I'm 6-feet-3 but when I wear my Sly Stallone shoes, I'm 6-feet-5.
[on Playing James Comey]
We put Two-Inch lifts in my black leather shoes and I'm walking around on what feels like stilts. But I'm not even close to the Giant that Jim is, which is good because if we were really gonna make me Six-Eight, we'd have to put me in Elton John platforms.

Could you add Something Wild to his film credits?

As for his height, he looked 6'2ish beside Melanie Griffith and Ray Liotta in Something Wild.

looked a strong inch taller than Jim Carrey. I agree with this 189.9cm peak listing.
Rory said on 9/Jun/23
Looks 1.5 inches taller than Reeves in those pictures, so I'm not seeing 6ft3 there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/23
Actually, he does look around 6ft3 with Keanu Reeves in Speed

i would give Daniels 6'2 peak and Carrey 6'0.5.
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 3/May/23
In dumb and dumber Carrey 186cm, Daniels 189cm?

Rob, is it possible that Jeff was always a 6ft2 range guy?

If Michael Richards wasn't a full 6ft3, there's no way Jeff was! I gauge barely 6ft2 in these photos
Editor Rob
Always possible 6ft 2.5 peak.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 24/Jan/23
At peak Daniels peak weak 190cm, jim carrey solid 186cm. There seemed 2 inches at the very most between them and 1.5 is more like it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Dec/22
Sorbo, Smits and Shannon would easily have 2cm on this guy

Jeff looks under 6’2” in this clip.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 23/Mar/22
“ I'm 6-feet-3 but when I wear my Sly Stallone shoes, I'm 6-feet-5.”

Jeff is aware of Stallone’s tricks. Perhaps Rocky isn’t so sly in Hollywood afterall.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 23/Mar/22
In standalone photos, Jeff never looks strikingly tall since he proportionately looks average with a longer torso and skull, and he has narrow shoulders. His lengths are beneath the typical length for someone who is in the 6’2” range as well.

Whenever he stands next to someone, he usually appears to be at least 6’2 1/2”. I spotted a 2.5-3 centimeter difference between he and Jim Carrey. Nowadays, he’s more of a weak 6’2”.
Hyper said on 9/Sep/21
Ryan Reynolds has a footwear advantage over Jeff Daniels. Yet Jeff’s head is higher than Ryan.

Looks even taller than Brett Favre, with Ryan Reynolds.

I’m not sure what people are talking about.
Tall Sam said on 7/Sep/21
Daniels held up well in The Purple Rose of Cairo near 6’5” Edward Heermann, certainly not less than peak listing.
Jtm said on 7/Sep/21
he doesn't look taller than reynolds at all but whatever.
Hyper said on 4/Sep/21
He does beat out Ryan Reynolds.

I think both listings are fine for Jeff.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Apr/21
He really doesn’t look over 6ft2 today
berta said on 22/Mar/21
he and ryan reynold was the same exact height 10 years back in their movies together. reynolds always looks 189. this guy could have been 189 peak. he seemde 2 cm taller than carrey also and he is or was about 187.

🎂🎁🎊6️⃣ Happy Birthday Jeff! 6️⃣🎊🎁🎂

A Very Happy Birthday to Jeff Daniels, who today celebrates his 6️⃣6️⃣th Birthday. 😁👍

Peak height - 6ft2.75; today - 6ft2

Jtm said on 2/Feb/21
If you seen terms of endearment he looked shorter than John lithgow did with winger despite winger not wearing heels with Daniels but was with lithgow. That would make him a min 2 inches shorter than lithgow peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/21
Daniels - weak 6ft3
Carrey - weak 6ft2

That's usually how it looked in Dumb and Dumber
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jan/21
Rob, who do you think would measure taller peak between Jeff Daniels and Christopher McDonald?
Editor Rob
McDonald sometimes leaves me with a bigger impression, though it may not be the case he actually measured any taller than Jeff.
Hong said on 26/Dec/20
Click Here Here's jeff with 6ft2 Ryan Reynolds,his posture is not great but its a good full body shot of both guys,you can see footwear looks similar height.
Pat m said on 5/Dec/20
If Jeff's peak was 6ft2.75 that puts jim Carrey exactly 1 inch below him which makes sense
Dumb_Dumber said on 4/Dec/20
I think Carrey was a tad under 6’ 2” at perhaps 6’ 1.75” and Daniels looked always at least an inch taller than him. I think 6’ 3” flat was peak and now is 6’ 2.5”.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Oct/20
155lbs at 6'0" for a 65 year old man is very thin. One of my cousin's the same height and weight. but he's only 19 so his body hasn't fully matured yet, but even then he's skinny.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Oct/20
berta, I think 6ft2 flat is the shortest he'd measure today. He can still look 189cm at times now.
Ian555 said on 3/Aug/20
Rob, how about a downgrade to 2.5? I could see guys like Krasinski, Hoult and Elba measuring the same height as Daniels.
berta said on 15/Jun/20
lost almost 1 inch alreadty? that sounds alot. i think he could maybe been 189,5 range peak and 188-188,5 today. in reality lost around 1 cm. 2 cm sounds alot.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Mar/20
Same age as my dad but Jeff already drop 3/4 inch. My dad still keeping well at 5'11 1/2 from peak 6'0 also in a good shape at 155 lbs. Jeff Daniels still looking good maybe still 210 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Mar/20
Rob, could 6ft2½ peak and 6ft2 flat today be argued then?

It’d be the lowest I’d go for. His current peak is still fair. He looked close enough to 6ft3 in the 80’s-90’s
Editor Rob
Well today I think 6ft 2 on the nose is likely, peak 6ft 2.5 or 2.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/20
Rob, is it possible Jeff is now at a 6ft2 flat?
Editor Rob
It's looking likely
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/20
I don’t think there was ever more than an inch between Carrey and Daniels. The only way Jeff was ever possibly the full 6ft3 is if Carrey was the full 6ft2 (slimmer chance but not entirely impossible?)
Jkiller said on 29/Jan/20
Peak 6'2 and a half, 6'2 nowadays.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jul/19
@Dream If you insist Jeff is taller then he is, truth is Reynolds real height is a myth. He can edge out 6'1 guy by 2" and 6'2 guy by 1" but he can also look to be weak 6'3 strong 6'2. 6'4 Michael Strahan is struggle 1.5" taller than Reynolds. Paper Man was film in 2009 Jeff might still holding 6'2 1/2. Click Here Jeff head here is closer to camera and Ryan Reynolds looking straight to his eye never a tilt up in fact the eye tilt up goes to Jeff and look carefully Reynolds ear is half inch taller which he is 6'3 in this comparison if camera angle adjusted. Shoes heels wise we don't know if it is really Reynolds had advantage but it won't be much difference.
berta said on 3/Jul/19
peak is great listing he looked barely 3 cm taller than Jim carrey in dumb and dumber 1.I think a weak 190 cm guy. Today he can look 188 cm flat alot. But in his age people often look 1 cm shorter than when measured. My mom is son 65 years old. I thought she looked fraction shorter today than when she was younger and measured her. She was still the same exact height. But the posture is a little worse in some way and that can make them look 1 cm shorter
berta said on 3/Jul/19
yeah rampage he could have been 1 inch taller but thats max. they could look almost the same height in a lot of the scenes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/19
Duffer, I think he could still look about an inch taller than Carrey in the last Dumb & Dumber
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 8/Dec/18
Always stuck me as rather tall, but not overtly so. He was probably a weak 6'3" in his younger years, but I'd guess him as being on the weaker side of 6'2" today, he is nearly into his mid 60s after all. Carrey still looks a strong 6'1" and has probably only just lost half an inch, if that - both are not short blokes by any means.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 23/Aug/18
@Junior Jeff was wearing loathers while Reynolds was wearing something that gave him a boost. There's no camera advantage for Jeff Daniels. He looked taller than Ryan Reynolds.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/18
Daniels: 189.5cm
Carrey: 187.2cm

Really don't think Jim was too far from the 6ft2 mark
Dr JJ said on 3/Jun/18
Just watching Blood Work, with Clint Eastwood, 2002 movie. Jeff was definitely not owned by Clint in scenes where they are standing or walking together. I was like “whoa” and came straight on here. At that time, had to be 6’ 3” or not far off.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/May/18
@Dream You should watch the atual movie Paper Man. No obligation but in the opposite you think. Reynolds atually look a little taller than Jeff and there isn't problem with footwear. It's the camera angle deceiving you.

Click Here Jeff had camera advantage in this picture. Look at the size of his head and face and no way Reynolds head is this small.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 12/Mar/18

Even with footwear disadvantage, Jeff Daniels is definitely taller than Ryan Reynolds.

6’2.75” for peak works.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 10/Mar/18
There were several pictures where Jeff Daniels was taller than Ryan Reynolds.

Peak is dead-on correct. Not the full 6’3”, but never less than 6’2”
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
Carrey I don't really think has lost anything. He can still look 186-187cm today
Junior said on 20/Oct/17
I think there is only 1.5cm between Jeff and Jim Carrey nowadays since Dumb and Dumber II. 190cm peak for Jeff Daniel looks fine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/17
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...
S.J.H said on 16/Jun/17
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.
mister_lennon said on 5/Jan/17
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 he's 6'2" flat IMO
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Aug/16
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

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 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

[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!

he can look nearer 6ft 2 at times last couple years...he could have been more 190 and now 189ish

Big chunky 6ft2.5in/189cm.

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.

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

189-190cm range for daniels

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.

Looks a legit 6ft3(190.5cm) in pretty much all of his movies.

He had 4 inches if not at least 3.5 inches on Russell Crowe.

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.

Someone rule out jim carrey six-foot tall in real. Jeff daniel would 6'1.25
DejaVu said on 28/Sep/11
He had 4 inches if not at least 3.5 inches on Russell Crowe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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.
James said on 29/Aug/11
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.
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 of the few genuine 191cm guys on screen
Lenad 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 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 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 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)
r said on 6/Nov/10
Just watched Dumb and dummer . ..hes only about an inch taller than jim carrey so i'd say 6'3 is accurate.
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
Lenad said on 2/Jun/09
Minimum of an inch on Carrey who is 6'1 min so Daniels has to be 6'2 at the shortest. Jim Carrey is likely 185 186 range
yoyo said on 17/May/09
peak 6ft3. weak 6ft3 now. strong 6ft2.5 i agree with Hugh. 188 at less as Lenad mention. jim carrey was likely 184 185 range.
Lenad said on 4/May/09
From Dumb and Dumber I'd say Carrey is a strong 6'1 and Daniels is a weak 6'3
Lenad said on 18/Apr/09
I think Daniels is 188cm minimum and Carrey is 185cm minimum. There was at least 1 inch between them. I think because Jeffy boy has put on weight and probably has poorer posture that gives the impression of being shorter.
\\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 16/Feb/09
Peak 6ft3.25.
Now 6ft2.75.
Hugh said on 10/Jan/09
Okay 6ft3.5 is not out of the question.
Subetai said on 6/Jan/09
I know some Civil War re-enactors who were with Daniels in "Gods and Generals." They guessed his height at 6-3 or very close to it. One guy who is 6-1 said Daniels was taller than him by a good bit.
Hugh said on 31/Dec/08
Actually I'm coming around to the idea of Daniels being 6ft3.5 in his prime. These days I'd say he's around 190cm.
RICHARD said on 13/Nov/08
Keanu is a legit 6'1 guy,ELF
Elf said on 1/Nov/08
189cm looks about right. I noticed him standing next to Keanu in Speed in the elevator and he looked about 1.5 inches taller. Looks 6ft 2 and a half to me perhaps 6ft3 in good sized shoes. Keanu Reeves BTW only looked about two inches taller than Patrick Swayze in Point Break and Swayze is listed at a weak 5'10.
Hugh said on 13/Oct/08
CLEM says on 10/Oct/08
WOW i can't believe his even 6'3
on tv he looked like he was about 5'8 to 5'10

Just by looking at Jeff on tv it's quite obvious he was a tall guy. He still is a tall guy but he has lost a little height. 1-2cm.
CLEM said on 10/Oct/08

Leung said on 7/Oct/08
So true Horse of FUNK.
The Horse of FUNK said on 5/Oct/08
I see the terms "lifts" and "shrunk" being thrown around too liberally on here, especially lifts though.
Hugh said on 5/Oct/08
I mean nowadays. Dumb and Dumber was like 10 years ago and Daniels is likely to have shrunk since.
Big King said on 4/Oct/08
Hugh, there was more than an inch difference between Carrey and Daniels.
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
He's 6ft2.25 at least. I still don't think he's a full 6ft3 anymore. But that depends if Carrey is a full 6ft2 which I would not rule out. There was only about an inch at the very most between them. The only way Daniels can be 6ft3 is if Carrey is 6ft2.
Hugh said on 2/Oct/08
Dumb and Dumber was quite a while ago so Jeff could easily have lost height since. As of today Jeff is 188-189cm and Carrey is 187-188cm.
Hugh said on 29/Sep/08
I doubt it Big King. At first I thought he was about 6ft4 but then I keep seeing more recent pistures and he just doesn't look quite 6ft3 anymore. Remember he's a lot heavier these days which might give the impression he's taller. I think he's more 189cm nowadays. 6ft3 at his peak I can buy though. He still tall though.
Big King said on 29/Sep/08
I'm sure that Daniels is a strong 6'3". Maybe 6'3 1/4" is Jeff's true height.
Big King said on 25/Sep/08
Lenad, you are right. Jim Carrey isn't a full 6'2" if Daniels is really 6'3".
Lenad said on 23/Sep/08
He looked about 3-4cm taller than 187/188cm Jim Carrey in Dumber and Dumber.
Hugh said on 20/Sep/08
I don't think Jeff's quite 6ft3. 188-189cm nowadays. 6ft3 twenty years I could buy. 6ft3.5 is absurd. How does he even remotely look 192cm?
Big King said on 20/Sep/08
He looks a bot more than 6'3". I estimate him being 6'3 1/2".
Hugh said on 11/Sep/08
Okay, 6ft1.5 is crazy. But there is a fair chance he has lost some height due to posture or a bad bak.
thekiddd said on 11/Sep/08
6'2" isn't impossible. 6'1" is ridiculous.
Hugh said on 29/Aug/08
After watching Assassin I'm beginning to think he's a lot shorter than 6ft3. More like 6ft1.5-6ft2.
broskie said on 6/Aug/08
6'3" is about right for Jeff.
Mr. R said on 3/Aug/08
I met him years ago in New York when he was filming The Purple Rose of Cairo, and he was 6-3. He's gotten a little heavier, and I think that he has lost at least an inch.
Hugh said on 19/Jun/08
That's very possible James. I watched dumb & dumberer the other night. He seemed barely taller than Jim whose supposedly 6ft1.
Hugh said on 7/Jun/08
Looks only 4-5 inches taller than Don Cheadle.
Hugh said on 7/Jun/08
Looking at recent pics, This guy looks about 6ft1.5.
thekiddd said on 4/May/08
Jim Carrey is about 6'1" or 6'1 1/2". An inch and a half can sometimes look 2 inches so yeah, he's 6'3".
Hugh said on 18/Apr/08
How about 6ft3.5. 6ft2.5 is ridiculous.
RedMax said on 12/Apr/08
Jeff Daniels looked almost two inches taller than Jim Carrey. I would give Daniels almost 6'4".
Motown man said on 11/Aug/07
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!
Anonymous said on 19/Feb/07
On Dumb & Dumber you can see that he is about an inch taller than Jim Carey
Ball-A-Hallic said on 28/Jan/07
seemed about an inch and a half taller than jim carey who seems 6'1ish in dumb and dumber
footballed28 said on 20/Dec/06
he could be 6'3 since he was standing right next to me and we sized each other up pretty good...he had at least 2 inches on me
rkn said on 8/Jun/06
yeah men he is ma buddy..we sumtimes drink smthng..believe me he is 6 ft...he is a tall man!! but im more being tall isnt everythng..
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/05
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.
