Damon Herriman's Height
5ft 6 ¾ (169.5 cm)
Australian actor, best known for roles in TV series Justified, Secret City, Flesh & Bone, Perpetual Grace, LTD, Mindhunter and film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. In People he said "If you’re going for a character like Charles Manson, you can only cast people of a certain height, so that narrows the pool because the guy was incredibly short. A lot shorter than me, but I’m only 5’7″, so I scraped into the pool."

Incidentally, the deranged Manson once said "Everybody says I'm Five-Foot-Two. When I was arrested, I was Five-Foot-Seven. Now I went down to Five-Foot-Six...then I went down to Five foot...then I went to Four feet..now I'm down to Five feet two, pretty soon I'll be Five feet...by the time that you all die, I'll be about three feet tall...."
. The interviewer then asked "So How tall are you Charlie", and he replied "Five Six...and Three Quarters"

Funny the guy they got to play Manson is the height he claimed to be. I think the real Manson was probably more 5'4" - 5'6" range.

Well at least his claim is quite honest. Manson's I wouldn't bet.

@ Littlelee - I have a documentary about Manson with real footage and I can't see him being any more than 5ft2-3. So he was little as well as an evil coward! The South Park cartoon of him loafing about in Hell paid particular attention to how miniscule he was!
Damon gets 5ft6.25. If he's playing the part of Manson in Quentin Tarantino's new movie, I can't see the Big T casting someone of 5ft7 or near to that height to play the Midget M!

Charles Manson is definitely 5ft 2 at best no way is he near 5ft 7 I've seen photos and the police mug shot of him barely over the five foot mark despite what a certain article saya

Actually, having another look at the photo, the height chart doesn't look reliable at all. I mean, look at the distance between the 4' and 5' mark and compare it to Manson's head and body. Not a chance that's only a foot difference!!!

Don't really know him, but this doesn't seem a bad shout with 5'8ish A. J. Buckley: Click Here Click Here
As for the real Charles Manson, was he really just under 5'7??? I don't know how reliable this is, but he really didn't look above his 5'2 listings in this mugshot: Click Here
I do not know, I have only watched the one interview to see the quote...he didn't seem as short as 5ft 2 when he stood up.
