I guess I'm not the only height aware guy that's 5'9" I've been height aware since I was high school.

Lol Rob you have the greatness respect to him, such a generous person you are.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Apr/19
Rob, since Gorman was tiny bit shorter than your dad (5'8.8) in person comparison with you so why didn't you downgrade him to 5'8.75"? I'm just curious.
Editor Rob
Gorman is a very height-aware actor, one of the few I ever seen doing bust a gut for photos, so he might measure 5ft 9 in fact doing that!

Rob, feel free to disagree with me, but I may likely edge out this guy.
Editor Rob
Well, if you are 5ft 9.5 you would look taller if you stood the same. If you stood normally without forced posture and he stood at measured height you might not look much different.

5'8 7/8 (175) at best.
Nik said on 26/Jun/18
5'8.75" - 5'9"

A good actor and an honest 5'9" I'd say, he looks several inches over Charlie Day.
Tunman said on 12/May/18
On the left pic he could look a strong 176 but he's slightly raising his head so more like a good 5'9 maybe no more than a flat 5'9 if not busting a gut.

I don't know why that Woman comment made Me laugh. I have been called all kinds of names , I was told recently that I look like a 15 yr old girl.
Redwing said on 12/Nov/17
Hey rob, ain't disrespecting the man but don't you think he looks like a woman?
Editor Rob: I never thought about that, so I don't think I got such an impression!
Kourosh said on 16/Oct/17
i dont know but he looks 176cm in newer pic.
Ben said on 30/Aug/17
Strong 5'9" guy.
Junior said on 14/Aug/17
Legit 5'8.75" not a full 5'9, mr rob head was little behind him. Can't see his footwear so picture just tell that he look little weak 5'9
Slim 182 cm said on 30/Jul/17
5'9 max.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 26/Jul/17
Not under 5'9". I'm still damned about the average guess.
Bobby said on 24/May/17
I would say 5'9.5 for this guy, doesn't strike me as a flat 5'9 guy.
176cm guy said on 27/Apr/17
He looks a little under 5'9"
Arthur said on 24/Apr/17
Editor Rob is the smaller heightwise, but Gorman is the smaller man 😉
DINO said on 22/Nov/16
5'8.5
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
More heel was the tricks as well as a shorter head than rob makes him look 5'9
Bobby said on 1/Nov/16
You guys must be height blind, if he were truly 5'9, you'd see no difference height wise, he's 5'10 at least.
Editor Rob:

Burn has a thicker hairstyle, as shown in a previous comparison. Compared to my Dad who was a proven 5ft 8.8 here: Click Here, would anybody say he was actually taller, let alone 1.2 inches taller.

Even a 1 and 3/8th inch difference can look more, like With Sister, who is 5ft 9 5/8th in heels there.
S.J.H said on 31/Oct/16
Some tricks with the left picture. He look 5'8 out of here
AJ said on 29/Sep/16
5'9"
Andrea said on 26/Sep/16
He looks nowhere near 5'10, even in the new photo... He really doesn't look much different than how Rob looks with his dad (in the HC)... Plus, as Rob says, this guys is standing as tall as possible! He might be the 5'9 version of Stephen Amell, 5'8.5-5'8.75 barefoot and can pull off a decent 5'9 with perfect posture?
I do remember this guy from GOT but i never really paid attention to his height, he probably looked quite average in the show...
I think he was listed at 5'8.75 at some point on here but for some reason he got the full 5'9...
Editor Rob: he perfected a 'breathe in' pose, it is a good way to maximise your stance, what Sly and Vin Diesel might do at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
Looks near 5ft10 in the newer photo...
Mat said on 18/Jul/16
He looks 5'10 in the new photo!!!??? wow. I really can't see him under 5'9 Rob. Unless you are losing 1 inch in posture, he is over 5'9.
Editor Rob: well he's standing military (having breathed in before every photo), plus his hairstyle is nearly a cm thicker than a normal flatter style he sometimes wears, like mine.

In fact his thicker hair looks in line with my Dad's thinner hairstyle (and he's under 5ft 9 here having just been measured before the photo so his hair isn't anywhere near as thick as Burn's): Click here.

@ Kourosh
Plus you can tell by their heads in front of the mirrior I raised the measuring tape to where 5'8 1/8ths out of curiousity and burn Gorman appears to be what my possible abosulute low height would be which is 5'8 3/4 or 5'8 7/8ths I might of slouched in the measurement like I'm basically doing it myself so I might lose an little. If he was 5'9 3/4 there would be an bigger difference, even with the eyes though they look basically about an inch maybe less, and there postures are not entirely even like he is trying to get too his tallest height and Rob is lowering his head an little and is more laid back.
Kourosh said on 10/Jul/15
Rob he is pushing to 5'9.75 in newer photo why is that? shoe heel?
[Editor Rob: low sneaker like me, he had converse that day, an extra fraction posture before each photo, still I'd say he measures 5ft 8.75-9 range, he looks smaller than jenny's 5ft 9 and a little sister in person.]
Bakara said on 30/Jun/15
so you're saying he has a louzy posture and stretches to 'real hight' or that he stretches beyond his height, like a high heel?
[Editor Rob: imagine you are getting measured and almost raising forward onto your front toes, but not actually going up on them.]
TJE said on 8/Apr/15
Rob, you should probably add Game of Thrones to the description.
theroux said on 11/Feb/15
Rob, why does he look taller than you? His eyes are slightly above your eyes. Is it his head size, own eyelevel, smaller than yours? Otherwise he is the same height as you?
[Editor Rob: Burn has a technique in photos. He stands normally and just before the photographer snaps he stretches to what would be his measured height.]
linke said on 24/Jan/15
I was just watching the alexander terrible movie and this guy edged out Steve Carell
Judd said on 24/Jan/15
He has 0,75" on rob. 5'8.75-9 is fair!
Mike said on 4/Dec/14
The 5ft 8.75 listing was better. Doesn't look a full inch taller than you Rob.
