If you look at those convention photos where he is standing next to the other Jason actors, he is clearly taller than all of them. There are some where they are not in a perfect line. But I would put money on him being a legit 6 foot 5. I wouldn't agree with anything less than 6 foot 4 though.
He was a beast as Jason. He put a whole new meaning to the physical aspect of it. Well done. I think he should take the role for any future F13 movie.

I just met him at Crypticon KC He`s at least 6feet4 and 6 5 at the very most. Also one heck of a nice guy.

In pics with tyler mane he doesn't look 6'5 but then he looks 1 inch taller than Adam Baldwin so 6'5 seems right

rob,do you really think he's a big 6'5 as ken kirzinger I think the highest ken
[Editor Rob: it's possible he's in 6ft 4.5-5 range, maybe ken is more nearer 6ft 5 and holds that height more than derek.]

I agree with Ali baba looked the same height of 6'4 padalecki (193-194) my guess

Rob, go to 4.10:
Same shoes, he does look a bit taller than Adam Baldwin but then he seems a bit closer to the camera... 6'4.5 isn't ruled out, i guess!
[Editor Rob: Mears generally looks 6ft 5 I think]

Jeff7488 Could you just post that picture here? This guy really doesn't look a legit 6'5.

Derek Mears is a legit 6'5". I'm 6'4" and he was taller than me when I met him at a con. I have a pic I can send to Rob if he wants it.

He had a scene with Adam Baldwin on Chuck and he did look a bit taller, not sure it is an inch though (and no footwear visible)... But next to Tyler Mane, he doesn't look much over 6'4. In any case, i doubt he's a big 6'5 man.

He had an inch on jared padalecki in friday the 13th so 6ft 5 is pretty accurate.

And that's giving the benefit of the doubt. Actually looks closer to 6'2".
[Editor Rob: that photo looks like it adds a little bit to Tyler's height.]

My ideal height..I wish i was this tall..;-)!!
Tyler said on 7/Sep/11
@Michael He didn't "tower" over Jared Padalecki. He has like a hair on him. You can hardly tell the height difference between them.

Derek Mears is huge, but lanky. The lankiness actually succeeds in making him look bigger though; long collarbone (broad) and enormous arms, as well as very long legs.
6'5.25" is my diagnosis. Clearly not a hair under 6'5" anytime.

His heights falls in the 'ULTIMATE DOMINATING CATEGORY'(6ft 4.5in-6ft 7in)he is almost a full head taller if u consider 5ft 8-9in as an average..!!!

Derek Mears is Huge, no arguement.
James said on 22/May/11
Derek looks 194cm if Jeff is 196cm.
Michael said on 15/May/11
Notice Derek's arms are longer than Jeff's although both of them are at the same height. He is perfect to be cast as Jason Voorhees as he towers above 6'4" Jared Padalecki.
CaptainSpaulding said on 11/May/11
This guy's a strong 6'5". He should be listed at 6'5.5".
Cranberries said on 8/May/11
Hey Rob, the formatting in the info is a bit screwy. You might want to fix that. But yeah, big 6'5" guy. 6'5" is an enormous height.
Jake T. said on 4/Mar/11
Mears looked very close in height to Jared Padalecki who is 6'4 so Derek could be 6'4.75 or 195 cm.
