American Actor and stuntman best known for playing Jason Voorhees in Friday 13th movies like Jason X. He said in a chud interview: "I'd like to correct all the information on the internet because it's got me older, it's got me born in Chicago, but it's basically 6'5", 255. Born in Crystal Lake".

Rob, you mentioned it is likely that his chunky boots add 2" - 2.25" of height, yet at 6'1 that would only make him 6'3.25" at max. John Schneider is 6'3, and with shoes (even dress shoes add a tad bit of height), he would likely be in the 6'3 to 6'3.5 range, perhaps taller. How is it possible for Kane to appear so near, if not AT, 6'4 in his big boots, if they only add 2 inches to his 6'1 height?
[Editor Rob: in person Schneider appears taller than Hodder to me.
The boots when blown up larger do look quite significant. How much advantage he has is debatable. It could be John has 0.8in shoes and Hodder's give 2.3, I don't know what model or if it's a custom boot Hodder wears Click Here]

I think 6ft2˝-3 range peak is fair. At that height it's possible to clear 6ft4 in boots and I think he could possibly fool people into thinking he was 6ft5.

How is he shrinking so much.
TRINACRIA said on 4/Jul/15
I saw him yesterday (friday 03 june) at the Montreal Comiccon. I'm 1m84 cms and he was more or less (a bit shorter I'd say) the same height despite big boots. I was wearing those shoes : Click Here
[Editor Rob: he's shrinking every year...]
Jim Hopper said on 19/Jun/15
Without boots 6-1" max!! Why wear those dumb shoes???
[Editor Rob: he just likes being a bit taller really.

Looks a good 6'4 here next to 6'3 John Schneider.

Of course, we can't see what his footwear looks like.
[Editor Rob: he isn't taller than John, here is Footwear...he's in his big boots he wears a lot.]

I watched Jason X, it seemed to me 6'2.5 or 6'2.75.
Rancor said on 25/May/15
I'm 6'4 and met him today at a convention. He was the exact same height as me, though he had on monster boots. I buy your 6'1 estimate.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/15
Wow...imagine him claiming 6ft5 today.
Charon540 said on 23/Apr/15
185 cm seems spot on
His posture is going really bad
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/15
Rob, could he be heading toward 184cm now even?
[Editor Rob: in next 5 years I'm sure he'll be heading there.]
Onrey96 said on 8/Apr/15
6' 2" to the max
shivaya said on 29/Mar/15
i think he is a solid 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/15
"Peak height was 6ft 2žin (190cm)"

Rob, is it possible that he thinks that he was 6ft5 and that he's currently 6ft3˝?
[Editor Rob: I think height loss is definite with him, how much though...I mean last year I saw him a few times and he had at least an inch more footwear but really didn't look more than 6ft 2 at the absolute most, take off advantage and I can't buy him more than 6ft 1 barefoot.]
Gonzalez said on 14/Mar/15
There were two options about his height: 6'2.5" (189 cm), 6'3.5" (192 cm). Maybe in big shoes but barefoot he's no more than 6'1". The best Jason Voorhees all time.
Onrey96 said on 10/Mar/15
He looked pretty tall in hatchet
Onrey96 said on 7/Mar/15
6' 3" not 6' or 6' 1" don't know where you guys get that from
[Editor Rob: from seeing him up close.

Not a chance he's 6ft 3. He has lost height though, I'm sure.
Alex 6'0 said on 25/Jan/15
Rob, when was this pic taken? 6'2.5 peak is very possible. 6'2.5 in pretty big boots he'll def looks 6'4-6'5 range in Friday the 13th movies. This picture he looks no more than 6'1.
merf said on 8/Jan/15
Just watch "killer xtras"on f13th ult edition dvd collection.whatch secrets behind the gore.u can tell kane is standing on a box behind the bench to appear taller.look at kanes full body castings.they look petite.he wears gloves all the time too.why?little hands!!thats why ted white was the best jason.for one thing he actully is 6'4"
ice said on 30/Nov/14
Damn this guy is 6'1 and claims 6'3.5 ?! Ridicilous
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Nov/14
I can believe he was 6ft4 in boots as Jason Voorhees
Danimal said on 22/Oct/14
Check out the boots Hodder wears to conventions/interviews. This is from last year. Those babies look 3" easily. He must be compensating for his height loss. Especially next to a legit tall guy like C.J. Graham:
Danimal said on 19/Oct/14
Finally found the video of A Current Affair where they do a profile on Kane Hodder!!! At 3:15 they say he is 6'3" and 215 pounds. Remember, this was 25 years ago (1989). He DID get heavier in the next few years, but I do believe that 25 years ago, he WAS close to 6'3". Here's the video:
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/14
He doesn't look very healthy
mId said on 10/Oct/14
Part 1: Was just a kid.

Part 2: ~5'11 if memory serves me right.

Part 3: 6'3

Part 4: 6'3-6'4

Part 5: 6'1(Listed 6'2, but is shorter than Harold Raimis when stuntdoubling.)

Part 6: 6'3(Get's listed 6'4 but I'm not so sure.. Don't look it on screen.)

Part 7-JasonX: ~6'1(Wears big boots as Jason.. Even as himself :p Was deemed to short to play Jason in the Freddy Vs Jason movie.)

Freddy Vs Jason: 6'5 or over.

Reboot: 6'5. Could be little over also.. Don't remember exactly.
miko said on 8/Sep/14
Maybe at his prime of 6'2/6'2.5 he measured himself in boots and just went with that.

He has obviously taken a battering over the years and lost quite a bit.
SaveUsY2J said on 16/Jul/14
It's possible, like Ben Affleck, that he measured 6'3.5 in shoes at his peak and that's where his claim comes from.
Mathew said on 25/Jun/14
6'2.5" peak sounds good. I certainly don't think he was the 6'3.5" - 6'4" range, let alone 6'5".
Mathew said on 23/Jun/14
6'1" today. I would guess he was 6'2" peak, although 6'2.5" isn't impossible either.
[Editor Rob: you can tell with this guy's back that today he's lost a good chunk of height.]
Alex 6'0 said on 28/May/14
The Jason character was billed as 6'3 and always looked 6'3 or taller in the movies even when Hodder wasn't playing him. Other Jason actors were 6'3-6'4 range as well. Hodder Id say between 6'2 and 6'3 peak and today 6'1
Elias said on 20/May/14
Rob why do you downgrade him ? 6ft1.5 (187 cm) seems correct
[Editor Rob: the guy is shrinking more]
176,2Tunman said on 18/Feb/14
Funny pic,Rob.LOL,imagine that he saw your listing, he would probably have killed you
[Editor Rob: he's doing a con later this year, I don't know if it's worth getting another photo, maybe I'd strangle him!]
kyuss said on 14/Feb/14
6-1 peak. now 6-0 or bit under. 6-5 is retarded to even say that height.
Lorne said on 4/Feb/14
Well 6ft3.5, that is far less ridiculous then 6'5...
mId said on 20/Dec/13
I agree with Ali Baba.. Plus, I Think he's been 6' all along.. atleast not over 6'1.. he was wearing BIG heels as Jason(as seen in the arsenio hall interview when he walks up the steps) and even then didn't look that tall.. not in the Movies either. Looked 6' with Chris penn in 'best of the best' too.
Mathew said on 10/Nov/13
About 6'2" peak, 6'1" today.
Ali Baba said on 4/Nov/13
If he's wearing those ridiculous boots he likes to wear in the picture with Rob he probably closer to 6'0" than 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/13
He could pass for your dad, Rob.
Brad said on 31/Oct/13
He was chucking it up last night on Coast To Coast. The guy is 6' 1" not 6' 5" his resume job height. He got canned from Jason vs Freddy when the producers did test shots with Englund and hired a legit 6' 5.5" actor. Look at the Mears & Mane shot by him, he's getting blown out by a legit 6' 5"er. Wears chunky height enhancing boots at every convention. Said he was stunting on Emergency & Franciscus' Hunter shows....... um, his age is wrong too, Universal doesn't hire teens for stunting.
The Creeper said on 28/Oct/13
Met Kane Hodder this past weekend at Spooky Empire. He was wearing thick soled boots. I'd say the listing here is accurate for what Hodder may be barefoot. 6'1appx.
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 26/Oct/13
6ft 5 what?? not even in a pair of dons!
Kyuss said on 1/Aug/13
no idea of peak height but now 6-1" max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/13
He could appear 6ft3-6ft4 range in the 80s.
I think 6ft2.75in/190cm peak is possible.

Today is a solid 187cm
196 cm said on 25/Jul/13
im solid 6'5 and Ive seen him , he was a lot shorter than me . How he was able to claim 6'5 is beyond me . He appears taller than he is because he wears really thick healed boots
Emil said on 12/Jul/13
I think he was reffering to Jason Vorhees height. A 6'2.5 should not have a complex
Lorne said on 19/Jun/13
Wow... 189cm peak claiming 6'5? I hope to god he was Referencing Jason...
josh said on 3/Jun/13
yeah 6'1 - 6'1 1/2
jimmy said on 23/Apr/13
Lol I think that even Robert Downey Junior would be jealous of this guy's shoes.How much do you think they add to barefoot height Rob? 2"-2.25"?
[Editor Rob: that range is likely]
Tommo said on 14/Apr/13
Not sure if it's me being thick but surely his description up there is him joking around and describing Jason Vorhees? Crystal Lake is the lake from the movies...

He didn't look that tall in best of the best. looks about 6' in that. Chris penn who's the other guy in this scene looked around 5'10-11 when doing a Movie with don the dragon wilson(5'11-6')
ice said on 13/Mar/13
actually he looks like 6 feet here
Mathew said on 25/Jan/13
I think he is about 6'1" today. He's 57 and with his career in stunts, I can buy that he's lost a bit of height. I can buy a 188 cm - possibly 189 cm peak height. So I'm fine with as listed, but I very much doubt he was ever any taller barefoot.
Ice said on 2/Dec/12
6'5 is laughable . This listing is correct.
Chameleon said on 26/Oct/12
on an i-m-d-b threat about this guy, people say he was 5'11 - 6'0 standing next to him where he also had elevator shoes on they said. Interesting really. 1 of those guys also said Russel Crowe is 5'10 standing next to him on level ground. My estimate of him is 6' - 6'1 after watching Wishmaster. But 6ft max? Its not like I would be suprised as actors lie and this guy wears some huge shoes but ye 6'1 max is my estimate peak.
luck said on 17/Sep/12
This guy goes to my gym I see him all the time, didn't realize he was a stuntman. With shoes on at the gym I'm almost 6'3, more like 6'2 barefoot and he is clearly shorter than me by at least 1.5 inches maybe more. Good LIsting
gsbr said on 7/Sep/12
I know this has been mentioned before, but Hodder was likely referring to the Jason character as when he said he was 6'5'', not himself. In an Arrow in the Head interview, Hodder said he was 6'3'' and a half.
Derek D said on 2/Sep/12
He looks like he would be around 5'11 ish if he wasn't in those huge boots next to Derek and Mane. How did he ever claim 6'5?
Chameleon said on 19/Aug/12
In Wishmaster he looked 6'1 with 6'1 Andrew Divoff, and that was back in 1997.
Mathew said on 19/Aug/12
My guess would be peak 6'2.25" and an inch shorter today. Not much more than 6'1" now as the photos prove.
jtm said on 12/Aug/12
yeah can't believe he is listed at that height. even nowadays he is at least 6'1.
Andrzej said on 14/Jun/12
movie data base says very precise 5'10.75 thats 180 cm. surely they are hursh.
Cobain said on 11/Feb/12
I thought you had a ponytail Rob, then I realised it's Kane's fingers.
Chameleon said on 8/Feb/12
Rob in Wishmaster he is the exact same height as Andrew Divoff, he is 6'1 needs a downgrade.
aaron1337 said on 1/Feb/12
What do you think about these photos Rob? Here is Kane Hodder next to 6ft5 Derek Mears and 6ft8 Tyler Mane. He doesn't even look 6ft2 next to them. Besides compare the heel size of Hodder's shoes with the other two.

Here is Hodder with 6ft3 listed CJ Graham, Hodder has probably his big heeled boots on:

[Editor Rob: maybe he is nearer 6ft 1 today, those were basically the kind of boots he had when I saw him.

it is possible he has lost height over the last 20 years. ]
nice guy said on 30/Jan/12
I dont get it why does a tall guy like him need to lie like this? - I mean i get it pitt, diesel, sly and all the others need to lie since they're all below 5'11 - but that dude here? damn he is a solid 6'1 and yet he claims 6'5 lol..
Chameleon said on 28/Jan/12
Hes 6´1
Sasha said on 25/Jan/12
Rob and Kane stand too slouchy to estimate the height properly. But from this picture I got the 5" height difference. So Kane is 6'1", maybe 6'1.25". Unless Kane holds Rob in the air. :)
