Maybe you could add his 'From' co-star, Scott McCord, Rob? Thanks. Been putting a lot of height requests out there - cheers again.
Editor Rob
He's one actor I'm not so familiar with. From was on my watchlist, which is huge really πŸ˜‹

He looks 3cm taller than you in picture. I think he is 176,7-177,2cm.
Almost 180cm guy said on 14/Aug/20
Today when Harold is 57 years old I would say that the loss of height might already be possible now. But 5ft 10.25 as his peak height may be what he could measured. He could often look like a 179 cm guy, for example in this photo from 2005 with Josh Holloway and Daniel Dae Kim: Click Here
Here are some other photos of Harold with Dae Kim from 2005: Click Here Click Here
I also found other photos of Harold and Daniel together from 2006: Click Here Click Here Click Here
In 2006, Harold could also look no more than two inches shorter than Terry O'Quinn: Click Here Click Here
Harold could often look like 5ft 10.5 but overall I would give him a 5ft 10.25 in his prime. Rob, what would you say?
Editor Rob
Harold is a pretty fit guy, whether he lost anything by early 50's is hard to say. Some guys won't lose anything by then, others might.

I can see the argument for 5ft 10 an change. In person I would class him as a typical 5ft 10 guy, but not as tall as 5ft 10.5 guys. However, there would be a greater chance of measuring just over 5ft 10 than under for Harold...
Vsquad said on 13/Jul/20
I'm honestly surprised Harold hasn't claimed any higher than 5'10. On LOST he held up quite well next to 6'1/6'2 guys like Matthew Fox and Josh Holloway. I remember guessing him at 5'11.
Nik Ashton said on 9/Dec/19
He’s cool too! All heights are cool!
Mm said on 28/Jun/19
He doesn’t quite look 5’10 in the photo. Maybe he wakes up 5’10...but here he looks 5’9.5
Nik said on 23/Jun/19
The average vote works out to be 5'9.96" after 96 votes!
Bwk said on 12/Feb/19
He doesn't look a full 5'10'' here to me. I'm seeing 177.5cm for him.
Gracian said on 24/Nov/18
Okay, Rob, I'll compromise. Since 5'10" and 1/8 inch is number what he could measure, I'm sure Harold deserves this rating. Please, Rob give him a 1/8 inch upgrade.
Editor Rob
Well that can be your estimate. I wouldn't say it was wrong, because he may well measure it. I'm still ok with keeping him 5ft 10 just now though.
Nik said on 29/Jul/18
I reckon he is, you know! I think 5'10" - 5'10.25" is liable for Harold!
Gracian said on 13/Jul/18
Rob, I think it's time to upgrade for Harold. Here are his photos alongside Diane Lane (listed on your website as 5'5.5"): Click Here

Harold looks a lot taller than her, even though she has a lot of heels over him. Harold never looked much shorter than Terry O'Quinn at LOST, here are their photos from the event in January 2006: Click Here
Click Here
Terry could still still be around 184 cm in this time, even considering Harold's light footwear over Terry, Harold still does not look as short as a flat 5'10". Rob, since you met Matt Ryan, I do not believe Matt can be under 5'10" because it does not look like this in the picture next to you, but Harold looks taller than Matt. In this photo, when Matt has the advantage of shoes over Harold, they look like a similar height:

But when their footwear is similar, Harold looks taller than Matt:

Rob, you said that one centimeter can easily disappear in the picture, but height difference between Harold and Matt looks much. You also said that Harold might look anywhere from 5'10" to 5'10.5". After all I've seen, I'm just sure Harold is taller than flat 5'10". I still believe 5'10.25" is right for him. Rob, what is your opinion now?
Editor Rob
Harold and Matt are very close in person, it would probably need a measurement to tell if one was a small fraction greater.
Gracian said on 22/May/18
Rob, thanks you for telling me that you understand my estimate I want to argue about. I am not asking you for 5'11" but only 5'10.25" for Harold. Please, look at this photo of Harold alongside Maggie Grace, Naveen Andrews and Daniel Dae Kim: Click Here
Jeremy Renner looks at least two inches shorter than Harold, and Robert Carlyle looks very short next to him: Click Here
Harold looks a not much shorter than Josh Holloway, and Daniel Dae Kim looks very short next to Harold: Click Here
Between Harold and William Hurt, full 4 inches is a bit too much, Harold does not look much lower than Hurt: Click Here
Click Here
Harold is shorter than Hugo Weaving maximum 3 and a half inches, Weaving should get downgrade to 6'1.75", besides Harold does not look much shorter than Keanu Reeves: Click Here
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here
Rob, will you give Harold an upgrade to 5'10.25", now?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure I would, but 5ft 10 1/8th isn't impossible, that may well be a figure he might measure.
Gracian said on 15/May/18
Rob, I'd still like to argue 5'10.25" for Harold. Harold is taller than Matt Ryan (whom you met and gave him the 5'10" list). Please Rob, look at their when Matt Ryan has more shoes, they look like a similar height: Click Here
However, when their footwear is similar, Harold looks taller than Matt Ryan: Click Here

Even in the show, Harold looked higher: Click Here
With Peter Fonda he looked only a little shorter than Fonda in 1998: Click Here
Between Harold and William Hurt, there were not four inches of difference, in the Matrix and Lost Harold did not look like ordinary 5'10", also in the pictures of many events. Rob, I think that 5'10.25" fits perfectly for Harold.
Zampo said on 2/May/18
177-178 cm, based on the photo, you can see he is not as low as the 176 claims. Firstly his hairline is about 174 cm range. Hairline to the top of the head tends to be roughly 1.5 inches on average, which would put him at 177.8cm exact. I reckon however though that his is probably the just over 3 cm. I would peg him at 177.5ish cm. Probably would measure higher if told to stand at his tallest.
Gracian said on 24/Mar/18
I think that 5'10.25" will simply be the best match for Harold. Here are some other proofs:
With Leonardo Dicaprio: Click Here
With Nona Gaye: Click Here
With Matthew Fox and Josh Holloway (Josh stands closer to the camera, and Matthew and Harold are just as far away): Click Here
With Ian Somerhalder: Click Here
With Maggie Grace and Daniel Dae Kim (Daniel is closer to the camera and Maggie and Harold are just as far away: Click Here
With Terry O'Quinn: Click Here
Click Here
With Maggie Grace: Click Here
Watching a lot of movies and TV series and various photos of Prime Minister Harold does not really look as low as 5'10". There are many arguments that it really looks over 5'10". Next to Dicaprio in "Romeo + Juliet" he looked up to max 1 inch shorter than him. In "Lost" did not look much shorter than Terry, Matthew and Josh, besides, Dae Kim looks very shortly next to him, Somerhalder atleast 1 inch shorter, and between him and Maggie can sometimes see more than just one inch difference. In the "Matrix" alongside Nona Gaye (mentioned on your website as 5'10"), Harold clearly looks taller, and between him and Hugo Weaving in the "Matrix" he really did not look like 4 inch shorter. I really believe in 5'10.25" for Harold after all I saw, I'm sure he really has quarter-inch over 5'10". Harold and Jude Law look for more solid guys with a strong 5'10" range than Daniel Craig and I'm sure they are not shorter from him! Please, Rob, read everything I wrote and take my opinion and arguments into account.
Tall Sam said on 26/Feb/18
One of the few 5'10" listed guys to actually look a bit over that mark. I definitely don't think 5'10.25" should be ruled out.
Gracian said on 24/Feb/18
Rob, please answer me what you think about my proposal to give Harold peak height 5'10.25" and current height 5'9.75".
Editor Rob
I am not sure he really has lost anything, he looks a fit and healthy guy. Whether he could be classed 5ft 10.25 is still debatable, I think he looked one of those guys who would measure right on 5ft 10 range.
Bobby said on 11/Feb/18
That looks 1.25-inch difference, not anymore close to 2 inches.
Vexacus said on 8/Feb/18
Yeah , he looks 5'10 , I just watched him in Z Nation .
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 27/Jan/18
give a 5'9.75" downgrade please.
Editor Rob
I don't think I could, I would say he is a typical 5ft 10 actor, who is honest.
Anonymous said on 12/Dec/17
Rob can we please get the height chart thing in the background. Thank you
Gracjan said on 7/Oct/17
Indeed Rob, I still think it would be cool to give Harold his peak height of 5'10.25" and the current height of 5'9.75". Fortresses that it would be good for him to update, and most people in the comments would be happy then.
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
176 area. 5'9.5".

Rob, please answer me.
Editor Rob
in person he just didn't seem over it to me, of course 5ft 10 and a little bit isn't impossible, he can sometimes look it with other people.
Gracjan said on 13/Aug/17
I propose to update Harold's height. Once it looked higher than 5ft10in, so I suggest updating its peak as 5'10ΒΌ". Today, unfortunately, being 54 years old, he looks less than 5ft10in what we see in the picture with you, I think today is 5'9ΒΎ". I think 178.4 cm as its peak and 177.2 cm as its current height would be fair and reliable for him. Rob, can you update his height according to my suggestion?
brad said on 11/Aug/17
why you gave him 177.8 ? i saw a lot of actors still at 178cm.
Editor Rob
he's given 5ft 10, it's just the cm is displayed now to 1 decimal place.
Adijos said on 7/Aug/17
Happy Birthday Harold Perrineau! πŸŽŠπŸŽ‚πŸ“¦πŸ’πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ

Rob, you can make Harold a birthday present and update him a quarter inches higher πŸ˜‰.
Adijos said on 22/Jul/17
@Editor Rob:On this page there are some pictures of Harold alongside Vanessa Ferlito: Click Here I would like to argue again for Harold's coverage of 5'10ΒΌ". I hope Rob will upgrade him to that height.
even said on 19/Jul/17
hes correct height = 5'9.75"
Gracjan said on 24/Jun/17
@Editor Rob: Personally, I do not think Harold is just 5'10". On the Internet, I have a lot of information that either speaks for him 5'10" (178 cm) or 5'10.5"(179 cm), somewhere I even read somewhere 5'11"(180 cm). In the comments also someone once wrote that he saw him live and that he is 5'11 "although I do not think he was in such range... I always saw him as 5'10.5" because he looked more or less like now I'm not sure... Maybe the 5'10.25"(close to 178.5 cm) would be perfect for him? Here's a photo of Matrix actors: Click Here
Adijos said on 18/Jun/17
Okay Rob, I apologize for that I'm writing about it so much, but I believe Harold is a bit taller ... To finish this topic, I present Harold's picture with Maggie Grace and Daniel Dae Kim, I think with a clear conscience 5'10.25"πŸ˜‰

I also noticed that in the fourth season Lost Harold Perrineau and Henry Ian Cusick on the ship look really very similar height.

Looks 5 ft 9.25
Namor said on 28/Apr/17
More 176.5-77 cm tall
Guest66 said on 19/Apr/17
@ Adijos, Rob is not having footwear advantage on that photo with Harold. I still think Harold doesn't look over 177cm.
Adijos said on 12/Apr/17
Rob, considering that in this photo, in your shoes you are about 1 inch (2-3 cm) over Harold, and that Harold is 54 years old this year, Harold can actually be 5'10.5" (179 cm ) tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Apr/17
Also in The Edge
Guest66 said on 30/Mar/17
Rob, he doesn't look any taller than guy like Elden Henson with you, and you even had footwear advantage on pic with Henson.
5'9.75 for Harold at least, maybe even 5'9.5
Editor Rob
Harold I wouldn't go under 5ft 10 really, he's looked through his career a good example of 5ft 10 I thought. Henson isn't much smaller though, but then he's nearly 5ft 10 too.
Strong 5ft9 said on 29/Mar/17
Hey Rob, do you have a shoewear advantage over him? Is this why 5'10" looks hard to tell?
Editor Rob
both around 1 inch.
John said on 24/Mar/17
Rob which one is the strongest 5'10 him or manu bennett ?
Editor Rob

well manu, harold are very similar I feel, I honestly couldn't say who would measure taller.
Don't know what to claim(5'11") said on 21/Mar/17
The eye level threw me off, but I can see 5'9.5-5'10 because of the forehead difference.
Revisionist said on 16/Mar/17
Like everyone else, I see a very solid 5'9.5 here, possibly pushing towards 5'9.75 out of generosity.

Harold wakes up at 5'10 so a fair claim overall.
Rick said on 15/Mar/17
Doesn't look 5'10 here. Unless Rob has a footwear advantage I'd say 177cm.
Kd said on 13/Mar/17
Rob, he looks more 5'9.5 to me. What do you wake up at? Must be very near 5'9.
Editor Rob
usually 5ft 8.75 range and at low mark 5ft 8 1/8th..
Paleman said on 6/Mar/17
Could you add his role as Augustus Hill in Oz to his TV series credits, Rob? Became known as the narrator of the series well before Lost.

As for his height, I always thought he was closer to a weak 5'11", but if he says he's 5'10" then he's 5'10"...
Bobby said on 6/Mar/17
5'10, not a chance of it. He seems more like 5'9.5, wouldn't guess as high as 5'9.75 though. Id think his morning height would be 5'10, which would explain his claim but for most of the day he'd be 5'9.75 and be 5'9.5 at night. Either way, I'm not seeing 5'10 for this guy unless Rob is wearing shoes that gives him more height.

Edit: Then again, based on eye level, and forehead difference, 5'10 seems like an okay listing for this guy, my initial impression was 5'9.5 but I can see 5'10 as well.
Marquis said on 4/Mar/17
Not seeing 2 inches of height diff between Rob and Harold in the pic.

oscar 5'9 said on 3/Mar/17
needs update to 5'9.75" max. he looks 5'9.5".
Johno said on 22/Feb/17
I quite clearly remember how tall he looked to Leonardo and Keanu ...
Lisk said on 21/Feb/17
5'10 is correct.
John B said on 20/Feb/17
Look a lot better with out those glasses Rob :)
Editor Rob
I wear glasses a lot...and in photoshoots up till it's nearly my turn then take them off.
Chris said on 20/Feb/17
This does not look like the same difference between you and Dylan O'Brien..
John said on 20/Feb/17
So would you qualify him as a weak 5'10 ?
Editor Rob
John, I still think he is nearer 5ft 10 flat than 9.5.
Guest66 said on 19/Feb/17
Somehow I'm feeling he will measure 177cm, so he may be almost 5'10" but not quite.
Gman said on 16/Feb/17
Don't forget folks, Rob is a strong 5'8". I believe in one of his videos Rob measures himself at more than 5'8.5" - isn't that correct Rob? This photo of Rob with Harold is exactly how I(5'8.75 evening)look with my 5'10.25 friend.
Editor Rob
at the London Film Con we were doing a dealer stall, so left from hotel at 8am and at venue at 8.30. I am far more active at events, being on feet a lot and walking about...compared to being at house on computer.
jtm said on 16/Feb/17
I still think he's a legit 5'10 despite the picture with rob.
Andrea said on 16/Feb/17
You mean a bit more difference? If Harold is a true 5'10er, Matt must be somewhere in 6'1 range, possibly a bit over (like listed) but certainly not as tall as he claims... Click Here
A guy like Mike Tyson looks at least 2 cms taller than him with you but, if you list both of them at 5'10, they must look pretty close in person, more than their pictures suggest! I think you can rule out 5'10+ for Harold, though... I wouldn't have ruled out something like 5'10.25 before you met him but I guess that a guy like Josh looks more of a solid 5'10 in person, doesn't he? To conclude, I still think 5'10 is a good shout for Harold! It's just a shame that he looks nowhere near that mark with you ☹
Editor Rob
there's not much between harold, josh, a fraction maybe, but not like 3/4 of an inch or anything that big!
Dan said on 15/Feb/17
Rob you sure about your listing? If you're 173 this guy looks no more than 176 in my opinion.
Editor Rob
I'm sure he looked taller than 176, at absolute lowest estimate I'd have said 177.
Andrea said on 14/Feb/17
Rob, do you think this is how you'd look next to Matthew, ROUGHLY? Click Here
Editor Rob
Andrea, I'd expect possibly a bit less, but it would all depend how well Matthew stands in photos, sometimes he looks a bit loose.
Shredder said on 13/Feb/17
This might be a Michael Biehn shot , where Rob is the one looking taller , making the Celeb look around an inch taller than they actually are?.
Editor Rob
harold isn't really much different in person than big Zach Galligan...apart from harold claiming 5ft 10 and zach 5ft 11, there's barely anything in it!
Andrea said on 13/Feb/17
Well, I never look at eyelevels... I'm saying that based on the "actual" difference!
This guy really does look 176 range, CONSIDERING his hair (which I doubt are flat) πŸ˜‰
But hey if a guy like Richard Madden is 176 (and doesn't look over 174 with you), I don't see why Harold could ever be listed under 178 😜
travis said on 13/Feb/17
so he 5'10 why are people comment this unless they are short themselves
GP said on 13/Feb/17
Any mention of the shoes? I see his posture is weaker, though I doubt he is losing about an inch with you. I could see him measure 5'10" few hours out of bed, but most likely drops to 177 by midday. He also could be rounding up to 5'10" since not many people give quarters in US. System in US is very odd, for any identification you can't put quarters, so it's accepted here to round down a quarter and round up when it's half. Military does the same. Very honest regarding his height for an actor πŸ˜†
Editor Rob
pretty close footwear, within a few mm's.
gman said on 13/Feb/17
Remember folks, Rob's morning, out of bed height is 5'9 correct Rob? Rob is a little taller than y'all think- he is modest with his 5'8 claim. Harold is 5'10.
Editor Rob
at this London Con, it's different than being about the house, I'm out the hotel each day at 8am, to get to venue at 8.30, then helping set up our stall for the day. I don't drink as much as I'd do at home, so I guarantee I will be at my low range for most photos.
Johan said on 13/Feb/17
Would have said 177 cm is arguable, remember Rob is strong 173 cm, comes in sometimes closer to 174 cm at times on the stadiometer.

So he can look maybe 5'9.5" max there but a half inch in a pic is easy to lose. Always looked 5'10" in everything he has done. Honest claim.
Powerhouse said on 13/Feb/17
Ridiculous listing, nothing over 5'9.25.
Andrea said on 13/Feb/17
He really doesn't look much different than the 176 challenger girl in the photo...
Editor Rob
I certainly guessed him taller than her, although she has an eyelevel closer to 4 inches than 4.5, which is an advantage.
berta said on 13/Feb/17
but the photo is taken from below aint aint it? THAT MAKES THE HEIGHT DIFFERENCE SEEMS LESS looks barely 176 in the photo
Shredder said on 13/Feb/17
I'm not seeing more than 5'9 unless he is losing height or the angle
Strong 5ft9 said on 12/Feb/17
Then again, he is in his 50's. It's possible he might've shrunk.
Strong 5ft9 said on 12/Feb/17
Rob, do you think 5'9.5" seems more likely. The other 5'10" guys you took photos with don't look quite as small unless he has a shoe disadvantage. It's possible he could've rounded up his height.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have guessed 5ft 9.5 for him that day.

5'9 flat.

5'10 for him here is laughable unless rob has a considerable footwear advantage.
Victor Surratt said on 12/Feb/17
Weak 5'10, but it is a honest claim.
Danny0101 said on 12/Feb/17
At most 176cm with Rob. Funny to see the 181cm estimates from the people below, who have supposedly met him.
Editor Rob
he's far from being 181cm, but many guys around Harold's height will claim 5ft 11 without a second's thought...

I think there are actors from Lost who are pretty reasonable with their height claims, guys like Josh Holloway and Terry O'Quinn and Harold...
Arthur said on 12/Feb/17
I don't know, he doesn't really look a solid 5'10 in the photo. 177-178 range
Johnson said on 12/Feb/17
In the picture with Rob, he looks less than 5'10!
Peter 179cm said on 12/Feb/17
Looks more like 176cm,maybe 177 earlier in the day.
Andrea said on 12/Feb/17
So... What's going on this time, Rob?? 😟
He doesn't look over 176 in the picture... And hey, I was one of those guys who thought he was a decent 5'10! Of course, you must think he looked around his claim in person or you would have downgraded him but he looks much closer to 5'9 than 5'10 in the picture... Seriously, look at him and Dominic Monaghan with you. There's about the same difference and if anything it seems a bit more with Dom, visually! Too bad, again... 😰
Giorgi said on 12/Feb/17
Did you downgrade him, Rob?
berta said on 12/Feb/17
ps this guy never age he have looked the same for almost 20 years
berta said on 12/Feb/17
lost was a strANGE SHOW THAT I THINK MAYBE MADE EVERYONE LOOK LITTLE TALLER THAN THEY REALLY ARE in this photo its pretty clear that he is ma 178. Rob in your opinion was he legit 178 ore could he be a little under. in the photo he looks 176 BUT is it taken from a lower angle? that makes the height difference less. in that case he looks this height
Shredder said on 12/Feb/17
I believe his claim but he looks 5'9 here
Astaroth said on 22/Jan/17
More like 5'9
berta said on 5/Jan/17
this guy really is the height he claims before i sa the height he was listed here i actually thought he was strong 180 guy. He must be atleast 178 could even be 179 in my eyes on a good day
Andrea said on 18/Jun/16
Rob, i've read he's going to the London Comic Con too... Another very good name! Just hope you will catch them all xD
As for Harold, he has always looked a decent 5'10 to me! I wouldn't be surprised if he was a bit taller than this in person...
Editor Rob
we'll see if he is there on the day
shawn said on 20/Apr/15
How does he look so short on Sons Of Anarchy? He barely looks 5'9 next to some of the cast
MD said on 22/Nov/14
This is about right. He's really close in height to 5'10" Matt Ryan:

And Ryan seems to have an ever-so-slightly more casual stance in both of these photos relative Perrineau who seems to be getting every centimeter out of his height. lol
trav said on 20/Nov/14
I saw the best man holiday he about 5'11
cole said on 20/May/14
I strongly believe he should at least get 5'10.5. He looked taller than Morris Chestnut and not much shorter than Terrence Howard in 'The Best Man Holiday'.
He wasn't 2in shorter than Charlie Hunnam in SOA either...
cole said on 21/Feb/14
I could agree with 182 cm for Terrence, but not much under that, he has a poor posture most of the time. Perrineau looks more 179-180 than a flat 5'10 to me either way.

i doubt terrence howard is taller than 5'11.
Balrog said on 8/Jan/14
Cole, Howard was shorter than legit 6'0" Christensen and also Channing Tatum had at least a couple cm on him. He is more 5'11.5" so Perrineau could be 5'10.25" or 5'10.5". He does deserves an upgrade to me, but not by much. Similar to Omar Epps who also claims 5'10"
Sam said on 8/Jan/14
I definitely think this guy is somewhere in the 5'10"-5'11", close to the latter. He seems more than a flat 5'10", often being close next to six foot range guys on Lost.
cole said on 7/Jan/14
Watch the movie "The Best Man Holiday". He looks pretty close in height with 6ft Terrence Howard throughout the film. He's either underplaying his height by an inch or so or he's honest and guys like Howard is lying. Generally Howard looks spot on 6ft, his claim is believable, so I'd say 5'11 at least for Perrineau.

according to this site alex baldwin is taller than Perrinau, but in the movie "the edge" Perrinau seems clearly taller than Baldwin and also Anthony Hopkins

Possible 5'10.5" Rob?
Editor Rob
he can look 5ft 10-10.5 range
Mr. R said on 15/Dec/13
I saw him one night in Hollywood. He is over 5-11. He does not look that tall on tv.
Dom said on 12/Dec/13
He also had more than 2 inches on 5Β΄8.5 michael emerson. He definitely could be a 5Β΄11 and change guy.
Dom said on 11/Dec/13
For a 5Β΄10 guy he seems much taller on LOST. I would have thought 5Β΄11 range. He didnΒ΄t appear to be dwarfed by 6Β΄2ers Matt Fox and Terry OΒ΄Quinn.
kevin said on 21/Nov/12
this guy must be taller than just 178cm. in seeking justice he was almost the same height as nic cage (182-183cm). he could be 179cm.
Mr. R said on 27/Oct/11
I have seen Harold a few times around Hwood, and he is closer to 5-11.
Godred said on 24/Oct/11
I think he`s what he says he is.

Same with Forest Whitaker
Martyr said on 11/Mar/11
2 inches shorter than William Hurt. So I agree with Gonzalo, 5'11-6'
Gonzalo said on 3/Dec/10
He looked taller than that in Lost. He looked around 1`80-82.

3 inches above 5'8 is 5'11. where did you get 5'10.75 from? that would be 2.75 inches above. and what measuring device are you using in order to determine 3/4 of an inch?

Editor Rob
Of course it's hard to tell, so think of the 3/4's or 1/4's in some cases as saying they are close but I think there is a chance they might not be quite 5ft 11 or whatever.
DMEYER said on 7/Oct/08
he looked 3 in above 5 FT 8 andrews this guy is about 5 FT 10.75
Caesar said on 13/Sep/08
On Lost and in photo shoots he actually looks closer to 6'0 than 5'10. It's odd that he says he's 5'10. I think he is at least 5'11.
dmeyer said on 11/Jul/07
181 means he dosnt look a full in uns=der a 6 ft guy or he looks 1.25 in taller than a 5'10er
antron said on 4/Oct/06
5'10" barefoot, I agree. In that group shot Terry O'Quinn looks a little shorter, but I think its just the angle.
MD said on 10/Sep/06
I'm thinking 5'10.5", as well.
Mr. R said on 25/Jun/06
Saw Harold few weeks ago, and he is just below 5'11".
D. Ray Morton said on 3/Jun/06
Yeah, Reeves does look like he's leaning forward a little, whereas Perrineau's posture looks ramrod straight.
sam said on 18/May/06
He does look about 3 inches taller in this one:

MD said on 17/May/06
If we give Dominic Monohaugn (spelling?) 5'7.5" (and I think it's more exactly like 5'7" which he gave on his driver's license), can Harold really be a full 5'11"

I'm not sure if I see a full 3" difference, there.

I remember reading something were he said, in reaction to an interviewer digging for spoilers from those awful Matrix sequels, he said something like "All I can tell you is that I'm 5'10" and black". But also, when the whole cast of Lost is standing together at award shows, he usually doesn't look more than a couple inches shorter than the cast members who are well over 6 feet, i.e. Matthew Fox, Terry O'Quinn, Josh Holloway & Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

In the film "Woman on Top", Perrineau plays a female impersonator, who is described as "5 foot 10, great legs, and she's a man".
D. Ray Morton said on 12/Feb/06
Standing next to 5'11" Eric Millegan ("Bones") in the Sundance press portraits for "On Line," he does look to be about this height.

As a huge "Oz" fan, I'd always thought he was shorter. Maybe the wheelchair had something to do with that.
