As a fellow 5'7.5" guy, it's good to know that the Badass Mike Ehrmantraut , my favourite character of Breaking Bad/BCS is of my height. Makes me bit less insecure

Funny to see him pop up rewatching Gremlins, he was rather less authoritative back then lol. I think he's possibly heading for a low 5'7" with age but could look average with the shorter the average BCS and BB casts, which were short enough to make Cranston look relatively tall at times.

I'd reckon he stands 5'6.75" today. 5'8" flat back in his prime.

Rob, how tall do you think Ken Wahl is?
Was one of the other leads in Wiseguy. Not in the limelight anymore but he was a well-known actor in the 80's-90's. He's been listed 6ft in places.
Editor Rob: not seen enough of him really.

Actually having rewatched Breaking Bad I think he could have been near a solid 5'8" still and edged Aaron Paul most of the time.

@Editor Rob: How tall do you think Mark Margolis is/was? (plays Hector Salamanca). He's 76 years old now so he's probably lost a little bit.

Big G maybe would agree with you? :)
I think even him, he would be more reasonable than you, though!
And i never insult people, i don't need to!
You never post pictures or videos, you just take a wild guess in every page!!!
You want to troll? Go to the general height page... That's the place for you ;)

Because more people agree with me but more importantly I don't insult other posters unlike you...and sorry but just about every single page is polluted with your pathetic rants.

Stop downgrading? Where did I downgrade here?
I did say i can't say anything about his peak but on BB and BCS he generally can look anywhere in 5'7-5'7.5 range, at times even almost 5'8! I said you can argue he looks just 5'7 flat at times but i wouldn't go lower than that! This is not called downgrading, but discussion :)
The fact is... that you should stop UPGRADING everyone! Almost every page is spammed with your silly estimates!
I wonder why Rob still allows you to post on this site...

Stop downgrading Andrea. He did look around 5ft8 range in Wiseguy...today a bit under

Thank you, Rob! I can't say anything about his peak but 5'7.5 is about right! You can certainly make an argument for 5'7 flat at times, though! He can look near 2 inches smaller than Bob but again it's not impossible that Bob is 176...
Editor Rob: he definitely looks a guy who was taller in his 30's compared to recent years.

Looked similar height to Aaron Paul and Giancarlo Esposito on Breaking Bad as I recall, in stills Paul actually looks to edge him. These guys and Hank give Cranston a comparatively tall presence on that show, Badger is the only major character I recall that was a genuinely tall guy in that cast.
