Timothy Olyphant will edge him out a little, like 5'11.5-5'11.75" a shout. He may not be over 182cm.

Rob he looks the same sought height range as David beckham in my opinion

He usually looks about 6 ft can look a tall or a weak 6er.
He did look under sized with clint who was well over 50 at the time..
He might be a weak 6 fter who is measured by his hair like cage.

Check out pics of him with Morgan Freeman he is at least 3 inches shorter. This guy is max 5ft11.

He isn't the same height as Clint Eastwood, found a photo of both in 2007... Or did Eastwood shrunk even more in 9 years?
Unbelievable, he is almost 10 years younger than my grandad and he looks like that... I want to know the secret for the future!

Google him with Will Farrell and you will see Farrell is at least 4inches taller.If Farrell is 6f3 McDermott is max 5ft11.Also in in the line of fire Clint looked max 3 inches taller than him,making Clint max 6ft2 aged 61.McDermott is not 6ft,if he is then Farrell is 6ft4 or 6ft5 .

Dylan McDermott height: 5ft 11.75in (182 cm)

Like Christian Bale, Chris Evans and Nicolas Cage, a weak 183 cm - 6ft.

@Editor Rob: Alright. I guess I haven't seen him enough then, because based on what I've seen I'd put him nearer 181.
In the pic with "unidentified hottie" I'd have guessed him near 6ft purely based on stature, but how a person looks alone in a photo (or in this case, with "height unknown") is never good enough. Better watch some more McDermott films...
[Editor Rob: 182 is a good possibility, 181 I'm not sure he'd be just that low.]
cole said on 13/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: Haha yeah! But seriously though, what's the lowest you'd argue for Dylan?
[Editor Rob: wouldn't argue much under 6ft maybe 182]
Darren510 said on 12/Oct/14
5'11.5 to 6'0.

In this pic does not look anything under 6ft
cole said on 12/Oct/14
Nice update to his page, does him more justice. Who's he with in the pic Rob?
[Editor Rob: not sure,but she looked pretty!]
cole said on 11/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: Could you add 'American Horror Story', 'Olympus Has Fallen' and 'The Campaign' at the top? And maybe have another look at his height when you get a chance. At least he doesn't look a 6 footer to me next to Ferrell and Galifianakis.
cole said on 1/Jun/14
Looks 4 inches shorter than Will Ferrell in some shots, and that shower scene in 'The Campaign'... I mean unless it was fudged in some way I can't see him a whole lot over 180-181 cm range. I'm not saying he's definitely a flat 5'11 guy, but I'm having a hard time believing he's a legit 6 footer. At least to me he's never appeared that tall.
Afg said on 21/May/14
In films like "the campaing" and "the perks of being wallflower" he looks like a 5 ft 11 guy.
Angel9 said on 27/Oct/13
He was clearly about an inch shorter than Cole Hauser in Olympus has fallen.
cole said on 8/Aug/13
@James: Exactly. In The Campaign, in the "shower-scene" with a presumably barefoot Will Ferrell, Dylan walked into the shower in a full suit, most likely in dress shoes, and still looked about 3-4 inches shorter than Will. Will was closer to the camera, so it should about make up for the footwear of Dylan. I think 5'11 is more his range. I haven't seen much of his other stuff though, so I can't be sure.
James said on 22/Jun/13
@Cole Couldn't agree more, definetly looks more like a 5ft 11 guy than 6ft after watching The Campaign.
cole said on 11/Jun/13
He was a tad shorter than Jason Sudeikis in The Campaign, who is most definitely NOT 6'1, as he is nowhere near as tall as Bill Hader, who IS a legit 6'1. He comes across as a solid 5'11 guy to me (Jason), 180-182 cm range, and McDermott was a good 1-2 cm shorter in that particular film.

On the Olympus Has Fallen website, McDermott's character is listed as 6'0". However, the site also says Aaron Eckhart's character is 6'0".
Balrog said on 26/Jan/13
He had easily 4in if not more over John Heard in Edison. 6 foot would be my rough guess but I haven't seen a lot of him.
gsbr said on 13/Oct/12
Near the end of The Campaign trailer, he's standing next to the 6'1'' Jason Sudeikis and Sudeikis looks an inch taller. So I'd say McDermott is 183 cm.
Len said on 13/Sep/12
Looks 5'11". Nothing wrong with that.
Jake: 1.82 m--1.83 m--1.84 m said on 28/Jul/12
He looks a strong 183 cm (6' 0") in American Horror Story.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 24/Nov/11
Here's a legit 6'
Carpenter said on 14/Aug/11
Just watched In the Line of Fire and thought that he looked substantially smaller than Clint Eastwood. Don't see how he could be 6'.
James said on 17/Jul/11
looked around this with then 6'3 Clint Eastwood in the Line of Fire.
snap said on 16/May/07
5-11 maybe, I'm watching the messengers asw, he's def. not over 6ft
Height Tracker said on 19/Dec/06
Clint Eastwood looked at least 3 inches taller than him in "In the Line of Fire" which was made in 1991. Not sure about lifts for McDermott though.
Anonymous said on 27/Sep/05
platt looks more then 4.5 inches taller then perry, more like over 5 inches taller. that guys big! 3 inches is only 7.5cm, there is more then that, thats for damn sure. Thos guys look like 5"10 compared to platt, if hes 6'3"
Mr. R said on 27/Jun/05
My experience with Dylan puts him just over 5-10. I saw him at an actor's event, and he walked right past me, and was at least an inch shorter. He was also very, very skinny!
RR said on 27/Jun/05
Well, I sold him a video once and he was my height or a little taller and I'm 5'6". I don't know if he's wearing lifts or what in that picture he is probably 5'8"-5'9" at the most. Super nice guy too, needed to buy a video of a movie he starred in and had never seen.
Viper652 said on 15/Jun/05
This guy looks no more then 5-10 from seeing him in Pics. His height needs to be changed
Mr. R said on 5/Apr/05
I saw Dylan at an actor's event 2 years ago. He is about 5'10.5". He walked right past me and was at least an inch shorter.
