@Rob 5'7 5/8 next to Tom Hardy ??
Editor Rob
Wouldn't go quite that short, feel he is quite close to 5ft 8.

Rob, how do you think he looks so tall next to Donald Glover(listed at 174cm here) and Rami Malek and Joaquin phoenix.
Editor Rob
He can look pretty close to Joaquin's height...has a benefit in that his head is a bit smaller than average.

Makes me wonder how tall Jackie Chan really is. I know that Jackie and Riz are listed as 5'7.75" in your database, but I personally feel that Jackie Chan has a small edge over Riz. I mean look at these photos.

At first, I thought it was all just the advantage of the certain camera angles from which the photos were taken. But now don't think that's the case either. I mean, Jackie has a small edge over Riz, even after tilting his head in this photo.

Oh, and btw, their footwears look all normal and natural to me. I don't think that any extra cushions were added inside them.

Chan could be a fraction taller, but looking at the heel on their shoes, I would have guessed Chan has a fraction thicker heel.

What is he maximum you would give him.

He looks 2 inches shorter than tom hardy in some photos and in some the same height and also 1 to 1.5 inches shorter than matt Damon and approx 1 inch shorter than James corded.
Editor Rob
I think I'd say he is quite close to 5ft 8, that is highest I'd have guessed, though he has good posture and smallish head.

I think 5'7 1/2 is ideal for him

High eye level doesn't help him look taller next to Tom Hardy. I guess 5'7 1/2 will be Riz height.

Looked a good 1.5 inches shorter than Tom Hardy in Venom. He's probably 5'7.5" at most.

He can sometimes look only 2-3 inches shorter than Mads Mikkelsen.
Grit said on 27/Oct/17
171-172 range
Sam said on 5/Jun/17
There's a chance he's nothing over 5'7.25"-5'7.5" but at times he can seem taller on-screen. I wonder how much he'd look taller than someone like Jon Stewart.

I got to be 5'10 if he's near 5'8.

With a 5'10" (though, I kind of doubt he's a full 5'10") Cuba Gooding, Jr.

Riz Ahmed looks very close to how I did in HS--same height and very lean/thin build. So when I saw him in Rogue One I was relating to him quite well. In fact, I also look facially similar to him; I just have a rounder face and slightly different eyes. LOL. Regardless, I agree that his height is around 172cm--not average but not quite short either.

Looks much shorter than Diego Luna (5' 9) at the Rogue One premiere.
Sam said on 14/Dec/16
His character Naz in The Night Of is reported as 5'7" on his rap sheet but he does appear a bit taller than with the other actors. Probably just over 2 inches under Michael K. Williams and maybe 4.5 under John Turturro.

Think 5'7.5 is spot on. Brilliant upcoming actor. Amazing in The Night Of.
Andrea said on 2/Dec/16
Rob, could you add "The night of" to his credits? I think he's probably well known for that tv series (a pretty good show, btw)...
In one episode they show his driving license and his height is down at "5-07"! I don't know if he's as low as 5'7 but he looks quite short on the show (shorter in fact than - *SPOILER ALERT* - almost every inmate in the prison scenes)!

@Rob, wasn't he listed as 5'7.5?
Editor Rob
I guessed him at 172cm, I think he has the benefit of a small head which can help him look taller.

Based on?
Editor Rob
I think with bill paxton, he looks a weak 5ft 8.
