Weird guy build style posture will do literally any role.
He cant be less than weak 6 ft was close to kostner barefoot.
He looks big in several movies think he likes boots and heels.
Obviously bigger than 90s bruce willis for what thats worth.
6 feet seems a fair average he did look oddly tiny in that one res evil flick.

I've met this guy in real life when he was on a convention in Sweden 2 years back. I'm around 173cm or 5'8 and my head topped at around his eye-level, so there was at least a 10cm difference. I would probably even add 2-4cm as he was slouching a bit. I'd say he's a strong 183/6ft to around 185/6'1.

Next to Bana he looks 186-187cm but most likely the shoes

Nice, I’d put 6’ at physical prime, now 5’11.5”-5’11.75” at age 59.
Yes, he has lost height.

Rob, is there a photo of you with him?
Editor Rob: not useful as he didn't stand well!
said on 2/Dec/17
I think "six feet tall" is still open to interpretation because it doesn't always literally mean 6ft. Kevin Costner and even Idris Elba have said it before.
Editor Rob: in person not over 6ft, arguably 5ft 11.5 too..
Slim 184 said on 4/Nov/17
Definitely not under 182 Cm, with boots and posture he matched up to Eric Bana!!!!!
said on 28/Oct/17
Rob, he refers to himself as "six feet" in this interview
Editor Rob: thanks for pointing it out, I will put his quote at the top.
said on 29/Sep/17
Do you think Kim would be taller than William Fichtner?
Editor Rob: I think he can look similar range
said on 25/Aug/17
You have seen taller six footers, huh? 😊 What's the lowest he could possibly be? 5'11.5? I can buy somewhere between 5'11 and 6' but he never looked a solid 6' to me. Let alone over!
Editor Rob: 5ft 11.5 lowest I could see but just shy of six feet is a reasonably accurate guess I'd think
said on 24/Aug/17
So Rob, since you have now met both of them, what's the real difference between him and Michael Rosenbaum? Is Kim really near an inch taller than Michael in person? What's the lowest you'd argue for Kim? Will you ever upload your picture with him? I have seen it and I know how bad it came out, with him looking barely taller than you, but maybe it is still worth posting it. After all, he certainly wouldn't be the first celebrity to look nowhere near his listing with you 😊
Editor Rob: there's a good chance about half inch, a weak 6ft for Coates is entirely possible.

Really? A strong 6 foot upgrade is necessary.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/17
182cm is too low
said on 25/Apr/17
so he was really a big 6 footer? i thought he was maybe 0.5-1 cm under it
Editor Rob: you could make a case for 182cm for Kim up close...
said on 19/Apr/17
rob i read some comment hear and it seems like you are going to meet him soon? i believe that when you see him you will downgrade him to 1/4 under 6 foot. He looks like a weak 6 footer. like william fichtner
Editor Rob: I did see him, but he fluffed the photo by dropping height at last moment...not worth putting on here anyway.
berta said on 21/Feb/17
never struck me as a tall guy. he was the same height as william fichtner in prison break that measn the listing is good. no taller. could be 1/4 under
Lucas said on 6/Aug/16
This guy is 1.85 at least, He was even higher than Kevin Costner in Waterworld.
said on 9/Jul/16
Ahahah, that's what i am afraid of! So, stand as tall as you can and tell him there's a guy on the site who believes he isn't even 6' and struggles to look even 5'11 at times!
Maybe that will make him stand as tall as Vin Diesel, which means no posture excuses :)
As for the photo, let's just hope the photographer won't be the same of Colin Salmon or Brett Dalton!
Editor Rob: I will see how he stands with the people in front, but really it can be hit and miss...
I will at least try to react if he drops any height, but then, the times I do drop height quickly (in hip/back) it's harder to see it, so maybe it is better to just stand 5ft 8!
said on 8/Jul/16
Rob, i've read that even Kim will be at the LFCC!!! Good news!
Hopefully you'll finally meet him and say if he really is a big 6' in person! :)
I know it doesn't depend on you but try to get a good photo, if you really want to show he's a six footer!
Editor Rob: I will slouch on purpose and you won't know, and I'm sure I can have him back up to 6ft 1 ;)
Andrea said on 11/Apr/16
And Boris looks at least 6'5... And Michael Rosenbaum no less than 6'2...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/16
Bana looks 6ft1 max if Coates is 6ft!
said on 5/Apr/16
Do you think he might be sub 5'11?
With Rob: Click Here
He looks similar range to the picture with Boris...
A weak 5'11!
Editor Rob: I would say he can look 5ft 11.5 there, I think there's enough to say a max he could be is 6ft.
said on 2/Apr/16
I don't think that a 6' would explain a picture like this... Boris makes him look short! Granted that Boris can look a big 6'4 guy with a lot of people, Kim struggles to look even 5'11 there... That's quite objective, i think!
Editor Rob: in the still yes he can look nearer 5ft 11 than 6ft range, I can't recall the scene though, but I have Afterlife somewhere, I might dig it out at some point.
said on 31/Mar/16
Rob, look at him with legit 6'4 Boris Kodjoe: Click Here
Don't tell me that's a 6'0.5 guy vs 6'4!!!
Editor Rob: there's probably a good amount of evidence to say 6ft is closer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Feb/16
Kim Coates - 6ft0¾(185cm)
Eric Bana - 6ft2½(189cm)
Ray said on 5/Feb/16
This picture with Bana is a good example of how pictures can be misleading. I think Coates is a good 2 inches less, however with boots on and standing slightly closer to the upward taken picture..he appears taller than Bana. You can see by the shoulders that Bana is in reality taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/16
He looks pretty similar to Eric Bana in that photo. I don't think he's under this mark
said on 3/Dec/15
What about this mug shot, it shows him at 5'10 range, wierd....
Andrea said on 5/Sep/15
He does look noticeably shorter than Boris Kodjoe in Resident Evil (just saw some scenes on tv the other day), certainly no less than 4-4.5 inches! Boris is a solid 6'4, this guy really is 6' at best on a good day!
dmeyer said on 22/Jul/15
Looking at a few pics 183cm is possible
dmeyer said on 22/Jul/15
I agree with risenbaum looks under but most times looks it
Joe said on 21/Jul/15
if he is 6 then Charlie Hunnam is 5'10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/15
There's no way he'd be identical to Eric Bana if he's only 6ft flat
bobby h3342 said on 3/May/15
dead on rob dead on! I ran into him at comic con 6 1/2 feet barefoot, with shoes on 6 1.3/4
Andrea said on 3/Oct/14
Yeah, go tell Michael Rosenbaum... He'll be happy to get a 6'+ listing :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/14
Based on that picture w/h Bana, I wouldn't argue under this height for starters.
Sam said on 1/Oct/14
Weird picture with Bana actually...goes to show how with his better posture and closer to camera proximity that Coates can pull off edging out a guy who's reportedly about 1.5-1.75 inches taller.
Andrea said on 29/Sep/14
At least mark his listing with a G before his name, same thing with Dave Annable and others on here... Just to let people know they're listed at least an inch higher than they are ;)
Andrea said on 28/Sep/14
But even 6' is hard to believe, unless Rosenbaum is 6' as he claims! And, to be fair, he does look shorter than Rosenbaum! The scene i posted is the "best" of them together, there aren't good scenes to compare but Kim Coates is looking up to Rosenbaum!
said on 27/Sep/14
Do you really think he's more than an inch taller than Rosenbaum? I mean, unless Rosenbaum is wearing lifts, then it's hard to believe he's 6'0.5... Even in SOA, despite what people say on here, he doesnt strike me as a big 6'0.5 guy, he looks similar height with other people like Ron Perlman or Charlie Hunnam... And they can look 5'11 range a lot, but then again sometimes their posture isn't perfect so they could be closer to 6'... Anyway, you met Rosenbaum and Kim does look shorter than him!
[Editor Rob: 6ft might be ok, I would need to see that episode on smallville to get a better idea of them together]
said on 26/Sep/14
Rob, here's with Mike Rosenbaum:
Do you really think he's a big 6'0.5 guy? Of course, Rosenbaum could have some camera advantage in that shot, but "looks down" to Kim Coates too when they talk together. It's hard to believe he's a big inch taller than Rosenbaum!
[Editor Rob: in that still it's hard to imagine him as tall as 184, but generally I wouldn't have thought he was under 6ft range]
TJE said on 21/Jul/14
Has nearly 2 inches on Ron Perlman in SoA.
cole said on 31/Mar/14
The case of Coates's height is the same as that of Alexis Denisof. People see him 6'1-2 range, but he'd probably look a strong 6ft - 6'0.5 guy in person.
Powerhouse said on 23/Oct/13
My guess is 6'1.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Aug/13
"Kim Coates's height is 6ft 1in (185cm)"
Maybe even 186cm. Perlman is still a solid 6ft and this guy looks at least an inch taller.
CL said on 19/Aug/13
I saw him running in Eaton Canyon (LA Area) about a year ago...surprisingly big guy. I'd go with 6'1" range.
HellBoundPower said on 30/Aug/12
Seeing him on Sons of Anarchy and in Resident Evil, I definitely think he's closer to 6'2". Probably 6'1.5" at the lowest.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/12
Too low...had 2in over Bruce Willis
in The Last Boy Scout.
said on 28/Jun/09Click Here
Nah I think he may be a strong 6'..
Grbac said on 29/May/09
at least 6'2 or 6'3
