Jordan’s earliest success in entertainment was as Earl “Brother Boy” Ingram in the stage play Sordid Lives, which was adapted into a 2000 cult comedy. But it was in 2006 that he won the Emmy Award for guest actor in a comedy series on Will & Grace, for playing socialite Karen Walker’s sexually ambiguous, socialite frenemy Beverly Leslie.

Jordan’s other television shows credits include Ally McBeal, Ugly Betty, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, Reba, Nash Bridges and three different characters on three seasons of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story – the Coven, Roanoke and 1984 installments.
