He was tall. I agree with the people here and this website. 188cm ( 6`2) is ok for him.

Team of Ghostbusters (year 1984):

Ramis: 188cm
Murray: 187cm
Aykroyd: 185cm
Hudson: 183cm
Weaver: 181cm
Moranis: 165 cm

Rob, Have you watched the Movie Stripes lot of scenes with Murray next to Ramis, I think 6'2 is game for Ramis there were certain scenes where Murray could look taller but I think a legit 6'1 was fine for Bill, John Candy was also in that, I think he is taller than Murray and likely similar to Ramis.
Editor Rob: can't remember how tall he looked now, but at least in Ghostbusters was still near 6ft 2.

Looked it in Ghostbusters and Stripes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16
Rob, is a fraction over 6ft2 possible for Ramis?
Editor Rob: I think at times he could look a big 6ft 2 guy.

Didn't necessarily tower the rest of the team in Ghostbusters but was taller nonetheless.

189cm for Ramis wouldn't surprise me.

I think he looks not quite a full inch over Bill Murray with good posture in Stripes, but you could make an argument that Murray is near 6'1.25" or a mm or so more as well.

It's probably borderline sacrilegious as a comedy fan, but I feel like Caddyshack was overrated in how funny it is...I love Groundhog Day, though. He was clearly a giant influence over a lot of modern comedy and was likeable as Ghostbuster (the tallest one), for which he also reported wrote a lot of the funniest scenes and brought Akyroyd's script down to earth.

I met the guy at a film festival in 2008. The guy was much taller than 6'2". More like 6'4"/6'5". Giant dude. Very nice man.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/13
Well, he might still be 6ft2. It'd be interesting to see a more recent photo of him, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. Maybe if Ghostbusters 3 gets green lighted it's a possibility?
Arch Stanton said on 29/Sep/13
He actually looks 6'2.5" in Ghostbusters next to the others.

"Harold Ramis's height is 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"
"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/12
In Ghostbusters was 0.5in taller than Murray.
So peak height was 6ft2.5(189cm). Today is the same height

His height varies in Ghostbusters ... Sometimes Bill's height and others taller
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jul/12
I saw an episode of The OC where he looked at least
this height. It was a few years old, though. In Ghostbusters
he was 6ft2-6ft3 aswell.

6'3 with shoes possible...
188 cm/ 6'2.1" said on 2/Feb/12
I met Ramis in the spring of 2009 at his home (long story behind this), and based on the picture the two of us took, based on the fact that I looked about 2 inches taller than him, he being barefoot and me wearing some pretty thick running shoes, I think he's closer to 6'1" Maybe he was taller 25 years ago, but not now.
Martyr said on 7/Oct/11
Did not look the same as Bill Murray in Stripes at all!!!!

He looked 188-189, and Murray looked his height, which is 185-186, not a hair over!

The 6'3 look is because of the hair I guess. He was rather 6'2,5 than a weak 6'3

Rob, this guy could look at times almost 2" taller than 6'1.5 Bill Murray in Ghostbusters. He always looked at least one inch taller than both Murray and Aykroyd, and sometimes he could look near 6'4. I'd say this guy was a solid 6'3. Maybe 6'3.5, Rob?? 6'3 for sure, I'm pretty positive about this one, check Ghostbusters 1 again, you'll see.
MsKitty said on 6/Feb/11
I would've guessed 6'3 but I guess his tall hairdo is what makes appear taller than he really is...
Anonymous said on 12/Jan/11
Not quite 6'2. More like 6'1 especially in Stripes. looks the same as Bill Murray.
Hamletmiss said on 8/Jul/07
I always looked at these Ghostbusters in size order - Bill Murray as 6'1", Dan Aykroyd as 6'2", and Harold Ramis as 6'3". Anyone agree with this?
the shredder said on 4/Jan/07
I must agree . I think hes aleast 6 ft 2 ! ... I personally think Bill Murray can look 6'2 - 6'3 range , and this guy looks slightly taller then him in Ghostbusters .

Aykroyd 6'1 , Murray 6'2 , Ramis 6'3 ?????????????

I just watched Orange County. Although there were no scenes of this guy really standing next to anybody to judge his height off of, I will still say he looked tall. However, one thing is for sure: he's gotten significantly fatter than his "Ghostbusters" and "Stripes" days.
Mighty said on 23/May/05
No way he's under 6'2 ...
Look @ the Ghostbusters movies again , he's towering Murray Aykroyd and Hudson (2" at least )... And on your picz he's not standing tall and he' still taller than everyone ...
