How tall is Casper Van Dien

Casper Van Dien's Height

5ft 9.25in (175.9 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films Starship Troopers and Sleepy Hollow. I met him at LFCC 2014, he had a cowboy boot which was an inch more thicker than my sneaker.

I grew an inch when I was 20 and an inch when I was 21. It was a late spurt.

Rob, how much did his cowboy boots give, and how thick were they?
Editor Rob: This heel, it's not side on, but it was no less than 1.8ish inch, a good inch more footwear than me.

Even at a legitimate 5'9", he's fairly short for his ancestry (Van Dien is a Dutch surname, who are as a whole, the tallest people in the world).

That's silly. Just because he has a dutch surname doesn't mean he is mostly Dutch. He is a mixture of many ethnicities (English, Irish, etc.) where 5'9 is average.

Shot a movie with him several years ago and was right next to him in several scenes. Class act and easy going to everyone on the set, even extra's. Height is right on.

Most honest guy on the planet
randomuser said on 21/Aug/17
He looks like his name could be Chad
World Citizen said on 20/Jun/17
I think he is 175 176 cm
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Apr/17
He looks nearly 5'11" here. Take that away, and you got an honest 176 cm person.

I've wore boots before. the top of my head literally went over the eye level of a person. That same person also edged out Barack Obama in several pictures.
Delvin chung said on 16/Mar/17
Could he be around 5'10 ( 177.5 to 178 cm range ) in the morning
Delvin chung said on 16/Mar/17
Is 175.5 cm a possibility
Editor Rob: I think the man did measure himself a fraction over 5ft 9 and has been honest, but after a hard day's shooting...could he go towards 175-175.5? Don't rule it out.
josh jeffords said on 12/Mar/17
Seems right to me never looked tall or too small he was obviously bigger than depp who i think also claims this height..
He is a rather weak actor but played a decent hero or cool guy and even d bag villain henchman.
Shredder said on 15/Feb/17
He looked under 5'10 to me , but not under 5'9
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 30/Oct/16
Congrats to Casper. Vast majority of 5ft9.25 guys would claim 5ft10 or 5ft11. Plus, he went as far as claiming a quarter of an inch.
S.J.H said on 18/Oct/16
He could even be lower than 5'9 barefoot
Patrick 5foot9 said on 7/Oct/16
I´m pretty sure he holds 1.77m for the most time of the day.
bOb said on 2/Apr/16
I think 5' - 9" is an exaggeration. But whatever, he was way too short and badly miscast as Tarzan in 1998.
Johno said on 14/Feb/16
Ummmmm, 5'8.5
Patrick 5foot9 said on 26/Jan/16
I´m going to sleep now. I was 1.75.6m relxaed, 1.76.2m standing straight befour 5 minutes. And i appreciate being as tall as Casper. Thank you rob, for your site
Chase Witherspoon said on 17/Oct/15
My est prior to seeing this was going to be 174, I thought he tends to look a bit shorter than ave, perhaps it's the long neck
SJH said on 26/Sep/15
Rob say about an inch more footwear which mean 2 cm. Here he look 4 cm taller with this struggling straight posture. He can't be over a flat 175cm barefoot. He maybe 176 cm in morning
Mat 5'10 said on 26/Sep/15
So Rob, if you hadn't pay attention to his shoes, would you think he was 5'10.25?
[Editor Rob: without looking at shoes I'd have guessed a decen 5ft 10er yes.]
Patrick 1.78m (out of bed) :D said on 22/Sep/15
Afternoon, okay. Sorry for the couple of questions i have. But i´m verry curious. What is his "close to bed"-height for you, rob? Is 1.76m realle the lowest for him?
[Editor Rob: an absolute low could be a little more for him, 175.5-6 range.

My usual lowest is 173cm on the nose for the last couple of years.]
Patrick 1.78m (out of bed) :D said on 21/Sep/15
Rob, if he honest, does he mean evening height? Is 5foot9 and 1/4 exactly 1.76m?
[Editor Rob: I think he probably measured in the afternoon range, a quarter over 5ft's believable.]
Sammy Derrick said on 9/Aug/15
He's a pretty handsome man...I would have guessed 6'0...5'9.25 it is...
174cm said on 3/Apr/15
Shoe size is variable, think I read that Arnold wears a size 10
CD said on 24/Mar/15
Rob is it possible his cowboy boots gave a little more than an inch? He looks a tad more than 2 inches taller to be honest, I have a feeling if he didn't claim a height or claimed say 5ft 10 you might have given him a full 5ft 9.5.
[Editor Rob: in the description...'an inch more footwear than me'. In other words, I have 0.7in sneaker, his cowboy's are around 1.7in]
Crypto139 said on 3/Jan/15
9 1/2 shoe size. If that is US sizes that seems kind of small considering an my foot size at 5 feet 7. I wear between 11 to 11.5. Foot size is strange :/
[Editor Rob: for your height, that is a big size. 9.5-10US is within the average range.]
Judd said on 24/Dec/14
Gx79 says on 23/Dec/14
Rob can he look 5 foot10
[Editor Rob: his claim is consistant with how he looked to me, I mean he had an inch more footwear and looked a bit more than 5ft 10 flat (for instance he looked taller than c thomas howell who is near 5ft 10).

An honest 176cm man...]

yeah, if rob and casper had similar shoes then casper couldn't be under 5'10" for sure (if not 5'10.5"). i think he has always an excellent posture which make him appear taller, also next to rob: while van dien is perfectly straight rob is not with his head and neck...5'9.25" is a perfect listing for van dien!

[Editor Rob: not in Starship Troopers, I think he basically did look a decent 5ft 9er in that movie...wearing cowboy boots will boost you a good bit, I doubt he's got any lifts in them, I can believe that he got measured a little over 5ft 9 and is one of the few who came out with the 1/4 inch!]

yeah, i have just watched it and in a couple of scenes he does look close to Patrick Muldoon, who looks tall for all the movie and i think is an honest 6'2", but maybe the camera angle make Van Dien taller than what he really is...
Judd said on 2/Dec/14
Yeah i think 5'9.25-5" sounds good to me...
Rob you think he could be one more actor who wears lifts, like arnie and stallion?

I ask it because i remember that in a couple of his movies he looks taller than a 5'9 range guy!
For example in starship troopers he looks quite tall...I thought before he was in the 6' range!
[Editor Rob: not in Starship Troopers, I think he basically did look a decent 5ft 9er in that movie...wearing cowboy boots will boost you a good bit, I doubt he's got any lifts in them, I can believe that he got measured a little over 5ft 9 and is one of the few who came out with the 1/4 inch!]
Clay said on 27/Nov/14
Rob this would be me and you with me in my Nike's + insol inside. :D
[Editor Rob: if I switched to the Timberland boots in the 'Sly Photo tips' I would appear almost an inch taller myself in this photo!]
Bruce said on 26/Nov/14
Casper is 176.5 aprox Average height
Josh1 said on 24/Nov/14
5'9 1/4 spot on very accurate.
Chris said on 24/Nov/14
Shawn, I'm mostly Dutch. 5'10.5" in the morning. :/

My dad and brothers are all lanky six-footers. I'm the stocky one.
Shawn said on 15/Nov/14
Even at a legitimate 5'9", he's fairly short for his ancestry (Van Dien is a Dutch surname, who are as a whole, the tallest people in the world).
Yitzhak 179 cm said on 8/Oct/14
Nice to see a celeb so honest about their height. 176 cm is probably his low evening height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
He looks about 5ft10.5 with the shoe advantage.
Josh said on 27/Aug/14
looks 2 strong inches taller than rob, but with his shoes advantage 5 9.25 is fair for him
dadang said on 25/Aug/14
He looks like 5'9.5" to 5'10"
179cm Leonard said on 22/Aug/14
5'10 in the photo
1.75m Patrick said on 20/Aug/14
But "5ft 9 and 1/4" are not exactly 1.76m, are it? You round it up, right?
If he knows his height, what height did he chose? Morning heigh?
I´m sure, that he is taller then me. And out of bad i´m about 1.77m.
But i always tell people my lowest. Feels better.
[Editor Rob: 175.9cm to the 5ft 9.25 mark. For this guy to be under 5ft 9 he'd have to have thicker cowboy boots than I thought.]
1.75m Patrick said on 19/Aug/14
Rob, i think we see 2-3 cm difference on the photo.
The difference we should see, if he is 1.76m and you 1.73m.
But with Cowboyboots on, i can´t see him taller then you.
Maybe 1.74m without the boots. BUT i always thought he is taller then 5foot9. He never looked small to me.
[Editor Rob: he was looking to me in the strong 5ft 10 range, so minus his inch of extra footwear I can firmly believe his 5ft 9 and 1/4.

I mean, here he is with a 5ft 10 guy, about 0.7ish more footwear than that guy...]
tradewinds said on 18/Aug/14
He looked 5'8 in 90210, and they made everyone look taller.
Lonestar said on 16/Aug/14
The cowboy boots could still input soles 1/4-7/8inch, Casper is 5"8 tall as rob. He had claim 5"10 from the past
lelman said on 15/Aug/14
176cm, 165lbs, size 9 shoe. He is literally the prototypical "average built man". I've never seen someone report their height to such pinpoint accuracy.
Brad said on 11/Aug/14
As listed. Boots do wonders, ask Vin and Marky.
Dmeyer said on 9/Aug/14
Strong 5'10.25 minus 1in 5'9.25
Anon said on 9/Aug/14
Rob, could 5'8.75" be closer?
[Editor Rob: only if I underestimated his footwear...or he was sleeping all afternoon - this photo was like 7pm and the show opened 6pm.]
truth said on 9/Aug/14
definately a strong 5ft9, he even looks a good 2 inches taller than you in boots.
jtm said on 9/Aug/14
this looks accurate
Jack said on 9/Aug/14
@His heels are in the 1.7 inch range at least, some of them get called 2-inch cowboy boots, but they give like 1.7-1.8 inch of actual height.
If so, then he is nothing more than 5'8'5"(174 cm) barefoot. 5'9 max.
Jack said on 8/Aug/14
Rob do cowboy heels add only 1 inch to your height?
[Editor Rob: no, a 1-inch heel is much smaller than the kind he is wearing. His heels are in the 1.7 inch range at least, some of them get called 2-inch cowboy boots, but they give like 1.7-1.8 inch of actual height.]
Guss said on 8/Aug/14
After Starship Troopers, Casper should have been cast in Wild Wild West with 5'8 Gary Sinise with Robert Rodriguez directing.
Pavilion said on 7/Aug/14
Wow, he looks shorter than 5'9 on screen. Even 90210, which made everyone look taller made him still look shorter than 5'9.
Alex 6'0 said on 7/Aug/14
Looks a good 2 inches taller in cowboy boots. Take away inch advantage 5'9.25 looks right.
max said on 7/Aug/14
Wow Rob were you surprised by the guys claim of 5'9 1/4 very accurate, could be close to it, He Looks bit taller but the shoe advantage so he could actually be a 5'9 but he claimed to a 1/4 inch mark so it could be right Who knows.
Andrea said on 7/Aug/14
How can people say he looks 180 in this pic? I struggle to see him even at 178 to be fair... Then if you also consider he has about an inch more footwear, i don't think he's much more than 5'9 flat! I mean, just basing on this picture, i wouldn't be surprised if he measured a fraction shy of 5'9 at his worst! But, as i always say, it is just a picture and one picture is never enough! So if Rob met him and said he looked about 178 with more footwear, he really could be 175-176!
[Editor Rob: I don't think I could have got a better photo with him for height unless I wore the boots he wore that weekend. This particular photographer was all over the place with his camera that evening and other days, I'm surprised this one came out as good as it did!

Click Here. Minus an inch and he's right on the 5ft 9.25 mark...I believe casper is a good example of an actor who measured his claim.]
Christian said on 6/Aug/14
He looks 180 cm in that picture so I guess a tad more than 5'9'' is possible.
Khalid said on 6/Aug/14
He looks like a lifter, to be honest he looks 5'10 in the photo.
[Editor Rob: he of course looked 178cm, but with cowboy boots he had an inch extra footwear.]
Khalid said on 6/Aug/14
Just like you said, without cowboy shoes he looks more 5'9.
Sam said on 6/Aug/14
One of the few celebs with that specific of a stated height and he does indeed look a week inch taller than Rob I guess.
miko said on 6/Aug/14
Nice posture, and honest about his height.
James B said on 6/Aug/14
With the boots on looks 5'11 compared to rob.
Oanh said on 6/Aug/14
I can see 5'9 1/4" without the footwear advantage.
Peyman said on 6/Aug/14
according to the footwear advantage he has,he is probably 5ft 8.75in in a good day.
there is no way he is a solid 176 guy
Alucard said on 21/Jul/14
Watched Starship Troopers, Van Dien looked barely shorter than 5'9 max Michael Ironside... Maybe Ironside had lifts, maybe both, Van Dien looked 5'8-5'8.5, nothing more...
superman said on 20/Jun/13
i think he is a strong 5'9 like tom hardy, i guess a strong 5'9 is 5'9.25 but he is listed in 2 places as 5'9 what do you think rob strong 5'9 flat, because this is my height and he doesnt look taller than me, maybe downgrade him to 5'8 flat?
truth178cm said on 10/Jun/13
I think this is right on.
Mr. B said on 27/Mar/13
Was in a movie with his last month. I saw him in a variety of different footware and was next to him in shots. He is an inch taller than me and I am exactly 5'10" in standard mens dress shoes. So I would put him at his stated hieght.
PatB said on 29/Dec/11
Mamun and Casper appear to be about the same height but Van Dien is a lot better looking. You should try to get him for one of your interviewers. None of your three now are very photogenic.
[Editor Rob: this isn't a modelling website, it's a height comparison website.]
Shortish86 said on 6/Nov/11
Doesnt look quite five nine, at best he's 5' 8.5.
Physics Enemy said on 6/Nov/11
I'm not convinced. 5' 8". The 1.5" rule comes into effect!
LAN Jiao said on 5/Nov/11
he atually look 5'7.75 with mamun 5'8.25 nearer camera angle a tad bit , but in real i bet he is the same height as mamun but not quite 5'9. i recall of watch him as a guest in a singapore tv show 12-13 years back , he was slightly shorter than the singapore host name gurmit singh who claim 5'9. i heard someone pointed he was 5'7 , which he could't be this low.
Ras said on 27/Oct/11
5'8" flats for Casper IMO.
LAN Jiao said on 24/Oct/11
i can buy max 5'8 without shoe for casper. with lift 5'10.
mofo said on 22/Oct/11
If he had "no less than 1 inch footwear advantage" in the pic above,how come he looks the same height as Manum then?
He looks 5ft8 in the pic?
Whats going on?
LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
casper with advantage shoe and look lower than 1,735m mamun here yet he was not lower 1,75m? emm.. i think mamun maybe tip toe here or grew taller to 5'10.
Hullywood said on 17/Oct/11
Rob, you belive in the 5foot9.5?
1.74m loose/bad posture, not standing straight, possible for him?
[Editor Rob: I don't think he's less than 5ft 9 ]
LAN Jiao said on 16/Oct/11
casper jr had 5inch on his famous dad. if dad was 5'9 listed here then jr be 6'2. if casper jr dad is just 5'7.75 as i see 1.5cm below 173.5 mamun jr boy is just 6'1.

Another photo of Casper and his son.
gabergoo said on 15/Oct/11
correction ,he himself stated that he is almost 5'9 1/2....definetly most of his movies he doesnt come across as being short....thats the point. anything that is near say 5'10" will not come across as being short on the movie screen...why??...well, because if you take the shoes that the actor is wearing, it will probably add at least 1 to 1 1/2 inches to his height...hence a 5'10" guy will be near 6'....only the really short guys like pacino, cruise, hoffman, devito..etc....appear obviously short.
gabergoo said on 14/Oct/11
Casper looks at least 5'10" in this height is 5'10 1/4 inches and he doesnt appear shorter than myself. He definetly looks taller than mamun..its obvious in their shoulder height comparison.
LAN Jiao said on 14/Oct/11
casper jr look 6-7cm shorter than tiny lister who can pass 6'5 with shoe on so how could he be near 6'4? what a joke he prank to mamun. he is near 6'2 not 6'4 and casper sir look 5'7.9 with 5'8-1/4 mamun.
Mr. R said on 13/Oct/11
I saw Casper in Hwood one night with his gorgeous wife. He is 5-9.
Mamun said on 11/Oct/11
Somebody please do a comparison between my Big Brother and Casper JR. I am sure he would be at least 2.5 taller than my Big Brother .


avi said on 10/Oct/11
Mamun says on 30/Sep/11
This Casper with his very well mannered 17 year old son also named " CASPER " !

no no more than 6'1 weak 5 inch difference. which would put Lister at his appropriate weak 6'4 range. not sure how his son got 6'4. he'd struggle to be 4 inches taller than his father!(which is good enough anyway)
Triplescrew said on 9/Oct/11
Mamun says on 5/Oct/11

Just compare him to my Big Brother Alex who is 6' 0.5" !



I did lol, that's where I got the 6'0.5" from. Taking another look at it I can see 6'1" but not much over.
LAN Jiao said on 7/Oct/11
Junior casper Max 6'1.5 , lister 6'4, casper 5'8
Legend said on 6/Oct/11
I think his son is 6'2 max
LAN Jiao said on 6/Oct/11
Casper junior look pushing 6'1.25 with mamun. With lister he look 6'1.5 at best
Mamun said on 5/Oct/11
No he looks much taller than that . Just compare him to my Big Brother Alex who is 6' 0.5" !


Triplescrew said on 5/Oct/11

His son looks about 6'0.5"
Meat on bones said on 4/Oct/11
His son is pretty tall, looks around 6'2. Van Dien is barely taller than Mamun, 174 is accurate.
carnegie said on 4/Oct/11
thought this guy was like 5ft 10
LAN Jiao said on 4/Oct/11
Casper junior is no way 6'3.5 he look big 2inch under tiny lister whose not a real 6'5 but then 6'4 with mamun post. His dad is likely 5'8 than 5'9.5_
Legend said on 3/Oct/11
Horrible angle on this picture. Still looks 5'8.5 max with the one inch footwear advantage. I'm going with 5'8.5 max.
Mr. Tempus said on 2/Oct/11
weak 5'9
Meat on bones said on 1/Oct/11
Looks same size as Mamun.
burby said on 30/Sep/11
Odd angle on this photo....
MD said on 30/Sep/11
If Casper has footwear advantage, even in this photo, you can tell he's no taller than Mamum. No way this guy is 5'9".
Alex said on 30/Sep/11
5'9 may be a push for this guy. Could be 5'8 1/2 but its tough to tell with the low camera angle
Triplescrew said on 30/Sep/11
Weird angle to be sure. Could be anywhere from 5'8" to 5'9"

here mamun looks taller than casper. 5'7.5 barefoot if he really had advantage. he always wore something big down his feet.
Josh B said on 27/Sep/11
Difficult photo to compare heights, but if he has a full inch footwear advantage he really looks like he's pushing 5'8 in all honesty.
AlohaGitte said on 3/Aug/11
According to Casper Van Dien on Twitter he is 5'9
The Horse of FUNK said on 13/Jul/11
I thought more 5'8" than 5'9". I think he's listed as 5'8.5" on some sites. Anyway, actually a pretty enjoyable actor, kind of a shame how he faded away so quickly after Starship Troopers.
wow said on 20/Jun/11
I thought he was about 6'0 or 5'11
Triplescrew said on 21/May/11
actually Xkon Kodjoe is listed 6'2.5". A guy that height has eyes that are around 5'9 to 5'10. Van Diem comes up to Kodjoe's eyes so 5'9" seems correct.
horacle said on 1/Apr/11
5'9 seems right
xkon said on 11/Mar/11
Boris Kodjoe is listed at 6ft3.5 (1m92) here on celebheights. Don't you think Casper van Dien looks shorter than 5ft9 next to Kodjoe. Watch the part from 03:00-04:20:

A fan said on 23/Dec/10
I'm a huge Casper fan, I am exactly 5'9.

I got a chance to meet him at the Phoenix Comic Con this year. I was wearing regular shoes and so was he and I was slightly taller. I'm saying he's 5'8. Good news for him is he's incredibly good looking person (no homo)
Anonymous said on 11/Dec/10
5'9 is right i bet
ras said on 7/Sep/07
He didn't look much taller than David Paymer in a movie they made, and Paymer is no more than 5 ft 7, if that, so he is indeed in the 5 ft 8-5 ft 9 range.
AJ said on 31/Aug/07
How come the sudden downgrade
Editor Rob said on 19/Dec/06
"I grew an inch when I was 20 and an inch when I was 21. It was a late spurt"
Lmeister said on 16/Jun/05
Hmm...I really believe that Mr.R is right. He looked shorter than Johnny Depp in Sleepy Hollow. Both had similar shoes. He does look rather short in every movie. I think he is more in 5'8''- 5'9'' range than his "official" height...
Mr. R said on 30/May/05
Hate to tell you, but he is barely 5-9 if that. He spoke with us after the Oscars a few years ago, and I got pics somewhere. He is much shorter in person, and wears boots a lot! Notice, he rarely gets cast against taller actors, or he does not share many direct scenes with them if they are taller!
