RIP: Dean Wormer
Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.



LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- John Vernon, a stage-trained character actor who played cunning villains in film and TV and made his comedy mark as Dean Wormer in "National Lampoon's Animal House," has died. He was 72.

15. "Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer... "
Dead. Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right.

8. "Cut the horseshit, son. "
"I've got their disciplinary files right here. Who dropped a whole truckload of fizzies into the swim meet? Who delivered the medical school cadavers to the alumni dinner? Every Halloween, the trees are filled with underwear. Every spring, the toilets explode."

"Put a sock in it, boy, or else you'll be outta here like shit through a goose."

"Put Neidermeyer on it. He's a sneaky little shit just like you."

Dean Wormer was a great character. Sadly, I never saw him in anything else.
