|~ Dean Vernon Wormer after the Deltas crash the homecoming parade.|
Dean Vernon Wormer is the tertiary antagonist of the 1978 film National Lampoon's Animal House.
He is portrayed by John Vernon.
Wormer is the dean of Faber College and despises the rowdy and out of control Delta fraternity. He enlists the snobby Omegas to help him find a way to expel the Deltas. After the Deltas throw a perverse toga party (during which one of them has sex with Wormer's wife), Wormer revokes the Deltas' charter and places them on "double-secret probation". Once he sees how poor the Deltas' midterm grades are, he finally has an excuse to expel them.
In retaliation, the Deltas crash the annual homecoming parade, terrorizing Wormer and the Omegas. In "Where Are They Now?", it is revealed that Wormer loses his job as dean and is placed in a nursing home.
