184cm peak.

i think as i said before that nolte was close to 184 peak and gary busey was not under 183. If i had to shoose i would say nolte may have edged him with 5 mm

Nick Nolte definitely could appear 6ft1 at times in the past but Busey even 20-30 years back could look a weak 6ft

Gary busey and Nick Nolte, lookalikes are both guys who can look 6 ft 1 at times.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Jan/17
Barely shorter than Don Stroud in The Buddy Holly Story, looked nearer 6'1 with him!

peaka a little over 6 ffet maybe and now lost 1 inch maybe he is 72 years old

I voted avidly for him on 'Celebrity Big Brother' as I found his upsetting of White Dee quality entertainment!
Heightwise, I'd give him a fraction over 6ft, even nowadays.

Always seemed like a classic 5'11-6'0 guy to me. 5'11.75" / 182 cm peak and now maybe 5'11.25"/180.5 cm or 5'11" /180 cm flat.

I am watching Lethal Weapon as we speak. I believe he was close to 6' in his youth but he is closer to 5'11'' these days IMHO.
James B said on 3/Apr/16
He looks more in the 5'11 range to me than a full 6ft.

but then with Keanu reeves he really did look the height he is listed here.
Judd ISR said on 17/Sep/15
6' for his peak height is believable but he could have been also a 5'11.5" with good proportions...

Predator 2 (1990)

Gary Busey has a conversation with 6'3" Danny Glover standing directly in front of him both, wearing normal footwear. Looked like a 4 inch difference to me, 3,5 inch at least.

Always looked no taller than 5'11 in his movies

Disagree. He looked 6ft in Point Break, Under Siege and Drop Zone. Nowadays he might heading towards 5ft11 at 70

5'11'' and 6'0'' are the most tricky to guess.
Some can look 5-9 while others can look 6-3.

Either way, 6-0 is a very common height.

Strange but he only looks about 2 inches taller than Dustin Hoffman in Straight Time!!!
jtm said on 17/Oct/13
i am not convince reeves is taller than 6'.
Scott five eleven said on 15/Oct/13
He was the same height as keanu reeves in point break. And reeves is listed 6'1. Footwear difference in the movie? He looks to be a strong 6 foot to me. Maybe 184cm?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/13
Rob, if he looks like a 182cm guy, why isn't he listed at that?
Don J said on 16/Sep/12
hes max 5,11 Met him in person
Mr. R said on 7/Jun/12
Saw Gary driving through Hwood the other day. In his Benz convertible, he looked to be about 3 feet tall. LOL
Ajax said on 14/Nov/11
6'2" never. 5'11.5 sounds right
LAN Jiao said on 4/Nov/11
at peak he look from 5'11-5'11.75. not sure which is his truth peak. nowdays he had to be flat 5'11
Joe Bloggs said on 9/Jul/11
It was mentioned at the time he played Buddy Holly that he was 6ft2/1m87...was someone in the publicity dept overstating the disparity between Busey and the real-life Holly(avg ht) for effect?
LARIck said on 4/Jul/11
I deplaned at LAX with this guy; he had cowboy boots on and was my height, 6'1". The boots may have given him a solid 1 1/2" so I would say 5'11.5 give or take a .5".
RICHARD said on 22/Jun/11
Looked about 2 inches taller than Mel Gibson,and about 5 inches under Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon,though in Under Siege he had about an inch over Tommy Lee Jones(6'0.5),though looked 5 inches under Seagal,too.I'd say a strong 182 cm for peak height,now probably a flat 5'11
Bon_ said on 13/Jun/11
I would say 6'0.25 at peak, and I agree he doesn't really look tall on screen, probably because of posture?
James said on 12/Apr/11
appears smaller than 6'0 on screen
tell-em said on 24/Mar/11
they are the same height in point break. both 6'0" guys.
James said on 23/Mar/11
Gary Busey 5'11.75
Keanu Reeves 6'0.75?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Nov/10
5"11(180cm) taller
James said on 17/Mar/07
Strangely dident look that much shorter than Steven Seagel in Under Seige.
Derek said on 25/Dec/06
6' is about right. His son Jake towers over him. Jake must be at least 6'4".
Height Tracker said on 20/Dec/06
You should list his son Jake Busey. They look and sound very similiar, but I'm pretty sure Jake actually stands around 6'3" or so. He's been in a lot of movies including Starship Troopers. Thanks.

looked about an inch shorter than keanu in point break. so 6 ft seems about right.
dmeyer said on 21/Feb/06
he looks 2.5" shorter than 6'2" lamas 182 sems accurate

[Editor Rob: was 6ft on fit club but he could have been a little under though as they don't list 1/2 inches...]
J. said on 18/Jul/05
He defintely a 6 footer. He actually looks taller than 6'0" on the show but that's just the power of television. The other measured heights for this season's cast are: Jackee Harry- 5'7"; Phil Margera- 5'11"; Toccarra Jones- 5'9"; Jani Lane- 6'0"; Victoria Jackson- 5'5"; Willie "Charles and Charge" Aames- 5'5"; Wendy Kaufman- 5'2"
