Tuesday marked the 2-year anniversary of Shaun Weiss’ sobriety, and he decided to celebrate the occasion with some takeout, but the original plan was meant to be much more symbolic.
Friend and fellow actor Drew Gallagher was supposed to go with Shaun to Brent’s Deli in the Valley. Back in 2017, this was the first place he got a meal once released from jail, so it meant a lot for him to come full circle.
Unfortunately, Shaun has been under the weather lately, but no worries – he chose the takeout option from Brent’s and still got his matzo ball soup!
Shaun struggled with drug addiction for years and at one point was living on the streets. He had multiple run-ins with the law — arrested for meth and burglary — but he’s since cleaned up his act in a pretty spectacular way.
As we reported in July, Shaun graduated from a drug program and chose to celebrate his graduation at – you guessed it – Brent’s Deli. This place seems to hold a lot of meaning for him.
Today, we are told Weiss has been making money doing signings and small appearances. He’s also been working on standup and has been writing nonstop. Hopefully, we will see Shaun on the big screen once again!
