Wouldn't bet on a big 6'2 for him, but somewhere close to 187 cm is fair.

Mahershala does look 1.25" lower than 6'3 Jim Klock.

Rob, why not just give him the full 6ft2?
In his college basketball career he was described as 6ft4 (at 0:05 mark). Not for a minute suggesting he’s that but a lot of the time players are listed at what they may measure in shoes. I find it unlikely that he’d get called at that if he was under 6ft2. Other articles have him at 6ft3
I think he can look it, although he has a benefit in having a higher eyelevel. I'm sure most who meet him will guess him taller.

Might be 6'1.75" looks it with Viggo Mortensen.

I now think 6ft2 is distinctly possible for him

He’s now getting described 6ft3-4

Should add Moonlight and Green Book to his credits as he won Oscars for these. Sometimes Ali can seem taller or shorter but there's little chance he's over 6'1.5", it fits for now.

Always looked 187 to me, so the listing is spot on

Seems about right in the press photos with Viggo Mortensen. In Green Book in some scenes though he could look nearer 6'3 for some reason.

Rob I honestly can’t see this guy being under 6’ 2”. I mean he towers of Spacey in House of Cards and Spacey isn’t that short of a guy, like 5 feet 10 ish range.
There's a chance, he could be almost 6ft 2

I'll mention his claim at the top thanks.

Him and Mike Coulter is like the same height

Bill Murray was standing behind him at the Golden Globes and looked taller

Legit 6'1", looks a simple 2 inches down by Mike Colter.

Would've guessed around 6'2" from house of cards. Towers over spacey
traq said on 2/Aug/17
he doesnt seem that far from 6'3

Rob, what do you think Barry Jenkins' height is? The guy who directed Moonlight.
Editor Rob: at a quick glance, seems shorter than average, maybe 5ft 6 like Big G.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/17
Colter is 6ft3 so that supports 6ft1-6ft2 for this guy
said on 28/Feb/17
You could argue 1.5 inches shorter than Mike Colter but at times it can appear less of a difference.
I couldn't find a still but near Jeff Bridges at the Oscars he looked scarcely taller, but might have had poorer posture at that point.

Congrats on a well-deserved win last night!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jan/17
he looks very tall on House of Cards
Mike Jones said on 30/Sep/16
Wow! Didnt know he was that tall. On Luke Cage he looks way shorter, I guess his slim build and proportions give a short illusion.
said on 14/Jun/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft2?
Really towers over Kevin Spacey in HOC…
Editor Rob: he can pull off looking near it

Guessed him at 6'2 from watching 4400. Good listing Rob.
