I'm 5'10" max. He is shorter than me! I know that for a fact because we stood side by side talking to each other for a good 3 minutes at a convenience store back in 1995 (after Vanishing Son's last season). We also agreed that I had in by at least 1/2 inch in height!

Response: If your story is true then Russell is about 5-9 1/2 barefoot, which is still taller than average. I always thought that he was 6 foot with shoes, not barefoot. At 5-9 1/2ish Wong would be about 5-11 with dress shoes, close enough to call himself a 6 footer IMO. He could pass as 100% Chinese, for example in Joyluck Club, though he is only half. Too bad my brother never became an A-list actor, though I think he definitely should have.

I mean peak a full 6'0 1/2. Now still holding 1/4 over 6'0 with solid 189cm Brandon Routh.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Apr/19
I would believe he is a full 6'0.5" Click Here Russell doesn't look over 2" shorter than legit 6'2.5" Brandon Routh.

In Romeo Must Die, I saw Russell Wong is just taller than Jet Li who is solid 5'6" (168 cm). I guess his height is around 5'10" (178 cm)
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Jun/18
One point is Russell turn 55 now could have lost a fraction. 183.5cm min i wouldn't argue lower.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/May/18
This is one under listed listing here. I always thought 6'0.75" for Russell Wong. But the more i thought that high i guess 6'0.5" thats how he look in the min range.

By reading those old comments, they all guess him at 6'0.5-6'1".
His IMDB resume listed him 6'1" and I also heard Mario describing him 6'1".

Maybe Give him the 184 peak, Rob?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure I'd list him much over six foot, I've not seen enough to think 184 was closer yet.

This is another very tall looking 6ft guy who can be mistaken for 6ft2-3 when standing with much shorter actors.
Redwing said on 20/Feb/17
He looks 184-5 cm tall
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/16
He might to boost this guy.
Damian said on 22/Apr/16
I think he was 6ft1.5 in his prime. Now he's about 6ft1 now, no less or more.
He was listed between 6ft5-6ft1.

He's from a show called "Black sash" with Russell Wong and Missy Peregrym, and also had a minor part in Smallville. He can look 181 range with a lot of people and can look a good inch on Tom Sizemore, 182 is possible aswell. He's listed 5'11" and 6'1" on most sites, but i think anywhere between 5’11-11.5” range fits him better.

Do you Agree?
Editor Rob: not seen much of him, would need to view some stuff he's been in to get a sense.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/14
Yeah, he could look really 184-185cm range in Romeo Must Die and New Jack City.

I saw him in Zuma Beach 2 weeks barefoot with other Asians. He surprisingly looked 6'1. No kidding because the other Asians range from 5'10 - 6'2. Tall for Asians. I was friends with one of the Asians and was introduced to Wong. I'm a honest 5"11 barefoot and Wong was definitely two inches taller barefoot.
Mr.realityortruth said on 27/Dec/12
not really. i saw him on a night show,interviewing asians. His legs were the legs of a 6-2 guy. 6-1.5 barefoot is more percise.
muta said on 6/Feb/11
this guy is definitely at least 6 foot tall but I would say he is closer to 6'1"
muta said on 25/Jun/09
There is no way Russell is shorter that 6 foot... He is 6'0'' at the least....

Who cares. he is gorgeous and his height only adds to his appeal.
Hugh said on 24/Jan/09
6ft? I'm very suprised. He looked really tall in Romeo must Die. I'd have said 6ft2-3.
Authority said on 23/May/08
Russell is 6'1" in Romeo Must Die as he's the same height as Isiah Washington in the scene where they walk past the metal detector in the airport.
muta said on 27/Apr/08
I think Russell is 6'1''
myspace celebrity said on 20/Nov/07
yup, clearly 6'0 tall in romeo must die =)
Rocky said on 31/Jul/07
Perhaps time for an upgrade to around 6'0.25'' is necessary since everyone here estimates 6'0.5'' to 6'1'' while anyone has yet to list anything lower. Also, there's no way Samuel L. Jackson looks 2.5-3 inches taller in this pic, maybe 1.5 I would reasonably guess: Click Here
Shane said on 22/Apr/07
I worked with him, he is definately at least 6'0" and probably closer to 6'1" if he stands up straight. What Ronny said might be true, I know a lot of guys over six feet that round down.
Ronny D said on 26/Feb/07
I've played poker with him and hung out with him a bit. He's at least 6ft because he looks even taller than that in person. Is it possible someone rounds down? 6'0.5" at least I'd say and would even guess 6'1"...
Padraig said on 7/Nov/06
In 1995 Mario Van Peebles described him "So when Russell (Wong) came in at 6-foot-1, great-looking and not a buffoon"
muta said on 6/May/06
Russell Wong will tell you he is 6'0" but he looked exactly the same heigth as Isiah Washington in Romeo Must Die who is 6'1". Russell could be a little over 6 foot or he could be 6'1" but he says he is 6 feet so I will go with what he says.

40's aren't old, but aging is similar but different for each individual person.

I think Russell may be a very strong 6', I would say he looks 6'1" more often than 6'. He is probably closer to 6'1" than 6'.

Anonymous, since when did the forties get to be "old"? (Not that I care...given that I am "thirtyish" myself!)
Anonymous said on 26/Feb/06
That's because he is old. He's in his forties, now.... But yes, 6 feet even sounds perfectly right.
gdawg said on 22/Feb/06
Russell Wong used to go to my gym (Powerhouse gym in West Los Angeles). A few times I've lifted weights near him. He's a pretty tall guy...I'd say 6'0" to 6'1". He looks older in person.
J-Dog. said on 21/Feb/06
Definitely looks at least 6'.
