Looks an easy 5'10ish guy here.

He was 5'8" next to 6'4" Bill Duke. Predator was epic though the whole cast lied about their height. Sonny Landham claiming 6'4" is like the 6'2" listings for Carl Weathers.
Editor Rob
you couldn't really do a proper height analysis of the cast in Predator as the ground is mostly uneven, barring a few scenes.
Chaves once did a Walker, Texas Ranger episode and could look a good couple of inches on Chuck.

Looks 177 in the pic. Must've been a good 178 in his prime. Great actor.

Considering this guy is listed as 177 cm, and not 180-182, gotta say, he's honest and knows he doesn't need to inflate height to display his talents. 176-177 is the most probable for him, definitely 178 maybe even 179 (if he is 177 at noon) upon having a good night's rest. 5'9.75 for me.

Interesting that there is only about 1-1.5" difference according to you.I mean his hairlevel is quite high (receding?)and thick at the same time but still by looking at the general aspect he offers I can understand how some might see 2"difference here

Wow, Iā€™m very jealous that you got to meet a lot of people. And you have Personal portraits with them. The movies these people Were in are nothing short of spectacular
Editor Rob
It is certainly been interesting meeting a lot of actors, from movies I myself loved growing up...and I'm grateful it can be part of my job so to speak. Maybe that's one reason I have kept doing the site so long, when normally I lose interest in topics after a couple of years.

I see people judge always higher.. I see 1 inch beteween them no more. In cm max 2'7 cm is the difference. The guy is 176 on the nose. Where do you see a 5'10 guy there?
MAD SAM said on 31/Jul/18
Looked 5ā€™10ā€ in predator, gotta be 177 cm at least

I agree on 5'9.5", seems average-ish.
Bobby said on 6/Oct/17
How is this guy 5'9.5, I see a clear two inch height difference. He's 5'10, is there a footwear advantage?
World Citizen said on 2/Jun/17
Looks accurate.
com said on 12/Feb/15
Rob, how much difference in this pic? 0.5-1 inch?
Editor Rob
I'd say anywhere in 1-1.5 inch range.

Editor Rob
no worries, I gave him an instant change back to Male.

Nice to see he recovered from that tree to the chest.

yep truth in celeb heights!! nice one Richard.
LG69 said on 14/Feb/12
I think 5'9.5" is accurate...could be 5'10"...his hair makes him look over 5'10".
ChiasmataX said on 12/Dec/11
Accurate listing, 176.5cm is as close as it gets to his real height. Just consider that a legit 178cm guy will have the eye-level equivalent to the mid-forehead of a 173cm guy in picture. This guy looked taller because of his hair.

Near 5'10 rob? 177cm on the nose rather than 5'9.5(176.5cm)? if no footware difference hes clearly nearer 5'10 than 9
Editor Rob
I don't believe he looked almost 5ft 10.

Assuming equal posture/footwear this is a good photo demonstrating a 1.5 inch difference.

First to comment here, he looks in the 5'9.75 - 5'10 range.
