After watching more seriously movies and tv shows he appeared, i agree he is taller than i thought. 176-177 sounds good. Great actor.

@Rob: Thanks. In this scene, Lewis looks to edge out JCVD to me, but not by much: Click Here
at 47 seconds, btw. My best guess is over 5'9" flat, but no taller than 5'9.5". He's certainly not as tall next to Van Damme as James Remar was in The Quest and no taller than Michael Rooker was in Replicant, but I can buy Rooker at a bit over 5'9" peak.
Geoffrey Lewis may also be a good reference for determining how much taller than 6'3" Clint Eastwood was. In fairness, Stallone could pass for as tall as 5'11" at times in Tango and Cash. I still have a hard time seeing Lewis at a full inch taller than Stallone, whom I suspect was around the 5'8.75" range.
Yeah there was a scene later on in a bar I think and Lewis again seemed to edge him...given he has no hair on top!

Look at him alongside a weak 5'9" Stallone beginning around 2:56 here: Click Here
Stallone is wearing 2" heeled boots, but looks solidly taller. Based on this, it's difficult to see Lewis at over 5'9.5".
Yet with 5'9" Mel Gibson, Lewis looked at least half an inch taller: Click Here
He was also taller than Gibson in Maverick. Based on this, Lewis doesn't seem shorter than Gibson.
Perhaps comparing Lewis to Van Damme in Double Impact would give the best idea.
I'd watched Double Impact not long ago, there was a scene inside and Lewis looked taller than Jean

Seems to fluctuate but I'd agree with 5'9.5" when I recall Moon of the Wolf beside Royal Dano then later in Eastwood's company.. he did seem to have a long neck and triangular shoulders which might have added to his perception though... I'm favouring 176cm

great actor, often not enought recognized for his talent, just died! Otherwise, I would say more 174 cm standing next to eastwood.

He really doesn't appear to be 5'9" in the films he acted in along side Eastwood. But, then again, along side of Eastwood he will appear quite a bit shorter even at 5'9"

I've changed my mind about this fellow. Saw him in Man without a Face and Maverick next to Mel Gibson
and Lewis looks like 1 full inch taller than Gibson in several shots. So 5'9" should be right......but then how tall is Mel!!??

There must be a mistake. This guy looks much shorter in every movie or TV show he appears. Maybe he was taller in his youth but nowadays he looks around than 5ft 7".
