Peak height was 6ft 1in (185 cm)
American actor best known for playing Dr. Emmett Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy and as Uncle Fester in The Addams Family. On tv he is well known for his role as Reverend Jim Ignatowski on comedy series Taxi. He Said in 2009 LA Times regarding his stature, "I'm 6 feet 1", which in the 1970's he could look.

Wilson claimed 6ft2 but is listed 6ft2. He could near 6ft3 beside Lloyd

He was a solid 6'1 at his peak .I've watched bttf 3 he and 6'2 Thomas f Wilson are about the sane height

As I believe someone pointed out in this thread, Lloyd, as "Jim" on TV's "Taxi" once stated- on that famous episode that took place at the DMV ("Slow Down" LMAO)- his height at 5'10". Now granted, this was probably similar to Woody Harrelson as Woody Boyd on TV's "Cheers" stating his height at 6 foot, and similar to Ray Romano on TV's "Everybody Loves Raymond" stating his height at 6' as well- just served the purpose of the written episode of that series. Now let's all assume Lloyd is over 5'10", I just don't see him (even at peak height) at a solid 6'1" with no shoes on- maybe 6'-6'0 1/2"-?? There was a movie I saw him in with 5'11" John Ritter, and he looked about an inch taller, however if memory serves correct, he may have had cowboy boots on-?? And FTR- here are my estimates for the cast of "Taxi":

Judd Hirsch- 5'11" (sloucher, so may have appeared 5'10" in spite of his 6' official height)
Tony Danza- 5'9" (looked closer to his official height listing [at one time] of 5'10" on TV's "Who's The Boss" since mostly surrounded by women & children)
Jeff Conaway- 6'0" (character Bobby Wheeler usually had boots on and big hair which may have made him appear 6'1" or 6'2")
Andy Kaufman- 6'0"
Randall Carver- 5'8"
Danny DeVito- 4'10"

Looks about 6 foot.

He looks about 4" than Rob and Jenny. I think he's 6' now and possibly 6'1" in his prime.
Judd says on 15/Dec/14
in the addams family series he looked something like 2-3" shorter than Raul Julia...for sure he's character (fester) required a terrible posture, because he's hunchback, but i think Lloyd was however shorter than Julia by more than a flat inche...
If Julia was 6'1.75-2", then Lloyd was 6'0.5" (for sure) or maybe 6'0.75" when was young, but not a flat 6'1". Today he could be in the 5'11.5" range.
Oanh says on 26/Nov/14
5'11" today...6'0 peak.
The Exorcist says on 19/Nov/14
@Vegas: That guy looks more 6'6" range than 6'5".
Clint says on 19/Nov/14
184cm now
the shredder says on 18/Nov/14
Rob , did he or Michael Biehn look taller in person?
[Editor Rob: I felt was similar to cumberbatch beside the photographer, very close, but a slight edge, Biehn was very close to photographer too, but had a bit more hair sticking up. That was over 6 years ago with Lloyd though, so another bit lost by now is very likely. ]
Arch Stanton says on 17/Nov/14
@Rampage. I stood about 10 ft away from him in California in the summer of 1997 and he looked solid tall range back then. 6'1" peak is fair.
Vegas says on 17/Nov/14
this guy who frequents another forum i do claims 6'5

Given his footwear, I reckon Mr Lloyd is 182 cm at best.
Judd says on 6/Oct/14
For the most of his career he looks taller than a 6' one. In the family Addams's series he looks much taller than Raul Julia (6'1.5") because he isn't straight with his back...he has bad posture because his carachter (fester) is hunchback...
I think he was no less than 6'0.5" (with a good chance of 6'0.75") during 70-80-90's and today he's like 5'11.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Oct/14
I'd argue 6ft0(184cm) lowest at peak...
miko says on 21/Sep/14
He hasn't aged much in about 15/20 years!

He's likely slipped below the 6'0 mark now though. Weak 6'1 peak.
danny185 says on 23/Jun/14
that's not a proper 6'0, really 182, tallish guy
PPS says on 2/Jun/14
In the second series of Taxi as Reverend Jim, he refers to himself as 5 ft 10. It seems unlikely that an actor of 6 ft 1 would do that, or that the others should all agree with him...
Greg says on 20/May/14
is 6'0 exactly
mike says on 20/May/14
Rob, why don't you downgrade him to 181 or 182?
[Editor Rob: yeah he could be 5ft 11.5 nowadays]
mike says on 18/May/14
181-182today 184-185 peak IMO.
Alex 6'0 says on 9/May/14
His peak was 6'1 or very close. Today looks 5'11.5 with Rob
[Editor Rob: yeah today he could be that, actually my pic was 6 years ago, I think now at 75 he could have dropped another fraction.]
Powerhouse says on 6/Feb/14
He's definitely slightly under 6'0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 0.5in (184.15cm)"

Santa Barbara or Santa Monica pier, can't remember which one it was, it might have been Barbara, one of them. Don't remember much about the place except the filming and that their pizza sucked!
Arch Stanton says on 26/Jul/13
Full 6'1" peak in my opinion. Watch him barefoot next to Vincent in Cuckoo's Nest. 3 inches shorter roughly. On my mother's life I saw him on Santa Monica pier shooting My Favourite Martian in June 1997 and he looked noticeably tall I thought at the time. See him also in cowboy boots and a hat in Back to the Future III , gives the impression of 6'3"-6'4" in that film with the boots and hat.
Ray says on 15/Mar/13
178-180cm no more
Nils says on 10/Feb/13
6ft peak i think
Mark says on 13/Jan/13
Apparently whilst filming BTTF he had to crouch in certain scenes with MJF, looks slightly under 6ft, but no shorter than 5'11, considering he's in his 70s now thats a good height.
Stephen says on 8/Jan/13
182 cm now
ice says on 6/Jan/13
ROB he definately does not have 10 cm on you !!
Connor 184cm says on 2/Jan/13
I dont know rob i think christopher is 6ft rather than 5ft 11.75 he looks 4 inches taller than you in the top left hand picture.
Trent says on 28/Dec/12
To be fair they both had cowboy boots. In this pic here Click Here
I could see him maybe 1.5 - 2 inches under.

Thomas F Wilson has claimed 6'2 and 6'3, and is listed 6'2.5 on this site, so let's give him that. So from looking at him with the Doc I would say Lloyd would have been 6'1 or maybe a bit under.
Arch Stanton says on 26/Dec/12
In the fight scene interestingly the Doc looks a good inch taller than 6'3" Mad Dog, although his posture isn't great. but as I say in some scenes the Doc could look very tall and near 6'4". 6'1" add cowboy boots and the hat and long western coat and his build and long face I think which made him look as tall as that in the third film.
Arch Stanton says on 25/Dec/12
Strangely looks 6'3"-6'4" at times in Back to the Future III. Must be the effect of the cowboy boots, hat and long coat.
Aragorn 5\'11 says on 23/Dec/12
5'10.5. 2.5 inches taller than Rob
mike 181cm says on 22/Dec/12
6"1 prime now 5"11.5 hes getting old
Trent says on 2/Dec/12
I'd guess around 5'11.5 considering the 1/4" sneaker advantage. He has quite a high head so you could be thrown off at first. I haven't really looked at pics of him at his peak though.
marla singer says on 28/Nov/12
Looks 5'11-5'11.5 in the picture here...
thc-182 says on 13/Nov/12
looks a strong 5'11 now , 6' is really exagerated
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 30/Sep/12
Rob, his peak I def think he was 6'1 but today he looks maybe 6'0 max. In the picture with you he looks more 5'11 1/2

Justin says on 29/Jul/12
There is absolutely no way he was 9 inches taller than Michael J. Fox in the Back to the Future series. They looked basically the same height.

I hope you're joking, he still clearly owns MJ even today.

Mmm with MJ stood on the DeLorean maybe. I saw him in June 1997 on the pier 10 ft away from where I was standing and he was surely at least 6' back then.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 19/Aug/12
Rob, did he teach you how to go back to the future? :)

184 peak, 181-182 now
[Editor Rob: I wish I could :)]
Witchdoctor says on 8/Aug/12
wow when watching adams family values I thought he was short because of how he would get dwarfed by that giant actor who played their gardener!
Mathew says on 6/Aug/12
Maybe it's: 182 cm today, 184 - 185 cm peak.
