6 inches but rob is not standing as good as schneider who i think has footware advantage over rob?

If rob stood as straight and if Schneider wore smaller shoes that would add up to a 5 inch difference.

Like I said nowhere near 6'3 compared to a 5'8 man in the photo.
Viper said on 14/Apr/11
Nah, he at least has 6 inches on Rob. Or at the minimum 5.5

even looks as low as 6'1.25 (186cm) with rob.

I'd say he looks taller than that. His eye level is comfortably an inch and a half above the top of Rob's head, so he looks 6'2" anyways.

Yeah but Johns hairstyle is defenintly adding more height and making him look taller so gives of a 6'2 illusion in the photo. if he shaved his head i bet he would look 6'1 in the pic. he's got hair advantage in his favour for sure looks like his hairstyle is adding 1.5 to his height.

1.5 inches over robs head????? maybe more 1 inch so yeah i guess 6'2 is possible in the pic but no way does he look 6'3 in the photo.

No actually, he looks 188-189cm with Rob with a slouch

190-191cm upstraight...6"3 is fine. He probably got measured at 192cm out of bed and therefore thinks he's almost 6"4

Nothing under 188cm. 189 seems to be the most accurate.

Tom Welling and Schneider are pretty even in height. Maybe 6'2.75 is the correct mark.

Looks 187cm or 188cm in the picture

Weird. I met this guy 30 years ago at a Bruce Springsteen concert at LA Coliseum. The person I was with remarked (prior to meeting him) that it was John Schneider. I told her she was crazy cuz Schneider is tall and this guy was not. I'm 6'4" and had 3-4 inches on him easily.
Chameleon said on 26/Feb/11
Allright then :)
James said on 26/Feb/11
i disagree he is 1 inch taller than 6'2. Hasselhoff is 6'3 1/2 these days.

Schneider is the full 6'3 (191cm).

Sure in the photo he looks 6'1 1/2 in comparison to rob but that is just the way the pic is taken.
SolidSnake said on 26/Feb/11
has a bit of a big belly. At 6'3 he is probably 200 pounds ish not 175
Chameleon said on 25/Feb/11
Yeah well we cant see their feet and Hassl might be slouching, but I dont know, he may be 191 as listed but with Rob I cant see more then 188cm.
Vegas said on 25/Feb/11
chameleon he looks same nearly height as david hasselhoff in photos Click Here

kevin peter hall is listed at 7'3 (i think he is more 7'1 based on how he measured up next to 6'8 richard moll on nightcourt) but either way certainly isn't 13 inches or indeed 11 inches taller than schneider in dukes, 1min 50seconds Click Here
Chameleon said on 24/Feb/11
Indeed, Im sticking with 6'2.
James said on 24/Feb/11
Chameleon in the picture he looks 188cm but next to mick foley he defenintly looks 6'3 although that said mick foleys foleys isn't always brilliant?

To be frank in the pic with rob i also woulden't rule out 187cm.
Chameleon said on 24/Feb/11
I thought you ment he looks 188cm?? Who were you talking about?

I do think this guy is 188cm.
James said on 23/Feb/11
John Schneider 188cm? i don't think so the guy is a legit 191cm.
Chameleon said on 22/Feb/11
Yeah James this guy is 188cm.
James said on 20/Feb/11
yeah vegas foley can look under 6'2 with bad posture.

funny u would think that terrible fall he had of the hell in a cell back in 1998 would have made him lose height.
Vegas said on 19/Feb/11
James says on 29/Dec/10
yeah rob in your video schneider looks a solid 6'3 with Foley. Are you sure Mick foley is not 6'1.5 (187cm) though?

___________

met foley in person a few times, he ain't under 6'2, not standing fully tall anyway

robs got hillbilly jim at 6'5 and foley certainly ain't anywhere near 4 or even 3 inches shorter than him, 1min 40seconds onward Click Here

Yeah I agree he's 188cm.

On Nip Tuck he looked 188cm

rob with mick foley he actually looks under 6'2. could it be dodgy camera angle? both foley and schneider have got big footware.

in the pic with you rob he looks 6'2.5 (189cm)

[Editor Rob: there is a little tilt to mick's favour I think.

this guy is definitely not 6'4.5'' in the morning, The guy looks 6'3'' at absolute tops. Could even be in the 6'2'' range.

sidewalk: sorry I watched the series as accurately as possible and Tom is 60% of the time taller and that is really clear, 35% as tall as Jhon and 5% he looks shorter.
Open your eyes and get rid of what you thought before, any prejudice, and you see what have seen all the people i showed it. Even so, John is 6'3 and no less than 6'2/5, in my humble opinion.

I watch the show all the time and John is taller than Tom Welling.

I believe in this pic_-John was wearing Converse All Stars--that have NO heel. I think 6'3" is about right. Keep in mind, we are not asking these folks to stand at their tallest when taking the picture. I am an inch taller when I stand up straight.

[Editor Rob: he was wearing Nike Shox.]

Hugh said on 28/Jan/09
Patrick, I trust EdRob of course, I think it's really strange you're telling this. I was just noticing things the way they seem to be. Don't tell "no hard feelings" when you just tried to create them writing your previous post.

Hugh, I never want to be right at all cost. That
Hugh said on 20/Jan/09
(That anonymous one was me,obviously). Alright, I'm not that awful in writing, but in reading..LOL. :D
This adds ~ 0.5", making Schneider 6'2", max 6'2.5" to me (189 cm but I'm still doubtful about it, because as I said I've tried the same picture producing some evidences that make me think he is not taller than 6'2" barefoot).
Anonymous said on 19/Jan/09
Rob I know you were barefoot, but as you said before you already were wearing a 0.3" shoes. He still had 1" advantage on you because of his shoes. Am I so awful in writing?

[Editor Rob: I said he may have about 0.3 inch advantage over me. I always wear sneakers in or around 1 inch apart from couple conventions where I wore 0.75 inch. His Nike Shox might be 1.3 inch.]
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
You didn't read my posts carefully. Looking Rob's pictures, you can see (as I said before Rob posted the last one!!) Schneider 6'2", but you have to take in account his posture and shoes. If he was having a straight posture, he would be 6'2.5" or 6'3" but you still have to remember you have to remove at least 1.3" because of shoes!!! Then he is 6'2" or something less (6'1.5"). And this is not because I'm telling you here, but just because you can measure by yourself on those pictures. After this everybody can tell whatever he/she wants (he is 5', or he is 7'), but facts are there.

[Editor Rob: I think I confused you with the markings - they represent barefoot as I was 5ft 8 barefoot on the other image I'm comparing against...so as he stands there he was on the 6ft 2, or 6ft 2.5 with hair but this I mean is how he would be barefoot.]
Yaspaa said on 19/Jan/09
So Hugh,that means 6'2ish in his shox,thats crazy!
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
Yaspaa, Rob said that but he included Schneider shoes (as you can see in the last picture he posted). To obtain his barefoot height you have to remove at least an inch.
Da Man said on 18/Jan/09
That's why put the "~" in front of 6'2", meaning roughly 6'2". :)
Yaspaa said on 17/Jan/09
He did say adding another half inch would be fine.
Da Man said on 16/Jan/09
I think Rob pretty much proved Schneider is a ~6'2" guy.
Yaspaa said on 16/Jan/09
Ooh,handbags at the ready,its sarcasm tennis.
Hugh said on 15/Jan/09
You're really a pleasant person Patrick..Obviously you are one of the "someone" who "wants to be right at all cost", thank you for admitting it and for underlining that your affirmations are suspect and "dangerous".

Fortunately here are some pictures that confirm what you admitted, so it is really evident.
Patrick said on 15/Jan/09
Very good "comparison job" Ed Rob! I like you Hugh because you obviously know better than "him" what "he" did and how he stood etc. When someone wants to be right at all cost, I find that really suspect, even "dangerous" (about other topics more serious I mean). John looks and appears next to chart as 6'3. Deal.
talker said on 13/Jan/09
this guy can be deceiving,i recently saw an 80's TV movie with him and he didnt look any more than 6'2"max,but searching for pics of him with other celebs in the net he is clearly around 6'3"or more,there's a photo of him with Hasselhoff where they look identical height.He doesnt look it in his movies.
Hugh said on 12/Jan/09
Yes Rob, but you had a bad posture too in the picture with Schneider, and he had 1.3 in of shoes while you didn't...These pictures are teaching me more about celebrities heights.

[Editor Rob: my posture is ok, I did have a rucksack that day, my posture is worse in another shot with This Lady that day.]
Yaspaa said on 12/Jan/09
Is your head closer to the camera here Rob?,I cant buy him under 6'2,he appears to have good posture but his hips indicate him leaning slightly to one side. What about the Routh picture surely that would come out the same. This has my head spinning,a guy under 6'2 surely wouldn't have the gall to say 6'4;would he?

[Editor Rob: I think adding another 1/2 inch posture for John is fine, routh was standing pretty decent.]
Hugh said on 12/Jan/09
Rob, on the left side you didn't have a bad posture, while you do on the right side of that picture. Including Schneider posture and shoes I can guess a 6'1.5" barefoot for him.
hugh said on 11/Jan/09
I knew you would answer this way, but i've never seen an underestimated height on the web.Anyway it is just one picture between others it is not the last answer on this question..

Hugh the 6'5 guy I was comparing Jared Padalecki to is listed as 6'5 everywhere but you didn't want to know,climbing the mirrors was your response I believe.

I wouldn't give John 6'3 but definately 6'2 and change not 6'1 which was my point about Routh. Hugh how do you know fred is 6'0,if he is John looks to be under 6'0,very iffy.

"The difference is very similar to Brandon Routh. Is he also under 6'2."

IMO, Routh looks 6'2" to 6'2.5" at the max with Rob.

Yaspaa, I already knew what you say. But this picture doesn't show any difficulties of interpretation. I'm 6'1" (185.5 cm), one of my friend is 5'8.1" (173 cm). We've tried the same picture, I've worn my 1 year old nike shox, he his converse... The result is exactly the same.

Hugh, this road has been covered extensively and he certainly isn't 6'1 that is getting stupid,he is taller than Mick Foley and was noticeably taller than David Caruso and looked extremely similar in stature to 6'4 listed Rex Linn in a relatively recent episode of CSI Miami. Hugh I am reluctant to consider your reluctency towards John being 6'1,you cant attempt to be that accurate when all you have is a two 2 dimentional representation of a 3 dimentional image. You are missing the forest for the trees,dont delve too deep,you know what happend to the dwarves in Lord Of The Rings. 189.5
Hugh said on 7/Jan/09
Rob, what you say makes me think Schneider smaller than I supposed, less than 6'2", just a 6'1" and this sounds strange for a guy who says " i'm 6'4" "...

Considering your head height 25 cm (head tip to chin tip), making proportions on the picture you are 15 cm smaller than Schnider (including shoes heights). If you are 172.7 cm + 0.6 cm (shoes thickness) then Schnider is 172.7 + 0.6 + 15 = 188.3 cm including 1.3" (3.3 cm) because of shoes, making him 188.3 - 3.3 = 185 cm barefoot. Were you on the tips of your feet? :) I'm reluctant to consider him 6'1"...

Gary as you can see John Schneider eye level is 5'10" max, considering rob'shoes and posture, john shoes (nike shox) and posture then his eye level is 5'9" barefoot. As you say about yourself, I can guess again max 6'2".
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
I don't know what are Rob'shoes, but Schneider wears nike shox which are really thick. In this picture i can guess 6'2" max for Schneider.

[Editor Rob: they didn't look new so I would say 1.3 maybe, I'd just go with 1/4 inch more than me that day.

I was just looking at the original pic, it was taken at 11.20am. That morning I was up something like 4am to get down to Birmingham...]
linebacker40 said on 5/Jan/09
He always looked to me roughly an inch taller than Welling in Smallville, who I think is 6'3". Maybe it's the way he's somewhat angled in this picture that brings him down to the 6'3" range. Regardless, I still think he's a 6'4" flat when standing straight.
Gary said on 4/Jan/09
Im 6-2.5 barefoot and 5-9.75 eye level, and with shoes im 6-3.5 and 5-10.75 eye level, if rob is 5-9 with shoes, then he's around 6-3 maybe 6-3.25 in the picture

I met him at a car show and again after sneaking on The Burbank Studios lot in '80. He's 6' 3". I was 6' 7" in regular shoes, he 6' 5.5" in boots. Warner Bros. ripped him off for millions on the merchandising. Said I could pass as Brad Duke.

6ft2. He's eyes see 5ft9 level and add max of 5 inches of forehead above eye level gives 6ft2.

Watching Willie Nelson's 'Stagecoach' right this minute. Schneider is about 2 inches taller than Johnny Cash. Cash's eyes are at the bottom of Schneider's nose. Giving Cash 6'1" or so... and Schneider appears to be exactly 6'3".

Tom Welling can sometimes appear "taller" or lankier only due to the fact that he always wears boots which make his legs look longer while Schniedr is usually wearing loafers or casual dress shoes.

There is a big difference between 5'6 and 5'8 as Ed.Rob is KC.
I can assure you that differences are more obvious in shorter heights than higher ones for an obscure reason. You need to be very tall to make a 5'8 man looking as Rob does for Rob is not small.

Yaspaa said on 15/Mar/08
Patrick,some really interesting stuff there. Many of your mentioned shows are what I was watching as a child,so my opinions on these shows are from a childs perspective. The 'Trek' however is my biggest love. I loved the original series but TNG totally has my heart,Voyager is great to a lesser extent,Enterprise is OK and DS9 ( a soap opera in space)I really enjoy.Sci-fi/fantasy I tend to love in general,so yes, 'Trek' I really miss,I hope the new movie is good.
CSI, I watched and enjoyed for the first 4 seasons,but when CSI Miami,CSI New York and then 'bones', I got quite bored,there are only so many times you can watch someone with a black light looking for blood and other unpleasant bodily fluids.
NCIS brings quality, unpredictable storylines with a silver lining of humour and charm which I am thoroughly enjoying at the moment.
I am a TV freak,TV shows tend to give much more closure to the watcher over 'most' movies,you can really get attached to characters over the course of how ever many seasons,and in these shows I am always aware of their statural prominence,estimating how tall I think they are,for the only purpose of.. knowing.
I will give any show a try and if it offers well written witty,interesting or exciting storylines I will keep watching it and keep mentally measuring actors summits. A tout a l'heure.

Ah,Patrick you have tracked me down and are not wrong in assuming that I am not easily manipulated.When I am wrong I am still right,lol,and sticking with that belief will make me content forever.
I think John looks a solid 6'2 in this picture,maybe 0.25 inches more but not 6'3 and certainly not the 6'4 he claims. With the 0.5 inch height advantage Tom Welling seems to have over John in Smallville,would indicate Tom at at around 6'2.5 - 6'2.75 ( based on this picture).

Do you think they make Tom appear taller in the show?
Would they choose a guy to play the character of Clark's father if he was taller than the guy playing the Clark character?

[Editor Rob: I think they are very similar on the show and angles can and footwear can swing differences a little in either favor.]
Yaspaa said on 28/Feb/08
The top of Rob's head is level with the point of John's nose and it's the same story with Brandon Routh. I don't think John is the full 6'3,generally looking a smidge shorter than 6'2.5 Tom Welling in Smallville. I only see a six inch difference in the picture,I think I'll go with 6'2.25.

[Editor Rob: although I am as near level distance with Routh, but here I am slightly closer than john. Although Schneider was wearing decent nike shox, about 1/4 inch more than me anyway.]
Yaspaa said on 27/Feb/08
Usually seems a tad shorter than Tom Welling, not a tad taller.
anonymous said on 6/Feb/08
brandon routh is 6`2.5. And schneider here looks slightly taller. 6`3 is pretty bang on.
Viper said on 18/Jan/08
Well, he looks 6-2 1/2 max wth Rob.
anonymous said on 18/Jan/08
how do you figure 189 max!?
anonymous said on 17/Jan/08
uhhh... viper, those pictures prove only one thing. That you were dead wrong all along. they prove he is 6`3
AAAA said on 15/Jan/08
True patrick..... he is a big guy
patrick said on 15/Jan/08
John looks 6'3 here as usual. No less than 6'2.5! No way Tom Welling being shorter than him! On the contrary, he always appeared taller in off-show events. Those guys are all really tall and very well built!
So, this pic just should be enough.
Da Man said on 10/Jan/08
I gotta say Vegas, if that line was razor sharp, Rob would be missing significant brain matter in the Schneider and Momoa pics.
AAAA said on 8/Jan/08
Sugar Honey Iced Tea...completely forgot he was wearing shocks, ..... I retract my previous statements. He is dead on with Routh. Nevermind. 189-190. Not a clear 6'3 but close.
Dallas said on 8/Jan/08
I think John Schneider is probably right at 6'4 and Tom Welling is right at 6'3 which accounts for the close to an inch difference in their height. John appears to have like 3 inches on John Glover and Tom Wopat both who are 6'1.
Viper said on 8/Jan/08
So hes 189cm max. Pretty much what Ive been saying all along :)
Vegas said on 8/Jan/08
here are four photos
rob is only up to schneiders nostrils and rob is slightly closer to the camera Click Here

rob and routh, rob is side by side here and leaning ever so slightly, thing to remember is routh has a smallish head, the rocks forehead was much larger Click Here

most peg jimmy smits at 6'3 looks the exact same difference between smits/glenn and rob/schneider Click Here

rob has jason momoa listed at 6'4, based on this pic he would have approx 0.75" on smits and schneider and a little more on routh Click Here

[Editor Rob: pretty much...

routh/me on as near plane, very similar shoe heights, posture is decent for both of us, the lean is v small there.

schneider, yes slightly closer here, he has 1/4-1/3 inch footwear advantage so I think it evens itself. But he has a little lesser posture than Routh.]
Da Man said on 7/Jan/08
I see zero appreciable difference between Routh and Schneider. In both Rob is well above their nostrils (which would be a roughly 6.5" difference) and about 1" below the eyeline. I just played with the pics in paint, and the two look almost exactly the same height.
AAAA said on 7/Jan/08
Well yeah I defn agree that it is almost impossible to tell, but Schneider just looks MARGINALLY taller to me for some reason next to you Rob
AAAA said on 7/Jan/08
Well he looks taller next to Rob than Brandon Routh, who most seemed to agree was 6'2.5. I know the pic with Routh is closer up, but the top of Robs head is close to the tip of the nose, while in Routh's pic Robs head is closer to the middle of the nose. miniscule, but when discussing .25in in heights, then it all matters
And rob appears to be standing without a head tilt, which he had slightly in Rouths pic ( ROB, not harping at all on you BTW, I think both pics are outstanding...keep up the great work).
To sum up my lenghty discourse, Schneider looks taller next to Rob then Routh, and Routh looks 6'2.5 solid next to Rob. IMO Routh is a 189-190 guy, schneider is 190 at least, more 191. I wish I could post pic anaylsis but I just landed from a MISERABLE plane ride and have to get back in the grind for school tommrow. Hope to hear from you all agan.

[Editor Rob: I think it's really close in both to be honest, both hard to tell apart BUT, Routh has better posture, I noticed that about him, John has decent posture but not as good as Brandon.]
Anonymous said on 6/Jan/08
In the pictures with Hasslehoff (assuming he is still 6ft 4in) Schneider looks 6ft 3.5in so 6ft 3in makes complete sense. He also does have good posture.
Anonymous... said on 6/Jan/08
dude im 6'-3" 3/4" i saw him at the event and i met him to get his autograph John was shorter than me by like 2 inches u do the math.... o and when u mentioned johns height was proabably 6-2.5? think again....their shoe heel difference might play a part too....tho not much just a thought
AAAA said on 6/Jan/08
Well the diff here is really close to the Photo Glenn has with Smits. Maybe he is only 190(6'2.75) now, but I feel like he was def 191(solid 6'3) and may have lost a cm. He is close to 50. Whats funny is some places have him at 6'4 or more, even though he has said 6'3 himself or "almost" 6'4
Katie said on 6/Jan/08
Oh, man, I love me some John Schneider. Though if he's still 6'3, then I think that puts Tom at a solid 6'3, too, according to this Smallville promo photo from season 1: Click Here
venus said on 5/Jan/08
I agree, he's 6-2 1/2. That guy's head is up to his nostrils, now if the top of Rob's head was up to his bottom lip, then it would be legit.
Viper said on 5/Jan/08
I still say 6-2 1/2 at most for Schneider.
Danny said on 4/Jan/08
Top of Rob's head is on the same level as Johns nose... Imo 6'2 - 6'2.5
Da Man said on 4/Jan/08
Maybe I'm off here, but I don't see more than 5.5" - 6" max between Rob and John here. What was the footwear in this pic?

my experience is that 98% of all people exaggerate their height....hands down....its rare for me to meet someone that actually gives their true height...I've met people that claim 6'2 and are only an inch or two taller than me...I am 5'10 1/2.

wow 6'3 and 175lbs, he's under weight by 10-20lbs.
anonymous said on 2/Jan/08
he was a tad taller than tom welling, i guess he is 1.90 max, he seems to have 15cms on that guy in the pic 1.73 plus 15 : 1.88, but he is not straight so 1.90 must be
TheMan said on 1/Jan/08
Yeah deffently 6,3 is an inch over welling who if anything is a good 6,2.
OutBenchThis said on 1/Jan/08
Doesn't look any bigger than 6'2.5"
5'6 and 21 said on 1/Jan/08
I think it's the first time they have an exact height for a star. I think John is 6'3 I have all the Smallville season in dvd and honestly there are very good shots where you can see Tom and John very cleary and I think John got 1 inch over Tom. My guess is John: 6'3 and Tom Welling: 6'2 or 6'2.5. That would be the exact barefoot measure to me.
RobertJ said on 1/Jan/08
nice pic Rob, did Routh look taller when you met him or Schneider? Or were they pretty much the same height

[Editor Rob: both are real hard to tell apart. Actually someone sent me a routh photo showing him looking nearer 6ft 3.5!]

Cool picture rob. Looks a big man and proves tom welling as being a tall like him
patrick said on 3/Dec/07
Keith, that is an old debate and never Tom looked so short, even in the first season! It has been said many times taht Tom had to look younger and really the son of John at the time, not as "Superman". A lot of us read or heard co stars or producers of the show explaining Tom ahd to play bare foot or in slippers while the others had (and still have) to play over boxes, even platforms. I have the entire show in DVD and, loving it and being rather accurate in watching it, I can assure you that except , for example, in the hospital scene, Tom does not look shorter. As tall as John and sometimes taller, yes.
Tom shorter than 6'2 is simply ridiculous and Jhon is obviously not less r=than 6'2.5 even though I think he is 6'3.
Keith said on 1/Dec/07
We can clearly see that in oldie Smallville episodes. John Schneider it's taller than Tom Welling's 6'2. It's Like at least 2 inches taller than Tom. So, either Tom is shorter than 6'2 or John it's taller than what Glenn or Rob are saying.
patrick said on 29/Nov/07
I agree with Dawn of course. Tom W. does not look short for all that. I see int the Dukes episode always 3 inches between them, not less;That after all, less than 8 cm and it is not that huge; just legitimates the fact "John is clearly taller"; deal.
Jason said on 28/Nov/07
''or its more likely you were not close enough to make an accurate estimation like many others such as nathan jones, big show, matt morgan, jbl and the rest...''



This wasn't during the show. It was outdoors in the wee hours, where I was right next to him.
Dawn said on 28/Nov/07
I just got done watching 13 episodes of The Dukes of Hazzard. He is at least 6'3" no doubt. He always looked taller than Tom Wopat, and they both wore cowboy boots. Besides, he himself says he's 6'3".
Vegas said on 28/Nov/07
Jason says on 28/Nov/07
Yeah, but some of them it's not like I tried to make an exact estimate. I changed my mind after seeing his listing and looking at photos where I thought he just didn't physically look as tall as he seemed. After considering that, I would say it's likely he was in boots (he was dressed up)/me over-estimating

or its more likely you were not close enough to make an accurate estimation like many others such as nathan jones, big show, matt morgan, jbl and the rest...
patrick said on 28/Nov/07
DaMan, I saw at least I think, every photo ever made with Tom and John. I admit, of course, that some of them show Tom slightly smaller but, frankly more often taller and, in this case, always more clearly than the contrary. John told it at least two times (please, don't ask me when or where! I can't remember but I am sure of that!). Let's say they are the same...Tom could not be less than 6'2.5, in any case.
John always loooks taller in his other shows; In diagnostic murder where he embodies a very nasty but suave guy, he towers the son of Dick Van Dyke who is reasonably listed at 6'1, what he seems to be.
Jason said on 28/Nov/07

Jason says on 27/Nov/07
My impression of him was 6'1 1/2'' ... but, retrospectively, I would say he's probably 6'0 1/2'' or 6'0

what retrospectively made you change your opinion, a photo, viper's opinions, something else.

meeting a wrestler in person is the best way to determine height, not photos, videos or other people comments attempting to sway you; Jason you chop and change too much in retrospect, makes me feel you are not getting as close to these guys as you claim..... hence height estimations are a waste of time

It's far from scraping the bottom of the barrel; when I saw the Major Brothers billed as 6'1'', that was enough to tell me I was off.
Da Man said on 26/Nov/07
I wish I could find them, AAAA. I posted them I guess about a year ago now on Tom's page. There was a whole cast shot, and a shot of Tom and John standing shoulder to shoulder.

DaMan. could you post some of those pics, I'd like to see them
Viper said on 26/Nov/07
"you guys; still trying to pick holes in my estimations after nearly two years, lol,"

Its probably because your estimations can be wrong!!! Nobody is 100 percent perfect judging height in person. And saying that Mick is a legit 6-3 barefoot is wrong, even If you thought that.
Da Man said on 26/Nov/07
Patrick, have you seen the season 1 Smallville premiere (event/party) pics with Tom and John? John was a bit taller than Tom in all of them. Personally, I trust photos like those more than Smallville photos. Even though there are numerous Smallville photos that show the two at the same height, or even with John a bit taller. I realize there are Smallville promotional photos and screen caps that show Tom taller than John, I think they are a bit suspect however.
Da Man said on 26/Nov/07
There is no more than .25" difference there and, as usual, Foley's posture isn't the greatest. Footwear is basically equal. These two could very easily be the same height.
Vegas said on 26/Nov/07
you guys; still trying to pick holes in my estimations after nearly two years, lol, quoting WWE.com listings is scraping the bottom of the barrel :P

the foley i met in april 2006 was 6'3 standing tall, quoting wwe.com or telling me i am wrong ain't gonna chance my mind, you guys were not there that night standing next to foley, but 4 of my friends and my brother were and they will back me up 100%. you can look at all the photos you want but i ain't gonna chance my mind unless i meet him again and he appears shorter in person!! i don't care if you don't believe me, just don't keep bringing it up time and time and time again; there are far more bizarre in person sightings on this website than foley at 6'3.....
Jason said on 26/Nov/07
The WWF used to bill Foley as 6'2''. I remember when he debuted as Mankind, they had him as 6'2'' 260lbs, but then immediately inflated it to 287lbs, where it stayed ever after. You'd think if they padded his weight, they wouldn't under-bill his height...
patrick said on 26/Nov/07
Simple: John does not "look" taller than Mick..."he damn' is" and he IS shorter than Tom Welling, sorry, it is, once more, obvious...I don't care about "the first seaons" and I prefer to refer to the other sand mainly, to the "off shot" pics wher Tom always, I mean always, looks clearly taller...as John admitted it at least twice. And I think John if not bragger at all is not particularly modest about his height either.
John looks 6'3 except in that incredible pic with Hasselhoff! I totally agree AAAA about that: I always saw him very tall as at least Tom Selleck (6'4). I even thought he was a bit more. I would have sworn John being shorter by an inch! He is visibly not. No less than 6'3...
Viper said on 25/Nov/07
Vegas, Rob was there and he even admits that John looked taller. Mick is not 6-3.
AAAA said on 25/Nov/07
Whoa!? those pics with hasselhoff are pretty crazy. He has always looked at least 6'4 to me, and even a little taller in knight rider. yet john seems right there with them. I can't supersize the pics, so I am just oing by the tumbnails, if anyone can blow them up it'd be great to see them in better detail
Vegas, I think on the shoe page rob has profiled both shoxs and tims. Foley's tims look to be he 1.5in type. There are some other tims with a heel even more pronounced than a cowboy boot, upwards of 2in I have seen without measuring, but Foley's aren't those kind. If I remeber the the shox's on the sneaker page are said to be 1.41in, so the difference is <.1 in advantage. I agree that the footwear dif is negligible.
Side note, Foley has stubby arms.
Rob, I look foward to seeing that pic. May help to come closer to unveiling the mystery of Welling as well.
Vegas said on 25/Nov/07
yet he looked 6'3.5-6'4 standing next to 6'5 hillbilly jim in a video i posted, which you conveniently swept under the carpet. viper you question my estimations every chance you get (especially foley) but you quote mr mexican mentor all the time like its the truth and he provided not one grain of evidence to support his claims......

schneider is wearing 1.5" shox there, those boots of foleys are giving 1.5", cowboy boots only give 1.8", no way foleys are giving more than cowboys, lol. if foley was to stand fully tall he would be at least as tall as schneider, he is barely a 1/4" shorter there and schneider looks as tall as hasselhoff, hey maybe hasselhoff is <6'2 as well ;)

foley looked shorter than orton because he was leaning badly as he does all the time, like this Click Here and him standing straight
Viper said on 25/Nov/07
I guess that makes Randy Orton 6-6 then, lol. Id say Foley has a half an inch in footwear to counter the very small lean anyway. Face it, Foley is not 6-3.
Vegas said on 25/Nov/07
foley is leaning to the right there too that must be taken into account (foley leaning, say its not true) look at the position of his eyes/mouth he is losing about half an inch Click Here anyway since when are we going to ascertain foleys height from a photo, lol, he looked 4" shorter in a photo i saw a while back with orton

btw viper, Schneider has 3" on Wopcat not 2" Click Here and he is the same height as david hasselhoff Click Here seems someone was too quick to downgrade a person again, lol
Viper said on 25/Nov/07
Well, that throws Vegas's 6-3 claims for Mick Foley out the window, LOL. The lowest Mick could be is 6-1 1/2. John is nothing under 6-2. John is at least 6-2 1/2 there If Mick is a full 6-2. I still think John is 6-2ish, but not quite a full 6-3.
Brah said on 24/Nov/07
Nice pic Rob! Schneider is only marginally taller than Foley. Scneider in Nike Shox and Foley in boots, so the footwear looks about even.
AAAA said on 24/Nov/07
what do you think of the height comp between Foley and Schnider. the footwear should be pretty close, with a .1 to .2 advantage to foley. shocks give 1.41in and those boots give like 1.5-1.7 in depending on the exact timberland model
AAAA said on 24/Nov/07
Great pic rob

[Editor Rob: cheers, next year I'll put up my pic with John. Very nice guy incidentally..

He did look damn near 6ft 3 to me, he did have 1/4 inch more with those shox...but Schneider did near an inch on Foley, they had meeted a minute before and he did appear bigger.

footwear probably identical there.]

John has looked a bit taller than Tom in a few event/party photos. There was one photo where the two were shoulder-to-shoulder, the exact same distance from the camera and John looked .25" - .5" taller than Tom. That was the most conclusive pic I've seen with the two.

OK, let's say he's not lying Viper but slightly exagerating in claiming 6'4 but not in saying "almost". He's really tall and not less than "almost 6'3" for sure.

I watch alot of Dukes of Hazzard reruns and looking at John then he seems to be about 6 foot 4.5 but on the show he wears big cowboy boots so he is most likely around 6 foot 2-3 and Jude Stringfellow John was 12 in 1972 he was born in 1960 and lied about his age to get on the Dukes he even admits it on interviews on the DVD seasons.
Viper said on 26/Apr/07
Well, the man is listed at 6-3 everywhere, and he flat out does not look like a 6-4 man. So yes, Id say he was lying. Jason, I remember you telling me about that.
Kal-El said on 26/Apr/07
i agreed with you Viper on that, almost every celebs lie about their height(people in general puts an inch, sometimes 2 inches and sometimes 3 inches!) but some celebrities who are in fact tall doesn't need to lie about it. I guess most short and average celebrities(and normal people)lie about their height.But like i said before i think John doesn't need to lie about his height.
Viper said on 26/Apr/07
Well, celebs lie about their height all the time.
Jason said on 26/Apr/07
Viper, one of my former best friends is friends with Schneider and used to go to his house and hang out with him. I lost contact with her in 2003 though ... really kicking myself that that happened lol! Her husband is 6'5'' so we could have really nailed this one otherwise...
Kal-El said on 26/Apr/07
In my personal case i am 6ft2 and i don't need to lie about my height. For example, if i was a famous actor like John is, i wouldn't raise my height on an interview like you suppose that John Schneider did . Don't you think that Viper?
Viper said on 25/Apr/07
No way is Schneider 6-4. Hes listed at 6-3, so hes not over that even. I personally peg him at 6-2 1/4.
Kal-El said on 24/Apr/07
On one interview he said he was 6'4, why a tall person like him would lie about his height? He doesn't need to.
patrick said on 13/Apr/07
Very nice words Jude! I love to read such human testimonies.
Even i did not have my own opinion, i would be inclined to trust someone like you more than "others". I happen to agree with you and not only about his 6'3 height but regarding his heart; This guy is how Tom Welling described him, a real "father", he "is" J.Kent and that is some compliment! Write again if you can Jude!
Jude Stringfellow said on 17/Mar/07
I met John in St. Mountain, GA in 1972. He was 6'3" then at 19, and I doubt he's grown or shrunk. Saw the man again several times in 1981-1983...hotter, yet very very hot - and still 6'3". Gorgeous smile, big heart, gotta love the man for his walk with Jesus! Hi John! (1/2 a velvet heart)

does anyone have a photo of the kind of boots john schneider wears in the duke of hazzard?

Yes, Tom WELLING is 6'3 (or more?) but Tom Wopat, i think is 6'; not less unless he always wears lifts!
patrick said on 11/Dec/06
Yes...if Tom Wopat is 5'11 and everybody knows he is not!
I think Tom is 6' and so, Jhon is what he look like: 6'3;
Always the same method considering in shrinking everybody who could prove an actor is taller than you estimate him; That is not really honest and in philosophy, it is called "reductionism".
Viper said on 11/Dec/06
Looks around 6-2 there with Wopat.

John Schneider is 6'4". I found that out from John himself.
mc said on 10/Nov/06
Well today John Schneider was in town for a charity event, he did an autograph line (he stood the whole time) and showed his movie (Collier & Co) with the proceeds going to charity. I was in line a long time watching him. At first I thought he was not very tall (about 6'1") he was in ordinary sneakers. But, it turns out he was just slouching a lot. When someone tall would have their picture taken with him, he would stand up strait and he was 6'3" easy. When someone shorter was with him he would slouch and lean in to not look so tall. He was standing up strait, but normal with the tall people not standing on one leg, or trying to be closer to the camera, etc. He did not have to worry about his height, or try to fake it. Instead you could tell it was the opposite, he was slouching not trying to stand out most of the time like someone conscious of their towering over people.
patrick said on 18/Oct/06
In the midst of the street? Anyway, the point is "why": that would be interesting to know the reason why the director did this and why, everytime it is about Tom's height, "something" seems making things out of focus;
The proof: "this" very site ! Besides Sly's and Tom Cruise's ones, no other sounds cause as much as controversy; That's a "sociological phenomenon" !
Even in an episode of the second season, Chloe tells Clark "from your 6 foot...WHATEVER" ; Why not saying the real height if not to keep it in the haze of "mystery" and make people talk !!!
Because that is exactly what is happening; it's never clear; For me it is but it is my opinion based upon my own perception and some photos more than statements;
i take the John's one about his 6' friend as much more valid than fancy ones i read here! Do you know that in many other sites devoted to Smallville or not, Tom is most often evaluated as being 6'3 and 6'4?
Frankly, i hope to be able to get to SV set next year since a 7th season is probable to end it in order to judge by myself! If i am possibly able to get close to them!

when you guys refer to jared not being on a box that is ludacris, if he wasnt it would make him 6'7, secondly jared at age 21 was described at 6'2 so unless you grow after 21 which doesnt happen to ofter than he is 6'2.. tom is shorter than jared but not by much id say he is 6'1.5 and as for john hes a touch over 6'2, when you put shoes onto all these heights, it appears to be the height that each actor descibes themselves as..

OK, i know it is not usual to call on Editor Bob as referee butthere, frankly, Mr. Viper's obvious bad faith NEEDS someone being judge and unbiased, capable to read each one's arguments.
I repeat: when it's about Jared, he is NOT, he CANNOT be upon a platform (even though that is so easy to see that his pals are also on it!) BUT, when it's about Tom: he is on a slope or on a box or JS is barefoot or what else?
Mr Bob, "you be the judge" not about J Schneider's and thus, Tom's height but about the credibility of Chibifibi's and "I" (and John about Tom's article)arguments.
In advance, thanks.

Well, its still inconclusive evidence since you cant see their feet. And to be perfectly honest it truly does look that way to me.
patrick said on 6/Oct/06
WHAT DI I TELL YOU ?
Of course, Tom HAS to be on a slope while Jared CANNOT BE!
That is really too funny! What slope ? And above all, WHY a slope ?
Disheartening, discouraging and finally hopeless !
Viper652 said on 5/Oct/06
Actually it looks like Welling is standing on a slope, but you really cant tell since you cant see their feet.
patrick said on 5/Oct/06
To Chibifibi: THANKS A LOT ! At last, someone who piked up the picture i am talking about FOR MONTHS!!!
So, what do Mrs Viper and Anonymous will object this time:
1/ Tom is upon a box
2/John is kneeling
3/ John actually is 5'11
4/ Annette O'Toole is actually a dwarf munchkin
5/ that happens to be a "trick" and Tom is not "really" there
6/ we are all blind and do not see that Annette is effectively much taller BUT disavantaged with angle shot
7/ it happens to be a very good drawing made by order from me to an artist JUST to allow me to be right
So, that photo gets matched to what is sooo easily visible and confessed by John many times.
I confess being looking forward to read the "irrefutable" arguments that won't fail to present;
That photo is taken in front of them: no special angles, no special position, no anamorphosis due to wide angle objective. A plain, very common right snapshot.
Bravo again Chibifibi !

Well, if you look at this picture
Click Here
It looks like even if Scheider were to be completely upright, Welling might have about a qaurter inch or possible a bit more on him. Just by looking at Welling's proportions in comparison to Scheider's, it does seem like Welling is taller. Also notice the proportions in this picture, I know the posture is different, but still Click Here

Schneider never looked 6-3 on the Dukes of Hazard. 188-189 Max.

i am in any way obsessed with anything (no feel offended) but i am VERY interested in a fact i already wrote about here: how strange it is to notice how THIS guy creates such a polemic !
i ran through many other actors listed in here and i never got its macth;
i am sure Tom would be very amazed with all these questions about his height !
the point is even in other sites it seems that that question comes back too very often; some saying Tom is "giantlike", others saying he is almost normal;
Only Sylvester Stallone and Tom Cruise seem to be also likewise "in question";
I feel personaly that interesting; that reveals how "we" interpret what we watch; "i" see differently than "you" and others see; here is something to be noticed; I magine how crucial it is if we were witnesses in a "case" !
frankly, i and all people around me, see him as i describe below; i do not say i am right but just tha's the way i see him; maybe he is an ET able to create images in each of our minds (joke);
it is true that some people look taller than they really are; for Ted Dawnson is one of them; i saw him at Paramount studios; he was close to me and seemed very big and tall; that come from his long long head (presumably);
It's amusing how many people are mistaken about Sean Connery's height; he ALWAYS is stated at much more than he is; yet, he's always a bit slouching; that comes from something "in him"; some guys are "tall within themselves";
question of "soul" i presume; Here is what i am interested in; Rock Hudson looked like a giant more than (young) Clint Eastwood whom is not a man to be neglicted; Clint is a great soul for me; so, what all of that, all these subjective impressions are depending on ? I DO NOT KNOW !
The fact is John and Tom went well together; they had a touch of magic as if they really were father and son; That's, besides, what says John Schneider (who claimed being a bit smaller than Tom in an interview ! ouch !!)
sf said on 27/Sep/06
My "Superstars" '83 book has him at 6'4", for whatever that's worth. And it also says, "When John isn't working on his TV series or singing on various TV specials, he keeps himself busy writing music, playing tennis, and reading horror stories." Good to know...

Oops, I meant to say Welling is shorter. LOL.

All kidding aside though, I seriously think both are the same height. Even if your analysis is right I wouldn't put them both over 6'3", because Welling's model card listed him at 6'2" (how can he be much taller then that?!? lol). And seriously even if they manipulate the effects Welling still cannot be much taller (no more than an inch, just look at proportions). I would give Welling 6'3", Schneider maybe a bit less after all he is getting a bit old now. If you're right on the DVD comment then that explains the recent changes in height.

I don't think we can ever know for sure. But I'm positive Welling is no more then 6'3" and I personally think he's 6'2". Maybe a tad under 6'3" for Schneider. So Schneider 6'2" and Welling 6'2.5" tops.

patrick you are obsessed with Welling and Schneider to do all that crazy stuff. And I still don't believe you.

I still think Schneider is shorter and there is nothing you can do about it.
patrick said on 21/Sep/06
NO, no and no again! Re-read what i wrote: in few scenes he appears shorter; besides, it's explained on a DVD bonus: "the" father should have to be "taller"; they then changed their mind;
I am re-watching all the seasons and, knowing very well the plots, i can take the time toexamine accurately the picture, frozen it all the time;
I bet my month salary on not only you just cannot see tom smaller but in most cases clearly taller than his "father"!
Everybody at home sees it because...that doesn't need nothing but not being blind!
It has been said so long and so many times that J S was taller that became a truth; I never bought it andI AM NOT ALONE (by far) NOTICING THAT!
A tip: when watching a photo or a still shot (dvd), look at the lines of perspective AND the SIZE of their respective heads, the height of their respective shoulders; sometimes a guy looks taller (or shorter) BUT the examination of the proprtions reveal that it's a play of perspective effects;
Believe me: i am a drawer and practicing that allowed me not to make a lot of mistakes!
But, nevertheles, check the DVD bonus where they talk about how they manage to transform the set to get the effects they wanted;
Check out the google picture o ftom and John and Annette where they pose and where all is revealed! soooo esay to do!

What do you mean never? John appears taller well into season 4 and even in season 5.
patrick said on 18/Sep/06
NEVER! Tom just a couple times appears smaller and precisely in the firts episodes of the first season ! Clark is then at the hospital;i am quite sure he was shot barefoot; apart from that, as John said on sept 13rd and Anonymous on august 7th, Tomm is clearly taller than the great John Schneider; it is so obvious and just needs to be checked out, to read the DVDs and "pause" now and then; moreover, John always does what Brandon Routh says having done in SUPERMAN returns: he pull and cranes his head up and backwards, what he didn't do in the other shows he was in before;
Nevertheless, John Schneider is clearly a legit 6'3, not less; seeign him in these other shows shows always him much taller and often bigger than anyone else.

In season 1 thru 4, John appeared taller.

Now in 5, Tom appears taller at times.

Unless Tom's still growing in his late 20's, something's fishy.
Viper652 said on 14/Sep/06
Well, usually John is taller tahn Welling.
john said on 13/Sep/06
I don't think so Viper652. I watched an episode of SV just last night on DVD and paused more than once and each time it was clear to both my wife and I that Tom was taller. Both times they were juxtaposed and Tom had the slight edge in height.
