Quaid did generally look like a 6ft guy in the 80's-90's...

I did at one point believe the 6ft2 reports!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/23
Rob, between Baldwin and Quaid peak who do you think measured taller?

I was watching Great Balls of Fire and they appeared to edge each other out in scenes...
Editor Rob
Yeah, they are close and could be a toss up in reality who measures nearer 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/23
Jake, that's an interesting one.....I'd have gone with Paxton. Overall, he held up way better next to 6ft2+ guys than Quaid did even 30 years ago!

I'd definitely at least give Bill the same peak as Dennis
Slim1.75m said on 27/Aug/23
@Rob could Quaid be 1.79 now
Editor Rob
If you browser recent photos of Dennis, at times he is looking that range
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 5/Jun/23
Rob, at peak, who do you think was taller: Quaid or Bill Paxton?
Editor Rob
Quaid I've given a little more, but I can see why folk would argue Paxton could be 5ft 11.75 peak too.
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 8/Feb/23
He looked at least 182 cm in Undercover Blues, it must be said.
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 12/Oct/22
Just watched Suspect (1987) - which is a highly enjoyable film - and Quaid did appear around 6ft for sure. 182-183 cm looked his range in that one.
Slim1.75m said on 10/Oct/22
Rob between Dennis Quaid & Christian Bale who has the best chance of being the full comfortable 6'0.
Editor Rob
Might have went with Bale at first, from the 2000's. Now, has he actually lost a fraction by late 40's? It's debatable...I know he's had some back injuries and that can always lead to small fractional loss.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Oct/22
berta, I’m not sure I’d give Baldwin the edge over Quaid. Very hard to tell them sort in Great Balls of Fire, I’m all in for Alec being a solid 182cm also but looking back over Dennis’s career, he generally did look like a 6ft guy. This peak is the lowest I’d argue.

Both men are struggling with 5ft11 today though
berta said on 27/Sep/22
Still think this is to high for his peak. An maybe even his current. If one of him and baldwin was talle rthen it was baldwin. but i believe baldwin could have beeen 182,5 and not only 181,5 as he is listed at peak here. I would say baldwin had 1 cm on him. Baldwin 182,5 and Dennis 181,5 peak. Today baldwin 180,5 and Dennis 179 flat. 2,5 cm loss and he is 68 years old. I guess he have lost a fraction more than what he should have at his age.
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 4/Aug/22
QM6'1.5"QM - agreed. To me he was a classic 5ft 11½ guy. 181.6 cm peak - it seems to be the best fit, Rob - looking at it all!
QM6'1.5"QM said on 23/Jul/22
He was 2.5inches shorter than Matthew Fox in "Vantage point", 2008.

Peak - 5'11.25 or 5'11.5"!
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 7/Jul/22
5ft 11.5 seems like the best compromise. Him and Gyllenhaal kook close and he was the same height as Baldwin.
berta said on 6/Jun/22
baldwin was clearly 1 cm taller. this guy 181,5 peak and baldwin 182,5
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 6/May/22
Pretty sure him and Baldwin were virtually the exact same height!
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 17/Apr/22
Rob, maybe a solid 5ft 11½ is good as a peak then? I do think he was around 182. Looked very close to William Fichtner in height. Maybe a hair less.
Editor Rob
that figure might turn out to be ideal.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 12/Apr/22
He looked taller than R. Lee Ermey in Switchback! And looked fairly tall in general.

He did however stand eye-to-eye with Fichtner in that film too, or if anything may havr beeb edged slightly. So, 5ft 11.5in minimum, I'd say. Have you seen that film, Rob?

180 cm Peak
179 cm today
Go boy said on 4/Mar/22
Looks at this pic with 182cm hanks Rob . Quaid looks 181cm in this pic . he was six foot with shoes in his prime .but never six foot flat .Click Here
Editor Rob
The angle does help Tom there, I don't think Quaid was as short as 5ft 11 in his peak 80's and early 90's years...but could he have been only 5ft 11.25-11.5?
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 1/Mar/22
Absolutely no less than than 182 cm at peak. He appeared tall in Innerspace. Great flick too, seen it, Rob?
Editor Rob
Yes it was a good 80's film.
Tall Sam said on 27/Feb/22
Lol big Michael Madsen looks like he might be the notion to eat Costner and Quaid there. You could argue maybe 5’11” there for Quaid from that photo alone but think he’s got a position disadvantage.
Go boy said on 26/Feb/22
In this pic in 1994 Quaid was two inches shorter then Costner .any chance Quaid was 181 or 180 cm in his peak Click Here
Go boy said on 20/Feb/22
Rob in tv workaholic Topher and Dennis are eye level yet you claim Topher is shorter .I think either dennis a downgrade or vice versa
Editor Rob
They could be identical, 5ft 10.5 or 10.75.
NATHAN j said on 17/Jan/22
He has a place in MT , came to Borders where I was working in Bozeman. I'm 5'11", he was shorter than me. Looked like 5'9" or 10"
Editor Rob
Interesting the last commenter thought he might be 6ft standing tall, yet you seen him at 5ft 9-10!
Coast said on 28/Nov/21
Plus he slouches a lot, once he stood up straight he was 6ft tall, but Dennis quad doesn’t have a good posture at all. He was only that tall when he stood up straight. He looks shorter cause he slouches a lot in real life. He can look 5’10 then when he stands up straight easily 6ft
Coast said on 28/Nov/21
Ok Rob, sorry if I sound mean I apologize in advance, but there is no way he is under 6ft tall. I was in the airport and he was right behind me in line for about 20 minutes and I got a picture with him. This was last year. I’m a strong 5 10 some of my friends think I’m 6ft which I’m not. anyways, I was wearing boots that made me close to 6ft tall. He was literally wearing flats shoes and was still taller then me. I’m sorry but this listing is totally wrong. I apologize if I’m rude Rob, sorry for that. But I literally stood right next to him for 20 minutes in line and went on the same plane as him. It was in a airport in Kodiak Alaska to anchorage Alaska. He is still 6ft tall without a doubt. You need to upgrade his height Rob?
berta said on 21/Oct/21
its pretty strange that he have lost this mutch height when he is in the best shape a guy his age can ever be, still have a six pack. I thought he was 6 footer yhears back but i remmeber in movies alredy 10-13 years back he could look 5´11 and i dont think he really had lost any height by then. I think he was legit 181 peak and today he can look 178-179 alot but i guess if he stood tall maybe he could still measure a little over 179 cm.
Nigel Tufnel said on 21/Jul/21
If his son Jack is 6' 1" then he is 5'9" given a photo of them side by side.

Rampage, Ryan McPartlin was once listed at 6'2.75" on yahoo and google for a long time before any changes corrected from 6'4-6'4 1/2. Hancock def was at least 6'1.75" or 6'2.

Yeah and oddly Quaid used to get reported as 6ft2...Hancock clearly has a couple of inches at least on him. Without a doubt he's a 6ft2 guy, can look even taller than it in some photos. I hope he gets page soon, brilliant director...

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jan/21
Hancock was listed 6ft on the web but is taller than Quaid, Hanks and Costner (posted photos on Hanks page). He's definitely one of the rare underlisted ones, 6ft2 wouldn't surprise me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/20
I’m starting to believe that Dennis and Randy are half-brothers or one was adopted. They could not be more physically dissimilar. It’d be interesting to know how tall their parents were. You’d expect Dennis to be at least 2-3in taller than what he is, if not similar to Randy!
berta said on 21/Nov/20
i think this is a good update. he often looked like a almost 6 foot guy. and today can really look 178-179 sometimes. 182 peak and 179-180 today.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Nov/20
His peak height of 6'0 previously makes me wonder John Lee Hancock peak was 6'2.25". The 1/4 solve what i thought. John is 6'2 peak and Dennis 5'11 3/4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/20
I thought in Breaking Away he could easily pull off 6ft range but then in something like Great Balls of Fire or Wyatt Earp not so much. More than 1in between him and Costner
Johnny 181-182 cm said on 14/Oct/20
Quaid can sometimes look 5ft 10 flat these days.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/20
He could look a decent 6ft other times
Editor Rob
Here's a btc of that scene with Skrein and Evans...really struggling to look near 5ft 11 there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/20
Is he really as low as 179cm?

I agree with his peak though
Editor Rob
yeah he might be that now.
Almost 180cm guy said on 8/Oct/20
Today Quaid might look like a weak 5ft 11. Though I wonder when he might have lost his first fraction. I found two photos of Quaid with Samuel L. Jackson from 2004: Click Here Click Here
Samuel looked a good 2.5 inches taller than Dennis back then, even if Samuel really was 6ft 2.25 Quaid looked no more than 5ft 11.75 at the time. Rob, what do you think his height was when he was 50 and do you still see 6ft 2.25 chance for Samuel?
Editor Rob
Quaid's peak is arguably weak 6ft and an inch lost, in fact I recently skimmed through Midway and there's a scene in which Luke Evans looks well over an inch taller than him...looked barely 179 in fact.
Sinclair said on 19/Aug/20
I thought Quaid looked a weak 6 footer in The Big Easy. I think 5’11.75” is most realistic for Quaid’s peak but I wouldn’t argue with 5’11.5”.
Hulk.23 said on 4/Aug/20
He was never a six footer in my opinion. In 2003 he looked as tall as Jake Gyllenhall who’s a strong 5’11/180cm. I think he was in the 5’11 range
VitoCheng said on 28/Jul/20
Is 5'10"75 possible?
current: between 5'10"75~5'11"25
Editor Rob
5ft 11 flat today is a real possibility.
Danimal 176.7cm said on 1/Jul/20
With Marc Maron. Dennis isn't 5'11 1/4" anymore today. More like 5'10" at best: Click Here
Yang (5 footer 8, 173, Aries) said on 20/May/20
Peak height is Weak 6footer during his 30s and 40s.
Cureent is Weak 5ft 11 as of 2020s in his 60s.
Interesting fact about him is that his DOB is few days after world famous rich Hong Kong born actor Jackie Chan from April 7, 1954. What a coincidence... His Bday is few days before mine on April 11th. With different ethnicity and different height as he is definitely taller than me and Jackie Chan...
Charles D Spar said on 29/Apr/20
Rob, out of Quaid, Baldwin and William Fichtner peak who do bet on measuring tallest?
Editor Rob
10 years ago I might have said Fichtner, but now I'm not so sure!

Rob, I think you've nailed it...!
Charles D Spar said on 23/Apr/20
Now I could've sworn, watching the 1990 film, "come see the paradise", that 5'11" (listed here) colm meaney actually appeared a tad taller than Quaid? Now the interesting thing about that is, watching old episodes of "star trek TNG", meaney appears very close to the same height as 5'9" (again, listed here) Patrick Stewart? Strange?

CDS said on 28/Nov/19
@junior Hernandez: that's true. But really, I think they tend to be more honest with directors' heights than actors, who have a physical "image" to maintain. Quaid at a peak height of only 5'10" seems hard to swallow, but I wouldn't rule it out completely. He would hardly be the 1st 5'10" guy to claim 6'...
Nik Ashton said on 1/Nov/19
He’s somewhat tall!
CDS said on 26/Oct/19
Junior hernandez's pics below with, 6' director john lee Hancock, say it all. Quaid was never a solid 6'. 5'11" peak max, 6' in shoes. Just seen him on the 3rd season of the Amazon series, "goliath", more like 5'10" today...
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Nov/18
If he lost 2cm i supposed his big brother Randy would have lost the same amount too. But maybe he was more like 182cm peak and 180cm now. His son Jack look near 185cm.
Mark Harrison said on 16/Nov/18
Was 5'11" at peak, now he's 5'10".
Allie said on 2/Aug/18
How tall is his son Jack Quaid? Google says 6’2 but not sure. At age 20 he looked shorter then Liam Hemsworth.
Editor Rob
He could be over 6ft 1

CDS said on 13/Jul/18
The poster below is right. 5'11" peak height, 5'11.5" absolute max. Today, from 5'10" to 5'10.5". See "movie 43", from 2014, he looks ever so barely taller than 5'9" Greg kinnear. Now flashback to the 2000 HBO film, "dinner with friends" , when he's got about 2 inches on his same costar, Greg kinnear...
berta said on 15/Jun/18
rob he needs a downgrade. He was never as tall as a guy like nick nolte aat peak. this guy could have been 1,5 cm shorter. i think 182 peak no more
berta said on 26/Apr/18
peak average guess coudl be a little low and current to. he was never a 6 footer.( i think) but i dont believe anyting under 5`11 1/2 peak. today 180 flat
LLcruize said on 15/Apr/18
Definitely can see peak of 5'11 and today 5'10

Quaid is 5'10" now.
berta said on 23/Jul/17
Rob i really think you should take another lok at this guy. Peak could have been 183 but i go with strong 182 guy. Today he looks 180-181 cm. i mean 184 channing tatum was 2-3 cm taller 7 years ago. That means he was 181,5 back then and today i believe 181. with a chanse of falling little under than.
Editor Rob
yeah, today he does look closer to 5ft 11-11.25 a lot of the time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/17
Rob, did he start off here at 6ft1?

I don't know exactly, but he was on 6ft for a very long time.

Classic 182cm when he was young. I think Quaid never was more. Today I see a solid 180cm. He has good look this characteristic help very much.
Johnny said on 18/Apr/17

Looked a decent 6ft guy in the 80's and could pass for 184cm at times.

rob please search on "dennis quaid +paul bettany" on google and look at them on the premiere at legion. Paul who is at best 192 but could be 191 is more than 10 cm taller. i really dont think quad was more than at most 182 and today maybe not even over 180. Even channin tatum 183-184 was atleast 3 cm taller.
berta said on 29/Jan/17
182 peak and 181 today
James said on 2/Jan/17
Quaid is 5'11".

yeah same hear william fichtner was 1 cm taller than quad at worst the same height i tink this guy was just under 6 feet and william 6 feet
Arch Stanton said on 16/Dec/16
Mmm, I thought William Fichtner looked a bit taller in Switchback, he made Quaid look 5 ft 11 if he is 5'11.75.

i think he was 182 peak and today he is 181 ore 180

Dmeyer said on 7/Aug/16
Peak not less than 182cm as he looked taller than me by à litle but hé had à 1,8in style i had 1,5in one day And the other 1,2in so he had 0,3-0,6in more shoes than me , grant had à 1,1in type i was à haïr taller than grant
Dmeyer said on 6/Aug/16
I met grant And Quaid the same day Quaid looked 6 ft 0,5in but had à big 1,75-2in boots so near to 6 ft 11 years back, And grant looked exactly 5'11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/16
I'd at the very least move Caviezel to 186cm
Andrea said on 26/May/16
I saw that picture too and even considering he has less footwear i can't see him any less than 4 good cms shorter than Jim! It's funny because you never look that "short" mext to people you meet and list at 5'10, though... Maybe 5'11.5 at peak isn't impossible but there's noway he was only an inch shorter than Jim, put it that way...
Andrea said on 26/May/16
Weak 6'???? Come on, even a blind man would see more than just 1.5 inches there... He does look minimum 2 good inches shorter there...
Editor Rob
Here with less footwear and possibly a cm less posture I wouldn't have thought he was less than a weak 6ft, 5ft 11.5 range is certainly arguable for him.

In American Dreamz with Hugh Grant I'm not sure he was the same height, he looked taller than Hugh who typically looks 5ft 11.
Andrea said on 25/May/16
Rob, i don't really know this guy but was he really a 6' guy at peak???
Look at him with Jim (back in 2000, so still at his peak): Click Here
If he really was this tall, Jim can definitely look 6'2-6'2.5 with him but again Jim himself did claim 6'1... Always a chance Jim was or still is a hair over 6'1, like 186, but that still doesn't explain this listing, not even close...
Editor Rob
he can look a weak 6ft range there, maybe 5ft 11.5...that's never impossible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/16
182-183cm peak, Rob?
Editor Rob
somewhere around this zone...I do think he can look shorter nowadays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/16
He can look just 5ft11 today.
berta said on 22/Mar/16
No way he is only 2 cm shorter than kevin Costner peak ore 1 cm shorter than channing taum. He is in extremely good shape so 1 cm imax what he have lost. I would say a max 182 peak but probably 181. And his brother 195. Always looked atleast 2 cm taller than Chevy chase who was 192-93
berta said on 26/Feb/16
if channing Tatum is 184 then Quaid is no taller than 181
Dmeyer said on 17/Feb/16
Hé was about 1in taller than me but had 0,6in more shoes so was still about 6ft 11 years back
dmeyer said on 23/Oct/15
Was 182cm 10 years back when i met him he looked 6ft but had 0.6in more shoes so solid5'11.5
Mike said on 12/Oct/15
Around 180-181 now.
S.J.H said on 24/Sep/15
I did think he was still close to 6'0 than 5'11.5

5ft 11 180 cm nowadays looks appropriate.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 0.25in (184cm)"
"Dennis Quaid's height is 5ft 11.75in (182cm)"

I think current height at 5'11"(180cms) and peak height at 5'11.5"(182cms) is much more realistic than your guess, actually...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Mar/15
Steve Weber is 184cm
CDS said on 11/Mar/15
That 6-ft-2 listing is especially absurd for him, and fellow actor Steven Weber, since I don't put either of these guys even at 6 foot! LOL 5'11" for both. Denzel and Travolta, on the other hand, actually can pull off 6'2" since they are the real deal 6-ft I'd say (or at least were in their prime-??).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/15
Plenty of 6ft actors listed at 6ft2. Not just Quaid. Travolta is still listed everywhere at that mark. I've seen a couple for Denzel Washington
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Feb/15
181-182cm today
183-184cm peak

Look at him next to Uma Thurman (5'11-11.25")... In several pictures he does look shorter.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Feb/15
181cm today, Rob?

I agree with many on here that Quaid can struggle with even 5ft11 at times now.
S.J.H said on 1/Feb/15
I did give Dennis Quaid an add on 0.25 at 5'11.75 which he don't look much lose in height although he was over 60 of age
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/14
The 6ft2 listings still give me the giggles.
Judd said on 27/Oct/14
today he does look 5'10.5-75" next to gerard butler (strong 6'1"). he's not old so i doubt he lost 1,25" since his youth...5'11-11.5" as peak height fits him
Luke said on 12/May/14
Saw him in a restaurant in London. A year ago I think. He was there with his family. Just gave me the impression of a nice chap, normal height, normal family. Could be anything between 5.9-5.11. His son is quite tall and still growing.
bodwaya said on 3/May/14
I was a guy back in the Eighties who was one movie away from a huge career, which at that time didn't happen. In the Nineties, I worked a lot, but it was kind of, 'get out there and dig and find things.' Then I guess The Rookie and Far From Heaven were referred to as my comeback. I look around and a lot of the people I started in the business with, I have no clue where they are right now. So much of it has to do with luck and I have been extremely lucky, but a large part of it is also just hanging in there. this quote proves that he never became a big star he even states it himself

Here is Dennis and his son Jack whose mother is Meg Ryan.

Dennis has said several times (letterman) that Jack was 6-2. Looking at these pics, Dennis cannot be more than 5-11.
K said on 13/Mar/14
I've seen him several times in a crowded room in the 90's looking over a see of heads and when standing next to him the angle of my neck was way more tilted than my 6' husband. He may have lost height but then 6'2.
bodwaya said on 30/Jan/14
dennis quaid is considered the poor mans harrison ford. people everywhere impersonate billy bob in sling blade that proves he has at least one iconic perfromance can anyone name one classic film dennis quaid did that people quote and talk about , eres a reasons hes called the poor harison ford
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jan/14
Absolutely Jake but I was just responding to Yaspaa's comment that Quaid is a more successful actor than Billy Bob, which is not true. Quaid hasn't been in a decent movie in at least 10 years.

He's taller than Billy Bob, I'll give him that!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 0.25in (184cm)"
"Dennis Quaid's height is 5ft 11.75in (182cm)"
Hank said on 10/Dec/13
Anyone see the awful Movie 43? Quaid was exactly the same height as 5'9" Greg Kinnear.
stadawg said on 7/Dec/13
I am 6'2" and I he and I passed each other at a restaurant in Austin and I dwarfed him. No way he is 6'.
thc said on 1/Sep/13
looks atleast 5'11 at peak.
true said on 1/Aug/13
he looks 5'10 next to anna sophia in soul surfer
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/13
In the 80s and 90s when he weighed almost nothing, he could sometimes look near 6ft1.
Never understood the 6ft2 claims though. But having said that, they're aren't any pictures roaming around of him and his brother. It be interesting to see how much shorter he'd look.

@Yaspaa: eh Billy Bob Thornton has an Academy Award under belt. Does Quaid?
Yaspaa said on 25/Jul/13
He's more successful than Billy Bob. There's a difference.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/13
Sorry, Rob.

Anyway could 184cm peak for Quaid be possible?
Editor Rob
doubt he was over 6 foot, he can look 5ft 11 range now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/13
Randy Quaid has more talent in one finger than pretty boy Dennis has in his entire body. The elder Quaid had an Oscar nomination under his belt within a year of moving to Hollywood.
Editor Rob
remember we have to try to refrain from insulting celebs on here, stick with the height and it makes it simpler for me.
ajcf1995 said on 4/Jul/13
barely taller than topher grace in In Good Company.
bodwaya said on 2/Jul/13
billy bob is older then brad pitt how can he be a young brad pitt. I seen all the movies u mentioned. While some of i liked his peformances in the them were the worse part of the movie. He was upstaged by better costars like edward norton ,cruise and freeman.But rampage at least we agree on one thing we both think quaid sucks as an actor
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/13
bodwaya, a lot of his pre-Millenium stuff is brilliant. E.g. 12 Monkeys, Se7en, Fight Club, Interview With The Vampire etc. Back then I would definitely have called him a good actor with a lot of promise

I should've said a 'young' Brad Pitt. But I'll definitely agree that in rhe last 10 years he's gone downhill.
bodwaya said on 27/Jun/13
lol iam on the floor laughing did u mention him in the same breath as brad pitt. The only thing they have in common is they both date jolie. Brad pitt is a bad actor. Billy bob acts circles around him. Leo on the other hand is good actor.Billy bob was amzing in man who wanst alamo he acts circles around quaid
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/13
Billy Bob Thornton is just an underrated talent. I put him in the same boat as guys like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. The public's obsession with their personal lives has veered a lot of attention away from their acting abilities. Granted, BBT isn't in the glossy mags week in, week out.
bodwaya said on 24/Jun/13
true i read costars found him difficult john goodman said on late the set of everybods all american. Plus quad has had more flops then any actor in the world. Critics rank him among the worst while billy bob always gets rave reviews even in crappy movies
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/13
Quaid is pretty stuck up aswell. But besides that, I think he might've been 183-184cm
bodwaya said on 10/Jun/13
yaspaa yes they know billy bobs has classic like sling blade. He has 2 oscar noms. Billy bob has more sucesss in lead roles then quaid do how does that make quaid a leading man more then billy bob. Ask any one on the street who quaid they will give u a blank stare. But u ask them about billy they will know .if u do the research u will know bill bobs movies gross more then quaid
Yaspaa said on 24/May/13
More people certainly do not know Billy Bob more than Quaid, that's ridiculous. Quaid is a leading man while Billy is much more suited to co-acting. Plus, Quaid has the most hilarious smirk I've ever seen.
bodwaya said on 30/Jan/13
you know who else is a good texas actor tommy lee jones he blows billy bob and quaid away. ranking for bext texas actor in order would be tommy lee jones ,billy bbo and woody
bodwaya said on 23/Jan/13
billy bob is good actor quaid is a bad acotor he had more flops then billy bob. quaid dosent have 1 classic movie. Hes been acting fore more than 30 years and he has yet to be a star pathteic
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jan/13
Quaid's acting is mediocre...he's survived most of his career on good looks to be honest.
Billy Bob Thornton is just underrated...
bodwaya said on 6/Dec/12
quaid was an a lister billy bob throton has less flops 2 oscar noms quaid has no classic movies. more people know who billy bob is then quaid.
bodwaya said on 5/Dec/12
rob who do u think is a better actor quaid or billy bob and who do u think had less flops in his career( i know this is irreverent to the website but i want to know) i personaly thik qauid sucks and bob is better
Editor Rob
I've seen a lot of Quaid movies, I think he's a decent actor. So is Billy Bob, I don't know if I prefer one over the other.
Lmeister said on 30/Nov/12
Here with 5ft7 Michael Chiklis. In the second pic he is hunching a bit. Nevertheless I'd give him 5ft9.5-5ft10.25. Maybe 6ft shoes on in his youth.

in day of phpneix he wasnt much shorter then 6 foot 2 hugh laurie

He is not 5 foot 9. Once i heard he was listed as 6 foot 1. 182cm is right on.
no hater said on 11/Sep/12
It seems people or possible fans really never know the facts on actors. We love to speculate about their personal, physical or professional statis. How sad that we feel more important by making negative statements "movie stars".
bodwaya said on 11/Sep/12
but quaid is only 1 inch shorter then 6 foot 1 costner in that western movie they made. plus he towers 5 foot 8 helen hunt in soul surfer
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/12
Jonas, since when is only 6"0 slightly shorter than 6"2? That's 2in!
bodwaya said on 8/Aug/12
in the right stuff he was eye level with 6 foot scott glenn. He is bang on 6 foot .

6'0 is spot on. Slightly shorter than 6'2 Forest Whitaker

Uhm, genetics play in you know...
LAN Jiao said on 22/Oct/11
Dennis Quaid atually look 6-7cm shorter than Matthew Fox on michael post consider quaid is nearer camera than fox. Maybe 5'11.25 nowadays
LAN Jiao said on 17/Oct/11
Kent , i had a friend legit6'3 whose dad 5'7 mum 5'6 and 2 brothers was 5'9-5'10. he is 5-6inch on 2 flesh n blood brothers. it happens..
Kent said on 16/Oct/11
The Quaid brothers (Dennis and Randy) must have a different parent in their mix. I can't imagine two full-blooded brothers having almost 5 inches of difference between their heights.
Shaun said on 14/Oct/11
To me he always looked very similar to Harrison Ford in height and build.
Josh B said on 2/Oct/11
Hey Rob, what made you think he's lost enough height to have both a peak and current height listing?
Editor Rob
today I think he looks this height, whether he really has lost half inch is still debatable but I will leave his 6ft peak claim because it's possible.
jake said on 8/Sep/11
57 actually and yes he is.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Aug/11
Yep, just under 6ft. No peak height needed though. He's 56 and is in very good shape
TruebloodFan said on 12/Aug/11
@Denny says on 24/Apr/11
I use to be Dennis Quaid's room mate, while living in Austin Texas (circa 1976). I am (or at the time) 5'10 3/4". Mr. Quaid was at least an inch shorter than me. If not, more!

maybe some other Dennis Quaid. not this one :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/11
Rob, would 5ft11 or 5ft11.5 be closer?

Dennis Quaid getting owned by Fox and Whitaker in those pictures. That is definitely more than 2in.
Editor Rob
half inch under six is probably nearer today

TruebloodFan said on 27/Jun/11
6' peak. sure looked it in 'The Right Stuff'. he was easily 5'11(or fractions more) in 'The Day After Tomorrow' aged 50.
Dmeyer said on 25/Jun/11
In person apeared 184 cm but had a 2 in cowboy than give 1.8 in so 5 ft 11.75 was right not a full 6 ft now but close at worst 5'11.5
jude said on 30/May/11
Dennis is humped backed as he's gotten older so he's 57 now I'd say 5'9 would be accurate.

Vegas Baby said on 16/Apr/11
At the blackjack table at the Wynn with him. I am 5'8" and he looked exactly my height. His legs looked as big as my arms though. He weighed about 155 lbs maximum.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/11
He'd probably be a fraction over 6ft out of bed
Michael said on 10/Mar/11
I feel he shrinked for the past couple of years. I suppose he's around 5'10" to 5'11" these days. In his prime he does look 6'.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/11
Pretty sure he's claimed 6"1 aswell Rob
Editor Rob said on 14/Feb/11
Dennis' own claim is 6 foot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/11
6"0 is shoes he's 185-186cm
Lenad said on 15/Jan/11
6'0-ish peak
Shaun said on 2/Jan/11
Just goes to show that there is much variation in genetics. His brother was is pushing 6'5"!! I believe Quaid looked similar in height and frame to Harrison Ford so I could buy 6'0.5" peak. Definately not anywhere near 6'2" though.
Mr. R said on 30/Nov/10
Ok, someone other than Rob, explain to me how to post a pic or video. Rob has explained it to me several times and I only get to tinyurl, and can't get past it. I will prove that Dennis Quaid is just below 5-11, and I will post my long promised Eric Roberts pics. Somebody help me please!
Bon said on 30/Nov/10
In 'Great Balls of Fire' he looked 5'10-5'11 to me.
182 is maximum I can buy at his peak.
James said on 29/Nov/10
i'd say 5'11.5 today for sure 6'0 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/10
He's still in great shape. In fact he looks fairly ripped.

So maybe he's still around 6"0?
James said on 7/Nov/10
Defnintly a legit 6'0 guy at his peak. the 6'2 listings are funny though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/10
Can look 182cm a maybe so James.
James said on 26/Oct/10
5'11 1/2 today?
Rampage-Clover said on 26/Oct/10
Can look 5"11(180cm) a lot nowadays though
Hugh 190cm said on 12/Jun/09
Quaid looked 185-186cm in Parent Trap but is really scraping tha 6ft mark nowadays.
Hugh 190cm said on 28/May/09
He did look at least 6ft1 in Parent Trap.
Hugh 190cm said on 17/May/09
You sure you're 6ft1 Mr. Quaid? No offence or anything, you're a great actor but you look more like 6ft. However I could be wrong.

Anything under 6
Lenad said on 21/Feb/09
Anything under 5ft11 is BS.
\\\\\\\\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 14/Feb/09
I think 6ft now is more reasonable and 184-185cm in his prime.
Hugh said on 6/Feb/09
I'd say 183cm-184cm.
Hugh said on 4/Feb/09
He doesn't tower enough to look like a 6ft2 guy. To at least LOOK 6ft2 you'd have to be 6ft1 at least.
Lenad said on 3/Feb/09
I just went on 5 sites and they all say 6'2.
Lenad said on 31/Jan/09
How Quaid ever got listed at 6ft2 is beyond me.
Hugh said on 20/Jan/09

Quaid 182cm.
Brosnan 187cm.
Tom said on 19/Jan/09
I met him on the set of Wyatt Earp. I'm 5-11. I'd put him at 6-0.
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
Wow, James that's a pretty big downgrade. 6ft2 down to 5ft11.25. Maybe Dennis is still a little taller than 6ft and perhaps is wearing big footwear.
Hugh said on 18/Jan/09
All of you just take a look at MD's first picture. Dennis is roughly the same height as his son.
John said on 18/Jan/09
Saw him listed at 5'9" somewhere.
Lenad said on 16/Jan/09
6'2 is a laugh but so is under 5'11.
Hugh said on 16/Jan/09
Look in the first pic MD posted. He clearly looks eye level with his son.
Lenad said on 15/Jan/09
A strong 181cm or a weak 182cm?
Hugh said on 13/Jan/09
Not really James. In that picture with Dennis and his wife he looks no taller. Maybe his son is 188cm and Dennis is 185cm.
Hugh said on 9/Jan/09
Sure James, but I'm suspicious. He looks the same height as son whose presumably 6ft2.
Hugh said on 9/Jan/09
Sure James, but I'm suspicious.

'At almost 6-2 and around 180 I felt that I had the looks but not the right personality to be a leading man'

He looks the same height as Jack.
MD said on 23/Dec/08
Huh? Here is a picture with his son Jack just this September:

6'2" he is not.

BTW, here's Dennis with 6'4" (or 6'5") Falcon's quarterback Matt Ryan:

Anyone know what Matt Ryan has been measured at?

With Thomas Haden Church given 5'11.25", here:

I stick by my original estimate that he's not a full 6'0". I think he's closer to 5'11" than 6'0", or at least smack-dab in the middle.
Anonymous said on 21/Dec/08
He looks 5'11/11.5 max
Mr. R said on 12/Dec/08
Take a look at this site, and you will see several pics of Dennis taking Jack for his learner's permit. In the walking scene, Jack is clearly 2 inches taller if not a little more.
Hugh said on 11/Dec/08
That does make sense, James. Also Randy looks like a bit of a bully at times with his broad frame and Dennis with his lighter scrawnier frame.
Hugh said on 11/Dec/08
You may not be aware of this. But Randy has actually been nominated for an academy award and Dennis hasn't. And yeah probably the height thing aswell, lol.
Mister Lennon said on 10/Dec/08
I think that the peak for this guy was 6'. He looked an inch shorter than Kevin Costner in Wyatt Earp.
Hugh said on 9/Dec/08
Same here James. I don't think Dennis and Randy get on well. That's what I've heard. You see I have friends in Hollywood. I think a solid 6ft guy and 6ft1 in normal shoes.
Anonymous said on 9/Dec/08
A solid 5ft11in guy. 6ft in normal shoes.
Hugh said on 8/Dec/08
I think he's still around 6ft. I'd say 6ft1 was his peak.
Lenad said on 7/Dec/08
Quaid looks like a proper 182cm guy
Anonymous said on 6/Dec/08
To me, he has always looked around 5-11, I can't see him at 6-0. His peak he could have been 5-11.5/11.75
Hugh said on 2/Dec/08
I think Whitaker could be under 6ft2 but I wouldn't say he's lost height though. He's only 45-46 years of age.
Baree flames said on 30/Nov/08
I have always thought he was 6'2 but after watching vantage point.seeing him with 6'3 forest wintaker i saw he was about 3inches shorter.definetly on
Hugh said on 28/Nov/08
I think 6ft0.5 now and 6ft1 peak.
Hugh said on 26/Nov/08
So James, today you're saying he's 184cm. Would that result in a full 6ft1 peak?
anonymous said on 26/Nov/08
Next to hugh laurie 6 foot. I say he's 6 foot 1 at most.
Hugh said on 25/Nov/08
But in his 20's he was taller surely?
Hugh said on 23/Nov/08
But peakwise James. Nowadays 184cm.
Hugh said on 19/Nov/08
James, would 185-186cm peak be a good estimate for Dennis.
Hugh said on 19/Nov/08
Okay, in fairness Dennis didn't look even 6ft next to Fox.
Hugh said on 18/Nov/08
His son looks 188cm on the nose. Dennis 185-186cm?
Hugh said on 14/Nov/08
But I wouldn't call Dennis a liar by saying his son is 6ft2.
Hugh said on 14/Nov/08
Maybe James.
Hugh said on 11/Nov/08
Hold on Dennis is bending his head quite a bit. He's slouching a little aswell. If he stood up straight he's be close in height to his son.
anonymous said on 29/Oct/08
Here is his son Mr. R (i am not sure how up to date it is though): Click Here
I have to wonder what his son would look like without all that hair.

He's solid 6'.
Mr. R said on 18/Oct/08
The other day on The Ellen Degeneres Show, Dennis mentioned his son Jack, who I believe is 16. (Meg Ryan's the mom.) He stated that Jack was "6-2" and was already taller than him. I found a few pics, and Jack is definitely at least two inches taller. Again, I am too ignorant to load pics. Can anyone find it?
Hugh said on 9/Oct/08
Randy obviously. It really does depend on how tall the woman is. If she's say 5ft10-6ft then more likely Randy. If shorter than 5ft7 then they'd go for Dennis.
Leung said on 7/Oct/08
Game was just referring to opinion that Dennis would do better with women. I have not met either of them but based on my observations of them in movies and interviews Dennis is much more certain of himself, is a confident individual and generally displays characteristics of the type of guy that does pretty well in terms of attracting women. Hell I

True Leung, Randy acts like an animal at times. Dennis is tall enough but he's not impressively tall. And Leung what do you mean that Dennis has more game?
Leung said on 7/Oct/08
I would say Dennis because he is a better looking dude and he has more game and anyway he
Hugh said on 6/Oct/08
Dennis probably. No offense to Randy but he really does look like a troll compared to his younger brother.
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
Maybe it's just his posture. It hasn't been great lately. And that's true that Dennis is far more good looking than his older and physically bigger brother Randy.
Hugh said on 30/Sep/08
Rob I know I keep mentioning it. But don't you think you were being a little harsh on Glenn. Afterall he did contribute a lot to this site. It's kind of throwing it back in his face by banning him. Anyway, James Dennis can occasionally look 6ft1 which, by the way I wouldn't rule out at his peak. But if you watch Vantage Point he doesn't quite look 6ft next to the 6ft2 guys like Forest Whitaker, Matthew Fox and William Hurt. There is probably more than 2 inches there. However there are times when Quaid can look 6ft1-2.

Editor Rob
there was good and bad to Glenn from my viewpoint.

I don't know, if Glenn would cut down on threats of banning and really toned down language and calling some celebs d***ks etc then the good might have outweighed the bad and it wouldn't have reached a point were I thought the bad outweighed the good.
Hugh said on 29/Sep/08
Actually I'm beginning to think that Dennis is shorter than 6ft. He looks more 181-182cm.
Frank2 said on 18/Sep/08
Well, explain then why we were eye to eye?
Hugh said on 17/Sep/08
He's definately not below 6ft.
Frank2 said on 15/Sep/08
Dennis is my height or 5'11". If he wears shoes with larger than normal heals he can look well over 6'.
Hugh said on 13/Sep/08
A typical lift wearer.
Hugh said on 10/Sep/08
looked a good 6ft in Vantage Point.
