Peak height was 6ft 5 ¼ (196.2 cm)

225?? Look nearer 280 in the top photo with Rob.
Vexacus said on 14/May/20
Tallest Jason ever. About 6'7 in Freddy vs Jason.
said on 17/Apr/20
Rob, what would you say your shoe height is in your photo with ken? 5'9 range?
Just over 5ft 9
Jkiller said on 5/Mar/20
Peak was 6'5 and a half for sure, nowadays 6'5, don't think hes lost that much.

Hi Rob from Ayr. Love your video's, I've got a bit of a weird height fettish. Would like to be taller, same height as my younger brother, 6ft 2_but I'm 5'11" & an even 6ft in my Adidas superstars or Nine Roche 2. he calls me wee man lol 😅😄. So Anyway back to Ken Kirtzinger, he's a big guy,towering over you Rob, definitely looks a legit 6ft 5, in Freddy Vs Jason he wore platform boots, giving him an extra 3 inches, towering over Robert Englund who I think is 5'9".
I just realised I said a year ago I finished a short 2-minute video for him...but it was never put up.
I don't know what the heck happened, but I will make sure to put it up in a week or so.
At 5ft 11 in Ayr, yer definitely not a wee man!
Nik J Ashton said on 20/Jan/20
This is what I call a towering!
berta said on 20/Jan/20
peak was probably 196,5 ( he could look 197-98 many times) i remember a scene in Jason takes Manhattan, he made kane hodder look small and kane was maybe 188-189 peak and probably used lifts even back then. todat i Think he is 195 still.
Danimal said on 7/Jan/20
Ken was 6'5.5" at his peak (late 80's).
said on 30/Dec/19
Maybe in peak height was 6ft5.5 if you considerer even Robert englund had thicker boots
said on 24/Dec/19
I show you a funny video between Robert Englund and ken back 2003..
How tall he looks ken with Robert? In this video seems even in my opinion over 6ft5 flat guy
He could look a comfortable 6ft 5 back then, though I don't know if he had thicker boots on
said on 23/Dec/19
How tall is if I get to the tip of the nose? 5ft10 range?
Somewhere around nose area yeah
said on 23/Dec/19Click Here
Why you gave him 6ft5 1/4 if he’s shorter than 6ft5 1/8 challnger? Even considering that you and the challanger were barefoot and ken in the pic with you is in footwear advantage
A stuntman near 50 will likely have lost a fraction over the years.

Rob This is the page for height of garry robbins
Alex Katch said on 10/Dec/19
Another tall man from canada was garry alan robbins who was billed 7ft 5in but he was really 7ft 1in, i saw his real height on google books
Nik said on 24/Aug/19
@ Rob - That's great, thanks!
He is at least 6'4.5"!
said on 31/Jul/19
@ Rob - A height chart would be ace!
One day in the future I will do a height chart video clip for him.
Hopping hopper said on 29/Jul/19
6-5 no less.
said on 20/Jun/19
Rob, is there any chance of Ken still stretching up to 195cm for a measurement?
In 2019 I think the current listing is still likely, but maybe 10 years ago he was still 6ft 4.75-5 range
Nik said on 9/Jun/19
This is a wonderful back-to-back photograph of Rob and Ken Kirzinger! I sure can understand the average vote of 6'4.82" (27 votes!)
179cm guy said on 1/Jun/19
High eye level and short legs for a 6'5 guy.
PetersonBruno190cm said on 11/Apr/19
Derek Mears: 195.0cm
Ken Kirzinger: 196.5cm
Kane hodder: 188.5cm
K.A 188 said on 9/Apr/19
This man has a very long torso, his legs aren not much longer than Rob.
said on 11/Mar/19
Did he looked over 6'5 in person ,or he already was down to 6'4.5 range when you first met him ?
He was still pretty close to 6ft 5, but he was in a kind of cat boot, so had a fraction more footwear than me. But with a tall stuntman, by 50's I think it is likely to lose some height.

Where's the short video?
It's in a queue, sometimes in march
said on 25/Feb/19
Whoa... That's a weird upgrade. Rob, what made you think Ken Krizinger was 6'5.25" at peak?
I was doing a short video 2 days ago for him (it's in the schedule for mid march) and thought the .25 figure seemed to specific to have been pulled out of thin air. Although not a direct quote, I've a feeling he probably did come out with it.
Jdubbz 6'4.5" said on 23/Jan/19
Gonna revise my estimate to 6'4.5-6'4.75. His head isn't quite touching the 6'5 line, so with the quarter inch advantage he'd probably be in the weak 6'5 range.
Bobby said on 25/Nov/18
He's probably a fraction more than 6'4.5 because his head is just about touching the 6'5 line on the mugshot with the footwear advantage.
Zampo said on 20/Nov/18
Looks a 6'4.75 with the footwear advantage. Hence a solid 6'4.5 range I would have thought off the photo.
Jdubbz said on 17/Nov/18
Agent Orange said on 22/Sep/18
Looks solid 6’4.75
Der Titan said on 3/Sep/18
6'5 or just under seems about right
Film Fan said on 24/Jul/18
Everyone seems to think Derek Mears is about an inch shorter than Ken Kirzinger. I guess it is very possible that Derek Mears is 6’ 5” while Ken Kirzinger could have been 6’ 6” at his peak.
Canson said on 15/Jul/18
@Christian: not to Mention Mears isn’t 6’5”
Christian 6'5 3/8
said on 14/Jul/18
Rob, did he have a quarter or half inch footwear advantage?
He had a boot that was over 1 inch, looked like a cat style, so 1/4 inch at least.
Jason man. said on 13/Jul/18
He is definitely over 6"5" In part 8 he had 2 good inches on Jason who at the time was 6"4.
Kyuss101 said on 28/Jun/18
Perfect Jason height
tree said on 17/Jun/18
When Rob took this photo in 2013 he was 6ft5,later he shrunk to 6ft4.5
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 14/Jun/18
Rob met Ken and saw him as 6'4.5", he's not 6'5.5". Even with his footwear advantage he doesn't look that tall next to Rob.
Darth Vader said on 14/Jun/18
Well, he is definitely a bit taller than 6'5" Derek Mears. Kirzinger is already listed at 6'7" in some other websites, so I would give Kirzinger a legit 6'6" as his peak height and he could stand 6'5.5" nowadays.
Nik said on 30/May/18
@ Christian-6'5 3/8"
He may still be north of listed height though IMHI!
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 28/May/18
He had footwear advantage over Rob.
Nik said on 26/May/18
He is probably north of his listed height!
Paddy said on 10/May/18
He is exactly 6'4" 1/2. I met him and estimated him at that, big guy.
Movie Fan said on 27/Apr/18
He actually looked close to 6’ 7” with the lifts he was provided in Freddy Vs. Jason.
Thunderfin said on 22/Apr/18
Damn, huge guy.
Jordan87 said on 14/Feb/18
Agree. He is clearly in no way taller than 6'5. His hair is exactly at 6'5 with ROb, meaning he is the 6'4.5 that Rob Lists him at. 6'5 + is a joke.
berta said on 7/Jan/18
the average guess actually seemsway off here. i think people think of how big he looked in freddy vs jason. he probably had little lifts in becuse he looked 2 meters in that movie.peak relly stron g6 foot 5. maybe 196 excactly today 195
said on 23/Dec/17
Kirzinger had the best size for Jason,he looked a bit bigger than Derek Mears
Though i would like to see Jason being played by a 6ft9 actor,i wonder how would it look on screen.
Robert Mailet could play him Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Dec/17
I would love to see Kane Hodder stand next to this guy and try to claim 6ft5...probably thinks Ken is at least 6ft8
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/17
Might still stretch to 195cm
berta said on 10/Nov/17
196 peak 195 today
bobbyh3342 said on 27/Jul/17
even i agree with you 100% this 245lbs guesses are for the birds this guy is 285 to 300lbs 6 5prime slidding under exactlyasrob has him
even said on 22/Jul/17
the 6 foot 5 claim is legit but its impossible for this guy to be anything under 300 lbs . i know what im saying im a legitimate 5 foot 9
and a legitimate 170 pounds , i never workout but i look quite fit , this dude towers over me and is a lot more corpulent than i am so anything under 270 lbs is bosh .
Jordan87 said on 29/Jun/17
This guy makes Hodder look tiny.
During their Jason Roles.
Ken: 6'5 265
Kane: 6'1 235
berta said on 5/Jun/17
a stuntman like him well ver 50 ( or how old is he?) i think he can have lost near 1 inch, barely 195 today and 196,7 peak
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Apr/17
Damn... Rob, I know this comparison gets old, but could this guy be a bit taller than Joe Manganiello at peak? I would be damned if this guy fell to 6'4" flat.
berta said on 13/Apr/17
i think he is 195 today. 194 seems to short.
said on 27/Jan/17
Rob, is he really at an age where 2cm could be lost?
Editor Rob: half inch certainly, in that field of stuntwork it is inevitable by 50's.
berta said on 23/Jan/17
this guy 15 years back looked a strong 6 foot 5 guy. dont think he was mutch under 196 these day she could fall in to little under 195
Jordan87 said on 15/Dec/16
I notic this to with some other actors. For Example it lists Jason MOmoa at 213 Pounds still. That Dude ( Who is at least 6'3) nowadays weighs 230-235, I'm convinced.
said on 14/Dec/16
Rob states he had thicker Footwear in the Pic but he has to be at least 6'4.25", likely 6'4.5 based on the Pic with Rob. And he ain't no 225 either!! A guy with that build on a 6'4+ Frame is at least 260.
Editor Rob: I'm sure his weight is from his 30's, probably not updated it on his resume!
Baja74 said on 1/Nov/16
I have no doubt he is 6'5". What difference does it make to be arguing over 1/4" here or there? Anything over 6'2" is just TALL. Now I do question his 225lbs. There is no way he in only 225. I know it's listed as such on that Canadian stunt man's website. I think it's a typo. Maybe it meant to say 255? In the scene in Jason takes Manhattan where Jason throws Ken into the mirror, you can clearly see a huge height difference. This is one big boy for sure. And it only makes Kane's 6'3" to 6'5" claim in bigger doubt.
said on 30/Oct/16
Rob what do you think his inseam it doesn't look that much bigger than yours but he has a huge torso
Editor Rob: could be 34 inch range
Michael said on 13/Oct/16
said on 5/Jul/16
What about 6'4 flat or 193,Rob?Considering he was wearing boots...?
Editor Rob: no, he is still over 6ft 4 I'd be sure of it.
Alex said on 23/Jun/16
194 cm, like Manganiello
said on 16/Jun/16
in this photo he still looks 196. 195 at worst. Isnt 194 littel to low. He have a very big head
Editor Rob: I would think he has a fraction of hair, plus he has a fraction more boot than my sneaker.
Jacob said on 11/Jun/16
This guy is a legit 6'5" and 275 pounds. He absolutely drawfed 5'9" 175 pound Robert Englund in Freddy vs Jason.
Johno said on 27/Jan/16
A little extra footwear may have him at 6'4.25 in that picture but 6'4.5 seems fair enough.
Guyster said on 15/Dec/15
Ken looks to be a very legit 6"5, I'm not sure of ken being below that mark, he sometimes gives of a slightly more than 6"5 impression imo.
Swarkcov Dovask said on 21/Nov/15
i'm 6'11" Ken is very shortest.
Big C said on 30/Oct/15
My stepdad was 6'5, he got measured at the hospital at bang on 6'5, today at 50 he looks sub 6'5 if him and Ken met in person I think they will be around the same height.
Patrick said on 19/Jul/15
I stood in front of him today, I was wearing 2.5 inch boots and he towered over me, I am 5'11". He's a 6'5" 1/4 man. I promise you..
mrtguy said on 23/Jun/15
In this shot he looks heavier,but when I searched him up on google he actually looks quite slim. I think his clothing or something is giving an illusion of 300 lbs guy.
joe 193cm night said on 30/Mar/15
Rob, he looked 197cm range in peak height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/15
I'm 238lbs at 6ft3½ and this guy looks like he'd have at least 30lbs on me.
James Edward Crowley said on 13/Mar/15
@Me an out of shape 225 pounds.
cracked said on 18/Feb/15
Legit 6'5....gives little taller impression then Joe Mangianello, who is listed 6'5 too.
IronFist said on 28/Jan/15
I'm 6'5, 260 lbs and I'm telling you I am at least 15 lbs leaner than Ken was in this photo. And I'm not saying he's fat or anything, just that I haven't weighed 225 since high school and I was comparatively bony at that weight. Alexander Gustaffson is 6'5, 220 lbs, for example, and looks to be at least 50 lbs lighter than Ken.
Charlie said on 9/Jan/15
To see this pick, knowing that Rob is 5ft 8 and then beliveve this guy is only 6 ft 3, u gotta be stupid!
said on 30/Dec/14
Rob do you think he would wake up to 6'6?
[Editor Rob: if he shrinks 1.5 inches yes. I believe he is wround 6ft 4.5 today.]
Cristiane said on 28/Dec/14
Ken is the best to play this Movies. He is big and 196. And Joyride 3 he is right person to play Rusty,Nail.He is bigger on this photo before he was atletic in this other videos.
said on 22/Dec/14
@ice Yea I agree. Considering that he looks so bulky despite easily looking a strong 6'5"... (I think he looks 6'6", perhaps he's wearing thicker healed shoes than Rob here) Yea he's def more than only 225 lbs. In another thread with a guy that's 6'5"-6'6" recently, I mentioned I knew someone who's a legit 6'5" barefoot.
This 6'5" guy I know, weighs 260 lbs, and has a build very similar, to how Ken Kirzinger looks above.
[Editor Rob: He's clearly
shorter than a Measured 6ft 5 1/8th guy...
At his peak Ken was 6ft 5, today he's sub 6ft 5...but as a stuntman it's likely in 50's to lose a bit.
Bishop said on 8/Dec/14
Definitely a legit 6'5".
Mike said on 6/Dec/14
Looks a full 6ft 5 but not over.
ice said on 30/Nov/14
6'5 bang on . Im not buying the 225 ilbs thow . He weighs at least 270
said on 29/Nov/14
Would he and Tom Sizemore look similar in height?
[Editor Rob: if you put Tom on an 8-inch box they would]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/14
225lbs is bogus...260lbs is more like it
said on 27/Oct/14
Rob is 6'5.25 impossible for him? Did he look similar to Nonso Anozie in person?
[Editor Rob: I would say he was very near 6ft 5, I wouldn't have guessed him over it.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Oct/14
The type of guy that Kane Hodder describes himself as being
said on 22/Sep/14
Rob, what do you reckon his eye level is?
[Editor Rob: if he's 6ft 5 flat then around 6ft 0.25. He has I think around 10.25 long head, eye-chin around 5.5 inches which is very long, but more 4.75 eyelevel.]
Judd said on 16/Sep/14
Janne said on 9/Sep/14
He is big, but no way is he 225, i am 6'1.25 (186 cm) and weigh 212, this guy is easily 50 lbs heavier if not more!
Big Grandma Atkinson said on 29/Aug/14
Looks about the same size as my son, 6'3" 175 lbs.
Me said on 3/Jul/14
225 lbs! Looks more like 290 lbs
KROC said on 24/Jun/14
Finally a legit 6'5. He looks the same as Challenger 15 and then some. So none that of that 195cm crap for this guy. He's a textbook example of what a REAL 6'5 looks like.
Its true said on 15/Jun/14
I'm 6' 225 and I don't call myself fat. Belly is a lil big but that's it. Yes he's wY over 225!
Lillo thomas said on 6/Jun/14
Yep . No way this guy weight 225 pounds. I don't look like that and I weigh 230 . Over 250 pounds for sure.
Alex 6'0 said on 28/May/14
He does look to edge out joe mangeniello slightly who is more 6'4.75 anyway. Kane may even measure 6'5.25. Its possible. Far as weight in this picture no way 225. 6'5 225lbs is a big guy but its much leaner than how Kane looks in the picture above. 270 range is my guess easily
Arch Stanton said on 19/May/14
He's actually looking similar size to Seagal here, I think this is how Seagal would look in a comparison.
Arch Stanton said on 19/May/14
Yeah I'd say he was easily 250 pounds here.
said on 11/May/14
Rob,that guy is HUGE,how much do u think he weighed when u made that pic with him?
[Editor Rob: maybe 20 pounds more than his 225 resume, that's maybe a few years out of date when leaner. ]
said on 2/Apr/14
Rob,do you think he would edge out Tony Todd.
[Editor Rob: I can't tell, I think they would be very similar and you would have to measure to see who was taller...by mm's probably]
said on 1/Apr/14
Rob,do you think he would edge out Tony Todd.
[Editor Rob: both look like 6ft 5 guys in person, hard to tell who could edge out who.]
said on 7/Jan/14
Rob,do you think he would edge out Joe Manganiello or Tom Hopper.
[Editor Rob: I think he could look more of a solid 6ft 5 walking about and on his own, but I wouldn't be surprised if all measured within 1/4 inch of each other.
the only thing is - Joe can look shorter walking about than Ken or Tom can look.]
said on 25/Dec/13
Rob,do you think he would edge out Tom Noonan.
[Editor Rob: both similar size I'd say.]
Tim said on 29/Aug/13
Solid 6 ft 5
Dave said on 27/Aug/13
he may have weighed about 215-220 when doing the Freddy film as he was quite and athletic looking guy but in no way is he 225 here. Each inch to an adults height depending on frame size and im guessing he is about average would be worth 6lbs, if weight trained that would push up to 8lbs for a medium framed guy, so this guy being 9 inches taller than you rob would likely be about 54lbs heavier than you, but he is rather fat around the middle but with average looking legs so id guess a weight of 260-270 here. Very easy to weigh that much at 6-5.
Lorne said on 27/Aug/13
A legit 6'5. He actually looks a tad taller than joe mangeniello at first glance. Not less than 195cm, at worst a fraction under 6ft5 evening.(though he doesn't look quite this tall with Freddy? Hmm.)
Emil said on 26/Aug/13
225 lbs? Did he lift himself while weighing lol
kreyzig 6ft 3in said on 25/Aug/13
That's clearly a legit 6ft 5.I recon he would be slightly taller than derek mears.
The Creeper said on 22/Aug/13
Looks like a legit 6'5" to me. Ken will be playing Rusty Nail in Joy Ride 3.
Rusty said on 22/Aug/13
i know a guy who is 6'6" 210 and WAY thinner than this guy. in this photo he is 280 minimum perhaps 300 lbs
Jordan said on 22/Aug/13
I have a fame very similar to him and I am 6'0 1/4 and weigh about 221-224 myself. A frame like mine on a man of his height is 270 easy.
avi said on 21/Aug/13
Don't be ridiculous he is 300lbs Maybe 275 but this is a height site not weight
Viper said on 19/Aug/13
I would have guessed 280 pounds for him.
vegas said on 18/Aug/13
he clearly isn't 6'6, he doesn't look over 6'5 in full length back to back photos with robert englund from 10 years ago and he doesn't look over 6'5 in that shot i posted with peter mayhew
Mathew said on 14/Aug/13
Bang on 6'5" is fine for Ken.
Ali Baba said on 14/Aug/13
If he was 6'6" Rob would be under his chin. Ken is looking down a bit so there is some fudge factor there, but he's definitely not as tall as 6'6" and doesn't look over the listed 6'5".
said on 13/Aug/13
Okay yes I guess this guy is 300 lbs. I looked at this other site and they have a photo of this guy Click Here
who is 6'5" and 300 lbs. Ken looks every bit as big.
avi said on 13/Aug/13
@Editor Rob: I think 6ft 5 is fine for him, it's the height he states on his resume and about what he looks.]
Yeah Rob you have advantage of meeting him and judging 1st hand at night he maybe under 6'5 but like Larc says 6'4.7 at worst. But 6'5.5 is too much even though he can look it.
Larc 74in said on 13/Aug/13
Looks every bit of 6'5 to me, at worst he could be 6'4.75 but not under.
Blaze said on 13/Aug/13
dammit rob, I thought that was just you're hair, back to back is deceiving in my eyes lol. I bet if it was side to side it would be clearer. I think he is like 6'5.25 then, which is closer to what 196cm actually is.
said on 12/Aug/13
@Danimal says on 12/Aug/13
no way 6'6. 6'5 tops what are you seeing?? dont you read the other comments especially from Rob? Rob comes 1.5 inch over the chin meaning this guy is lucky to have 9 inches flat on Rob and thats assuming his head is a strong 10.5 inches!!!! i agree he can LOOK 6'6 next to someone at 5'8 but honestly i see 6'5 tops from my experience of seeing tall guys. Rob has this right maybe he should be 6'4.75...
[Editor Rob: I think 6ft 5 is fine for him, it's the height he states on his resume and about what he looks.]
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 12/Aug/13
Ken has near a full head on Rob. Not sure on Ken's head length. 10 inches? Say he has 9 inches on Rob that's puts him at a hair over 6'5 since Rob is actually 5'8 1/8 in most pictures. Rob what was Ken's footwear like? I have seen him in those bigger boots as Jason before
Ali Baba said on 12/Aug/13
I'm over 250 and he's quite a bit bulkier than I am and only about an inch shorter than me. My dad was 6'6" as well and 320 at his heaviest. This guys is over 300.
said on 11/Aug/13
@[Editor Rob: I'm 1.5 inch above his chin...]
Rob i thought so! so how big is his head? 9.5 inches?
if so he is around 6'4.5 which im sure you agree he is more 6'4.5 than a strong 6'5. he can look both!
[Editor Rob: I think he's got no less than 10-inch long head.]
said on 11/Aug/13
I think he's 197cm. I'm 195 and my 5'8 friends reach my a smidge above my chin and I got almost a 10 inch head which is what this man probably had, upgrade rob
[Editor Rob: I'm 1.5 inch above his chin...]
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 10/Aug/13
Wouldn't rule out 6'5.5 either
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 10/Aug/13
6'5 225lb would be much leaner and its still a big guy but he's gotta be at least 280lbs. He does look a strong 6'5
Arch Stanton said on 9/Aug/13
225 pounds? LOL, more like 325.. Definitely nothing under 250 anyway..
Arch Stanton said on 9/Aug/13
Actually looks near 6'6 here to me but it might be his huge frame making him seem bigger.
Mathew said on 8/Aug/13
Ali Baba says on 8/Aug/13
He's over 300 pounds easy.
Really? I assumed the coat was making him look bigger, I would've thought 240 - 250. But you may be better at estimating weight than I.
Ali Baba said on 8/Aug/13
He's over 300 pounds easy.
Sam said on 7/Aug/13
Yeah, this guy looks very much 6'5" and over 250 pounds to me.
avi said on 6/Aug/13
@Viper says on 5/Aug/13
Back to back makes people look shorter at times I prefer face to face even over side to side. But he does look 6'5 here but sure he could be 6'4.75 the point is he is no more than .6 away from his claim. Standing totally erect he must be 6'5 on dot.
Viper said on 6/Aug/13
He might have been 225 in high school. lol

My late husband was 192 cm and I am 177 cm. Normal height for Scancinavians, Finns are a little shorter.
Meltdown said on 5/Aug/13
There is no way he is anywhere even close to 225 lbs in this picture. I'm calling 250, 260 easy.
Viper said on 5/Aug/13
Looks 6'5 to me. Back to Back here is pretty good.

OK so ken must be 6'4.5 minimum no way he's under. He could be weak 6'4.5 but I'd be silly to argue .2 of inch. To be honest if he claims about 6'5 I think its fair.
ice said on 4/Aug/13
looked massive in Freddy vs Jason , 6'5 legit

Compared to challenger 15, who comes out where he should at 6´5.25" using Robs 2 inch mark, Ken looks a hair over 6´4".
I agree challenger 15 looks taller. It's just I don't think Ken was standing as straight as challenger 15, I thought Ken could squeeze out another half inch more than Rob. That's why I think Ken looks 6'5" here.

The kid was over 6'3 but no 6'3.5
he was measured 191.7cm barefoot, basically 6'3.5 yes Click Here
Nickow said on 2/Aug/13
I'm 199cm and 276 pounds, does that make any difference??, he looks a good 196cm to me. easily..
avi said on 2/Aug/13
The kid was over 6'3 but no 6'3.5. He looks inch taller so 6'4.25 - 6'4.5 but I think ken is 6'4.5 minimum and measures 6'4.7 if standing erect. That kid was standing very erect when measured...if ken did the same he'd be 6'4.5 minimum
Mathew said on 2/Aug/13
Forgot to add he looks taller than Clive Russell and appears about 2" taller than Sorbo too. 6'5".
Mathew said on 2/Aug/13
6'4"? Oh come on guys, stop trying to downgrade. This is what 6'5" looks like. He looks like he'd slightly edge out other 6'5" listed guys like Tom Hopper, Joe Manganiello, Tony Todd, and Tom Noonan. In comparison to Rob honestly doesn't look more than an inch shorter than Daniel Cudmore who pulls a 6'7" listing.

194cm is possible but not more, if you measure (not just look) Rob comes very near 2 inches over his chin, means to be taller than 6´4" flat he would need a taller than 10" head.
11" head he would need to reach 6´5" is out of question.
robs friend measured 6'3.5 barefoot so he looks to be over 6'4 Click Here
still getting dwarfed by a near 70 year old peter mayhew who has been walking around with a cane for years Click Here

Ken and Doug Tait (6'5")
He isn't above 6'5" and to me, like in his appearance beside Rob, looks between 6'4 and 6'5.
richkid123 said on 2/Aug/13
this guy would make 6'1" dudes look small
thorterr said on 2/Aug/13
yer 6ft 5 if same footwear
avi said on 2/Aug/13
@Red183 says on 1/Aug/13
you have a point but we must be careful when benchmarking against the chin and other body parts. i admit Rob comes up quite a bit above the chin. Ken's head could be 10 even so Rob comes up 1.5 minimum above chin so 6'4.5 is max he could be i think.
avi said on 1/Aug/13
i was looking on my phone before...on a desktop the difference isnt as big because i can see it better. he could be barely scrapping 6'5 now that i can properly see because Rob does come above the chin by 1-1.5 inch maybe.could be hitting the lower lip. but 6'5 is definitely reasonable. i think under 6'4.5 is too low. he is close to 6'5 flat then 6'4.5. there's more than 8 inches here. must be like 8.75 minimum
Yaspaa said on 1/Aug/13
I can totally buy 6'5, he looks bigger than DDP.
LG69 said on 1/Aug/13
6'5" for sure, however, he does look over 225lbs. I'd guess he is 240lbs.
Alexander said on 1/Aug/13
Looks in 6'4-4.5 range
Lillo Thomas said on 1/Aug/13
This guys looks taller than Tom hopper . That's how a legit 6-5 should look next to Rob.
Larc 74in said on 1/Aug/13
195 min, but probably a full 196.
lelman said on 1/Aug/13
There's no way this guy is under 6'5". Looks easily 8 inches taller than Rob.
avi said on 1/Aug/13
@Red 183 says on 26/Mar/13
He can look 6'3-6'4 solo because he's heavy and bulky but its clear he stands 6'5 . If rob stood side by side the difference should look as big but Rob would go his chin probably.
Lo sgozzatore said on 1/Aug/13
6'3? xD I think the lowest you could argue is 6'4.75 but he's very likely a big 6'5 guy!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/13
It'd be funny to see this guy in a picture with Kane Hodder.

He's clearly over 6'3, Red you must be joking.
avi said on 31/Jul/13
I hate judging height when facing back to back. Its like 9 inches here he's like Clive Russell maybe 1/4 less.
Lo sgozzatore said on 31/Jul/13
He looks a big 6'5 man, taller than Tom Hopper and Joe Manganiello, very similar to the 196 challenger guy. Rob, who you think would be taller between him and this guy? Could this guy be a smidge taller than 6'5?
Connor 184cm said on 31/Jul/13
Rob Jason Voorhees is 6ft 8 do you think ken could be that tall in Friday the 13th? he might have worn heels that made him reach 6ft 8 ? But yeah he does look 6ft 5 with you hes a big man.
Mathew said on 31/Jul/13
Now this is what a legit 6'5" looks like above. Next to Rob I see 196 cm and close to 240 lbs. Big guy.

Met him in Nashville for the Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Show Convention and he is every bit of 6'5" for sure! He towered over me! Very tall and very gorgeous! :) LOL

Actually he's 6'6
Jake T. said on 4/Mar/11
Kirzinger was about 8 or 9 inches taller than Englund in Freddy vs Jason. 6'5 sounds fair.
Mike said on 5/Feb/11
In Freddy vs Jason yes Yu believed Kane was too short to play jason they wanted someone to tower over the 5ft9 Freddy but Kane whos like 6 ft 2 with the boots at 6 ft3 would have made Freddy look short anyway but hey went with a bigger guy ken Kirzinger he's 6 ft5 in the film though idk why thye gave him big boots so in Freddy vs Jason hes like 6 ft 7 in the film
Big King said on 5/May/09
Kirzinger is a strong 6'5" guy by the way.
Big King said on 23/Feb/09
Hey rob, is that stunt canada Ken's official website? Most sources have him at 6'5 1/2". And normal shoes tower a human an inch. So if Kirzinger is 6'5 1/2" at his peak then he would appear 6'7 1/2" because due to his high boots, he has 2 inches advantage.
Alex said on 15/Feb/09
Ed, yea he did look 6'10-7'0 in some shots. Was this 3 inches of lift or 3 inches added to his height because 3 inch heels wont give a full 3 inches, more 2-2.5 inches.
Now the shortest Jason was Steve Dash I believe. Warington Gillete only played Jason in the window scene at the end of part 2. Dash looked 6'0 max and likely more around 5'11 I think.
John said on 14/Feb/09
yea it said that in freddy vs. jason he was wearing big boots that made him 6'8
Ed(1) said on 9/Feb/09
Kirzinger did where lifts in Freddy vs. Jason, and in the just released documentary His Name Was Jason he talks about them in his interview. He said they were around 3", and the director mentions them too, using his hands to demonstrate how big they were. So Kirzinger was around 6ft8 in FVJ, and with certain steep angles like in the cornfield scene he does look near 7ft.
Aside from mentioning that in the doc, there's no reference to the varying sizes of the different Jasons over the years. The do interviews with all the guys who played him, but they are pretty short, maybe 2 minutes each.
Haze said on 14/Nov/08
big king. watch the cornfield scene. thats what i call towering not the weak 2" over towering references used here often. in the cornfield scene i see 2 5'9ish guys absolutely dwarfed by jason. hes looking 6'10+ in that scene
Big King said on 4/Sep/08
I don't think that Ken wore hight lifts when he was playing Jason in Freddy vs Jason otherwise he would appear to look gigantic. He looked tall but not gigantic.
RAZOR said on 28/May/08
I'm sure that Ken is 6'5 1/2" straight out of bed and 6'5" for the next hours.
RAZOR said on 24/May/08
We all know that Ken is a strong 6'5". Claiming his height at almost 6'6" is fair enough.
Inturnitator said on 16/May/08
I'm sure that Kirzinger is 6'5 1/2" out of bed and later 6'5".
thekiddd said on 29/Mar/08
The biography made it clear that he was 6'5" not the extra half inch. People seem to like the sound of 6'5 1/2" here.
Ian said on 25/Feb/08
Robert Englund stand 5'10" & Ken Kirzinger stands 6'5"1/2.But with his boots he stands 6'8". But whats rong with that jason has to be tall. Thats one of the things jason is rememberd for his Height. And Ken is the tallest actor to play jason so far.
Highvor said on 7/Jan/08
Stop saying "big boots"! That's nonsense. Ken is a tall and a rough guy. He looks near 6'6" and also as Jason he didn't seem to be taller.
Alex said on 9/Jun/07
6'5.5 in big boots with certain camera angles Ken looked like 6'10 in some shots.
Colton said on 18/Apr/07
ya hes 6 foot 6. but they make their jasons where boots so hes probly look 6 foot 10 in his boots. 6 foot 6 is still a decently tall man. but ya in his boots in freddy vs jason he stands 6 foot 10.
Ed said on 16/Mar/07
SJ, Kirzinger played the cook in Part 8 which I've seen numerous times. He comes out from behind the counter in the diner to face off against Hodder, who throws him over the bar. When he comes out you see he has normal shoes on and is not standing perfectly straight and he has a good 2-3 inches on Hodder. I remember as a kid being more impressed w/the huge cook than Jason in that movie. It was the first time I've really seen Jason look outsized. In normal shoes he'd be about 6ft6 plus, compared to Kane standing close to 6ft4 in his big heeled Jason boots.
S.J said on 15/Mar/07
In Friday the 13th part 8 the one in New York Ken Kirzinger is a Cook Or something (i didnt see the Movie) but He Didnt Look Mutch Taller then Jason (Kane hodder) Or was Jason Wearing Boots that had about 2 inches
im not sure if its Ken Kirzinger who i mean i saw a bit of it
Something that he got thrown against a Mirror or something Over the Bar
But he's a Tall guy
If you see him tower over those two in the Corn Field in Freddy vs Jason
Ed said on 6/Mar/07
Just read an interview w/Brad Loree the guy who played Michael Myers in part 8. Anyways he's a godd friend of Kirzinger's, and he was originally up for the role of Jason in FVJ, but Ronny Yu the director thought he was too short at 6ft2.5 for the role. Yu was looking for guys that were near 6ft7, and apparently that coupled w/the fact that Ken had Jason experience in Part 8 as Kane's double(which explains why Jason looks so tall in diff. scenes)he was chosen. So the guy lists 6ft5, but I'm wondering if he rounds down a bit to get more work. I'm sure at times 6ft7 is wanted, but maybe he says 6ft5 to make sure he's not passed up for a slightly smaller guy, just a theory considering Loree describes him at 6ft7 as does Canada Mike and Aussie Bloke who said he looked huge at the premiere. I thought he looked 6ft6 at least as the cook in part 8, and in FVJ he looks massive.
Alex said on 4/Jan/07
6'5 1/2 maybe but I'm not sure if his profile would have been rounded down. The guy is at least a legit 6'5 and can get away with being 6'6 or so because he wears the big boots sometimes.
S.J said on 1/Jan/07
6,5 1/2 (197cm)
Aussie Bloke said on 12/Dec/06
this guy is one massive mofo, and I mean MASSIVE! I saw him at the premiere of Freddy Vs Jason, he had to be around the 7ft mark, absolutely TOWERING over everyone that was there. Truly Gigantic man
Alex said on 27/Oct/06
If you guys saw the press conference on the Freddy vs Jason DVD when Freddy and Jason have a staredown, Jason has him by 9-10 inches. Freddy is wearing boots while Jason's boots are obviously bigger. Ken is 6'5, maybe 6'5.5 and he looks like 6'8 in them.
Canada Mike said on 29/Sep/06
I grew up with Ken from a young age, haven't seen him for a couple of years though, and we measured each other when we were around 16-17. He was right on 6ft7, WITHOUT A DOUBT! I was at 6ft1 and he absolutely towered over me. Maybe he stopped growing in his mid-late teens, and has shrunk a couple of inches, but I swear, this dude was 6ft7 when he was around 16-17
Alex said on 4/Jun/06
Jason while you're on the this page what do you peg this guy at? 6'5-6'5.5 most would say. On my Freddy vs Jason DVD they have a press conference on the extras and they both have a face off and Jason is just a good 9 inches taller. Also if you look at Ken's heels they are a good 2 inches, maybe 2.5 inches of height he got going on there. Hes def 6'5-6'5.5 in his barefeet though.
Jason said on 2/Jun/06
That isn't me. Dude, there's already a ''Jason'' here. ;)
Jason said on 1/Jun/06
Jake, how can I change the height of several characters?
Alex said on 10/May/06
I wonder how big his boots were in Freddy vs Jason? 6'5-6'5, whichever he is. The boots must have been at least 2 inches whether it was on the inner of the boot or outter. I think he had a 1-1.5 inch heel with a 1 inch lift inside making him 2-2.5 inches taller and hes already 6'5-6'5.5 so he was def 6'7-6'7.5 in those boots.
Colt said on 4/May/06
He is about 6'5 3/4" That where he should be listed as.
Alex said on 10/Apr/06
Jake, IMDB changes their info too much. Ken was listed at 6'5, 6'5.5, 6'6 and 6'7. Hes def 6'5 to 6'5.5.
Alex said on 6/Apr/06
He could be a little over 6'5, like 6'5.5. He looked 6'7-6'8 in Freddy vs Jason. But he had 2 inch heels on at least.
Noname said on 6/Mar/06
He is either 6'5 1/2 or 6'5 3/4". One of thost two.
Alex said on 30/Jan/06
But also like you said Ken said he wore boots 2-2.5 inches putting him at 6'7.5. He is already 8 inches taller than Robert England, plus the bigger boots he had on and the camera angles he did appear like 6'10. That scene in the cornfield Ed where he goes after the 2 kids where he snaps the kids neck and turns it totally around, Ken does look like 6'10 with that camera angle.
Ed said on 28/Jan/06
I think he's around 5ft9 like you said, with boots with 1.5 inch heels. 5ft10.5 looks right for Freddy, no more though. There's a picture, or I should say a poster of Ken and Robert standing back to back in their costumes, and it's hilarious how tall Ken looks next to Robert. You can see how gigantic he really was in that film. On another note, I always thought Kane looked tall, especially when he was chasing the doctor through the woods in Part 7, and I remember thinking he looked like a giant. But, Ken really did look the tallest of any Jason by leaps and bounds. In the scene at the rave in the cornfield, in Freddy vs. Jason, he looked like he was 7ft tall. I know not for real, but with the camera angles he just was monstrous. Richard Booker I always thought was a really good Jason, and he looked really tall and lanky. Plus he had that clean,white, bald head, which was kind of creepy. It made him more human I guess, and not so much a zombie.
Ed said on 18/Jan/06
He did say in interviews that he wore boots with large lifts to make him about 6ft7 maybe 6ft7.5. They wanted Jason to be really huge and intimidating in the new film. Kane just wasn't big enough!
Travis said on 15/Jan/06
I think 197cm(6'5 1/2) sounds about right
Bleemo said on 8/Jan/06
If you look at the link for his photos on here he has big chunky boots on to make him look even bigger.
