Dream, Christopher Kirby is really hard to miss as he look taller than me. Otto look kind of my height. Kirby i'm not surprise is a guy holding a fraction over Owen Benjamin.

I’ll have to look more into Christopher Kirby, but he does look a little taller than Gotz Otto.

I mean Ralf peak could be 6'5.75" but not sure how much he lost now.

@Dream(5'9.5") I'm super curious about Christopher Kirby height. He was in alot of pictures a little taller than Gotz Otto than i use saw one site list Kirby only 6'5 and i was thinking no hack but that iste remove his height away and google doesn't have an answer of his height atual listing, he look way taller 6'5 like a full 6'6.
Gotz Otto stand a little further behind but look like Kirkby bald without hair still edge out his hair top.
without a hair Otto look to be fraction lower than Kirby. Otto hair not that flat style look closer to 3/4 inch high.
Kirby really look like he is 6'6 on the dot.
Btw this picture look on the head Ralf Moeller and Otto is about the same height but look like Otto dropping height, picture taken in 2004 it was a peak height for Ralf also he could have being 6'6.75" same height as Otto. Christopher Kirby could be taller than Bo Burnham, Owen Benjamin and Gotz Otto just three of them. That is interesting when a 6'6 actor one time listed at 6'5.

He actually looks slightly shorter than Ralf Moeller.
Although it's very little. I think Ralf Moeller could be 6'5.625" or even 6'5.75".

I just saw he’s in a new movie with Ralf Moeller...like a low budget version of Conan The Barbarian
Now that will be an interesting comparison!

Strange that he doesn't look taller than a bald 6'5 guy Christopher Kirby but he look fractionally taller than 6'6 director Timo Vuorensola

Glad he has a page big striking guy not a bad actor not great.
He made Brosnan look tiny no idea on comparable footwear but easily 6 6 or 7 onscreen.
Even towered other freakishly tall guy by 3 inches I think.
Had a good build not to skinny but no bodybuilder.

Arch, ironically he's of Jewish descent
Canson said on 21/Aug/16
I'd say 199 range maybe 199.5 out of bed and a weak to full 197 at his lowest. Can't see him below 6'5.5"
Arch Stanton said on 20/Aug/16
Saw Iron Sky recently. I'd forgotten how huge this guy is. Still looks very imposing. Certainly looks around a proper 6'6. Probably a guy who measures 200cm in shoes. Perfect casting as a Nazi too, you could imagine Hitler fantasising about this guy haha.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/16
199/200cm out of bed is likely
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/16
I think 197-198cm is more likely than 199-200cm even though he looked enormous in TND w/h Brosnan. Come to think of it, there were a few very tall guys in that. Otto, Colin Salmon and the late Vincent Schiavelli...
joe 193cm night

Rob, you still think he ta close to 6'7 in the morning period
[Editor Rob: maybe he's a guy who could be 6ft 6.5-.75 range in his 30's out of bed, he might drop to 6ft 5.5 though.]
Arch Stanton said on 1/Dec/14
Rob can you add Downfall, Alien Autopsy and Beowulf ?
Chris said on 30/Aug/14
He doesn't have the head size of someone this height
Arch Stanton said on 20/Aug/14
Also think about it. Given that almost 6'6" is an undesirable height for a film actor, especially if he's trying to break into Hollywood, I really doubt they'd come up with a blagged 6'5.75" if it wasn't genuine.
Sam said on 19/Aug/14
I notice he wears a lot of boxy jackets, which can make he seem like a larger built guy then he really is. Yeah, he can look 196 cm, 198 seems to be a distinct stretch.
said on 17/Aug/14
With 191cm (6'3) Greg Evigan.Click Here
Evigan of course stands closer to the camera but Otto is way taller. If somebody thinks that he's only 193cm than all 6'4 celebs in this board need a downgrade to 6'2. That's all.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Aug/14
From Tomorrow Never Dies you think of him as a Norse giant muscleman type but he's actually naturally a skinny guy and not the bodybuilder type at all. I think he can look near 6'6 in a lot of comparisons but he has the tendency to slouch in a lot of them. In the one taken outdoors with Brosnan he's leaning on a wall and still looks 6'4" range.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Aug/14
@James Nope, I agree he doesn't look even close to 6'7" there, and oddly looks like 6'3" there!
said on 16/Aug/14
Disagree. Look like this will be another Dwayne Johnson topic...
Red you choose the wrong picture to compare D'Arcy and Otto height. And what about this one? Click Here
If D'Arcy 191cm than Otto easly 197. In this photo both stand straight and the shoes are the same. Rob's choice is right.
said on 16/Aug/14
He can be 6'5
[Editor Rob: bear in mind those resume pages don't show fractions as far as I saw, but they do On the Pro page
Andrea said on 16/Aug/14
It's not about downgrading him, Alex. I mean, i myself know a real (not like some on here) solid 198 guy and i know how he looks against people... I hardly find someone who's near his height and he stands out very very much! Then i could name other guys like the big 196 challenger or even Kobe Bryant who's supposed to be not even 6'5! They all look huge next to people! This guy doesn't strike me as a huge guy to be fair! Have you seen him with Sam Riley?
said on 16/Aug/14
Another big and tall guy and come the downgraders. Ralf Moeller is a (former) body builder, Gotz Otto is a simple, tall and slim actor. The compare with Moeller is totally wrong. Another thing...Iron Sky casts are very tall cast. On the left side of the photo what Andrea linked, Christopher Kirby is 6'5 (196cm), the director in front Timo Vuorensola is 6'6 (198cm). Otto stands a little bit behind but this is a good picture to compare: Click Here
Here is Otto's height exactly the same like Timo's. C'mon guys!!! 6'2 or 6'3 for Otto??? Why not 6'1? Case closed.
Amaze said on 15/Aug/14
He looked huge to me in tnd. Stamper looked menacing and gigantic next to brosnan. If brosnan was a strong 6'1 there was more than a 3 in difference between them. Like 5 inchs hehe

As I suspected, look at his footwear in Tomorrow Never Dies Click Here Look like lifts. As I say he did look near 6'7" in that film and looks noticeably shorter in photographs nowadays. Click Here With Brosnan at the Munich premiere, he can still look near 6'6" though.
Dont get pissed with me arch but in that photo of him walking down the street just too look at him without knowing his height I would guess 6ft3 or 6ft2 buts its just a pic and he's walking 'mid stride'.
Next to brosnan of course he looks around 6'6. He does not give of the same 'huge' impression as a guy like Ralf Molier.
said on 15/Aug/14Click Here
With Sam Riley, who could not even be 6'1, he doesn't look much over 6'3...
And what about this? Three men, all over 6'5? o.O (Also the women look tall, btw)
Just looking at his photos, he really doesn't strike me as a nearly 6'6 guy!!!
I mean, if i think about that big challenger guy or even my solid 198 friend they just look very very tall. You really think he's so tall, Rob? A guy who comes to my mind as a guy who is really near 6'6 is that mayor De Blasio, who really does look huge in every photo and looks it next to guy like Obama...

LOL James if you thought he only looked 6'4" in Tomorrow Never Dies there's little hope for Clint Eastwood. He had 5 inches on Brosnan in Tomorrow Never Dies and lie 6 inches on Jonathan Pryce, much taller than strong 6'4" Colin Salmon ever looked in comparison to Pierce. He pulled off looking 2 metres in that film. In photos though I generally see he looks more a 6'5-6'6" guy than near a legit 6'7" though.

What would his morning height be? 6'7?
[Editor Rob: on a good day he could be quite near it]
James B said on 14/Aug/14
I would have gussed 6'4 in tomorrow never dies
Emil 182.5 cm said on 14/Aug/14
Thans you for adding him,Rob! Are you going to add Nikolaj Lie Kaas too?
Amaze said on 14/Aug/14
Always looked 6'6 to me or around it
@arch stanton pierce is 186cm right or 6'1.25? Yeah gotz is just like 5 in taller than gotz. Pierce is perfect height to me so i think imo gotz is too tall. But he had a good build for "stamper" very convincing. Must be 200cm or near 6'7 in footwear. Pierce 6'2 in footwear.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Aug/14
Finally you added him :-) I've seen 199 or 200cm listed for him but was probably a footwear measurement. I'd say 6'5.75" is probably a legitimate barefoot measurement. He could pass for 6 ft 7 in Tomorrow Never Dies and had about 5 inches on Brosnan. In Tomorrow he had to duck through the doorway in one scene and he looked huge next to the door in the Elliot Carver conference thing back room.Scenes of him on the boat he looks 6'7" on screen. I wonder though if they did things to make him look even more imposing and taller though like lifts or whatever.
