I wouldn't take it as an insult. But Dustin Hoffman? I don't see it at all. If I had to pick a celebrity that Otis reminds me of, it would be probably Fred Flintstone...that's not an insult either...he kept Wilma satisfied...
Na, not Flintstone, and not to put him down either, but Otis has a more soft spoken, and more, as I originally said, Dustin Hoffman way to him. Taking that as an insult is a little strange, as Hoffman is a legend, more so than Flintstone ever was. Fred, for one, only had one role,,,, Dustin seems multi-layered, from 'The Graduate' to 'Marathon Man' to 'Rainman' to just about any role he ever had. Flintstone never had that kind of persona,,, again not to put him down, just that he doesn't do justice in comparison to Otis.
Now ponders the question of Fred Flintstone??? "Did he keep Wilma satisfied?" Hummm, I believe that would actually be Dino, as Fred got tossed out on the porch, in the opening of every show??? Again, not to insult Fred Flintstone, but I got to stick with the Hoffman comparison,,, cause it is a compliment, and I mean it in highest regards.
