Selby was surely over 6'3'' peak. One maybe two inches on Richard Jordan, and the top of 5'6'' Anne Archer's head was way down at his shoulder level in Raise the Titanic during a scene where they are full length walking together in a newsroom and corridor. I think he downplayed his height because his predatory looking facial features were already a strike against him for nuanced roles.

Taller than Lorenzo Lamas (still 186-187cm, IMO)

When Selby made the quoted 6' 2" comment he was in his twenties and possibly thought admitting that he was 6' 3" (or even taller) may not have been advantageous in securing future roles. Similar to what Rock Hudson did to downplay his height in the late 1940's when he was a struggling actor.

Agree with Gonzalo, he was at least 6' 3" in his prime. Sometimes with other tall actors he appeared closer to 6' 3.5".

He was clearly taller than Lorenzo Lamas in Falcon Crest, about two inches. I don´t see Selby under 1`91

Yes he looks 6'2-6'2.5 nowadays but still he's taller azage about 70 than relatively young Lorenzo Lamas....if he stands straight.
Look at the Falcon Crest Reuinion photo:

C'mon guys....he is 74 years old now, he shrunk maybe a few centimetre. But I think he was at peak about 6'3....
