The greatest cast ever assembled for TV has just gotten even more bewitching. Emmy Award-winning out actor Leslie Jordan has cast a spell on fans since he came to prominence as Karen’s frenemy Beverly Leslie on Will & Grace, but the pocket-sized scene-stealer will now face his tallest challenge yet when he’s forced to hold his own against the formidable female-heavy cast of the FX anthology series American Horror Story: Coven. Jordan is set for multiple appearances in the witchy third season of the Ryan Murphy-created hit, which will premiere October 9. While no details about his character have been revealed, Jordan will reportedly have scenes with headliner Jessica Lange.
The show’s official description reads:
American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.
