Hm, clearly a 5'7" body with 6'2" head.
MichaelR said on 15/Sep/17
Y'all wrong guys. I want you to check Michael Mando's (168 cm) Instagram account. His latest update features the pic of him and Bob. They have an inch difference max!
The next shot also reveal that Michael is wearing heels (an inch approx.), so Bob is no taller than 172-173 cm imo.

This is a bit low, 5'9.5" seems more like it.
Nolan said on 11/Aug/17
5'9" flat seems a bit low.176-177 cm seems more likely

No hate on Bob, but in Better Call Saul S02E01 @ 30:50 he is with Rhea Seehorn's character in the bathroom, both are barefoot.
I believe in that scene he had four inches max over her.
So his claim as 6ft is ridiculous. I wonder how Google ever let it landed in their search system.
Editor Rob: he could look sometimes 1.5-2 inches on someone like aaron paul.

Looks 5'8 to me

Big head short legs guy

Odenkirk certainly seems to want people to think he's 6 feet tall, though he clearly isn't. Latest "Saul" promo has him in front of police height chart hitting 72 inches. Not buying.
KH said on 18/Apr/17
Odenkirk doesn't really stand out heightwise so not surprising at all he is about average. The vast majority of men are in the 5'8-5'11 range.
Roger said on 14/Apr/17
Yes, definitely in the high 5ft8/low 5ft9 range. I never bought the 5ft11 claims on imdb.com as you can clearly see that the limbs and hands don't match it. He has a disproportionally big head, so that tall forehead certainly helps maxing it out...Good call here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/17
He's a good example of how 5ft9 isn't actually that short
Lacy said on 2/Jan/17
I'm 5'10" and edged him out by an inch when I met him
Omar said on 30/Nov/16
the tallest 5'9" guy ever
Peter175 said on 25/Oct/16
I can believe 176
Charizard said on 15/Jul/16
This dude is like the tallest small dude out of a cast of the cast is short if you get what I mean by a hair.. Barely noticeable and he's not short for sure but he isn't tall. Can look 176cm and quite shorter to 174cm too

5'7 body with a 6'5 head
Tall(ish) guy said on 13/Mar/16
I'm 6ft dead on and bumped into bob in a bar in New York. 5 9 is 100% correct
Nick said on 10/Mar/16
I'd buy 5'9 or 5'10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/16
He's definitely not 5ft11-6ft range. I don't know how those crazy figures end up on the internet. That would make Patrick Fabian 6ft3-4 and Ed Begley Jr. about 6ft8!
He could be a fraction over 5ft9 and might wear bigger shoes to clear 5ft10 on BCS.
alex said on 23/Feb/16
he looks 5'8 in this pic
MaskDeMasque said on 22/Feb/16
I think you could argue 5'9.25 for him. This is pretty accurate though.
Lelolel said on 17/Feb/16
WTF Google says 182cm I knew they were wrong
said on 12/Jan/16
Look at Bob with Norman Reedus
Hahah said on 9/Jan/16
This guy is listed as 6'0, how pathetic. Do people really think they can get away with nonchalantly adding 3 inches to their height?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/16
Looks right between Cranston (5ft10½) and Paul (5ft7¾).
"Bob Odenkirk's height is 5ft 9¼in (176.89cm)"
He could pass for 5ft10 back in his Second City days.
said on 1/Jan/16
Happy 2016, Rob! Good to be back!
Rob, how tall do you think Patrick Fabian is?
Editor Rob: ah, happy new year! He looks a guy who could clear 6ft
Paleman said on 9/Dec/15
Yeah, he looks pretty tall for a 5'9 guy... He always gives me the impression of being a little bit taller than that, like 176-177cm... He doesn't seem to be that much shorter than the 5'10.5" Bryan Cranston on Breaking Bad.

Just watched the first first episode of With Bob and David on Netflix.
Cross w/ rest of Arrested Development cast: Click Here
w/ Michael Cera & Jack Black: Click Here
w/ Jason Lee: Click Here
w/ Will Arnett: Click Here
w/ Louis CK: Click Here
w/ Scott Aukerman: Click Here
What do you think, Rob, on Cross now? Maybe 5'8.25" is really the top for him? Any closer to adding him?
Editor Rob: I think 5ft 8.25 is probably a good figure to put him on.
Sam said on 13/Nov/15
Rob, any chance you'd upgrade him slightly to 5'9.25" and add David Cross at 5'8.5"...I think that's pretty fair for both. Also a good time for the change as they are in the press a lot right now due to their new show together
slothee said on 10/Nov/15
As others have stated, I really think he needs an upgrade. He gives me a 176-177cm impression. I'd give him at least 5ft 9.25!
Sam said on 14/Oct/15
Rob, could you also add Mr. Show and Nebraska to his known fors?
colin said on 16/Aug/15
lol ppl, where did you look when watching bb? he never looked beyond 175cm
he is a very weak 175cm
if you're comparing him with aaron paul, you're wrong, cause aaron is a dwarf
an anonymous peach said on 15/Aug/15
The tallest 5ft 9er i've ever seen...
heydude78 said on 16/Jun/15
Rob is a bit off on this one. From watching Breaking bad & BCSaul and scaling him next to the other actors I'd have to give Bob at least 5'9.25-5'9.5 or 1.76 m. but I wouldn't be surprised if he was weak 5'10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Mar/15
Rob, you need to add Better Call Saul to the line.
Patrick Fabian might be closer to 6ft.
shawn said on 17/Mar/15
Patrick fabien DWARFES him, he literally makes saul look 5'7, i'm going to assume Fabien is actually 6ft and Bob is 175cm at best. In breaking Bad he looked tallish by himself, but 178-179cm bryan cranston was always taller. No taller than 175cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Mar/15
He looks 176-177cm range.
dm1 said on 12/Mar/15
bob odenkirk is 5'9ish in shoes,absolutely dwarfed in better call saul by hamlin(actor Patrick Fabian) who is a LEGIT flat 5'11,you would think he is 6'2 but is definitely 1.80m
said on 28/Feb/15
I think Bob's going to have to be upgraded. Look at him next to Michael Mando (billed at 5'9, seems more like 5'7.5):
Looks consistently an inch shorter than 5'10.5 Cranston and 1-1.5 inches taller than 5'7.75 Aaron Paul. I'm willing to bet Odenkirk gets out of bed at 5'10 and goes to sleep at around 5'9.5, averaging at 5'9.75.
Bean said on 24/Feb/15
Wow, looks 5'11"ish. Gives the impression of a taller guy.
maslow said on 24/Feb/15
In breaking bad he alwaysed looked 5'9, bryan cranston was always taller,in better call saul he looks 175-177cm though. It's hard to say, like someone said, his head does give him a lot more height(lol) 176cm was my guess but 175cm looks well also.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/15
Looks between 5ft9-10, IMO.
Patrick 1.75m said on 20/Feb/15
i wouldnt lose money. I am 1.75m. I know how tall a 1.75m have to look. And Bob is taller. You are a verry tiny dude with 1.75m. And Bob looks average tall.
horacle said on 19/Feb/15
beside 6'1 jon hamm he looks taller than 5'9, he never looks short to me
Jake 6ft0.5 said on 17/Feb/15
Strange. He really looks 5'10 to 5'11 in Breaking Bad sometimes. Then again, I would've guessed Cranston to be taller, too. Amazing what a screen does
MD said on 13/Feb/15
Then, you should be prepared to lose some money. Sorry, but we don't go on gut feelings, here. This guy is lucky if he's his listed height, let alone nearly 5'11". You'd do yourself well to go research for some pictures of him to see how ridiculous your gut feeling is.
Patrick 1.75m said on 11/Feb/15
I say it again: He isn´t 1.75m. I am, and i´m not looking that tall as him. He is at least 1.80m. Put him next to me, you would see, he is taller than me. I meassured myself so many times, i know how tall i am. He isn´t my height! I bet Dollars on it.
vilgotaan said on 10/Feb/15
He seems taller on stage.
EzioAuditore711 said on 10/Feb/15
Looks to be on the short side.
john said on 10/Feb/15
Bob is deceptively short because he has a tall head. He is only about 5 8.
Adamz said on 10/Feb/15
Previously i was comparing him with Cranston on BB. He looked about 1-2 inches shorter. Now ive seen him more on new show "Better Call Saul". I think this 175cm is accurate. hes not above it after re-assessing. could even be 174, actually. I am 174 and he looks to be my height.
Adamz said on 29/Dec/14
BGee said on 26/Nov/14
Dude got bad proportions, makes him look shorter than his average height.
MaskDeMasque said on 23/Nov/14
Looked an inch smaller than Cranston in Breaking Bad.
Odenkirk- 5'9 maybe 5'9.25
Cranston- 5'10 maybe 5'10.25
Sam said on 21/Nov/14
I would say he looked consistently a bit taller than Will Forte, maybe Odenkirk is more a 5'9.5"/176 cm guy?
1.75m Patrick said on 19/Sep/14
Never looked small to me. And 1.75m is small.
So i don´t think, this guy is 5foot9.
Mr.V said on 30/Aug/14
In "Nebraska" he looked similar height as Will Forte, maybe a hair taller. I agree that he might be 176 cm.
Sam said on 19/Aug/14
He never seemed 5'11' or 6' on BB, although at times he looked similar to Cranston in height, more similar than photos would suggest.
Chris said on 18/Aug/14
His shoes look really stuffed
mike said on 18/Aug/14
Bob Odenkirk's height is 5ft 9.25in (176 cm)
between 5ft 9 and 5ft 9.5.
med said on 17/Aug/14
I thought he was 5ft11 6 ft in Breaking Bad
Balrog said on 17/Aug/14
Yes, legit 5'9". Could buy 176cm for him he looked this next to Cranston in Breaking Bad.
L said on 15/Aug/14
5'8.75 or 5'9 is probably right on
cole said on 14/Aug/14
@Editor Rob: FINALLY! Completely agree with 5'9. He's listed 5'11.5 a lot of places lol, hope that's not his own claim! He's about 1.5in shorter than Cranston and 4in shorter than Colin Hanks in Fargo for sure. "Artillery" Arthur Hobbs also looked about 2in shorter than NPH on HIMYM. He appeared in 8 episodes of the show, worth mentioning at the top?
Andrea said on 14/Aug/14
Yeah, once again i totally agree with you, Lorne ;)
PS I thought you left the site because i haven't seen your comments for a while, good to hear you're still here :)
Lorne said on 13/Aug/14
His posture isn't always so great, but 176cm "peak" wouldn't surprise me.
Andrea said on 13/Aug/14
He for sure is worth adding ;)
said on 13/Aug/14
Yeah, I suppose he does look about 1.5 inches under the 5'10.5" listed Bryan Cranston.
jtm said on 13/Aug/14
i thought he was taller.
said on 13/Aug/14
Yeah, Saul!!! I would have guessed him somewhere between 5'9 and 5'9.5, so 5'9 is a fine guess! I wouldn't rule out a fraction over it, though! Rob, what convinced you to add him? :)
[Editor Rob: he is worth adding after being reminded about him!]
