i just remember him from house and if i remmeber right he did look on the shorter side. Im just gueszxing here but anything over 179 is impossxible and under 177 is also harder to argue. i think a weak 5´10 guy. somedays 5´10 other days 5´9 3/4

I’ve met him a ton of times, probably at least ten times, due to work, and I can tell you with a lot of first hand experience that he is a lot smaller than you imagine. Very comfortable and confident saying he is in the 5’8” to 5’8.5” range. He wears longer pants, causing bunching around the ankles, to hide the modest elevators he sometimes wears. It’s noticeable when he wears them because there is a 1.5” difference over his regular shoes. I am also happy to report that he is a very nice guy. Very friendly.

Not even near 172. Look at him next to the singer you listed 167. Click Here
He needs to be downgraded.
Johnny34 said on 8/Apr/22
He looks 14 cm taller than actress Murphy rip in the movie Uptown girls. They are both barefoot in one of the scenes.he needs to be downgraded to 172.

I must have got Jesse's birth date wrong. He was born in 1979 - according to the information I have just read.

🎁🎂🎈🎊 Happy Birthday Jesse! 🎊🎈🎂🎁

Many Happy Returns to Jesse Spencer, who celebrates his 43rd Birthday today.

I hope it's a great one, followed by the healthiest and happiest of New Years!

5ft10. 👱‍♀️🍻👨‍⚕️ XX 😁👌

There's a few surprise ones who made it to the US/Hollywood but as evidenced by Chris Hemsworth living in Byron Bay, Aus and shunning LA, it must be a crazy place to live, particularly now with all the homeless people and problems. I would have loved to have been a film star back in the Golden period Kirk Douglas generation but I'd hate it nowadays. LA is way too crowded and there's far too many actors in the industry now.

The younger Sky Mangel and Shane and Jesse McGregor (Dieter Brummer and Ben Unwin) from Home and Away are no longer with us unfortunately...

AMAZING to think that Jesse started his career in 'Neighbours', going on to star in 'House' with Hugh Laurie!


5ft10. 📺🏥🚑
Blanc (1.69 m) said on 16/May/21
well he ends up looking taller in the later seasons and holds up well even next to Epps
Blanc (5'7") said on 7/May/21
He's at most 5'9.75", definitely not just half inch shy of Taylor Kinney and cannot be exactly the same as Omar Epps

A Very Happy 41st Birthday to House actor Jesse Spencer. He must have been very young when he starred in House!

5ft10. 😁🍻😉🎈

1.77 with a nice long bone figure makes him look taller in films a nice fella

Typical 5'9.75" man, In that picture he looks fairly tall! 😍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jun/19
He plays such a lovely guy in 'House' and I love him for that! I'm watching 'House' right now and I know that the next tears are only moments away...

Sandy Cowell said on 5/Aug/18
Well I never knew Jesse was in 'Neighbours'!

To star in that and then go on to be in something as big as 'House' is most impressive. 'Neighbours' stars do seemed destined for bigger and better things; let's face it, this is hardly the first such success story!

Jesse gets 5ft10 from me.
Nik said on 20/Apr/18
5'9.75" - 5'10"!
Bobby said on 17/Apr/18
Average guess is 5'9.75 even though the listing is 5'10, this guy still looks about my height based on his proportions.
mjkzero said on 2/Jul/17
Hey Rob Can you explain how Jesse spencer looks so tall in this picture. He looks taller than 6ft 2 Hugh Laurie. I m guessing its the camera angle but even then he looks quite tall in this picture
Editor Rob
got to have a little camera advantage, but it's certainly added several inches to him.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Apr/17
I've just been channel hopping, and I arrived on the 'Horror' channel, as seems to be my custom, to find Jesse on my screen starring in a film called 'Curse of the Talisman'.
I only saw the end, but I did see what happened when this particular curse was in full throttle! It summoned angry 'demons' up which looked like little miniature flying dinosaurs - not scary, but rather comical!
Jesse looked very boyish in this 2001 film, but just 3 or 4 years later, he starred in 'House' as a fully qualified MD, so he must have been fully grown in this film. There was another mystery bloke quite a bit taller than him, which is pretty much what happened to him in 'House' standing next to some particularly tall actors like Hugh Laurie and Charles Dutton. I was fairly surprised that Jesse wasn't written up as a bit less than 5ft10, but that's the result of working with taller guys!
I won't dock his height for it! I liked him in house, and I have caught him in another pre-'House' film of the horror/thriller genre, the name of which I forget, but it wasn't bad!
5ft10 for Jesse from me today!
👥 😝

Spencer should be creditted first as being on Chicago Fire since he's the lead of the show and was just a bit character on House.
Lorne??? said on 18/Dec/15
177 for sure if Laurie was really flat 188cm. Even at 189cm, 177 was always a possibility for this guy, at 188, it's a virtual certainty.

I still think Hugh was nearer 189 than 188 though, so a weak 5'10 is still possible for Spencer. :)
cole said on 12/May/14
@Editor Rob: You've said it yourself, he wears converse a lot on House. The reason he looks marginally shorter than Epps at times is the fact that he's often in that kind of footwear that add virtually nothing to his height, while Epps always wears sneakers that give roughly a 3 cm boost.

179 cm is a good shout.
cole said on 11/May/14
Looking at some photos, he seems to have the edge on 178 cm guys Kal Penn and Omar Epps when in simliar footwear. He also often looks 9-10 cm shorter than Hugh Lauire (the few times Hugh's actually standing tall), and about 4 cm shorter than 183 cm Robert Sean Leonard.

To me the flat 5'10 does seem a tad low. 179 cm, that'd be a strange height to claim if he was actually a bit shorter (let's say 176-177 cm as some of you are suggesting). Like, why not just say 180 cm, if he's lying in the first place?
Nah, he's likely a legit 179 cm guy. I think it's upgrade time.
afka9 said on 26/Feb/14
look like strong 5'10 inc
Balrog said on 6/Aug/13
Epps was taller than him by at least half inch. He could be just 5'9.5".
Lorne said on 6/Aug/13
I could see him measuring 5ft9.75 in the afternoon, but not less. And yes, Cole Robert Sean Leanord is actually a true 6ft, when standing straight. I used to think he might be a fraction under, but watching House lately he really is a big 6foot guy, He is taller than 5'10 listed Ann Dudek, IN HEELS! And he edged out Bale.
cole said on 18/Jul/13
Honestl you can't really tell if someone is 5'9 and some fractions or 5'10 and some fractions from proportions.. He's still 5'10-range in my eyes.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jul/13
Remember in Neighbours he was barely taller than Toadie who as you know isn't 5'10" either. I honestly think he'd be 5'9.5" or 177cm barefoot.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jul/13
Rob do you think he looks 5'9" range barefoot in those photos. I think 177cm would fit him well.
Editor Rob
I don't think 5ft 9 flat, but a weak 5ft 10? Maybe
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jul/13

Look at his proportions. That's a 5'9 range guy, 177cm I'd guess. No way is he 179 barefoot.
cole said on 1/Jul/13
Are you thinking about upgrading him, Rob? I really think he should at least get 5'10.25.
cole said on 24/Jun/13
Yeah, he might actually be the 179 he claims - Click Here
Peter Jacobson is a legit 168 cm man, he's 2 cm taller than Jennifer Morrison in one of those barefoot pics they did for a promotion of House MD. I honestly think you should upgrade him Rob. As you say he's in converse on the show, and still he's not all that much shorter than Omar Epps in sneakers. The reason Jesse might give a 5'9.5 impression is because he is in flat footwear on House, Kal Penn is also in converse a lot, and they seem pretty close, Omar Epps and Hugh Laurie allways wear sneakers.

Jesse also seems quite close in height with 180 Taylor Kinney...

Watching House I'd say he looks the same height or 1 cm shorter than whatever Omar Epps is, which is a good 178 cm imo. So 177-178 cm for Spencer.

Robert Sean Leonard is surprisingly tall. He's 5-6 cm shorter than Hugh Laurie, who's 188-189 cm, and 5 cm taller than Epps. I would not have guessed Robert as a true 6 footer, until I saw him next to Epps and Laurie anyways.
[Editor Rob: doesn't Jesse wear converse on the show at times, he's going to give up a bit of height compared to others in shoes]

Haven't really been paying much attention to their footwear, but Epps and Laurie does tend to wear sneakers, the same type even. And of it's like you say that Spencer is wearing converse, there is a chance he'd be the 179 he claims. I don't see why he'd claim 179 if he really was shorter (why not just say 180?) Maybe he measured 179 at some point and is really being honest, early on in the day perhaps?

177/5f9.5. Don't see him as full 5f10. Maybe in the morning.
Dmeyer said on 17/Feb/13
5'9.5-9.75 is closer 177cm even counting footwear he looks a bit shorter than 178cm
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 14/Feb/13
5'9.5", 176-177cm.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/13
I'm trying to remember him in Neighbours, I think he just edged out Toadfish who is even a questionable 5'9". It is possible Jesse is 5'9.5" and is 179cm in shoes.
Balrog said on 10/Jan/13
He was surprisingly close in height with Odette Annable Yustman who is 5'8''-5'9'' range. 176-177 cms for the aussie.
bearlight said on 6/Jan/13
Has he had a nose job done to the tip of his nose? It looks different now than when he was in "P.D. James: Death in Holy Orders" in 2003. The tip of his nose certainly looks better more distinguished) now. I'm curious. Does anyone know? As far as his height goes, I was under the impression that he is 6 feet tall...
Hew said on 4/Jan/13
Weak 5'10, 177 cm.
Shaun said on 3/Oct/12
He did look 5'10"-5'11" in Neighbours I thought but sometimes I've seen him in pics and got a 5'9" er impression. I think 177cm could be nearer what he is.
Silent d said on 15/Jan/12
He is a little taller than odette anable who is 5 foot 8. Shorter than epps, so 176cm is right on.
Mathew said on 23/Dec/11
I remember seeing him listed at 6'0" somewhere a few years back, which he obviously isn't. 5'10"-ish.
Shaun said on 1/Dec/11
177cm would be about right. barefoot.
Jacob said on 12/Jun/11
He really does not look the same height as Epps in House. He always looks marginally smaller than Epps, so i'm giving him an 5'9.5" estimate.
Shaun said on 17/May/11
He can look shortish next to some people.
JellO said on 3/Mar/11
5'9.75. On the nose.
Mathew said on 1/Jun/09
Didn't this guy claim 6'? He's about 5'10".
5'5 - 4Teen Girl said on 16/May/09
I belive he's almost right of his height, something between 5'10(178 cm) and 5'11(180 cm)...I would give him 5'11(180 cm),he doesn't have the same good posture of Ommar Epps+the heel of the Ommar's shoes being bigger than Jesse's, give him an advantage of approximately 1cm.He doesn't have a bad posture like Owen Wilson,(5'10/5'11),who's taller than looks like,but doesn't have a good one all the time like Ommar either.This half inche is perceivable just like the 1 inche difference of 6'0 Chris Pine and 6'1 Zachary Quinto in Star Trek 2009 movie.

In similar dress shoes, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, and Kal Penn do look very close in height:

i have seen jesse on house and in movies. he appears to me as a weak 5ft 10 guy. 5ft 10 max 5ft 9.5 evening height good looking guy
anonymous said on 22/Aug/08
sometimes on the show, he can look the same height as omar epps:

In the latter pic, you can see that his shoes look like they have less of a heel than epps.
dmeyer said on 17/Aug/08
this guy is nearer 177 like 5 ft 9.5 since he can look as mush as 1 in smaller than epps even considering footwear he is steel 1cm shorter
dmeyer said on 13/Aug/08
even if omar has a bit shoe advantage spencer is no more than the same height
anonymous said on 13/Apr/08
rob, if i may ask, why would you say he and omar are the same height? they are both listed here at 5`10, yet omar does look a hair taller.

Editor Rob
omar wears 1.1 inch shoes a lot...spencer sometimes wears 0.6 inch shoes on that show.
D-lurker said on 27/Dec/07
To sort of swing the topic of growth spurt a few more times. At high school, there were three shorties that i used to look down upon (5'4 range)..i was 5ft10 at high school..After a year of leaving i bumped into these 'shorties'..the shortest was 6ft3..the tallest was nigh on jaw dropped, the little buggers had grown up and gained deep voices..Luckily i had some dignity returned to me as i had my own spurt to 6 and a half feet in my 20s.

Jenny said on 20/Oct/07
179 or 178cm, big deal. I mean, who would notice a 1cm difference in real life? Plus he has great hair, which probably makes him 1 or 2cm taller. : )

125cm when he was 12? Wow. Judging by some photos of him and his family members together, his brother and uncle are much taller than him and his sister is about his height.His gene seems good so what happened in his childhood?
malvern said on 12/Oct/07
I went to the same primary school [Spring Rd.Malvern] & same high school [Scotch College] as Jesse.. As a kid he was umbelievably short & then he had a massive growth spurt around 16-17yrs [a la De Caprio]. Anyway i`m 177.5cm & Jesse looked exactly the same when i stood beside him so 177cm minimum or 178cm maximum sounds on the money!

BTW, when Jesse was 12yrs old he was around 125cm, so he grew more than 50cm in secondary school*@@*.
wasa said on 28/Jul/07
I think he's 177cm and Epps is a solid 178cm. Both are very close the 5'10 mark.
Franco said on 3/Jul/07
epps also looks taller because he got these squared shoulders level, Jesse's shoulders are bent downward also giving the impression of him being shortish.

i find it funny Jesse & Epps both being stated 5'10.5 its not realistic either.

Epps 179cm / Jesse 178cm
anonymous said on 2/Jun/07
my 5`11 friend insists that she went to school with him and she said that he was at least 5`10. i do watch the show regularly, and he does look about a hair shorter than foreman. i may be not remembering correctly, but epps usually wears dress shoes, and his tend to be more casual. also, i think epps has slightly better posture.
Franco said on 13/Feb/07
Jesse Spencer's height is 5 ft 9.75 in (177 cm)

FANTASTIC job guys, keep up the good work.
Thomas said on 25/Dec/06
Well Omar Epps is 5'10. Jesse looks a tiny lil bit shorter. I think 5'9.75 is perfectly right
A-Bomb said on 3/Mar/06
I'm going for 5'9" for Jesse. I think he wears slightly more built up heels than the average.
