@Ali Baba

you're making the same point i do on this site with the head lengths. throwing Rob's head on top of McCann's comes a decent amount past his. If you measure like this Rory is lucky to be 6'4.75. Rob's head is about 9.5 inches i think so 9.5 + 68 is 77.5 which means Rory should be about equal with if Rob's head was placed on top as per the picture you posted. i say this guy is 6'5 max
Ali Baba said on 6/Feb/14
Even JT's estimate shows him only (only? LOL) being about 8.5" above Rob's height, which is 6'4.75" and doesn't account for Rob's worse posture. Could be in the 6'4.25" or so, but not much more.
JT said on 6/Feb/14
Click Here Rob has worse posture too.
Balrog said on 5/Feb/14
I think 6'5'' flat for him would be perfect.
sigge said on 5/Feb/14
He could be a fraction under 6'5. Maybe 6'4.75?
Ali Baba said on 4/Feb/14
Considering that Rob is 5'8.25" tall and has previously said his head is 9.5" long then I don't see how Rory can even be 6'5".

he's tall def. a 6"6 but look how tiny his arms are.
avi said on 2/Feb/14
@Rob he isnt a full .75 inch taller than 6'4.4-6'4.5 McPartlin. I think 6'5-6'5'.25 is what you should list him no 6'5.5 is really stretching it (in terms of this site). i mean it just doesnt make sense how Mcpartlin who is not over 6'4.5 is only 1/2 inch to .6 inch shorter. even IF we gave .75 inch difference then 6'5.25 is still generous enough for McCan.

To me he looks more 6'4 range in these photos, but it could just be because he has a large head, must be 11 inches long?
jimmy said on 1/Feb/14
Clive Russell looked an inch taller in person Rob?
[Editor Rob: clive can look nearer 6ft 6 than some guys can, Rory never struck me as a big 6ft 6. Actually there was one guy I met a couple years back who said 6ft 6 and actually was that range, but he dropped 3 inches in a photo so it's useless!]
Lorne said on 30/Jan/14
I agre Mangiello is a weaker 6'5, he could be a flat 195cm at night(Rather than 195.58, which is 6ft5.) I think this guy is a more solid 6'5. But with Rob saying he'd be similar to Joe and Ken Kirzinfer, he should really be listed 196cm, since he could(by Rob's own admission) be 195.5...

The first time I saw this guy was on an Iron brew advert, he walked over a grate and it blew his kilt up. I remember thinking he looked big.

It sounds like you're starting a completely different coversation there. :-0

i think he is 6'5-6'5.25 so yeah we are on a similar page!
but the reason why you see people listed sometimes a litte over is because Rob factors in IF they were to stand military posture which isnt entirely because Rob can also stand complete erect too! and also not everyone stands full when measured. for example i used to stand straight but not absolute straight. i remember i got 70 inches at doctors and i measured 70.25 at home (back in early 2009 i think).
Joe Mangiello would probably measure 6'4.8 at worst. both guys are very similar. Even Mcpartlin (as Rob drew lines below) has Rory at maybe a 1/2 taller than him.
Lorne said on 20/Jan/14
I agree Avi, I said 196cm from the start. But if you scroll down, people we're saying to knock off half an inch. I mentioned the 196 challenger, and Rob went down to 197. If Rob went, that would be the next step! Of course that is how listings evolve, and with this guy, he could use a downgrade(based on what Rob said below as well) Really I was just referring to a pattern with many listings, not Rory's specifically. But I'm sticking with 196cm/6ft5.25, with a chance 195.5cm night time. But I promise you he'd edge out a Joe Mangiello...
avi said on 19/Jan/14
@Lorne says on 16/Jan/14

the reason why is because he looks a weak 6'5. also if add it up Rob comes way past his chin which (2 inches or so) so if Rory has a 10.5 inch head which is stretching it, and IF Rob came up to the bottom of the chin then it would be 10.5 inch diffference. Since Rob comes up 2 inches above it AND is slouching a tad, which I wont even factor in, 10.5 - 2 = 8.5 inch difference. 68 + 8.5 = 76.5 which is 6'4.5. so as you see 6'5 is a very fair listing. Ali Baba has a point he can look 6'4 range but obviously it may be too low to call him in the 6'4.5 range.
issa said on 19/Jan/14
Rob,do you think he would be edged out by Ken Kirzinger.
[Editor Rob: I think they could look quite similar in person, it could be they are much closer than just half inch.]
issa said on 18/Jan/14
Rob,do you think he would edge out Ken Kirzinger.
[Editor Rob: I think Ken looks 6ft 5, Rory looks that range more than how 6ft 6 men can look.]
Balrog said on 18/Jan/14
Rob you think he would edge out Manganiello?
[Editor Rob: tough one, I've given him 6ft 5.5 but he can look just 6ft 5. I would say he might edge joe out if measured, but there probably isn't really much in it.]
Lorne said on 16/Jan/14
Thank you, Rob! Between 6'5 and 6'6 is fine. What's funny, is now everyone is insisting 6'5 flat. I swear, you could drop him to 194, and people would insist he is 6ft3:)
Moke said on 13/Jan/14
I haven't been on this site for months now. I have the feeling that the actors are getting taller and taller ; ) I mean this dude is not much taller than 6'4''
Powerhouse said on 11/Jan/14
6'5 flat
avi said on 11/Jan/14
@Rob

Thanks for uploading...Yeah its very small. Must be half inch difference. If Ryan is really a legit 6'4.5 then Rory could be 6'5.2 but I really think a strong 6'5 is a better fit. I think he'd be like Kurt Kurtznger height.
[Editor Rob: he could be similar to Ken, around 6ft 5 mark, I doubt early 40's he lost height.]
avi said on 10/Jan/14
@Rob

So I think 6'5 would be generous enough for him. Can you get a pic of 6'4.5 guy like Ryan mcpartlin and see if this guy has a solid half inch on Ryan by comparing the 2 photos?
[Editor Rob: I think it this is close, I know Ryan has about a cm more hair in comparison to Rory so I'd say he appears a bit taller.

brotha said on 10/Jan/14
Difference in eye level is an easy 10 inches. Guys saying only 6'4" are whack.
avi said on 10/Jan/14
@[Editor Rob: he looks pretty similar in person to the challenger but he has more of a solid 10 inch head than the challenger.]

OK so he is 8.5 inches taller than you? You come 2 inches above his chin and let's assume his head is 10.25 so if say he really is 6'4.5 weak 6'5
[Editor Rob: in person I think he can look around 6ft 5...but then a guy like clive russell actually looked taller than rory did, but he has a slimmer figure which can always help.]
Mathew said on 9/Jan/14
[Editor Rob: he looks pretty similar in person to the challenger but he has more of a solid 10 inch head than the challenger.]

---

If they look similar in person I can believe 6'5.5". The challenger does appear taller than any 196 cm guy on this site that I've seen in his photo, but I think usually a 6'5" range guy won't stand as tall as challenger 15 did in a photo with someone much shorter.
avi said on 9/Jan/14
@Ali Baba says on 7/Jan/14
Agreed not looking 6'5.5-6'6 but 6'5 is possible. Probably a weak one in reality but damn close. If you stoodnext to hI'm I think you'd have a solid inch maybe 1.25 but if you do head size and compare where rob comes on him its easy to see there's 8.5 max. Rob is 2 inches above a 10.5 max head . Weird as a lot of times with big guys (6'4+) here Rob comes up higher than he should on their head. Obviously there may be room for someone to adjust but even so if this guy went full on military posture no way would Rob not go above his chin
Lorne said on 9/Jan/14
But Remember Baba, this guy has a very large head, and Rob is a tad over 5'8. With that said, I don't see 6'6 either, but I doubt he'd be less than 196. Rob, you said he can look 6'5 range, and he certainly doesn't look taller than the 196cm challenger, 6ft5.5's closer, IMHO.
[Editor Rob: he looks pretty similar in person to the challenger but he has more of a solid 10 inch head than the challenger.]
Barry 178 said on 8/Jan/14
Assuming it is about 8 inches from Rory's lower lip to the top of his head he "only" looks to have 8-8.5 inches on Rob here, which would put him in the 6-4 to 6-4.5 range, was it possible he was slouching? Granted his head might be 10-10.5 inches but I don't seem him taller than 6-4.5
Ali Baba said on 7/Jan/14
Yes. He seems to look 6'4" with Rob. Could be a tad over that, but does not look the 6'6"listening, or even 6'5" to me.
avi said on 6/Jan/14
@Rob

If his head is 10.5 let's say could be 10.2 of course, you come about 2 inches above chin right to his lip. Wouldn't this be like a 8.5 difference at worst?? So 6'4.5? I think he's 6'5 but the numbers don't add. You come well above his chin. Plus you can stand a tad straighter too!

@Ali baba

That's too low . Are you saying you agree he's 6'4ish? Its not that crazy I guess as Rob seemed to be 8.5 shorter. I think 6'5 is right.
Balrog said on 6/Jan/14
I gotta say he looks way different here than in Game of Thrones!
Lillo thomas said on 6/Jan/14
He looks 6'4 max in both pics. I don't see 9-10 inches between rob and rory. Is tough to see the guy taller than 6'4.5 based in both pics.
Tim said on 6/Jan/14
6 ft 4.25 is my guess
Pleb said on 6/Jan/14
To be honest the only worthy thing of Braveheart is the moving music and therefore I would consider a success. Thankfully I can enjoy the soundtrack without watching Mel Gibson flash his hairy thighs.
Mathew said on 6/Jan/14
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Jan/14
Dude looks barely 6ft4.

---

Yeah the more I look at it the more he looks 6'4". Maybe 6'4.5" at most. But I'm guessing he'd measure a bit taller.
Ali Baba said on 5/Jan/14
I agree with Rampage on this one.
Balrog said on 5/Jan/14
Rampage, look Rob next to McPartlin, listed at 6'4.5'' looks very similar to McCann next to Rob, I see 6'5'' on McCann not sure on the extra half inch but don't know if Rob has footwear advantage?
James said on 5/Jan/14
Yeah he does not look 6'5.5 with rob. Did you have bigger shoes than him rob?
[Editor Rob: there wasn't much shoe difference, I do think his head is a little over 10 inches.]
Pleb said on 5/Jan/14
@maximus You may have investment in Paramount Pictures or 20th Century Fox, I certainly don't. In fact I found Braveheart to be quiet a bore contrary to what the media tried to drum in me. To each his own.
dmeyer said on 5/Jan/14
The top head Is at mouth about 8" taller 6'4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/14
Dude looks barely 6ft4.
Balrog said on 4/Jan/14
Comparing him with Ryan McPartlin he does seems an inch taller next to Rob, 6'5" is possible too.
Tommo said on 4/Jan/14
No way he looks 6'3, doesn't look 6'6 either though. Would he edge out challenger 15 do you think Rob?
maximus said on 4/Jan/14
We got Mel Gibson for William Wallace and it became a huge success despite Mel being shorter than the claimed height of the original Wallace something like 6'5" to 7'....some actors are just made to play the role...like Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 4/Jan/14
His head does look 10.5 inch range and because of that he looks at least 6'5.
avi said on 3/Jan/14
A 6ft man would probably reach his eye line area maybe close to eyebrows so 6'5.2 is probable
Luke Skywalker said on 3/Jan/14
He Looks 6'3" beside Rob.
[Editor Rob: well he's not quite that short!]
Pleb said on 2/Jan/14
I would imagine this is the impression William Wallace would had given, instead we got Mel Gibson.
Kyuss said on 2/Jan/14
6.5 imo
Connor 184cm said on 2/Jan/14
Id say he's 197cm barefeet, the full 6ft 6 with shoes on is probable would you agree rob?
Sam said on 2/Jan/14
Definitely looks close to 6'5" even here. He looks close to my height (although he's got a stockier build and a lot more hair LOL) not 6'6". Next to Joffrey, et al. on GOT he often gives the impression of 6'5" range as well, not taller. Thought he was 6'6" or bigger back in Hot Fuzz.
berta said on 2/Jan/14
hi rob have you seen the swedish original of the movie " the girl with the dragon tatoo" , the millenium movies?. How tall do you think the actor that plays the big evil guy is? I have reagf 198 and 199 and in an interview they said he was 2 meter. Thanks
Frank said on 2/Jan/14
Easyly 6´5" and perhaps 6´6" in a very good day ;)
yalo said on 1/Jan/14
rob 6'5.5 is spot on!
avi said on 1/Jan/14
@Rob
One thing that always seems to puzzle me...if his head is around 10.5 long, and you are 9.5 shorter than him why do come well above his chin? You come like 2.5 inches above it. And let's say there's a slight margin of error so 2 inches. Wouldn't he be more 6'4.5? I think he's 6'5 but I'm just wondering.
Mathew said on 1/Jan/14
He looks 6'4.5", maybe 6'5" in the photos. However I can believe 6'5.5". The full 6'6" seems unlikely though.
Tim said on 1/Jan/14
Gave a 6'4.5" impression when i saw the pic
James said on 1/Jan/14
Rob looks like u have met Bigfoot :)
sigge said on 1/Jan/14
Doesnt look 6'6 to me. A solid 6'5.
Tommo said on 16/Dec/13
Rob did you get a photo when you saw him? And if not do you think you'll get a chance to at a future con? Always looks massive, saw photos of him and Jason Momoa at a comic con in Florida and he looked easy 2 inches taller, if not more.
[Editor Rob: yes, but they have gone awol somewhere in the house before scanning them!]
arbroath said on 2/Sep/13
I know rory, he's 6'6" for def's as my brother is smaller than him and my bro is 6'5". I knew rory when he was 4'2" so he's just a bit taller now
cd said on 16/Jul/13
Rob how come he's still listed as 6ft 6 if you think he's more 6ft 5?
[Editor Rob: he can look 6ft 5-6 range but could measure 6ft 6.]
Ngrganto said on 4/Jun/12
In some scenes he looks like he's not even a full head taller than jack gleeson ( 170cm , 5'7 ) which would make him like in 6'2-6'3 range , i know he's not that short it must be just the angles of camera or something. Think he's 198cm ( 6'6 ) on the spot probably drops to 197 ( 6'5.5 ) at night.
[Editor Rob: I did see Rory earlier this year. I believe he's a 6ft 5 range guy.]

Rory and Conan make me feel like I need to be taller... And I'm 195.5 in the morning with my tennis shoes. I wish I ate Porage Oats when I was growing up! Honestly, McCann is my ideal height. Not TOO tall if you've got the build for it!

I bet Conan makes Rory wish he was 7 feet!

Doesn't look THAT short next to Conan Stevens in 'Game of Thrones' - Stevens is 7'. Guy is definitely 6'6.
SOPHIE said on 23/Sep/07
I saw Rory in Starbucks - Glasgow, 5 years ago (not usually starstruck but he made an impression). Rory IS really tall , my husband is 6 foot 2 and Rory is definitely taller and may I say ;-)even better looking than on tv...
Rastus said on 14/Nov/06
Yes, saw this guy playing golf a couple of months ago and he's definitely this height. He's also so brawny that he looks quite chunky on his own, then he stands beside someone else and you realise just how big he is.
