Yeah berta, those look solid. Might overall give Holloway the best odds of hitting 186cm. Either way none of those guys go below 6ft1 in the evening at peak. All could claim 6ft2 and get away with it.

Oh man, come on, he's a real 6'1", the same body build and proportions as Paul Walker, but Walker is listed at 6'2". Eric is even standing and smiling like him on this photo, lol.

6'1"/ 185cms.
berta said on 25/Feb/23
he could look that Kevin Costner Josh holloway Barack obama size. A guy i never would guess is under 6´1 but i expect him to be 6´1 or a samll fraction over. On a very good day he could be 186 and on a average day he is 185,5 that my guess. This is gonna look silly but i think something like this:
Kevin Costner 185,5
Eric Dane 185,6
Barack Obama 185,7
Josh holloway 185,8
I know that looks totally psycopathic haha but What im trying to say is that i beleive they are the same height but some of them is maybe a tiny fraction taller and if i would guess then i could see they measure those height. I may be totally wrong on all of them and it is the other way around but i think those numbers are very close to the truth. What do you say about my guesses Rob? :P

I don't see him over 6'1 flat.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/22

Eric had a scene with 6'4 Jacob Elordi in Euphoria, where they're barefoot and face-to-face in front of the camera. He only looked 3 inches shorter max, held up better than I thought he would considering how much of a giant Jacob looks on the show.

Definitely 6'1."

You're referring to the last episode of the first season, right? Having just seen it, I can tell you with absolute certainty that Eric is IN SHOES in that scene (unlike Jacob)! So more like 4 inches than 3 in reality, which is consistent with how they look in the other scenes.
Either way, I agree that Eric looks an honest enough 6'1.

I did go with 6'1 3/4 out of bed for Eric. He seem solid 6'1 with 6'3 3/4-7/8 Adam Baldwin.
Eric W Tam said on 31/Oct/20
Kudos to my fellow Eric for not claiming 6'2 or even 3. He's a big guy, can easily pass off as even taller.
Vsquad said on 4/Jul/20

Guys like Eric and Josh might simply not care about fractions though. I know a lot of people that roll their eyes at others who say they're (for example) "5'10 and a half" - like the person is obsessed for having to mention the half.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/20
Yeah he looks the same zone as Gatiss, Holloway or peak Costner. Probably measures 185.5-186cm
berta said on 1/Jul/20
he is that josh holloway size. cliam 6´1 but pull off loking 186 most of the time.

Strong 6 ft 1. Yup...
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jun/20
Isaiah Washington always look shorter than Eric.
Jam Cherry said on 4/Jun/20
Strong 6’1” perhaps 0.25” more at 186 cm
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/May/20
I recall a Men's fitness magazine listed Eric at 6'0 and there was a forum described him being 5'11. It seem ridiculous that a legit 6'1 get under listed poorly.

Eric Dane would be chuffed with his 6'1" listing, the average vote (6'0.99" after 22 votes!), and even's comment!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/19
I think Eric is more towards 6'1 1/4 than saying a flat 6'1.
Dmeyer said on 2/May/19
I worked a lot with dane and Washington , both 6'1 guys i use to measure wrong back in 2005-2007 and thaughti Was 5'11 while i am 5'11.25-11,5 Guy technicaly extrême low 5'11 3/8 and just a bout 5'11,5 on normal days thèse guys are defenetly near 6'1 185,5 at theyr low
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Sep/18
Look more solid 185cm than David Dastmalchian and Bill Hader.
Littlelee168cm said on 22/Aug/18
I remember him for his very brief appearance in the horror film feast think he was in it for maybe one minute before being killed by the creatures. 6 foot is what I'd have guessed but I can believe this too maybe 6ft and one half inch
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
The average guess might be what he measured it.
Luker said on 16/Nov/17
6'1" guys legs are stretched out a lot more, and therefore are quite easy to differentiate from anything below, even a guy just under at 184 cm. Eric Dane and Josh Holloway are the best examples of this.
Junior said on 4/Nov/17
Look closer to 6'1 then many other 6'1 claim actors.
berta said on 6/Oct/17
this guy is one of them guys that never look under 185 cm and most of the time could look 186 i think he is about 185,6 guy. little closer to 186 than 185 i feel.
even said on 21/Jul/17
your legit , 6'1" 200 lbs
berta said on 22/Feb/17
yeah this i show a 6 foot 1 guy should look.
Dmeyer said on 29/Nov/16
About 6'1 in person when in thin shoes looked 184 cm And when in big one looked 186cm so 6'1 185 is bang on
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/16
Rob, which of these is most accurate?

A) 188.5cm/186.5cm
B) 188cm/186cm
C) 187.5cm/185.5cm
D) 187cm/185cm
E) 186.5cm/184.5cm
F) 186cm/184cm
Editor Rob
rampage, a C ranger for me, looks a reasonably honest 6ft 1 who claims it.
S.J.H said on 12/Oct/16
He really could be 6'1.25
Johan said on 1/Jul/16
Honest guy on both counts. This is what 90kg -200 pounds at 6'1" looks like.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/16
185/186cm barefoot and 188/189cm in shoes
Alex said on 29/Jun/16
185 barefoot, around 188 with shoes..what you think Rob? He seems around 188 with shoes next to Adam Baldwin.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/16
Rob, could he measure 6ft1¾ range out of bed?
Editor Rob
yeah probably near it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Feb/16
Could look 186-187cm range on Grey's Anatomy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/15
Looks every bit of it and then some....

6ft 1¼in (186cm)
Editor Rob said on 28/Sep/15
Incidentally he does actually claim 6ft 1...
184.9 on a bad day said on 15/Sep/15
Rob do you think 6ft 1.25 - 6ft 1.5 is possible for this guy?
Editor Rob
I don't think he looks as tall as 6ft 1.5, you could probably argue at times he can pull off 186cm though. On last ship, generally I thought roughly 6ft 1.
S.J.H said on 17/Jul/15
He only look 2 to 2.5" shorter than 6ft4 adam baldwin. I can't see a full 3inch on them. Eric dane had to get a upgrade. He should be 6ft1.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/15
Lol he appeared on a beach episode of Saved By The Bell many many moons ago. It's on YouTube. I'll try and post it. He was definitely 2in taller than Mark Paul Gosselaar. They're all barefoot on the beach playing volleyball.
Megmeg said on 1/Sep/14
I think he is just perfect 😍😍😍😍😍
Dmeyer said on 11/Jun/14
I met him several Times he seemed 184cm but had 1cm léss shoes then one. Time he look 186cm but had 1cm more shoes 6'1 is perfect
Dmeyer said on 8/Sep/13
He usualy seemed about 3cm taller than me but i have near 1cm more shoes but then he had a solid 1cm more shoes on time and looked near 5cm taller so 6'1 is bang on , CAN look 184cm in slim shoes and 186cm in thick one 185cm fits the Guy i met him about 10 times
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Sep/13
Rob, if her wife, Rebecca Gayheart, is really 5'6.5 this guy could actually look over 6'2 next to her! Seriously, just look at some photos of them, where she's not wearing heels... There's a very big difference! She's barely above his chin... Maybe between 6'1 and 6'2 is closer for him? And she's more 5'5 range?
Editor Rob
5ft 6 on the nose is likely nearer the mark for her, 5ft 5 I'm not sure she looks just that short.
Jason said on 29/Sep/12
ya how much does he weigh?

LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
ashton kutcher is only half inch taller eric dane but eric listed 6'1and kutcher 6'2.5
ANDREA[ITA] said on 17/Oct/11
But rob i saw a pic of them and eric was almost a full head taller! I neither knew her, i just looked for curiosity, i swear on god i thought she was around 160 because i know that eric is 185! The 170 listing shocked me! Anyway i have to admit its the only photo i saw but they had about same shoes amd normal floor!
Editor Rob
I just looked at them and I think 169 is fair, when she stands poor I'm sure she looks shorter.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 17/Oct/11
Rebecca gayheart is listes at 5'7! If shes that tall, eric is close to 6'4! But she actually nowhere near 5'7! Another one to downgrade, rob!
Editor Rob
that is one where a 5ft 6.5 description of her when she was starting out modelling does exist which does look nearer.
john said on 22/Sep/11

I agree with this listing but why is he listed at 5'11' men's health?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/10
Both Eric Dane and Isiah Washington are 6"0.75(185cm)
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/09

Ange said on 2/Mar/09
Whoa, then Patrick Dempsey must be average height or shorter. I figured this guy for 5'11 tops.
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/09
A patient on Grey's Anatomy guessed him at 5'10-5'11 last night on the show. i don't see how he could be anything under 6' so it is most likely silly writing, but i thought it was worth mentioning.
sighting said on 2/Jan/09
I was at a restaurant and he was leaving with his wife, he walked past me, didnt say anything, im 6'2 and he was like almost as tall as me, 6'1 1/2 sounds right
Anonymous said on 24/Jul/08

Alex said on 19/Jan/08
Actually he has a lot of 6'0 3/4 listings on the net. I wonder if thats his exact measured height or something.
Rob, has he ever quoted his height before?

Editor Rob
not searched for a quote.

6footkate said on 10/Jan/08
yeah. he looks this tall next to mc dreamy
Alex said on 7/Jan/08
I agree with this height. He looks 6'1ish when he was on Charmed.
