    John Vernon, Dean Wormer In 'Animal House,' Dies



    POSTED: 8:50 am EST February 4, 2005

    LOS ANGELES -- Character actor John Vernon, who played the tormented Dean Wormer in "National Lampoon's Animal House," has died in Los Angeles.

    His daughter, Kate Vernon, said Thursday that her father died at home Jan. 16 of complications from recent heart surgery.

    "Animal House," starring John Belushi, is one of the most popular comedies ever made. Vernon's character, Dean Wormer, is obsessed with trying to expel the hard-partying college boys at the Delta fraternity house.

    Vernon studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and appeared on stage and television in his native Canada.

    After appearing on Broadway in "Royal Hunt of the Sun," Vernon began a steady film career, first appearing in 1967's "Point Blank."

    He also starred in two films featuring Clint Eastwood: 1971's "Dirty Harry," and in "The Outlaw Josey Wales" in 1976.

    Every Halloween the trees are filled with underwear.

    Every spring the toilets explode.
