This strong-featured regular of Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival appeared in over 100 Broadway and off-Broadway plays. Jordan began making screen appearances in lead roles, such as Woody Allen's "Interiors" (1978) and as one of the "Iron Johns" in "The Men's Club" (1986). He appeared in the weirdly Mid-Pacific "The Yakuza" (1975) and in supporting roles in features that ranged from big budget comedies like "The Secret of My Success" (1987) to the rococo "Dune" (1985), where he played an oddly normal character. Jordan was in several TV-movies and miniseries in the 1970s and gave a gripping performance as Albert Speer in the TV-movie movie "The Bunker" (1981). He played his last TV role in the movie "Are You Lonesome Tonight" (1992). Very shortly before he died, Jordan completed work on the earnest feature epic, "Gettysburg" (1993), which showcased his sizable, stalwart talent as Brigadier General Armistead, who died doing battle with Union forces.
