This guy had us all spellbound in 'Happy Valley' with his brilliant psychopathic performance! Now I'm delighted to see that James has made his way to Hollywood! Although I've only just started the film, I couldn't help but notice his familiar face, and in an infinitely nicer part than he played in 'Happy Valley'! In fact, he is a young student doctor starring in a remake of
'Flatliners', with tiny actress Ellen Page and even Keifer Sutherland appears appropriately*, as a senior doctor figure! The film looks good so far....

James gets 6ft1 from me!

* Keifer starred in the first film!

I see no reason to change his current listing. I've never seen him look under 6ft0.75 and never seen him look over 6ft1.25, hard to think of many more men actually who look bang on their listing like Norton, usually there's a case to be argued for either a slight downgrade or upgrade for most.

Rob, is 6ft1½ arguable for this guy?
Editor Rob
I can't see it for him.

He fits the stereotype for bond but I think Hardy would be the better choice!

You could make a case for 186cm but I'm not having him over that, he doesn't look a 6ft2 guy.

Definitely taller than 6ft 1 especially on mcmafia next to an actress that is 180cm and she was wearing 2 inch heels.

Don't really understand the guesses of near 6ft 2 for him he looks around the 6ft1 mark he's listed as. He looks bang on 6ft1 next to people like Andrew Scott and Jamie Cambell Bowers.

Rob just out of curiosity would you say Greg Rutherford would be an inch taller than James Norton it's just always bugged me I think they were on a Talk show together, and I thought they looked the same height I was watching something on my nans computer and didn't see the title but James always gives the impression of being a near 6"2 rather than a strong 6"1 so either Greg needs a downgrade to just 6"2 flat or James needs an upgrade but they looked height twins when they were introduced to the audience by the host!

He looks a bit over this at the very least.

He does look more like 186/187cm but everywhere seems to list him as 185cm, even google says 185 and it's rare they list anyone lower than they really are so I'd say he must just be a very solid 185cm

I'd go with 6'2" for James. I like him in Grantchester where he towers Robson Green by , I'd say , six inches.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/17
Rob, is 6ft2 possible for this guy?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/17
Rob, could he be over this?

I seem to have missed out big time by not seeing 'Grantchester', but James was riveting in 'Happy Valley', though he didn't have terribly much interaction with the public, so I was unaware that he was quite so tall! Silly me! I know how tall 'Happy Valley' star Sarah Lancashire is, so the clues were there. I want to see both series again very soon. This time I'll certainly take note. I want to see if there's a possibility of James making the 6ft2 mark as has been suggested in the comments I've just read. That was SUCH an excellent thriller and Sarah Lancashire stood up to James' evil character with brute force! I will appreciate it even more now that I know he's 6ft1 - at least!

Has to be over 6'1" - Robson Green is 5'9" (per CH itself!) and Norton in Granchester towers over him by at least 6" on him which would put Norton at 6'2".

He absolutely towered over Paul Dano in War and Peace. Since Paul is listed as being 6 foot and a half inch, i dont see how it's possibly James is listed correctly. He had at least 2 inches on Paul, who is a tall guy anyway and dwarfs most of the other characters. I think you have listed James's height incorrectly
Editor Rob: I only watched one scene as Jenny watched this and I didn't think there was much between them based on Dano at times not having as great posture.
