TV Vet Leslie Jordan, of Will & Grace and Call Me Kat, Dead at 67

....Emmy Award-winning TV vet Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace, Call Me Kat) died on Monday in a car accident. He was 67.

As reported by TMZ, Jordan is suspected to have suffered some sort of medical emergency while driving, then crashed his car into the side of a building.

Jordan’s TV credits date back to the mid-1980s, with roles on series such as The Fall Guy, Night Court, Murphy Brown and Newhart. His first regular role came with the CBS sitcom The People Next Door (as mailman Truman Fipps), followed by runs in the Married… With Children spinoff Top of the Heap, the cop dramas Reasonable Doubts and Bodies of Evidence, and the CBS sitcom Hearts Afire.

Jordan recurred on Boston Public and then Boston Legal in the 2000s, during which time he arguably “broke out” as Will & Grace‘s Beverly Leslie, arch nemesis of Megan Mullally’s Karen Walker. For that role, he earned his first Emmy Award in 2006.

“My heart is broken,” Will & Grace vet Sean Hayes shared on Facebook. “Leslie Jordan was one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure of working with. Everyone who ever met him, loved him. There will never be anyone like him. A unique talent with an enormous, caring heart. Leslie, you will be missed, my dear.”

Jordan’s many TV credits went on to include roles in American Horror Story (appearing in Seasons 3, 6 and 9), Fox’s The Cool Kids and then the network’s Call Me Kat, where as an original cast member he played cafe baker Phil. The upcoming Nov. 10 episode was to introduce his character’s first love interest, Jalen (guest star John Griffin).

“The world is definitely a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan,” the actor’s spokesperson said in a statement. “Not only was he a mega talent and joy to work with, but he provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation at one of it”s most difficult times. What he lacked in height he made up for in generosity and greatness as a son, brother, artist, comedian, partner and human being. Knowing that he has left the world at the height of both his professional and personal life is the only solace one can have today.”[/b]

My wife ran into him shopping in Fort Worth in 2012. He was friendly and up for a photo.

Rest in Peace Leslie

I've been trying to figure out what I've seen him on, looked on iMDB but nothing rings a bell.

RIP Leslie.

Leslie Jordan was a great character actor who was in a ton of TV shows, mainly one off and recurring appearances.

He was a little guy with a slightly high pitched, sort of sing-song voice with a slight southern-ish accent.

An acting affectation, I'm sure.

I haven't seen him in anything in a long time, though I recognized him from the pic, remembering him from his much earlier years.

If memory serves, he often appeared wearing a bow tie.

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
