How tall is Derek Luke

Derek Luke's Height

5ft 11 (180.3 cm)

American actor, best known for films such as Antwone Fisher, Spartan and Biker Boyz. In a Sports Illustrated (Jan/2006) interview talking about the movie Glory Road, he commented on dunking, saying: "I'm inches away. I'm only 5-feet 11-inches, but I get up there really well. My problem is when I'm in the air, I'm thinking about style. Right now, the only thing holding me back is coordination and trusting myself"

I think somewhere within 5ft 11 is ok for Derek. I found some photos of him next to Denzel Washington and Joy Bryant from 2002: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Denzel looked decidedly taller than Derek. Rob, is there still a chance of 6ft 0.5 for Denzel?

Nah, I REALLY think he's more 5'10" than he is 5'11". Here he is with a 5'6.75" Chris Messina, if we're talking about the same Derek Luke:

Messina is even at a disadvantage here leaning more than Luke. I'd say he's closer to 5'10" than he is 5'11".

Weird, only here and that-site-whose-name-can-not-be-mentioned have him at this height. Everywhere else has him lower. Maybe he's in between 5'10" and 5'11".

Sophia Adella is listed as 5f6.5(169cm) on the internet. In the following photo Adella and Luke look pretty similar in height. Maybe Luke is a cm taller as he is slouching a little.

Adella: (169+12) = 181cm
Luke: (180+2) = 182cm

Not sure if Adellas heels would give her 12cm.

denzel is not 6'0. i remember luke was listed 5'10 in here before. that was more accurate.

He looked an inch or two shorter then 6'0 Denzel. 5'10-5'11 sounds about right for him.

He is not 6'0-6'1. more like 5'10-510.5. I've seen him in person and he didn't seem that tall and I'm a legit 6'1er and change.

dmeyer said on 13/Jan/08
rob could he be 179 cm since he can look solid 5'11 in some pics
dmeyer said on 13/Jan/08
looks about 5'11 near denzel
dmeyer said on 13/Jan/08
can look 5'11 with denzel but i think he is more 5'10 because of his built

He's 5'10" the movie Glory Road in the last game against Kentucky when it announces the starting line ups his player is announced as "At 5 Foot 10"...

I gotta go wit 5'10.5 cuz in Spartan a few shots of Derek n Val 2gether Val had atleast 2 inches on um unless Val's like 6'1 but I always thought of Val at 5'11 or 6'0 he's probally 6'0.5 so I'd say Luke is 5'10.5

Defintely this height. I was an extra in a music video that he was featured in way back in '96 (A Tribe Called Quest's Stressed Out), he did seem a strong 5'11".
