I think he was at peak 6ft0.5/184 cm, while in the last movies he looked close to 5ft11.
Great actor and funny person!

Rob, how tall would you estimate O.J. Simpson to be?
[Editor Rob: what he was listed as a footballer?]

Nielson was a solid six two in his younger days. He towered over five eleven Glenn Ford in The Sheepman.

And in Forbiddon Planet he was as tall as Walter Pidgeon who was listed as being six two.

But by the late 1970s he had lost an inch.

Here he is with Sean Connery looking shorter:

By the 1990s he had lost at least two inches.

Peaked at 6' 0.75" (184.5 cm) and stood about 5' 10.75" by the '00s.

Surprised to see no page for O.J. Simpson Rob. I think a flat 6 ft 1.
Shaun says on 8/Sep/12
Naked Gun films of course were 1988-1994 and he would have lost more height up until his death some 20 years later. I've seen the Naked Gun films lots of time and always got a 5'11-6' impression of him. George Kennedy on the other hand still looked a full 6 ft 4 next to Nielsen and 6'1" OJ.

Rob would you agree that him and Reagan looked a very similar height and were likely more 182cm range by their later years?
[Editor Rob: they could be similar range, Leslie did lose several inches by his latter years]
Shaun says on 7/Sep/12
Same height as Reagan I reckon 185cm peak, 182cm later in life. In Naked Gun he was looking 5'11-6' range next to 6'4" George Kennedy.

I know I should go to Height Request for this
but, Rob what are your estimates for OJ Simpson?
German Wunderkind says on 6/Aug/12
I saw him next to Michael Landon (5'9) in Highway to Heaven, he sees no more than 5'11 "
somebody says on 3/Aug/12
his body looks on 59 510 top... Perhaps he was wearing elevator shoes...
