He has the appearance however, he will totally look like Superman in the movie, but he isn't tall enough, like most of the main actors in the superhero movies. Superman is supposed to be 6'3, but let's not forget about the others:
- Batman is 6'2 and Christian Bale is barely 6'0;
- Iron Man is 6'1 (and 6'6 in armor) and Robert Downey JR is 5'8;
- Thor is 6'6 and Chris Hemsworth is 6'3;
- Captain America is 6'2 and Chris Evans is 6'0;
The Hollywood industry doesn't seem to care much about height today, they care about appearance and look. So a 6'0.5 Superman is more than acceptable.

Francis - Rhys Meyers wore shoe lifts in The Tudors which took up to almost 6ft as Henry VIII was a tall guy.
Clark Kent said on 28/Aug/11
When you play Superman, you play Clark Kent. Reeves was great in playing the goofy, gangly Clark Kent who had half a foot on everybody around him.
That was his strength : looked strong as Superman and goofy as Kent. Cavill won t cut it ascKent.

Mesay, watch your mouth. It is rude of you to call someone stupid on a public forum.

I really think that all of the Supermen that we have seen had something at first that you can criticize as not good for Superman , Chris Reeves was too skinny for the roll at first, but he build up for the role, Dean Cain didn’t have the blue eyes color fans will expect in Superman, Tom Welling looks good but he doesn’t feel like Superman, he doesn’t even like the suit, and Brandon Routh even with facial expressions like the ones from Reeves looks too childish(and they were not casting for Reeve, they were casting for Superman), Henry Cavill looks good for the role, I am sure he will have the muscular size, and regarding the height well… that is his downer, but with good camera angles and boots I am sure you will not notice that on the screen.
I think that for the Reeve fans it’s time to let go, we are not looking for a guy that looks like him, we are looking for a new modern version of Superman(in my opinion like the one on the DC universe online game)And for the Welling fans it’s really hard to portray him on a serious darker and hopefully more violent movie after the TV show which is a totally different way of looking at Superman.
brad said on 9/Aug/11
Okay I am the exact same height as him and no one has ever called me short haha. Sometimes I feel awkward when around smaller people. He is plenty tall enough to play the role. You can be sure they will boost him up using lifts and camera tricks. They have begun to release pics and he looks jacked. I am pleased with the pick for Superman. I am ready for the movie bring it on.
Dan said on 8/Aug/11
isn't Dean Cain 6foot? so he is shorter than Cavill? right?, so what is the problem?, Dean Cain played superman well, and no one is complaining about his height, and Cavill looks fine to me as well, so why is everyone having a cry? don't like it? don't watch the new movie.
WColbert said on 5/Aug/11
People are so full of **** when it comes to height- particularly guys. If Cavill IS truly 6'1" or even over 6 foot at all, I'd wager he's taller than most of the clods claiming he's too short- tall enough to look over the 5'10" head of the average American man. Any time a guy tells you his height, you can sure as crap in most cases subtract an inch or so to get his real height. Almost every single guy I meet exaggerates his height. How do I know? Because I know how tall I am (and yes, I have been known to go up by half an inch and say I'm 6'2" when I'm 6'1.5"- medically measured, many times, I know for a fact exactly where I stand and self measuring is nearly impossible to get right by yourself)- every time a guy tells me he's 6'2", sure enough, the fugger is shorter than I am by at least half an inch or so. I've had guys exactly my height tell me, to my face, with a straight face, that they were 6'3". Guys who I was at least 4" taller than claim to be 6 feet tall. So yeah. Most guys are full of absolute crap. At least my license only exaggerates by a quarter of an inch or so when I really stretch lol
I actually am over 6 foot- over 6'1" (and I am the rare case that is not adding half an inch or an inch or even two- I told you I've done that, this is the honest truth)- and the average man I pass, I can see the top of his head standing on level ground with him. I need only wear my hiking boots to reach 6'3"...so if I can, Cavill, if he's 6'1", certainly can.
The REAL question is...can he act the part? Will his accent slip out? Does he have the right voice? HEIGHT is one of the most easily fakes things in hollywood. How else do you explain 5'5" Tom Cruise coming off as 5'10" in so many of his movies? The guy is tiny...he's the size of most women...his taller female co-stars would usually tower over him, yet, he somehow comes off as being close to the height of half of his 5'9"ish co-stars. Ben Stiller, too - though lately he seems to have given up on trying to look taller.
I'm more worried about his hairline, to be honest. Looks to be a bit receding.
Jim said on 5/Aug/11
Looks to be a solid 6 footer, which isn't necessarily short, but maybe a tad bit for the Superman character. Nonetheless for Hollywood, 6 ft. is plenty on camera and I'm sure they can work the angles, just like they did with Chris Evans in Capt. America to make him seem bigger - which by the way, Cavill seems to have a much more muscular frame/build than Evans, and judging by the photo released yesterday, he can definitely fit the bill.
Mesay said on 4/Aug/11
That dude Michael is so stupid, who is short at 6 feet? I really think this movie will be the best superman movie ever made, at least this guy has a badass face and not a silly boy face as the guy from superman returns has, i think he will be even better than reeves!
Michael said on 4/Aug/11
Cavill is definitely a dwarf to portray Superman. Agreed Brandon Routh was the perfect cast although still falls short(the late Mr Reeves is the ultimate Superman with his build and frame). Smurfs on crack. Now that is real hilarious. Anyway Teo brought up a good point. Superman is 2.5" shorter than Wolverine played by Hugh Jackman. Why can't Hollywood find someone 6'3"-6'5" to play Superman. Cripes.
jettalon said on 3/Aug/11
Brandon Routhe was great. This director is a dork. Why doesnt anyone stay true to the comic books. Superman is 6'5 and SUPER meaning looking muscular...HUGE. Camera tricks? Ya right. He looks and feels 5'10 and scrawny. They should rename the movie BOY of Steel!!! This director is a joke. Tel
him to go make Smurfs on crack or something and leave Superman to the real directors.
Teo said on 6/Jul/11
It's funny that Wolverine, who is 5ft3, in movies is nearly 2 in taller than Cavill, while in theory Supes should be 1 foot taller than Wolvie!
For sure, I don't see Cavill as the perfect choice, but as long as Superman isn't shorter than Batman (and Cavill isn't shorter than Bale) I think there's no problem. Plus Cavill has the right jaw for the part and if he'll properly workout he will easily be 200 pounds or more, and I don't see how anyone can call it "not big enough"...
mee said on 5/Jul/11
I also think that with this height he is short for Superman.
Francis said on 4/Jul/11
Really doesn't look over 5'11 next to 5'9 Rhys Meyers. 5'10 is a bit of a stretch though...
PottervsVoldemort said on 3/Jun/11
Cavill should do fine as Superman. As long as we don't have Lex out to become ruler of Australia in some crazy land grab script. The point is it will come down to the script. I still wish they had kept Routh in that role.
As for Padalecki, I don't see him as Superman but watching him in Supernatural, I can't help but think that if I could go back in time, I would cast him as the young adult Anakin Skywalker in the Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith. If I didn't know better, I would think the people in charge of the Clone Wars cartoon series designed Anakin similar to Padalecki.
Richard said on 23/May/11
An interesting tidbit about Cavill with regards to Superman was that he was initially pursuing the Batman role in Batman Begins, but director Chris Nolan thought he was too young at the time, only 21 years of age. Thinking about it he is more Batman like than Superman. He comes across as very metrosexual, something Superman is not, this fits Batman/Bruce Wayne more. Looking at him he would be an excellent James Bond.
I also agree with Frankie that Cavizel would be the best Superman out there. However since he portrayed Jesus, it would make the religious undertones of Superman too obvious.
Frankie said on 20/May/11
Cavill is a bit on the short and small build size to be Superman. Honestly Jim Cavizel is the best man out there to be Superman. I thought Routh was the best imitation of Reeve. Why they fired him is beyond me. I doubt this reboot will be very good, even with Nolan producing it.

Tsog: respectfully speaking, You wouldn´t beleive if I told you all the actors whose voices you and me have never, ever, listened to in any of their films (I mean, the´ve been replaced/exchanged by another "stunt/voice"). What I do mean, "voice" is not a problem today in Hollywood.
Anon said on 15/May/11
So true!! I love it!!
tsog said on 14/May/11
i think his voice isnt really on tone as superman and i do think the short height is a disadvantage, thats why i hoped they pick joe manganiello because Christopher reeve was 6'4 while manganiello was 6'5 and is on his prime BUILD. they could've just used graphics for supermans blue eyes just like what they did i passion of the christ to change the iris colors. if anything i hope they choose manganiello for superman if they make a justice league movie :)
klem said on 12/May/11
George is right.
He is almost 6-1 that enough to PLAY Superman. Some of you are acting like is is becoming one for real. 6-1 looks tall on camera and there is easy to look 2 inches taller on camera.
TheVerve180 said on 11/May/11
wtf 6ft is plenty tall...some of you claiming 6ft guy might be only 5ft10 max.
Simon Templar said on 29/Apr/11
Kraven: with all respect, I don´t quite agree with you saying "..he does´t have the correct height..". Let´s remember Henry´s 6´0.5"; I mean he´s not 5´9" tall.
Let´s state he´s already a tall human being, so it´s just a matter of 1.5 or 2 inches, and he could even balance it with very short lifts. What´s more, whithout lifts, wearing the usual Supermans´s boots (perhaps 1.5"), maybe whith 1 additional half an inch, he´d be O.K.. I do not think height is really a problem here: if so, what would be the height difference between Michael Keaton and the cartoon character that he interpreted 20 years ago, ie Batman (not less than 4 / 5 inches difference,....not even using stilts ..¡¡!!). What would then be the difference between the stature of Daniel Craig with the idea of the character, as Ian Fleming's James Bond? (3 inches or so apart, and not in favor of Craig !!!)
George said on 22/Apr/11
None of you have a clue!!!
First of he is going to have a slight lift in the shoe making him 186 and 188 in shoes. Secondly....christian bale is 6ft batman is 6ft2 chris evans is 6ft captain america is 6ft2 chris hemsworth is 6ft3 thor is 6ft6 robert downey jnr is 5ft8 tony stark is 6ft1 toby maguire is 5ft7 3/4 spiderman is 5ft10. Are you starting to see a pattern here trolls? The thing is....most of the posters here are probably nerds that havnt lifted a single weight in their life and dont have a clue how superman is supposed to look in real life...first of its a comic!! they dont look like that in real life proportions! secondly Henry cavill is more than big enough to fill the shoes of superman he has a big build most likely bigger than all of geeky trolls posting on this page secondly he is going to get much bigger for the role. Christian Bale went from the machinist to batman begins in a year....did any of you geeks see batman begins? he was huge! and henry cavill is bigger in his state now and has the same amount of time as bale to bulk up so he will easily look ''big enough''. The thing is on screen he will look large and imposing with lifts camera angles etc....its never been a problem for other actors Val Kilmer is 6ft and batman is 6ft2 yet he pulled of looking tall in Batman Forever and Henry Cavill is at least the same height but he is going to be quite a bit bigger in the muscle department. I hope you all find a girlfriend and live happy normal lives....i honestly do....
said on 18/Apr/11
Agree that Padalecki is a poor choice for Supes, he just doesn't look like him. I do think Padalecki would make a good Marvel Thor though, as facially he looks a lot like George Perez's Thor. Just another 20 lbs of muscle, a wig and some contacts and I think he'd make a better Thor than Hemsworth.
I'm not convinced Cavill is a good Supes, even though he does look very "Superman-ish" facially. He is several inches on the short side, his build is a bit on the small side, and I've seen nothing to suggest he can pull off a mid-western American. Maybe he can, but I have little hope for a Zack Snyder-directed Superman-film. Everything I've seen from him just seems all wrong for a Supes movie. Hopefully I'll be forced to eat my words, but only time will tell.
As for Cavill, he looks roughly 6'0", I do think 184 cm is generous. He only looks tall on the Tudors next to Rhys-Meyers. He never looked tall next to Callum Blue who himself looked fairly small on-screen in Smallville.
For example: Click Here
jed said on 17/Apr/11
I love how so many people talk about superman's build. He's supposed to be a big guy, but in the comics he's drawn far larger than he realistically would be at that height and weight - not to mention the real superman's proportions are even worse than barbies.
Kraven said on 16/Apr/11
Henry Cavill is just to short and skinny to play Superman, and Jared Padalecki is just as horrible casting suggestion for Superman as Cavill is, since Jared Padalecki doesn't even resemble Superman in the slightest, and he also isn't muscular or wide enough to play Superman, he is only tall enough.
Kraven said on 16/Apr/11
Henry Cavill is way to short to play Superman, even Brandon Routh was on the short side for playing superman at 189 cm tall. Superman is 191 cm tall, therefore the actor that portrays him should at least be 191 cm tall, and have a muscular wide build. Henry Cavill just doesn't have the correct height or muscular physique to fill the part of Superman. His face does somewhat resemble Superman's, but not much.
MsKitty said on 12/Apr/11
@Michael, I am far from a "die-hard" fan of Henry Cavill, only having seen him in a couple of projects. I am, however a "die-hard" fan of Superman, mostly based in comics. Therefore, I look at Cavill and am not disappointed...it is absolutely not some sort of sacreligious statement to say that perhaps he will dethrone Chris Reeve as "perfect Superman". How can we say it's impossible? It is entirely possible. It's the die-hard Reeve and Smallville fans who are up in arms about this whole thing. I am giving the actor, director, and the entire project the benefit of the doubt. I think it has great potential. What everyone's big problem is with Henry Cavill is beyond me. Get over it, I say.
And Jared Paledecki?? Seriously?? That's maybe one of the worst suggestions I have heard thus far...As for Cavill being labeled a "small guy" and "diminuitive"...do i sense a case of little man syndrome?? Get a life!
Candyman said on 10/Apr/11
Padalecki, while much taller than Cavill, imho is too boyish in his facial features and doesnt quite project the poise to pull off superman as well as I believe Cavill can. But that's just me. Above 6 feet is tall enough to be Superman.
Joe said on 6/Apr/11
Cavill is probably a 6 footer, I think he is too London pretty boy to portray a clean cut Midwestern guy which is Superman. This will not come out right. The only actor who did Superman right was Christopher Reeve. I remember when they wanted to recast Superman I knew it would never work. Reeve IS Superman, always has and always will. Even in SR, they paid homage to Reeve.
MD said on 29/Mar/11
I don't get this "too short" BS for most superheroes. So long as you're six feet or more, you can work with that on camera. To me, more than height, weight and build can be a major issue with casting. It's pretty easy to manipulate height on-screen; it's much more difficult to manipulate weight and build.
supes78 said on 28/Mar/11
George Reeves was fine for 50 years ago. Times have changed and the ideal Superman candidate should reflect the physical attributes that we expect from heroes of today. Although I'm sure Cavill is a great actor, he's way too short for Superman. But then again, I think the days of casting the "perfect" Superman might have ended with Chris Reeve.
Alka Seltzer said on 27/Mar/11
George Reeves is around the same height. I don't see anyone saying he was a horrible Superman.
Lyla said on 25/Mar/11
He's totally amazing :)
The new Superman, I think that it's a good choice btw
Michael said on 20/Mar/11
Yep, Jared Padelecki would be a solid choice, much better than the diminutive Cavill. MsKitty is certainly a die-hard fan of Henry Cavill despite the lack of stature to portray Superman. Well, everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. It's just sad to see a small guy like Cavill donning the costume.
Quote from Mskitty :-
"He will definitely be better than Dean Cain and Brandon Routh. He may well give Christopher Reeve a run for the title of "Perfect Superman"..."
I don't know how you came up with that supposition but the way you stated it seems to suggest that as a fact. Amen..
MsKitty said on 17/Mar/11
In my opinion, Christopher Reeve was good for the role in the first two movies because of the writing and directing. It was not due to his acting skill or because of his height and build. Let us not forget that Superman 3 and 4 failed miserably even with Reeve aka "the PERFECT Superman"! Because of the crew helming this next reboot, Cavill has a good chance of being the best Superman to date. However, die-hard fans of the Reeve Supes, Tom Welling's Superman based character, and/or Brandon Routh's Superman will never be satisfied with this choice. As far as comic book fans are concerned, I feel the naysayers in this group are among those who at first completely dismissed Heath Ledger playing Joker in The Dark Knight, ignoring the fact that he had already proven to be a great actor prior to his being cast and that he used The Killing Joke as a basis for his portrayal. For the most part, those comic book fanboys were proven wrong and came to accept the Heath Ledger incarnation of the Clown Prince of Crime with open arms, as I feel they will once Cavill flies onto the screen.
He will definitely be better than Dean Cain and Brandon Routh. He may well give Christopher Reeve a run for the title of "Perfect Superman"...
I have to say that if 6ft 0.5in is his barefoot height, then it's safe to say that his height in most regular shoes is close to 6'2" and therefore, making him appear an inch taller than that will not be much of a problem. As I said before, he can bulk up enough to look large and imposing, so I am not the least bit worried.
As for Mr. Rob's comment on Taylor Lautner one day becoming Superman...let's hope we never have to live through that one! D: lol
The real concern we should all have, as was stated before, without a doubt, is who will they get to play our beloved Lois Lane?! Hopefully, it's better than Nolan's choice to play Catwoman, although as a fangirl of Selina Kyle, I'm warming to that idea....
Whit said on 17/Mar/11
@Rob - Sort of funny that each new Superman is shorter than the last when each new generation is getting taller. I vote they cast Jared Padalecki, dye his hair darker, and maybe give him blue contacts. Or, heck, they could just stick with Tom Welling and upgrade him to the big screen.
said on 16/Mar/11
We'll have to agree to disagree. With some decent lifts I think he'll look imposing enough. Let's not write him off until we see a trailer at least.
[Editor Rob: instead of Superman getting taller, you have Welling/Routh shorter than Reeve and now Henry a couple of inches shorter than those 2.
By 2020 they'll probably be casting Taylor Lautner as the man of steel.]
orangy said on 14/Mar/11
Are you stuttering Michael, or do you really hope repetition will give your whining credibility. Admit it, you're actually Brandon Routh aren't you? Cavill's clearly a tall guy. Just watch the Tudors, he's consistently one of the tallest in any given scene. At least 6 feet if not quite 6'1
Michael said on 13/Mar/11
Henry Cavill doesn't have the looks and the height to portray Superman well enough. I sense a disaster coming.
MsKitty said on 11/Mar/11
I couldn't agree with you more, Launchdoctor! It isn't that I think Henry Cavill is the best choice or the perfect Superman, but I think he is a good choice, and though he obviously is lacking height, I think he looks the part...he doesn't look like Christopher Reeve, he looks like Supes. So I am remaining optimistic and taking the wait-and-see stance on this one. As for Lois Lane, let's hope they learned from the last horrible casting choice. Who do you think would be a good pick? Funny how this thread turned into a Superman forum...lol
Launchdoctor said on 10/Mar/11
To respect the true legacy, you must return at least in part, to the original comic books before any movie. Kryptonian males were all intelligent, tall and physically fit. Brandon Roth was a great Christopher Reeve, not really a great Superman. Good but not great. At one point in 2010 the rumors were Jon Hamm for the part. I thought that choice the best so far. Why? Jon looks most like the original comic book character and he doesn't have boyish looks. But the part has been cast and the contracts signed. Henry Cavill is an actor and he may end up doing a fine job, we'll just have to wait and see. The real casting story though will always be... Who plays Lois Lane?
gqtaste said on 7/Mar/11
Here's another charity group saying this guy is over 6'0. He's closer to 5'10 in reality.
Michael said on 6/Mar/11
Mskitty and SolidSnake,
Both of your points are well taken, especially Mskitty's. Yes, the storyline plays a huge part in getting the movie back on track, and for this the director's contribution is extremely vital. Superman I and II by the late Christopher Reeve is the best of the best in Superman's history, and although II and III are dismal *in relative* to the earlier works, they are still considered as part of the Superman's saga due to Reeve's participation.
Now, height and looks are a different matter altogether. Although the director is one of the vital part to the equation, the actor needs to act(and look) the part as well. I don't what other think and this is my opinion. Tom Welling can't really act and his performance are pretty wooden although he looked tall and strong. Brandon Routh scores better in both looks and performance but the director screwed up in Superman Returns with a mediocre to below average storyline. Christopher Reeve is the ideal Superman and the tallest one out of the pack standing at 6'4" barefoot. With boots he probably stands at 6'6" or more. Cavill will probably be around 6'4" with lifters but his frame is small compared to the bigger guys. The superhero needs to have a big presence with a towering figure in order to portray Superman to a tee.
I am still waiting for a good director to bring back the Superman legacy to life. In my mind the Superman saga ended with Christopher Reeve's resignation from the franchise. Brandon Routh is the best candidate to fill in the shoes(very similar resemblance to Chris' features although an inch or two shorter) but unfortunately there isn't any good directors to make that happen, just yet.
MsKitty said on 4/Mar/11
I couldn't agree with you more, Jed! You seem like an individual who knows what he's on about! :D
jed said on 3/Mar/11
JonasBlane Routh is 6'2.5 if that. Lifts/Camera angles will be used to make Cavill look taller (if they even have to be used)
jed said on 3/Mar/11
He's 5cm shorter than Routh. If that. Come on. Nobody complains that Bale is 2 inches too short for Batman. Plus the way superman is drawn in the comics makes him look far bigger than 225lbs yet nobody points that out as a problem.
MsKitty said on 1/Mar/11
So what qualifies an actor to play Supes is his height? Something that can easily be faked? In the DC Universe, Superman's stats are as follows: 6'3, 225lbs., black hair, blue eyes...so that disqualifies Brandon Routh, since he has neither black hair, nor blue eyes, and the contats he wore looked completely obvious and fake...and given that theory, we could also say that Christopher Reeve was too tall and not nearly built enough. Regardless of how much Smallville fans bitch and moan, this movie is going to be fantastic and probably the best one since Superman 2...who knows, maybe better!
JonasBlane said on 1/Mar/11
Superman should be 6'3 - 6'4, Reeves was 6'4, Routh was 6'4, Welling is 6'3. He's not an average man, but a superhero, he's supposed to tower over people. And quite frankly 6ft0.5 just doesn't cut it regardless of what these people on his dick say.
MsKitty said on 27/Feb/11
@Michael "With Cavill on board the Superman franchise is going down the drain"
I'd say Superman IV the Quest for Peace with Christopher Reeve and Superman Returns with Brandon Routh already got a good head start on that one. And don't get me going on that whole Smallville thing! If anything, Cavill can in no way make it any worse, especially with Chris Nolan and Zack Snyder helming the project. And if it does tank, I'd be extremely surprised and even astonished if the reason is Cavill's lack of a couple inches. To me, that's a moot argument and a fanboys lament if I've ever heard one.
In my opinion, they can easily add inches to his height with lifts and camera angles and that'd be just fine with me. The real important thing is that the story is good as well as the acting, which I have to believe will be all that and more. This is exactly what is needed to breathe life back into this franchise. I for one am extremely excited and have no doubts that it will be great. Can't wait to see my superhero Crush back on the big screen again!
Aoknaa said on 27/Feb/11
Yes but this is Superman, he shouldn't look short next to other cast members and they already cast 6'1" Kevin Costner as his father
SolidSnake said on 26/Feb/11
@ michael give the guy a chance. Do you know how much hate there was for Daniel Craig being picked for Bond? He was blonde and the shortest actor to take the role yet Casino Royale was praised as being one of the best in the bond saga
Anonymous said on 24/Feb/11
For all those who believe that 6´1" is short for Superman, my answer is the following: "what´s really short is your minds, my dear Sirs". Superman is a very strong man, and tall also, but he´s not suposed to be a basketball player.
6´1" is a more than respectable tall height, which will have the addition of the boots (6´1" + boots: 6´2,5" aprox). Great height for this superhero. Taller than most men all around the world (he´s not suposed to be a Giant, Hulk or King Kong).
Sam said on 22/Feb/11
The recent article in Entertainment Weekly about the casting of Superman refers to Cavill as 6'1"
Kyle said on 21/Feb/11
I think his height is about right in terms of the upcoming comic movies really. Thor should be the tallest, which Hemsworth is. Captain America and Batman are around the same size, but a little shorter than Superman, which Bale and Evans are compared to Cavill.
jed said on 20/Feb/11
superman's supposed to be 6'3, I wouldn't say 5/6 cm is 'too short' for a film. I mean Brandon Routh is 6'2ish and looked fine.
gregarious ginger said on 18/Feb/11
He looks taller on The Tudors because of his shoes.This sounds like the right height.
eddie45 said on 18/Feb/11
Cavill is easily 6ft1! As i've met him in london and I'm exactly 6ft1 too. Gotta say he's a really charming fella. Hope him all the best in the new Superman film. I think he's gonna nail it as hes got the look's and acting ability to pull off the iconic role.
kcirej said on 18/Feb/11

Doesn't look fully 6ft1, therefore 6ft0.5/184cm is spot on for him.

This guy has a future: he combines good looks with great acting. He claims 6'1" but Rob's estimate at 6'0.5" or even 6' flat is more likely.
