Emmy-Winning Actor From 'Will & Grace' Joins 'American Horror Story' THR

An actor who appeared on the hit NBC comedy series "Will & Grace" is joining FX's "American Horror Story." The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that Leslie Jordan, who played Beverley Leslie on the NBC sitcom, has been cast in the horror anthology series.

Details on Jordan's role are being kept quiet, as is the norm with the series, the story says. Jordan won an Emmy for best guest actor for "Will & Grace" in 2006. His long list of TV credits also includes "Desperate Housewives," "Boston Public" and "Boston Legal."

The third season of the FX drama, subtitled "Coven," picks up the story of witches and witchcraft in America, set 300 years after the Salem witch trials. The season also features Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett.
