Yeah weird that there aren't any photos of him and Idris Elba together....they never shared any scenes on The Wire but even at premieres etc....I reckon Idris might've measured a little taller than Lance back to back

Rip. honest 6'2 guy and very solid actor.

Sadly will never see photos of him and idris elba to compare height.

RIP Lance. Such a great actor.

Terrible news, another great actor gone way too soon. RIP

you couldnt look more healthy than this guy did for a 60 year old man. I wonder what happened.
Vick said on 17/Mar/23
This just shocked me, the man looked healthy and well.

Rob, Lance has passed away unfortunately

I cannot believe there aren't photos of Lance with Idris Elba out there...well-known fact they never appeared together on The Wire but even at premieres over the years not once have they posed together

That would be ultimate comparison

188 cm
Chris Junior Hernandez said on 18/Jun/21
Look 3" taller than Fishburne. It's possible Fishburne isn't over 5'11.5" now and Lance had higher chance to be 6'2.5".
166.4cm kid said on 12/Jun/21
Legit 189cm guy in my opinion
BT said on 3/May/21
He's at an age now where 1 cm loss wouldn't be unheard of, but maybe he hasn't lost much. There aren't many celebs I'd class as modest with their claim, but Lance can definitely look like one of them if a lot of other celebs' listings are to be believed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jan/21
He's filled out quite a bit in the lower picture but still looks a strong 6ft2 while Fishburne is looking barely 5ft10! In The Matrix there was definitely not that much between him and Keanu
Slim 6'1 said on 31/Dec/20
188.5 is fine, tall dude ✅
Canson said on 23/Dec/20
I think a better listing is 6’2 1/8”
Editor Rob
I think most agreed that on something like Fringe he could pass for 6ft 2.5 at least most of the time.
Canson said on 12/Nov/20
In the pic above he looks 6’2-6’2.25 range
Slim 6'1" said on 8/Aug/20
listing is spot on
Canson said on 19/Jul/20
@Christian: very true
viper said on 9/Jun/20
I think Jackson is 6-0.5
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jun/20
Dominic West gonna be 5'11 3/4 if Lance is 6'2 1/4 and Joshua Jackson 6'0 3/4.
Nik Ashton said on 30/May/20
Kim Glass would just edge him out! It’s great to give Lance his 150th comment!
viper said on 26/May/20
Geno Smith looks taller physically to me imo
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/20
Lance actually has a taller proportion than your average 6'2" guy. He can look as tall as 6'4"-6'5" standing on his own.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/May/20
I recall the picture of him with peak Kareem makes him look close to 6'2.75".
viper said on 24/Feb/20
6-2 Geno Smith physically looks taller than Lance
Jkiller said on 14/Feb/20
6'2.5, strong 189cm
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Jan/20
6'2 1/2 candidate for sure. Don't think Idris Elba is taller than Lance.
berta said on 20/Jan/20
he really never looks shorter than 189 exept from 1 photo with joe manganiello.

Reddick met Jamie Hector and Chad L. Coleman in 2016:

Rob, how tall would you say Reddick looks in this picture?
Editor Rob
At that moment he can look nearer 6ft 3 than 2
Canson said on 27/Dec/19
I would say 188-188.5 for afternoon height for him.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Nov/19
I watch many episode of Fringe that Joshua Jackson stand right next to Lance and what i see is a solid 1.5" not 3cm between them. It's 4cm apart. Maybe Rob should consider to put down 1/4 at Joshua listing. Sometimes Lance can even pull off 190cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Oct/19
188.5-189cm is likely I think
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/19
@Johan 185 cm

You miss out that Joe had 1/4 more footwear and look 2.5" taller. If Lance stay 6'2 1/4 then this a height before bed not a mid day height and Joe is probably nothing over 194.5cm not 194.9cm.

Click Here Lance posture can still be improve a bit and lower footwear, look at a good posture and the boots on Joe. I'm implying Lance to be 189cm before bed.
Johan 185 cm said on 30/Aug/19
Looks a good 2.5 inches shorter than Joe Manganiello, listing is good.
Wheat farmer said on 28/Aug/19
Tall tall guy saw him in angel has fallen and John wick series, this guy could be very well touching 190 cm !
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Jul/19
@Sjsj Click Here 2" max they look. Keanu is more on the 184cm low side and Reddick may not be under 189cm.
Importer said on 20/Jul/19
His 6'2 claim is more likely rounded down...I'd say 6'2 1/2-3/4. On screen he looks at least 2inch taller than Keanu Reeves
Sjsj said on 19/Jul/19
He is much taller than Keanu.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jun/19
Rob, if go by listing maybe Reddick is really 6'2.5"? Check out this picture Click Here Joe obviously had 1/4 more footwear here and they does look 2.5" difference not more. No posture issues for both.
Editor Rob
He has pulled off near 189cm, I think the case is either 6ft 2.25 up to 2.5, moreso than a 6ft 2 flat for him.
berta said on 19/May/19
i think the listed heihgt is good. he have perfect posture that can make him look 189-190 range sometimes. but measured i think weak 189 is about right for him. In photos with keanu he looks shorter than i would expect from looking at them just now. I think keanu like a 184-185 guy but i start to think keanu can be the full 185 actually
Nik said on 17/Jan/19
It's interesting that he didn't mention the quarter in his height claims above! The average vote is astoundingly high!
Nik said on 12/Nov/18
It's good that he is height honest!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Nov/18
If Joe Manganiello 6'4 3/4 is legit by Rob estimate i don't see Lance Reddick is anything under 6'2 1/2 Brandon Routh and Geoff Stults.
Canson said on 27/Oct/18
@Rob: I think a straight 6’2” as opposed to that high. I see him waking to 6’2.75 and being 6’2 at a low.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
Joe Manganiello had a 3/8 more footwear still look nothing over 6'4 1/2 with Lance. I'm thinking Joe might be only 6'4 1/4 and Alexander Skarsgard could have ended up to be only 6'4.
Nik said on 17/Aug/18
He's an honest claimer!
depressed schizophrenic said on 23/Jul/18
He looks too long to be under a strong 6'2 imo
Canson said on 19/Jul/18
He’s a straight 6’2” like he says maybe max 1/8 over at a low
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jun/18
Strange that Joshua Jackson look more like 2" lower than Lance and only a hair to look 1" shorter. Wonder Joshua is only 6'0 1/4 as i can buy a guess for Lance being 6'2 1/4.
Canson said on 10/May/18
Something to pay attention to is that he has long arms and legs. It’s the same type of impression Michael Jordan gives off that he’s taller than he actually is.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 4/May/18

That is the best listing for Lance!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/18
I think 6ft2⅜(188.9cm) could be spot on for him
Dejavu said on 17/Feb/18
He was more than an inch taller than Keanu. Looked closer to 2 inches
Will 2 said on 30/Jan/18
He's a Strong 6'2
Canson said on 6/Nov/17
Agreed Junior and Christian. 6’2 flat. And Christian is right guys like he and Reynolds “out” other celebs who claim 6’2” that aren’t really same with Kobe outing a guy claiming 6’4/6’5 that really isn’t or Howard stern doing the same
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 5/Nov/17

I agree. Same thing with Ryan Reynolds, because he's an honest 6'2" my opinion as well, some people think he's 6'2.75" Honest celebs like Red**** and Reynolds are often accused of downplaying their heights, because most other celebs they stand next to are a bit overlisted.
Faza said on 23/Oct/17
Looks close to 6ft3 on the wire real tall guy prob measure similar to idris elba i think he is a very solid 6ft2range guy at worst for sure 188 189cm is an impressive height
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 9/Aug/17
Most people who are 6'2.5" will easily just round up to 6'3". So it's pretty unlikely for Lance to be 6'2.5" He's 6'2" like he has claimed, or at most 6'2.25" but not more.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 27/Jul/17
Me think 6'2.5" is a safe bet.
6'1.5 said on 24/Jul/17
If he claims 6'2" but looks more than 6'2.5" than he probably got measured at night and went with that, I mean not everyone knows they lose height during the day
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/17
I'd give him 6ft2½ like Jack Coleman
even said on 3/Jul/17
hes 6 foot 2 he said so himself i dont know what you boys are talking about!
Editor Rob
he has said it twice, but there's a good chance he's in the same bracket as say big Jack Coleman, who also says 6ft 2 but looks over it.

Some actors will drop a fraction, although it's infinitely more rarer than an actor rounding up.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 18/Jun/17
Same as Elba. 6'2" or 6'2" and change.
berta said on 13/May/17
i would have thought this dude was barely 190 cm if not for the photo with joe managniello. that is evidence enough that shows that he is just a fraction over 6 foot 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Apr/17
His average guess is actually higher than Elba's!
S.J.H said on 27/Mar/17
He mention quite few times he was 6'2 means it. John noble probably under over 5'10.5 barefoot and joshua jackson is max 6'0.5

He would edge out Ryan Reynolds.

wow! I was sure he was 6"2. Been a fringe fan for a whitle and when I watched the tv show, I always thought he looked 6"2. what a shocker!
Big Lew said on 15/Feb/17
Google has him at 6 4
S.J.H said on 10/Feb/17
More i see reddick he could be just an honest 6'2 like justin hartley and joshua jackson probably not over 6'0.25
Balrog said on 30/Jan/17
If Elba claims 6'2'' but is listed at 190cm, I don't know why this guy isn't.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 27/Jan/17
Gives a taller impression than most 6'2.25" listed people. I would bet my cents on 6'2.5" more often.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Oct/16
I'm actually siding with Andrea on this one. That mark might be best for him.
Andrea said on 2/Oct/16
Of course, i do not think he's a 6'4er, Rob! I was just trying to boost his height near a more believable listing :P
Based on other people's listings, 6'2.5 is the absolute minimum I'd buy...
So, if you can, just remove my vote... I'm not gonna influence this "average guess" thing in any way :)
Editor Rob
sure I'll delete that 6ft 4 vote.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/16
Average guess nearly 6ft3!
Andrea said on 29/Sep/16
Let's test this vote system...
Christian-196cm (6ft5.25in) said on 20/Aug/16
This guy is a rare case of someone who downplays their height, yet gets listed as taller than their actual height on the web.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Aug/16
He does, Arch...It just goes to show how tall 189cm really is. I think 188cm is too low for him though.
Andrea said on 20/Aug/16
With Chad: Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 19/Aug/16
He has the look of a near 6 ft 4 guy when you quickly look at him! But then slender build can give that impression. Agreed on him being a tall 6'2 er, some guys can really pull off looking taller.
Andrea said on 18/Aug/16
I don't think he's got a particularly good posture (like Stephen Amell or "the ridicolous" Vin Diesel) but yeah he generally holds good posture...
But i've seen him in The Wire, some episodes of Fringe and now Bosch and he always strikes me as being very tall, he towers most of the people around him and i've never seen him with someone taller than him... That's why i asked you if he chooses to work only with shorter people xD
There are some guys listed at the same mark (6'2.25) who certainly don't give me this very tall impression, people like Hugh Laurie, Ben Affleck or Morgan Freeman, just to name a few... They just look tall! Not to mention people like Clint Eastwood, who are supposed to have been even near 6'4...
Andrea said on 18/Aug/16
Rob, even in Bosch Lance looked very tall in every scene and again i've never seen him standing with a taller guy... Do you think he asks the directors to work only with shorter actors?
He had a couple of scenes with Nestor Serrano, that you have here at 5'11 (and i vaguely remember him from 24), and he did TOWER him, meaning he looked at least 5-6 inches taller than him!
He's really the tallest 6'2 guy i've ever seen (you've got plenty of "6'2" guys on here who looks just tall(ish))
Editor Rob
I don't think the guy is lying about being 6ft 2, it might simply be he measured a bit more and rather than round up, just said 6ft 2.

6ft 2.5 is a pretty tall height, with good posture like he can have I'm sure he could pull off appearing 6ft 3 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jul/16
"Lance Reddick's Height: 6ft 2½in (189.23cm)"
Alex said on 28/Jun/16
189 cm is probably his barefoot height, because in shoes he always look a 6'3 easily.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/16
That really makes him a 6ft2½ guy which might just be it for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Apr/16
Rob, out of these?

A) 191.5cm/189.5cm
B) 191cm/189cm
C) 190.5cm/188.5cm
D) 190cm/188cm
E) 189.5cm/187.5cm
Editor Rob
B-C range is generally what I think he could measure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/16
Plenty of guys near 6ft3 who round down to 6ft2. Brendan Fraser, Tom Welling, Idris Elba, Gary Cooper (who was maybe a fraction 6ft3)

Rob, could Lance be one of those guys?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure he would be a 6ft 3 guy rounding down to 6ft 2.

there might be some cases of people who do get measured at 18-19 at a certain height and then go with that, but they gain a final bit of height and don't realise until the next time they get measured, which for some can be a long time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Feb/16
I think Steve meant "6ft2.75"
S.J.H said on 11/Feb/16
Lol. 6"0.75 (-_- ) He had to be at least 6'2 and max 6'2.5
Steve said on 8/Feb/16
I know him. He is 6' .75. If you are to tall in Hollywood, it can hurt you, because you make iconic actors like Robert Dinero or Mel Gibson look short and wimpy. Actors like Lance will put 6' 2" in resume to not scare off opportunity. Male actors do not want to look short on screen. How many times have you met an actor and he is shorter than you thought he was. it is because he only works with actors who are around his height. Lance will put down 6" 2' to get auditions. They will see 6" .75 but his talent will win. He gets the part.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/16
I thought he was 6ft3-4 guy on The Wire!
He's gotta be 6ft2-3 range at least maybe closer to the latter. 6ft2 flat is an injustice.
Paleman said on 20/Dec/15
The tallest 6'2 guy I've seen... He always gives the impression of an easy 6'3 guy - just look at him standing next to the legit 6 footer Ernie Hudson in Oz. I always thought of him as standing close to 192 centimeters tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Nov/15
He gives a much taller impression than a lot of guys listed here at 6ft2
Andrea said on 17/Sep/15
Yeah, Balrog. The minimum difference i see between him and Joshua is really 4 good cms, near 2 inches as you say! On the other hand, Joshua doesn't look much under 6'1, i think he might be 184-185! Lance i still believe he might be 189-190 and just goes with 6'2, similar to a Jack Coleman! With 195 Joe Manganiello, you can argue he doesn't look much over 6'2 but still i can't buy 6'2 flat! I am sure he would be taller than the plumber, i mean, 6'2 might be his height as much as 6'1.5 is the plumber's height, which means at his very absolute worst!
Balrog said on 15/Sep/15
The guy can even look easily 6'3". Lee Pace claims 6'3" and is listed at 192cm, don't know why Rob doesn't want to upgrade Lance. He looks 2in taller than Joshua Jackson who I think is 6'1" or near it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/15
You never know...he may come out with a 6ft3 claim at some point.
Andrea said on 8/Sep/15
Yeah, but still to be fair to G, he just added a good inch to his claim, The Rock is adding about 3 inches! Lance is claiming a very modest 6'2 and he'd probably be taller than him!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/15
If he measured nearer 6ft3 I wouldn't be shocked.
Andrea said on 2/Sep/15
Balrog, Rob actually put him at 6'2 flat for a period of time! He must be dropping a fraction, maybe he was measured at 6'2 and something and he just went with 6'2! Maybe he doesn't care that much about height! Imagine him meeting The Rock and telling him "I'm 6'2, how tall are you?" Do you think The Rock would dare to say 6'5, standing in front of him and considering Lance would probably edge him out? It would be a funny scene, even funnier than Rob meeting big G! :)
Editor Rob
to be fair to big G, it was no laughing matter for him. He had a face that wouldn't look amiss on a kid who just found out there's no Santa Claus.
Balrog said on 31/Aug/15
Rob, why you take the quarter inch? I really can't see this guy under 6'2.5", yeah he claims 6'2" but there are other cases of rounding down height...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/15
But Rob, if he was listed here would it be 6ft1½ or 6ft1¾?
Editor Rob
I used to see him mostly during days, rarely after tea-time, so my impression of him was a guy who generally looked more 6ft 2 than 1.5.

If he was an actor and I'd seen him up close a few times I'd have went with a 6ft 2 listing...

We can never be certain until someone is measured.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jun/15
Rob, sorry to reopen a past discussion but is that plumber dude officially a weak 6ft2?
Editor Rob
since he measurd 6ft 1.5, that is a vlid height, but I feel it was after a day being a plumber, generally I've seen him during days and thought he was a lot nearer 6ft 2, so he might be in the 6ft 1.75 zone normally, but after hard yacker hits that low.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jun/15
This is more appropriate
Lorne??? said on 20/Jun/15
This is better, a fair listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Apr/15
Sam says on 9/Apr/15
I wonder if Reddick was back to back with Idris Elba whether there'd be much difference.

They'd probably be close but maybe Elba would have a slight edge over Reddick.
joe 193cm night said on 11/Apr/15
looks 189 cm with joe, with footwear in favor of joe that nessecidade in 6'5 guy had to wear boots,Lance can even look 6'2.75 range

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/15
Rob, could he be like Jack Coleman in that he'll put down 6ft2 even though he's a fraction over it?

I'm w/h Lorne on this one. 6ft2¼ is closer for sure, possibly even 6ft2½.

He looks like a tall Don Cheadle. Great actor
S.J.H said on 2/Apr/15
I think 95% of people don't convince about he 6'2 claim. He look more like a significant solid 190cm guy. Maybe he lazy to put up that 0.75in so just claim 6'2?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/15
Lorne I think if you were to put the three of them together the difference wouldn't be significant unless you got them to take off their shoes and were to put them against a wall.

2cm is not a lot
Andrea said on 25/Mar/15
Seriously, if he's really only 6'2, that's the tallest 6'2 i've ever seen! And this listing still doesn't fit with many on here! It's plain to a blind man that there's more than just an inch between him and Joshua Jackson, still they're listed only an inch apart! I named Joshua, but i could name many celebrities who didn't look as tall as listed next to big Lance! Can you imagine him being as tall as Clive Owen, John Cusack or Will Poulter?
Lorne said on 24/Mar/15
Yeah, believe me, I'm not trying to rag th listing. I wish my old comments were here, I really did say that people were overestimating him, for the reasons mentioned. It's like how Kobe can look 196-7. But 6'2 flat seems a tad low. I''ll go with 6ft2.25 as a compromise, for my official "Lorne's Listing" :)

There was a pic with Beth Riesgraf, it's been a while, but IIRC he certainly didn't look less than 6'2.

(6ft2.5 is still possible, but 6ft2.25 is believable. I'm 100% confident he'd be a bit shorter than Tom Welling.)

Actually, with Reddick's 6'2 claims, and Welling sticking with "about/almost" 6ft3, and at one point saying "6'2 or 6'3", they are apparently two of the most honest men in Hollywood, they'd probably get along.

I can see it now: Ben Affleck claims he's 6ft3.5, then Reddick looks him in the eyes and claims 6ft2, and then Welling walks up, and, looking down at Ben, says "that's funny, I am ALMOST 6ft3, and I am an inch taller than you. Hmm..." ;)

Lance Reddick's height is 6ft 2in (188 cm)

Looks this, no doubt.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/15
188-189cm minimum
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Dec/14
His shiny pointed head may also add to the illusion of more height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/14
Before you know it, they'll be arguing 6ft1 range for this guy.

Rob is it possible that he's a 6ft2¼ more than say a 6ft1¾?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/14
188-189cm range for Reddick
184.3cm said on 16/Oct/14
I really thought this guy was 191cm a legit 6'3 !!. Surprising that he is only 188cm.
Andrea said on 15/Oct/14
Well, a guy like Alan Ritchson, you said he wasn't taller than the plumber in person, so he could be 6'1.5 him too? And that also would explain how he can look an inch and more shorter than a guy like Tom Welling! Lance, i think there's no chance he's even a mm under 6'2! And i still think he's being modest with a 6'2 claim!
Editor Rob
as I said, the plumber I've seen more often in morning/afternoon than after 6pm, so maybe I remember him nearer 6ft 2 more often than the time he was barely over 6ft 1.5!
Andrea said on 14/Oct/14
Rob, could you name another celebrity (listed at 6'2 of course) who might actually be very similar to him? I can't think to anyone, to be fair. And don't tell me Hugh Jackman, Clive Owen or even John Cusack xD
Editor Rob
I'm thinking of 6ft 2 guys I've met who look that height and can think of Alan Richston and Benjamin Ayres as 2 who looked near 6ft 2 on the nose.

Other guys like Ryan reynolds, Nick Chinlund, Will Poulter, diedrich bader, patrick duffy are just some who I think would measure very near the mark. There's probably a good chunk of 6ft 2 listed men who you could put in the 1.75 range
Andrea said on 12/Oct/14
And Rob, could you explain me how this is 3 big inches difference?

based on their eyes the cameraman looks like he's standing between lance and the bloke in the middle, so it could be an explanation as why there is a reduced difference, as compared to the shot side by side of them.
yes in the clip of jared/zach there can by anywhere from a bit over 1 up to 2 depending. It's more obvious zachary has a low sandal on but not so obvious just how much jared's cowboy footwear would give him.

I was the first to post Joe's pics and you didn't comment! Keep in mind that Joe has boots on, so he has some advantage... In the first pic he can look 6'2.5, in the second more 6'2 flat but first) Joe has some camera advantage and second) he has bette posture (look at their legs)! And what about The Rock? He does look shorter than him with guys of similar size to Joe and Kareem (to be fair, Kareem is even an inch taller than Shaq)! If this guy is only 6'2, you should put The Rock at 6'2 max (and could even be shorter)! Noway he is 6'3!
Editor Rob
I don't think there's any advantage, both have heels around inch.

This is the difference between Lance and "classic" 6'2 of celebheights:

Big Jamie next to Lance: Click Here
But, hey, Clive must be slouching, afterall he's a BIG 6'2!!!
Editor Rob
it's not exactly 2 side by side photos there.
Andrea said on 9/Oct/14
To be fair, i was suggesting he's no less than 6'2.5, Rob... You're basing your guess on just a photo... You (and i) always say just one photo is never enough! And that's a too big difference to draw any conclusion! The Rock looks a foot shorter than 7'1 Shaq... Then downgrade him to 6'1! Viper is not that wrong then... And prepare to downgrade a lot of people on here, noway is Joshua Jackson 6'1.25, he is 6'0.25 at best next to him! 6'2 flat is crazy, considering you have guys like Clive Owen, Paul Walker, Hugh Jackman, Matthew Fox at the same mark or guys like Eric Bana even taller... This guy can look very tall many times, the others just tall!
Editor Rob
look at Lance with Joe Manganeillo aswell...I think the fact he's now claimed 6ft 2 is a good indicator for me.
Andrea said on 8/Oct/14
Rob, how tall you think Lance looks with that Kareem? To me he can look taller than The Rock next to Shaq (and Kareem is supposed to be taller than Shaq!)... Same thing if you compare Lance to Joe and The Rock to Barley... The funny thing is that one guy claims 6'2, the other 6'4, but the first (Lance) would probably be taller!
Editor Rob
well to be fair he is a 'lance head' size plus an inch smaller in that photo so it appears 11 inches.

Then of course kareem's stance has to be worse than Lance so maybe another inch and suddenly (if shoes are equal) 6ft 2 and 7ft 2 range look quite possible. Certainly both their claims look legit to me, Kareem said he was 7ft 1 and 7/8ths and anyone who says different is 'fallacious'. He might shrink anywhere from 1.5-2 inches during a day though, so could potentially vary a bit more than common sized men.

I'm buying Lance's 6ft 2 claim.
Andrea said on 1/Oct/14
In The Wire, in 5 seasons (if i'm not wrong), i never saw a guy who was taller than him... He really can look very tall on the screen, of course his body proportions help, as you say.
Here's an interesting comparison, Rob:

Click Here
Now, we know Joe is a weak 6'5, like 194-195... Lance can look near 6'3 in the first photo and more around 6'2 in the second one (where Joe seems to have a bit of camera advantage)... And notice Joe's footwear, i think he has some advantage over Lance. What do you think, Rob? 6'2 flat is quite unlikely, IMO. He's gotta throw some height off
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
He's nearer 6ft3 than 6ft2...
Editor Rob
he's said he's 6ft 2 fact one on his twitter which I'll mention above. The photo isn't there but he had posted one of him and Kareem, see it Here
Andrea said on 9/Apr/14
Rob, if you think Fraser measured somewhere between 6'2 and 6'3, why giving him the full 6'3?
Editor Rob
I mean he might have, and be the reason he switched between 6ft 2 and 3. I think he generally looks nearer 6ft 3 than 2, he could fall in that 6ft 2.75 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jan/14
He can pass for 6ft4 w/h his build. I'm in the exact same boat. At 6ft3.5 w/h a lean frame, long legs and smallish head, I get mistaken for 6ft5 quite often.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/14
Could be another 'Brendan Fraser' type guy who rounds down an inch, Rob?
Editor Rob
I think fraser giving 6ft 2 and 3 could be a case of he's maybe measured somewhere in between at one point.

few round down...but there will be cases of modesty, I think Jack Coleman is a good example.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/14
"Lance Reddick's height is 6ft 2.75in (190cm)"

Similiar to Idris Elba.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Dec/13
The Rock would be taller than this guy
Emily said on 5/Dec/13
He kind of has a supermodel frame, long legs, small head.
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Oct/13
Cole, it's perfectly reasonable that a guy who gets measured let's say 6'2.5 just goes with 6'2 and doesnt care about that half inch more... He looks taller than 6'2 to me, he's at least 1.5 inch taller than Joshua Jackson for example. He's an humble guy, as you say, so maybe he really doesnt care about height and just claims 6'2. Not everybody is like a Justin Timberlake who claims to be 6'2 when in reality he is just 5'11 range... In conclusion, i think he's gotta be at least 6'2.5!
Balrog said on 25/Jul/13
I think he's still taller than this but at least now he is listed at a solid 189 cm.
Lo sgozzatore said on 22/Jul/13
It's not he can pull off looking that range, he NEVER looks under that mark and most of the time he looks taller than that! I'm watching The Wire and he always looks the tallest! In two season, i still havent found someone taller than him
Balrog said on 21/Jul/13
Rob if you give 3/4 of an inch to Lee Pace why not to Reddick? I mean he always looks 6'3'' to me.
Editor Rob
maybe I'll put reddick right on the 2.5 then since he can pull off looking the range.
Balrog said on 19/Jul/13
Reddick always has 1.5 - 2" on Jackson he gotta be taller than this.
Lo sgozzatore said on 30/Jun/13
So you're saying Coleman could actually be under 6'2? O_O
Editor Rob
no, but some people can appear taller than you end up measuring them. Good posture, different physiques can add or even remove how we see people in person.

Lance has got a physique and stance that can make him look 6ft 3.
Lo sgozzatore said on 28/Jun/13
Even Jack Coleman came out with 6'2. But he's still listed at 6'2.5 :)
Reddick with Bowler looks at least 6'2.5-6'3 range, i doubt he's under that
Editor Rob
Coleman looked 6ft 2.5, but then so can the guy I ended up measuring sub 6ft 2!
Lo sgozzatore said on 27/Jun/13
Better answer connor's supersmart question than listen to me, Rob?
Editor Rob
lance can appear 189 and 90 at times, but he look a strong 6ft 2 and came out with that, maybe he can be 6ft 2.5 on the nose.
Lo sgozzatore said on 26/Jun/13
Rob, just give him 6'2.5... He's gotta be at least that. Maybe hes shaved half an inch away when he claimed 6'2 or maybe it was a mistake! With Bowler, he does look near 6'3! You also have guys like Jack Coleman or Geoff Stults that both claimed 6'2 but are listed taller...
Lo sgozzatore said on 25/Jun/13
Rob, you're right. It actually sucks! But i've seen the movie you talked about and Reddick does look more than just 2 inches taller than Bowler. He looks like 3-3.5 inches taller, maybe it's just the camera angles... He for sure does look taller than 6'2 flat, if Bowler is a legit 6' guy
Lo sgozzatore said on 25/Jun/13
Rob, here he is with Grant Bowler, that you met. Only 2 inches, huh?
Click Here
I also noticed that he always tilt his head down so he probably has a 5 inches eyelevel, at least!
Editor Rob
it's not exactly a posed shot.
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Jun/13
Rob, is there a possibilty you will meet this guy in the future? That would be interesting! I mean, he really does look taller than the 6'2 he claims. I thought he was at least a big 6'3 guy!
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have any immediate hopes, although in the future you never know
Balrog said on 18/Feb/13
Man I thought this guy was an easy 6'3''. He looks very tall!
Lo sgozzatore said on 25/Jan/13
He did look noticeably taller than Terry O'Quinn in Lost
SAK said on 7/Jan/13
189cm is actually closer to 6f2.5, then 6ft2.25.
Mathew said on 7/Jan/13
Yes this guy is a quite strong 6'2", 6'2.25" is a better listing than the flat 6'2".
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 23/Dec/12
This guy totally looks like me, except for the fact that I'm not bald and black, but our face and physique are very similar.

Looks taller than 6'2.25 to me, 6'2.5 can be closer to the truth.
jtm said on 8/Nov/12
why can't you just put him at 6'2 flat? the .25 just makes it confusing.
Lo sgozzatore said on 7/Nov/12
O yeah, perfect example of one inch difference: Click Here
Right, Rob?
Editor Rob
of course at times he looks a good 4cm taller (or more in some scenes), Jackson can look just 185cm at times
Aragorn 5'11 said on 5/Nov/12
Which interview was that, Rob?????!!!!!!!! (Where Lance said he's 6'2)
Editor Rob
Sam said on 5/Nov/12
I agree that this guy maybe undercutting his own height a bit. Maybe he measured 6'2.5"-6'2.75" and rounded down. He does have good posture and a thin frame, but it looks like he'd have an edge over 6'2" even. Look at him next to 6'1.5" listed Joshua Jackson:

Click Here
Lo sgozzatore said on 5/Nov/12
Yeah, that's crazy! So i'm not the only one that this listing is pretty crazy! Even a Kevin Costner claimed 6' but still gets listed at 6'1... That doesnt mean anything! You wanna keep Reddick at 6'2? Ok, but at least downgrade Jackson to 6'0.5!
Lo Sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/12
Come on, that's ridicolous! Terry O'Quinn must be 6'0 max then, John Noble not over 5'11, Joshua Jackson 6'0.5 tops! You have guys like Clive Owen at 6'2 who are nowhere as tall as Lance!
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/12
I'm really shocked Rob O_O Seriously, this is the most shocking height on here! He gets listed at 6'4 and i actually thought he was all that height! 6'2 seems very delusional!
Editor Rob
he claims six two, it's not so shocking to me.
Editor Rob said on 1/Nov/12
Actually I had this guy too high, he only says he's 6ft 2.
Lo sgozzatore said on 21/Oct/12
Sorry, i just realized she's 5'7, i confused her with the other girl you met! Maybe he's really 6'3 but he always looks very tall, unlike other 6'3 and even 6'4 guys!
Lo sgozzatore said on 21/Oct/12
Rob, here a pic of him with Beth Riesgraf, that you just met.
Click Here
She seems to be wearing 3 inches shoes, so she's gotta be around 5'11.5 in them. Lance really doesnt look less than 5 inches taller than her. So let's say he's 6'4.5 (min) in shoes, take 1 inch away and he isn't under 6'3.5! He probably is closer to 6'4 than 6'3. He looks taller than many 6'4 on here, like Joel Mchale...
Editor Rob
not sure she'd be 5ft 11.5 in those heels...they'd need to give 4.5 actual inches for that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/12
He could be 192cm
ANDREA[ITA] said on 31/Aug/12
Rob, so you rule out 6'4? To me he looks more 6'4 than a lot of celebs listed here at 6'4!
Editor Rob
i think slim frame can make him looks quite tall, but on wire I didn't think he looked as tall as that
ANDREA[ITA] said on 30/Aug/12
Rob, why dont you gave 6'4? He made terry o'quinn look short on Lost, but then again terry didnt look 187 next to lots of the losties!
