Cyrus...please...Rob has right. I highly doubt too that he was ever that low. If you're right David James Elliott is only 188cm, Bruce Campbell is 180 and Zachary Levi is 186cm.

Compare with Levy in 2004.

They are the same: Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/16
Does he really look just 189cm today?


I think 190cm now and 191-192cm peak is more of a compromise.
Cyrus said on 18/Sep/16
It's me again. In my opinion, his barefoot height was 186 cm, but this is just my estimation. This doesn't mean that I'm right. Anyone can have an opinion.
Editor Rob: true, but sometimes an estimate can be too far from a possible range. I think you could make an argument for 189cm, but 186 seems hard to believe.

In person he certainly looked seemed several cm's taller than 186 and I doubt is a guy who wears lifts.
Cyrus said on 16/Sep/16
Hollywood is famous for exaggerating celebrity heights. I think he was advised by his agent to say that he's 6'3 to create the image of Hercules for the fans. According to me, his peak height during the Hercules filming was 186 cm (barefoot). The weight of 235 lbs at this height is legit because being so tall, he wasn't too muscular.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jul/16
Rob, how likely would 6ft2¾(190cm) be now that he's pushing 60?
Editor Rob: quite likely now.
sb said on 17/Jul/16
I am totally with Rocketman's comment in 2013. I was exiting an airplane, and saw Kevin Sorbo gathering up his luggage. He was waiting on his ride. I was surprised. I am 5' 6". He was barely taller than me. I realize that Hollywood can create what image they want. But, it's a shame we can just love this actor for his talent, and campy humor. I loved the series Hercules.
S.J.H said on 2/Apr/16
6'3 , 6'3.25 and 6'3.5 as he claim i still believe he drop till 6'3 by night and could be probably drop a fraction and just 6'2 and 3/4 lowest by now in his late 50s
kurtz said on 7/Feb/16
height spot on 190 cm.

about weight i think he never goes or went over 215 pounds, nor in hercules
Kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 30/Aug/15
I thought he was close to 6ft 4.This listing is spot on.
Silent_D said on 25/May/15
I believe hercules is 6 foot 3.
Harold said on 12/Apr/15
Arnold just called again: he said that if it wasn't for that pesky double hip replacement, the knee surgery, and the shoulder replacement surgery, he could still be almost five foot eleven, like his real peak height. He also wants to ask Kevin where he can find a good stepladder or box for photos taken above the knees...
actor said on 25/Mar/15
I did a few scenes with Kevin Sorbo back in the "Andromeda" days for one episode and I'm 6ft4 1/2 inches tall.. Kevin and I were almost much eye to eye but he is a bit shorter so id say he was easily 6ft 3 back then. It was a real pleasure to work with him, very down to earth individual.
Lorne said on 24/Mar/15
Yeah, a legit 191cm is fine. I wasn't aware he has also now claimed 6'3.5, and I don't think he's lying, but if he measured that mark it was probably earlier in the day like Rob said. More likely, I think maybe he's measured between 6ft3-6ft3.4 throughout his life, so he alternates between saying 6ft3 or a tad over 6ft, and just happened to come out with the 6'3.5(or vice versa).

I still say, if he was 10-20 years younger in the above pic, he looks exactly like I have pictured Richard Rahl(but primarily just in the above pic, with the hair and height).
Mathew said on 22/Mar/15
I think this listing is reasonable. Just to show the difference between claims vs appearances check out his pictures with Seal and Bill O'Reily. In his picture with Seal (who has claimed 6'4") they looked pretty much exactly the same height. Yet in his photo with O'Reily (who also claims 6'4") there looked to be at least a 1" difference if not closer to 1.5". Of course posture, footwear, and camera angles can influence things in a photo but I believe he and Seal are roughly 6'3" or a shade over it and Bill O'Reily is about an inch taller.
Rusty 190cm said on 6/Feb/15
I met the guy recently at Disneyland when I went there with some friends, he was dining at a restaurant. I am 1/8 shy of 6'3" and did not think he was any taller than me. I think he has lost a little height which isn't unreasonable for his age since he's 56 now. I think he is 190cm at best these days but I certainly buy the 6'3.25" for his prime but i think hes heading for weaker 6'3" area these days.
Rudolph said on 3/Jan/15
Arnold just called: he said Sorbo is really five foot ten or so and has spent years masquerading as six foot three or so.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/15
What's he like, Rob?

A lot of these big super-hero type guys tend to get a bad rep for being quite arrogant on unapproachable
[Editor Rob: he seemed personable and friendly from what I've seen of him.

But remember cons are different than in a public setting. You are being paid to attend and interact, so luckily the percentage who might not be as friendly in that environment is quite low compared to that of a street type scenario.]

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Nov/14
Rob, is it possible that he may have been 6ft3½ in his 30s?
[Editor Rob: I think his fraction over 6ft 3 is fine, he might not have been measured at night.]

@Lillo Thomas
That makes good sense. I'm actually starting to waiver a little on 6ft being the start of tall. Maybe 6'1 is the new 6'0.
@RampageClover
Without a doubt. I actually mistook him for 6'4 when I met him at a book signing for True Strength, some years ago. Real cool guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
He probably could get away with claiming 6ft4
Lillo Thomas said on 24/Oct/14
KROC I'm aware that most people think 6'3 is very tall. I guess that depends when do you think the tall classification starts. Many people think 6'0 is the start of tall in the USA. I and others disagree. 6'0 is more in the above average range and 6'1 is the start of legit tall on my opinion. 6'3 guys are in the solid tall range. The tallest guys you can see everywhere are usually between 6'3 and 6'4. 6'5 - 6'6 is the start of the very tall range and when it becomes rare to see legit guys at this heights. It's matter of opinion. I'm aware you think 6'3 is very tall and you are 6'5. I'm 6'5 but I don't see this height as very tall. 6'3 is solid tall no doubt about that.

@lillo Thomas
Curious, why do you think that 6'5 is the start of very tall? In my opinion a strong 6'3 is the start of it and 6'6 is the end of it.
Lillo Thomas said on 23/Oct/14
5'11 barefoot what the hell you are talking about ? 6'3 is a legit tall guy . A solid 5 inches over average young black and white guys. Most people will say 6'3 is very tall . In my opinion 6'5 is the start of very tall range. 6'3 is tall period. I guess you are trolling.
5'11" barefoot said on 21/Oct/14
6'3" I not very tall. Unless your like 5'8" and under. I play basketball and hate playing against small people. Tall guys love playing smaller opponents until they play against me. I make guys 6'5" and taller look very bad playing ball. I'm assuming most people on here are small and must think that 6'3' is tall. How funny!

6'3'' with plenty of spare change.

I never ever imagined that he was that tall seeing him in Hercules, but he really looks about 6'3... Very tall man, 6'3 seems correct...
KROC said on 19/Feb/14
@Rampage Clover
Michael Clarke Duncan didn't look anything over 6'3 when I saw him at a function 5 years ago. And I remember seeing a picture of The Rock and Brendan Fraser at a movie premier (It was probably the Mummy)looking the exact same height. The Rock is probably 6'2.5.
Dietmar said on 18/Feb/14
Kevin looks moore like a 6'4 guy. He was about 3 inches taller than Autolycus (Bruce Campbell) in Hercules. I think 192cm is dead on.
moe said on 23/Jan/14
i_rocketman is a liar, plain and simple. I saw Kevin Sorbo at the Grove in 2011, and he is definitely 6'3. He could actually say 6'4 and I'd believe him. Looked taller then Zachary Levi.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/13
KROC: I think he can look it. He was about 1in under the late Michael Clark Duncan who was a strong 6ft4 at least, possibly 6ft4.5. He edged out Brendan Fraser in The Mummy.
KROC said on 25/Dec/13
Rampage Clover Just curious do you really believe that the Rock is a strong 6'3? I just can't see it. Especially compared to Kevin Sorbo! Got to meet him in person almost 2 years ago for a book signing for True Strength. Strong 6'3... could probably even pass for 6'4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/13
I can't to see The Rock as Hercules. Probably won't hold a torch to this guy
Ted said on 2/Dec/13
Good call Rob, 6'3" indeed.

Since you mention his weight, interesting sidenote: Sorbo said in an interview that he went down to 210 pounds to play Dylan Hunt in the Andromeda TV show.

I guess all the weightlifting he did for Hercules got to be a bit much, and/or it wasn't the right look for Hunt.
Yaspaa said on 30/Sep/13
1/4 inch upgrade, cool.
Len said on 12/Sep/13
One of the few guys who claims 6'3" and really does look it... props on his honesty.

And of course he was great on Hercules and on Andromeda. He's even pretty good in the occasional really awful SyFy Channel movie, aka Lightning Strikes.
kreyzig 6ft 3in said on 1/Sep/13
At least 190cms for sorbo.
PLB said on 29/Aug/13
Sorbo was almost killed by a chiropractor who cracked his spine and tore his carotid artery which precipitated a stroke. He was in very bad shape for several years. We are all happy to see that he has made a recovery. These are not the kind of injuries that effect your height.
Lorne said on 4/Aug/13
Looking at him now, he really looks like he could play Richard Rahl!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/13
But Rob, when you met him did he appear 191-192cm?
[Editor Rob: I could buy him having been 6ft 3 and 2 matchsticks, he appeared 6ft 3, but not as tall as 6ft 3.5-4 men can look]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jul/13
I think this guy, Paul Bettany, Jimmy Smits, Sacha Baron Cohen and The Rock
are strong 6ft3 guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/13
But, could the 6ft3.25 be a morning height, Rob?
[Editor Rob: no, he's probably 6ft 4 out of bed. Or at least was, with all stunts and action roles over years always possible to shed a fraction by today.]
Rey said on 9/Jul/13
Dead On!!! 6'3".25 Congrats on this one...I think I ll have a drink.
i_rocketman said on 9/Jul/13
Something doesn't add up here. I worked a few days on the show Andromeda. My first day, I opened the studio door to enter, when out came Hercules himself! I was stunned because I'm 5'11" and he was at least 2-3" shorter then me. He was standing straight. Either he took some massive growth hormones in the last decade, or did some kind of height surgery to get there. All I can say is I saw what I saw.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/13
Rob, are you going to give him 6"3.25'?
[Editor Rob: a strong 6ft 3, the 'tad over' bit seems reasonable, there isn't many 3.25 maybe I'll give him it.]
David said on 16/May/13
His height has been given as six three for years. In his book True Strength he said he was a tad over six three when he got the role of Hercules. Do you think he was possibly six three and one quarter in his youth? That was the first time I saw that.
[Editor Rob: yes it's possible, not many people are going to say 1/4 inches]

Damn I don't see how anyone could say he looks anything less than 6'3; he even looks taller tbh in comparison to other 6'3 celebs I've seen on this site.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 8/Sep/12
No way under 190-191 for this guy, he never look under 6'3.

186-187 is crap.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/12
He's dropping 1in at least on the right because he looks no more than 6"1.25(186cm). So he should look 188-189cm with better posture. He's 6"3.5(192cm) on the left strangely enough.

Okay, the current height is fine. Forget about what I said earlier...

I'm 6'2" and 244 and I have to say that he looks bigger than me (in his prime).
So I can accept 235 ...
Xhavier said on 5/Aug/12
Just a thought, but wouldn't you think the man knows his own height and weight.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jul/12
235lbs at his heaviest looks believable. He looks
jacked up in Hercueles. Aswell when your that tall
it's easier for the body to distribute muscle mass. So
he doesn't look as big as he really is.
Witchdoctor said on 11/Jun/12
everytime I watch an old video of him in Hercules I get extremely pissed at him saying he was 235lbs,even manganiello who is 2 inches taller looks bigger then him and he only claims 220lbs! 6'3 on the nose for his height
aaron1337 said on 28/Jan/12
This interview is from 2010. Watch the part after 08:50. He says he is 6'3" and weighed 220lbs, now 215 lbs. He also claims Arnold Schwarzenegger is 5'11".

Cranberries said on 22/Jan/12
In Hercules, I'd estimate him at 6'3" ~222 lbs. 235 might be possible if he were on a creatine bulk (adds lots of water and food weight). I don't think he was anything less than 220.

@isra: I find your stats impossible to believe. With those stats at your height you could be nothing less than a shredded and extremely cut 200 lbs. I'm 6'4" and 215 with a graceful build and my chest is 42", arms 16". I can see my abs.
steven said on 20/Jan/12
in hercules he is probably 235lbs with his outfit and shoes weigh it. i believe 225lbs peak in hercules. most of the time he look 215-200lbs.
Silent d said on 17/Jan/12
He said he was 6 foot 3 on craig ferguson last night. He talked about his 3 strokes and anaerism. during season 5 and 6 of hercules. He said he was in the best physical shape of his life but he still looks ripped today. He didn't look 235 pounds in hercules. I thought he was 200 pounds. I guess i didn't watch many episodes. I believe he is 6 foot 3. Much taller than 5 foot 10 lucy lawless.

isra, you were 6'2 180lbs and a chest at 47"? are you kidding? usually at 188cm and weight of 81kg with a built upper body should only had a chest measure at 40-42" max. 47" sounds like 6'2 240lbs person should have. im quite in a built and 185lbs 6'3 range my chest only measure at 40.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/12
On the left he's 191.5cm/6ft3.25 but
might be wearing boots. On the left he's
max 6ft2, more like 186-187cm...
isra said on 22/Dec/11
I'm 6'2", 180 lbs. I've 18" biceps,47" chest, skinny-ish legs at 16" calf and 25" thigh though so I only weigh 190. 235 is simply impossible for Sorbo. Look at David Haye who at 6'3" averages 208 in the heavyweight division

235 lbs. is reasonable. Arnold wasn't very tall, so that's why he weighed 237 competing. 6'3" is a lot bigger than 6'1" and especially 6'0".

I didn't think he was so tall! However, by judging the photos near Rob and considering he is not straight in them, about 6'3 seems accurate to me.
Alex said on 6/Oct/11
I always found him to be quite skinny for someone playing Hercules. He certainly got the height though.
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 22/Sep/11
Just remembered that he was in Meet the Spartans and felt like coming here to commemorate his abruptly ended career.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/11
Looks 191-192cm or a strong 6"3 on the left but has a shoe advantage. In similar shoes to Rob he would look at least 0.5in. I doubt he's shorter than 6"2, but on the left he struggles to look 187cm.
I think Kevin's height is 6"2.5(189cm).
Hansen said on 24/Aug/11
i once read a magazine they had Kevin Sorbo at 6ft2.25 listed and 225pounds over ten years ago. also i find out there is a listing given 6ft3 at 190cm for Sorbo. maybe he hover 6ft2.5 so either he round up now 6ft3 or round down 6ft2 during past. also to me he look a solid 189cm in hercules.
Terryman said on 1/Aug/11
when you see him with fans he looks lanky and looks like he could be 1,91m, so yeah even though he never looked the full 191cm on Hercules maybe he is that height,and please 235lbs? go and look at Rughby players who are that weight and then compare them to Sorbo's frame in Hercules,also use Adam baldwin(230lbs)
5\'8.56784 said on 26/Jul/11
A strong 6'3 even now. Doesn't look that much shorter than 6'6 Chuck Finley, it's just that Finley is a massive guy that could dwarf even 6'4 dudes. It's funny how much older Sorbo looks from 2 years apart, and Rob looks exactly the same, lol, what's your diet Rob?
[Editor Rob: actually I think he looked better in the longer haired photo than in the first one from 2005 (him in shirt).]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/11
He looks a lot broader in the left picture...
Rob would you have noticed a difference in his weight during the two occasions that you met Kevin?
[Editor Rob: maybe he had an extra bit of weight in preparation for a role, possibly he was going to do that Meet the Spartans film around that time, he had a bit more bulk to him for that than in 2006 photo.]
James said on 20/Jul/11
oh ok rob i just thought he might have been losing like 1 inch of height with his posture.
[Editor Rob: yeah he'll lose some height, of course I am not standing at my tallest either, although in that older shot I did stand tall.]
Yaspaa said on 13/Jul/11
Tyson was barely 5'10 and weighed 220, 235 peak for Sorbo is completely reasonable.
daveyy said on 6/Jul/11
Solid 1.91 m guy.
James said on 6/Jul/11
he looks like he could be 6'5 if he stood better with rob in the left pic.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 5 is crazy, he's not losing that much and I'm not standing like a military man there ;)

this is the same man who looks like this with a 6ft 6 Chuck Finley]

I definitely don't think he's taller than 6'3". But 6'3" flat is very reasonable, especially on the left.

the wasn't a single episode of hercules where he looked near 235lbs,he was probably high when he said that! Anyway 1m90 no taller than that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jun/11
Well actually he looks more like an ectomorph on the right...but regardless of that he's built like a brick house and would make an ideal candidate for Superman

More likely under James...But he does look 192cm on the left.
James said on 8/May/11
i guess there could be more of a chance he is under 6'3 than over?

235 lbs. is reasonable. Arnold wasn't very tall, so that's why he weighed 237 competing. 6'3" is a lot bigger than 6'1" and especially 6'0".

I'm 6'3" and I'm built like a rail but I weigh 195 lbs. (I'm 17 and a lot of it's bone weight; a simple benchmark increase from 6.5" wrists at 16 to 7.5" wrists at 17 bumped up my lean body mass by 10-15 lbs.). Seriously, no muscle (12.75 inch biceps), very little fat, 6'3" 195. 235 lbs. is very reasonable.

Looks a solid 5 inches taller than Rob on the right. So 185-186cm on the right. Straighten him up and hes at least 6'2. I doubt hes over 6'3 but

Okay, well related to his height, 6ft 3in seems correct, after all that is what he said.

However, on to another comment. This fellow would quite honestly make a great superman.

He has the height, the build (or can at least get it back--basically what he was in Hercules, just about 10Lbs less)---go based on the original first drawings of superman, the smile, the charisma, and the presence.

Just a thought.

@josh: coleman is 188cm compare this photo with brandon rouths (legit 189cm) sorbo is shorter than 189cm for sure.

@Anonymous He's taller than that, compare his pic with Jack Coleman's and even with the shoe advantage he looks a legit 6"3

@RampageClover so 6"3 is near 6"4 but 6"2.75 is not?

Arnold Schwarzenegger weighed 237 competing, had the world record chest size and 22 inch biceps.Dwayne Johnson weighs less than that now.Seriously doubt Sorbo's claim
dina raafat said on 1/Oct/07
i read in many sites that kevin sorbo is between 6ft3 and 6ft4 (191.cm,193cm) and ireally believe that because in andromeda steve basic is 185 and when he stand infront of kevin to taik with him kevin looked taller than him and also when kevin stands beside tyr anasazy (keith hamillton)who is 6ft4 they approximatelly have the same height and kevin sorbo really weight 235 in hercules then he lost 20 pounds of muscles between the end of hercules and the begining of andromeda in five years (1995,2000)so his weight became 215lbs and iwant to tell you guys that kevin sorbo is taller than any one of us could expect,he is also a very big guy in size that is what the people who saw him said and that is why he was the perfect person for the role hercules as he is very tall,huge,bread and too sexy
Derek said on 9/Sep/07
He doesn't look under 6'3". Agree Rob?
Brad said on 19/Jun/07
Kevin Sorbo and Kevin Smith (Ares God of War, Iphicles) both state their heights as 6'3". Yet Sorbo always looked taller than Smith. So is Sorbo taller than 6'3" or is Smith shorter?

He has always looked 6'3 to me.

this is the only time i think someone is taller than their claim. he looks closer to 6`4 to me.
Editor Rob said on 22/May/07
Joakim, I seen your grid now, I couldn't see it at airport.

Anyway, as I say head size is a tricky thing but mine in that position isn't 10 inches, its closer to 9.5 in reality although I had a bit more goat beard back then.

Click Here

See pic above, technically the 3 lines would represent 6ft 1 mark using 3 different calculations:
1) top green line would be using the pupil measurement, but because my head is like turned very slightly it is slightly trickier than if I was truly looking straight ahead.
2) The Blue line slightly below shows 6ft 1 if the distance of my head was 9.5
3) The orange if that distance was 10 inches.

The distance between those lines I marked for my head is really closer to 9.5 though.
Joakim Ågren said on 19/May/07
I dont like rounding up:). Even though mathimaticly it is okay to round up from 0.5 and above I dont like doing so with height. I try to be as precise as possible hehe:) so to me 6'3" is 190.50CM and 6'4" 193CM.

Regarding the head size. I guess that I have always made the wrong assumption that Sorbos head is 10.25"(26CM)long but I guess I might be wrong about that. Maybe Sorbo dont have such a large head as I thought if so maybe it is 25CM (10")making his upper-eylevel 12.5CM from the top if so the difference in the picture is 14CM because you are exactly at his lower eye level and assuming his eyes are 1.5CM wide that makes it 14CM. I have also layed out a grid over the picture and I can see that both of your heads seems identical in size. If so then we can verify his head size by measuring yours. So Rob exactly how long is your head? :)

Here is the picture I made:

Click Here

[Editor Rob: six three is rare in that the centimetre value lies smack bang in the middle between 190 and 191. The round to nearest function in the programming language means in that case round it to 191. I store everything in inches/feet. Yes, ther isn;t much difference, its same with another one I was checking my head against, brandon routh, not much difference there either.

I'm at an airport on my phone so can't see your grid, but head size varies a bit depending on tilt of course, I can't remember the tilt here I'd have to look at pic, but slight positive tilt upwards goes closer to nine inch, slight down close to ten, but measuring proper head length is harder than the pupil distance. Only thing with pupil distance is if you tilt your head to side and aren't looking dead straight towards camera you have to adjust it a very small amount aswell. Sometimes head length is better, other times pupil distance when there is too much side tilting]
Joakim Ågren said on 18/May/07
6'3" is not 191CM but 190.50CM. I have made a qualified estiment of his height by watching almost all episodes of Hercules, Andromeda and also his later appearence in the OC show and I estimate him to be 190CM which is 6'2.75"

He is not 191CM

As for the picture above. I can see that Rob has an unusually big head for his relatively short height. His head is the same lenght as Sorbos. This tells me that Rob never reached his full height potential and was most likely destined to be considerably taller maybe 5'11" or taller but something hindered him during his growth period. Anyway the height difference between the two above seems to be 14.5CM(5.75") but Sorbo is hunching abit so he probably is a full 17CM taller when standing straight making him 6'2.75"

191CM(6'3.25") is out of the question!

[Editor Rob: you are correct on not having below average but slight above average head for five eight, a necessary requirement to encase a large brain ;P six three is one of those where the foot and inch is rounded to nearest centimetre, although read the very bottom of the thread.

not quite five point seven five inches in the pic though. You must be using some assumptions about Sorbo's or my head length...the thing is, in a lot of wide angled portrait shots they do illustrate difference, vertical compression is really small. The majority of people overestimate it a little, even I do that with pics. I've posted proof of my pupil distance being about six point four centimetres on the lazenby thread, who incidentally is closer to five eleven and three quarters than people would imagine...]

Ok guys... I just ran into Kevin in the Ralphs next to my house in Westwood and the scoop is... he is between 6'2" and 6'3". He was wearing sneekers and so did I and I 6'00". at first I thought he was 6'1" but as I got right next to him he looked 6'2"...
Big Show said on 31/Jan/07
When Hercules started they listed Sorbo as 191cm (which is a strong 6'3), and they still listed him at this height when he filmed Kull the Conqueror in 1997.
When I saw the TV-shows that were aired before the series started, I actualy thought Sorbo was somewhere in 6'5, so I was kinda surprised that he was 'only' 6'3 lol.
ice said on 30/Jan/07
Does anybody remember when Hercules was at its peak? I could have sworn they had him at 6'4. I believe the 6'3 (190cm). I just find it funny that they tried to squeeze in even more height for him. If it would have lasted a little longer, they would have had him at 6'5! LOL

I think he realy is 6'3. I'm a big Xena and Hercules fan, and he always looked about 3 inches taller than Lucy Lawless. (who you have here at 5'10, but I think she's closer to 5'11)
venus said on 10/Oct/06
He has a great body, but his torso is rather short. His legs make up for his tallness, and his head is rather large. 6'3, I believe him.
guy said on 1/Oct/06
kevin sorbo could be more than 6'3"
TNTinCA said on 22/Sep/06
215 is much more likely based on his physique. Especially in the Hercules days. Nothing more than that.
He was not an avid bodybuilder; he weight trained to stay in shape but he is more ectomorphic than mesomorphic.
But yes, I can see a 43 chest for him. I am 5'10" and an avid bodybuilder and my chest is a 42. Looking at pictures of him, he does have a chest that is larger relative to his other muscles. So based on his larger height and skeletal structure, a 43 chest is likely. Or rather was likely since I don't think he is lifting like he used too.
Big Show said on 28/Jun/06
That baseball player looks 6'1.5. Kevin isn't even standing completely straigth, but is still a good inch taller. He's probably 6'3 in his shoes.

[Editor Rob: that's why I wonder about some of the baseball heights out there, can they be trusted...]
Big Show said on 20/Apr/06
During Kull the Conqueror Kevin weighed 215 lbs. He was at his peak back then, so I don't think he ever weighed more than that. I could definately see him at that weight, he's a pretty muscular guy.
A 43" chest is possible, his chest was probably his most impressive bodypart. I'm a pretty fanatic powerlifter myself, but my chest is not as huge as his. Mine's about 37 inches. Seeing the fact that he's taller than me and his chest is bigger, I think that a chest of 43" is possible.
Mr T said on 31/Mar/06
Mmm Rob if u are 1.73cm he looks more like 1.85cm , if he really is 1.91 hes head should be almost above you.

[Editor Rob: yes, I agree that in this picture, visually this is what a 186, maybe 187cm man looks like beside me...if he was standing with same stance, but he leaned a little down for the pic, that accounts for some cm...]
ice said on 24/Mar/06
Maybe you're right. But a 43" chest on TV? Tv really does make people look bigger. For example Mia Tyler always looked HUGE, but come to find out she wears a 11/12. So his 43" chest would look like a 45". I was thinking the 41" range.
Jason said on 22/Mar/06
I can believe the 43'' chest, but not the 235lbs. A 43'' chest won't look as big on a guy as tall as him (he's at least 6'2 1/2''). I reckon he really weighed about 205 yeah, when he was in Hercules. He was friggin' Hercules, so of course they were gonna embellish his weight.
ice said on 21/Mar/06
LOL, he was not 235. ON CAMERA he would either look fat, or like a body builder. He was neither. he appeared to be a medium sized muscular guy. I don't even think the 215 fits. I say 200-205. That on screen would look like 215 to us... oh yeah, he also claimed to have a 43 inch chest on a few websites. Embellishment? yes? no?

[Editor Rob: probably most surprising thing about him was he just wasn't anywhere near his hercules days, maybe the camera literally added another 10lbs to his frame...no idea about chest sizes really]
Jason said on 5/Jan/06
Arnold (although I've indeed seen 257lbs listings for him on the internet) said in one of his books, forget which one - may have been education of a bodybuilder - that he's never weighed more than 245 - 250lbs in his life. He used to compete at 225 - 235lbs.
Cobra said on 5/Jan/06
Sorbo is 6ft3, that`s clear, he always looked, taller than The Rock if I compare (but maybe because of the built, he is not so massive), but 235 pounds never.
In the Hercules days Sorbo was a well defined, 6ft3 215 lbs guy.
In Hercules 215 puounds
ester said on 4/Jan/06
apparently arnold weighed up to 257 lbs. could it by any chance be possibe that kevin did weigh 235 after all? i've read in a couple of sites where he weighed 215 since the age of 22, and adding 20 pounds at that height isn't overly visible, so it's possible. and i also believe he's 6"3
CelebHeights Editor said on 22/Aug/05
From 13thStreet.com, "I kind of had a movie that looked like it was going to happen. I got okayed by the studio. I got okayed by the director, okayed by the producers, by everybody, and then the star nixed me at the last minute. I won't say his name, but suffice it to say I wasn't surprised, because there are a lot of insecure people in this business, and I think he was afraid I might upstage him to some degree on the set. [That's] my opinion and my agent's opinion. It's the business. A lot of actors don't want to work with me because I'm 6'3" and they're 5'7". That's the way it is."
TOMinCA said on 3/Aug/05
I have to agree with Jason on that assessment. 6'3" is very likely. Sorbo is a tall fellow. But 235 lbs? Not a chance. A-h-h-h-nold himself peaked at 245 lbs during the height of his bodybuilding days and he is at least an inch shorter.
Sorbo is just not that muscular. And he certainly does not have enough body fat to account for that weight. At most, maybe 215 lbs.

[Editor Rob: Sorbo in person is just about 6ft 3, but I totally agree that he just does not have much build anymore. Compared to his hercules days he looked like he'd long given up the weight training ;)]
Jason said on 12/Jun/05
I belive he's around 6'3'', but if he was 235 pounds in Hercules I'm the Crown Prince of Sheba lol!
CelebHeights Editor said on 15/May/05
I've met Kevin in London and also got a photo with him. When I talked to him he did appear to stand just about 191cm, possibly 190cm. A really friendly guy! Far less muscular than his days on Hercules.
