In the photo above he looks like he is in the 5'10 range.

In Homeland, he is clearly shorter than F. Murray Abraham and doesn't tower over Claire Danes.

Mandy Patinkin came over as a hulking great guy in 'Alien Nation'. I remember about that time reading an amusing article about his feminine-sounding name, which ended on the lines of 'Would you say that to his face? Would you want to mess with him?'
I rest my case! I did think he was a good 6ft1 at his peak!

Interesting... the Google has him at a way-too-optimistic 6'1". He never, ever looked as tall as 6' to me, I always thought he was in the 5'11" range.

Please answer Jess's question, I'm really curious too, Rob!! :)
Editor Rob: today he can look 5ft 10 range, although in that photo he is further from the camera. Koch generally looks a guy between 5ft 11-6ft.

I saw him enter the Kelly and Michael show and he didn't look too much taller than Kelly.

How could he possibly be 5-11 when he is considerable shorter than 5-11 Sebastian Koch here, homeland season 5 ep 3.
Angle and positions might play a role but there's still about 2-3 inches unaccounted for.

At age 60 he's lost a little height. I'd say 1cm, maybe 2. But at peak he was definantly a legit 5'11. Within an inch of 6ft Shemar Moore, and looks 4-5cm under Matthew Gray, depending On footwear. Also, he was almost identical to 181cm Cary Elwes. But today doesn't look more than 179cm. B So Mandy Patinkin Height: 5ft10.5in(179cm) B. Peak height was 5ft11(180cm)

Talking about bad posture, look at him in The Hunchback from 1997 where he plays Quasimodo xD

He is clearly several inches shorter than Andre The Giant in Princess Bride.
So I'd say 181.3 cm precisely, just based on how tall he was in comparison to The Giant.

i say that mandy patinkin is about 6'0.75''tall.he is pretty close to 2''shorter than thomas gibson who is 6'2''tall.5'11.5 is totally inaccurate.

Great singer and actor, but 6' is something of a stretch. He might have been 5'11 and 1/2 at his peak and down to 5'11 or 5'11 and 1/4 today.

He looked to be about a good 2 inches taller than James Caan in the Alien Nation movie. Perhaps a bit more. Looked close to 6 foot in that movie. Although Terrence Stamp did appear a little taller. I think 5'11.5 is actually a pretty good guestimate.

He's an even five eleven.

Rob, In case you thought I'd left my celebrity shrinking ways, let me regress. I met Mandy after one of his concerts in D.C. at the Kennedy Center. He tends to hunch over when he speaks to you, whether you are tall or short. Anyway, somewhere, there is a picture of myself, Mandy, and my date, and it will prove that the original "Che Guvara" is no taller than 5-11.

He's never looked anything more than 183 cm to me, so I think his main site is right in referring to him being close to the 182/183 cm mark.
