The body of famous actor Leslie Jordan was discovered Monday morning after his car slammed into a house in Hollywood, his agent said. The incident happened at the intersection of Cahuenga Boulevard and Romaine Street at approximately 9:30 a.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
His death was ruled an instant loss of life. The 67-year-old Jordan apparently had a medical issue, according to law enforcement officials who spoke to TMZ. Jordan’s BMW automobile appeared to have incurred minor damage and its airbags had deployed, as shown on CCTV from KTLA.
In addition to his role as Beverly Leslie on “Will & Grace,” Jordan is also well-known for his portrayal of Lonnie Garr in “Hearts Afire.” In addition to his success in “American Horror Story,” “The Cool Kids,” and “Call Me Kat,” he became famous online after posting a series of viral movies that made news during the coronavirus pandemic.
Former ‘Will & Grace’ co-star Sean Hayes tweeted, “My heart is devastated.” “Leslie Jordan was one of the most hilarious coworkers I’ve ever had.” All the people he encountered grew fond of him. Nobody else will ever measure up to him. A rare gift endowed with a generous and kind soul. We’ll miss you, buddy.
Leslie was “very proud of and looking forward to share with the world,” the caption explained, adding “in the following days we will be delivering a preview of that endeavor.” McCormack wrote, “RIP you sweet, hilarious man.” Everyone loved you. Jordan’s Instagram post simply asks followers to “comfort each other at this time” by sharing their own memories of the late star.
