I’d say a weak 6’ for peak
on Fringe, posture was never great, but was the best part about that show.
incidentally I saw a fansite for Joshua Jackson in which they had a quote of him saying 6ft and 170 pounds...however no idea the original time or source. He could have said it when younger...

182 young, 180 today

i still think 182cm is arguable for prime

Upgrade to weak 6’

If he's under 5'11" it ain't by much!
With Tom Mison
he can look under it, though a fraction less footwear could be the cause.
In person a few years back John seemed a 5ft 11 guy.

He doesn't look 5'11" to me!

Look at least a flat 180cm. He look 1 1/2 inch shorter than 6'0 3/8 Joshua Jackson. Click Here
Bobby said on 10/Jan/18
Honestly think he had 6ft peak height and 5'11.5 today.
World Citizen said on 11/Jun/17
Very accurate listing.
S.J.H said on 8/Jun/17
I believe in 179cm more chance as he gets older now. At least strong 5'11 twenty years back
said on 23/Apr/17
Was he 182 cm in this pic? Because 6ft is literally a cm over his head
Editor Rob: he looked 5ft 11 that day
S.J.H said on 27/Mar/17
He was 5'10.75 on height chart
Csimpson 6ft said on 10/Jan/17
I wouldnt say 179cm for Noble thats too low, with Rob he looks roughly 3 inches taller I think 5ft 11 is fine but 5ft 10.75 isnt impossible.
Jordan87 said on 14/Dec/16
Hmmmm Bit over 5'10" here.
said on 22/Sep/16
Okey i start to believe he was 179cm not under but if i'm right that he had more insole than rob he is 179cm not 180cm here. Peak 180cm i wouldn't say no. Strong 5'10.5
Editor Rob: his sneakers are certainly no more. Noble pretty much looked near 5ft 11 in person.
said on 4/Apr/16
Looks pretty close to the 5'11 listing. No less than 5'10.5
Editor Rob: I don't think he really is much less than 5ft 11
said on 1/Oct/15
Atually by his fraction footwear advantage he only look 5'10.25 with 5'8 rob
[Editor Rob: there's no real difference in sneaker, probably within a couple mm, but he's not under 179, he looked around 180 to me.]
Emil 182-183 cm said on 13/Jul/15
More like 5 centimeters if that's what you meant.
Vlad said on 5/Jul/15
Rob your head line reaches above his eyes I think he looks max 5 cm taller
Lorne??? said on 2/Jul/15
He did have weird posture on fringe...
I agree with these listings, especially since his agency had him at 182 and not 183cm.
seriously said on 21/Jun/15
all of you height obsessed people need to get a life. shape is more important than size any day of the week, and I am relatively tall FYI.
Hypado said on 17/Jun/15
John Noble's height is 5ft 11in (180 cm)
In this photo, looks this.
the shredder said on 16/Jun/15
This guy looks taller than Michgael Biehn.
said on 12/Jun/15
Why you still have them at 6'1 and 6'2 then? Hell, you can even argue Lance can look a couple inches taller in some scenes, 1.75 inches is very possible actually! 1.5 is really the minimum difference you can objectively see... I personally would give Lance 6'2.5 and Joshua 6'0.75, but i know you'll never do that! Choose yourself what to give them but put them 1.5 inches apart, at least!
[Editor Rob: well I could give him that 2.25 mark as he could likely have been dropping the fraction and going with 6ft 2]
184.3cm (Night) said on 12/Jun/15
He has really good posture 5'11 flat is the max i would give him. Dipping under wouldnt surprise me at all. Colm Meaney looks a solid 5'11 with Rob.
said on 11/Jun/15
Nothing, it seems a lost cause. I invite everybody to see some episodes of Fringe or even photos you can find on google and dare to say there's only one inch! Rob says celebheights is all about guess and i certainly agree with that. In this case, though, it's pretty CLEAR there's no less than 1.5 inches between them, it's up to you, if you wanna believe Lance is really 6'2.5 (which is very possible) and Joshua really close to 6'1 or Lance more 6'2 and Joshua 6'0.5 at best! But you can't have them an inch apart, even a blind man would see that! Same thing with Paul Walker, i've not seen the movie but you said he was maybe half an inch taller than Joshua. Still, he's listed at 6'2, same as Lance. But again downgrading him to 6'1-6'1.25 would mean a downgrade for The Rock and for Vin, if you wanna mantain the same "distance". I may appear a bit too repetitive and i'm sorry about that but you seem to ignore it. I just like the site and i'm happy to help with more accurate listings, that's all...
[Editor Rob: sometimes you can round small fractions, it's not that much but 6ft 0.75 and 6ft 2.25 could well be what they measure.]
Sam said on 11/Jun/15
This guy has a somewhat lanky look/build about him IMO, based on proportions alone I thought he was taller. From the photo, he's certainly no taller than the listing.
said on 10/Jun/15
Looks a true 5'11 with Rob, unlike Colm Meaney.
[Editor Rob: no difference in person really!]
Andrea said on 10/Jun/15
Ok, but at least decide what listings you should fix! You can't have Joshua and Lance only one inch apart, there's minimum 1.5 inches between them, sometimes he can even look more 2 inches... And i don't think i am the only saying that, if you visit Lance's page. Anyone who saw (i actually saw only the season one) the series will agree on that! Maybe, give Joshua 6'0.75 and Lance 6'2.25 (if you don't wanna change them too much)... That way, you could always say Paul Walker could have measured a fraction over 6'1, like 6'1.25 (since you said he could have been maybe half an inch taller than Josh). That seems quite reasonable!
said on 10/Jun/15
He does look around 5'11 with you, so yeah, 5'11.5 at peak is very possible, consider he's 66! Now, you just have to drop Joshua to 6'0.5, Rob! There's noway he's only an inch shorter than Lance, at least 1.5 :) The question is: is Lance more 6'2.5 and Joshua not much under 6'1 or Lance is really more 6'2 flat and Joshua 6'0.5 on a good day?
[Editor Rob: as we've said before it could be possible Lance measured a little over the 6ft 2 mark, Joshua I feel can still be near 6ft 1.]
said on 10/Jun/15
so, Rob? Do you believe he was still near 5'11.5 6-7 years ago or do you believe he was already more 5'11 flat?
[Editor Rob: 181 range maybe was more possible on Fringe, but as I say I think on that show he never had as good a posture as he does in person, which I'd say was good for age 66. My sneakers are 0.7in, his looked around 0.6-0.7 I'd call them.]
Dmeyer said on 10/Jun/15
Looking at eye Level he looks 5'11.25-11.5
Crypto139 said on 10/Jun/15
Photo taken by Man Crush Monday? Lol it says MCM. But 5 feet 11.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/15
He strikingly resembles fellow Aussie actor Geoffrey Rush and just so happens to be of the same stature. Even more of a coincidence...They've both been listed 6ft1 in the past
said on 9/Jun/15
Great picture, Rob! I told you he looked noway near 6' with Lance ;)
Do you think he was already 5'11 range during Fringe or could have still been taller than it?
[Editor Rob: I think in person he had better posture than his Fringe character had at time, I believe at 66 0.5 loss is possible from early 90's maybe.]
A6'1Guy said on 12/Feb/15
In my opinion:
J. Noble: Prime 6'0, 5'11 now
J. Jackson: 6'1 - 6'1.5
L. Reddick: 6'2.5
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 14/Dec/14
Looks a legit 6ft guy.
gian92 said on 14/Dec/14
he is 5'11 next to Joshua Jackson
said on 1/Nov/14
Is he closer to 5'11 now?
[Editor Rob: could be dipping towards that range.]
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 30/Sep/14
He's a 6ft guy.
judd said on 13/Sep/14
strong 5'11" next to Reddick (6'2.5") and J. Jackson
Fring3 said on 14/Jul/13
I think his peak was at 181 maybe 182 MAX on a good day , he struggles to look 180 these days most likely 179 today.
Aragorn 5'11 said on 15/Jan/13
He's 5'11 (180 cm). I saw him at all the Fringe premieres in Los Angeles and he is exactly 1 inch taller than me and I'm 5'10. Also he looked around the same height as Viggo Mortensen, Sean Bean, and David Wenham all who are in the 5'10/5'11 range. In Fringe he also looks a legit 5'11 though in almost all the episodes he hunches a lot! 6'0 was probably his peak height. Great actor and very nice to meet!
said on 3/Jan/13
Ahahha Rob, i bet you were gonna say something like this! From the pics, you can clearly see he's straight, dont you see? When you dunno what to say, you just say its posture ahahah
[Editor Rob: he has poor posture at times, but you showed me a photo of noble a foot behind Lance...of course he's going to look shorter than 6ft.
I could show you a photo Of Lance with loose posture
not looking taller.
In any case I believe John is still not far from 6ft mark.]
said on 2/Jan/13
Rob, how can he be 6' if Reddick is only 189?
He's noticeably taller than him!
[Editor Rob: noble can look 5ft 11 on that show at times, I don't think he maintains as good posture as someone like lance does.]
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 30/Aug/12
I think he was a strong 6ft at peak, 6'0.25" (183.5 cm) perhaps.
JohnDosen said on 27/Dec/11
If that pic. is correct, he is only 5 ft 10½ because there is not 2 inch (5.08 cm) different between them, max. 1½ (3,81 cm) so John Noble is approx. 5 ft 10½ today.
said on 11/Dec/11
With 5'9 Craig Parker Click Here
JohnDosen said on 12/Aug/11
Maybe in his prime - I think approx. 5'11 today.
Ciccio said on 14/May/11
Maybe 6 ft 1
guyfrommars said on 17/Feb/09
Bill Ward was never 5ft10. Look at the "Sabotage" cover with 5ft10 Ozzy in heels and Bill in his socks. He's no way taller than 5ft8. I've always thought he's 5ft7. Geezer is a slight 5ft6 with big heels on stage.
glenn said on 28/Dec/07
you know 5-10 peak for ward was possible.i think he should be changed to 5-9 now actually.butler is 5-6.dont know peak.ozzy is 5-9 now.5-10 peak.iommi is 6ft.possible 6-1 peak.
Sam said on 28/Dec/07
I met him back stage in 75 or 76 I remember he walked right past me to the limo. I would say he is under 5ft 8 and Geezer Butler is shorter than that.
Bill is one of the top 10 best drummers of all time!
Glenn said on 31/Jan/07
They painted his privates silver while he slept in 1975.he got blood poisoning too I believe.that part of it,not funny.
the shredder said on 30/Jan/07
190lbs my ass ! atleast 200LBS
D. Ray Morton said on 30/Jan/07
That's great. I never knew that he was the band "scape goat" - the Jason Newsted of Black Sabbath!
My favorite quote of his was when he said that he couldn't even have one drink today because he'd "end up buying the bar."
Glenn said on 30/Jan/07
Great guy.I heard he was always pranked by the Sabbath members for years.when I brought it up to him he replied in a serious and somewhat spooked voice"it NEVER stops!". I never forgot that! I read they pulled his shorts down while he had a cup of tea in one hand and an umbrella in the other,in front of 20,000 people! he was a guest at the show when Vinny temp replaced him.the name of the KERRANG article was "My balls have been flashed around the world so many times".it doesnt get more funnier than that!
D. Ray Morton said on 29/Jan/07
Excellent! Bill is a class act.
Glenn said on 29/Jan/07
Oh,duh,didnt remember the other was up.
Marc said on 7/Aug/06
Yeah, on several albums in the 1970s, he was standing the same hieght as Ozzy, who was 5'10". Bill Ward may have shrunk due to age, but Ozzy shrunk because of other reasons.
Glenn said on 20/Jul/06
I guess thats true.that must be his youth height.
Glenn said on 20/Jul/06
5-8 is perfect.5-10 is BS.
D. Ray Morton said on 20/Jul/06
Yeah, Bill's no more than 5'8" these days.
Danimal said on 19/Jul/06
Like Ozzy, he's giving his peak height and not what he's currently at. It's a denial/pride thing. Clint Eastwood does it. They all do. People refuse to admit that they shrunk, except for Hulk Hogan. As least he's honest about it.
