How tall is Jason Isaacs

Jason Isaacs Height

5ft 10 ¾ (179.7 cm)

English actor, best known for films like The Patriot, Harry Potter, Armageddon, Event Horizon, Blackhawk Down and Soldier. On TV he appeared in Star Trek: Discovery, Brotherhood and Awake. On his Spotlight resume he was listed: "Height: 5'11" (180cm), Weight: 12st. (76kg)". In this 2018 convention photo I had near 1/4 inch more sneaker than him.

@Nik they look equal at most I see 1/4th of an inch on Josh but we aren’t sure about footwear and hairstyles looks like it’s decieveing
Nik said on 11/Aug/19
He looks 5'10.75" when compared to big Josh!
Connor Simpson said on 11/Aug/19
He looks 5'10.5 with Rob and Big Josh.
Greg said on 11/Aug/19
@Christian Well let’s see in theory Rob has Misha Collins at 5’11 but his average is more 5’10.5 and that seem like something he would measure. I don’t think jason would be a flat 5’10, he’s certainty over the mark but just by how much. I’m more inclined to believe that Jason is 5’10.5-5’10.75. 5’10.5 is a possibility seeing he’s claimed both 5’10 and 5’11. In the Photo with Josh they look identical maybe Jason Edges him slightly by like 1/4th of an inch, the hair throws me off because upon first glance it looks Josh has the edge despite having a smaller head than Isaacs. I’m not sure on the footwear I know he said Josh had .6 inch sneakers but idk about Jason.
Greg said on 11/Aug/19
@Rob oh I see they look exactly the same height. Thanks
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Aug/19
@Greg
If Rob thought that he looked 5'10.75", he wouldn't have written in the Youtube comments that he could have looked 5'10"-5'10.5". Either way, 5'10.75" is a bit too high of a listing for him. Anyone with functioning eyes can see that.
Myself said on 9/Aug/19
@Christian
We should also see how he looks in the photo with Josh, soon in theory
179cm guy said on 9/Aug/19
What's his inseam, Rob?
Editor Rob
I am not sure on that really.

you know I'll measure anybody's height if they visit my house, but I draw the line at certain things, like getting down on my knees like a tailor and measuring inseams.
Greg said on 9/Aug/19
Rob will you be uploading Josh’s photo with Jason?
Editor Rob
Yes refresh this page and it should be there, I am not sure what Jason is in at that event, I remember Josh had like 0.6 sneaker
Greg said on 9/Aug/19
@Christian Rob thinks he’s more in the 5’10.5-5’10.75” zone than 5’10.25-5’10.5” so unlikely. He isn’t standing all that well in the photo but I’ll give Rob the benefit of the doubt because he has met him in person.
Greg said on 8/Aug/19
Are there any photos of Josh with Jason Issacs? That would probably help narrow it down a bit more.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 7/Aug/19
@Rob
Are you gonna give him something like 5'10.25"? Because in your Youtube video, you wrote that he could look 5'10"-5'10.5" Click Here
Editor Rob
He could look that, but a fraction less sneaker means at worst I'd have thought he would be 5ft 10.5...but even then, I think he looked taller than the 5ft 10 guy Sam Vartholomeos who had like myself more footwear than jason.
Greg said on 6/Aug/19
@Avi what’s going on brother? It’s a half of inch round up which is fair game. Yeah I mean at worst 5’10.5-5’10.75” for Isaacs. As for Edgerton I think sometimes he can look 5’11, he holds up really well with 5’11.5 Benedict Cumberbatch, he generally looks near enough 5’11, he could also be 5’10.5 similar to Isaacs. Will smith claims to be 6’2 but probably falls a bit under. I know Rob mentioned that he thought Isaacs was Similar to Josh.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Aug/19
Rob, would you rule out 5'11 1/4 peak for Jason Issac? I believe you have seem Matt Damon look 1.5" shorter than Jason from a decades back in their work. Click Here Look at Jason standing loose on his knee and they're solid 3cm difference maybe tiny bit more.
Editor Rob
I'd say he was no less than a full inch taller than someone like Damon, whether he's actually lost anything noticeable (1/4 or 1/3rd) I am not so sure on yet.
avi said on 4/Aug/19
@Greg
Hey Greg!
Yes agreed.
I think he's right in the middle.

Kind of like me when I say 5'11.5 or 6'0.

I think Joel Edgerton looks sub 5'10 in a lot of pics with Will Smith who is a strong 6'1 guy. I think Isaacs would seem to be an inch taller than Edgerton.
Greg said on 4/Aug/19
@Avi I think Jason’s isaacs might be in a similar situation as myself or Brad Pitt. 5’10.5 so sometimes you’ll claim 5’10 other times 5’11, depending on what he feels like saying which would make sense why he said he’s 5’10 and lists himself as 5’11 too. Kind of like the case with Joel Edgerton and the tale of Will Smith’s battle to tell him 5’10.5 when he said 5’11 😂.
avi said on 30/Jul/19
@Editor Rob

Rob, I always thought he was a good 5'11 but after this he looks 5'10 in the picture. I know he may be giving up a half inch maybe touch more, but is it possible he was 5'10.5 and never a full 5'11?
Actually if you look at your picture it looks like a 1.5-1.75 inch difference.
Which puts him at 5'9.75 maybe. Plus your 1/4 inch advantage so 5'10.
Add he's dropping .5 inch maybe .75 he is definitely 5'10.5 range

Look at him next to Arnie Hammer who we know is around a strong 6'4.

Click Here

Looks about 5 inches maybe 5.5 shorter but no more.
Johan 185 cm said on 30/Jul/19
Doesn't look it in the pic but I wouldn't have guessed him less than 5'10.5" compared to other actors.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Jul/19
Weird how he only looks around 5'9.5" in the pic. There's no way that Rob would mistake a 5'9.5" guy for 5'10.75"
Greg said on 25/Jul/19
With the Lean he can appear 5’9.75 give the 1/4th footwear swing you’d have 5’10, I see what you mean by he’s tricky to estimate he could be anywhere from 5’10.25-5’11 I will probably shoot for 5’10.5”
World Citizen said on 25/Jul/19
Disadvantage I mean*
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jul/19
Peak 5'11 1/8th now 5'10 5/8th and this is more acceptable for Jason. Anyway Matt Damon has never being over 5'9 1/2 a low.
Jordan87 said on 25/Jul/19
Even After Adjusting for Footwear he doesn't look over 5'10 here at all.
Nik said on 24/Jul/19
@ Rob - Is Jason dropping more height than you?
Editor Rob
I think he could look a bit taller than this photo when talking to him, though I would be a bit surprised if he was only say 5ft 10-5ft 10.25 rather than at least 10.5-10.75
World Citizen said on 24/Jul/19
Looks 5 ft 10 at best without the footwear advantage.
MrFish said on 24/Jul/19
Rob, don’t you think you look taller next to Isaacs than Tom Felton does? But you have Felton listed taller than yourself. Based on this photo and the footwear, I’d guess 178-9.
Editor Rob
It's not impossible Tom is a bit less than 174. Generally he can look over 2 inches smaller than jason in photo ops.
TheBat said on 22/Jul/19
Probably 5'11" peak.
Easy E said on 22/Jul/19
Can we get a height comparison for this?
Editor Rob
I will try to do a short clip for him today.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jul/19
Rob, i'm surprise with this listing of downgrade after you have met him. But consider of his age 56 now he might be already the case of losing height. From the past he look 1.5" taller than Matt Damon and look more 181cm range with Tom Felton and the Phelps Twins a decade back. If you are given him 5'10.75" then Matt Damon is 5'9.25". I think the problem is Jason should have a peak and current height.

Click Here Jason dropping height on one knee standing and still look easily 3cm taller than Damon.
Andrea said on 22/Jul/19
To be honest, even considering his footwear disadvantage, he looks 5'9.5 MAX here, BUT he easily looks around this listing with Tom Felton, so I guess that he's either dropping more height than it seems... or a good inch got lost somewhere, again???
Editor Rob
Just from watching Jason in film and TV I'd have thought he was closer to 5ft 11 than 10.
But after seeing him a few times that day I wasn't so sure about that...in fact he's a trickier guy to estimate than I had thought.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jul/19
Nice new picture, Rob? I'm going have to check out all the films of his that I possess - and I can't imagine that they'll all be as nasty as 'A Cure For Wellness'! If I had the luxury of a TV and I could choose any of his films to watch right now, I'd plump for the excellent 'Event Horizon'. My boyfriend was desperate for a copy, and one Christmas, I travelled to Croydon to find one - that and 'Con Air'. They cost me £10 a piece! I've since added them to my own collection, at a far more competitive price. 😝

5ft10.75.
Nik Ashton said on 22/Jul/19
The average guess is 5’10.88” (30 votes!)!
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 4/Jul/19
He looks about 3 inch taller than his HP cast mates Tom Felton in some of Harry Potter promotional images in Goblet of Fire 2005 and Deathly Hallows 2010/2011 who isnt even solid 5ft 9 175 like I said last year... Tom Felton is in fact similar to my height.... So, 5ft 11 makes sense for this guy at least...
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Mar/19
About all I liked watching him in 'A Cure For Wellness' yesterday was his convincing Swedish/Germanic accent! Oh, his acting was fantastic as always, but the character he played was mega-mean in the extreme!

This excellent actor gets 5ft10.75.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Mar/19
I know the name, and I have seen Jason in 'Armageddon', 'Event Horizon' and more. Now I am going to watch him in the delightfully entitled 2017 film 'A Cure for Wellness', so I'll be able to decide for myself whether I think he's 5ft10 or 11!

The film, as the title might suggest, is 18-rated! Am I a glutton for punishment, or what?

See you later...
Jordan87 said on 1/Feb/19
Gracian,

Felton is leaning a lot more in the picture you posted, did you notice that?
Gracian said on 2/Sep/18
Jason really looks at least 3 inches taller than Tom Felton:

Besides, Evanna Lynch looks very short next to him, and the Phelps twins look maximum 3 inches taller than him (besides they have the shoes advantage over him):

Click Here
Rob 5'11.5" or at least 5'11.25" is possible for him?
Editor Rob
I think an honest 5ft 11, at times he has passed for 11.25, but then on Discovery, I don't think he looked more than just 5ft 11.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Aug/18
Rob must be kidding. Jason Issacs certainly look over 5'11 with Felton and the Phelps Twins. I did see him as high as 5'11 1/2 and 5'11 1/4 low.
Editor Rob

"Certainly isaacs is well over 5ft 10"

I'm not sure why that would be kidding, well over implies more than half inch.
Dmeyer said on 16/Jul/18
Close to my height in person not as short as 179 or taller than 180
Jamie3557 said on 15/Jul/18
He actually looked a strong 5' 11" in person.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/18
Can see him measuring around 179-180cm
Editor Rob

Certainly isaacs is well over 5ft 10.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Jun/18
He look 5'11 1/2 with the 6'2 1/2 phelps brothers.
Dmeyer said on 3/Mar/18
Similar height to Brad Pitt if not taller on the movie
Ted said on 27/Sep/17
182cm in the morning .
Flyin said on 26/Aug/17
Seeing some old snaps from the premiership of black hawk down he is 180,what I think is Orlando bloom needs a downgrade to 177cm based on some of the pics.
S.J.H said on 13/Jun/17
Either jason issacs is 5'11 and matt damon is 5'9.25 or since jason issacs claim both 5'10 and 5'11 so give it the middle digit 5'10.5 and matt damon is 5'9
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/16
Rob, maybe somewhere between those two claims?
Editor Rob: if he's under 5ft 11 it's not by much Rampage...
headman said on 24/Nov/16
I say 5'10, I considering him having that height listed in that movie with jackie chan, Rob, what would you say his head length is?
Editor Rob: headman, definitely over 9 inches, but not more than 9.5, close to that mark though.
S.J.H said on 11/Nov/16
Maybe he was 5'10.5 so he putting down 5'10 at a time and decided to round up 5'11?
Mike said on 28/Jul/16
Towers over Radcliffe, 4 inches taller than 5ft 7-8 Rupert Grint, and isn't much shorter than Robert Pattinson. Definitely more 5ft 11 than 10.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/16
Rob, why is he listed 5ft11 if he claimed 5ft10?
Editor Rob: he's been quoted saying both...the 5ft 10 might have been a misquote, I don't think he looks that short.
Judd said on 31/Jan/15
Yeah I think 5'11" is accurate...I don't have a full knowledge of his filmography but from what I can see he's a tricky guy...in Harry potter for example he does look tall, at least 5'11", but in the patriot he had at least 2" less than Tom Wilkinson (6'1") and was defeated by Adam Baldwin who towered on him (he does look also very close to Mel Gibson, although I think wore lifts)...
Dmeyer said on 24/Jan/15
0.5-0.6in shorter is very possible he was almost my height in person while i have a bit more shoes so no léss than 5'11
Judd said on 16/Nov/14
Dmeyer says on 8/Jun/13
I met him he was about 2cm shorter than me but i Had 1cm more footwear he is realy à solid 5'11 about 6 ft With sneakers on

With only 1 cm less than you he should be more 5'11.25" than 5'11"...
Are you sure there were only 0,3-4" between you?
mike said on 22/Oct/14
Closer to 5ft 11 than 10
Kevin said on 21/Aug/14
In Harry Potter looks 184cm

If Tom Felton is 5'8.5,'' then I can see a 5'11'' max for Jason Isaacs.
cole said on 10/May/14
But then he does look about an inch taller than Orlando Bloom, and the same height, if not a teensy bit taller than Viggo Mortensen. There's also every chance that Hartnett is a 190 cm guy as well. 180 cm is fine for Jason imo. Maybe 5'10.75 could be a good listing, but 5'10.5 feels a little low - unless Bloom is 5'9.5 and Mortensen is 5'10.25.
cole said on 10/May/14
With 6'2.5 Josh Hartnett he could be 5'10.5: Click Here
Sam said on 30/Apr/14
In the Jackie Chan movie The Tuxedo, Isaacs's character is credited with a height of 5'10". Maybe he is more of 5'10.5" than a full 5'11".
MD said on 19/Jan/14
Yeah, I'd be happy with 5'10.5" for him, myself.
avi said on 17/Jan/14
@Rob

I think you should put 5'10.5 . I too thought he was 5'11 but he seems to be a weak 5'11 at best like 5'10.7. If he claimed 5'10 and 5'11 common sense is he's in between. Or 5'11 was a shoe height.

@MD

First pic he look close to 6'0. The other sacha baron Cohen pic is bad. Weird angle.even so Isaacs looks 5'10.

The one next to 5'8.5 guy he looks 5'10.5. I think he's a 5'10.5 guy.
Emily said on 20/Dec/13
He's not a mm over 5'10.
Realist said on 17/Dec/13
He looks 6'0 in Harry Potter but 5'9.5 in Black Hawk Down cause Hartnett is huge. He must be 5'10. Rob time to downgrade.
MD said on 11/Nov/13
Rob,

His quote from 2001 may actually be more near the truth.

Usually, I'd compromise and say it'd be enough to take off half-an-inch. But, in this case, I think we should take him at his original claim. There doesn't look to be any way he's above 5'10".
[Editor Rob: 5ft 10.5 could be on the money, at times he can look anywhere from 5ft 10 to 11.]
Baconlover said on 7/Nov/13
I met Jason about 7 years ago in Providence RI while he was filming brotherhood. I'm 5'10" and he was at least 2in short than me. Sorry but camera angles do great work. Having said that he was wicked nice and she'd me a good spot to buy a house.
cole said on 24/Sep/13
He mostly strikes me as a tiny bit under 5'11, so 5'10.5 or perhaps 5'10.75 is a good shout?
Dmeyer said on 8/Jun/13
I met him he was about 2cm shorter than me but i Had 1cm more footwear he is realy à solid 5'11 about 6 ft With sneakers on
jtm said on 8/Jun/13
closer to 5'10.
MaskDeMasque said on 20/Oct/12
Watching Awake earlier and i thought he looked like a 5'10 dude.
Derek said on 17/Oct/12
5'10.5" may be a good shout for this guy. Like others have said, he could round up or down at times.
Dmeyer said on 2/Aug/12
I met him hé was a bit smaller than me but i had 0.3 in more shoes so 5'11 bang on
MD said on 16/Oct/11
With 5'10.75" Viggo Mortensen:

Click Here

There are a few more photos around that time showing Isaacs taller, but it's because of footwear difference (he and Boots and Viggo in normal dress shoes). I think this listing is about right. Maybe a quarter-inch in either direction.
TruebloodFan said on 3/Oct/11
@avi says on 13/Mar/11
Could he be 5'10 1/2 and rounds down or up at times??

check out the movie 'Good' from 2008. he's a bit shorter than 5'11 Viggo Mortensen, I'd agree with your 5'10.5 estimate.
jake said on 6/Jun/11
5'10.5- 5'10.75 perhaps closer. He looked reasonably tall as Lucius Malfoy.
avi said on 13/Mar/11
Rob or anyone else who can come up with a good guess, why on earth would he say 5'10?? what actor downgrades his height. He looks 5'11 and even 6'0 next to some actors who claim 6'1 or 6'2. like in the patriot he looks 6'0ish next to 6'1 Tom Wilkinson but body shots of Issac look 5'10-5'11. Could he be 5'10 1/2 and rounds down or up at times??

[Editor Rob: he has been quoted saying 5ft 10 and 11. There is a chance the journalist wrote down 5ft 10 instead of 11, sometimes that happens.

I've seen the same newspaper quote the same actress giving different heights a few years apart...]

I recently saw Michael Sheen and Jason Isaacs at The BAFTAS backstage show in London, where they both came and talked to an audience of film lovers. I was only a few yards away from them both and Michael Sheen looked 5 9" Max (I was actually suprised he werent taller) and Jason Isaac cleared him by a good 2 inches. so 5 11" seems bang on for Isaacs

Has a wonderful talent for character acting and 5'10 min 5'11 max looks right.
dmeyer said on 30/Nov/07
did he realy claim 5'10

[Editor Rob: it's in the newspaper 100%, whether or not he said it I don't know...could have been one case of saying 5ft 11 and the journo writing down 5ft 10. Happens on occasions.]
robbie H said on 10/Nov/07
i think viggo looks a strong 6 foot in the films iv seen him in, and he doesnt seem the type to fuss about his height, i might be wrong though- i think issacs is a 5-11 though
sarah said on 8/Nov/07
he's in a new movie "Good" with Viggo Mortensen, and in the released stills Isaacs is just a bit shorter, although Viggo could be wearing heels. Viggo is usually pegged at 5'11" -- maybe Isaacs is 10.75" and Mortensen 11.25" ?
dmeyer said on 12/Jun/07
seems about 180 mark in person i was shoked since bruce willis was 2 in taller than him in armaggedon and in some scene only 1.5 in shorter than affleck si 6'0.5 to 6'1 in that movie bruce was easy 5'11.5 guy and now 180

Looked between 5'10"-5'11" next to Jonathan ross at that comedy awards show tonight (13th Dec).
Editor Rob said on 7/Sep/06
Oh Oh,
Quoted in the Mirror, 2001 as saying "I'm 5ft 10ins, so I'm hardly small".

Him saying 5ft 10 and Radcliffe saying "5ft 5.5", hmm.
Gotxo said on 15/Aug/06
dmeyer-Interesting, without doubt Isaac looks a solid 5'11"!
Have here another Sly case? Does Bruce Willis care about his height in order tha the producers might think of him when a new though guy role is available?
It's sad that Frank2 has no histories on that kind of issue, i mean, they must earn something from appearing taller, otherwise is a lot of nuissances only to appear taller (or is vanity such an compelling force?)
dmeyer said on 13/Aug/06
bruce willis looked a full 2 inches taller than him bruce defenetly wear something i have a friend that met both willis and isaacs and told me issacs was taller
john link said on 3/Jun/06
This sounds pretty accurate. At the empire awards he towered over Daniel Radcliffe, who was most likely wearing some trusty elevator shoes. It leads me to believe that Radcliffe may be even shorter than 5'4".
andria said on 1/Apr/06
i have a pic w/ him... i'm 5'3" wearing 3-4" heels and he's about 4" taller so i think 5'11" is right on the nose
