He doesnt look close to that height in Mallrats. Cant see it at all, but i dont doubt this claim. He has bad posture in the film.

He looks 6'1 1/2" there (considering the uneven hair).

What can you say about this?

He appeared to be about 6'1.5" in person recently. Eric Bana who wasn't at all above 6'2" (more likely 6'1.75") would likely edge him out.

Rob, is the full 6ft2 possible for Lee?
[Editor Rob: I think the fact he came up with the 1.5 is good enough to say he wasn't a full 6ft 2.]

Seems like a guy who is easily in the 6'1 - 6'2 range, always seemed to me like a tall guy. I have mainly seen him in My name is Earl and at first glance gave the impression of someone who is 6'2.
GG Howard said on 3/Feb/15
I seen him in 2007.He was taking to another person but he towered over them by like 5 inches, I'm 6'3 so he looked like he was just an inch shorter than me
Ras said on 12/Aug/13
How come he did look shorter than Sigourney Weaver on heartbreakers?
Silent D said on 18/Jun/13
About same height as will smith in enemy of the state. Deceptively tall guy. Sometimes he looks under 6 foot but most times 187cm. 187cm is about right.

6'1.5 is a bit too high and here's why. We know Rainn Wilson is just under 6'2. In the office in several scenes Andy Buckley (who plays David Wallace) is about 1 inch shorter than Rainn Wilson putting him right about 6'1. Now to get to Jason Lee's height we compare a photo of him with 6'1 Andy Buckley. We don't know footwear but Lee is just a hair shorter. Based on this evidence I'd say Jason Lee is 6'0.75 and may graze 185 cm in the morning. Here is the photo of he and Buckley.

IMHO
Ethan Suplee - 6'0"
Jason Lee - 6'1"

His goof ball, scruffy image takes away from his height....strange but true...I figured he was around 5'11"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
Did look identical to Will Smith in Enemy Of The State. Weak 6ft2(187cm)
tom said on 6/Aug/12
I met him skateboarding in london in the early 90's,we both had airwalks on I think,I'm a shade over 6.2" and he seemed pretty much the same as me,no way he is 6,1". Hes certainly taller than that.
MaskDeMasque said on 14/Jun/12
6'1. no more, no less.
steven said on 15/Jan/12
i think he is 6'1.5 in shoe. he always look dab in 184-185cm to me.
nice guy said on 9/Jan/12
Its always good to know the actual height claim of actors cos its easier to estimate their real height..after checking some picture of him I came up with 184cm flat for him..in any case at least 2cm below his own claim since actors lie...some add 3 inches some only 1 inch to their height but in the end they all round up a little :D

I have to disagree with Rob, I say he DOES look tall in My Name is Earl, but he may not look quite so tall as he has broad shoulders.
In fact - and in keeping with continual references throughout that show - I'd say he not only looks tall ENOUGH, but wears a moustache well enough, that I'd rather see him play Thomas Magnum if they ever do make a Magnum, p.i. movie! Plus we know he can do the humour that made Magnum stand out from so many other crime shows before, then, and since!
He's certainly a much better candidate than the rumoured Matthew McConaughey, who is only 5' 10+3/4", and blonde!
Interestingly, considering "Earl" is about the character's belief in Karma, which is a Buddhist concept, both Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee are Scientologists! So for all most of us might say about that "religion", it seems they do turn out good actors!
E.g. Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Ann Archer are also followers.

He looked tall in my name is earl. In cop out much taller than bruce willis and tracey morgan. 187cm.
LAN Jiao said on 8/Nov/11
im thinking 6'1.5 morning minus 0.5 at evening/night for jason lee would be accurate.
LAN Jiao said on 10/Oct/11
in stealing harvard jason lee tend to slouch a little when standing near beside good posture tom green making him look 6'3. i doubt in real green is 6'2.5 at best and lee is max 6'1.5 , much possible he is 6'1.25 beat out fake 6'1 ethan suplee whose shorter an inch than 6'1 t.j.miller
LAN Jiao said on 7/Oct/11
Jason Lee is six one.two five
DejaVu said on 26/Sep/11
He is taller than Ethan Suplee who is 6'1. He must be close to 6'2
lorne said on 12/Sep/11
@Yaspaa

I am pretty sure Hennings is a solid 6'2...
Jean Alderton said on 8/Aug/11
He's Great in the part would love to see him in Lee Childs Novel any one of them . Great cast in Memphis Beat
andrew m said on 4/Aug/11
Further to my last comment, I just found out that the "6 foot 8" hulk" I mentioned from Season 4 episode "Bullies" of "My Name is Earl" is actor and former American Football player Matt Willig, who - it turns out - IS actually 6' 8" ! And that was just a guess on my part! Amazing! Now Lee Childs can't say there isn't an actor tall and broad enough to play Jack Reacher. I was amazed that someone of Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson's height and build could move so fast; I wonder if Matt Willig can too, given that he was an American Football player.
andrew m said on 4/Aug/11
I'm not sure who wrote the entry for this page, but I strongly disagree. He DEFINITELY looks big in My Name is Earl, usually one of the biggest guys in the show, with only Ethan Supplee (Randy) looking close. And considering that men 6 foot and over are more common in America, I think it's surprising you don't see that many other folk bigger (apart from last night's 2nd Season 4 repeat, where a schoolkid he bullied reappeared as an apparently 6ft 8" hulk!).
And if it's ever made, I think his height is great enough to propose him for the role of Thomas Magnum in a "Magnum, P.I." movie, and I used to think no-one could replace Tom Selleck! Speaking of movies, I'd really like to see a full length movie finishing off "My Name is Earl" properly. Are you listening, movie producers?!
Yaspaa said on 20/Jul/11
Sam Hennings from Memphis Beat is listed at 6'1.5, but is clearly taller than both Lee and DJ Qualls in the show. If Hennings is 6'1.5 that would put, I would guess, Lee at 184 and Qualls at 183.
Mudpuppy said on 9/Jul/11
He is definitely 6'1 1/2. And Affleck wears lifts . He has ego issues. Jason Lee is one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and he doesn't cram his politics down our throats ...
Bambi said on 4/Jul/11
Whoa I thought he looked 6ft3
Dmeyer said on 20/Jun/11
Hé did look 187 in person
thosch said on 7/Jun/11
in my name is earl - season 1 / episode 6 earl says that he's "185,5 cm"
RICHARD said on 30/Apr/11
No way is this guy 6'1.5,or even a flat 6'2.
In Mallarts,he was towered by Ben Affleck by a good 3 inches,and was more close in height next to Jason Mewes(JAY),who is at best a solid 6-footer.Affleck looked a solid 6'3 throughout the whole movie,and definetly looked bigger/taller than Lee.I'd say 6'0-6'0.5 for Lee,nothing more.
Lenad is sexy said on 29/Apr/11
I'd say 186cm min 188cm max
Anonymous said on 7/Feb/11
Damn jason i thought you were way taller than that
seann said on 23/Nov/10
Met him in Hollywood at a hip taco shop a few years back. I'm 5'7" and he was at least 6'0 to 6'1". Probably closer to around 6'1". He was with some of his cast members from My Name Is Earl. And was very polite and friendly. A real gentlemen. He entertained my two year old son while we waited in line. He actually offered to let us go in front of him.
Bob H. said on 7/Dec/06
Just watched the ending of Mallrats. Silly stuff!! Lee was about an inch shorter than Affleck. Lee was wearing tennis shoes. 6'1 1/2" would seem right.
Viper652 said on 6/Oct/06
Tom is a lot closer to the camers there. But he does look shorter than 6-1 1/2 in that picture.
Anonymous said on 30/Sep/06
Jason lee I say 6feet or a half. I saw him on the Conan O'Brien show and Conan towered over him by at least 4 inches or more. To be honest I think Conan is 6-4 1/2.
kene said on 15/Sep/06
in movie DREAM CATCHER he looks just188(6ft2) while apear.. he don't look lower than 186~187. think he at least 187tall..
Anthony said on 24/Aug/06
I agree with evanna. "Almost Famous" is my favorite movie, and Crudup looked at the very least the height he is listed at here if not just hitting 6'2. Crudup in the film looked no more than 5'8 in the movie compared to Patrick Fugit (who was about 5'6 - 5'7 when the film started shooting and grew to 5'9 - 5'10 before they finished filming). Lee is definitely a very tall and thin man.
Glenn said on 31/Jul/06
Thank you Evanna.Ive been trying to tell people Crudup was 5-7 or less.he got on his toes for his pic with me.Im 5-8.
evanna said on 30/Jul/06
I've seen Almost Famous at least a million times, and he absolutely towered over Billy Crudup. Although Crudup is probably around 5'7" or even shorter (he looked SO tiny in Big Fish), Lee is still a tall guy, certainly 6'1.5" or 6'2". Very lanky too.
CSD said on 5/Jul/06
I was standing right next to him last night at the Dodger game. Dude is a solid 6'2" and much more skinny looking in person. No platforms just regular tennis shoes and I was looking eye to eye with him.
SH said on 7/Jun/06
In my Name is Earl, I have found it quite hard to judge his height. Sometimes he can look really big and sometimes just 6'. However 6'1.5'' does seem accurate looking at his other roles. How come he looks so much taller than Suplee who claims to be 6'2'' (Suplee must be much shorter than this)
0kuma said on 5/May/06
6'1", maybe .5 extra, but not tall enough to be 6'2". In the current episode(05/04) of 'My Name is Earl', Joy steals Earl Hickey's driver's license, and it has his height listed at 6'1". I assume the state cannot add in halves or quarters of height in the DL. The mystery has been solved. Another case cracked!

[Editor Rob: well, he did say 6ft 1.5 and he has that mugshot thing on the show...I think this guy is legit 6ft 1.5er, one time billed as high as 6ft 3!]
316 said on 19/Jan/06
Definately luked 0.5" taller than the 6'1 David Schwimmer in all the scenes of the movie "Kissing a fool". I guess u have u got it absolutely right Editor Rob, Jason is defi 6'1.5"
Viper652 said on 4/Jan/06
"He looked around 6'1", maybe 6'2"." Your sighting confirms that he is 6-1.5 exactly.
gdawg said on 3/Jan/06
6'1" sounds accurate. He was eating no more than 10 feet from me at a Korean restaurant in L.A. He stood up and left with this blonde, while I was sitting down and eating. He looked around 6'1", maybe 6'2". Definitely not 6'3".
Anonymous said on 16/Nov/05
he does seem very tall. in heartbreakers he was at least 2.5 inches taller than ray liotta, who is at worst 5'11
Brett said on 14/Nov/05
On this sites Ben Affleck page, he was next to Affleck in a pic, and Lee was taller then him, and Bennifer is rated at like 6'2.5", so I reckon Lee is atleast 6'2"
Dorian 01 said on 1/Nov/05
Just saw him make a height comment on "My Name Is Earl". A woman asked him how tall he was, and he replied "6'1 ... and a half."

[Editor Rob: that sounds honest enough for me ;) Is that enough to take will smith down aswell now???]
Mr. X said on 16/Jun/05
I just saw him on TV and to my surprise he actually does look tall enough to be 6 ft 2. You are right editor Rob that people like Jason Lee and Chazz Palminteri don't come across as tall guys unless you actually pay attention to there heights.
Mr. R said on 19/May/05
I think Jason is this tall. He is about the same height as Ben Affleck.
Mr. X said on 19/May/05
We should pay more attention to this guy's height more often. You're right, he doesn't come across as a big guy. I mostly see him in those Kevin Smith films, and I thought he was probably around 5 ft 10. There are two reasons why I thought he was around this height- 1. He might be taller than some of his costars, but never really towered over any of them 2. Can you honestly say he's almost the same height as Ben Affleck?
