Kane Hodder's height is 6ft 1in (185 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189 cm)
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". In a JoBlo interview he also said "like 6'3" and half.". On his ImdbResume he put down 6ft 4 (no half inches I guess) and 230 pounds. This photo is from a 2008 London Expo.

Here he is with 6'3 Dwayne Johnson, and appears a tad taller, likely due to a footwear advantage.
Ice said on 20/Oct/15
So this guy stands a ( comperably to other horror stuntmen) pretty merre 6'1 , and once claimed a massive 6'5 like Kirzinger ? This is ridicilous . He also wears massive lifting boots , like does he think nobody will notice that ?
bugs said on 14/Oct/15
Rob at 1:48 he is next to 196 cm Ken Kirtzinger who played the cook in that movie,and he looks only 186 cm
The film was made in 1989, so his peak was only 186? Click Here
[Editor Rob: it's such a small encounter that it can be hard to say if it was more than 3 like nearly 4...considering his boots were probably thick.]

Check out the beginning of this video! You get a clear shot of his boots. What do you think, Rob?
[Editor Rob: comfortably in 2-inch range, I believe these are the type of boots also 'big G' wears now.]
Maximus said on 22/Sep/15
I just got some Logger boots, and they have around a 2.25" heel and are nowhere near as large as Hodder's. I think you may be right in that he wears a custom boot, as I've searched online for it and can't seem to find any information on it. It really seems to be around a 3" heel. Notice how big the front of the boot is too, in comparison with the back. My logger boots don't have nearly as big a sole on the front. If they do add 3", that would explain why in some photos he appears taller than some 6'3 guys such as Schneider - or near the same height as Tony Todd in a few photos I've seen - and then look so tiny next to Tyler Mane. Some of the pictures of his boots seem to be smaller than others - not sure if this is a camera trick or if he in fact has multiple boots of varying heel heights. Would also explain why some supposedly 6'4 guys on here claim he's the same or near height, whereas some smaller guys also make the claim.

6ft4˝(194cm) in boots = 6ft5 claim

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?


Hodder's boots definitely add some solid height. He can appear 6'2" - 6'3" in them from time to time in photos but take them off and there's no way he's gonna be much more than 6'1", if that. In his heyday he was probably somewhere around 6'2" (give or take a half inch). I could buy up to (but not over) 6'2.5" but I wouldn't be completely shocked if it turned out he's never even been more than 6'1.5" either. Needless to say, he's lost at least a little bit of height over the years and he wears massive boots that can make him look taller.

[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]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
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.
Journey said on 9/Jul/15
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.
Matthew said on 18/Jun/15

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.

[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. :)
Alex said on 23/Aug/07
6'2 250lbs sounds accurate for Kane I think.
Ed said on 20/Aug/07
Kane just made a movie about Ed Gein where he plays the real life killer. It's kind of funny though considering Gein was a short little stocky old man who liked to wear plaid and those hats with the ear flaps, and then you have Kane looking like a mountain man lumberjack in the role. He's a big dude no doubt, and he walks around in an apron with no shirt and you can just how large he is. He's not ripped, but built like a powerlifter. 250lbs without a doubt, and he did look 6ft3ish in the boots he was wearing in the film!

On another note the guy has got one creepy mad dog stare, that's for sure. When he looks into the camera at times he appears like he's going to come through and strangle you, lol! In the majority of the film he barely talks but just stares at people, and it's pretty freaky. All I could picture was Jason though, because he kills people just like him in the flick not like what Gein did at all!
Alex said on 19/Aug/07
Ed, thats what Kane looked to me then. I haven't seen him in a while. Maybe he lost weight or something but def looked a good 240-250lbs when he was Jason. Whether or not he was 6'2-6'3 or in between he still looked around 250lbs.
Ed said on 18/Aug/07
Alex, I agree 6ft2( maybe 6ft2.5)and 250lbs sounds like a very realistic estimate! He's just too big to weigh much less, at least now a days.
Alex said on 17/Aug/07
Kane has gotta be closer to 250lbs. When he looked that when he was Jason. He's probably really 6'2-6'2.5. I don't think he's as short as 6'1.
Viper said on 12/Aug/07
He looked taller than the Rock I thought in a couple of those pics. But yeah he could have had a footwear advantage.
Ed said on 9/Aug/07
Danimal if he's 6ft3, then so be it! It's not that I want him to be less, I've just always been suspicious of the monstrous footwear for such an obviously large man. I don't get it? Your between 6ft1.5 and 6ft3 barefoot, big as a house, and yet you wear huge heeled shoes. Not to mention his height is up and down all the time. He looked the same height as The Rock(6ft2.5), but I'd be willing to bet he was wearing his 2 inch boots and the Rock was wearing normal footwear or even sandals based on the clothes he was wearing in the pic.
Danimal said on 9/Aug/07
Ed, it seems like you don't want him to be 6'3". Can't we just sometimes accept the height that is given, without dissecting it to this extent. As I said, he may only be 6'2" and change and rounded up. I'm willing to live with that. Cool?
Ed said on 8/Aug/07
Danimal, I agree he did look quite tall on the beach, but I don't know how tall is wife is and she could be very short for all we know. The funny thing is did you notice his shoes on the beach, they looked quite large as well. Like giant high tops with big heels! I wonder how much lift he got out of those? Another thing is if you've ever seen Wishmaster, Hodder has a small role as a security guard who meets an untimely end with the DJinn(Andrew Divoff/6ft1). There's not much of a difference between the two maybe an inch or so in Hodder's favor, and you can view the clip on youtube. I stumbled across it after looking at the clip you found.

While wearing his boots he could have been near 6ft5 in his youth, now a days he's not looking much bigger than in the 6ft3 plus range. I agree he's a big dude regardless! What puzzles me is if he was 6ft3 in his youth, what's with the big heeled lift boots he's wearing all the friggin time? 6ft3 is pretty damn tall, especially when he's a big musclebound guy as well. That I don't get?
Danimal said on 8/Aug/07
Ed, Lou has gone through all kinds of stages of development over the years.
Kane saying he is 6'5" is obviously with his shoes on. His BOOTS I should say.
He did look 6'3" while walking on the beach with his wife. He was a tall man. Again, he could be 6'2" and change and just rounded it up to 6'3". Either way, 6'2"-6'3", he is still a large man.
Jason said on 8/Aug/07
Yeah, I would agree 230. The chopping his legs off was rather overstating things lol.
Ed said on 8/Aug/07
I can't see 215lbs and 6ft3 in the video segment at all. Hodder's looking a good 230 in that clip, and as for Ferrigno he was ripped like hell, not beefy like a lumberjack the way Hodder's always been. In the above pic with Glenn he looks around 6ft3ish, but that's with his big boots(near 2 inches in heel). Hodder might have been near 6ft3 in his youth, I still think he was less and the fact he's also quoted above as saying he's 6ft5 255lbs doesn't lend much credibility.
Jason said on 8/Aug/07
I assumed the 215 comment is in recent times. There's no way he's only 215 at 6'3'' in the above photos unless someone chopped his legs off.
Danimal said on 8/Aug/07
Oh come on Jason. Stop doing that. You have no conception of bodyweight. He could have been lean as anything and weighed 215 pounds at 6'3". Lou Ferrigno went down to 220 pounds at 6'4"+ in the 1980's and still looked muscular.

This man was 6'3" or damn close to it at his peak. In fact, I remember reading in an old Fangoria magazine from the late 1980's that he was 6'3" and 240 pounds.
Jason said on 8/Aug/07
If he's 215 then whoever said he might be in the 6'1'' range must be right.
Ed said on 7/Aug/07
Danimal, I agree it's hard to make out. At first it does sound like 250, but then I realized as well it's 215. Still 215 sounds way too light for him! I'm curious when he switched from saying 6ft3 215lbs, to 6ft5 255 lbs in the quote above under his bio. That's a bit of a jump, lol!
Danimal said on 7/Aug/07
Ed, at first I heard 6'3" 250 pounds and then I relistened and he said 215 pounds. He looked a good 30-40 pounds more than that, but obviously not. The interviewer clearly got those stats from the horses own mouth. Now we know that he was NEVER taller than 6'3" and is probably only around 6'2" today.
Ed said on 7/Aug/07
There's nothling like mullets and raquetball, lmao! Good find Danimal!

At 6ft3 though and 215lbs wouldn't Kane be a lot skinnier? I'd say more like 230-240lbs, he was definitely the thinnest I've ever seen him but he was still pretty big!
Danimal said on 7/Aug/07
6'3" 6'3" 6'3" 6'3" 6'3" 6'3" 6'3" 6'3"

He was wide in person too yet I'm holding my own there too.
Viper said on 10/Jun/07
I want that leather coat that Batista is wearing. Lock you are right though he does look like a roasted turkey on steroids. hillarious
Alex said on 9/Jun/07
She's another female wrestler and hot yes. This was kinda of a waste of money though as my other wrestler pictures came out better and were more enjoyable. I was going to stand in the picture but I would have probably been cut out so I had to crouch. And with all the other ones I met I at least talked to them a bit.
There was someone on line who was saying Batista is 6'5 and I was like no he's really more 6'3. Also someone on line said they saw Batista walk in to the table so if I stayed down by the table a little longer before getting on line I would have had Batista walk right by me and get a very good height estimate, damn. He did look at least 280lbs though for sure.
l0ck n l0ad said on 8/Jun/07
Haha, nice pose Alex ! Batista looks like a roasted turkey on steroids next to you. Is that his wife there?? She looks pretty hot!
He should have really at least smiled or put his arm on you, or any sort of friendly gesture, at least his wife pulled a smile there, she looks quite warm and friendly.
I can guarantee if you told him you're bigger he'd get off his fat ass and stand like a rooster with his chest pumped out hhahahhaha, there's nothing to fear even if you would manage to piss him off he's not gonna lay a pinkie on you in a crowd of people starring at him, despite his 'tough guy' attitude over there. Maybe he refused to stand up because he knew he's not going to look as tall as 6'5" - 6'6" like his fans would think he is?
Alex said on 8/Jun/07
Lock, when I was there I was thinking to myself that I should have told Batista that I was more biggger than him and maybe he would have gotten up! LOL
But I got the picture on my computer as I posted it on the Batista page but I'll post it here again.

l0ck n l0ad said on 8/Jun/07
Yeah what's up with Batista he acts no better than a grumpy bulldog with his fans, thank god I'm not one of them. Does he realise that his fans are the most important for his career? or perhaps it's his strategy, being hostile with them, yeah that should make them really like you...
Triple H is doing great with fans, seems like a nice guy outside the ring.
Is it possible to get a photo next to Sharapova after a match or practice while she's still in trainers? otherwise it's no good when she's out on the town with mega heels.
Btw I'm a major sloucher next to shorter guys, as if I'm guilty for being taller than them. Next to 6'3" and taller guys I'm nearly walking on my tiptoes lol. I thought Nike Shox were good too, till I got my boots (similar to military ones), give a solid 4cm and they look alright, not too comfortable for the summer, but works very well for the winter.
Alex said on 7/Jun/07
I'd love to get a picture with those guys and Sharapova. I actually got one with Batista but he's sitting though. I was going to get him to stand but the line was pretty big and they seemd like they wanted to hurry so I figured he wouldn't stand, plus he looked pissed off.
l0ck n l0ad said on 7/Jun/07
Viper, I would gladly send you off to photograph with Hodder, The Rock, HHH, Batista, Edge :-) oh yeah... and Sharapova too... she's starting to annoy me with commentators calling her 6'3".
Alex said on 6/Jun/07
Viper, at 6'3 standing straight you'll def appear even a bit taller. I have a friend who is about 6'5 1/2 and if he stands straight he is pretty tall but sometimes can appear more 6'4 or so with bad posture. In Nike Shox type sneakers he looks his tallest, thats why he told me he likes to wear very thin heeled sneakers.
Viper said on 6/Jun/07
I usually stand with good posture in photos.
Alex said on 6/Jun/07
Danimal, exactly look at the picture with me and Kurt Angle where he is leaning a bit and took an inch away from him.
Danimal said on 6/Jun/07
I remember at my 10 year High School reunion in the Fall of 2005, I took a picture with tons of people and I was shocked to see how I matched up in height to guys who had a good half a foot on me in height school. I took a pic with 6'8" Greg and I was hoping to see a good 10-10.5" difference in height between the 2 of us, but he had bent his knees and leaned down and was barely taller than me in the pic. It depends if the guy wants to make you feel like his equal, or YUP, make you feel short (inferior). It can go either way I suppose.
Danimal said on 6/Jun/07
But even a slight lean can take off 1-2" Rob.
Ed said on 6/Jun/07
Alex, I agree it just depends on the person. I also stand up straight, as much as I possibly can. Some taller guys slouch because of self esteem issues, or because they just want to fit in the frame in a photo op. If the person they're taking a photo with is considerably shorter, they might hunch over out of deference for the shorter person. But, some people would stand up straight regardless, and not care in the least if they made the other guy look like a hobbit.
Alex said on 6/Jun/07
Some tall guys like 6'4 don't slouch for crap, even with short guys. Some guys just love to stand straight.
Danimal said on 5/Jun/07
I see a flaw in that Rob. The 6'2"-6'4" guy would have to slouch so not to make the celebrities feel bad about their height, as most tall guys slouch with 5'7"-5'8" Glenn. A 6'0" guy would solve a lot of problems. A LOT.

[Editor Rob: yeah, only if the tall guy stands straight, although I know a few at cons who don't bend down or slouch in that range, the celebs usually stand tall.]
Alex said on 5/Jun/07
I'm 6'0.5 and no matter who I'm with in pictures or just in general I'll normally stand pretty proper and straight.
Alex said on 5/Jun/07
Ed, yea even a guy 6'2-6'4 would be good to get pictures with celebrities.

[Editor Rob: very true, especially if guys like that stand normally, far more often the celebrity won't be slouching you can bet...I see it at every photoshoot I've been at really, if a 6ft 3 guy comes along, practically all the celeb men would stand decent if the tall guy doesn't slouch down.]
Ed said on 5/Jun/07
LOck n LOad, I mentioned once before the same thing regarding the closer you are to one's height the better judge you are. This site would be lacking severely without the eyewitness accounts and pics of Rob and Glenn, but it wouldn't be a bad thing to have a 6ft autograph dealer like Glenn to provide some reference as well. Both are go to eyewitnesses are 5ft8, so a taller one would be interesting to have give accounts of in person meetings, and as a gauge to measure height against.
As for my judgement I'm as reliable as most I guess, I'm pretty positive I screw up from time to time.
Alex, maybe Kane was taller in his youth and has lost a few over the years. I just know I saw him a lot shorter than the 6ft5 listing he originally had and claimed. He looked 6ft3ish to me in his boots, and that's all I know.

[Editor Rob: undoubtedly a 6ft guy could get more pics where celebs in the 5ft 11 - 6ft 2 range stood better and also give good estimates because of lesser problems with posture or eye levels..]
Alex said on 4/Jun/07
Ed, I can accept Kane as low as 6'2 now, but I think he was probably 6'3 when he was younger.
Lee said on 3/Jun/07
This guy doesn't look 6'5 to me. I'm 6'5.5 and he isn't close to me.
l0ck n l0ad said on 3/Jun/07
Ed, don't worry mate I'm no less obsessed with height than you are. What would be a better (minimum requirement) height without being ridiculously good for making it to the pros, 6'3" - 6'4" ?

I tend to believe your testimony, I don't think you'd make it up. The question is now can we trust your height judgement? I would say yes, usually people obsessed with height can guess quite accurately people's height in person unlike the average person who always tell me I'm 6'3" when I'm an inch shorter.

Maybe Hodder was 6'3" peak, I don't see him over 6'2" right now. I still wonder how come Glenn saw him at 6'3", Rob at 6'2.5" and you saw him at 6'3.5" with his boots. I think the closer you are to the person's height (assuming you know your true height), the easier it is to judge.
Ed said on 1/Jun/07
LOck n LOad I think your referring to me. The obsession over height was a reference to me being a kid and playing basketball, and I desperately wanted to be taller. However,when I stopped growing I ended up at 5ft11.75 out of bed and that was not gonna take me too the pros(unless I was ridiculously good!).

As for Hodder, I grew up watching the Friday movies and thought Hodder was massively tall in those days. By the time Part 9 came out, and I saw the scene where he's out of his Jason costume and playing a SWAT officer, I was shocked to see how much shorter he looked. When I saw him at a convention a few years ago, I was wearing skecher type shoes if I remember correctly, which would put me at anywhere between 6ft0.5-6ft0.75 maybe. Hodder seemed to be only 6ft3plus while wearing his boots. I didn't see him walking around a lot, it was for a split second as I approached the table and he sat down. As I stood at the table, and after I walked away I kept checking out the boots and was blown away by their size. I looked up pics of him online and at the Friday the 13th website forum, and saw a lot of comments by people who had met and felt his boots were what contributed to his intimidating stature. They are really thick soles, but not heels. I don't know though anymore about his height, it's impossible to tell accurately with those boots. Maybe he's 6ft2, possibly shorter perhaps.
Alex said on 1/Jun/07
I do rememeber that picture as Rock was a bit shorter than Kane but in reality could be the same height since Kane could have had on bigger footwear than Rock. Either way I'm can't see Kane under 6'2. 6'3 at his peak though.
Danimal said on 31/May/07
Viper, The Rock isn't as low as 6'1".
Viper said on 31/May/07
Well, The Rock looks 6-1 next to him If hes 6-2 and no more.
l0ck n l0ad said on 31/May/07
Alright Rob & Glenn, thanks for your perspectives, points well taken into consideration for both pictures. I admit it's hard to gauge over 1/2" difference when he doesn't have a full-on posture and you're not certainly sure how much exactley his footwear advantage over you is. I'll keep in mind he could be 6'2-1/2" or towards 6'3", although as for the moment with Rob's latest pic I got a good hunch that he's a flat 6'2".
Btw I could swear there was on the bottom of the page a few days ago a post with a guy claiming to be very obsessed with height and good on judging people's height and when met Hodder, he estiamted him at 6'3.5" with his large boots on and estimated him at 6'1-1/2" to 6'1-3/4" barefoot. I wanted to talk to that guy but I can't find it, perhaps it got lost due to newer posts overwriting the older ones or something like that?
Alex said on 31/May/07
Also Kane Hodder is in his 50's and could have shrunk an inch easily. He may have been 6'3 at his tallest and now today only 6'2 but I don't buy him under 6'2 though even though with Rob he does look even shorter.
glenn said on 31/May/07
its a are deceiving.see the angle im in too? he is pushing me down too.what gets me is that nobodys notices the position he is standing in,in robs pic? and mine? he could be straighter in robs pic if he positioned himself differently.he still has a lean in mine.but the pushing down shoulder and me on an angle doesnt other words,in laymans terms,we need to stand like rob is in the photo.without the head tilt.
l0ck n l0ad said on 30/May/07
Rob, thanks for the great picture with the explanation, it says it all. I'm almost certain now he's nothing over 6'2". As long as you're not on your tiptoes and he's not bending his knees he looks 6'2" max and this after taking into account he's not standing full as possible. You guys might think I'm delusional lol, but as 6'2" guy, growing up with a 5'8" mother I know very well how I match up against 5'8" with all the family photos.

[Editor Rob: tiptoes are reserved for Hayden Christensen's of this world.]
Alex said on 30/May/07
We are unsure if Kane had big boots on or normal sized footwear with Rob.
He looks 1-2 inches taller with Glenn than with Rob though.

[Editor Rob: nah, not normal, they do look similar to the one on his site under fans were he's sitting down with one guy, whether it is proper 2 inch sole is what I wouldn't be certain of. If I ever find somebody posting a pic from his talk that day, I'd be more certain if seeing them sideon.]
Kevin said on 30/May/07
is this jason ? omg he almost kill you rob!
Danimal said on 30/May/07
Actually, it appears as though Rob is taller than Glenn, because Glenn some out a lower point on Kane's eyes than Rob does (about 1-1.5" I'd say).
Ed said on 30/May/07
Rob, that's weird because Kane looks all of 5-6inches taller with his boots in that pic of you both. He does not look like a 6ft4.5 in man(albeit in boots)in that pic, rather around 6ft2plus?

[Editor Rob: as I say, I too estimated near 6ft 3 he looked, I had 1.08 inches on and he has at least 1/2 inch advantage, 3/4 likeliest, its hard to see exactly if they were full 2 inches he had, could be overcut a bit, or who knows, he could have brazilian insoles.

of course he isn't as full as possible, but then I was losing a little bit by tilting my head trying to relieve the vice like grip of terror he had over me! Any moment he might have gone berserk!]
the shredder said on 30/May/07
This proves that Glenn and Rob are just about the same height !!!!
Alex said on 29/May/07
Kane could be as short as 6'2 barefoot but I highly doubt anything less though. His boots are big but to be under 6'2 he'd need 4-5 inch lifts to look 6'5.
glenn said on 28/May/07
he had heels,but they were thick.
Ed said on 28/May/07
Thanks Rob, I've finally been vindicated. You've seen them in person and can attest to their size. Kane's boots are no joke.
Alex said on 28/May/07
Rob, Kane's boots give easily 2 inches of height I think, maybe 2.5 inches.
The 6'5 is probably in those boots so 6'2.5 could be right but I doubt any lower. Also we don't know if he had huge boots with Glenn or standard shoes.
Glenn did you take a look at his boots?
glenn said on 28/May/07
good work rob.he did looks 6-5 to me in never occured to me about footwear.then,i wasnt into height.
Editor Rob said on 28/May/07
I'd been curious about this guy on seeing glenn's pic, so did make a wee trip as he was at an event over here at the weekend (also couple 24 folk were there and that's one of my fave shows).
As others say, those boots are pretty thick set beasts, they could be pushing 2 inches maybe.
He did look near 6ft 3, but with those boots I think he might be closer to 6ft 2 than 3. 6ft 5 claim was always the stuff of nonsenseville.
Alex said on 12/May/07
I also met Briana Banks at a strip club in early 2004 but it was jammed packed so me and my friend got a picture with her, said a few words and had to leave since the line was that big. With Jenna Haze it wasn't packed at all, around 10-12 people there and I was there talking to her for at least 10 minutes before I left. Really nice girl. Those adult film stars are some of the nicest celebs you're going to meet.
Viper said on 11/May/07
Thats awesome :)
Alex said on 11/May/07
I'm not kidding, seriously. Not VERY erotic but the 2nd and 3rd picture she was in some nice positions. In the first picture she was grabbing me though. And she signed them with some dirty words. Not going to get into that though.
Viper said on 10/May/07
You gotts be kidding me
Alex said on 10/May/07
I took 3 pictures with her. One is a height comparison one so maybe I'll post it but she doens't have a page and all but I'll think about it. The other 2 photos are a a bit more erotic. LOL
Viper said on 9/May/07
Didnt realize Jenna Haze was a porn star.
Alex said on 9/May/07
Ed, yea. She's amazing. Her stats are only 5'2 92lbs and she is a little smaller in person than on TV, but she looked her stats though. TV gives her a bit of weight. When I first saw her she could have passed for a 15 year old girl.
Ed said on 8/May/07
Alex, I googled Jenna Haze and now I know why you anted up, lol!!
Alex said on 8/May/07
Rob, do you know why we can't link w i k i p e d i a and i m d b pages?

[Editor Rob: just tinyurl links to there]
Alex said on 7/May/07
Taking the lean into account then Gilette looks a 6'0 guy.
Danimal said on 6/May/07
I don't agree with you Alex. Gilette looks at least 4-5" on Glenn and Gilette is leaning into Glenn.
Alex said on 6/May/07
Gillete only played Jason in the window scene at the end of Part 2. He could have been 6'0-6'1 but with Glenn he doesn't look over 6'0 at all. Steve Dash played Jason for 99% of the movie and he looked 5'10-5'11 in the movie.
S.J said on 6/May/07
How tall is Warrington gillete like 6? also he only played jason Unmasked or something and it was his stuntman who did all the masked stuff
and do they know who will be jason in the Friday the 13th Remake
Danimal said on 4/May/07
Viper, The Rock isn't a flat 6'1". Please man! He's close to 6'2" and Kane Hodder is slightly taller than that. Quite possibly 6'3", or just under (imo).
Alex said on 4/May/07
Ed, I'm not sure why I cant link something from those 2 sites.
Ed said on 4/May/07
Alex, I forgot to bring that up as well. Just the mere mention of it or i m d b wouldn't got through!
Alex said on 3/May/07
Rob, why can't a link anything from w i k i p e d i a to this site. It says its an unreliable source and the post won't go through. Any idea why? I had to space it since it won't even go through if I spell it out.
Alex said on 3/May/07
Ed, I'll link you a picture of her or something to this page. And I will end up scanning the pics with me and her and maybe send 1 or 2 just to show you. Funny but nice pics though. She's only 5'2 95lbs too but hot!
Ed said on 3/May/07
Alex, there were quite a few Playmates and hot chicks from the wrestling world! I'm not sure who Jenna Haze is, but if she looks like some of the other girls taking pics and signing autographs that I saw, I completely understand.
Yeah, that would be hilarious to ask Kane for a photo than tell him we both need to go barefoot! I'd pay to see someone else try that, lol! The guy is a little on the large side, I don't need to get my neck broken by Jason Voorhees!
Alex said on 2/May/07
Ed, yea if you see him again try to get a picture with him. Maybe tell him to take the boots off and you both go barefoot for the picture. haha
6'2 barefoot and 6'4-6'4.5 in boots I think could very well be the truth.
$20 a picture isn't always worth it, depends who you meet and how they act and stuff. Almost all the pictures I got with wrestlers were worth it other than with Batista and Melina. I got a few with Jenna Haze if you know who she is and I'll tell you they were worth the money for sure!
Ed said on 2/May/07
Alex, I don't know how big exactly the boots are, and I agree with Rob that the "lifts" explanation doesn't apply to every celeb with a questionable height. But, with Hodder these boots are no joke. The sole does look to be close to 2 inches, and maybe there's a bit of an insole. I could see him getting 2.25-2.5in maybe in boost. If he's 6ft2, this would put him at 6ft4 comfortably. If he ever comes to another one of those conventions near me, I'll try to get a pic with him, but I'm not crazy about spending $20. That's the crappy thing about conventions, the ridiculous money being charged for autographs and pics. The only one time I ever did it was my first time to a convention, and it was Peter Mayhew(Chewbacca) and he wouldn't even stand up from behind the table to take a pic with me. After I dropped $20 on a stupid autograph, I had to lean across the table for a crappy photo!
Viper, Kane could be 6ft1 but then I would only say he would be 6ft3.25-6ft3.5 in his boots. He does only look about 6ft3ish in the Glenn pic, but he isn't standing up perfectly straight.
Viper said on 2/May/07
Kane could be as short as 6-1, I wouldnt rule that out.
Alex said on 1/May/07
Ed, I could believe Hodder at 6'2 barefoot and 6'4.5 in boots. 3 inch boots will result in about 2.5 inches of height given right or just 2 inches?
Ed said on 1/May/07
Viper if that's the case on August 26, 2006 you said you saw the boots, thought they were huge and that he was most likely 6ft1.5. You also said you saw the Rock as 6ft2. On Sept 7, 2006 you thought Kane was 6ft1. I'm not trying to call you out, more so just trying to figure out where you stand on Hodder's height. He can't be 6ft1 barefoot and 6ft5 in boots. The boots are big, but not that big. I honestly see him at near 6ft2 barefoot and around 6ft4 with the boots.
I personally see The Rock at near 6ft3 barefoot. Maybe 6ft2.5, and 6ft3.5-6ft4 with shoes/boots. Considering that, this would make sense with Hodder looking around 6ft4 w/boots, and about 6ft2 w/out. Hodder is the only other guy I've seen with boots that rival Vin Diesel. Well maybe Tom Cruise, lol!
Viper said on 1/May/07
Of course
Ed said on 1/May/07
Viper, were you formally Viper652?
Ed said on 30/Apr/07
All I know is when I saw him he wore the boots, when Glenn saw him he wore the boots, in every photo from a convention I've seen online he has the boots on, and from fans from the Official Friday the 13th Website his boots have been brought up and discussed before, so there's a good chance he had them on w/The Rock. I read comments on there from numerous fan encounters who remarked about the boots and his height. Some even went so far to spectulate he's only 6ft w/out them. I won't go so low as that number, but I could seriously see 6ft1.5-6ft2 barefoot. I think the boots have a good 2plus inch increase. There built up soles like moon boots not heels like cowboy boots. The height increase is distributed across the whole sole of the boot.
As for door frames in boats, I'm pretty sure they are considerably smaller than the average U.S. 6ft8 door frame.
My question still is why would you drop a guy that is near 6ft4 w/boots(albeit height enhancing boots) for a movie and say he's not tall enough! I know Ronny Yu the director for FVJ wanted a super tall guy like 6ft8, but calling near 6ft4 small is kinda funny!
Viper said on 30/Apr/07
Yep, we dont know If Kane was wearing his boots. Could have been regular shoes.
Alex said on 30/Apr/07
I remember a few pics of Rock and Kane and they looked pretty much the same. Kane may have been a smidge taller but we don't know if Kane was wearing his big boots there or not.
Ed said on 30/Apr/07
Viper he looked the same and yes a little taller in some pics with the Rock. But, I highly doubt the Rock has boots like Kane. If he was 6ft4 with those boots on and about 6ft2 barefoot, that would still make The Rock 6ft3 barefoot with normal shoes on!
Viper said on 30/Apr/07
Well, he also looked taller than the Rock in a couple of pics. Guess that makes the Rock a flat 6-1 :)
Ed said on 29/Apr/07
Don't forget Kirzinger stood in for Kane several times in Part 8. That's why Jason's height looks all over the place. I won't go as low as 6ft1, but I'd say 6ft1.5-6ft2 tops with 2 inches maybe more in boot height. Did you guys ever notice how in Part 7-10 they always use extreme angles with Kane, cameras looking from the ground up, constantly trying to make him look even taller.
He's not short by any means, but look at the pic with Glenn he looks 6ft3ish in that pic, and that's with his boots. The same boots I've been going on and on about for a long time now. Glenn saw them, they are flatter across the bottom not like a biker boot but like a moon boot. They are REALLY thick in the soles, at least 2 inches.
Alex said on 29/Apr/07
Viper, remember the scene in Jason takes Manhattan in the ship where the Asian girl Kelly Hu finds her friend dead then she runs into the hallway and Jason is standing there and is head looks to appear almost scraping the ceiling. Kane was a good 6'5 in boots I think. Now it depends on how big his boots were. He would have need 4+ inch boots to only be 6'1, thats why I think he's at least 6'2 barefoot. Its possibly he was 6'3 and had 2 inches of height added to his boots, or 6'2 with 3 inches added.
Viper said on 27/Apr/07
Alex, Kane wore HUGE boots though. I have to figure he was 6-5 or close to it. He looked it.
Alex said on 27/Apr/07
Well the guy who played him in part 2 was 5'11 I believe. Part 3 was 6'3, part 4 was 6'4, part 6 was 6'3. Then Kane played him in parts 7,8,9, and 10 and Kane's height is debatable from 6'2-6'3 but I lean more toward 6'3 though. Then in Freddy vs Jason he was played by 6'5.5 Ken who was over 6'7 in his boots.

My opinion for an actor in a movie to play Jason he needs to be 6'2 bare minimum. 6'5 at the tallest plus boots. The ideal Jason I say would be 6'4 barefoot and with big boots he's 6'6. With him weighing at least 225-230lbs.
Viper said on 26/Apr/07
I always see the the bigger zombie like Jason at 6-5, and more human one 6-3. Looked 6-0 tops in part 2.
Alex said on 25/Apr/07
If you go to house or they have some of the killers stats.
Jason- 6'3 250lbs
Myers- 6'0 200lbs
Leatherface- 6'3 300lbs

These are the stats based on the character not really the actor since the actors have changed for these men. Myers was played by Wilbur who is 6'2 240lbs or something.
Alex said on 25/Apr/07
Jason X wasn't bad but I didn't think it was very good either. Pretty decent I'll give it since I'm a fan of the series. Jason Takes Manhattan I liked though. You wanna talk bad, watch part 5 with that imposter. I hate that part. Jason was more scarier in parts 2,3 and 4 when he was more human but was still good in 6-9 as the more bigger, badder zombie like Jason too. I didn't like the cyber Jason really. I thought Jason looked good in Jason X before he turned into his robotic form.
Viper said on 20/Apr/07
As ridiculous as Jason Takes Manhattan is, its still 10000 times more beleivable than Jason 10, plus its just flat out more entertaining. Ed, I agree that Jason was his scariest in 3 and 4. He was a badass like in the later sequels except he was more human.
Ed said on 20/Apr/07
These movies were great when I was a kid, but they are pretty awful now. They're still fun to watch every once in a while w/certain movies excluded. My personal favorites are 3 and 4 where Jason has the mask and is still human, which is far scarier then an invincible retarded zombie! Vegas, the uber Jason in Jason X was pretty cool looking, but before he changed into it he looked kind of lame. Alex, I gotta disagree on the topic of Myers' strength. He progressively got stronger,ie. lifting people up by a scalpel by part 2. By the time George Wilbur took over in 4, Myers had grown several inches and put on a good 30-45lbs in bulk. He was like Michael Myers the lineman. With Tyler Mane as Myers at 6ft8 and I believe he's listed at 270, this will be the most physically intimidating movie killer to date!
Vegas said on 20/Apr/07
I liked Jason X, the metal Jason was cool.
Viper said on 19/Apr/07
Part 2 is pretty damn good overall, even though I still hate that sack over Jasons head, and the overalls. But the guy was just starting out, give him a break :) Jason X was AWFUL. Just awful. For the simple fact that it had Jason on a ship in space? I like all of them in their own way except for part 10. The first one is obviously a classic, even though Jason isnt even in it. Part 3 probably had the scariest and creepiest Jason of all actually. That one scene where hes up in the attic and looks out the window without the mask and showing his messed up face is an unbeleivable scene in a horror movie to me. If I was a little kid who saw that scene it would give me nightmares for a decade.
glenn said on 19/Apr/07
i totally disagree and older fans would too.part 2 for starts was the best and creepiest of the series.and jason was the most human and realistic in that one.he getting superhuman even in part 3.not that i have a problem with that.the best were the first 3.slowly downhill from there.but still good movies in my book.
Alex said on 18/Apr/07
Oh, Jason X was ok, not bad but wasn't the best. Jason goes to hell could have been better if he was in his body the whole time. That made the movie worse.

I'm a big fan of the Friday the 13th series. I like all the Jason's but the one from part 2 would be my least favorite. Now thats counting the real Jasons because the one from part 5, that imposter sucked and I hated that film a lot. Jason in 3 and 4 was good, but then the slower one is parts 6 and up were good too. I like both, but he was more human but very strong too in the earlier parts until part 6 where he became a super strong zombie. Jason got stronger as the parts went on unlike Myers who was always very strong but maintained his strenght I believe.
Ed said on 13/Apr/07
There's a clip on youtube that's pretty funny of Kane/Jason on the Arsenio Hall show years ago. It's the first time I could really get a good look at the boots he wore for Jason in a brightly lit setting. They have a good 2 inch heel like cowboy boots, but are designed more like construction boots. The heel is very pronounced, kind of like the boots you would see in the old Darth Vader costume. He looked to have about 4 inches on the 5ft11 Hall.
Editor Rob said on 7/Apr/07
Speaking of Jason (sack on head), I never knew who this guy was at first, but I was taking a pic with someone and this guy called Steve Dash offered to take it since I was doing it myself but I said nah, I'm ok. Only when I looked at his table later did I realise who it was, I just thought it was some random assistant.

So, in effect I told 'The real jason' I don't need you taking my pic :p Although he did comment as I was lining it up saying 'I can see it (on viewscreen), your in frame good job' or something to that effect.
Viper said on 11/Mar/07
I like both types for Jason. The only Jason I didnt really like was from Part 2 with the overalls and the sack on his head. Jason 10 should have never been made though. Jason in space? Crazy. Makes Jason Takes Manhattan seem pretty normal. I really liked that sequel actually.
Ed said on 10/Mar/07
I agree Viper, did you see See No Evil w/Kane? He's got the right physicality to play Jason, and even though he didn't talk much in the film(Thank God Jason doesn't talk,lol)he did a fairly good job, and was def. intimidating. On another note, you like slow moving zombies, that's cool, but what about Jason. Do you like the slow Kane/Ken style Jason, who lumbers along, or the faster more frenzied Jason ala Brooker or Ted White. I prefer faster, just seems more realistic and creepy.
Viper said on 10/Mar/07
The wrestler Kane? Though I think hes more 6-7, but close enough.
Ed said on 9/Mar/07
So Viper, you say a 6ft8 Jason would be cool, who do you think would be a good candidate?
Viper said on 1/Mar/07
Ed, I actually prefer the slow moving zombies are the fast ones.
Ed said on 28/Feb/07
Alex, the reason I'd like to see a 6ft8 Jason is because IMO Jason should'nt look comparable to anybody else, he should stand out. In several of the movies he was matched pretty evenly or has someone taller than him,ie. Kirzinger in Part 8. When Jason isn't the biggest guy anymore he's less intimidating. With Myers, he's supposed to be average, or a little taller than most, but able to blend in and hide. Jason is kind of like Jaws, huge and unstoppable, where Myers is all about subtlety. For that reason I'm surprised Zombie picked somebody so huge to play Myers, anything subtle kind of goes out the window when your killer is 6ft8 and ripped like a bodybuilder. I wonder if Zombie is gonna have shots of Myers in the Smith's Grove Sanitarium juicing up and doing bench presses and squats, LOL. I see what your saying about Ken, my complaint though for him wasn't the height but his Frankenstein movements, for once I'd like to see these movie killers move fast like what Boyle did w/28 Days Later. Zombies sprinting are far more terrifying, than the boring, staggering, moaning kind. Maybe Zombie will have Myers move a little faster this time, especially since he's been reading Muscle and Fitness during his years locked up.
Alex said on 28/Feb/07
I think a 6'8 Jason is kinda dumb. Thats too tall. I think 6'3-6'4 then plus boots it the ideal Jason IMO. Ken was on the edge of being too tall and was actually a bit too tall though. But if Mane is 6'8, 6'9 or 6'10 its still the tallest main horror characters though.

I wouldn't be bad to play Myers, I'm 6'0.5 and 200lbs, a little too light for Jason though even though I got good size.
Ed said on 27/Feb/07
S.J, Mane has been downgraded here from 6ft10 to 6ft8, regardless he's still the tallest lead actor to play one of the main horror movie icons. After Mane at 6ft8 would come Kirzinger at 6ft5.5 and Tony Todd at 6ft5. As for the actual heights of the characters, I believe Jason and Leatherface are neck and neck for tallest Horror characters. Myers is described in the books as tall and lean around 6ft-6ft1. Jason and Leatherface are more hulking and menacing at 6ft3-6ft5. On the fangoria website they have the first pics of Mane as Myers, and though he looks tall, he doesn't look massive like I thought, granted when he's standing next to the 5ft Danielle Harris I'm sure all that will change. The pic is pretty creepy though, it's given me a lot more faith in Zombie's vision. I agree Viper I'd like to see a 6ft8 Jason, I'd vote for the Friday remake that's in the works to have either Kane(not Hodder, but See No Evil)play Jason, or Bryniarski even though he's 6ft5, he was awesome as Leatherface, and would make a great Jason. Apparently, since Platinum Dunes, who made the TCM movies is behind the new Friday flick, Bryniarski is a frontrunner, especially since TCM:the Beginning's director Liebsman is directing it. Alex, I'm pretty sure I read in Fangoria, that Ken stated he was about 6ft7 or more w/ the huge boots he wore.
Viper said on 25/Feb/07
A 6-8 Jason would be badass.
S.J said on 24/Feb/07
Is Michael Myers Really 6,6-6,10 ???
i thought Jason Voorhees was Possibly the Tallest Movie Serial Killer
Or Leatherface who is also about 6,3 or 6,4
Alex said on 11/Feb/07
Ed, Ken could easily pass for 6'7 or more in Freddy vs Jason. 6'5-6'5.5 in his boots you get over 6'7 easy.
Glenn said on 11/Feb/07
Ed-your right about the heels,but thick soles.
Ed said on 10/Feb/07
Alex, all the other Jason's do look a lot leaner next to Kane's Jason. Especially from Part7-10, in which Jason got progressively stockier. CJ, interestingly enough was pretty built too, but for some reason doesn't come across like Kane, and Ken is a big dude too, but he doesn't seem to have that powerlifter build like Hodder either. It's funny how Jason went from a 5ft11 guy in a burlap sack mask, to a near 6ft7 behemoth in a hockey mask. Hodder just brought so much more physical prescence to the role than any other Jason before him, it's kind of the same thing as Bryniarski as Leatherface.
Alex said on 10/Feb/07
White and Booker looked pretty built to me, 225lbs-250lbs each, but I know what you mean, they were leaner than Kane was.
Ed said on 10/Feb/07
Alex, I don't know what I was talking about in regards to CJ. He did look pretty tall, about 6ft3-6ft4. I think I was thinking about Part 5's Jason. Still Brooker and White came across taller I'm sure due to their skinnier builds. As regards to Kane I still don't think he's a full 6ft3 due to his boots. Maybe Glenn, you can let me know what the boots looked like that you saw, compared to the one's I described that I saw in person and have always seen him in pics. In the pic above w/Glenn Kane looks like if he stood straight he'd be about 6 inches taller, putting him at around 6ft2 barefoot. But if you take into account his boots, which Glenn said didn't have heels, and that tracks w/ what I'm saying because the ones I saw were just really thick soles, then Kane could be getting close to 2 inches from them.
Alex said on 8/Feb/07
Ed, in Part 6 CJ looked pretty tall if you ask me. Remember the scene with the sheriff toward the end, he just towered over Garris. Before I read he was 6'3 I thought he was like 6'5. Warrington Gillete 6'1 tops, likely only 6'0. Steve Dash didn't look anymore than 5'11 to me in that movie.
Ed said on 8/Feb/07
Alex, the Jason's in Part 2 were the shortest, from what I remember they were 6ft tops. It's funny I didn't think CJ looked that big in Part 6, more like 6f1ish, it wasn't until I saw pics of him later did I realize how tall he is. I remember when I first saw Part 7 I thought Kane was like 6ft6 or more, he looked huge in that movie, but it wasn't until Part9 when I saw him as the Swat officer in relation to Richard Gant, that I was shocked to see the difference. If you watch those films again you'll see they use a lot of distorted camera angles looking upwards from a lower vantage point. It definitley adds to the height of Kane's Jason. In pretty much Part 7-Part 10, they do alot of this with scenes where Jason will be standing behind a soon to be victim, and they pan up at him, making him loom even larger over his target. I don't know when you last saw Part 9, but if you get a chance check it out, I'm interested to see if you think he looks significantly shorter as a Swat officer than as Jason.
Alex said on 8/Feb/07
Ed, in Part 2 those 2 guys were def the shortest Jason characters. I could see Gillette at 6'1 but its possible he's only 6'0 but I doubt any lower than that. It wasn't until part 3 where you had the taller guys like Brooker who was 6'3 then Ted White who was 6'4 then CJ at 6'3 and Kane who's height is debatable from 6'1.5-6'3 then you had the tallest with Ken at 6'5, possible 6'5.5 as he listed at that in some places as well.
Alex said on 8/Feb/07
Glenn, you're right. Thats what I was saying. The guy who played Jason in part 2 was Steve Dash who didn't look 6'0 or more. 5'11ish I'd give him. Long time ago I thought Warrington played Jason in part 2 and I was like this Jason doesn't look 6'1 as Warrington is listed. So yes its very possible Dash is 5'11, maybe even a bit shorter.
Viper said on 8/Feb/07
Glenn, are you talking about Jason with the sack over his head?
Glenn said on 8/Feb/07
I couldve sworn there was a 5-10ish Jason in part 2.guess thats 5-11ish Dash.
Alex said on 7/Feb/07
Actually Warrington only played Jason in part 2 in the last scene where he comes through the window. The other guy was Steve Dash who's height I'm unsure of. He looked 5'11-6'0 at least which is really the absolute bare minimum height Jason should be.
Ed said on 7/Feb/07
Glenn, you say Kane had boots on, but no to heels. Did his boots sound like the ones I described, thick soles that are flatter on the bottom like a logger boot? I'm not talking heels like a cowboy boot, but an overall thickness, the ones he wears in almost every pic of him on his site. As for Gilette he looks about 4 inches taller than you, but if you're about 5ft9 w/shoes on that would make him 6ft1 w/shoes, and if he had heels like you say, does that mean big heels like cowboy boots, cause that would knock him down to about 5ft11/5ft11.5 barefoot.
Glenn said on 7/Feb/07
Warrington had heels on too.and told me 6-1.
Alex said on 7/Feb/07
Warrington looks only 5'11 with you Glenn, unless he's leaning and then would be 6'0ish. He could have shrunk. Friday the 13th part 2 was made 26-27 years ago.
Glenn said on 7/Feb/07
Cool Rob.
Editor Rob said on 7/Feb/07
Glenn, I put your Warrington picture on this page.
Viper said on 6/Feb/07
For a Jason movie that didnt even take place at the camp, Jason Takes Manhattan is underrated. That movie is just a fun guilty pleasure. And Kane is a badass in it.
Alex said on 5/Feb/07
Ed, remember in Jason takes Manhattan in the ship where he is going to kill the chinese girl Lucy Lui and she is in the hall and looks up it and he is standing there. His head looks pretty close to that ceiling. He looked 6'5 or more in boots, that or the ceiling was that short.
Glenn said on 5/Feb/07
Alex-I thought the guy through the window was Tom Savini? Ed-I didnt realise Sabertooth was that tall.then again I never paid attention to part 2 or even saw part 3.Halloween is a retelling that isnt a remake,is the whole point Zombie is trying to make.
Ed said on 5/Feb/07
Glenn, Tyler Mane was Sabretooth in X-Men, he was also in Troy and The Devil's Rejects. IMO, I've always thought Myers should be 6ft2 no more, tall enough to be bigger than most and intimidating without being monster size like Jason or Leatherface. Myer's is all about being cunning and hiding in the shadows. How do you hide a 6ft10 guy? We'll have to wait and see what Zombie's vision is, anything can't be worse than part 8 with kung fu Busta Rhymes, what a bunch of crap that movie was! Alex, George Wilbur, Don Shanks, Chris Durand, and Brad Loree all played Myers and are all about 6ft2, some maybe a bit more than others. Apparently Richard Brooker played Myers in a couple scenes in Part 4, so the tallest Myers would be him I guess at 6ft3. Alex, if Ken is 6ft5.5, and was probably w/shoes about 6ft6.5 to 6ft7, than Kane had to have been about 6ft3.5 to 6ft4 in his Jason boots.If Ken is only 6ft5, and 6ft6 w/shoes, than Kane would have been only 6ft3 in his boots, if there was only 2 inches between them, then 6ft4.
Alex said on 5/Feb/07
Ed, Ken did look 3 inches taller than Kane in Jason Takes Manhattan I do remember. At least 2 inches minimum. Tyler Mane as Myers I didn't hear about, if so its dumb if you ask me. 6'10 is way too tall for Myers. The Myers character is billed at 6'0-6'1 so really the actor should be 6'0-6'2. I believe someone 6'4 played Myers in 1 or 2 films.

Glenn, Gillette was 6'0-6'1. But there were 2 guys who played Jason in part 2 though, one guy throughout the whole movie and the other only came through the window at the end. Well the guy who played him in almost the whole movie looked 6'0ish. He was def the shortest Jason of them all but still tall.
Glenn said on 4/Feb/07
I met Gunnar in 1989.appeared 6-3.I never met the others you mentioned.I dont know who Tyler Mane is.he is 6-10? wasnt Myers character 6-1?
Ed said on 4/Feb/07
Glenn,it would be interesting if you ever meet CJ Graham or Ken Kirzinger to let us know what the comparison to Kane would be. I've seen pics of Kane and CJ together but they were a little skewed. CJ's listed at 6ft3, and IMO looks taller than Kane,but you've seen so many of these guys you'd be the better judge. As for Kirzinger the guy absolutely towers over people in FVJ like no other Jason before. He looked to be a solid 3 or more inches taller than Kane and that was in regular shoes in Part 8, not the Frankenstein boots he wore in FVJ. One more thing Glenn, have you ever met Andrew Bryniarski,Gunnar Hansen, or George Wilbur before? It would be interesting to have your comparisons on all the major horror icons out there today. Did you guys know that Tyler Mane is the new Michael Myers in Rob Zombie's Halloween, what do you think about a 6ft10 MM?
Derek said on 3/Feb/07
If he stands straight, he'll be around 6'3".
Glenn said on 3/Feb/07
Warrington Gillette(Jason part 2) was at the next table and I dont remember why,but mentioned Kane was his height.when I asked Warringtom how tall he was,he said 6-1.I then remarked Kane was 6-3,6-4.I shouldve pulled the 2 of them in the photo,but I was afraid of being charged and how Kane would react.
Alex said on 3/Feb/07
Ed, like Rob said his stance could have him lose a bit of height, plus like I said his head isn't even straight up so just by looking at the picture Kane looks 6'1, but he straightens up a little more you get a solid 6'2. He could have been 6'3 back then and lost a bit of height.
Ed said on 3/Feb/07
Good pic Glenn, when I saw Kane, Ferrigno was there too, and to me Ferrigno was taller than Hodder, and I would only have put Ferrigno at 6ft4 tops w, his cross-trainers on, so just about 6ft3 for him barefoot. I saw Kane at about 6ft3ish like you say, but w/ his boots. Now, the boots I saw had huge thick soles on them without defined heels,kind of like logger boots but flat on the bottom, and upon further inspection they are the ones I see on his feet in pretty much every pic I've ever seen of him. Maybe the guy is pushing 6ft2, but that's still all I remember, if I ever see an add for him at a convention I'll check it out again. One last note, when I saw him he was just about to sit down behind his table, and I caught him before he did for a second standing up. I was expecting 6ft5 or more, since that was what he was listed at and claimed in interviews, nad looked in all the Friday films. I could be wrong and he was 6ft4 in his boots and not standing up perfectly straight, but I don't recall it that way. Regardless of his exact height, Hodder is still a big intimidating looking guy.
Glenn said on 3/Feb/07
He is bending alot.Im stick straight.he did seem,yes,heels,no.
Alex said on 2/Feb/07
Glenn, nice picture. How tall did Kane look to you? Its about time someonne posted a picture with him because we were debating where he was anywhere from 6'1 to 6'3. Well he doesn't look more than 6'2 there with you. I'd give him a legit 6'2 though based on that picture thats if you take into consideration his head isn't straight up.

[Editor Rob: hodder might have loose posture.

sometimes figuring out how much a stance can lose is tricky. Glenn, you have recollection of the size of his shoes/boots?]

I believe most doors are 6'8 in modern houses but like I said my house is older so the doorways are 6'5-6'6. Rob what about at your house, how tall are the doorways there?

[Editor Rob: 6ft 6.5]

The doors in my house are range from 6'5-6'6, one is 6'7. My house is on the older side is why. Most doorways are 6'8.
S.J said on 1/Jan/07
Alex Some Doors are 190cm
Alex said on 22/Dec/06
Kane Hodder and The Rock looked about the same height in a few pictures posted. I guess Kane wasn't in his big boots at that time. Playing Jason he looks 6'5 in boots, his head comes is almost up to doorways in the movies but also back then the doorways may be shorter, it depends. If kane is 6'2 then he'd need 3.5 inch heels to hit 6'5. His boots I bet give him 2-2.5 inches to his barefoot height, or maybe a bit more.
SJ said on 19/Dec/06
in the Movie of Part 6 i thought he lookes tall i always thought Jason being around 200Cm but its actually 190 but any way it could also be that CJ looks tall becoz it was a Diffrent man playing Jason in the Paintball scene were Jason looks very tall
Ed said on 24/Nov/06
Alex, I've seen pics of CJ Graham and Kane Hodder together, and there's not much of a difference in size between the two heightwise. CJ didn't look as big muscular wise as Kane in the movies at all, but in this pic of them together CJ's actually a pretty big guy, in fact more proportioned than Kane. I'd peg him at 6ft4 or 6ft5 for Part 6, he looked tall and he was not as burly as Kane then making him look taller. He was a pretty good Jason too,and I agree part 5 sucked!
Alex said on 23/Nov/06
Ed, you will agree on this probably. CJ who played Jason in part 6 looked 6'6 in the film or at least 6'5 in the movie. I thought CJ was 6'5 or 6'6 before I read he was really 6'3 but he was at least 6'5 in boots though. Big boots the reason but remember the shot where he was just a few feet away from the Sheriff who looked short himself and it made Jason look taller than he already is.
Danimal said on 23/Nov/06
My fav was 2,3,4. 6 was pretty good too. I actually really liked part 5. Mostly because of the cheesiness and of course the amazing bude tit shots of some hot girls.
Alex said on 23/Nov/06
I acually liked part 8. The worst part was the 5th one with the imposter Jason. Hate that one. Rest of them are good at least. My favorites were 3 and 4 actually. 2,6,7,8 were good too. jason goes to hell could have been better than it was. The whole switching bodies didn't make it as good as it could have been.
Ed said on 22/Nov/06
Viper, Leatherface played by both Bryniarski and Hansen were easily each 250 and I'd guess 275lbs respectively, plus both stated they had additional weight with the costume, the fat suit(not really necessary for Hansen though he was already pretty portly and not muscular like Bryniarski,and thick clunky lift boots. If Bryniarski is 6ft4 or 6ft5, to be his size muscularly he'd have to weight at least 250 lbs. Add the fat suit and costume(heavy butchers apron,clothing, and heavy boots), and I bet he'd be pretty close to 300 lbs. Part 8 is pretty awful, with the best part though being Jason boxing on the roof with the guy whose head he eventually punches off, ridiculous as hell but still hilarious,lol!! Yeah Jason X is horrible, really horrible. Part 9 was decent at parts, but I didn't like the whole supernatural twist. I'll take Part 3 or 4 over all of them, any day.
Danimal said on 22/Nov/06
Thr New Leatherface is the big 6'5" blonde guy who played in The Program and in Higher Learning.
Viper652 said on 22/Nov/06
Leatherface is 300 pounds? Thats hard to beleive. Alex I actually like Jason Takes Manhattan beleive it or not. Though half of it is so damn silly. Jason X should have never been made though. Jason in Space? LOL.
Ed said on 22/Nov/06
Alex, I know the heights aren't for the actors themselves, that's why I said it was a generalization just for fun, but these wanted posters that were made up for entertainment purposes maybe about 5 or 10 years ago were directly influenced by all the movies and the average size of all the actors who played these characters. Sam, Bryniarski does claim 6ft5, and at times he does look pretty close to it ex. The Program and The Texas Chainsaw flicks, but other times he can look smaller like around 6ft3. It would be interesting if someone could find a pic of Kane Hodder, Andrew Bryniarski, Gunnar Hansen, and maybe George Wilbur together to see the various heights of these guys. Of course we still wouldn't know for sure ,based on what would be on their feet.
sam said on 22/Nov/06
The original Leatherface was Gunnar Hansen, a 6'4" guy, who like Ed said wore lifts. Bryniarski claims to be 6'5"...don't know about the other Leatherfaces. 6'3" is probably the standard height for Jason because of Hodder, but I consider Hansen the real Leatherface and he's 6'4".
ed said on 21/Nov/06
Leatherface is 6'3'' too.
Click Here
Alex said on 21/Nov/06
Ed, those listings aren't actually for the actors themselves. Its really based on the character alone on how big they had the character at.

Myers in part 7 and 8 I wasn't crazy for.
Ed said on 21/Nov/06
Yeah LB894, White was good too, I couldn't remember his name earlier. Between him and Brooker, I'd say it's a pretty close tie for the best Jason. Hopefully they'll get someone like those two for the new flick. Alex, I've seen those listings before, and they are defintiely generalized, but that's cool they are just for fun. Michael Myers(Nick Castle in the first Halloween)was by no means 200 lbs, and maybe he was 6ft, but he didn't look much taller than Jamie Lee Curtis. I always thought Michael Myers didn't look tall, until part4 with the 6ft2 George Wilbur, up until then Myers was kind of shorter and skinnier. From there on out they used taller stunt actors, and Myers got bulkier(ex. Don Shanks part 5). As far as Leatherface, I think that one is the most accurate in terms of a general estimate. All the Leatherfaces including Bryniarski have been 6ft3-6ft4, and they were big guys made bigger with lifts and a fat suit.
Alex said on 20/Nov/06
They have Michael Myers listed at 6'0 200lbs and Leatherface as 6'4 300lbs. Jason is listed at 6'3 250lbs for his character but not in every film was the actor around that height/weight though.
LB894 said on 20/Nov/06
I really liked Ted White in Part IV. I thought he had a great physical presence as Jason.
Viper652 said on 20/Nov/06
6-3 and 250 pounds. Jason is pretty much a linebacker.
ed said on 19/Nov/06
Jason Voorhees is estimated at 6'3''.
Click Here
Ed said on 18/Nov/06
No offense to Kane or Ken, but I hope they go with someone new, and someone with the physical proportions of Richard Brooker, 6ft3-6ft4 and not too muscular. Jason should be strong, quick, and agile, not slow and built like a powerlifter. He should be similar to Michael Myers, but taller imho, where Myers is about 6ft2, Jason should be about 6ft4.
Alex said on 17/Nov/06
Ken was almost too tall for Jason. 6'5 isn't a bad height to play Jason but you don't need to wear huge boots then. Ken could have wore low soled boots or something to make him 6'6 in them.

Not sure who should play Jason in the new one. Maybe take someone who has been him before. Kane again maybe?
Viper652 said on 17/Nov/06
The Part 3 Jason does seem the most real and creepy. Makes sense because Jason could actually bleed and he wasnt the monster he was by part 6. The scene where Jason is up in the attic peering out the window is unreal, he looks so ugly and disturbing. I do like the more realistic Michael Myers though.
Ed said on 16/Nov/06
I agree Alex that CJ Graham did a good job as Jason as well, I just find the non zombified Jason to be scarier. I thought Brooker in part 3 was really creepy with his more human like qualities. Viper, I know Jason got more powerful as the movies went, and his size changing makes sense, I just have always preferred a more human killer like Michael Myers in Halloween, not one so farfetched, if you can call anything after the 2nd Halloween realistic,lol. Kane was really good in 7, I just didn't like him so much in 8,9, and X, he started to look too huge, muscular wise, like Jason has done a few cycles in between films. Ken was alright,just too damn slow in an oafish way, although the scene in the beginning with the guy getting folded up in the bed, was about the most brutal thing I've ever seen in a Friday movie. Alex, I remember reading an interview in Fanoria shortly before Freddy vs. Jason came out, and Ken mentioned wearing big lifts for the film, I can't remember if they were 2 or 3 inch lifts though. Who do you guys think should play Jason in the remake they're talking about?
Alex said on 16/Nov/06
Viper, if you saw Freddy vs Jason, what would be your guess on Ken's height in his boots? The guy is without a doubt at least 6'5 barefoot and maybe 6'5.5 as some may say so depending on how big his boots were and I seen them and they looked like a 2 inch heel on the outside and maybe a bit was inside them too.
Alex said on 16/Nov/06
I think CJ Graham did a good job as him. The guy was 6'3 barefoot and between 6'4 and 6'5 in boots but he looked as tall as 6'6 in some parts of the movie.
Viper652 said on 16/Nov/06
Ed, as the Friday movies went Jason became more powerful in every subsequent sequel. He just became superhuman. So its not to farfetched that he grew from 6-0-6-8.
Alex said on 15/Nov/06
Warrington Gillete was his name who played Jason in part 2, but I heard there were 2 actors who played him in that movie. One was him the whole movie and the other did just the window scene at the end. But the one who played him in the whole movie looked 6'0ish so close to 6'2 in boots.
Alex said on 15/Nov/06
Doors vary in height though so I'm never sure on how tall they are exactly. But yea his head was scraping the doorway about.
Ed said on 15/Nov/06
Alex, I think the first guy to play him in part2 was about 6ft(maybe 6ft1 plus with boots),in part3 I think Richard Booker played him, and he was I believe 6ft3(6ft4 plus with boots), one of the best Jasons IMHO. This continued until part 5 and I think the fake Jason in the movie(the ambulance driver) was more like 6ft2(in boots). Part 6 was the 6ft3(6ft4 plus with boots) CJ Graham, and than it was Kane from there at about 6ft4plus(with boots), until Ken who was at least 6ft7.5 in his boots, maybe 6ft8. I agree that a 6ft3 guy is the best height for Jason, he just becomes too over the top and cartoonish if he's as big as an N.B.A. power forward. I hope if they do remake Friday the 13th they get a guy that's tall, but not too tall.

If you look at the part in FVJ where Jason crashes through the door in the mental hospital, Ken looks about even with the doortop. Aren't most doors about 6'7 or 6'8?

Ed, its just if you're 6'5-6'5.5 in your barefeet you really don't need more than 1 inch shoes to wear to play Jason. I think its better for a guy 6'3-6'4 to play Jason and wind up at 6'5 in footwear. Ken was an ok height but they made him wear too much heels. A 1 inch heel or 1.5 inch heel max would be better. 6'0-6'8? not sure about that unless you're counting all footwear. But the the guy who played him in part 2 was 6'0-6'1 then the rest were taller than that. How tall did he look to you in those boots? 6'8 I think. Or 6'7.5.

Alex, yeah I did, and it was pretty hilarious! Between that and the official posters of the two of them standing back to back, I think Ken was made a little too tall for the role. It's funny how Jason went from around 6ft to 6ft8 over the span of all 11 movies. At this continual rate if they don't start the franchise over with a remake soon, they'll be calling Shaq to play him next.

Ed, Ken looked 6'7.5-6'8 in whatever lifts he had so 6'5, maybe 6'5 barefoot so 6'5. Did you see the press conference between Jason and Freddy on the Freddy vs Jason DVD extras? Robert England is 5'9 and Ken had him by damn near a foot in that staredown.
