‘Will & Grace’ Actor Leslie Jordan Dead At 67

Actor Leslie Jordan died tragically in a Monday morning car crash, according to TMZ.

Law enforcement sources told the publication that the 67-year-old “American Horror Story” star was driving in Hollywood Monday morning when he crashed his BMW into the side of a building. There is speculation that the crash was the result of a medical emergency.

Besides “AHS,” Jordan was known for his work on mainstream TV shows including “Will & Grace,” “Hearts Afire,” “The Cool Kids,” and “Call me Kat.” Jordan, who measured just 4 feet 11 inches tall, became famous in the 1990s beginning with roles in sitcoms such as “Ski Patrol” and “Murphy Brown.”

He won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2006 for playing Karen’s rival Beverly Leslie on “Will & Grace.” 

Jordan discovered a large following on Instagram during the pandemic thanks to the funny videos he was posting at the time. The actor entertained his millions of followers by telling funny stories about Hollywood with his trademark southern accent.

In addition to acting, Jordan was a musician and was born and raised in Tennessee. He released the gospel music album, Company’s Comin’ in 2021 and was featured as a guest panelist on season 6 of “The Masked Singer” where he performed “This Little Light of Mine” as “Soft Serve.”

The last video he posted to Instagram was yesterday. Jordan shared “Sunday Mornin’ Hymn Singin’” writing in the caption, “Danny [Myrick] helped me with a new original song that should be comin’ out real soon. Love. Light. Leslie.”
