Yeah that can't be right. On Better Call Saul he still looks at least 6ft3

Making 6ft2 William Hurt look under 6ft

That photo with Tim Robbins is quite scary, he looks under 6ft2!

Rob, could that be the case now that Ed has lost even more height?
Editor Rob
I don't think he looks under 6ft 2, but barely over it that moment. Ed does wear vans at events I've noticed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/20
Begley - 192.6cm
Morse - 193.3cm

Begley Jr. is not the tallest 6’4” guy I have ever seen. However, I think he might have just reached the full 6’4” at peak. In any case, 6’3.75” is still not a bad peak estimate for this actor. Goldblum edged out Begley Jr. in Transylvania 6-5000.
Treyy3 said on 13/Aug/20

What would you say is the difference in height between Ed and Tim?

Editor Rob
about 3 inches smaller there.

Rob I watched a film recently with goldblum and Ed from 1985.

I think it’s fair too say there looked a 0.5 inch difference between the 2 men. So if goldblum was just 6’4.25 then 6’3.75 could be arguable for a leak Ed perhaps?

That said goldblum did seem too have a thicker hairstyle in that movie
Editor Rob
Jeff definitely is the taller, 1/4 to 1/2 inch probably
Scott Gun said on 15/Oct/19
Sam, Ed Begley, Jr. doesn’t look like his father because Ed Begley, Jr. was adopted.

Towered val kilmer
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Aug/19
John Carroll Lynch is obviously taller. John 191cm seem legit.
berta said on 15/Mar/19
also i dont think he measures under 191 today. 1/4 over 6 foot 3 today. weak 6 foot 4 peak
berta said on 3/Nov/18
i think david morse could have been a small fraction taller than him at peak. he was maybe 3 mm under 193 and morse 3 mm over.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/17
He still looks this today and he's closing in on 70...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/16
Ed Begley Sr. I think was about 5ft8 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
Morse and Begley looked about the same in St. Elsewhere. Noticeably the two tallest guys on the show...
CNROM89 said on 17/Aug/16
He looked 1 inch shorter than David Morse in St.Elsewhere. İf Morse is 6'4 he is 6'3,25.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/16
Odenkirk is 175-176cm.
Too Tall One said on 29/Feb/16
I met Ed in LA in the late '90's he is a legit 6'4". I am 6'7" and he was shorter then I. My brother is 6'5" and Ed was only a little shorter then him.
Klistermies said on 23/Feb/16
This cannot be right, in Better Call Saul he's almost 20 cm taller than Bob Odenkirk, and Bob is 183.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/16
His dad was only 5ft7 apparently
Shadow2 said on 20/Aug/15
David Ogden Stiers was no more than 6' 3.5", so would agree with that comparison with Ed.
Anonymous said on 16/Aug/15
Begley was exactly the same height as David Ogden Stires in the season 8 MASH episode "Too Many Cooks"
Shadow2 said on 17/Jul/15
On his TV series "St Elsewhere", Ed always seemed about half an inch shorter than legit 6' 4" co-star David Morse, even in publicity pictures.
Sam said on 30/Jun/15
His father looked nothing at all like Jr. and was no more than 5'8" if I had to guess from his appearance in 12 Angry Men...I mean seriously is there a father-son acting pair that you can think of who resemble each other so little? Robert Downey Sr. & Jr. and Timothy & Rafe Spall come to mind as not bearing a strong resemblance and having dissimilar heights but you can see similar features if you look closely unlike the Begleys. Donald and Kiefer are very different heights but Kiefer kind of looks like a compressed Donald (or Donald's kinda a stretched out Kiefer if you prefer).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/15
He could be a fraction under it at worst today but that's great going for 66.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Apr/15
I take that back too, got a good look at him with Streep in the elevator scene and stood straight he's got a head on Meryl and she was in medium heels too! Has to be 6'4".
Arch Stanton said on 3/Apr/15
Didn't look 6'4" with Meryl Streep in She-Devil.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/14
Actually I take that back...same height as Goldblum in recent pictures.
Lenad said on 5/Mar/14
looked like he could pass for 6'5 in batman forever.
Blaze said on 23/Nov/13
looks 6'4.5 with Seth Rogen in pineapple express.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/13
"Ed Begley Jr height: 6ft 3.75in (192cm)"
Sam said on 10/Oct/13
Good upgrade IMO. This guy is right around the same size as Jeff Goldblum and Chris O'Dowd.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Sep/13
Well then is 194cm peak possible, Rob?

He's 64.
Editor Rob
6ft 4 peak is fair for him, he might not have lost more than a fraction by now and still look between 6ft 3.5-4 range today
Lo sgozzatore said on 26/Sep/13
6'4 is perfect for him! Better than 6'3.5...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/13
But does he look that tall to you?

He could very be rounding up
Editor Rob
I think he can look that tall, hence why I tried to find if he claimed it and found he did!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/13
Rob, what made you decide 6ft4?
Editor Rob
since I saw that he went and claimed it
Balrog said on 19/Aug/13
I think he is 6'4".
Sam said on 8/Jul/13
In Family Tree, Begley Jr. actually looks marginally taller than the 6'4"-claiming/6'3.5" listed Chris O'Dowd. I think Begley has better posture and slightly higher footwear, but he is not less than listed. I do think Begley really is within a close fraction of being 6'4".
Sam said on 11/Mar/13
He and solidly 6'4" Jeff Goldblum appear to be exactly the same height. Begley also states his height as 6'4" in the film Best in Show:

James said on 15/Feb/13
6'3 these days but I don't think he was anything less than 6'4 in his prime.
Lo sgozzatore said on 2/Feb/13
You trust that someone?
Editor Rob
the poster was called XHavier, it was from 2005, he seemed reasonable from his posts during that time.
Lo sgozzatore said on 1/Feb/13
There are some pics with Jeff Goldblum, who's no less than 6'4 and they look about the same... Did he claim anything? From what this listing comes? He looks more 6'4 than a lot of 6'4 guys on here...
Editor Rob
someone said they emailed his site and got back a 6ft 3 reply.
Lo sgozzatore said on 1/Feb/13
Look at this photo: Click Here
He's standing behind the Larry David and it seems he could be at least 6'4.5 range if he stood closer...
Editor Rob
in one of those photos he's got his shoes on the metal frame of the chart behind, so that's probably adding a little more
Lo sgozzatore said on 1/Feb/13
Rob, could he be over 6'4? He dwarfs 5'11 guys, like Larry David or Val Kilmer...
Editor Rob
I don't think he's under this current mark, he can pass for a 6ft 4 guy at times
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 6/Nov/12
He made Val Kilmer look 5'10 range in Batman Forever, he clearly towered him.
Xhavier said on 5/Aug/12
E-mailed Ed Begley's website about 10 years ago, he e-mailed back (him actually) and said he was 6ft 3in.
Shadow2 said on 21/Dec/11
In 1985's "Transylvania 6-5000", Ed is half an inch shorter than legit 6'4" Jeff Goldblum, making him 6'3.5" then. Rob, you are correct in your estimation.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 1/Dec/11
If val kilmer is 6', hes gotta be at least 6'5! He towers over him too much to be only 3.5 inches taller than him! Rob, could ed be 6'5?
Sam said on 19/Jul/11
He says he's 6'4" in a scene in the movie Best in Show
James said on 11/Jun/11
Could have passed for 6'4 in Batman Forever. Towered Val Kilmer and made Jim Carrey look average height.
5'7.37 said on 20/Jan/11
Rob, this guy must have been 6'5 at peak, nowadays he has at least 2 inches on legit 6'2ers Will Arnett and Colin Hanks.

Editor Rob
colin hanks said he was 6ft 1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/10
Ed Begley Jr. was 6"3.75(192cm) in his prime.

Today he's 6"3 flat
Hugh 190cm said on 30/Jun/09
Maybe 6ft4 prime.
Hugh 190cm said on 8/Jun/09
6ft4 peak.
\_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 5/Mar/09
6ft4 when he was younger maybe. 192cm now maybe.
Lebensdorf said on 11/Feb/09
I would say a very solid 6'4''... he really did look HUGE next to Val Kilmer and Jim Carrey, its true.
thekiddd said on 12/Sep/08
He looked like a giant next to 5'10" Rogen in Pineapple Express.
Mr. R said on 29/Jul/08
Ed has a lost a little height. I see him around LA. He is closer to 6-2 now.
DenzelFan said on 31/Mar/08
He was definitely the same height as David Morse who's a solid 6'4 in St. Elsewhere.
Gonzalo said on 24/Oct/07
Very similar to Goldblum and clearly taller than William Hurt. 1`92 minimum
Da9iel said on 8/Aug/07
I have to revise my last comment, early in the the movie (Transylvania 6-5000) Begley looks taller than Goldblum, by as much as an inch sometimes, but by mid-film he looks slightly smaller, maybe shoe related? Theres a scene with both of them in slippers and Goldblum looks taller, especially looking at the shoulders.
Da9iel said on 7/Aug/07
Watching Transylvania 6-5000 presently, and he looks slightly taller than Jeff Goldblum (believe it or not), definitely an inch+ taller than Micheal Richards (Kramer).
Gonzalo said on 19/Sep/06
He looks at least 6`4. At the end of this page there a pic of Begley with Bill Clinton and he looks at least two inches taller.

Aitor said on 10/Mar/06
He always looks so tall, like he's 6'7. But he has worked with actors like Michael J. Fox and Melissa Joan Hart.
supes78 said on 27/Feb/06
He was in a cheesy 80's movie called "Transylvania 6-5000" with 6'4" Jeff Goldblum and they always looked the exact same height in every scene they were in. 6'3" Michael Richards was also in the film and he looked slightly shorter than the two of them. Here is a pic with Begley & 6'4" Goldblum and they look about the same height;
Xhavier said on 14/Nov/05
He is 6ft 3in tall. I emailed his official web site. Makes me wonder how tall Harry Anderson really is (judge from Night Court) since he is shorter than Begley, and is supposedly 6ft 4in.
