He deserves at least 186cm.

Godlike performance in Hostel II.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/18
He doesn't look under this mark at all
Junior Hernandez said on 6/Feb/18
In Hostel II look like a legit 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/17
186cm is the lowest I'd argue.
Paleman said on 18/May/17
Still kind of hard to believe he is only flat 6'1", I'd say he looks more like the 186 cm range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/17
Looks 188cm on Desperate Housewives
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Mar/17
Well, he made a nice meal for the dogs in Hostel II! Served him right for having those intentions in the first place!
6ft1 is my final offer! 😝

186-187cm I think, personally
berta said on 7/Jan/17
i aalways thought 187 was little to high. 186 sound perfect but 185 is probably good too
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Apr/16
Rob, which of these is most probable?

A) 189cm/187cm
B) 188.5cm/186.5cm
C) 188cm/186cm
D) 187.5cm/185.5cm
E) 187cm/185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Aug/15
He looks too imposing on-screen to be less than a strong 6ft1 guy.

Ron, surely there's more to go by than just a character's ID or whatever?

"Richard Burgi height: 6ft 1¼in (186cm)"

Tallest regular on Desperate Housewives.

@Editor Rob: I wouldn't blindly go with the heights listed on Breakout Kings. 5'9 Robert Knepper was given 5'10 or 11 (can't quite remember, but it was either of the two), and 6'1.5 Nicholas D'Agosto was given 6'4. If you think he looks 6'1 after seeing him in a few things, that's fair. I haven't seen him enough to completely rule anything out but 6'2, he's not that tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/14
Aswell that puts Bruce Campbell at 6ft flat. Burgi easily has 1in on him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/14
But Rob, that's just a character. In The Sentinel his character had an I.D. of some sort that read '6ft2'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Dec/13
I asked this before but Rob why did you downgrade him?

I thought you said he can look either 6ft1 or 6ft2 and is most likely somewhere between them...
[Editor Rob: I'm going with the height he had for that tv show he popped up in]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/13
@Cole: 185cm is too low for him. He was Burn Notice recently and he was easily 1in or more taller than Bruce Campbell. Closer to 6ft2, IMO.

Hes also heavier than 185lbs. He's a pretty jacked dude. 200lbs minimum.
cole said on 7/Oct/13
To be fair, if actors were to be listed after their Breakout Kings placard listing, Nicholas D'Agosto would be 6'4, and Robert Knepper would be 5'10. Looks like they are overplaying some of the heights on that show? Burgi can look 185-186 cm range imo. And personally I wouldn't bet on 187-188 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/13
187cm is nearer and can look 6ft2.
He was the tallest on Desperate Housewives.
Personally I think he's somewhere between 6ft1.5-2.

"Richard Burgi height: 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"
cole said on 28/Jul/13
6'1 range is right. Can pull off looking near the 6'2 mark, but I don't think he would measure 188 cm, possibly 186 cm but nothing over that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/13
Rob, why did you downgrade him?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/12
Exactly Alex.
Alex (London) said on 18/Sep/12
Well he would certainly fit the Ian Fleming 007 ideal better than little Daniel Craig - who looks more like a traditional Bond villain!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/12
Think about it. He has dark hair, blue eyes and is near 6ft2. All he'd need to do is pull off a decent British accent...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Sep/12
If he was British (no disrespect to Americans) he'd make an ideal James Bond, would you agree Rob?
[Editor Rob: I don't know about that one]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/12
IMO, "Richard Burgi height: 6 ft 1.75 in (187cm)". He's a big broad guy with an imposing presence which can make him pass for 6ft3. A bit like Chris Noth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/12
Rob, is 6ft1 flat or 6ft2 more likely for Richard?
[Editor Rob: at times he can look both, might be somewhere beteeen them ]
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 30/Jul/12
Around 6ft 1in.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jul/12
Rob, is 188cm possible for Burgi?
[Editor Rob: not impossible]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/12
Rob, is 6ft2 possible for this guy? I've seen him
on The OC recently aswell as Desperate Housewives
and The Sentinal and he looks huge compared to some
people...

From tv series Breakout Kings:

What do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: looks interesting]
moe said on 27/May/11
He is listed at 6'1" in this article. In Starship Troopers 2 he looked a little bit shorter than 6'1.5" (1m87) Ed Lauter when they were standing face to face.

By the way his weight is listed as 180 lbs. in the article. Maybe you can add him in celebweights Rob? This article is older I think from 1987, so I don't know if his weight is still the same.
xkon said on 17/Nov/10
I think 6ft1.5 (187cm) sounds right. He is taller than 6ft Brenda Strong with heels.

187 cm is completly wrong.

The man is clearly around 5'11" ( 180 cm ).
Duss said on 13/Aug/08
In Cellular, Kim Basinger describes him as 5'11". Now way he's 6 feet.
Ramsey said on 21/Jul/08
I think he is a solid 6ft. Bruce Young is 6' 4'' and towered him in The Sentinel
micka said on 15/Jan/08
187cm is not a little bit hight for him ?
In the santinel Sandburg is 171 and Elison(aka Burgi)tower him bim but not there is not 15cm between the two men...Is there ?
Anonymous said on 18/Sep/06
possibly 188 cm
Anonymous said on 22/Mar/06
he does look over 6 feet
mask said on 23/Jun/05
I think he is more like 185-6 cm (6'1")
