Lol I was just going to make a comment about that. I think he's rounding up there and I highly doubt Joel has ever measured over 190 cm. I'd actually argue he's closer to 188 cm than 189 cm and the average guess is a bit silly
berta said on 3/Apr/23
Click Here in this swedish commmercial he claims 6´3.

He's got the face of a shorter person but I doubt he's under 5'9
Editor Rob
From a brief look, I could imagine him within the average range.
berta said on 21/Dec/22
its hard to guess who weight the most, it really depends on what year. Sometimes one guy have 15 procent bopdyfat then the other year 10 procent and the same with muscle mass. I think joel could have been the heaviest of them if we go by his body in the 2021 suicide squad. But they are all very close. Cavill have highest bodyfat so the others need maybe 5 pounds of more muscles to weight the same, just by going by bodyfat. I think joel at his heaviest really was up to almost 220 pounds. If i remember right he claimed 230 pounds ( that was a lie but 220 is possible) Cavill i guess is around 210 pounds most of the time. I havent seen lutz in anyhting for years but he have very low bodyfat, i guess sometimes down to 8 procent so he weight less than he looks because of the low bodyfat. I think he average around 205 pounds. He have claimed 220 pounds but i have never seen any evidence of that mutch weight. Jay courtney is maybe on average 11 procent bodyfat in his movies, i think he is right around 200 pounds most of the time, sometimes alittle more.
My guess Joel with his body 2021 heaviest
second place Cavill because of higher bodyfat
then Kellan lutz when he is at his bulkiest
Last Place Jai ( but the timkes he was at his biggest he was pretty mutch the same weight as cavill)
Beluga1 said on 3/Oct/22
Who weighs more Jai Courtney, Joel, Lutz or Cavill?

Joel is definetly the tallest.

Looks between 6'2 and 6'3

I know he is taller, I would not say two inches though, 1.5 inches max. Also, they are much burlier than he is.

Joel claimed to have gotten up to 230 lbs for The Suicide Squad. Here is the link: Click Here
Do you think he got that heavy? He seems rather slender, I have a hard time believing he weighed more than Lutz or Cavill.

You realise Joel is 2 inches taller than those other 2 guys right?

Probably a hair over 6'2. He looks between a weak 6'2 to 6'2.25. He remembers me to Johnny Knoxville
Vsquad said on 6/Aug/21
Just watched The Suicide Squad. Kinnaman edged out Idris Elba in their few scenes standing next to each other. There's also a pretty good shot of Kinnaman next to John Cena, and they both look exactly as listed.

Cena always holds up well with 6'2 - 6'3 guys.
Vsquad said on 30/Jul/21
After seeing photos of Joel with Alexander Skarsgaard, Common and his current girlfriend, I finally believe he's 6'2 as listed lol.

I thought he might be underlisted this whole time because he usually somehow ends up as the tallest dude in his movies. Kinda like Ryan Reynolds - I rarely, if ever see Reynolds next to other 6'3+ guys. He's always the tallest one among his cast members.
Halb said on 23/Jun/21
Joel looks taller than Idris in the new trailer.
johnnysidgursson said on 28/Jan/21
Jack Denmo´s twin! Joel is 188-189 range
winkler91 said on 17/Dec/20
I think he is my height twin. 189cm the first 3-6 hours but afternoon more 189,0 - 188,5 range.
Judging by afternoon height, the listing is very good.
berta said on 14/Apr/20
i think kinnaman looks in the 188-189 range but the thing is ryan reynolds was the taller one in safe house. i think ryan looked 1 cm taller. i guess they are same height in reality but ryan needs a small upgrade.
Lambo said on 19/Aug/19
Spotted this in the trailer for his upcoming movie The Informer. Gold dust for us celebheighter's!!

crayon said on 17/Jul/19
Kinnaman was easily an inch shorter than Reynolds in the movie safe house. No way, r they the same. Reynolds always looked about 6ft3 ; very long torso and face could give off a less towering look compared to another with smaller face and torso.
Nik said on 17/May/19
The average vote is jolly high!
TheBat said on 15/May/19

No way is Ryan 6'2.25" or taller on average, he's easily a flat 6'2" throughout the day.
Dream said on 10/May/19

What about here?

Click Here

Crews is still taller than Reynolds. (To be frank, Crews, surprisingly looks near 6'5" in this photo, I linked).
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/May/19
@Dream(5'9.5") 6'2.25" Terry Crew is closer to the camera, do check out the full frame picture and look carefully. Reynolds is no way shorter than him in opposite he is taller if there are better picture.
TheBat said on 8/May/19
6'2.25" is what I thought as well.
Joel Masterman said on 6/Mar/19
I think he is one of those guys who can pull of looking like 6"2 and even a bit taller like Ben Affleck.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/19
Junior, I’ve got no problem with those guesses except for Reynolds at 189.5cm with Kutcher brought down to 188.5cm. Really those two should be reversed. I struggle to see Reynolds staying at that mark at his low and edging out Kutcher...who to me gives a taller impression...Ryan and Joel were about the same in Safe House aswell...
berta said on 19/Dec/18
yeah people here in Sweden lie just at much as in America. The guy i personally know, who have lied the most was at the hospital with my brother and they both measured 191 at lunchtime, wich means that they are in the 190,5 range late afternoon and he still told me that he was 197 cm :P
Ben said on 14/Dec/18
@MAD SAM Lmaoo almost everyone here in Sweden inflates too.
heathe said on 3/Oct/18
I think 188-189 is right. Look at 27s point of the Hammarby video with Alex and Joel Click Here
Dream(5'9.5") said on 2/Oct/18

Ryan is closer to the frame, and Kinnaman’s eye level is clearer higher than Reynolds, not to mention Ryan has much thicker hair.

Click Here

Next thing I’ll be hearing is ‘Ryan is slouching’ while Terry Crews is doing the same thing and he’s still looking easily taller than Reynolds.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Sep/18
@Dream(5'9.5") I don't know how you see the gif but Reynolds look to be easily taller than Kinnaman.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 20/Sep/18
He did edge out Ryan Reynolds in this gif.

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Aug/18
@MAD SAM He may dig into lowest 6'2 1/4 and measure from the doctor in the morning a tap over 189cm. I feel that Kinnaman might be edging out Justin Hartley by small fraction.
MAD SAM said on 15/Jul/18
Comic Colonel Rick Flag is supposed to be 6’1” but he’s taller ; I think I wouldn’t doubt his height at 189 cm Swedish guys don’t lie their height
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/18
Joel Kinnaman 188.5cm
Ashton Kutcher 188.5cm
Adam Driver 189cm
Dax Shepard 189cm
Noel Emmerich 189cm
Brandon Routh 189cm
Will Arnett 189.5cm
Geoff Stults 189.5cm
Ryan Reynolds 189.5cm
Tom Welling 190cm
Tom Ellis 190cm

All in betweeners inside of 6'2 ~ 6'3 not under or not over.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/May/18
Kinnaman has to be 188.5cm at his low. I believe Ryan Reynolds and Will Arnett they're both arguable 6'2 5/8 (189.5cm) and Dax Shepard pass for a flat 189cm just fraction taller than Kinnaman.
Dejavu said on 29/Apr/18
He only looks an inch taller than Henry Cavill in the premiere photos. If people are arguing that Henry is under 6'0, he is only around 6'1 range.
joe### said on 19/Apr/18
Rob is right gustaf is 6´2.5-75
MrTBlack said on 9/Feb/18

Yeah that’s interesting because in Robocop 2k14, he was also listed as 6’1” and looks clearly taller than that as well!
lesander said on 9/Feb/18
I am 187 at night and gonna say he looks taller, like 189-190.
Junior said on 7/Jan/18
@Dejavu , 1/4 is possible. Reynolds look min 6'2.5" guy and Kinnaman more reliable 6'2.25" than Ben Affleck.
Ben said on 28/Oct/17
I also remember him being listed as 184 on his ID in a swedish movie. Reverse Glenn confirmed Rob?
Editor Rob
not really as he does have 189cm on his agency...some of these movie/tv id's aren't always going to be accurate.
Dejavu said on 26/Sep/17
Liam Neeson with worse posture has an inch on him.
Dejavu said on 16/Sep/17
I failed to see how Ryan Reynolds is taller than Joel Kinnman.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 27/Aug/17
Edged out Ryan Reynolds
Junior said on 17/Aug/17
I don't see him look over an inch shorter than 6'3.5" Liam Neeson, Joel look alot like 0.75-1" lower than Neeson. 6'2.5" look a higher chance.
Ben said on 15/Aug/17
In Run All Run (2015) the radio described as 6'3". Looked close to Liam Neeson.

I'd give Joel 6'2.5" or just under.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/17
Can pass for 6ft3-4 on House of Cards.
S.J.H said on 24/Jun/17
He get upgrade and ryan reynolds stay 6'2? Just honest.. Sounds unfair
shiva 181 cms said on 14/Jun/17
Id have given 6'2 for him and 6'2.25 for reynolds
Borats Chicken said on 20/May/17
rob, good choice with him being 6'2.25 even with will smith i thought he was more then full..
Mark(5'9.25") said on 17/May/17
Perfect listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/17
Good shout...
Andrea said on 9/May/17
Well, this definitely puts Big Alexander nearer 6'5 than 6'4 :)
And it's funny that you still say, on Alex's page, that he might be 193 at his low! That's crazy!
He doesn't look under 194 with basically every celebrity on here and he certainly can't be just 4 cms taller than Joel because he does look noticeably bigger than him in photos, over 2 inches! ;)
berta said on 8/May/17
Great update rob this is perfect listing!!!
berta said on 5/May/17
rob what do you think about the pssibility that he is closer to 189? he always look in 188-189 range and most of the time its closer to 189 in my eyes. that is also the height it said here in sweden in 2 papers. I guess that is what he cliams
Editor Rob
I did have more chance to see Joel, and yeah I can agree a bit over 6ft 2 is more believable.
berta said on 10/Apr/17
this guy like ryan reynold need 1/4 upgrade. wel ryan should have 1/2. think of him and arnold do you guys think that arnold was 1 cm shorter than kinnaman at peak? more liked 3 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/17
I think he's around 188/189cm like Reynolds
Dejavu said on 29/Mar/17
Same height as Ryan reynolds.
S.J.H said on 16/Mar/17
Just telling the truth. I watch Run All Night notice Kinnaman only look about 1/2 inch shorter than liam neeson certainly not 1.5' maybe he had more heel than neeson but max 1' between them not even 1.25'
Ultimate said on 4/Mar/17
Looks 3-3.5 cm taller than strong 185 cm Will Smith in the film.
Mike said on 20/Feb/17
Looks the same height as Ryan.
Andrea said on 25/Jan/17
It's hard to tell from that clip how much difference there is between Ryan and Joel but I think Ryan looks more a genuine 6'2 than Joel...
6'2.25 seems impossible for Joel because Alex Skarsgard can look near 3 inches taller in some photos!!!
berta said on 24/Jan/17
well there is more than 1 cm beeetween him at smith. if he is 188 then will smith is 186. i think smith is 186,5 cm and joel is 188,5 cm. about 2 cm beetween them
S.J.H said on 21/Jan/17
A 186-187cm will smith look at least a full inch shorter than kinnaman. I wouldn't go under 6'2.25 at lowest and will smith could possibly be 6'1.25 nowadays
joe### said on 20/Jan/17
What is your country of origin?

You adept the metric system just like me
Lmeister said on 19/Jan/17
Joel Kinnaman is not a full 6ft2. As I said before He is shorter than his Johan Falk co-star Jens Hultén(189cm). 186-187cm for Joel. Btw google Jens Hultén and Tom Cruise :D
joe### said on 18/Jan/17
I did not look too much for the footwear though
S.J.H said on 17/Jan/17
@joe### said on 16/Jan/17

I'm sorry to say but you're pretty mess up. Ryan reynolds is still taller and joel kinnaman still closer to the camera other thing is we couldn't view their shoe. Just assuming it's the same heels and don't forget joel kinnaman came out with very first listing at 6'2.5 everywhere untill rob list him at 6'2 here. Eventually bringing a 189cm and 190cm guy up close hugging and talk will look like the same way like reynolds and kinnaman did in the clip
S.J.H said on 15/Jan/17
Look at top of ear ryan reynolds is taller. Kinnaman facing up and is closer to camera, thus a little odd angle

Mark said on 10/Jan/17
A strong 6ft2. 189 for me.
Dejavu said on 7/Jan/17
Could appear the same height or taller than Will Smith. I think he is a strong 6'2 probably similar range with Ben Affleck.
anon said on 29/Dec/16
188 or 189cm for me, solid 6ft2
Mark(5'9.25") said on 28/Dec/16
easily edges out Will Smith. However, I think this Guy would look similar to Adam Driver.
Thomas said on 12/Nov/16
I think hes taller than 6,2. In pictures he is taller than ben affleck and pretty close to jason mamoa(6,4) i would say 6,3 or taller.
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
Kinnaman is 6'2.25 and will smith 6'1.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/16
Looked 188-189cm zone w/h 186-187cm Will Smith
joe### said on 15/Oct/16
strong 6´2 with Vincent D'Onofrio
Dejavu said on 14/Oct/16
He looks to have a strong inch on Henry Cavill. I think he is a legit 6'2.
Dejavu said on 5/Aug/16
I thought he looked simiar to Will Smith and not any taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/16
No he's definitely a bit shorter than Liam. He could be a fraction over 6ft2 and Neeson just under 6ft4 (like 6ft3¾)
Andrea said on 1/Aug/16
But then you look at him with Alexander Skarsgard, who himself has claimed 193 (even if he's probably no less than 194), and you realize how crazy 193 is... :)
John said on 28/Jul/16
I think he is 193 cm.But he has a little hump in his back.He looks the same of tall than Liam Neeson.So he is probably 6'4
Berta said on 7/May/16
i think weak 189 is his height that he have been described in sweden all the time. Looks 4 cm taller than adewale and 2 cm taller than will smith. 6 foot 2 1/4 is a fair height for him. Looks like a 6 foot 2 dude that sometimes can pass for 6 fot 3 so probably is a little over 6 ´2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/16
187cm is too low. He looks too tall to be under 6ft2. I was watching a bit of the new season of House of Cards and he made Spacey look under 5ft9. He gives a taller impression than Corey Stoll (6ft1½-2) did. Honestly, he can appear like a 6ft3-4 guy. A very tall looking 6ft2 guy
Borats chicken said on 28/Feb/16
Rob, you think hes a strong 6'2?
Editor Rob
at times he can look that range, but other times just about 6ft 2
Nick22 said on 2/Jan/16
Joel Kinnaman probably claims 189 cm himself - but I agree with this listing. Actually 187-188 cm range is more likely than a 189 cm guy.
S.J.H said on 14/Nov/15
I think he could have been under listed here. Previous listing got him at 6'2.5 he looks it in the darkest hour and the killing
Andrea said on 4/Sep/15
Fluffi, i don't know about 6'1 flat but Alexander can certainly make him look 187 at most! So a 6'2 listing is not that bad, but he certainly isn't over 6'2...
samuel pinkerton said on 1/Sep/15
Philadelphia metro listed him as 6'1. Looks like a strong 6'2 to me :)
Fluffi Fluffsson said on 30/Aug/15
That Rampage Clover guy always seem to want all guys to be taller than they really are. Joel real does look shorter than 6'2. Or Alexander Skarsgård is tallar than 6'5. He looks barely 6'1 in the picture with Skarsgård. Might be weird angles etc. though...
joe @@ said on 22/Aug/15
6'2.25 looked next to Will Smith, 187 cm out of the question, Joel solid 6'2
joe said on 15/Aug/15
he seems to be 6'2 solids
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jul/15
Ron, have you seen Safe House?

I think he edged out Reynolds.
Editor Rob
yes but can't remember their scenes
Lmeister said on 20/Jul/15
I doubt that Joel is a full 6ft2. He is a few centimeters shorter than his Johan Falk(tv series)co-star Jens Hultén(189cm). I'd give Joel 186cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/15
Well, he looks 6ft2-6ft3 beside Neeson
berta said on 13/May/15
Im frrom sweden and Before he was big in usa you Always read ( haha not Always) but in a few papers in sweden that he is 189. And just about 6 month ago there was a interview with Gustaf Skarsgård were they described him "smal och 193 cm lång" in English that is " thin and 6 foot 4 tall" I dont Think he is that tall. But maybe he clams 193 ore they just thought he was that height
joe 193cm night said on 25/Apr/15
Rob,do you think this can Gustaf above the mark of 6'2.75 (190) or strong 190cmClick Here
Editor Rob
I believe the 190cm has come from Gustaf himself and that to me is what he typically looks, just about 6ft 3.
Sam said on 1/Apr/15
Yeah, he's at least 2 inches, probably more like 2.5 inches, under Alexander Skarsgard and was quite even with Ryan Reynolds in Safe House, the guy's no more than 6'2" even.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/15
If he's 6ft2 flat then Neeson struggles with 6ft3 which I doubt
Andrea said on 27/Mar/15
Don't know about Liam, but Alexander Skarsgard has near 3 inches over him! A 6'2.5-6'3 Joel Kinnaman would make Alexander 6'5 and over, which i doubt!
Moke said on 24/Mar/15
I also thought weak 6'3'' first due to his slim stature and relatively small head. But I now think he's more like 6'2''. Here with 6'4'' Alexander Skarsgard Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/15
Looking at pictures of his upcoming movie w/h Liam Neeson, Run All Night...dude looks barely shorter. Either Neeson is below 6ft3 today or this guy is 6ft2½-3 minimum
Andrea said on 8/Mar/15
If he's a full 6'2, Alexander is close to 6'5!
S.J.H said on 7/Mar/15
6'1.75 or 6'2. some site still list him at 6'2.5
Tommo said on 17/Feb/15
Looks absolutely gigantic on The Killing, surprised by seeing this, looks like he should be around 6'4! Shows you how friggin tall Skarsgard is.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Nov/14
Rob, which is more likely for Joel, a fraction under or over 6ft2?
Editor Rob
I'd stick the the 6ft 2 itself rather than above or below
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/14
Edged out Ryan Reynolds in Safe House...
Andrea said on 30/Sep/14
Welcome back, Rampage. I missed your "upgrading skills" so much :)
He actually could be 187, let alone 189! He can look 3 big inches shorter than 6'4-6'4.5 Alexander Skarsgard, so he's likely a weak 6'2!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
He can look 6ft3 on The Killing.

189cm, Rob?
LAnative said on 24/Jul/14
Watching The Killing again since the new season is about to come out. He positively towers over Ms. Enos - at least a foot taller, and the dude has a slouchy way about him in that role. So, either Mirielle Enos is the size of my 8-year-old, or he really is 6'2".
pataan19 said on 14/May/14
Hey Rob what do you make of these photos??? Has Michael Keaton resorted to wearing lifts or is Joel 6'1" range, kinda like Samuel Jackson??!

Click Here
pataan19 said on 5/May/14
Hey Rob, he does seem almost 2 inches shorter than Billy Campbell and at least 2 1/2 inches shorter than Alex skarsgard. Might be that his fairly thin frame might make him appear taller?? What's the chances of him being 6'1.5" or a tad over???
Editor Rob
187 range is possible
MD said on 18/Mar/14
He's pretty clearly a tall guy. I mean, he absolutely towered Gary Oldman for the premiere events for Robocop - though, Gary might still be a bit smaller than even currently listed. But, then I see pics like this with Jimmy Kimmel:

Click Here

I can only assume, then, that tthis is about as good of proof as you need that Jimmy at least sometimes wears lifts, because there is no way Joel is any smaller than listed, right?
Alex said on 16/Mar/14
Pretty tall. I guess more like 189 or 6'2.5".
Martin said on 29/Oct/13
"Emily says on 28/Jul/13
Could it be that the Swedes all have a small head for their height? First Skarsgard, then Kinnaman, they're both very tall but have a small head for their height. " Could be, but I am a swede and I have a big head (maybe not for my height, but still). I am 190 cm

Many swedish guys are baby faced though...

From the short scene in Safe House, and depending on whether you agree with this site that Ryan Reynolds is 6'2" (I do), this listing seems accurate. They looked fairly level to me.
