Max 177cm. 5ft10 early minutes after he drops down to 5ft 9.25 inches at night. Hes max 176.5 daytime.

Needs a downgrade- he was EXACTLY the same height as Kiefer Sutherland in Designated Survivor, and he was wearing giant boots with a footwear advantage, so I would even give the edge to Kiefer.

Rob, Walsh definitely deserves a downgrade.

Has never looked more than 5'9". Great-looking guy, but a bit below average height.

I saw Dylan last night in Hollywood with his daughter. He was surprisingly shortish at 5-8.

Mid 5'9 range.

No way he's 5"10, John Hensley is 5"10 and he looked definately 1-2 inches bigger than him. I'd say he's about 5"8.5

in 2002 blood works Dylan Walsh look 3inch shorter than "6-4" clint eastwood on "6-3" jeff daniels an inch. Dylan Walsh is 48years old so he is "6-1" now then since clint "6-4" 9years ago. although in stepfather i find him no way over 5'9.

he's about 176-177! Julian McMahon is about 187-188!

I would give him 5'8.5, even his body looks it. He's 5'10 with big shoes.

he could be 5ft10, although I doubt it after seeing 'Stepfather' yesterday. next to Sela Ward(listed 5ft7.5) he looks 5ft8-5ft9, with a weak 5ft9 probably closer to the truth. I was also surprised about Amber Heard in that movie. she looked 5ft7 max barefoot. that Penn Badgley fella is listed 5ft9 , so the 5ft6 estimates for Heard are not madness, as I thought b4. after all, 5ft6 is bordering tall for a woman. check it out Rob.

Yea, i know which scene your talking about. I have all the seasons of Nip tuck and just watched all of season 1 and finally saw when they try to have shower sex.. It was totally noticeable that Dylan was shorter than her. Whether they had footwear advantage or not, he could easily be 5'8-5'9. So yea.

Just watched a episode of nip tuck where sean and julia get shower together. I can only guess they were barefoot during this scene eventhough the camera showed nothing below their chest line. Sean was at least an inch shorter than Joley Richardson who is a good 5'9-5'10 herself. I'd give DW 5'8.5.
Alex said on 5/Jun/11
I think 5'9 is his real height.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 2/Apr/11
he's like 13-14 cms shorter than Julian Mcmahon! he's no more than 175!
SAK said on 21/Feb/11
177cm/5ft9.5 seems correct for him
Stiffelio said on 12/Feb/11
I agree: he's no taller than 5'9. Time to downgrade him, Rob.

he's about 172cm(5'7.75)
he did not look any taller than Sandra in The Lake House
Leung said on 22/Aug/07
He has always looked 5'9" to me, but 5'10" isn't out of the question
Stiffelio said on 20/Aug/07
Rob, to answer your questions: No to the first and Yes to the second. Now that you bring up Congo, the younger Walsh had a heavier build at that time and seemed even shorter than the current Nip/Tuck star.
Stiffelio said on 18/Aug/07
Heq, please have a look at the picture links posted by MD below. There's a clear 4 to 5 inches height difference between McMahon and Walsh. And now that they are questioning McMahon's height I'm even wondering if Walsh is 5'9" or even shorter.

[Editor Rob: did he have a good 3 inches over linney in congo and was he 3 inches shorter than ernie hudson?]
Viper said on 18/Aug/07
No way. Julian has almost 5 full inches on Walsh. Walsh is 5-9 at best.
heq said on 17/Aug/07
All I know is that Dylan Walsh only appears to be 2 inches shorter than tall Macmahon on nip/tuck. I'd say he's AT LEAST 5"10 (if macmahon is really 6"1.5)
Thomas said on 30/Apr/07
Thanks MD. This seems pretty clear. The difference is really really obvious. I rank him 5-9.. no way he is taller
Stiffelio said on 29/Apr/07
The height difference in these still pictures is never less than 4in but in most cases it looks like 5in or more. The same happens in Nip Tuck especially in full body shots (i.e the two guys standing or walking side by side). IMO McMahon is 6ft 2in and Walsh is 5ft 9 1/2in (max) and most probably just 5ft 9in.
Viper said on 29/Apr/07
He looks 5-9 to me. Julian 6-1 1/2.
MD said on 28/Apr/07
Rob, what do you think the difference is between Julian and Dylan in these photos, out of curiosity?

[Editor Rob: in the second one about 4.]
MD said on 25/Apr/07
With Julian McMahon who's listed at 6'-2.25":

Bill, Roma Maffia is leaning back against a table or almost sitting on it in that picture of the three together, plus Dylan is mor in the foreground than Julian. In long pane or full body shots it is clear that Dylan is way shorter than Julian, fairly shorter than Roma and even a bit shorter than Joely. There are far too many examples if you watch any Nip/Tuck episode. Dylan Walsh is between 5'9" and 5' 9 1/2".
Anonymous said on 22/Oct/06
Bill, watch the Season 2 finale of Nip/tuck when the three of them are walking through the airport. Maffia is taller than Walsh.
Joe said on 2/Oct/06
There's no way Walsh is 5'10. He has to be 5'8.5-5'9 max. There is a scene in the season 2 finale where him, Roma Maffia and Macmahon are walking through the airport together and Maffia who is listed at 5'10 is at least an inch taller. I would go 5'8.5 for Walsh.
MD said on 28/Jul/06
Rob, take another look at this one.
Viper652 said on 28/Jul/06
Yep, Walsh is 5-9 Max.
Stiffelio said on 27/Jul/06
If McMahon is only 6'1 1/2", then Walsh is 5'9 1/2" maybe only 5'9" tops.
Viper652 said on 26/Jul/06
Nah, Mcmahan generally looks 186-187 on Nip Tuck.
Glenn said on 23/May/06
I dont really know who he is.
Viper652 said on 22/May/06
Macmahon isnt 6-3, hes 6-1 tops. Id say Mcmahan is about 5-9
Stiffelio said on 22/May/06
Check Click Here There's zillions of pictures of Walsh, MacMahon and Richardson. Dylan looks more like 5in shorter than McMahon, who btw is only 6ft 2". He's also about the same height as, or shorter than, Joely who's 5'9". In We weere Soldiers he looked just barely taller than Mel Gibson. Conclusion: I insist on him being 5'9.5" barefoot. Have Frank2 and/or Glen met this guy?
GW said on 16/Mar/06
Met him at our magazine's anniversary party. Stood right next to him. We wore the same shoes. He's about 5'11". Definitely taller than Joely though.
Stiffelio said on 7/Jan/06
Luxe, many times it's the other way around: i.e. Joely taller than Dylan! It depends on the camera angle and relative shot range. This more evident in stil pictures of the two together (and also next to Juian McMahon). Try browsing Getty images. I stick with my guess that Walsh is no taller than 5ft 9.5".
Luxe said on 7/Jan/06
look closer where Joely and Walsh are side by side. Walsh has about an inch and a half to two on Joely
Adeli said on 30/Oct/05
Walsh looks shorter, than his tv- wife Joely Richardson in -Nip 'n Tuck-, but looks a bit taller than Mel Gibson in -We Were Soldiers-. In my opinion Joely Richardson is 178cm(5'10), Walsh 176cm(5'9.25)and Gibson 175cm(5'9).. something in those lines.

Everyone knows the "what would my name be if I were a porn star" game, now, what would my height be if I were a Hollywood actor/wrestler? +2inches for actor, +4inches for wrestler. Coming soon to a weirdly-shod personality near you!

Rob, that is not Eric Dickerson. He is the other Black guy in the second picture wearing glasses.
