How tall is Eric Christian Olsen

Eric Christian Olsen's Height

6ft 1 (185.4 cm)

American actor, best known for roles in Cellular, Not Another Teen Movie, Fired UP and The Thing. On TV he plays Detective Marty Deeks in NCIS: Los Angeles. In this photo, I was wearing 0.75in Skechers, whilst Eric's boot looked to give him a 1/4 inch footwear advantage over me.

This guy holds 6ft1 at his low. I think he's in the same zone as Gatiss, Reardon and Mitchell...
Darksol64 said on 27/Sep/22
Looks like a totally legit and solid 6'1 before bed guy to me. Maybe 6'0.75 only at an extreme low.

Yeah Rob, hard to deny this evidence

I know you've met Eric obviously but it's likely more Chris being a bit under 6ft. He varies next to people too often. I don't think Eric is under 6ft1 now. Reminds me a lot of Mark Pellegrino in these photos who looks like that next to weak 6ft guys

Sammy 6'5

He's a super strong 6'1, idk bout 6'2 tho, but here he can look anywhere in 186-187 range due to his shoe advantage
Sammy 6'5" said on 13/Oct/21
The average guesses are WAY too low, I can't be the only one who thinks he looks 6'2" EASY, probably even more. Look at him next to Chris Evans.

Whenever I see the above salute, it reminds me of the beginning of 'Blackadder Goes Forth'. 😋 "Eyes right!" says Captain Blackadder followed by the same from Hugh Laurie's Lieutenant George and Stephen Fry as General Melchett. Sometimes, I've asked my ex-Army boyfriend to salute for me; I find it rather attractive! 🤗

Both Rob and Eric have the salute down to a tee, and the way they're standing - bolt upright - displays the height difference perfectly.

Eric gets no less than 6ft1. 💂‍♀️🤭
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jan/21
Actually, I think the 6ft1 mark is ok for him
Leesheff85 said on 8/Jan/21
Hes 6ft 1 at the absolute lowest
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Sep/20
Lol. Eric is only max 6'0 3/4 given Rob had 1/4 less footwear.
Jam Cherry said on 7/Jun/20
Perhaps a complete 6’1” at 185.5 cm
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/20
Rob, you once listed Jack Coleman at 6'2 1/2 for that could be always his peak before you change it to 6'2.25" it means a fraction height loss it could explain why Nicholas D'agosto with little less footwear look 6'1 1/2 with him back in Heroes also explain it why everyone sees it 1 big inch between him and Eric in Fired UP. Maybe Nicholas D'agosto listing need an adjustment. Click Here In Final Destination 5 here at 7:00-7:03 when legit 6'2 David Koechner in dress shoes talking to D'agosto who wear converse there and look nothing over 1/2" between them.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/May/20
@Mark Allan

I can buy Eric Christian Olsen being 6'1 only if Nicholas D’Agosto get 6'2. I watch Fired UP at least 3 times notice a full inch between them is reliable not sure only 0.5" that less. I know 6'2.25" Jack Coleman look about 1" taller than D’Agosto one scene in Heroes but Coleman look to have an obvious advantage on footwear and camera angle. In Trial and Error 6'3 1/4 John Lithgow doesn't look over 1.25" taller than D’Agosto. Maybe Rob need to look out for this. You have pretty accurate estimate on Eric and Nicholas D’Agosto is really an inch between them but Rob had under listed D’Agosto at 6'1 1/2.
Mark Allan said on 8/May/20
Rob, Did he seem to you more 6’1 than the 6’2 he’s listed on the web it’s a difficult one because he’s a tad shorter than Nick D’Agosto so maybe Olsen 6’1 and D’Agosto 6’2?
Editor Rob
Closer to 6ft 1 than 2 in person.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Jun/19
Average guess is too high. He look 1/4 under 6'1.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Apr/19
If Nicholas D'agosto stick to 186.7cm then i wouldn't go above 184.7cm for Olsen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/19
I can see a fraction under 6ft1 at worst. Not just 184cm though
Nik said on 26/Jan/19
He does (autocorrect tried to change it to oss!) look a weak 6'1"
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 24/Jan/19
I'm not seeing a full 6'1" for him, especially when he has 1/4" thicker footwear than Rob. Looks 6'0.5"-6'0.75" range or a very weak 6'1".
Editor Rob
Olsen in person would at worst be 6ft 0.75, but I think he is close enough to it that 6ft 1 is reasonable and believable listing.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Jan/19
He can be listing 6'0 3/4-6'1 1/4 but nothing change the fact that he isn't just 1/2 shorter than Nicholas D'agosto. Its 2cm or full inch between them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/19
lol pound width...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/19
6ft0⅞ could be on the money.
Editor Rob
6ft 0.5 and 1.5 I would rule out, but roughly around 6ft 1 I feel he'd measure. May well be a pound coin width underneath it!
Bobby said on 28/Dec/18
His slim frame makes him look over 6'1. His eye level doesn't quite look 5'8 though, then again, Rob is over 5'8 himself.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Nov/18
@ Nik - I agree with you there! It's also a blinder for showing Eric's height off to the full - and Rob's, for that matter!

Before I was frequenting this website, I would have guessed Eric at about 6ft3...

Goes to show how much I've learnt! 😊

Eric gets 6ft1.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Oct/18
Tom Mison may not be shorter than Olsen.
Edimar184 said on 28/Sep/18
He looks 187cm with you.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/18
Rob, out of Reardon, Amell, Hoult and Olsen who do you rate as the tallest?
Editor Rob
They are hard to tell apart in person, all might measure roughly within a quarter inch range.

I think actually Olsen looked a more solid 6ft 1 guy than Amell, but a fraction more footwear helps that.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Jul/18
I think Tom Mison will edge out Eric at less by 1/8".
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Jun/18
Seriously 1/4 under this listing.

D'agosto 187cm
Olsen 184.8cm
Dream(5'9.5") said on 5/Jun/18
I used to think he was a good 6'1"

Boy, I was wrong!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/May/18
If Nicholas D'agosto listed at 6'1.5" there is zero chance Eric can be listed at 6'1. Like i say a few times min 2cm between this two guy is the truth.
Zampo said on 4/May/18
Don't think he is the full 6'1 although it would depend on the size of his head. Using myself as an example, in typical 0.8-1 inch footwear, my eye-level would be about 173.5 cm. I would measure about 185 cm flat (11.5 cm eye-head). Adjusting for his footwear advantage, I think this is what his eye-level would be barefooted. I would peg him at 185 cm ish to be safe, as it's hard to tell where the top of his head ends.

Is 185 cm generally considered a weak 6'1?
Editor Rob
I think 185 flat is getting close to weak range, maybe 184.7-185cm zone.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Apr/18
I would rule out Olsen lowest 184.5cm had to be a solid 2cm shorter than someone 186.7cm maybe 186.5cm Nicholas D'agosto who look close to 1" shorter than legit 6'2 1/4 Jack Coleman. Strange thing is Agosto modeling period was given 6'0 that low but his way taller just like Ryan Mcpartlin.
Wedd said on 23/Feb/18
I think he's gotta be 184.3-5. There was that 186.3 guy in Rob's height challenge who came up to Rob's hairline barefoot. Christian-Olsen doesn't reach it even with footwear, AND advantage.
Junior Hernandez said on 6/Feb/18
6'0.75" really need a downgrade. A legit 6'1 will look over 6'1 with bigger footwear than 5'8 1/8" rob.
Sarah said on 7/Jan/18
184 cm max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Sep/17
Lowest I'd argue is 184.5-185cm...

ronaldo height
S.J.H said on 21/Jun/17
Just highlight. His shoulder tip is only 152cm from the mugshot. Head down shoulder 33cm if he is 185cm. If Nicholas D'agosto is 186.7cm there is no way eric christian olsen 185.4cm much likely he is 184.8cm and D'agosto close to 187.3cm. I see solid 2cm between them no way half inch aka 1.27cm more full inch.

Nicholas D'agosto 187cm on the nose
Eric Christian Olsen 185cm knock off a few mm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/17
6ft1 flat is fine. Can sometimes pull off a bit over or under that. LL Cool J for the most part looked slightly taller than him though
Balrog said on 11/Mar/17
I think he is 6'0.5'' or 6'0.75'' at best. Even if he is 6'1'', he looked more than just an inch taller than Evans, so you might consider downgrading Chris...
Ultimate said on 28/Feb/17
@Big Rob

I see a strong 6'1.25
Editor Rob
Leo he's got no less than 1/4 inch thicker shoe...but in person certainly not 6ft 1.5 (to make him 6ft 1.25)...
S.J.H said on 26/Feb/17
I'm pretty sure 6'1 kid Big Al is taller than a barefoot Olsen. 1/4 more shoe is just estimate by rob it looks more 1/3 than 1/4 honestly and from this picture he doesn't look over 12cm taller than rob and minus off shoes he can possibly be 6'0.5
Andrea said on 22/Feb/17
Oh, sorry, I meant that Mark has a smidge more footwear than Eric, not than you...
Andrea said on 21/Feb/17
Well, they both don't look much different in the pictures with you... And Mark has got a hair, a very thin hair 😁, more footwear than you, according to the descriptions! Plus you yourself said that his range is 6'0.5-6'1, I doubt Al's range is as low as that 😋
Editor Rob
both have fraction more footwear, but yeah if I was to bet on whether Mark or Eric measured taller I'd probably put it on Mark.
Andrea said on 21/Feb/17
So it was just a "mistake"? A good mistake, I must say... 😋
Didn't you say that, WITHOUT considering any footwear difference, he didn't look any taller than Big Al in person? Isn't that enough to completely rule out the full 6'1? He does look pretty close to 6'1 with you, I must say, BUT, considering he has a 1/4 inch advantage, 6'0.75 would be the best shout!!! 😉
Yeah, I would say he looked at least 3 cms taller than Chris and I can even see 1.5 inches in some of the scenes I've seen... That would make Chris a weak 6', to say the least
Editor Rob
he looked within the same range as Big Al.

Out of Eric and say mark gatiss, there is probably more chance of Mark being a little bit taller.
Andrea said on 20/Feb/17
Rob, why is he listed at 6'0.75 on the homepage and 6'1 on his actual page? Speaking of this guy, I saw him on TV a few days ago in a movie with Chris Evans... I've only seen a few scenes but he did look at least a good inch (1.25) taller than Chris, in quite similar shoes! And considering Eric himself isn't even a full 6'1...
Editor Rob
I fixed it, I have kept 6ft 1 for him, he could pull off looking 3cm taller than Evans.
S.J.H said on 16/Feb/17
There is no way LL Cool J is 6'1.5 and ECO stays 6'1. There is at least 2cm between them which is 0.75" and up here i could even tell the footwear is not 1/4 more is more like 1/2 or 2/3 more advantage
grizz said on 15/Feb/17
@Rob, seems like you're leaning on to the 6'0.75 estimate.
If that is true, Click Here then how tall is Michael Weatherly then?
You can see their footwear from 0:48 and them facing off from 1:30
Editor Rob
grizz, they can look pretty close.
S.J.H said on 30/Jan/17
Check on 6'1.5 nicolas d'agosto page like Berta say there is an inch between them i totally agrees it and sometimes lowest is still 0.75" between them. So a 6'0.75 is generous enough def not a 6'1 for 99% chances
Editor Rob
if I get round to watching Fired Up, I'll give a thought on how they looked, both have about half inch hairstyles I think.
Andrea said on 26/Jan/17
Rob said he didn't look any taller than Big Al in person, which means he looked 6'1 at most (without considering the footwear advantage, of course)! This means he cannot be over 6'0.75... 🙂😉
S.J.H said on 26/Jan/17
If Olsen is 6'1 then nicolas d'agosto must be 6'1.75 and jack coleman must be 6'2.75 added chris evans 6'0.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/17
Looks 186cm in the photo but has a shoe advantage. I still think 6ft1 is fair game though…
S.J.H said on 23/Jan/17
I would rule out 184.5cm for Olsen and my legitmate 185.5cm older brother look taller than him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/17
Looks roughly 1in shorter than the strong 6ft2 guy
Man said on 22/Jan/17
Looks 6,2
Editor Rob
when you see how Eric looks (with similar camera position) to a solid 6ft 2.25 guy Click can see why I would disagree.

He's more like a weak 6ft 1, given he had thicker shoes.
6'0 said on 20/Jan/17
I'd say somewhere between 6'1.5 and 6'2.
Peter 179cm said on 20/Jan/17
@ S.J.H. He's taller than 184cm and also looks 186 with more footwear.He's definitely 185cm,now whether that's 6'1 or 6'0.75 it's debatable and hard to say.
S.J.H said on 19/Jan/17
This vote over 6'1 is ridiculous. He cant be over 6'0.75 especially he had like a cm footwear more than rob like rob mention. More like strong 6'0.5 or a good 6'0.75
berta said on 19/Jan/17
in some way this guy looks alittle like jim carrey . i dont know why they dont look like eath others att all but i always think of jim carrey when i see this guy. althoug jim carrey is 1,5 cm taller i think
S.J.H said on 17/Jan/17
If nicholas d'agosto is 6'1.5 then like i say ECO is close to 185cm but not solid 6'1. There is 2-3cm between them not 0.5'
Mark(5'9.25 said on 17/Jan/17
I still stand by my opinion that Eric is a legit 6'1" despite the footwear advantage.

dont think he goes under 185,5 according to the photo if we take away hair and a little shoe. i see strong 185 guy ore weak 186
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/17
185-186cm for me.
Peter 179cm said on 15/Jan/17
As i said before this guy looks a more legit 6'1 than Amell does.If he's really as low as 6'0.5-6'0.75 range then Amell is no more than 6'0-6'0.25 tops.
Tunman said on 14/Jan/17
Let's be honest,Rob is doing fantastic job,isn't he?
I understand your point and sometimes just wonder how it's possible to have celebs who seem different at a same mark...
Now whether we like it or not,actors claims also impact (though just a little) Rob's judgement.After all imagine that Jared claimed 6'3.75" just to confuse people he's not 6'4,then arguments for the mark would be very common in Rob's answers for the simple reason that 0.25" isn't really that easily noticeable even when you're called Rob Paul,now if he claimed 6'3 things would have been different.Since he met him and thought not over 6'4 then probably the difference looked 20 cm but no more.A honest 6'4 like he claimed a true one, a rare one
The problem is that we have guys like Momoa claiming 6'5 but who aren't that tall,it's great that Rob knows he's no more than 6'4 nevertheless he's unconsciously trying to link the 6'5 claim to his own guess and again taking the optimistic estimate of 6'4 rather than say 6'3.5 or 6'3.75"
Btw there is an actress who claimed 5'6.5" whom Rob listed at 5'7 as he didn't see her under that.An objective guy simple
Peter175 said on 13/Jan/17
looks 188 in this picture
S.J.H said on 13/Jan/17
@Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Jan/17

Mark Gatiss will edge him out by strong 0.5" , Eric Christian Olsen is more like dipping under 185cm and Mark Gatiss strong 6'1.25
grizz said on 13/Jan/17
c-mo, we have different perspectives. For me, Brian Austin Green is far from perfect height. With his stronger physique I thought for the longest time that he was barely 5'10. Imagine my surprise when I saw him listed here at 5'11. Tackles,although solidly built,seems to suffer for height complex. It's a really rare opportunity to see him wearing something else other than Timberland boots. Guess he craves to be a 6'1 guy (heck,I think he even claims that height!)
Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Jan/17
I change my mind. He does look a legit 6'1" like Mark Gatiss and Luke Mitchell.
Borats Chicken said on 12/Jan/17
rob, he looks like could be 6'1.25 in morning and 6'1 for the whole day
Editor Rob
Borat, for me he's a maximum 6ft 1 guy and could be 6ft 0.75.
c-mo said on 12/Jan/17
grizz said on 9/Jan/17
@c-mo, why is he little too tall? Dude has the perfect beach body physique.


dont get me wrong 6'1 is a great height ...with the right proportions it is phenomenal . but in some cases it looks too gangly and a bit "too long" .below 6'1 this happens not often but I noticed once you hit around 185cm or so (evening) you can very easily start to look a bit like a spider lol . it is a matter of view I guess because I dont agree with you that this guy has the perfect physique .

look up the pages of guys like Jensen Ackles , Matthew Davis , Brian Austin Green . those heights look perfect to me and they also dont look gangly

5'11 - 6'0 without shoes in the evening is the best height a man can have in my eyes . anything else is just an ego trip aka "I want to be taller than most meeeeeen"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jan/17
6ft1 too
S.J.H said on 11/Jan/17
I still see ECO as a weak 6'1. He can't be 0.5 shorter than 6'1.5 nicholas d'agosto. There is at least 0.75" between them and sometimes look more like 1.25". 6'0.75 might be good shout than 6'1
Some dude said on 11/Jan/17
this dude looks taller than Stephen Amell and he is listed 6ft 1in LOL
Kaneff said on 9/Jan/17

I have to disagree. I think 6'1 is a great height, perfect even. I don't think he looks "too tall" at all. IMO 6'1 has the best proportions of any height, think guys like Obama, Ronaldo, Prince Harry, etc. I mean 6'1 looks clearly tall but nobody is going to use your height as an icebreaker or ask if you play basketball. At 6'2+ they might. At 6'0 it's more like "He's kinda tall/on the tall side" instead of being unanimously viewed as definitely tall.

I was walking around community college today when it was really crowded, observing people's heights, and thought my height would feel perfect if I was just 1 inch taller. I saw a lot of guys 5'11-6'0 but not as many 6'1+ because of how height is distributed on a bell curve.

I would say 6'2 is when it starts being too tall if you don't have a good build. A lanky guy can pull off 6'1 just fine but 6'2+ is harder. I would take staying 6'0 over being 6'2, but just barely.

"Editor Rob: it is my best guess."
Good answer, it makes sense... 😊
No, it actually doesn't! 😡 It isn't "fair" that some celebrities get quite optimistic listings and you go with the top of the range they would measure in and other celebrities get the "middle value"! Honestly, 6'3.75 seems impossible for Jared, I don't buy anything under 6'4 for him! And hey if you'll ever manage to take a picture with Jared and he will look under 6'4 (like basically every "6'4" guy you took a picture with), I'll have no problem to say "he doesn't look over 6'3.5 or 6'3.75 with you"!!! But I would be surprised if he looked sub 6'4 with you! As for Eric, I have not seen anything of him but he doesn't look much under 6'1 with you, probably 6'0.5 at worst...
Editor Rob
from all I've seen and in person, I just feel about 6ft 4 is a fair listing, although I wouldn't list him under 6ft 4.
c-mo said on 9/Jan/17
do you guys remember when I said that some 6'1 guys dont look to have an "ideal height" ...that 6'1 is a little too tall to be perfect ? this guy is one of the examples of what I meant
Ly said on 9/Jan/17
Rob you think Amell and Eric fall in the same range over 6ft.05 and at best 6ft1.
Editor Rob
both could measure roughly 185, whether slightly below or above is a matter of debate.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 8/Jan/17
He easily looks 187 CM by you. 186 CM if you factor in the extra 1/4" of footwear.
184guy said on 8/Jan/17
@Rob,Jared falls in the 6'3.75 is very improbable
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/17
I get a taller impression from this guy than Amell but it could be the shoes
Andrea said on 8/Jan/17
Why don't you give Jared 6'4.25 then? You went with the "top of the range" with Stephen and Eric... Honestly, I'd be shocked if Jared was only 6'3.75 but not shocked at all if Stephen was 6'0.5!!! 😱
Editor Rob
it is my best guess.
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 8/Jan/17
he is looking at top of rob's head comfortably. for a 6'1 man his eye should have been at rob's curve head. But in his case, is above that.
Peter 179cm said on 8/Jan/17
Rob struggles to reach his eyelevel in the pic,he's atleast 6'0.75-6'1 range.Definitely taller than Amell and about the same as Big Al,at worst maybe a few mm's shorter.
Jim hopper said on 8/Jan/17
Its strange because you have dolph lundgren 1.75" taller than him?
Editor Rob
Dolph has a 1/4 less than me, Eric has a 1/4 more than me, so you start off with a half inch swing...Dolph looked taller in any case before looking at footwear.
Andrea said on 8/Jan/17
If he didn't look any taller than Big Al, without considering any footwear advantage, wouldn't that rule out the full 6'1? 🤗
He doesn't look under 6'0.5 with you, I agree! It's funny you guess people like Stephen or Eric within a very "large" half an inch range, saying they must be somewhere in 6'0.5-6'1, and then you say a guy like Jared Padalecki isn't over (or under) 6'4, more than a small fraction (probably 1/8th of an inch, considering you said you completely rule out 6'4.25 for him...)! And that should be even harder to guess from your point of view, considering that Jared is noticeably taller than both of them!!! 🤔🤐
Editor Rob
the range is still narrow, I think Eric would measure between those figures in the same way I'd say Jared could fall somewhere within the 6ft 3.75-4.25 range.
TJE said on 8/Jan/17
Hard to tell how big his eye level is, but Rob's eyes are at his chin so 5 inch range is possible. I'd say near enough 6'1; wouldn't argue over it.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 8/Jan/17
Not a strong 6'1" person, but easily over 6'0" comfortably.
Balrog said on 7/Jan/17
Pushing 6'1'', but with footwear advantage he can't be this tall. I think 6'0.5''-6'0.75'' would be better.
Victor Surratt said on 7/Jan/17
He looks 1.86 in the picture with Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/17
On second thought, he looks a solid 5in over Rob. Similar to how Mitchell or Gatiss looked...
Andrea said on 7/Jan/17
If he didn't look taller than Big Al, why you list him at 6'1 then? He is taller than the 184 challenger, isn't he?
Editor Rob
Andrea, like Amell, he'd measure somewhere over 6ft 0.5 up to 6ft 1 at most.

for me, there is little chance he's over 6ft 1.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 7/Jan/17
Looks a solid 6'1" here.
Sam said on 7/Jan/17
Looks dead on 6'1 with Rob, and just under 6'1 without the 1/4" footwear advantage. Don't forget his hair might give him a bit more extra height over Rob. I'd say 6'0.75.
Kaneff said on 7/Jan/17
Textbook example of 6'1"
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 7/Jan/17
easily 6'2 in the picture.
Andrea said on 7/Jan/17
He looks 6'1 MAX, without considering any footwear difference...
Take away a quarter inch and he looks more in the weak 6'1 range!
Did he look taller than Big Al, without looking at his shoes, Rob?

Andrea, he certainly wasn't any taller than big Al.
I think probably Luke Mitchell that day looked the more classic 6ft 1 guy although he looked a bit taller and had more like a 1.25 sneaker, while I don't think Eric's shoe was more than around 1 inch.

He looks a legit 6'1er
Peter 179cm said on 7/Jan/17
Now that's how a legitimate 185cm should look like.Great photo Rob!
He actually looks 186 with advantage so 6'1 is on the money.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/17
Rob, did he look 6ft1 in person?

I see 4-5in between the two of you and he has an advantage…
berta said on 7/Jan/17
rob if we take away the hair he looks weak 187 guy to me and then the shoe advantage he is down to 186. By looking at the photo he is in the 186 range. falt 185 is out of question.
grizz said on 7/Jan/17
Lucky you,Rob! What's he like?
He does seem like a slightly more convincing 6'1 guy than Amell.

S.J.H not even in million years (Ok,more like 20 years given his age). By that logic, Michael Weatherly is a strong 6-footer
S.J.H said on 2/Nov/16
Nicholas d'agosto could be 6'1.75 and ECO could be 6'0.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/16
Watching NCIS again he can look similar to LL Cool J who might be nearer 6ft2 than 6ft1.

"Eric Christian Olsen's height is 6ft 1¼in (186cm)"

Update: I had it verified by the bartender tonight that it was, in fact, him. I'd also like to add that she said he is a very generous person. He tipped her $4.00 on a glass of water (which was of course free of charge).

Does anyone know if he has ties to Columbia, South Carolina? I swear I just saw him at a bar tonight with a bunch of people dressed in suits and ties. It was a wedding party and as he was getting into a cab someone from his party called out to him and yelled "Eric!" I got a feeling it was him the second I saw him, but I was thinking "what the heck would he be doing in Columbia?" But a girl from the group I was with identified him too so it further cemented my belief it was him. If so.. and maybe it's a long shot, but he wasn't any taller than 6'0"

His height is bit confusing as he was 2 inches taller than Chris evans in not another teen movie but was 1 inch shorter than nicholas'd agosto in fired up
Mastro said on 16/Jul/14
I will have to check him out on Community where he does scenes with 6'4" Chevy Chase and Joel McHale. They are taller than him- but don't tower over him, either.
Graham said on 19/Apr/14
Saw him on set when I was an extra, solid 187 for eric. 2 cm shorter than me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/13
Around 185cm, although I think he can pull off looking near 6ft2 because he's slim.
LL Cool J edges him out. He might be 187-188cm, Rob?
tony t. said on 26/Feb/13
Thought he looked 6'2ish on ncis LA.
Balrog said on 14/Feb/13
Lo sgozzatore are you sure? Which episode was? Olsen can't be under 6'0''. If he's 5'11'' then Chris Evans is 5'9.5''.
Lo sgozzatore said on 11/Feb/13
He was in a Smallville ep and he looked way shorter than Tom Welling! I really thought he was 5'10-5'11 max! He was towered by Welling!
Balrog said on 2/Feb/13
He looks about 1in shorter than D'Agosto and also next to LL J Cool. Over 6 foot for sure but not quite 6'1'' I'd say. I'll put him at 6'0.25''. Krasinski also looked more than just 2in taller than him.
LJ said on 30/Dec/12
If LL Cool J is listed as 187, there's no way this guy can be listed at 185. He does look over 6'0, though.
Alex said on 15/Sep/12
On NCIS LA they showed his driving licence with 5-11.
steven said on 20/Jan/12
i think this guy is 6'1 in shoe. 5'11.5 like josh lucas. solid 182cm
dmeyer said on 5/Nov/11
i thaught he looked smaller than ll cool j in ncis by 2 in i guess i didnt see well i will look again
LAN Jiao said on 20/Oct/11
in Fire Up Nicholas D'Agosto look from 3-5cm taller than Olsen. D'Agosto looks a solid 6'1.5 in final destionation 5 which i assume he is 187cm so no way Olsen can be over 6'0. 6'0 listing is rubbish for D'Agosto.
ECO - 183
ND'A - 187
Tyler said on 30/Sep/11
I'd buy 6'1.5-6'2" for him.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/11
I think he could be near 6ft2
Tyler said on 7/May/11
Either he's 5'11" or Nicolas D'Agosto is 6'3".
J said on 24/Apr/11
Eric is 6'2". Most say he's shorter than Nick D'Astogo but when you see pictures of Nick and his costars from HEROES who are 6'3" he's the exact same height. He is also just a tad taller than LL COOL J and he's 6'1.5". So it's just Nick who has the wrong height listed online.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/11
186cm or 187cm?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/11
Could he be taller than 6ft1 Rob?

Editor Rob
he's somewhere in 6ft 1 range, I think at times he does look taller, maybe his slimness adds to his height aswell?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/10
Rob is this guy related to the Olsen Twins?

Editor Rob
I don't know
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/10
He's between 6"1 and 6"2.
Clay said on 1/Jul/09
Hugh and Nate, watch Fired up, he's shorter than Nick D'Augusto who claims 6 foot himself. 6'2 at least ? LOL come on, he's noticebly shorter than the guy who plays Sarah Roemer's boyfriend and he's listed at 6'2.
Clay said on 1/Jul/09
How can he be 6'1 when he's consistently shorter than 6 foot Nick D' Augusto in Fired up.... and they both were sneakers.
Josh.J said on 28/May/09

2 inches over zack braff? i doubt it. looks 6'1 max next to 6'1.5 Tony Goldwyn.
Nate said on 16/Feb/09

Hugh said on 31/Dec/08
6ft2 at least.
