Leslie Jordan is the author of My Trip Down the Pink Carpet (Simon & Schuster, $21.95 hb).
Jordan, the beloved Emmy-winning actor, playwright, and gay icon, offers this rollicking caper filled with comically overwrought childhood agonies, revealing celebrity encounters, and offbeat Hollywood observations.
You may remember him best as the little lech who would do anything to get into Jack’s knickers and as Ksren's nemisis on Will and Grace.
Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee and at a height of just 4 ft 11, Leslie Jordan has become an instantly recognizable face in film and television. He is most well known for his television work - including guest appearances on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Star Trek: Voyager, Reba, Boston Public, Boston Legal, and his secondary role on Hearts Afire. He has recently guest-starred on the popular comedy-drama Ugly Betty as celebrity-trasher Quincy Combs. In 2007, Jordan starred as Jesse Joe in the short-lived CW television program, Hidden Palms.
Jordan is perhaps best known for his role of Karen's pretentious rival Beverley Leslie on the hit series Will & Grace. For that role he received an Emmy Award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2006.
Jordan is an accomplished stage actor and playwright. In one of his best-known performances onstage, he played Brother Boy in Sordid Lives, a role he took to the big screen in the popular cult film of the same name. Jordan has stated that he will be reprising his role as "Brother Boy" in the upcoming 2008 Del Shores TV series "Sordid Lives: The Series" (LOGO/MTV). He wrote and starred in the autobiographical play Lost in the Pershing Point Hotel, which was also made into a motion picture with the former Atlanta landmark as the setting. He recently 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.
