This Was
Leslie Jordan's
Best Role
Leslie Jordan was best known for his role as Beverly Leslie on “Will & Grace,” but he also gave memorable performances in shows and movies like “Call Me Kat,” “The Help,” and “American Horror Story.” Thanks to a poll on Reddit, we now know which of Jordan's characters on “American Horror Story” is the favorite of the fans.
Over the course of "American Horror Story," Jordan played three roles — and the definitive favorite (with 137 of 228 votes) was Ashley Gilbert as Cricket Marlowe on “Roanoke.” Gilbert is an actor who portrays the medium Marlowe in the documentary "My Roanoke Nightmare," who later becomes involved with a ghost hunting series that illegally returns to the Roanoke house.
Jordan was extremely memorable in the dual role of Marlowe the medium and Gilbert, the actor playing him — and both went out in an unforgettable way. Thanks to Jordan's performance in "Roanoke," Gilbert as Marlowe was easily one of the funniest and quirkiest parts of the season.
