He look 6'0.25" here. Maybe he measure at his tallest at 6'1 but drop at lowest 6'0.5" range

@Editor Rob: I will write the same thing I wrote under Terry O'Quinn, I think it would be fairer if you could have change William's height with Terry's peak height.

I guessed 6'1 before clicking on the picture, not far off but I think he pulls off looking 5 inches taller than you here.

Solid 6'1, with the hair he looks a little more taller.

He sorta looks like the main singer from crowded house,corruption rob I just read that you had him at 6'1.

This is the lowest I would go for this guy. He isn't under this. Even if he was, It would be too small to notice.
Giorgi said on 17/Dec/16
Looks like strong 185 cm. Probably doesn't go to bed much smaller than that.

This dude looked huge on Supergirl the other night. He looked 6'3-6'4. He looked so imposing. Camera angles do some serious magic. This is a good listing for him!

Rob, who looked taller this guy or Jon Heder?
Editor Rob: I would have said it is hard to tell really but I'd give William an edge because he had less hair than Jon.

Short faces can give illusion being taller. He look as tall as jon heder 6'0

I see fleeting glimpses of Cruise in his eyes...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/May/16
Similar to Jon Hamm, I thought. Both 184-185cm
Paleman said on 24/Apr/16
He does look near 6'1". A big forehead and low, narrow eyes can give the impression of being shorter when standing next to someone, but just look at the top of his head. He's easily over 10 centimeters taller than Rob.
A weak 6'1", 184cm is the lowest I can buy for this guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
He looked similar to Hamm, I thought
said on 5/Apr/15
Rob, are you 100% sure of this? He guest starred in an episode of mad men, and 185cm range Jon Hamm is clearly about an inch taller, both in dress shoes. Even if Hamm's were a tad thicker, this seems impossible.
Could mapother be more of a 184cm guy? I don't know his age, maybe he's lost a fraction...
[Editor Rob: not seen the episode so don't know how they looked.]

So....taller than cousin Tom Cruise, definitely. :P
rtv said on 23/Oct/14
he is a cousin of tom cruise... surprised he is so tall lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/14
184-185cm is solid.
dom said on 3/Oct/14
if u think will mapother is 5´11 with Rob then you´re clueless about heights.
TJE said on 27/Sep/14
Rob's 169 hairline is a cm under William's eyelevel, and he's got a pretty big eyelevel. 185 is fine.
SaveUsY2J said on 18/Sep/14
5'11!? Am I looking at the same photo as everyone else?
John said on 23/Jul/14
It's funny because Tom Cruise is a Mapother via O'Mara.
Realist said on 3/Jun/14
Hey you are that awesome so-called short but actually average guys brother right?
Man 5.25 inches taller and could'nt take him down. Bad luck mate.
person said on 25/Apr/14
slightly over 6'1 i would say
Lonestar said on 14/Mar/14
Nothing over 5ft11.5 as we can see a weak 4inch here

"William Mapother's height is 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"
avi said on 29/Jun/13
Due to his large forehead yeah weak 6'1. People are saying 5'11ish cause of the eyeline. They are fooled that rob is equal with his eyebrows either way it'd still be more than 5'11 even if he had normal sized head.

Xior said on 29/Apr/13
Was shorter than Don in Mad Men (Jon Hamm)! Everything keeps suggesting that Jon Hamm is taller than his listing on this site.
Bakura said on 11/Feb/13
@Hob- What shoe advantage?
17, 6'0 said on 1/Feb/13
6'1. 5'11 is ridiculous!
Trent said on 19/Jan/13
I think this listing is correct.
LJ said on 15/Jan/13
Looked 6'1 on Lost. Good listing.
said on 15/Oct/12
Rob with Kellan at 6'0, does it make this guy 184 cm?
[Editor Rob: not impossible]
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 6/Sep/12
Looks 6'1.25 with 6'1 Lutz.
Danimal said on 18/Aug/12
avi said on 13/Jun/12
could be 6'1 flat...he probably has a shoe advantage here. you are under his eyebrows so hes definitely over 6'0.25
Hob said on 9/Jun/12
i clearly sees a 181cm guy beside rob. he does't stand badly and not even a eye brown level higher than rob. after shoe advantage on rob he is flat 5'11.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Jan/12
Rob, the guy on the right side (in the photo you posted) is listed at 6'5 on the web. do you agree that he looks no more than 6'3.5 with kellan lutz and william?
peyman said on 9/Jan/12
I don't know how tall is a dress shoe , but here i see a 185 guy.
said on 7/Jan/12
He's 182.5cm or a weak 6"0 next
to Rob. There's about a 3.5in difference.
Doesn't look anything close to 185cm(6"1).
Probably closer to 6"0 than 6"1.
ChiasmataX said on 3/Jan/12
184cm might be closer/same height as height challenger # 10. He's pushing 185cm because of his hairstyle.
shewşonko said on 28/Dec/11
ı think flat 6'1
Ras said on 12/Nov/11
He looks 5'11.5". If he is wearing a dress shoe He's 6'0" AT BEST here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Oct/11
Not over 183cm(6"0) in the pic...
said on 12/Oct/11
Damn... at first I thought he was 6ft range with Rob, but at 2nd glance, is forehead is freakin huge! Honestly, he looks as if there is more than 5 inches from the top of his head to his eyes, Rob's head comes just above the eyes. Rob is always a hair over 5ft8, and 5ft8.25in at best by the afternoon, so considering this guy's forehead, he has more than 5 inches on Rob, so 6ft0.75 is correct. He may measure as low as 6ft0.5in at his lowest, but nothing less.
So legit 184.5-185cm guy, his forehead adds an extra inch from top of head to eye-level, making him appear shorter.
Do you have to pay attention to things like that when estimating they're heights Rob???
[Editor Rob: he might have 5-inch eyelevel, but I think he's got about 1/3rd inch more hair than I do]

Balthier said on 8/Sep/11
If I am allowed to be picky, he looks 184 cm but 185 is alright aswell, I guess.

Whoa I thought this guy was like 6'3 or so. He looks HUGE compared to Nick Stahl in the movie In the Bedroom.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/11

This guy is Tom Cruise's cousin. Did he inherit the obsessive lift gene I wonder?
