6ft1 peak is arguable.

He looked VERY close to the same height as Kevin Kline in the movie Dave. They might have been the same height. I say Grodin is 6'1'' or 6'1.5''.

This guy was a legendary actor he sorta went off grid didn't he. Man 5'1 at 13? I think I was taller or that height at that age.

slightly taller than 5'10" gene wilder in The Woman in Red 1984. So 6 foot range is close enough...

I think Kotto was 6ft4-5 range. Looked it in Live And Let Die. Not the reported 6ft6 though.

He was 53 in Midnight Run and still looked 184cm at least
[Editor Rob: I think maybe Yaphet could look 6ft 4 range in that film, at the end anyway...but as you can see, I found Grodin's claim of 6ft 1.]

I didn't think he looked over 6 ft next to Beatty in Heaven Can Wait.

In his 70s, in a recent episode of Law & Order: SVU, he looked to be the same height as six foot tall Danny Pino.

Actually, Grodin looked like a monster next to De Niro in several shots of Midnight Run and the difference between them is never two inches but, depending on posture and angle, either three or four. By the way, his arrest warrant in that film gives his height as 6'2'' and I at least wouldn't rule out a peak height of 6'0.75'' so that 6'2'' might have been roughly his height in shoes. He certainly looked big and imposing next to De Niro.

Yeah, there appeared to be a max 3 inch difference with De Niro in Midnight Run and sometimes it looked closer to a 2 inch difference. I also recall De Niro being towered over by Yaphet Kotto in that movie, of course.

In Midnight Run he didnt seemed so tall beside 5ft9 Robert De Niro and of course in the 80s comedy Seems Like Old Time he looked 4 inches shorter than costar Chevy Chase. He never was taller than 5ft11.5

If you look closely at his files in Midnight Run it says he's 6'2,160 lbs.,has black hair and brown eyes so there's all his information.

He towered over Robert DeNiro in Midnight Run. I'd have said 6ft1/6ft2.

He was 53 in this film so maybe he shrunk some inches. Funny thing about this guy's age,as well. He was born in 1935 and even in this film and his later films like Beethoven,Clifford he's always appeared to look about 30/40-something, and yet he was 30/40-something back in the 60s and 70s. He's always looked very young. He's now 73 and I'm like WHOA !!!!!!!!!!

Please explain if Grodin is over six feet, why was he was at least five inches shorter than 6'4" Yaphet Kotto in MIDNIGHT RUN? He's probably closer to 5'11".

Freakin' Fester. He and Cromag running after actresses was like Bellevue's back door opening and the nurses running.

He made a movie with Jim Belushi one time, and in it they pretty much looked exactly the same height.
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
Funny.my first time at Regis was for Grodin and I watched Fester get him! 1990.
Brad said on 7/Dec/06
I saw "Fester" get his autograph from him at NBC N.Y. in '83. 6' it is.
