Hartman wasn’t’ tall. May’ve looked it on NewsRadio, but that was a really short cast.

R.I.P. A true talent.

@Christian Perkins

That may be true, but the thing is that in McGrory's case, no matter what guess you submit, it will pull the average guess down.

I wonder if posters will start rigging the votes for Mcgrory's page (like voting 7'2") just to make the average closer to Rob's listing.

yes its only 14 votes, but this is the biggest gap between robs guess and the average guess i think i've ever seen. Wow, more than 1.5 inches! Theres gotta be some middle ground.

It’s not, because Matthew McGrory is listed 7’4 and has an average guess of (at the time I’m writing this) 7’6.12 or 7’6 1/8, since last year he was downgraded by two inches

Hartman was only 5-9.5?

Would have guessed closer to 6-0

Hard to believe it’s been over 20 years since he passed. He and John Candy as well as Chris Farley all died within a few years of each other. Of course preceded on the SNL tip by Belushi

This would be the lowest I’d argue. Maybe 5ft10½ is a shoe claim
Mayfield said on 21/Jun/19
I thought he was over 5'10. What made you decide to give him a listing below that?
Editor Rob
Not looked at Phil for a while but 5ft 9.5 would be the most I'd guess him from film
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/17
Rob, is 177cm or 179cm likelier?
bobo said on 20/Jun/17

"Phil Hartman height: 5ft 10.25in (178cm)"

Looked near 5ft11 in Newsradio, Jingle All The Way and that other deplorable Xmas movie with Sinbad. He was broad guy and might've looked shorter than he really was.

Very underrated actor. I still remember his horrific death like it was yesterday.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/13
Rob, could he have been 179cm?
Zach Hull said on 13/Mar/13
If he looked closer to 5'11", then he would look 6'.
Zach Hull said on 13/Mar/13
He always looked taller than Dave Foley on the show News Radio. I'm sure it's a funny show to watch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/12
Listed officially at 5"10.5(179cm). On SNL he did close to 5"11.
@jtm: yeah his wife was a psycho.
jtm said on 19/Feb/11
he looked closer to 5'9 to me.i miss watching him in snl and is very sad what his wife did to him.
TNTinCA said on 19/Feb/07
I have to agree with the other posters. Phil always struck me as a taller gentleman. Around 6 foot.

Shame he is gone. Friggen psycho wife of his.
sam said on 20/Sep/06
I'd say 5'11 or 5'10 for Phil. If he were still here, I bet he'd write on this site under disguise and make hilarious comments about himself. Great guy.
Glenn said on 30/Aug/06

Glenn said on 28/Aug/06

Editor Rob

There's a skit on SNL where Hartman is playing an attorney who, for some reason, is trying to gauge the jury's reactions to certain things about his client, but really about him. The whole point of the skit has to do with someone's "member" size and instead of really talking about the defendent, Hartman is hinting about the size of is "you know what" and if that is too small for a "5'10 and 1/2" man." Hard to explain - but he's talking about himself and that's how he describes himself in the skit.
Anthony said on 26/Aug/06
I'm with Glenn. I always thought Phil was quite tall as well.
Glenn said on 15/Aug/06
Interesting.I thought he was taller.Im wrong on this coming on this one day.
sf said on 14/Aug/06
He described himself as a 5'10 and 1/2 inch man on a skit of SNL....
Height Tracker said on 14/Aug/06
In Blind Date, Bruce Willis was about 2 inches taller than Hartman.
Anthony said on 11/Aug/06
This is accurate. He has about an inch on Lovitz in this pic:

I don't know why, but when I watched him on "SNL", he always gave off the impression of a bigger guy, at least from my perspective. Maybe it's because he had such a commanding presence when on the show. Plus I'm sure on the show when a noticably short cast member is impersonating someone who is noticably much taller than them they try and get them to appear closer to that person's height.

Such a shame what happened to Phil. He was my favorite "SNL" cast member.

He always looked 5'8 to me
