Not sure if he'd be just 6ft3...
James B says on 12/Mar/15
Rob might you give seagal current height 6'3 (191cm) and peak 6'4.25 (194cm)?
[Editor Rob: I might if I can have a look at some recent videos of him.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Mar/15
He can still pull off 6ft4 now. I think it's more a case of him being a bit over that mark in his prime. Dude's far from healthy and his weight gain has possibly led to a slight dip. I call BS on the 275lbs. He'd look more like Steve Austin at that weight. We're looking at 300lbs or more
HeightcrazyRed6ft says on 6/Mar/15
After Robs hint at Stone Cold Steve Austin site, I looked a bit up, still doing but I think its save to say he lost a bit and is somewhere between 63"-63.5" today...
184.3cm says on 6/Mar/15
Actually i thought that Glimmer Man was ok. There was a fair bit of humour in that movie. "You speak Russian?" (Proceeds to slam guy's head off car) "You speak good russian!".
Under Siege and Hard To Kill were his best though imo.

"Noone beats me in the kitchen" and " Hey private get my pies out the oven".
GP says on 5/Mar/15
LOL, that's funny Arch. He never felt humiliated when beating........ That's why people in Hollywood don't put him in movies. It's sad because he used to have potential 20 years ago, lol!
[Editor Rob: you have to be careful sometimes with accusations, just a reminder!]
Arch Stanton says on 4/Mar/15
He is definitely a mass of contradictions. I recently read Seagal "recently helped Russia's government relaunch a nationwide fitness programme ". You'd think he'd be superfit to have done that and look at him. 20 stone of lard LOL. How can you promote national fitness for the world's largest country like that and not feel a little humiliated in doing so!
James B says on 31/Dec/14
Steven Seagal fit guy? Maybe in the 80s but he weighs near 20 stone today
[Editor Rob: I mean he could still batter most guys, but the Seagal of today needs enemies to run up to him so he can knock them down.]
sixfooter says on 28/Dec/14
@Arch Stanton how bout this quote 'I missed maybe because I'm a bad shot or because I just want you to meet Tyrone' lol something like that
bud says on 13/Dec/14
rob his eyelevel is 12cm?
And he is 62 why he didint lost height?
[Editor Rob: it's possibly close to 12cm, I think there is a chance he's lost some...he's still a fit guy and as he aged he didn't go mad with stunts, enemies seemed to come up to him and he'd be more static and repel them. His body might not have taken a battering like a guy like chan's, who in 50's was still doing action acting that guys half his age would struggle with.]
Arch Stanton says on 3/Dec/14
Haha see 7:20 Click Here
Arch Stanton says on 3/Dec/14
Haha Rob, Seagal and Alison King were actually in a movie together in Submerged. I knew the film rang a bell! She was quite bad ass in it with a gun and arm wrestling and stuff. Not great. The worst Seagal movie I've seen I think is the one where he's an archaeologist in deepest Mongolia or something in Out for a Kill I think it was. With a name like Out for a Kill it's a sorry excuse for a movie. It should be classic Seagal with a name like that!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Nov/14
Out For Justice and Above The Law had some funny bits. Glimmer was a turd mountain. Same with On Deadly Ground.
Arch Stanton says on 28/Nov/14
There's a good one in On Deadly Ground when he has a fight with Mike Starr who pukes up and Seagal says something like "Urgh. Is that Halibut?". Hehe.
Arch Stanton says on 28/Nov/14
Yeah that's right. Glimmer was the one with the powdered deer penis wasn't it LOL. I thought that was a good film, I can't believe that and Out for Justice only have under 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Hell if a Seagal movie like Glimmer Man is worth only 13% what about ones like Pistol Whipped and Urban Justice!!!
[Editor Rob: Seagal's made some real dodgy straight to videos in the last decade that make Glimmer Man look like a work of Art...for what it is, I think it was decent effort and with a bit of humour thrown in raised it. I give it a 6!
Arch Stanton says on 26/Nov/14
Hehe Rob the Anna May Wong thing made me think, which is your favourite Seagal line? What's the most badass thing he ever said in a film? Here's some viable candidates off the top of my head!

a] "Nobody beats me in the kitchen"
b] "Yo, f**k nuts"
c] "If your daddy knew how stupid you were, he'd trade you in for a pet monkey"
d] "No, the one with the nipples you can dial a phone with"
e] "He's the kind of guy who would drink a gallon of gasoline so that he can p**s into your campfire."
f] "Tell Richie I'm gonna cut off his head and p**s down his throat!"

Out for Justice had a lot of great exchanges I think, particularly the pool scene which I think is definitely the pinnacle of his career!!
[Editor Rob: they are all funny quotes, actually Glimmer Man I think had a bit more humour to it than some of his films.

There was a couple, I forget which film something like "for 300,000 bux I'd f*** anything once." and "don't worry about the FBI...they couldn't find a hooker in a whorehouse anyway"

Aged 50 Danimal?
Danimal says on 6/Nov/14
Met him at my dojo in 2002. Was close to if not a full 6'5" then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Nov/14
There's no stuff of him pre-1988 other than a couple of pictures of him in some dojo in Japan training students. Nothing major to go by
Arch Stanton says on 6/Nov/14
He did actually look 6'5" ish in Ticker if Peter Greene is really 189.
Nico says on 4/Nov/14
Rost 194-195 cm
Mike G says on 31/Oct/14
He was built like a basketball player back in the 80s with long limbs. He looked deceptively big. By himself he looked skinny, probably still weighing 220 or more but being as tall as he was, you could tell the difference when near other people now he's easily 300.
James B says on 11/Oct/14
Dunno Arch MMA have brock lesner at 6'3
Arch Stanton says on 6/Oct/14
Not sure, but MMA listings are usually quite accurate I think as they're mostly barefoot all the time anyway.
James B says on 6/Oct/14
Was silva measured 6'2 early in the morning?
Arch Stanton says on 4/Oct/14
Not seen Seagal in a while James but last time I saw him he had a dodgy dyed goatee and honestly looked easily 6'4" next to Anderson Silva. I thought he looked between 1 and 2 inches taller than Wayans in Glimmer but I think he had on his typical thick boots.
James B says on 9/Sep/14
Arch Stanton says on 9/Sep/14
Nah, I think a peak Seagal was about as honest a 6'4" as you can get

I dunno Arch you should watch Glimmer Man and compare him next to Keenan Wayans because at times there looks very little between them.
James B says on 9/Sep/14
1.5 inches shorter than bill duke and struggling to looking close in height to Keenan ivory wayans.

6'4 is starting to look a bit suspect do you agree rob?
Arch Stanton says on 9/Sep/14
Nah, I think a peak Seagal was about as honest a 6'4" as you can get.
James B says on 8/Sep/14
Arch Stanton says on 8/Sep/14
In Exit Wounds he was easily an inch shorter than 6'4.5 listed Bill Duke which is confusing.. He also looked nearer 6'3" next to that 6'6" Canadian actor Matthew G. Taylor in it! Probably the shortest I've seen him look in that film..

Arch you think 6'3.5 could be possible for Seagal? Rob thinks he's closer to 194cm than 192cm but next to Keenan wayans struggled to look an inch taller at times. Seagal had great posture in that film as well compared to Keenan who slouches a lot.

I guess wayans could be 6'3 1/2?

Arch Stanton says on 31/Aug/14
Hehe, Rob I chopped the hair off yesterday. Without anything in it on the sides it was starting to look like a Dutch basketball player and I don't think the ponytail would be a good look! It is surprising though how after growing your hair for a long time how different your face and hair look when you get it cut, better I think.
[Editor Rob: Seagal will be disappointed.]
James B says on 1/Aug/14
Seagals looking old i must say. He looks about 2.5 inches taller than the 6'1 guy.

6'3.75 today
Peak 6'4.25 peak
SaveUsY2J says on 31/Jul/14

Rob, the guy on the left is a legit 6'1" in person, he's a former schoolmate. How tall does Seagal look in comparison? Bearing in mind he does look to be at a slight camera disadvantage.
[Editor Rob: I think Seagal can still look near 6ft 4 there]
James B says on 25/Jul/14
Looked 6'5 in Out for Justice.
Arch Stanton says on 16/Jul/14
Haha! Look at all that grease! I'd guess that was around Marked for Death period, pre Velcro transplant :-) He's almost saying "Nobody beats me in the kitchen". Yeah, the "tail" is probably best avoided for a lot of blokes! I can't imagine you ever growing one again! You could always go for that Argentinian footballer look with the shaved head and long tiny rat's tail though! You could poke G's eye out with that thing!
[Editor Rob: the tail is a disadvantage in a fight don't see chuck with a Ponytail ;)]
Arch Stanton says on 15/Jul/14
Hehe can you find a photo of Seagal with a ponytail to put up here to marvel at :-) Part Velcro!
Arch Stanton says on 15/Jul/14
Did you? Hehe, I'd never have guessed! I can't imagine you with hair going back! I think it might look good actually! Especially with the beard! Chuck Norris action jeans? LMAO!! I remember I used to have a really light faded pair of Lee jeans in the mid 90s which I call my Kurt Russell jeans!! I'm being honest now, I'm seriously thinking of going for the tail though!! I've been growing my hair out for a while now as it tends to curl up and go haywire when it's shorter and I got fed up of it. I've been growing it out as an experiment to see what happens and I find the longer it gets the better quality it goes and the straighter it begins to look. I've got that thick dark blond hair type, Ewan Mcgregor sort of thing. When I wash it with conditioner and slick it back and put a little gel in it when it dries it looks much better on top than it does when shorter. The weightier it goes, the tidier it looks. In many ways it's more manageable longer but it's beginning to reach the stage where it's starting to look like an 80s tennis player at the back and I'm thinking about going for a sleek tail to keep it all tidy!! I just don't want to be one of the douche guys who wear them to stand out, in my case it's really for maintenance reasons! I don't suit very short hair, it would be different if I had that thinning hair type or that really sharp short hair which looks good like Djokovic or somebody but I haven't. It suits me longer and the longer it gets the straighter and sleeker it begins to look! Plus I'm a guitarist so I have more of an excuse :-) It's just a lot of the famous guys who wear/have worn them are douchebags! Funny too that most of them are 6'3-6'4" guys! I think of it as similar to a beard in terms of maintenance, rather than being clean shaven and having to shave twice a day all the time which is mind numbingly annoying to just grow the full beard and keep it trimmed down. It's a lot easier to maintain! I don't wanting to be faffing about in front of a mirror with all that styling nonsense, and don't like skinheads, so I only have one option left, to keep it tidier in a long ponytail and never have to style it! I'm just concerned that society has a stigma against guys with ponytails!
[Editor Rob: I try to keep mine relatively short for easier maintenance and for dong this site, or I'd have done different styles, but not he ponytail again :)]
Arch Stanton says on 12/Jul/14
Rob do you think it takes a certain kind of fella to wear a ponytail? Do you think it screams arrogance or deep insecurity or what? I think it's probably a mixture of both. A lot of guys with ponytails or who had ponytails really come across as super arrogant stand out types. Seagal, Ibrahimovic, Andy Carroll and Darius Danesh for instance come across as about as arrogant as you can get, and of course G is about as insecure as you can get. In fairness though if you have a certain hair type which is really difficult and messy to style when shorter and looks crap shaved then it might look tidier than when shorter and actually less maintenance! It does suit a lot of the tall and dark types, although a lot of the Argentine and Italian footballer types who wear them seem really greasy.
[Editor Rob: hey buddy, I used to have a Ponytail at Uni :) Of course I was a dedicated student and after a year of having it thought I better go shorter...although I loved twiddling with my curls!

I actually gave myself an undercut style back when Van Damme had long hair, I think around the Hard Target film. I also had a make of jeans that I called 'Chuck Norris action Jeans'...]
iyolo says on 25/Jun/14
He looked at least 194 (6.4 1/2) next to self claimed 6.6ft famous bulgarian host Slavi Trifonov (although he had some bulky shoes).He is at least 300 pounds too :(
Arch Stanton says on 15/Jun/14
Rob can you mention Executive Decision, Out for Justice, Hard to Kill, On Deadly Ground, Firedown Below, The Glimmer Man and Exit Wounds?

@James. A lot of people talk about people who work out excessively being vain and egotistical but in Seagal's case I think it is actually the opposite and part of the problem that he sees himself as superior so doesn't care if he is overweight and not motivated to "prove" himself sort of thing. He's clearly very comfortable with who he is. Still, being a martial artist you'd really expect him to be in some sort of shape.
James B says on 2/Jun/14
Seagal was naturally slight in frame in the 80s he could do with getting down to 13 stone 5 at the age he is now. A tall guy at minimum 193cm yes but he clearly did not have a large mesomorphic frame but more ecotomorph (narrow shoulders and long lanky limbs in Nico). Although being a lethal weapon at his age and height weighing 20 stone is VERY unhealthy.
Arch Stanton says on 1/Jun/14
BTW in Ticker Seagal had like 3 inches on Peter Greene who claims like 6 ft 3 or something! In Under Siege 2 I think Seagal only looked about 2 inches taller than him though. I think Greene is more like 6'2" though, he doesn't look 6'3". Seagal must have had generous footwear in Ticker.
Arch Stanton says on 1/Jun/14
The thing is with a name like "Out for a Kill" you're expecting early 90s bad ass action with the witty one liners. What you get is an utter disappointment cashing in on his earlier credible action movies.
RisingForce says on 30/May/14
Yeah, I think the worst I've seen was Attack Force where Seagal's voice was dubbed at times, but wasn't at other times! I saw it on cable one night a few years ago around 3 AM, but even at that time, it was a regret!
Arch Stanton says on 28/May/14
Yeah I agree Rising, anything up to Exit Wounds is great, after that it went sour. I've seen half a dozen of his post 2001 films and almost all were identical LOL. The worst one, Out for a Kill I think he was an archaeologist or something, that's goes down among the worst 10 films I've seen in the last five years.It was a shocker. I'm actually in the mood for some Seagal right now, I think I'll watch Ticker, that was 2001...
Arch Stanton says on 28/May/14
Here's a slow mo of him in early 80s Click Here Quick even in slow mo.

ian c. says on 24/May/14
Fast? When was this gent ever fast? Not on his feet.

That's a dumb comment. What on earth has reflex action got to do with how fats you can run a mile or something?? Yes, he did run like a girl in Above the Law but he had extremely fast reflexes back in the 80s. Watch one of his early aikido demonstrations. You wouldn't stand a chance against him, even today, despite his weight he's still got it. He admitted he was way too tall to be ideal for aikido but despite his size he's very quick in small movements.
ian c. says on 27/May/14
In my previous post I wrote "marital arts" when I meant "martial arts." These are two different arts. My own wife is proficient in both, but only one at a time.
ian c. says on 25/May/14
Okay, okay, the man does show impressive hand speed. But you notice, Seagal is the only marital arts hero guy whose character regularly uses guns. And I'm saying, you can infer from that something about his capacities. That is, he's a lot more practical minded than those other dummies who just use fists and feet.
RisingForce says on 25/May/14
ian c., Seagal uses Aikido which I believe is about self-defense and using their attack against them, which is why you see him waiting for someone to attack him in the movies. Personally, I'm a big fan of martial arts and action movies, and did generally enjoy Seagal's movies from Above The Law through the early 90's, but I can't watch his straight to video stuff from the past decade. It's unfortunate, but he's just gotten far too out of shape, and not only are the movies not comparable to his early ones, but neither are the fight scenes, and lets it face it, Seagal was in movies because of the fight scenes, not because he's Al Pacino.
ian c. says on 24/May/14
Fast? When was this gent ever fast? Not on his feet. In Above the Law he has an extended running scene, and he runs like a whooping crane. Tom Cruise could run by him going backwards. Also, his fighting style is an odd kind of flim flammery where he stands still and waits for somebody to punch him, and then throws or countersmacks the victim, who should have just used a gun. It doesn't look especially athletic, like the balletic fighting of Bruce Lee or Jean Claude van Damme, who liked to kick people in the face. Also, he's fat now, but in Above the Law he seems more thin than muscular, with narrow shoulders and a shallow chest. It wouldn't surprise me if he got fat in a failed effort to compensate for his lack of muscular bulk.
[Editor Rob: in terms of martial arts moves, not running speed...although he still could probably move 3 times as fast in 80's as he would today.]
Arch Stanton says on 21/Feb/14
It made me laugh in an interview he had a few years back when one of the interviewers gave him a ribbing about his weight gain and asked him if he was still as fast as he was 10 years ago and Seagal said "faster". You should have seen the look on his face, he was fuming!! A bit lanky legged in Above the Law but he looked damn good back then. Immaculately dressed in Italian designer clothing too. He quickly went downhill from there, he must have gained 20-30 pounds even by Out for Justice just 2 or 3 years later. 6'4.5" peak I think. He looked very Italian looking back then but nowadays he really looks more eastern Russian to me, which he actually does have heritage form on his father's side.
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 20/Feb/14
Maybe he's 6ft 5 in some dress shoes or trainers, but yeah strong 6ft 4 at peak i definetly agree with rob, seagal is at least 6ft 4 flat today i think when he will be in his late 60s im sure he will dip under 6ft 4 and be in the 6ft 3-3.75 range.
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 19/Feb/14
I think Seagal is still 6ft 4 today could be a few mms under or a fraction under it a worst, but he's a big guy you would not want to pick a fight with thats for sure, looked very tall in Out for Justice and did actually look 6ft 5 you could also argue 194cm for his prime 194-195cm is a possibility.
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 19/Feb/14
Rob do you think Steven Seagal could have been 6ft 5 in his prime like around the 80's-90's, he did look 6ft 5 in Out for Justice. Very big tall guy you wouldn't wanna mess with.
[Editor Rob: the Seagal of the 80's and early 90's could move...I mean you wouldn't mess with him as he was fast. The Seagal of the 2000's seemed to be more static and enemies would just run up to him without much movement. I don't think he was a real 6ft 5, but a strong 6ft 4 range]
dmeyer says on 1/Feb/14
To me this guy looked over 6'4 because of 1.3-1.7in heels he wears a lot, 6'4 flat fits him
Arch Stanton says on 31/Jan/14
Seagal's one of those guys who should never grow facial hair. He looks weird with a goatee, doesn't look right on him.
James B says on 20/Jan/14
Rob do you think in the 1970s he might have measured 6'4 1/2 on a good day?
[Editor Rob: a fraction over not impossible]
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 14/Jan/14
He looked really obese in Pistol Whipped, now in 2014 he still could do with losing some pounds but hes not as fat as he was in that film hes still a badass though. He could still be 6ft 4 today maybe a few mms under it.
Stretch says on 5/Jan/14
Steven (the human cartoon) Seagal was probably a shade over 6' 4" while fighting fearsome foes decades ago at the Japanese Deer Park and Village. He is perhaps a shade under that height now. Seagal seems to tower over most in Hollywood since a majority of actors are not that tall. Among many athletes however, the Karate Kid on doughnuts is dwarfed which seems to make make Steven Seagal extremely uncomfortable.

Here is a memorable photo of Steven Seagal with 7' 1" Shaquille o' Neal. Note the very elevated high-heel boots and rigid stance of tiny Seagal alongside Shaq. Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Dec/13
Rob, do you think Seagal might've claimed his morning height?

Definitely a legit 6ft4 in the 80s and 90s.
[Editor Rob: possibly or in sneakers height.]
Rusty says on 18/Sep/13
6'4.5" peak. Looked 6'4" in machete
jasperwazup says on 6/Sep/13
I buy the 6'4'' as his height late in the day. He does tower over many of his co-stars and villain actors. I can only recall in the movie Above The Law there being a male co-star around 6'2'' and similar in build to Seagal. Van Damme was never 5'10'' maybe 5'9.25''176cm. Seagal called Van Damme an "ant" in his reality cop show.
Elfoersaan says on 9/Aug/13
6ft 5in could have very been his height straight out of bed 30 years ago. He surely towers over every single person he stands with. Most people don't take him serious and they are right he's a fat, egotistical, delusional walrus... but I love him for it. Hope he'll be in The Expendables 3.
zzz says on 8/Aug/13
he looks really tall. Just saw a commercial with him and anderson silva who is 1.88cm. he is 6ft4 indeed

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Aug/13
Maybe 194cm is closer, Rob?

you said that he might edge out Neeson
Elfoersaan says on 15/Jul/13
Like I stated before Chan was definitely over 5ft 9in 30+ years ago. I remember a video from the '80s when Chan was in Japan at the time were he looked like a giant compared to his 5ft - 5ft 2in Japanese female fans. His way above average height for men in China three decades ago, his huge head and hands are probably the result of the 12 month pregnancy of his mother. He just looks short because of his bigger bone structure. A 176 cm mark in his heyday seems fair enough to me.
adam LZ says on 11/Jul/13
well i say hes 6"5-6"7 because if anyone of you had seen the movie my giant of gheorge muresan a 7"7 basketball player from NBA..steven seagal had part in that movie and in a scene the movie shows steven seagel near gheorge muresan..and to beleive gheorge muresan looked just 1 feet taller than steven not i say steven is 6"7 tall as he looked just 1 feet shorter than muresan which is 7"7 tall ;)
Cameron murray says on 8/Jul/13
Fair guess I always thought he was 6'2 so when I saw 6'4 I was shocked
He looks 6'3 most of the time I guess 6'4 in his prime maybe at a push
I'm no expert I've not seen enough of his films to have a accurate opinion on this one
But Jeff goldblum is not 6'4.5 he is barely 6'3 I mean Jeremy clarkson was the same height as him
naidster2000 says on 8/Jul/13
Damn I love a tall, dark, handsome man :D

for me is maximum 6'2 .

LOL, sure and Anderson Silva is 5'11.5".
shipnut says on 8/Jun/13
In my photos with him he is inches taller than I am and I am 6'3".
Frost says on 1/Jun/13
he was 6'5" in his prime. Now he's about 6'4".
gian92 says on 10/May/13
for me is maximum 6'2 .
justin says on 26/Apr/13
6' 4" peak
Anonymous says on 29/Mar/13
6'4 without question. Stature of that kind combined with world class Aikido expertise makes him a real force to be reckoned with, both on and off camera.

How he stacks up (approx.)

Chevy Chase: 6'4(193 cm) peak
Snoop Dogg: 6'4(193 cm)
Steven Seagal: 6'4.25(193 cm)peak
Liam Neeson: 6'4.5(194 cm) peak
Jeff Goldblum: 6'4.5(194 cm) peak
Randy Quaid: 6'4.5(194 cm)
Tim Robbins: 6'5.25(196 cm)
Doc says on 20/Mar/13
I just saw him in Russia basically towering over the Russian fellows ushering him around.
James says on 25/Feb/13
Take into account that he is titling his head in that photo with Michale he still looks 3 inches taller too me. If he was not titling his head he would look 3.5 inches bigger in that photo which again adds up too 6'4 for steven.
Arch Stanton says on 25/Feb/13
Danilo018 says on 24/Feb/13
It's one photo Danilo. Try looking at the barefoot pics next to 6'2 Anderson Silva, Seagal has 2-3 inches on him. Nobody thinks Seagal was under 6'4" peak!!

Here is picture with Michael Jai White Click Here . This site lists Michael at 184. Based on that Seagal looks at best 6'3''(and that's being generous) on this photo. As you can see on this photo Seagal is still slim, so he is close to his peak heigh, not to mention that was movie from 2001, Seagal was 49 - so in age in which he shouldn't have a drastic heigh loss. Anyway it's highly possible that Seagal was barefooted (since he was in aikido kimono) and that Michael had sneakers or that Seagal had traditional Japanese sandals for men. Even in that case Michael would have a slighty advantage. Personally i think Seagal max was around 192cm 6'3.5" to be more precise.

6'4 not 6'5.
James says on 23/Feb/13
A man I would say who does not look very tall is Hugh Jackman who at times can look 6'1.
Arch Stanton says on 23/Feb/13
A man who never dips below 6'3" and upwards I consider very tall range. Meaning that they're 6'4" morning. Sacha Baron Cohen you think doesn't look very tall?? One of my old managers is 6'3" range and my mother perceives him as very tall and thought he was near 6'5". Seagal without a doubt would be considered very tall and big by most of the population. Even he considers himself too tall ideally for aikido.

Again 6-3 isn't very tall . 6-3 is tall very tall starts at 6-5 6-6 .
Arch Stanton says on 22/Feb/13
Lillo Thomas says on 20/Feb/13
6-3 isn't very tall . 6-3 is tall . Very tall starts at 6-6 6-7 . 6-6 is a very very rare height . You can spot several 6-3 guys in large crowds . A legit 6-6 is very hard to find .

So Ralph Moeller is just tall not very tall at 6'5.5". Hmmm. I think we have a word for that James eh, "poppycock", or "balderdash"...
James says on 20/Feb/13
Nonsense 6'3 or 6'4 is the start of very tall. 6'6 and 6'7 are extremely tall heights.

Seagal I would say who was a legit 6'4 in his prime looked very tall in his films not gigantic though but you could tell he was more than just a regular tall guy.
Lillo Thomas says on 20/Feb/13

James says on 18/Feb/13
I don't think seagal was ever quite 6'4-6'5 more like just 6'4 flat.

Liam Neeson and goldblum would have edged seagal out at there peaks. Neeson could look shorter than seagal because of his posture.
Arch Stanton says on 16/Feb/13
Yeah but nobody, not even a 6'4"-6'5" guy should be near 300 pounds, its obese. He could do with losing 50 pounds.
James says on 12/Feb/13
Well I guess the older you get the harder it is too keep slim.

Strange arch a young clint Eastwood was near 6'4 and very slim yet he never looked 6'5. I bet a peak clint and guy henry would been dead on the same in height. A peak seagal could have edged out Clint and guy henry.
Arch Stanton says on 11/Feb/13
Yeah he does. What I don't get about Seagal is that he is regularly practicing aikido and training fighters and stuff, you'd naturally expect him to be in shape surrounded by fitness all of the time. Not to mention seeming quite a vain guy, not sure how he is content to remain near 300 pounds. He's obviously self-conscious of it, in interviews he puts his hand over his belly and wears a big coat to try to hide it.
James says on 8/Feb/13
Yeah arch like how guy henry looks 6'5 but is actually 6'3.5
Arch Stanton says on 7/Feb/13
What with the squint? LOL.Dunno Brandon a legit 6'3.5" guy in public can start to stand out as very tall and could probably pull off looking 6'5" to some people if skinny and in good footwear.
Jamesy says on 1/Feb/13
Start of very tall is 6'3.

Arch maybe seagal is trying too copy Clint Eastwood?
Brandon says on 30/Jan/13
I dont see the term "very tall" starting at anything less then 6'4, however theres so many people around that height these days, that I rekon you could get away easily with starting "very tall" at 194cm or a solid 6'5, at a push even 6'6.
Arch Stanton says on 26/Jan/13
Yeah Seagal had on big ass cowboy boots in that movie, he did actually look 6 ft 6 in boots in that movie. He had 3 inches on Seagal in that film, but I've seen a photo where he had 4 inches on Seagal.

Hehe James I'm trying to grow my hair at the moment. If I don't wash it and gel it back my hair ends up looking like Dirty Harry, but when I wet and slick it back with my forehead reminds me of Seagal LOL, especially when I'm wearing a black jumper. I could always grow a ponytail and start wearing Chinese jackets and start squinting heh!
Jamesy says on 14/Jan/13
Connor he wore cowboy boots next schawarz
Connor 183cm says on 13/Jan/13
Rob how tall do you think Scott Schwarz looks next to Steven Seagal in Fire down below? Hes the huge bald guy right?.
[Editor Rob: he can look 6ft 8, sometimes a 6ft 9 guy]
Arch Stanton says on 11/Jan/13
Rob, do you think then 194cm might be more accurate for him? OK he's not 6'5" but I think he's looked 194cm throughout most of his career even accounting for boots. If he edges out Neeson who himself claims 6'4 and a wee bit...
Outlaw says on 9/Jan/13
Here is the picture, Rampage: Click Here

If Neeson straightened out, they be about the same height, give or take.

I'd say 6'4.5" for both of them in their heyday.
Trent says on 19/Dec/12
Anderson Silva is listed at 6'2, and here with Seagal that would make him 6'4 or so. Click Here

If he claimed 6'5 as well maybe he peaked at 6'4.5? Apparently he edged out Liam Neeson, who himself claimed to be "6'4 and a wee bit".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
I vaguely recall him looking a wee bit taller than Liam Neeson. but I can't find the picture anywhere.

But I just realised that Seagal, Neeson, Goldblum and Hasselhoff turned 60 this year (all born in 1952) and have probably lost a bit of height due to age.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
Rob, you in your opinion would be taller Neeson or Seagal?
[Editor Rob: they're so close, but seagal maybe by a small amount]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12

Looks taller than 6ft4.25(194cm) MCD
Arch Stanton says on 3/Dec/12
Click Here

Pause at 3:27. Look at the height difference between Seagal and the other guys!!
James says on 14/Nov/12
Maybe Anderson Silva James is more 6'3?
Arch Stanton says on 14/Nov/12
He still looks 194cm next to Anderson Silva James.
James says on 13/Nov/12
But rob u said seagal at 60 can still look a big 6'4 at 60.
[Editor Rob: yeah he can still look it, so a small fraction isn't going to be noticeable.]
Dmeyer says on 12/Nov/12
Rob how come a Guy like seagal in bad shape and very tall didnt loose height by 60 while Bruce Willis whos barely above average droped 0.5 in
[Editor Rob: it is possible seagal has lost a fraction aswell ]
James says on 12/Nov/12
That's an insult too seagal arch lol

Would you bet money on seagal and Vince Vaughn measuring close in height?
Arch Stanton says on 9/Nov/12

Hey James I found a guy who has similar features to Seagal, same long big ass head and must surely be around his size and weight, the guy on the left is 5'11" ish.
James says on 15/Oct/12
Maybe he's not 6'4 if he wears lifts
Ice says on 13/Oct/12
lol why would a 6'4 man wear lifts ?? To appear as 6'7 ?
James says on 5/Oct/12
Could look anywhere 192-194cm compared too Kennan ivory wayans
Shaun says on 5/Oct/12
Yes, he does look 6'4.5" range a lot but the likelihood is he's in big boots with footwear advantage.
Miiiiiiighty_l- says on 4/Oct/12
Always looked a solid 195cm.
There is a picture of him and UFC Champ Jon Jones who many suspect to be closer to 6'5 than 6'4 floating around, and they are the same height or Seagal is even a tad taller..

ps: here we go : Click Here
Shaun says on 26/Sep/12
I think Rob's taking into account the fact that Seagal usually wears big boots/cowboy boots for not listing him at 194-195cm. He can look 6'6" ish in boots so barefoot 6'4"-6'4.5" seems likely, he certainly looked that range in Fire Down Below next to Scott Schwarz who is around 6 ft 9 in shoes. He doesn't look below 6'4.5" next to Silva barefoot though but Silva's 6'2" might be rounding up of course.
matt678 says on 10/Sep/12
looks a legit 6 foot 4 mabye even taller.....
Shaun says on 24/Aug/12
the shredder says on 23/Aug/12
I know people will bash me , but Seagal is a legit 6'5 , my friend who is a measured 6'1 looked like a kid next to him in his photo and he said he looked 6'6 to him in cowboy boots .

Probably so as cowboy boots do give 1.5-2 inches. He would be 6'6" ish in them. He's a strong 6'4" I think although one exception to the rule is that he was shorter than a 6'4.5" listed actor in Exit Wounds and looked about 6'3" in comparison, but then again he also looked 6'3" in comparison to the 6'6" guy in that film.
Shaun says on 22/Aug/12

Yes they're wearing the same clothes, both barefoot. Seagal looks 194-95cm in comparison to 188cm Anderson Silva. I believe his height is legit as they are more likely to measure the fighters barefoot as they usually are.
Shaun says on 22/Aug/12
Rob do you think peak Seagal might measure 6'5" out of bed barefoot?
[Editor Rob: quite possible]
Shaun says on 22/Aug/12
Click Here

With 6'2" Anderson Silva. I think this was taken after the instruction video which is on youtube; both are barefoot. He does actually look 6'4.5" here and surprisingly hasn't lost height seemingly yet, although like Lundgren and Arnie he was never a weightlifter.
Shaun says on 5/Aug/12
Anonymous1 says on 17/Jun/12
He's a notorious lift wearer, check out his footwear in A Dangerous Man, they are elavator boots, I can show you the exact brand if anyone wants proof

Lifts I doubt, but he usually wears Timberland type boots/cowboy boots which makes him appear probably 6'5-6'6" in them in his films. Proportionally you can tell he's genuinely as big as 6-4, 6-5 is pushing it though. But I would agree that for such a big guy he does seem height conscious as John Wanye was and always wanted to appear as big as possible.
Shaun says on 5/Aug/12
He still looks a solid 6'4" next to Anderson Silva barefoot Connor. At peak I'd say maybe 194cm barefoot.. Somebody said here once swore they'd met him at an aikido dojo on the mat where he was giving a seminar or something and said he looked 6'4"-6'5" range.
Connor says on 25/Jul/12
Rob do you still believe that Steven is a strong 6ft 4 today at 60 years old?
[Editor Rob: I think he still looks that big, although anybody can shrink. ]
Dmeyer says on 23/Jul/12
H wears 1.5-1.6 in at Times and mostly 1.3 in type h isnt the converse type of Guy but n lift

Shaun says on 12/Jun/12
Yeah he had low muscle mass for an action hero. WTF 140 pounds in ABove the Law?? 10 stone for a solid 6'4" guy?? That would be vitrually anorexic. 190 pounds minimum. Today add a good 100 pounds on that. Peak I'd say 6'4.5".
adam says on 9/Jun/12
Seagal was definitely at least 6-4 in his prime but yes James, he had a small frame for his height. Very narrow shoulders and no chest. Watch Above The Law.
James says on 6/Jun/12
I've seen Seagal in a few of his movies.He use to be skinny but now he's a lot bigger but he still kicks a**.I'he heard he was 6'4" tall and 380 lbs. I think he was 190 lbs. in Above The Law. He might be big but I think he's still small framed.
Big Mike says on 27/Jan/12
He is 6ft4 and back in the day he was a twig in like Above the Law he was probably like 140-160 now he's like well over 200 pounds probably like from 240-265 but is still fairly fast despite this weight gain can't really run anymore plus he's like 60 he's incrediable in the films being able to destroy guys taller and heavier than him like in Above the Law there was a guy who pushed him for messin with his friend the guy was like 6ft7 and like 300 pounds one punch knocked him out 6ft4 def
Silent d says on 23/Jan/12
6 foot 4. He is huge. He never looked skinny or small framed even in his early movies. He is heavily built. His screen presence is incredible.
