6'5 or close. 6'4.5 at worst

Seen him with Tyler mane. Tbh hardly much in it. 6-5
FriedChicken said on 7/Sep/21
I say probably 6'4 3/4. A shrunken 6'7" Tyler Mane can look a little more than 2" taller at times. It looks like a 2.25" to 2.5" difference between them
Canson said on 4/Aug/21
This guy is not 6’5”. Maybe 6’4.5” if anything. He has thick shoes in the pic above
Vexacus said on 3/Apr/20
6'5. I think he's the tallest Jason , at least in body shape , Kirzinger used big boots that made him look massive in Freddy vs Jason.
Jkiller said on 5/Mar/20
Yeah 6'5 seems about right.
Neville46 said on 30/Dec/19
In your opinion who is the taller, derek or ken kirzginger? (Peak height and today)
Editor Rob
I can see why some folk would class Derek as a big 6ft 5 range peak guy (like possibly a bit over), though I think there may well only be a small fraction in it if you measured either of them in their 20's.

Some times, Jared looks taller than Derek.

'Some times.'
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jul/18
New pair of boots given:

Cowboy boots 2"
Worker boots 1.5"
Mountain boots 1.4"
Normal boots 1.4"
Thin boots 1.1"

Derek Mears look to a normal boots on his feet, if he often wear it might boost only 1.3" (3.3cm) same like common type of mountain boots. I watch some movie he look 6'6 3/4 with it. Honest 6'5 is believable.
Vexacus said on 13/May/18
Easily the tallest Jason . 6'5
berta said on 29/Apr/18
cant see tihs guy as a legit 6 foot 5 guy. maybe he is but there is no chanse he is over it and a very big possibility that he could be up tp half inch under
Canson said on 29/Mar/18
He’s wearing boots in this pic. I agree with Bobby3342 and Ali Baba’s estimates.
Jrbowe42 said on 26/Mar/18
He seems about 2 inches taller than C.J. Graham, who is an easy 6‘3 so I‘d say he’s 6‘5 minimum, possibly more:

@Andrea: that probably isn’t the best pic. He could be 6’4” like Jared who knows but that pic isn’t enough to tell that he’s taller
Andrea said on 10/Dec/17
Not the best pic, but he does look taller than Jared: Click Here
Just like he looks comfortably taller than Adam Baldwin, in same footwear: Click Here
I certainly wouldn't rule out 6'4.5, but 6'4 flat does seem too low. Let alone under!
Rob, could you give him a photo? Am I wrong or there was a picture of him with a visitor (who claimed to be 6'5) at the top of the page in the past?
As for his claim, he seems quite consistent with 6'5 on Twitter: Click Here
Editor Rob
there was a guy who met him and was about the same height...

Derek certainly is over 6ft 4 I would say, he holds up well beside a guy like Robert Davi who claims 6ft 3.
Canson said on 10/Dec/17
@Christian: very true. Could’ve been posture or possible footwear. I was referring to 193-194 for Bobby as his low is 6’4.25.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 9/Dec/17

Could even be 6'4" flat. Bobby met Mears and said he looked 6'3.5", which I'm not sure if Mear is that low but who knows.
Canson said on 7/Dec/17
I may have to agree with Bobby3342 after seeing more pics esp if he a 193-194cm guy was taller than Mears
baja74 said on 11/Sep/17
@ S.J.H Graham was listed at 6'3" from various sources of articles. He also said he weighed 218 when he played Jason. Nowadays he looks well over 240. But seeing him standing next to other Jason actors, he is well deserving of this 6'3" claim.
And I have no doubt that Derek Mears is 6'5". Unable to locate the photo where he is standing in smaller footwear and next to Kane Hodder (who does wear lifts) and he was towering over Kane.
S.J.H said on 18/Apr/17
Anyone know how tall is C.J. Graham from Friday the 13th ?
berta said on 30/Jan/17
rob what about 195 listing? wasnt really taller than jared. at best 2 cm
berta said on 12/Jan/17
looked about the same height as jared padalacki. maybe 1 cm taller. i think he can be 194-95 range
Canson said on 10/Dec/16
I doubt 6'5 seriously. At most my height 194 cm or could be even 6'4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Oct/16
He may be more 194-195cm zone than 196cm. He's taller than Adam Baldwin but he might not be a full 6ft4.
James said on 13/Jun/16
If you look at those convention photos where he is standing next to the other Jason actors, he is clearly taller than all of them. There are some where they are not in a perfect line. But I would put money on him being a legit 6 foot 5. I wouldn't agree with anything less than 6 foot 4 though.
He was a beast as Jason. He put a whole new meaning to the physical aspect of it. Well done. I think he should take the role for any future F13 movie.
tumac66 said on 30/Aug/15
I just met him at Crypticon KC He`s at least 6feet4 and 6 5 at the very most. Also one heck of a nice guy.
James B said on 24/Aug/15
In pics with tyler mane he doesn't look 6'5 but then he looks 1 inch taller than Adam Baldwin so 6'5 seems right
bobby h3342 said on 29/Apr/15
I don't want to be a downgrader ,but I ran in to him a couple years ago at the Valley Plaza at jcpenneys of all places. ,(im 6 5 and change(with sneakers)and I was noticeably taller than him. Im sorry but I have to agree with Ali Baba. 6 3.5 ish barefoot . 6 4.75 in sneakers
joe 192cm said on 12/Jan/15
watch friday the 13 exceeded padaleckiem 1cm and a half
joe said on 29/Nov/14
rob,do you really think he's a big 6'5 as ken kirzinger I think the highest ken
Editor Rob
it's possible he's in 6ft 4.5-5 range, maybe ken is more nearer 6ft 5 and holds that height more than derek.
joe said on 29/Nov/14
I agree with Ali baba looked the same height of 6'4 padalecki (193-194) my guess
Andrea said on 31/Oct/14
Rob, go to 4.10:

Same shoes, he does look a bit taller than Adam Baldwin but then he seems a bit closer to the camera... 6'4.5 isn't ruled out, i guess!
Editor Rob
Mears generally looks 6ft 5 I think
KROC said on 15/Aug/14
Jeff7488 Could you just post that picture here? This guy really doesn't look a legit 6'5.
Jeff7488 said on 14/Aug/14
Derek Mears is a legit 6'5". I'm 6'4" and he was taller than me when I met him at a con. I have a pic I can send to Rob if he wants it.
Andrea said on 24/Apr/14
He had a scene with Adam Baldwin on Chuck and he did look a bit taller, not sure it is an inch though (and no footwear visible)... But next to Tyler Mane, he doesn't look much over 6'4. In any case, i doubt he's a big 6'5 man.
kreyzig 6ft 3in said on 25/Aug/13
He had an inch on jared padalecki in friday the 13th so 6ft 5 is pretty accurate.
Ali Baba said on 13/May/13
And that's giving the benefit of the doubt. Actually looks closer to 6'2".
Editor Rob
that photo looks like it adds a little bit to Tyler's height.
Ali Baba said on 7/May/13
6'3.5" range.
ray 6' 158 lbs said on 8/Aug/12

My ideal height..I wish i was this tall..;-)!!
Tyler said on 7/Sep/11
@Michael He didn't "tower" over Jared Padalecki. He has like a hair on him. You can hardly tell the height difference between them.
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 18/Aug/11
Derek Mears is huge, but lanky. The lankiness actually succeeds in making him look bigger though; long collarbone (broad) and enormous arms, as well as very long legs. 6'5.25" is my diagnosis. Clearly not a hair under 6'5" anytime.
xyz.reg(6 ft 0.5er) said on 4/Jul/11
His heights falls in the 'ULTIMATE DOMINATING CATEGORY'(6ft 4.5in-6ft 7in)he is almost a full head taller if u consider 5ft 8-9in as an average..!!!
Celtic said on 17/Jun/11
Derek Mears is Huge, no arguement.
James said on 22/May/11
Derek looks 194cm if Jeff is 196cm.
Michael said on 15/May/11
Notice Derek's arms are longer than Jeff's although both of them are at the same height. He is perfect to be cast as Jason Voorhees as he towers above 6'4" Jared Padalecki.
CaptainSpaulding said on 11/May/11
This guy's a strong 6'5". He should be listed at 6'5.5".
Cranberries said on 8/May/11
Hey Rob, the formatting in the info is a bit screwy. You might want to fix that. But yeah, big 6'5" guy. 6'5" is an enormous height.
Jake T. said on 4/Mar/11
Mears looked very close in height to Jared Padalecki who is 6'4 so Derek could be 6'4.75 or 195 cm.
Tyler said on 27/Jan/11
6'5 1/2 is my guess.
Big King said on 2/Jul/09
Jeff, thanks but my height is not a legit 6'6" since I hit that mark only in the morning, I'm 6'5.5", nothing over ;)
-Jeff- said on 30/Jun/09
Big King,..I was awake for hours before going to the doctors office. I have a picture taken on the same day with 6'5" Ken Foree and I look slightly taller than him. You really are the "Big King" at 6'6"..... :-)
Big King said on 29/Jun/09
Well, Mears looks about 1/4" taller than you, Jeff. So that means that you're just 6'5" in the morning where I'm 6'6". What is late morning for you by the way, I mean how many hours after being awake? You might push 6'5.25" out of bed.
Anonymous said on 28/Jun/09
I met Derek Mears at Monster Mania, he was definately the tallest guest there. Very nice guy.
-Jeff- said on 24/Jun/09
All three times I was measured were in the late morning and early afternoon. I don't know if the doctors round up or round down. I hope that helps. I don't know what kind of footwear Derek Mears was wearing. I'm sure it's the same at most of his convention appearances.
Big King said on 23/Jun/09
It would be of my interest on what time Jeff got measured 6'5". He might push a legit 196cm in the morning where Mears is easily 197cm. There is really 1/4" difference between them. That would make Mears a legit 6'5 1/4".
Jason Voorhees fan said on 16/Jun/09
Derek Mears looks significantly taller than 6'3" Richard Brooker who played Jason is part 3. CJ Graham who is also 6'3" looks a taller than Richard Brooker. Is it the foot wear? Derek Mears dwarfs the 6'3" Jasons. Could be the footwear and camera angles. But Derek is signifigantly taller than the past Jasons. Usually 6'3"-6'5" there isn't a big notice. I don't know...?
Anonymous said on 7/Jun/09
All of the Jasons past part 2 have always been 6'3" of taller. Mears is a great Jason. 6'7" in boots?
Big King said on 6/Jun/09
Mears has a great look and a great height for the role of Jason Voorhees.
Anonymous said on 6/Jun/09
How much height do Ecko boots give? Mears was wearing them at the MTV awards. Anyone know? Could give him a good two inches possibly? Ecko boots...
Yaspaa said on 26/May/09
Woh,he's the fighter in season 7 episode 4 of CSI Miami,looks looming.
yoyo said on 24/May/09
6ft5 looks right. can't be more than that.
Yaspaa said on 14/May/09
Ryan Hansen second from left is close to 6'0,it's not a great accuracy shot but Mears does look very large indeed. Click Here
Yaspaa said on 14/May/09
If Jeff tilts his head straight along with Mears there may be 0.5" in mears favour,everything is higher his crotch,his shoulders and his neck,it's the head tilts that are making them look the same but as usual...footwear.
Big King said on 7/May/09
Jeff said that he got measured 6'5" three times by a doctor. I wonder on what time his measurements took place. So that would make Jeff slightly above 6'5" in the morning and Derek could be 6'5.5" or almost 6'6" in the morning.
Big King said on 7/May/09
Whoa, Tyler Many almost dwarfs Mears. I'm sure that there is 4 inches height difference between them.
Riley said on 5/May/09
Here's a pic of me and Derek Mears and Tyler Mane from this past weekend.
Click Here
Big King said on 5/May/09
Well but I still think that Derek has 1/4" inch advantage on Jeff. Don't you think so too? Maybe wanna give Derek an extra 1/4"?
Big King said on 5/May/09
Even Jeff stands closer to the camera. So Mears has to be 6'5.5". Rob, as you can see from this photo, Mears is slightly taller than Jeff. So why don't you add another 1/4" or 1/2" for him?

Editor Rob
because he could be wearing a 1.3 inch boot and Jeff a 3/4 inch sneaker...such things can make differences.
Big King said on 30/Apr/09
Derek could easily hit 6'5.5" in the morning, 6'5.25" for the next hours and 6'5" at his lowest. I wonder on what time Jeff got measured 6'5".
Big King said on 27/Apr/09
Well I think that Derek is 6'5.25" and Ken 6'5.5".
Vladimir said on 21/Apr/09
I wonder who's taller, Derek Mears or the previous guy to portray Jason, Ken Kirzinger. I'd say this is a really close one, because Derek could be a little over 6'5, as you can see in the picture with Jeff, and Ken looked 7ft tall in Freddy Vs. Jason :)). That's obviously because of the huge boots he wore in that movie, but Ken is pretty much 6'5, just like Derek. I'd say they're both pretty much the same height. What do you guys think?
Anonymous said on 4/Apr/09
My brother took a picture with him at Monster Mania.

My brother is 5'7", Mears looks HUGE compared to him. HUGE.

6'5" is very accurate. But Jared Padalecki is the same height. So up his height as well.
Big King said on 25/Mar/09
Hey Jeff, on what time did you get measured 6'5"? Morning or afternoon?
flash_of_eden said on 17/Mar/09
hey jeff,
i dont know if you frequent this page anymore, but if you do, i was just wondering-- at what age were you when you finally reached 6'5?
Sam said on 5/Mar/09
210 lbs ? Are you Kidding, someone at his height and built like him is 230 pounds easy. Think about it people, a man who is well built and mostly muscle at 6'5 is gonna be well over 200 pounds. He could even be 240, my guess is he is 235. Im 6'0 and 212 and know that if someone who was 6'5 and built like him stood next to me, he would have me by 25 to 30 pounds.
Alex said on 2/Mar/09
At his height he's gotta be at least 220, maybe 230lbs.
Yaspaa said on 2/Mar/09
6'5.5 and 225lbs I will guess.
Rusty said on 1/Mar/09
6'5" and 210 pounds for this guy easy.
Yaspaa said on 28/Feb/09
Morning height should not be used as you are only taller due to more fluid in the spine which drains out during the day. (most of it pretty quickly) Someone has said on another page that the guinness book of records take three measurements,morning,noon and night which is a fair assessment.
Alex said on 27/Feb/09
James, midday or evening height you'll be seen out. Almost never out of bed height but your mid-late morning height you can be seen at. Say you get up and go somewhere 2-3 hours later you'll be in between your out of bed and midday height likely.
Jason said on 27/Feb/09
A couple of centimeters is nothing to bicker about. They are both very tall individuals.
Big King said on 27/Feb/09
derek d, you have right. It's fair enough to take the morning height too because you're full stretched. There are height difficulties all over the world because some use their morning and others are using their afternoon height so it's still unknown what height is actual.
Jordan said on 26/Feb/09
The SOB is huuuge---a well built guy at his height which is at least 6'4.5
Brad said on 26/Feb/09
Footwear should be the #1 factor on this site and it never is. The load is on night height etc.. You put on a pair a big boots to somebody in sneakers.....
derek d said on 25/Feb/09
Whats with all these "strong" and "weak" heights, I thought your morning height was your official height? I mean everyone shrinks throughout the day with you and assuming most people go to sleep and night and wakes up in the morning/afternoon, what is the point of even having a afternoon and evening height? Sounds so complicated lol.
Big King said on 25/Feb/09
OK, 6'6" for Derek is too exaggerated. He's 6'5 1/2" at his peak in my opinion.
Jason said on 24/Feb/09
I think there is a footwear issue here.
Alex said on 24/Feb/09
6'6 out of bed can also be a weak 6'6.
Big King said on 24/Feb/09
Yes, one result is that 6'5 and "a half" is annoying for Derek, so he just claims 6'5".

And about heights, I guess that should be discussed on the general height page. 6'5 3/4" - 6'6" out of bed, isn't even a strong 6'5" anymore, that's 6'5 1/2".

And one thing I noticed is that the imperial height system is so difficult to verify because it's unexactly and involved. Sometimes I wonder why Americans don't use the metric system too.
Haze said on 24/Feb/09
its comes down to preference wat people want to claim.

in my opinion, if your over 6' then ur already above average so i see no point in trying to round up.

i am 6'3.75 morning. in the afternoon i can get as low as 6'3.25 . so im def. a strong 6'3. but its not that important to me, so when people ask i just say 6'3. i dont throw in .5" or .75" or round up like some do.

im wonder if mears is doing the same. he looks a bout 6'5.5". mybe he thinks the way i do and doesnt bother with quarters of inches. so he claims 6'5. and ill give it to him, as a strong 6'5
John said on 23/Feb/09
looks like gremlin but he is taller than the guy beside him
Alex said on 23/Feb/09
You're a true 6'5 guy as long as you dont go below 6'4.5 at your lowest. Well if you do then you're a weak 6'5.

6'5.25 out of bed and 6'4.5 is a normal 6'5

6'5 out of bed and 6'4-6'4.25 by night is a weak 6'5.

6'5.75-6'6 out of bed and 6'4.75-6'5.25 by night is a strong 6'5
Alex said on 23/Feb/09
I think as long as you're 6'5 in the afternoon at least then you're a legit 6'5 even if you are 6'4.5 at your lowest. You'd be closer to 6'5 than 6'4.
Big King said on 23/Feb/09
James, that's nonsense. a true 6'5er would be 6'5 1/4" in the morning and 6'4 3/4" in the evening. I'm sure that Derek downgraded his height for almost a half inch.
Alex said on 22/Feb/09
For example. 6'5.25 morning and 6'4.5 evening is still a legit 6'5 I think. A weak 6'5 but more than a solid 6'4.
Alex said on 22/Feb/09
James true. Also if a guy wakes up at 6'5.5 and his lowest is 6'4.75 thats a legit 6'5er too. If his height goes under 6'4.5 by the evening and his max isn't above 6'5.25 when he wakes then hes more 6'4.
Alex said on 20/Feb/09
James, yea 195cm is pretty much dead on 6'4.75 while 196cm is just under 6'5 1/4 so 196cm is closer to 6'5 than 195cm is. I can agree that 194-195cm is a weak 6'5 and 196-197cm is a strong 6'5. Also depends what time of the day they are that height.
Jake777 said on 20/Feb/09
Both look 6'5" strong. Jeff's neck looks longer than Derek's. I can't see a difference. 6'5" looking to me.
Eric said on 20/Feb/09
They both look 6'5 to me. Any discrepancy would be with the footwear. Both are definately 6'5 looking to me. Very tall guys.
Jason said on 19/Feb/09
They both look solid 6'5ers. I think footwear is the difference if any here. They are both very tall dudes!
Yaspaa said on 19/Feb/09
Well how about the Fxxxxxx footwear man!
Alex said on 19/Feb/09
James, thats fair but Jeff did measure at a flat 6'5 he said. I believe 6'5 in smack in between 195 and 196cm. Is that true Rob or is 6'5 closer to one of those?
Big King said on 19/Feb/09
We all know that Derek is a strong 6'5er.
Big King said on 19/Feb/09
Absolutely right. Derek has about a half inch advantage on Jeff.
Yaspaa said on 19/Feb/09
I wonder what the footwear is like?
Alex said on 18/Feb/09
Jeff is a flat 6'5 as Derek is probably a smidge over.
Alex said on 18/Feb/09
Actually 196cm fit him more better since thats pretty much 6'5 1/4 as 197cm would be more 6'5 3/4.
john said on 18/Feb/09
that is one weird lookin dude, he plays the perfect jason...haha
Brad said on 17/Feb/09
Which is Derek & which is Jeff?
Big King said on 17/Feb/09
Well, Derek has 1/4 to 1/2 inch on Jeff.
derek d said on 17/Feb/09
Yeah I actually meant Derek's forehead, its about twice the size of yours Jeff lol.... and I don't think anyone here would be jealous of his extremely long forehead haha.
nick said on 17/Feb/09
all we know is that the huy is a legit 6'5. Cant tell quarters. looks like the khali shaq pic, too close to call
Yaspaa said on 16/Feb/09
Yo Jeff,can you remember what footwear was being worn?
Alex said on 16/Feb/09
Derek and Jared looked close in height but hard to tell how much since it was dark in the scene. Derek may be like 6'5 1/4 since Jeff is a flat 6'5.
Haze said on 15/Feb/09
actually jeff i think they were talking about mears with the forehead thing. hes got a big forehead making his eyes lower than your yet he looks slightly taller.

so jeff if ur spot on 6'5 what would you say mears is? 5.5" mybe or is it just the angle and posture that skewin it
Alex said on 15/Feb/09
The shortest Jason was Steve Dash but now sure how tall he was. I would have said anywhere from 5'10 minimum to 6'0 max.
Alex said on 15/Feb/09
77 inches is 6'5. So Derek might be like 6'5 1/4 then.

Ed, I am checking out the new Friday the 13th tonight so I'll repond about it tomorrow or later. VERY rare do they have someone in a Jason movie who is that close to Jason's height.
-Jeff- said on 15/Feb/09
77 inches. Three times in the past two years. By a doctor. That is all.

Well in the new Friday remake which I just saw, Mears and Jared Padalecki(6ft4)look almost identical in height. Granted it's only an inch, so that will be barely noticeable, but at several times during the film Padalecki edged out Mears. They both wore boots with substantial heels, Padalecki's were more motorcycle style and Mears were more costruction.

Either way if he's 6f4ish or 6ft5ish he rocked as Jason, and was easily the best to don the mask in my opinion! He was lean but built, fast as hell, and looked huge in costume. Not Kirizinger huge, but equally imposing and creepy!And as for the kills, I'd say he'd give all the other Jasons a serious run for their money!

Hats off to Derek!

James, if you were to draw a line from the top of their heads how the picture if Jeff would be at least as tall as Derek, maybe slightly taller like 1/4 inch but is a bit closer to the camera so would break about even. I think if both were at the same level from the camera Derek would maybe edge him out barely. Could be a different footwear too.

Rob is right, the photo is tilted in Derek's favour very slightly (follow the red curtain) and he appears very marginally taller than Jeff (~0.25")

I really don't see the point in Jeff lying about his height especially when we are trying to gauge Dereks height.

Editor Rob
remember he may wear something like Vans, he said he's been measured a few times at 6ft 5.

I'm Jeff in the pic with Derek. I'm 6'5". No more no less. Footwear can make a difference. Derek is a great guy. I'm long and lanky. Derek outweighs me by about 30-40lbs. Hope that helps. My neck is long and I appreciate my large forehead comments. Jealous people.
Alex said on 14/Feb/09
Yea, if Derek is a flat 6'5 then Jeff may only be 6'4-6'4 1/2.

The other guy is tilting his head back making him look taller.

Editor Rob
I think maybe there is slight tilt in pic.

Its funny cause Jeff's eyes are higher than Derek's (due to his huge forehead) by an full inch yet Derek is taller or possibly the same height haha its weird that he probably looks up to 6'5 guys yet may even be taller than them.

Definitely looks a little over 6'5 IF that Jeff guy is really 6'5. Jeff's camera advantage (the angle favours him + he's slightly closer to the camera) makes him seem the same height as Derek, but without it he's clearly a little shorter.

It'll be interesting to see the difference between Mears and Jared Padalecki(6ft4)in the new Friday! Yeah I agree Alex, he does look a bit taller then Jeff, 6ft5.5 could be spot on!
Alex said on 13/Feb/09
He looks 6'5, maybe 6'5 1/2 since Jeff is a bit closer to the camera and are the same height. This is different since we have a very tall poster who is the same height as the celeb.
