Looks the same height as Meloni

Peak: Strong 6ft1
Today: Weak 6ft

That fair, Rob?
Editor Rob: I think about 6ft 1 peak was ok for him, he has lost height.

Always looks an inch taller than Meloni. 6'1" easily at peak, probably less today.

At 71, can he today be 5'11.5 or 6'0?

Rob do you think 5'11.5-6'0 is possible for him?
Editor Rob: today he can look under 6ft...peak I'm still not sure, I think with a guy like Hulk Hogan that's a decent gap.

If anyone can see how he looked with Tom hanks in bonfire of the vanities it would probably be another good indicator.

Due to being 71,he is at least 6'0,maybe 5'11.5 at bedtime.

Yeah,around 184cm today, however, I honestly think he was 186cm at peak.(note that he was tall a tad taller than jerry orbauch in the mid 90's, who still looked 185cm at that point)

Actually, in recent episodes, he looks fairly level with Meloni. My guess is that he was 6`1 at peak, and now probably a flat 6`0.

Maybe add Belzer on celebweights as 140-150 pounds, there are other 150 lbs listings out there but he claimed himself 140 lbs on Howard Stern.

He always looks this height on svu. Sometimes can seem a tad bit taller, but that is probably just because of his build.

It's so funny. I know that he's tall, but he always seemed "short" compared to those frigging giants (Secor and Kotto) on Homicide. Great to hear he's a nice guy. He seems that way. He's cute too!

I was just standing next to Belzer in a convenience store on the Upper West Side (10/6/07). He was at least an inch taller than me (I am 6'1½". Now it is possible that he seemed taller because he was in a business suit and wearing dress shoes, whereas I was wearing sneakers. But he was definitely taller than me.

Awesome. He's gold when he's on Real Time with Bill Maher. He's not just any other Hollywood progressive... dude does his homework.
Glenn said on 16/Feb/07
Very down to earth.I see him all the time.
J. said on 16/Feb/07
He seems like a cool guy. Was he, Glenn?

a undoubtly 6'1 great actor and very attractive personality who is definitely not used enough; It seems that nobody can "do wothout him" but that nobody really wants to make him play what he yet should deserve!
sam said on 25/Sep/06
I saw him at 30th street station in Philly...6'1" is about right.
Korben said on 24/Sep/06
yay the belz
after watching a lot of law and order hes defianlty quite tall, about an inch taller then elliot stabler . In a certain scene he is 2 inches taller then captain, but might have been camera. Id give a strong 185-maybe 186.
