As listed

Id say he’s a full 6 foot. Looks clear 4 inches or more above Oscar in the office. Specifically in the scene where Michael makes that inappropriate joke about Phyllis getting flashed and they show the office’s reactions.
Sonnecker said on 10/Oct/21
Ed could be a weak 6'0, but sometimes he appears the full 6'. Probably around 182 cm, I'd go with 5'11 and 3/4 for him!

Watching season 6 episode 1 of The Office right now and at the timestamp 14:13, Jim and Andy (Ed Helms) are standing next to each other talking and it's a good shot at guessing their height difference. I think Ed is 100% no less than 5'11.5" if John Krasinski is 6'2.5" to 6'2.75". He actually looks like a flat 6'0" there imo. I don't get those guesses of anything lower than 5'11.5".
Anne Moeller said on 4/Jul/21
In Brooklyn 9-9 he looks 6 ft flat next to 5 ft 9 and a half Andy Samberg.
MaskDeMasque said on 21/Jun/21
Strong 5'11 dude. 5'11.25-5'11.5 range.
Dom5'11.5 said on 30/May/21
5'11.5 nothing less
Magnus 6'4" said on 4/Feb/21
I think definitely 6’0 out of bed. He looks 6’0 next to John Krasinski, Steve Carell. and Craig Robinson. I’d say 5’11 5/8 by the end of the day
Pat m said on 3/Feb/21
He looks 5ft11 to me, sometimes looks over it and sometimes under it, I'd put him spot on 5ft11 IMO
Canson said on 30/Dec/20
5’11.5 is a decent estimate
RR said on 29/Dec/20
Like other's have mentioned on here, maybe Cooper's the one wearing the lifts? There were some pictures I noticed that showed Cooper's waist to be disproportionate when standing next to Helms. The height inconsistencies in some of the scenes and pictures says it all. That's one of the clues even Rob mentions that could possibly indicate someone as a lift wearer. 😉😄✌️
BT said on 14/Dec/20
On The Office I thought he generally could look closer to 6ft than 5'11. I guess you could argue he's looked anywhere in that range with different people over the years, so 5'11.5 is a fair guess.
RR said on 29/Nov/20
There's no way Ed Helms is anywhere near 5'11. He's got less height as compared to Bradley Cooper. Here are a few fine examples:

On the other hand, there's also some scenes that he does start to look like he's 5ft 11 and near Bradley Cooper's height. I'd say he's only 5ft 9 ½ in person. Could he really be just wearing lifts? What do you think Rob? Thank you for your input.

sometimes Helms might look barely 5ft 11, but I think seeing him near someone like Renner I doubt he's a 5ft 10 guy.

Edged by Cooper in hangover so 6’+ is impossible

Jkiller said on 30/Sep/20
I'd put him at 5'11.5, right under 182cm.
Monkey knees said on 3/Aug/20
@realist Ed Helms is, indeed, 5ft 11.33in. But a solid inch and 1/3 over average. Not just over. He is an inch shorter, flat foot, than lift AND heel wearer Bradley Cooper.
Realist said on 7/Jun/20
He always looks just over average 5'11.25 is about right for him.
Kourosh said on 31/May/20
wasn't he listed 5'11 at first rob?
Editor Rob
6ft range
Ian555 said on 26/Nov/19
Rob are you fan of The Hangover movies at all? They’re some of my favorite comedies (well at least the first one). Also in regards to Ed Helms height, do you think could be more 5’ 11 1/2” if Bradley Cooper is 6’ 0 1/2” because Cooper pretty much looks a solid inch taller everytime they are together?
Editor Rob
Some of it is amusing, but I am not a huge fan or anything. You can see how near an inch between them is possible yeah.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Feb/19
I think Ed claim 6'0. But at least he looks it 182cm with Rob given here.
Visitor said on 13/Jan/19
I've only seen him in the Hangover movies, which actually kind of triggered my curiosity to check this page... because I noticed the shoes, camera angles etc. I think he's TALLER than Bradley Cooper if anything (not by much, but still). There are so many scenes where the camera is angled or tilted in Cooper's favour, plus stuff like Helms in Converse and Cooper in clearly bigger running sneakers (possibly lifts) of some sort etc. It looked PRECISELY like it was purposefully shot in a way that would make you think Cooper is the tallest guy there but he isn't.

They're both a LOT taller than Galifianakis, so much so that it's impossible to say whether they're 5'11 or 6' flat or whatever but I'd guess in that range, for both of them. Cooper OVER 6', no way, even looking at him compared to Fallon will instantly tell you that. IMHO.
HonestSlovene said on 27/Nov/18
I can buy 5'11.5" for him at the tallest.
Mickie said on 28/Oct/18
5'11.5" seems tall enough for Helms.
Zampo said on 15/Sep/18
Around 5'11.5. Rob, what made you list him initially as 6'0? was it based in the Hangover films because he indeed held up well with Bradley Cooper.
Editor Rob
At times he could look a six foot range guy.
CDS said on 5/Sep/18
Just seen movie, father figures, and was actually surprised to see ed looking so much taller than 5'10" Owen Wilson. I would've pegged ed before at about 5'11" barefoot, a solid 6' in shoes. But now, while I still wouldn't go as high as this site's listing, I may actually put him more in the 5'11.25" to 5'11.5" range?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
At least min 5'11 1/2 not lower. Maybe 5'11 3/4 too.
Monkey knees said on 10/May/18
Bradley cooper barely touches 6 foot without heels/lifts. Have seen him on set numerous times. Ed Helms is 5 foot 11 in the AM.
sulu2018 said on 19/Feb/18
Exactly the same height as Christian Bale, as well as that they are almost exactly the same age.
Clive said on 10/Dec/17

Not the best comparison photo, but I’m 176cm. I talked to him briefly, and he appeared about 2 inches taller than me. I had slightly more footwear though, so 182cm seems correct.
Andy said on 4/Nov/17
Yeah he looks near 6 feet tall in The Office
Dingus said on 18/Oct/17
On The Office he can look anywhere from 5'10.75"-5'11.75". I'd say 5'11.50".

I've just watched the Hangover movies.And it's hard to pin down his height.
In the third movie his character is LISTED AS Click Here
Compared to 6'1 Bradley Cooper Click Here he looks a little over 5'11
Compared to 5'8 Justin Bartha Click Here and Click Here but Justin is standing full erect!!
If Mike Tyson is 5'10 Click Here then Ed is 5'11.5!!!
S.J.H said on 7/Mar/17

John Francis Daley is full inch taller than Ed Helms. If John Francis Daley is 6'0 i don't buy Ed any taller than 5'11. They're really not half inch apart that small. There is more picture
Reuben said on 10/Feb/17
If John Francis Daley is listed at 6 ft, then Ed Helms has to be like a half inch shorter. And I previously told for adding a picture for him.

Ed Helms is for sure at least 1 inch shorter than 6 ft 0.5 in Bradley Cooper. I've never envisioned Ed Helms as a 6 foot flat guy in the first place. I think 5 ft 11.5 in is the best height I can possibly think of him. And include a picture of him as well to update.

Been having a look at him and tbh he looks no more than 5'11"-5'11.25" compared to Patrick Wilson.
Editor Rob
Fe, to be fair, when you see Ed standing with big a real 6ft 6 1/4 NFL guy you can see how he is struggling to look much over 5ft 11!
Joe said on 16/Jan/17
I agree with the common consensus, ed helms is not a 6 footer and this page should be changed to about 5' 11" I believe he is a full inch short of 6' based on pictures of him next to other actors
Fe said on 16/Jan/17
@Editor Rob,

since Daley is listed 6ft here, is there a chance Helms needs a Downgrade?
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Either Daley needs an Upgrade or Helms needs a Downgrade.
it can go both ways actually, 5’11.5-11.75” for Helms and 6’0.25-0.5” for Daley.
Theres no way they’re the same height, Daley looks at least an inch taller to b Honest.

What do u think Rob?
gian92 said on 30/Dec/16
he is max 5'11 compared to Jimmy Kimmel
josh jeffords said on 23/Oct/16
This guy isnt even close to 6 ft in his fantasies he is at least 4-6 inches shorter than jim on office.
He also appears about average on other things but dont see him much.
If memory serves he admits to wearing lifts and is still way under 6 ft.
He looks barely 5 10 in photos with boots on so he is likely 5 9 low average and not thin average as well.
berta said on 19/Oct/16
litlle under 6 feet
Dmeyer said on 20/Jul/16
Even if counting that Cooper is 184cm And oftenly has à bit more shoes And posture i think 5 ft 11,75 is closer
JB said on 20/Jul/16
Not that it really means much, but for what it's worth, my mother met him at an event. Literally the first thing she mentioned to me was how small he was in person. I did not meet him myself so I have no idea how tall he is, but a 6 foot man would not stand out as small.
berta said on 2/Jun/16
maybe 182 is closer to the truch.

Surprisingly, he held its own next to Chris Hemsworth and Chevy Chase on Vacation. So he might actually be a legit 6 footer.
Sam said on 19/Aug/15
Yeah, he often strikes me as maybe a half inch shy of the six foot mark...however it would difficult to argue considering how similar he looked to sudeikis in We're the Millers.
dmeyer said on 27/Jul/15
Even considering footwear and posture he is 0.75-1in under cooper

i can't understand how can be possible that there're people on this site who really believe that ed helms is 6'0" or more and bradley cooper is shorter???
there's no picture which shows that thing, while in all pictures cooper is at least 1" taller than helms...helms is 5'11.5" IMO!

5'11.5- 5'11.75 is the Lowest I would go for him, he is virtually 6'0

Looked the same heiht as Jason sudeikis in we're the millers, I think 6ft is bang on
Michael said on 4/Jun/14
i think he's 182 cm barefoot, the hangover part III a scene at police department his profile appears 6Ft. he uses sneakers in that film. But he also looks a 1.78cm or 1,80 guy

cooper 185cm and helms 181-182

"Ed Helms's height is 5ft 11.75in (182cm)"

Looked 5ft11 flat in The Office and Ceder Rapids. In The Hangover movies he could look close in height to Cooper and other times more than 1in shorter.

Doesn't look 183 next to 186/7 Craig Robinson in the US office. Looks more 181.

one of the office episodes where hes trying to audition for americas acapella contest. He meets a chick in line comes back later and the chcik sais he you look shorter and older. He said thats because i took my lifts out my character is my real height

6 feet barefoot

I would not be suprised if Cooper was 181 and Ed Helms 182.

Ed helms I respect him cause he never wear lifts in the begging of hangover2 u see Ed helms barefoot and Bradley cooper always wears lifts.. Ed helms and Bradley cooper are the same height cooper looks taller cause he wears lifts and helms like 80 percent of the time wears flats

100% agree with this ^

Personally I think Helms is a 182 cm guy, strong 5'11 (5'11.5 or 5'11.75) rather than 6' flat, he just seems a little bit under that in movies like Cedar Rapids for example, next to John C. Reilly and Kurtwood Smith (there was a barefoot scene with Kurwood and Ed in that movie).

Cooper is maybe, just maybe 1 cm taller than Helms. He (Cooper) generally wears the bigger footwear when the two of them are together. If you want to compare them then watch the scene in Hangover 3 when they are all barefoot in the monastery.

cole said on 26/Jul/13
@Dmeyer: You have to see their footwear. Whenever Helms is in flat shoes, which is almost in all pics you can find of him, Cooper is in boots, and still he only looks about an inch or so taller. They can be the same height, full 6'ers, or brushing 6'.
James said on 30/Jun/13
@dmeyer Cooper always looks taller by that amount because he has that much heel advantage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/13
Ed Helms 5"11.75"(182cm)
Bradley Cooper 6"1"(185cm)
dmeyer said on 27/Jun/13
rob i do believe this guy could be near 6 ft , but bradley 184cm cooper looks too tall near him like 2.5-3cm so either helms is 181cm or cooper is 185-186cm , defenetly aleast 1 in between them please answer
dmeyer said on 9/Jun/13
5 ft 11.5 might be closer near 184cm cooper and 172cm bartha
James said on 4/Jun/13
181. 182 to be generous. Same as, if not slightly taller than Bradley Cooper.
dd said on 11/May/13
I was under the impression Ed Helms was a 5'11 guy. Just look at this picture of him with Jason Bateman: Click Here Either Jason Bateman needs an upgrade or Ed Helms needs a downgrade.

Doesn't look much more than an inch taller than 5'10 Leslie David Baker. Might be 183 early morning but I'd say most of the day 5'11.5

Rob, he does look at least an inch shorter than Bradley Cooper, who's max 184 (i want to be generous)... Hard to believe he's over 181-182 next to him!

For gods sake. You have to factor in the footwear advantage that Bradley Cooper has in those movies. They are almost identical in heigt when barefoot, just watch the scene from the monastery in Hangover 2, Helms might even look a hair taller. There's also a 5'6/7 guy (Zach Galifinakis) next to them, check it out.
Trey said on 26/Dec/12
watching Hangover 2 Cooper looked 1 inch taller than Helms, but only when Helms was wearing flats and Cooper was wearing heels. When barefoot, Helms actually edges Cooper by a tiny bit, or is at least the same height, both strong 5'11. Look at the barfoot scene from the monastery.
Mathew said on 26/Dec/12
181 - 182 cm range. Not a true 6'.

When they talk to the monks at the monastery in Hangover part 2 the 3 main characters are standing barefoot in line. Good scene for height comparisons.

He looks like a solid 5'11, as he is about 2 inches shorter than John C Reilly, 5 inches shorter than Jason Segel, and 3 inches taller than Anne Heche with heels on (she's about 5'8 in heels.)

Looks more like 5'11 or 5'11.5 to next to Cooper most of the time.

NO WAY HES 6'0....hes 5'11 MAX, prob closer to 5'10, I watch the office reguarly and have seen him in plenty of movies, no chance hes 6'0
Chameleon said on 17/Jan/12
lol, Bradley Cooper wore lifted dress shoes in the hangover giving him a big footwear adventage over Helms. Might wanna take that into consideration????????
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 16/Jan/12
I've always thought he's one of the few celebrities whose resume doesn't fudge up his height an inch or two.

He looks 6' pretty dead on in the Office. He looks a inch or so shorter than Bradley Cooper, who I think could be slightly under 6'1. 5'11.5-6' covers him.
linke said on 16/Jan/12
was pretty close to Bradley cooper's height in hangover.

182-183 cm seems right, when comparing him to Bradley Cooper.
MD said on 15/Jan/12
Not the best picture, but with 5'11" Jason Bateman:

What's pretty clear is that he's not taller than Bateman, and if by some chance he is, it's negligble. I'm not sure I believe he's a full 6'0", though, pretty close.
Ace said on 15/Jan/12
He has always looked exactly 6'0.
