Wilt Chamberlain another famous giant always said he was 216.25cm conversion to imperial = 7'1.13385''. he got listed as 7'2''-7'2.5'' on most other sites. Hall was no taller than Wilt. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar edged both of them by a centimeter I think he is listed at 7'1.625''.

How much do you figure he weighed?

Like Ian Whyte, Kevin Peter Hall played basketball up into what you could call the minor league and Hall always maintain that athleticism, strength and dexterity. Although not a massive beast like Andre the Giant or The Big Show, Hall was a cool-looking dude, like a normal fit, lanky guy that happened to be a gigantic height.

That Night Court Episode 'Nuts for Harry' had actors who would be on the low end of tall i.e Mac 6'2'', Harry 6'3'' then you had actors who are very tall like Larroquette 6'5'',Cromwell 6'6'' Moll 6'7.5'' and Hall the tallest of them all at 7'1''

A very powerful,agile and dextrous man. I believe the Predator suit weighed 100+ pounds. He has been mentioned as being anywhere from 7'-7'6''. He was closer to 7'1'' fully straight but looked taller most of the time.

KPH's head looks massive.It must be at least 11" long.So it's about 1.5"-2" longer than an average head.His eyeline must be at least 5.5" under the top of his head.Considering this I would say that Richard Moll is about 5 inches shorter(5.5" considering their footwear) and Cromwell is about 7"-7.5" shorter than KPH.So my estimations are:

KPH: 7'1.5"
Cromwell: 6'6.5"
Richard Moll: 6'8"
Larroquette: 6'4"(one of the few legit 6'4" in Hollywood)

I can't believe that Larroquette was only 2.5" taller than Arlond(Arnold claimed he had been measured 6'1.5" w/o shoes at 80's).
Sam said on 1/Apr/13
Some nice comparison shots there. If I'm not mistaken that's 6'6" James Cromwell between Larquette and Hall. Richard Moll holds his own even considering his footwear advantage (only about 4-5 inches shorter than Hall I think) and this is the only time I've seen Cromwell look short!

These are some great photos I extracted from bs player watching Night Court(Kevin wears converse so he has a good 0.5" disadvantage from Richard Moll).Laroquette looks pretty tall too.

Its hard to tell because I didn't see him in person. But he was more than 7'2 according to people who worked with him. But his height doesn't matter, what matters is that he was great at what he did, and no one will ever get close. !Hey Predator is all his, the upcoming guys will be learning from him. Hw was a master at suit work. Its a shame he died, he would have done som many movies> But well that's life, at least he's is alive in my house whenever i put his movies to honor his work, and to talk to everyone about him its my pleasure, and to make them see who was behind the mask.

Interseting fact about KPH: He came from a very tall family. He was the tallest of his brothers, all of whom were over 6'5. His dad was 6'5, and even his mother was 6'2. Some genes in that family. Shame he isn't with us anymore, he was great.

How big must hall have been in that predator outfit. He would have been at least 7'6-8" with the added head gear and feet padding, remember when arnie was pinned against that tree by hall as the predator with his feet dangling about a foot off the ground, thats when i realised that that guy must have been like 7'2-3" given arnies a solid 6'1"

In that Night Court episode with Hall, he was surrounded by what has got to be the tallest cast ever assembled for a sitcom. Hall shared scenes with 6'4" Harry Anderson, 6'5" John Larroquette, 6'7" James Cromwell, and 6'8" Richard Moll! Of course he was not going to appear as tall as if he were sharing the scenes with people of average height. While they did tout Hall as being 7'4" in the episode, I'd give him around 7'2" with the potential for an extra inch since he did spend the entire episode slouching and ducking under door frames.

I think hes 7'2. He looked it with ease in Harry and the Hendersons. Wouldn't suprise me if he were close to 7'3 though.

I grew up with Kevin, and went to school with him from first grade on. I still have many pictures of him in my elementary school class. we were very close, but grew apart after high school. I watched grow from childhood, and still remember his head touching the clock in the school hallway. He was definitely about 7'2" or so.
bob said on 2/Feb/06
I had seen the night court episode again tonight and Hall can only be 7' at the most in the episode with the shoes he had one either half inch or inch shoes.
Just look at him next to Mac who is 6'2" with shoes and he is a good 9 to 10 inches taller putting him at 7'.

They even said he's 7'4" in the episode but there is no way that can be true. Yes he did slouch but that put him around 6'10"-6'11".

John Larroquette is a true 6'4" and 6'5" in shoes. Hall is 6-7 inches taller than him. Moll might be listed at 6'9" but no way is he that tall.

Moll is anywhere between 6'7" and 6'8" with shoes, putting him at 6'7.5" in shoes. He's only a few inches taller than John Larroquette. which is funny how Dan always seemed so scared of him considering he's almost as big as him.

I went to high school with Peter. I remember that he was nice to everyone, even those that were unpopular. Whenever I think of him, I remember him walking down the hall and his head was as high as the clock. I thought he was at least 7 feet tall.

I had the privilege to meet KPH during a sneak preview of Predator, which seems like a million years ago! He was wearing sandals with hardly any sole to them. I'm 5'-10" and have played basketball against a lot of guys around seven feet tall. I've also been within a few feet from Shaquille O'Neal; another seven- footer. KPH was as tall as Shaq.
supes78 said on 23/Sep/05
That Night Court episode had Kevin stooping and slouching a lot. He played a meek and timid character so you never got to see him stand straight at his full height.
sam said on 23/Sep/05
I just find it really hard to believe he was 7 feet even or anything under. He just always looked so huge. He looked just under a solid foot taller than John Lithgow, who has always listed as 6'4". Are you absolutely sure, bob, that the 4 inch difference you saw wasn't closer to a 6 inch difference. I'd stick by 7'2"-7'3".
TNTinCA said on 6/Sep/05
Its funny that bob mentioned that Night Court episode. I just happened to catch that exact re-run on the Night Court marathon on Nicket-Night. Sure enough, it had James Cromwell in there as well. I am not sure if bob's memory is hazy of the episode, but Kevin towered over everyone in that show. In the one scene, where he exits the judge's quarters, he stands next to Richard Mole who I believe they list at 6'9". Seems right since Mole's head just scrapes the top of most doors. Kevin is clearly several inches taller and had to stoop to get through the door. I can't say for certain how much of a height disparity existed between Mole and Hall but it was at least 2-3 inches. He is definately over 7' tall. I would say no less than 7'1".
