@Arch: I was actually about to mention Con Air. There wasn't a lot between Cage and Cusack.
But I think the former was in boots. He was definitely 2in below Nick Chinlund (also listed 6ft2 but might be a little over it). Cusack had at least 3in over 5ft11 Colm Meaney.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Jul/15
Rob can you add a photo? Barely an inch on Cage in Con Air, but Cage could look
6ft 1 in it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jun/15
Not under 188cm.
JJF said on 11/Jun/15
The ultimate 'B' list movie star :-)
No way he's over 1.88m
Sam said on 1/Jun/15
Rob, could you Better off Dead..., The Sure Thing, Saying Anything, The Grifters and Bullets Over Broadway to his credits?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Mar/15
More likely to be 6ft2-2 range than 6ft1-2, IMO.
Mat 5'10 said on 23/Mar/15
I dunno if it's worth adding in the description, but in the movie 2012 his ID has his height as: 6-03
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Feb/15
Con Air and Grosse Point Blank...a brawny 6ft2-6ft3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jan/15
Reynolds and Jackman are both 6ft2 flat.
Sam said on 8/Jan/15
I'd agree but I think Cusack could be a tad over 6'2" if he straightened up at his peak. I see Reynolds as very even 6'2" and Jackman as a guy who might dip to 6'1.75" range by afternoon.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Dec/14
I think he'd edge both Jackman and Reynolds back to back
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Nov/14
6ft2-6ft3 in Grosse Point Blank with Dan Aykroyd.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/14
Pattinson could be 6ft flat. He was 2in shorter than Pierce Brosnan in Remember Me. In that movie with Cusack he was noticeably shorter aswell.
Judd said on 16/Oct/14
Sam, not sure about it. I think that there could be a bit more than what showed those pictures, but not 2"...I think 1.25" between they is fair, and I wouldn't put pattinson under 6'0.5" for any reason...
Sam said on 14/Oct/14
The difference between Pattison and Cusack is more noticeable in the shots I posted back in May from Cannes...in some he looks more than 2 inches taller than Pattison. Then again some of these shots could have warping, proximity and posture that favors Cusack in those like Pattison is favored in the pics posted by Judd.

Rob , what did the Plumber think he was? 6'2?
[Editor Rob: yes that's what he thought he was from an earlier measurement I believe (not by me, I don't measure people wrong...well, apart from the one time I lost 1.35 inches from someone, but let's not go there).]
Judd said on 14/Oct/14

for sure Cusack doesn't look 6'2.5" with robert pattinson...
i think pattinson is 6'0.5" and Cusack a strong inche taller, so like 6'1.75"...in the top picture i see a 184 guy next to a 187 one.
184.3cm said on 13/Oct/14
I think John is a really good example of a legit 188cm, when i watched Con Air years ago i thought that Nick Cage was 5'10 cause i assumed John was a 6 footer. Really surprised me he was so tall but its clear he is when you compare him to other actors at premiers and other events.
Andrea said on 13/Oct/14
Tim Robbins came out with a "precise" 6'4.5. A real 6'4.5 is gonna look very tall, especially in Hollywood! What if he really was never over a strong 194? It's not impossible! I think he generally looks near enough 6'5 but a 6'4.5 guy with a good posture will look a big 6'5 (or even over) to most of the people... You got some cases of people who actually make you think twice when you're about to give a listing to people! As Rob said, the plumber looked at least 6'2, even in person, and is just about 6'1.5. So, if a guy like him can pull off looking a solid 6'2, think about guys like Cusack or Jackman who already look under 6'2.
[Editor Rob: even the plumber was surprised he measured that low, a guy in his 20's ain't really gonna be losing any height, but Jackman is what 46, I'd never rule out a chance of an actor in 45-50 range losing a small fraction, especially if they did a lot of physically demanding roles, like Jackman's done in last 10 years.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/14
More chance of him being 189cm than 187cm

He does look a weak 6'2 next to Tim Robbins (if Tim really is only 6'4.75) and certainly doesn't look 6 inches taller than guys like Zac Efron! 6'2.5 could his height in shoes, 6'1.5 could be his real height!

First of all, Tim Robbins is more than 6'4 3/4" and John Cusask being 6'2"-6'2.5" barefoot just reinforces that fact.
Judd said on 12/Oct/14
I think Cusack is 6'1.75-2"...he looks more than 4" taller than his sister Joan, who's never been below 5'8.5" for sure...6'2" could be taken from a measurement made after 3-4 hours since he woke up, but I wouldn't put him below 6'1.75" as I said before...
Andrea said on 12/Oct/14
Even 6'2 is too much... Could he be 6'1.5?
[Editor Rob: steady on, it took me a few years to end up putting MFox at that mark, Cusack I am not as convinced he is quite that low.]
Andrea said on 12/Oct/14
Rob, could his claims be "in shoes"? I mean, don't tell me he looks a solid 6'2 next to Tim Robbins or Zac Efron!
[Editor Rob: from the 2 movies they were in that had scenes together, 6ft 2.5 might look too much, unless you are of a view robbins really was over 6ft 5.]
Andrea said on 10/Oct/14

mike said on 25/Sep/14
Rob, would you consider putting him at 2.25? since he claimed both 6ft 2 and 2.5 like what you did with Tim Robbins.
tk said on 18/Sep/14
6ft 2.5 or 1.89 for John Cusack. Certainly tall and very good actor. And with a very good taste in music...
Arch Stanton said on 19/Jun/14
@ Marcus

More chance of 189 I think.
Sam said on 19/Jun/14
If he's 187 cm, then Robert Pattinson is under six foot, which is doubtful.
Marcus said on 17/Jun/14
187 cm

Sam@
totaly agreed
rob?
[Editor Rob: you could say about 2 inches, some of the shots they are far apart so it's harder to guess]
Sam said on 20/May/14
He looks at least 2 inches taller than Robert Pattinson...if anything, these photos seem to imply that Pattinson is barely six foot.

I could buy even a 3 inch difference in this shot.

Dejavu said on 9/Apr/14
6'2 could be a bit over
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/14
He could look a bit shorter in Money for Nothing but I think he's an honest 6'2" guy.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Jan/14
Looks it in Being John Malkovich.
sean73 said on 16/Jan/14
Defo a solid 6'2" guy at knight.
Ted said on 10/Jan/14
Looks 6'1" to 6'2" in most films. Neither measurement would surprise me.
Big Sam said on 1/Jan/14
If Hackman is listed as 188 on here and Cusack as 187, how come the latter appeared visibly taller in Runaway Jury? Interesting.
[Editor Rob: cusack is 188 and hackman at that time had probably dropped a little ]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Dec/13
Rob, will you give Cusack the 6ft2.25?
Raptor Jesus said on 28/Dec/13
in '1408' he looked about 1 inch taller than Samuel L. Jackson. in The Sure Thing (1985) his carachter claims to be 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/13
I'd be interested to see him face to face with Hugh Jackman. I bet they'd be identical.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/13
He's more 6ft2-6ft3 than 6ft1-6ft2, IMO.
sambo said on 31/Oct/13
watching 1408, he looks at least as tall as Samuel L.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/13
"John Cusack height: 6ft 2.25in (189cm)"
berta said on 26/Aug/13
weak 189
greg said on 23/Aug/13
I saw him about ten years ago in Malibu, and he looked at least 6'2" - I would have said taller than that - but if he says 6'2" then who are we to argue?
Hypado said on 12/Aug/13
1.88 is right.
cole said on 21/Jul/13
Rob do you think he could be a shade over 6'2? I think he's an honest guy when he claims 6'2 and 6'2.5, like he's between those two depending on the time of the day he measured. He seemed about 1 inch taller than Craig Robinson (requesitng a page for him!) in Hot Tub Time Machine whom I think could be 6'1.5 range, at least he looked it next to Ed Helms in The Office.
[Editor Rob: there's not many 2.25 listings around, he could fit it]
Ted said on 19/Jul/13
Yes he always looks tall in movies
A person at least 187 plus.
he stacks up well against other tall people except Tim Robinson.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jul/13
Rob, maybe he's somewhere between his two claims?
Caroline said on 9/Apr/13
Just see a clip of 'Adult World' where he's next to Emma Roberts (wearing some kind of wedge sneakers) and he looks so tall! I think 188-189cm at least.
twat said on 14/Mar/13
look at the film couch trip,best comparison 59.04. enough said,probably 5ft 6 max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/13
Cage 183-184cm, Cusack 188-189cm
joe joe said on 19/Jan/13
@dani he is alot taller than cage. seen them side by side and he has at least 2 inches on him
BEASTMAN said on 22/Oct/12
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m says on 6/Jan/12
If he's claimed both 6" 2 and 6" 2.5, maybe a 6" 2.25 (1.89 m) listing is fair? Same as how Robbins is listed as 1.95 m, halfway between his claims of 6" 4.5 and 6" 5.

Agreed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/12
Based on what he's said...
6ft2.75(190cm) out of bed
6ft2.5(189cm) morning
6ft2.5(189cm) lunchtime
6ft2.25(189cm) afternoon
6ft2.25(189cm) evening
6ft2(188cm) night

He's claimed 6ft2 and 6ft2.5. Between those two figures seems reasonable.
Silent d said on 1/Oct/12
I've seen him in a few movies. I remember he was in this movie with billy bob thronton and he was about ten cm taller. Forgot the name of the movie. In conair next to nicolas cage, he looked 187cm. 6 foot 2 is about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/12
I think Cusack is 188-189cm range.
dani said on 7/Jun/12
He is 1.84m barefoot. He height is as similar to nicolos cage who is 6'
