Comment on the Height of Denis Leary

Rob, what was Leary originally listed at here?

I remember seeing 6ft2.
[Editor Rob: yes at one stage.]

Btw, he is 57 years old, so he has surely lost a fraction.

Does anyone have a guess on Daniel Sunjata? He is at least 2cm taller than him, and Daniel's over 6ft himself...

going on this picture, leary = 6'1", costner = 6.025 welling = 6'3"

hard to belive he is taller than costner even though costner is closer to the camera.

In the film? I wouldn't trust pictures. He is taller than Rhys Ifans, who is listed 187cm. He's got 3 inches on Garfield, who can is legit 179cm. And he's well into his 50's. Robb says some people have lost in there 40's, yet Leary is just 186, when h still looks that today?

H also looks taller than 6ft1 Costner. I need a good look with Welling, but he has excellent posture, and makes everyone look less than liste anyway!

Lorne, I'm not sure he looks over 6'1 next to Tom Welling, let alone 187...
Lorne??? said on 12/Mar/15
187 is closer. He is clearly taller than every 6'1 guy I've ever seen him with.

Once again, pictures are deceptive.

And Shredd, his character on Rescue Me (Tommy Gavin) has been described 6ft3 multiple times. Leary co-wrote(and co created the show) I count that as a claim. I'm sure I've heard him claim it as well, but can't recall an exact quote.

Flat 6'1 and nothing over that.

When did he claim 6'3? Well , it does explain that crazy 6 '3 listings for him .
Danimal said on 17/Nov/14
Hard to believe he used to claim 6'3". Maybe he was 6'2" earlier in his career.

186-187 peak
185 today

I'd imagine he edges Costner by a hair. However, he did not look any taller than Brosnan in The Thomas Crown Affair.

I watched the new Costner movie last night. leary actually looked an inch taller, to me. They had several close up scenes. I think Costner is maybe 6' even... and Leary is about 6'1". Just going by their claimed heights and the fact Leary looks taller in the new movie.
Sam said on 8/Apr/14
I imagine he looks similar range to Kevin Costner in their new movie together.
Len said on 17/Oct/13
6'1". And his stand-up act is overrated, IMO.
avi said on 23/Jun/13
strong 6'1

You finally downgraded him! He's not a full 6'2, despite his claim of 6ft3. However, I hate to nitpick, but I don't think he dropped below 6ft1.75in at his peak. Remember that the guy is on his 50's now , so a cm of height loss is to be expected. So a solid 187cm or 6ft1.75 for Leary. Also, he was taller than legit 6ft1 guys like dean winters(AKA:Mayhem!) point is a solid 187 could pull of the 188-189cm look in boots. Anyway, I'm glad you finally downgraded him too 187cm range, be it 6ft1.5 or 6ft1.75!

Looked 3" taller then 5f10.5 Garfield. So, 6f1.5 seems right.

Rob, he looks shorter than 6ft2 Rhys Ifans. In one photo, there seems to be more than 1 inch between them.

looks an easy 6'2 with glenn
Anonymous said on 23/Sep/07
Yeah I agree he doesn't look that tall outside of Rescue Me. I remember he was in Demolition Man, saw the film recently and he was legitimately shorter than Benjamin Bratt.
Anonymous said on 17/Jul/07
I seriously thought this guy was like 5'10 till I watched "Rescue Me" and then I thought 6'3. I do believe 6'2 though and think his skinny build makes him look taller.
Fox said on 18/Jun/07
looks anywhere from 6'1-6'3 he's very lanky
Del Mar said on 17/Jun/07
Thanks Glenn. I agree on 6-2, first I thought 6-3 but I see the angle tricked me.
glenn said on 17/Jun/07
heard he was always a dick.always just missed him.he was mega cool here.and talking to someone.i was annoyed cause that can cause him to not look in the and heard 6-3.looked 6-2.
Matt Thomas said on 16/Jun/07
Yeah Glenn you like taller than you usually loko with a 6'2 guy
Da Man said on 16/Jun/07
I don't buy a 6-2 Leary for a second. 6-1 max.
Anthony said on 15/Jun/07
I defnitely think Leary is a legit 6'2. Damn funny, too. Glenn, you look a bit scared in this pic LOL.
Del Mar said on 15/Jun/07
He seems huge in the picture! Could be angle though. What was your estimation Glenn? Was he nice?
Danimal said on 15/Jun/07
Between 6'1" and 6'2".
Anonymous said on 15/Jun/07
He is 6'0 /6'0.5 barefoot 6'2 in boots
TheJerk said on 15/Jun/07
His son is 6-6 as he just mentioned on the radio the other day. I think he could actually be 6-2. Havent seen him in too much to do much judging though.
Big Dave said on 7/Mar/07
I thought he was actually shorter than Brosnan in the Thomas Crown Affair. I think this guy could do with down-grading a bit further.
Ben said on 10/Feb/07
If this guy is 6-3/4 Brosnan is nothing below this. In Crown affair he doesn't look any more than 6-1.
Lmeister said on 2/Jan/07
He does prefer thich heeled workboots, but still is around 6'2'' mark. A great actor...
Rastus said on 19/Dec/06
Are we sure about this guy? He never struck me as being particularly tall and I've just seen the remake of Thomas Crown Affair. Frankie Faison is taller than him in every seen and I think his official height is 6'2". There are also seens where he's not much bigger than Renee Russo (5'8") in her heels. I'd have him at 6'1" max. 6'2"/6'3" is getting up to the Josh Hartnett sort of height where he'd be the tallest guy in every scene. I agree with Biffy's comment on footwear - Leary's a big fan of cowboy boots.
