Michael Imperioli's Height
5ft 8in (173 cm)
US Actor. The Sopranos star is a tricky guy to pin down. I keep changing this guy, he can look from 5ft 7 to 5ft 9 sometimes!

Watching a Law and Order episode right now... Dennis Farina is listed as 6'2" in some places and Imperioli is listed as 5'8"... no way is there a 6 inch difference. Looks to be around 3 in this particular episode.

He looks 5'7"...nothing more.

In the series "Life on Mars" (great show, by the way), he often stood next to Harvey Keitel, who--by 2008-9, when the show was filmed--had to be no more than 5'7. The two always looked EXACTLY the same height. So, for my money, Michael is 5'7.

Hey Rob, are you sure about his height? He looks a lot shorter in the Sopranos when he is standing next to Drea de Matteo.

This is Christopher right yeah an average heighted guy anywhere from 5ft7-5ft9 in some scenes Tony who is 6ft 280 pounds mind you swarfs Christopher at times I say he is 5ft8 and very very lean compared to the rest of the cast probably weighs 150

This tiny guy is no more than 5'7". There ain't nothing tricky about it.

Hey rob, watch some of the sopranos. You have Tony Sirico pegged at 5'8 and you have Michael Imperioli pegged at 5'8 and Sirico is the tallest of the two by far throughout the series. one of them either deserves a downgrade or upgrade.

Hes an inch shorter then Drea De Matteo when shes in heels..I'd say 5'7 3/4.

5'7.5" for Michael.

Remember Toto Riina. Only 5'2" and he killed personally 40 people, ordered hundreds of hits and put all Sicily in a reign of fear and terror.

The problem is Imperioli has that crazy Kal Penn kind of hair that adds significant height to him. Despite that, he's always come off as pretty short, but that might be because of his small frame.

I just saw him on the subway and he was standing next to me waiting for the doors to open...I'm 5'9"..he was a good two inches shorter than me...we both had on sneakers...

he's 68 or 69 inches. i always love the people who are like "he's so short, 5'5" tops". you can tell by the size of his head and arms, he's not that short. who cares anyway...i came on here to see how tall mickey featherstone is because i was reading that he was bullied a lot, and i am amazed at how people are so obsessed with how tall celebs are. if they are short does that take away from their star power?? good grief.

ben kingsley is taller in the episosode. Kingsley is listed as 5 7 on here.

I seen him on conan o'brien and the first thing that i thought was, wow he is a runt, he looked about 5'6 and skinny.

5'7 1/2 seems that most accurate
PJ said on 6/Jul/06
Good call on the "hair helmet" that Michael wears ... 5'7 is probably an accurate assessment.
PJ said on 6/Jul/06
Drea lives in my neighborhood, she is approx 5'5.
PJ said on 6/Jul/06
I stood near Michael on a level concrete sidewalk in NYC, he is 5'8 at the very most.
jj said on 4/May/06
If you look in some Episodes he is wearing dress shoes and in some scenes his ankle is above even.
You Guy are telling me hes 5'6? I think he is 5'9 average anything above that is not credible.
Like I said the only way to get his real height is to compare.
[Editor Rob: I still wonder about this guy, I had another look and you know he still confuses me, but 5ft 6???...unless he wears 2 inch lifts...]

Seemed a tad tsller than Ben Kingsley ehile slouching, so they cannot be the same height.
Dagger said on 30/Apr/06
I would think about 5'6. With shoes about 5'7. But with the range of heights on The Sopranos he's hard to pin.
KrisC said on 5/Apr/06
He claims he is 5'9" (Denis Miller) I was the bartender for the sopranos party at The Garden City Hotel, I would say he is 5'7", no doubt
MeLiSsA said on 14/Mar/06
Maybe he wears lifts on the Sopranos to be taller than Drea because i know she wears really big heels but she does seem tall to me the more i look at her, like 5'6.
leonari said on 3/Mar/06
not true...he can very well be 5'6"-5'6.5"...He is short. Period.
TNTinCA said on 3/Mar/06
He is kind of hard to pin down but he does look quite a bit shorter than James Gandolfini when they are in scenes together on The Sopranos. Also, when Steven Buscemi was on the show, he appeared taller than Mike. I believe Steve is listed here as 5'8".

In the Sopranos Drea is mostly always in high heels. Sometimes her heels are as big as 5inch and is then only about 5'8 maby 5'9. Drea is probaly jusst 5'5 realisticly, puting the 1.5 inch heel on Michaels normal shoe and an inch on his hair he is maby just under 5'10? Hard to get him though?

from Gawker: In attendance last night at the 5 O’Clock Heroes show at Mercury Lounge was ex-Soprano and Law & Order type Michael Imperioli, chatting up a fairly attractive, if not a touch weathered, brunette at the bar (who upon later eavesdropping appears to be a hair stylist of sorts). He looked exactly like Michael Imperioli, but…mini. Or smaller than I expected. Probably 5’7”, maybe 5’9” if you include that hair helmet. He seemed really genuine and attitude-free, though, and rocked out requisitely during the gig and clapped after each song. I root for him now.

I just realized I meant BAD BOYS in my first post, not Blue Streak.
JCS said on 1/May/05
Yeah, watch Bad Boys.. He's NOT taller than Martin Lawrence who is around 5'7"

I met Michael Imperioli. I'm 5'9" and he was way shorter than I. I'll say 5'5"-5'6" tops!
