Just re-saw a majority of Walk the Line on TV...despite a passing resemblance, Phoenix is just not physically right for the role due to the size difference, not to mention his vocal range, although I am impressed by his efforts. The Cash character should be an imposing, somewhat lumbering, bass-voiced guy but is not there, Phoenix is clearly a bit under most of the other male actors.

Well, he sounded tall.

Sue, you're just angry about the song Cash sang about you :=) Cash's brother claimed Johnny was 6'3" in the book "I Still Miss Someone". He obviously wasn't quite that tall but Johnny was unusually tall for his family from family photos in Cash books I have, towering over his siblings and father. On the other hand, Johnny looked around an inch shorter than preacher Billy Graham in photos, though whether Graham was 6'2" (as he's commonly listed online) or more than that, I'm not sure.

Saw him in an airport one time and he was short! There is no way he was 6 ft.

Clearly the tallest in a line-up also including Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis. Guessing the other's heights from these photos, Perkins= 6'0.75"; Orbison & Lewis= 5'10.5"-5'11". BTW, everyone's hairstyles but Lewis looks like they're wearing a dead animal on their head...

He was big. I'm 6'0", and I met him in a bar and he was at least 6'1" or 6'2". And he was big as well as tall. He went at least 230, and probably 260

@jms yeah I had to look that up, but found yet another picture of another driver's licences of his, with "Tenessee" markings. There Johnny's listed height is not even 6'1" but 6'0"! Something is horribly wrong because I have seen another picture of one of his many driver's licences and it said 6'2" which I find to be the most correct. I have no doubt that Johnny was a true 6'2" man in real life.

On an episode of Pawn Stars someone sells his license and his listed height is 6' 1"

"height is 6 ft 1.75 in (187cm)"
Claimed 6"1.5 and 6"2 and usually looked both

I wouldn't recommend the Johnny Cash "diet" of living off of amphetamines! BTW, I would also mention that Johnny got quite heavy in his post-drug days, probably well north of 200 pounds (230+)

155 pounds at 6'1.5"? I'm struggling to get down to 190!
