MIGHTY DUCKS Star Shaun Weiss Gets Baptized On Set: ‘It Was Really Wonderful’

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE MIGHTY DUCKS star Shaun Weiss will make his first on-screen appearance in years in Greg Laurie’s upcoming faith-based movie, JESUS REVOLUTION. 

Weiss is candid about his past battles with drug addiction and agreed to play the role of a drug-addicted Vietnam vet who seeks to be saved. In the movie, the character eventually gets baptized.

While filming a baptism scene for the movie, Weiss said that Laurie approached him “and decided to start a relationship with me.”

“I ended up getting baptized … in front of the whole movie production. It was a very nice process, it was really wonderful,” he shared. “It really wasn’t anything I had been planning on or had thought about, but it made sense the whole time.”

This is an impressive comeback for Weiss, who served jail time in 2017 for petty theft and 2018 for public intoxication. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Weiss and his commitment to sobriety:

Former child star Shaun Weiss posted a shocking throwback picture to celebrate two years of sobriety after battling methamphetamine addiction.

Weiss, best known for his role in THE MIGHTY DUCKS, is unrecognizable in the first photo, which shows how his addiction negatively affected his body and life. Weiss revealed that he lost weight, had missing teeth, and was arrested multiple times.

However, the second photo showed Weiss’ healthy transformation.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with 12 amazing steps,” he captioned the photo.
