His stocky frame and stature probably makes him look shorter. 5ft7

Caught last season of Under the Dome recently and yeah I still would go with near 5ft 7 for him.

@184cm big hoss being taller is generally an advantage when fighting but it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll win. mike tysons not tall but he’s intimidating and a fierce fighter and has beaten opponents much taller and heavier than himself, so i can guarantee you wouldn’t be able to beat his face in regardless of your height advantage.

@184cm big hoss First of he's a big guy, there's definitely a lot of strength there that height doesn't account for. Second of all you're barely over 6ft, you're not exactly a giant.

The Breaking Bad/BCS cast is made up of a bunch of little guys. Hard to feel intimidated when I could beat their faces in.

Short but aint small. He is the typical the short but also the big dude

Why do bald people always seem taller than they actually are? lol I can’t be the only one thinking this, right?
OriginalAnon said on 28/Aug/20
I have no idea where people are getting 5'8'' and 5'9'' from! He is 5'7'' at the most. I think there's a good chance he could be 5'6.5" or 5'6.75" these days.

Seeing that you met Giancarlo in the past, is there also a possibility to stumble across Dean anytime soon?

Sacred said on 6/Nov/17
168-169 cm for me
Faza said on 25/Oct/17
Guessed him around 5ft7 watching breaking bad he could be a weak one but he is a pretty bulky guy might make him look shorter
S.J.H said on 11/Jul/17
He look from 167cm to 170cm. I did guess he is 168.5cm so 5'6.25
Giorgi said on 6/May/17
Rob, this guy also had a very memorable role in Total Recall.

I think 1.69 clearly
Nova176 said on 28/Dec/16
Lol zero chance Aaron Paul is 5ft8.5, he's 172 max

I'd wager Quezada is 5ft5.5-5ft6 range and Norris is near enough 5'7
Preston said on 21/Dec/16
He looks an inch and a half taller than Steve Gomez (played by Quezada) but are both listed as 1.7 m. He looks around 2 cm shorter than his wife Marie played by Betsy Brandt who is listed as 1.74-1.75 m. Jesse (Aaron Paul) is 1.74 m and looks an inch taller than him. Conclusion: He is 1.72-1.73 m, Steve is roughly 1.68-1.69m and Marie is 1.74-1.75m.

Rob, could a weak 5ft7 be closer?

Click Here

Here he is as a complete unknown in The Firm (1993). Pause at 1:26, standing face to face with Cruise and he's a clear 1in shorter
Editor Rob
you could argue a weaker 5ft 7 for him.
Peter175 said on 5/Nov/16
He's shorter than Jesse pinkman aka 172 Aaaron paul. I would guess 5ft6.5-7 is right for him
c-mo said on 9/Jun/16
great actor

he seems a little taller than 170cm to me . like 172cm or so . he just doesnt have the typical built/proportions of a 170cm man but then again on screen it might look a bit different and fool me
Dingus said on 24/Mar/16
I always thought he was in the 5'08.50"-5'09.00" height range because of his powerful build. On second look he appears about 5'06.50".
Paleman said on 23/Mar/16
He doesn't look under 5'7".
Sam said on 5/Jun/15
I think Norris does pass as 5'7", Steven Michael Quezada is probably around 5'5.75"-5'6".
mande2013 said on 16/Apr/15
Norris-169cms (always looks 'normal short' on Breaking Bad, but NEVER 'weak average')
Esposito-171 cms
Paul-172 cms
Quezada-165 cms (I can't imagine him being under 5'5)
lelman said on 15/Apr/15
Yeah he looks a good 3-4 inches below Bryan Cranston. 5'7" range for sure.
Ali said on 16/Nov/14
No more than 5'6 in my opinion.
Joe said on 7/Nov/14
S02e11 of under the dome, 37:24, he looks about 1 inch taller 5'7 listed Sherry Stringfield, dean having the footwear advantage, 5'7 if shes not lying...
Pete said on 9/May/14
I'd give him no more than 5'6.5"
Laura said on 17/Dec/13
I think he's about 167cm
Zach said on 14/Nov/13
Norris is definitely taller than the Steve Gomez guy. Though at end of season 5 he started wearing hefty footwear.
Patrick 1.75.5m said on 13/Nov/13
Remember me to Michael Chikilis as Vic Mackey in The Shield.
yalo said on 28/Oct/13
i wud say 5'7 exactly looks it in breaking bad
mjd said on 26/Oct/13
Yeye. I disagree. 5-6 cm's is like 2 inches. Norris IS taller than Michael Quezada, but it looks to me to be no more than an inch, possibly an inch and a half.
yeye said on 19/Oct/13
Interestingly enough he and Steven Michael Quezada (who plays steven gomez) are both listed as 5'7 on other pages.

Althought quite transparently Norris has 5-6 cm on quezada.

My call is Norris at 171 cm and Quezada at 165.
Trent said on 22/Sep/13
He always looks in the 5-7 to 5-8 range on Breaking Bad.

And consistently 2-3" shorter than 5'10.5" Bryan Cranston in their scenes together.
JAM said on 19/Aug/13
How the heck did you stand next to him on set? Also, 5'7 sounds right to me because him and Aaron Paul in many pics stand almost at the exact same height.
abm said on 30/May/13
I'm 5"6 and I stood next to him on the set of Under The Dome. We we're eye to eye.
rob89 said on 25/Feb/13
I guessed 5'7"-5'8" range in Breaking Bad, didn't look THAT short to me. But i guess his bulkyness might make him seem even shorter than he is to some.
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Jan/13
He does look a bit shorter than Norris, i'd say 5'6 range
Adamz said on 17/Jan/13
How tall is his partner in Breaking bad, Steve Gomez? Played by Steven Michael Quezada.
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Jan/13
Shredder, he did look at least an inch shorter than Betsy Brandt (she with ballerina and he with quite thick shoes, more than one inch). Now, Betsy Brandt did claim "just shy of 5'9", so it's hard to believe he's anything over 5'7. He can look the same of Aaron Paul in a lot of photos but Paul is likely a weak 5'8.
