I like the arc that Huddleston co-starred twice with Jeff Bridges in the 70s movie Bad Company and in Lebowski and both times plays a guy who cons Bridges's character. Would've believed 5'11" for David at peak.

5’11 Peak perhaps? 5’10.5 current.

He passed away in 2016. There is no current height. He was 85 years old, so he clearly lost at least 2" from his prime.

Rob, he passed away at 85 years of age. The average 80 year old male loses 2". He lost at least that during his life, plus the fact that he was overweight.

Oh yes, David played Santa in 'Santa Claus the Movie', with Dudley Moore playing one of his elves. He looked rather taller than 5ft10.5/11, but that had a great deal to do with the size of the elves!

5ft10.5 for David.
