On the Good Doctor Harper looks around 5’8” next to 5’7 1/2” or 3/4” Daniel Dae Kim. It looked like Harper edged him out, but not by a significant amount. At some times he can look 5’7” next to 5’9” or 5’10” Freddie Highmore too.

I don't get it why Harper can look close to 5'9 with 5'11 1/2 Christopher Gorham when there isn't camera angle issues for his advantage here Click Here

It would be great to see him pictured with Tom Cruise!

After watching every episode of Limitless, I believe he is definitely not under 5'7...

I saw him at a convention in DC . He had on 2 inch cowboy boots. 5'7" is about right. No taller though

I met Hill today, and he said he was about 5'8". I didn't get to stand beside him, but he's definitely not under 5'7". He said something along the lines of "The internet says I'm 5'7", but I'm closer to 5'8"! Seemed right to me.

I met Hill and he is 5'6" or so. He is very petite and looks much larger on TV/Screen.

when he was arrested on csi ny and was framed mac said harper's height was 5'9'' and that seems right. maybe 5'8'' at least

I'm watching an episode of CSI NY. They just took hilarious mugshot of Hill Harper. He was way over the 5ft6. Close to 5ft11 LOL. BTW again Carmine Giovinazzo looks more than an inch shorter than Gary Sinise.

So, Mr. R who was he with at that cafe? Inquiring minds and bloggers wanna know.--lol lol lol

5'7" looks about right taking into account the lean with 5'8" Usher, here:Click Here

I stand by my eyewitness sighting of 5-6.

I took pictures with him, I am 5 7 1/2 he is taller than me I had on a small 1 inch so he is about 5 9
George said on 11/Feb/08
yeah, he looks about 5'7" in 'The Breed'
Johnny said on 26/Dec/07
in one episode of CSI (the one when he got arrested because he was suspected of a crime) you can see a picture of him, like police always does with criminals, and he was like 5'10''. He must wear lifts, because you don't get 3'' with normal shoes!
puddin said on 6/Sep/07
on the show he wears platforms. that is why he looks taller
Lmeister said on 22/Feb/07
Could U list Carmine Giovinazzo from CSI New York. He look shorter than Gary Sinise and taller than Hill Harper. He is usually listed 5'9'', but I think 5'8'' would be more accurate...

Hill is 5'7" on some bios...5'9' on others...for certain he is quite a talented little man!
Serene said on 7/Jun/06
REally?? Looks more like 5 feet 8.. hm.. at times 5 feet 6.. hmm..
Better leave him as 5 feet 7

Mr. R, you seem to run into him a lot. I'd like to have a sighting of Hill myself. Please tell me how.
Mr. R said on 5/Jan/06
I saw Hill Harper Monday night in Hollywood. He is still 5'6".
Mr. R said on 4/Sep/05
Saw Hill on Friday at my local cafe'. He is still 5-6.
J. said on 24/Mar/05
Wow, looking at some more photos, he really is pretty short! I'm going to have to agree with the 5'6". There's a good pic of him standing next to Ciara (5 foot 7 and a half), who is wearing flat shoes and he's SHORTER than her. It's amazing how they can make a small man like him look average height onscreen.
Mr. R said on 24/Mar/05
J, you are right. I've been following Hill's career for years, from his stint on City of Angels (my first tv show) to a great film called The Visit, to his current stuff. I always thought he was about 5'10". But last night confirmed his membership in the 5'6" club. I think that's why he got the job in City of Angels, cause Blair Underwood is only about 5'9".
