Leslie grew up in Chattanooga; his father passed away in a plane crash when he was 11 years old. His mother was very supportive though did not fully understand his passions. He moved to Los Angeles in 1982 and became involved with alcohol as well as drugs, but he then got into volunteer work while he was rehabilitating from his addictions.

Leslie started becoming popular and increasing his net worth significantly with various appearances on television. He made guest appearances in “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”, “Star Trek: Voyager”, and “Boston Public”. He also appeared in ‘Ugly Betty” as the celebrity thrasher Quincy Combs, and was the star of the short lived “Hidden Palms”. One of his best known roles was in the series “Will & Grace”, in which he played the sexually ambiguous Beverley Leslie, a role for which he won an Emmy Award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. This opened up more opportunities for him, and he became part of the interactive gay-themed show “Laugh Out” during its pilot. He also became a housemate during the celebrity edition of “Big Brother”, and made a guest appearance in two episodes of “Benidorm”, the British sitcom series.

Jordan got a lot of popularity and increased his net worth through his stage work too. He became a part of the production “Sordid Lives” as Earl “Brother Boy” Ingram – a role which he also took to film – and then quite naturally appeared in “Sordid Lives: The Series”, in which he played a character in a mental hospital. He wrote and starred in the play “Lost in the Pershing Point Hotel”, which was made into a film too, and then toured in a one-man stage comedy entitled “Like a Dog on Linoleum”, which received many good reviews. Other popular one-man shows he has done include “Hysterical Blindness and Other Southern Tragedies That Have Plagued my Life Thus Far” and “My Trip Down the Pink Market”. These shows were very successful, as he toured around the country with them.

Most recently, Leslie has appeared in the series “American Horror Story – Roanoke”, and “K.C. Undercover”, both in 2016. To date Jordan has been a part of well over 120 films and TV productions, spanning more than three decades.
