I had a person in human resources tell me after this thing played out that 'some people' were afraid of me around the studio. I asked her why, because I'm a 6-foot-1, black man with dark skin and who doesn't go around saying 'Yessah, massa sir' and 'No sir, massa' to everyone? It's nuts when your presence alone can just scare people, and that made me a prime candidate to take the heat in a dysfunctional family.

His Quote " I'm a 6'1", Black man" .........We could not tell about the second part of your Quote. Thanks for clarifying that for us. Most of us thought you were Anglo Saxon or Swedish.
Editor Rob
it makes more sense in the whole quote, which I put below the photo now.

Many Happy Returns to Isaiah Washington, who celebrates his 57th Birthday today. Doesn't he look many years younger? 🀭

A perfect example of clean 6'1"...

Eric Dane looks 1/4 on Isaiah.
Alex65 said on 2/Jan/19
Doesn't seems as tall as 6'1 in the 100 and also in real life, for me. I think u can downgrade him to 6'0.75 (184.8 cm). Moreover he's 55 year old so he has shrunk a little bit.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jul/18
Looks a weaker 6'1 in Grey's Anatomy.
Leno said on 22/Apr/18
Him and Eric Dane, are the perfect exemples of a solid 6'1 man.

Rob, what are the chances of you meeting this guy?
Editor Rob
very slim.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/16
Rob, where would you put this guy?

A) 188cm/186cm
B) 187.5cm/185.5cm
C) 187cm/185cm
D) 186.5cm/184.5cm
E) 186cm/184cm
Editor Rob
B-C range maybe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Feb/16
He'd have been perfect to play OJ. Same height and build. Much better suited to the role than Cuba Gooding Jr.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/14
185-186cm is fair
dmeyer said on 3/Feb/14
I meant full 6'1
dmeyer said on 2/Feb/14
I met him a lot full is right
Dmeyer said on 19/Feb/13
In person looked nearer 6'1 than 6'0.75
Dmeyer said on 16/Dec/12
Did look a big 185cm Guy 6'1 seems fine
J.J. said on 30/Jul/11
Rob I'd say he looks around 6'0" to 6'0.5" 185cm is just a bit too much
Dmeyer said on 28/Jun/11
Rob hΓ© looks full 6 ft 1 in person is that possible i thaught hΓ© was 5 cm taller than me near 186.5 for thΓ© Guy i got fooled 0.5 in but nΓ­Β΄ more si 185.5 for this Guy
Editor Rob
it could be fair to go with that mark since he had claimed it and doesn't look much off it.
Dmeyer said on 10/Jun/11
At 5 ft 11.25 to 11.5 hΓ© seemed near 2 in on me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/11
Looks an honest 6ft1, Rob?
5'7.56 said on 22/Jan/11
6' is closer to the truth, 6'2 Tom Arnold is clearly taller because, unlike Isaiah, he isn't dwarfed by 6'4 Steven Segal and 6'4.5 Bill Duke.
john said on 16/Nov/10

Hugh said on 24/Jan/09
Definately a legit 6ft1.
Hugh said on 11/Oct/08
He towers over Patrick Dempsey.
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/08
Isaiah is a full 6-1.
Hugh said on 11/Apr/08
Looks 6ft1-6ft2 at times.
dmeyer said on 5/Mar/08
in person when standing tall a solid 185 men
dmeyer said on 14/Jan/08
i thaught 6 ft for him too but in person he looks solid 6'1
Ivan 6'2.25 said on 13/Jan/08
6'0.5 or 1.84 i would say
dmeyer said on 8/Jan/08
i apologise to mr r i was a lidl harsh ,with isiah he did judge height very well ,but with guys like dmx,john voight and more he is way off ,maybe posture od
dmeyer said on 9/Dec/07
to me he looks a full 6'1 whi are you so convinced that he is 6'0.75 ,he could very well be that ,
dmeyer said on 1/Oct/07
mr r is defenetly a good height judger i spent a few hours working several times with isaiah is isnt under 185 cm and likely a full 6'1 very similar height with eric dane who claims 6'0.75 in and looks it i defenetly dont look the 6'1 they think i am near isiah
Eric said on 13/Sep/07
Rob, honestly if he says 6'1 and pretty much looks it, then why give him 6 and 3/4, I mean that's just petty are you angry at him for the greys anatomy thing or what?

Editor Rob
there's as many 6ft 3/4 inch guys in the world than 6ft 1, maybe I'm just calling him weak 6ft 1. Nought to do with grey's, I never watched more than a couple episodes of the show.

and we get it - Viper annoys you, just keep theone name.
dmeyer said on 9/Jul/07
185 cm fits him good
Anonymous said on 29/Jun/07
In a recent People Weekly article, Washington describes himself as " 6'1" black man". Click Here
Viper said on 16/Jun/07
He looks at least 6-1 to me.
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/07
at 9 pm i was 5'11 so if i dont stand all day wish i usualy dont i am 5'11 before bed
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/07
i agree rob and thank for considering our opinion you are a good person
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/07
in movies he seems average but when i saw him he flirts with 6'1 and defenetly over 6'1 in the morning
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/07
thank you rob he might no be 186 but he is 185 cm 6'0.75 thank you mr are i met him several times he wears the same 1 in low cut dress shoes i was 183 cm in shoes he is 6'1.75 to 6'2 in shoes so 6'0.75 barefett and likely 6'1 i will try to see hin again but the guy is tall noticably over 6 ft

Editor Rob
if both you and mr r had seen the guy nearer 6ft 1...then it is worth looking at again because you are legit 5ft 11 and r is nearly 6ft, so good height to judge.
Mr. R said on 14/Jun/07
I have seen him several times. He is 6-1.
dmeyer said on 12/Jun/07
i will settle for 6'0.75 in 184.785 cm he wears in in dress shoes it will be nice if yoy list him 185 cm i talked with the guy several times so i know better
dmeyer said on 12/Jun/07
he realy loooks 6'1 in person or aleast 6'0.75 185 cm is 185 possiblt he realy looks about 2 in on me i know the guy wath do you think rob

Editor Rob
6ft 3/4 is quite possible. Against the others in pics yes it is arguable he is around 185.
J. said on 21/May/07
In the Clint Eastwood film, "True Crime", Isaiah stands in front of a height chart for a brief moment, he comes in right around 6'1".
dmeyer said on 16/Mar/07
i worked again with him and when he stands tall 185 is possible
dmeyer said on 18/Feb/07
this guy was taller than i thaught very close to 185 cm
dmeyer said on 9/Feb/07
looked 184 strong very close to his claim he stood by me for 2 hours he looked about 1.5 inches taller but not quiet 2 inches
dmeyer said on 7/Feb/07
rob i worked with isaiah all day and he is strong 184 cm possibly brushing 185 cm defenetly 6'1 or over in the morning like 186 but at his shortest 184 strong is bang you are good rob he is 6'0.5 in with good posture could have been 185 but the diferance between us was 1.5 in not 2 inches so 184 strong for he looked exactly that height maybe 6'0.75 but 6'0.5 for sure and no lifts i talked to i set with him he had 1 in dress low cut shoes very close to his 6'1 claims
Viper652 said on 7/Jun/06
Yeah, why did you downgrade him Rob?

Editor Rob
to keep folk on their toes!
J. said on 6/Jun/06
Why is he downgraded? He usually does look 6'1" range.
dmeyer said on 19/Mar/06
6'1" is possible but he dosnt seem tall
Viper652 said on 4/Jan/06
Isaiah looked all of 6-1 in Wild things 2. One of the very few legit 6-1 listed guys in holywood.
Smoke said on 31/Mar/05
He definately looks 6'1" everywhere you see him, but he's looking rather small next to Segal in that shot! My fault for picking an unflattering shot for Isaiah.
