solid 189 or 6'2.5 here, no doubt about that
Andrea said on 27/May/16
Agree with Rob... I am sure he can give a taller impression than 6'2.5 at times on the screen but i don't think he's over this listing! Rob showed a picture with a 6'2.5-6'3 guy and Brandon looks shorter than him! Don't base your guess on people that Rob hasn't met... It is true that he can look at least a big 6'3 guy with people like Christian Bale, Kevin Spacey and Hugh Jackman but those guys are all overlisted! Bale is probably 5'11.5, Kevin 5'9 flat and Hugh has never been over 186-187... 189 is a good listing for Brandon!

@Rob: Since you are the expert, I will agree. However, before I end our argument a small fact. I measured myself in the morning and night for three consecutive days and got a minimum of 171+cms in the morning and 168.5+cms in the night. My brother, Navin, is similar to Brandon in height, only difference being he is dark in complexion and is also around 6 foot, 2.5 inches (Measured during afternoon).

I noticed that you mentioned Brandon's hair is atleast 1-1.5 inches. Well, here is a small point, my brother also has a similar hairstyle, if not more fluffier. When I measured him, I placed the scale firmly on his head and was shocked to notice that the fluffier hairstyle was not only because of the healthy amount of hair he had, but rather he had a concave head (meaning his head was odd-shaped )and it made his hairstyle appear fluffier
We had a challenge on him being "6 foot 2". Well guess what, he failed the challenge, he was not 6 foot 2, he was almost 0.5 inches taller :|

I will try to get you a pic of me and my brother in the same pose for you to get a bigger idea. And FYI, I am 170.5 mid-day, and my brother is around the 188-190 range, he could be 192 by early morning
Editor Rob: I said not less than 'half an inch', as in 0.5 inch range :)

We are all guessing on here, and you find guesses for any celebrity will vary over a range. If you estimate him near 6ft 3 no problem (in some movies/shows he has looked it), but in person my feeling was somewhere between the 2 and 3 range...but I don't dismiss the chance of somebody being above/below a guess.
Aswin Kini MK said on 26/May/16
@Rob: I was going through your videos, Rob, You have listed yourself as 173 cms minimum and 175.2 in the morning. Now, considering that you fully know your height, I am sure you will agree with me that there is no way that you are less than 18 cm shorter than Brandon Routh in this photo. I can easily place a half a foot scale on your head in the photo and yet it will land up well than an inch short.

I think Brandon might need an upgrade by 0.5 inch. I know you feel he doesn't look tall, but I saw Superman Returns yesterday and i was able to see him tower half a foot for Kevin Spacey in every frame. I do agree that IMDB (That exaggerates heights) shows him at 6 2.5, but please do remember that Actors do understate heights in Hollywood as they cant get roles if they are over 6 foot 2. Even Hugh Jackman stated this in one of his interviews. In all pics, Brandon Routh looks a strong 1 inch taller than every other 6 foot 2 footer, you can refer to his pic with Dwayne Johnson (Who is now 6 foot 2 or 2.25) and compare Dwayne with 6 foot 3 Chris Helms.

Hope you get the picture. From the pic shown here, I see a strong 190cm tall guy.
Editor Rob:
I didn't think his hairstyle was any less than half inch. My impression I get is above 6ft 2 flat and under 6ft 3 full.
Of course that doesn't mean I'm right or wrong, it's just my estimate based on seeing him a few times now.
Aswin Kini MK said on 20/May/16
@Rob - Dear Rob, I think you really need to upgrade Brandon Routh or downgrade Kevin Spacey from 5 foot 9.75 to 5 foot 8 as stated in this site. I have seen Superman Returns, and I have seen several photos of Brandon Routh with Kevin Spacey, Christian Bale, and Hugh Jackman. I can clearly see a Strong 6 foot 3 to 3.5 footer.
Click Here

I understand that you are using a height app and have a better understanding of height difference, but when a 6 foot 2.5 inches person towers more than one inch over 6 foot 2 Hugh Jackman and 3 inches over CHristian Bale, i really start doubting the camera angles and the app. What do you say, Rob?
Editor Rob: I don't know if he towered 3 inches over bale, some of those photos Where taken here...bale's right foot is on a downslope.
In person Routh doesn't look a big 6ft 3 guy.
Aswin Kini MK said on 20/May/16
Rob - I think you have understated Brandon's height here by 0.5 to 1 inches. Have a look at this pic where he is standing with 6 foot 2 Hugh Jackman:
Click Here
Click Here
And here with 6 foot Christian Bale (Height stated in Celeb Height):
Click Here

Here is clear pic, where both are standing tall and Brandon is a clear 3 inches taller than 6 foot Christian Bale.

If you feel these are valid, kindly downgrade Christian Bale or upgrade Brandon Routh.
Eric said on 13/May/16
In this photo he is so 189.5
Mark said on 30/Apr/16
He's definitely above the 6'2 range for sure.
Ayush said on 23/Apr/16
Really on the arrow show he looks much taller than amell or ramsey.Maybe a weak 6/4 feet
Johno said on 13/Apr/16
A good example of a strong 6'2; 6'2.5.
S.J.H said on 7/Apr/16
I believe brandon routh was at least 6'2.25 and with a 1.3" dress shoe he look a fraction or 0.4" taller than zachary levi in 0.5" converse chucks. That quite makes sense he was 6'2.5 but he could be also 6'2.25 by lowest since most people argue levi was minimum 6'2-3/4 (i doubt it too) although not all celebrity rob meet in person was given an accurate listing. I think routh is okey to make it 6'2.5
184.3cm (Night) said on 30/Mar/16
He can pull off 6'3" at times. On Arrow he comfortably clears Vinnie Jones in one scene and the difference looks similar to Paul Blackthorne who is a legit 6'3". Good posture and proportions do alot.
Bob101 said on 29/Mar/16
How can you be sure his head stops an inch down and the rest is hair in that picture, I have a point on my head so my last half a inch/inch is all in the tip of my head. It looks like you are just guessing Rouths head ends at 6'2 and not 6'3
Editor Rob: I'm not saying it ends at 6ft 2, I think his hair is 6ft 3ish, but his hair isn't flat it has some volume. If it was less than half an inch I'd be surprised.
Bobby B. said on 15/Mar/16
lol the new height app shows rob's head as 25.4 cm. Brandon's somewhere around 23.5cm and he's about half a head taller so 188-189 sounds about right

Brandon Routh: 6ft2½-6ft2¾
Tom Welling: 6ft2¾-6ft3
Sammy Derrick said on 7/Feb/16
'Lois,how tall would you say Clark is?
'About 6'3,6'4...'
'About 200...215lbs'
This is a conversation in Superman Returns and Brandon Routh looks like a solid 6'3 in the entire movie...
Brandon Routh may play a superhero on his Thursday CW series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” but at least this time he didn’t have to bulk up for the role. And for that, he is thankful.

Back in 2004, the 36-year-old Iowa native had to add more than 20 pounds to his lean 6-feet-2-1/2-inch frame to play the Man of Steel in the 2006 theatrical feature “Superman Returns.” The training regimen, he recalls, was rigorous.

“It was diet and lots of supplements and protein shakes and a lot of weights …,” he tells Zap2it. “A lot of hours in the gym at the time and eating mass amounts of chicken breasts and egg-white omelets.”This is what he said in a previous interview the 6'2.5 keeps pooping up...6'2.5(189CM)It is...
Alex said on 31/Jan/16
Routh is pretty tall, but I guess is not a 189 cm barefoot, maybe is 188 without shoes.
moe said on 13/Jan/16
Zachary Levi is taller than 6'2. But don't take my word for it. Go to Comi Con and see for yourself. He interacts with fans at Nerd HQ all the tie. He's over 6'3
Al said on 7/Jan/16
Actually Brandon Routh is taller than Zacchary levi who is 6'2. Brandon
Routh's height is spot on. Levi was more than an inch shorter than Conan.
Idk said on 22/Dec/15
Still closer to 6'3"
Willes190 said on 18/Dec/15
Same thing with Brandon.. solid 189cm at bedtime. Rob you've downgraded alot of celebs recently.. maybe it's time to be fair and upgrade some of them. You've said yourself that people shouldn't claim their lowest height :). If that's the case then i should change my name to Willes188
Willes190 said on 19/Nov/15
Closer to 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/15
So Rob, you think Welling is holding 190cm range into the evening while Routh is down to 189cm at his low?
Editor Rob: I think he would probably hold it, welling may not drop to a flat 6ft 2.5, but still hold that smaller fraction under 6ft 3.
Ragnartheman said on 5/Nov/15
Rob, if I am 183,5 In the morning after I wake up, what do you think I will measure in the afternoon and at night? Thank you
Editor Rob: probably 182 range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/15
Rob, who would you guess as taller Routh or Welling?

Both are well-built and have great posture
[Editor Rob: I do think welling probably might edge him by a fraction, although 6ft 2.5 late afternoon for Routh is probably what he is, he may well measure a bit taller at lunchtime.]
Willes190 said on 25/Oct/15
Brandon Routh, 190,5cm
Zachary Levi, 191cm

Hey this is how tall my "6 foot 4" cousin looks next to a 5 foot 8 person in my family! Oh wait.

it looks few mm more than the number Challenge 5
joe said on 15/Aug/15
Rob, the rock looks like they had the same height, they also were both with good posture
Andrea said on 9/Aug/15
Rob, do you think he'd look like in the photo (with the 6'2.5-6-2.75 guy) with the other "Superman" Tom Welling? I think Tom would be just a bit taller than him...
[Editor Rob: I think if you took a dozen photos from different positions, you probably would think they were very similar. Routh in person I think has very good posture like Welling.]
joe said on 8/Aug/15
tom welling probably be a higher 7mm think difference is not visible to the naked eye
Moke said on 16/Jul/15
You can do basically everything with this height. Pick up every woman, still move comfortably and not stiff, play every sport except maybe for gymnastics or equitation. Always have clear view but not stand out from the crowd when not feeling like it. Lucky man. Listing is very good.
Chris said on 9/Jul/15
Hi Rob,
Just wondered if the heights on this website represent the average heights of these people and not the lowest heights of the day or late afternoon when they'll be below their average. I'm 6'1" at 11am and this happens to be my average height. (6'1.375" out of bed and 6'0.625" before bed) several people I know also are at their average at a similar time of day.
[Editor Rob: afternoon or evening, typically only has 2-3mm difference on average. They're not thought of as morning.]
frank said on 5/Jul/15
Rob, if I am 184.5 In the morning after I wake up, what do you think I will measure in the afternoon and at night? Thank you
[Editor Rob: likely between 182 and 3 zone. Maybe 182.5ish at night]
BMW 186 said on 25/Jun/15
Looks like 6'1.5
Aza said on 22/Jun/15
This listing is spot on. A genuine 189 cm person ( lowest height) barefoot is an awesome height to be.
joe 193cm night said on 21/Jun/15
Jason says on 12/Jun/15
Rob, who do you think would be taller between him and Chris Hemsworth?
yes, chris would measure a little highClick Here
joe 193cm night said on 17/Jun/15
it seems to work very well in some posture photos
Andrea said on 15/Jun/15
Rob, he actually looks max 6'2 with those two guys, do you think he was dropping some height during the photoshoot? Strange because he generally looks a guy with a great posture...
[Editor Rob: actually the 5ft 11.5ish guy recognised me as my face was 'everywhere', I've no idea what site he visiting but then once you put photos up on the web you have to realise they can be shown anywhere without much care!
I would be surprised if Routh wasn't standing decent with those guys, although Dr Who fan (who typically wears converse) as part of the peter davison 'cosplay' always has (mostly) a great pose in photoshoots I've seen him take.]
Modeus said on 13/Jun/15
I doubt hugh jackman has ever been a true 6 ft 2 guy
Jason said on 12/Jun/15
Rob, who do you think would be taller between him and Chris Hemsworth?
[Editor Rob: I think Hemsworth would edge him. ]
Andrea said on 11/Jun/15
Rob, would you have given to him if you didn't meet him? I mean, if you compare him to the other guys on here, he really can look a big 6'3! He looks at least as tall as The Rock (in some pictures he actually looks taller), he looked a solid inch taller than Hugh Jackman, when he was only 38, so still near his peak! if you wanna be coherent, you should list him 6'3.25! Of course, he's not that tall though. I think he's just a solid 6'2.5, as listed!
[Editor Rob: possibly 6ft 2.75...I think he has a good physique and posture, I would say 6ft 2.5 could be his after tea height, he may well be 6ft 2.75 at lunch range.

Remember he was 'outgunned' by a Dr Who fan who again I saw this weekend up close and I'd guess him in 6ft 2.5-3 range Click Here. The other thumb beside him is a guy I spoke to actually a few times recently and that guy is about 181-2.]
joe 193cm night said on 3/Jun/15
bad angle and ended 6'2.5
Andrea said on 3/Jun/15
Well, if you wanna believe in a 6'2 "peak" Hugh Jackman (that picture was taken in 2006, so i doubt Hugh had lost any height), Brandon does look a big 6'3 guy at least, yeah... But i dont think he's more than his listing! Good chance 189 is his low, though. A big 189 is what i think he'd measure!
OneNamePlease said on 30/May/15
189 night
out of bead nearly 6'3.25

I have routh 189cm strong but Momoa prace aprnas 6'3.5 beside himClick Here
Aza said on 16/May/15
Brandon does look 190 cm but maybe it's the hair. He does look genuinely taller than Dwayne Johnson.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/15
Rob, maybe 190cm is closer?

I think he'd be similar to Welling.
[Editor Rob: he would be that height for a part of the day but I think he drops to 189, but then that is his low.]
Hypado said on 13/May/15
Brandon Routh's height is 6ft 2.5in (189 cm)

A strong 188 cm and a weak 189 cm guy.
Andrea said on 30/Apr/15
Noway 6'3.5 or even 6'3... He's clearly shorter than the 191.5 challenger with Rob! I can buy a solid 6'2.5, though... I don't think he'd be under 189 if measured!
joe 193cm night said on 30/Apr/15
Aswin MK,Rob, already showed the difference between 191.7 cm measured face Brandon is much shorter
[Editor Rob: Routh I think is still a solid enough 6ft 2.5 guy, he may well measure 6ft 3.4-5 range out of bed.
In person he was nearer the 6ft 2.25 guys height rather than the 6ft 3 3/8ths guys height.
Aswin MK said on 28/Apr/15
I am sorry but I am afraid Rob is a bit off the mark with the 6 foot 2.5 inch prediction here. Brandon looks a solid 6 foot 3 not a weak 6 foot 3 as some people mention here.

The height difference between Rob and Brandon Routh in this picture is the same between me and my brother. He is a tall 6 foot 2(2ish+) and I am around 5 foot 7 inches. I have actually measured his height from the tip of the nose to the top of his head and guess what the measurement was 7.5 inches. So, if Rob is 5 foot 8 as he claims, I am adding a minimum 6.5-7 inches here (Don't believe me, find a similar size person and measure yourself. The height comes close to 6 foot 3 or 6 foot 3.5. I can safely say Brandon is a strong 6 foot 3 inches and perhaps half an inch above.

He's looking 6'3 in that photo with you. He looks like a big 6'3 dude.

Andrea, the picture was also taken very closely increased the brandon high
Andrea said on 8/Mar/15
I know, that's why i said Zach might actually edge him out, barefoot... But i'm not so sure there would be almost an inch between them! Brandon has high shoulders so he could appear taller than he is at times... Zach looks a weak 6'3 next to Rob and Jared Padalecki!
joe 193cm night said on 7/Mar/15
Andrea, Brandan has the advantage footwearClick Here
joe 193cm night said on 7/Mar/15
Andrea, the Routh shoes gave him a considerable ilpulso, but I agree 6'3 flat for zachary
Andrea said on 6/Mar/15
Joe, i saw Chuck and saying "he was noticeably less than Zachary Levi" is just BS! They actually look quite similar and Brandon can look taller than him, but Zach has less shoes in most of the episodes so maybe Zach might edge him out, nothing "noticeable" though. I still doubt Zach would be 0.75 inches taller than him!
joe 193cm night said on 5/Mar/15
another dumb guy giving wrong information you did not see Chuck Zachary was higher
Jonathan said on 3/Mar/15
Routh is bigger than 6'2.5" more like 6'4", he seems a bit bigger than his Chuck co-star Zachary Levi who is 6'3". My most educated guess would be 6'3.5".

Rob who looked taller in person, Brandon Routh or Jack Coleman?

Judd said on 22/Jan/15
Perfect example of a 6'2.5" guy!
Tunman said on 1/Jan/15
Another example of the perfect pic,Rob,it seems that both of you stand at quite optimal posture.I mean you reach slightly over his nose which would be like a solid 16cm for a head probably near 24cm.Am I wrong?
[Editor Rob:
Unfortunately I can't photograph myself, but this is as close to ideal.

Hi Rampage,my american friend met brandon routh in philadelphia comic con and she comes upto my eyebrows.She has an autographed pic with brandon where she is like 2 to 2.5in shorter than him.She is a solid 181-182cms and claims that they had about equal footwear.He doesn't look over 6ft 2 with her.If he is slouching a little bit or she is tip towing who knows.Unfortunately she refused to share the pic.Personally I would say he is definitely more than 6ft 2.Even with bollywood star akshay kumar who is about my friend's height,he was 2.5 to 3 taller than brandon the movie Kambakkht ishq.You can check this video.You can skip to 1:20 and at 1:45 to see their height comparison.

Based on this picture alone, I would say around 6,3. Closer to 6,3 than 6,2 is probably the case. I mean if you compare this photo to 6,4 listed jason momoa he looks around the same height. I always get him mixed up with Tom Welling....

I think he can measure close enough to 6'3 to claim it ;)
189-190 is fine
Ras_ said on 29/Dec/11
Sorry for the double post,I ment the weakest would be 188,so 188.5/189cm. sounds pretty accurate.
Ras_ said on 29/Dec/11
Maybe if he stood up straight as the 6'1.5 dude he would be a bit taller but my guess is that hes nothing more than 187.5/188.5 bf,without the big hair.
Clay said on 13/Dec/11
Thats how 6'3 stacks up to 5'8.25, no?
ChiasmataX said on 13/Dec/11
@Ryan nah, he looked taller because of his muscular frame and his hairstyle, knock both of them of and he will look as tall as the 186.8cm guy from height challenge.
Ryan said on 4/Dec/11
he does look significantly, taller than you, ROB. id give him 191 as he claims.
xyz.reg(186cms-187cms) said on 3/Dec/11
@Rob With the challenger 8 he barely looks about an inch taller..your height challenges have surely helped u and as well as others to judge pics more accurately..i don't know why did i get the illusion of 6ft 3in from this pic..he is definitely shorter than that..!!
ChiasmataX said on 22/Nov/11
Much more accurate listing compare to other legit 188cm guy on this site. Usually they are listed at 6 feet 3 or 6 feet 4 (like Jim Parrack).
johno said on 21/Nov/11
It looks pretty likely that the 189cm would be the tallest. The thing is, he's 189cm with a 5'8.2 rob, what about a 5'8 rob?
johno said on 21/Nov/11
Another thing, with someone of robs skull length, the distance between skull top and nose tip is near 6.25 inches. Thats probably average of a 9.5 inch skull. Robs head reach's the 189cm challengers nose tip, with routh, robs head reaches the nose but slightly higher up and routh has a shorter nose then the challenger, all these minor differences could make the difference between a 6'2.5 evening height and 6'2 or slightly shorter.

Infact, doesn't hardly any noticable height over the 6'1.5, challenger. 6'1.75 could be his max evening height.

what about the other challenger who came out 189cm, him and routh come out pretty much exact same height next to rob Click Here
Well with challenger 8 he does look fractionally taller then his 6'1.5 height but not 1 inch. But with the 189cm challenger, yeh routh comes close but note, rob is listed 5'8.2 there not like, 5'8 like here and i believe the challenger might have slightly more height on rob as compared to routh. All these differences could add upto 0.75 inch but not definent. Routh could be a weak 6'2 in the evening, rather then a, 6'1.75 but it would be interesting for an exact comparison between challenger 8, brandon routh and the 189cm challenger.
Alex said on 21/Nov/11
Min 6'2.25, max 6'2.75. Most likely 6'2.5

hi rob..somehow this guy looks taller than 6ft 2.5in..Would easily be 1-1.5in taller than i think he is 6ft 2.5in minimum..i don't think he looked shorter than this when u met him in person...!!

[Editor Rob: I think the 6ft 1.5 Challenger...holds up pretty well compared to Routh, who has at least 1/3rd inch more hair than challenger 8 did.

Was going to say samething rob. I must say, the height challenges to do raise the bar when it comes to height. Much more strict and obviously correct. 6'1.5 is taller then 95% would have imagined on here compared to you. And yeh, challenger 8 does measure up well compared to routh.

6'2 might be spot on for an evening height
[Editor Rob: there's more people who I've measured but they've not wanted to be in a height challenge. It's useful to have reference heights, I think it helps a bit.]

ANDREA[ITA] said on 24/Oct/11
If hes 6'2.5, he doesnt go under 6'2.25 in night! Hes gotta be a bit more than 6'3 at morning, 6'2.5 in the noon and 6'2.25 by night!
lorne said on 23/Oct/11
Oh sorry, I think I misread your comment. Thought you we're saying UNDER 6ft2!!!
LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
Alright close 189here. But i remember someone pointed he had wore boots here. Maybe thin boots. Even he is 6'2.5 with rob in picture noon, i bet on night he goes down 6'2 again.
lorne said on 17/Oct/11
LAN Jiao says on 30/Sep/11
don why people bringing him up 6'3. his frame did look his previous listed height 6'2 and compare how tall 194 ryan mcpartlin look next to rob is like brandon look 6cm shorter than mcpartlin.

No he doesn't. He looks 5cm shorter. Rob's listing is spot on, just visit Richard Brooks page.
Shaun said on 12/Oct/11
Very solid 189cm, I reckon the top of his hair is around 190cm mark here but its pretty thick!
Legend said on 10/Oct/11
He's tall, but again I would hate to have a head like that, which is why I never say I want to be taller than 6'1.5 or so.

Thanks Rob.

he could very well be 6 ft 2.75
RealityKing said on 15/Sep/11
Rob what do u think of VEGAS's analysis on 22 February 2011. Do you think after reading his theory and after seeing the pic Brandon could be lesser than 6 feet 2 and a half inches. Do you still rule out a flat 6.2 or 6.2 and a quarter for Brandon.
[Editor Rob: the lowest guess I think is 6ft 2.5, I don't think he looked less than that range. There is more chance 6ft 3 than 2 I think]
RealityKing said on 15/Sep/11
Vegas i read u r analysis on Brandon and Rob's height, its super. I conclude he is almost exactly 6.2. Do you think ROCK could be exaclty 6.2 as well? I think not because when i see their pics together, their eye level may be exactly the same but the ROCK has a bigger head and no hair advantage, so i wana conclude ROCK tiny bit taller may be 6 feet 2 inches and a quarter, though not likely 6.2 and a half. Want to know if u agree with me. Ur analysis and reasoning is cool man.
Maximus said on 10/Sep/11
Legit 6'2"...doesnt need lifts at all.
RealityKing said on 9/Sep/11
Viper Bro and others I am talking about the scalling pic, posted by ROB bro on 18th November 2010- for member named Diego. Cheers.
Realityking said on 8/Sep/11
Guys im sorry fr being so specific, but this helps us make better comparisions.
In the Pic, ROb bro is tiny bit more than 5.8, so even if u guys say Brandon is only 6.2 removing the hair, he cud be eeny meeny bit more likely 6feet 2 inches and a quarter.

Rock has no hair or little, i m assuming he is quarter an inch taller or equal. But if we give benefit of doubt, we can ROCK bro is 6feet2 inches and a half.

I think ROCK and ROUTH make super base comparisions especially-IF rock is taken as 6 feet 2 and a half inches, since many like comparing ROCK with other celebs.
Realityking said on 8/Sep/11
larc bro, why cant u say ROCK is 6.2 and a quarter to 6.2 and a half inches, becuz ROB sir's pic is is lot better than the pic in ROCKS page, no offense to Super mamun bro.

Wish all take routh as base fr comparision with other celebs, cuz this pic is too gud.

Wish to the see the already posted scaling pic of Brandon Routh and ROB again where it shws Routh being ONLY quarter of an inch taller than 6.2. I cud be wrong as i may have seen the pic long back. That scalling pic is too good, so we can make ROUTH as base hero for comparision with other celebs as well, Cheers.

VIPER bro we rock. our comparisions r similar and closer to truth in regards to ROCK, ROUTH, GLENN, PAUL WALKER.

He's Taller than John Schneider for sure and Schneider is listed as 6'3.

brandon was listed 6ft2 and on his word. although rob gives him higher maybe because just an impression he looks 189ish. i watch a few of his film he does not suits 190cm or 189cm. 188 is just fits right for him.
Chameleon said on 10/Aug/11
189 no more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/11
189.5cm or a strong 6ft2.5. His hair in the picture with Rob makes him look roughly 192cm
(like 191.5cm).

5'8.18758596 said on 5/Jul/11
Rob, I don't know, his arm-level would indicate he's got nearly 8 inches over you, maybe his head could be bigger than average and made him 1 full inch taller than listed, hence 6'3.5 instead of 6'2.5??
[Editor Rob: he never looked that tall to me.]
5'8.18758596 said on 5/Jul/11
Maybe 6'3 Rob??

it the same case with jack coleman because they both look a legit 6'2 people think they should be listed at 6'3 so that now guys who are 1,87m can be upgraded to 6'2 by the legendary upgraders of this site!

Routh was standing next to Christian Bale at the MTV movie awards, and he totally towered over Bale is six feet tall flat. I could swear that Routh is 6'5"!!! Its surprising he is 6'2.5" tall.

6'2 for Bale is beyond ridicolous

Cranberries (6 ft. 3.25 evening, 17 years) said on 17/May/11
He doesn't look like a "mamouth" to me, juststic. In general, Routh's unique build make him look taller. Brandon Routh's head and shoulders are about the same size as Rob's (shoulders might be an inch broader, max). I struggle to see him at anything over 189cm.
Phil said on 17/May/11
The most telling photo of Brandon Routh is the one where he is standing next to Christian Bale, Bale was once purported to be 6'2". If Bale really was that tall than Routh would be 6'6". Who knows maybe Routh was wearing boots that made him even taller. Regardless 6'2" seems about right for him, 2 inches shorter than Reeve. Routh always appeared to be a leaner and somewhat smaller version of the Reeve Superman. The new guy Henry Cavill, is even smaller.
James said on 17/May/11
juststic says on 3/May/11
@James, Yeah but he just looks like a mamouth there with rob, even considering the hair advantage, but 6'2 is bordeline very tall people need to remember that, really tall is 6'3+ no doubt, and giant is 6'7+ this is all true i'm not lying to you

yeah i agree he looks huge next to rob. this just goes to show how tall a strong 6'2 guy really is. and i agree 6'2 is borderline very tall. people say 6'2 is not really that tall becuase guys who are between 6'0-6'1 claim it.

Sorry to all the fans stating that he is the "perfect Superman"...I don't think he looks anything like Supes. I think that based on his non-Superman photos I would never have chosen him. Zachary Levi would be better than Brandon Routh. But I'm happy with Henry Cavill, who looks NOTHING like Marc Anthony!

As for his height, I think 6'2.5 is pretty accurate.

Looks 6'2.5. The size of a persons' head may vary, Brandon got a bit bigger head than the general person, hence you can't apply the "where the top of robs head is in comparison to x".

gorgeous guy without doubt, nice height too at 189cm, tho being 6 cm taller would be much much better..

Rob comes up to about the top of his nostrils, so that's about 6 inches differences. So 5ft 8in + 6 inches = 6ft 2in.

Brandon is 6'3, if Jason Momoa is 6'4.
Rodrigo said on 31/Dec/10
He may actually be half an inch shorter, he looks much taller in this photo due to his hair, which migh give him 2 cm more. He's kinda skinny for his height so it gives the illusion of more height.

'Rob' a solid 6'2.5" guy who can easily get away with 6'3" or a little over. But he is not even a 6'3" yet. A rock solid 6'2.5". How come somepeople get measured properly & some don't get measure properly.

sprint84 said on 30/Jun/09
Same photographic evidence as Zachary Levi, so I'll just repost a message from his page (replacing Levi's name with Routh's of course)..........

Actually, wowuguys, that would make his head 12+ inches, which is impossible given that it is the same height as Rob's head (approx. 9.75") in the photo.

Routh has 2/3 of his head height over Rob meaning he is 6.5" taller in the pic (2/3 x 9.75 = 6.5). If Rob is 5'8-8.25", Routh is 6'2.5-2.75".

I know it's just one photo, but my best guesses...
6'4" in shoes, 6'3" in the morning, 6'2.5" mid-day.
J.J. said on 24/Jun/09
solid 189cm guy exactly 6'2.5" in this photo

Big T says on 17/Sep/08
I have a 10" long head at 5'10 1/2". Am I a freak? A monster?
ABSOLUTELY NOT. My head is around the same about 10-10.5 and 24" around. I'm (5ft11ish weak 6ft max) and there are plenty guys with much much bigger heads than us. I do have a long head but not a wide head. From my the bottom of my nose to top highest part of my head is 7". To others Make sure you measure to top of the head not hairline. Balance a big book on your head to get the measurement and down to your chin. I thought mine was 11" until I did the book thing.

If his he 7" from nose to top of head then I could see 6ft3. I'm positive that guys head is 10" if Robs is 9.5 because I've scaled it up and yes there is also about 7" to the top of his head from the bottom of his nose.
