Just watched Thinner again.

I was analyzing his height the way through and thought he looked a little above average. Looked his height up online and saw him listed at 6 ft. I'm thinking nah....there's no way he's almost at my height.

So I check to see if Rob has a listing for him. 5'10.5? - that sounds more like it.

I can't see him less than 5'10 or more than 5'11 at a low, so let's just split that and guess 5'10.5 as listed.

Seems about right. This guy looked shorter than 5'11" Joe Mantegna in Thinner.

This is a guy who did have me fooled as someone approaching six foot, at times I do think he could've passed for a 5'11" guy at peak but with Paxton not so much. Could you add The Unbelievable Truth, Safe Men and Tombstone to his credits?

He looks a solid 6 foot guy in THINNER and in the sopranos episode he was in. Unless he has shrunk he was IMO at one time 6'. Great actor as well highly underused

Ok... So even after seeing him with Bill, you still think he's somewhere in 5'10.5-5'11 range? Whatever... I certainly am not gonna lose any sleep over this listing! I have not seen enough to say he's 100% not over 5'10 but, FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN, i wouldn't have guessed him over 5'10, let alone 5'11!
Editor Rob
well 5ft 10.5 is certainly nearer.
Andrea said on 24/Oct/16
So there's a chance he's not even 5'10 and he gets listed at 5'11??? LOL
Editor Rob
I'm saying you could make a case for 5ft 10.5.
Andrea said on 24/Oct/16
I don't think my 5'10 max guess is all that wrong...
You can see him with Bill Paxton here (and Bill looks around 5'11 beside you): Click Here
Probably not the best photo, but here's another comparison with Kevin: Click Here
Editor Rob
I wouldn't rule the chance out, 5ft 10.5 could be a closer guess.
Andrea said on 23/Oct/16
Yeah, in that picture he can look over 5'10 but again it is just one picture and Kevin doesn't look like he's standing at his tallest there...
I thought he didn't look any more than 5'10 on the show...

I had read somewhere that wearing the suit for Robocop was painful for him since he was taller than Weller, so was shocked to see him listed 5'11, unless Weller wasn't 6 foot back in the day...
Andrea said on 22/Oct/16
Actually, what i'm saying is that 5'10 (not 5'11) is the most i would guess him at...
From what i remember, he didn't look over 3 inches taller than Kevin Chapman on the show!
Editor Rob
I think it is arguable click here he could be a bit more than 3 inches taller, 5ft 10.5 range may well be closer.
Andrea said on 22/Oct/16
Patrick Simmons... Do you really think he's a 5'11 guy, Rob? O.o
I had completely no idea he was listed at 6' (which i presume is his claim then)... Honestly, i really wouldn't have guessed him over 5'10 in POI... I thought he was a typical average 5'9-5'10 guy! I'll try to rewatch a couple of episodes, maybe i'm wrong, but as far as i remember he looked noway near 5'11, let alone 6'! He also was in a couple of episodes in Banshee and he gave me the same impression (5'9-5'10)...
Editor Rob
I think 5ft 11 is the most I would guess him at...he may well look under it at times.
