Leslie Jordan

The Emmy-Award winning American actor has carved quite an impressive career for himself on Television standing out as one of the genre's leading faces. Audiences may remember him from his guest-starring roles in such shows as "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman", "Star Trek: Voyager", "Reba", "Boston Public", "Boston Legal", and "Ugly Betty", and for his secondary role on "Hearts Afire".
His best role is arguably that of Karen's pretentious rival Beverley Leslie on the hit series "Will & Grace". For that, he received an Emmy Award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2006. In addition to acting, he is an accomplished stage actor and playwright. One of his more famous roles on-stage is that of Brother Boy in "Sordid Lives", a role he took to the big screen in the popular cult film of the same name. He has stated that he will be reprising this role in the upcoming 2008 Del Shores' TV series "Sordid Lives: The Series" (LOGO/MTV) based on the film "Sordid Lives" with Emmy nominated actress Delta Burke. More recently, he toured the country performing his one-man stage comedy, "Like a Dog on Linoleum", to rave reviews. In this show, he tells stories of the high and low points of his life, from his father's death in a plane crash when he was just 11 years old, to his battles with substance abuse and his weakness for street hustlers. Also, Jordan, who is openly gay, has recently starred in the pilot episode of "Laugh Out", the world's first interactive, gay-themed comedy show.
