Diminutive in stature at 4’11”, Southern in drawl, and of big bawdy storytelling mouth, Leslie Jordan is probably best known for his sassy Emmy-winning turn in Will & Grace and as Emma Stone’s swishy newspaper editor in Oscar-winner The Help. More recently, he appeared on the third season of Ryan Murphy’s hit series American Horror Story, and the feature film adaptation of Del Shores’ Southern Baptist Sissies.

Born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Jordan hightailed to New York and Hollywood to make a name for himself. He landed roles in dozens of TV shows, including Murphy Brown, Bodies of Evidence, Caroline in the City, Ally McBeal, and Will & Grace, scoring a Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy Award for the latter, in which he played Karen’s sassy nemesis, Beverley Leslie.
