Any chance you can add his 47 Ronin co-star Tadanobu Asano? He's a hard one to pin down as his footwear is all over the place, I've seen pictures of him edging out Taylor Kitsch and others where he has barely 3 inches on Hiroyuki.

He is often listed at 179cm but I would guess he's a little under that, maybe 177?

Looks 5 ft 6 inches (168 cm) tall in just about every film I have seen him in...sometimes, Rob, you underestimate a celeb's height...and on v rare occasions, you overestimate someone's height...but I believe with Sanada, you have got it spot on...and, yes, I agree with S.J.H - 6 ft 0.5 to 6 ft 1 inch Keanu was much (6 to 7 inches) taller than him in 47 Ronin.

Gheist, yeah I think this site is definitely underestimating his height. He is definitely no shorter than 5'7. Rob, you need to upgrade this one for sure. Maybe he put him in as 5'6 just because he is asian I don't know, all I know is Japanese, like Koreans, are not as short compared to other Asians, average Japanese male is about 5'8 much taller than 5'4 Vietnamese but not as tall as Koreans which average at 5'9

When seeing him in movies like The Last Samurai i thought he was at least 173-175cm range, im like a bit dissapointed, maybe its his posture.
Aman said on 9/Oct/14
Nah, I would put him closer to 5'7

A great Japanese actor - in all of his movies, looks every bit the 168 cm / 5 ft 6 rating that you have given him. You don't necessarily need to have height to be an action star.

Not really. Maybe for Asians in Asia, ages 50 and older. Heck, even South Korea's average male height is 5'9''. The ones in America with better nutrition, mostly more protein in their diet are taller.

If you check closely, Jackie's actually looking down on him a little. And this height would make sense since he's slightly shorter than Cruise in The Last Samurai.

I thought he and Jackie looked about the same height in Rush Hour 3? Must have been the camera angles.
