Rob, could he be 6ft2 flat these days?


In some of the more recent photos he actually looks shorter than Jim Carrey! He probably does still edge him but there's definitely not as much between them as there was 23 years ago. He's a few years older than Jim so it's logical he shipped some...

Great downgrade. But i still can't see him big 6'2, i bet rob meet Jeff Daniels in real he would get a max downgrade for him at 6'1.75 , jim carrey is not over 6'1 nowadays

Jim Carrey peak 6'1.5 , 6'1 now
Jeff Daniel peak 6'2.5 , 6'1.75 now
6'1.5 said on 10/Jun/17
Rob who do you think would have measured taller, peak Daniels or Brandon Routh
berta said on 19/May/17
i think in 1994 jeff looked maybe 1 inch taller than carreey but that is max and today half inch. This listing is probably the best option but to be exact he was probably 3 mm under
Darren510 said on 7/May/17
2 inches over Carrey is nonsense. He barely had an inch over Carrey
berta said on 5/May/17
this listing is good. this is what he looks
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 24/Apr/17
He finally got a slight downgrade. 6'2 1/4" is definitely more accurate for today than 6'2 1/2" as he just barely looks 6'2" (occasionally over).
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 4/Apr/17
Will Ferrell and Dwayne John/the Rock in their peaks might actually edge out Jeff Daniels when he was in his peak.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 4/Apr/17
Jeff Daniels actually had worse posture than Jim Carrey did in Dumb and Dumber (as Jeff Daniels is actually known for having wretched posture), which is why the difference appeared to be less than an inch at times. When both stand up straight, there's at least an inch (or sometimes more between them). That being said, I really think that 190 CM/6'2 3/4" might be a better a shout for his peak than 6'3" is as he never really appears to be the full 6'3" by other actors (except on rare occasions). He also was no more than 1 CM taller than Ben Affleck. Today he's 6'2"-6'2 1/4".
S.J.H said on 1/Apr/17
Jim carrey is more like 6'1. Jeff daniel 6'1.75 don't look full inch taller than carrey
berta said on 26/Mar/17
peak 189,5-190
Now 188,5-189
Charlie said on 23/Mar/17
I thought Jeff was somewhere around 5 ft 10 to 5 ft 11. He didn't strike me as overly tall in Dumb and Dumber. In Dumb and Dumber he only looked 4 inches taller than Lauren Holly. The scene where they are making a snowman he literally looks 4 inches taller.Ill say Jeff Is 5 ft 11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/17
Can look barely 6ft2 these days
S.J.H said on 19/Mar/17
I would say real height 6'1.5 and peak 6'2
Mark(5'9.25") said on 11/Mar/17
I think 6'2.75" peak and 6'2.25" now. He was taller than Jim Carrey.
S.J.H said on 7/Mar/17
Click Here 6'4 Matty Cardarople tilt down his head and still look about 2" eye level taller than jeff daniel. Daniels is under 6'1.5-6'1.75

Peak: 189-190
Now: 188-189
Arch Stanton said on 3/Jan/17
I'm going with 6'2.75 peak and 6'2 now.
berta said on 18/Nov/16
peak 190 was at most 3 cm taller than carrey and now i see almost 2 cm beetween them
berta said on 26/Oct/16
if he was 191 peak then carrey was 188. he was probably more in the 190 range
Anthony Paul said on 16/Oct/16
Behankalawda sir Jeff Daniels might be a legit 6 foot 2 man today
Judd said on 12/Oct/16
I think he was a solid 1" taller than Jim Carey so 6'2.5" at peak is the best choice IMO...today he's 6'2" flat IMO

He looked barely 2in taller than Fassbender!
Mark said on 22/May/16
@Celebheights 6'1.75" Camera angle is actually more in favor of Fassbender. Also, image is distorted and Daniel is slouching more like a snail than Fassbender is leaning.
Celebheights 6'1.75 said on 24/Apr/16
By 5'11" listed Michael Fassbender:

He doesn't look 189 CM by him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
Well Rob, Purple Rose of Cairo he was maybe a bit taller than Danny Aiello and Something Wild w/h Ray Liotta. He had a few inches on Ray.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/16
You know, even 30 years ago 6ft3 looked questionable.

190cm peak, Rob?
Editor Rob: I'd need to see him 30 years ago again to get an idea
Judd ISR said on 8/Oct/15
In the 90's he could have passed for a decent 6'3" although in dumb&dumber he wasn't 1,5" taller than Jim Carrey with similar shoes.
If Carrey is 6'1-1.5" (I think 6'1.25" is fair for him) then Daniels was probably 6'2.5"!
Today maybe he has lost a small fraction!
Nils said on 6/Oct/15
seems 6'2 range to me.. maybe less
possible over 6'2 peak but not much more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/15
Rob, do you think he still clears 6ft2?
Sam said on 18/May/15
I see him more as 6'2.5"-6'2.75" peak, 6'2" now but this works too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/15
@Darth Nihilus: Today it's closer for sure and no way was there ever a full 2in between Daniels and Carrey. Around 1in or a tad more at worst.
Darth Nihilus said on 7/Apr/15
6'2.5" is nonsense. Jeff Daniels is a legit 6'3", that's for sure. He had a full two inches on Jim Carrey.

Jeff Daniels: 191 cm (6'3")
Jim Carrey: 186 cm (6'1")
James B said on 7/Apr/15
6'2.75 peak probably and today 188-189cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/15
230lbs minimum also
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/15
Yes, agreed with Rampage, I think you have him right now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/14
Spot on, Rob. Definitely looks this next to Carrey in Dumber & Dumber To
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/14
Watching the film now, Jeff Daniels is wearing Timberland-like suede boots and Ryan is in plastic superhero red boots which are fairly flattish I think. Daniels looks a bit taller in the film but has footwear advantage I think.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/14
and the TV series The Newsroom of course too!
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/14
Rob check him out with Ryan Reynolds Click Here Can't see footwear, but difficult to see a big 191 now and that was four years ago. I think Rampage is right. 6'2.5 looks on the money nowadays. Can you add a photo and films like The Purple Rose of Cairo, Gettysburg, 101 Dalmatians, Pleasantville, and The Squid and the Whale?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/14
"Peak height was 6ft 3in (191cm)"
"Jeff Daniel's height is 6ft 2½in (189cm)"
Arch Stanton said on 4/Nov/14
6'2" flat actually considering footwear might be a better shout now. Lost an inch at 60 perhaps.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Nov/14
Rob any chance of a downgrade to 6'2.5" now? Check out Click Here and his footwear. Can't see a full 6'3" any longer.
[Editor Rob: both him and carrey have same footwear, I think he could still be an inch taller, 6ft 2.5 today is possible.]
jtm said on 27/Oct/14
i don't agree 187cm today is too low. he looks that height nowadays.
jtm said on 26/Oct/14
6'2 peak and 6'1.5 today.
miko said on 25/Oct/14
He's nearly 60 and down to around 6'2 IMO. He's lost height around his upper back/neck area.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
Not quite 6ft3 anymore surely but shorter than Carrey?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
He really does look 6ft2.5/189cm tops next to Carrey
miko said on 29/Sep/14
He looks to be just about edging out Carrey in Dumb & Dumber 2. It wouldn't surprise me if Jeff is down to just above 6'2 today.
Sam said on 24/Sep/14
Rob, it hard's for me to picture as taller than someone like Lance Reddick. Do you really think he looks the full 6'3"?
[Editor Rob: he can look under 6ft 3 at times yeah, maybe moreso nearer 6ft 2 lately aswell.]
Sam said on 23/Sep/14
I think 6'2.5" is a better peak listing. He looked more than 2 inches shorter than 6'5" Edward Herrmann, only about 1-1.5 inches taller than 6'1.25" listed Jim Carrey and mysteriously was similar to height to a post-height loss Clint Eastwood in Blood Work. Any chance of a downgrade here?
Judd said on 19/Sep/14
I bet Daniels was 6'2.25-5" peAk and 6'2" today, while Carrey is 6'1.25-1.5"
Juan Z said on 8/Aug/14
6'2 ft
(188-189 cm)
Lenad is sexy said on 13/Jun/14
I suspect he's closer to 6'2 now. Only looks like an inch taller than Jim Carrey in trailers for the new dumb and dumber movie. If he still is 6'3 or close to it then Carrey is a legit 6'2 easy though

Saw Jeff 30 years ago in New York filming the Woody Allen movie. He was 6-3 then.
[Editor Rob: how can you even remember or be able to judge height 30 years ago when you were but a 12 year old?]

I got twenty/twenty memory. LOL
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/14
[Editor Rob: how can you even remember or be able to judge height 30 years ago when you were but a 12 year old?]

Well, I was 14 or 15 when I saw Christopher Lloyd on that pier in Santa Barbara shooting My Favourite Martian back in June 1997 I think it was and I still have a vivid picture in my mind of how he looked! That was only about 15 years ago though... All I can say though really is that he looked a noticeably tall guy on set, I couldn't be sure of his exact height but he was stood only about 10-15 feet away in between takes and from what I recall nearer 6'1" would be more likely than his height today anyway!

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jan/14
Rob, is 190cm range maybe closer for Jeff?

There are occasions when he can look barely 6ft2
[Editor Rob: he can look nearer 6ft 2 at times last couple years...he could have been more 190 and now 189ish]
sigge said on 10/Jan/14
I doubt he is more than 189 cm today, peak was probably just below 6'3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Nov/13
Big chunky 6ft2.5in/189cm.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Sep/13
Back in 1983 in Terms of Endearment he was a skinny chap, nearer 190 back than. Definitely looks around this though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/13
Looks a lot heavier than 210lbs. I'd say 230lbs at least.
Scott five eleven said on 7/Sep/13
Yeah there wasn't much between him and jim carrey in dumb and dumber. I'd say jeff is
6'2.5 and jim 6'1.5 at best
lelman said on 1/Aug/13
Didn't look much taller than Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber, who I doubt is 6'1.5" as listed. I'd say Jim is closer to 6'1" and Jeff is closer to 6'2".
Sam said on 19/Jul/13
I think he's really more in the 6'2"-6'3" range. Sometimes he can look shorter with loose posture (looks close in height to aged Clint Eastwood), at other times he can rise up to full height and stand out (three inches taller than Ray Liotta in Something Wild).
Ajax said on 14/Jul/13
Saw him at the Apple Store in NYC a week ago... Very tall guy - I'd say 6 ft 3 is right on
daydreamer said on 7/Jan/13
in state of play he is about an inch taller than ben affleck. 191 seems right to me, cause ben is at least 188...

Virtually the same height as 6ft2 Matthew Goode...
The Exorcist said on 20/Nov/12
Strong 6'2".
miko said on 16/Nov/12
Daniels is 57 now, it's more than possible he's lost an inch. He doesn't look much over 6'2 today.
James said on 15/Nov/12
Rob YouTube Jeff Daniels on Craig Ferguson.... In all seriousness he looks no taller than 6'2 if Craig is 6'1.5.
James said on 17/Oct/12
189-190cm range for daniels

In blood work Daniels was wearing lower cut shoea
Dmeyer said on 20/Aug/12
In Blood work Eastwood was ní´ more than 6'1.5-2 and was as tall as daniels
Hob said on 28/Jul/12
sometime he can bizarrely look a flat 6'0 in picture. but posture wise consider he is closer to 6'2 and so 6'3 in shoe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/12
Looks a legit 6ft3(190.5cm) in pretty much all of his movies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/12
Danimal, Goodman was 6ft2, maybe just over at his peak.
Never quite 6ft3
Bakura said on 9/Dec/11
@Godred- Um, no, there was 1.5 inches between them at most, and Daniels had footwear advantage.
Silent d said on 1/Dec/11
In mama's boy a little taller than 6 foot 1 jon heder. He has bad posture. How tall is diane keaton? She looked tall in that movie. 6 foot 3. No doubt about it.
Godred said on 24/Oct/11
@Danimal - Way more than 1 inch difference in Dumb and Dumber.
Danimal said on 17/Oct/11
LAN Jiao says on 4/Oct/11
Someone rule out jim carrey six-foot tall in real. Jeff daniel would 6'1.25
DejaVu says on 28/Sep/11
He had 4 inches if not at least 3.5 inches on Russell Crowe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Sep/11
Agreed James. I think this guy leaves 6"2 open to Jim Carrey because in Dumb and Dumber there was 1in between them.
Jeff Daniels, Sacha Baron Cohen, The Rock and Will Ferrell are the only legit 6"3 guys in Hollywood.

So was John Goodman at his peak.
LAN Jiao said on 17/Oct/11
to me daniels always look 187cm. never 6'3. some even beleive he is 6'4 peak. doubt he never lost over a cm today. 6'2 i might took it.

In Bloodwork could have lows of looking 6'2.5 next too clint eastwood but i think that has something too do with his posture and the fact he was wearing converse.

6'3 no more and no less.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/11
Michael Richards? Kramer from Seinfeld? He definitely looks a bit taller than 6ft3, probably 192cm. He always towered over Jerry Seinfield
talker said on 12/Aug/11
he's probably 6'2.5"(1.89m) and rounds up to 6'3".I stood next to him once a long time ago,about 25 years ago in NYC and he seemed about 6'2",Michael Richards is an inch taller than him in the movie Trial and Error,Richards is also listed 6'3" but he must be about 1.92m which is 6'3.5".Tall people usually dont bother with halves ,they either round up or down.These guys are listed the same,they are both around 6'3" but still have about an inch between them.
Legend said on 20/Jul/11
He's 6'2
Yaspaa said on 22/Jun/11
Yeah, being huskier can give the 6'2 impression.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/11
This listing is fine...one of the few genuine 191cm guys on screen
Lenad is sexy said on 1/May/11
Looked 1-1.5 inches taller than Jim Carrey (6'1-6'1.5) in Dumb and Dumber. I'd say he was a weak 6ft3. Today still at least 6ft2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/11
He's gotten a bit huskier in recent years so may from time to time give a 6"2 impression...
Rob2 said on 29/Apr/11
Looks more like a flat 6'2.
Adam said on 18/Apr/11
Not so sure about this. Ryan Reynolds looked taller than him throughout Paper Man. Unless he shrunk some.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Apr/11
Would measure at 192cm out of bed
Bon_ said on 25/Mar/11
I also now think he might be a strong 6'3...but that would make Reeves closer to 6'2
Mathew said on 17/Mar/11
He's roughly 6'3" but has bad posture, he's really no less than 6'2.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/11
I'm convinced he's 6"3...
Bon_ said on 11/Feb/11
189-190 cm definitively
Bon_ said on 1/Feb/11
Carrey is no more than 6' flat, he's been well studied by Dill Pickle.
He 's probably one of those average guys dreaming of 6'2, something which seems to be a very common disease.
Bon_ said on 30/Jan/11
6'2.5 at peak most likely
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/11
I think Jim Carrey could be a hair under 6"2 if he stood erect but he never does so he usually that's why he appears 6"1 flat or less...
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Jan/11
Had 1-1.5inches on Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber. I doubt Carrey is taller than 6'1.5 so Daniels was probably a weak 6'3
Lenad is sexy said on 14/Jan/11
Yeah he's at least a flat 6 ft 2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Dec/10
6"1.5 is far too low...

He might actually be 6"3 afterall...he has terrible posture
Detroit 187 said on 17/Dec/10
I JUST got done filming with him. He is currently 6'1.5".
Lenad is sexy said on 27/Nov/10
6'3 max. 190cm is probably closer to the truth
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/10
Looks 6"2 with Keanu Reeves.
jtm said on 19/Nov/10
dill pickle was right as usual.
Bon said on 18/Nov/10
189-190 at peak. So basically a strong 6'2/weak 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/10
Carrey is 6"1.75(187cm)
Daniels is 6"2.75(190cm)
James said on 31/Oct/10
Peak 6'2.5 and currently 6'2 (188cm) possibly?

He did not look a full 6'3 with weak 6'1 keanu reeves

I ran into Jeff at the Michigan 500 race, even got a pic, my first reaction is how tall he is,trust me is 6ft3 minimum!

On Dumb & Dumber you can see that he is about an inch taller than Jim Carey

I saw Jeff about 20 years ago too, while he was filming The Purple Rose of Cairo for Woody Allen. They filmed a part of it at the home of friends. Jeff walked past me after filming for the day, and 6-3 seemed believable.
talker said on 9/Aug/05
I've walked past jeff in NY about 20 years ago and he looked about 6'2" to me then.
