@ Jordan87 - Yes, indeed, but sometimes it's thoroughly satisfying to sound off about how much you like someone, as it must have been for Shirley!
Editor Rob: on this site, I generally will delete 'i love you brad pitt' type comments, but sometimes the person has left a guess with it...if you've seen any a bit like that, they have most likely attached a guess to the comment.

I have followed him since early 70s it was his eyes so dark and in the sphinx he looked like a real Egyptian so tall and handsome no other actor could match his handsome face and now he is still handsome he was and still is my dream guy long may he stay at the top god bless you xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Well, blow me down, that is tall! I suppose anyone who's played the role of 'Dracula' is not exactly lacking in the height department!
Frank has turned his acting skills to many types of role. He was unspeakably evil in 'Lolita' (a very good film he starred in with Jeremy Irons), yet really loveable in 'Robot and Frank', shoplifting a soap cat, of all things! Fantastic! The little item was stored with his other free acquisitions!
I know Frank Langella to be an absolute gentleman and yes, he is one of the actors whose films I'd buy purely because he's in it.
I am trying to find his film 'Dave' and when I do I can take in how tall he actually is! In the meantime I can compare him to Johnny Depp in 'The Ninth Gate' and to Cameron Diaz in 'the Box!'

Nor taller than 6' nowadays, he doesn't look much taller than Mathew Rhys in The Americans

I think he was listed as 6'4" in the past, which is very unlikely. Yeah, only about an inch over Kevin Kline. Probably closer to 6'1" these days, not noticeably taller than Ryan Gosling in All Good Things. Worth another look, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he has shrunk a bit more by now.]

Rob would you change the first sentence to "American actor best known for The Twelve Chairs, Dracula (1978), Masters of the Universe, Dave, Good Night, and Good Luck., Superman Returns, The Box, Frost/Nixon and Frank & Robot."

I think there's better chance that Kline was actually 6ft2

(with Kevin Kline, 1991)
(with Johnny Depp, 1999)
(with Brandon Routh, 2006)
I think he was 6'2.5 peak. todày he's 6'1.5

Looked like a strong 6'3 next to Kevin Kline in 1993
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Nov/11
next to Brandon Routh he looks at least 3 cms shorter! Today he could be more 186, maybe its his posture
Lucoso said on 30/Sep/11
compared to shia in the wall street movie look barely 6 feet

If he was 6"3 or 6"2 then this actually gives Johnny Depp some height increase. Strangeeee.

I guess he was 6'3, He was visibly taller than 6' Geena Davis in "Cutthroat Island".

Jake, Neeson is a big guy but I saw Langella as Dracula on stage and he was at least 6'2" if not more in his heyday.
jtm said on 4/Mar/11
his footwear looked suspicious in unknown.
Viper said on 27/Feb/11
Wow, hes this tall? Never would have thought that.
jake said on 26/Feb/11
In Unknown he was easy three inches shorter than Neeson. I really don't think he is anything above 6"1.5 these days.

When Langella hit big in the 70's, especially when he did Dracula, he was lsited at 6-4. I met him the same day as I met Clooney, and he is about 6-2 now.

In Roman Polanski's the ninth gate, in the beginning look 4 inches taller than johnny depp.
Anonymous said on 7/Feb/07
yeah maybe I short changed Kline a bit...he might indeed be 6'2...so if Langella had lost an inch due to age...he would be 6'2 flat now
footballed28 said on 7/Feb/07
this guy has gotta be dead on 6'2...I watched Dave some 14 yrs ago and he was maybe 1/2 inch taller than Kline...he is even older now, so probably not even a full 6'2..Kline is 6'1 1/2 I met him in NY
[Editor Rob: almost 70, average loss of 1 inch by then...he's only claimed 6ft 3 anyway, so losing an inch]
Ed said on 21/Dec/06
Rob, is this Langella's peak height, because of every pic I've seen of him and Routh both premiere pics and from the movie, Routh has been taller by about an inch?
Fifi said on 9/Nov/06
Brandon has big hair, I believe that Langella is telling the truth about his height, because hair makes a person appear taller! He is 6'3.
bobby said on 16/Jul/06
yeah he does look shorter than brandon routh but a good 2 inches short which makes him 6'0 or 6'1 /2
D. Ray Morton said on 29/Apr/06
He's exactly the same height as Kevin Kline in "Dave."
[Editor Rob: shrunking a bit? peak 6ft 3...but remember guys like kline have done alexander technique and have great posture...]
CelebHeights Editor said on 19/Feb/06
I found him saying his height in HollywoodReporter in reference to a role:
"I am six-foot-three and Italian; he was five-feet-10 and Jewish"
Mr. R said on 12/Jan/06
I met Frank a few weeks ago at the Good Night and Good Luck screening with Clooney. He is closer to 6'2" at this point.
[Editor Rob: yes, he looks to have lost some height just looking at pics...although in 30's 6ft 4 could have been likely]
