Beloved Actor Leslie Jordan Dead At 67 After Car Crash

Beloved actor and comedian Leslie Jordan has died after a car accident in Los Angeles on Monday at the age of 67.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ and then the Los Angeles Times that they suspected the beloved actor suffered a medical emergency before crashing his BMW into the side of a building in Hollywood.

Known for roles in American Horror Story, Hearts Afire, and his Emmy-winning turn on Will & Grace, Jordan found renewed fame at 65 as an accidental internet sensation during the pandemic.

Posting gossipy, relatable daily videos to Instagram, the diminutive star – he stood 4’11” in shoes – reached a new audience after decades as a jobbing actor.

“The world is definitely a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan,” said David Shaul, Jordan’s agent. “Not only was he a mega talent and joy to work with, but he provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation at one of its most difficult times.”

The veteran actor’s credits also include The Help, The Cool Kids and Call Me Kat, a remake of the British hit Miranda, which is airing its third season on Fox. He received critical acclaim for his turn as Earl “Brother Boy” Ingram in the stage play Sordid Lives, which was later adapted into a 2000 cult romantic comedy film of the same name.

Born in Tennessee in 1955, Jordan was raised Southern Baptist in the middle-class suburbs of Chattanooga. His father, a lieutenant colonel in the US army, died in a plane crash when he was 11.
