I was on a plane with him once, Im 6-4 and he was way taller than I am, Id say at least 6-6"

Wonderful back in many years ago how people could lied about a legit 6'3 being 6'6. He could be as low as 6'2 1/2 in Supernatural. At most 6'3 1/4 peak.

Looked 6’4 in Mash, I could see a little more difference between him and Alda, rather than Rogers and Alda, which definitely only looked about an inch.

6ft3½ peak is possible, at least 1in taller than Alda. Probably around 6ft2 now though

On MASH, he was easily an inch taller than Alan Alda, who I saw in person as a true 6'2" years later.

Hugh, where did you saw that??
Ed Begley Jr. is a huge man, I'd say he's a really corpulent 6'4 man, if Farrell is any taller he should be at least 6'4.5, which would prove David Ogden Stiers is around 6'4 himself, as he usually claims, and not the 6'3 listed here.

I saw Mike in person doing some publicity for "Mash" in a TV studio in the late 1970's. He was definitely 6'3", which is the height he has kept throughout his career. I have seen several taller actors in scenes with him over the years, such as 6'5" Fred Gwynne and 6'6" James Cromwell, and Mike always looks his standard 6'3".

He was 6'4 in MASH, thats for sure. But now he might have shrunk to 6'3.

Very tall, Alan Alda who is over 6'2 was always about 1 1/2 inch shorter than Farrel, and farrell would always be wearing those Chuck Taylor tennis shoes which give you no additional height at all,it was an army camp so everyone else had heeled boots or shoes on. And in one episode Hawkeye calls him 6'4, which he must have been at least. I think they put him in those Chuck Taylor's so he would'nt loom over Alda any more than he had to.

6'3" sounds right to me, alot of the MASH cast were tall, Mclean Stevenson, David Stiers, Alan Alda, all atleast 6'2".

Mr. Farrell attended a benefit at an Animal Planet fundraiser for zoos damaged by Katrina (about mid November, 2005). I was there as a guest speaker & I got to meet him briefly (shooks hands). I'm 6'5" and he looked 1.5 or 2.0 inches less than me. So, I'd give him 6'3-3.5".

On MASH he look at least an inch possibly 2 inches taller than Alan Alda, who is a big 6'2'' I think. For some reason most of the MASH actors seemed to be big 6'2'' to 6'4'' and this 30 or so years ago.

I met Mike Farrell at a political rally ten years ago. Nice guy! I am over 6'2" and he was significantly taller than me. If you'd asked me to estimate at the time, I'd have said he was at least 6'3.5". There's no way he was less than 6'3" tall, unless he was wearing shoes will a big heel.

I doubt that Mike gave the interview his height or that other stuff. It always looked as though he and David Stiers were the same height.

I see him from time to time around town, and have spoken to him several times. This may be a little high now. I would say 6'2". (By the way, he is married to Shelly Fabares from Coach and the song Johnny Angel. See what you can find on her Rob.)
