@Wilton176: Have you even seen any of this guy's movies? Or any photographs of him whatsoever? There's not a chance in hell he was under 6'2 peak. If he was 6'0 then an overwhelming amount of heights on here are overlisted.

If he got measured at 6 foot, that's what he was. Seriously guys, it's a slim chance the army messed up the measurement that much. It's no good saying "oh, but he's the same height as X who also claims 6'2" or whatever - because the statistical fact is that MOST guys give an overstated height, especially celebrities.

Seriously it is sooo easy for a 6' guy to get away with 6'2. I see it in the real world all the time.

Hi, i would like to answer to Martin who says that Goodman is taller than Bill Muray. I was at Monuments men's premiere in Paris, where the lead cast was present. I am 5'11 and John, standing at less than 4 meters away from me hardly looked above average, maybe 6 feet in bulky shoes! I was quite surprised, remembering him as a 6'2 guy!

Bill Muray on the other hand still manages to look like a strong 6'1.5

By the way Dujardin is close to 5'11 and Matt Damon is under 5'10 for sure, probably 5'9.5

Also, Carpenter's The Thing was a marvellous movie (a remake), Scorsese's the Departed was terrific (a remake), and David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was amazing (another remake). So there are innumerable exceptions to your steadfast rule.

If you don't believe me, check out the Rotten Tomatoes percentage for 'True Grit' - a review aggregator site. It has an astonishingly high rating up in the 90s I believe. It was a critical darling - it received universally positive write-ups from reviewers.

That's absurd, Jake. I do respect the Coen Brothers and I love their work. But remakes usually have horrific outcomes.
Martin says on 2/Mar/14
Goodman can't be 6' today. Just saw him on french TV, he was obviously taller than Bill Murray...
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m says on 19/Feb/14
Actually critical consensus would suggest that the fantastic Coen Brothers' True Grit remake outdid the John Wayne original.

Definitely taller than Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski.

"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

Easily looked that range in the 80s-90s. Nowadays his height is kinda hard to gauge. He can look barely 6ft at times and other times still near 6ft2. But, the 5ft11 talk for Bridges is garbage. He was still at least 3in taller than Matt Damon a few years ago in that horrible True Grit remake.

I thought Goodman looked near 6'1 in Inside Llewyn Davis.

LOL @ 5'11" for Jeff Bridges.
Gacy says on 18/Jan/14
Goodman is 6'0" nowadays, he looks 1 inch taller then 5'11" Jeff Bridges. Goodman never looked like he was 6'2".

I saw at least 6'2 If not closer to 6'3 on roseanne
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Dec/13
189cm peak is a good shout. He did look a bit over 6ft2 in his Roseanne days and if Jeff Bridges was still 186-187cm in 1997 aged 48 while filming The Big Lebowski.

Silent D, I think he's gone up again. It's worrying considering how his good ol buddy Jim Gandolfini turned out. But then again he's made it past 60...
Sam says on 3/Oct/13
Don't believe it...I've seen both Goodman and Bridges in person, though not on equal footing with myself. Both guys gave a 6'0"-6'1" impression and were clearly shorter than 6'4" T-Bone Burnett.
Goose says on 30/Sep/13
Seen both Bridges and Goodman in person; good 6'3... Believe it.....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/Sep/13
Gandolfini was only 51, Rob. I doubt he lost anything.
I'll admit that Goodman looked 184cm max with Affleck.
But with Denzel Washington in Flight looked 186-187cm

6ft1 today is still fair.
Jordan says on 5/Sep/13
Rob here is Goodman with Gandolfini. Both Look exactly the same height more or less. Gandolfini is pictured in a sopranos mug shot at 6'0.5 ( likely with his shoes on). I think Gando and Goodman are both 6 feet tall.

[Editor Rob: I think James was the kind of guy who lost a fraction in height by his latter years]

Correction: He could look 6'1 range in some pics with Ben Affleck.
cole says on 20/Aug/13
He looked like a tall man in his early films, 6'2 range. But these days he looks like a 6 footer, especially next to Ben Affleck. They don't measure wrong at a physical do they, so maybe he remembered being 6'2 and the thought of losing height just didn't accur to him. Accounting for his age alone, it's strange that he's lost this much height, but he is a big man, so it makes a bit more sense.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Aug/13
Peak height: 6ft2.25in/189cm
Current height: 6ft1.5in/187cm

I have a hard time believing he lost 1in+.
Lenad is sexy says on 15/Jul/13
looked every bit of 6'2 on roseanne
Tee says on 20/Jun/13
He was pretty tall in his prime. Big guy, at least the size of the average football player. Towers over most people on Roseanne. Now he looks like he's lost a lot of height. Still a 6 footer possibly.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 15/Mar/13
Could be 6ft 0.75in but I doubt he's shorter than that.
BigUkrainianMike says on 12/Mar/13
At certain angles he looked like 6ft3 but I would say 6ft2 when he was younger now he is in his mid 60s or something so he might have shrunk a little so 6ft1 sounds about right
James says on 22/Feb/13
6'2.5 peak and 6'1 today.
Nick says on 20/Dec/12
He's barely taller than 5'10" Bryan Cranston in the few pics I've seen with them. 6'0" tops for Goodman.
Larry A says on 8/Dec/12
I saw him in the early 90's filming My Blue Heaven in my office building. DEFINITELY over 6'2'' at that time; probably closer to 6'3
James says on 11/Nov/12
Looks 5'11 next too Ben afflick
RobertJ says on 22/Oct/12
Not 6'1'' anymore. Here he is next to Ben Affleck recently who has at least an inch on him.

I watched The Big Lebowski recently on Showtime and Goodman appeared to be a good 1-2 inches taller than Jeff Bridges. (Who I think is around 6'1.5") So I would have guessed him to be between 6'2.5" to 6'3".
Jason says on 17/Aug/12
Looks taller than Clint Eastwood in the previews I saw of him and Clint in a new movie coming out.
SIlent d says on 25/Jan/12
He looks bigger than 185cm. 189cm maybe but 185cm nowadays is right.
