Next to 6'2'' listed Ryan Reynolds: Click Here
Next to 6'0.25'' listed Robert Pattinson: Click Here
Noticed next to Reynolds he had a considerable footwear disadvantage, at least .5 less shoes I'd say, yet he looks 2.5 - 3in taller than Reynolds who I think is a pretty solid and legit 6'2'' man.
Next to Pattinson I see more than 5in between the two, so like I stated years ago, Durand is a solid 6'5'' range guy, he probably is over 6'6'' morning time so his claim seems honest to me. He could be closer to 6'5'' night time, but I can't see him as a 6'5'' flat guy.

HSom its just a guess of course i can be wrong with up to a couple cm with my guesses. I simply think he looks 196 range band not more than max 197 because i am that height and think he looks about my height maybe 1 cm shorter than me.
HSom said on 30/Mar/17
"he looks more lite 196 and at most 197"
I'm curious how people are able to make these estimates (<1cm apart) without ever even meeting the person.
Especially a man of his height, when a simple inhale and posture fix can easily alter his height several cm.
berta said on 23/Mar/17
yeah if i had to shoose who i believed was taller of him and me i would guess myself
S.J.H said on 6/Feb/17
No he don't even look 197cm. Just a decent 6'5 and might dip a fraction below by lowest
berta said on 21/Nov/16
i wonder if jude really measured him to 199 barefoot? must have been first thing in the mornign but i dont really believe it cause to me he looks more lite 196 and at most 197
Redwing said on 13/Nov/16
You don't really know his height so you should give him what he said he is!
Ice said on 13/Sep/16
was a lot taller than The Rock in Walking Tall ..
S.J.H said on 11/Jul/16
Long ago i had mention he was only 6''5 not over 196cm at most. He claim that about 10year ago. Look at solid 189cm ryan reynolds (lowest) next to durand it look more near 3inch diffrence than 3.5-4inch
Jim said on 11/Jun/16
In the photo with Ryan Reynolds, Durand is wearing converse while Reynolds has a shoe with a noticeable heel. I think it's best to compare him in photos with Boris Kodjoe who is 6'4. He is noticeably taller than Boris so I think anything under 6'6 is ridiculous.
said on 14/May/16
I can tell you officially that Kevin Durand is 6' 6.5" I had to measure him for a physical not long back (I'm a nurse)
Editor Rob: barefoot?
Frank said on 13/Apr/16
Kevin is not 6'6" barefoot, 100% sure.
Probably more around 6'5" is more realistic.
moe said on 19/Jan/16
Saw him at Trader Joe's back in 2012. He was in sandals but he looked 6'6
Len said on 21/Nov/15
Tall guy, no doubt, but 6'6" seems a stretch. You can Google up many a pic of him standing right next to 6'2" Ryan Reynolds, and there's maybe 2" of difference between them.
Probably a 6'4" guy, maybe 6'4.5". Not sure why someone so tall would feel the need to exaggerate (does it get you more parts?), but there you go.
The Dutch Guy said on 24/Oct/15
198cm out of bed height.
196.5cm afternoon height.
194cm night height.
Average between tallest and smallest = 196cm
said on 31/Jul/15
Here's some photos with Durand next to Robert Maillet, listed as 6'9" and damned if he doesn't look 6'6" with Maillet, maybe even 2.5 inches which implies 6'8.5" tops for Maillet.
I was going to comment that he rarely looks particularly tall on The Strain. There's a scene where walks with Roger Cross, Ruta Gedmintas (listed 5'10" on net probably in big heels) and some big dudes and he looked almost a touch over average! I think the staging frequently disadvantages Durand looking as tall as he should with Corey Stoll. In some shots it sure looks like less than 4 inches difference but then (in something like the sewer scenes from S1 finale) it can look near that.
Balrog said on 18/Jul/15
He looked at least 4in taller than Corey Stoll on the Strain. This guy ain't under a solid 6'5" range.
hal said on 24/May/15
6'5.5" sounds right. His muscular frame sometimes makes him look shorter, but he's a solid tall guy. These days, it's like 6'5" is the minimum height to be universally considered solid tall.
Yaspaa said on 19/May/15
I must say, he doesn't look close to 6'6 in Vikings, in fact I would guess no more than 6'4.
tashbeast said on 10/May/15
Definitely a big guy but I don't see 6ft 6. I reckon he's more in the region of 6ft4.5.

S.J.H said on 3/Apr/15
I"ll rule out about 196.5cm and that is why he don't look like a 6ft6(198cm) guy. 6ft5.5 is 1.9685m. Durant look more like a solid 6ft5.25 most of time
Judd said on 23/Dec/14
he's actually a tall actor...one of the tallest in hollywood...between 6'5 and 6'6" is realistic...he towered on ryan reynolds, hugh jackman, liev schreiber and danny houston...
Panda said on 21/Dec/14
Huh this guy looks kind of like Kevin Spacey. A younger, skinnier, and much taller version of course.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Dec/14
Well, I'm not going to argue on the 0.5 downgrade hehe. Most Little John actors are in that 197-8 range it seems.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo and Robin Hood (he was Little John) and Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster. One of those guys who look friendly with hair but really intimidating with the shaved look! Does look a legit 6 ft 6.
Judd said on 3/Dec/14
he had for sure a couple of inches on Paul Bettany, who's for sure 6'3.25-3.5", so 6'5.5" is a realistic guess...
Sean73 said on 2/Dec/14
Durand is currently being considered for the american version of the Ronald Niederman character from The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest sequel.Personally i think J.J. Watt fom the Houston Texans should be considered too.Both in the 6'6" range,but Watt is 290lbs.
dave said on 25/Nov/14
Was on set with him shooting Republic of Doyle. Every bit 6.5 to 6.6 huge in person. Very Nice guy.
said on 28/Oct/14
I buy easly 6'6 (198cm). In the TV series "The strain" he towers over Corey Stoll. If Stoll 186cm than Durand198cm.
Kingi said on 16/Jul/14
The strange thing is that Durand easily looked 6'7" in Wild Hogs though.
Kingi said on 10/Jul/14
I watched Big Momma'S House yesterday and Durand never looked 6'6" in this movie. He gave a 6'3" or 6'4" impression.
184.9 on a bad day said on 5/Jul/14
I watched Legion today and he towering over 6 ft 3-6 ft 3.5 Paul Bettany
Closer to 6ft 6 is fair.
MrTBlack said on 17/Jun/14
I'm gonna say a solid 6'5" maybe 25 cents over 6'5".
joe said on 1/Jun/14
I can't believe there are people here saying he's 6'4 or 6'5. Why would a guy who's 6'4 or 6'5 lie about his height? I thought only people under 6'0 did that. If he says he's 6'6, he has to be 6'6.
Andrea said on 19/May/14
Ahah, there's no guy in the world who claims 6'6 and actually is 6'6 xD
The only guy who i think has to be pretty damn close to 6'6 is Nick Braun, who even tried to say 6'5 but he's clearly taller than that...
Andrea said on 19/May/14
Btw, i saw you have that Scott Speedman guy on here, he claims 6' but he looks a weak 5'10 next to Reynolds, no way he's 5'11 ;)
said on 18/May/14
Rob, considering i do believe Ryan Reynolds is about 6'2, here i see a 5'10, a 6'2 and a 6'3 guy...
Obviously there's no way Kevin is only 6'3, there are other pics where he can look about 2 inches taller than Ryan but never 4 inches... You really think he's a big 6'6 guy? And don't say "he might be a weak 6'6", which is your "standard" answer xD
[Editor Rob: every guy who claims 6ft 6 is a weak 6ft 6...except clive russell! He looked a slightly weak 6ft 6 ;)
It is true he could be in 6ft 5 range, those photos are guys shooting downwards, it might compress heights a bit, but yeah there is a good shout for him to be chopped a bit off.]
moe said on 27/Apr/14
I saw him at Trader Joe's in West Hollywood. I can buy him at 6'6. Very tall guy.
Sam said on 24/Apr/14
I think he's along the lines of Rory McCann, a strong 6'5"er who rounds up. I wouldn't say Rory and Kevin are lying as I bet both guys wake up at 6'6" barefoot. There's probably only a cm or two difference between his height and mine but I wouldn't care to argue the point too forcefully!
jon said on 5/Apr/14
Definitely a legit 6'6". People saying he's shorter than that are probably short or average heights guys who want him to be shorter.
Andrea said on 29/Mar/14
I doubt he's under 6'5, he for sure can look 6'4 sometimes but he's probably 6'5-6'5.5... I still don't buy 6'6, unless it was a morning measurement
Alucard said on 27/Mar/14
6'6 is too much in my opinion, i'd say strong 6'4, very tall and underrated actor...
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/14
Really does look near it in Robin Hood, and an impressive physique to boot. All of the actors who play Little John tend to be in the 6'6" ballpark.
avi said on 14/Jan/14
@Rikashiku says on 20/Nov/13
not towering about 4-5 inches. its on the verge of towering
Rikashiku said on 20/Nov/13
4 inches, Sam? He's towering over Pattinson.
gian92 said on 12/Nov/13
he seems max 6'4
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Jun/13
Yeah, he doesnt look a big 6'6 to me too.
He's probably in the 6'5-6'6 range though
said on 6/Jun/13
The more I see of this guy, the more I think he's closer to 6'5", may just a bit over but not 6'6". He towers over Russell Crowe of course, but next to Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis, he seems to struggle with looking 4 inches taller than Pattinson, let alone 5 inches.
Yaspaa said on 1/Jun/13
I can totally buy 6'6 for this guy. You guys must have been watching a different movie because he was easily taller than Dwayne, in fact noticeably taller, easy 3".
ice said on 27/Mar/13
towered over 6'2.5 Ashton Cutcher . 6'6 seems legit
Balrog said on 25/Jan/13
He looks more 6'5'' but either way he's a really tall dude and I believe he's easy 6'6'' at morning.
SolidSnake said on 14/Jan/13
Only 1 letter and 3 inches separates this guy from Kevin Durant lol
ice said on 11/Jan/13
In the butterfly effect i would have guessed 194-195 cm .. Didnt really look like 198 cm next to 189 cm Ashton Cutcher . But tall anyways !!
Desann said on 5/Jan/13
Rob, everyone here says that Durand is 6'5" so why won't you agree and change his height to 6'5"?
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Jan/13
No way the rock is near 6'4! He's about 6'3, which means even 6'2.5 is very possible! Durand didnt look much taller in that movie... In my opinion, hes not a 6'6 guy, but hes probably 6'5 range. Maybe 6'5.5
said on 26/Dec/12
Rob, what do you say. Why didn't you answer my request?? Have you seen this video clip?
[Editor Rob: up against a truck he can look a bit taller, then a few inches taller, if they were standing side by side it would be easier to see how much difference there is]
said on 26/Dec/12
Look at this video at 00:26 Click Here
where The Rock stands beside Kevin Durand. There isn't even a real height difference between them. Durand has only an inch on The Rock who is listed at 6'3" on CelebHeights. So could you downgrade Durand's height for at least an inch and upgrade the height of The Rock for an inch? So that The Rock is 6'4" and Durand 6'5"?
Desann said on 15/Nov/12
Rob, everyone here is saying that Durand is not a legit 6'6". So why won't you change his height to 6'5 1/2" then??
Denis said on 6/Oct/12
Well I think that Durand is more 6'5 1/2". Not a legit 6'6".
matt678 said on 4/Oct/12
actually looked only 1.5 to 2 inches taller then the rock so 6 ft 5 on the dot
matt678 said on 11/Sep/12
6 foot 1 MAX!!!!!! lol jk looks a legit 6 foot 6
ANDREA[ITA] said on 17/Aug/12
Rob, you've seen more of him? He's for sure very tall, i remembered a video where Jensen Ackles was talking about working with tall people (Padalecki, Welling, Durand) and looking the short one. He said that Durand would make Jared look small. But i'm still not convinced he's a legit big 6'6 guy. I mean, you think he'd be taller than the last challenger, who looked huge in comparison with you?
Shaun said on 11/Aug/12
Well he looks maybe 7 inches taller than Crowe, yeah 6'5.5" maybe.
said on 11/Aug/12
6'6" is a bit of a stretch I think, doesn't look more than 6'5" next to 5'10.5" Russell Crowe here.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 31/Jul/12
I think that hugh jackman is 187 at worst! Kevin looked about 4 inches taller, i think he could be 6'5.5, not sure about 6'6!
BigT said on 23/Jul/12
Looked spot on 10 cm taller than Hugh Jackman, whom I belive is 185-186 cm max, that makes Kevin Durand in the 195-196 cm range, which seems right IMO.
said on 6/Feb/12
Rob if you downgrade Durand's height, shouldn't you downgrade Jackman's height as well? There is a difference of four inches between them.
[Editor Rob: well I've not changed his height since adding him]
said on 31/Jan/12
So, how can he be 6'6? He's for sure very tall but not this tall. What about a downgrade?
[Editor Rob: if I seen enough to think he is nearer 6ft 5 than 6 I would change, but not as yet.]
said on 29/Jan/12
Rob, i saw different pics of him with MC Gainey and he looks max 2.5 inches taller than Gainey. Is there a possibility Gainey is about 6'4? You met him, so i trust you... How do you explain there's just this difference? You think he'd be taller than the last challenger?
[Editor Rob: gainey looks about 6ft 2 in person.]
Ajax said on 30/Dec/11
I thought he was 6'5" but I can agree with 6'6"
Chris said on 28/Dec/11
There's a scene in robin hood were he stands next to Scott Grimes (listed here 5'7.5) and he looks almost a foot taller than him. Very tall guy. Legit 6'6.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Dec/11
NOt a legit 6'6, that's sure! 6'5-6'5.5 range is more like his range!
maximus said on 30/Nov/11
6'5 to 6'6" is defintley accurate....this guy looked huge in Legion. Vin Diesel would need shoes worn by Kiss front man Jean Simmons to be as tall as Durand....but then again that may be to obvious...he could wear some really wide bell bottoms to hide them!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 20/Nov/11
Ok! He said he's 6'6 but he could be rounding his height! I dont think he'd measure 6'6 if measured! Maybe in the morning but i think he's more like around 196 mark!
said on 17/Nov/11
Claims 6'6 in this video at 3:50.
LAN Jiao said on 9/Nov/11
said on 15/Sep/11
Rob, did you list him at 6'6 just because he said it? Is there a possibility he's only 6ft5?
[Editor Rob: a possibility he dips below 6ft 6, but just 6ft 5 I'm not so sure.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 11/Sep/11
He looks sometimes 6ft4.5 sometimes 6ft5 sometimes 6f5.5! I think he's 6ft6 in the morning, 6f5.5 is probably his real height!
lan jiao said on 6/Sep/11
becoz durand real height was listed 6ft5 when he began acting. 6ft6 by his words probably early morning he is that tall. durand solid 6ft5.
Boogee said on 4/Jul/11
I mean. It's kinda strange. In Wild Hogs he looked really gigantic but didn't look much taller than The Rock in Walking Tall. How could it be that there were only 1.5 inch height difference between them if The Rock is listed as 6'3" on CelebHeights and Durand at 6'6". There is never 3 inch height difference between them.
Boogee said on 28/Jun/11
Just because he claimed 6'6" doesn't mean anything that he hits that mark most time during the day. I do not hasitate if that guy took his morning height measurement because in most of his movies he doesn't look more than a strong 6'5". Anyway in Walking Tall that guy had exactly one and a half inch on Dwayne Johnson who is funnily enough listed as 6'3" on CelebHeights. In Walking Tall there was never three inches height difference between them so if Durand stands at that mark as he claimed then The Rock has to be 6'4.5" but that's bull**** since The Rock is a weak 6'4", Durand has to be at least 6'5" so a question to you, Rob, if everybody here on this side has the opinion that Durand is not a legit 6'6" so why don't you downgrade his height for a half inch or a full inch?? I would prefer stating his height as 6'5" because celebrites who claim a height mark with an extra half inch are off.
Jake T. said on 21/Apr/11
I saw some pictures of him with Sam Worthington, Ryan Reynolds, Russell Crowe and Huge Jackman. Durand looks like he can be as tall as 6'5.5 compared to these guys.
LG69 said on 9/Mar/11
I thought this was a typo for "Kevin Durant" the NBA player. I have never heard of Kevin Durand.
Aaron said on 4/Mar/11
Whenever I hear his name I think Kevin Garnett, and I'm always confused... I haven't seen Garnett in movies with Crowe and Ryan Reynolds? :P
Anyway, 6'5", but easily over 6'5" in the morning standing up straight. For some reason, he never looks especially big to me. His mongoloid face doesn't give off the impression of "massive terrifying man!"
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/11
I think they made The Rock a bit taller so Durand wouldn't be that much tall, but when walking on the carpet or outside the movies, he looks a sure 6'6, he is much taller than Jackman and Reynolds.
Darkman said on 14/Oct/07
I dunno about this guy. He is definitly 6'5" at the least. But he really didn't look alot taller than the Rock in Walking tall. Rock was probably wearing big shoes so I think we should place him at 6'5 1/2" but 6'5" is where I put the money on.
said on 12/Oct/07
I highly doubt that this guy is anything under 6'6": Click Here
Kimmer said on 29/Sep/07
Kevin has to be 6.6, he is massive, and a lot taller than Ryan Reynolds who is 6.2
Ed said on 15/Sep/07
The weird thing is he doesn't look this tall at all in 3:10 to Yuma while wearing cowboy boots? Next to Bale he looked about 4-5 inches taller at times, and around 6in taller than Crowe who both wore boots as well. Based on that movie alone if I didn't know I'd say he was 6ft4. But after seeing him look several inches taller than The Rock in Walking Tall, and looking massive in Smoking Aces, I'm not quite sure on this guy! Maybe he's closer to 6ft4.5, because with the big heeled cowboy boots he was wearing in 3:10 he'd be pushing 6ft8, and he looked nowhere near that big!
KengMann said on 28/Jul/07
Durand is 6' 6" as well because in Wild Hogs he really looked very tall. And also in Walking Tall he looked one and a half inch taller than 6' 4" or even 6' 5" tall Dwayne Johnson.
Viper said on 9/May/07
Rock isnt 6-4.
Commi said on 9/May/07
Well, in Wild Hogs, Kevin Durand looked like a giant (easily over 6' 5.25". But in Walking tall, he didn't look much taller than 6' 4" tall Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Bertie said on 25/Jan/07
Kevin Durand is never 6' 6". 6' 5.5" is his real height.
Jon Smith said on 18/Jun/06
He didnt look that tall in walking tall however next to ashton in the butterfly effect he looked like a giant. I'd give him 6'5 but not 6'6.
