How tall was Michael Clarke Duncan

Michael Clarke Duncan's Height

6ft 4 ¼ (193.7 cm)

American actor, best remembered for roles in films like The Green Mile, Armageddon and Planet of the Apes. He once mentioned his height and weight, saying "I'm 6'5", 315 pounds", although in a 2011 Rotten Tomatoes interview said "When they see me -- I'm like 6'4, 6'5 -- they go, "Wow, I thought you were taller." I'm like, "No, I'm not. I'm not taller, I'm not bigger." And I weigh 280 now! Some people saw that John Coffey, when I filmed that movie, I weighed 360. But it's a big difference from 360 to 280." Michael also mentioned "I'm only an inch taller than Danny Glover."

6'4 without shoes and that 6'5 claim was with shoes. David Morse probably just give off 6'4 impression during peak due to his frame and a hair. 6'3 3/4 a low in the day for Morse peak isn't unfair.
Editor Rob
6ft 4 flat for Duncan is a kind of range he may have measured.

@Junior and Rob: a guy that heavy could lose a full inch morning to evening. My guess is he could’ve been 6’4.5 after a couple hours at the doctor hence the 6’4/6’5 claim. I agree with Junior that he looks an afternoon 6’4” guy
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jun/20
Reading the information above, I see that the late, great Michael Clarke Duncan was modest about his height. What a beautiful role he played in 'The Green Mile', and I can believe he had a heart of gold in real life too. 💛


RIP Michael XXX 🕯️

Guy was 6'4.5 for sure.

at the beginning of the green mile, when they only showed his body and hid his face, I thought it was Shaquille, because it made a 7ft impression.

He's the tallest kingpin in live-action film, but on PS4 kingpin he is 6ft 7in.
I am 188cm said on 8/Feb/20
Hard to gauge his height but definitely a big dude. Would have to go with over 6'4" but at times his frame was huge. Lost a lot of weight later in his career and didn't look as imposing. Must have been a huge muscular man in Green mile, as his frame didn't look out of place when they made him look 7 feet tall.

I agree. MCD was no less than 193 peak and I can buy 6'4.25" peak for him. Don't know about Morse though.
berta said on 3/Nov/18
i think he and david morse was the same height both legit 193 guy with a chanse of tiny fraction over
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Oct/18
I think MCD have already lost height during his mid 40s look good 2cm shorter than Kobe Bryant. Click Here If is the case Kobe was atually 6'5 then MCD holds well at 6'4 1/4.
Matt6'5 said on 6/May/18
Editor Rob:

I've been looking at pictures of MCD with Will Ferrell from 2006 (Talledaga Nights movie). Will Ferrell would've been 39 and presumably at or very close to 6'3" then. Judging by this, could an arguement of 6'4 1/2 be made for a 49 year old MCD? Do you think he could've hit 6'5" as a young man (pre-bodybuilding days)?
berta said on 11/Apr/18
beside steven seagal, david hasselhoff kobe bryant and loue ferringo. the 189 guy from the tv show he was in and ryean reynolds with 1 icnh slouch he didnt look taller than at best 193 in any photo with any ofthem an in some photos 6 ffot 3 flat. well he wasnt that short of course but i can believe 192,5-193 is very possible
Perry wilson said on 5/Feb/18
He is trying to do what he said he would in campaign just hope he can get rid of obama care for good I’m ok with what he is trying to do just hope the people get onboard and work with him
Canson said on 30/Jan/18
@Tarinator: that puts him more 6’4” Rock was under 6’3” by that stage if he even ever was 6’3”. Today 6’2” tho

MCD peak was prob what Rob has him
Tarinator 6'1.75 said on 11/Jan/18
I think he could pull off 6’4.5” fairly well even before he passed away. 6’4” seems too short as he had the Rock by 1.5”.
Canson said on 28/Oct/17
As listed. A guy with his weight could be 195-196 out of bed and dip to 193 easily
Ricky said on 26/Oct/17
He was a half inch over 6'4" in his prime,I'll give him peak of 6'4.5" very comfortably.
Canson said on 22/Oct/17
Peak height prob 6’4.25-6’4.5 before he died flat 6’4” but nothing less. He was def a legit 6’4” or strong 6’4”
lee168cm said on 10/Oct/17
You should add sin city to his credits. Terrific performance in that
Afka9 said on 18/Jul/17
Already he is too tall man but i thought he was about 7 feet when i was watching the green mile
Dwayne said on 20/Jun/17
Rob in his early 40's do you think he would have lost some height I can see a guy of his statue losing a bit of height when he hit an age like 43, 44 and staying that same height until he died?
Editor Rob: there is a chance. Some will succumb to a bit of loss in early 40's and never be aware, through 20 years of lifting weights...others may never push things far enough, or have good genetics and maintain better disc nutrition and health than others...
Dwayne said on 19/Jun/17
I think in the movie Daredevil Michael had a good 2 inches on Ben Affleck when they had the final fight.
Canson said on 3/Jun/17
Peak 6'4.25
Canson said on 26/Mar/17
@SJH: that's maybe an inch but more like 2cm. Duncan has his head tilted down. I think a prime height of what rob has fits MCD well. Maybe he lost a fraction before he died and was solid 6'4 whereas Kobe is 195cm ish
S.J.H said on 6/Mar/17

Michael Clarke Duncan was 6'5 and looked 300 but in Green Mile he looked 7'4 and 400 lbs
jake said on 16/Feb/17
Video with Conan not good he is much closer to the camera, HOWEVER with Kobe you could argue anything from 6'3 3/4" to 6'5", personally i'mma go with 6'3 3/4"-6'4 1/4" so six-four or as good as too me,
berta said on 14/Feb/17
yeah hea really looks like he is over 6 foot 4 with conan. but in generall i thohught barely 6´4. but maybe he was this tall
Big Lewis said on 26/Jan/17
A comfortable 6 5. definitely has two inches on conan at least. Click Here
berta said on 30/Dec/16
to me a guy like david moorse could look little taller than this guy i think the chanses are that morse was this height and michael clarce duncan was 6´4
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Nov/16
Michael played such a beautiful-hearted person in the film 'the Green Mile' that I get a warm feeling at the sight of his chubby, smiling face!
I know he was in 'Armageddon' looking nowhere near as tall, and I liked him in that as well
what with his funny little rendition of the 60's song 'Leaving On a Jet Plane', but for me his performance as John Coffey in 'the Green Mile' was beyond comparison. We were also alerted to the fact that Stephen King has a really good side to him from that film and novel!
I suppose when you play a 7ft9 giant (and yes, I DID fall for it!), coming back down to 6ft4 isn't all that exceptional, but it does, of course, fall into the 'very tall' category and will do so for generations to come when man's average has shot up, as it inevitably does!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/16
Not a flat 6ft4 guy
berta said on 24/Nov/16
193 evening
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
194/195cm range peak. Similar range to Tyler Perry and Michael Strahan I imagine
NX said on 28/Aug/16
In the green mile he looks gigantic, even towering over 6'3 David Morse, why did he look so huge in that movie?
Zoom Omega Distortion said on 11/Aug/16
Great talent, taken too soon :/ But I believe his peak was 6'4.5" or 6'4.75" ! But in his 50s he probably dropped to 6'4 flat, never under 6'4 though ! :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/16
Looked more like 6ft4 flat in the last year of his life
Canson said on 29/Jun/16
@Bobby: agreed. I'd say he's at least a solid 6'4 bare minimum 193 cm. he's big too which may give an impression but without a doubt he has 6'4 proportions maybe even closer in height to us
Crane said on 20/May/16
Yesterday, I watched the first Scorpion King. He is every bit of how a true 6'4 guy looks like! Plus, he edged The Rock almost 1.5 inches in that movie.
Easily, a solid 6'4.25.
bobbyh3342 said on 27/Apr/16
you guys that post your photos saying mcd is only 6 '3 is almost laughable I look at the same pics and still cant see what your seeing, maybe you don't know what to look for.. rob has him pegged. 6 4.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16
"Michael Clarke Duncan's height is 6ft 4½in (194.31cm)"
ken-6-4 said on 10/Oct/15
looking at pictures of him and The Rock, 6'4"ish looks good
KH said on 28/Jul/15
A god inch and a half at least on Will Farrell in Rick Bobby it's clear shot of them all walking in a line right at the camera. Very close to 6'5.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Oct/14
Haha they made him look like 7 ft 9 in The Green Mile.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Oct/14
Rob, is the full 6ft4½ possible?
[Editor Rob: he could maybe have passed for it]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/14
Rob, are you still convinced that he was a strong 6ft4?

Many people here seem to think he was 6ft3 range tops
[Editor Rob: yeah I think he was that, I can't believe he was only 6ft 3 range.]
Andrea said on 8/Mar/14
Rob, here with Zachary Levi:
Maybe it's not the best shot to compare them, but he easily looks 4 cms taller than him to me. BUT Levi has Converse and MCD has at least 1.5 inch shoes, so he was in fact a bit taller than Levi at that time. About 6'4 was right, maybe a bit over it when he was younger?
[Editor Rob: I think his listing is ok, a strong 6ft 4 range, somewhere near 6ft 4.5 in 20's?]
Lorne said on 20/Feb/14
I liked the quote about him being "an inch taller than Danny Glovet" it validates both they're listings. You should add it back...
Lomax said on 18/Feb/14
On the green mile when he was walking on an elevated ramp. During the stand still scenes he was standing on boxes. He's taller then Geoff stultz on the TV series the finder. Stultz is like 6'3" or 6'3 1/2" and Duncan has an inch on him easily. R.I.P Michael Clarke Duncan my favorite actor
MoWright said on 27/Dec/13
He was taller in the green mile but only bc they made him stand on a box to make him seem as a very very intimidating figure that looked like he could hurt anyone
Zen911 said on 2/Dec/13
The Green Mile was a mystical/horror movie, and it needed our first look at Coffee to be awesome, thus the entrance with 6' Hanks and 6'4" Morse looked absolutely towered over by Duncan who in real life was not much taller than Morse. Just a guess but Duncan must have been wearing around 8" platforms.
Nenninn said on 31/Oct/13
add 0.25 for peak

Lenad said on 25/Apr/13
Rob he looked huge in the green mile, after watching it you might need to consider upgrading him haha RIP Michael
[Editor Rob: put G in the big blocks that Michael wore for that movie and he'd look 6ft 2!]
wiltonstilts said on 12/Apr/13
Ahhh 6'5 that's what he is.
Radek said on 10/Apr/13
MCD is 194/ 6'4 1/2 , you can see he has easily 1,5 inches over the rock (solid 6'3)
Mvt said on 17/Mar/13
RIP I THOUGHT HE WAS 7'5 ft tall cause the other guy and Tom hanks are atleast 6'4 or 6'5

Just found ! Loved any movie he was in. I'm 6' 4" and I'm 50 yrs old so no matter how tall he was, I will miss him as a actor.

He looked massive in the Green Mile, I would have guessed 6'8 or 6'9
Donna said on 18/Sep/12
How silly is it to have a page that discusses his height! I didnt know that b4 reading. Btw, you CAN see his feet Several times in Green Mile! And unless you sold him steriods and watched him swallow it, stop lying on the dead! Show some respect!
TURTLEBABY said on 16/Sep/12
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/12
I'd give him 6ft4.5. His health problems over the last few years may have brought him down a bit. Still can't believe he's gone. I watched The Green Mile last night (one of my favourite movies) and his performance is still a real tearjerker. He should have won the Oscar for it, hands down.
Bigben said on 12/Sep/12
In the green mile I think they just used good camera angles to make him seem taller, he's the same height as David morse who plays one of the guards. But I do agree he looks like he's 7 feet in that movie. I'm 6 foot 9 and he'd looks over my head

[Editor Rob: big blocks on feet like Humphrey Bogart sometimes wore.]
DDuyke said on 10/Sep/12
Height can vary; in the morning most people are up to one inch taller than later in the day. See for yourself. (I am 6'2 in the AM then 6' 1.5" later in day).
Frank said on 7/Sep/12
It looked like in the Green Mile he was standing on something they never showed his feet They wanted him to look about 7ft I wonder if the the Steriods he maybe took caused him to have the heart problem that killed him ?? he was a young guy RIP
John said on 6/Sep/12
I love The Green Mile and his role and acting in the film. R.I.P Big Guy

Don't matter how tall he was physically. He was a giant force in his acting and truly seened to be an extremely nice man. But, I would not want to be on his bad side since I am way shorter and lighter and smart enough to be respectful of a giant. Prayers with his loved ones!!! Seemed like a very gentle giant. God bless his soul.
Scott W. said on 3/Sep/12
I am a legitimate 6' 3" and 300 pounds. I met him at a party in 08' and I was slightly taller than him, both of us having the same heel height on our shoes. He told us he had slimmed his body weight down to "the mid 200's" due to having a hard time finding work at 300 pounds plus. He was very thick in the chest, traps and upper arms with good sized legs also. He told us about the different camera angles etc. they used to make him seem bigger in the Green Mile and everyone says they think he would be bigger when they meet him. 6'3" max.

lucas said on 1/Sep/12
In actuality, Michael Clarke Duncan is of a similar height as his co-star David Morse and is a couple inches shorter than James Cromwell. Creative camera angles were used to create the illusion that Duncan as John Coffey towered over the prison staff, even Brutal Howell and Warde. from green mile.
mrrandom said on 27/Aug/12
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is 6'5(legit height), and they stood right beside each other and looked to be the same height so I think that makes him 6'5.
Boeing17 said on 25/Aug/12
even in the morning i don't think he is over 193 cm , probably 192 legit guy , looks 192 next to any legit 6'2 ( 188 guy )

Im pretty shure he is 6'5 . Due to his poor posture he may sometimes look like 6'3 , but 6'2 is just a joke for this hudge guy

I have had the opportunity to meet Michael Clarke Duncan on Melrose in 2005 and I can tell you that at a distance he looks as though he is 7 foot tall! When I met him and shook his hand,my hand essentially...disappeared,lol. I am 6'1 and although he is truly 6'5-6'6ish,he is indeed;"A massive man"!! Wide as a door,Jaw like a Mastiff and probably one of the nicest people you ever want to meet,get well Brother!

l believe that Michael is 6ft 5inches tall as claimed, why do all of you find that so difficult to accept, l have two uncles who are 6' 4" and two sones who stand at 6'2", there is a mature man who lives in my suburb who towers at 7' and he is as broad as he is tall and not an inch of fat on him and he has never been on steroids either. there are a few other men in the area who have to stoop to walk into a room and the door in too low for them and a young police woman who stands at 6'9" and she is the shortest of her siblings and shorter than her father. SO GIVE MICHAEL A BREAK

MCD is 6'3, and that's really tall anyways.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 22/Jan/12
Omg, Lan Jiao you've gone crazy. 6'2 is out of the question for him. He looks surely taller than 6'2 flat. But even 6'4.25 sounds impossible to me, 6'3 range is a safe bet (min 6'3- max 6'3.75)
steven said on 16/Jan/12
he look like a 6'2 guy. maybe 6'2.5 look 1.5" shorter than 6'4 david hasselhoff
pat said on 3/Jan/12
All are big,period.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 30/Dec/11
Ok, then he's gotta be a very bad posture since he always looks in the 6'3 range, he's about the same of Geoff Stults, he's like 2-3 cms shorter than David Hasselhoff and i could go on but if you think he's this tall, let it alone :) just like you do with Will Smith, Jim Carrey, Clive Owen and all the upgraded company! Let's say he's 6'4.25 as much as Glenn is 5'8.5
ANDREA[ITA] said on 29/Dec/11
ROb, you actually think he's closer to 6'5 than 6'3? (6'4.25 means that)
[Editor Rob: I think if he stands tall for a measurement he's in the 6ft 4-4.25 range.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Dec/11
Rob, you still think he's a legit 194? Would you be wondered if he measured under that mark? He really doesnt look over 190-191 everywhere! 6'5 is hilarious for him, i dont think he neither reaches that in shoes
[Editor Rob: around 6ft 4 I think is nearer than just 6ft 3]
Carmen said on 2/Dec/11
MCD is a large man. Considering MOST of leading Hollywood men are short and wear some sort of lifts the big men stand out and seem huge. That's why big men like John Wayne and Charleton Heston always seemed bigger than life on the big screen.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 22/Nov/11
ahahah where the hell he can be 6'4.25? That's a very big height... A legit one, i mean! He for sure looks huge in frame and legit very tall guy but he's no more than 191! At least an inch shorter than his listed height! What i wonder is: why a already big guy like him should claim 2 inches taller?
LAN Jiao said on 16/Nov/11
He is 6'5. John Terry n Will Ferrell 6'3. Geoff Stults 6'4.5 haa..

The angle is not the best but you can clearly see the difference.
6'3 or 190-191cm fits him well.
Silent d said on 8/Nov/11
He is huge. Very scary man but good actor. He towers over charlie sheen and jon cryer. He was tall next to 6 foot 6 ryan stiles. I read somewhere that he is only 6 foot 1 which is outrageous. I always thought he was 6 foot 3 but 194cm is not impossible. 6 foot 3.
LAN Jiao said on 6/Nov/11
someone pointed MCD is really 6'4. im tire of the fight. let it be.. i"ll say he is 6'5 as he claim. respect to MCD add on his heavier than 315lbs. his 325.
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
no andrea,
much happen MCD is 190cm and not over. Geoff Stults atually claim 6'2 , rob generous enough gave the 0.5" to Geoff. MCD atually look merely same height as Geoff Stults , but disadvantage bald head and a slight bit posture makes him at best 0.5" top Geoff Stults. either way to say MCD is 6'2.5 Geoff is 6'2 or MCD is 6'2.75 and Geoff Stults is 6'2.25 since Geoff Stults did't claim higher than 6'2(188) instate of 6'2.25(188.5). funny thing is on ben affleck page someone insist affleck is 6'2 while he was nearly 2" shorter than MCD in 1997 armageddon in and out in film premiere, instate of compare legit6'2 Geoff Stults is only 0.5" max shorter than MCD. fact was MCD is dead between 189-190cm added him compare d wade whose between 191-192cm, Geoff Stults 188(fraction over possible), ben affleck 185-186cm dead it but fans or ex-lovers on his page insisted him high as 6'

Rob what about 6'3 or 6'3.25 for him? He really doesnt look over 190-191 with a lot of legit tall guys! He's max 1-2 cms taller than legit 6'2.5 Geoff Stults! Downgrade by an inch! He looks very tall and very broad but 190-191 is his real height! The listed height is with shoes on!
daminator47 said on 29/Oct/11
legit 6'3 no less no more.
PatB said on 25/Oct/11
The odd thing about a truly big guy like MCD is that he actually benefits from lifts more than tiny guys like Al Pacino. Al often looks funny in lifts but large men with big upper bodies can appear better proportioned if they're stretched out a bit. The same is true for Chris Hemsworth (Thor). They can look blocky barefoot.
LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
Geoff Stults is 6'2only by his word. MCD is well half inch standing straight taller. So MCD 189.5cm still not 6'3(190.5).
Physics Enemy said on 19/Oct/11
Viper, if you draw a line from the top of MCD's head, you'll see he's a hair (0.25 inch) taller than Stultz. You're fooled by Stultz's hair. MCD's feet are also a little more spread apart, so another 0.25" inch for that. That puts him at 6' 3" next to Stultz.
LAN Jiao said on 17/Oct/11
"I'm really not that big. I'm only an inch taller than Danny Glover.".

MCD is completely biggish like thomas tiny lister but MCD shorter.. MCD 300pounds and 6-3 (190cm) can be lowest 6^2.5 (189cm) possible look this mark next to solid 191cm dwayne wade(192 bare by NBA measure). MCD should had blame why Geoff Stults claim himself 6^2 going honest why not claim 6'4.75 so he could be fool people he is 6'5 and weir to MCD himself why 6'2 Geoff apear tallish than 6'3.5 brush up hair ben affleck by 3cm next to him why? also why MCD saw 6'1 claim bruce willis shorter 4inch by him but only look 5'10 next to 5'9 honest claim justin long? MCD 6'5 claim works out a headache for himself past 10years. LOL.
Viper said on 11/Oct/11
Agreed hes 6-3 at most.

Actually he looks 6-2 range with Stultz

he's min 189 max 192!
LAN Jiao said on 4/Oct/11
Geoff Stults is only 6'2.5 while MCD look only a cm taller while closer to camera. Maybe he did't stand well his foot. But much happenly to explain why 6'3.5 d wayne looks taller with MCD picture someone post. Give or take MCD is 6'3 flat.

Looked really big in The Legend of Chun-li but although he claimed his mark as 6'5" he is nothing more than 6'4.5" so I guess that Duncan is another actor who claimed his morning height.

Looked David Morse's height in The Green Mile

no he did not, in the movie the character he plays is over 7ft and looks it in the movie Click Here they achieved this by having duncan stand on a 1ft platform in the long shots, you can even see the platform in the cell as he stands up just before his execution scene
Cranberries said on 15/Jun/11
6'4" max. He's big and bloated, but not all that tall. Looked David Morse's height in The Green Mile, but obviously there were a lot of angles going on there.

Looks about Jose Conseco's height. Conseco is listed as 6'3" and 6'3.5"; I'm guessing he's somewhere in between, putting Duncan at 6'3.5". He may have been 6'4" at peak, but he really needs a downgrade IMO.

PatB said on 12/Jun/11
I'm almost excatly the same height and weight as Duncan. I used to be a bit heavier than him but now I'm about five pounds lighter. I think of myself as large but not extremely so. Yet Duncan has made a career playing giants on screen.

I think part of the problem is that he plays roles so often in Bruce Willis movies. Willis is a small man. If you met him on the street you would not be impressed with him physically. He was a light comedian on TV and then he won the lead in "Die Hard". Suddenly he became an action hero - a larger than life character. But in fact Willis is only big on the big screen. He's a very fine actor but he is a very improbable man of action - too frail and small.

So in a movie like "The Whole Nine Yards" we adjust our scale of reference to make Willis seem like football player of street cop - roles that he plays. That makes Michael Clark Duncan - who could in fact be a football player or street cop in real life - into something like Godzilla.

Walk downtown anywhre in America and you will see plenty of guys Duncan's size. But in the movies where almost every male lead is tiny and has to wear lifts, he looks like a hulking monster.
GaryTaylorFletcher said on 10/Jun/11
He looked at least 2-3 inches shorter than Herb in Two and a half men, and he is 6´5" so, Michael Clarke Duncan can not possibly be this tall? 6´2" in my opinion.

Agree with Larc. I can't believe people still believe in this 6'5 sh*t. He is clearly shorter than David Hasselhoff and Seagal
T said on 22/May/11
Truthman you say my photo has Michael much closer to the camera than you post pics where the cameraman is right next to Seagal? Way to go against your own logic.

At least my pic is far enough that we can actually see below their waste and know it's a pretty good angle. Your pics we can't even see if they're properly standing or not.

You achieve muscles with steroids, not height, as that's in the genes. That's not steroids, as they're killers. Men like this don't achieve such buff-ness without spending alot of time in the gym. Just check out his age people. That's official sexy buff-ness.

6-3.5 is the absolute most you could give him. Hes probably just 6-3 since 6-4 David Hasselhoff had more than just a half inch on him. And 6-3 3/4 measured Dwayne Wade had an inch on him.

And 6-3 MCD makes the Rock 6-2 at best.
BigJoe said on 29/Jun/09
I stand 6'4" without shoes, add an inch with my shoes. When I Met Michael at an event we saw eye to eye, so I'd guess that 6'4"-6'5" has got to be pretty close. Of course, he's got 60-70lbs on me so even my wife thought I looked small next to him.
Mathew said on 12/Jun/09
James Avery at 6'2" can't be right. He's at least 6'3". He was more than an inch taller than Will Smith.
Chris said on 7/Jun/09
Hmm. There is NO WAY this guy is anywhere near 6'5. Have you seen Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins? He looks about 4 inches taller than Zoe Saldona... Also, he was on 2 and a half men and he didn't tower over anyone in the cast. Charlie Sheen is not a tall man and at 6'5, he would have looked like a goliath next to them. I should add that I am a solid 6'5 and with shoes on I am about the height of most doorways. Watch MCD when he gets near a door frame. He looks to be only about 6'2 1/2. All that muscle makes him look much more massive.

This guy is no 6ft5 never been in his whole life. Probably not a full 6ft4 either. Looks 6ft3ish to me usually. At a solid 6'3 he remains pretty tall but he sure as hell isn't 6'5 barefoot.
Big King said on 15/Apr/09
I mean, a 6'5" guy starts to appear huge but Duncan does not seem so tall. I would list him as a weak 6'4" guy.

Why does it matter, He is still fine!
James S said on 28/Mar/09
a reasonable 6 ft 4 but no more

There is maybe only a half inch difference between them. So Duncan can't be anything above 6'4" if the rock is already at 6'3" on CelebHeights. See: Click Here
Big King said on 24/Mar/09
Yes, he stated his height as 6'5" but is he really that tall? He's no more than 6'4.5" or even an estimate of 6'4" can't be wrong for Duncan but 6'5" is a bit too exaggerated.

Michael IS 6'5 people! He's a good friend and my son IS 6'5 and they are the EXACT same height! and my son was just measured properly for a physical. You cant tell EVERYTHING from pictures and television, too may different angles. Just like a couple weeks ago posted a picture of him on their site saying he looked sickly and had lost tons of weight, the caption said "look what he looks like now! " and people were say "OMG , poor guy" ..well the NEXT day theres a picture of him at the lakers game on a totally different website and he looks HUGE and they are commenting on how "swoll" and big he looks ... The pix were taken within 24 hours of each other and it was hilarious the conclusion that were drawn on both websites by people just looking a a PHOTO, one with a "bad" angle and one with a "good" angle. the "good" and "bad" would be depending on wether he wanted to look thinner or heavier...LOL

Graham said on 4/Feb/09
Levi is 6'3.5", and MCD looked about the same. But Levi wears "Chucks", which are flat, so MCD might actually be only 6'3". Viper tends to take an inch from everyone, but seems to be right on this one. Problem is, I'm 6'2.5" and I cant see myself being almost eye-to-eye with MCD.

Big King said on 9/Oct/08
It seems that you don't get it. 6'2" for the Rock is ridiculous enough! How can the Rock be only a half inch taller than Smith?? There are definitely two inches difference between them. Duncan might be 6'4 1/2" but that's just his minimum height.
Viper said on 8/Oct/08
Will Smith is around 6-0 1/2 to maybe 6-1 in reality. And since whne did Duncan shrink? LOL Youre dumb. Duncan is around 6-3-6-3 1/2. Rock 6-2.
Big King said on 8/Oct/08
Viper, your height estimations that the Rock is 6'2" is LAUGHABLE because he's definitely taller than 6'2" Will Smith and please do not say that Smith is only 6'1", no he stated his height as 6'2" and he looks exactly two inches shorter than the Rock who stated his height as 6'4". Also Duncan claimed being 6'5" and he looks at least an inch taller than the Rock. So many celebrities can't lie about their heights and also the height pessimist Rob has listed Duncan at 6'4 1/4". Duncan is 6'5" at his peak and that's the result. End of discussion.

Well, I'm not sure about this guy if he is really 6'5" but somehow it would be funny if it is so. If he's really 6'5" then he is exactly as tall as Balrog from Street Fighter who is 6'5" too. I also heard that Duncan will play Balrog in the new Street Fighter film what comes out in 2009.
