Looks 5'11.5" range in the pic, although the camera positioning isn't that good.

I think he may be 6ft flat today at 70. Definitely a good chance he's shipped more than 1in.
Which is why I'm giving him 6ft1½ peak (or alternatively 6ft1⅜)

He look 5"11' in this picture next to Rob maybe a little more because he seem have a long forehead

Rob he have had 184 listing for 10 years now. Dont you Think if he lost 1 cm already at that age then he must have lost 2 more cm now when he is in the height loss age. Eitrher that ore he was never taller than 184 and is 183 now

Might be 6ft flat today but at least 6ft1-1½ peak (2-3in on Benedict/Mr. T and near 2in on Peppard who may not have been quite 6ft by then). Could look 6ft2 at times also

He looked 2in taller than an older George Peppard.

In the pic with Rob, he looks like nothing more than 5-10, and I am accounting for him slouching.

He looks a bit like Bill O'Reilly.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/12
186-187cm peak. Just watch the A-Team 2in on Peppard who was by the point not quite 6ft

This guy looks a lot like Kelsey Grammar and the face length.

he is not close to 6'2-i think he is more like 6'0.5-6'1.5.
said on 3/Sep/11
Doesn't look much taller when was this picture taken Rob? because if its a few years back he could of lost even more height making him 6'0 now.
[Editor Rob: 5 years ago that photo was taken.]

185 peak, 183 or 184 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/11
186cm(6"1.25) in the 80s...always looked 1 or 2 inches than Peppard

Guyfrommars, i remember that ep! He has Frakes portrayed in the holodeck as being a midget (not a dwarf), and Sirtis rationalizes it as being due to Frakes' towering physique.
Throughout the show, Frakes always appeared to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 2.5-3 inches taller than Schultz. However, TNG was always rather good at hiding the height differences between the actors. For instance, they hid the difference between Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes rather well, concealing around 2 inches. And with Levar Burton, they managed to never make Burton seem the full 9 inches shorter that he is.

In one episode of TNG his character was afraid of Frakes' towering 6'4" height. In reality, he was not much shorter.

i have read somewhere that Mr.T is actually 5'11, but im not sure how accurate that is.
said on 5/Feb/09
how the heck is Mr. T 6'1"? Dwight Schultz (Murdock) actually is 6'1" and he stood taller than BA
Jason W. said on 23/Jan/09
i never really thought of "howling mad Murdock" being that tall, but i guess he is. lol im really looking forward to "The A Team" the movie coming out soon. :)
Sam said on 20/Jan/09
He looks bizzarely like Bob Hope in the photo above.

Legend, 6ft 2
Mr. T said on 17/Jan/09
the crazy foo is 6'1" man I know I used to work with him on the A-Team.
Paddington said on 15/Jan/09
I remember on ST:TNG he really dwarfed the rest of the cast. Maybe Picard, Data, and the others need a downgrade?
EllisM said on 15/Jan/09
Crazy Murdoch doesn't even stand 6 feet there and that's not taking account he's noticeably nearer the camera compared to Rob!
Anonymous said on 15/Jan/09
i like this guy, however a guy that was 6'2 in his life would not look this short compared to 5'8. Rob has it right 6'1 peak height
Markus said on 15/Jan/09
Wow, I almost wouldn't recognize him as Murdock...The weird thing is, I thought he was getting bald in 80's, but seems to have quite some hair nowadays...
Hugh said on 27/Nov/08
Maybe 6ft2 in his prime. He towered over Mr. T and looked a good 2 inches taller than Peppard who may possibly have lost height be the time of the A-team.
Hugh said on 4/Sep/08
Dwight is closer to 6ft2.
Daniel said on 11/Jun/08
He looked taller than that in the A-Team. About 1.87m, almost 10 cm taller than Mr. T
LugNut said on 4/Jun/08
Dwight was the tallest of the A team, and I was watching a few episodes and he does look tall in most scenes, he looks to be a solid 6'1 for sure. Great actor very funny guy, he should be in more films.
dicky curtis said on 11/May/08
in one episode on the a team when he is in a phone booth he himself said 6ft tall. but he looks taller then hannibal listed as 6 ft but not much. so 6.1 seems right to me
nicole said on 24/Mar/08
To me looking more like strong 185cm when i saw him in 2007. Yes he must have lost an inch.
said on 24/May/07
seemed 6`1.5 next to jonathan frakes
[Editor Rob: he was looking more 183-4cm range when I saw him in 2006. Might have lost 1/2 inch.]
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
Bleemo is right. At times he could look 6-2, other times only 6-0.
stan said on 11/Sep/06
I've seen him 10 feet from me, looked about 6'2
Bleemo said on 10/Sep/06
Wahey howlin mad murdock, yeah I agree he is definately not 6'2 he could scrape this height though due to his horrible posture. I noticed on that Star Trek though that he suddenly had normal posture again.
I've been reading a lot about the A-team recently and in summary George Peppard had a lot of sway with the production team. Including getting rid of the first woman that worked with them because he didn't like her. Anyway Since George was the second tallest maybe he insisted that Dwight Stoop a little so George could still look pretty tall? The reason I say this is because he always stoops down when standing with the A-team, but in other shots just with the supporting cast he could look tall.
Another interesting tidbit I uncovered was that Tim Dunigan the first man to play face was considered too young but also too tall to play Face as he towered over Mr T.
