Comment on the Height of Jimmy Fallon

At similar wearing a solid shoes and Pitt posture i can look slightly taller than 6footers in pucs
Dmeyer said on 18/Nov/15
In thé pic with bundchen his shoes look 0.9in hé does wear 1.4ers at times but also normal shoes

Thanks Phil, you're sweet. Explain how this clearly blind person can so clearly see that Fallon is clearly edging out Lundqvist?

Please explain this: Click Here

And this: Click Here

How can you say Henrik Lundqvist was a clear inch taller? Fallon clearly appears taller. So how does the 5'11.5" Fallon magically eclipse the 6'1" Lundqvist by 1 inch, 1 inch+?
Phil said on 12/Nov/15
LincolnHawk is clearly blind.

I just came here to say that Henrik Lundqvist was a clear inch taller than Jimmy when they stood side by side so 5'11.5 seems just about right.
LincolnHawk said on 12/Nov/15
I am convinced Fallon wears at least a 1.5" lift inside his always oddly big heeled shoes. Henrik Lundqvist, who's 6'1", appeared on his show tonight and did a short bit and guess who was taller when they stood right next to each other? Of course, the lift wearing Jimmy Fallon! He had at least 1 inch on Lundqvist, possibly a liitle more. So I guess Jimmy can claim 6' 2"+! Gimme a break.

Then The Undertaker- The HUGE Undertaker- appeared, who you have listed at 6' 7" and is billed at 6' 10". Of course, Fallon stood right next to this huge dude and only appeared 4-5 inches shorter! Who does Fallon think he's fooling? His real height suits him fine but for some reason he wants to be this big guy. I don't get it and find it irritating

Howard is clearly taller just a few seconds before that previously posted still.

Jug said on 7/Oct/15
He seems to wear elevator shoes. He didn't use to be quite so tall. He can get up to 6 feet and a half with lifts. He's probably closer to 5'10 barefoot.
[Editor Rob: it seems more just a bigger heel, rather than an outright elevator shoe, but giving him about 1cm boost over other people ]
Allie said on 4/Oct/15
At least he's a little honest.. anyways, this seems right. Possibly 181, but a flat 5'11 seems too low imo.

him and Terrence Howard (6ft)
Wow, they're identical. Terrence is leaning slightly more than Jimmy. However, Jimmy doesn't look like he's wearing his regular dress shoes-these are some sandal-type shoes, so no additional boost from shoes.

"Jimmy Fallon height: 5ft 11¾in (182cm)"

Solid 182cm guy at night.
ItsME said on 14/Aug/15
Hey Rob. When you say that a celebrity like Fallon is 5'11.5'' do you mean 181.6 cm, which is five eleven and a half or do you mean a flat 182 cm
[Editor Rob: usually I'm thinking in terms of the 5ft 11.5 first so more the 181.6, but then Fallon is a guy who can pull off looking 6ft...albeit at times he wears larger than normal (1.4 inch) dress shoes.]

Rob, How many inches between Brock and Jimmy there? 2 or 2.5?

Click Here
[Editor Rob: face to face I think he looks over 2 inches, 2.5 is easy to see there.]
grizz said on 8/Aug/15
Rob, I hope this works Click Here If it does, do you still think Fallon is 5ft11.5 next to 5ft10 Bundchen?
[Editor Rob: grizz, I think he can be. She looks like she might be slightly nearer the camera, not a huge heel on her really.

But I notice Fallon is in those shoes he's worn at times which are more 1.4 inch styles, that give him a wee boost over the normal type of dress shoes. ]
grizz said on 3/Aug/15
@Blink, I think the listing's fine. I made peace with it. :D Take a look at the relatively recent dance-off with Michelle Obama (who's a strong 5'10)-both wore same footwear and Jimmy had around an inch over her. He wears small lifts that give him cca. 0.5-0.75in (my estimate) boost in height.
Leung said on 29/Jul/15
Just watched the Lip Sync Battle clip with Tom Cruise and was surprised at the height difference.
Blink said on 25/Jul/15
I actually think he's a legit 6 footer.
kazan said on 21/Jul/15
Looks like a stable 168.5 and a weak 170.5

Looked 2inches taller than 5f10.5 listed Sting on show last night.Both were sta eachother.nding right beside
Tr27 said on 19/Jun/15
When he stood around Hugh Jackman (who was in socks), Fallon looked about 184cm. However, he didn't take his shoes (which may have had lifts) off.
Triplescrew said on 7/Jun/15
I'd be willing to bet that Fallon does his research and wears a tiny lift whenever a 5'11"+ guest it on his show ;)
[Editor Rob: always remember - there are hundreds of companies worldwide and thousands of sellers on ebay who sell elevator shoes and lifts.

A proportion of actors will wear them. It can be hard to tell 1cm lifts though, this is the secret lift a guy like big G might wear at times...]
MD said on 6/Jun/15
Maybe some pictures will come out to show otherwise, but I'm watching The Tonight Show, right now, and the musical guess is 5'10" Jason Derulo. Jimmy's in his usual dress shoes, and Jason is in some sneakers with a probably average-to-above-average sole, and when Jimmy walked over, he didn't look any taller than Jason. The point is that Jason does not have a footwear advantage.

I've pretty well nailed down on his page that Jason isn't over his listed height. But, even if he were a full inch taller, it'd only make Jimmy 5'11". I can't believe I'm about to say this, but Jimmy might not even be a full 5'11" barefoot. Perhaps this is some proof he might be an occasional lift wearer? It's weird he'd do it one some nights show and not others, though.

A half-inch at the very least has to be taken off his height from what I've been able to gather. We already see that he's not quite as tall as Timberlake and then this.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/15
He can look 5ft11¾-6ft more than 5ft11½.
anon said on 21/May/15
can't compare fallon and timberlake as they both wear lifts. Timberlake not only LOOKS 5'10 proportionally but doesnt look much taller than it on screen/the red carpet without lifts. Fallon at 5'10.5 is more believable.
The Exorcist said on 16/May/15
Although Jimmy can look as high as 6'0" on occasions, the pictures MD posted are very good ones. Justin edges him out slightly.

Based on those pics,
Justin Timberlake: 5'11.5"
Jimmy Fallon: 5'11.25"
grizz said on 15/May/15
@berta, that's because he is 6 cm taller than Jimmy. Dwayne is 6'2,5 nowadays.
berta said on 13/May/15
i Think he often looks like a strong six footer like 183,5 :P but his shoes looks thick so maybe is more like 182,5. ore 182,6 :D nah just kidding. this seems right. buti would go with 183 bacause guys like will smith looks just a Little taller and dwyaune johnon only looked about 6 cm taller
Bishop said on 15/Apr/15
I used to think this guy was closer to 6ft. But then I saw the heels on his dress shoes that he wears. 181-182 cm seems right.
b-mint1994 said on 14/Apr/15
This listing seems bang on. He's making the downgraders frustrated lol.
grizz said on 6/Apr/15
With similar (heck, identical) footwear he barely edges out Michelle.
Click Here This is the last time I'm trying to downgrade Fallon, I give up.

Rob, how tall do you think he is with his dress shoes on?
[Editor Rob: he sometimes wears thicker heels at times, a 1.4-5 style, so on those occasions I think he would be 6ft 1]
Hypado said on 27/Mar/15
Jimmy Fallon Looks a weak 6ft (183 cm) guy next to 5ft 9.5in (176 cm) Taylor Swift.

Scroll to about 4 minutes into tat video, he doesn't look over 5'11 with Dan Akroyd...

He generally looked far from 6ft on SNL, not to mention he is clearly a bit shorter than Justin Timberlake. I still say 181cm is possible, clearly not 6ft like some say.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/15
A weak 6ft

CAN look 5'11.25-6ft but oftenly wears 1.3-1.4in so 5'11.5 is good

Jimmy Fallon is a weak 6ft - 182,7 cm
Drob92 said on 18/Feb/15
In those pictures of jt MD listed I can def see anywhere from 5'11.25-5'11.75 for Fallon. 5'11.5 is perfect
Lorne??? said on 18/Feb/15
Ok, first off, it's great to have the site back! For some reason I haven't been able to get on for several weeks(though in fairness I haven't tried in awhile as I gave up.)

But as pointed out, this guy is clearly and comfortably shorter than Justin Timberlake. And not just in 1 clip. Timber lake has host SNL 5 times, Fallon's hosted a couple times now, each Time they appeared on stage together, there is also his appearances on the tonight show and the recent 40th anniversary special.,. Timberlake is taller than him. Period.

What do you think about this Rob?

Also, Jimmy wears thick footwear at times. I'm not saying lifts, but he does wear 3 style shoes a lot.

I think 181cm is closer.
cole said on 17/Feb/15
@MD: I'm not sure Fallon would actually measure shorter than Timberlake. It would be better if we had a clear view of their footwear in those shots. In the second pic you can see where the floor meets the wall that there's a tilted camera angle that would favour Timberlake a bit. I agree though that 5'11.5 looks generous for Fallon, can't see when he has looked near 6ft other than when he was wearing tap shoes with NPH, Kimmel, Conan and Jane Lynch - with 184 cm guys like David Duchovny, Damian Lewis and Bradley Cooper he looks no more than 181 cm.
MD said on 17/Feb/15
Timberlake and Fallon can not both be listed at 5'11.5".
grizz said on 16/Feb/15
In pictures with Timberlake he looks 5'11.25.
MD said on 16/Feb/15

It may be time to downgrade him, slightly. I do not believe him under 5'11", but I'm also not convinced he's over 5'11", anymore. Here he is with 5'11.5" Justin Timberlake:

Click Here

Click Here

It's not a huge difference, but it is visually apparent, and that's considering that Justin is actually a full 5'11.5", himself. Either way, it shows that Jimmy is not over 5'11".

BTW, with the NBA players, I think what it showed, if anything, is the ridiculous particularly of Steph Curry's 6'3" listing.
[Editor Rob: I think Fallon pulls off 5ft 11.5 more than just a flat 5ft 11. I'd be surprised if he was just that mark, sometimes he can look even near 6ft.]

During the "Saved By The Bell Reunion" Jimmy was always standing closer to the camera. And old trick.
MD said on 6/Feb/15
"Famous" 4 cm lifts? Is this something he's "famous" for? I've never heard that claim in my life. Admittedly, I've come around to thinking he's a flat 5'11", but I hadn't know it'd been decided or assumed that he wore lifts.
grizz said on 5/Feb/15
I've seen an interview he had with Gisele Bundchen and at one point they stood up straight next to each other,she even took off her heels because Fallon felt insecure. So, she's 179 cm on this site and Fallon wore his famous 4 cm lifts. The difference between them she barefoot,he with shoes) was 1.5,maybe 2 inches at most. Either she's a full 5ft11 or Fallon deserves a slight downgrade.
Sal said on 5/Feb/15
Here is a good video of the saved by the bell cast with Jimmy Fallon. I see you have Berkley as slightly taller than Lopez. The biggest question is it looks like an inch height difference between Fallon and Gosselar
Pierre said on 4/Feb/15
Hello,in Dmeyer pic(4feb2015)just with this big heels and classic insole i think Jimmy Fallon has easily + 4,5cms and more if he as lifts inside. Bradley Cooper?seem have classic shoes(Classic heel and classic lace's angle).Lace's angle of Jimmy Fallon's shoes seem different(steep).Bradley has may be lifts inside?
Dmeyer said on 4/Feb/15
Click Here , maybe the 3.5-4cm dress shoe he wears in this pic explains whi he looks 6 ft at times
[Editor Rob: if an actor comes in with a 0.75in shoe he's going to be like 0.6in less beside Fallon if he wears them shoes.]
Dmeyer said on 4/Feb/15
With cooper and duchovny looks no more than 11.5 other Times he looks 6ft
Pierre said on 3/Feb/15
when he dance with Will Smith (~similar shoes?) height's difference is 4 cms?
CD said on 21/Jan/15
He could well be the full 6 foot he claims, he looks taller than Arnie and a 7-8 inches taller than Daniel Radcliffe.
Silent_D said on 9/Jan/15
181cm. He never looked that tall to me. I just saw him with liam neeson, liam is a few inches taller.
MD said on 12/Dec/14
That is crazy-talk.
tall guy said on 11/Dec/14
Jimmy Fallon is about the same height as Tom Cruise about 5'7" and wear 3" elevator shoes. His desk is also on an elevated platform and his chiar is elevated to make him appear taller than his guests. Take a look at their waistlines as they are sitting and Jimmy's is way higher than people that are way taller than him. Some are insecure about their short statue and try to create illisions.

Glorified lift fiend, just like Pitt, Willis, DiCaprio and Baldwin.
blink said on 15/Sep/14
@Rey thats not true mate High was at most 0.5 inches taller than him, making him 186-187 with shoes on. 182 is a good call
Rey said on 14/Sep/14
Hugh Jackman was on his show. Hugh and Jimmy played pool on an over-sized pool table. Luckily, Hugh took his shoes off and was still a few inches taller than Fallon. I think Fallon has height issues.
Dmeyer said on 25/Aug/14
Brosnan was 6'1.25-1.5in peak now he could be 6'0.75 with fallon near 5'11.75
Lebensdorf said on 22/Aug/14
Pierce Brosnan was on with him last night. Brosnan looked only an inch taller than Jimmy, if that. Jimmy appeared with Conan O'Brien a few times. Sometimes Conan towered him, sometimes not. Sometimes Jimmy looks 5'11, sometimes he can pass for 6'1. I guess he does wear lifts, but he's probably not shorter than 5'11.
Dmeyer said on 20/Aug/14
Comparing him to lesnar and meloni he look 5'11.5 no more so arnie is 5'11-11.5 and statham 5'8.5 wath do you think rob

Quest love he is not 6'2 and neather are you quest love lol jimmy is 5'10 or 5'11 max he wears 2 inch lifts which you can totally see when he hosts the tonight show c'mon people I'd say bare foot 5'10 period! Watch the movie taxi queen Latifa and him are the same height and she is 5'10

cole said on 4/Aug/14
@gregthegreg: He looked about 3 inches shorter in the dance skit because he clearly had bigger sneakers than the 6'3 Dwayne.
But then in the shake-weight skit he looked pretty much 4 inches shorter. I'm not convinced he's over 5'11.25 - his footwear on the show very often looks suspicious. I'd rather stick my bet on him being 5'11 - 5'11.5 than 5'11.5 - 6'0.
gregthegreg said on 23/Jul/14
The recent episode with Dwayne Johnson (who is around 6'4) Jimmy is his height and then taller during their skit...He most certainly wears lifts..

At times he looks more than 0.5in shorter than 6ft Christopher Meloni in this clip, they seem to be wearing the same footwear: Click Here
Alex 6'0 said on 28/Jun/14
Height181, I am not sure on Fallon's height. He's not someone I pay attention to really but if I had to say 5'11 would be my guess. Fallon's head looks to come a little passed Lesnar's eye brows and that's how I got a 3 inch difference.

it's fair for him to claim 6ft 0 his range is throughout the day probably 181-184.

He was a good inch or even 2 taller than Don Mattingly who's listed as 6'
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 7/May/14
5'11- 1/2 on the nose, maybe 6 ft in the morning. I saw the episode where Shaquille O'Neal tries on Jimmy's size 40 jacket, it's like a guy trying on a child's coat.. pretty funny actually. Incidentally, a size 40" jacket would put Jimmy at about the 170 pound category based on industry standards, so his medium frame might also make him appear slightly taller than life.
cole said on 28/Apr/14
At the very least he looks an inch shorter than 6'0.25 David Duchovny in this clip: Click Here
Reg said on 25/Apr/14
Looked at least an inch shorter than a legit 6+footer David Duchovny
Sam said on 7/Apr/14
Because of his slight build and mannerisms, Fallon can seem like a shorter/average height guy but when he's next to celebs, he's always surprisingly a bit tall. He definitely seems taller than 5'11" range guys.
cole said on 6/Apr/14
@chrisssss: I wouldn't say Henry dwarfed him, but he didn't look more than 5'11 - 5'11.5 range next to him.
Rodol said on 5/Apr/14 At the end you can see julian casablancas and him shaking hands, and they are about the same height, julian is listed like 188 cm, and him 182, is she taller or julian is shorter? xDDD

Honestly, unless this guy is forever in lifts - and I've never seen this. Maybe an insole for an inch or so of height, but I haven't seen lifts - I don't see how he can be shorter than listed. I used to think he was a 5'10" guy, but he's legitimately above average the more I've seen of him. He is one of the few who I don't believe have grossly exaggerated his height.
chrisssss said on 3/Apr/14
If fallon is 6ft. Then theiry henry(188cm)must be 6'5 he DWARFED him on his show, and henry was wearing normal sneakers while fallon wore thick heels. Rob. Downgrade

Looks a little taller than McConaughey here, maybe near 3 cm? But at around 02:00 in the video, you get a glimpse of Fallon's heels when he's bending over to hug Gisele, and they look a bit bigger than what McCongaughey's wearing. I don't think there would be much more than 1-2 cm between them barefoot.

Click Here proof!! For everyone saying he's taller than jt, its only cuz of lifts, watch the vid, they ate both wearin the same footwear
chrissss said on 10/Mar/14
jimmy fallon was only taller than jt on the late night show, but at the vmas, or on snl he was visible shorter, looked the same height as bryan cranston on the late night show, there is shot of him where it shows the heels of his boots and they were MASSIVE, so he is no stranger to wearing lifts, clear 5'10, and adam levine was taller than him as well and he claims 182cm
cole said on 3/Mar/14
@sss: Yeah, he should be added for sure. Compared to 6'1 Bill Hader, 6'ish Jason Sudeikis and 5'9.5 Andy Samberg, I'd say Seth Meyers can look 5'10.5 - 5'10.75.
Banshee said on 26/Feb/14
@MD Possibly it's not over 1 inch, but it's beyond any doubt that Fallon, who himself doesn't give a 'tallish' guy ( how 6 feet tall people are usually perceived as ) impression, is at least 2 cm taller than JT. JT can't possibly be anything over 180 cm out of bed.
Balrog said on 25/Feb/14
He is taller than Justin Timberlake yet they listed the same.
cole said on 25/Feb/14
Fallon is definitely taller than JT, at least by a cm or 2.
MD said on 25/Feb/14
Jimmy is taller than Justin, but it's not by as much as I think that you think it is.

On SNL JT looks 3 cm shorter than Fallon. Just look for the youtube video. Not to mention JT's wearing cowboy boots, while Fallon's got only suit shoes on.
Banshee said on 23/Feb/14

I'd say he is at least 6' which is weird because when you look at a body shot of him he doesnt really have the bone structure to be that tall, but standing next to Will Ferrell he's almost the same height and Ferrell is 6'3"
John said on 8/Feb/14
He looks about 3 inches taller than Tim McGraw (listed at 5'10) and McGraw is wearing cowboy boots. So... either Tim Mcgraw is shorter than listed, Fallon is taller than listed, or Fallon is wearing absolutely ridiculous lifts (unlikely).

Scratch that, the difference between him and Mitt looks closer to an inch than half-and-inch. Maybe some photos of this will come out and I can judge better.

Okay, this is weird, Jimmy's doing is monologue and Mitt Romney literally walks right to the side of him and stares him down, and I swear there looks to be maybe a half-inch difference between the two. Jimmy has on some serious lifts or something.

Standing next to Springteen who is about 5'10", Fallon has at least an inch over him so 5'11" sounds right
MD said on 11/Jan/14
He just had Andrew Rannells on his show, who is listed at both 6'0" and 6'1". He had a bare minimum an inch of Fallon. If Andrew is the latter, this listing is about right, but if Rannells is actually closer to 6'0", than I'm beginning to think he may be more a 5'11" flat.

With self-procalimed 5'11 Michelle Obama. They look similar in most of the shots, in some Jimmy looks a tad taller.
cole said on 6/Jan/14
Rob and everyone, you should watch this video: Click Here

I've referred to it before, but I might as well do it again now that people are starting to argue 6ft for Fallon, which I just cannot see. Both Jimmy and the 175 cm Joseph Gordon Levitt, as expected, get absolutely towered by the 201 cm Stephen Merchant - and whenever Jimmy and JGL stands side by side, I struggle to see much more than 5 cm between them. Footwear seems pretty even.
MD said on 2/Jan/14
There is a picture of him with Paul McCartney and a video from the same show. He's obviously in casual wear, so he's very likely in regular gym/tennis shoes, and he just towered the guy. I used to think he was average height, too, but it's become clear to me that he's fairly above average, and that's even when he's not in his dress shoes.
mId said on 2/Jan/14
I'm not kidding when I say this guy had the almost 3" heels on when he was interviewing UFC president Dana White a while back.. He did some kicks on a bag or something (goofing off) and it was the most obvious lifts I've ever seen(Think robert Downey junior heels on the set of Iron man.)

Justin Timberlake is listed 182 cm(5'11.5) on this site and he's taller than Fallon by about 1-2 cm when in same type of footwear as can be seen here.

Click Here

This guy is 5'11 tops.
cole said on 1/Jan/14
@Editor Rob: Fair enough. It's perhaps not always as obvious, but his heels does often strike me as slightly larger than that of a more standard dress shoe, so he will get a boost over others who's wearing more regular footwear. 5'11.5 is fine, 5'11.75 is possible (but a stretch) - 6ft I just can't see that.
cole said on 30/Dec/13
Rob do you agree that the reason he looks 6ft + a lot is because of his footwear? I could just about agree with this listing, perhaps as more of a morning height for him (5'11.5 - 5'11.75 zone), and that he really is in the 5'11 - 5'11.25 zone later in the day. 5'10 I can't see, but I doubt he's much over 5'11 flat after seeing the kind of footwear he pulls (see my comment from December the 5th). I'm keeping my mind open for 5'11.5, but at the same time I will never support a 6ft listing for Fallon (should it be given).
[Editor Rob: he can generally look 5ft 11.5-6ft, sometimes he might look 5ft 11 but it's more rarer I think than the nearly 6ft. I can't see anything obvious about his footwear, but then you can fit a 1cm lift in a lot of shoes and it won't be that obvious unless you look closely.]
mId said on 17/Dec/13
Jimmy Fallon is almost always wearing elevator shoes ala Robert Downey junior on his show. When in regular sneakers he's a little shorter than 5'11-5'11.5 Justin Timberlake. See..
MD said on 16/Dec/13
He was clarly taller than 5'10" James Marsden on his Friday show, so if he's not what's listed, he's at the very least 5'11". He just consistently looks taller than 5'10" guys, even back in his SNL days when he wasn't often in dress shoes.
CB said on 12/Dec/13
Weird how he is 5'11 but not much shorter than 6'4 Conan, i've seen many "5'11" guys next to conan and they look short but not Jimmy, i shouldnt be surprised thought most celebs wears lifts so jimmy is a true 5'11 it looks like
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/13
5ft11.5/182cm is a fair listing, IMO. But a weak 6ft wouldn't surprise me either. He's easily got a couple of centimetres on Alec Baldwin and Bruce Willis. In regular shoes he's probably about 6ft1.
dmeyer said on 6/Dec/13

This is the kind of footwear I'm talking about. And he's rarely seen in anything smaller than that on his show. That will surely give him a solid boost.

Click Here
With 173 cm max Jeremy Renner. Nothing but regular dress shoes on Jeremy, and a set of slightly bigger looking shoes on Fallon. The angle favours Jimmy and he's standing taller than Jeremy. Watch the video if you can find it. The difference between them can look even less than it looks in the picture.

Personally I think there's a reason why he was listed 5'10 (I know, he's taller than 5'10 flat) and 5'11 on most sites before last year. He claimed 6ft but he doesn't look it. You would think that he looks quite tall next to assumed legit tall guys on his show, which I will admitt has fooled me once or twice to believe he's around 183 cm. But then I spot his footwear which always seems big, and it makes me doubt he's much over 180 cm measured barefoot. 182 cm range isn't horribly wrong, but I wouldn't waste a minute arguing 6ft.
cole said on 29/Nov/13
I can agree with this listing, but he's not taller than 182 cm. Before you label him a 6-footer: remember his footwear. Always chunky.
dmeyer said on 28/Nov/13

@Blob: That's not a good shot to compare them, we can't see their feet and the camera favours Jimmy. Plus Vegard is under 5'9, closer to 5'8. Bard is around 5'11.

Just saw him with Harrison Ford. Seemed a couple of inches taller than Ford.
Sam said on 21/Oct/13
Fallon is a weird height guy because he can seem a solid six foot with almost everyone under six foot but then get him next to a tall guy like Henry Simmons in Taxi or Anthony Bourdain and he can seem 5'10"ish.
johnny said on 10/Oct/13
Click Here with the annoying Bieber kid. 180-182 cm for Fallon seems right.
cole said on 28/Sep/13
@MD: Exactly. And if we take a good, close look at his footwear, for example in that pic you posted on NPH's page, his heels seem pretty well stacked compared to Neil's.

He always seems to be in that type of footwear that gives him an extra boost, which makes me very suspicious. I'd definitely argue 5'11 flat over 6ft.

Here's a video from when JGL and Merchant was on his show: Click Here
I'd say he looks 5'11 flat.
Joe said on 28/Sep/13
I saw him standing next to Hugh Jackman who is supposedly 6'2. Unless Jackman was wearing big soles he was a good 4 inches taller than Fallon. He cant be 6 foot and probably barely makes 5'11
nyc said on 27/Sep/13
@Fitzy: It's the entertainment industry. That means it is largely based on your appearance, voice, and personality. Yes of course there is ability. But height is a huge part of appearance, and being taller is naturally more attractive than being shorter for men.
cole said on 23/Sep/13
@Tony: Jimmy looked the listed height with Obama in that video. But I've seen those dress shoes he's wearing on the show, and they don't seem so regular to me. Still think he's 180 cm range.
cole said on 22/Sep/13
He has claimed 6ft, but was listed 5'10 most places for a long time. I'm going to stick with the middle option: 5'11.
Fitzy said on 21/Sep/13
I enjoy comparing human heights as much as the next bored hobbyist, but why all the secrecy and manipulation? I understand that a variety show host is more appealing when taller than most guests, but heavens to betsy, the use of lifts is so dishonest and ultimately emasculating. Peeps in NYC and Hollyweird need to grip some reality.

cole said on 9/Jul/13
He looks 180 if Bowler is 183.
Rey said on 7/Jul/13
He is a tough one to figure out. I did see him wear clogs in numerous skits on SNL. I am guessing 5'11" at best. He did appear to edge out 5'11" Rachel Maddow on his show, but she was wearing sneakers and he had his heels.
chrissss said on 6/Jul/13
Im 10000% positive he's 5'11, seeing him right now next to neil harris and us an inch shorter, he's also the same height as adam levine and jimmy kimmel

He actually looks very near 6' in this video...

B.T. Stomp said on 11/Jun/13
I just saw Jimmy Fallon interview Russell Crowe for 'Man of Steel'.
I-M-D-b lists them both at 5-11.5.
G-o-o-g-l-e lists Crowe at 5-11 & Fallon at 5-10.
Despite the fact that Fallon is clearly taller.
When they were both standing straight in what I initially thought were regular dress shoes Fallon seemed to have at least 2-3" on Crowe.
Considering what I've heard about Crowe wearing lifts that would put Fallon over 6 feet.
Upon closer inspection I noticed Fallon seemed to be wearing some kind of dress boots with a larger heel.
Crowe was even standing closer to the camera, hell it might've very well been the camera angle.
All factors on the table; real vs listed height, footwear, camera angles, etc.
It seems in this case there may be no way to figure it out.
Estimates; Crowe around 5-10 & Fallon around 6-0.
LG69 said on 28/May/13
Jimmy is kinda hard to figure out. He looks about 1" taller than 5'10.5" Jay Leno, but 2-2.5" shorter than 6'0 Tiger Woods. Either TW is taller than 6'flat or Jimmy wears lifts.

Rob, good job. Look at the Evolution of Mom Dancing video on Youtube. If Michelle's 5'11" and he clearly looks taller than that (granted she's wearing flats) then obviously he's 5' 11.5" spot on. Great Work Rob!!

Seriously, even sites that list Timberlake 6'1 has this guy at 5'10. Fallon's being upgraded 1.75" to keep Timberlake and various others at their inflated listings.
jasperwazup said on 20/Jan/13
some sites have him at 5'10''. looked roughly two inches shorter than tiger woods who's a weak 6'1'' side by side. not to the nearest millimeter but approximate. honestly 5'10'' seems right.

Like Jimmy Kimmell he's around 6ft in his on-camera costum dress-shoes. And like Jimmy Kimmell he's 5'10 at most barefoot.
Josie said on 15/Dec/12
Yup, I've been noticing for quite some time that Jimmy has the metacarpals (hand bones) of a shorter man. Also, since I tailor men's clothes, I keep noticing that he wears the suit coat at the length that is porportionate to a man about 5'8", 5'9", yet his full stature height doesn't seem 5'9"/5'9" next to many guests. The guy has to be in heels is my guess. Same way you see a 5'2" woman in 3" heels, she still has the body proportions of a shorter woman. Your eye on the full length body naturally observes the existing proportions and the heels don't fool you into thinking otherwise.

Dave618 said on 10/Oct/12
Good one, Fungo!;-) I'm kind of interested in celebrity's heights because, as a 6'2" guy myself, I am conscious of being taller than most. Not crazy taller like Shaq, but I'm usually one of the tallest guys in a Mall, Casino, etc. I think I read being 6'2" makes you taller than 95% of other men.

As a kid I was kind of embarrassed. I was almost six feet by the age of 12. I stood out like a sore thumb in my class and was often made fun of because of my size. Now it's cool. I like being 6'2". It's strong tall and you get noticed for being tall but it's not freaky tall where people stop and glare at you with mouths open.

I wonder a lot what other celebs are around my height, that's why I like to find out how tall they are. Plus it's fun to see if what your estimate of their height is compared to what they are listed as here. Fallon always seems to me to be tall. I can't think he's less than six feet even. Maybe slightly bigger.
Fungo said on 8/Oct/12
What difference does it make how tall a celebrity is? I can't answer that because I'm always curious about people's height too. It bothers me that it bothers me. Jimmy Fallon is very talented, and seems like very decent dude too, and on top of that, Priest Fallon is Jimmy's great, great, great grandfather. That's why he won't have Daniel Day Lewis on his show!
Dave618 said on 2/Oct/12
I saw Liam Neeson on Jimmy's show last night and was surprised to notice Jimmy held his own hight-wise with Neeson. Liam is 6'4", and Jimmy looked about 3 inches shorter. I have got to believe he's AT LEAST six feet tall, maybe 6'1".

QuestLove --how can Fallon be 6'2" when Tom Welling towered over him for the Smallville season finale on Jimmy's show?????
Tom said on 25/Sep/12
I was watching Saturday Night live a few years ago when Pierce Brosnan was on. The camera pulled back an Jimmy was weraing these clog shoes --atleast a 3-4 inch. I did not know if it was part of the sketch, but he appears taller than Pierce and I thought that was odd.

I met Jimmy last year when he was here for the Houston rodeo, I'm 5'7 and I stood right next to him in flats and i was suprised to discover he was probably only about 2 inches or so taller than me. He might be 5'9-5'10 but not at all taller than that.

tebow was measured 6'2 6/8ths at both the combine and pro day
Duhon said on 16/Aug/12
@dink Yes but the NFL always rounds up to the nearest digit. If he was measured during the morning the tallest he may be could possibly be 6'2 3/4". So him looking 6'2" at some point of the day is not that weird.
Dink said on 16/Aug/12
Pretty sure tebow was measured at 6 2 and 3/4 at the combine barefoot. So he is at least pretty close to 6 3 at some point of the day
Stretch said on 14/Aug/12
Not to cloud up the Jimmy Fallon height issue, but there is NO WAY that Tim Tebow is a legitimate 6' 3". He was in Tampa to open a sports clinic and we were within a few yards of him. Extremely ripped but 6' 2" at best.

fallon is a flat 5'11" maybe even 5'10.75". tebow is a solid 6'2". brees wakes up a hair above 6' but is really a strong 5'11.5" at bedtime. i saw both shows and all it proves is fallon uses an extra boost in his footwear. tebow has nasty posture which is why fallon can keep up and why he throws like a female.
da_truth said on 2/Feb/12
Jimmy and Tim Tebow looked almost the same height last night on his show... I don't know, Fallon always looked 5'11" to 6', so is Tebow not really 6'3"? Tebow looked about 1 maybe 2 inches taller than Jimmy, but not much more.
New guy said on 2/Feb/12
Well, I just saw Jimmy next to Tim Tebow on his show who is listed at 6'3. He didn't look any more than 1 inch shorter than him. I'd say Jimmy is 6'2 like another poster said! But, it could be he wears heels in his dress shoes. But, Tim was also wearing dress shoes. Hmmmm
MD said on 30/Jan/12
You may very well be QuestLov; you have such obscure taste that I'd not at all be surprised to find this is actually you posting. That said, even Jimmy would never claim 6'2", because he knows how ridiculous that would be. He's either 5'11" or 6'0", but certainly nothing above.

eric said on 14/Aug/06
he's been described as tall according to

" Jimmy is tall, good-looking (he was among People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in the World for 2002) and funny, which are three characteristics that almost every woman lists as essential in their dream man. But what draws girls to Fallon is that he gives off an image of being very sweet and shy. For some reason, these characteristics have elevated him to "Internet heartthrob status" to young girls. "

for the record, this dude got mad talent
Dan said on 13/Jul/06
Remember that SNL Celebrity Jeopardy sketch where Jimmy portrayed Robin Wiliams? He looked pretty short there. In fact he goes and stands beside Will Ferrell and he appeared to be way more than 4 inches shorter. Even Darrell Hammond towered over him and I don't think he's all that tall.

Jimmy looks like another 5'11" guy that can get away with 6'0" in shoes, and being thin really adds to that illusion. I think that even if he wasn't leaning he'd be only be 2"-2.5" taller than Glenn.

mcfan said on 19/Sep/05
Rob, is this proof from you that Jimmy is 6ft with LL Cool J? To me, LL Cool J is three inches taller than Fallon in this photo making him 5'11. I disagree with the J. above saying only two inches. Look at the distance with their eyes and just figure out where LL Cool J.'s head would be without the hat. Fallon is 3 inches shorter than him. I thought Christopher Walken was taller than Fallon by an inch on SNL.

[Editor Rob: no, the series of pics was reason to knock him down a cm and erm, maybe 1 more! ;)]
J. said on 19/Sep/05
Eh, the LL/Fallon pic pretty much puts Fallon in the 5'11" range. He's two inches shorter than LL. LL has a slight slouch. I was just watching Taxi the other night. He was about 2 inches taller than Latifah. So, he's 5'11"-ish; Lah- 5'9". It's that simple.

I would take him down to 5'11" (180 cm) just for being a Red Sox fan. :)
But no, I've gotta say that he really does look 180 cm on the dot, Gisele Bundchen is about 5'10"-5'11" and seemed about 2-3 inches taller in heals.
Mr. R said on 6/Apr/05
If you want a crash course in digital picturemaking that distorts heights, look at the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. They have Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore from the new film Fever Pitch, along with Johnny Damon of the Boston Red Sox. Fallon is ususally listed at 5-11, which seems close. But Damon is listed at 6-2, which also seems close from the games I've seen. But the cover shows Fallon almost 2 inches taller than Damon, so clearly trickery was used to distort the image. It ges to show that we can't believe the studio publicity photos, nor billboards and movie posters!
dmeyer said on 28/Mar/05
