American actor, writer, and singer Leslie Allen Jordan has died age 67.
He was best known for his roles as Lonnie Garr in Hearts Afire (1993–1995), Beverly Leslie in Will & Grace (2001–2006, 2017–2020), several characters in the American Horror Story franchise (2011–present), Sid in The Cool Kids (2018–2019) and Phil in Call Me Kat (2021–present). One of Jordan’s first film roles was in the 1993 feature film Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday as Shelby.
One of his best-known onstage performances was in Sordid Lives, where he played Earl “Brother Boy” Ingram, a role he took to the big screen in the popular cult film of the same name.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Jordan was driving in Hollywood Monday morning when it’s suspected he suffered some sort of medical emergency and crashed his BMW into the side of a building.
Jordan became a social media sensation during the COVID-19 pandemic, with his silly video posts helping him skyrocket from about 80,000 Instagram followers to a whopping 5.8 million
In 2021, Jordan received GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics’ Timeless Star award, the group’s career achievement honor given to “an actor or performer whose exemplary career is marked by character, wisdom and wit.”
