The Original Uncle Otto Passed Away
Uncle Otto seemed to be more sophisticated than the rest of the family, which is why casting over-the-top transvestite actor Divine to play his role seemed to be an odd fit. Although Uncle Otto did have a secret love of fashion (which he shared with Kelly) and seemed to be more comfortable singing along with girls than the fellas. Tragically, Divine passed away right before he was supposed to start filming. James Haake then took the role.
