In the Frederick Post, 2001, he commented on his tall stature, saying "Just put 6 feet 6...It's a little more than that, but 6 feet 7 inches sounds terrible."
In 'The Age', Cromwell refers to an audition he had for the movie 10 - opposite Dudley Moore - mentioning that he "was embarrassed by the director, Blake Edwards, who looked at me and said, 'what am I supposed to do with THAT?'. I was a little hurt to be referred to as an inanimate object at an audition. I was told by my agent that a number of big stars won't work with anyone two inches (five centimeters) taller than them and most of them are under six feet, so you have to be prepared to have trouble."
I’m 6-feet-6, this tall, lanky, goofy guy. When I started, I used to joke that a character actor is the guy who never gets the girl.
