Not as high as 6ft6, but 6ft5 and change wouldn’t surprise me. He puts John Larroquettes 6ft5 claim to rest

Rob, possibly a bit over this?
Looked 6ft6 at times
I think I'd stick with around 6ft 5, I couldn't see him as tall as 6ft 6

This guy was a true 6ft5er, quite possibly a bit over it even. Very large man overall.

Rob who do you think would be taller at prime Edward or Tony Todd?
That is hard to call...

Rob what do think is more likely out of being slightly under 6'5 or over?
I think over is more likely.
In his prime...maybe a greater chance of being over the mark

More like 220lbs young and 270lbs before death. At 185lbs he’d look closer to Jeff Goldblum in build

I suppose you could argue 196-197cm range if Larroquette was 194cm

@Mincer: that's hard to believe even then. But who knows. I'd have guessed at least 200
Mincer said on 18/Apr/17
That was 1982, he was definitely a lot heavier when he died.

185 lbs???? He's much bigger than I am and was taller than me by a couple cm and I weigh 230 he had to be 260 just not in good shape

It stated " In a 1982 Philly Inquirer mentioned him as "6ft 5 and 185lbs". " he was probably nearly 240 pounds before his passing

185lbs is a joke though

There is a photo of him with Arnold Schwarzenegger where Arnold comes up to the top of his ear. Definitely 6'5"

Sorry to hear of his passing, as if 2014 wanted to take one more away. :=( Excellent character actor with a wonderful voice.

I agree with this. Taller than John Larroquette in Richie Rich
Sam said on 30/Dec/11
That height is correct but that weight is long gone!

In a movie I'd seen, he'd stood next to the 6'5" John Laroquette (who also
downplays his height) and he seemed to be the same height, if not slightly
taller. I also met someone who knows him and confirmed he's at least 6'5".

a proper legitimate and looming 6'5.... when compared against other supposedly 6'5 men like vince vaughn, he looks taller than most of the competition, he could even be taller, but downplays his height as to not interfere with his ability to get roles.

Wonderful actor and every inch of 6'5.

Made Kurt Russell look like a diddy man in Overboard.

I was sitting next to him at a restaurant in New York about 8 years ago. This is pretty accurate.

Always looms over the competition, check out 'Nixon' for comp. between him and Anthony Hopkins, for example.
