Variety reported on October 24 that renowned actor, singer, dramatist, and LGBTQ icon Leslie Jordan died in a vehicle accident at the age of 67. Monday morning near Cahuenga Blvd. and Romaine St. in Hollywood, his vehicle collided with the side of a building, and he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to The Hollywood Reporter. According to Variety, he may have experienced “some type of medical problem” before to the collision.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jordan’s net worth is $2.5 million. Jordan had most recently appeared in all five episodes of the most current season of the Fox sitcom “Call Me Kat” as a baker in a recurring role. He was possibly best recognized for his portrayal as Beverley Leslie, Karen’s wealthy adversary, in the long-running comedy “Will & Grace.” In 2006, he won an Emmy for the performance.
Jordan won even more hearts and garnered a new fanbase on Instagram in 2020 when he began posting amusing, unusual videos. 5.8 million people followed him.
Jordan’s career is wide and spans five decades of television series and movies, from roles on classic shows such as “The Fall Guy,” “Night Court,” “Newhart,” “Ally McBeal,” and “Boston Legal” to a cameo in the campy made-for-television comedy “The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time” in 2018.
In addition to movies and television, he was very skilled on the stage. Early in the 1990s, he wrote, directed, and performed in the off-Broadway play “Hysterical Blindness,” for which he received critical praise.
