I swear to god he is 5'7" at best, he looks consistently shorter than Steve Carell by an inch, and I know Steve Carell is 5'8" at best!

Novaks looks under 5'8", but slightly so...I would estimate 172cm instead.

Standing next to Stamos:
Stamos is listed as 5'10.5, which is generous imho. Looks like Stamos is about 2 in. taller in this pic

On the office they act like he is so short.

Depending on the photograph he looks .5 - 1 inch above Christoph Waltz. He could be 5'7.75.

BJ might not be as short as 5-7 flat like i thought earlier. Could be what is listed here but I dont think any taller.

He may be this height but he just looks alot shorter and scrawnier

Doesn't look 5'8.75 with Eli roth - who Rob has said is not over 180cm.
Note that Roth is bending his head down a bit in the picture.

5-7 for BJ. Knock 'em DOWN.

Strong 5'8, but not this close to 5'9. Carell himself is a weak 5'9, and Novak consistently looks about .75-1 inch shorter. I'd give him 5'8.75 in the morning, MAYBE.

This guy has a massive height complex. If you ever see pictures of him at formal events, he's ALWAYS tilting his head in a very noticeable manner. It's ridiculous.

In the PSA announcement he says 5'9 is average, not 5'7. Then he says "even 5'8 and 3/4." is average. That seems to be his story and he is sticking to it. I'd say he is like 5'8.5 and Carell is probably 5'9"

IMO, BJ isnt this tall.
MD said on 21/Nov/10
What we know he isn't is close to 5'9", which is why I can't for the life of me understand why he was even started this high. Honestly, Rob could take a good inch off, and that'd be a good place from which to start.

@Adamz: What you say is possbile. But he could also be close to 5-8 in the morning, and then when I would see him later in the day, he was shorter than that.

B.J. is lying. He was a writer on the Bob Saget sitcom that I did several years ago, and he is 5-7 at the tallest point of the day.
So 5-7 flat out of bed? Which means approx. 5-6.5 by evening, correct Mr. R?
Wallace said on 16/Nov/10
Actually, I'm pretty sure he says 5-9, cos I'm that height and I remember thinking I'd look about his size if I were on the show.
