Peak height was 5ft 9 ½ (176.5 cm)
American actor, best known for playing Detective Andy Sipowicz on NYPD Blue. I read one article where it mentioned he was 200lbs and a shade over 5ft 10.

Cannot see how this guy was ever over 174-175 tops. Has the classic look of your stocky 5' 8.5 inch guy. Probably down to 173 nowadays. Bruce Willis looked a good 3' taller than him in DH2.

Don't forget Hill Street Blues too, Rob!

Looks right at his listed height, 5ft 10in, and more like 225-230 lbs. I saw him in an airport in Fort Myers, Fl. I shook hands with him, he was a nice guy. I am 5ft 11.5in, and I was noticeably taller.

It's a handy tool to look at publicity photos from NYPD Blue of all of the cast standing around together looking moody like this one: Click Here
Compare him to the other people. 5ft10 really doesn't seem that unrealistic if Gooselaar is about 6ft and Henry Simmons is 6ft4

Dude, he cannot be 5'10''.
More like 5'4''. In Die Hard 2, he was at least half a foot shorter than Bruce Willis.

Dennis Franz looks 5'10" on NYPD Blue
Lynn said on 22/Dec/07
Clearly 5'8" max

Franz did lose a lot of weight. During the last couple of seasons of NYPD Blue he is noticeably slimmer than what he was before, I think 200lb sounds right. But if you are looking at older episodes of NYPD Blue he was fatter and looked about 230-240lb.

Well, there's your inaccuracy right there, if anyone believes he was a only a shade over 200 lbs...

My brother stod one meter in front of him, he said no more than 5'9''. Do you really think he looks 5'10'' Rob?
[Editor Rob: he could have shrunk some, or just been not 5ft 10.
there are sometimes rare individuals who permanently carry themselves with sunken shoulders, although whether he's one of them...]

Franz needs to be downgraded to 5'9".

SEEEEE????? Leung and I both agree, so that makes it official...
Leung said on 21/Nov/07
I have to agree with sf, Schroeder is taller than Franz.
sf said on 20/Nov/07
I find this interesting, as Ricky Schroeder was clearly taller than Dennis Franz in every episode of NYPD Blue, yet he is listed as 5'9" and 3/4 on his page.

Dennis Franz is not 5'10." Look at him on Hill Street Blues - not a lot of those actors were close to 6' and he was shorter than most. I'd say 5'8" - maybe 175cm tops.

. Dennis Franz and Chuck Norris and they're exactly the same height. I wonder if this means that perhaps Dennis is a bit less than 5'10" and Chuck a bit more than 5'8.5"?

Cool. We have a Dennis Franz page. Glenn, have you met Dennis?
