@Rob,

What do you think of this photo with 5'7.75" King Bach?

I don't know if the ground is level, but when on level ground with say Riley Smith who I've met, he's certainly taller than how me by over an inch.

If Ving Rhames is 5'11" so Mekhi Phifer can't be over 5'9"-5'9.25" max, next to him in Dawn of the dead he looks very close to 2 inches shorter than Rhames. In Clockers, he looks more close to be 4 inches under Keith David (6'1") than 3 inches. Plus, Rhames is often little slouching on the photos with Phifer that I seen. Just my opinions.

height is hard to deduce sometimes but in that picture with larry david he's not wearing the boots he wore on 8 mile...My friend is 5'10 and when he wears his 8 mile boots he's over 6 foot 1 and with 1 inch lifts..he's definitely not average height..

5'7" is bogus, in Miracle Day he is a good few inches taller than Wayne Knight and is around 2-3 inches shorter than Barrowman. think he's as listed.

I saw him last year, and he is a little closer to 5-10.

Eminem is 5'8" and he is about 2" taller in 8 mile. So I am saying about 5'10"

After seeing the Larry David screenshot I'd say he needs downgraded at least an inch

id say 5foot8.5 he was about 2 inches shorter than ving rhames in dawn of the dead. and doesn't look much taller than gary sinise in impostor.

adamz i was actually surprised that he looked that much shorter than rhames because i always knew rhames was 5'10 since he was shorter than bruce willis in pulp fiction but who knows what he was wearing.

In Dawn of the Dead, there are a few scenes with him very close to Ving Rhames and he looks a solid 2 inches shorter than him. I always thought Ving Rhames was 6' on the head and because of that I had this guy pegged at 5'10". Either Ving is taller or this guy is shorter than what Rob has listed.

This seems accurate. On the new show "Lie to me" he doesn't look anything above 5'9.5 considering I strongly believe Tim Roth is 5'6.5. There is a clear 3 inch difference. He comes off looking taller due to good proportions and a well developed upper body. But he is never 5'11". He is totally average.

in the movie O Josh Hartnett only had about 4 inches on Mekhi Phifer. Josh is a solid 6'3, so mekhi is prob 5'11
Bruce said on 4/Dec/08
if this guy is 5'10" then you have to change Idris Elba's height to 6'4" because he has 6" plus on him
leonari said on 11/Aug/08
the guy looks short because he has a huge muscle upper body. enormous on ER. good height. 5'10 it is.

I've seen Mekhi Phifer at a Casino before, and he was getting of the table waiting for Chris Mills to finish up, and I was taking his seat, so I started talking to him, I'm about a flat 6', and I was about 5 feet away from him and he looked the same height, I'd say 5'11 shortest, 6' 1/2'' max

he used a 1 in platform when chatting with taller costars
dmeyer said on 3/Mar/08

jinbou said on 22/Jan/08
jonah, lighten up. he said that 5 months ago & maybe english aint his 1st language. hell i didnt speak english until i was about 6.
hanoj said on 13/Jan/08
Not as ridiculous as your spelling, Jon Doe. Sorry, a bit below the belt there. He looks an inch taller than Scott Grimes on ER, so 5'9" would be accurate. Not tall, not short.
Jon Doe said on 1/Jul/07
Girls seem to be really inacurate about judging height I mean to say that Mekhi isn't much taller than Prince is rediculous!
Paddington said on 16/Apr/07
He's taller than I imagined. He looks very short on ER, like 5'8", but that might be because of the gigantic Eastern European guy.
Talonda said on 10/Mar/07
Dang........... brother is short for me. But he is still phine.
Jay said on 23/Dec/06
5'10 max for sure, just watched 8 mile again and he looks about 5'9.5
Anonymous said on 14/Oct/05
He's 5'10" flat, cuz in 8 Mile he was about 2 inches taller than Eminem(who is in the 5'8" range), although I think that his dreadlocks made him look taller in the movie.
dmeyer said on 20/Feb/05
i worked on er and he was 177 maybe 178 cm = 5'10''
