Canson, then Edward Hartmann must've been a very strong 6ft5 at least. In Richie Rich he's clearly taller than Larroquette...
Canson said on 11/Jan/18
@Rampage: he was possibly on the cusp of weak 6’5” peak he was taller than my father who peak was a legit 6’4, 6’4 maybe 6’4 1/8 (and still almost 6’4 in his late 60s as he’s done well). Larroquette could’ve been 6’4.5 easy peak. This is one of the few celebs I actually feel is underlisted only because I’ve seen him up close but didn’t look at footwear and it was only for a few seconds but he looked a hair taller than my father next to him. I was also much younger. This has to have been around 25 years ago maybe more

Strong 6 foot 4 in stripes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
Very strong 6ft4 range in his prime. One of the guys I'd consider adding a bit of change to (along with Neeson, Hasselhoff, Seagal and Lithgow)
Canson said on 15/Nov/17
@CDS: prob 6’4 1/2 (194-195)
CDS said on 1/Nov/17
I didn't see a Bobby Moynihan page, but on the recent show "Me Myself and I", he and Larroquette play the same character at different ages -- Moynihan at 40, in the present, and John at 65, in the future. I don't know why it bugs me with the 2 of them being so far off height-wise LOL. It's really not a bad show. One of the comments suggested Bobby Moynihan is around 5'7"? I noticed they surround Larroquette with some other tall actors like Ed Begley Jr. maybe to make him look more average. FTR, in his prime I would easily guess him at 6'5", but maybe close to 6'4" today..??
Canson said on 24/Oct/17
@Christian: lol he is one of the few I would have to say Rob has at least for a peak underlisted. But prob by 1/2” is about it. Maybe 5/8 is a max. He could be a Barkley like peak.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 24/Oct/17
Larroquette's probably the tallest 6'4" listed celeb on this site. Even more than Liam Neeson and probably on par with Jack Swagger my opinion.
Canson said on 23/Oct/17
@Junior and Hunch: i agree with junior. Larroquette Def was 6’4.5. I would’ve prob thought nearer 6’5” but maybe because I just saw him walk past My father and didn’t notice shoes or stance. And it wasn’t that much of a diff very slight but noticeable for me to see it. My father at that stage prob was still 6’4” flat as he would’ve been in his early 50s or late 40s when we saw him. I think peak he maybe was like 6’4 1/8. He was a good 6’4 but not a guy who woke up to 6’5” either. Even at 70 he’s still just about 6’4 maybe 6’3.75 is a worst case. I know when I first hit 6’4 we were identical at one point barefoot back to back
Hunch said on 21/Oct/17
Junior, that sounds completely reasonable to me.
Junior said on 16/Oct/17

I agree a peak Larroquette is a 194+ guy and maybe measure himself morning at 6'5 and topping 193cm at age 70.
berta said on 8/Oct/17
when he was young he could look like a 194 cm man. But i remmeber in chuck he was no taller than zachary levi, maybe shorter.and he was maybe 60 years old in that episode. He is a hard onepeak i thinki would go with myabe 1/4 over this and current is probably down to 6 foot 3
Hunch said on 6/Oct/17
The thing is, Larroquette’s height is confusing me a bit. Next to Richard Moll, I can see the possibility of a full four inch difference. However, next to most other actors, he looked like he could have been in the 6’4.5” to 6’5” range when young. And what is even more confusing is that I’ve seen a few places that list Richard Moll at 6’7.5”. What would make the most sense to me is that Moll really was over 6’8” too, because he gives a taller impression to me than even a 6’8.5” listed Brad Garrett. The height difference between Moll and 7’2”ish Kevin Peter Hall looked more like 5 inches than 6. Even though he still got unavoidably typecast for his size, Richard was very interested in being a skilled actor rather than just a giant hulk, so I could see him rounding down or purposefully shaving a little off his height. I don’t know. This is a real head scratcher.
Deathstroke said on 13/Sep/17
Peak 194cm, today 192cm. He is turning 70 this year after all, so it's not surprising that he has lost almost an inch.
Canson said on 24/Jul/17
@Christian: I could buy 6'4.5 for him. somewhere in 194-195 zone That's about right looked about 1/2" taller than him and could've been footwear very true
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 23/Jul/17

I Don't think Larroquette was closer to 6'5" than 6'4". Maybe he had footwear advantage over your dad, because you mentioned you didn't pay attention to his footwear. Even Rampage Clover is saying he was 6'4.5", and Rampage has a reputation for upping celebrities heights often. (no offense to him)
Canson said on 12/Jun/17
@HollywoodFan: that's odd. I never thought Lou was 6'4" but peak he was 6'3" and 6'2" today. Larroquette peak was prob closer to 6'5" than a flat 6'4" at very worst he was right in the middle at 6'4.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/17
6ft4½ peak is likely I think.
HollywoodFan said on 19/May/17
On an episode of Night Court, John had at least 3 inches on bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno.
Canson said on 6/May/17
Needs an upgrade for his peak. He's over 6'4 peak. closer to 6'5. When I met him He looked a pinch taller than my father who at his prime was 193-193.5. And in the 90s still measured that I'd go no less than 194-195 for him. He'd be along the lines of Charles Barkley or Michael Jordan
Anonymous said on 15/Apr/17
The 6'7" actor I mentioned in the previous post was Ron Feinberg. Feinberg looked 6'7" next to Michael Conrad. And Richard Moll looked a solid 6'8"+ next to Feinberg in heels.
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
I actually walked right past John Laroquette in the airport once. Probably early to 90s I'd have to guess. I hadn't reached my full height but my father is 6'4" and Laroquette looked a hair taller than him so 6'4.5 is likely for him
Anonymous said on 14/Apr/17
Rob, there is an episode of Night Court with a young Dennis Haysbert and Larroquette looked taller. I really think he may have been 6'4.5" prime. I think that is a sweet spot for him. I completely see what you mean next to Richard Moll; he doesn't look a solid 6'5". But I do think he is more than a flat 6'4". Moll wasn't much shorter than 7' something Kevin Peter Hall, and still has at least 3 inches on Jared Padalecki in recent years, so he was definitely a solid 6'8". Richard could have even been a hair over 6'8" at his peak because he looked no shorter than a 6'7" listed bit part actor wearing a dress and big heels for a gag on Night Court. And the fact that Larroquette has said both 6'4" and 6'5" for his own height makes me think he is exactly like Stephen Fry, a 6'4.5"

My Night Court height guesses

Harry Anderson - 6'3.75"
John Larroquette - 6'4.5"
Charles Robinson - 6'3"
Richard Moll - 6'8"-6'8.25"
Markie Post - 5'6"
Marsha Warfield - 5'10.75"

I couldn't hazard a guess on Selma Diamond or Florence Hallop because they looked so much smaller than the rest of the cast.
Sam said on 23/Jan/17
Again, he claims 6'5" in this interview.

Any chance you could see a 194 cm listing for his peak, Rob?
Editor Rob: against Richard Moll I never thought 6ft 5 was likely, although I could see an argument for a bit over 6ft 4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Dec/16
Peak: 194cm
Today: 192-193cm
Mayfield said on 18/Nov/16

The mystery here is how tall Harry Anderson is, and here he is with John Ratzenberger, measured at 5'9.5. Judging by this, maybe Harry was perhaps in the 6'3.5-75 range?

And another thought that could be worth looking into.... a lot of people, me included, think Larroquette is a fraction over 6'4, but you make the argument that over a four inch difference on Moll. I do wonder if they tried to make Moll look taller than he is on the show, maybe some special footware? Worth looking into

Looks more than a mere 6'4 next to Larry Drake

Look at Larroquette here, has a slight edge on Kevin Nealon
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/16
Rob, could you add him?

189cm peak is possible. Today I don't know. He's in his 70's.
Editor Rob: would need to have a look at him some point, he is worth a page.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/16
Similar to Robbins or Corbett in his prime...

He's been given 6ft2 in places.
Editor Rob: been described 6ft 2 and 3, I think has to be at least 6ft 2
Alex V. said on 21/May/16
194 cm peak, just a hair shorter than 195 cm Tim Robbins IMO
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/16
Rob, have you looked at the clip Danimal posted?

I think he has a valid point. He looks 6ft5+ w/h Michael Richards (at least 6ft3 peak). 194/195cm range looked believable in Night Court, especially if he still looks 6ft4 today.
Editor Rob: with Moll he never looked over 6ft 4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/16
He looked similar to Edward Hermann (who was a legit 6ft5) in Richie Rich, maybe just a hair shorter.

Rob, maybe 194cm peak?
Editor Rob: I thought he was a good 4 inches smaller than Moll on Night Court.
Anonymous said on 28/Dec/15
And I'm pretty sure that Harry Anderson was actually 6'4". He edged out Vincent Schiavelli.
Danimal said on 19/Sep/15
To claim he was only 6'4" is ridiculous. He was taller than LEGIT 6'4" Harry Anderson and here he is next to 6'3" Michael Richards, who he has minimum 2-3". Michael was around 6'3": Click Here

John was minimum 6'5". Even the producer of the show said he was between 6'4" and 6'6".

He looked about the same height as Tony Todd in an episode of Night Court, although he had worse posture. Maybe 6'4.5 to 6'5 peak and 6'4 or just a hair under today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/15
Still looked close to this on House. Comfortably taller than Hugh Laurie...
Danimal said on 22/Jan/15
6'5" in his prime. Had 1" on 6'4" Harry Anderson on Night Court.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 4.5in (194cm)"

Looked near 6ft5 in his prime
Bob said on 14/Oct/13
Larroquette 6'4" barefoot, 6'5" in shoes
Matthew said on 4/Oct/13
On an SNL episode John hosted, he was a little bit taller than 6'4 Kevin Nealon, so 6'5 sounds right.
Silent d said on 5/Oct/12
6 foot 4.
Danimal said on 8/Jun/12
Also, if James Cromwell was between 6'6" and 6'7", John was easily 6'5", seeing James barely had 1" on him in the 1985 Night Court Episode called "Nuts About Harry". They stood side by side. John actually looked to be at least 6'5".
Danimal said on 8/Jun/12
On the behind the scenes of Night Court, the producer of the show said John was somewhere between 6'4" and 6'6". To me, he was probably just scraping 6'5" when he had great posture. Harry Anderson was also described as 6'4" and John was noticeably taller than him. Harry may have been 6'3.5" and rounded up and John 6'4.5"-6'4 7/8" and rounded down. One thing was obvious that when 6'3" Michael Richards (Kramer) made a guest appearance on the show in late 1984, he stood side by side with John and John had a good 2" on him, if not more. John also had a good inch on then 6'4" Lou Ferrigno in the 1980's. Again, John was a 6'5" man all the way. Harry was 6'4". Mac was 6'3" and Bull (Richard Moll) was 6'8". VERY tall cast.
aaronious said on 2/Jan/12
i tend to think closer to 6'5", since he was taller than Lou Ferrigno, but then again, he may have had a footwear advantage over louie

6ft 4.5 peak?
LAN Jiao said on 23/Oct/11
John Larroquette legit 6'4 peak. Now still 6'4. Tom Selleck 6'3 , Vincent d Onofrio 6'3.
daisym0m said on 19/Sep/11
I like tall actors. Tom Selleck is 6'4, Vincent Donofrio is 6'4, and my husband was 6'4".
truthman said on 16/Aug/11
He wasn't. He was 6'4 at peak (4 inches shorter than "Bull") and probably 6'3 now.
Shadow2 said on 14/Jun/11
John was 6'5" in his "Night Court" days, and now in his 60's is not shorter than 6'4", as can be seen recently in his appearance on "Chuck" with the very tall stars of that show.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/11
6ft3.5 is better
Truthman said on 21/May/11
Strong 6'4 guy without any doubt.
Jim Beau said on 3/May/11
In season 1, episode 10 of Night Court, he states that he is 6'4".
Ace said on 9/Feb/11
After watching Night Court and Boston Legal, I too Rob agree that 6'4 is too short for him. He was definitely closer to 6'5 at peak. At bare minimum he was 6'4.5. Any lower is just not possible
Anonymous said on 12/Jan/11
looks 6'5ish in Stripes. Next to 5'11ish Warren Oates he has at least 5.5 inches on him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/10
194cm at peak

Todays he's looking marginally under 6"4

On a Night Court episode, he said he was six foot four.

However, interesting thing: I have the first season of Night Court on DVD. On the pilot has commentary by creator Reinhold Weege. He talks about the heights of the male cast members. He says Harry Anderson is 6'4. He said John Larroquette is between 6'4 and 6'6. He said Richard Moll is about 6'8.

Anyway, is it possible John larroquette is 6'6? What do you think?

6'5" sounds about right to me.

Rob, check out this short youtube clip. Someone finally uploaded the Night Court episode I referenced in the past that has 6'3" Michael Richards standing next to John Larroquette, both wearing dress shoes.
Click Here
There is definitely more than a 1 inch difference between the two. I think Larroquette's assertion that he is 6'5" is very reasonable and deserves an upgrade.

I agree, seeing Harry Anderson ALSO claims to be 6'4", but John Laroquette ALWAYS appeared to be taller. I still go with my assertion that John was at the HIGH end of 6'4" (closer to 6'5"), but downgraded to 6'4" and Harry Anderson was a probably 6'3.5" and rounded up. I would even go so far as to say that Harry was 6'3 1/4" and John 6'4 3/4" and both claimed 6'4". MACK on the show claimed to be 6'3". I believe he rounded up as well. Richard Moll (BULL) was a legit 6'8".

One of the FIRST things Shatner says is that JOHN LARROQUETTE is 6 foot 5. And this is current because he was on Boston Legal only for the past two years.
Ange said on 19/Oct/08
I stated on the Moll's page that Larroquette was 6'5. just judging by where my head was in relation to his body (a little bit above his elbow, but below his shoulder. I'm 5'1) neither wearing sketch shoes, I think he should be upgraded.
Danimal said on 10/Sep/08
Harry Anderson was a legit 6'4" and John Larroquette was taller. I always gave Harry 6'3.5" and John 6'4 3/4". Harry rounded up and John rounded down.
Ange said on 9/Sep/08
I remember serving him once at Starbucks in the mid 90s (btw EXTREMELY kind, funny and HANDSOME man in real life) and I would say he was a hair over 6'4. He seemed much taller than even that! I'm only 5'1 so every seems like a giant to me, but I remember being kind of surprised at how tall he was.
runt said on 21/May/08
No way Actor2Be. Richard Moll has been upgraded from 6'7.5 to 6'8 and he never really even looked 3" taller than John on Night Court. Next you'll be telling us Moll is 6'5.5 to 6'6 OR that Moll is 6'8 but John was wearing lifts on Night Court. That's ridiculous because the reason why Moll was hired in the first place is because they were struggling to find someone taller than the rest of the cast. Why would they let John wear lifts?!?!?
Actor2Be said on 17/Apr/08
Just filmed a segment with him two days ago and stood next to him. I'm 6'1". He's no taller than 6'3" and maybe not quite that. Sorry.
Clark said on 29/Mar/08
Probably between 6'4.5"-6'5" even without the hair. He is very tall.
supes78 said on 18/Feb/08
He was Live with Regis and Kelly this morning and once again referred to himself as being 6'5" tall. I really do think this guy should be bumped up to at least 6'4.5" tall.
Danimal said on 21/Sep/07
It would make sense that a 60 something year old man is no longer his PEAK height of 6'4".

He is 6ft 3in tall. I emailed his official web site. Makes me wonder how tall Harry Anderson really is (judge from Night Court) since he is shorter than Begley, and is supposedly 6ft 4in.

My pleasure Stewy
stewy said on 16/Aug/07
That is a fairly decent observation. It certainly makes sense, and now that I have studied them again, it looks pretty accurate. Excellent work on that, man.
Danimal said on 14/Aug/07
Stewy, what I believe is that Laroquette is probably 6'4 3/4" and Harry was 6'3 1/4" and they rounded their heights both to 6'4". John wasn't referring to his characters height buddy. He was referring to his own!
stewy said on 14/Aug/07
John was definitely an inch taller than Harry Anderson, who everyone knows is
6'4". So I would say John is absolutely 6'5". When I watched the reruns I didn't really notice this, until I bought Season 1 on DVD, and watched the episode "Some Like It Hot", where John states, "I'm 6'4", I don't have to flaunt it." My guess for the 6'4" height is maybe his character(Dan Fielding)
was supposed to be 6'4" or he thought he was 6'4".
Viper652 said on 31/May/06
He looked 6-4 in nightcourt.
supes78 said on 28/May/06
I've heard him say on the Conan O' Brien show and the Tonight show that he is 6'5" tall. But then he's stated in an episode of Night Court that he is 6'4" tall. He's an inch taller than self-admitted 6'4" Harry Anderson so I'd say the truth is more likely 6'4.5" for John.
