Shaun Weiss is finally getting his ducks in a row to apologize to Judd Apatow.

The “Mighty Ducks” child star, who became a homeless drug addict in his 30s, implied that he’s ready to make amends to the writer-director who gave him his big break – after he sold Apatow’s laptop for a mere $60 to score drugs.

Weiss, now 44, starred as a kid in Apatow’s 1995 film “Heavyweights,” as well as his cult TV show “Freaks and Geeks.”

He explained on the “Dopey” podcast how it was Apatow who helped get him into rehab years later, and revived his career after he‘d developed an addiction problem as an adult.

“I went to rehab … Judd Apatow put me in a rehab place,” Weiss, who has been sober for nearly three years, told “Dopey” host David Manheim this month.

“He was giving me a chance … that was the other thing that was really heartbreaking, too. He was really being my mentor and teaching me how to write and giving me different jobs and assignments that really cultivated me as a writer,” he continued.
