He looks 6'3" range and probably 250 pounds next to De Niro in Cape Fear.

Another underrated scene stealer. I liked him best as the sadistic hitman Molly in 1973's CHARLEY VARRICK. In that film he looked to be a bit taller than 6'2" Walter Matthau. 6'2" is close, but I'll bet at peak that JDB was 6'2 1/2".

Even in recent work, he still has the height. I doubt if he's lost any.

6 ft 1 in (185 cm) flat today Rob?

[Editor Rob: I've not seen anything lately that I can remember how tall he appeared.]

Awesome actor. 6'2 seems right. But, yes, a lot heavier these days.

This guy rules. No problem buying the 6'2", but he's a lot more than 200-pound these days.
