Jack O'Halloran's Height
6ft 6in (198 cm)
US Actor (Superman 2), former boxer. In 1972 Nevada Journal described "6-foot-6 244-pound brawler". I think he was once described as short as 6ft 4.

Near 6ft6, maybe 6ft5½ at worst.

I've read he was 6'5" which seemed more accurate than the boxing claims of 6'6". He has prominent roles in Superman I & II, Hero and the Terror and The Baltimore Bullet and in all of them, he looks in the 6'4"-6'5" range against his 5'9-10" co-stars like Terence Stamp and Chuck Norris. I'd reckon he was in the vicinity of 194cm peak...

Someone mentioned that he was exactly a foot taller than 6' Terence Stamp (who wore flat boots). 6'6" + 6" platforms = close to 7'.

Mr. Kaplan: Yes, but he wore at least 6-inch platform boots, especially because he was only 2 inches taller than Reeve.

He made Terence Stamp and Gene Hackman look short.. crazy.

Christopher Reeve was 6ft4 (according to this site), so O'Halloran wasn't much taller than him. That's why they needed to give him those huge platform boots, to make Non appear tall next to Superman.

I am his daughter and I can attest he was 6'6". I am sure he may have shrunk over the years but my father has been 6'6" since he was in his late teens.

Next to 6'2.75" Routh:
O'Halloran doesn't look more than 6'5" today.

Yeah I didn't realise the statue was on a platform. He might have been 6'6 at one time. He appeared in the 1976 remake of King Kong and was easily the biggest guy in the group.

The sculptor's of that Reeve statue went to great pains to make it as accurate as possible by having it be 6'4" barefoot. The statue is on a raised platform in the shape of an 'S' symbol but as far as I can tell, they are standing on the platform with him. If not, that would make O' Hollaran taller than 6'6" since the platform is raised a few inches off the ground. Peak height for celebs are always hard to gauge but considering the guy is 63 years old today, I'd be surprised if the still stood at the peak height of 6'6" he gives for himself.

Taking into account the photos from supes78 I'd say not much over 6'4 personally, and that was when he was younger.

Yup, those are huge lifts. And Reeve not only didn't have lifts, but the soles of his boots were very thin, so in terms of height he was essentially walking around barefoot. O'Halloran definitely looked taller than Reeve, but only by a couple of inches.

Crikey...some lifts. They would put Kane to shame.

He can't be 6'4" since he was obviously taller than Christopher Reeve in Superman 2. I think 6'6" is accurate.
