An episode in community describes his character as 5'10"
Jake Cam said on 30/Apr/20
I believe a little above 5'9.5

For me, recently getting into Community, this is 1/2 inch too generous. I know Mchale wore built up shoes to appear even taller than his 6ft 3.5in height, but sometimes there is easily a heads difference between Glover and him. He has a big old head, too. I really cannot see above 5ft 8in for Glover/CG at all. 5ft 11.5in Pudi always appears taller than him, too.

Cool guy, cool height! 🥊

@Rising: I agree with what you said. CG may be around your height if I had to guess. Looks like 5’8-5’8.5 range imho

Yeah, if Glover is 5'8.5" as he's listed, Jamie looked about how you'd expect a 5'9" guy in boots to look with Glover in flat loafers.

If you're wondering why Jamie Foxx appeared so much taller than Glover, well look at this shoes lol: Click Here

From what I've seen. I'd say 173 cm is closer.
said on 6/Jun/18
I think Jamie Foxx is more than 5'9 because he seems to have at least an inch on Donald Glover in this picture... unless Glover is under 5'8.5 or Jamie was wearing thick boots: Click Here

I don’t think he’s beyond 172 cm
Rafael said on 28/May/18
Compared to others, seems not too far off 5'11"
;) said on 16/May/18
he doesnt look 5'9 i think 5'8 fits him
Zampo said on 13/May/18
175 cm when he stands at his tallest I think. Maybe 5'8.75, however seen him look as low as 173 cm to be honest. 5'8.5 is probably the safest mark to list him at.

I was wondering about this cuz if Han and Lando aren't too far in height it woulda been nice if he wasn't far in height with the actor playing Han although the they're much shorter actors

I just don't buy under 5'9, and he looks AT LEAST that mark. This video gives me a 5'10 vibe of Glover: Click Here
Why would his agency list him over an inch taller than what he actually is? Sure, he might not be the full 5'10 but at least in the 5'9 range. I feel like he needs a re-consideration, especially now when Solo A Star Wars Story is coming very soon, so you can compare him to Woody Harrelson and Alden Ehrenreich.

Rob, will you ever add him to the Star Wars celebrity list? He is going to be young Lando Calrissian.
Yes I've done it now!

He is shorter than 5'9 in your Picture with Favreau.( Assuming Favoreau is 6'0)
5'8.25-5'8.5 is more accurate with him.
said on 28/Apr/18
Rob, Glover is 5'9 flat. Look at this Picture With 6 foot Favreau: Click Here
Sometimes he can look that mark.
haxxx said on 22/Apr/18
Next to Jamie Foxx who is a legit 5'9, probably 5'9.25 he looked in the 5'8 range. This listing is fair.
Jer said on 8/Apr/18
On a good day w good shoes I think he's about 5'10.
Canson said on 24/Feb/18
Hmmm? He doesn’t even look this tall at times tbh
Phill said on 6/Feb/18
Saw a picture with him and 5'9 actor, Jamie Foxx, at the Grammys. He looked about 5'7.5.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming they showed his character's ID and it said he was 5'10"...I concur,this is weird cause he's barely taller than Tom Holland whose height is anything from 5'6-5'7

Man, thought he was at least 5'10. Prob a weak 5 foot 9.
Cameron said on 12/Sep/17
@Jman Garfield is slouching pretty bad in that picture, and Glover is closer to the camera. Not a great photo for judging height.
Jman said on 23/Aug/17
I think 5"9.5 is his height, 5"8 looks very unreasonable. In the photo with Garfield he's only an inch shorter than 5"10.5 Andrew.
Realist said on 17/Aug/17
Gambino is 5'8 he does videos with other short rappers people like 5'11 Frank Ocean and Isaiah Rashad are taller than 70% of other rappers and short rappers get more collabs and exposure than taller ones. Chance is almost 5'9 like Kanye West
Chris said on 30/Jul/17
Everything about this guy's body type screams 5'10 -- but he's 5'9..
in truth, it isn't a huge difference, but it's quite odd how people can look their height or taller/shorter
Max said on 8/Jul/17
He definitely looks like a guy who's 5'8-5'9. At most he's a weak 5'9, but he could go low to 5'8

OK so here's Gambino with Aziz Ansari who's in the 160s.
That height difference between Ansari and Gambino says he's no more than a strong 5'8.
Now this is Glover with Andrew Garfield who is around 5'10-5'11.
Gambino and Garfield both have pretty bad posture here, but Garfield seems to be slouching more. Pretty sure Gambino's 5'8 max.
Cameron said on 26/Mar/17
I wonder how tall Danny Pudi is. He's listed as 6ft but I don't think he really is. Looks more like a weak 5'11" to me. I think if that's the case Donald Glvoer is in the 174cm weak 5'9" range.

Glover is barefoot, if Fallon 1m82, I would guess he's 6 ft 1 with his shoes. It seems there is a 6 inches difference between them, so Donald musn't be taller than 5 ft 7, don't you think, Rob ?
Editor Rob: I would have thought nearer 4 inch than 6 inch, he'd be at the end of Fallon's nose I feel for a 6 inch difference 🤥🤥
Notsure said on 12/Dec/16
To me I'd guess he's a weak 5'9", maybe scrapes 5'9" out of bed.
5ft10guy said on 17/Sep/16
this guy is realistically 5ft7-5ft8 and 5ft10 to even 5ft9.75 for chance .He looks small does'nt look average height
Max said on 25/Aug/16
How come he looked so small on Jimmy Fallon?
Sean said on 24/Aug/16
Honestly, I always thought 5'8" range for Childish. He didn't seem to have two inches on Levar Burton on Community.
2pac said on 23/Jul/16
idk who he is, i know childish gambino though..
said on 1/Jul/16
This is wrong,Donald is like 5ft7-5ft6.Chance isnt even taller then Kanye West.How can a 5ft11 man look exactly the same height as Kanye . He must be leaning pretty low ,even then it doesnt matter his proportions and his build doesnt say tall.
said on 1/Jul/16
Here he is with 5'9" Adam Scott and 5'8.75" Nick Kroll. I guess he really is 5'9" range. Click Here

John said on 1/Jul/16
not sure on 5'9, maybe more 5'8.5"
JB said on 1/Jul/16
I always thought he was shorter than this but I suppose it makes sense, but only a weak 5'9" I reckon. He looked shorter on community because of his tall co-stars. I think he was also mentioned to be 5'10" in an episode but that is probably his height with good shoes on.
TJE said on 1/Jul/16
I thought he'd be 5'8.5 as looked an easy 2-3 inches shorter than Chance the Rapper, but he was downgraded to a strong 5'10. Either way there's way more than 3 cm between them.
Charizard said on 30/Jun/16
this is arguable with some people sadly. He looks quite tall during his live acts but the on reason he looks so tall is his build making him look beyond 5'9
A2Z said on 29/Jun/16
I actually thought he was 5'9.5" overall?
chrisi said on 29/Jun/16
Finally you did Donald thank you very much rob! I would also say that he is a strong 175cm. He looks exactly this height on community when he is around Danny pudi.
Jackson said on 29/Jun/16
Right off the bat, no way this guy is 5'9
5'8 at the most
AJ said on 28/Jun/16
This listing looks reasonable he can look anywhere between 5'9-5'9.5.
Sam said on 28/Jun/16
Thought he already had a page for some reason...thought he was shorter than this but didn't watch enough of Community to have a strong opinion on it.
MD said on 28/Jun/16
He's honestly something of a chameleon, to me. I've seen him look at tall as nearly 5'10" and seen him look a weak 5'9". He strikes me as a listing where you're going to need quite a few good pictures to nail down.
