‘The Mighty Ducks’ Star Shaun Weiss Has Been Sober From Meth For More Than 230 Days, Receives New Teeth As A Gift

Published

Shaun Weiss, a New Jersey-born child star primarily known for his role as Greg Goldberg in The Mighty Ducks is 42 now and hasn’t been making movies for a while.

He was arrested earlier this year for allegedly breaking into a man’s garage while high on meth.

“Weiss forced entry to gain access into the vehicle by shattering a window,” police said in a statement. “Officers noticed shattered glass on the ground and observed that the passenger window to the vehicle was broken.”

Since then, Drew Gallagher, a friend of Weiss, has been helping the former actor get back on his feet. And they’re certainly making progress — Weiss has been sober for over 230 days.

“There’s not a blameless Shaun Weiss here, he is definitely to blame for a lot of stupid s— he does,” Gallagher told People earlier this year. “But if you were to spend any time with him, you would have a drastically more compassionate understanding of what he was about.”

Gallagher said that his buddy needs medical and psychiatric attention. “He’s sick, he’s mentally ill. He’s just sick and everybody gives up on him.”

Gallagher started a GoFundMe to raise money to help Weiss after his arrest. Since its launch in January, the campaign has raised over $16,000.

One of the main things Weiss needed was dental treatment, as meth abuse had destroyed his teeth. But after hearing about his situation, LA-based Dr. Gabe Rosenthal offered his services free of charge.

“He’s just a great guy,” Dr. Gabe told Page Six of Weiss. “We mesh really well.”

“He’s such a good guy, such a sweetheart. He’s putting his weight back on. He is so much more confident. He’s ready to go. He feels better. Every time I see him, he gains a few more pounds.”

“His face is filling out,” Dr. Gabe added. “He’s smiling like crazy now.”

In July, Weiss sat in Dr. Gabe’s chair to mend broken root tips, clear infections, and remove broken teeth. He then got implants followed by teeth, which are made by the same porcelain as celebrity-loved veneers. He underwent 4 oral surgeries so far, but there’s more to come.

Dr. Gabe hopes to finish his work with Weiss in early 2021. The entire process start-to-finish would’ve cost about $80,000 but since Rosenthal donated his dental services for free, the money from the GoFundMe is said to be going towards other expenses.

“(It’s) allowed Shaun to use the GoFundMe funds to pay rent at his sober-living as well as buy some groceries,” Gallagher wrote an update. “He’s even got an inexpensive laptop so he can access the Internet.”

Southern Charm: Season Seven Premiere Teased by Bravo

Published

By

Last season, ABC’s 20/20 news program dropped slightly in the ratings but the series had much smaller declines than most other shows on television. After so many years, it’s hard to imagine that 20/20 will be cancelled anytime soon but, the network could certainly change things up to try to attract more viewers. Will the series be renewed “as is” for season 44? Stay tuned.

A primetime news magazine series, the 20/20 TV show is anchored by journalists David Muir and Amy Robach. Correspondents include Juju Chang, John Quiñones, Deborah Roberts, Brian Ross, Diane Sawyer, and Jay Schadler. Created by Roone Arledge in June 1978, the program combines investigative news reports with human interest stories and other features. The venerable series’ name is derived from the 20/20 measurement of visual acuity.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

9/26 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page or view it here.

For comparisons: Season 42 of 20/20 on ABC averaged a 0.55 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.34 million viewers.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

 

What do you think? Do you like the 20/20 TV series on ABC? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a 44th season?

It looks like the two actors really got along on set and Tom Cruise inspired Glen Powell’s own need for speed. Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski, who also worked with Tom Cruise in Oblivion and helmed Tron: Legacy for Disney in 2010. The sequel is now coming out on July 2, 2021 instead of its previous date at the end of 2020 due to continued theatrical date shifts.
