How tall is Bruce Boxleitner

Bruce Boxleitner's Height

6ft 2 (188 cm)

American actor, best known for playing Captain John Sheridan on TV series Babylon 5 and Lee Stetson on Scarecrow and Mrs. King. In film he plays the title character in Tron, and had memorable roles in The Babe and Kuffs. Bruce mentioned his height in a 1984 St Petersberg Times, saying "I guess I can afford to go up 5 pounds or so. I'm 6-feet-2", although he has also claimed to be 6ft 3. In the LFCC he had a little more footwear and in the Collectormania photo a good 1/2 inch more.

Stronger 6'2" at his peak. I always followed his career since Tron, and sincerely he looked a good inch taller than Jeff Bridges in that cult movie.
Considering the posture difference, he could have been 189 cm, 6'2" and a half or at least a quarter, in the afternoon. He probably was 6'3" out of bed.
Today I'd quote him 6'1/2", 187 cm tall.

Still looked every bit of 6ft2 in 2008
Sh0ckeh said on 18/Feb/23
He was a perfect 6'2 in Babylon 5. Jerry Doyle outedged him by literally 0.25, as he stood 6'2.25.
festus said on 1/Oct/22
6'1.5 in the first pic and 6'1.75 in the second. He only looks a legit 6'2 in the last pic whereas he has half inch of footwear advantage. 6'1.5.

Tall, but 6'3" is a lie. 6'0.25"
Allie said on 4/Sep/22
In his prime, I could see 6'3 being a morning measurement and 6'2.25 by bedtime. He looked a strong 6'2 to me.

5'7 and a bit said on 11/Jul/22
Looks like Bill Clinton.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/22
Tron is all the evidence you need to support 6ft2 and change peak for Bruce. I'd dare up it to 6ft2½ based on how he faired with Bridges (solid 6ft1½ in the 80's).

Now I think he could still measure close to it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/22
Rob, out of Boxleitner, Coxx and Doyle who do you rat as tallest?
Editor Rob
I found it tricky to spot the differences, if any. Sometimes I thought because of Doyle's hair being very flat, it might have actually turned out that he could have measured a tad taller.
Allie said on 15/May/22
6'2 or 6'2.25 at his peak.

Probably under that now that he's in his 70s.
Darksol64 said on 5/May/22
Looks very close to 6'2 with Rob and easily wakes up over that, but if he were to be put on the stadio he would probably be nearer 6'1.5, tenth or two over possibly.

I'll be generous and give 6'1 3/4
berta said on 14/Nov/21
yeah peak there we all now that there is zeeeeeeeeeeoooo chanse that he is under 188 cm and that means that his peak was more than likely 6´2 1/4 ( ryan reynolds and ben afflecks height) todaty he is down to just under 187.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/21
Rob, ever consider giving Bruce a peak and current?

I think 6ft2¼ peak should be strongly considered if you watch Tron and Babylon 5 and now 6ft1½ (with a chance of 6ft1¾). Still looked 6ft2 with you and Jenny but those were 12 and 8 years ago respectively
Editor Rob
It's possible 6ft 2-2.25 range peak and 3/4 inch less now.
Elene said on 3/Sep/21
6’1.75 maybe
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/21
Tallest one looks at least 3in taller, near 6ft5 is likely but remember Bruce is likely to have lost a little height by now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/20
This guy would make a perfect Bill Clinton...or Tom Wilson!
recapa said on 31/Oct/20
how tall do you guess his sons are Click Here
Editor Rob
canlook near 6ft 5, 5ft 10-11 and 5ft 9-10 range there...however the ground may be in favour of the left side a little.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/20
With that being said, I think a peak Boxleitner was nothing under 6ft2 and quite likely a bit over it
Jkiller said on 17/Jan/20
Definitely looked 6'2 on babylon 5. Probably right under these days, sitting at about 187cm.
Eric W Tam said on 5/Jan/20
This guy makes a perfect Bill Clinton for a biopic. 6'2 it is, lol they even have the same peak height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/19
Wilson would edge out Bruce for sure. Tom might still be 188-188.5cm now while Bruce is 187cm
Dream said on 17/Sep/19
Rob, curiosity sake, who looked taller, when you met them: Thomas F. Wilson or Bruce Boxleitner?
Editor Rob
Last time I seen Bruce at Glasgow, I think he was a bit under 6ft 2...Wilson has a genuinely big head in person, but still looked no less than a 6ft 2 range, I'd say he is a bit taller than Boxleitner today.
berta said on 3/Jul/19
weak 189 peak ( he was very easy taller than jeff bridges and he was 187) Today i think he might be 187,5 cm
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/May/19
I new his name rang a bell, (ting!🔔) and the reason for that is that Bruce used to be married to Melissa Gilbert. She seems to have a thing for tall guys!

From these pictures, I think Bruce looks 6ft2. 😁👍
berta said on 4/Jan/19
Rob i thinkhe coul have been 1/4 over this liting peak. But now when you use 1/8 listings, shouldnt he get 1/8 over this to start with? i now avtage guess is barely 188 but people are going with the pictures of him above i guess.
Editor Rob
It's arguable in the 90's he could have measured it.
Zampo said on 20/Oct/18
Looks 6'1.5-6'1.75 in the photos. Don't really see him measuring outside this range.
MAD SAM said on 31/Jul/18
Peak would had been 188.5 cm or 6’2.25”, that’s why he claimed 6’3” once cause he’s over 6’2” guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/18
Peak: Strong 6ft2
Today: Weak 6ft2

Still looks at least 187cm w/h Rob...
Tarinator 6'1.75 said on 11/Jan/18
Pulls off 6’1.75” real well in this photo. Although 6’2” would be the best fit as for his height because photos can sometimes be deceiving in terms of estimating ones height.
berta said on 10/Dec/17
188,6 peak. there was more than 1 cm beetween him jeff bridges. 2 cm seems about right. today he is 187
Anonymous said on 24/Nov/17
He's 6'2 he isn't standing tall in either photo. I used to love this guy in the scarecrow and Mrs King in the 80's as a kid.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 20/Nov/17
Rob, how likely is 6’2.25” peak?
Editor Rob
it's arguable, at times he could seem a big 6ft 2 range.
Jordan87 said on 14/Nov/17
Not Over 6'1" In either photo. He Does not make 6'2" , that's clear.
berta said on 28/Sep/17
at his peak he was minimum 188 but i think he was closer to 189 today he is down to 187 cm. thats my guess
Unsub 5'10 said on 13/Sep/17
Possibly 6'1.75" in those pictures with Rob, and 6'2.25 in his younger years.
Napi said on 1/Aug/17
Hey rob how many inches is that between you guys on the the bottom picture?
Editor Rob
about 5 inch range, I think he has lost some height through his 60's.
Jordan87 said on 14/Jul/17
Looks about 6'1". Top of his head is visible through his hair in the top pic. He doesn't come to 6'2".

However, his naturally thin kinda wiry Frame could get him 6'2 impressions.
andy said on 10/Jul/17
He totally looks like Clinton, both facially and heightwise!
S.J.H said on 5/Jul/17
Bottom picture 6'0.75 , top picture 6'1.5 that will be 6'2 for Bruce Boxleitner peak. 6'1.5 now
Pierre said on 19/Jun/17
By the picture next to Rob and Jenny he looks around 6"1.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/17
Boxleitner: 6ft2¼(188.6cm)
Bridges: 6ft1¾(187.3cm)
Hedlund: 6ft1½(186.7cm)

All at peak…
Sonnecker said on 10/Jun/17
I always followed his career after Tron.... I could say he was 6'2.5" in youth, until he was 50 for sure.
Nowaday, he could be still 187 cm, maybe 6'1.75" . Tron lives!!
World Citizen said on 25/May/17
186 187 cm
Timur9717 said on 7/May/17
He is looking taller like 20 cm in picture So I would say 191 cm.
Headbanger said on 4/May/17
He was a strong 6'2
Dale said on 18/Apr/17
he is not a full 6'2 that's for sure (for 6'2 guy a 5'10 would come at the eyebrows)
he is 186-187
Jordan87 said on 20/Mar/17
Right around 6'1" nowadays. Don't be fooled by his hair. Was 60 years old when the fist pic was taken, maybe 6'1.5" In His prime, and he rounded up to 6'2" when he reported his height. Pretty typical and I would do the same If I was a 1/2" Shy of 6'2".
Unsub 5'10 said on 10/Mar/17
He looks 1.87m next to Rob, a few fractions over 6'2 in his prime, 6'2.25".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jan/17
Boxleitner: 188-189cm
Bridges: 187-188cm
Unsub 5'10 said on 12/Nov/16
James Arness had 4 inches on him in ' How the West was won', peak height 6' 2.25" without any doubt.
berta said on 25/Oct/16
i think he was 6 foot 2 1/4 peak and now 1/4 under 6 foot 2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/16
Hedlund is also 186-187cm, IMO. Peak Boxleitner would have had 2cm on both Hedlund and Bridges
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/16
189cm peak if Bridges was a solid 187cm (which looks reasonable)
Mark said on 22/Aug/16
I would consider 188 or 189 cm a peak. He edged out bridges and stood well with Garrett Hedlund (A solid 187 cm - 188 cm person who actually edged out Hugh Jackman with barely thicker footwear).
Peter 179cm said on 6/Aug/16
On a sidenote,if that's how tall commenter Ice really is,i can't understand how in the world he feels average or even short,lol...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/16
Yeah, somewhere in the 186/187cm zone today. At least 188cm peak though. Edged out Bridges in Tron.
Peter 179cm said on 9/Jul/16
6'1.5-6'1.75 range,187cm.
Alex said on 27/Jun/16
His eye level is around 175 cm, so he should be more 186-187 cm.
Eric said on 6/May/16
he looks 0.25-0.5 inch shorter than me..he is.a weak 6'2(1.87) for sure
Randy said on 5/May/16
He seemed shorter than James arness on red river that I saw last night
That guy said on 23/Mar/16
"This guy is barely 6'1" said typical commenters on a legit 6'2 guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/16
"Bruce Boxleitner's height is 6ft 1¾in (187.3cm)
"Peak height was 6ft 2¼in (188.6cm)"
Aza said on 26/Jan/16
Based on both of the pics above even accounting for footwear advantage in 2009 do you think he has lost height from 2009-2013? It kinda looks it to me.
Editor Rob
a fraction through into early 60's yes. That near 60 and over 60 is where a good chunk will lose a fraction.
Just said on 14/Jul/15
He also starred in the tv series "How the west was won".
Enderofdebates said on 13/Jun/15
Funny because I'm taller than 6'2" and most people who are 5'8" only reach up to under my bottom lip.
berta said on 6/May/15
6 foot 2 0,25 inches peak. 6 foot 2 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/14
Rob, you could add Tron to the list
Editor Rob
it's been in there for a long while already.
Jovach said on 10/Nov/14
He looks like Bill Clinton
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/14
He looked 189-190cm with Bridges.
184.3cm said on 30/Oct/14
Love that in both photos he has Tron related t-shirts on :) Maybe he lost a cm 189cm peak? if Bridges was really 187 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/14
189cm peak is a strong possibility. He was taller than Jeff Bridges in Tron
mike said on 9/Oct/14
Since he claimed both 6ft 2 and 3...

Peak: 6ft 2.5in 189 cm
Today: 6ft 1.5in 187 cm
heightman said on 27/Aug/14
How tall is Jerry Doyle? The internet says 1.91 but that cannot be right.
Editor Rob
he does claim to be 6ft 3, he didn't really look that much different from bruce though.

He should play Bill Clinton in a movie.


Yeah he's got the right look (and height too).

6'2 at peak,now rather a strong 6'1.25-1.5"

sigge said on 10/Jan/14
weak 6'2, i wouldn't be surprised if he is just 187 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/13
Strangely he looked 6ft3 in a recent convention pic with Jeff Bridges
richkid123 said on 12/Oct/13
this guy could be Bill Clinton's twin 6'2"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2.25in (189cm)"
"Bruce Boxleitner's height is 6ft 1.5in (187cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/13
Could he have been 189cm in his youth, Rob?
Editor Rob
today I think he is under 6ft 2, in 20's he could have been a little over it, not impossible.
avi said on 8/Sep/13

Strangely I look a bit taller than this next to my legit 5'8 cousin, she doesn't even reach my eyelevel, and I'm also 6'2.

Are you sure about the full 6'2 Rob? I see more 6'1.25-6'1.5.
Editor Rob
187 isn't impossible, but he was a solid 6ft 2 guy I think, from 80's to 90's
Lo sgozzatore said on 19/Aug/13
Did he really look taller than the plumber? Dont think so
Editor Rob
similar range
Mike T said on 24/Jul/13
Weak 6'2"
wartank said on 14/Jul/13
He was close to 6ft 3in in his younger days in 'How the west was won'(The McCahanns)opposite James Arness. Well, nobody ever measured up to Mr.Gunsmoke anyway, and we can only estimate based on distant shots.. haha
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/13
189cm in the 80s. Was clearly taller than Jeff Bridges in Tron.
In the 2010 remake he was slightly taller than 186-187cm Garrett Hedlund
cole said on 18/Jun/13
Looks more 187 with Rob.
Emil said on 17/May/13
Looks 186-187
TNTinFL said on 25/Mar/13
Easily 6'2". Doesn't appear to have lost any height as he aged. Although he may have been closer to 6'3" in his prime.
jimmy said on 18/Mar/13
The top of Rob's head goes to the middle of this guy's ears.That makes us a good 5 and a half inch difference.Rob is a bit more than a flat 5 ft 8.Combine all these facts with his relaxed posture in the pic and you have a legit 6 ft 2 guy .
Trent said on 21/Dec/12
This guy looks about 6'2, so I think he could have been 6'2.5 at peak since he claimed 6'3 as well.
Lo sgozzatore said on 19/Oct/12
Rob, did he look taller than a Chaske Spencer?
Editor Rob
pretty close
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/12
Today is 6"1.75/187cm max. Had 1in on Jeff Bridges in Tron (1982)
ray 6' 158 lbs said on 14/Aug/12
he seems like 6'2" inch tall and 200 lbs and around 56 years old nice guy and great actor.
somedude said on 9/Aug/12
I'm 5'10 and one of my best friends is 6'2. I look bigger next to him in pics usually than this. so 5'8 rob and 6'2 bruce look about right. Id say celeb heights nailed it @ 6'2"
Fakhrul Islam said on 3/Aug/12
Bruce is 6 ft 1/2
Hob said on 27/Jul/12
he can't be anything over 186cm.
Josh B said on 7/Feb/12
I counter that with look at the plumber in the height challenge 8, Bruce looks the same as him. I think his drop in posture, if there was any, is compensated by his footwear advantage.
ChiasmataX said on 6/Feb/12
@steven, this guy is clearly 6'2. You want 6'1 range guy? Just look at #10 guy who measured 184cm (height challenge).
steven said on 18/Jan/12
if he is 6'2 or more then the #5 guy measure 189cm can step on **** everyday. 6'1 max picture prove here and don forget he had 1/4" more shoe than rob. people have no idea a real 6'2 guy is huge standing next to any 5'8 person. my brother is 6'2 and easily had a mid nose level on my 5'8 sister.
Editor Rob
the 6ft 2 1/3rd man is taller in person than Bruce is, although we took the photo with the 6ft 2 1/3rd man higher up, so the camera was in the 5ft 8 range and very fair.

as soon as you start lowering the camera below 5ft 9, taller men can potentially get an advantage.
USYD said on 15/Jan/12
Nothing less than 6'2". I would even go to say that he's 189cm judging him by that pic.
Steven said on 5/Jan/12
he could have drop height now. look 6'0.75 and peak 6'2
Robby D. said on 13/Dec/11
I am amazed he is so much taller than Rob. I never thought of him as 6'2" when I saw him in "Bring Em Back Alive."
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/11
Was 188cm-189cm in his prime, which is 6ft2.25.
Today he's between 6ft1.5-6ft2.
LAN said on 14/Nov/11
in picture here he is 6'1
george555 said on 12/Nov/11
Bruce is a strong 6'2
Mathew said on 11/Nov/11
6'2" seems okay.
LAN Jiao said on 8/Nov/11
i let alone 6'1-6'1.25 , i think boxleitner is closer to 6'1.5 , waiting for rob to put down a tad bit for him.
LAN Jiao said on 3/Nov/11
i will fight down boxleitner 6'1.5 , he really not 6'2 anymore.
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
i believe boxleitner is at least 6'1 in real possible 6'1.25 but 6'2 is no way. now he does't look over 6'1.25(186) compare to shorter actors. 186cm is rested him well. watch CHUCK he was at least 8cm shorter than mr.awesome listed 6'4.5 here. 186cm is dead on today. athough he claim 6'3 that was obviously hollywood inflated height claim(without it at peak his around 6'2) now he is 6'1.25 is a fact.
i don think he lost alot or a full 2cm. at peak he is solid 6'1.75 which is easily look 6'2 over on screen. see 6'1.75 young and 60years old lost the 0.5in at 6'1.25 is totally fair just like david hasselhoff his 6'4 min peak and now dip down 6'3.5 which is a fact we cant denied. although hoff with small head long limbs proportion easily look taller 6'4 alone in picture fooled people sight and boxleitner had tendency wear 1.2-1.4" shoe not flats which can keeps him look 6'2 in pictures alone but put a comparison to young stud realistic 6'2 actors like matthew fox,gabriel aubry and ryan reynolds which easily figure out his under 6'2 nowadays. Garrett Hedlund is listed 6'1,25 but does't look any shorter than boxleitner in tron2.0 premiere and in tron2.0 movie itself he wore boots and look a bit taller than bruce. but to me Garrett Hedlund looks physically 6'1 like eric dane and josh holloway. boxleitner is 6'1.25 and i think jeff bridge is no higher than 6'0.25 nowadays.
Reality said on 1/Nov/11
He looks closer to 6'1 at this pic but since he doesn't have as good posture 6'2 seems right.He also has longer forehead which puts his eye level lower.
LAN Jiao said on 25/Oct/11
If he is 6'2 , well mcpartlin is no lower 6'5.25 which is impossible. 6'1 came a fact.. accept it folks!
goal height 183cm 6'0 said on 23/Oct/11
187.5 before bed 190cm out of bed

188 spot on the rest of the day
LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
In picture he came 6'1.1 . Beside he had advantage footwear. I will argue down 6'0.9 for bruce. Weakest 6'2 . Challenge2 guy is barefoot with rob and few mm taller bruce here. He can't be 6'1.5 as well, he look a full 8cm shorter than ryan mcpartlin close up in Chuck. 6'1.25max
xyz.reg(6 ft 1.5 in) said on 18/Oct/11
Hi rob..don't u think the height difference between him and u is the same as volunteer he should be listed as 6ft 1-1.5in.
Editor Rob
well bruce isn't as tall in person as volunteer 5 who is basically a 6ft 2.3 guy. I think he could be a fraction taller than no' 2, it's tough.
Eli said on 13/Oct/11
take a look at height challenge number 2.Boxleitner is under the 6ft1 mark.That puts Hedlund at 6ft flat
LAN Jiao said on 5/Oct/11
Routh 6'2.25 don keep pushing it. Boxleitner 6 '1 flat barely.
James said on 3/Oct/11
Brandon Routh 6'2.75 (190cm)
Bruce Boxleitner 6'1.75 (187cm)
george555 said on 3/Oct/11
he doesn't look 6'2, i'd give him 6'1 or 6'1.7 at his peak. maybe 6'2-6'3 with shoes in his prime

he looks about 6'2, more like 6'1.5 for me
LAN Jiao said on 28/Sep/11
time for downgrade boxleitner. the 2nd height challenger guy measure 186.3cm is clear taller than boxleitner next to rob. also in CHUCK 194cm mr.awesome was biggish 3inch top over boxleitner. if he stays 6ft2 never change then mr.awesome should go up 6ft5.5
Triplescrew said on 27/Sep/11
I think the barely 6'2" claims are accurate.

Check out him vs Brandon Routh:

They are actually much closer than I thought.
LAN Jiao said on 16/Sep/11
sorry for previous comment my sentence correction below which i mean:
"people keep saying bruce boxleitner 6ft2." thanks. he really not a 6ft2er..
LAN Jiao said on 15/Sep/11
6ft2 boxleitner? lol. saw few picture of my aunt 5ft7.75(172) and my uncle 6ft2.25(188) vintage married photo while both was barefoot in a garden , my aunt almost reach below my uncle nose, my uncle was then a legit 6ft2 guy compare about 5ft8 person.. up here even shoe advantage 5ft8 rob only under boxleitner eye level yet people keep saying bruce boxleitner 6ft. really lol.. 6ft1 with good posture here is reality.

yeah 6'1.75-6'2 looks ok.
Hansen said on 24/Aug/11
rampage, look closer rob does't had much hair advantage here. just put a zoom boxleitner looks a legitmate 6ft1.25 , by taking away 1/4in shoe advantage he could be just a tip 6ft1 but a stretch still 6ft1.25

maybe at peak he was 6ft1.75 rounded up 6ft2 , he could possible lost abit height at age60s now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/11
187.3cm or 6ft1.5/6ft1.75 next to Rob.
Take away the shoe advantage and he's 186cm.

Looks slightly more than 6'2" because of shoe advantage so he is definately a rock solid 6'2" no shorter than that"

J.J you are joking. above next to solid 173cm person if Boxleitner was 6ft2 then you may have a big problem judging height. in person im not sure he is 6ft1 or 2. but in photo next to rob here we can tell how a legit 6ft1.25 looks then if boxleitner had advantage shoe he did be under 186ish. probably also not 6ft2 in real.

Legit 6ft2 guy at peak
James said on 8/Jun/11
he's still tall and lanky thats for sure
Lenad said on 5/Jun/11
Looks 6'1 range. Nothing under 6'1 though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jun/11
I think he's shrunk 0.5in. 6ft2.25 peak, 6ft1.75 today
James said on 1/Jun/11
Actuall yeah i guess his eye level is over the top of robs after looking more closely at the pic.

remember though he did have slight footware advantage so might be 6'1.5 today
Evon said on 30/May/11
I just had my picture taken with him on Saturday. I'm 5'9" and the top of my head is about even with his eyes. So I'd say about 6'2". I don't believe he was slouching in my picture.
Mohammed said on 26/May/11
Probably peaked at 6'2, does look 6'1.25 in that pic
Chuck said on 26/May/11
Bruce's eyes are above The top of Rob's head. I agree with Rob's listing, I say he is 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/11
6ft2.25(189cm) peak
6ft1.5(187cm) today

Don't think he's as low as 185cm
avi said on 19/May/11
over 6'1. maybe 6'1 3/4. looks a good 5 1/2 inches taller.
Thor Knapp said on 11/May/11
Bruce is a sportsman in a great shape for a sixty.
In Tron he looks about 190 cm, 3 or 4 cm about more than Jeff Bridges, that's a tall man too. If he says he's 188 cm, surely he didn't exagerate his height.
James said on 8/May/11
Seems healthy and in good shape so doubt he has lost much height from his peak

6'1.25 (186cm) peak
6'1 (185cm) today

I don't think he was ever the full 6'2 maybe 188cm out of bed and 187cm in the morning in his 20's but these days he does not look much over 6ft so defenintly more a 6'1 guy than a 6'2 guy.
Chameleon said on 4/May/11
Agree'd with JameZZZZZZZ
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/May/11
189cm(6"2.25) peak
187cm(6"1.5) now or perhaps 6"1.75 tops
James said on 2/May/11
Maybe just a shade more than 5 inches in the pic with footware advantage since he looks 186cm with rob.
Lenad said on 2/May/11
Up straight looks as though he'd be a solid 5 inches taller than Rob. I reckon hes a good 6ft1 like 185-186cm today. 6'2 prime I can buy
Lenad said on 1/May/11
Should be given 186cm nowadays. 188cm peak
James said on 30/Apr/11
overall he does look 6'1 with rob
Lenad said on 28/Apr/11
Looks a solid 5 inches taller than Rob. I could buy 186cm today and maybe 188cm in his younger days.
Lenad said on 28/Apr/11
Looks 5-5.5 inches taller than Rob. I'd give him 186cm today. Mightve been a weak 6'2 in 1984
James said on 24/Apr/11
185-186cm in the photo with rob
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/11

James says on 26/Feb/11
looking closer at the pic he really does NOT look 6 inches taller than rob. thats exactley 5 inches in the photo.

are you serious dude? when i just saw the thumbnail pic before i clicked on it, i guessed he was 6'3-6'4 next to rob and you can tell his leaned in forward a bit too and not fully standing straight up, he easily looks 6'2

Yeah but if he was easily 6'2 his eyes would be minimum 1 inch over the top of robs head.
Chameleon said on 23/Mar/11
@jrock if u scroll down just a lil bit u can see Rob explained his posture, in other words this guy is not slouching and he does not look 'easily 6'2' the highest im giving him here is 187cm max.

Larc 6 ft 1.5 in said on 24/Feb/11
Looks more than 185 but not quite 188, 186-187 is closer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Feb/11
188-189cm peak
James said on 22/Feb/11
Actually given he has more seaker he looks 185cm compared to rob and 186cm with footware advantage.

6ft1 (185cm) today and 6'1.5 (187cm) peak????
James said on 14/Feb/11
Looks no more than 187cm with rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/11
6"1.5 or 6"1.75 today might be closer...looks around 187cm

At peak 6"2.25(189cm)
Dutchtower 6'8 said on 19/Jan/11
Good estimation he has 6 inches on you. He looks dutch btw.
jake said on 1/Jan/11
certainly looks a legitimate 6' 2" here.
Observant said on 16/Dec/10
186 cm max next to rob
rob89 said on 10/Dec/10
In Mikey's pic he looks around 1.5 - 2 inches taller than Bridges, so if Bridges is really 6'1 then Bruce is more like 6'2.5 - 6'3. But of course we can't see the ground or what kind of shoes they're wearing, not to mention their postures aren't perfectly straight.

Assuming Bruce really is 1.5 - 2' taller though, then either he's really closing in on 6'3 or Bridges is under 6'1. Personally i suspect Bridges has shrunk a bit and is now about 6' flat in reality, so that would result in basically a weak 6'2 (187 cm) Bruce, which is exactly what is think he is today. Possibly a legit 6'2 - 6'2.5 in his prime, he's 60 after all.
gfg said on 2/Dec/10
you know what when hes standing next to jeff bridges in tron he looks about 2 inches taller in every scene which makes me think jeff was only 5'11-6'0
Anonymous said on 11/Nov/10
when i compared this photo with rob standing next to the measuring stand, made heads same size etc, he game up to 187cm. weak 6ft 2 in this photo
James said on 11/Nov/10
no way in hell 189cm next to rob.
Larc186-188cm said on 5/Nov/10
Looks tall, around 188-189 for sure.
sam 2 said on 30/Dec/08
I met Bruce in the late 70's. I am 6' 2 1/2". There is no doubt in my mind that he is no more than 6'1" tops. Most likely a little shorter.
Akmed said on 25/Jun/08
he's definitely 6'2.25 / 189cm

he might even be 190cm

Editor Rob
he's still big guy he looked quite near 6ft 3 last time I saw him, although he had a 1.5 inch cowboy heel.

i was just browsing around the net for babylon 5 stuff when i came across this site all about celeb heights, i met bruce at a book signing, and while i'm no giant he had at least an inch possibly 2 on me, and i'd say i'm aprox 5-11, at my peak i was roughly 6ft so i'd say he was around 6-2. sorry i dont have a pic to prove it i didnt have my camara at the time.

Editor Rob
wish I could have met him, missed the last time he was doing a con here in uk...shame lost tales wasn't that great.
talker said on 2/Dec/06
Boxleitner was 6'3",at least at the time of "Baltimore bullet",looks an inch taller than 6'2" Coburn there,and Coburn really looks tall in this movie,definitely 6'2",i wont buy any shrinking stuff.
kobby said on 19/Sep/06
6"2 no way.. his just a mark185cm(6ft1)tall!

Editor Rob
actually, come to think, I watched an episode of b5 recently and he was squaring up to jerry doyle (garibaldi) and did look to have slight edge...hmm
Editor Rob said on 25/May/06
In book 'Coming of the Shadows 1998' he is quoted as saying: "I'm 6ft 3"...
sam said on 9/May/06
He's lucky to hit 6'+. Never 6'2".
