Weiss, per a report from TMZ, originally planned to commemorate the anniversary on Tuesday by paying a visit to one of his favorite California spots, Brent’s Deli. The plan was to link up with his friend Drew Gallagher (also an actor) at the restaurant, though Weiss ultimately opted for takeout due to feeling “under the weather” as of late.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with 12 amazing steps,” Weiss wrote on Instagram when sharing side-by-side comparison photos of himself earlier this week. In another post shared the same day, Weiss thanked fans for their love and support, as well as advised anyone who may be struggling and in need of treatment to reach out to the Quest 2 Recovery alcohol and drug addiction treatment center.
As previously reported, Weiss—who played goalie Greg Goldberg in the original three Ducks films—completed a court-ordered drug program last July. At the same time, Weiss also had a burglary case tossed, with the Yuba County District Attorney’s Office praising the actor for having shown “perseverance during his recovery” despite complications from the pandemic and a “serious accident” involving a family member.
