[Has your height ever interfered with you getting a part?]
It used to all the time. I'm not going to mention a name here, but there is a very famous movie star who would not work with me because of that, because he was a shrimpy little guy. [He] didn't want people to know it.

Well, two things. One he was really that big, he wasn't really that tall, but he was really that big. When I did the movie I was six foot four, he was six foot five, but I was 210 pounds and he was 350 pounds and that was 350 pounds of muscle. He was like almost a whole other human being than me when I stood next to him but to actually get that that height of Coffey there were apple cuts, apple boxes all over the (set), trails of them that he would walk along while we walked next to him just to give him that height.

He looked a decent 6’4 peak. Worst case is he fell to 6’3 7/8 at evening time
James.B 172cm said on 2/Feb/23
Looked huge in the Green Mile. Towered over all the actors including Tom hanks well except obviously James Cromwell who was 6ft6 at that stage.

Rob how tall do you think is the woman beside him in the photo above? 5'11?
Editor Rob
In some photos with David, 5ft 10-11 looked believable.
Canson said on 23/May/22
@Andrey: I’d say 193 for him 192 or so for Conan
Andrey200 said on 22/May/22
Definitely a bigger chance of a little over 193 peak than Conan O'Brien, who I still have in that 193, minimum 192.7 range peak, but not as likely in the upper 193 range as peak Liam Neeson.
Canson said on 12/Jan/22
@Andrey: I doubt he’s that tall but 6’4 I can see peak
Andrey200 said on 11/Jan/22
I think 193.7 peak wouldn't be surprising
Andrey200 said on 27/Nov/21
Rob, do you reckon he is the same height as Liam Neeson or is one taller by a few millimeters?
Editor Rob
I'd say Liam has better chance of a slightly taller measurement in prime

The Horror Channel are showing Stephen King's 'The Langoliers' this afternoon, as a special August Bank Holiday treat. They often show a Stephen King epic on Bank Holidays; last time it was 'The Stand'.

This is one of David's truly NICE roles. Your heart goes out to him right from the beginning when we hear that his ex-wife has died in a terrible way.

David plays a captain of a flight firm called 'American Pride'. He's certainly at his peak in this 90s extravaganza, which impressed me so much when I first saw it that I watched it on Christmas Day and then a month later, on my birthday!


6ft4 peak; 6ft3.5 today.
Tall Sam said on 2/Aug/21
The one with Ryan Hurst that Rob posted is a more even shot, Morse definitely looks to have shrunk a bit. I don’t think Hurst is a full 6’5” guy and has about an inch on David.

🎊🎁🎂🎈 Happy Birthday David! 🎈🎂🎁🎊

Wishing the great actor, David Morse, a wonderful 67th Birthday with his family, which include 2 sons and a daughter, and his friends.

6ft4 peak; half-an-inch less today. 😉

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/20
He looked very skinny in Inside Moves and St. Elsewhere so maybe was closer to 170lbs then but in something like The Crossing Guard looked 230lbs of muscle
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Aug/20
Well, fancy that! David is starring in 'Medium' as Douglas Lydecker, a man with a lot of power in that he has his own business, but all that money is meaningless when your son is a psychotic maniac. 😮

Confident that his own treatment of the rogue will work, he gives him pills, but the selfish piece of work just flushes them down the toilet. 💊💊🚽

With so much money and power, you'd think that David's character would pay for supervision of the disgraceful sicko, but he wouldn't want the knowledge of his ways ruining his hard-earnt reputation. Alas, he pays the ultimate price, getting murdered by him with a broken bottle to his jugular. He was 55/56 at the time this was made, but still as strong as many men half his age, picking the louse up with ease to have a go at him! 👏😋

Yes, I definitely preferred his parts in 'The Green Mile' and 'The Langoliers'!

David gets six foot four for his peak and half-an-inch less for today. He turns 67 in October, so that's fairly good going. 😁👍📏
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Jul/20
@ Alex 6'0 - I assumed you've been watching 'The Green Mile'? Oui? Brilliant film, isn't it?

The last time I saw it, it was followed on the Horror Channel by 'The Green Inferno'. Two serious films, both 18-rated, but after watching the beautiful likes of 'The Green Mile', I simply wasn't in the mood to see the horrific likes of 'The Green Inferno'. The former is a Stephen King film of goodwill and what is right, following a childlike gifted man and his tragic surroundings on Death Row before World War II, whereas Eli Roth's Inferno shows the terrible consequences of trying to help people when you haven't 'done your homework' properly.

Have a good weekend, Alex, and very pleased to meet you! 😃👍
Alex 6'0 said on 8/Jul/20
6'4. Had 4-4.5 on tom hanks
Nik said on 28/Jun/20
@ andrew jones - Tom Cruise is only slightly short, in fact he is close to average! He is far more average than David Morse!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jun/20
My favourite of David's movies HAS to be 'The Green Mile', followed by 'The Langoliers', both Stephen King films. I've arrived at the 'Green Mile' scene wherein he, Tom and some other prison officer are all entranced by the little grey mouse - or should I say gray - this is American, after all! Apart from Michael Clarke Duncan, who plays the gifted gentle giant, and whose height is digitally enhanced, David is the tallest member of the cast. I'm watching this fabulous film on Film 4, which means it'll show again, folks! XXX

He gets 6ft4 peak and 6ft3.5 for today.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/20
Actually, this guy could also give a strong 6ft4 impression at times. Taller than Ed Begley for sure
Jkiller said on 25/May/20
Peak was 6'4, nowadays 6'3.5.
OriginalAnon said on 24/May/20
Looks 193cm in Disturbia and The Green Mile. Has that 6'4'' look about him. I have no idea about current height.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Feb/20
David is in 'House' at the moment, (on Five Star from 4-6 in the afternoons) trying hard to bring House down and ruin him, and ironically, I found him turning up in an episode of 'Medium' last night. It's just as well Patricia Arquette was wearing a pair of very high heels!

Peak - 6ft4
Now - 6ft3.5.
Anon11 said on 8/Jan/20
I don't know about now but he always looked like a legitimate 6'4'' in Disturbia, The Green Mile.
Canson said on 25/Nov/19
@Rampage: in the Negotiator he could give the 6’4” impression off still. He wore boots but he had SLJ by a good 2” plus
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/19
In the St. Elsewhere days could give a 6ft5 impression because he was very skinny. Don’t recall if he edged out Ed Begley though
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Oct/19
If Morse wife is only 5'10 then i wouldn't buy over 6'2 from a peak Morse. But i'm personally think Morse peak low is 6'3 3/4 maybe right at 192.5cm and more like a strong 6'3 1/4 now compare to big 6'4 Ryan Hurst.
andrew jones said on 26/Aug/19
Anybody else think Tom Cruise is the movie star he’s talking about?
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Aug/19
I'm more interested to know Susan Wheeler Duff (Morse's wife) height. Google says 5'10 that is BS. She always look 6'0 with him. Morse is def 6'4 peak and 6'3 1/2 now.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jul/19
Normally I really like David Morse. He was lovely in 'The Langoliers' and 'The Green Mile', but the part he plays in 'House' and the cop hell-bent on bringing House down is downright horrid. He's taller than Greg House as well, 😝 but Dr House, played by Hugh Laurie, can still look him square in the face.

6ft4 peak;
6ft3.5 now.

Footnote:. David's copper loses, thanks to Cuddy lying in Court! 👏
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Jul/19
At 34 Morse claim to be 170 lbs which is very slim for a 6'4 guy same peak weight as Jeff Goldblum. Morse look above 194 lbs in Outsiders two,three years ago. But in 1980 Inside Moves i watch twice feel Morse look under 165.
Canson said on 8/Jan/19
@Berta: he still looked 6’4” or very close in Negotiator
berta said on 3/Nov/18
you could make a argument that he was legit 193 guy. either this or 6 foot 4 1/8 peak is my guess
Canson said on 3/Oct/18
Both listings are good ones. Maybe 6’3.25 worst case now but a peak 6’4” isn’t unbelievable
James B 171.5cm said on 11/Jun/18
6ft4 or 6ft3 i think at his peak
Canson said on 17/May/18
I can buy him being 6’4 peak. Maybe 6’3 7/8 since they look the same
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Apr/18
In the Stephen King films 'The Langoliers' and 'The Green Mile', David looks a good 6ft4, minimum height! Okay, so he looks mega-tall in 'The Langoliers', but in the latter of the two films mentioned, he has some way to go to be able to look James Cromwell square in the face! Cromwell looks so lanky it's almost amusing, because there are male actors galore in the film, and one can tell that even Tom Hanks is considerably above average, and David Morse very tall indeed!

He gets 6ft4, and that has to dwindle down by half-an-inch to arrive at today's height!
Jayme said on 24/Mar/18
I think Doug Hutchinson is the guy who married a sixteen year old and I just recently read he was five foot four in the green mile. Michael Clarke Duncan is listed as six foot five and three hundred and fifty now pounds when he did the green mile. Looks more than that, David Morse is a big dude and Michael towered over him. But they could have done something to make him look even taller than he was. Tom Thanks was six foot even I think. Bunch of big guys. Michael was just bigger in general than the other guys so that helped. Awesome movie. Would be nice to see Doug Hutchinson not play a pyschotic jack ass for once. Later!
Canson said on 18/Oct/17
Never realized how tall his wife was.

Agree @Junior 6’3.5 today legit 6’4” peak or close to it if he wasn’t but I think he was
Junior said on 18/Aug/17
@Hans Meiser

Morse had more heel than his wife flats 0.5-0.6' and look at how she stand. I did say Morse is 6'3.5" and his wife a legit 6'0 standing straight.
teez said on 15/Aug/17
he tall at 6'4
Hans Meiser said on 10/Jul/17
His wife looks just under 6 foot. 182cm. I'm pretty sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/17
I'd say he's about 220lbs these days.
CNROM89 said on 17/Jun/17
His weight listed 195 ıbs everywhere. But he is no under 95 kg at his peak i think.
Editor Rob
I put a weight of 195lbs on the web years ago on the now defunct weight pages, but he was actually described in 1987 as being 170 pounds. Today he could be a bit over 200 now...
Canson said on 14/Jun/17
@SJH: I think peak he was a legit 6'4" but today yea 6'3.5. Tops. Food for thought for many (you already know this). Who's taller between Morse and Conan? Morse looks taller imho even today
S.J.H said on 13/Jun/17
I did say just close enough 6'4 at 192.5cm peak and 191cm now. He losing posture nowadays look like 6'2.5-6'3 when he walk or stand and even standing straight he doesn't look quite 6'3.5 so 6'3.25
Canson said on 9/Apr/17
He was nothing less than 193 prime at his lowest but not much higher either
CNROM89 said on 8/Apr/17

This guy (Mark Lindsay) listed 6'1.25 (186cm.). I think it's good for him.
Canson said on 3/Apr/17
@Ramage: yea he's in boots most of the time though outside. The pic inside the bar where he's in front of Jackson he looks maybe strong 6'4 tops but nothing below a full 6'4". He maybe been a guy who was a hair over prime honestly

Morse: There’s been one movie star that would not work with me because of my height. I had so many people who had to stand on boxes when they do scenes with me. One year I went to Cannes with the film “The Indian Runner,” that Sean Penn directed. Everyone else in the film was all the same height, and on the red carpet when they were taking photos, none of them would stand next to me, and I totally got it.
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Apr/17
@ Giorgi - Hmm! It could be a great many guys that he calls 'shrimpy', though he could have chosen an adjective that's a mite less patronizing!
Giorgi said on 2/Apr/17

Rampage, you should become a hurdler or a high jumper. Having long legs like that plus being tall gives you a big advantage in those types of sports.
Canson said on 16/Mar/17
In his prime he was easy 6'4" he looked a good 2-3" over Samuel l Jackson in negotiator
Canson said on 16/Mar/17
@Rampage: I think some of what they say is a myth tho because SJH is 2.7" taller than I am (more or less) and only loses 0.9" in a day and because he's taller. I have a friend who is maybe my height or 1/8" shorter and he's built differently very short legs long torso and he loses as much as I lose (6'5flst out of bed/ 6'4.2 at his lowest). I look taller because I'm longer but the difference in height can be exact at times if I am on my feet longer. Yet he claims 6'5" because he's also heavier while I claim 6'4 lol
Canson said on 16/Mar/17
@Rampage: I lose about the same 1.9cm and mine is about 36" (35.5-36).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/17

Goodness! And I thought I had long legs for my height at 37in. Even most women who are 6ft4 don't have legs as long as you. And women on average tend to have longer legs than men at a given height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Mar/17
I've a 39in
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Mar/17
I don't know how old David Morse is, but I presume he must be somewhere in his 50's to have lost half an inch.
But I'm here to talk about his stupendous height! (Well, to me it is!). I have only recently seen him in 'The Green Mile' but it can be a little misleading in that film as Michael Clarke Duncan stars as a giant and there is also another genuinely huge actor in it - James Cromwell, a good three or so inches taller than David is!
A better film to judge David's height is Stephen King's 'the Langoliers'! He looks a full 6ft4 in that! He MUST be the tallest of all the actors in that, to be sure!
David also has a role in Lars Von Trier's 'Dancer in the Dark', with Bjork playing an unfortunate Mum who is going blind. I think that it is because of seeing Bjork with David in this film that I thought she was only about 5ft! I didn't know either of their heights at my time of seeing it, but David looked huge next to Bjork and I made the assumption that it was her lacking the inches from her 5ft4 frame rather than David being particularly tall!
So these are my three comparisons complete and all but the first one show him to be what I consider very tall - 6ft4! He is still darn tall in 'The Green Mile', but there are others taller, even if one is due to special effects!
David Morse gets 6ft3.5 now and 6ft4 for his optimum height. Another pointer to his height is when you see he is clearly taller than 6ft2 Hugh Laurie in 'House'! I had to squeeze that in!
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 11/Mar/17
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@Rampage: I don't lose a full inch either unless I am on my feet for hours at a time at night. A normal day for me is 195.8 and 193.9 (3/4" on the nose) 6'5.08/6'4.33.

@Christian you lose a tad more for your height because I have seen guys like Lillo Thomas wake 6'6" and are 6'5.25 at night but I guess it's all about your build and spine etc. what's your inseam? Mine is a 35-36


I'm between 36 and 37, 215lbs with an an average build. But not everyday do I wake up at 6'6 1/8". Sometimes I wake up at 198.1 or 198.2cm. On more sedentary days, I don't lose that much usually. But on days that I'm physically active, I lose about 7/8", making me 6'5.25" before bed.

Probably was 6ft5 first thing and 6ft4 in the evening. Most guys that height lose a full 1in


Are you 6ft5 straight out of bed as well?

I'm a rare exception. I've got the spine of a 5ft10-11 guy and the legs of a 6ft6+ basketball player so I don't lose a full 1in. I'm approximately 195cm out of bed, 193cm at night (I measured 192.8cm after midnight)


What's your inseam length? I'm assuming it must be pretty long. Maybe 36"? I have a cousin who is similar in height to you but he only wears a 34".

could have been near 6ft 5 and 6ft 4 late afternoon.

Up until say Distrubia, he still seemed a 6ft 4 guy, maybe it's the last 5 years he dropped a bit of height.
Canson said on 27/Dec/16
Peak 193
Today 192

He was a cop in most of the movies and wore boots. Yes he was solid 6'4" however. In the Negotiator he was a bit taller than Jackson
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/16
Peak: 193-194cm
Today: 192-193cm

I think he was a stronger 6ft4 than Ed Begley Jr. in St. Elsewhere.

CNROM89 said on 14/Jul/16
His weight billed 195 ibs. But I think he is 94-98 kg. He has long legs and long arms. I think his inseam is 35 inches, 36... I don't think, 35 inch inseam is good for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/16
Rob, he was also in The Crossing Guard, 12 Monkeys, Disturbia, The Negotiator and television show St. Elsewhere.

@Rampage: yep I agree with you he was a legit 6'4 in his prime without a doubt. Looked pretty close in SWAT still
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/16
Very hard one to call really. They could both look 193/194cm range in the 80's-90's. Neither were under 6ft4 peak, that's for sure.
CNROM89 said on 25/May/16
I don't think Neeson was taller than him. Morse was 193,5-194 his prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/16

maybe neeson had a chance of being a little bit over 6ft 4

She's in flats while he's in thick dress shoes. I reckon she's a solid 183cm. Could Morse be as low as 6ft3/191cm today, Rob?

he might look 6ft 3 at times

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16
Yeah looks 192cm range now. Still a tall guy, though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Feb/16
He could look 194cm in St. Elsewhere at times. Had 4in on Denzel
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jan/16
Rob, they were both the tallest guys on the show and towered over 6ft range guys like Denzel Washington and Mark Harmon. I'll have to look again and see if they shared scenes. It's possible they've both lost a bit of height. Can't explain that picture because Morse looked a legit 6ft4 guy in most things he's in.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/16

Rob, could he be more 6ft3 range now?

He looks slightly shorter than Ed Begley. Jr
Editor Rob
he could be 6ft 3.5 today. I can barely remember anything about st elsewhere, but were morse and begley the same back in the 80's?
Lorne??? said on 18/Dec/15
I won't keep beating this horse, but they're is simply no way that he is/was 2 inches tAller than Hugh Laurie, though in fairness I always thought he was a weak 193cm...
Harold said on 8/Nov/15
A buddy of mine used to live a few houses down from Morse and his family in the suburbs of Philadelphia. My buddy is six feet even and he ran into Morse in the neighborhood. He confirms Morse is in the six foot four range. An undeniably big guy in person.
james b said on 17/May/15
I doubt he's over 192 today
Judd said on 7/Dec/14
He had 4" on Tom Hanks in the green mile...6'4" as peak height is reliable!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/14
Arch, didn't that guy marry a 16 year old?

5ft5-5ft6 would be my guess for him. Great character actor but a cretin.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Oct/14
Rob any chance you can add Doug Hutchison. How is he missing? Morse absolutely dwarfed him in the Green Mile, so did Tom Hanks. Can't be more than 5 ft 6. He's best known for Eugene Victor Tooms in the X-Files, The Green Mile, The Chocolate War, Fresh Horses, A Time to Kill and The Burrowers. One creepy guy but worth adding!
Arch Stanton said on 22/Oct/14
Yeah I guessed him at 6'3.5-6'4 in The Green Mile. He looked near 4 inches taller than om Hanks and 2-3 inches shorter than peak 6'6.5 James Cromwell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/14
Rob, do you think the "shrimpy little guy" that Morse is referring to is a certain Scientologist?
Editor Rob
I've no idea who it could be, but I don't think Tom's anywhere near as bothered with height as the press might have you believe he is. Of course he may have a certain degree of worry, but not manic panic or anything :)

I doubt he is the type to read any internet forums or news/gossip mags much, he's too busy trying to make entertaining movies, sometimes they are good, other times maybe not so good.

Tom Hanks looks short next to him in The green Mile; at least 10 cms. He definitely looks around 1`93

He's a true 6'4" IMO, I know folks who've seen him around Philadelphia and said he was around that. I'm going to make a wild guess that that the shrimpy guy is Tom Cruise, since he is the usual "movie stars are short" punching bag.
176,2Tunman said on 26/Mar/14
In the Indian Runner,he was 6" taller than Viggo Mortensen but he was in Police boots(about 1.25") while Viggo was was in common sneakers probably giving no more than 0.6".Legit 6'4 and Mortensen was deinitely 179-80 (5'10.75 as listed here).
cole said on 22/Jun/13
6'4 is right. Rob, do you happen to know who that 'shrimpy little guy' who refused to work with David was? :P
Editor Rob
no idea
teej said on 24/May/13
Legit 6ft4 no doubt, tall guy, towers many actors, he can look taller than 6'4 because many actors lie about their height therefore making him look taller. Great actor, he always plays the villan haha
Alex said on 17/Feb/13
Legit 6ft4 in his younger days. Now he may have lost a little but probably not much. Maybe he is 192cm because he didn't look much taller than Hugh Laurie in House.
Alex (London) said on 9/Feb/13
Anything less than 6'3" is absurd.

I am willing to believe he knows his own barefoot height and so give him the 6'4" he claims.
Scott 5'11 said on 5/Feb/13
He was clearly taller than 5'11-6'0 Tom hanks in The Green Mile. 6'4 is definitely possible and he did look it

@ROB , can you pls tell who is this shrimpy little guy david morse was talking about ??

he did not pass 6'4 barefoot. he is 6'3 flat. 6'4 with dress shoe

i never wonder he is 6'4. he look a good 6'3 and always was this range.
somebody new said on 5/Nov/11
6'3,25 these days and maybe 6'3,75 peak. Fair to claim 6'4
David618 said on 5/Nov/11
Guy is definitely 6'4", at least. Saw him in The Indian Runner last night with Viggo Mortenson and he dwarfed him. Check him out on St. Elsewhere clips he is a little taller than 6'3.5-6'4" Ed Begley Jr.
LAN Jiao said on 28/Oct/11
with 5'9 hongkong actor tony leung ka fai in Double Vision he look nothing over 6'3.
LAN Jiao said on 22/Oct/11
Morse had slight of tendency wore 1.5" boots in film. With regular shoe he look 6'4.5, so 6'3 is bang it.

I think hes closer to 6'3

Yeah and with 6'2 Samuel L Jackson looked 6'3.
candymoon said on 17/Jan/11
I just recently met David, and I will say he is definitely 6"4. He is very tall, thin, but stocky....which levels out with his height! He did not have much of a heel on his boots that day, and I am 5"5 and was wearing 4 inch heeled boots, and I was only eye level with his chest! He did tower over everyone in the room, and not one man was taller than him. Very tall, and a gorgeous solidly built man! ;o)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/11

Maybe 192cm is closer Rob?

Definite 6'4'' for this guy. Always looked very tall. No downgrades needed.
Kim in California said on 5/Dec/10
I've met Hugh Laurie and he's definitely 6'2"-6'3ish"...Robert Leonard looks shorter to me than 5'11", I'd say 5' 10" (and I met him too...stood next to him in the elevator ride down into the parking garage.) So I figure David Morse is definitely 6'4" when you see him in the Tritter Arc on House.

Ed T. said on 21/Jul/08
I saw David Morse in the play " The Seafarer" , this past winter. He towered over the rest of the cast, including Ciaran Hinds, who is probably 6'0". I think 6'4" is correct for Morse.
Zerstoren said on 1/Jul/08
I'd say just below 6,3
scyahoo said on 28/Jun/08
i cant believe how there is still arguments over whether or not he is 6'4", there have been several witnesses attesting to his height. lol. didnt he play a basketball player in inside moves? if he was only 6'2" he would look like a shrimp next to his teammates.

True Viper. If Morse is 6'4" then so is Jimmy Smits.

Here - in reality the bottom green line shows closer to were glenn really would look if Morse was on same plane and if the camera was directly in the middle of the 2 subjects.
Ed said on 3/Jan/08
Morse is easily 6ft4! I'd like to see a pic of him with Liam neeson though, for the sake of comparison.

As for Shia LaBeouf going on and on about how big he is, it's probably because LaBeouf is only around 5ft9 tops. A 6ft4 man with boots on (like he wore in the movie Disturbia), would be hovering around 6ft5.5in.

Yeah, there's no doubt that this guy is 6'4". I think your being fooled by Glenn's proximity to the camera and Morse's relaxed posture.

glenn is a little closer because his head is slightly larger than Morse' head. If the cameraperson was 6ft it'd look different this shot.

Ed said on 11/Jun/07
Just saw Distubia and Morse looked huge in that movie. He dwarfed everyone! There wasn't a single person in the movie that didn't look tiny next to him. Also, like I said before he's gotten pretty built over the last few years. He's not skinny at all anymore. Just a big dude all around. He's 6ft4 no doubt, and he towered over the 5ft8.5 Carrie Ann Moss by 8 inches easy.

Whats funny is Morse would have an inch on Michal Clark Duncan barefoot.
Ed said on 22/Apr/07
If you watch Down in the Valley, Morse absolutely dwarfs Edward Norton who's at least 6ft. This is while Norton is wearing cowboy boots w/a 1.5 maybe more boost. Morse was a beast in that movie. I second what Patrick said, the guy used to be tall and skinny but has gotten pretty built as of late. He's definitely 6ft4, watch 16 Blocks as well where he dwarfs Bruce Willis.

He wore blocks on his feet?! where did you get that from? lol! Blocks made him a foot taller, is that what you're saying?! Like I said, you need to watch the film. Morse is 6'1 at the most (NOT 6'4). Hanks is 5'10 at the most. Duncan is 6'6! and NO! it's not because of blocks! AHA!

Editor Rob
Duncan himself said in USaToday chat:

"I was standing on a platform which was about a foot above ground, and they camouflaged it so well you can't even see it. I have a piece of it in my rec room downstairs. I could stand with my feet side by side, but once I started walking I had to be careful."

Now, go drink some Kia Ora, it will help to deflush your red face.

Kia said on 21/Apr/07
This is the most exaggerated piece of crap I've ever read. If anyone has watched "The Green Mile", David Morse is just 2 inches more than Tom Hanks, who is listed as 5'10. Morse would be 6'0-6'1 in that case. And how about the giant in the film, Michael Clarke Duncan who is listed as 6'6? If Morse is 6'4 and Michael is 6'6, does this picture make sense to you folks? There is a HELL OF A LOT more than just 2 inches. It's more like a foot difference! Michael's more like 7'1!! Click Here

David is not onlytall (of course 6'4 or more) but also built like a mountain; I know he was not that bulky in the 80ties but he "grew up" and his arms, his hands, his neck are those of a very well bult and strong man; He looks like an oak and ridiculizes his costars; a good old fashioned American actors in short!
