Noah Wyle's Height
6ft 0.75in (184.8 cm)
American actor best known for his portrayal of Dr John Carter on tv series E.R. and Tom Mason on sci-fi series Falling Skies. In a TNT interview he claims: "I've never had much luck getting action-adventure roles, maybe because I'm 6-foot-2 and only about -- what? -- 100 pounds"

I remember Mr R from way back in the day on celebheights. He used to comment a lot back then and I think he said he was 5'11 or 5'11.5 ( can't remember) but I do remember something else because I found it troubling.
In a discussion about a celeb's height (Elvis Presley I think it was) Mr R said he considered a person's height the height they were just standing naturally, not trying to stand as tall as possible. This is a problem because we are then not all operating from the same perspective.
If I personally am standing totally relaxed in bare feet I am just scraping 5'8. but if I stand as tall as I can with the best posture possible I am scraping 5'9 instead, ergo, I think of myself as 5'9. If I then meet a celeb who seems indistinguishable from me in height ( I did, Shannon Elizabeth ), I think they are also 5'9. If Mr R is 5'11 to 5'11.5 when relaxed, then he is probably over 6' when he tries ( at least at his peak height years). So if he meets a celeb who is seemingly the same height he is? He thinks they're 5'11 or whatever when they are 6' or more when they stand straight up and tall.
This btw explains a lot when juxtaposing his opinions with someone like Dmeyer who also meets celebs.

Guest in Friends with George Clooney, clearly taller than him, this listing seems fair. In Donnie Darko, he's clearly taller too than Jake Gyllenhaal.

I still can't agree with Mr R on Noah Wyle. If he is only 5'11 then all his co star of E.R would need massive downgrade and Anthony Edwards would be like 6'0.5 , i think Wyle was at least 6'0.75 with a certain 3cm footwear or he is about 182cm

Are you sure? I thought he was at least a weak 182cm guy like 5'11.5?
Colberto said on 9/Mar/17
I think 184.5-185 is the best range for him. 6'0 3/4". I think he might measure like 6'0 5/8".
Mr. R said on 9/Dec/16
I saw Noah twice in Hollywood and he was 5-11 at the tallest part of the day. We chatted for a minute so I sized him up pretty well.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/16
I thought he was 6ft max at one point but looking at old ER episodes he looks about 2in on Clooney (who may have been 5ft11) and in some scenes barely shorter than 6ft2ers Eriq LaSalle and Anthony Edwards. When he stands tall he does look close to 6ft1. May brush that mark if measured. Not nder this listing anyway.
said on 24/Sep/16
Rob, which of these would you argue for Noah?
Editor Rob: based on the falling skies guests I've met, I'd say it is less likely A and more towards B-C range...but then a guy like Dmeyer met him and thought he was at least an inch taller, so I would be surprised if under C by much..
Dmeyer said on 24/Sep/16
Defentlty near 185cm as i thaught hé was over 1in taller than me like 1-1,5in
S.J.H said on 24/Sep/16
He look legit 182cm above
Dmeyer said on 6/Jan/16
rethinking of it and knowing my height of about 181.5cm 6ft 0.5-0.75in make sens close to 6'1 like about 3cm taller than myself but aleast 1in taller so aleast 6'0.5in a hair shorter than a guy like eric dane costner or isiah washington who are stronger 185cm
Sarah said on 4/Jun/15
Pretty close to 6'1". Looks relatively tall on Falling Skies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/15
Right between Anthony Edwards and Clooney.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/14
Actually 184-185cm is closer after seeing more photos of him with Clooney.

Rob Photo is not showing up...
[Editor Rob: yeah I'd forgotten to upload that thanks.]
alex said on 30/Oct/14
He is slightly shorter t'han 6'2 Edwards and la dalle,i think 184 cm is accurate.
said on 26/Nov/13
Strong 6' seems about right.
said on 7/Oct/13
Barely taller than 6' Steve Jobs. Click Here
Dmeyer said on 21/Mar/13
I met the Guy he is over 6 ft but not over 6 ft 1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/12
Rob, maybe 6ft on the dot?
Either that or Anthony Edwards is closer to 6ft3
said on 10/Oct/11
These estimates of 5-10 are ridiculous; in this link he's on stage at MacWorld in 1999: Click Here
Build-wise, he's almost identical to Jobs with a tall skinny frame, and looked to me *at most* an inch below Jobs 6-2 height with both wearing sneakers.
Alex said on 20/Aug/11
basing on e.r. 184-185 sounds right
Dmeyer said on 28/Jun/11
Aleast 184cm in person
Dmeyer said on 28/Jun/11
I met thé Guy hé had low cut shoes anything under 6 ft 0.25 is a joke mr r is wears he see 184 cm pine at 6'2 and near 6 '1 noah at 5 ft 10 183.5 184.5 fits him near 185
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Feb/11
Looked barely taller than George Clooney in some episodes of ER
Mr. R said on 29/Nov/10
Noah is really between 5-10 and 5-11 as I said when I saw him. The pic above with 174 guy proves my point.
RampageClover said on 28/Nov/10
I'm thinking 184cm max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/10
183cm at best.
dmeyer said on 29/Aug/07
184 strong like 6'0.5
dmeyer said on 1/May/07
i thaught i was 5'11.75 like strong 182 when i met him so he seemed an easy 6'1 or 6'1.25 but we are talking morning height he seemed 1 to 1.5 in taller than me so 6'0.5 make sens
dmeyer said on 31/Dec/06
i remember he was 3 inches shorter than visjnic but noah had 1.2 casual shoes and and goran had 0.5 puma mostro so 184 s
dmeyer said on 13/Nov/06
at 5'11 he was taller han me so 184 cm seems right also phifer was shorter than me so 177
dmeyer said on 30/Oct/06
i am 180-2 range and he apeared taller than me on er he lookedd 184 cm 6'0.5 no less he looked in the 184-5 zone but sometime had floor advantage so 184 cm if he didnt wear lifts i will say 184 cm fits him i thaught he looked 185 cm but i thaught i was 182 cm since morning height dont count so i am more 180-1 range so he is more 184 cm and hanks he more 183 than 184 on night mesurment since i use to judge celebs by morning height so all the celebs i met are 0.5 inches smaller than i thaught like travolta apear 185 comparwe to my 182 not my 180 same thing for hanks .......
Anonymous said on 7/Sep/06
Adding my 2cents to this really interesting/amusing debate. I met Noah Wyle several times, close, and have a couple of pics with him (which i'm not willing at all to share here ;)...). I'm 170cm and the top of my head on those pics is always reaching just his nose... Now we just need to ask Noah for the height difference between the tip of his nose and the top of his head and we are fixed!
dmeyer said on 4/Aug/06
i am about 182 and noah was aleast 1 inch bigger a strong 184 maybe 185
Editor Rob said on 22/Jul/06
A pic of a fella who says he's 174cm and met him in south africa.

yeah rob this is dmeyer i worked as a medical student on er
[Editor Rob: and the travolta comment strong 184cm aswell? next time you add a comment, if you enter dmeyer in the box where it says 'anonymous' it should remember your name, I think :)]
dmeyer said on 24/Nov/05
i met him he looks 185 cm to me but 184 cm is possible
[Editor Rob: this is dmeyer?]

CelebHeights Editor said on 15/Sep/05
J., he said his height again...he's now being consistant ;) In TNT he said: "I've never had much luck getting action-adventure roles, maybe because I'm 6-foot-2 and only about -- what? -- 100 pounds"
J. said on 23/Mar/05
Mr. R, I'm all for a celebheights convention in Hollywood! :-) I'll try to dig up my measuring tape! But yeah, Noah "I'm suddenly 6'2" but I look I'm under 6 feet" Wyle is full of hot air. He does seem like a nice guy and all but on his part but there's seem to be some fibbing going on. Also, is it me or doesn't he seem slighty older than 33-going on-34? I could have sworn that it was documented some time back that he was born earlier than the 1971 that most sources have him at. Lying about how tall you are and your age, you're not looking too good right now, Mr. Wyle (joking) :-)
Smoke said on 22/Mar/05
Yeah maybe the character John Carter is actually 6'2", brown and brown, Gemini, with a 32-34 inch waist and NOAH WYLE wears lifts to better fit into the role. The thing is on E.R, every time I see him he's in runners and looking fairly tall. At first he looked 6'1" on the dot at most to me, now he's saying he's 6'2"? Maybe the next time Mr. R runs into the guy...grab some measuring tape and get this guy measured!!! :)
Mr. R said on 22/Mar/05
I think this is great! Everyone's experience is different. I believe DMeyer's account that Noah was six-one, ON THAT DAY! On the day that I saw him he was between five-ten and eleven. Our wonderful celebheights editor Rob has shown us that many celebs have height variances depending on the day, and I think that Noah is one of those people. A great guy - just a little more vertically challenged than we thought. Smoke, thanks for the affirmation. Yes, my friend the celebheights editor has been skeptical with several of my observations. I have actually invited him to visit America on his next vacation, and we will measure as many folks as we can find. I look forward to vindication. Also, Smoke, which celebrities have you and I met in common that you disagree with my observations? I would like to invite you, J, Rob, L, and others to Hollywood for a celebheights convention. We would measure each other, and then find celebs and compare our views. Think about it.
J. said on 22/Mar/05
An intresting story: http://fan-forums.org/archive/index.php/t-235.html
Here's Noah's take on his own height (excerpted from the article): "Six-foot-2. Brown and brown. Gemini," he recites. "Somewhere between 32- and 34-inch waist."
[Editor Rob: Maybe he has been doing lots of stretching/biking, taking glucosamene sulphate and hanging from a bar every night for an hour...and we could all be wrong and he's now 6ft 2! Actually there was an article a while back which mentioned how a certain 5ft 7 star had bought some gravity boots and would hang every night in an attempt to gain some height...]
Smoke said on 22/Mar/05
Mr. R, I hope you know I'm not disagreeing with your accounts out of spite or anything. Just like you agree with some of my accounts, I think many of yours are valid also...there is nothing wrong disagreeing on a tricky guy like a Noah Wyle! Some guys are tough to pinpoint unless several people have met them, like an Allen Iverson. I hope everyone knows that just because I disagree from time to time doesn't mean I'm doing it to be testy or because I don't enjoy people's posts. In regards to the E.R. folks I have no account, they don't film the show here, so hopefully some more people have been on the E.R set or met some of the actors!
[Editor Rob: judging heights in person is still better, but yes some people will judge differently and I still would disagree with some personal accounts, although I leave all comments displayed so people can decide. I do value everybody's opinion (except those who keep emailing me to tell me britney is 5ft 8 ;) ). I know from experience people in general have a hard time guaging heights. The further you are standing from a person the harder it becomes to judge a height. Similarly, depending on your own height, I think the taller you are the harder it becomes (or should I say, the more likely it could be to under-estimate) to differentiate between, say a 5ft 6er and 5ft 8er. Other things like meeting a star on a street (you have to consider road camber) or their posture/stance can also make celebrities appear smaller than their measured height, especially if you are standing shot straight.]
Smoke said on 22/Mar/05
Okay J. buddy, again you're talking like I've never met any of these stars in person. Just like you, I've met my share of celebs and know full well how they look in person in comparison to their on appearance on screen. My experience is that some celebs appear taller on screen than they are, but also some appear shorter than they actually are, and some are about the same height as you would think them to be. I also realize that you're aware that it's easy to make yourself appear taller. I'm guilty too, I'm 6'1" barefoot, I like my cowboy boots and in them I'm a good 6'3". I agree, Mr. R is right in regards to some of his accounts, but I think the Celebheights editor will agree that a lot of his accounts are quite skeptical as well. I've met some celebs that Mr. R has met and my account of their height is somewhat different from his. I respect Mr. R's and your opinion as much as anyone's, but that doesn't mean I have to agree all of the time just because "Mr R. knows what he speaks!". Even on Tyronn Lue, you said 5'7", but to me, only a couple of weeks ago he looked about 5'9". Again Mr. R has met Wyle and has a better account than I do, but to me this guy looks no less than 6'0" tall, I can't quite take up Mr. R on this one yet because his accounts of stars we have both met don't match mine. You are basically telling me I should take Mr. R's word over dmeyer's, I don't see why I should do that. One says 5'10" the other says 6'1", kind of a gap there.
J. said on 22/Mar/05
See,man, you have a good point but you're basing this on how he looks on screen. Hell, most of these guys are shrimps and they look 6 feet and better onscreen! I mean, Wyle just doesn't look and have the apperance of a 6 footer. Look at Google or Alta Vista and do a picture search. Dig enough and you'll see some more intimate, untouched, non-publicity shots of Noah and you'll see that Mr. R knows what he speaks! :-) [Also I must note that it's pretty easy for a 5'10"-5'11" guy to look taller. I know from past, pre-growth spurt experience ;-)]
Smoke said on 21/Mar/05
I have to say I agree that Wyle doesn't look 6'1" next to Edwards and LaSalle, I wish I could meet him to find out just how stinkin' tall the guy really is! Mr. R has met the guy and I agree that his opinion is most worthy in regards to Wyle. In the movie 'Enough' the guy looked about 6'1", on ER next to 6 footer Shane West he looks about 6'0"-6'1". But again, I've never met the guy and I have no say, for now last word goes to Mr. R until we can get someone else's encounter, may I also not that DMEYER HAS MET Noah and bills him as "a strong 6'1". Who do we believe here? If Shane West is 6'0", then Noah is certainly 6'0" as well, for now. I've also gotta say that Edwards looks considerably taller than 186 cms, then again in clogs he'll definately appear taller.
Mr. K said on 21/Mar/05
In one episode of ER one of the nurses asked Anthony about his height and he answers 6'1". I have also stood behind him when he was filming in England and he is definitely a strong 6'1". I am 186 cm which is about 6'1.25" and my wife said we where exactly the same height. In many ER-episodes Anthony wear clogs instead of sneakers, this makes him about an inch taller.
Anonymous said on 16/Mar/05
If you look at the Is Noah Wyle REALLY 6ft 1? pic, Edwards has to be atleast 6'2", even if LaSalle is 6'1" which I doubt he is, Edwards is atleast an inch taller. There is NO WAY Anthony Edwards is below 6'2", I think LaSalle looks a strong 6'2". Edwards stands beside Maura Tierney 5'3" and looks almost a foot taller. I think unless Michael Michelle is fudging her height (5'9") then Wyle has to be atleast 6'0". I agree with Palladino that Noah is indeed 6'1". In that brilliant (in the same way Gigli was) J-Lo movie 'Enough' he looked no more than 3 inches shorter than 6'4" Bill Campbell when they stood face to face.

J. said on 13/Mar/05
Noah Wyle is so NOT 6'1". Mr. R. is absolutely right, he's 5'10"-ish. Don't believe me? Take a look at some early publicity photos of "ER" and he is not around the same height as Anthony Edwards. Plus, in general, he does not look tall. He looks average height. You guys are obviously letting the lifts in his shoes fool you to believe he's 6-feet and up! ;-)
Mr. R said on 12/Mar/05
I stand by my statement that Noah is barely over 5'10"!
Mr. R said on 12/Mar/05
As I said, Noah passed me three times, and he was shorter than me on level ground. I am 5'11.5 in. To prove my point, I also told the celebheights editor that I had Eriq LaSalle, and he was about 6'1". I think this picture validates all of my observations!
Anonymous said on 12/Mar/05
He's definately atleast 6'0" because he's standing next to 5'9" Michael Michele in that shot and he looks atleast 3 inches taller than her. LaSalle is also slightly closer to the camera, so depending on exactly how tall LaSalle is (closer to 6'2" or 6'3") I would say that Wyle is 6'0"-6'1". There is also no way that Anthony Edwards is only 6'1" and change like many claim.
CelebHeights Editor said on 14/Feb/05
I'd agree that he does look on ER to be 6ft 1 when he really straightens up. I don't think he's under 6ft, it might be some slouching that makes him look like a 6 footer. Another medical student emailed me to say they were an extra on ER and Noah did look 184cm to them when standing beside him.
dmeyer said on 14/Feb/05
i worked on er a month ago and noah looked like a strong 6'1''
