Colin Ferguson's Height
5ft 11 (180.3 cm)
Canadian Actor, best known for playing Jack Carter on Eureka. He's also appeared in Opposite of Sex and Lake Placid 3. In this convention photo I had about 0.2 inch more footwear than him. On twitter in 2015: "Went on IMDB and found out that I am only 5'11" and have been married for 3 years! How exciting to find out!!"
5ft 8 Rob and Colin @ Wolf Haven One, 2009
When fans come up to me it’s always like, “Are you the Dirty Jobs guy,” you know? And I’m like “No,” and it’s like, “Oh, you’re the Eureka guy. You’re smaller than I thought.”
I get – I take that to mean I read as incredibly manly on screen, that’s what I think that means. But I’m six feet, I’m not small.

I've just caught the end of 'Lake Placid 3' and I'd give it a whole lot more than the one star it was awarded by my TV Guide. 📖⭐❌
Colin was seriously rather good in this. I had to struggle to keep a straight face at times, especially when one large croc was hanging onto the bumper of a car, but then there were plenty of gory, horrific moments, earning it its 18 certificate. 🚗🐊
I thought Colin was anything from 5ft11 - 6ft, and seeing 5ft11 here I'm quite pleased with my growing 'skills' in height judgement! 📏
Not often do you get the chance to observe a crocodile strolling down the food aisle of a supermarket. Well, you do in this. It's a shame Mr Croc isn't content with a bit of shop-bought food instead of angrily chasing his dinner. I think in his case, a bit of shoplifting would be overlooked!
⭐ I liked the little boy, played by Jordan Grehs. He was reprimanded by his Dad, played by Colin, for attempting to 'play' with the reptilian monsters! 🐊

Looks roughly 179cm.Maybe even closer to 178 range judging by the photo-definitely a weak 5'11.

Rob could he be 179-180 guy? I feel the odds are greater that he is a fration under 5 `11 than over?
I think he is going to measure pretty close to 5ft 11...I would say the odds might be more a little under, than over.

I think he look 180cm in Eureka.
Zampo said on 20/Oct/18
No lower than 5'10.5. Possibly 5'10.75 based on the photo (the most I would estimate for him), judging by how he looks Rob.

Hilarious reading him get indignant over IMDB listing his true height
Darkpower72 said on 26/Jun/18
5'11" looks fair. Probably claims 6'0" since that's his height in shoes. The very worst he's 5'10.5", but that's too low for him.
Nik said on 20/Apr/18
I think 5'11" is a bit high to be truthful!
Dinho101 said on 19/Apr/18
Definitely around 179.25 on his low id say. It'd be respectable if he claimed 5'11 no problem with that but come on six foot, deary me.

He's definitely six feet (183 cm) away, he's not that tall. In the photo, I do not see more than 2.5 inches, so 179 cm/ 5'10.5" is best for him.
Bobby said on 9/Feb/18
I'm seeing more 5'10 than 5'11 in this picture.
Don Julio said on 14/Jan/18
179.5 cm tops, hate it when these guys who aren't even 5'11" claim 6 foot. Once you reach 182cm I think it's safe to say that you are basically 6 foot range but not this guy
Anonymous said on 20/Nov/17
6 cm difference... 179 guy.
Ben said on 6/Sep/17
He looks like I would do if I was standing next to you Rob. I would say 179/180
S.J.H said on 18/Jul/17
He don't look over 5'10 with rob. But rob stated he had 0.2' more sneaker then 5'10.25" a shout. Maybe 5'10.5
Jordan87 said on 18/Apr/17
If Rob is saying he had 1/4" less footwear I can see where he can push 5'11" but not 6'0.
berta said on 5/Dec/16
in the photo he looks around 179
6'1 cowboy said on 23/Nov/16
Not close to his six foot claim. 5'10 1/4
Brandon said on 1/Sep/16
He looks about 2 inches taller, rob is about 5'8.1/5'8.2" if i remember correctly. So that would put him at about 5'10.2+0.2=5'10.4 and it does look like he is leaning just a little bit more so add about 0.1/0.2 for that and you get about 5'10.5/5'10.6". So i would say 5'10.5"--5'10.75" is his range, not so sure about a full 5'11"
travis said on 29/Aug/16
he not even short
said on 27/Jul/16
Id give him 5"10 - 179 in shoes which might give him half an inch . 5"10 flat barefoot
Editor Rob: I don't think he is that short.
AlexMahone said on 30/Oct/14
Stop downgrading!!! Yeah...Ron listin is spot on. 180cm.
Oanh said on 1/Oct/14
With Rob's slight advantage...I can see 5'10.5" for Colin.
Anon said on 1/Oct/14
I have seen him in Eureka and some tv films, 5'10 max.
Mastro said on 13/Apr/14
Just watched a Eureka where he claims to be 6'1"- no way
lelman said on 22/Jan/14
@Bakura They're anomalies.
f said on 8/Dec/13
truth...just because he meets him at above the eyebrow doesn't mean it's only two inches...some people have longer heads or necks
Bakura said on 14/Sep/13
@lelman: What about the likes of David Duchovny and Christian Bale, who claim 6ft and geniunely are that height?
Jack said on 26/Aug/13
Nice illustration of 2 inches height difference
truth said on 17/Aug/13
This is how I look next to 5ft8 men, solidly taller but not by much. 5ft10.
lelman said on 30/Jul/13
He's a Hollywood actor who claims 6'. Therefore, he is 5'10".
(S)ain't said on 2/Jan/13
That guy looks alot like my Dad. My Dad is 5'10". (Was 5'11" before a car crash). I would say this guy is the same.
steven said on 11/Jan/12
he only look 5'10 on rob. but hhe does have a six footer face.
ChiasmataX said on 24/Nov/11
Accurate listing for a dude with 190cm+'s head.
Mathew said on 16/Nov/11
Possibly 6' in the morning?
Shaun said on 16/Oct/11

how tall is colin ferguson 5'11 1/4
darwin gonzalez said on 5/Aug/11
how tall is ulrich thomsen
James said on 15/May/11
Remember though rampage rob has got slight hair and shoe advantage so probably would actually appear legit 5'11 if you count out all those factors.
So i think 5'11 (180cm) is good for this guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/11
That could be bang on James...all im getting from this pic is a 5"10ish dude
Nonnie said on 11/Apr/11
He's at least 6'. I know him, and have measured him against multiple people. It's a thing.

I look taller than this against my dad who is 5'8 and Im 5'11 (Coincidently the same height as those in the picture) yet as I said I am taller in comparison so I this guy is 5'10 or 10.5
jay said on 31/Mar/08
6'1'' is my best guess... i'll post some pics later

On Eureka, Ferguson does look like a six footer in his scenes with 5'9" Joe Morton. BTW, Salli Richardson (another Eureka cast member), 5'4"?
