He didn’t look 6ft3 at all in Happy Gilmore, more like 6ft2 at a push but those scenes on the golf course were kinda tricky.

I think this prolific actor usually has looked a strong 6'2" guy for most of his roles.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/20
Proportionally in that photo does not look remotely anything close to 6ft3 lbut in earlier roles could look near it. In Grease 2 looked it definitely

These arguments look interesting! I'm going to have to check this particular Christopher out for myself!
Hmm... I believe he might be making an appearance in 'Boardwalk Empire' quite shortly, so I'll look forward to reporting back - if I'm right! 😊

Season 3 episode 4 of Ballers ~17 minutes in. He's barefoot with Dwayne Johnson wearing dress shoes and barely an inch shorter.

Doesn't look much taller than 5'9.75" Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore
Charlie said on 19/Apr/17
Christopher is more like 5'10.5 and no more. 6'1 is out of the question for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/17
I could see an argument for 190cm peak but I just don't think he was a solid 6ft3 guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/17
Could be still 187-188cm today.
berta said on 7/Feb/17
this is better never looked a real 6 foot 3 guy
josh jeffords said on 5/Jan/17
Sounds right big tall dude never looks less than 6 2 onscreen of course so 6 1.5 on the low.
Id say a weak 6 3 is a fair claim hell if i was 6 2 .75 or so id say 6 3 about half the time..
Remember hes not an athlete golf is like ping pong.. :/ hahaha meaning he is likely giving a with shoes height.
He did look a solid 6 3 back in some 90 flicks i dont recall seeing him much earlier.

Fix his height now. As you can see, he's taller than John Goodman. Stop trying to appease foolsl ike Rampage Clover

Maybe 187cm now Rob?
Aswell I'm not convinced he was ever quite a 6ft3 guy. Looking at him in Thelma & Louise and Quiz Show I get more of a 189cm impression.
Editor Rob: I had a look and I could see that range too, today he does look like he might be 187 range.
said on 19/May/16
Rob, doesn't he look 6ft1-2 today?
Editor Rob: yeah at times he can look this kind of range.

Looks about 6ft 2 in grease 2 next to the other Co stars including maxwell caulfield. That was 1982 so peak height.

"Christopher McDonald's height is 6ft 1¾in (187cm)"
"Peak height was 6ft 2½in (189cm)"
I'm not convinced he was a quite a genuine 6ft3 guy. In Thelma & Louise he looked around the same as Michael Madsen and Stephen Tobolowski (both may have been a fraction over 6ft2 though). Didn't dwarf Pitt either.
Rob, what do you think?
Hypado said on 23/Feb/15
Peak height was 6ft 3in (191 cm) in the peak is the right for McDonald. Now, 187cm is closer. And Dean Winters always looks 6ft e nothing more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/14
I wouldn't go under 6ft2 for him even though he barely made it to that in Happy Gilmore
said on 7/Oct/14
If Dean Winters is 6'1 (185cm) than McDonald is minimum 6'2.5 (189cm).
In this picture Click Here
you can see that Winters wears a brutal 4cm boot at least. If Rob gave him 185cm than McDonald at least 189.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
Saw Happy Gilmore for the millionth time last night. I'm telling you, he looked about 6ft1-6ft2 tops with Sandler. Probably about the same as Carl Weathers if we're being brutally honest
Guy said on 23/Jul/14
If adam sandler is at least 183 it can be true. But i dont think so, in happy gilmore he looks like 185-186 next to 178 adam sandler.
Ace said on 31/Mar/14
Looked more like 6'1" next to 5'10"Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore
gian92 said on 5/Feb/14
he seems 6'1 for me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/13
I'm going with 6ft2.25-6ft2.5 or about 189cm and that's being generous considering he looked about 6ft1 next to Sandler. There's no way this guy would look eye to eye with someone like Brendan Fraser or Will Ferrell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Aug/13
I think he is 6ft2.25/189cm, possibly 6ft2.5 max.
That's generous considering he looked about 6ft1 at most next to Adam Sandler.
Dean Winters is a strong 6ft1 guy, if not 6ft1.5/187cm
Mathew said on 10/Jul/13
He's about 6'3" yeah.
Maybeman said on 8/Jan/13
I'm going to guess 6'3" was his peak height and that he just isn't there anymore. I was just watching the Las Vegas episode he was in standing next to James Caan. Could be Caan was on a box but there seemed a very small drop.
Sam said on 12/Nov/12
I think McDonald is due for a downgrade, Rob. He might be a strong 6'2" but I don't think he's a real 6'3" guy.

@Cranberries says on 11/Jan/12
Dean winters is 6'1 so this guy is 6'2
Also that picture with Lillard has Mcdonald in the back Lillard is standing in front so Mcdonald is at a disadvantage. Either way Mcdonald comes out 6'2 at best.
steven said on 15/Jan/12
uncle mcdonald is 6'1. 6'3 is a serious joke.
said on 11/Jan/12
Not 6'3" with 6'3"+ Lillard:
Not 6'3" with Dean Winters:
Not 6'3". No more than 6'2.5" to be sure. Downgrade.
jtm said on 17/Oct/11
sandler is 5'9 and mcdonald is 6'1-6'2.
k mart said on 15/Oct/11
from what im hearing he is a rock solid 6'3''. i myslef am a strong 6'3'' too!
give um' the benefit of the doubt! if he says hes 6'3'' than he is 6'3''!~
Clay said on 18/Jul/11
See, Sandler is a legit 5'10'' dont listen to the tools at this site who say he's 5'9'', Hugh.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/11
Well Dmeyer he didn't look 5in taller than Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore. More like 3-4in. Aswell there is a good Sandler is 5ft9.5 range. If that is the case then McDonald doesn't even appear to be 6ft1.
The guy is 6ft2(188cm) at best
Dmeyer said on 22/Jun/11
I met him 7 years ago hé was 6 ft 3 hé was 2 in taller than costner i met thém same day
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/11
6ft2 max. Doesn't have the presence that a real 6ft3 guy should have. He also doesnt look 5 inches taller than Adam Sandler
mohammad said on 25/Mar/11
didn't look 6'3 in happy gilmore, more like 6'1
But i'm not sure, if he's as tall as lillard then i guess he's 6'3, he just has the frame like a 6-6'1 guy.
said on 13/Feb/11
Closer to 6"2 Rob?
[Editor Rob: he could anywhere 6ft 2-3 range, I'm not sure if he is just 6ft 2 though]

walker said on 8/Dec/10
6 foot 1 1/2 seems to be the safest bet
kurt said on 20/Nov/10
This guy does not look 6'3. I'm 6'2 and he looks like he's 6'1 or 6'2 max. THose pictures below with pictures of lillard where he's shorter looks about right. He is slouching a little in them. That doesn't give him enough height though to be even with lillard. The ones where he's taller looks strange.

Looked 6'2.5 instead of 6'3.

6ft 3in yeah!!!! i give him the benefit of the doubt

Did not look 5 inches taller than Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore. Sandler is listed at 5'10.
Kratos said on 23/Nov/08
At least 6'3,he was taller than me by 1.75 inches
dmeyer said on 14/Oct/07
looked near that in person
eric said on 2/Oct/06
looks no bigger than 6-5
Gonzalo said on 24/May/06
He looks very big next to Glenn, at least 6`6. Bad player though
D.J. said on 24/Apr/06
Glenn is 5'8" right? Ira looks almost a foot taller so 6'7" is about right.
deepestvoice said on 12/Apr/06
When I went to a Cavs game and tried to get autographs I was right down there and he walked right past me, so I got a good look at his height. I agree with Rob. 6'6.5-6.7
J. said on 10/Apr/06
Always looked in the 6'7"-ish range to me. 6'6" and some change at the possible lowest.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 10/Apr/06
Sure does seem 6'7 standing next to glenn, maybe find a picture of him in the nba.
