I can understand that, JTM! The parts he plays would make one think he is much taller, but tallness doesn’t come into everything. It’s mindset, and I’m extremely glad that I haven’t got the mindset of one of the characters I’ve seen him play! (Henry - Portrait of a Serial Killer).

Have you seen that movie? It’s a real shocker and earns it 18 certificate hands down!

Cheers to you, JTM! 😄👍

Rooker is definitely one of the toughest, most imposing actors to stand around 5'9". He always looked like someone not to be trifled with, which is why people generally think hes a little taller.
Jtm said on 7/Apr/20
a lot shorter than i thought.

🎁🎂🎈 Happy Birthday Michael! 🎈🎂🎁

Many Happy Returns to Michael Rooker, who is today celebrating his 65th Birthday. I remember him for his part as Henry in “Portrait of a Serial Killer”, wherein he gave a truly spine-chilling performance, but I have plenty of his other films as well.

One excellent actor!

5ft9. 😁👍

I remember Rooker at least an inch taller than Cruise in the film as well and Cruise was probably made to look at least 5'8". A good reference is Replicant where he edges 5'9" Van Damme so I think he probably was 176 cm at one point and is now a weaker 5'9" having lost half an inch in his early 60's. He looked completely average height on screen in his prime, imo.

Rob look him in movie “days of thunder” there’s a clear standup shot b/w Nicole Kidman and Rooker it’s evident to say that Rooker is in 177-178 cm range
Editor Rob
5ft 9.5 range peak isn't impossible.

Solid 5'10" Saw him recently and he was wearing flat footwear.

Would love for Rob to meet him. He is going to The Walker Stalker Con in London , though Rob doesn't have the money for it.
Editor Rob
He's 90 pounds (or 72 at another event), just too much money.

So he's boosting his height by one inch and his weight by one hundred pounds(or more!)?

Sorry, that one was bad. :D

Wouldn't rule out 5'9.5". His stocky frame makes him looks shorter.

Jjak said on 7/Jan/18
To be honest he is 90 percent average joe for his gen.
5 9 170 peak not big but was fit to his 30s.
Maybe 510 in big shoes orboots
The Shredder said on 23/Nov/17
I think he is a guy I underestimated , He can look minimum 5'9 a lot. Whatever he is , I'd rule out 5'10.
Rising - 174 cm said on 18/Nov/17
@Rampage: He wasn't taller than Sly in Cliffhanger -- I believe the opposite -- but we know Sly may have been 5'9" max, but rarely looked as short as 5'9" in films. He was probably at least as tall as Sly in bare feet, but the fact that Sly this year can still look noticeably taller than Rooker tells me Rooker has very likely dipped below 5'9" in his 60's. Still 5'8.5" minimum, though, and it's possibly he's still near enough 5'9" considering he does wear shoes that put him at a disadvantage sometimes and he doesn't have Stallone posture.
The Shredder said on 17/Nov/17
From a few away he looked about same height as a solid 5'7 guy I measured , but when I got closer I thought he was taller but still less than Reedus , but his shoes were 0.5 and he had a cap on ... Hard to say honestly , but He's not 5'10 or 5'8 flat.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/17
Strong 5ft9 peak is possible but was he taller than Sly in Cliffhanger?
The shredder said on 12/Nov/17
He might be taller than i though , He looked 5'9.5 range in a photo with a girl I know
Rising - 174 cm said on 13/Oct/17
Rooker is in better shape than the average man his age, but he does have loose posture nowadays and he has played a number of physical roles so it's possible he's sustained some decent injuries. That could mean either that he looks shorter than he is due to posture or that he's lost height due to the toll on his body and particularly his spine.

With Sly Stallone no more than 5'8.5" these days, I can believe Rooker is down to that as well looking at this candid shot: Click Here This is assuming Sly wore the likely 2.5" range footwear he wore to the Guardians premiere.

He looked no more than that with CM Punk quite a few years back as well as in Ali Baba's pic and Shredder didn't think he was above it. But this could be loose posture and 0.7" range footwear so I'd think 5'8.75" current and 5'9.25" peak is also quite possible.
Puma said on 6/Oct/17
Rob, Rooker is 62.How much cm did he lost?Is 177 possible his peak height?
Imo, peak 177, now 175.
Editor Rob: half inch is possible...he's a fitter 62 year old than most guys though.

Sometimes you can hit 60 without 1mm being lost...but that is rare, usually it is a fraction, but many men won't realise they lost a fraction in their 50's unless they were being measured.
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Aug/17
5'8.75" now is definitely possible as is 176 cm peak. But while this is only a year after the pics Rob posted of Rooker and Yeun, even with the hat and camera advantage, I see Rooker looking 174 max if CM Punk is 182 cm: Click Here Rooker does look to have thinner shoes to me, though. I see 5'8.5" here as well without considering shoes, which favor Punk and posture, which favors Rooker: Click Here This is based on the assumption their caps cancel each other out in the latter pic.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Aug/17
@Rob: That's from 2011, though. So a half dozen years ago already as hard as it is to believe. Rooker was only 56 then. I think you've mentioned that late 50s/early 60s range can be when height loss becomes an issue for a lot. I did just watch a Criminal Minds episode with him from about 2009ish and he gave a fairly tall impression - certainly not under 5'9" - but he doesn't always look to hold himself as well to me these days. There are some shorter appearances out there with Reedus, such as this video: Click Here I think it's pretty safe to say Rooker is clearly taller than Yeun and shorter than Reedus. I'm hoping on the off chance NY Comic Con gets Sly or Kurt for their Guardians lineup. If that happens, I'll almost surely attend and outside of someone like that, Rooker, who is confirmed, would be at the top of my list.
Shredder said on 8/Aug/17
It is possible I underestimated him? He didn't look 5'10 , but with his 0.5 footwear he was shorter than Reedus. Could he be 5'9.25?
Editor Rob: 5ft 9 I think is still ok, but there is always a chance he has went from a bit over to a bit under by age 60.
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Aug/17
If you had just 1/4" more shoes and he looked closer to 5'8" than 5'9" then it convinces me even more that 5'8.5" is his current height. That's about what he looks to me anyway and Ali Baba also looked about a head taller than Rooker to me. I agree with 5'9", but as a peak height. He's 62, so a half inch loss is not unusual. I think Rob's listing for Van Damme is about right, but there have always been times he could look a weaker 5'9" or even 5'8.5". I don't remember Rooker significantly taller, though, just a bit. I'd like to see a good comparison of Michael and Kurt Russell nowadays. I believe Kurt would be taller, even without cowboy boots. I think Rooker and Stallone would be about the same height barefoot both at their peaks and today as well.
Editor Rob: a few years ago he seemed taller than Yeun to be only 8.5 range.
Shredder said on 7/Aug/17
I met him and he had a baseball cap and thin shoes , like 0.5 , the shoes I had were about 0.75 . I don't know if i'd give him a flat 5'8 but he looked nowhere near 5'10 , maybe at best close to 5'9. I wouldn't have even gave him 5'9.5.

My bet is on like 5'8.75 or so.
Giorgi said on 5/Aug/17
He is taller. He was significantly taller than Van Damme who was wearing thick sneakers.
The shredder said on 11/Jul/17
Rising , he did have low shoes and a cap when I met him , but I thought he looked closer to 5'8 than 5'9. Maybe 5'8.5 now is his height I'd say?
RisingForce said on 21/Jun/17
Well, if he's still 5'9" then Sly is still pulling off at least 5'10.5", even 5'11" with him. I think he's a perfect candidate for 5'9" peak and 5'8.5" current, much like co-stars Stallone and Van Damme as well as Eric Roberts. I could get a photo with Rooker later this year, but there's only a small list of names that would get me to a convention.
Shredder said on 28/May/17
February 2014 I met him. He looked below 5'9 but had shoes that were only about 0.5 . He could still be 5'9 now but that is the max. If he was 5'10 he still would have seemed 5'9.5 minimum. He looked not even a full 5'9.
RisingForce said on 27/May/17
That was a few years ago, right, Shredder? I think these days a 5'9" peak and 5'8.5" current listing would be good. Just like Stallone and Van Damme. MrTBlack, that's why nobody should pay attention to internet listings. Rooker himself only claimed 5'10" and he was obviously never that tall, but he is in the normal height range for an actor, particularly in tough guy roles to claim 5'10".
Shredder said on 14/May/17
When I met him he looked nowhere near 5'10 and closer to 5'8 , but he did only have about 0.5 shoes on. I give him about 5'8.75
MrTBlack said on 12/May/17
I remember a 6'1.5" listing for him in the mid 00s. Lol, I always knew he was slightly above average height at best.
RisingForce said on 10/May/17
Sly was looking at least a couple of inches taller in a pic he posted from a Guardians of the Galaxy photoshoot Sly posted to his instagram so Sly probably had lifts, but that could suggest more 5'8.5" may be right for Rooker today. He could seem even a bit shorter than that with 182 cm CM Punk, but wasn't he a bit taller than Van Damme in Replicant back in 2001? I'd be surprised if he wasn't around 5'9" peak.
Editor Rob: the chance of half inch or 1 inch loss shouldn't be written off for Michael.
Shredder said on 20/Jan/17
When I saw him from about 20 feet he looked 5'8 , than I met him and took a pic ( that I lost ) and he looked 5'8.5 ish but had 0.5 sneakers on. He might be close to 5'9 barefoot or a little under , 5'9.5 peak most likely. ,
Shredder said on 17/Dec/16
He was well under 5'10 for sure. He would have looked at least 5'9.5 to me , he looked below 5'9 in 1/2 inch shoes.
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Dec/16
@ Shredder - If you liked the first, you will like the follow up! A different actor plays Henry, and yes, that really put me off at first, but it is every bit as good, as Henry continues to cast his influence on the feeble-minded and taking advantage of those who look after him.
It is SO worth getting hold of a copy. You'll want to see it more than once, I guarantee!
Shredder said on 13/Dec/16
Glad somebody enjoys Henry , Portrait of a Serial Killer. I met him before btw and from about 20 feet he looked max a 5'8 guy. When I got closer I was thinking maybe at best 5'8.5 to 5'9 , but he did have 1/2 footwear which was less than most and mine , He could be 5'9 but 5'8.5 is safe and yeah at peak 5'9.5 is possible.
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Dec/16
I'm really pleased to find you have a page on Michael Rooker, Rob!
I got into his films a bit by mistake! A very interesting friend of mine recommended that I see this film, so I did! It was 'Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer' and his performance is spine chillingly good! Sean (my friend) was right, as usual...
I now have 7 Michael Rooker films, but this is the best! He is the main character and handles it brilliantly! He might only be of average height, but he is so scary in other ways, including manipulation, that he makes up for the lack-of-height bit fourfold!
He has bit-parts in 'Super', 'The Bone Collector', 'The Freeway Killer' (excellent film!) and played the lead figure in a horror called 'Skeleton Man' and who can forget that he was in 'The Walking Dead'?
All the sort of things that make my heart beat faster!
I reckon he is now 5ft8.5, having been 5ft9.5 at his peak.
Shredder said on 15/Jun/16
In person I thought he was in the 5 ft 8 range , but he did have only about 1/2 footwear and a hat on which might have given me the illusion he was shorter than he really was because I've seen him in pics with people I know and celebs that Rob has and he does look more 5 ft 9. One thing for sure , he is no 5 '10 guy , he would have looked 5'9.5 ish.

5'8.75 is my guess.
Dmeyer said on 15/May/16
0,5in at 60 is normal maybe 5 ft 9 peak 5 ft 8,5 now
Dmeyer said on 1/May/16
1-1,5cm loss at 60 is possible

I stood next to him and im 5 10 hes about there close to my height
Average Joe said on 2/Apr/16
Rooker is a guy who would intimidate you with his sheer muscle mass rather than his height. We also must consider that he is in his 60's and thus height lose is almost certain. Having seeing him next to 6'3" Tom Towles and 5'2" Tracy Arnold in Henry, I'd say he was 5'8.5" and 195lbs at his biggest.
Blade said on 3/Jan/16
He's 5'8. No more!
Andrea said on 17/Dec/15
If you think he lost some height, why don't you give him a peak height? Ali met him 3 years ago and he already looked 5'8 at most...
Editor Rob: I may still
Andrea said on 16/Dec/15
Rob, why is he still listed at 5'9? Shred said he looked 5'8 and, if you look at him with Ali, he doesn't look over 5'8 too! Actually there is more difference there than in your photo with Big Anthony!!! And Michael is supposed to be an inch taller than you...
He was in an episode of Chuck and Zachary could look 5-5.5 inches taller than him! But again Zachary was in converse, so he certainly had more footwear. Is he a guy who would wear lifts? I don't know but he can look 5'9-5'10 on the screen. Under the stadio i doubt he'd be that tall, though!!!
Editor Rob: losing some height is very possible for rooker.
the shredder said on 14/Dec/15
Honest looked like a 5 '8 guy to me. Low shoes thought , but still no where near his 5'10.
Sam said on 16/Sep/15
Actually think he struggled with even the 5'9" mark in Super next to Kevin Bacon. Bacon looks 1.5 inches taller. However, Bacon can look taller than his 5'10" listing at times (i.e. close in height to Michael Fassbender in X-Men) Bacon may not be adverse to wearing larger than average footwear while acting.
At any rate few actors had me fooled into thinking that they were rather taller than they actually are than Rooker.
the shredder said on 7/Jun/15
Met them both , Reedus close to 5 '10 ,but a lttle below , Rooker legit 5 '8 .
Key said on 5/Jun/15
When you google pictures of him standing next to what I believe is a 5'9.5 Norman Reedus (Daryl), at times he looks 5'8 flat, and at other times he looks 5'9.25

Standing next to my wife he looked about 5'8" in tennis shoes.

Eclipse says on 29/Nov/14
In lifts, he edges out Norman Reedus. He's likely a weak 5'9.

Those must be huge lifts. I have met both several times and gotten pics with them. On one occasionion Rooker literally stood on his tip toes and was just as tall as Reedus when doing so. In the other pic he's noticeably shorter than Reedus even when Rooker stretched to his tallest and Reedus was relaxed.
Adamz said on 31/Dec/14
Always looks taller than this. Like this guy is the same as Steve Carell? Seriously?

Ali Baba said on 28/Sep/14
He looked 6 inches shorter than Samuel L. Jackson in Jumper.

I still believe he's 5'8". I'm surprised you don't have a pic with him yet, Rob. He likes conventions and is very friendly.
[Editor Rob: he was at a con last year but I missed him, he was a 'paying attendee' though...I heard the organiser wouldn't pay the fee, even though he was in London at the time so no flight costs. Would be surprised if I ever saw him now...]
the shredder said on 17/Aug/14
Rob , I remember his footwear now , He had Adidas that add 1 inch now. He really did not have more footwear over me , he did not look 5'9 , more 5'8 or 5'8.5.
the shredder said on 12/Aug/14
He for sure was not looking 5'10 , maybe 5'9 with a 5'8 illusion

5'8 with his arm around me me at Comic con , 1/2 shoes , he is 5'8.5 max.
Lone said on 6/May/14
What was he listed at before? 177cm? And what's the highest you think he could have been peak? I can believe he's dropped a cm or so in late 50's, he actually looked close to 5ft10 in the 90's, although I don't think he was ever that tall though, I suspect he was a lift wearer, and now a half-inch of height loss, and he can look 174-175 without them.
Hoops said on 5/May/14
I walked past him at Minneapolis Comic Con. I heard that great, distinctive voice, and I looked up to see where it was coming from. Then I heard it again, and I had to look down to see him.

I was walking by him in the opposite direction, so I only saw him for a moment, but if I was to guess, I would say between 5'4" - 5'6" tops. I am only 5'11", and I had to look down to see him. No way he is 5'9".

Still, he was an intimidating presence!
the shredder said on 4/Apr/14
Perfect Posture with me Rob , He was under 5'9. More just a good 5'8 with me and friends. I can't see him more than 5'8.75 or so , He was not a legit 5'9 , as crazy as this sounds Yeun was taller in Person. I'll get yeun this time next year without the box :).
the shredder said on 4/Apr/14
rob , can he be 5'8.5? He looked under 5'9 , more 5'8 but had low shoes about .5 .
[Editor Rob: he can look that, whether it is just a bit looser posture nowadays or not is a question.]
the shredder said on 20/Mar/14
True , Rob really needs to downgrade him , he was 5'8 max with me with slightly less footwear , he can be 5'8.5 but that is it.
Sam said on 19/Mar/14
He's a classic example of a guy the camera makes seem taller than he is. Note that he is no taller than Jean-Claude Van Damme.

He was under 5'9 for sure. No way a legit 5'9. Looked 5'8 but had thin shoes could be 5'8.5

Can look 1cm taller Than van Damme So aleast 5'9.5 peak also arnie looks at best 2.5in taller at premiere pics of the 6th day
[Editor Rob: shrinkage could be a real chance with him.]
the shredder said on 15/Feb/14
He is not a full 5'9 . He looked 5'8 max in 1/2 shoes.
Ed said on 12/Feb/14
If you look at most pictures with him and Norman Reedus. He looks a good 2 or 3 inches shorter. I'd give this guy 5'8" tops. But like Rob said, since he's near 60 it's possible he's an inch under his peak height. 5'8" wouldn't surprise me for his peak though; he didn't look very tall in Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer.
[Editor Rob: wear and tear at 60 could knock some off...he seems a guy whose not exactly sipping tea and playing croquet, seems more a rough and tumble type of guy.]
the shredder said on 9/Feb/14
I went to Comic Con earlier and met him and a few others ... He looked 5'8 , 5'8.5 to me but had thinner shoes , he can be 5'9 max.

Others I saw was Michael beihn who was 6 '0 easily

Linda Hamilton , appeared under 5'5

C.thomas Howell had boots on and looked under 5'11

Norman Reedus looked 5'10

I have pics with some too.
[Editor Rob: the funny thing is Biehn when I saw him had bigger footwear than joe calzaghe yet they looked similar height!]
Ali Baba said on 4/Feb/14
Berta, I'm a flat 6'6" at the end of the day and only .75" taller in the morning. I'm closer to a weak 6'6" than a strong one in my opinion.
Zach said on 20/Jan/14
In season 1 on the roof he looked huge when he single handedly beat everyone up, like, a 6'3 guy. Season 3 looked lot shorter.
berta said on 16/Jan/14
Ali baba what is yout height when you wake up and when you go to bed?. Yot look like a very strong 6'6. Like 200.3 when you wake up and 198.8 in the evening
Ed said on 7/Dec/13
Definitely looks in the 5'8" range here with Christian Slater(5'8") and Willem Dafoe(5'7"). I'm assuming Willem has footwear advantage. Click Here
Rimbaud said on 28/Nov/13
i am really shocked at that one! i thought he was a 5ft 11" guy for sure!
Ali Baba said on 25/Nov/13
I my him again Saturday. Still a nice guy and jokingly stood on his toes for our picture. When standing on his toes he ended up at about Norman Reedus's height. It was a large group photo with a total of 5 members (or ex-members for 3 of them) of the Walking Dead cast. I still think he's closer to 5'8" than 5'9".
the shredder said on 16/Nov/13
Rob , next to Mamun he looks 5'8. I think 5'8.5 might be better for him.
[Editor Rob: he could look nearer 5ft 8 with big Ali Baba aswell. Nearing 60 is quite possible he's lost a bit of height]
Idra said on 16/Sep/13
I'd be surprised if he's even 5'8. look at this guy in Super next to 5'10 Kevin Bacon. He's absolutely dwarfed

First scene where they're confronted by Rainn Wilson, Rooker manages to look Kevin Bacon look tall by comparison
Ali Baba said on 3/Jun/13
It depended on what scene you watched. Sometimes he looked taller than "Daryl" and at other times he looked shorter. It was all camera angle. In reality "Daryl" is a few inches taller.
iowa said on 13/Apr/13
On the Walking Dead he seemed to have a very imposing height he appeared at least 6' 0" maybe 6' 1" and he wore flat shoes the whole time, he was definitely taller than 5' 10'' Rick and Daryl but shorter than the 6' 3'' Governor.
Ali Baba said on 27/Mar/13
The lifts thing is only a suspicion since I didn't see him actually put them in. But he was definitely messing with his shoes when he went back to his autograph area and did seem shorter when he was there than when we were in the photo area. So it's just a theory at this point. I don't estimate him being any taller than 5'8" at the most. Even on The Walking Dead he seems pretty small. They do very well at making him into a bad ass though.
Byron T. said on 23/Mar/13
Doesn't look 5'10'' compared to CM Punk. 5'9'' would be the maximum for him, unless he really wears shoe lifts as others have already stated.
jimmy said on 18/Mar/13
He looks 5'8" with Ali Baba.So if he was in lifts as Ali Baba claims what's his actual height? 5'6"?
Ace said on 22/Jan/13
Rooker's motion capture stats were given as 5'10 for the making of Black Ops 2. Rob do you have any idea how accurate those would actually be?
[Editor Rob: if he was in footwear it could be accurate]
Ali Baba said on 9/Jan/13
Rooker is wearing a very flat soled shoe in those pictures with Punk and look to be the same shoes he was wearing in Austin.
Ali Baba said on 9/Jan/13
I still suspect Rooker was wearing lifts when he was taking the pictures with fans, because he seriously did look a little shorter when I talked to him at his booth than he did when we took pictures.

I thought that a legit 6'6 guy evening would have been even over 6'7 out of bed (its very common an inch plus shrinkage from morning to evening for very tall guys like you). What pther celebrities you met?
Lo Sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/12
I got it, but it can still helps you in changing heights! That's what i mean! I rewatch the last episode of TWD and Morissey looks 6'2 at best next to Rooker, unless he wears big lifts to appear taller. Maybe you should downgrade Morissey...

Ali you look a giant! How tall are you exactly (at your lowest). Rob, i thought you didnt use other guys photos (remember Mamun?). Dont misunderstand me, im "in favour of this" but i thought you werent! Anyway, its incredible how 5'9 guys can look pretty tall on screen! I'm starting to understand why they say hollywood is a short world! Rob, he looked max 5 inches shorter than David Morissey in TWD, but more like 4 inches!

[Editor Rob: it's a good shot, he certainly doesn't look near his own claim of 5ft 10, you could definitely argue he looks 5ft 8, I'll put him 5ft 9, maybe he's lost some height.]

Height loss is very possible. He's 57 years old now.

Here's the picture I took with him. Click Here

He's a super nice guy and was very lively. Easily the nicest celebrity I've ever talked to. After the photo shoot my daughter and I saw him messing with his shoes, and even she thought he was removing lifts. He did seem shorter when he was at his autograph signing area than he did in he photo area, but it may have been an illusion.

After getting a pic with Rooker he's actually about 5'8". I'll post the picture later.

Saw him at the Austin Comic Con today. He's about 5'6". I have a photo op scheduled for later so we'll see if he's standing or sitting like CM Punk was.

I was watching him in Slither, and he is certainly correct about his frame. He is extremely powerfully built. I would have thought he was closer to 5'11 myself. My guess is he is rounding down slightly. He could be like 179.

He looks 5'11" in movies but if he says 5'10 then I think he must be strong 5'10" (178 cm)

Was standing next to him at Shot Show. At best 5'9" in lifts. Much much smaller in person.

Was standing next to him at Shot Show 2012(Biggest Gun Show)in Vegas,he is at best 5'9" in lifts. Also is a lot less interesting in person and smaller physically than he appears on screen.
I only figured out who he was when I was going over attendee and exhibitor pictures he was tagged in on facebook.

He looked pretty tall in The Lady Vanishes. I thought he was 6'4 or so.

I'd def. say Michael Rooker was around 5'10", maybe 5'9" but 5'10" sounds on the dime!
Mike said on 29/Oct/07
Are there any good shots of him standing next to Tom Cruise in Days of Thunder ?
dmeyer said on 30/Jul/07
5'9.5 seems good
dmeyer said on 30/Jul/07
rooker seemed 0.5 in taller than vandamme i think 5'10 is too tall for rooker more like 176 177 cm
Everardo said on 30/Jul/07
In Replicant, Rooker looks a bit shorter than Van Damme, who is listed here as being 175 cms tall.
