184 area. Anything More or less is wrong.

I've watched a lot of American Gods and Im not buying 6'1 for Whittle and 6'2 is laughable. He looks to be about the same height as Dane Cook and in a couple of scenes Cook might have edged him out. Now that might have been Cook's hair so Im willing to give Whittle 6'0 but there is no way imo he 6'1. He is dwarfed by Schrieber on American Gods there are many shots of them together and it looks about 5 inches to me that pic above is deceptive we can't see footwear and Schrieber is dropping some height Whittle is really muscular and 6'0 range is certainly not short so it might give him a little an illusion of being a little taller then he is but I would bet on Whittle being 5'11.75 like Cook before 6'1.

Here are some more pictures form the same event that I think show a more accurate view of the height difference:

There are other pictures showing that the height is a bit more than the featured picture up top. That also assumes with Men's Journal recently describing Pablo as 6'3" - I don't think he is, but it is weird they'd underestimate him that much.

All of this is to say that I don't think he's any taller than the current listing.

I'd say a bit less than 6.1
Such a nice guy. Beware if you ever meet him: he ADORES giving hugs, lol.
I am looking forward to watching him in American Gods.

Ricky looks no more than 4in shorter in that photo w/h Pablo Schreiber (solid 6ft5) and he's slouching.

He looks like a weak 6'1. Morning height he could be 6'1 but he looks more like 6'0.5. Him and Bob Morley who was a costar on the 100 only appear to have a 2-2.5 inches between the 2 of them. Bob Morley is listed as 5'10 and that listing looks 99.9 % accurate for Morley. So realistically I have to say 6'.0.50 inches tops for Whittle, but again that's just my opinion and what I see. :)

Btw Rob, I've noticed a few people going up from that CW show the 100. Michael Beach is another actor who appeared in the show. I had the pleasure of meeting him recently in Parsippany, NJ. Really nice guy. Anyways had a picture with him he's listed 5'9 online which I think is a shoe height for him because looking at him in person he looked 5'8.50. I'm 181 cm myself and I cleared him by 3 inches. I'd put a picture up of me and him but we both had relaxed stances so it wouldn't be a good picture to judge. Be curious to see your input on him!

I think he can look 6ft1 range when he stands at his tallest.
Editor Rob: actually he looks a guy at times with a loose kind of stance, but when he was on strictly come dancing standing tall Didn't look under it

Lol looks like taller Adam Sandler

I dunno about 6ft 1 for this guy. I've met Jamie Lomas and in person he's about 5'11 I think, this guy didn't look that much taller than him in Hollyoaks..it wouldn't surprise me if he was 6ft range.

Would look near his claim if he stood better with Pablo
Arch Stanton said on 9/Aug/16
Perhaps he got measured in shoes and is going with that?
Sam said on 8/Aug/16
Rob how tall would you say actor Chris Fountain is? To me in Hollyoaks he didn't look any taller than 5'9, especially earlier on when he was still young, but then when he appeared on Corrie I thought he could look nearer 5'10 sometimes oddly enough, even though he was already 21 when he left Hollyoaks so very unlikely he grew.
Editor Rob: between 5ft 9 and 10 range is quite likely

Didn't realize he was this tall, I thought he was similar sort of height to Craig David but not looked much at him. I wouldn't mind looking like him, if I had his sort of look though I'd grow long dreadlocks!
Editor Rob: I think he can look anywhere from just over 6ft to 6ft 1 range, but his 6ft 2 claim I just can't see him looking that big.
