Remington/007 era Brosnan and Saint/007 era Moore would be about even peak
Canson said on 3/Nov/20
He actually looks a lot like Moore in many scenes

186-187cm peak,184-185cm now.how tall does paris look here rob .he looks like he can be the full 6ft2 Click Here or maybe around his father peak height.
Editor Rob
yeah 187cm range there
Brendon() said on 2/Nov/20
I worked at a luxury golf resort in CA and my coworker who was about 5'9 said Pierce Brosnan was a guest there and the first thing he thought when he saw him was "wow he's really tall" My guess is 6'1 without shoes, probably 6'2.5-6'3 with dress shoe
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/20
He can look 184cm at times now but then other times can still pull off 185cm with ease.
I think the current listing is fine and peak was almost 187cm
Slim 6'1" said on 25/Oct/20
187 peak
184 today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/20
Rory, overall I’d still give a 60’s-70’s Caine the edge over 80’s Brosnan but I think they weren’t too far dissimilar. Caine and Roger Moore could look similar aswell
Rory said on 20/Sep/20
Not seen the movie but in that picture it looks as if Brosnan has better posture, more footwear and is nearer to the camera, a triple advantage. So it's not surprising he looks taller. There's certainly zero chance he was taller than a peak Caine.

The most you could ever argue for Brosnan is 6ft1.5 whereas 6ft1.5 is the lowest you could ever argue for Caine.I think personally Brosnan 6ft1.25 and Caine 6ft1.75.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/20
Fourth Protocol, in the movie they look about the same...and I highly doubt Caine had lost anything significant by then at 50
Hong said on 15/Sep/20
Click Here Here's a young Brosnan with 6ft2 listed Michael caine,Interesting Brosnan looks taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Aug/20
Barely shorter than 6ft3 guys like Patrick Bergin in Taffin and Daragh O’Malley in The Long Good Friday (swimming pool scene - his first appearance onscreen). So I think 6ft1 flat as a peak is too low.
Sinclair said on 24/Aug/20
Rob, who would you say was taller, a Saint era Roger Moore or a Remington Steele era Pierce Brosnan?
Editor Rob
I find them hard to pick apart really, it could be a toss up.
Sinclair said on 9/Aug/20
Pierce Brosnan edges out 6’1” listed Robbie Coltrane in The World Is Not Enough. Therefore, unless Brosnan was wearing lifts in that film, he would have been at least a solid 6’1”. 6’2” listed James Read gave a taller impression than Brosnan did in Remington Steele. The difference between their heights was probably close to an inch. I agree with the 6’1.25” listing for Brosnan, it seems very logical.

Rampage, Brosnan may have edged out Roger Moore when both men were at their peak heights, it is not out of the question. In any case, it would have been a close call. Both men exercised brilliant posture, but I thought Brosnan’s posture was slightly superior to Moore’s. I feel Brosnan was probably taller than Moore if we go by their heights when they played James Bond. Moore was not much over 6’1” by the time of Live and Let Die. I know Brosnan eventually overtook Moore in height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/20
That being said I’d add a fraction to his peak and leave his current height alone
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/20
Slim 6’1’, i don’t think it’s fair
Slim 6'1" said on 8/Aug/20
lost 2cm at least now hes an old man
Slim 6'1" said on 8/Aug/20
quarter inch upgrade would be fulfilling
Black Fish 123 said on 6/Aug/20
He's looking more 6'0 1/2 now.
Hulk.23 said on 5/Aug/20
I think he was for sure 6’1.25/186cm at peak. Today I think he’s still in the 6’1 range, maybe a solid 185cm man I think he has lost just a small fraction
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/20
Berta, I think it’s possible Ferrell at 53 hasn’t lost really anything and was always around 190cm. On the other hand Pierce at 67 is at an age where guys lose an inch but not so much in his case!

I think 186.5-187cm peak, 185cm today
berta said on 25/Jul/20
hm if well ferrell is 190 cm then pierce is 185 today but if will is the 189 current that he is listed now then maybe pierce is down to 184 today. i see 5 cm beetween them. its hard to believe pierce could have been 187 when he looks that mutch shorter than will today i cant see pierce have lost more than max 2 cm, he have great posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/20
You’re right Viper, he was 6ft1½

:)
viper said on 26/Jun/20
Pierce looks 6-0 at most next to Will

He was never 6-1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/20
He looks a weak 6ft1 w/h Ferrell but 20 years ago on SNL looked less than 2in shorter and Will was likely 6ft3 then
Vsquad said on 25/Jun/20
Wow just saw Pierce next to Will Ferrell. Not sure he looked as strong as 6'0.75 next to him, definitely 2 full inches between them
James roy said on 22/Jun/20
He looked a solid 2 inches next to Owen Wilson in No Escape
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/20
There’s another interview Ross did with Brosnsn years before for Goldeneye where Pierce was taller
berta said on 16/Jun/20
how was jonathan ross maybe 2 cm taller than him over 10 years back when both still was at peak. and ross is listed at 185 ? i think both those guys was 186 and ross maybe had shoe advantage.
Jam Cherry said on 6/Jun/20
I would say peak is 186.5 cm and currently 185 cm on a good day

First episode of Remington Steele, next to James Read (6.2) he's clearly shorter by a big margin, possibly 2 inches.
Rich137 said on 23/Apr/20
After watching the movie Foreigner 2017. I would say he looks 6ft. But his co-star Rory Fleck Byrne looks taller than him. Yet he only claims 5.11ft. Unless heels are used for him of course?
QM6'1QM said on 13/Apr/20
Maybe real 6'1 at his peak and 183.5 cm/ 6'0.25" today for sure. Should be honest!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/20
Berta, I think in the 80’s-90’s (I.e. Remington Steele, Taffin, Lawnmower Man etc.) he could pull look 188cm. But then in something like Thomas Crown Affair looked more 185cm.


6ft1½ could be on the money peak. That’s actually 186.7cm
berta said on 9/Apr/20
guys we all know he never was 187-188 thats just extreme, but 186-187 isnt imposiblle he looked 186,5 range alot when he was skinny. But at the same time he could llok 6´1 flat alot to i think the listing is good and can see argument for a tinnt fraction over thart
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/20

Rob shorter than Jonathan Ross?

Editor Rob
He did look it when Ross stood tall, like 184 range, today I think the last few years he's been struggling to look above 184 from what I've seen. You can see with His Son, it's a fair difference, albeit he doesn't have as big a head as a 6ft 5 man might normally have.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jan/20
Paris looks more like you'd expect a son of his to look like, Dylan didn't get that polished look.
viper said on 5/Jan/20
If Will Ferrell was 6-3 this would still be too high of a listing.

In all honesty Ferrell looked to have 2.5-3 inches on him.
viper said on 5/Jan/20
Saw him at the Golden Globes on stage with Will Ferrell.

This is way too much even If you believe Ferrell's 6-2.5 listing.

Absolutely no taller than 6-0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Nov/19
No I definitely see at least 4in between them. Brosnan could still be about 6ft1 today. The son looks a good 6ft5
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Nov/19
Click Here If Pierce is 6'0 3/4 now then Dylan is 6'4 1/4 max. Click Here 1/4 more footwear than Dylan makes a 3.25" height difference here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/19
Yeah Rob, I think Paris could close to 6ft2. He’s looks a bit taller than his dad in other photos
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/19
Well Christian, you can tell that to Rob because it’s HIS idea, not mine...besides I don’t see what’s so offensive about it. If it was skin colour, religion or sexual orientation then yes there’d be a problem



Anyway let’s not steer the discussion away...I still stand by 6ft1½ peak for the Broz
Editor Rob
If the pages never got viewed or provided value, then it would be a bad idea from my view. There's lots of good options a site might implement, but many are too resource intensive (and thus raise costs) or time-intensive.

Anyway here is Pierce and Paris brosnan, I wonder if paris is now into 6ft 1-2 range!

Categorizing actors and other celebs here by nationality isn't a good idea anyway IMO.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/19
Rob, how come Pierce isn’t listed under “Irish Actors”?
Editor Rob
I probably assumed he was already there, but I shall rectify it and it raises the irish actor's average a little bit.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/19
Importer, it's fair to say that he was. He made it to 60 without any noticeable loss...in fact I think today he's no more than 2cm from his peak height (which I still think was closer to 187cm). He can still look 6ft1 now.
Importer said on 22/Sep/19
On screen Pierce Brosnan seem to get towered by John Cleese. Yet offscreen pics with him looked taller. Was he peak height in his bond films ?

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/19
I just around to Taffin and he’s barely shorter than Patrick Bergin (solid 6ft3) and towers over Allison Doody (5ft8-9). Also about 2in on Jeff Fahey in Lawnmower Man. Really I think anywhere from 6ft1¼-6ft1¾ is debatable for his peak and nowadays might still hit 6ft1 on a good day, definitely not lower than the current height
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/May/19
🎁🕵️🎂 Happy Birthday Pierce! 🎂🕵️🎁

Have a great 66th Birthday today, Pierce!

My favourite of this guy's films are 'Lawnmower Man' and 'The Long Good Friday'. Both movies show Pierce at his peak height.

6ft1.5 optimum and 6ft0.75 nowadays.
Truth Seeker said on 26/Apr/19
I shook his hand backstage at a premiere in 1997, and he was changing from one pair of dress shoes into dress boots, and was barely 5’10” in his stocking feet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/19
Rob, I think what you were saying in 05’ is still on point today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/19
Nah, “tall, dark and handsome” was the trademark. Anywhere from 6ft1 to 6ft3 is ideal. Before Craig, they all ticked that box. He’s meant to be taller than most but still able to blend in and obviously be put in siuations where he’s outsized and has to use brains rather than brawn. If a 6ft4-5 guy played Bond it would start to look ridiculous. For instance Liam Neeson would have been an awful Bond. But at the same time he’s meant to have a certain presence physically...that’s why Connery was brilliant.
Johan 185 cm said on 13/Apr/19
Rick said on 3/Jan/18
For a character like Bond average height would make far more sense than above average. Bond isn't supposed to be a physical brute, he's a spy. His specialty is blending in, his combat ability is primarily in firearms and even when he does fight hand to hand he relies on skill rather than strength. I think the original character in the novels is trained in Judo.

I'm pretty sure in the novels he was described as average in looks and stature too. An ordinary man caught up in extraordinary situations.


Bond was described as 6 foot in the books and the average male height in the 50's was 5'8". So Bond was the equivalent of a 6'1" -6'2" guy today. Nothing to do with average at all. Master tactician/hand to hand specialist what you smoking man? Bond is a male power fantasy haha.

Alot of the actors were 6'1" or near 6'2" who played him in film, Daniel craig was certainly the shortest and with modern height standards a guy who is indeed plain average.

Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 31/Dec/18
He looked 6'1" in the Bond movies and about 6'0" in the Foreigner with Jackie Chan. 6'1" sounds right for Pierce, he apparently reached his full height at 11 years old, he's barely 6 foot today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Dec/18

@ Arch Stanton:

Re: Sean Connery - I couldn't agree more! There is NOTHING WHATSOEVER gawky about Sean Connery; not now, not then, not ever! 😊👍
Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Nov/18
Pierce was barely taller than a 68 year old Roger Moore so I doubt he was more than Rob lists him. I mean if he was listed 6'1" early then it's doubtful he was much, if any, taller.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Nov/18
Connery gawky Lol??? Not even slightly. Nicholas Lyndhurst or Jarvis Cocker maybe.

Stallone is 72 now though but I know what you mean!

@Spencer

I agree with you Spencer, Pierce currently looks 6'1" as of now.
Spencer said on 11/Nov/18
6'1.75" peak
6'1" today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/18
Berta alternatively just give him 186.7cm. That's exactly 6ft1½ and he looked it consistently in the 80's-90's, that or a weak 6ft2. I don't think a 30 year old Brosnan was any shorter than a peak Colin Firth, if anything he had the edge


I'd tweak his current height to 6ft0⅞(185.1cm), not convinced he's just 184cm.
berta said on 3/Nov/18
sometimes today he can look only 184. i dont know if its just posture. But he always have good posture to it cant be it. Sometimes i think 186,5 range is possible for peak but i at the same time dont believe he have lost more than 1-1,5 cm in height max. 186 peak and 184,5 today is good estimate

Has anyone seen his pics with Roger Federer ? I don’t understand he just looks 5’10” in those ?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/18
I think it's fair to say that Brosnan may lost a tiny bit more than Firth because he's 8 years older. I agree with Berta that he could still measure around 185cm. I can't see him at just 184cm though.


Brosnan: 6ft1½ peak, 6ft0⅞ today
Firth: 6ft1⅜ peak, 6ft1 today


Didn't really think there was much between them in Mamma Mia 2, certainly not 1in anyway
Editor Rob
I was walking by daniel naprous table the other day at film con and saw he had a photo beside Pierce - he must have been a henchman for a scene, but I can't remember which Bond...would be interesting to see how Daniel looked with Pierce if there is indeed a scene.
CDS said on 1/Aug/18
@rampage: In the 1st mamma mia 10 yrs ago, I could've sworn Colin edged out pierce then too, it just didn't seem by as much? I was surprised honestly, especially since I didn't actually think firth was that tall. So that confirms firth to be the 6'1" he claims?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/18
10 years ago Brosnan edged out Firth
CDS said on 30/Jul/18
Just seen mamma Mia here we go again. And was surprised to see now that Colin firth consistently edged out pierce throughout the entire film by a good inch. I think pierce in his prime was a solid 6'1" (6'2" in shoes). So if Colin in 6'1" as he's listed here, is it possible pierce has dropped to a flat 6' these days? 6'2" skellan skarsgard also looked noticeably taller than pierce the entire film..
Editor Rob
Brosnan is in the last few years looking under 6ft 1 at times, he may well be 6ft 0.5-0.75 range now.

Some guys can reach 60's with minimal loss. But once you hit the 'Sly zone', that 65-70 range, that is when many men will begin to lose more noticeable height.
berta said on 28/Jul/18
i i think brosnan was one of the few 6 foot 1 3/8 at peak. today maybe 185 cm flat. He can sometimes look 184 today. but i believe he is over that when measured
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/18
Look more like 6'0 1/2 to 6'0 5/8 with his 6'5 son Dylan Brosnan.
James B 171.5cm said on 21/Jun/18
In the bond films really didnt look that tall.

Maybe because he has such a big head makes him look shorter?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/18
I think peak was at least the same as Firth (186.4cm)
diavolo said on 29/Apr/18
Terry: Right. Ian Fleming initially disliked the casting of Connery as Bond in Dr. No, because he thought he's too tall and too dark for the role. Later, when he saw Connery's portrayal, he changed his mind and grew to like his Bond persona despite the apparent difference between the literary and the film character's physical appearance. After Connery's success, the filmmakers opted to cast actors of similar height and appearance until Daniel Craig came along and they kinda returned to the original character in the novels.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/18
Both guys generally looked 186-187cm zone in their primes but I personally would give Brosnan the edge
Rory said on 7/Apr/18
I think in the 90s Brosnan looked 2cms taller than Moore, so Brosnan 186cm and a 67 year old Moore 184cm. At his peak though in the 1960s Moore would have been indistinguishable from Brosnan
QM6'1QM said on 4/Apr/18
I think, he's completely honest with the statement "6'2 on a good day". Definitely he was not above this in the morning (at his peak). Peak height: 6'1.25"/ 186 cm.
Height nowadays: 6'0.5-.75"/ 184 cm range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Apr/18
Rob, is it possible you temporarily had Pierce at 6ft2 back in 05'?



Certainly seems he was once down here at 6ft1½ looking at the archives
Editor Rob
He was at 6ft 1.5 for a while, but I believe he was first given 6ft 1 flat at least in late 2004.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Apr/18
I reckon Moore was still at least 6ft range in the 90's so Brosnan does look to be 6ft1½ in comparison
Erik9012 said on 31/Mar/18
Pierce and Roger looked close in height. This picture is from 1995 when Goldeneye was premiered. Pierce has a slight advantage so I'd guess he was about 1/4 inch less of 6ft2.

Terry said on 26/Mar/18
The real James Bond types are short!so to all the people commenting on here saying Daniel Craig is too short to be Bond are just uneducated. Back to Pierce Brosnan's height then, yes he is tall, about 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/18
His son is actually 6ft5, possibly even a bit more

That's if you're still unsure of giving him 6ft1½
Editor Rob
I need to be careful with the 1/8ths. I won't rule it out though.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 16/Jan/18
Probably has dipped to 184cm by 2018. But 187cm is arguable in prime.
James B said on 4/Jan/18
Rick- that could be why they chose Daniel Craig as bond.

Average in looks and height
Z186 said on 4/Jan/18
Also, we don't need to debate the ideal height for Bond actor... As the writer actually decided his measurements so we don't have to .... In the novel From Russia With Love he clearly describes Bond as 183cm and 76kg (whether that is in shoes or not, I don't know, so I suppose the least he could be is 5'11 / 75 kg.... and he is described as having a swimmers physique, though not in the same novel if I remember correctly.

I'm not sure if @Rob knows but I think average height might have gone up by half an inch in 50 years, so you could factor that in if you wanted to be picky, but according to Northwestern University anthropologist William Leonard “We’ve pretty well maxed out in terms of stature” for humans
Editor Rob: 6ft when that novel was written is certainly like a solid 6ft 1 range man today in the UK.
Z186 said on 4/Jan/18
@Ramage seems different to most who would downgrade celebs - he wants them to be taller than they actually are!
IMO Pierce would have written 6'2 in the directory is he was that or just below (187)... just seems strange that actors seem to grow an inch or two miraculously after becoming famous.

No way was Connery 188 without shoes, he is never really a head taller than many of his female co-stars- and domino (in thunderbolt) who might be five-ten in heels, is nearly as tall as him!
Women tend to tell the truth about their height more than men (because they aren't bothered) so it's often better to compare men with with known female celebs.

For a character like Bond average height would make far more sense than above average. Bond isn't supposed to be a physical brute, he's a spy.

Peak would have been not too far off 6'2.
Current I would say a flat 6'1.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 3/Jan/18
@Rampage

Any height for 007 is fine as long as the actor's above average in height. I wouldn't call 6'0" too short for any action role.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/18
6ft3 is fine but not over. Connery at a strong 6ft2 did not look gawky at all. He looked the most masculine. I think 6ft is to low for 007.

185cm-190cm perfect range...now let's get back to Pierces height
avi said on 30/Dec/17
I think the perfect Bond height is 6'1.
6'3 (legit 6'3) is too tall.
Connery at 6'2 was even looking a bit gawky at times.

I'd even go as far as agreeing with grizz that a strong 5'11 guy who is trim can pull it off.

Daniel Craig must be 5'10 flat. His build is too muscular too. Not sure what was going through their head the day he was cast as Bond.
grizz said on 27/Dec/17
I agree with Rory- 5'11-6'3 is the perfect range for playing Bond. Over 6'3 and you're entering the henchman territory,as someone mentioned (it's a common practice in the movies that the good guy is always shorter or weaker than the bad guy, some David and Goliath metaphor,I guess).

And yes, Fleming's Bond is described as a 6footer,but bear in mind that the book was written in the 50s when UK's national average was 0.5-1in shorter than today. So,IMO, 6'0.5-6'1 is the perfect height to play Bond nowadays.
Cavill is bang-on perfect for that role, even 10 years after his 1st audition. He even doesn't have to get shredded for the role, Craig's muscular physique worked out perfectly for Bond's box office performance

No he claimed 6ft2 on a good day which to me implies 6ft1½ range peak and looking at Bond, pre-Bond it's plausible. Even in Remember Me just 7 years ago he looked a good inch taller than Robert Pattinson.


He's still close to 6ft1 today
The Shredder said on 25/Dec/17
He was always just 6'1 and even claimed , 6'0.5 now is correct but no lower.
Kevin said on 25/Dec/17
6'0.5 at best nowadays. 6'1.25 peak

btw Bond in Fleming's novels is said to be 183cm, so 6'0 is really be the ideal height for Bond not 6'1-6'3 like many people think.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/17
I strongly disagree Rob. I think at worst a fraction under 6ft1 today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/17
I think Pierce still looks around 6ft1 today
Animus said on 24/Dec/17
Rob, what do you think his current height is? He looks to me like he is in the six-foot range. His arms look disproportionately long, which could indicate he has lost a lot of height.
Editor Rob: he could be 6ft 0.5 at most now, he is starting to look like he has lost more than just a small fraction, but it's natural.

For many men, that 60-65 range is where the body begins to suffer a little with disc changes/shrinkage.
Allie said on 23/Dec/17
Rob how do you think is his son, Dylan now? Surely he can't be just 6'4 like google claims.
Editor Rob: it's what is on his model agency, but then maybe he is worth a page now he has hit age 20...he does tower above Pierce, but then Pierce isn't really looking 6ft 1 range these days.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/17
Psychedelic, I think 6ft1-2 is the most ideal 007 height but up to 6ft3 is acceptable aswell. A guy Joe Mangeniello's size would look ridiculous in the role though...he'd start to look like a henchman
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 18/Dec/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
I think 6ft1 to 6ft3 is the ideal height for 007

Dear Rob before I ask my question I want to tell you that I'm a big fan of yours.and I'm new at this site. rob this question may be off topic but only an height expert like you can ans this.my question is that a person only looks tall at a height of 6 feet 1.agreed by the majoroty .and when ever I see legit tall person and I ask him his height the claim is mostly 6 feet 1, and mostly everybody now days lie about their height.thus do you think the people who we think are genuinely tall are and I'm only talking about 6 feet 1 men.are one inch shorter then their real height making them 6 feet in reality . and thus making the traditional 6 feet mark tall or maybe it was always tall because all of the 6 feet people claiming 6 feet 1 and all the 5 10 and 511 claiming 6 feet and making that mark short thus do you think all the 6 foot people are genuinely tall and claim 6 feet 1 because of the 5 feet 11 men rob plz ans this question I need your opinion. And by the way I think rob has Pierce height bang on .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
I think 6ft1 to 6ft3 is the ideal height for 007
Rory said on 16/Dec/17
Bond I think should really be minimum 5ft11 and maximum 6ft3 and age wise no younger than 35 and no older than 50. In that sense Brosnan and Dalton were the perfect age and heights as Bond.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/17
I'm not a Craig fan...I'm sorry. I'm a traditionalist and Brosnan brought the most authenticity to the role after Connery. Dalton and Moore were on the extreme ends...one too serious the other too comical
James B said on 13/Dec/17
Him being blonde didn't effect the box office either
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/17
In shoes he should be near 6ft3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/17
I can believe 6ft2 in the morning
James B said on 11/Dec/17
Rob i have seen all the bond films with Roger Moore recently and I must say pierce brosnan pales in comparison too Moore as 007.

Connery and Moore were the best as bond but Daniel craig and Pierce are tedious.
Editor Rob: I think having slightly different Bond's was good for the longevity. And it was also great that they put a 5ft 10ish guy in the role. Had zero effect on the box-office.
Grit said on 9/Dec/17
6'1.5 peak maybe 6'1" now
TheManWithNoName said on 8/Dec/17
Rob, do you think the 6'2" claim is with shoes on?
Editor Rob: early morning type claim I think.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/17
Tom King because he was clearly standing closer to the camera...
Tom King said on 4/Dec/17
I have seen Roger Federer more times and i`m 6 ft.1.5 and i was a this 0.5 in taller. I also have seen later the photos with Roger and Pierce standing on grass, not the best ground. But i think Roger is about 0.5 in taller then Pierce, and Roger is a 6ft 1in, so Pierce must be 6ft maybe out of bed in his youth a bit more, but never more than 6ft 0.25in.

JJAK said on 27/Oct/17
Listing seems accurate looked over 6 1 in 80s maybe very early 90s.
By his bond days had already started shrinking, he looked tiny in the horrible 3rd.
He often looks a weak to strong 6 foot now but he is getting up there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/17
Remember 6ft1½ is usually rounded up to 187cm (it's really 186.7cm) so it's not a huge leap to give him it. That and still roughly 6ft1 today, not convinced he's 184cm range.
berta said on 19/Oct/17
186,5 peak and 185,5 current
Lucy said on 15/Oct/17
Rob how tall would you say Pierce Brosnan wife Keeley Shaye Smith is she is listed at 5"8 by she looks taller!
Editor Rob: between 5ft 7-8 is possible, but she might actually have lost half inch or so with weight gains.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/17
6ft2 on a good day to me implies a solid 6ft1½ which I think he pulled off maybe a bit more often than Roger...
Mister lennon said on 13/Oct/17
Strong 6'1 peak. Could look 6'2 too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Oct/17
Rob, is 6ft1½ peak still arguable for Pierce?
Editor Rob: that's the most I think I'd probably argue for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/17
Could look a weak 6ft2 guy when he was younger

Thanks. 😉 👍🏻
Rory said on 1/Oct/17
I suppose it's possible guys like Dalton and Brosnan might have rounded down in an attempt to avoid being typecast, they may have been trying to avoid going down an action hero type career so were trying to play their height down. Having said that you can't rule out the chance that actually were just 6ft1 range. I think tbf to Brosnan in some of those 90s pictures with Dalton and Moore he might have been stood on uneven ground.
Rory said on 30/Sep/17
Yh those pictures from the 90s of Dalton,Moore and Brosnan are quite bizarre. Moore you'd have expected to have lost maybe 0.75 inch by then so he naturally would have looked around 184cm but Dalton looks 6ft2 and strangest of all Brosnan looks 6foot there, no more.
Editor Rob: well ultimately both Dalton and Pierce were happy to put out 6ft 1 flat to casting agents in the 80's, Pierce came out with his 6ft 2 on a good day, much like Roger Moore's out of bed 6ft 2, although Moore actually put 6ft 2 in the casting directory.

I suspect Connery once had a 6ft 3 listing associated with him, but I'm not 100% certain as I haven't found it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/17
Agreed, Slim...
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
Needs a quarter inch upgrade for both peak and current.
X185 said on 25/Sep/17
On Roger Moore's IMDb there are a load of pictures with Moore, Dalton & Brosnan side by side from numerous angles. Obviously Moore was getting on at that stage (late 90s) so had probably lost at least an inch... but both he and Brosnan are similarly shorter than Dalton, by a not un-noticeable amount... meaning Brosnan was the shortest bond before Craig going on what little evidence there is of them all together.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/17
Interesting Brett, similar to Jackman?

Axal559 said on 12/Sep/17
Back in his prime (GoldenEye, James Bond days) no doubt 6'1". In GoldenEye he only looked near an inch taller if that than Famke Janssen. Definitely 6ft range now. My father met him 5 years ago in Hawaii. My old man is a weak 6ft and Pierce had about a quarter of an inch on him. He has that tall appearance about him as well so I'm not surprised people would think the lad is taller than he is.
Anon said on 5/Sep/17
Never over 6', if that.
Ted said on 2/Sep/17
For some reason he never looked tall to me. Years ago, I was surprised to hear he was this height. A solid 6' 2'' is definitely pushing it.

186cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/17
He looked no shorter than Letterman
Jug said on 8/Aug/17
His peak was 6'1. David Letterman edged him out a little in 1995. Strong 6'1 but not more. Now looks closer to 6'0.5.
RichardSpain said on 8/Aug/17
Maybe he was 187/188 cm in the morning is plausible but not nowadays. Today seems a strong 184-185 barefoot.

Brosnan was not more than 187cm but not less than 185cm

1.87 is too much in my opinion. Never looked so tall to me.

@6'1.5

I wouldn't take anything that Charlie says seriously if I were you. He once guessed Howard Stern at 5'10"-5'11". You're right, Brosnan's still 6'0" at the very least, and more than likely 6'0.5" Peak was around 6'1" or 6'1.25" as listed.
6'1.5 said on 14/Jul/17
Charlie get off this site Pierce is 6'0" at bare minimum today
Charlie said on 11/Jul/17
Pierce certainly didn't come across as a 6'0 man in The Lawnmower Man.The female actresses in the movie were close to his height. In the movie he is approached by his Beautiful Neighbour both standing on the front lawn chatting. I was surprised how close in height Pierced looked towards the actress. I would say 1 inch height difference. I never believed Pierce to be 6'0 tall ever. He always came across as a 5'9 guy to me. Today he might be 5'8.

I still claim by my citing in the Mark hotel, NYC all those years ago... Brosnan is 187-188cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/17
I think the 6ft1½ is a better choice for Brosnan and I'd keep Moore at that aswell. That's not because of his death but because I think in The Saint days and the early Bond years he was that mark for sure. He was cast opposite some very tall actor so it didn't do his height justice, made him look average
shiva 181 cms said on 23/May/17
A real 6'1.25 guy could easily pull off near 6'2 especially on screen with angles to favor them ,especially they were both slim in their earlier films

Moore looked 6ft1 flat by his last Bond but in his first near 6ft2
RisingForce said on 19/May/17
Roger Moore at 67 years old was still very close to Brosnan's height: Click Here Click Here Click Here

I don't know if they're standing or walking in the 2nd and 3rd pic. I think standing, but in the first pic, you see Brosnan with perfect posture looks barely taller. Roger Moore didn't strike me as someone who kept his peak height a long time either. If anything, this has made me much less skeptical about Moore's height. Definitely a chance Roger was exactly as tall as he claimed to be. 6'1.5" peak and 6'2" in the morning. His low was probably 186 cm, so it's not a surprise he could look it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/17
I think giving Brosnan 187cm peak is more feasible than downgrading Moore's peak to 186cm.
berta said on 14/May/17
yeah thety where pretty close in height but i think it genereally looked like rooger moore was 186,0 guy while brosnan many times look like he was 186,5 peak.

In The Saint Moore could look near 6ft2...as could Brosnan in Remington Steele. I think a 60's Moore and and an 80's Brosnan were similar.

rob do you really think roger moore was taller than him? i think you should atleast give both 186 peak ore even give pierce littel upgrade in peak. there is no way moore was taller.
Editor Rob: both could be argued to be the same.
Rory said on 3/May/17
182cm is ludicrous. You could really argue I think somewhere between 6ft 1 to 6ft 1.5 at peak. Can't see him over 187cm and can't see him under 185cm.
6'1.5 said on 2/May/17
Hiddleston and Pratt range at peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/17
6ft2 in the morning is believable but I highly doubt he was quite in the same ballpark as Ryan Reynolds, John Cusack or Hugh Jackman. I still stand by 6ft1½ though.
James B said on 26/Apr/17
Rampage- your putting words in my mout again. I was just saying the lowest I could imagine him in my head being is 182cm but of course he isn't that short lol. It's like the lowest I could imagine John Cleese being is 6ft3 but of course in reality he isn't that low

And yes perhaps even the full 6'1.5 is actually imaginable for Brosnan but never would I guess him at a proper 6'2 188cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Apr/17
I think 187cm for both guys peak is reasonable
Willes188 said on 26/Apr/17
He was probably 0.1-0.5mm taller than Moore when they were in their primes.


If Moore is going to have 6ft 1.5 as his peak height then it's more than fair for Brosnan to get it as well, if not then downgrade Moore to 6ft 1.25 and keep Brosnan at this.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Apr/17
And sorry if he's 182cm then so is Colin Firth and Gerard Butler
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Apr/17

James B said on 24/Apr/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/17
I think 187cm peak is perfect, he could even look 188cm at times. He still looked 186cm up to just a few years. 182cm is a such joke, James. When did he ever look that short?



He was barely shorter than solid 6ft3 Patrick Bergin in Taffin and had a decent 5in over 5ft8½ Allison Doody. He actually gave a taller impression with her than Roger Moore did in A View To A Kill and more similar to Connery in The Last Crusade. I don't see 6ft1½ as an unreasonable argument at all. If I started arguing 6ft2 for him then yeah I'd probably be pushing it. I think 6ft1 flat and 6ft2 are out of the question. This is the likelihood as I see it...


6ft1¼: 30%
6ft1½: 45%
6ft1¾: 25%



Rampage- when I say he looked 5'11.5-6'1.25 It means that 182cm is the lowest I would imagine pierce being. And sorry but I could never imagine Pierce being as tall as 188cm.

shiva 181 cms said on 17/Apr/17
He doesn't have the vibe of a 6'1+ tall guy on screen maybe due to large head and his built , I wouldn't have thought he was over 186cms with Liam neeson in 2006

I agree with you on that to a degree but I think pierce always looked more than 5'11 to me in his films. Certainly he looks like a man who is over average height but clearly at the same not a VERY tall guy.
berta said on 12/Apr/17
woooouwwh the average guess think he was even over 6 1 1/2. i think that could be close maybe little under. a 186,6 guy at peak maybe? and today 186 but ould look shorter because different posture.

I'd say the tallest height without much problems is 6'-6'1 and its an ideal preference for women
@ James b I'd say 5'7 is better than 6'4 as its only 2" below average and 6'4 is 7friggin inches over average

@James B: anyone can get cancer tho. Suzanne sommers gad it of course female but still. Or anything else. Look at Michael j fox he's short and has parkinsons. Not disagreeing but saying it can happen at any height none is exempt. Now I have said that no height so superior but I'd rather be 6'4 like I am than 5'6" I will say that because I'm accustomed to it already but would take 5'6" over being 6'8" or 6'9" unless I were meant to be a pro athlete.

@James B: no height to me is superior to another. If Insomniak at 6'5" wants to be taller that's cool but I was saying that when you are a height already like 6'5" that is less problematic than 6'8" I made that in reference to the statement he would rather be 3" taller than 3" shorter. I don't think either is "superior" really but for me I'd go with the least problematic and the better quality of life like not having to slouch under every doorway. As for cancer I don't think your risk is really any lower at 5'6" than it'd be at 6'0".

@James B: well said! Stern is 6'5" which with some muscle could still look reasonable. He has long limbs more than likely just regularly proportionate and is a guy I doubt dips below that mark and was likely above it in his peak by maybe 1/4-1/2@. Probably 196.2-196.6 prime

@Insomniak: and if that's how you feel that's fine. I totally agree with you most people would rather be taller than shorter hence why so many guys lie up about their height. All I am saying and I am not swaying you one way or another I am just being practical like I am. I don't see anything good about being a height like 6'8 or even 6'6 if not playing pro ball. That is not to say someone who isn't that height doesn't like it but to me it'd be more of an inconvenience than anything. Of course if you are there is nothing you can do you just are who you are. Point that I'm making why would someone want to go out of their way to have to buy sometimes specially made clothes, beds, vehicles, and have to go out of their way to adjust and get different plane seats etc. sounds a bit foolish to me to always be rife for space and inconvenienced but like I said whatever floats someone's boat is cool and it's different strokes for different folks. But I have my opinion just like you do on the subject as does The Don. You both appear to be ridiculing me because I don't "wish" I were taller than the 6'4" and change that I am. And no not "every" person in the western world wishes they were taller. Most guys who are well over 6' typically don't but there are exceptions. You see other taller guys here like Ali baba who is 6'6",SJH who is just about 6'7" and Christian who is also 6'5" and a little say that they'd go with 6'4" over 6'6 or 6'7" as well so it isn't just me. Bobby3342 who is my height said it gets too expensive once you pass 6'3"ish. It's not much different from 6'4 I'd say but he has a point once you hit the high marks like 6'6" it is. And they aren't the only ones there have been loads of others who have even gone as far to say they wouldn't want to be over 6'2". Now id take my height over just about anything because I am accustomed to it for me as a person not because it's a better height than something else is. It's about being happy with ones own self and someone who is plenty tall enough wishing to be taller and not really using the height for anything to me is a bit foolish like Ali Baba once said. It's more an insecurity or an ego thing at that point when already very tall guys claim or wish to be taller




You could even argue a case that being 5'6 is better than being 5'10 because you have a lower risk of getting certain illnesses like cancer the shorter you are.

Well James to be fair I don't think it's howard sterns height that makes him visually unappealing.But I guess you do have a point that tall heights may not look good when you're gangly,but once you start putting on muscle I think you can pull off any height.


I think very tall guys should probably aim to pack on muscle because they can always pull of that look well. Shorter guys can't pull of that look well because it makes them look short and square.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Apr/17
Anyway I still think the Broz is around 185-186cm today, not as low as 184cm. In his prime 186-187cm which in feet should really qualify more as 6ft1½ than 6ft1¼.
James B said on 2/Apr/17
Few nights ago met this guy who claimed to be "6ft5" and even with poor posture he looked towering and very tall. Infact looked taller than guys I have bumped into who would claim to be 6ft6 so I have no doubts he was nothing less than an honest 6'5.

It goes to show why many people have no idea just how towering a true 6ft6 looks like because 6ft4 range guys often claim it.

@The Don: that comment doesn't make any sense at all. And if you see what Arch said as well as James B you see it is. I guess whatever floats your boat but why would someone want to be a height where they are close to hitting their heads on doorways or having to duck under them. That seems odd to me but hey we are all different. But don't call the comment BS just because you don't agree with it.
James B said on 1/Apr/17
Being tall does not suit everyone. It all depends how well you can pull it off because not every tall man looks like Rock Hudson or Pierce Brosnan do they? You get lots of tall guys who are more like herward stern or Brosnans son 'awkward' and gangly basically.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/17
I think Clint Walker is really the only guy who didn't really feel awkward with his height. He had a confident stride that at times could come off as a bit arrogant but at least he didn't try to hide it like others.

Anything over 6'5 is too tall IMO. A legit 6'6 like Clint Walker looks massive, a big body to carry around. I think a guy like Manganiello or Rock Hudson can look very good at 195 ish but it's still a big height and a bit too big to be ideal. I was watching a film yesterday and Chuck Connors at probably 6'5.75 looked quite awkward in a lot of scenes standing. That could never be an ideal height.


Arch- but still you would not want to be 6'4.75 would you? I think your height of 6'1.5 is much better than 6'5.
insomniak said on 28/Mar/17
So arch if you were given the option to be rather 6'6 or 5'4,which would you choose.

What a load of BS Canson, there is no such thing as being "too tall" as a man, especially in Western countries.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
