Requesting a page for busy character actor Gbenga Akinnagbe, who played Hector’s enforcer back in The Wire and is currently on The Old Man.

I think he looks near average height but a bit under, sometimes near 5’9”, maybe more likely 5’8.5”. Sometimes seems taller but I think big guys like Crews show him to be a bit under average.

6'0.5 is overall a good shout I think, although I can see how he can even pull off nearer 6'1 at times, yeah. If you see him on Bosch, he generally seems a guy who has a quite good posture, so I'm sure that helps as well (along with good proportions).
At least he and Titus are now listed at much more believable difference (compared to the mere IMPOSSIBLE inch of a few years ago)!

@Andrea: Looks like Jamie and Common both could stand better in that shot, Carmelo looks to be standing tall and is even raising his eyelevel a bit. I wouldn't think Jamie was much less than 184 cm range, I'm leaning towards 184.5-185 at the moment.

Actually in the new season there's one scene with Richard Brooks where you could argue he struggles to look even 6', but I'm not sure the ground is completely even...
Generally, he does look a comfortable 6', at least. 6'0.5 isn't a bad shout, but I wouldn't go much over that.
See him with Carmelo Anthony: Click Here

Carmelo makes them both look barely 6ft, Common under 6ft there.

Good update to his page! Having a better look at him just now I think around 185 cm actually is a pretty fair shout. He arguably pulls it off with Greenberg, Welliver and LL Cool J, and here as well standing next to Clive Owen: Click Here, check out the 04:18 mark and from 04:35. That's not a very big difference.
BT said on 30/Apr/20
@Rob: Something is off here. Maybe Greenberg is more 181 cm range, and Hector could be 6'0.5? At times he does pull off looking closer to 6'1 than 6'0.

He can sometimes seem nearer 6ft 1.
Andrea said on 23/Apr/18
Rob, can you give him a photo?
I've just watched the last season of Bosch, and although he's far away from his 6'2 claim, he may well be a bit over 6'. Maybe give him 6'0.25? He generally does look a big 6 footer (and well over 1.5 inches taller than Titus)...
Editor Rob
It's not unreasonable to say he can look a strong 6ft range.
Sam said on 29/Nov/17
He looks a good 2 inches under Lance Reddick, so he may be closer to his listing than I initially thought.

I think as much as 6'0.5" could be a feasible for him, he seems taller than other six foot actors listed on here.

A little over 6ft for this guy
gian92 said on 5/Aug/16
Rob i believed he was more near 6'1 .
Andrea said on 5/Jul/15
He does look a genuine 6', a fraction over it i guess it is not impossible, though! He looks taller than Clive Owen, if you G him! But that's another story, it must be the famous Clive's posture :)

I think Hector can be a strong six footer (184-185 cm. like Duchovny) while Owen is a weak 6'2 (186-187)

He does look at least 6' in The Wire. Rob, the funny thing is that you have this guy at 6' and Clive Owen at 6'2. Just look at their pics, Hector can look taller than him in many pics! Just forget about 6'2 for Owen! That's ridicolous

What happened to David Draiman page (singer of Disturbed)? Did record company contact you?
Glenn said on 12/Sep/06
Wrong Matt.Ive hung out with both many times over a 16 year period.Udo is near 5-5,or no shorter than 5-4.Dio is 5-2 tops.possibly even 5ft.Rick Emmet is 5-8.Derringer is 5-4 Steve.I think Sully is 5-6 to 5-8.cant remember him.THE SHOCK is the singer from disturbed I finally ran into last week.5-4!!!
Matt said on 12/Sep/06
Ronnie is about 5'4. Udo I've heard is about 4'10! Udo looks far shorter than anyone I've seen in metal.
Steven said on 31/Aug/06
Sully Erner from Godsmak is about 5'4" or something. Believe Rik Emmett and Rick Dehringer and Craig Chaquico may be around this territorie as well from tha looks a things.
Glenn said on 30/Aug/06
Maynard is about 5-4 I think.I didnt realise Godsmack had someone that short.
Road Hawg said on 28/Aug/06
Ayreon, not sure but I think the guy in Godsmack is down there in that range, as may be the guy from Tool (saw him on Conan O'Brien once and he looked a foot-plus shorter.
Glenn said on 20/May/06
5-3 the illussion of 5-1.
Glenn said on 18/May/06
A guy? not that I can think of.unless you mean DIO or UDO of ACCEPT.UDO is 5-4.DIO claims around the same,but is 5-1.

Glenn said on 11/Apr/06

Yeah, quite diminutive, but a hell of a guitarist.
