Here he is with 5'8" Mark Wahlberg. You guys be the judge of this one. Mark looks to be in some thickly-soled gym shoes, though:

Saw him in person at a "Hustle & Flow" screening. He was an inch shorter than Taryn Manning...who was wearing heels.

Manning is listed as 5'2"(!) on IMDB.

That puts John at 5'4". He's a very tiny guy.

Also remember, that he once dated Tyra Banks and she of course made him like look like an elf when she wore her heels.
