he was mutch shorter than nick nolte in an old movie from early 80s. He may have been 180-181 and nolte closer to 184

Rob, how tall did he look on the Big Bang Theory? Between 5ft 9 and 10?
Editor Rob
He's looking weak 5ft 10 range, with poor posture even as short as 5ft 9-9.5

Agreed with most of the comments. Never over 5'11" (6' in shoes) at his peak. On his current show, and other things I've seen him in recent years, looks under 5'10", maybe as low as 5'9".

-- Judd Hirsch's Height is 5ft 9in (175cm) --
-- Peak Height was 5ft 11in (180cm) --

Never really looked a 6fter back in the day, but nowadays barely 5'9"!
Maybe im guessing his peak with a generous HT estimate?

Wow I expected to come find Judd at 5'9
peak and 5'7 today. I can't see him ever being 5'11.75 let alone 5'10.5. I don't see it at all. Rob you need to lower the guess heights.

I thought Judd looked closer to 5'10.5"...maybe 5'11" at his peak. Today, I think he looks around
5'9.5"-5'10"

He looks a lot like Tom Jones. Yeah maybe not quite 6ft peak
Arch Stanton said on 3/Aug/16
Is is possible he wore lifts? I would never have guessed him as high as 6 ft in Running on Empty!
Arch Stanton said on 3/Aug/16
@Rob, are you sure on 6 ft?? I thought he looked pretty average range in Running on Empty, similar to River Phoenix. Worth adding a photo and NUMB3RS and Dear John and more films like Running on Empty, Ordinary People, Independence Day, A Beautiful Mind,, Teachers and Without a Trace. Didn't look a nice fellow, had a seedy vibe I thought.
Editor Rob: could have been a 5ft 11.5 range guy rounding up to 6ft.

rob he could be another one, who belongs (at peak) to the "182 cms club"?
also recently, in a beautiful mind, he look as tall as Russell Crowe
[Editor Rob: yeah he could have been that range...he looked a few inches under 6ft in recent years.]

i've checked also that in 1996 (he was 60) he was as tall as (or even shorter) than Margaret Colin with a normal heels on, that maybe give 2-3" max: Click Here

he needs a downgrade?

5'11.5" peak and 5'10 are spot on...

One of the more generous listing on this sight. Looks about 2 inches taller than 5'7" Tony Danza. Here he is with 6'0" Tom Cavanagh
Click Here
5'9" prime.

I just saw Judd Hirsch on an episode of SVU. He is pretty close to 6'0.5 Christopher Meroni. I say that Judd Hirsch is about 6'0 even.

He looked no taller than Eddie Murphy in Tower Heist (?!).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/11
I'd say he's under 5"11 at this point.

He appears to slouch a bit which lowers one's perceived height.

I saw Hirsch with Ben Vereen after seeing "I'm Not Rappaport" in 2002. He was in low loafers and looked near 5'11" when he straightened up (I'm 5'11.5"). Vereen isn't very tall - maybe 5'9" An awesome show, BTW.

yes,late 1998 or early 1999.
ras said on 23/Sep/07
When was that taken? Where you 5 ft 8 already Glenn?
Editor Rob said on 23/Jul/06
Here is Glenn with the Hirsch.

On Law & Order he looked 2-3 inches shorter than 6'1" Sam Waterston. So I'd say ~ 5'10 - 5'10.5" these days.

[Editor Rob: feasible that he has lost some height, or maybe succumbed to older man posture aswell! I remember that Jerry guy on that show seemed to by his latter days have baddish posture]
