, colleges, and other locations where youths congregate. The series was one of the Fox network's more popular shows during the network's early years. Although co-star Johnny Depp was the biggest star on the show, Grieco's character was probably a close second.

Grieco was known as a sex symbol among young women during the late 1980s for his looks and his popularity led to the Fox network offering him a starring role on the spin-off show, Booker, where he continued to play Detective Booker. Unfortunately for Grieco, however, his new show was poorly received and was cancelled after only one season.

Grieco had a guido-like appearance during the height of his stardom, much like the people who currently appear on the MTV reality show, Jersey Shore.


Grieco attempted to parlay his burgeoning stardom into a singing career. In 1994 Grieco joined the Dunmore Band. Grieco later signed a contract with a German label and released the album, Waiting for the Sky to Fall, in 1995. A decade later, in 2004, Grieco collaborated with music manager Cheryl Bogart to form the band Wasteland Park.

Grieco's acting career, however, practically ended with the cancellation of Booker in 1990 as he nearly fell off the Hollywood radar. (While still a star, he was referenced in this hilarious early-1990s skit on Saturday Night Live where a group of weight-lifters were in agreement that he needed to receive a beating.) Grieco did have a starring role in short-lived series such as Marker on the UPN network in 1995, but that series was cancelled after only 13 episodes had aired. He did have a fairly prominent role in the 1998 Saturday Night Live vehicle, A Night At The Roxbury, but his appearance didn't seem to help his career.







During the past decade, Grieco has had starring roles in minor straight-to-video flicks such as Final Payback in 2001 and Fish Don't Blink in 2002. He has also appeared in several made-for-TV movies over the years, such as Phantom Force in 2004 and Almighty Thor in 2011.

Grieco must have looked at the stardom of former co-star, Johnny Depp, with incredible envy. Perhaps he also thought that given the success of the Jersey Shore show, the time was ripe for a Grieco comeback. It appears as though Grieco may gone under the knife to get some plastic surgery in an effort to revive his floundering acting career as shown in the photos below. It appears as thought Grieco may have gotten a nose job to thin out the bridge of his nose. As a result of this apparent plastic surgery, Richard Grieco's face looks somewhat feminine and the long hair certainly isn't helping his cause!




Grieco was briefly in the news in early 2011 when it was reported that he was practically begging to take over Charlie Sheen's role on Two and a Half Men after Sheen was fired in 2011. He also recently produced the Showtime reality series entitled Gigolos, about male prostitutes and claims that he was offered up to $10k a night for gay sex back in the 1980s. Grieco may have resort to male prostitution to raise some cash now, as he reportedly owes over $44,000 in back taxes to the IRS.


Richard Grieco was one one Hollywood's rising stars in the late 1980s. However, his career suddenly and inexplicably derailed, leaving him by the wayside. In an apparent effort to jump-start his career he may have gotten some bad plastic surgery. Accordingly, there can be no doubt that Richard Grieco is one washed-up celebrity!

I heard a rumor that Richard had to take Captain Fuller's(Steven Williams) full rod up his butt pipe in order to land the role of Booker. And in doing so, Peter DeLuise and Johnny Depp also got an opportunity to ram his narrow feminine nostrils! AWESOME!

Mike Hunt said...

This was definitely worth the wait! He should change his name to Richard Gayco.

Shawn James said...

Grieco is sad. Dude should know when to pack it in and call it a career. Begging to be on 2 ans a half men? That went out with Sean Young in 91 with Batman Returns.

Finally, a new entry! Please don't have us wait until July 4th for the next one.

And now is definitely the time for a Kirk Cameron entry thanks to his latest comments about gay marriage.

Ben said...

Interesting post, though the term is "wayside" not "waste side". Seems like not every teen heartthrob (and RG was certainly one with the women in high school class around 1990-92) ages well. I wonder if he should be nicknamed "RGZero" now that Robert Griffin III has made "RG3" ubiquitous. And the posters who said Andy Dick and Kirk Cameron are crying for their own washed-up entries was right on point!

BOTR said...

^^

I've been wanting an entry on Kirk Cameron for about five years now; hopefully his time is coming very soon.

Another person I've been dying to see an entry on is fellow born-again Stephen Baldwin. I think the last "non-Christian" thing he's done was Celebrity Apprentice a couple years ago.

My 'hip', 'cool', club-hopping college roomate used to watch 21Jump Street and Booker. I hated them both. They were the stupidest shows - dump plots, bad acting, fashion oriented crap. But my roomate and his friends would look up to the characters as role models - dress like them, etc. Ok, my roomie wasn't THAT bad a guy, but he wasn't the brightest of bulbs. And I wasn't exactly Mr. personality either. Truth is, we both had a lot of learning to do about the world. Now I lost my train of thought. Oh yeah- Booker still sucks!

I always viewed Grieco as a poor mans Johnny Depp. The Greeks love their Richard Grieco, there is this Gyro place I go to and they proudly display their signed Richard Grieco headshot. Not this female one, the young manly one who I would have definitely paid 10K to shot hot loads of my juice all over his face.

". It appears as though Grieco may gone under the knife to get some plastic surgery in an effort to revive his floundering acting career as shown in the photos below."

Therein lies Grieco's problem: his early experience as heart-throb has him convinced that it's all about looks when it's not. (John C Reilly is just one example of a successful actor who isn't good looking.) It probably never occurred to Greico to invest his money and time to, say, acting lessons/coaching, voice lessons, marketing, etc., to jump start his career. Nope. He targeted his looks as the roadblock to his career comeback and, as often happens, destroyed what was left of his good looks. So sad, really.

Anonymous said...

This is so sad. I remember finding Depp and Grieco to be on the same level when I watched 21 Jump Street as a teen in reruns in the early 1990s. In fact, I thought Grieco was hotter especially because his role of Booker had that bad boy thing to it. He was definitely more handsome than Depp or just in a different way. In 21 jump street these two were the hit together. There was a time where both were equally popular and teen heart throbs.

It is sad ot see his career took such a tragic dump while Depp went on to world stardom earning the respect of his peers and colleagues. I mean why did Depp get to move on and star in the best movies while Grieco couldnt even get roles in B movies. Who knows what the secrets to fame are in Hollywood but it cant be just talent or look or any of those things we think.

But looking at Richard Grieco today. He is just pathetic. I dont know if it is plastic surgery but he looks like a fucking crack addict in his recent pictures. or some kind of a heroin addict sufferiung from anorexia. I mean look at that yellowed out skin, the bony face, thin eye brows. He looks tired. he might be 47 now but he looked like skeletor on crack when he was 40/in his late 30s.

I wonder what he does for a living since obviously isnt a full time actor.

I am sure if he had been give a chance in hollywood, he would have been able to score a great career. It is really all about that in life: working hard on yuorself and goals but also hoping someone out there gives you a chance and a shot so you can shine and show what you made of. Who knows, maybe if someone had done that with him he would now be where Depp is and maybe if Depp had Grieco's experiences, he would now be looking like a crack addict on anorexia.

Van Damme isn't that washed up, he was in Kung Fu Panda 2 last year and JCVD was a critical success. Not to mention he's supposed to appear on The Expendables 2.

Lori Petty and Tony Danza are long overdue for WUC submissions.

Van Damme is totally washed up. He went from A list to D list. According to his own admittance, he spent 50,000 a month of coke and a guest role in the new movie is not a come back from someone woh used to be A list. And his upcoming movies are all B, straight to DVD or for TV productions crap. His glory days are over and he is totally washed up.

Tony Danza was never an A lister or important. I dont think people know him from anything but Who's the boss? But I guess yeah he is probably washed up - but not in a pathetic way.

Grieco is definitely washed up though. Begging for a role. Reminds me of Corey Haim putting an ad in Variety and selling his teeth and hair for money and a gig.

By the way, why isnt Kirk Cameron in here? The guy is a total looser. Crazy nut job evangelist with a dozen kids spending most of his time spreading the gospel, replacing Darwin's origin of Species with his uneducated version and distributing it to schools and speaking out against gay people calling them abominations. Both he and his sister (Candaca) are washed up moronic doormats of the religious nut job kind. You HAVE to include Kirk Cameron.

Corey Feldman too. They are all losers.

How can you people be so cruel to another human being? I think that this man - Richard Gieco - is inspirational. He followed his dreams,worked hard, and unfortunately his career didn't take off as he'd hoped for. Give the man a break. You people are heartless and have no idea what he has personally endured. He deserves respect. At least he worked unlike so many people who take advantage of government handouts because they are lazy and not driven. I personally have not seen much of his work and cannot label myself as a fan. However, at least he contributed to the economy. Be kind. Stop being critical of others. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Richard, I wish you well and I wish you success. Best of luck, Caroline
p.s. Don't let others put you down. Remember to embrace and appreciate what you do have. Not what you don't have and bite the dog that bit ya. BTW, You do not look gay or femanine. So screw all you jealous,heartless,evil people.

Perhaps he had a deviated septum- hence the rhinoplasty-aka-nose job. It's possible. Regardless,does it really matter? What if it were you? Would you like it if you were disrespected this way? I know, I wouldn't.

Richard achieved more success than most of the commentators of this blogged combined. He stared in a TV series...co-stared in another TV series, made movies, did professional photo shoots, etc. I understand that he also is a painter and sells art. More power to him. Bashing someone whom you've never met and who's never done any harm to you...is very immature and illogical.

Saw recent pics of Grieco. Somebody take him to rehab. I'm positive it's not bad plastic surgery. Cocaine or Heroin. Hopefully he's getting the help he needs.

To the person who didn't understand why Depp got a lot further that Grieco-

Grieco, in my opinion was a shocking actor and annoyed me thoroughly on the show.

Depp is a brilliantly talented actor, he shook off the poster boy image 21 Jump Street were trying to give him, and because of that he has achieved a lot by doing incredibly interesting movies and unexpected roles.

Let's be honest, he's an individual. I can't think of anyone like him in the acting business! :)

Anonymous said...

this wasn't a very nice blog, considering the comments received, didn't know there were so many nasty people in the world, well there are. To say that looks don't matter in an industry as shallow as Hollywood is an understatement. With Casting agents, looks are the first thing they see about a person and anyone who thinks actors etc get jobs based on their 'acting ability' are naive.

It's interesting how strong opinions run on both sides--everyone is looking at the same pictures of the same guy and either saying, "He's still beautiful" or "He looks like he's dying of drug addiction/various terrible diseases/botched plastic surgery." No one seems to be neutral or say, "Yeah, he's aged, but he's okay" or whatever--it's strong feelings one way or the other...which, in his industry, is a kind of success. People talking trash about you is far better than people not talking about you.

Grieco had the goods when he was on Jump Street but I think he did like so many others and took any work for the big bucks and expected fame. Unfortunately this did not pan out.
Depp who forced into being a "teen heart throb" which he hated, said that when he was free from contractural obligations would not be at the mercy of others. He took on a lot of small and varied roles which showed the various ranges of his acting. People were aware of who he was and respected his work. That's why Johnny has the acting career that Grieco doesn't.

Wow! People have really strong feelings about Richard Grieco. That says way more about the people leaving the comments than it does about Grieco himself. I would like to clarify for some of the commenters that Grieco is neither Hispanic nor Greek. It is my understanding that he is Italian and Irish. However, neither that nor his looks shouldn't be part of the discussion. I don't think he really has had the opportunity to show off his real acting chops. I recently watched him on Celebrity Ghost Stories and I found him convincing. That's my 2 cents.

It's easy to kick someone when their down, and harder to for those same people to extend a hand or word of kindness. A lot of actors/actresses have had declines in their acting careers, only to be "rediscovered" for other parts they just didn't qualify for. I also saw him on Celebrity Ghost Stories and found him very nice looking. He would so be able to star in movies to do with vampires or warrior types. I'm hoping he makes a come back to film.

I've seen some of his movies - they aren't anything to write home about, These days, it seems sci-fi attracts a lot of former hot shots. A few comments. First, say what you like, the man has never had too big of an ego to work. Second, as for the rumors of him being gay: SO WHAT? That's not even a criticism anymore. Next - what is it about some people that they can't resist taking a shot at those who have hit a low in their lives? (Although Grieco is still in movies so I don't know if we can call this a low). Before criticizing someone else - take a good look in the mirror. I've learned the hard way that time catches up to everybody. It isn't the mark of a wicked life that the years start to show. It is only bc we are such a shallow culture that maturity counts against these people. It should be seen for what it is - a sign that someone has gained experience and seasoning. I wish we would get over this obsession with youth and respect the people who have been around long enough to have something to teach us.

Back in the summer of 95, my well established (TripJJJ)friend on Guam adopted a baby boy from Hawaii. They went through a private adoption lawyer by the name of Susan (L.N.<unk) Anyway, her client Nichole (1/2 Jap.descent) (L.N.<unk) worked as a stripper near Diamond Pt. When final adoption papers were signed Greico came in and signed over his parental rights of Kai. Nichole had 2 young daughters (kept), and subsequently gave up another baby boy 2-3 yrs later, and asked my friend if they would like to adopt him also. They declined. Anyway, about Greico being gay... maybe, but not all the time. Go figure.

Anonymous said...

I feel its kind of sad when this happens to actors. i think that an acting career should always be considered a second job, if possible, because one day you can be on top of the world and before you know it you've fallen off of the planet. He was a very handsome man, his acting was pretty good. I often wonder if an acting career solely depends s upon weather or not you have a good agent.
i dont know too much about his personal life, but college is always a pretty good idea so you have something to fall back on just incase things go sour.
I supose thats always a good idea no matter what your primary career is. Plan 'B' can and should be a necessity for everyone. who knows, maybe one day he will get a call from Mr.Tarantino and he will get a chance to shine once again. One thing you can depend on (besides my horrible spelling) lol Is that its never too late. Hes not just an actor, hes a person and last I knew..people can do whatever they want. Have hobbies, read a lot and keep busy. Our careers dont define us, our hearts do.

Ah yes, I remember Jump Street 21 very well. I liked it when I was younger, of course. I didn´t know about "Brookers" later carrer and plastic surgery.

You can't compare RGs career to Depp. I watched some old episodes of 2I JS and Depp was the only person who could act. Going to Edward Scissor hands and then
Scissor hands and then Crybaby with John Waters, most actors would never here done that and RG couldn't have done those types of roles any justice at all, most actors couldn't. with that beings said, neither actor has aged well. Depp doesn't look that great , although his face doesn't look ravaged by drugs and alcohol. RG also never had the weight of Depp either on JS. lt's a bummer because I liked RG more than liked RG more than Depp but he is just does not hone the range Depp does or if he does he either hasn't chosen the roles, found them or been given the opportunity .

First, read years ago that Richard and Johnny Depp hated each other. An interesting fact about Johnny, he's this huge star and yet his film often don't make any money? It's been said Johnny is bi. I think Richard is gay. Perhaps they hated each other because they knew each other's secret? I think Richard's gay because most straight men wouldn't admit they've been offered money for gay sex AND because Richard has yet to settle down with someone and he will be 50 next month.

I don't care what this silly article says. Booker was and always will be my favorite 21 Jump Street character. And just because Richard Grieco chose to focus more on painting than acting doesn't make him washed up. Success is not all about fame and money. If he's happy with his choices, which he says he is, then he is a success in my book.

Wow
Van Damme is hardly washed up since he was making 3-4 million for a lot of his dtv movies, and did the epic split. He accomplished more than the author ever did. Enjoy your basement, troll boy

We hung out in college for a couple of years. Totally straight, at least back in the day. Not to mention a really good guy, athlete, and musician. He comes from a normal family from upstate (Watertown) NY. I met his parents and sibs a few times. They were just normal, hard working, really nice people. He worked hard at his craft but but his fame was sudden. I'm not sure he was ever comfortable with it. We stay in touch from time to time.
