He looks 6ft3 w/h Arnold!
said on 14/May/17
I think he's 188cm , look at ths pic with Arnold
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/17
Could look 187-188cm at times
berta said on 11/May/17
the average guess seems a little high bit i still believe he is littel taller than the listing closer to 187 but not a strong 187 guy
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 28/Apr/17
Solid 186 as listed.
said on 27/Apr/17
Rob, which of these would you go for?
I really think he's looked over a very wide range of heights throughout his career…I still find 6ft1 flat too low.
Editor Rob: I'd say at times I think G, but other times it's not impossible E

@ dracula - Very well said!
dracula said on 26/Apr/17
great actor, his portrayal of the Christ is simply phenomenal
it's a shame hollywood put him aside after the movie, hope his career can take off once again
Willes188 said on 22/Mar/17
Rob, this is a solid 187cm guy, i'm 100% sure
berta said on 16/Mar/17
this guy was 1/4 taller than arnold at peak not 1/4 under.
berta said on 21/Feb/17
it look slike he have very loose posture these days in every photo. but 187 is fine for him. alexander ludvig is probaly 190 and stod with good posture where he won 1,5 cm more. a barely 187 guy is what he is. and just over 188 in the morning
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/17
IMHO, 187cm is the better listing for him and may even have once gotten 188cm in the morning...so he's claimed both
berta said on 6/Feb/17
he really looks 187 most of the time. alexander ludvig have great posture and is clearly 189 thats why he looked taller
Wiles189 said on 30/Jan/17
Solid 6'2 guy, he is tall!
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jan/17
Jim was outstanding in 'The Passion of the Christ'. He really portrayed the agony that Jesus underwent to the best of his ability. I have even heard
people of non-Christian faiths and athiests say the same. My brother hates me to watch it as I always cry.
It was first lent to me by a young girl down my road. I said to her "How can you stomach watching this? You're still a child!" She was only about 9 or 10 and I'd met her stroking a cat some 3 years previously!
Jim was also in a thriller called 'The Highwayman', which is an exciting, fast-paced road movie. It was in this production that I took in the fact that he is well over the 6ft mark. 'The Passion...' is so gruelling to watch that I didn't give the actor's height that much thought. I did notice his height, though, in a very welcome scene of light relief when Jesus is fooling around with his mother. It was lovely that they showed him with a sense of humour.
I am going along with 6ft1.5; that is taking into account the film's about 20 years old now (I think!) and Jim could have lost a bit from the 6ft2 he says he is 'on a good day!'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/17
I'm sticking to 186-187cm zone for this guy. 185cm just looks too low
berta said on 23/Jan/17
good update. 185 was to short for him. to me he looks 187 buy could be 186
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/17
Cazeviel would definitely edge Stephen out
said on 17/Jan/17
rob, what changed your mind on Jim being 6'1.25?
Editor Rob: he was on it for a good while, and I think he can pull it off.
Andrea said on 11/Dec/16
I do agree with Rampage about the fact that Jim does give a taller impression than Stephen for sure (his slim figure, good posture and proportions can certainly make him look pretty tall) but I doubt there would be that much difference between them! Maybe half an inch...
Andrea said on 10/Dec/16
That Alexander Ludwig guy seems quite consistent with his 6'2 claim on Twitter and he does look over an inch taller than Jim in photos! Maybe he's another Lance Reddick/Jack Coleman guy who says 6'2 and he's half an inch taller than that but, even if he was 6'2.5 range, that would still make Jim around 6'1! So a fraction over 6'1 isn't impossible for sure but I don't think he'd be that much over this mark... 6'1 1/8 is my guess :P
Btw, the producer/creator of POI, Jonathan Nolan, does look "comfortably" taller than him in photos! I thought you said he looked over 6'1 but maybe not quite 6'2...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Dec/16
This looks more reasonable. I find it hard to picture him and Amell being close in height. Proportionally Jim looks like he'd be near 2in taller!
said on 9/Dec/16
Rob, I doubt he has lost anything (well apart from a couple of mms, that's not impossible)... He does look a pretty fit guy! And no, he is a guy with pretty good posture, at least in POI (maybe not as much as Stephen Amell but I certainly wouldn't say he "doesn't stand quite as tall lately")!
I've always said that 6'1.25 was arguable at times for Jim but the more I see of him the more he looks right around the 6'1 mark! A decent 6'1 is what I think he'd measure! Look at him with Alexander Ludwig, who himself claims 6'2... He can certainly look more than an inch taller than Jim! Or even with Roger Federer and Michael Jordan! They can make him look barely 6'1!!! Now, I wouldn't want to argue sub 6'1 for sure (in fact, if I had to choose between 6'1.25 or 6'0.75, I certainly would pick the first one) but the old listing seemed fair enough! A genuine 6'1 guy...
Btw, it seems he did claim 6'1 (flat) at some point: "In Washington Post talking about the Bobby Jones film he said 'I'm 6ft 1'"
Editor Rob: yeah he has claimed a few marks from 6ft 1 to basically almost 6ft 2.
I don't think a solid 6ft 1 is unreasonable for him though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/16
Rob, is a slight upgrade possible?
He really does look 186/187cm zone more often than 185/186cm. If he did indeed measure nearer 6ft2 earlier in the day then it's definitely more feasible. If he was just 6ft1 then the only time he could have measured almost 6ft2 is straight out of bed
said on 8/Dec/16
Rob, maybe give him 186?
Editor Rob: I think 15 years ago he could look a more solid 6ft 1 guy, the 1.25 is probably reasonable but he could have lost a tiny amount or simply doesn't stand quite as tall lately.
said on 6/Dec/16
Rob, what Andrea was doing there was actually mocking me in the way I give A, B, C, D questions...I feel bad that he actually made you answer that...
Editor Rob: yes Rampage, he was indeed.
said on 30/Nov/16
Rob, which one for Jim?
Look at him with Michael: Click Here
It is just one clip and they're outside but I think the ground is quite flat there... Anyway, there are thousands of scenes where you can "compare" them in POI! I do think the difference is generally right around 4.5 inches, sometimes maybe you can argue a smidge more!
So I'd choose A-B range over D-E... I wouldn't rule out F (187.7cm/185.7cm) for a younger Jim, though!
Editor Rob: Andrea, I'd choose C.3, 185.43.
In all seriousness, I think Jim could be guessed at from 6ft 1 to 1.5, he has looked along that range of heights through his career. Maybe his almost 6ft 2 claim is earlier in the day.

heelshealheight said on 5/Aug/16
Interesting.. Mel Gibson claims to be circa 5ft10 (of-course..and I'm the Pope), and Caviezel downgrades himself to circa 6ft..
Andrea said on 7/Jun/16
No, 6'1 is a perfect listing for Jim!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/16
"Jim Caviezel's height is 6ft 1½in (186.69cm)"
I would rule out 185cm and 188cm (even though he can look that).
berta said on 27/May/16
DOnt beleive he and harrison ford are the sam height.(was). I Think he is 186
Andrea said on 20/May/16
Well, Rob, that guy from Modern Family is about the same age and you said it is believable he has lost some height, as he says...
Jim does look a fit guy, i don't think he has lost anything too... With Alexander Ludwig and Michael Jordan he doesn't look over 6'1 but i do agree he can give a taller impression on his own! Unlike other guys listed at 6'1 or even over on here, this guy always looks tall and taller than most of the people he works with!
said on 10/May/16
Rob, would you give him 6'1.25?
Editor Rob: he did have 6ft 1-1.5 in recent years. I doubt he's a guy who has lost anything by 47.
said on 1/May/16
Rob, you think the camera angle, makes him look 6'2?
Editor Rob: in some photos he can look that tall, but the more I see of him with others I think he is nearer 6ft 1 than 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/16
186cm, no less.
Elias said on 24/Apr/16
He is the same height as Federer
Brad said on 13/Apr/16
6'1" Flat seems a tad too low imo. I believe his claim is genuine. A tall man for sure.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 26/Feb/16
Peak height 6'1.5" listing seems possible?
berta said on 24/Feb/16
He looks like 187-88 but with alexander Ludvig he really doesnt look taller than 185, But Ludwig may be 190 now ( late blomer ) so maybe jim is 186. But if he is 185 then it means that Quaids peak height was about 181
said on 20/Feb/16
Rob, reading the old comments, it seems he also claimed 6'1 in the past... Interesting! He seems very honest about his height! As i said, it's not impossible he was a fraction over this mark! I really did think he was an easy 186-187 guy at the beginning! He always looks tall in POI, taller than most of the people!
Editor Rob: some guys would stand 6ft 2 morning and around 6ft 1 evening...maybe they got measured 6ft 1.5 one stage in life, then another they were not much over 6ft 1. It may well apply to Jim.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/16
I'm sorry but the very thing you were doing to Errol Fynn you are now subjecting this guy to. He's got to be in that 186-187cm range. He can pull off 6ft2 a lot of the time
S.J.H said on 10/Feb/16
He atually means he was 6'1.75 but strange thing is that he often apear a weak 6'1 rather than 6'1 on the nose like rob given. I did point out strong 6'0.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/16
Rob, then why don't you list him somewhere between those?
Andrea said on 9/Jan/16
It's not impossible he has lost a fraction, maybe... All that running and shooting in POI might have made him lost a few mms but if you look at him with guys like Michael Jordan, Alexander Ludwig, Federer and also Michael Strahan he doesn't look (much) over 6'1!
6'1 is a fine listing! 186 i'd say is not 100% impossible for a young Jim, though!
said on 9/Jan/16
Rob, could 186cm be closer?
The original weak 6ft2 listing looked spot on I thought.
Editor Rob: he has looked anywhere from 6ft 1 to 1.75 during his career.
bobby3342 said on 4/Jan/16
aren't these heights barefoot estimates, while standing tall for measurement? 186 is more realistic for this guy . 185 isn't even 6 1 hes not that small
Sarah said on 24/Dec/15
Possible 186, based on Person oF Interest.
Andrea said on 27/Aug/15
I don't know about Quaid but yeah Jim can look near 2 inches taller than him in photos, well no less than 1.5 inches for sure! Still i don't think Jim would be much over 6'1, so Quaid is probably nearer 5'11!
Drob92 said on 1/Aug/15
Hey rob if caviezel is 6'1 quaid must be downgraded. You have quaid at 6'0 peak but at their peaks Jim looks to have about 1.5-2 inches on quaid. Quaid is probably more 5'11.75 peak maybe and 5'11.25 currently
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/15
6ft1 flat is too low.
Sean73 said on 29/Mar/15
A strong 6'1" guy to me.I put him at 6'1.25" in the evening.I saw him in chicago not to long ago and he was at least my height,and i'm 6'1" flat.
said on 12/Feb/15
Rob Wath made you go from 6'1.75 strong 187cm to 6'1 under 186cm
[Editor Rob: I think more I see the more nearer 6ft 1 might be more realistic. ]
Andrea said on 9/Jan/15
He's a legit 6'1 guy, that's it! He looks 4-4.5 inches taller than 5'8.5 Michael Emerson, so this listing is perfect! In Person Of Interest he always looks tall and that's the perfect example of a 6'1 guy!
184.3cm said on 24/Dec/14
Shame he isnt british i said to my wife other day he would have made a great Bond. I dont see them making an American Bond though.
sixfooter said on 24/Dec/14
He's 6'2 definitely. Tall dude, I keep thinking, why didn't they pick him to be the older Batman? He could be awesome
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/14
188 definitely said on 24/Nov/14
Met him last month.
184.3cm said on 30/Sep/14
Tallest 185cm guy ive ever seen. Amell wouldnt match up to this guy.
Andrea said on 1/Sep/14
Well done :)
I would have kept him at 6'1.5 though because it's not fair having guys like Smith and Carrey at that height and not him!
said on 31/Aug/14
Rob, new pics with Roger Federer and MJ:
Even there, he doesn't look over 6'1... 6'1 flat for this guy really seems more plausible! But then again if guys like Jim Carrey and Will Smith have a 6'1.5 listing on here then this guy deserves a generous listing too :)
[Editor Rob: yeah, there are also other recent photos of him with alexander ludwig which probably add to the (not over) 6ft 1 mark.]
said on 21/Aug/14
Here are some pics, Rob:
I'm starting to think he might be a 6'1 flat guy... And that also would make sense when you see him next to Michael Emerson (they could be 174-175 and solid 185)! What do you think, Rob?
[Editor Rob: it is a possibility]
Andrea said on 12/Aug/14
Rob, take a look at him with Alexander Ludwig... He certainly doesn't look over 6'1 with him ;)
Dave said on 22/May/14
In Deja Vu his height is listed as 6-1 on his rap sheet, however in the same film Denzel is described as 6-3 which is obviously bull****e. JC looks taller as hes a very slim guy probably weighs in the region of 165-170 at 6-1
said on 27/Apr/14
Rob, sorry if i insist. Do you really think he looks 5 big inches taller than Emerson? To be fair, they look similar to what Jensen and Jared look. And you say there are only 4 inches between them. He's at least 4-4.5 inches taller than him, no doubts. But 5? Not so sure. On the other side, i wouldn't put Jim under 6'1... If Jim is really near 6'2, as your listing, Michael does look a solid 5'9, like 5'9.25. And he does look that mark even with Matthew Fox or Terry O'Quinn (if their listings are close to the truth, of course).
[Editor Rob: his 6ft 1.5 bad day might be on the money]
Andrea said on 15/Mar/14
Rob, i thought 5'9 would be ok to support your other listings... I mean, don't tell me you think there are 5 big inches between him and Jim. There are many photos on the net, where you can see he looks like 4.5 inches shorter than Jim. He looks around 5 inches shorter than Matthew Fox, who still gets listed at 6'2. It would be interesting to see what he claims. On POI he gets described as short in an episode, even if he never looks short to me...
Mr. R said on 12/Mar/14
[Editor Rob: everyone dropping quarter inches except you R, what's your secret ;)]
My secret: Cheap Wine! LOL
said on 9/Mar/14
I saw Jim last year and is another quarter inch shorter than before.
[Editor Rob: everyone dropping quarter inches except you R, what's your secret ;)]
said on 8/Mar/14
Wouldn't be more appropriate to give Emerson 5'9?
[Editor Rob: I'm not as sure he looked that with some of the lost cast, 5ft 8.5 is ok, 9 I'm not so sure.]
said on 7/Mar/14
Rob, he claims 6'1.5 himself... In POI, he does look pretty tall. Does he really look more than 4.5 inches taller than Michael Emerson, though? If Emerson is only 5'8.5, he doesn't look much more than 6'1 to me... But then again, Emerson holds his own next to many tall guys. Could he be 5'9 range? And what about their costar Kevin Chapman? Maybe 5'7 range?
[Editor Rob: maybe he has more average and good days than his 6ft 1.5 bad days, 1.75 is a good inbetweener.]
Sam said on 1/Mar/14
Not a full 6'2". About 6'1.5". Still pretty tall.
jilli said on 1/Dec/13
I think he's gorgeous never mind his height
Garett said on 18/Oct/13
That picture with arnie is ridiculous!
Weird i watched escape plan today and he barely looked 6'1
Vinnie jones on the other hand was deffo wearing lifts he had 3" on jim
Bouncer said on 18/Oct/13
I shared the same thought when I first saw this pic, but then I figured it's very likely that Caviezel is wearing Elevators there.
Seriously, look at his shoes!
said on 16/Oct/13
If hes 6'1'' so how tall is Arnie these days? Click Here
said on 11/Oct/13
Looks 6'1.5" based on cast photo: Click Here
noob said on 2/Jul/13
He looks 6'3" on Person of Interest with dress shoes on. Ironically, he sticks out far more than his low profile character should, because he is so distinguishably tall.
Anybody that says 6' has terrible depth perception.
Bakel said on 18/Mar/13
I think he's honest, he was around 1 inch taller than 6ft2 listed Luke Macfarlane (who is more 6ft1 I think)
rob89 said on 6/Mar/13
Surprised he's this tall, doesn't look much over 6' flat in Person of Interest to me. For some reason he kinda reminds me of a younger David Duchovny, who happens to be a legit 6' himself. Not saying Caviezel is just 6ft but he can look it a lot IMO, even when his posture is decent.
patryk said on 19/Jan/13
In "Person of Interest" tv show he's the tallest guy in every single episode. They call him a "tall man in Suit". I am 6'0 myself and while i am aware that its around 2-3 inches above average height of men in western world, they would never call you like that if you were a bad guy lol.
said on 5/Nov/12
Here is a screenshot from The Count of Monte Cristo.
Him and Guy Pearce look identical in height.
Ed Kline said on 26/Oct/12
The reason he seems taller at 6'2 than a lot of other actors who are supposed to be 6'2ish, is that he really is that tall, while a lot of others round up or outright lie.
daminator47 said on 11/Feb/12
Why he looks so much taller? Looks like 6'3" guy.
vicarious living said on 7/Feb/12
He looks taller. I just saw Angel Eyes. Loved that movie. Watched it over and over again, but I rented it so it will expire today. He just looked so tall and elegant with that trench coat flowing behind him
Attila_194cm. said on 28/Dec/11
I think he is a solid 6'2(188).
5'8.78123456345 said on 9/Dec/11
He's 6'2, he looked towering in the movie "The Count of Mone Cristo", Guy Pearce looks a clean 5'10, and this guy completely towered over him
juliflyer said on 28/Nov/11
Hey, are there really 7 "thebad"s? Sorry, I just couldn't let that one go by. Anyway, Jim Caviezel is certainly an under-estimated actor, as well as underrated. I completely agree. I forgot about Angel Eyes, and next to Jennifer Lopez, he does tower. I'm really glad to see him in something so original, a series I can watch every week.
thebad7 said on 31/Oct/11
Jim Caviezel is one of the most underrated American actors working today. I like him best as the mysterious Catch in 2001's ANGEL EYES--alongside a surprisingly compelling Jennifer Lopez. Anyway, I knew he was tall, but I was surprised at just how tall he really is. He is excellent in the new television series, PERSON OF INTEREST. 6'2" is spot-on for him--he looked this in relation to several other 6'2" actors who guest starred on POI and most of the time, he towers over other cast members/extras/etc. Long, lanky and athletic, he's a textbook 6'2".
LAN Jiao said on 31/Oct/11
he only look 1/2" taller than 6'0 ron pearlman. i supposed he is 6'1.5 in shoes. 6'0.5 barefoot.
Brock said on 29/Oct/11
"In the movie "Unknown," him and 5'10 Barry Pepper looked roughly the same height.
They stood face-to-face in many scenes too."
@KT you are a Low-Life with a Capital L, I hust saw the movie unknown and cavizel has atleast 4-5 inches on Barry Pepper even a Blur sighted person can note that.
Christian said on 19/Jul/11
He is a pure 186-188cm guy. Watch the movie "Déjí -vu"(with Denzel Washington),you'll see.

it surprises me everytime to see him listed 187cm, i always thought he is max 183-184cm but indeed he does look 190cm most of the time in shoes.
he dont have the best posture ever though, that would explain it.
yep 186-187cm is accurate.
Derek said on 7/Sep/07
Did you know he played in an episode of The Wonder Years as a basketball star at Kevin Arnold's highschool. credited as James Caviezel

His profile said 6'1 in the movie Deja Vu.
Del Mar said on 20/Sep/06
Listed double I think? Here at 187 and 185 at the other listing..
[Editor Rob: this one is the correct one, with the 2 quotations he's given, the other page should be ignored]
Anthony said on 14/Aug/06
In "Frequency" he definitley had a few inchs on Dennis Quaid who's 6' even. I'd give him 6'2.
dmeyer said on 3/Aug/06
he looks 186-7 range

He looked about only 1-2 inches taller than guy pearce in the count of monte cristo, plus in that scene guy wasn't wearing shoes

I would definately state Jim Caviezel as 6'2", as noted from articles including his basketball career information.
CelebHeights Editor said on 25/Nov/05
In Washington Post talking about the Bobby Jones film he said 'I'm 6ft 1'
CelebHeights Editor said on 28/Aug/05
From the Houston Chronicle 1999: "On a good day I'm maybe 6 feet, 2 inches; on a bad day maybe 6ft 1 1/2"
Translation - early morning measurement 188cm, late afternoon 187cm ;)
Cowboybluegray said on 14/Jul/05
Jim is 6'2" or taller. I met him and he was much taller than I am. I am 5'- 10". I think he may be about 6'2" & l/2
Boxing Fighter said on 22/Jun/05
Yes, I do agree with The Wanderer. By thin red line, it look like that Jim was 5ft11, or even shorter. (same height as Penn, or a little bit taller, not 15cm or 5 inches.)
Mr. R said on 22/Jun/05
I believe that it was in the Washington Post interview during press for The Passion movie, he said that he was 6'1". Before that, when Thin Blue Line came out, he has always listed at 6'2".
