He was in "Curtains", "Killer Clowns From Outer Space", and was the mayor in "Dirty Harry".

"Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Holy shit."
"I'm supposed to read you your rights, but you're in Mooney's jail and you ain't got no rights."
"Alright Dave, that's it! Screw you and your college flunkies! I've had enough of this from you and everyone else. I know what you're trying to do; break me down, run me out of the force. Well, it's going to take a lot more than that to get Curtis Mooney to throw in his badge, so fuck you! Over."
RIP Officer Mooney
John Vernon also played Sherman Krader in 1987's Ernest Goes To Camp. He was the owner/boss of Krader Mining Co. that fired shots at Ernest P. Worrell at the end of the film.

Damn, as a massive Dirty Harry and Outlaw Josey Wales fan, this sucks big time. I'll leave with Vernon's line from OJW which is one of the greatest lines of all time.
" There's also another saying senator, don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining " John Vernon - Outlaw Josey Wales 1976.

Homer : Yeah, but your mom payed for that.
Bart : But doesn't she get her money from you.
Homer : And I get my money from grease, what's the problem.
