How tall is Joe Flanigan

Joe Flanigan's Height

5ft 11 ½ (181.6 cm)

American actor, best known for playing Major/Lt. Colonel John Sheppard in Stargate: Atlantis. He has said 6ft as his height at conventions before. In the double shot I was wearing Converse thin, whilst Joe had a fraction more thicker trail shoe.

Looks 5'11.5 in the top pic. Everyone saying he's shorter are being fooled by his posture in the last 2 pics.
I'd say the listing is spot on.
Benjamin Grott said on 27/Jan/19
I got a shock when I saw Googles listing. There is no way he is taller than me... He seems like a lightweight or a welterweight. 5'9" to 5'11" tops. 165lbs to 175lbs

The 6ft2 Google height listing is ludicrous!
Nik said on 21/Mar/18
He is about 5'11" - 5'11.25"!
Bobby said on 20/Mar/18
Yeah, he's looking 6ft in the top photo, but more 5'10.5 in the bottom photo. Maybe, he's just a legit 5'11 guy, like a flat 5'11.
Adnan said on 14/Feb/18
180 cmor 5'11"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Nov/17
I can see a strong 5ft11. He looks nearer 6ft in the older photo though
berta said on 18/Oct/17
classic 181 cm guy is my opinion still
Pierre said on 4/Oct/17
By the first pic 5"11.5' seem to be good by the second 5"10.75'max,he seem to look a little tired in the second then probably not in his best posture
Matthew Robinson said on 18/Aug/17
Looks taller in the top photo than in the bottom one.
F97 said on 6/Aug/17
Rob do you Think that he is more of a weak or a strong 182 cm guy? Also how would I look like next to joe?
Editor Rob: wouldn't say strong, but there's a strong chance he is 181 range too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/17
Rob, what are the chances of 5ft11 flat?
Editor Rob: not impossible
berta said on 15/Jun/17
i think this guy have avery low chanse of measuing 182 and 0% to be 183. to me he looks like a 181 guy even in stargate with big boots on that gibves him 3,5 cm in height he only looks like a 182 guy at best. Time for a 181 listing maybe`?
Editor Rob: wouldn't rule out 181.
F97 said on 25/May/17
Rob who looked taller to you Joe flanigan or Ben Browder?
Editor Rob: Browder I think looks taller in person...
World Citizen said on 25/May/17
On the picture above he looks exactly almost 6 ft as listed, but on the picture beneath he looks 5 ft 9.75 but that's because his loose posture and possibly camera advantage.
growtallerguru said on 4/May/17
what were the posture and shoe differences from Joe from the first to second pic? He looks 6 foot in the top pic of you guys Rob but barely 5'11" in the bottom pic, and thats me counting you at 5'8.5" Rob
Thanks
Editor Rob: actually in that bottom photo he had a kind of hiking style footwear, but I think it was still a bit under an inch...but I was actually in Thin version of Converse so he had a slight edge, but not much really. I believe quite similar inch range in top shot.

All you need is to be 1-2 inches further away and have the camera sligthly on one side to get some extra height.
shiva 181 cms said on 19/Apr/17
Looks 182 in first pic and 179 in other He's 180-181 tops
Paleman said on 24/Mar/17
Woah! Google has him at a ridiculous 6'2!
Willes188 said on 8/Mar/17
Rob, check googles official listing on this guy...
Editor Rob:
there's nothing official about google 😆
Willes188 said on 7/Mar/17
He got dwarfed by Jason Momoa in Stargate Atlantis
berta said on 21/Feb/17
i thinkhe only is a littel over 180 never looks tall and if he would be 182 he would look almost tall on tv
Balrog said on 2/Feb/17
Basing on the bottom pic, I'd say a flat 5'11''
berta said on 14/Dec/16
looking at the guys proportions and after seen stargate many times i think he is more in the 181 range. could be 180.but i dont know about 1827
180 25%
181 60%
182 15% looks 182 i the top pic but it looks like the way they standing and angle gives him 1 cm advantage
Sarah said on 6/Nov/16
His hair makes him look taller, but I'd buy 5'11.5" or so. Good character on stargate too.
Brandon said on 18/Oct/16
6'0" in top
5'10" in bottom
I'll vote right in the middle.
Sam said on 10/Oct/16
Solid 6'0 in the top photo, and around 5'10 in the bottom. Funny how the camera can do that. In person, I'm guessing he looks closer height-wise to the top photo than bottom based on Rob's listing of 5'11.5.
Alex said on 23/Apr/16
Perfect example of what camera angle advantage can do between the 1st and 2nd pics. He has camera angle advantage in the 1st pic and Rob and Jenny have camera angle advantage in 2nd. Does look like he's lost a bit of height though, looked near "6'0" at first.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/16
Someone in 06' insisted he was 6ft2!
Fez said on 16/Apr/16
[Editor Rob: wouldn't have thought much over 9.5 inch range. I belive having a healthy dose of hair adds to head size.]

True, but y does his head look soo Huge?

I know its his hairstyle, but it just seems huge for some reason?
Paul said on 14/Jan/16
Rob, in the bottom pic, why does he look way shorter than his listing? Is it due to him wearing thin soles?, Because he isn't hunching down or anything like that.
Editor Rob: no, if anything he had a little more than me.
mr.rashid said on 19/Nov/15
@Editor Rob, what would u say his head size is?
his head does look sometimes long so im guessing it's around 9.5-75 inch range, which is pretty normal 4 a near 6ft man. Do u agree?
Editor Rob: wouldn't have thought much over 9.5 inch range. I belive having a healthy dose of hair adds to head size.

I thought he could be an inch taller than myself when upright.

He looks 6'0" on the nose in the top photo.In the bottom he looks like he is 5'10.5".

Yes, Joe Flanigan is a legit 182 cm / 5ft 11.5in
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 20/Jan/15
I can see him at 180cms with rob.
miko said on 19/Nov/14
Danimal thinks everybody loses about 5 inches by 50, in the case of wrestlers, Hogan has lost a whole foot, 6'6 down to 5'6. This guy is 47 so must have lost at least 2 inches.....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/14
At 47, Danimal? I highly doubt it. He probably just had bigger shoes in 2006 and fooled many into thinking he was near 6ft. He was originally down here at 5ft11¾

"Joe Flanigan's height is 5ft 11¼in (181cm)"
Danimal said on 17/Nov/14
Looks to have lost some height from 2006 to 2010 and you Rob definitely lost weight since 2010.
Danimal said on 17/Nov/14
Looks a bit like David Duchovny.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/14
Near 6ft in the older picture. Barely 5ft11 in the new one, probably a little less.

5ft11 flat, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he can look 5ft 11-11.5 range more than 11.5-6 range.]
Realist said on 29/Jul/14
Lower pic he looks like 5'10.5, but in the upper one a strong 5'11.5.
robert said on 28/Jul/14
he looked tall in stargate atlantis like 6ft1 did he wear lifts in atlantis
anonymous said on 10/Jun/14
rob, what about his shoes? in the top pic he look between 5'11.5 and 6' but in the lower he looks no more than a strong 5'11...
[Editor Rob: he had a little more in the double]
Alex 6'0 said on 3/May/14
Looks 6'0 in top photo and like 5'10 in bottom photo.
averagegiant said on 30/Aug/13
what's the more accurate photo? he looks well above 5'11.5 in the top picture and well below 5'11.5 in the bottom. If you take the average of the 2 photos you would get 5'11.5 but I don't think that's the goal.
[Editor Rob: in the top picture he is nearer the camera, in the bottom there's really not much difference. He was about the same height that weekend as a 5ft 11-11.25 friend]
Lorne said on 22/Aug/13
This is interesting, cuz in the top pic, he is closer to the camera, making him look 6ft, while in the bottom, Rob and Jenny are a bit closer, and he doesn't look more than 179cm. Shows how distance from the camera affects things.
Balrog said on 10/Aug/13
Rob why is he looking 6'0'' in the top pic and 5'10" range in the botton pic?
[Editor Rob: I'm a little further away in the single shot.]
Len said on 3/Aug/13
He looks more like 5'10" on Stargate Atlantis. You have to ignore the spiked-up hair.
Yitzhak (181 morning-179 late afternoon) said on 23/Jul/13
How on earth does he look a full 1.5 inches taller in the first picture than in the second?
Elijah said on 21/Jul/13
No he's not, he was 6' in shoes. So about 5'11".
Bakura said on 20/Jul/13
@Elijah: Actually, Drake is 6'1"
lelman said on 13/Jun/13
In the top pic he looks over 6'
Elijah said on 6/May/13
Nathan Drake is 5'11". So yes Flanigan's height is good for the film but with camera angles and stuff pretty much anyone could play him.

For some reason I think that Cibrian resembles Uncharted 2 Drake more and Flanigan resembles Uncharted 3 Drake more...
SolidSnake said on 18/Apr/13
Eddie Cibrian best fit for Nathan Drake imo
Elijah said on 15/Apr/13
Nathan Fillion looks nothing like Nathan Drake, Flanigan looks much more like him than Nathan does. It's just the fanboys that promote him so much. I agree that Eddie Cibrian looks a lot like him though.

And yeah Fillion looks too old lol... Flanigan is actually older but looks younger. Fillion is too wrinkly yeah

And about the teens thing, it's because a lot/most late teens look the same as early to mid 20s so actors that age they don't need any "work" done and can believably portray them. But the bottom line is that Fillion looks too aged.
jimmy said on 13/Apr/13
johno says on 23/Oct/11
This guy looked about 2.5 inches shorter then the guy who plays Conan: The barbarian, currently

I think Jason looks 4" taller without standing at his tallest.

SolidSnake said on 5/Apr/13
FA they make people look younger all the time in movies lol. 21-25yr old actors playing teens for example, eg Superbad
SolidSnake said on 30/Mar/13
@Elijah, not as much resemblance as Nathan Fillion or Eddie Cibrian
Elijah said on 26/Mar/13
Unrelated to height but this guy bears a pretty strong resemblance to Uncharted's Nathan Drake IMO. Would be a great choice for the film.
MOF said on 26/Mar/13
He's 5'11" max. Comparing him with numerous fellow actors from Stargate Atlantis through 5 seasons, it's clear he is 178-180cm. Whatever his height is, he's in no way taller than 5'11".
Elijah said on 30/Dec/12
I'd say that this height is accurate in the first picture... he looks more or less 6' tall. But I'm not seeing anything above about 5'10" in the bottom one. What the hell happened there?
random said on 11/Nov/12
What odd photos. In the above one he looks about 6´1" while in the lower one perhaps a weak 5´11". A rather striking difference I´d say.
Mimi932 said on 2/Nov/12
I just finished watching Six Bullets and he played opposite the Van Dame's and Anna Louise Plowman who is listed at 5'11, he looked to be slightly taller than she. Considerably taller than the 5'9.5 JCVD, but a tad shorter than RVD. I'd say 6 to be about right.
Jack said on 26/Oct/12
1.86? He really doesn't look over 6 ft in above pic...
[Editor Rob: This guy is 186cm...flanigan isn't even even close in person to a guy like that.

I remember somebody else on here who met him insisted he was 6ft 2...the guy only claims 6ft. I saw Joe and David Tennant (who claims 6ft 1 and at least is pretty close to it) talking to each other at a show a while ago and he really did look no more than 5ft 11.5, certainly he always wears spiky hair which gives him a bit of a taler look.]
Anonamous said on 21/Oct/12
i think overall hes 6ft bcuz he looks 1.86m(above picture) and 1.79m(down picture)
ZealousNorth said on 6/Oct/12
Looks close to, but not, 6 feet.
C10TIm said on 3/Sep/12
Definitely cheating with lifts tall hair and posture in the top pic
Len said on 19/Aug/12
Looks like a 5'10.5" guy using moussed-up hair and lifts to cheat. And Rob's falling for it a little bit.

On the show (which I watch a lot), he definitely does not look tall.
Hob said on 27/Jul/12
No on top pic he looked 5'11 despite he had higher hair advantage on rob. lower pic with jenny, rob he look 5'9.25
Chris said on 7/Feb/12
Looks 6' in the top pic and 5'10.5 in the second. 5'11.25 is my guess. Weak tall range.
ChiasmataX said on 3/Jan/12
Without lifts or the shoes he wore in the top picture, this guy is nowhere near 182cm. He's 178.5-179cm barefoot. His hair add a few inches to his height.
Shortish86 said on 9/Nov/11
He's listed as 188cm, I thought he was near that tall, but its becuase of his hair as well as build. 182 is right.
Physics Enemy said on 7/Nov/11
5' 10.5" guy wearing lifts in the top pic. Hey Joe, Stallone called, he wants his lifts back!
johno said on 23/Oct/11
johno says on 19/Oct/11
Camera angles can't explain the difference...

[Editor Rob: I saw Joe again a few weeks back...notably he was walking with David Tennant and was at least an inch smaller, but not as much as 2 inches smaller than Tennant...]

_________________________________________________________________

The Dr. is listed at 6'1, somewhere between 1 and 2 inches would be 5'11.5; however, in that second picture, his eyeline seems to be 1.5 inches above yours. Your head seems lengthier then his rob. I would believe that Joe looks a weak 5'10 there. I cnt see how he could be losing that much height, unless he had a footwear disadvantage. Maybe with his arms spread, he might of lost some height. I'm willing to accept that he looks 5'10.5 in that second picture and that would be very to him. In the first picture, he looks anywhere from 6'0.5 to slightly above, impressive gain. About a standard 2 inch gain on standard, regular footwear.

To me, the Dr. always seemed similar in height to jonathon ross. If was between 1 to 2 inches shorter then the Dr. I would put the Dr at a very strong 6'0, as i personaly believe to be ross at. But thats obviously just my opinion.

Tennant is listed at 6'1, however evidence aside, if i were a betting man and just using usual habbit of celebrities exaggerations. Without seeing tennant and reading just 6'1 listed height, if i were to give a real height; i would say 6'1 might be a tad exaggeration as trends go but nowhere near the typical 2 inch+ exaggeration hollywood gives.

Joe 5'10.5
Ross 6'0 - 6'0.5
Tennant/Time lord 6'0 - 6'0.5
[Editor Rob: I've met Tennant, I think he's near what he claims]

johno said on 19/Oct/11
Wow, now thats massive height differential. An example of how celebs can sex up thier heights, even in photos. If we went purely by the photo, then yeh 6'1 would have been a good figure but judging by the second, not a chance
r3v001 said on 9/Aug/11
was about to say strong 6'1 until I scrolled down and saw the second pic, clearly he was pumping himself with some footwear help in the first photo! Im guessing you didnt get a look at his footwear as you made no comment on his advantage in the first photo?
John said on 6/Aug/11

Novak Djokovic lol.
Yo said on 7/Jul/11
First time you met him in 2006; do you remember if he had an heel advantage?
I don't think he shrunk cos he is only 44 and he must be a good 6footer as Shanks or Ackles.
[Editor Rob: no, I had that day similar heel, between 1-1.1.

maybe I'm not standing as well/camera advantage in the 2006 photo.]
Legend said on 28/Jun/11
Looks like he could even be 5'10.5 in the lower pic.
Yo said on 25/Jun/11
You've downgraded Joe's height Rob. from 5ft11.75 to 5ft11.5; then you think that he is 182cm max?
[Editor Rob: the last times I saw him he really looked like he was nearer 5ft 11 than 6ft]
Dmeyer said on 17/Jun/11
181 182 first pics second 179 do you list Jim too High
[Editor Rob: funny thing is, he and robert patrick were in pilot I think of stargate atlantis and pretty much were similar.

he can definitely look 5ft 11 last time I seen him.]

In the 2006 picture he does look almost 6ft(182-183cm). But in the more recent pic he struggles to reach 5ft11(180cm).
tim said on 29/May/11
there is diffrence between up and down photos. i agree. on the 2006 picture he has to wear lifts.

In the top pic he looks 6ft0 and in the bottom pic he looks 5ft10, y such a difference, his footwear should have been noted, he might b a lift wearer on occasions

Comparing the eyelevel he actually does look 2" shorter in the second pic!
krazy krippled! said on 1/Jan/11
Maybe Joe shrinked an inch in 4 years, and also didn't sleep well so he looked like 5'10 in 2010 when he looked a safe 6' in 2006. It's all really possible.
Yo said on 27/Dec/10
Good comment DV8! I agree with you; Joe is definetly not a tall guy: 5ft11.25 max to me. In SG-A; he seems to be 6ft cos his cast-mates are around 5ft8-9 then, he used to wear big shoes. The first pic wit Rob is wrong cos Rob has a bad posture. Somehow, the second reveals Joe's real height.
DV8 said on 26/Dec/10
Joe is a solid 5'11 with shoes on. Saw him last year wearing a shoes with about 1/2 inch sole and I'm 6' even and I was wearing 0.25 inch thick flip flops and still taller than him standing next to him and he has a good posture and was astanding straight. He was with david hewlett and I david was wearing nike sneakers with about 1 inch sole. I would give david 5'9 with shoes. I paid very much attention to their height.
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/10
whi in one pic he looks 180 and the other 182
Yo said on 6/Dec/10
There is a problem: in the first pic;Joe seems to be 6.05ft(184cm) and in the second; he must be a weak 5ft11. Whereas, in SGA; he clearly towers hewlett which is around 5ft9.25!! Rob, do you think he is the same height as michael shanks or jensen ackles which are classic 6footers or smaller?

[Editor Rob: all I know is that if someone has sticking up hair half of people seem seem to get fooled by it and include some of the hair in how tall they think a celebrity appears :)

joe is somewhere between 5ft 11 and 11.75 I would bet or 6ft and 6ft 1 if hair is counted!]

Mathew said on 7/Jun/09
looks 6' easy. could just be good posture, though.
rob89 said on 5/Jun/09
Looks more like 5'11 to me actually in rob's pic. His hairstyle might give the illusion of 6'-6'1 to some, but no way is he that tall without all that hair barefoot. It looks like Joe is standing straighter than rob as well, AND he's closer to the camera. I can't help but chuckle a bit when people seriously think he looks 6'1 here.
Alex5 said on 24/Apr/09
He looks 6'1" O_O

After all, maybe only 6 ft but not less ;-)

6'0 looks right.

probably taller than 182cm.

Looks 184cm next to 173cm Rob. What footwear was he wearing? Looks like young Pearce Brosnon.

I love Atlantis and watch the show regularly and I'm pretty sure he's at least 6 ft and maybe more like 6 ft 1 !

Rob is right, his hairstyle adds about 1.5 inches to his height this guy is a weak 6 ft = 182 cm

They got this dude listed as 6'2 on hollywoodupclose.com
It's crazy. I'd give him 6 feet for sure. But no way in hell 6'2.
Anonymous said on 1/Aug/08
Rob, I will have to agree with the majority here. We cant make claims like 5'11 and 3/4 unless you have actually measured the guy with a tape measure.
Until then, he looks like a legit 6 footer.
Chris said on 5/Jul/08
Rob if you are 5ft8 you can be sure he is 6ft.He even looks 6ft1.You come up to his eyes and thats like 4 inches

if joe want to say he's 6ft god people let him say he's 6ft im 4'11".75 my teacher says im so close he puts me down as 5ft leave him alone good lord just leave him be

First time I have ever heard of 5'11".75. Please people, don't deny him his wish, just let him be 6'.

I just walked by him on the streets of Vancouver, and I was at least a good inch taller than him. I scrape 6'. I might say that he's a bit over 5'10".

Joe is definately an easy 6ft to 6'2". His feet hang off all beds in the show. How do you guys meet these people? It sounds like you see them all the time.

yeah i agree, glenn and rob sometimes have me doubting myself that i am 175 lol, but i agree rob and glenn can both look 5-9. there really isnt much difference, if you take a 5-9 guy with bad posture and a 5-8 guy with good posture and stand them side by side the 5-8 guy could potentially look taller. wierd lol

exactly james,and no smokes and mirrors.no lifts,low cut adidas.
glenn said on 12/Mar/08
i beg to differ.rob in reality is a hair taller than me,possibly,but in alot of pics people think i can look 5-9 as well.i know i do.
Jamal said on 11/Mar/08
rob even though you and glenn both list yourselves @ 5'8, you defiently look like your taller. No offense to glenn, not calling him a liar or anything. Maybe it's your stature, you look 5'9 atleast to me.

[Editor Rob: any actor I meet I'm basing off the knowledge I am exactly 5ft 8. No room for uncertainty.

If you start from knowing someone's exact height without question, know they are wearing 1-1.1 inch sneakers in vast majority of pics, the floor is flat, take note of occasions where it's mentioned if the celeb is wearing more or less footwear, know that 95% of the time that person is trying to ensure heads same distance or his is slightly behind the celeb by 1 or 2 inches then you have a half decent base to go on.]

Easy 6 feet. I am a bit surprised at the 3/4" listing really.

[Editor Rob: scroll down to the comment I made about the scale. That's about as close to showing accurate height as you'd get on here.]

Looks 6ft to me.
Anonymous said on 29/Feb/08
I think the 6ft is his morning height, to me looks about 5ft 11.5 A good height for any actor!
Yaspaa said on 28/Feb/08
Torri does give the impression of height,your right,I just saw her on an episode of NCIS and she looks taller than 5'7. Quite surprised by that Rob,nice one.
Yaspaa said on 25/Feb/08
Good enough for me Rob. Do you reckon over 6ft in the mornings?

[Editor Rob: yes he'd clear that. I've got a lot of atlantis cast, the only shock is Torri Higginson who I swear looked an easy 5ft 8 on show with flanigan, but in person she was looking more 5ft 7!]
Anonymous said on 25/Feb/08
he looks 5'11ish, so 5'11.5 would be it, but 5'11.75 makes sense as well.
maximus said on 25/Feb/08
5"11'3/4...that sounds silly.....might as well be 6ft.

[Editor Rob: that's what all the 5ft 11.5-11.75 guys say - might as well be 6ft!]

Rob you really nailed an accurate listing for joe, This is what he looks like in comparison agaist Routh and another guy thats listed 6'3, but in the photo seems closer to 6'1-2. Routh(6'2.5) is a legit 6'2, so much so that he often seems taller. Routh is a guy who is 6'3 in the morning and 6'2 at night. Joe as you can se is inches shorter than routh.

[Editor Rob: Joe's got the biggest hairstyle, on first glance I think he'd look easy 6ft-6ft 0.5, but he didn't look it.

Routh/Joe are standing decent, Dorn is the looser of those 3. I still think Dorn peak is 6ft 3.]

Looks a weak 6'0".
AAAA said on 25/Feb/08
I thought 185 till I saw that scale, the hair kinda threw mw off
Markus said on 25/Feb/08
Looks a good 184 - 185 cm here

[Editor Rob: 4.5-4.75 inches, his eyelevel should be an inch higher then?

Maybe you should look at this scale showing he's far likelier to be Sub 6ft.]
miko said on 25/Feb/08
Looks around 6"0, so 5"11.75 is fair.
Yaspaa said on 4/Feb/08
Erin,this site doesn't deal with with what is quoted,it deals with what probably is.
Ronin (6'4") is easily more than 2" taller,try watching the show.
sw said on 25/Nov/07
He's 5 foot 11.75
Erin said on 19/Nov/07
Joe Flanigan is 6ft 2in. Its a fact, just check any site besides this one.
Elyse said on 12/Nov/07
David Hewlett is 5'10". Joe Flanigan is 6' (or the 5'11.75") as someone asked him at a convention how tall he was and that's what he said.
Dana said on 30/Oct/07
I'm sorry, this is wrong - he's 6'2" - I KNOW, cos I stood next to him at Melbourne Armageddon (I'm 5'8") and top of my head was just up to his earlobe - he's exact height of an ex-bf who was six-two.

[Editor Rob: if you include his hairstyle you can call him 6ft 2 if you want.

Atlantis is one of a number of shows I really want to meet as many of the cast as I can, similarly with 24, Lost, Heroes, Eureka, Firefly, all Trek etc. I like Joe, I felt sorry for him at one con where they shoved him near a DDR machine and you could barely hear yourself speak, but I've seen him a few times like yourself and would disagree with 188cm :)]

In one episode of SG Atlantis he plays side by side with Colm Meaney who is an honest 5'11. Why does Flannigan look to be of the same height? Hmmm....Big Dave you seem to be right with your first estimate of 5'11!

[Editor Rob: hmm, Flanigan looked taller than Meaney in latter episode where he dies, meaney character that is. I'll trust what I see, you trust what you see :)]
Luke said on 12/Jul/07
David Hewlett is 5'11 and Joe is atleast 3 inches taller so he must be 6'2
Hester said on 13/Apr/07
5'11" is a sexy height.
Dan said on 28/Mar/07
He does look tall when Ronan is not around. Probably the tallest one there.
He is probably 6' in the morning, so 5'11 and a half, or three-quarters seems reasonable.
Big Dave said on 15/Jan/07
This guy looks about 6'0 flat. I'm not sure why he is described as 5'11.75 here. He is clearly 2 inches taller than David Hewlett in Stargate Atlantis and about 4 inches shorter than 6'4 Jason Momoa (Ronan in SG Atlantis)
Marishal said on 3/Oct/06
When I first starting watching Atlantis I thought Joe and Torri, and other actors from the show were basically the same height, but after watching pictures (where I could see their feet) it seems to me Joe may seem shorter but he isn't. I really think he is taller than 1.83cm.
Maybe I am not very good at guessing his height but in this picture,
Click Here
we can see all their feet and well, Torri and Rachel are like a complete step shorter than him!
Not sure if they use "steps" things to film Atlantis but I can't see the height difference from the picutre in the actual show.
andy said on 25/Jan/06
guys... when he is next to Ronon wich is 1.95 m (6ft 4"- 6 ft 5") he is clearly only maximum 5-7 cm shorter...
another example would be when he is standing next to dr . Weir... my ex-girlfriend is 1.70m , and Weir (film name) is ranked at 1.75m... now... he looks very 1.88m to me... i am 1.87-1.88 (6ft 1.5") and i know how it's at that height

[Editor Rob: the funny thing he can look taller, yet with robert patrick looked similar...]
Big Dave said on 13/Jan/06
I watch Stargate Atlantis every week and I wouldn't say that he was that tall. I think that he is more like 5'11 (180cm)
tchakaman said on 5/Sep/05
This is another of those Hollywood-jokes. In the TV show Stargate Atlantis Flanigan plays side by side with Colm Meaney (ep:S1x08) who is listed at 5ft11 even on imdb and who in all his appearances looks some honest 5ft11. Flanigan is of the same height as Meaney during the whole episode!?! Those Hollywood height infos are getting more and more absurd...
