Canada.com (canada.com) is reporting that John Vernon, aka Dean Wormer passed away Tuesday in LA. Looking through the story, I was amazed at how many roles he had played that I didn't realize were him.

Someone should revoke my citizenship...

I had no idea he was Canadian.

Apparently I am related to John Vernon in some capacity... Grandpa's cousin or something.

Maybe my parents told me that so they could justify my watching "Ernest Goes to Camp" over and over.

I didn't even know he played Rupert Thorne in Batman: The Animated Series. If we were related, I'm proud as can be over that little fact.

My favorite of Vernon was Fletcher in Outlaw Josey Wales. He thought he was getting amnesty for his raiders (kind of of a play on Quantrill's raiders), but the union guys just killed them and only Josey was left. After he killed 'em all (and let God sort 'em out), he sees fletcher and neither acknowledges the other. Vernon doesn't have a huge role in this film, but it's fair-sized and I think it's one of the top 10 or so westerns and he plays the role really well. That and Dean Wormer will always be Vernon for me.

Too bad.

Thanks for a great season, Pick of the Week fans...see you next year at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI!

As of this moment, is his soul on double-secret probation? :-)

Another great character actor gone...*sigh*
