Think hostel should be added to his credits as it's what he's most known for. 5ft 8 looks right next to Jordan ladd

He looks a strong 5'8'' to me like 174cm.

This seems like an accurate listing!

Jay looks just under the 5-8 mark. He looks comparatively shorter than Will Smith by at least 5 inches in this pic... Click Here
. Probably 5-8.25 at peak in the morning, and drops to 5-7.5 at night. Around 5-7.75 for most of the day, so I'll make 172cm my guess.

Looked significantly short in hostel, even with the girls. Although he would be about 5ft 8 in the morning.

Only 5'8? He looks 5'10 to 5'11 in Carlito's Way Rise to Power and next to 5'6 Luis Guzman. Jay must've worn lifts in that movie for sure.

Was Jay the volleyball coach who got killed Monday night on Hawaii 5-0?

id say 5'5 after watching hostel. his friend that gets his ankles slit is only around 5'9 and he is significantly shorter than him. 5'6 tops.
Derek Richardson (the guy that got his ankles slit) is actually 6ft1 not 5ft9. So a 5ft8 guy will look considerably shorter than someone who is 5" taller.

Perhaps 5"8 1/2.

I think 171-172 cm is more likely.

since when was 5'9 small thats the average height in America, In a lot of places 5'9 is pretty tall, I could understand 5'5 or 5'4 being really small but 5'8-5'9? come on now thats not that small and Im only saying cuz I stand barely below 5'9...

The first time in Hostel the tall blonde girl walks past him she looks about 5 inches taller. For the rest of the movie they are much closer in height. Either she took off her heels or he put on his. Either way, he was absolutely awesome in the film.

The leading lady of Torque Monet Mazur is listed 5'9'' which is kinda stretch, but she migth be 5'8.5''...In the movie she looks shorter than Martin and co. so could it be that all the shorter guys had lifts...http://cache.gettyimages.com/thumb/2869741.jpg?x=x&a=2869741&b=editorial&t=1

Nevermind the slope, but I think they all have pretty similar biking boots...http://www.uncut.at/filme/torque/b10.jpg In this pic Martin and Ice Cube look the same heigth, but Martin is standing closer to the camera...Ice Cube is def. the tallest of the short guys one centemeter to Martin and 2 cm to Jay ; )[Editor Rob: Good image, I tilted the first one to try to make the road horizontal Modified Version. My own opinion is that I think Cube has the largest boots in that film, maybe in his contract demanding to look bigger than henderson ;). Monet Mazur, looks in the 173 range to me, although she does do some hip slouching. Henderson really can still be 174.]

I think 5'8''is really close. I'd list the Torque "short" guys Ice Cube 173 cm, Martin Henderson 172 cm and Jay being the shortest 171 cm. In every scene where Martin is standing next to Ice Cube he is usually one cm shorter and I bet that they didn't wanna make the star shorter than the thug...http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0329691/Ss/0329691/TQC-7877R.jpg?path=gallery&path_key=0329691...Btw it is funny that Max Beesley who is around 5'10'' looks taller than average in the movie...[Editor Rob: Yeah, you know I knew Henderson was pretty short as I remember him in a soap opera looking quite short, but I forget that he could be shorter!. His Agency CV does list Henderson as 5ft 9. BUT, without doubt we know from Cube's video of Check Yo Self that he is 173cm as he stands beside the police chart. Unless Ice has lifts Henderson looks 172 and then Jay 171. That sounds right...Beesley in other stuff is distinctly average.]

That's funny that he says he's 5'10" yet is exactly 2 inches shorter than Puffy (who truly is 5'10"). Didn't realize he was this small.
Lmeister said on 4/Apr/05
I don't really understand how the guys can tell to the press that they are around 5'10'' if they are around 5'8''. Jay looked a bit shorter in Torque than 5'8.5'' Martin Henderson and he was also shorter than Ice Cube. I think he is barely 5'8''. http://cache.gettyimages.com/thumb/2869815.jpg?x=x&a=2869815&b=editorial&t=1
I know the angle isn't the best, but Henderson is wearing old school basketball shoes which is like wearing sandals...
[Editor Rob: yeah, I can take another 1cm of this guy. I was being generous with him, I just remembered him in that Ladder 49 with Joaquin ;) ]
