[Joel McHale] doesn't make me feel short, but he does make me feel like less of a man. Joel McHale, is I think, 6-foot-4, and so is Chevy Chase. I'm 6-foot, which is great. One of the things people say often to me on the street is 'Wow! You're much taller than I expected!' Because of my frame - I'm kind of wiry and gangly, and I look like an Indian Gumby - my frame is way smaller than Joel or Chevy's.

He is absolutely dwarfed by 6’3” Joel McHale (plenty of reference shots place him and Chevy closer to the 6’3” mark in flat feet no shoes) - to the point where there is no way the height difference is anything less than 5”. He looks almost exactly next to Joel what 5’9” guys look like next to me and I’m 6’2”- he comes about midway up the bridge of Joel’s nose, maybe the very bottom of his eyes - and that is pretty much exactly where the top of a 5’9” to 5’9.5” man’s head is for me: I can comfortably look clean over their head in a crowd. Proportions tend to scale and Joel is built and proportioned similar to me, just a bit taller- so from all I have seen, he strikes me as solid 5’10” to 5’10.5” range - a 5’11” might be possible with a morning measure, but 6’0” is DEFINITELY above him. He consistently looks 2-2.5” taller than Glover who is 5’8”, so if I had to make a bet on what you would measure if you caught him on the street mid-day and made him take off his shoes and stand in a neutral posture, 5’10.5” seems almost certainly very close to the mark. 100% sure he is no six footer. 6’0” next to a 6’3” to 6’3.5” Joel would come up to roughly where Joel’s eyebrows are and he looks closer to midway up the bridge of his nose when standing right by him. 6’0” simply would not be nearly as dwarfed as he is by Chevy and Joel. 5’10.5”- bet on it. He can look slightly taller because he is narrow/lanky but he’s only slightly taller than average.

Not when compared to Joel Mchale or Chevy Chase.

5'11.5" is what I thought as well. Looks exactly 3 inches taller than Donald Glover.

Ben Schwartz with thicker footwear can make him look 1/4 taller. 5'11 1/2 downgrade is still considering fine.

Easily a strong 6 footer, maybe a shade higher.

Click Here He can look 6'0 with Joel Mchale.

I thought he would be taller because of his skinny body type. But yes somewhere in the 5'11-6'0 range seems right.

It would be great to see a photograph of Danny with Jeff Hordley!

Yeah, definitely not taller than Ben Schwartz. I don't know if this means Ben needs and upgrade, but 5'11.75" is too much for Danny.

With Tennant too he may well be nearer 5ft 11 than 6ft
MD said on 2/Aug/20
Actually, on second thought, maybe a bit shorter than this? Here he is with Ben Schwartz, who is listed at 5'11", here:

In fact, he might even have a slight footwear advantage in this shot over Ben quite honestly. There is another shot in this group of photos where he is literally craning in front of everyone to get the height advantage over Ben.

So, probably closer to 5'11" than 6'0". He does give off as being taller than he really is.
Editor Rob
Could be 11.5 at most there

Yeah, not quite 6-foot has always been my guess for him.

I always like to watch voice actors having a laugh on the 'extras' of the DVDs. It looks so much fun! 🤣😂🤣

He looks around 6ft, so Mr Pudi gets just that. 🍮😋
