Woah, only now I realized he had died. R.I.P.

As to his height, the 182 cm listing on Google seems way too low, at least for his peak. I remember in Oz he looked quite tall and lean, I thought he was well over 6'1". Looked closer to 182-183 cm range in his later years, though, but as to his peak I can't buy anything lower than the current listing. I think I once saw a whopping 6'3" listing for him on one site.

I concur with the upgrade. He looks more of this at his peak than the previous height of 5’11.75

@Rampage: me either

Might’ve been a guy who went from a strong 6ft to a weak 6ft.

I actually had no idea he had died until he was added to this site!

Powerful actor RIP

182 may be too low. Key is what was Samuel L Jackson in 2003 when SWAT was filmed? They could look about an inch apart in height maybe 1.5”. Possible Jackson was still 6’1.5 back then and that Cathey is 6’0” even or 6’0.25

I think Reg was a man by his late 50's who had lost some height...at times he seemed under six feet, although maybe his posture contributed to that.

This fits him better than the 182 cm Google/IMDB gave him. Although granted I've no idea whether he had shrunk to that range before he passed
Canson said on 20/Feb/18
He looked maybe 1” or so shorter than Samuel L in SWAT

Yeah a strong 6ft was my guess.

Great actor and way younger than I thought. He looked maybe a tad taller than this on The Wire with Aiden Gillan, with whom he had almost all his scenes. I think he could look shorter with the Oz cast but Cathey could slouch a lot.
