Rob, I'd personally give him 6ft1 peak and 6ft today (struggling with that at times)

Rob, maybe 6ft1 peak and 6ft today?


An inch lost by 70 is believable. I think he did look that tall in F/X and Gorillas In The Mist. Also a good inch taller than Sam Neill in Dirty Deeds
Editor Rob: today I feel he is looking a bit shy of 6ft
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/17
Really that low now?


Haven't seen him in anything for years though
Editor Rob: in Gods of Egypt, with someone like Nikolaj I thought he did look under 6ft nowadays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/17
Could be another more general statement, Rob.

I thought 6ft1 was fair
Editor Rob: today he can look 5ft 11.5 range at most, I'm not sure he really lost 1.5 inches though by now...

In one of my Favourite movies F/X Bryan appears to be 5' 8" when standing by a 6'6| bedroom door. The end of the movie where his Character sneaks into the Mobs home He is shown going into numerous doors. He didn't appear 5 inches shorter than a bedroom door. I am going to say he may of been 5' 8".

185/186cm when he made Cocktail. Might be more 184/185cm now though at near 70.

Edward Woodward is listed as being 6'0". Brown was taller in "Breaker Morant" by about 2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/14
I think around 185-186cm is fair. He does look near 6ft2 in some of his earlier movies though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/13
Looked about 6ft2 in Cocktail next to Tom Cruise (about 6in taller).
Gave a unforgettable and underrated performance in that aswell.

He looks 6ft1.5/187cm next to Baldwin.

I love the original 'F/X: Murder By Illusion' film.

I notice in the fight scene with stuntman Tim Gallin (also listed at 6'1") Bryan is shorter.

Personally I think he is 5'11" or 6' MAXIMUM.
jasperwazap said on 18/Jan/13
never realized he was this tall. cruise had to be in lifts in cocktail and generous camera angles.
greg said on 15/Jan/13
Yep, clearly about 6'1" in this photo with Alec Baldwin who I think is still about 5'11"

Didn't think he was that tall watching his movies like SFX, etc.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Mar/11
Rob, since the guy is now in his 60s, would there be a chance he was over 6"1 in his youth?
talker said on 5/Mar/11
here's Brown with Neill.There's at least 2" diffrence between them,more like 3".And yet they are listed here 1.82m and 1.84m,2 cm difference not even an inch.

[Editor Rob: there seems more case for bryan to be listed taller]
Anonymous said on 24/Jan/11
ok.the aussie dudes have to be changed.Sam Neill is listed 5'11.75",almost 6',and Brown is listed 0.5" taller.There are about 3" between these guys.You can check this easily there are several photos of them together.Since Brown cannot be over strong 6'1",i believe he is 1.86m and Neill is 1.79m.

Yes, Hugh that`s right. Look very tall in this film beside Ben Stiller. 6ft2inch could be.
Hugh said on 26/Sep/08
Bryan looked like a 6ft2 guy next to Ben Stiller in Along Came Polly. There was about 7-8 inches there. I swear.
nicole said on 9/Sep/08
Yes, could be right this height for him.Was smaller then Brian Dennehy by 1.5inches in both fx films.

No way. He and his partner in Mobb Deep, Havoc, are notoriously short (Havoc's around 5'3"). In a 2003 interview with XXL, he even referred to himself as 5'6", so there's no way in hell, he's any taller than that.
jake said on 11/Oct/06
why are his shoulders so high? This pic looks kinda odd especially with the hat.

On the cover of Amerika's Nightmare he's against a height chart and comes up to 69 1/2 inches, that's in shoes, so I'd say he's around 5'8 1/2. His partner in Mobb Deep, Havoc, however, is 5'6" based upon the cover of the before said album.

Dont remember for the life of me.some reason 5-8,5-9 seems right.unless Rob found out 5-6 is his official height.
leonari said on 10/Oct/06
Glenn:how tall is he? 5'6"??
Matt said on 10/Oct/06
It looks to me that if he was standing straight up he'd be at least 5'7'', if not 5'8''.
stan said on 9/Oct/06
I thought he was about this height, sometimes can look even smaller because he has sickel cell anemia
