Hi Rob!Why he lost that much height at that young age?I think as being normal person,losing 2,5 cm at 64 years old is a very big fraction,can u explain this?
Some people can lose an inch by mid 60's, others make it through with 1/4...can depend on genetics/lifestyle what you lose.

@Rob Do you think he lost anything in the late 2000s or was he still at his peak then?
Might have lost a fraction by then.

He is 5 ft 9.5 at best

for some reason looking at him in old movies hi gives the impression that he is 182-183, pretty tall but then when standing beside someone he really isnt that tall. 180 cm peak. today i have no idea, havent seen him in anything last 10 years

Looks like he'd measure around my height, 5'10 is spot on for this guy.

5'9.5" Tops as per Rob's Picture. The 6 foot listing is sad , but typical. Again, Alot of men inflate their height 2" which is absurd, but anything above that is delusional.
The last thing I remember seeing Mark in, was an episode of Castle...he definitely look shorter than 5ft 9 range stana katic (who was in a heel).

Yeah he did look a solid 5 11 or fairly over average even in 90s in departed was showing his age well under leo.
Poor guy never got a very good role but hey always being a weird creepy dude maybe is cathartic.
It worked for old vincent pryce and cristopher lee.
berta said on 10/May/17
in aliens and a few other old movies he could look 180-82 guy. But in reality i think he was probably 180 cm flat at peak and today down to currnet listing for some reason just by looking at this photo he looks to have lost height
said on 15/Dec/16
A full inch height loss at 60 years old Rob?
Editor Rob: I believe he has lost close to that.
Aza said on 27/Oct/16
Today could imagine his low being 5'9.75. Shrunk i' from peak.

He looks uncannily like Jimmy Caan...

Why does he look 175.5cm
maximus said on 21/Aug/14
If you go by the picture, then he is between 5'9.5" and 5'10"
TJE said on 22/Jul/14
His shoulders are 2.5 inches higher than yours, yet he only looks 1.25 inches taller than you. Weird.
avi said on 7/Jan/14
gonna stick to that 5'10. Rob maybe downgrade time to a strong 5'10 like 5'10.25
Vecrotus said on 10/Nov/13
Looks more like 5ft 9.5-10 than 5ft 10.5in in the photo with Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/13
Rob, if you were to straighten up there you'd look the same height as him
Rhonda said on 17/Jul/13
A strong 5ft10 for sure. He has the big frame of a 5ft10+ guy, look at his chest. anything under 5ft10 is plain wrong.

That's surprising, I tought he was short in The Shawshank Redemption, but that's because Tim Robbins is almost 6'5.
said on 10/Jun/13
Rob you can't seriously say theres 2 inches in this picture can you? he looks to be struggling with 5'9 and change... 1.5 TOPS. i put a picture up for you to look at a year or so ago and you told me there was about 1.5 inch difference maybe 2 and the difference was greater than this!! and you say this is 2 inches! it makes no sense!
[Editor Rob: I think he's around 5ft 10, but maybe could stretch up another half inch]

He looked really tall in Aliens. I thought he would be 6ft 1/2.
said on 7/Feb/13
Rob did hé look as tall as 5'10.5 In person
[Editor Rob: he looks a 5ft 10 guy but I think he can be one of those guys who lifts himself up a bit more for measuring, kind of walks around shorter than he might measure.]

Looks 5"10 here to me
Aragorn 5'11 said on 2/Jan/13
5'9 period. 175cm. If Rob was standing up straight there be an inch in between them. Maybe 5'9.5 on a good day. 5'10.5 is a joke!!
Ice said on 21/Oct/12
6'2 in The Departed , 5'9 in The Sharshawk Redemption ...
said on 25/Jul/12
Maybe 182cm peak, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I'd be surprised if he was that tall after seeing him, I think he may have lost half inch though, but then he's not that old.]
edward said on 3/Aug/11
loool.. i thought this guy was like 5ft9 .. it seems everyone looks shorter next to Tim Robbins.. :D
jake said on 6/Jan/11
Oh right well if you saw him in person obviously you;d have the best idea on his height.
said on 1/Jan/11
Hey Rob, I thought 182 cm was fairer, why the downgrade?
[Editor Rob: how much height has he lost?
he's 54, last year I thought he looked 5ft 10 range, if he was 182cm at 54 I doubt he's lost 3cm of height!]

Listed usually as 185cm. Does look about 4 inches under Tim Robbins in Shawshank Redemption. I'd think he should be listed as 6ft. It's suits him.
Hugh 190cm said on 6/Apr/09
Wow I thought this guy was at least 6ft1!
AshnarLynx said on 23/Oct/07
Dunno, he looked pretty imposing in Aliens. I think he's 6 feet at least. In Shawshank Redemption he looked small next to Tim Robbins, but most actors do. He might've been 6'1.
tchakaman said on 26/Jun/07
Just watched Rush Hour.This guy might just be 5'11 at most. He is more than 2
inches shorter than C. Tucker in Rush Hour. (He might be a relative of Ben "I'm 5'11 but claim to be 6'1" Browder)
