Leslie Jordan driving to set of ‘Call Me Kat’ when he died

Leslie Jordan was reportedly driving to the set of his network sitcom, “Call Me Kat,” when he crashed his car and died Monday in Hollywood.

TMZ reported Wednesday that Jordan’s colleagues started to worry when the actor-comedian didn’t show up to work more than an hour after his call time. People working on the production reportedly tried to locate Jordan before learning that he had been involved in a car accident.

Fox’s “Call Me Kat” stars Jordan, Mayim Bialik, Swoosie Kurtz, Kyla Pratt, Julian Gant, Cheyenne Jackson and Christopher Rivas. Jordan played Phil, the head baker at the titular character’s cat café.

Representatives for Jordan and Fox did not immediately respond Wednesday to requests for comment.

In a joint statement provided Monday to The Times, the cast and producers of “Call Me Kat” remembered Jordan as “tender, wise, naughty and hilarious.”

“We got to know and love him at the height of his happiness and joy and it is inconceivable to imagine a world without our Leslie: the man who would spit on his contact lenses before putting them in his eyes, the man who had a story about every man in Hollywood and some of the women as well, the man who lived to make people laugh,” they said, adding that production on the show would be paused to “grieve and to celebrate the many gifts Leslie gave to us and to the entire world.”

The beloved entertainer was declared dead this week after crashing his BMW into a building at Cahuenga Boulevard and Romaine Street. It was not immediately clear whether Jordan was killed in the collision or suffered a medical emergency while operating the vehicle. He was 67.

Authorities have been working to determine the cause of death, but those at the scene suspected Jordan suffered a cardiac episode prior to the crash, according to law enforcement. The Los Angeles County Coroner was scheduled to conduct an autopsy Tuesday.

In addition to “Call Me Kat,” Jordan was known for his work on “Will & Grace,” “American Horror Story” and many other movies and TV series.
