Rob, could you please add Heard to The Sopranos tag?

Heard gave a very memorable performance over five episodes as Det. Vin Makazian.

Rob, could you please add The Pelican Brief and In the Line of Fire to Heard’s credits?

I would say 5’8.5” for Heard is accurate. I recall 5’9” Don Johnson was at least an inch taller than Heard on Miami Vice but DJ’s inflated footwear brought him close to 5’10” at times on that show. Heard could have passed for even a tad over 5’9” on Home Alone as he towered over Joe Pesci and Heard didn’t look much under 5’9” on The Sopranos but I’d still agree with 5’8.5”.

I'm so surprised about this. I always imagined him to be much tallerthan this, for some reason.

Shorter than I thought...

I remember when he use to have a 5'7 lisiting on I M D B and Pesci had 5'5 and when I watched Home Alone I noticed that he towered Pesci by about 5 or 6 inches.

Rob, could you add known for Cutter's Way (in which he was fantasic), Cat People, After Hours, Big, Beaches, Home Alone, Awakenings and TV shows like The Sopranos and Prison Break?...yes, he is nearing 70, so he probably has shrunk.

He's looking 5'7 tops today, he looks to have lost a lot of height from his Home Alone days.

I think this listing is spot on, for a peak height!

No way. I just saw Big the other day and he's way shorter than Tom Hanks, who is 6'. Probably 5' 5" at best.

He looked short while he was on Prison Break.
