How tall is Jodi Lyn O'Keefe

Jodi Lyn O'Keefe's Height

5ft 8.5in (174 cm)

American Actress best known for roles in tv shows Nash bridges and Prison Break. She once said "I got too tall too fast. I was 5ft one day and 5ft 9 the next". I heard her say "5 foot 10" as her height to another 5ft 10.5 girl who was in front of me, and she's also said "almost 5 feet 10 inches. In this photo (by Daniel Schweitzer/ Starfury Conventions) I was wearing 0.75 inch sneakers, Jodi had roughly 2 inches more footwear over me.

Yeah, that makes sense, she looks like someone who slouches to look smaller.
Slim said on 11/Sep/17
Rob, she's taller than Sarah Wayne callies, does this mean a quarter inch to Jodie or a quarter inch away from Sarah?
Editor Rob: they are very close and may well measure within a small fraction... I would have said Sarah had a better posture in TV and in person than Jodi.

The most beautiful woman i've ever seen...trully beautiful...rob i have a mentioning heights,is their height in centimeter or inch???for example in past you wrote someone's height as 6feet1inch and 185cm....but recently you've changed all of them... and you have written that height 6feet1inch and 185.4 so which one is right??
Editor Rob: for 12.5 years I rounded the equivalent metric (centimetres) value to the closest whole cm.

So if you had 6ft 1, which is 185.42cm, the closest full cm is 185.

But now, I am just showing to 1 decimal place.

The A-Z and the 'Compare Heights' pages are still being rounded to closest cm though.

Rob, are you sure she's a big 174 woman? I wouldn't have guessed her much over 5'8 on PB, to be fair.
I mean, there are some scenes where she wears quite big heels and still doesn't look much taller than Robert Knepper. I agree that Sarah is probably a bit taller than her, not that much but still a bit taller.
What's the lowest you'd argue? Do you think at worst she would be as tall as you or say the 173 girl from the HC?
I know you mentioned she has bad posture at times in person (I wouldn't have said so on the show) but she looks 177 in the top picture and actually no taller than you in the bottom one, without considering the noticeable footwear advantage of course. How likely is under 5'8?
Her 5'9 claim certainly seems too much, let alone the 5'10 one!
Editor Rob: I suppose a chance of 5ft 8 flat, would be interesting to measure her or have seen her in flat shoes!

Same height as Robert knepper in prison break.
Either she deserves a 5" 8.75 upgrade or Robert knepper deserves a 5" 8.5 downgrade.
berta said on 10/Apr/17
i think she could be 175. and 174 on bad days. osmewhere in that ragne. 173 is sto short and her 178 claim is just funny
Charizard said on 20/Jul/16
Correct listing but 2-3 inch heels clearly seen on prison break one bodyguard in season 2 in khaki pants is 5'8 and she made him look short with heels when they would of been same height. She would be 5'11-5'11.75 for sure in prison break with them thick ass heels... She even towered/on the spot with her taller bodyguards on the show.
Enes said on 2/Feb/16
Looks shorter than sarah callies in prison break the final break

Such a lady, really good height
Hector said on 1/Sep/15
Solid 5'9 I would say.
Allie said on 23/Aug/15
Rampage, you should ask Taylor Swift whose a solid 5'9, why she has claimed 5'11.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/15
I'd expect s lower claim. Tall women tend to round down.
Tunman said on 1/Jul/15
I'm always shocked to see that even big girls need to lie.Is 173-4 not enough tall for a girl nowadays?
I could understand the 5'9 claim,just rounding up or measuring close to it in the morning but 5'10 is laughable.
Danimal said on 29/Mar/15
Close to 5'9" barefoot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/14
No way is she under 5ft8
176,2Tunman said on 18/Aug/14
5'8-8.25" for her and 5'8.5" for Sarah is perfect.
Oh,Rob I envy you especially for this one,definitely her beauty is hypnotizing you agree?Man,I would marry her immediately.
Alex 6'0 said on 15/Aug/14
Minus the 2 inches footwear advantage it looks like Rob would edge her out slightly or they'd be the same height. I give her a solid 5'8 to 5'8.25
Greg said on 3/Aug/14
Great bone structure - sorry, that wasn't a comment on her height :)
Anton said on 24/Apr/14
Rob, where was the "I got too tall too fast. I was 5ft one day and 5ft 9 the next" quote from?
[Editor Rob: didn't save the publication at the time.]
J.Lee said on 16/Mar/14
Rob isn't it amazing how she is 1.5 inches from 5 ft 10 but still gets confused with it?
[Editor Rob: could have measured near it in footwear? Or rounded up after measuring...or lied...or met G who told her with a straight face he was 5ft 8 and then she thought 'bloody great I'm 100% 5ft 10 then']
J.Lee said on 13/Feb/14
Rob, why do u think she said 5 ft 10
[Editor Rob: maybe measured in sneakers near it?]
Mike Stone said on 25/Sep/13
Probably one of the most beautiful woman of all time. I don't
care about her height.
Jack said on 30/Aug/13
What an amazingly attractive lady and a nice statuesque beauty. Compared to the first pic where she is standing relatively straight, in the second pic she seems to be slouching and tilting her head downwards so as to not appear taller than Rob
Pat said on 22/Jul/13
she is fine and tall, nuff said
lelman said on 13/May/13
She was always looked the same height as T-Bag and the 'shorter' guys on Prison Break - so I think it's listed correctly.
Dmeyer said on 7/Mar/13
If she looked 5'10 minus 2 in more shoes give her 5'8 she does Look shorter than 5'9-9.25 sheen and shorter than 175cm sarah Wayne callies
Dmeyer said on 6/Mar/13
In eveything work she done , she looks 5'8-8.25 , did she Look 5'9 to you rob
[Editor Rob: she looked near 5ft 10 to me (not looking at footwear), of course then take the advantage away. She has bad posture a lot of time I saw her.]
Jack said on 26/Jan/13
I think she is 5'8'5"(174 cm)
mike 181cm said on 16/Dec/12
Rob how tall does the kid to the left claim 5"5?
[Editor Rob: I don't know what he claims]
Arch Stanton said on 4/Dec/12
She reminds me of the chick Fairuza Balk from Sandler's The Waterboy. Girl with black hair, blue/green eyes and leather jacket always look badass.
LG69 said on 11/Nov/12
meant to say "not so easy to figure out."
LG69 said on 11/Nov/12
She has a 2" footwear advantage over Rob, and she looks about 2" taller in the top photo. In the bottom photo, her head is more tilted, so it's as easy to figure out. Anyway, considering her footwear advantage, I'd say she is 5'8" barefoot.
Josh B said on 22/Sep/12
Rob, who's the guy in the lower photo?
[Editor Rob: marshall allman from prison break aswell]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jul/12
slightly shorter than legit 5ft9 Robert Knepper.
173-174cm is closer.
Ras said on 22/Jan/12
Going by the second pic I'f say she's shorter than you Rob, it looks fishy. I'd still give her 174cm/5'8.5".

She is tall and beautiful
the shredder said on 14/Dec/11
I dated a girl that looked just like her !
ANDREA[ITA] said on 10/Dec/11
not over 5'8!
Physics Enemy said on 22/Nov/11
ChiasmataX - I think I made a mistake. She's 5' 9.5" in footwear according to Matt's pic. Her footwear is 2.75", giving 5' 6.75". Add 1" for lean and that's 5' 7.75". So yes, she's under 5' 8".
Physics Enemy said on 22/Nov/11
You can shave, dye your hair and get a cool haircut. What's the problem Shaun?
ChiasmataX said on 22/Nov/11
@Physic Enemy no man you can't add height of people in shoes like that. Normal shoes don't add much height like they are advertised (normal shoes usually add 1-1.5cm at most, if you want to add 2cm you need lifts or elevator shoes or nike air max.) Just wear your own shoes and measure yourself and you will see. With a 0.75 inch shoes here Rob is still about 174-174.5cm at most (not 175cm), which means with the 2 inch shoes advantage Jodi is about 171-172cm bare-feet at most not 175cm. Her big frame fool people into thinking she's 175cm. Not many women goes beyond 173cm BARE-FEET in height.

Shaun - You're tall, blonde, blue eyed and white? You have it made.

Yep, with a surfer goatee and hair like Gordon Ramsay/James Cracknell. I know, that's what everybody says when I say I wish I had dark hair and coloring.
Physics Enemy said on 9/Nov/11
Matt, stop trying to fool people with those line drawings using a 5' 8" Rob. He's 5' 8.25" on the stadiometer barefoot AND you keep forgetting Rob is a solid 5' 9" in FOOTWEAR, so your charts are always off by an inch.

By your chart + 1 inch, Jodi looks 5' 10.5". But she's clearly leaning. Add an inch for that and you get 5' 11.5". She's got 2.75" footwear according to Rob. So that makes her 5' 8.75". Close enough to her claim for us to trust 5' 9".

lorne said on 10/Oct/11
... Damn she is sexy. She certainly does have the proportions of a legit 5ft9 woman, but if she had close to a 2 inch footwear advantage, then she doesn't look much taller than you. I mean even if she straightened up, I don't see more than 2 inches... maybe 174cm is fairer???
Shaun said on 26/Sep/11
I have sky blue eyes Legend, I'll swap my Gordon Ramsay hair with your dark hair please!!
PB_fan said on 23/Aug/11
She looked way smaller than 185 Linc Burrows, 10 cm at least. so 175 cm fair enough
Legend said on 13/Aug/11

No. Why can't a guy care how he looks? LOL
Tex said on 8/Aug/11
If she was standing straight--she would be over 5'10".in this photo ..5'9" has got to go/// I think Rob may be losing his touch.....jk
5'8.56784 said on 26/Jul/11
Rob, do you think she could be a bit over 5'9, she definitely has the proportions of a big girl
[Editor Rob: I don't believe so.]
the shredder said on 23/Jul/11
Legend ... Your a female ?
Legend said on 22/Jul/11
She's 5'8.5 and I wish I had blue eyes with my dark hair. My eyes are hazel though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/11
175cm(5"8.75) I think
Observant said on 10/Apr/11
Lets be generous and give her 5'10 based on the height chart, thats still only 5'8 flat barefoot nothing more.
Legend said on 9/Jan/11
I will be honest, she's beautiful, and she's not over 5'8.5 barefoot.
somebody new said on 9/Jan/11
if she looks taller in this photo she's not 5'9. Maybe 5'8,5 at most. I always wondered why would a tall girl lie... to make herself even taller, lol
Matt said on 7/Dec/10
Rob, you do realise that by saying shes 5ft 9 that she 'appears' 5ft 11 in this photo (+2in footware) and its obvious she 'appears' no more than 5ft 9.5

i dont think she is anything over 5ft 8

i dont know maybe she was crouching severely here? doesnt seem like it

[Editor Rob: she said she was 5ft 10, she should have looked near 6 foot if she was]
sam said on 3/Oct/07
5'9" looks about right for her in her appearances with Dominic Purcell in Prison Break; she would look closer to his height if she was 5'10".
anonymous said on 26/Dec/06
Yes, I saw her often in San Francisco and she was about 5'9" (5'8" barefoot) with sneakers but she was only 16 years old. It is probable that she is a little more now that she is in her 20s. She was a sweet and nice person. I hope her celebrity status do not ruin her good nature.
Editor Rob said on 16/May/06
She also said in a Maximonline chat:
"Actually, I'm almost 5' 10'".
Cube432 said on 22/Mar/06
I use to search for her stats. When suggested, I've once read of her agreeing in an interview that she's "approximately" 5'10".
nj said on 18/Mar/06
Jodi Lynn is at least 5'9" and more likely an inch taller. Look at her next to James Spader when she was a recurring character on Boston Legal.
