Rob, What do you make of this picture of Sam Rockwell and Darren criss?

Does make me question who is taller -

Editor Rob
Criss can look more like the 5ft 8 guy there than Sam.
I think the general consensus seems to be Sam is under 5ft 8.

It's interesting how camera angles impact height. His shoes look normal and he can pull of looking 5'9 in photo above.

"he looks like a guy who is taller than 171 cm but shorter than 172" as if you can tell...
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 22/Mar/21
170 cm max

5’7.5 is right

The highest I'd guess would be 5ft7 3/4" .. He looks a guy who is taller than 171 cm but shorter than 172.
5ft7 1/2" is spot on

What do you think is the percentage of people who're only 1/4" under a mark (like 5'7.75" for example) yet still round down 3/4"? I'd say it's rare, like 3% at most.
Editor Rob
The percentage is probably very small compared to those who round up. I couldn't put an exact figure on it though, but less than 5% I'd agree with.

Definitely shorter than me at least!!! Bit more than Tom Cruise at least I can say. 171cm range is best guess for Darren's height...
Nik said on 9/Apr/19
I'm confident that Darren can pull off 5'7.5"!

Hey Rob if he's 5ft 7.75 is him rounding up to 5ft 8 a reasonable claim to make ?
Editor Rob
Rounding up fractions is expected if you don't want to say 'and three quarters' or 'and a quarter'.
Jake the Snake said on 11/Nov/18
Hey Rob at times do you think he can appear any closer to 172cm ?
Editor Rob
5ft 7.75 is possible for him.
Spark said on 18/Sep/18
Shorter than Joe Jonas my guess is 5'7 170cm max

With 5'11" Matt Bomer, who is losing a bit of height, too.

I still say a 5'7" flat is kind of the peak of what he could be.
Andrea said on 24/Mar/18
This seems about right. I've just finished to watch the second season of American Crime Story (you should really add it to his credits, Rob) and, although on his own he can look taller, it is quite clear he's more on the short side when you see him with others. I totally understand 5'7 estimates because he can certainly look no more than that at times, but I wouldn't go under. Overall I think that anywhere between 5'7 and 5'7.5 is what he may measure.
Here are a few photos for reference:

Good listing!

There is quite a bit of evidence showing him to be 5'7" flat and not a centimeter more, quite honestly.
Ben said on 19/Jun/17
He's around 5'7". Saw him standing next to 5'8" David Mazouz in David's latest Instagram post. There was clearly an inch between them.
kevin said on 31/May/17
thought he was taller when standing alone... this guy has great propotions for being only about 5ft7

I think he & Nick Jonas probably the same height 170cm

I know this isn't the most popular page, but Rob, do you seriously see him as this high? I'm quite certain he isn't above a full 5ft7.

I know some of these are angled and you can't tell footware (but since most are suit shots assume 75-1.0 inch for shoes) and I can show other pictures

Looks shorter than someone like Rami Malek with 5ft8 Christian Slater

He probably isn't below 5ft7 but I'd the knock half inch off tbh. Absolutely no chance he's the 5ft8 he claims. Even looking at him next to a guy like Kevin Mchale, who you have a picture with, they seem very close.
Editor Rob
the lowest I'd guess would be 5ft 7...he can look as low as that, the highest I've seen him look 5ft 7.5, so anywhere in that zone is believable.

Hi Rob , how tall do you think Chord Overstreet (Sam Evans) on Glee is?
Editor Rob
Sully, he seemed a skinny guy, nearly 5ft 11

With an also listed 5'7.5" Leslie Odom Jr.

I do think he's shorter than this listing.
justmyopinion said on 3/Aug/14
His height confuses me. The more glee I watch the shorter he seems. Chris Colfer is listed as 5'9" on this site, but in every shot of the two of them standing next to each other on the show Chris Colfer is noticeably taller, by like 2 inches at least. If Colfer is 5'9" I'd think Darren Criss is closer to 5'7"

I met Darren Criss and I am 5.7 and he was slightly taller so I believe 5.8 1/2. he was good looking though
Edlt2882 said on 13/Jan/14
I have a friend who's 5'0" and just took a picture with this guy in Japan (of all places). She placed him at a strong 5'8" with normal shoes, so 5'7.5" seems spot on.
Md said on 22/Oct/13
With John Stamos, who Rob has listed here at 5'10.5", though, I think he's shorter after seeing him on Jimmy Fallon's show:

5'7.5" is the absolute tops for this guy.
Kate said on 19/Oct/13
I would have thought a solid 5'8?
