He looked 6'1 in Scream 2

Shots of him side by side with Conan O'brien in this clip. Both are in relatively equal footwear.

Another pic of Olyphant with Powers Boothe, who is 6'1" to 6'1.5" according to celebheights.

Hey Rob, could you weigh in on these? He may very well be 6'0". However, that pic of him with Powers Boothe definitely might contradict his claim. Here are some pics of him at promotional events for Deadwood. I think 5'11.75" may be more suitable for him.

Editor Rob: the odds are likely that he is a bit shy of 6ft
Giuseppe said on 18/Apr/16
Someone could post the picture that portrays Timothy Olyphant beside Titus Welliver (180 cm)?
Giuseppe said on 11/Apr/16
11th episode of the fifth series the chief marshal Ed Kirkland (Shashawnee Hall) that replaces Art Mullen is high 1.85 and next to Timothy (Boots) seems higher than a inch, check and let me know. Thank you
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 9/Apr/16
He looked at least 6ft in 'The Girl Next Door'.
datguy said on 25/Mar/16
or at least 5'11.75 it's obvious he isn't quite the full 6 foot
datguy said on 25/Mar/16
yea he's clearly at least an inch shorter than 6 foot tall neal mcdonough in those pictures the guy below me postedbut he does like slightly taller than bruce willis . Rob I think 5'11.5 might be a better listing for him unless you can explain those pictures he posted.
Justanotherguy said on 10/Mar/16
I don't believe this guy is a full 6ft. Hes somewhere between 5'11 and 6ft. He only looks 1 inch taller than 5'10 Walter Goggins in Justified, and that's with him wearing cowboy boots.

Here he looks one inch (maybe a little more) taller:

183-184cm range IMO. Looks a stronger 6ft than weak. If he's 182cm then Bruce Willis is closer to 5ft10 which is unlikely
Sam said on 14/Oct/15
Looked maybe closer to 182 cm during his brief turn on The Office, Rainn Wilson and John Krasinski looked rather taller
Arch Stanton said on 7/Apr/15
Anything in 182-3. Probably one of the sharpest looking guys in Hollywood facially, but has a sort of creepy demeanour in films which probably puts women off him!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Apr/15
He was taller than Jimmy Fallon.
Triplescrew said on 5/Mar/15
He looked about an inch above Conan's eyeline (~5'11"), making ~6 foot accurate. On his most famous TV roles he wears big cowboy boots which give him the impression of a 6'1" person.

Rob, you think Tim would be the missing link between a guy Matt Smith's height and a guy David Tennant's height? ;D
alex said on 15/Feb/15
This is a good call. He looks tall but not so much above average. He can easily be 182-183. He is fractionally taller than 180/181 cm. Bruce Willis, so 183 could be spot on.

alex said on 13/Feb/15
In justified Goggins wears some kind of timberland boots that give a lot of heel advantage, I think that kind of shoes elevate a person height even more than normal cowboy boots. Still Olyphant is a little taller, I think 6 foot is a good claim, he always look tall but not a lot above average like a 6'1 or more.
Giuseppe said on 24/Oct/14
Have you seen the photo that shows Timothy with Aaron Eckhart (5.11)? Can you post it? Thanks
I do not see 3 cm of difference!!!!
Arch Stanton said on 14/Oct/14
The tall guy in the pale blue top and white shorts in the photo further down is Justin Gimelstob who is listed at 6'5, more like 6'4 though..
Arch Stanton said on 14/Oct/14
He does look 6 ft further down though when wearing sneakers. Perhaps Rossdale is getting more height from the shoes over his flip flops than I thought and Timothy's a little further back from the camera isn't he. I still think 182 is a possibility though.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Oct/14
Rob do you think 182 might be better? Look at him next to Rossdale. Proportionally he looks 5'11" range seeing him in shorts and flip flops.
[Editor Rob: you could argue 182 aswell yeah ]
Arch Stanton said on 14/Oct/14
Click Here

Looks noticeably shorter than Gavin Rossdale who some claim is 184 max. I think Rossdale is a legit 6'1" flat, but Olyphant is looking a little shy of 6' there even accounting for footwear disadvantage. Is 182 more likely?
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 5/Oct/14
Tim looked pretty tall in the great 90s flick 'GO', especially during the party scene where he roams thru a crowd of people. Rob, can you add that film to his description? It's one of his best roles. Anyway- Timothy Olyphant height: 6ft 0in (183 cm) is correct
Giuseppe said on 25/Sep/14
I could not find the height of Brent Sexton which is higher than Timothy.
But after a confrontation with Damian Lewis (184 cm) (together the series Life), I've seen that have more or less the same height. So Bronte should be 184 cm. In the episode of Justified Brent indeed not wearing boots and is taller than Timothy. check
Giuseppe said on 25/Sep/14
I agree with Nick 22 Raymond J. Barry is 184 cm. But the scene in the hospital where you come face to face with Timothy, Raymond J. Barry brings Timothy slippers while wearing boots. It can not be 6 feet. Furthermore, when you see near MC Gainey (188cm), the difference does not seem to just 5 cm (2 inch).
Mr. R said on 18/Sep/14
He is also really skinny and lanky, so he looks way taller than he is.
Mr. R said on 18/Sep/14
He is a solid 6 footer. about an inch taller than me. Actually stood back to back with him last year.
Dmeyer said on 17/Sep/14
Agree with Alex he is a strong 6 footer
Paleman said on 16/Sep/14
Thought he was 6'1 after watching Deadwood, long legs and cowboy boots made him seem taller. Still looks pretty tall, I can't buy anything under 5'11,5 but a good 6 feet seems more plausible.
cole said on 12/Aug/14
Seen more of him lately and indeed 6ft seems pretty spot on. A fraction shy is possible but 5'11.5 could be nearing too low a guess.
Alex 6'0 said on 14/May/14
Id say he would measure 6'0.25 before he measures 5'11.5
Alex 6'0 said on 14/May/14
Def looks a solid 6'0. May even measure 6'0.5
cole said on 18/Mar/14
@Editor Rob: Yeah I think you're pretty spot on with the differences in their listed heights! Whether or not they are spot on 5'9, 5'11 and 6ft respectively is something else, but it's very arguable for all of them as perhaps the top end of a guess, I'd say. Long 5'8.5 - 5'9 zone, Willis 5'10.5 - 5'11 zone and Olyphant 5'11.5 - 6'0 zone - that's an arguable guess-range for them if you ask me.
[Editor Rob: G would tell you Long is about 5ft 10 in person!]
cole said on 17/Mar/14
@Editor Rob: What do you make of this? Click Here (Timothy with Justin Long and Bruce Willis). I added a pic that shows their footwear at that event as well. Willis seems to be standing a step closer to the camera than Long in that first shot.
[Editor Rob: I think the heights are ok, Long with less footwear and slightly further might look a bit smaller than he is]
Alucard said on 2/Mar/14
I'd say around 5'11, maybe just a bit more in the morning, he's fairly tall... The fact that he looks around 6'2 or more in movies goes to show how many short liars are in Hollywood... Lol at Bruce Willis as tall as him in Die Hard 4, Willis is 5'9 at best... And mega lol at Vin Diesel towering him in A Man Apart, mega lift wearer at 5'9...
Robin said on 13/Feb/14
Timothy with Jon Hamm who is 6ft 0.75 according to this site. Doesn't look like a 2 inch difference

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
"Timothy Olyplant's height is 6ft 0.25in (184cm)"

6ft on the nose is fair also. But, I think he's a stronger rather than weaker 6ft if you know what I mean.
dmeyer said on 10/Dec/13
I think 183cm is closer than 182cm
cole said on 8/Dec/13
I doubt he's a legit 6 footer, nevermind 6ft and change. 182 cm range I can agree with. 5'11.5 (5'11.75 at most).
Nick said on 29/Nov/13
Jake: I disagree, I'd doubt any 184 cm. This is due to several things; First of all; he's noticably shorter than Paul Dano in "The girl next door" (despite that Timothy had shoes that gave him an extra cm or two compared to Paul) and I haven't seen him taller than any person being a legit 6 footer. Also, he looked 182 cm with Joe Anderson. He was also shorter than Raymond in in every scene they had on Justified. Yes, I agree that he can appear taller than 6 ft in Justified, however, that's mainly because of his footware in that show.
Nick said on 6/Nov/13
Jake: Would you say a strong or weak 6 ft?
cole said on 21/Aug/13
Not quite 6ft, 182 cm is a good shout.
Martin said on 12/Aug/13
Carell is not 5'10. He's 5'9 at best, and Olyphant looked a tad shorted than Ed Helms. I would have guessed 5'11.5.
Brody said on 5/Aug/13
Legit 6'0". He was 2' taller than 5'10" Steve Carell in when he appeared in The Office.
Nick22 said on 26/Jul/13
Looked 182 cm beside Paul Dano (184 cm) in "The girl next door".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/13
Doesn't look intimidating at all, Jake.

But I think he's maybe a fraction over 6ft. One thing he can do is change his appearance quite dramatically.
cole said on 10/Jul/13
Rob, is 6ft his claim, or your estimation? Personally I think he can look around that mark, but I also think that he can look a bit shorter as well. He can look more 5'11.5 range.
cole said on 17/Jun/13
He's a solid 182 cm, not quite 6ft, the same height as Ed Helms or a tad shorter.
Chris said on 31/May/13
There is more height difference between Timothy and Steve Carell than Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell
Lomax said on 25/Apr/13
on hitman and the perfect getaway i thought he was 6'3"
penguinboy25 said on 22/Mar/13
I don't know. It's hard to tell .5 inch differences but does look a tad shorter than Ed Helms in a photo. Personally I think Helms is 5'11.75, So I think Olyphant is probably just scraping 182.
GH said on 11/Mar/13
Mr. R approximately how much do you think he weighs since he's skinny?
Dmeyer said on 7/Mar/13
Hé bits Bruce Willis easy and held his own near 6'4 lindo in boots the Guy is 6 ft
Mr. R said on 6/Mar/13
He is also very skinny.
Mr. R said on 6/Mar/13
I met him the other night at the tennis match he is 182cm, just shy of 6 feet.
lish said on 23/Feb/13
Because he is so narrow and has long legs,he looked well over 6ft to me.
Nick22 said on 18/Feb/13
Well, he was significantly shorter than 6'2 M.C. Gainey in the show "Justified". Also, he looked even shorter than 184 CM Raymond J. Barry in all scenes they had. Didn't look that much taller than 5'11 Joe Anderson in The Crazies. I'm still pretty sure he's in the 182-183 range.
Nick said on 13/Jan/13
Looks 182-183 cm. Probably 182 at his low.
Joey said on 9/Jan/13
182cm is spot on
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
Bruce Willis is 5ft11.5(182cm) or bare minimum 181cm. Olyplant is at least 1in taller in Die Hard. Anything shorter than this height is out the window for this guy. Probably 184cm
matt678 said on 17/Aug/12
i met him and i'm 5 foot 10.5 and he i wasnt quite eye to eye with him.. hes probably about 6 foot flat
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 13/Jun/12
He always appears reasonably tall -- He's likely between 182- 183 cm. I'd say he's 6ft 0.5in out of bed.
Silent d said on 27/Jan/12
He actually has 3 kids. My mistake. Misread a site. Solid 6 footer on conan last night. He's awesome.
Nick said on 20/Jan/12
great work as Grinch in MW3 and i think he is a solid 1,83 maybe 1,84-85 with good footwear
jake, 1.82 m/ 1.83 m said on 14/Jan/12
Silent d, Jason Lee and Thomas Jane were amongst other cast members in Dreamcatcher.
jake, 1.82 m/ 1.83 m said on 13/Jan/12
I could buy either 182 or 183 cm for Olyphant.
Silent d said on 29/Dec/11
He looked 6 foot next to emile hirsch and elisha cuthbert in the girl next door. I know they are short but the difference is huge. In the dream catcher, he stood his ground with damian lewis and some of the other actors who were tall. Can't remember who was in that movie. 6 foot. A legit 6 footer. One of the most under rated actors. I don't believe he has 4 kids. He lives a very private life.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 6/Dec/11
Olyphant is 6ft, Willis is 5ft 11in and was 5ft 11.25in peak.
braun said on 30/Nov/11
is it possibe thtah this guy could be a 6ft1 6' barefoot 61 footware
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
talk about min rane Timothy Olyphant during evening along die hard4 cast..

Timothy Olyphant - 182cm
Bruce Willis - 179cm
Justin Long - 176cm
Maggie Q - 164cm
Mary Elizabeth Winstead - 173cm
HS friend said on 1/Nov/11
Well, I for one know that he is at least 6'0 I went to HS with him for four years and he was either barefoot by the pool or in flip flops. Lol, he has always had a very unique way of walking. He always took his time walking so it looks more awkward when he walks fast. Oh yeah, I had a crush on him since 7th grade. :)
carnegie said on 31/Oct/11
i think he means hitman coz after he ran away from the interpol he walked barefoot
Chameleon said on 19/Oct/11
sean: what movie?
sean73 said on 19/Oct/11
Olyphant is a 6-0 guy.But he can pull off taller.Remember that scene where he`s walking on the sidewalk barefoot in the rain just before he got another suit-if youy told me 6-2 while watching that i would`ve agreed!
SH said on 15/Oct/11
Looks a solid 6 footer to me
LAN Jiao said on 30/Sep/11
one thing about Timothy Olyphant he claim 6foot tall which is fair , i also think he looks 182cm as well. especially die hard 4 premiere he look only 6cm taller than justin long listed 5'9 but apear much like 176cm while willis look 5'10.5 there. willis maybe drop a fraction under 180cm nowadays.
lan jiao said on 5/Sep/11
han sucks at juding height. will smith was 6ft2 then david beckham be 6ft1 and jeff goldblum 6ft5.5 lol
braun said on 4/Sep/11
if he is lets say a 5ft 10 then bruce willis must be like 5ft 9 which personally i dont thiink that now saying that this guy can look 5ft9 that would make bruce willis 5ft8 which its impossible ill say that in the worst of the cases this guy can be a 5ft 11 barefoot in die hard this guy looked having like an ich at least over bruce
Alex said on 4/Sep/11
Yea he can look both 5'11.5 and 6'0 but gives more of an impression of being 6'0 but its only 1/2 inch so its tough to call
han said on 4/Sep/11
In Hitman he looks like a solid 5'9" no offense. You guys don't know how to judge height, 6'2" is more like Will Smith and trust me THATS REALLY TALL.
carnegie said on 28/Aug/11
i find difficult to believe that this guy is just 6ft to me he always has looked like 6ft 1 is it possuble a 6ft barefoot??
ANDREA[ITA] said on 26/Aug/11
Next to 187 edoardo costa he looks at least 2 inches shorter! he's gotta be 182 max like rob says!
X said on 24/Aug/11
if this guy is 6ft then bruce willis must be 5ft 11 5ft10.5 i can buy a 6ft.5 for this guy
leni said on 23/Aug/11
is this guy a really a 6? he looks more like 6ft1 he looks tall specially in hitman
Alex said on 14/Aug/11
Closer to 6'0 than 5'11 I would say. 6'0 give or take a 1/4 is my guess.
Chameleon said on 12/Aug/11
Yeah ur right it is a small country.
Triplescrew said on 10/Aug/11
Chameleon says on 19/Apr/11
@Triplescrew: Please, I live in Netherlands so keep those wise talks to yourself. I do think average height here varies by place but it sure is 6+ where im at, I promise you.

----------------

Wise talks? Ok...

Regardless, the Netherlands is such a small place in terms of the world that it's like saying 5'6" is above average because in the Philippines average height for guys is 5'4".

Sorry if you missed it but that was the point I was trying to make.
yolan said on 8/Aug/11
Anyone who says anything bad about Timothy Olyphant's height, ya'll are being weirdos. He's awesome. Love to see his strong 6' in more roles like 'Highlife'
Tyler said on 1/Jul/11
I agree with Rampage. He's probably taller, but his bad posture makes him 6'0".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/11
6ft0.5, maybe even a weak 6ft1
Cranberries said on 4/Jun/11
Might be 6'0", but he's a small 6-footer. His build looks small to me. And I agree, he does walk funny (kind of like a penguin), and he holds his arms really weird. Looks like he was in braces as a kid or something.
jtm said on 2/Jun/11
a weak 6ft.
thebad7 said on 1/Jun/11
He's got the skills of the great character actors and he's parlayed that into leading role success. He's minimum 6'. Just finished watching the second season of JUSTIFIED. Granted, he wears cowboy boots in his Raylon Givens role which probably boost him close to 6'2". 6'0" for certain, but I wouldn't rule 6' 1/2", either. As another poster commented: he does hold his own against legit 6'2"-6'3" actors.

tb7

P.S.--He's lean & mean, and that look also makes him loom in tall fashion.
tipjar said on 26/May/11
Lol @ aaron, you're off the wall man.
I too thought tim was taller than he is, he def has a tall appearance, great actor
Mat said on 2/May/11
If he's really 6'ft then it doesn't look good for Bruce Willis. He looked almost 2 inches taller in Die Hard 4, maybe Willis is in the 5'10 range.

Wrong @ Triplescrew.

Correct @ Aaron.
------------------

Look at any average for the Netherlands where it isn't self reported and it is always below 6 feet. And either way I was mostly talking about how he said 6 feet is average or below average. If you think that then you are shorter than you think you are, go buy a measuring tape and look were 6 feet is. I guarantee it is higher up than you realize.
Ross said on 17/Apr/11
Wow!...I thought he was at least 6'2". He's got a swimmers body where youll have a really long wing span and long torso which will for sure add an illusion to your height that your much taller. In response to the europe deal. Only germanic parts of europe are where you will feel kind of dwarfed if your a tall American. Im 181.5 cm ( 5'11.5") and feel relatively tall in the U.S. I lived in England for 2 years and felt just slightly taller over there compared to the States. The French....wow..I felt like I was 6'2" around them. But in Germany, the Netherlands, and pretty much all of Scandanavia I felt like I was only average height. Apparrantly the Croatians and other south slaves are freakishly tall as well.

'' 6 feet, in reality, isn't really tall and is average or below average in many parts of europe''.
That's funny ,because i'm ''only'' 6 feet and i'm taller than 95 per cent of the people i've met.

Not a very big guy, and he walks funny too.
Only movie he looked physically adept in was Hitman, mostly because that's what they were aiming for. 6 feet, in reality, isn't really tall and is average or below average in many parts of Europe.
----------------------------------------

Below average....lol. You do know that self reported heights are inflated..right? In reality there is no average height anywhere in Europe that is above 5'11" and a bit...

Rob if he's 182cm, doesn't that put Willis at 5ft11 flat?
Kelsey said on 21/Mar/11
He is 6ft, in I Am Number Four, he stands a couple inches taller than Alex Pettyfer who is 5ft 11in. But his hair does make him taller so 6 ft sounds right. Just look @ him next to Alex.
E said on 16/Mar/11
looks a good deal shorter than john krasinski and rainn wilson during an episode of the office. i would put him at 5'11" even no more, not over 6.
Dural said on 14/Feb/11
Rob, why is Timothy Olyphant listed as 183cm if you think he looks 182cm?

[Editor Rob: he can look 182 or 183]
Pit said on 14/Feb/11
Click Here
Olga with 5-6cm more Footwear (Rob?) as Olyphant looks exactly the same height, maybe 1 cm shortter. (3-4cm Dress Shoe - Olyphant) ( 10cm ?? Heels - Olga)
1.73-1.75m (Olga) + 10 cm Heels= 1.83m - 1,85m
1.83m (Olyphant)+ 3-4cm Shoes= 1.86m - 1,87m

Where is the mistake Rob? Maybe he is really 1.82m or 1.81m?
SAK said on 13/Feb/11
I think he is 182cm a very strong 5ft11, not quite 6ft, a very decent height nonetheless.
Becky said on 3/Feb/11
I didn't know Timothy Olyphant was six feet. I like tall guys.
arnie said on 3/Jan/11
I really taught Olyphant was 6'2, but a weak 6'1 would be accurate.
Legend said on 30/Dec/10
My first impression watching the crazies was that he's 5'11.
Ayoub said on 9/Dec/10
i think he has 1.89cm.because if you look in hitman you will see how tall
dmeyer said on 4/Dec/10
is 184cm possible
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/10
This guy was a bit taller than Bruce Willis.

6ft 0.25in or 6ft 0.5in indeed
Leung said on 3/Dec/10
I agree 184cm would be more accurate.
Xdan said on 1/Dec/10
In Die Hard, he is clearly taller than Bruce Willis, listed in this site for 182 cm. So he is at least 184 cm.
dmeyer said on 10/Oct/07
rob considering he is as tall as cage in boots and taller than willis easy rob is 184 possible for this guy

[Editor Rob: I'm not sure, he looks 6ft on deadwood.]
dmeyer said on 22/Aug/07
olyphant looks more than 1 in on willis so are they listed only 1 in diiferance
Alex said on 20/Jul/07
I agree. 6'0 minimum he looks to me.
dmeyer said on 15/Jul/07
how can you say this guy looks 182 when he has about 4 to 5 cm on willis
dmeyer said on 4/Jul/07
he towers over willis he could be 184 cm
dmeyer said on 26/Jun/07
rob you shold take off your 182 comment about olyphant since he look 1.25 to 1.5 in taller than willis so that will make willis just about 5'10 i think he is a solid 6 ft guy
dmeyer said on 18/Feb/07
i see more 183 strong for that guy than 182
Aussie Bloke said on 16/Nov/06
Looks more like 6ft3 in the girl next door, but he is shorter than Jerry O'Connell in Scream 2, so I reckon he's grown in the last couple of years!
dmeyer said on 5/Nov/06
the guy is no less than 6 ft since he isnt dworfed by 193 lindo and looks almost as tall as 188 o connel
dmeyer said on 5/Nov/06
rob i think the guy could be 6'0.5 since he looks close in height with 188 oconeel
Anonymous said on 26/Mar/06
Rob, it's the other way around. he's more like 6 foot 2
J.J said on 21/Jun/05
Think you're right here Rob - though I really don't think he's under 1.83 (6').
Maybe even a tad taller...
