·  Does Oteil have an acting career?

Not sure if you'd call it a "career", but he did appear in the 1979 Peter Sellers movie "Being There" as a character named Lolo.

Amazon.com designates "Being There" an essential video: "Thanks to an extraordinary, delicately balanced performance by Peter Sellers, Being There received mixed reviews during its theatrical release in 1979, but has since become a celebrated comedy with a loyal following. It's one of the most unusual black comedies ever made, simply because it stretches a simple premise over 130 minutes of straight-faced,
strangely compelling commentary on politics, media, and celebrity in media-savvy America ..."

Also,I would like to know if the album,EAT A PEACH,had anything to do with with Duanes death? A friend of mine met Duane twice thru one of Duanes girlfriends and was told that Duane died under a peach tree and made a remark regarding the tree to Berry Oakley at the scene of the accident.This is a very important question to me and my friend that knew Duane for a very short period.

On October 29, 1971, Duane was leaving a birthday party for Linda Oakley at the Big House in Macon, GA. He swerved to avoid a flatbed truck that had pulled out in front of him from the oncoming lane and his bike went down on him as he tried to avoid the truck. The accident site is near the corner of Hillcrest and Bartlett. He died 2 hours later on the operating table. The rest the information in your question is incorrect. The album name Eat a Peach came from a quote Duane gave during a radio interview. The DJ asked him if he did anything in terms of protest. Duane said, "There ain't no revolution, it's evolution, but every time I'm in Georgia I eat a peach for peace."
