Through his career, Vernier has appeared in TV shows like The X-Files, NYPD Blue (with Ricky Schroder), Boomtown (with Mykelti Williamson, Lana Parrilla, and Gregg Henry), Army Wives, and The Glades (with Carlos Gomez). In 2013, he appeared in an episode of Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa's new show Homeland. The episode Vernier appeared in was written by Chip Johannessen, and featured Nazanin Boniadi.

Role on 24[]

Vernier played the role of Gus during Season 2 of 24. Gus was a federal agent present at Norton Airfield during the Second Wave nuclear threat. Vernier appeared in one episode and was credited as a co-star.

Originally, Vernier had auditioned for the role of a "bomb expert" (probably one of the two N.E.S.T. technicians also present at Norton Airfield). According to Vernier, director Jon Cassar was very pleased with his audition, but said "you just don't look like an egg head". "They threw me a bone with the part of Gus", Vernier added.
