I did give Jay 6'3.5" peak and 6'2.5" now. He look taller in the 90s and might be someone shrunk early in his 40s like Vince Vaughn, Edge and The Rock.

Rob mention him 6'3.5" peak but still leave him at 6'4?? I bet he could be 6'2.75" now.

I wonder who would edge out the other standing back to back- Vincent D'onofrio or Jay o. Sanders?
Editor Rob
I'm sure Vince would.

Was gonna say, was watching the movie, JFK again last night, and he easily edges out Kevin Costner by a good 3 inches. I agree though, no more than 6'3.5" prime height.
CDS said on 3/Sep/18
Why am I seeing 6'2" listings for him now??
Editor Rob
He could have shrunk by now an inch of course, but back in the 90's, at least with guys like Morgan Freeman he was taller than him in Kiss the Girls. Maybe 6ft 3.5 though.

Saw this guy in a restaurant once in NYC, unfortunately didn't see him standing but he looked just like he does on screen.

@Christian: yup just as bad as Michael Phelps being listed 6'4 too. But at least he being an athlete we can tell is a shoe height. I've seen phelps in AC and shook hands with him and was 2" taller than he was. Phelps looks a strong 6'2. No less than 6'2.25 but absolutely not more than 6'2.5 max
Junior said on 18/Aug/17
6'3.5" at most. He might just be 6'3.5" at peak and i'm not sure he is even 6'3.25" now. I'll go with 6'3.5" for a generous vote.

His 6'4" listing is even worse than Boris Kodjoe's. At least Boris looks 6'3". Sanders doesn't even look 6'2.75"
Editor Rob
I think he has likely shrunk a bit, but go back to early 90's, he looked over 6ft 3 I feel.
Canson said on 18/Jun/17
This guy is definitely the smallest 6'4" I've ever seen. I can agree with Bobby and S.J.H he's 6'2 and change prob and 6'3.5-.75 in shoes
S.J.H said on 5/Feb/17
6'3 peak and 6'2.5 now. He never was 6'4. 6'4.5 Tim robbins look at least 1.5" taller in 2011 Green Lantern. O. Sanders might just be 6'2.25 like BOBBYH3342 said but 0.25 higher. Assuming tim robbins was a real 6'4.5 guy like he claim it 20 years way back before the 6'5 claim then O. Sanders is no more than 6'2.5

He does look a bit less than this w/h Robbins. Not about under 6ft3, though.

192cm, Rob?
181cm Lift Wearer said on 16/Dec/15
S.J.H Robbins is not even a full 6'5, hes 6'4.75, so that means Sanders is 6'2.75
S.J.H said on 15/Dec/15
No way O-Sanders was 6'4. He edge out a clear 2inch by 6'5 tim robbins in Green Lantern. He must be 6'3 but not 6'4

Rob, have you seen Sanders in the first season of True Detective? He has a couple of scenes, including one with Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and Kevin Dunn, and another with McConaughey alone. He looked very tall indeed, but I wouldn't say 6'4". More in the 6'2" range, give or take. His scenes as the Reverend Billy Lee Tuttle should be available on YouTube (with minor spoilers). As for JFK, pictures from the set reveal the apparent difference in shoe thickness between him and Costner. I'd be curious to know your thoughts.

he could look in the 6ft 3 range with Costner.

Also, in JFK (1991), Rob.

Looked a strong 6ft4 w/h Costner
jessman said on 24/Sep/15
He appeared in law and order criminal intent and was about the same height as Vincent D'Onofrio.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Sep/15
Yeah, big dude...

Saw this guy once in a restaurant in NYC, a big beefy guy for sure and within that height range.
