Actor Richard Grieco Discovered Living In Storage Unit On Episode of ‘Storage Wars’

The cast and crew of A&E’s hit reality show, “Storage Wars,” were shocked this morning to find Former ’80s heartthrob Richard Grieco living inside an abandoned storage unit opened during the filming of an upcoming episode.  The former “21 Jump Street” star has been residing for over a year inside the unit, which was recently put up for auction after Grieco failed to pay the rent.

According to the rules of “Storage Wars,” where numerous collectors bid on abandoned storage units, anything inside one, even a washed up TV actor, belongs to the winning bidder.  In the case of Grieco’s unit, one of the show’s most popular personalities, Barry Weiss, came in with the winning bid of $250.  Weiss immediately loaded Grieco into his truck and took him to a local Hollywood pawn shop to have him appraised.

Unfortunately for Weiss, well-known pawn shop owner Elliott Salter was less than impressed with the out-of-date Grieco.

“If this was a 1989 Richard Grieco in mint condition, maybe he would be worth some money,” said Salter.  “Unfortunately, this Grieco’s seen better days.”

Grieco was hoping to revive his acting career, which dried up in the early ’90s, by making a cameo in this year’s hit comedy “21 Jump Street,” starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, but the call from producers never came.

“I’m so glad Johnny Depp got to make a cameo in the ’21 Jump Street’ remake,” said a bitter Grieco.  “That guy really needed the work.”

After Salter offered $25 for Grieco, Weiss decided to keep Grieco for his own private collection which includes actor Corey Feldman, whom he’s owned since discovering him living inside a storage unit he bought three years ago.

      Repercution? Do you frequently switch to french in the middle of a sentence or do you just not know how to spell?

      Apparently it was lost on you that this is a parody site. Film critics aren’t really calling in sick to avoid Adam Sandler movies, either.

        Aren’t parody sites supposed to be funny though?

        Given that this one very much isn’t, as clearly proven by the piece above, one could be forgiven for mistaking it for something else, or just not getting the (supposed) joke.

    This faux article is not funny. It’s just sad. Stick to Taylor Kitsch stories.

    I’m an actor living in LA. I’m from the same hometown and high school as Richard Grieco. I understand this is a parody site but just for people who might not get that Richard Grieco is doing just fine. We have the same voice-over agent, and he does Nissan commercials.

    Parody site or not, people from Watertown, New York have each others back.

    You know something NOT FUNNY. There are so many people homeless and struggling right now. At 53, healthy, and collage educated, I am very seriously researching living in a VW van in Hawaii renting parking in someones drive way over night. We are struggling in CA right now just to pay rent on a tiny studio in Walnut Creek 1500.00 a month. I am actually applying to work at Mc Donald’s so I can get Medical coverage as now I have found a lump in my neck. As I read this I really felt sad to think that, that could have happened to him and hoped that he would be ok. For many people this is a realty, this their life, and very fearful indeed.

      I’m sorry that your collage education didn’t pan out for you. Perhaps you should have studied photomontage instead.
