6'2 1/2 max with Rob. May just be 6'2 flat, no less though. This is assuming Routh's eye level is 4.5 inches from the top of his head.

I also met Brandon Routh in Mk in May and i noticed he was wearing boots with high backs. I am 6ft 1 and in the photo he looks a lot taller so I'm guessing in flat shoes he wouldn't be as tall. Just need to meet the Rock now and my life will be complete.

I have a 10" long head at 5'10 1/2". Am I a freak? A monster?

I know I have a big head but I didn't realize the problem was this bad!
Anthony David said on 10/Sep/08
He looks 6'2" to be precise.

"ok that was totally gay...I recognize a good looking guy when I see him, but I never say or even think the word 'sexy' in regard to him, my brain just doesnt go there. Not that there is anything wrong with that."

If you believe there's nothing wrong with that, why did you comment on the guy being "totally gay." Obviously it did bother you since you replied to his comment and even explained how your "brain just doesn't go there". Dude grow up.

I'm just curious, is a quarter of a inch really a big deal? lol
fluxboy said on 1/Aug/08
Are you guys for real?

Like ...

Naw, there's no way he's 6'2.5" ... I put him at 6'2.25"

No way man, he's 6'2.75"!

I'm just curious, is this like a fetish or something?

My cousin met him in L.A., my cousin is a solid 6'2"and 1/4 in flat feet. He said Brandon Routh was atleast a half inch, or more taller. The funny thing he said, is that they were both wearing black converse all stars. He said Brandon was very easy to speak to and a gentleman to all the fans. His best guess onhe height was that Brandon was atleast 6'2" and 3/4 and my cousin is not the type of guy to talk about height. But I was able to get it out of him.
Guy said on 15/Jul/08
Tnx, luv ya. fr educating us abt the camera angles & the difference it makes, yes the inch is quiet big, thats why i doubt him being 6.2 and a half. Rob considering how big the inch is, are u 100% sure he is 6 and half inches taller? I think is the best pic in this whole forum, so much i visit this page first. and i always assume 6.2 or 6.2 and 1/4 max. PLs answer my query. tnx
BlackRay said on 15/Jul/08
Yes with dress shoes on the Rock is about 193 cms tall, hence 6 ft 4in. Brandon Routh is then 192 cm 6ft 3.5in also in dress shoes.
jack said on 13/Jul/08
the rock is 6'4''
Viper said on 2/Jul/08
Santa Clause and the tooth fairy is more real than the Rock at 6-5.
Yaspaa said on 2/Jul/08
How do you know Rock is 6'5,he never looks it however the wrestling commentators said he was so it must be true
RobertJ said on 1/Jul/08
No he isn't.
Anonymous said on 30/Jun/08
The Rock is 6'5". that's definite. That I know.
Marty said on 22/Jun/08
I think that the top of Rob's head is a bit above the tip of Brandon's nose. I see at least a .5 inch difference between the top of Rob's head and the tip of Brandon's nose if not .75 inch,

[Editor Rob: with that short hairstyle take away about 7-8mm (0.3 inch) to find where my skull is.]
Marty said on 19/Jun/08
I kinda see a 14 cm difference between Rob and Brandon. Measuring the width of Rob's hand and assuming that it is about 3.5" you then get approximately 1.54 hand width difference in height between Rob and Brandon wich if you multiply by 3.5" gives roughly a 14cm difference, give or take .5cm wich would put Brandon at about 187cm ( rounded from 186.7 ) so in my view 6 ft 1.5 in
Guy said on 14/Jun/08
I THINK brandon has 6 inches and a quarter or more likely 6 inches from his nose to the top of his head not taking his PUFFY hair into account. we can see 4only 4 inches frm his middle eye point to the tip of his head removing haie to be 110% accurate. May be 4 inch an quarter nt more.
Halb said on 12/Jun/08
In those pics the Rock is taller. Routh is standing tall and straight, Rock has a slight lean, both have same shoes on flat surface and Rock is taller.
RobertJ said on 10/Jun/08
Joe257 - yes, they made him about 6'4'' with thick heeled boots since, I'm assuming, they wanted to keep continuity since Reeve said he was 6'4'' in Superman the movie. Of course another may be they just wanted him to look bigger.
Joe257 said on 8/Jun/08
Did they make him look 6'4" on Superman Returns? I remember him being noticeably taller than most people in the movie. He towered over Kevin Spacey.
Yaspaa said on 7/Jun/08
top of the head to tip of the nose is about 6.5" making Brandon 6'2.5
big kid said on 6/Jun/08
definitely not 6' 3"
Lego said on 5/Jun/08
i reckon his true height is around 6'2 to 6'2.5 max not quite 6'3
Marco said on 4/Jun/08
I agree with ola, i think routh is exactly 6'3, no way less. I can see those almost 20 cm over rob.
Yaspaa said on 21/May/08
No Rob page so Routh's will have to do,thanks a lot mate.
Yaspaa said on 20/May/08
About 6.5 inches to the tip of the nose so 6'2.5 looks right,6'3 for Rock.
Viper said on 19/May/08
That floor does look like it might slope towards that drainage area.
Viper said on 19/May/08
Is it me or is Rock closer to the camera in that pic as well?
guy said on 19/May/08
I am happy viper belives me. I belive You have great talent in recognising precise dude buddy. I observed u comments many times. They seem almost perfect in etimates.
guy said on 19/May/08
Pic 1- Click Here

Bro. Is nt the floor higher marginally where rock is standing. The floor is nt 100% flat.

Vegas, the debate with rock being taller is not dead.

[Editor Rob: there is 2 pics were they are same distance and those pics actually make it hard to see much difference between the two of them. If Rock is 6ft 4 routh to me looks like he'd have to be close to that aswell...]
Viper said on 19/May/08
"A man who was at times listed at 6'5 playing college football is not in the 6'2 range imo"

Thats not true Vegas. JJ Arrington who is in the 5-8 range was listed at 5-11 in high school and in college.
Da Man said on 18/May/08
In the last two pics the camera is tilted heavily in Rouths favor.
guy said on 18/May/08
I think there might be exactly 4.5 inch difference so he indeed acurately 6.2 and a half.
guy said on 18/May/08
Guys do u think Routh's head from middle of eye line to tip of his head is 4 inches ??, 4.5 inches?? or 5 inches?.

There may be 5 inches. If there is 5 inches he is no doubt 6.3 inches.
guy said on 18/May/08
Hi Viper, there are also some pics which i would show u to please vegas & others. Vegas posted them previously. he posted them to prove previously rock is taller.

Pic 1- Click Here

Pic 1- Analysis-

This is similar to Pic 2- I posted in my previous post having routh & rock analysis. Rocks appears taller. why???

Ans- I belive Rock shoe heel is marginally bigger than routh heel as shown clearly in Pic2 of my previous analysis. Secondly, The floor on which rock is standing is little higher than the floor on which routh is standing. Once feel with you heart and imagine routh coming into rock's position ( on the little higher floor) with the head held high like that , wearing rocks foot wear.
Wouldn't he also look tall like rock did.

Pic 2- Click Here

Pic2- Same feeling like pic 1, Here rock is more closer to the camera.

Conclusion- There are pics rock taller, routh look taller, but routh has more disadvantage. Hope my analysis saw the whole picture to prove they are indeed 100% equal. or atleast 99.99999% so rock shud be down graded to 6.2 and a half. tnx.
guy said on 18/May/08
I am assuming Hulk hogan is 6.3 presently, seeing their fight on youtube if he stood straight next to 6.2 and a halh rock. I am aiming 100% accuracy, though.
Hogan looks 100% similar to Lou ferringo in pics, This proves it. For visitors visit lou ferringo page which shows both are similar in height like routh & rock.
Viper said on 18/May/08
Actually, Routh really does look taller in the last 2 pics.
Viper said on 18/May/08
Both are 188-189cm at the absolute most.
guy said on 18/May/08
I Got an excellent pic1. Click Here

Pls bro, study my following case points carefully.

Pic1.Here routh looks 1 mm taller than rock, even though we imagine routh is as bald as rock.

Click Here

Pic2- here we can prove rocks shoe soles are marginally bigger than routh. You might think rock as disadvantage as he is standing in a slightly lower floor, but only 1 leg is on the higher floor. But there are many many pics posted by bro vegas, ray & others down below frm 9 april 2007 or so, where rock stands on a little higher level & closer to the camera. I think u ll agree the floor is not 100 % flat.

Click Here

Pic3-Despite rock being close to camera, having bigger heal, standing on a slightly higher floor. he looks equal routh in this pic. Just imagine once by heart he went little back to stand right next to routh would he be equal??

Click Here

pic 4- what does it say?///? I just want respected folks like rob, danimal, viper, glen , vegas to think he is equal to rock if not taller.

Click Here

pic5.This is just fr fun.

Conclusion- My goal was to prove Both are equal 100% and pray rock be brought back to 6.2 and a half. I love both of them.
Yaspaa said on 15/May/08
Da Man, it looks like there is no more than around 1.5" difference in circumference and head height for most normal guys,it's funny because my mate's head is tiny ,like a grape,I couldn't believe his 22.5" around measurement. I had the same friend over last night aswell as another friend (5'11 190lbs),his head height was approximately 9" and 23.4" around. They both think I'm nuts lol.
Da Man said on 13/May/08
23 3/16" head circumference here. My head was actually 8.95" long, so really 9".
Yaspaa said on 6/May/08
Yes,my friend has only a 8.3" head but his circumference is 22.5.
Yaspaa said on 5/May/08
I have a friend coming over tonight who is 5'9 but has a small build (135lbs ,33 years old). I'll see what his head sizes are.
Yaspaa said on 30/Apr/08
I can only find one site on the net that gives average male head height and according to them its 7.76",where do they get this lame information? Just measured the 'circumference' of my head and it is 23.5" average is a more believable 22.7".
Da Man said on 24/Apr/08
I just used Rob's method for myself. There was exactly 4.5" to the center of my eyeline, exactly 6.5" to the tip of my nose and my head is 8.9" long at 6'2.5".
Yaspaa said on 23/Apr/08
Anyone out there got a ten incher lol.
Viper said on 23/Apr/08
I have a 9.5 head at 6-3.
Yaspaa said on 23/Apr/08
Phew,that makes me feel better,I was starting to feel a bit freaky,anyway,hope you hit that 196.
ronyo98 said on 22/Apr/08
I used Rob's method and here's what I got: my head is 9.1" big, from the tip of my nose to the top of my head there's 6" and from my eye level 4.75"

[Editor Rob: that's pretty typical, usually 9-9.25 but for your size of 6ft 3 9.5 might be more average. Women can have just 8-8.5 inch long heads because the jaw is smaller than a man's in many cases. Actually if you go to nora zehetner on this site that lady has barely even 8 inch head]
ronyo98 said on 22/Apr/08
By the way, growing up I was never thinking about my height. And I was kinda small until I hit'ed puberty, I remeber being 168cm at the age of 14,5. Then BUM. My younger brother on the other han was always big, the biggest in his class, and we always thought he would be at least 195cm but has reached "only" 193cm. My dad is 186cm and mom 177cm
ronyo98 said on 22/Apr/08
I'm felling great about my height.And to tell you the truth I wanna be even taller.196cm would be ideal.but even with 191cm I'm taller then 90% people on the street.My height just make's me feel good and it give's me more selfconfidence. And not to mentioned that girls love taller guys ;)) Adding to the equation exerceising, both mentally and phisicaly, and being always ready to help people is the way I wanna(i trying)to live. Best regards ;)
Yaspaa said on 22/Apr/08
About 6'4 early afternoon. I've just measured my head using Rob's technique and it's about 9.75ish". My legs aren't particularly long for my height,I'd probably be under 6'3 if it wasn't for my bobble head lol. Being this tall has never really sat well with me ,I'm quite reserved in the real world and don't really like being on display but my 6'5 pal loves it and constantly feels the need to remind me that he's 6'5 like it's some kind of achievement. My wife is 5'9 and I've got a 3 year old son and he's already twice the size of the other kids his age,I'm worried about him ending up too tall. How do you feel about being so tall?
ronyo98 said on 22/Apr/08
Cool tip Rob, thanks. I will try that
Yaspaa said on 22/Apr/08
ronyo98.....5.15" comes just under my eye. Can there really be this much difference? I'ts freaking me out a bit.
Yaspaa said on 22/Apr/08
Thanks for the reply dude. This could put a spanner in the works. I've been using my 6.5" balloon head (nose tip to top of head) as a base for judging others,I'll have to come up with a new technique lol. Take care.
ronyo98 said on 21/Apr/08
Yes i'd made a metric to ft conversion error. 171.5cm is my chin level, 177.5cm(5'9.4/5") the tip of my nose and 181.5cm my eye level. I have a smaller forehead so that's why there's only 5.15"(13cm) and not 6 or more from the tip of my nose to the top of my head. morfology mate ;)
but still comparing my friend(who is a legit 176cm) to me, and Rob(who is 173cm) to Routh results that the top of their head comes to our nose. even if Routh forehead is bigger that mine that can be by 3cm. so 188-189cm should be Routh's height
Yaspaa said on 21/Apr/08
So from the tip of your nose to the top of your head is 4.75"...I'd measure again mate. Around 6-6.5" is the norm which from the picture indicates Brandon at the given height. Your mate looks a bit under 5'9 aswell considering your leaning slightly.
ronyo98 said on 19/Apr/08
Well i'm 6'3.5"(192cm) in the morning and a 6'3(190.5cm) at evening. At evening 5'7.5" comes to my chin, 5'10 1/4 to the tip of my nose and 5'11.5 is my eye level. So, according to the picture above, I belive Routh can't be 6'3.
This is me with my 5'9.5 friend Click Here
Charliemoto said on 19/Apr/08
is it me or he looks way taller than BLACKIE LAWLESS? from W.a.s.p

Blackie is a 6'4 yet looks way shorter than this actor wtf

Brandon must be at least 6'3 if not higher.
RobertJ said on 16/Apr/08
Routh was maybe an inch taller in other photos but Hugh was wearing trainers which don't give as much heel as Routh's dress shoes. Routh is probably a half-inch taller than Jackman flat so that picture is no surprise but you still gotta consider footwear.

Yaspaa said on 11/Apr/08
Yeah,Rock looked slightly taller.
Da Man said on 7/Apr/08
The Rock was the same height or marginally taller than Routh in those pics.
Anonymous said on 5/Apr/08
saw some pictures of routh with the rock stand close..the rock was bill as 6ft3 but looks that tiny 1 ~ 2cm lower routh height.. if dwayne johnson `the rock` was 6ft3 routh should be about 6ft4..
Mike Zappa said on 4/Apr/08
I agree he is like 189 Im 6-2 and have 2 friends who are 5-8 and we have the same height difference The Rock is not a strong 6-4 so this seems correct
Da Man said on 30/Mar/08
There isn't 7" there, a ~6.5" gap would put Rob at Routh's nose, ~7" slightly below it. Rob is above Routh's nose here.
footballed28 said on 27/Mar/08
honestly, I see a 7 inch difference there...and keep in mind that even at night, Rob is a good 5'8....so assuming this pic was taken at night...that would make Routh between 6'2 3/4 and 6'3
Anonymous said on 20/Mar/08
Gary you are right perhaps 6'2.5 in morning and a legit 6'2 later a day.
Anonymous king said on 10/Mar/08
yeah this guy does look a solid 189 beside 173 rob..
Gary said on 28/Feb/08
Im 6'2 and 5'9.5 is at my eye level and 5'8 at the tip of my nose, i think he is 6'2, I think he is 6'2 even
Gary said on 27/Feb/08
5.8 comes to my mouth and im 6'2 without shoes and about 6'3 and a half with shoes
Markus said on 27/Feb/08
6ft 2.5, is this his morning height or what?
kalel said on 26/Feb/08
well, in a promotion on E! for superman Returns he said he was 6"2 so I guess that he is.
Josh said on 23/Feb/08
Yeah looks about 6'2 , 6'4 is a joke.
Slim THugga said on 23/Feb/08
Now way he looks 6 foot 4

6'1'' is a RIDICULOUS claim! I mean look at how tall he looks??! I have 5'8' friends, and know the difference! This man is obviously 6'2'' or 6'3''! but when yiou're that tall, what's the difference????
RobertJ said on 19/Feb/08
yeah Routh's 6'1''...please the dude is minimum 6'2'', all evidence supports this.
Anonymous said on 19/Feb/08
he looks only 5 inches taller than rob.
Johnny Boy said on 19/Feb/08
6'1 or 6'1.5 (mathematically) by this photo.
Anonymous said on 19/Feb/08
he looks 6'2 flat to me lol.
Markus said on 19/Feb/08
Why does rob has his eyes and nose cut out? I hate pics like this, they creep me out!

[Editor Rob: imagine if you had to put up with seeing my whole ugly mug, you'd be even more creeped out!

no, it's all about the "celeb heights" on here, folk really only need to know I'm 5ft 8 and my head is "9 and a 1/3 inch" in most pics. If they want they can figure out height differences from that or from using the celeb's head.]
RobertJ said on 13/Feb/08
Yes but he could very well be close to 6'3'' flat but I think the current listing is most accurate.
Viper said on 11/Feb/08
Rob is right in that he looks 6-2 exactly in the picture next to him.
Korben said on 11/Feb/08
Rob, in these pics how tall is the cameraman / or how high is the camera stand, and how far back is it about?

Thanks

[Editor Rob: this guy is around 6 foot, although sometimes I see him with cowboy sized heel.

Usually these guys are 3.5-4 foot using a decent wide angle.

Better explanation: - if the celeb is tall it's likelier the photographer will stay tall so the lense is maybe eyeline-hairline zone. If the celeb is my height or shorter, he usually shoots with poorer stance, so the lense could be in mouth-eyeline zone.
]
venus said on 16/Jan/08
Sry 2 say, but he's 6'2, he seems to be stretching his neck next to Rob. The top of Rob's head is up to his nose. His hair is high also, great height disguise.

[Editor Rob: visually he really comes in at 188cm mark.]
Robbie H said on 12/Jan/08
he looks at least 6'3 to me in this pic
AAAA said on 8/Jan/08
I had no idea who Molale was, but the photo was pretty good and when I looked him up his height was consistently listed at 6'4, and all the sites made a pretty big deal about his height, so it seemed plausablie he was 6'4. Who is he anyway
TNTinCA said on 4/Jan/08
Might even have a bit more height. I don't think he is quite 6'3", but very close.

He was a good choice for the Superman role. Although the movie was a little underwhelming, I thought he did a good performance.
Alex2 said on 4/Jan/08
He loks gigantic there with Rob, like 6'5 just look lol
Sam said on 4/Jan/08
he does have the superman look. :P i'd say brandon is a good 6'3 flat.
JohnP said on 4/Jan/08
It looks like Molale would be a good 5 inches shorter than Mane actually if both stood straight (Mane is bending much more than Molale, as you can see).

Where is that guy who straightens up people in pictures when he is needed? lol
Vegas said on 3/Jan/08
its also debatable whether molale is a full 6'4, i suspect he is not because 6'8 tyler mane has approx 5 inches on him Click Here
patrick said on 3/Jan/08
AAAA's pic shows a noticeable difference between the 6'4 man and Brandon Routh. Still remains to know what shoes the first one was wearing! I am taller than "taller people" depending my shoes...
Your opinion please.
RobertJ said on 3/Jan/08
Routh is wearing basketball shoes so he'll have slight advantage but we don't Molale's footwear. I've always said 6'2.5'' minimum for Routh, I think 6'3'' is more accurate though.

Anonymous said on 20/Dec/07
compared to other 6'3 celebs like Billy Corogan and Tony Hawk. Measuring Head to nose. Routh looks to be 6'3 and then some.
patrick said on 3/Dec/07
There are 16.5 to 17 inches between them; Brandon has a long head. That puts him at 6'2.5 to 6'3. Take a right scale please!
supes78 said on 30/Nov/07
Well considering Rob met the man and verified that he is 6'2.5" tall, any more photographic evidence to dispute that seems like a moot point.
patrick said on 30/Nov/07
Sorry supes78, but "no", in any case! I repeat that you have no idea of how deceptive is a tiny change of angle and the use of a wide angle! Nothing is easier than making believe someone is taller or shorter than cinema shooting or photography (even easier!). Until you observe it yourself, you won't be convinced and that is why I will not still insist about it.
Ask anybody knowing that stuff better than you and you will see.
That pic is not the best, this is the worst ever to gauge each of tese men!
supes78 said on 29/Nov/07
Well, considering the photo with Beckham was taken during a charity soccer match that both of them played in, it's a safe bet the footwear was similar. I'm not saying it's an ideal shot, but a 6'3" person should look taller, telephoto lens or not.
patrick said on 29/Nov/07
Guys: that pic is typically the kind of one not being able to be taken as a proof! The other guy could even be shorter, I assure you I can make appear him taller than Brandon and for one simple reason: they use a telephoto lenses!
Any photographer, even an amateur, will be able to confirm it! I confess I am surprised in seeing people caught out like that with a so simple and commong normal thing, not even a "trick"; just a way of shooting people!
By the way I pratice photography for 40 years.
RobertJ said on 28/Nov/07
your right he doesn't BUT we can't see footwear or the ground.

Guys! Wow, you, AAAA as DaMan, impress me once more! So may I add something? Tyson as all those natural very big guys we all meet from time to time, is indeed mesomorphic but mesomorphic does not mean Tyson type.
I mean, mesomorphic defines a type of people having the ability to gain (or loose) a lot of muscle and also, fat BUT not in the same proportion and never as an endomorphic one would do it. (I mean
AAAA said on 16/Oct/07
Yeah.... he was insanly musclar with so little bodyfat. I think in his prime he was 225 lbs of solid muscle on his 6'1 frame. That is quite large anyway, but he had almost no fat
Blackmax said on 16/Oct/07
Tom Welling and Brandon Routh look exactly the same height, but Welling maybe a bit taller or visa versa. They both do look 6ft 2 1/2ins.
Da Man said on 16/Oct/07
Bo Jackson, that's definitely a good example of a true meso. Remember those Black and Blue posters?
AAAA said on 15/Oct/07
Excellent Point Daman. I remeber reading somewhere that he was already 200 lbs at the age of 13 and could bech over his own body weight. Now that you got me thinking, Bo jackson is pretty close to a true meso then. I read that he didn't even start to work out until after his hip injury, and he was a an outstanding physical specimen, same as tyson, at a real young age. And he looks even bigger now
Da Man said on 15/Oct/07
AAAA, you're thinking of the ectomorph somatype. Endomorph is the larger, heavier, rounder body type. I agree with you that both Welling and Routh are combinations of mesomorph and ectomorph body types, with Welling leaning more towards mesomorph than Routh. Mike Tyson I think is probably a good example of something close to a true mesomorph.
AAAA said on 13/Oct/07
LOL....Tom looks like a Lumberjack in that photo Da Man. I could see welling maybe being a bit shorter, but I tend to believe they are the same height.

What I really find funny is how lean Welling was at the start of Smallville, and what a Bear he can look like now. Routh has a really thin natural frame. outh is more of the endomorph(I think this is the skinny one but not sure, so please let me know if I am wrong), and welling seems closer to mesomorph. both men are in between meso and endo, but closer to extermes than the other. Has there ever really been a True mesomorph. I have seen plenty of pure ecto's and endo's, but I doubt I have ever met a pure meso. I also think Routh is older looking than welling. Welling easily looks like he could be Clarks age in the show now. I still can't believe he is 30
Da Man said on 10/Oct/07
Do you think Welling would be marginally shorter than Routh or something like 1" - 1.5" shorter, Viper?

I could see Welling being .25" - .5" shorter, but it wouldn't surprise me if they are the same height either. Either way, I think Welling could probably break Routh in half.

Id bet the house that Tom Welling is shorter than him.

i think it's closer to 6'2, i mean editor rob's head reaches the bottom of routh's nose, so a 2 inch nose and 4 inch forehead give you 6ft2...assuming footware was the same.
what was routh wearing ?
dmeyer said on 3/Oct/07
i agree could be 190 cm
Cairo86 said on 3/Oct/07
He doesn't look as big in width as he did in the movie. 6ft 2.25-2.5 is what his height appears to be.
6'3.5'' JK said on 2/Oct/07
He looks 6'2.5'' - 6'2.75'' with Rob
AAAA said on 2/Oct/07
I read 6'3 215lbs at the time of superman returns, though I'd really like to hear the part where they said he was 6'2.5 in superman returns. Where was that. And Rob, I agree, I wish you could get one with welling, though it would end a lot of debate, I'd really like to see it
Danimal said on 2/Oct/07
Minimum 6'3" and probably MAX 210-220 pounds.
Da Man said on 2/Oct/07
Patrick, I bet he's lost about 20 lbs. of muscle since filming Superman Returns.

patrick said on 2/Oct/07
He looks minimum 6'2.5 and could easily be 6'3; bout his "muscles", even though he is not as bulky as he appears in SR, don't forget he wore a "special" suit in the movie and was working out daily. Chris Reeve was not the same out of his Superman films! Besides, look attentively at his arms: they are sinewy and that kind of Tshirt, furthermore very dark, hides all relief. He's indeed, not as he was but I cannot find him "skinny" for all that! Sure Tom is "thicker" than him but who could doubt that even before this pic?
ray said on 2/Oct/07
Guys dont see the shoulder, but the head point. Nothing wrong in saying 6.3 inches for routh. Rob Thanks a Ton, Hope u get one with Josh duhammel too.
ER. said on 2/Oct/07
To be totally honest he doesn't look THAT much bigger than me in that picture. I weight 165 - 170 lbs. - and me and him are the same height. I'd say he's MAX 190 lbs like Alex commented - and nothing more. 250 pounds is absurd.
Bad Radio said on 2/Oct/07
he's 6'2.5 ..they even mentioned this in the superman DVD. He had to wear special boots in the movie to reach that 6'4 mark, cus Christopher Reeves was 6'4.
steph said on 1/Oct/07
really? on magazines they boasted that he was 6 4. but then again, never trust those gossip magazines haha.
OutBenchThis said on 1/Oct/07
189cm appears correct..could be 188cm but you could argue 189cm aswell. Finally put it up Rob! Well done mate! :p

I'd say that makes Rock no less than 189cm but I'd be having trouble buying into any bigger than 190cm for Dwayne.
Viper said on 1/Oct/07
He doesnt look like a 250 pound linebacker.
AAAA said on 1/Oct/07
And Rob, there was only my mental clock, which I credit to my (as I am always told) freakishly accurate memmory. And in my defense, I have no defense. I trust you, but I am incredibly OCD

[Editor Rob: maybe some thought that pic was never going up ;) Just glad routh was willing to do such an event. I only wish Welling would do one after smallville ends. I know an organiser tried to get him but he isn't considering it. I'd expect Tom to look very similar in height...]
AAAA said on 1/Oct/07
On a side not, I really thought he would have a bigger frame, even if he did lose a lot of the muscle he gained. I also thought his shoulders were wider. And that is a strange haircut
AAAA said on 1/Oct/07
That man has a big damn chin.....Absolutely 6'2.5 maybe 6'2.75 like before. Either way, could easily pass for 6'3 or a bit more to casual observers, unlike us
6'3.5'' JK said on 1/Oct/07
He looks pretty tall there, Rob he has more inches on you than the Phelps twins and they're listed at 6'3'' on this site?!?
derek said on 1/Oct/07
he looks an easy 6'3 i mean look at the shoulder difference
supes78 said on 1/Oct/07
Routh looks skinny in that photo proving once again the man was nowhere near 250lbs as was reported during the time of SR. Next to Rob, Routh looks 6'3" max, but 6'2.5" seems spot on. Don't forget that Routh has more of a 'fro than Rob's clean cut hairstyle.
RobertJ said on 1/Oct/07
YES!!! It's finally here! He doesn't look less than 6'2'' so 6'2.5'' is spot on, if not slightly more.
Alex said on 1/Oct/07
I am just reading the 250lbs estimates for him, LOL.
Looks anywhere from 190-200lbs. I'm 190lbs or so and I look bigger than him and I'm 2 inches shorter than him.
Da Man said on 1/Oct/07
Yet another agreement, 6'2.5" almost on the dot assuming comparable footwear. Was your footwear comparable Rob?

Looks like he's lost a lot of mass since SR.

[Editor Rob: yes, I'm not going to argue he's really as big as he looks, luckily it's as close to an ideal photo I probably could have got. He had a brown shoe, I had trainers, not much difference. Many folk commented on how tall he looked at that event. I don't know what they were expecting, a 5ft 11 superman :)]
lillo thomas said on 1/Oct/07
yep in the pic the diference between brandom and rob look a little over 6 inches the guy look 6-2.5
miko said on 1/Oct/07
looks as high as 6"5 here - at least 7" taller.
dmeyer said on 1/Oct/07
realy look 189 190 cm with you rob 6'3 is very arguable
Ed said on 1/Oct/07
Barefoot 6ft2.5, maybe even 6ft3 is a perfect estimate for Routh! There's definitely a good 6 plus inch difference between Rob and Routh. Now when adding his big heeled Superman costume boots, you can see why he looked 6ft4ish in SR.
5'3" Aix said on 1/Oct/07
Does look like 6'2.5". Thanks for the pic, really hot guy!
Alex said on 1/Oct/07
He does look a legit 6'2.5 with Rob. I see a little over 6 inches there.
Franco said on 1/Oct/07
this pic remind me of me and Giorgio my friend....

considering this picture Brandon looks 193cm and you look 175-176cm.

brandon is definetely 188-189cm but not a full 190cm.

We (my husband and I) saw him in person when we were in LA. Weird Hollywood moment when we were actually in a restaurant in LA and there was a movie star present. Anyhoooo.... He's as tall as my husband slouching around and in normal shoes which makes him just a hair under 6ft 3.
RobertJ said on 8/Aug/07
yeah but if all celebs wore them than there would way less debates on height.
Anonymous said on 6/Aug/07
converse shoes suck
Anonymous said on 6/Aug/07
this site just goes OTT sometimes, half the people on here that are downgraded 1cm from their claim (i.e. listed here as 174 even when they say 5'9/175) I would bet my ass actually are that 1cm more

seriously, who actually walks with the perfect posture that you have when someone measures you?! I hardly believe it's even possible to tell if someone upped their height by 1cm unless they are stood right next to someone who is that 1cm more so you can see the difference. and that's IN PERSON I think it's pretty hard to tell 1cm, so debating about whether someone is 6'2.2 or 6'2 3/8 from TV and films just blows my mind

I mean I don't even believe you could tell in person if someone truly is 174 and not 175, shoes can make that difference!! and hair!! (I mean seeing where the top of their head exactly stops, not height from hair). I'm 175 myself but a couple years ago at college (I'm 19 now, it's POSSIBLE I may have grown a CM or 2 in the last couple years but I really, really doubt it, I don't think I've grown since like 15 or something, but I can't say by measurements cause I first measured at like 18 and a half or something, I'm just going on the comparison to my dad who is basically same height as me) some guy told me I wasn't 5'9 but "about 5'8", and it's like... I have bad posture for a start I know that, and I've always worn Converse!! pretty much the flatest (decent) shoe you can get, so I probably have never "looked" a full 5'9, but I know for a fact I wasn't "about 5'8" at the time, if you get where I'm coming from... I mean fair enough you do get people that just take the piss with it like that guy from the 70's show, Will something, who claim's over 5'9 and from a pic on this site looks closer (I'm not gonna say he is 5'7 for a fact or antyhing cause I'm bad at judging heights etc anyway, well, specific heights) to 5'7!

this isn't meant to be directly aimed at anyone and I'm not trying to offend anyone but seriously...
Blackmax said on 25/Jul/07
You guys are taking this acurracy thing too far, come on 6ft 2 3/8 is 6ft 2 1/2. How do you know anyway, until you see him actually measured. Your talking about 0.5 cm. I say He's 189cm same height as myself.
guy said on 13/Jul/07
I'm not convinced he's a 6-2.5 guy. I watched superman recently and saw him in interviews. I can't say he's anymore than 6-2 3/8.

You lost me patrick.
patrick said on 25/May/07
Anyway, this guy has "the touch", something I couldn't qualify but meaning "magic"; I think as Tom Welling, the other current Superman, he doesn't care of how tall he is and accepts himself as God made him, nothing more; I feel him being bet 6'2.5 and, why not, 6'3; I really thought The Rock was 6'3 MIN. So, no more than with Smallville, we cannot use SUP. returns as a way to evaluate his height; In his caes, for sure, they did anything to make him look at least as tall as Chris Reeve, deal! I am quite sure, Chris was nevertheless taller than him but i can mistake!
RobertJ said on 24/May/07
His Superman boots added about an inch when he was in the suit.
l0ck n l0ad said on 23/May/07
he seems pretty tall, nothing under 6'2. could someone just explain to me how the hell did he manage to look a solid 6'4" in superman returns? before checkin his height here i was sure he's one of the skinnest 6'4"ers i've seen lol
RobertJ said on 18/May/07
Are we gonna get a photo rob?

[Editor Rob: sorry, eventually it will, I promise. It does exist, trust me and he looks tall ;P

I've got ten pics from 2005 I still haven't put up, mine do go up slow except those I take with my own camera. Glenn gets so many pics that I give his precadent.]


AAAA said on 13/May/07
Rob, you've got a photo with routh??!!!....Please post it soon
Da Man said on 13/May/07
Pretty good story, Rob. It's good to hear that Routh is a down to earth, humble guy. We should expect no less from Superman. lol
RAY said on 12/May/07
nice work , routh is just .25 inch taller than hugh jackman. but he is not shorter than rock anytime.
Da Man said on 11/May/07
Editor Rob, just curious as to what Routh's response was to you mentioning the 6-4 newspaper mentions? Did he find it funny or what?

[Editor Rob: I was saying that how he'd grown from his six three to four and I expect by superman sequel he'd be six foot five. Yes he laughed a little, also at his ancient website, I told him there was no hiding from it, the archive had gobbled it up. I hinted at him he'd also better stand tall for photoshoot, you know, live up to the expected six four. I think he remembered in shot when I sais 'stand tall now']
RobertJ said on 8/May/07
He's been downsized!?
RAY said on 8/May/07
the last pic of (Mr vegas) proves rock is standing on a higher surface as he is raising his head , hehe and also the school board behind them proves the floor is not even and rock has an advantage.
RAY said on 8/May/07
the below photo proves rock is standing on higher surface and the after school behind them also proves it.

RAY said on 8/May/07
rock's shoe's look more heeled too ( see all pics by mr vegas pls ) in addition to he standing on higher surface ( after school board behind them proves the board is slanting ) and being closer to the camera. superman is taller.
RAY said on 8/May/07
VEGAS FOR GOD SAKE SEE THE FLOOR AND THE SEE 1.WHO IS CLOSER TO THE CAMERA (ROCK), 2.I MEAN U HAVE TO SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY THE FLOOR IS SLANTING BY SEEING THE AFTER SCHOOL BOARD BEHIND THEMMMM. THESE two points prove rock is not taller than ROUTH irrespective of rock being quoted 6.3 here. i personally believe rock is 6.2 flat and routh is 6.2 feet.25 to 6.2 feet.5 inch flat.
supes78 said on 8/May/07
Wow. So Routh has been downgraded again back to the widely publicized 6'2.5" height. I would have to agree with that, but I can see why people would think he's 6'3". He's got great posture and the fluffy hair so it's hard to gauge accurately at times.

[Editor Rob: Suffice to say original 6ft 2.5 is closer to the truth. But a proper 189cm at night time...

I may also add, on the Sunday morning I was siphoning through about 200 of the Routh photoshoot pics trying to find my saturday one and I saw a handful beside people whose height I know. He was 1.5-2 inches shorter than a guy who is a very strong 6ft 4, but he looked nearly 2 inches taller than a guy who is 6ft 1, although I don't know whether that guy was wearing hugh jackman style shoes or whatnot, routh definitely had brown shoes on which looked 1.2. 0% chance of lifts]
TheJerk said on 8/May/07
Certainly a well proportioned 6-2. He doesn't seem that "buff", but more so cut. Like a well trained yoga instructor.
Vegas said on 8/May/07
Ray that photo sucks

based simply on this photo the Routh/Rock debate is dead its a clear 0.5-1" in Rocks favour Click Here Ray if Routh is 0.5" taller than Rock i'll eat my hat.
Da Man said on 8/May/07
They look very, very similar in the pics.
Viper said on 8/May/07
Well, I dont see how anyone could 100 percent come to the conclusion on who is taller. They both look the same height when you come down to it. Rock's whole body structure looks shorter than Routh's and hes closer to the camera as well. But Rock offsets that with the bigger head.
Da Man said on 8/May/07
Ray, I think your fighting a losing battle. The Rock is not shorter than Routh.

[Editor Rob: there's a lot of shots, in a number rock is marginally closer, they are too close to call, for once though the Rock isn't really slouching like he can do]
RAY said on 8/May/07
I think 6ft 2.5 is correct for routh but rock is 6.2 and not taller than routh.
RAY said on 8/May/07
this following pic again shows that the floow is not completely flat , i mean it is slanting just observe the AFTER SCHOOL BOARD behind them , it proves that the ground isnt flat , therefore rock is on slighter higher ground and closer to the camera.
RAY said on 8/May/07
the pic i posted below shows rock is closer to the camera and cud be shorter if stood right next to routh.
RAY said on 8/May/07

RAY said on 7/May/07
I mean the floor is slanting dude , look closer u ll also find rock closer to camera
Da Man said on 6/May/07
RAY, I don't know what you are talking about. The Rock is NOT standing on a higher surface in any of the those pics. The "cemented part" is actually lower than the rocky-surface as it is part of a rainwater-drain. Notice the drain grate by the Rock's foot?
RAY said on 6/May/07
I mean he is not shorter than routh , i wish they were edit options.
RAY said on 5/May/07
ROCK may not be 6.3 but he is not shorter than ROCK. OUT of the four pics of routh with rock two of them proves rock is is standing on a higher surface ( cemented part) which clearly shows surface wasnt even and secondly rock was closer to the camera in the two pics. I personally believe both rock and routh are equal or routh little taller by 1 to 2 mm or sumthin to be dead accurate.
supes78 said on 5/May/07
Check out this pic of Routh next to 6'3" Steve Howey from the 'Reba' TV show;

Routh definitely isn't above 6'3" that's for sure.
RAY said on 5/May/07
HELLO GUYS,

All are saying ROCK IS TALLER THAN ROUTH, but if u all the pics between them u ll observe rock is STANDING AT A HIGHER LEVEL. I n one pic i saw between them rock stand on a cemented part which is higer , i think different i feel both are the same or routh is little taller.

Rock is not only on higher level of ground but nearer to the camera.

I tried to get the pics bt it says to use tiny url, bt i m very sure brandon is not shorter. sum one pls upload the pics where we can see rock on cemented level of ground and thus he is at higher level and closer to the camera, thanks IN ADAVANCE.

[Editor Rob: there is 2 pics were they are same distance and those pics actually make it hard to see much difference between the two of them. If Rock is 6ft 4 routh to me looks like he'd have to be close to that aswell...]
patrick said on 16/Apr/07
We all owe the truth not to vae enough landmarks to make solidly up our mind about his height; After all, that wonderful guy is known just with one film, no more; So, pictures are our only way to finally guess it.
In SUP. returns he wears thcik soles presumably to match his glorious predecessor; I am not sure; he's very tall but how, i don't know; need further informations; He seems shorter than the Rock by just few cm;
paulG said on 14/Apr/07
Rock has about half an inch to 3/4 of an inch on routh, it's obvious from looking at that pic... routh is 6-2.5 at most !
Blackmax said on 14/Apr/07
I apologise RobertJ, I didn't notice your post, which states the Rocks head is tilted back. Their both the same distance away from the camera so it's not a deceptive view.
Blackmax said on 13/Apr/07
What your all failing to mention is that the Rock has his head slightly titled upwards hance his eye level would be higher than Rouths, if he held his head straight it would be dead level, due to his high forehead I'd say he's slightly taller, maybe 0.6mm, their shoulder level is dead even also.
patrick said on 13/Apr/07
I agree with you RobertJ even though i respect Vegas opinion; Sorry Vegas, i couldn't open your photo !!!
RobertJ said on 12/Apr/07
He's a bit closer, his body is turned more toward the camera and he's definitely tilting his head back. I still think there the same height. If Glenn could get a pic that would be so awesome.
Vegas said on 11/Apr/07
Rock is not closer to the camera in this photo Click Here yet he is still 0.5" taller despite Routh big head of hair. Rocks eyes are at a higher level and his forehead is at a much higher level than Routh's. One could easily make a case for Rock being a full inch taller in that photo but as it stands I think there is 0.5" between these guys with the 0.5" in favour of the Rock.
patrick said on 11/Apr/07
OK, but what if Brandon would have been in the right ?
The, very nice, Rock is significantly closer to the camera; I made myself a lot of portrayals and was always amazed how important was the difference between the real size of the backward person, ALWAYS shorter than he or she really was.
In these pictures, look how appears the line of the background notice board: it looks tilted because of perspective law. Almost everyone is "framed" this way.
Vegas said on 9/Apr/07
Only in one of the photos does Routh measure up to the Rock Click Here
all the rest:
rock is taller Click Here

Routh is a big guy at about 6'2.5" i think those pics with the superman wax work proves that but Dwayne Johnson is slightly taller by about 0.5" or so.
Blackmax said on 9/Apr/07
Yes I do believe your right Viper, the do look the same height in the second photo, like I said previously maybe the Rock has a 1cm advantage. I don't think either is a legit 6'3"(191cm). I'd say 6'2.5"(189cm) definitely for Routh. 1 cm is such a slight difference though in height. The rock has a high forehead thats why I'd say 6'2.75(190cm) max.
Viper said on 7/Apr/07
Nobody with a straight face could say 100 percent sure who was taller between the 2. I sure couldnt. Both looked the same height when all is said and done.
AAAA said on 7/Apr/07
Well, my friend is a legit 6'3, I know I can't prove that to you guys, but If you ever met him, you would know. I mean, he was behind the statue, so that may have a bit to do with it, he has a shaved head so there isn't any hair adding another .5 in ,and he wears thin soled shoes ( no more than 1 inch of additional lift). Never the less, he was smaller. here is my take


I see about a 1 in. (maybe like 1.25 but who can really see that) diff between my friend and the statue, if we moved him to where Routh was standing, instead of behind the statue. I maintain he is a solid 6'3, plus his shoes would put him at 6'4. That makes the statue about 6'5.25. Routh was about 1in smaller than the statue. He was standing about 6'4.25 next to his statue. You can't see his shoe's real well, as he is wearing some kind of boot cut jean. most dress shoe's have a 1.25 in heel, which would put routh at 6'3 barefoot.
Blackmax said on 7/Apr/07
Observing the RobertJ pics of Brandon with the Rock, there maybe a 1 cm difference, with the rock slightly taller. I think the superman actor is 189cm tall 6ft 2.5in tall and the Rock 6ft 2.75in. Hugh Jackman looks 6 ft 2in exactly.
Vegas said on 7/Apr/07
Viper we have a number of pictures of the Rock and now Brandon Routh standing next to their wax work. In the Rock's case he was the same height as his wax work (amazing that) and the real Brandon Routh was roughly ~0.5-1" shorter than the superman wax work due to the big heeled shoes on the wax work. So we know that both the Routh and the Rock wax work are correct height.

Now AAAA's 6'3 friend is shorter in comparison to the Superman wax work than the real Routh himself is; so what does that tell you?
1.AAAA's friend is not legit 6'3 OR
2.Routh is more than you are proclaiming he is, which is 6'2

I tend to go with number 2 seeing as he had over an inch on 6'2 Hugh Jackman and 5" on 5'10 Kevin Spacey.

If the Rock and Routh had not appeared with their wax work then you might have a point; as it is, they have, so you don't have a leg to stand on imo.
Viper said on 7/Apr/07
Vegas, If you actually take those statues seriously then you need your head examined. Take it with a grain of salt.
Vegas said on 6/Apr/07
Viper the real Brandon Routh is standing next to the wax work in 5 photos, so yes we can compare it to the real thing. Put those big heeled superman boots on the real Routh and hey presto both the wax work and Routh would be the same height and this is because madame tussauds physically measured Routh from head to toe for the model.

Stop being so sceptical about everything Viper.
AAAA said on 6/Apr/07
Yeah Viper, I agree with you there. Plus it includes the muscle suit "look" underneath it, so it is somewhat exeragated. See Routh actually next to it puts it in better perspective.
DaMan said on 6/Apr/07
I missed the Superman wax figure display by a week. I was at Madame Tussaud's just before it was debuted, would have loved to have gotten a pic with it.

The heels on that Superman wax work are huge. Superman is the only guy I didn't get a picture of while I was in Madame Tussauds, didn't even stand close to it either ao not a clue on its height. Would have been interesting to see my 6'4 friend near it though. He towered Arnie and was looked taller than Michael Jordan wax work.

I don't know man. I can't believe how big routh must be. My friend is a freakin TE as southern connceticut and is listed at 6'5 250lbs. He admits the height is bs and he is "only" 6'3 230, but he was noticebly smaller than that statue. He was about 1 ft behind it in the pic, and he was wearing really thin soled shoes, but trust me, he is a MASSIVE guy in person.

[Editor Rob: see what I wrote on andre giant page, it should be easy enough to do.]

Anonymous said on 23/Mar/07
I think Hugh is 6'2 flat and Routh is 6'2.5. It's hard to tell when they''re seen together coz Routh always wears normal shoes and Hugh wears this soled shoes.
Viper said on 23/Mar/07
I think Hugh and Routh are the exact same height, 6-2 flat.
AAAA said on 21/Mar/07
well I think routh actually has maybe a quater inch to a third of an inch, and if he was in regular dress shoes that could give him another .5 inches for almost a full inch.
And ever since the posture training for Superman, he stands better. Jackman sometimes tends to stick his head foward abit.
RobertJ said on 19/Mar/07
These were posted some time ago which show Routh having a 1/2 inch-1 inch on Hugh but Rob said that Hugh could be wearing thin soled shoes as he sometimes does.

RobertJ said on 8/Mar/07
That true rob, he had a movement coach during Superman returns and said because of that he slouches less.
RobertJ said on 8/Mar/07
Yet all evidence points to him being closer to 6'3'' hmmm.

[Editor Rob:

Routh does have very good posture, he's always got a good stance. Guys like farrell, giammata...when they're 70 they'll have hunchbacks. The folk saying colin is 5ft 8...in 40 years they'll be saying 5ft 6!]

He doesnt look quite as tall as 190. Hes closer to 6-2.
dmeyer said on 7/Mar/07
190 cm seems right
Vegas said on 1/Mar/07
here is a photo of Rock and Routh side by side and Rock 0.5" taller Click Here
Vegas said on 28/Feb/07
Rock's forehead is much bigger than Routh's that is clearly evident from all the other photos you posted.

As for Rock being closer to the camera in that shot I can't see it, both look exactly side by side to me.
RobertJ said on 28/Feb/07
How is it clear? Rock is closer to the camera and you photo shopped Routh's hair higher than it should be on The Rock. Look at that forehead!
Vegas said on 28/Feb/07
Rock has between 0.25" and 0.5" with Routh's hair, pretty clear there
Routh 6'2.5"-6'2.75
Rock 6'3
RobertJ said on 27/Feb/07
Even with Routh's hair, they look the same height.
AAAA said on 26/Feb/07
OKAY...that pic of the rock with rouths haircut is hysterical!!!! photo of the year so far
Viper said on 26/Feb/07
Is that floor even flat? Looks like it tilted yet that is probably the weird camera angle.
RobertJ said on 25/Feb/07
I'm interested in seeing The rock with hair Vegas, I need a good laugh.

Here's another pic, this one slightly better with Rock a bit more back. They still look equal in height and it seems the Rock has a habit of tipping his head back.

Vegas said on 25/Feb/07
There is none that Routh is taller, only his hair is taller and they are standing right beside one another in one of those photos (no advantage for Rock etc). Rock has a bigger head that is quite clear. Dont worry I will put Routh's hair on the Rock head when I get a minute to show you how much difference that would actually make.

Hmm. After seeing Routh with the Rock, I have to concede that Routh might be a tad over the 6'2.5" mark he was originally described as. Either that or the Rock is shorter that 6'3", which I just don't beleive. I still wouldn't give Routh the full 6'3" because he clearly has puffier hair than the Rock, but 6'2.75" might be closer to the truth. This is the kind of photographic evidence that I wish more posters here would use to back up their height claims instead of referencing clips from movies or TV.
AAAA said on 25/Feb/07
Well, I was going by his new upgrade... Even with the eyes of a hawk it is hard to pinpoint .25 inches unless you have back to back with close ups of heads
Viper said on 25/Feb/07
I dont see it Vegas. Rock really does look closer to the camera though. Plus its slightly tilted to his favor. I dont know. Couple of those pictures arnt the best to compare because of the angle. Routh's head does look higher up than Rock's. Routh looks a hair taller in 1-2 of the others. If anything they are the same exact height or Routh is quarter of an inch to half inch taller. Rock needed to take a step back to really compare.
Vegas said on 25/Feb/07
Click Here RobertJ and Viper; Rock is clearly taller there by about half an inch, look how much bigger the Rock's forehead is. Routh's 2" hair is putting you guys it seems. I would downgrade Routh to about 6'2.5" actually

If Rock had Routh's big hair, we would be saying the Rock was a clear two inches taller.
Viper said on 25/Feb/07
Routh might be 6-2 1/2 - 6-2 3/4 and Rock 6-2.25. Ive always pegged Routh at 6-2.25 at the very most.
RobertJ said on 25/Feb/07
Really AAAA? Does Brandon look shorter? Although Routh has fuller hair, The Rock is standing closer to the camera and side by side I see Routh w/ a possible .25 inch advantage. I don't know though, either way there pretty much the same.
AAAA said on 24/Feb/07
WHOA.... They look perfectly identical. Brandon may be .25 inches shorter, but their shoulders, chins, and eyes line up perfect
RobertJ said on 23/Feb/07
I find these recent pics of Brandon and The rock very interesting.

First lets observe footwear, more or less the same.

You'll notice that The Rock is closest to the camera yet in all the pics they look the same height or Brandon's a smidgen taller. Now based on this, I think rob you gotta either downgrade The rock or upgrade Routh to 6'3''.
ron G the true said on 15/Feb/07
i think back in the day when Routh was listed at 6 foot 2, that was him just trying to fit into that niche. 6 foot 2 sounds good. in truth, i believe him to be 6 foot 3, but that sounds on the large side. i think you nailed his height at 6 foot 2.5

[Editor Rob: 6ft 2.75 could be closer, that height popped up once]
J-Dog said on 21/Jan/07
It's easy to understand why he may appear really huge at times, at 6'3" men tend to look even bigger than their actual height. I noticed the same with professional MMA fighter Josh Barnett.
J-Dog said on 20/Jan/07
Damn Nick Cannon is tiny in that picture.
6'2.5'' JK said on 20/Jan/07
I think 6'2.5'' listing is proper accurate for him, although he can look 6'3'' at times i think 6'2.5'' is bang on.
RobertJ said on 20/Jan/07
ok....? Btw Superman was 6'2'' during the silver age, after the crisis, Byrne upgraded him to 6'3''.
MAYDAY said on 19/Jan/07
In the comics superman was ALWAYS listed at 6'3 and 225lbs. On a few occasions his weight was 235lbs, but Supermans accepted height was always 6'3.
Daman said on 17/Jan/07
I read an interview with Routh where he claimed to be 217 pounds during the filming of SR. He also claimed to to have dropped to around 210 pounds around the time SR was released in theaters, it's believable IMO. The guy seems pretty truthful about his height and weight IMO. He himself has also claimed to be 6'2.5" as well which is also very believable.
