How tall is Dominic Purcell

Dominic Purcell's Height

6ft ½ in (184.2 cm)

English-born Australian actor best known for playing Lincoln Burrows in TV series Prison Break, Mick Rory (Heat Wave) in Legends of Tomorrow and for films like Blade:Trinity, Assault on Wall Street and Killer Elite. In 2008 he said "I'm a big guy, 6-foot-2 and 193 pounds. When you think about it, most male leading actors are between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10.

Has a 5'7.5" Eye Level but is dropping over 1/2". His true eye level is a 5'8.25 if he stood straight which should get you too Rob's 6'0.5 ' estimate easily.

I'd say Rob is on point here.

Rob if he is 11 cm taller why he is a little above your eyebrows
Editor Rob
Give him a bit more height for leaning, over 6ft for sure.

i think guys like john cena, Henry cavill adn maybe brandley cooper can have a edge on this guy and wenthworth. They could be weak 184 while the others 3 could be stronger 184 guys.

Maybe Dom might be a stronger 184cm than Went
Jawilder said on 18/Sep/21
6’0.5”. I think with Wentworth and Dominic you would have to measure them to tell who is taller. I think it could come down to millimeters. Dominic certainly has the better posture of the two which makes him look taller more often. When I watched Prison Break, it seemed to go back and forth on who was taller from what I recall. Two amazing men and actors, both get 6’0.5” from me πŸ‘

He has a great build about 95kg I’m guessing

At least three inches shorter than Michael Rapaport.
Andrea said on 29/Nov/20
Well, Rob said that both him and Wentworth could seem a bit taller than Alex in person, but I agree that there probably wouldn't be much. Ultimately, both could well be more 6'0.25 than 6'0.5 at their low.
Tunman said on 21/Nov/20
Yeah,such difference is very hard to spot indeed,but overall if Dom's truly the full 6'0.5 mark then Miller could be fractionally smaller.I'm not sure but I feel Miller won't even hit the 184 mark if measured,it could be interesting if someone like legit 6' Big Alex meets him,could be very hard to tell them apart as well

Andrea dom would edge went by 0.5-1cm
Andrea said on 11/Nov/20
I doubt you can tell such a small difference from a clip like that, Tunman. The only way could do so is with a "Height Challenge"-style comparison. Personally, I still wouldn't have guessed Dom any taller than Wentworth on the show, but I have no doubt he could look the taller one at times, and vice versa, which is the reason why I can believe they are overall very close, and I think you really need to measure them to tell who is the taller one.
Slim 6'1@ said on 4/Nov/20
Edged Wentworth Miller

I’ve got Dom at 184cm &
Went at 183cm
Tunman said on 19/Oct/20
Editor Rob: having a quite big head like Dom, doesn't really help him seem that tall.

I guess by big you mean wide rather than long?I mean I could have sworn his head was no more than 9-9.25 like Miller,definitely shorter than yours anyways,which certainly won't look "big" on a 6'+
Editor Rob
yeah he's got width to it.
Tunman said on 19/Oct/20

Here is some good footage of Dominic and Wentworth.Both are bald and if you check at 1:29 both seem to have thick footwear.At 0:12-0:14 they look very similar well Dom seems to edge Wentworth by something like 4-5mm at best.If you can stop at the right moment I think you can definitely have the true difference between them.A very small fraction anyways.

on Legends with good posture+boots Dominic can pull off 6ft 1 range.

I agree the quote of 6'1/2". Imposing body, with a right posture he's still really that tall in the end of the day. A particular of Dominic: his head is large, wide and long; he could be a Minecraft character, eheheh!!
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Aug/19
Click Here this picture was tilt from the background it benefits his younger son more than him and tallest son, the younger one look to be shoulder level same as Dominic but standing much closer to camera. Taller son could be near 5" taller than Dom.

@Wayne because so many 5'10-5'11 dudes claim 6ft. I've had the experience of witnessing a 5'9 claiming 6ft. 3inches lol

it would be funny if he cliamed 6 foot 2 beside chris pine and pine says that he is 6 fett. then they stand back to back and pine takes him with 0,5 cm :P
Dennanz said on 10/Oct/18
Somewhere In the region of 6'0-6'0.5 I think ,can look a tad lower at times when having bad posture.
Wayne said on 18/Sep/18
Well why are so many 6'-6'1" guys claiming 6'2" ??
Zampo said on 7/Sep/18
How tall would you say he looks in the photo above with you? 5'11.75-6'0?
Editor Rob
Close to 6ft but of course measures over that.
Andrea said on 7/Jul/18
Here is with his sons: Click Here
He did call the taller one 6'4 in one of his older posts...
If you look at the comments, there's a bit of height talk and one guy claims that he met him (Dom) and that he didn't look any taller than his 5'10 stature. That just goes to show how reliable are those kind of estimates, considering that he is clearly well above 5'10.
Editor Rob
Sometimes a person within 2 inches could easily think another person is about similar range especially if the taller guy is looking down a might think your eyeline is closer than it really is. Although his Son is closer, he's still far off his 6ft 2 claim.
MAD SAM said on 15/Jun/18
183 cm, 188-189 cm Dave Bautista towers over him
Zampo said on 6/May/18
Adjusting for the lean and looking at the height of his features. It looks like he would have a standing height (walks around) at about 6'0.25. Now..whether his measured height (standing at his tallest) would be a little taller, I can't tell.
sulu2018 said on 29/Apr/18
It makes sense for several sources to now have him at 6'1" to prove that he is actually slightly shorter than Jim Parsons.
sulu2018 said on 26/Apr/18
Is he actually a little shorter than Jim Parsons?
Andrea said on 18/Feb/18
To be fair, this isn't even a 4 inches difference... In fact, this is how a 3.5 inches gap looks like.
Wayne rooney said on 16/Feb/18
Hey rob!
So is this how a 4 inch gap looks ?
Editor Rob
It can look close to that, although I think at his tallest he is a bit more than 4 inches over myself.
Bobby said on 10/Feb/18
According to the height scale, he's under 6ft. Looks to have a 5'6.75 eye level. It might just be the lean though.
Editor Rob
I think standing tall he clears 6ft easy enough.

I'd say he was taller than 'Big Alex' who is a 6ft 1/8th fella, but not much really.
Canson said on 3/Jan/18
He may have lost some height today. Can honestly look closer to 6’ with Rob than 6’1 and that’s accounting for his lean

Mark(5'9.5") said on 13/Sep/17
Claim of under 6 feet for Dominic Purcell = Insanity.
Correct. Went and Dom are most probably 6'0.5" give or take a quarter inch. Both will edge me unless doms lost a fraction from excessively lifting heavy weights. Which I asked rob a few months ago and he said maybe to a possibility of that.(doms lost a quarter inch imo.)

Slim said on 4/Sep/17
6'0.5", give or take a quarter inch, good build makes him look even taller, it just goes to show that bulk/width is more important than height tbh. I think most men would rather have doms build rather than poulters....
Mark(5'9.5 said on 26/Aug/17
Rob, how tall does Cavill look with Dominic Purcell? He doesn't look shorter than him.

Editor Rob
I think they would still measure closely
Andrea said on 8/Aug/17
Mark, remember that Rob said that Dom looks no taller than the 184 (183.8, to be precise) challenger guy in person and that he also gives a shorter impression than Stephen Amell, who is 184-5 range himself, at least in my opinion... So, while 6'0.5 is still a decent shout, I would say there's much more chance of 6'0.25 than say 6'0.75!
As for Brandon, there are several pictures with Dom and in many of them he can look over 2 inches taller. Which is why I asked Rob if, having met both of them, there's just 2 inches between them in person. I don't think that Brandon is much over his current listing but just a decent 189!
Mark(5'9.5") said on 7/Aug/17
6'0.25" is undercutting it, IMO
Andrea said on 3/Aug/17
The ABSOLUTE MOST I would have argued for him, before Rob met him, is 6'0.75 but I feel he's never been over 6'0.5 in reality. While you can't rule out a very small loss (like a few mms) by 47, I doubt he was much different 10 years ago. It might be true that he can look 3 cms taller than William, just like Wentworth can, but remember he generally wore bigger footwear on the show. Besides, William is 182 at most and may well be no more than 181-2 range...
Rob, since you have met both Dom and Brandon, there's really only 2 inches between them in person? It can look noticeably more than that in some pictures... I don't think that Brandon is 190 or over but he certainly is one of the biggest 189 on here!
Editor Rob
there is always a chance of a bit more than 2 inches, whether that means Routh 6ft 2.75 or Purcell 6ft 0.25 range is debatable.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 29/Jul/17
I feel this guy is similar to David Tennant.

Dmeyer said on 25/Jul/17
Rob do you think 6'0,75 10years ago Peak and 6 FT 0,25 now possible , this Guy looked easily 3cm over someone like 182cm fichtner
Editor Rob
if he's lost anything I'd have thought maybe 1/4 inch, you could still argue maybe 6ft 0.75 10 years ago
Mark(5'9.5 said on 24/Jul/17
Rob, I understand if you get tired of answering this, but who would have the edge between Tom Wlaschiha and Dominic Purcell by a few mm?
Editor Rob
Tom because he has an inch of hair naturally would look taller when looking at top of their heads, but I think they really are quite similar, apart from their claims.

One is honest, the other maybe slightly economical with the truth.
The shredder said on 24/Jul/17
well over 200 , people's weight vary , he might have been smaller back in 08
Dmeyer said on 23/Jul/17
I use to think 220 but his legs are think so 200
Editor Rob
he does have a bulky/wide upper body, but maybe he creeps over 200 a little.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/17
182cm is too low, in fact so is 183cm. I see a solid 184cm guy minimum, possibly 184.5cm. I think he'd still edge out Went back to back.
Slim 181 cm said on 8/Jul/17
Why does he look 182-183 in the photo scale meausurement? Must be all the weightlifting combined with injuries from doing his own stunts, especially for prison break season 5. And possibly his arrowverse character "heat wave".
Editor Rob
I do think Dom could stretch over 6ft for a measurement, but 6ft 1 is too much I feel.
Slim 181 cm said on 3/Jul/17
Rob, is it possible that Dom has shrunk due to excessive sports and bodybuilding like Jackman and "the rock" have? if he's the same height as Wentworth than he'd just measure under 183 with your little photo height scale.
Editor Rob
a fraction isn't impossible...
Andrea said on 28/Jun/17
Try with 9, slim! 😊
He looks near 182 with Rob (I know you are on a secret mission and can't answer but can you add the mugshot for Dom too, Rob? 😘)... Remember this is a measured 183.8 guy (so not even a 11 cms difference there): Click Here
Dom looks a couple of cms shorter than that guy... at least in this picture!
And no, I don't think he wears lifts. You could say he doesn't mind wearing big boots at times, although I'm sure in the first 2-3 eps of season 4 he wore low shoes, like 0.75 inches at most!
Editor Rob
not secret mission, I am doing a job for about 10 days to help with bills, so don't have as much time.

Slim 181 cm said on 27/Jun/17
1.5 inch exaggeration isn't uncommon and it makes a lot of sense as seen with Abruzzi and agent self.
Slim 181 cm said on 26/Jun/17
11 cm then, but I did post a pic of dom on his tippy toes trying to look taller than Bj routh and he stands with perfect posture just like Brad Pitt, whether as most people don't because it irritates your core muscles.
Slim 181 cm said on 26/Jun/17
6'0.25 - 6'0.75
Andrea said on 25/Jun/17
Not even close to 12 cms, to be fair!
Anyway, I've rewatched the entire show from season 1 to season 4 and I still wouldn't have given the edge to Dom nor guessed him as a big 6'1 guy! Funnily, I thought Went held his own with Michael Rapaport better than how Dom did! There was ONLY ONE scene from season 2 where I thought "Here Dom can look a decent 6'1" but guess what? He was wearing cowboy boots...
Slim 181 cm said on 24/Jun/17
Tippy toes and impeccable posture have now opened up a possibility of lift wearing, given that he looks 12 cm taller than Rob in photo above.
b fdbvu said on 18/Jun/17
thought he was 9ft.
Andrea said on 15/Jun/17
Ok but my question was a bit more specific: how much taller do you think he would be?
You yourself said that the 183.8 challenger guy can look close to Stephen in person but at the same time you said that even Dominic and Went looked close to him... BUT, still at the same time, you said that Amell looked taller than them!
One thing I'm quite sure of is that Big Al would be "easily" taller than all of them...
Editor Rob
Amell I feel has a fraction more, whether a big half inch is harder to say, but he seemed taller than both Wentworth/Purcell.

Of course, I could have under-billed his boots and they might have just made Amell seem a bit more like a 6ft 1 guy.
Lmeister said on 15/Jun/17
With Stan Wawrinka he doesn't even look like a full 6ft and Stan is a true 6 footer. Rob usually gives celebs a tad extra ;) Look at pics of him with R. Knepper and S. Wayne Callies both are actually shorter than Rob, but yet listed a smidgen taller.
Andrea said on 14/Jun/17
Rob, you still have Stephen Amell at 6'1 and Went/Dom at 6'0.5. How much taller did he look in person? Right around half an inch?
If so, "about 6'0.5" is definitely their best case scenario because I still think that Stephen is more a 184-5 guy than say 185-6 (which is what a 6'1 guy should be) and very likely closer to 184 than 185 at his low...
Editor Rob
I definitely thought Amell had a better chance of being near 6ft 1, I mean I have always said 6ft 0.75 may well be the best fit.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Jun/17
This guy has a chance of being 6'0.75" more so than Wentworth Miller for some reason.
Dmeyer said on 11/Jun/17

Balrog said on 6/Jun/17
Yeah Andrea, the more I think about it, he pushed too far. 1.5in is a considerable amount. If he claims 6'1'' would be fair and believable, but 6'2'' it's too much. I don't think claiming 'shoe height' is valid. We all know that only barefoot we get our real height.
Dmeyer said on 6/Jun/17
I see more 184cm 93-95kg like nearer 210 pound than 188cm 87kg
Andrea said on 6/Jun/17
"Thou shalt never claim height in shoes."
Or in big boots...
Anyway, you haven't answered... Do you know what height the 184 challenger claims? It's probably a tough question because you perfectly know how tall he measures but what would you have given him, if you didn't know that? 6'0.5?
As for Dom, I've just finished to rewatch the first season and there are a couple of scenes of him with Michael Cudlitz. I don't think they looked much different but I'd say that Michael looked SLIGHTLY taller than him...
Editor Rob
I'd have given the challenger over six foot but not as big as 6ft 1, 6ft 1/2 probably...I've never heard him claim any height.

Whereas the challenger who was 6ft 3 3/8th still says he was measured by someone else at 6ft 5...but hasn't taken up my offer!
Lmeister said on 5/Jun/17
Dominic could be even shorter than 184cm.

In these pics he looks marginally shorter than Stan Wawrinka(183cm). Both are wearing sneakers. Dominics shoes are Converse Star Players.

Rob, is your eye level low for your height? I mean, do you have a longer upper portion of head and eyes lower? This could impact how short someone feels I think, as you would have the eye level of a shorter person but a larger upper portion
Editor Rob
it's quite average range, although my eye-chin is a bit longer than average, so for my height my head is longer than the average 5ft 8 head by a fraction.
Peter 179cm said on 3/Jun/17
Considering his posture(and yours) i wouldn't guess him over 183-184 range. 6'0 1/4 for me is the best shout.
Hypado said on 2/Jun/17
Dominic is great actor, i love him and Wentworth. But, he lied about his height.
Andrea said on 2/Jun/17
To be honest, I think the only way he'd measure over 6'1 BAREFOOT is not that long out of bed... After a couple of hours, he may well measure 6'0.75 and then dip to around 184. I can buy that! I think he's got a lot more chance of 6'0.25 than 6'0.75 at his low but, as I said, 6'0.5 does seem the best shout!
Yeah, he doesn't exaggerate like other celebrities but 1.5 is still a pretty decent amount, especially in celebheights terms. Look at what happened to Big G... I understand those who are a bit over a mark and just round up to the "next" one. If a guy is say a bit over 6'1 at his low and just rounds up to 6'2, it's not a big deal. Still quite "imprecise" but it's quite natural. I wouldn't call him "liar" for that, unless he remarks the fact that he is the "full 6'2". 😁 But 1.5 inches... That's stretching things a little bit too much, IMO!
Rob, do you know what the 183.8 guy claims? An honest "6'0.5", "over 6'", "almost 6'1" or he claims an optimistic "6'2" too?
Look at Wentworth and Dominic with that "over 6' but not quite 6'1" guy you talked about a few months ago: Click Here
Dominic is standing a bit closer to the camera, I think, but they probably wouldn't be much different. πŸ˜‰
Editor Rob
it's always something I would consider: some actors genuinely do give a shoe height at times, and it can confuse the situation.

Thou shalt never claim height in shoes.

I thought he was taller than Wentworth Miller?
Editor Rob

Sammy Derrick said on 1/Jun/17
If he stood straight maybe 6'0.5(cm)
Balrog said on 1/Jun/17
Agree Andrea, 6'0.5" is probably the best listing. 6'0.25" - 6'0.75" is his range. I still think if he measured morning time, like 2 hours out of bed, and measured a bit over 6'1" he just rounded up. But yeah, he's putting himself a bit more of height but not exaggerating like Mark Pellegrino por example.
Andrea said on 1/Jun/17
Balrog, I think Wentworth looks slightly taller than Dominic with Rob but, as you say, Dominic is dropping some height here (but so is Rob, I think). Anyway, I certainly wouldn't use Rob's pictures to say who is taller because Rob's photos with celebrities very rarely reveal the true difference, right Rob? 😊
Rob said they looked very similar in person, so similar that you need to measure them both to say who is taller... That makes sense, to me!
I don't know about 6'0.75... I mean, have you seen him with Brandon Routh? Click Here Click Here Click Here
Do you really think he looks close to 6'1 with him? Also, bear in mind that Rob has met Brandon more than once and said he wouldn't give him more than 6'2.5. It's basically the same range he looked on PB next to Michael Rapaport, who I bet would be very similar to Brandon (and, since he has been mentioned, to Jack Coleman).
Those guys can really make him look closer to 6' than 6'1 (let alone 6'2), IMO! But 6'0.5 is overall a good shout, over 6' flat but not quite 6'1.
As for his claim, maybe he measured a bit over 6'1 IN SHOES and simply rounded up to the full 6'2 OR he truly got measured near 6'2... IN HIS PB BOOTS! Or it's just a BS claim because barefoot he is well under that mark! πŸ˜‰ People like him who are 6'-6'1 and claim 6'2 really skew other's perception of height. Just like those who are 5'6-5'7 and claim 5'8, those who are 5'10-5'11 and claim 6', those who are 6'2-6'3 and claim 6'4,... No wonder that some people truly think that 6' is average, LOL!
It's funny that Rob, right after meeting him, said that both Went and Dom looked min 183 and max 184 in person and not much different than Alex. The other day he said that 184.5 wasn't impossible. Now he even says that 6'0.75 is possible? One more week and you'll put him back to 6'1, Rob? 😁
I'm joking, I know you say that every celebrity you meet might turn out to be a bit taller (even if quite unlikely, I'd say) or shorter than what you thought they looked in person... Every celebrity. Apart from Jared Padalecki, of course! Jared is 6'4 and "100% guarenteed by Big Rob" not over that mark, right? πŸ˜›

one day I may end up getting a photo with Jared for the site, it might take another 10 years though!

I am glad I am not an autograph collector, rather I'm collecting photos...autographs can be more personable to attendees and offer some nice memories, but sometimes I really hope actors think about it a little and treat the signature itself with some respect.

The following autograph cost people Β£35 at that event: Click Here

Average height and slim said on 1/Jun/17
Still think Dom might edge out miller by half a cm
Dominic- 184.5
Went- 184
Bill fichtner- at first 6 foot was believable but now he's not over 5"11.5 (181.5 cm)
Amaury nolasco- 177cm
Rockmund Dunbar-within the 5"10 range, hmm in pb season 1+2 he looked about 6 or 7 cm shorter than Wentworth but in one scene with Nolasco he looked much taller and bigger framed the only explanation is bigger shoes? Might have to rewatch the episode.

Robert knepper- 174.5 - 175, properly same height as Sarah Wayne callies and Jodie Lynn o keefe.
Peter stormare- 187 cm (6"1.75)
Balrog said on 31/May/17
Rob does he had more footwear? He's dropping height in the pic, but I imagine you too... He looks taller than Wentworth next to you, maybe 6'0.75'' would be better? IMO I'm not surprised he's not 6'1''. On Prison Break he looked a bit shorter than Paul Adelstein, who I do believe is a legit 6'1'' (or even a smidge over) man. But if I have to bet, I'd put my money he's closer to 6'1'' rather than 6'0'' for most part of the day.

Regarding his claim, if he measured morning time he probably was over 6'1'' and decided to round up to 6'2''. Coleman downgraded his height probably for the same reason that Dominic talks about in the quote. It appears 6'2'' is the height where most actors are aware that they're getting too tall to play some roles.
Editor Rob
there's always a chance of 6ft 0.75 of course...when someone is measured, they can always give you a fraction surprise, sometimes a little taller or shorter than your guess!
jack said on 31/May/17
just hits it nowadays in ranges
Fez said on 31/May/17
@Editor Rob,

How big do u think his head is?
Because some of the comments think he has a large head while in this pic with u, His head doesn't seem that big!
Editor Rob
a bit over 9 inches, but he has a wider than average head.
Csimpson 6ft said on 31/May/17
He looks 6'0 flat with the lean Rob but if stood up straight 6'0.5 is believable for him, hes definitely no where near his 6'2 claim.
Shredder said on 31/May/17
Rob is right , it is pretty close between he and Wentwoth. So close that we don't know which would measure taller.
Jordan87 said on 31/May/17
lol at 6'2".
miko said on 31/May/17
I'd say with a guy like Purcell who seems pretty well grounded that his 6'2 claim is likely an 'in footwear' claim rather than a barefoot one, but you never know.
Johan said on 31/May/17
Looks around 6 foot here but obviously loosing a little. So he really is 184 cm same as Wentworth, why does he have to claim 6'2" though, he joins a long line of guys who do that ****.

Did he look taller in person than Stephen Amell?
Andrea said on 31/May/17
So you were a bit "shocked" when you met him up close and thought he wasn't more than "around 184 range"?
I would have been a lot more surprised if he looked a genuine 6'1 in person, to be honest!
You say he could pull off looking 6'1 on PB but do you really think he looked as tall as that next to guys like Michael Rapaport or even the other actors from the show you have already met, without considering the fact that he often has footwear advantage over his colleagues? I had the chance to rewatch a couple of episodes from the 4th season the other day and I reconfirm what I said: Michael can easily look 2 inches taller (in some scenes, even a bit more) than him!
I haven't seen Legends (and I probably never will) but, from the pictures I have seen of him with Brandon Routh, I certainly wouldn't have guessed him as tall as 6'1 either...
People like Josh Holloway, Obama or Jim Caviezel that look like the textbook example of 6'1, to me... In that case, yeah, I would be quite surprised if they looked under 6'1 in person! But Dom? Not really.
Editor Rob
yeah, Michael could seem near 2 inches taller than both Dom/Wentworth, he seems quite honest, it's the kind of height I'd have expected Jack Coleman to claim, because both Coleman/Dom claim 6ft 2, in person there's 2 inches between them...
berta said on 31/May/17
look s183 in the photo but i think 184 is a very good listing what he always have looked
HonestSlovene said on 31/May/17
Looks like a strong 183 cm with the lean. Probably 184 cm flat standing up straight. Never was 185 cm.
Andrea said on 31/May/17
Great, Rob! 😊
Yeah, it is a relatively good picture compared to John's! He only looks a couple of cms under your guess here... 😜
He does look around (and not over) 182 with you.
Johnny said on 31/May/17
Looks at least 6ft range in the photo.
World Citizen said on 31/May/17
Looks 5'11.75
Rory said on 31/May/17
Looks like he'd spent 15 hrs on a sunbed before this pic was taken.
Andrea said on 30/May/17
I thought 182.5 and 184.5 were the most unlikely (like near 0%) ranges, from what you have said... So he may, in fact, measure a good 1/4 inch taller than the 183.8 challenger? I'm surprised you haven't given him 6'0.75 then, considering that 184.5 is technically (very technically 😁) closer to that than 6'0.5 and that you generally go with the highest!
Editor Rob
well I wouldn't say he would measure 6ft 1 or just over 6ft, but somewhere around 6ft 1/2 range.
Andrea said on 30/May/17
Rob, if you say he didn't stand as good as Wentworth, that means that we should expect him to look 5'11-5'11.5 range AT MOST, next to you? πŸ˜‚
In the meanwhile, speaking IN PERCENTAGE, how likely are these ranges? 😊
A) 186.5cm/184.5cm
B) 186cm/184cm
C) 185.5cm/183.5cm
D) 185cm/183cm
E) 184.5cm/182.5cm
Editor Rob
looks a lot better than John did 😊
I think between A-C range would cover nearly 100% probability.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/17
I'd give Purcell an extra fraction even though he could look up to 2cm taller than Wentworth...
Dmeyer said on 29/May/17
He could have Lost 0,25 un from Peak height Γ’ge plus weight lifting
Animus said on 26/May/17
Ridiculous quote. He is not even that big. 6ft-6ft1 is the perfect height for a leading man in Hollywood.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/17
Miller being 184cm I can believe since Rob has met him but that doesn't justify Dominic getting a downgrade. I think he edged out Wentworth mostly and is 185cm range
sumdude said on 23/May/17
Routh(solid 189cm) easily hovers 5+cm over both him and Wentworth in pictures. I personally think 183-183.5 is spot on for purcell. When looking at a legit 184cm guy like Henry Cavill I start having doubts about Purcell's 184cm "at night"-height. Might be very bad posture, I dunno.
berta said on 23/May/17
by the way rob didnt you get a chanse to get a photo with him? ore was he dropping to muthc heioght, no meaning to put it up?
Editor Rob
he didn't stand as good as Miller, but still it's worth showing, I will put a few more photos up from that event.
berta said on 23/May/17
yes andrea 185 is to mutch for shore. this is the perfect listing for him. But this makes me think that Peter stormare maybe was a weaker 6 foot 2 guy at peak?
Andrea said on 22/May/17
Yeah, berta! Not a surprise at all... 😊
I always said that he didn't look a big 6'1 guy! Plus, the fact that Rob has him at 6'0.5 now probably means that 6'0.5 is his BEST case scenario. 183-4 range certainly seems more sensible, if you look at him with guys like Michael Rapaport and Brandon Routh!
berta said on 22/May/17
haha i knew it. This is what i have said all these years a strong 184 guy.184,5. Good listing either this ore 1/4 higerr. the 6 foot 1 was always to mutch. Great listing!!!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/May/17
Wow....just wow
Johnny said on 22/May/17
@Rob why did you downgrade him? Since you have mentioned in the past that he looked a decent 6ft 1 range and you would not guess him under 6ft 1.
Editor Rob
I think solid 1.5 inch boots on shows like Prison Break can help you look taller, I would have said he seemed to have an edge on Miller in PB, but then in person I couldn't say for sure who seemed taller, so maybe they are both very close...
opus said on 17/May/17
Check out the photo of him stood next to boxer Bryant Jennings 6'3''. You trying to tell me that theres only a 2" difference between them?
berta said on 13/May/17
its a robbery!!! that is one expensive photo!!! Well it would be great if you saw them i still think that he could be 1/4 under this listed height. This is very intresting to see what you will say if you really meet them :P
Editor Rob
yeah if you see these guys in person maybe they will be hard to pick apart height-wise...
Andrea said on 14/Apr/17
How much money do you need? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Is it still a possibility or you already ruled it out? If you already made up your mind, I won't insist πŸ™
Editor Rob
don't worry, if I can scrape money together in next 4 weeks I will try to get a ticket. It costs Β£120 just for the ticket to enter the event...then you are talking 115 for a photo with both of them...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/17
I think he edges Wentworth out slightly...
Andrea said on 13/Apr/17
So, is that a no??? 😭😭😭
If it's money that you need, I can help you out, financially πŸ€‘πŸ˜
That's a great occasion and two big names, at least from my point of view (I mean, I'd prefer you meet them rather than guys like Arnold, Sly or Brad Pitt, that are probably considered "big names" by most... Not by me 😁)
Editor Rob
of course I would love to meet these guys too!

These days, unfortunately it's tougher earning on the web with 1 site...I'm between a rock and a hard place.
The site won't earn more without a noticeable amount of extra traffic, and I am only managing to keep it steady these last 3 years.

I could add another advert (2 is enough though) or use silly affiliate programs - like grow taller 4 idiots - which I'd never do.

If I decide I need to create other sites, suddenly I won't have the time to continue moderating and updating this would suffer as a result.

I like the idea of a long-running site like this, with an ever-present Editor...

Of course I would appreciate any visitor help: Click Here 🀝 🀝
Andrea said on 13/Apr/17
Rob, speaking of Dom, I've read he's going to a UK event this May with Wentworth... Would be great if you could finally meet them and take a picture with both! Are you still "on eco"? I know you had to skip a few events because of the money, recently... I hope this is not the case, though... It would be a real shame! ☹
Editor Rob
financially having to watch the a prison break fan it is very tempting but the organisers...well, I can't say much about them, they got many good guests over 10 years...leave it at that!
berta said on 17/Feb/17
still think this guy is more of a 184 guy and 185 on a good day, maybe sam listing as wenthworth would be better. brandon routh looks almost 2 inches taller. and josh jolloway with 1 cm shoe advantage looked 1 inch taller
Andrea said on 31/Jan/17
Yeah, he does... But is a picture like that "reliable"? Even Amaury seems a good amount taller than him and many people are trying to say he's not over 5'9 on his page (I think he's taller than a guy like Robert, though). Honestly, when I first started to watch the show (a lot of years ago), I didn't pay much attention to height and Dom never really gave me a tall impression (like say a Josh Holloway)... In fact, I was quite surprised when I found out he was supposed to be 6'1 or even 6'2 online (before I heard of this site)! I still think he's not a big 6'1 guy but he probably isn't much under... Even if, I repeat it, guys like Brandon and Michael can look "well over" 1.5 inches taller than him! Maybe he's similar to a Stephen Amell, 184-5 range! This girl is surprised that he is tall in person: Click Here
Maybe you will meet him at some point, who knows...
Editor Rob
having a quite big head like Dom, doesn't really help him seem that tall.

yeah, it's interesting the interviewer said that.
Andrea said on 30/Jan/17
While you can say he doesn't look much over 6' at times, like he does at times with Brandon or Michael, 5'10-5'11 is a joke for him!
Editor Rob
even with say 3/4 inch more footwear, he Has a big advantage on Marshall...who is a more solid 5ft 5 guy
Jay said on 29/Jan/17
WRONG listing... gotta be. He was standing by 6'1" Eric Dane, Josh Holloway & Clive Standen at Comic Con. Purcell only looked 5'10-11 tops.
Andrea said on 26/Jan/17
Yeah, I know what you said about Arthur Darvill... It is true that Dominic looks "comfortably" taller than him in photos, he can look 1.5-2 inches taller, depending on the photo (certainly not over 2 inches, though)! But again the same Arthur doesn't look over 5'10.5 with you (even if it's hard to tell with that hat)... And I don't know what kind of footwear he wears on the show, I remember he used to wear quite big boots in PB!
Andrea said on 26/Jan/17
Another picture with Brandon: Click Here
Look how well Dominic is standing there... And it still looks more than just 1.5 inches, to me! Same thing with Michael Rapaport in PB, he looked noticeably taller than him! In fact, I honestly thought there was more chance Michael was over 6'3 than under but he did come out with 6'2-6'2.5... You said you wouldn't have guessed him under 6'1 but the more I look at him the more he gives a shorter impression than true 6'1ers! At the same time, I don't think a guy like Wentworth would measure under 184 (and can easily pull off 185) and it seems that most of the people think that Dom has the edge...
Editor Rob
Andrea, you could make a case for a weak 6ft 1 range...maybe his solid boots help him look taller at times. I did think compared to arthur darvill on the show he looked a couple of inches taller.
Andrea said on 25/Jan/17
Rob, is this really only a 1.5 inch difference (with Brandon)??? Click Here
I don't watch the show so maybe they could appear closer in other scenes but I have hard time to believe he's a big 6'1 guy most of the time, let alone his claim!!! Do you really think that he would be similar to Big Al, in person?
Editor Rob
I watched about half the season, I think he is close to 6ft 1, Routh generally looks at least 1.5 inches taller.
Truth11 said on 14/Oct/16
Same height as johnny messner who you have as being 182cm. I'd him 183cm.
Truth11 said on 14/Oct/16
This guy is 183-184cm barefoot. If you ever get a photo with him rob you'll see.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16
Yeah I'd go with C mainly but he sometimes can look B also. Wentworth is more of a D-E range guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/16
Rob, which of these would you pick for Wentworth and Dominic?

A) 188.5cm/186.5cm
B) 188cm/186cm
C) 187.5cm/185.5cm
D) 187cm/185cm
E) 186.5cm/184.5cm
Editor Rob
C range I think from seeing Legends of Tomorrow, I think he can look it between Routh and Darvill.
berta said on 29/Aug/16
i Always thought he was 1 cm shorter than wenthworth. i would say this guy is strong 184 guy
Christian-196cm (6ft5.25) said on 25/Aug/16
193lbs is nowhere near big for a 6ft2 guy. Don't have any idea what Dominic's talking about. Wrestler Seth Rollins is the same height as him and Seth even weighs more than him at 205lbs, yet he isn't considered as "big", just ripped.
Roy said on 15/Aug/16
In legends of tomorrow looks 6'1 for sure. Great and accurate listing for this guy.
Powerhouse said on 3/Aug/16
He is the most stocky looking 6'1 i've seen in movies. I guessed him well under 6'0.
Johan said on 28/Jul/16
Just goes to show how Tv makes people look bigger. In Prison Break I wouldn't have thought he was less than 200 pounds but if you watch him with Dave Batista he looks rake thin in comparison. Probably a shoe claim but I guess he is honest with his weight.

I would have thought he was 184-185cm myself. Wentworth Miller is also listed at 6ft0.75 in and at times he can seem the taller one and vice versa.
Andrea said on 26/Jul/16
Rob, i know you will say it's not an ideal photo but still... Look at Dominic with Josh Holloway: Click Here
Josh has footwear advantage, ok, but i bet that even barefoot he'd be easily taller than Dom!
Editor Rob
Dom might be giving up some footwear disadvantage, possibly a cm or so. Near the 187 / 185 guys beside him I think he holds up close to 6ft 1
Ice said on 14/May/16
I wouldnt agree with statement that men of his size are limited when it comes to leading roles because of their size . Someone like Tyler Mayne is definateley limited when it comes to movie roles and gets casted as the tough guys in the back or intimadating serial killers / crazy guys , because he is just really huge , but 6'1-6'2 and 190 ilbs is really not that big .
Ice said on 14/May/16
@ Rampage

I doubt hed be 188 cm out of bed ..
Andrea said on 2/Apr/16
Yeah, 182 is too low but also 186... would be too much for this guy! He doesn't look a mm over 6'1 with guys like Michael Rapaport and Brandon Routh, they really can make him look no more than 184! Better chance he is 184 than 186! And Ficthner isn't over 181-182...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
182cm is ridiculous. He's taller than William Fichtner who is listed at that mark (although the some insist he's a solid 6ft). Purcell is 185/186cm ramge
John said on 3/Mar/16
Dominic certainly doesn't tower over Annalynne Mccord, like a true 6'1" person does over a 5'6" person. On top of that, he's rocking a pair of thick boots. He's only about 182cm, give or take.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/16
Rob, how likely is 186cm for Purcell?
Editor Rob
he can pass for a decent 6ft 1 range
Lmeister said on 1/Mar/16
Only 193 pounds ~ 87.5kg. I would have guessed he weighs around 95kg. He is not as big as he looks on screen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Feb/16
Out of bed: 187-188cm
Before bed: 185-186cm
berta said on 26/Feb/16
i dont know why but i felt like he had better posture than miller. And that he want taller. Like he is 185 and miller 185,5. Stormare 188-9 ande the fbi 186
Andrea said on 7/Dec/15
Rob, do you think he might be shorter than 6'1?
It's been a long time since i saw PB and probably didn't pay much attention to height at that time... Actually i thought Wentworth was the taller one, but it seems many people agree it's quite the opposite!
Anyway, i've seen some pictures with Brandon where he can look 2 good inches shorter (at least)... Maybe, those are not what you'd call ideal photos but it's not a surprise to me. As i said on Michael Rappaport's page, he also made Dom look sub 6'1 on the show (in fact those two guys would probably measure very similar). 6' range is ruled out, right?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have guessed Purcell under 6ft 1, I think they were pretty close, but when standing tall I think Dominic might still measure a little taller.
Tunman said on 26/Sep/15
6'1 seems fair,quite similar to Miller,actually quite hard to tell who is bigger without measurement
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Sep/15
I wouldn't call 6ft2, 193lbs that big
Andrea said on 21/Aug/15
Thanks...Btw, here's another guy who says that actors are shortish! Rob, what do you think about it? Why so many people who work in "Hollywood" always mention the fact that the most of the actors are short, when, if you take a look at this site, it seems the opposite?
Editor Rob
maybe they exaggerate to make themselves seem taller. But any guy who is 6ft 1 is above average, so naturally will feel that a large proportion are smaller...that's no surprise, the average is still 5ft 9-10 range.
Andrea said on 20/Aug/15
Rob, could you add the claim, please? You yourself said you're grateful to people who find celebrities' claims but you seem to ignore it at times...
Editor Rob
it's at the top
Andrea said on 18/Aug/15
Good find, Rampage! Rob, you should add the claim to the top...
Clearly not 6'2, though! 6'1 at most! Just looks too "short" next to Michael Rapaport, who himself claims 6'2, to be that tall! I watched PB a lot of time ago but i remember Rapaport looked noticeably taller than him!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/15
Click Here

Rob, he claims 6ft2, 193lbs in this NY Times interview from 2008.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/14
Gives a shorter impression than Miller because he's bigger framed.
184.3cm said on 25/Oct/14
I thought this guy was shorter. Saw a film with him the other night alongside Dave Batista and he was couple inches shorter. I thought he was 183cm max.
Dmeyer said on 10/Jul/14
In good shots he can look 1cm taller than wenty
yalo said on 18/Dec/13
i would say hes 184cm he looks the same height as wentworth miller sometimes even smaller or sometimes slightly taller
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/13
"Dominic Purcell's height is 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"

Claimed 6ft2 on the audio commentary for Prison Break and can look near it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/12
Looked at least this height with Jason Statham in Killer Elite.
Editor Rob
he was in an episode of castle and had a mugshot image, maybe a little over 6ft 2 mark in whatever footwear.

Nah i was standing next to him at gym when he was on the Gold coast at the sheraton mirage hotel gym. he had the same runners on. he is exactly my height of 182cm maybe even 1cm shorter

Great height for a man.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 1/Aug/11
Rob is right! Wentworth is 6'0.75, Dominic a bit taller so 6ft1 is right! no more! Also because in prison break he looks at least two inches shorter than Michael Rapaport who is 6ft3!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/11
Looks 186cm...
Big MIke said on 22/Feb/11
Yea I actually thought he was 6ft only I mean in Blade I thought Wesley was 5 ft 11 but actually he is 5 ft 8 he got dwarfed by Purcell If he is 6 ft 1 when he turned into his demon self in Blade he must have stood about 6 ft 4
Juno said on 21/Jan/11
The first time i saw him on prison break I thought that he was shorter like in the 5'9-5'10 range. But then a few episodes later I was stunned when he was standing next to wentworth miller and hr seemed taller by like .5 inches. TV can be so deceiving at times.
Hugh 190cm said on 4/Jun/09
Andrea, 6ft1.5 is tall. 6ft and over is where being tall oficially starts.
ANDREA [ITA] said on 3/Jun/09
so there in america a 6ft1.5 man is not very tall like here in italy. in fact, dominic is often overcome by others even if he's that tall. here in italy we have an actor who is 1.90 m tall and he always he's the tallest one... that doesn't happen with dominic...
Hugh 190cm said on 3/Jun/09
Andrea, He's taller than Wentworth Miller by about 0.5 inch. Watch season 1,2 and 3 and he always has the edge on Miller.

how can you say that dominic purcell is 186-187 cm. in prison break he's always shorter than wentworth miller for 2-3 cms... so in my opinion he's max 1.84. he doesn't appear much tall. he looks only 5 cms taller than robert knepper and michael rapaport who is 1.91 has at least 8 cms on him. watch prison break well or buy a pair of glasses!

Dominic and miller are the exact same height with miller having a slight advantage.. but Dom can somehow look taller sometimes because he's kind of bigger and has a very very good posture compare to miller, especially sitting down. But truth is miller is 6'1 and purcell about 6'1 or a little smaller
Hugh 190cm said on 13/Apr/09
Love this guy in Prion Break. I'd say he's close to 6ft2 barefoot. 187cm.
Hugh 190cm said on 31/Mar/09
6ft1 at least. Probably closer to 6ft2.

Lmeister says on 11/Nov/08
He is around 6ft-6ft1. He has been described with bot heights in quite a few articles. I don't think that he is really that built. He just has a thick neck and big bones, but his shoulders aren't that wide.

Very true. I agree completely.
purcell6'2?noway said on 13/Mar/09
Actually im a big prison break fan and watching the fourth season i though he didnt looked that tall.. looks like 5'10 5'11 next to sucre in season 4.. but he looks pretty tall in other season but i dont know i would put money on the fact miller is 6'1 and purcell probably 5'11 or 6'
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 23/Feb/09
I remember in an episode of Prison Break, one of the witnesses described him as 'a tall man, 6 foot 1-2'.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 23/Feb/09
Looks 2-3 inches taller than 5ft11 Wade Williams. I'd say closer to 6ft2.
steph said on 26/Jan/09
I thought he would 5 10
miko said on 22/Jan/09
Must be the light, Purcell still has plenty of hair. Pics taken in late 08 prove it.

Could be just over 6"1.
glenn said on 22/Jan/09
taken may 2008.didnt notice that until you mentioned it.
Mark said on 21/Jan/09
yeah.. hes definately 6'1. Glenn, he looks like he's going bald in that pic, because he's got hair at the sides but not on top of head. Did you notice that when you met him? when was this pic taken?
Hugh said on 16/Jan/09
No, Dominic Purcell is broad shouldered. He's bulkier than Wentworth. Wentworth is leaner and has a longer body.
Hugh said on 14/Jan/09
He's looks quite big on Prison Break. I think he's maybe 186cm.
Hugh said on 4/Jan/09
Looks close to 6ft2. An upgrade rob???? Looks pretty broad on Prison Break.
Mr. R said on 28/Dec/08
In this month's issue of one of the Mens' magazines (maybe Men's Health), He is the cover story. Inside, the author describes him as about 6-2 and 200 lbs.
adam said on 14/Dec/08
He is muscular and has impressive arms but doesn`t have broad shoulders. I`d say Miller has wider shoulders than this man.
Hugh said on 5/Dec/08
Between 6ft1 and 6ft2. Quite broad. Probably weighes over 200lbs.
anonymous said on 28/Nov/08
In one of the episodes, he was described as a tall man who is 6 foot 1-2. 186cm is quite accurate.
Anonymous said on 28/Nov/08
when he stood right next to fichtner who is 184cm he looked significantly taller i say he is 187cm at the most
adam said on 28/Nov/08
Lmeister, you are right on: He has a thick neck and a muscular built but DOESN`T have broad shoulders.
Hugh said on 11/Nov/08
6ft1-6ft1.5 is more accurate. Miller is around that height aswell.

wentworth and purcell are both 6 ft 1 fact
Lenad said on 1/Nov/08
Brad hes closer to the camera.
adam said on 25/Oct/08
6-1 minimum.
Gago said on 25/Oct/08
Dominic is 6'1 possibly 186cm, I see him a lot in Gold's Gym in Venice.
Brad said on 24/Oct/08
He's not even standing up straight and he looks 6' 3".
klem said on 24/Oct/08
He has such a big hed anf jaw and neck, looks huge, not just tall even thoug he is not so buff, he is just very broad built, mesomorph with very musculine features.
Big King said on 24/Oct/08
Yes, Purcell is 6'1".
David said on 23/Oct/08
His head is enormous hahah. To me he looked about half inch taller than wentworth miller.
D. Ray Morton said on 23/Oct/08
Looks pretty big here (my guess, 6'1" plus - and a BUILT 6'1" plus at that), even taking into consideraton that he is markedy closer to the lens than Glenn. Hell, he looks pretty big even compared to the other airbrushedly-rugged amazonian supermodels in Ratnerland.
Elburg said on 23/Oct/08
Purcell is a stocky 6-1er, like Reed Diamond, so they seem to be only average height.
Derek said on 23/Oct/08
Purcell is closer to the camera. He looks more 6'0"-6'0.5".
Alucard said on 23/Oct/08
Wentworth got a different body type aswell. Purcell has a huge, thick neck which gives the illusion of him being stocky. He looks 185.
Anonymous said on 23/Oct/08
Actually, I think Wentworth gives the illusion of being taller than Dominic based on the Glenn pictures. Odd. Anyway, looks 6'1" here but hard to tell how much he's leaning.
miko said on 23/Oct/08
He's looking 6"1 here, similar to Wentworth with Glenn, but Purcell is closer to the camera. 6"1 it is.
The Horse of FUNK said on 23/Oct/08
This guy is a strong 6'1". Give him either 6'1.25" or 6'1.5". He looks a solid 186-187cm guy to me.
frank P said on 8/Oct/08
Only going by TV & films? I'm WAY off! I thought Purcell was about 5"9-5"10. But...your ALL saying 6"1 so it must be true.
adam said on 28/Sep/08
Did you downgrade him? I remembered you had him as 6-1 and 1/4...

Just watched the second season of Prison Break and he looked 6-1 or maybe a bit more in all cases except one -when he travelled with his son in the series (LJ, cant remember the actors name) the difference between those two looked ENORMOUS! I could swear that the little guy was about a foot shorter than Purcell. Then I remembered that the LJ actor was supposed to be like 5-6, which would made Purcell minimum 6-4, and watching those scenes where they walk in the desert even taller!

But the man was shorter than Adelstein, Stormare and so on so that`s it. But if you have a chance, watch the second season where Burrows rescues his son! Watch when they walk together -the little guy comes to his shoulder height!
chris said on 22/Jun/08
In the commentary of the first episode of Prison Break, Paul Scheuring said to Dominic he looked about 6'2" and Dom said he was.

in pics he can look 0.5 to 1.25 in over miller he makes miller look 6 ft flat in pics but i guess better posture for dominic so maybe 2 cm btween them i think 6'1to 6'1.25 for dominic and miller 6 ft to 6'0.25 for the people who thinks miller is taller look at getty images you will see purcell 3 cm taller than miller
dmeyer said on 8/Oct/07
if yoy look at pb dominic alwais has 1 cm on miller somtimes 2 cm and sometimes they look the same pavement shoes posture....
klem said on 28/Sep/07
he is a typical mesomorph look how big his body is compared to legs. wenthworth is same height witl longer limbs.
Lisa said on 21/Sep/07
dominic admitted on the special features in the series one dvd that he was 6 foot 2 inches I heard from his mouth???
anonymous said on 15/Aug/07
Lol, Domonic's legs are like 2 feet apart. He would be at least 2 inches taller if standing upright. Plus Wentworth is leaning on one leg, and when you posture up on one leg you can cheat an extra half inch that you don't actually have when standing on two feet.
Anonymous said on 7/Aug/07
people that say purcell is shorter than miller should get glasses they might look close but dominic has the edge 0.5 to 1 in
dmeyer said on 29/Jul/07
can look 6'1.25 next to miller
dmeyer said on 16/Jul/07
in md pics dominic looks a full in over miller they seem to have the same shoes the differance seems 0.75 in aleast maybe 0.25 floor advantag
dmeyer said on 16/Jul/07
i agree purcell might be 6'1 before bed and like 6'1.75 out of bed
Anonymous said on 21/May/07
Actually, Dominic is about 1/2 inch shorter than Wentworth Miller, if Dominic is 185 then Miller must be 186 or no less. If you want to compare the heights, you have to be fair, so take a look at the following image, it show the full length of both stars standing next to each other, both appear t wear the same kinds of shows, and the picture was taken from a straight angle for easy comparison:

dodgy ground, dodgy stances...dodgy comparison, sorry buddy, they are pretty close though.

Dominic is taller than Miller, and has looked that way in every picture I've seen of the two, together:

Steve said on 10/May/07
His head is disproportionately big compared to his body. I watched a couple of episodes of the series "John Doe" and in some scenes he looked like a lollipop to me :-)
