Hmm. Karras is listed elsewhere on the 'net at six foot two and is said to have played at 248 pounds. I have just seen the movie Paper Lion, in which Karras plays himself, and his claimed weight is 267 pounds. Which seems a little high.

Alex Karras looked like a giant next to the 4’3” Emmanuel Lewis, but he appeared about an inch shorter than the 6’1” James Garner who was 54-years-old in The film ‘Victor/Victoria’ in 1982. Karras’ “Webster” co-star Susan Clark was 5’9”, and she often wore heels, making her look about the same height as Karras. I’d say Alex Karras was 6’0” peak.

Karras played on the line in the NFL at 240 pounds, and was openly derided for being too small.

An honest claim perhaps, he sure could look a bigger guy in some roles like Blazing Saddles just based on his beefy build I guess. In Victor/Victoria, maybe comes out half an inch or so under James Garner.
Maybe as listed with James Belushi.
If anything he looks to be rounding up based on here with Jeff Bridges, maybe he's standing a bit poorer or in lower terrain there.

Joe Montana was listed 6ft2 and he was considerably shorter than that

Pretty rare for NFL to exaggerate a player by 2 inches. NFL heights are relatively more accurate than other sport organizations.

Good actor, taller than I'd thought.
Editor Rob: Shadow asked about him 5 years ago on his wife's page, who claimed 5ft 9. He was billed 6ft 2 during his footall days...
