C at peak is arguable

Rob, which of these peak?
Would need to see a bit more of 80's Farina, but from what I have seen I think he lost some height by his last 10 years and looked taller in 80's...but above D? I wouldn't bet on it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/18
He never stood well though. Could look barely 6ft at times but I think he was a decent 6ft1...

In Crime Story he looked about 6'2. He was so tall that he towered over his own men. He was about 1 inch taller than Anthony John Dennison who played Ray Luca.

Also in Midnight Run

Rob, Farina edges out a young Billy Zane by fair amount in this Tv movie from 1989. He would have been 45.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/13
He was taller than Travolta in Get Shorty, when he would've been 51.

Rob, is it possible that he peaked at 6ft1.5?
[Editor Rob: would have to see early stuff when he was at his tallest to remind myself if he had lost much height by his late 50's]

Oh Jesus. Two great Italian-American actors dead in a month :(
RIP. Loved him in Get Shorty (with Gandolfini) and who can forget Snatch.
Will be sorely missed
"Dennis Farina height: 6ft 1.5in (187cm)". Similiar to Vinnie Jones in Snatch.

Very sorry to hear of his passing today (note to self: life's a game of knockout whist); looks a fraction taller than Nick Nolte here:

Try 186-187cm peak, Jake. He was 1in taller than John Travolta in Get Shorty

not under 5'11.5 possible 6ft
James said on 30/Jul/11
Can appear under this cause of his posture

I like him best as Cousin Avi in SNATCH. 6'1" is spot on for DF--I just watched SNATCH last night, and he was one of the taller cast members. The only principal actors who looked taller than him were Vinnie Jones and Benicio Del Toro--both of whom, I believe, stand at 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Apr/11
Rob is 187cm peak possible?
allen said on 31/Mar/11
Dennis trains at the same gym I do. He's over 6 ft for sure.

Yeah, he's taller than one would expect, he's almost the same size as Vinie Jones.
jake said on 8/Jan/11
6 ft 1.5 (187 cm) peak I think but today he is no more than 6 ft 0.5 in (184 cm) at almost 67.
Hugh 190cm said on 24/Jun/09
He's listed everywhere as 6ft1.5 with 2 6ft2 listings. 6ft1 at least for this guy rob.
Hugh 191cm said on 24/Jun/09
How about a peak height rob?
Hugh 190cm said on 13/Apr/09
Farina is probably taller than one would expect.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 14/Mar/09
Actually 6ft1 is perfect. Maybe closer to 6ft2 in his prime. He looked pretty tall in Midnight Run next to Robert DeNiro. He was also taller than 184cm Charles Grodin.
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 20/Feb/09
At best Farina looks 6ft there. But his posture is horrendous. With good posture I'd say he's closer to 6ft1. Okay maybe he's not quite 6ft1 these day. I'd say 184cm now and 186cm peak. Sounds fair.
Hugh said on 4/Feb/09
Actually he did look about 2 inches taller than Willis. Perhaps a strong 6ft1 in his prime.
TELLEM said on 10/Dec/08
ray barboni is 6'0.5
Hugh said on 17/Oct/08
I think he's 6ft1 or 6ft1.5.
Hugh said on 20/Sep/08
6ft1 seems correct. Definately not under 6ft.
Mike said on 17/May/08
Maybe somebody can find his mug shot and arrest report from his airport incident ?
Marcelo C. said on 7/Apr/08
Yerterday I watched a film where Farina looks half an inch or so shorter than 6
ed said on 19/Mar/08
"I saw Striking Distance and he seemed about 1 or 2 inches taller than Willis depending on the scene."
yeah that is on right now and Willis is 5.10.5 barefooted so that would put Farina in the 5-11 to 6 foot range
GSP said on 4/Mar/08
looks 5'11 max in pic
Lebensdorf said on 29/Feb/08
This site is accurate for the most part, but, every once in a while, Rob the Editor is simply not correct in his assessment. Case in point: Denis Farina.
I will not accept a height higher than 5'11.5'' for this fellow. He looks not a hair taller than this, neither in the movies nor in the above picture with Glenn.
Really, now. This is one of the least credible entries on this site, with all due respect. It
glenn said on 13/Nov/07
yup.that was him evanna.lol

Yeah Glenn, that was him in Snatch, he was hilarious:
"Have you got anything to declare?"
"Yes. Don't go to England!"
Anthony said on 12/Nov/07
Yes, he was in "Snatch".
glenn said on 12/Nov/07
i think i loved him in snatch? was that him?
Mike said on 12/Nov/07
Yeah Glenn hes in get shorty with travolta in 1995...they look same height is and travolta was 6 6'1 max, hes also in bruce willis strinking distance...not too many scenes where there up close upon one another...Glenn Farinas gotta be in his sixties most likely for age I think hes dropped an inch in heihgt...since he doesnt look 6'1 (editors height) with you, he look lighter in weihgt with alot more grey hair btw..lol....hes actually a decently good actor by the way..at least his comments/actions in his movies
Anonymous said on 11/Nov/07
yeah this is about right.
Marcelo C. said on 10/Nov/07
If Farina es 6
Anonymous said on 10/Nov/07
I would say 180 cm. How does he even remotely look 185???
glenn said on 10/Nov/07
really that tall huh?
Mike said on 9/Nov/07
Glenn I remember this guy from older films (1980's to 1990's) he looked solid 6'1 in most films, looks close to 6 feet with you
glenn said on 9/Nov/07
good work.lets spot out more landmarks and have more morons out there.its already flooded.
ras said on 8/Nov/07
This guy needs to be downgraded by an inch or so, could have been 6'1 when he was younger but now looks 6'0 or 5'11.75 with Glenn.
Lebensdorf said on 8/Nov/07
This is 55th Street and Fifth Avenue, on the West corner, by the Peninsula.
I recognize the Church.

OutBenchThis said on 7/Nov/07
looks close to 6ft 182cm maybe..
Danius said on 7/Nov/07
6'1? looks 5'11.5ish

D. Ray Morton said on 7/Nov/07
Yeah, he doesn't look over 6' here - he looks maybe 3"-3.5" taller than Glenn - unless he's slouching.
maximus thrax - :-) He looked over 6' in the film, next to another actor whose height is listed on this very site, is all I was saying. Never met met him and certainly never went out on any donut runs with him, so I'm not claiming any authority here.
Anonymous said on 7/Nov/07
Looks just 6ft to me..
maximus thrax said on 19/May/07
Ok moron number1 and moron number2 ...he is not over 6ft ...my grandfather was on the chicago police department with him..and before that the chicago city transit athority and his internal record says 5'11
dmeyer said on 27/Oct/06
he did look a lidl taller than hanks in saving private
D. Ray Morton said on 23/Jul/06
"Is this Moron Number One? Put Moron Number Two on the phone."
This guy rules. Just saw "Empire Falls" again - he definitely looks over 6' next to 5'7"-5'8" Helen Hunt.
