I stand corrected here; always thought he was super tall (about 6'5"). Superb actor and fantastic person. In the Dead Zone he was beyond comparison.

Wow, i was expecting 5'11 (180cm)
richie said on 5/May/15
Mmmm..i always thought he appeared in the 6'1" range, certainly had a good 3 inches on DeNiro in Deerhunter and was almost the same height as Roger Moore in View to a Kill, certainly a strong 6'

Rob he could be 5'11 or 5'11.25 today?
[Editor Rob: he certainly can look sub 6ft]

I think until 2005 he was in the 6' wedding crash he wasn't much far from Bradley Cooper, but in 2002 he was very close to LDiCaprio (5'11.25")...Today i think he's max 5'11.5".

Batman Returns should also be listed here...
Judd said on 7/Nov/14
no doubt regarding he was 6'0" but today he actually looks a bit shorter than 5'11.5", like a strong 5'11".

He towered over DeNiro in The Deer Hunter and wasn't much shorter than Connery in The Anderson Tapes. A strong 6ft/weak 6ft1 range peak.

Was close to 6'1" at his peak. Has noticeably lost height.
kyuss said on 13/Oct/14

At peak, I don't see an inch, even half an inch, between Walken and Roger Moore.

A bit taller than Laurence Fishburne.

Also here with Kris Kristofferson and Jeff Bridges (dropping a bit in the foreground).

I could see more 6'0.5" at peak for Walken.

Strong six footer in his prime.Looked it in Bulloxi Blues.
Emil 182.5 cm said on 18/Aug/14
I'd say a 6'0.25-6'0.5 peak for Walken :)
Emil 182.5 cm said on 5/Aug/14
Dont you think 184-185 cm could be a POSSIBLE peak?
[Editor Rob: a little bit over 6ft is possible, but I would think he is an honest enough guy saying 6ft.]

he was at least 1.5 shorter than eastwood at the jersey boys premiere. probably no more than 5'11 today.

Nice one. His hairstyle can really make him look at least 6'1" at times. In the above photo it looks 6 inches from his eyes to the top of his hair!
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/14
Rob can you add a photo and add A View to a Kill, Pulp Fiction, The Funeral, King of New York. Catch Me If You Can, The Dead Zone, Wedding Crashers and Seven Psychopaths?

Looks roughly 2 inches shorter than Benicio Del Torro in The Funeral.
Roger said on 6/Jul/14
Walken towered over Batman Michael Keaton in Batman Returns. Keaton is known to be 5-9 peak. My guess he was 6-1 or maybe 6 feet even.
Guy said on 9/Jun/14
He looked very close to sandler in Click, i would say he is between 180 and 182
HULK said on 11/Feb/14
same height as Bradley Cooper
Height expert said on 20/Jan/14
I think I read some where that Chris walken suffers from some spinal disease or something that's why his posture is terrible. Do correct me though as I'm not certain.

One does not simply Walken to Morodor.
Martin said on 19/Dec/13
Click Here good clip to judge his peak height next to Sean Connery
Spencer said on 2/Dec/13
Peak: 6'0.75
Today: 5'11.5

"Peak height was 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"
Arch Stanton said on 21/Sep/13
Didn't look under 6 ft peak. Looks tall in the Deer Hunter, 3 inches easily on De Niro.
Willy said on 29/Apr/13
Looked an inch shorter than Roger Moore in A View To A Kill. Moore at that time certainly wasn't over 6'0.75'', so 5'11.75'' seems natural for Walken. 6' flat when waking up at peak, but never over it. Well, 6'1'' with the hair.
Lorne said on 22/Apr/13
@Jake: Ditto on 6ft0.25in
nord said on 26/Mar/13
6'1'' back in the day
Tempest said on 25/Jan/13
Here he is next to apparently 6'2"ish Neil Degrasse Tyson. Click Here
Conti said on 2/Dec/12
I think when he was younger he was 6'1,because he kind of looked taller in batman returns.Unless he was wearing boots or something that made him taller.Normally when a person gets older they lose 2 inches of growth.I would say now he's 5'11.
