190.5 is correct I think
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Aug/22

he looks to have similar proportions to Lamonica Garrett, I think he's 6'2 5/8.

Rob, who would you give the height edge too: Mike Colter or J.August Richards?
Editor Rob
Both look solid 6ft 3 guys, I think it's hard to pick one who might have an edge.

Hey just wanna know....these guys who's height you list....they are with there shoes on right?
Editor Rob
Yes, I think Mike is a good example of a 6ft 3 guy barefoot

Mahershala more arguable to be a full 187cm guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jul/19
Actually if Mahershala is 6ft2 this guy could arguably be a little over 6ft3
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Jun/19
Rob, Lets say you meet Mike at a comic con and he bang on 190cm impression would you still listed him 6'3 or downgrade 0.25"? Since 6'2.75" is atually 189.9cm and i know its difficult to gauge out 0.9cm rather than 0.5-0.6cm so i was wondering many 6'2.75" listed guys maybe gave you the deep impression of fraction over 189cm so you just round up 6'2.75" or if i'm wrong is it you see them 190cm on the dot and just go with 1mm round down at 6'2.75" instate of round up 6'3.

Given I've met Finn, Krysten and Charlie, I cannot for the life of me see Mike less than a 6ft 3, as he never looked less than it with those actors.

I think he does a good job as Luke Cage. He looks tall enough to be 6'3.
Tall Sam said on 10/Jul/18
Missed that he was added, thanks!

Have you seen the second season of Luke Cage, Rob? A little better than the first IMO, but the guy as Bushmaster, Mustafa Shakir I suggested before, there's a change of a strong inch difference with Colter, I'm not sure he could anywhere in the 6'1.5"-6'2" zone.
Editor Rob
I've not finished the season yet.
hal said on 30/Jun/18
No doubt in my mind he's a legit 6'3". Love him in Luke Cage.
Editor Rob
He rarely seems less than 6ft 3, sometimes falls into strong 6ft 3 category.
Junior Hernandez said on 11/Feb/18
Colter and Chris Hemsworth both look more like legit 190cm guy.
Realist said on 19/Oct/17
This guy looks very BIG in Girls Trip next to a 5'7 in heels Regina Hall he towers her big 9 inches.
Adamz said on 20/Aug/17
You can add Luke Cage to the description.
Cranberry 6'4" said on 20/Aug/17
Slightly smaller frame than mine so I figured he must be in the 6'2"+ range. Not fully convinced he's a full 6'3" or a full 235 but it's possible.
Matt6'5" said on 28/Jul/17
A good listing. In "Luke cage" He does look tall and commanding in close-ups, but in public crowd scenes he looks tall but not towering (as comics luke cage is supposed to be 6'6")
Chris said on 2/Mar/17
Absolutely TOWERED me and pretty much everyone else at a Wizard con last year. Legit 6'3".

I've seen him and others who've interviewed him claim anything from 30 to 35 pounds as the amoutn of weight he'd gained for this role. How that relates to the amount he gained for his most recent previous role I imagine some of that is included in the current number. What's fairly consistent is that he claims a weight of 235 pounds most recently, which with his height seems totally believable.

I think he looks shorter than his actual height in solo pictures because he's not particularly lanky and is just thick all throughout.

He still doesn't look quite this tall in Luke Cage, but maybe they do it intentionally. He has a great frame though, lots of torso muscles to support his spine and a wide stance.
grizz said on 27/Jul/16
Looking forward seeing him in Luke Cage. Dude's huge. He sale he put on 30lbs for Jessica Jones show. How much does he weigh now -220-230 lbs?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/16
I guessed around 6ft but he does look 6ft3 on The Good Wife...
Josh said on 20/Jun/16
It's funny how he doesn't look tall on his own. In the picture above he could pass for a flat 6 footer. Of course once you see him next to other people you realise he's tall.

Hey Rob if Colter is 6'3 how tall would you say these guys next to him are:

Looks quite tall/large on Jessica Jones.

Good actor, has a malevolent looking face. Wasn't aware he was quite this tall.
