I think 5'10.5" would be fine for this guy. Although maybe these days he doesn't walk as proud, given the disgrace.
Editor Rob
He may well be walking smaller in recent months.

"American actor and singer best known for playing Jamal on TV series Empire."

Mugshot makes it easy, his head is below the 6ft brick mark on the wall while wearing shoes

@Michael t, It must be because of that horrific attack. Those horrible attackers damaged his back and he lost some height. I heard one of them was Hitler

I think he has been cut down a bit

Rob what do you think of this pic? This has to be more than a 2 inch difference between him and Obama right? Jussie is closer to the camera as well. Pretty clear he’s at least a half inch away from 5’11
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have thought so...Obama has a high eyelevel in general.

He looks 5’10 to me. Clearly about 3.5 inches shorter than Byers and around 2 inches shorter than Terrence Howard in basically every photo.

Rob please do Akeem aka Yazz the greatest aka Byshere Gray looks like he’s in the 5:8 range to me what you think

Met him in person. He's much shorter than I expected. He's 5'8''-5'9'' max.

@Rob,

some more evidence with 6'1.5" Trey Byers:

Byers even has a more relaxed posture in these shots than Jussie, and this is still more than a 2.5" inch difference. Jussie is really much closer to 5'10" than 5'11".

@Rob,

After seeing him look quite a few inches shorter than talkshow host Larry Wilmore, last night, who is 6'2" tops and probably though closer to 6'0", I'm convinced this listing is a bit too high. I think he's closer to a flat 5'10" as he was also around the same height as Rory Albanese, who is the executive producer of Larry Wilmore's show and sometimes a panelist. Rory is nothing over 5'10" himself from what I can gather. And, then there is this recent photo from Jussie's own instagram page with a 6'0" Terrence Howard:

From what I can gather he's not more than 5'10.5", and more likely closer to a flat 5'10" than an afternoon/evening 5'11". He MIGHT be 5'11" first thing out of bed. Can you take another and harder look at him? This will also force the reevaluation of Aldis Hodge, who he is pictured with recently where the difference does not look the nearly two inches the two are currently listed.

Editor Rob: Hodge clears over six foot easily in person. 5ft 10.5-11 range is arguable for Jussie...that's a kind of range I thought on second look could be possible.

He might be a little bit below this. Really hard to say.
