I think this is accurate. He towers everyone on "The Middle".

There's a scene from an episode of "The Middle" where the Heck family is trying to jump up and reach some piece of paper between two rooms to see how high they can jump. Flynn's character wins, and Patricia Heaton's character is like "Well, that's not fair. You're like 17 feet tall." Obviously an exaggeration, but either 6'4" or 6'5" is believable for him.

I agree with @Christian-196.2(6'5.25") while he looked a legit 6'5" in scrubs he looks 6'4.5"-6'4.75" in the middle now

I don't think neil flynn could get up taller than tim robbins. They're just about the same height @ 195cm

Looks a bit under this today...could have dropped a fraction, Rob?

"Neil Flynn's Height is 6ft 4 5/8th in (194.6 cm)"
"Peak Height was 6ft 5in (195.6 cm)"
It's not uncommon for tall guys in their 50's to lose 1cm. Vince Vaughn is only 46 years old and already has lost a half inch.

Flynn is same height as tim robbins looking eye to eye and head to head close up
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 12/Apr/16
Could be more 6'4" than 5.

Incorrect, just saw Drew Carey show season 4 episode 11 and Niel Flynn guest starring was obviously taller than Ryan Stiles...was skeptical but really focused on footwear ...

I think he could be 6'5.25". It's still considered 6'5" but a lot of guys that height seem to omit the half or quarter inches.

Well, he looks 6'4" in Scrubs.

He ducks under the front door on The Middle, he's definitely 6ft5 barefoot. Like I said with other tall guys like John Cleese who does a long step through a door with and a little duck. This guy ducks his head down through a standard door. Guys this tall are taller than your standard 6ft6 door frame with average shoes on. Now one guy here who claimed they were 6ft5 said they never duck under door framd must be less than 6ft5 or 6ft5 with shoes on.

Saw him in Hollywood, I'm 6'10 and he was up to my nose so yeah 6'5 seems right
J man said on 5/Mar/14
Saw the middle and guessed he was around 6.1 or 6.5
Mathew said on 29/Dec/13
I'd guess between 6'4" and 6'5".
Jimmy said on 19/Aug/13
Just saw scrubs i think he is a legit 6'5.
Perhaps in his youth he was even 6'5.5.
Zach Braff (5'11.5) seems to be just below his eye level of him and John C Mcginley (6'1) a little bit above it.
ken said on 13/Jun/13
he isn't anything under 198 cm, 6 foot guys are darfs next to him and john c mcginley who is a stron 6.1 guy also seems just at the eye level of him, so it puts him to be 198 cm tall
Mr. R said on 22/May/13
Saw him in Hwood 6-5
JP said on 21/May/13
Walked up to him at a Dodger game, definitely 6'5"
James said on 22/Feb/13
Seems a legit 6'5
Mr. R said on 27/Nov/11
I saw him a few years ago in Hwood talking with former SNL star Tim Meadows, and he seemes about 6-5. Tim, on the other hand was 5-8 at best.

Just saw him in 'Scrubs' standing right next to the 5'7-1/2" Ken Jenkins, and Flynn looked MORE than a foot taller. I realize he's not 6'8", but maybe 6'6".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/11
All of the Scrubs cast with the exception of John C. McGinley are listed correctly.
James said on 10/Jun/11
In the middle he does look 6'5
rob89 said on 24/May/11
Looks around 6'4.5" - 6'5" to me, i don't think he's as tall as 6'6 though. Just because he's very tall doesn't mean he has to claim a shorter height than he really is. He could simply be honest about his height, even though that's not too common a thing, especially among celebrities. A legit 6'4.5" - 6'5" guy is huge anyway, and can very easily fool most people into thinking he's 6'6.

Had a feeling he was exactly 6'5, turned out to be right.
gareth said on 26/Feb/11

Funny because he seems to have almost a head in scrubs on Zach Braff who is 6ft. It`s questionable he`s only 6-5.
If so he would be over 6'9''...
James said on 15/Dec/10
Could be like between 6'4 and 6'5 today. 6'5 for though at his peak.
Moke said on 13/Dec/10
I honestly think that's too low for him. Otherwise everyone else on scrubs would be an inch shorter which I doubt. McGinley for example never ever is only 11cm shorter than Flynn but on the other side he looks 6'1 next to everyone else. Btw: doorways are 6'7 (at least in europe they are) :)
jtm said on 29/Oct/10
nah 6'5 flat is accurate.

CDR, I went to Bradley myself. He hung out a log with someone named Greg. You would know who I'm talking about.
Karen said on 9/Jul/07
Were you in the same fraternity?

CDR JOE, I went to Bradley myself. He used to hang out with Greg all the time. They were in the same Fraternity. Wondered what ever happened to Greg. Just not saying his name on here but you'll know who I'm talking about.
Mr. R said on 22/Jun/07
I saw at The Improv in Hollywood one night. He was no shorter than 6-5. He was also talking with Tim Meadows from Saturday Night Live (And "The Ladies' Man, Yeaaaah")Tim is about 5-8 himself.
CDR Joe said on 19/Jun/07
I was a beer drinking buddy of his in college, he goes at least 6'5".
Tim said on 29/May/07
I think he must wear pretty high boots on scrubs because he looks at least 6'6" a lot of the time to me, when you compare him to John McGinley who is 6'1" - 2"
suresh said on 23/Feb/07
this dude looked 6'5 when i saw him in LA, he's about two inches taller than myself, 6'3 and i noticed he was wearing dressy shoes with about 1.5 inch thick heel. still a big dude at 6'5
Allison said on 19/Jan/07
I think his shoes give him that extra inch or so. He's one tall drink of water!
And yeah the ladies are thirsty! Bongggg

I went to high school with Neil. I am 6'4" and Neil is an inch or two taller than me. He was funny back then and funnier now. Very nice guy, great family.
J. said on 19/Oct/06
In all fairness, he can actually come across as 6'6" on many episodes of Scrubs. Zach Braff and Donald Faison raise their necks a considerate amount to look up to him. But in pics, he can look more 6'4"-6'5"-ish. Strange.
Anonymous said on 6/Oct/06
he looks 195cm 2 me
Mr. R said on 25/Jun/06
I saw Neil a few weeks ago talking to Tim Meadows from Saturday Night Live outside a Hollywood Comedy Club. This is the second time I have seen him, and he is not 6'6". Again, he is between 6'4" and 6'5".
lappers84 said on 7/Mar/06
when standing next to John c mcginley he looks about 3 inches taller so i'd go with 6'5
K said on 24/Nov/05
if you look at that picture Neil is slouched Zach is full height and the cameras taken at an angle givin zach the advantage
Mr. R said on 30/Jun/05
I saw him on Hollywood Boulevard. He is between 6-4 and 6-5.
Mr. R said on 17/Jun/05
I saw him in Hollywood one night, and he was definitely taller than I expected. But I think this is too high. I think that he is between 6-4 and 6-5.
