nicknames just a nickname, but I do think that 5'7-8 range is pretty similar. 5'6, 5'9, and 6'0 are the points where it becomes solid short medium and tall. inch above 5'6 does make a magical difference, although it really isnt that much. proportionally, it seems much better. especially being only 2 inches shorter than 5'9, you can blend in as average easily. 3 inch difference is quite noticeable.

@what's with all the hate? Well to me both legitimate 5'6 and 5'7 range guys look short and 5'8 range guys (like Rob) below average. 5'9 to 5'11 range looks completely average, neither short nor tall.
Not hate, just stating my personal observations, but many people that I clearly see here have a problem accepting different opinions.

for some reason, 5'7 people tend to look somewhat average compared to the 5'6ers which often looks solid short. hate my life

Rob, you had a lot of height over your girlfriend (Jenny) that day, didn't you?
[Editor Rob: both in similar adidas sneakers, just probably a poorer stance there from jenny]

5'6.5" would be better Rob...What do you think?
[Editor Rob: it's not impossible, he may dip shy of 5ft 7, but I wouldn't think much though.]

I take that back, in the picture below he looks closer to being just one inch shorter, was that a different angle or something rob?
[Editor Rob: he can be a weak 5ft 7 guy]

yeah I don't see 5'7 either unless you have a footwear advantage rob, do you in this particular case?
said on 30/Dec/12
Rob, why are you about 2 inches taller than jenny here?
[Editor Rob: sometimes one person might not stand as tall, other times they do. Sometimes a camera can have a little distortion aswell - the way the lense is shaped, certain zooms or wide angles can enhance/reduce some of the image.
in that double shot it's just poorer stance than me.]

Gotta agree with the other posters. I am not seeing 5'7" here. Looks like a near two inch height disparity between Rob and James.

Not seeing 5'7" Rob. He's in the 5'6" and change range.

If he's really 170cm barefoot, Rob wouldn't look 5'10 in the top picture. He's around 168-169cm barefoot.

He is in the short men range @ 5-6..

Rob you look like you're hitting 5'10 in the top picture.
said on 30/Aug/11
Rob, you look an inch taller than Jenny here. Different footwear?
[Editor Rob: not in that case, but if there's ever differences it's down to postures, camera (including distortion)/positions/footwear/...]

Looks more like 5'6 in these photos. Also I think Lucy Lawless is 5'9 with Tricia Helfer 5'10 although I've noticed variations between these two in a few pics where sometimes Lawless appears taller. This will be dependant on the size of heels at the time.

I've seen Callis listed as 5'8, but in every BattleStar Galactica shot with Callis standing next to Sackhoff (Starbuck) they are *exactly* the same height. I've seen them in shots where they are both walking so boxes weren't used, however, you don't see their feet in those shots so there is still room for speculation.

with relatively short to average male cast
[Padraig: I've met Callis and Tricia Helfer in 2005. Helfer is very tall and Callis very thin, surprisingly so.]
