American actor best known for his role as Hercules in the tv series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and as Captain Dylan Hunt in sci-fi show Andromeda. Speaking in the Post Gazette, Sorbo says for his role in Hercules that "I'm 6-foot-3, and I got up to 235 pounds.". In his book he also mentioned before getting Hercules that he was a big guy "a tad over six foot three and 220 pounds" and on twitter he said once in 2011: "I am 6 feet 3 1/2 inches". He had about 1/3rd inch more sneakers than me.

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.

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.

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!

A legit 6'3. He was the tallest person in Hercules, the only one bigger than him in the show was Tony Todd (6'5).
Mario says on 21/Apr/14
6'3'' with plenty of spare change.
Alucard says on 27/Mar/14
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...

@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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 12/Dec/13
I can't to see The Rock as Hercules. Probably won't hold a torch to this guy
Ted says 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 says on 30/Sep/13
1/4 inch upgrade, cool.
Len says 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 says on 1/Sep/13
At least 190cms for sorbo.
PLB says 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 says on 4/Aug/13
Looking at him now, he really looks like he could play Richard Rahl!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says on 17/Jul/13
I think this guy, Paul Bettany, Jimmy Smits, Sacha Baron Cohen and The Rock
are strong 6ft3 guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says on 9/Jul/13
Dead On!!! 6'3".25 Congrats on this one...I think I ll have a drink.
i_rocketman says 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 says 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 says 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]
Lenad is sexy says on 2/May/13

Hercules <333 Good timeees
Elijah says on 1/Feb/13
Just goes to show you that 6'3" really is the start of very tall. Good listing.

Alex says on 30/Jan/13
Legit 6ft3. He's losing a lot of height in this pic though.
Mike 181 says on 23/Jan/13
Rob did you ask him how he saw arnold at 5"11?
[Editor Rob: no, he talked about that in an interview, I can believe he was surprised when he saw arnold and probably thought he did look 5ft 11.]
Mike 181 says on 23/Jan/13
191 is right for sorbo
thorterr says on 21/Jan/13
defo 6ft 3,,hes leaning to,,maybe even a bit more height there
Kane says on 30/Nov/12
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 says on 8/Sep/12
No way under 190-191 for this guy, he never look under 6'3.

186-187 is crap.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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...
tom says on 26/Aug/12
looks right,hes leaning alot in pic2 to adjust to a shorter person,Im 6-2'5 and do this for shorter people.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 18/Aug/12
"Kevin Sorbo height: 6 ft 2.5 in (189cm)"
Tanner says on 14/Aug/12
Wow. Look how much bigger his hand is comparing to Robs in the picture on the left!
Bert says on 7/Aug/12
I always thought rick springfield was a thin guy until I met him. Big tall guy, frame similar to Sorbo--Rick was about 6'2"-everyone in shock that he was not this small skinny guitar player.
txdrummerboy says on 7/Aug/12
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 says on 5/Aug/12
Just a thought, but wouldn't you think the man knows his own height and weight.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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.
aaron1337 says 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".
