I think he is 6'0.5'' or 6'0.75'' at best. Even if he is 6'1'', he looked more than just an inch taller than Evans, so you might consider downgrading Chris...

@Big Rob

I see a strong 6'1.25
Editor Rob: Leo he's got no less than 1/4 inch thicker shoe...but in person certainly not 6ft 1.5 (to make him 6ft 1.25)...
S.J.H said on 26/Feb/17
I'm pretty sure 6'1 kid Big Al is taller than a barefoot Olsen. 1/4 more shoe is just estimate by rob it looks more 1/3 than 1/4 honestly and from this picture he doesn't look over 12cm taller than rob and minus off shoes he can possibly be 6'0.5
Andrea said on 22/Feb/17
Oh, sorry, I meant that Mark has a smidge more footwear than Eric, not than you...
Andrea said on 21/Feb/17
Well, they both don't look much different in the pictures with you... And Mark has got a hair, a very thin hair ๐Ÿ˜, more footwear than you, according to the descriptions! Plus you yourself said that his range is 6'0.5-6'1, I doubt Al's range is as low as that ๐Ÿ˜‹
Editor Rob: both have fraction more footwear, but yeah if I was to bet on whether Mark or Eric measured taller I'd probably put it on Mark.
Andrea said on 21/Feb/17
So it was just a "mistake"? A good mistake, I must say... ๐Ÿ˜‹
Didn't you say that, WITHOUT considering any footwear difference, he didn't look any taller than Big Al in person? Isn't that enough to completely rule out the full 6'1? He does look pretty close to 6'1 with you, I must say, BUT, considering he has a 1/4 inch advantage, 6'0.75 would be the best shout!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Yeah, I would say he looked at least 3 cms taller than Chris and I can even see 1.5 inches in some of the scenes I've seen... That would make Chris a weak 6', to say the least
Editor Rob: he looked within the same range as Big Al.

Out of Eric and say mark gatiss, there is probably more chance of Mark being a little bit taller.
Andrea said on 20/Feb/17
Rob, why is he listed at 6'0.75 on the homepage and 6'1 on his actual page? Speaking of this guy, I saw him on TV a few days ago in a movie with Chris Evans... I've only seen a few scenes but he did look at least a good inch (1.25) taller than Chris, in quite similar shoes! And considering Eric himself isn't even a full 6'1...
Editor Rob: I fixed it, I have kept 6ft 1 for him, he could pull off looking 3cm taller than Evans.
S.J.H said on 16/Feb/17
There is no way LL Cool J is 6'1.5 and ECO stays 6'1. There is at least 2cm between them which is 0.75" and up here i could even tell the footwear is not 1/4 more is more like 1/2 or 2/3 more advantage
grizz said on 15/Feb/17
@Rob, seems like you're leaning on to the 6'0.75 estimate.
If that is true, Click Here then how tall is Michael Weatherly then?
You can see their footwear from 0:48 and them facing off from 1:30
Editor Rob: grizz, they can look pretty close.
S.J.H said on 30/Jan/17
Check on 6'1.5 nicolas d'agosto page like Berta say there is an inch between them i totally agrees it and sometimes lowest is still 0.75" between them. So a 6'0.75 is generous enough def not a 6'1 for 99% chances
Editor Rob: if I get round to watching Fired Up, I'll give a thought on how they looked, both have about half inch hairstyles I think.
Andrea said on 26/Jan/17
Rob said he didn't look any taller than Big Al in person, which means he looked 6'1 at most (without considering the footwear advantage, of course)! This means he cannot be over 6'0.75... ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜‰
S.J.H said on 26/Jan/17
If Olsen is 6'1 then nicolas d'agosto must be 6'1.75 and jack coleman must be 6'2.75 added chris evans 6'0.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/17
Looks 186cm in the photo but has a shoe advantage. I still think 6ft1 is fair game thoughโ€ฆ
S.J.H said on 23/Jan/17
I would rule out 184.5cm for Olsen and my legitmate 185.5cm older brother look taller than him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/17
Looks roughly 1in shorter than the strong 6ft2 guy
Man said on 22/Jan/17
Looks 6,2
Editor Rob: when you see how Eric looks (with similar camera position) to a solid 6ft 2.25 guy Click Here...you can see why I would disagree.

He's more like a weak 6ft 1, given he had thicker shoes.
6'0 said on 20/Jan/17
I'd say somewhere between 6'1.5 and 6'2.
Peter 179cm said on 20/Jan/17
@ S.J.H. He's taller than 184cm and also looks 186 with more footwear.He's definitely 185cm,now whether that's 6'1 or 6'0.75 it's debatable and hard to say.
S.J.H said on 19/Jan/17
This vote over 6'1 is ridiculous. He cant be over 6'0.75 especially he had like a cm footwear more than rob like rob mention. More like strong 6'0.5 or a good 6'0.75
berta said on 19/Jan/17
in some way this guy looks alittle like jim carrey . i dont know why they dont look like eath others att all but i always think of jim carrey when i see this guy. althoug jim carrey is 1,5 cm taller i think
S.J.H said on 17/Jan/17
If nicholas d'agosto is 6'1.5 then like i say ECO is close to 185cm but not solid 6'1. There is 2-3cm between them not 0.5'
Mark(5'9.25 said on 17/Jan/17
I still stand by my opinion that Eric is a legit 6'1" despite the footwear advantage.

dont think he goes under 185,5 according to the photo if we take away hair and a little shoe. i see strong 185 guy ore weak 186
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/17
185-186cm for me.
Peter 179cm said on 15/Jan/17
As i said before this guy looks a more legit 6'1 than Amell does.If he's really as low as 6'0.5-6'0.75 range then Amell is no more than 6'0-6'0.25 tops.
Tunman said on 14/Jan/17
@Andrea
Let's be honest,Rob is doing fantastic job,isn't he?
I understand your point and sometimes just wonder how it's possible to have celebs who seem different at a same mark...
Now whether we like it or not,actors claims also impact (though just a little) Rob's judgement.After all imagine that Jared claimed 6'3.75" just to confuse people he's not 6'4,then arguments for the mark would be very common in Rob's answers for the simple reason that 0.25" isn't really that easily noticeable even when you're called Rob Paul,now if he claimed 6'3 things would have been different.Since he met him and thought not over 6'4 then probably the difference looked 20 cm but no more.A honest 6'4 like he claimed a true one, a rare one
The problem is that we have guys like Momoa claiming 6'5 but who aren't that tall,it's great that Rob knows he's no more than 6'4 nevertheless he's unconsciously trying to link the 6'5 claim to his own guess and again taking the optimistic estimate of 6'4 rather than say 6'3.5 or 6'3.75"
Btw there is an actress who claimed 5'6.5" whom Rob listed at 5'7 as he didn't see her under that.An objective guy simple
Peter175 said on 13/Jan/17
looks 188 in this picture
S.J.H said on 13/Jan/17
@Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Jan/17

Mark Gatiss will edge him out by strong 0.5" , Eric Christian Olsen is more like dipping under 185cm and Mark Gatiss strong 6'1.25
grizz said on 13/Jan/17
c-mo, we have different perspectives. For me, Brian Austin Green is far from perfect height. With his stronger physique I thought for the longest time that he was barely 5'10. Imagine my surprise when I saw him listed here at 5'11. Tackles,although solidly built,seems to suffer for height complex. It's a really rare opportunity to see him wearing something else other than Timberland boots. Guess he craves to be a 6'1 guy (heck,I think he even claims that height!)
Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Jan/17
I change my mind. He does look a legit 6'1" like Mark Gatiss and Luke Mitchell.
Borats Chicken said on 12/Jan/17
rob, he looks like could be 6'1.25 in morning and 6'1 for the whole day
Editor Rob: Borat, for me he's a maximum 6ft 1 guy and could be 6ft 0.75.

grizz said on 9/Jan/17
@c-mo, why is he little too tall? Dude has the perfect beach body physique.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

dont get me wrong 6'1 is a great height ...with the right proportions it is phenomenal . but in some cases it looks too gangly and a bit "too long" .below 6'1 this happens not often but I noticed once you hit around 185cm or so (evening) you can very easily start to look a bit like a spider lol . it is a matter of view I guess because I dont agree with you that this guy has the perfect physique .

look up the pages of guys like Jensen Ackles , Matthew Davis , Brian Austin Green . those heights look perfect to me and they also dont look gangly

5'11 - 6'0 without shoes in the evening is the best height a man can have in my eyes . anything else is just an ego trip aka "I want to be taller than most meeeeeen"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jan/17
6ft1 too tall...lol
S.J.H said on 11/Jan/17
I still see ECO as a weak 6'1. He can't be 0.5 shorter than 6'1.5 nicholas d'agosto. There is at least 0.75" between them and sometimes look more like 1.25". 6'0.75 might be good shout than 6'1
Some dude said on 11/Jan/17
this dude looks taller than Stephen Amell and he is listed 6ft 1in LOL
Kaneff said on 9/Jan/17
@c-mo

I have to disagree. I think 6'1 is a great height, perfect even. I don't think he looks "too tall" at all. IMO 6'1 has the best proportions of any height, think guys like Obama, Ronaldo, Prince Harry, etc. I mean 6'1 looks clearly tall but nobody is going to use your height as an icebreaker or ask if you play basketball. At 6'2+ they might. At 6'0 it's more like "He's kinda tall/on the tall side" instead of being unanimously viewed as definitely tall.

I was walking around community college today when it was really crowded, observing people's heights, and thought my height would feel perfect if I was just 1 inch taller. I saw a lot of guys 5'11-6'0 but not as many 6'1+ because of how height is distributed on a bell curve.

I would say 6'2 is when it starts being too tall if you don't have a good build. A lanky guy can pull off 6'1 just fine but 6'2+ is harder. I would take staying 6'0 over being 6'2, but just barely.

"Editor Rob: it is my best guess."
Good answer, it makes sense... ๐Ÿ˜Š
No, it actually doesn't! ๐Ÿ˜ก It isn't "fair" that some celebrities get quite optimistic listings and you go with the top of the range they would measure in and other celebrities get the "middle value"! Honestly, 6'3.75 seems impossible for Jared, I don't buy anything under 6'4 for him! And hey if you'll ever manage to take a picture with Jared and he will look under 6'4 (like basically every "6'4" guy you took a picture with), I'll have no problem to say "he doesn't look over 6'3.5 or 6'3.75 with you"!!! But I would be surprised if he looked sub 6'4 with you! As for Eric, I have not seen anything of him but he doesn't look much under 6'1 with you, probably 6'0.5 at worst...
Editor Rob: from all I've seen and in person, I just feel about 6ft 4 is a fair listing, although I wouldn't list him under 6ft 4.
c-mo said on 9/Jan/17
do you guys remember when I said that some 6'1 guys dont look to have an "ideal height" ...that 6'1 is a little too tall to be perfect ? this guy is one of the examples of what I meant
Ly said on 9/Jan/17
Rob you think Amell and Eric fall in the same range over 6ft.05 and at best 6ft1.
Editor Rob: both could measure roughly 185, whether slightly below or above is a matter of debate.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 8/Jan/17
He easily looks 187 CM by you. 186 CM if you factor in the extra 1/4" of footwear.
184guy said on 8/Jan/17
@Rob,Jared falls in the 6'3.75 is very improbable
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/17
I get a taller impression from this guy than Amell but it could be the shoes
Andrea said on 8/Jan/17
Why don't you give Jared 6'4.25 then? You went with the "top of the range" with Stephen and Eric... Honestly, I'd be shocked if Jared was only 6'3.75 but not shocked at all if Stephen was 6'0.5!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Editor Rob: it is my best guess.
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 8/Jan/17
he is looking at top of rob's head comfortably. for a 6'1 man his eye should have been at rob's curve head. But in his case, is above that.
Peter 179cm said on 8/Jan/17
Rob struggles to reach his eyelevel in the pic,he's atleast 6'0.75-6'1 range.Definitely taller than Amell and about the same as Big Al,at worst maybe a few mm's shorter.
Jim hopper said on 8/Jan/17
Its strange because you have dolph lundgren 1.75" taller than him?
Editor Rob: Dolph has a 1/4 less than me, Eric has a 1/4 more than me, so you start off with a half inch swing...Dolph looked taller in any case before looking at footwear.
Andrea said on 8/Jan/17
If he didn't look any taller than Big Al, without considering any footwear advantage, wouldn't that rule out the full 6'1? ๐Ÿค—
He doesn't look under 6'0.5 with you, I agree! It's funny you guess people like Stephen or Eric within a very "large" half an inch range, saying they must be somewhere in 6'0.5-6'1, and then you say a guy like Jared Padalecki isn't over (or under) 6'4, more than a small fraction (probably 1/8th of an inch, considering you said you completely rule out 6'4.25 for him...)! And that should be even harder to guess from your point of view, considering that Jared is noticeably taller than both of them!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค
Editor Rob: the range is still narrow, I think Eric would measure between those figures in the same way I'd say Jared could fall somewhere within the 6ft 3.75-4.25 range.
TJE said on 8/Jan/17
Hard to tell how big his eye level is, but Rob's eyes are at his chin so 5 inch range is possible. I'd say near enough 6'1; wouldn't argue over it.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 8/Jan/17
Not a strong 6'1" person, but easily over 6'0" comfortably.
Balrog said on 7/Jan/17
Pushing 6'1'', but with footwear advantage he can't be this tall. I think 6'0.5''-6'0.75'' would be better.
Victor Surratt said on 7/Jan/17
He looks 1.86 in the picture with Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/17
On second thought, he looks a solid 5in over Rob. Similar to how Mitchell or Gatiss looked...
Andrea said on 7/Jan/17
If he didn't look taller than Big Al, why you list him at 6'1 then? He is taller than the 184 challenger, isn't he?
Editor Rob: Andrea, like Amell, he'd measure somewhere over 6ft 0.5 up to 6ft 1 at most.

for me, there is little chance he's over 6ft 1.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 7/Jan/17
Looks a solid 6'1" here.
Sam said on 7/Jan/17
Looks dead on 6'1 with Rob, and just under 6'1 without the 1/4" footwear advantage. Don't forget his hair might give him a bit more extra height over Rob. I'd say 6'0.75.
Kaneff said on 7/Jan/17
Textbook example of 6'1"
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 7/Jan/17
easily 6'2 in the picture.
Shredder said on 7/Jan/17
As listed
Andrea said on 7/Jan/17
He looks 6'1 MAX, without considering any footwear difference...
Take away a quarter inch and he looks more in the weak 6'1 range!
Did he look taller than Big Al, without looking at his shoes, Rob?
Editor Rob: Andrea, he certainly wasn't any taller than big Al.
I think probably Luke Mitchell that day looked the more classic 6ft 1 guy although he looked a bit taller and had more like a 1.25 sneaker, while I don't think Eric's shoe was more than around 1 inch.
Csimpson 6ft said on 7/Jan/17
He looks a legit 6'1er
Peter 179cm said on 7/Jan/17
Now that's how a legitimate 185cm should look like.Great photo Rob!
He actually looks 186 with advantage so 6'1 is on the money.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/17
Rob, did he look 6ft1 in person?




I see 4-5in between the two of you and he has an advantageโ€ฆ
berta said on 7/Jan/17
rob if we take away the hair he looks weak 187 guy to me and then the shoe advantage he is down to 186. By looking at the photo he is in the 186 range. falt 185 is out of question.
grizz said on 7/Jan/17
Lucky you,Rob! What's he like?
He does seem like a slightly more convincing 6'1 guy than Amell.
grizz said on 1/Dec/16
S.J.H not even in million years (Ok,more like 20 years given his age). By that logic, Michael Weatherly is a strong 6-footer
S.J.H said on 2/Nov/16
Nicholas d'agosto could be 6'1.75 and ECO could be 6'0.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/16
Watching NCIS again he can look similar to LL Cool J who might be nearer 6ft2 than 6ft1.

"Eric Christian Olsen's height is 6ft 1ยผin (186cm)"
justmyopinion said on 18/Dec/14
Update: I had it verified by the bartender tonight that it was, in fact, him. I'd also like to add that she said he is a very generous person. He tipped her $4.00 on a glass of water (which was of course free of charge).
justmyopinion said on 15/Dec/14
Does anyone know if he has ties to Columbia, South Carolina? I swear I just saw him at a bar tonight with a bunch of people dressed in suits and ties. It was a wedding party and as he was getting into a cab someone from his party called out to him and yelled "Eric!" I got a feeling it was him the second I saw him, but I was thinking "what the heck would he be doing in Columbia?" But a girl from the group I was with identified him too so it further cemented my belief it was him. If so.. and maybe it's a long shot, but he wasn't any taller than 6'0"
badboy said on 5/Nov/14
His height is bit confusing as he was 2 inches taller than Chris evans in not another teen movie but was 1 inch shorter than nicholas'd agosto in fired up
Mastro said on 16/Jul/14
I will have to check him out on Community where he does scenes with 6'4" Chevy Chase and Joel McHale. They are taller than him- but don't tower over him, either.
Graham said on 19/Apr/14
Saw him on set when I was an extra, solid 187 for eric. 2 cm shorter than me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/13
Around 185cm, although I think he can pull off looking near 6ft2 because he's slim.
LL Cool J edges him out. He might be 187-188cm, Rob?
tony t. said on 26/Feb/13
Thought he looked 6'2ish on ncis LA.
Balrog said on 14/Feb/13
Lo sgozzatore are you sure? Which episode was? Olsen can't be under 6'0''. If he's 5'11'' then Chris Evans is 5'9.5''.
Lo sgozzatore said on 11/Feb/13
He was in a Smallville ep and he looked way shorter than Tom Welling! I really thought he was 5'10-5'11 max! He was towered by Welling!
Balrog said on 2/Feb/13
He looks about 1in shorter than D'Agosto and also next to LL J Cool. Over 6 foot for sure but not quite 6'1'' I'd say. I'll put him at 6'0.25''. Krasinski also looked more than just 2in taller than him.
LJ said on 30/Dec/12
If LL Cool J is listed as 187, there's no way this guy can be listed at 185. He does look over 6'0, though.
Alex said on 15/Sep/12
On NCIS LA they showed his driving licence with 5-11.
steven said on 20/Jan/12
i think this guy is 6'1 in shoe. 5'11.5 like josh lucas. solid 182cm
LAN Jiao said on 20/Oct/11
in Fire Up Nicholas D'Agosto look from 3-5cm taller than Olsen. D'Agosto looks a solid 6'1.5 in final destionation 5 which i assume he is 187cm so no way Olsen can be over 6'0. 6'0 listing is rubbish for D'Agosto.
ECO - 183
ND'A - 187

Either he's 5'11" or Nicolas D'Agosto is 6'3".
J said on 24/Apr/11
Eric is 6'2". Most say he's shorter than Nick D'Astogo but when you see pictures of Nick and his costars from HEROES who are 6'3" he's the exact same height. He is also just a tad taller than LL COOL J and he's 6'1.5". So it's just Nick who has the wrong height listed online.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/11
186cm or 187cm?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/11
Could he be taller than 6ft1 Rob?

[Editor Rob: he's somewhere in 6ft 1 range, I think at times he does look taller, maybe his slimness adds to his height aswell?]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/10
He's between 6"1 and 6"2.
