6'5" could be a conservative listing but I don't see him as over 6'5.5". I have a hard time buying he's actually taller than someone like Nonso Anozie.

Yeah, he never looks 6'6, he can look only 6'4.5 at times but maybe 6'5 range is a "safe" bet... His claim seems another "g-claim"! Rob, what about a downgrade to 6'5 flat?

He does look very similar proportionally Sam to Clive Mantle who is 6'5.5".

With Travolta Sam yeah he could be a smidge under 6'6 and 197 I see between 5 and 6 inches. He definitely doesn't look as low as 6'5" flat though, anything from 6'5.5-6'6 is about right. Possible he got measured first thing at 6'6.5 for basketball, they usually get the athletes up at the crack of dawn don't they? I've seen a few videos of them doing the measuring.

Rob can you add a photo and "best known for directing films such as The Notebook, Unhook the Stars, She's So Lovely, John Q, Alpha Dog and My Sister's Keeper and for appearing in films such as Face/Off, The Wraith, Life, Class of 1999 II: The Substitute and The Astronaut's Wife.

Yeah its totally puzzling. His mother was not very tall but taller than most women in her generation as for his father pretty average at his time. I dont understand how a basketball player comes along all the way. If he was about 5'11-6'0 i could understand he got his mothers genes but this is freakish.

John could seem bigger on camera because he was kind of an intense and imposing presence. He really wasn't that tall, Husbands is a good one for comparison. He's clearly shorter than Ben Gazzara and taller than Peter Falk. I think he could seem 5'8" but 5'7" is probably closer to the truth.

Rob, any chance you could add John Cassavetes?
[Editor Rob: can't remember much of how he has looked as films he was in I've seen long ago.]

Next to Scott Bakula, John Travolta, Nicolas Cage, and Justin Timberlake, he looks no more than 5 inches taller IMO than these six foot range guys. I'd guess he'd be a similar amount taller than Ryan Gosling and Denzel Washington but I can't find any shots of them despite their collaborations. I think he's closer to a strong 6'5". Is it possible that the 6'6.5" was in boots?
Arch Stanton says on 14/Dec/13
Mm actually looking at his posture it looks like he got his knees bent and shrinking down probably 6 inches.

Rob how tall is the guy next to him here?? Click Here

Gena's not particularly tall, but if you look at her face and proportions you can tell she probably came from a tall family. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the men in her family were well over 6'. Either way it's extraordinary for a 5 ft 7 father to have a 6'6" son, especially as the mother isn't very tall!
Arch Stanton says on 10/Sep/13
Yes, it's possible that Cassevetes was the runt of the litter and sort of like Kiefer and Donald Sutherland and could have had a tall brother or father and the gene is in there somewhere. There was a kid when I went to Sardinia once who had a similar height father and his mother said he was 6'6" and looked it easily, in fact by the end of the holiday he looked nearer 6'7" to me, he was still growing I think! His father was 5'7 ish but he clearly got his height from his mother's side, she was about 6'0.

Rob how does a 5 ft 7 man a 5 ft 6 woman produce a 6 ft 6 son? It's pretty crazy.
[Editor Rob: maybe there's a tall uncle/relative in there somewhere? Or when gene mixing, the mix and mutation helped?]
Sam says on 29/Jul/13
Don't have a clip but next Scott Bakula to Quantum Leap, there's pretty no way he's 6'6" unless Scott Bakula is a strong 6'1" (which isn't the case). This guy is 6'5" IMO. Also, it would interesting to see his dad, 5'7"ish John Cassavetes added.

A guy like Tim Robbins looks taller in photos. Nick Cassavetes isnt that much taller (as a legit 6'6 guy should be) than today max 6'0 John Travolta. Tim Robbins makes 6'0 Edward Norton look a midget...
