In the photos with the cast of the Avengers, he has a relaxed posture with wide feet, whereas Renner looks to be standing almost unnaturally straight, and we can't see footwear on either him or Ruffalo, so I'm not sure that's a good way to judge. he looked comparable with Maggie Gyllenhaal in Secretary, accounting for footwear. I believe 5'9 is fair.

Standing next to the cast of The Avengers he looks comparable to if not slightly shorter than Ruffalo. He's clearly shorter than Renner. 5'7.5 seems more accurate than 5' 9.5.

Spader was wearing a white slipper type shoe with a heal of .4'' or less. plus his posture was not good either throughout Pretty in Pink. he was playing his waspy bad guy role which matched the lousy posture director asked for it to be that way. as for McCarthy i'm not sure the amount of heel he was wearing normal 1''-1.25'' heel? he looked taller than spader and just about everyone else in the movie Jon Cryer is listed 5'8.75'' on here and he was basically Spader's height. 5'7'' is pretty short in real life and although spader looked that in the movie he is actually 5'9'', 5'8.75'' at the worst.

@Marikos so does Carell, most of the guys are that show are 5ft 11+ so it tends to make average height guys like Steve, BJ Novak, Oscar Nunez look short.

He is clearly shorter than McCarthy in Pretty in Pink, yet McCarthy is listed as 5' 8". I don't think Spader is 5' 9".

I always thought James Spader was about 5ft 8.He never seemed tall in movies.The 5ft 9 and a half listing must be in shoes with 1 inch heels on and i think that's abit generous for Spader.He must be 5ft 8 with shoes on so c'mon!!!

He does look especially short in the office, I would say below 5'9. Regardless, I love this man.

Spader was at least an easy inch taller than Alan Arkin and Paul Giamatti. Was an inch shorter than a young Jerry Seinfeld (close to 5'11 at the time). I am a huge fan and watched quite everything he's done and I think 5'9.5 is spot on for him. He's gained weight in the past few years which affected his posture and makes him look 5'9. Anything under that is crazy IMO...

Looks lower than 5'9.5 in the office next to 182 Ed Helms.
