Chaos, more likely a regular shoe claim.

I assume his claim is from getting 6โ€™5.25 in the morning and rounding it up

Ryan stars as Michael Benoit, (another French name), the half-brother of Patricia Arquette's Allison Dubois, in 'Medium'.

He's a staggering 15 inches taller than Patricia, who fits neatly under Ryan's chin in high heels when they hug.

Allison has had an unnerving dream that her soldier brother has been killed, and contacts the authorities to check if there have been any Army tragedies of late - and she does this at 5 o'clock in the morning.

Soon enough, Michael and his much shorter soldier mate turn up at the Dubois household and Allison can't believe it, she is so elated to see him. She soon finds out that her psychic gift has been passed on to her younger brother. He drinks to blot it out, not unlike Allison did before she started putting her powers to crime-cracking good use. This episode is not without its fair share of humour, which is so welcome in such a serious and often upsetting drama. Allison's two school-age little girls ask their Uncle to come along and see their school, so he accompanies Allison and her daughters on the school run. The kids are dropped off safely and then we suddenly see Michael produce Allison's tot's kiddie's drinking mug. "Is that beer in Brigitte's cup?" Allison barks at her brother! "Get rid of it!" He does, gulping it down in a couple of glugs and burping afterwards! ๐Ÿคญ

Later in the day, Allison arrives home from picking up the schoolgirls to find her brother and his mate drinking on the patio, having left a loud porno film on the family TV, and understandably, Allison gives him a roasting, which looks really funny because of the size difference. ๐Ÿ“บ

To cut a long story short, Allison teaches Michael to accept his gift, and he braves going to the funeral of a soldier, whose death he feels responsible for, but isn't.

The episode ends when Michael boards the coach home, waving goodbye to his sister. We then see the ghost of the dead soldier saluting Michael, who is very moved, as are the viewers...

Ryan gets 6ft4.5. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฎ

Very good chance Jeff is still a bit over 6ft1. I believe that over Ryan being under 6ft4
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jun/20
Strange that Hurst look 3" on Jeffrey Dean Morgan but with boots advantage look 2" on David Morse. 6'5 is possible.
BabyAlec said on 29/Jun/20
Yeah rob idk, as you can see Click Here
He looks only 6 or 6.5cm (about 2.4 inches) taller than jeffrey who's 1.86m at best. What do you think?
I call 192-1.93m(6'3.6/6'4).
Editor Rob
He looks about 3 inches taller there.

On Walking Dead, sometimes Jeffrey could pass for nearly 6ft 2 himself!

Matt6'5 said on 28/Jun/20
Would you really put .5ins between Ryan and Jared Padalecki?
Tall Sam said on 14/Jun/20
I'd say Hurst certainly has a footwear advantage and is younger and able to straighten up more successfully than Morse, in addition to being naturally slightly taller.
Vexacus said on 14/Jun/20
Saw him in The Walking Dead recently, this Guy is extremelly tall , 6'5 for sure.

I am confuse now. Ryan look to be 6'5 1/2-6'6 with 6'3 1/2 David Morse. Their footwear isn't much difference over 1/4. Rob need to convince me if Ryan wear lift i would still believe he is a little under listed.
Editor Rob
If Hurst is in a decent boot, he could have a good 1/2 to 3/4 footwear advantage.
Chinybobs said on 24/May/20
6-4-6-5. In between those definitely.
Jkiller said on 17/Mar/20
He looks slightly over 6'4, 6'4.25 I'd say is very accurate

Looks 6-4.5 definitely.

@Canson: No need to apologize, you didn't do/say anything wrong. I understand what you meant, that there's no point in inflating yourself by an inch when you're already really tall (and I agree with that).

@Christian: True, but as someone who does enjoy that, it makes a difference. As far as the inconvenience of being 197cm vs 193-194cm, you're right. There's always a tradeoff.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Aug/19
You can still tower guys at 193-194 range. Doesn't have to be over 197. Even if I had the desire to tower guys (which I don't), I'd still choose 193-4 over 197, because I believe that the latter just adds more inconvenience and problems.
Canson said on 18/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: I apologize as I didnโ€™t mean it that way man. I meant to say that at that size why would he claim 6โ€™5.5. Even if I were say 6โ€™2.5 or 6โ€™3 especially I would be content myself and wouldnโ€™t need to be any taller but maybe thatโ€™s just me. I would be okay being 6โ€™0โ€ and accept it. Even if say 5โ€™11โ€ maybe I would have temptation to claim 6โ€™0โ€ but I just donโ€™t see myself doing it especially as height aware as I am
Jdubbz said on 16/Aug/19
@Canson: We've talked about this before and I know your intentions are good, but there is nothing wrong with 197cm range. There's no real benefit to being taller than 6'4 or 194cm aside from certain sports (you could even make the argument that there's no benefit to being taller than 6'2-6'3), but going from 193.7cm - 197-197.5cm over the past 9 months give or take, I haven't noticed any downsides aside from things I was already experiencing at 6'4.25. Having been both 193-194cm and 197cm, I prefer my current height solely because I enjoy being really tall and towering other dudes.

6-4 min. Probably close to 6-5 imo.

That looks interesting.
Andrea said on 11/Jul/19
Did you meet him, Rob? Pic or it didn't happen! ๐Ÿ˜œ
He can definitely pull off looking 6'4.5-6'5 at times, yeah, but that's only when he wears those boots. Which is admittedly very often. He recently had a small role in Bosch, and although there weren't any good scenes to compare him with the rest of the cast, I couldn't help but notice that even there, he was wearing them!
Editor Rob
I believe I met him, but I have Aphantasia so can't quite picture it ๐Ÿ˜
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/19
Rob, is the full 6ft5 on the table for debate?

Just curious to get your take. Iโ€™m not fully convinced of it even though he can pull it off some times...definitely think 194cm is a better shout than 193cm though
Editor Rob
In person Ryan can look 6ft 5, but he usually wears a boot in the 1.4-1.5 range, so 6ft 4.5 range seems likely.
Canson said on 9/Jul/19
Iโ€™ve never gotten Why anyone that size wants to be taller than they are. At 193-194 I surely wouldnโ€™t want to be 197. Donโ€™t get why he would
Alex 6'3.25 said on 8/Jul/19
I never thought he's more than a strong 6'3 or a flat 6'4 honestly. He can't be a 6'5 for sure.
MrTBlack said on 7/Jul/19
@ Rampage

I did initially think 6'4" solid and whilst I don't think he's a full 6'5" or 6'5.5", he towered over 6'2" Kip Pardue and Wood Harris in Remember the Titans so I think he's over 6'4" and maybe just under 6'5"(Towering to me is anything more than 2").
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/19
Weak 6ft5? Certainly not out of the question...his claim is more than likely in shoes though. A flat 6ft4 is too low
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/19
Look over 6'5 with 5'11 1/4 Michael Rosenbaum and Phelps Twins hiding behind him and look like 5'11 guys.

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Nov/18
Maybe Hurst had a little chance being 6'4.75",rob?
Editor Rob
I think that is a figure he can pull off, anywhere over 6ft 4 up to 5 is arguable. He does wear boots though, sometimes that can push a 6ft 4 and change guy to looking nearly 6ft 5 with be fair, he would have been a good guy to get a photo with as he stands pretty well, with friends he looks over 6ft 4 for sure.
Rourke said on 28/Jul/18
never looks close to 6โ€™5, the strong 6โ€™4 range suits him perfectly
Andrea said on 22/Jul/18
Yeah, he can look a decent amount taller than Morse in pics, but if you look at those pics, Ryan is in his usual big boots and he also seems to have an overall better posture than David, who, in any case, although I have seen nothing of him, is probably shorter than his 6'3.5 listing today...
To be honest, I wouldn't have guessed Ryan over 6'4 in the few episodes of SOA I have seen, and I even thought he could have been just 6'3-6'4 at one point, but having seen more pictures, I can certainly see how he can often look comfortably over 6'4, albeit he's in big footwear most of the time. And that's the reason why I still think that there's a good chance he really isn't much over 6'4 barefoot and he called his height in his big boots. When he's not wearing them, he really doesn't look much more than 4 inches taller than Kim Coates, who is very arguably under his 6' listing: Click Here Click Here Click Here A guy like Boris Kodjoe does look easily taller than Ryan next to the same Kim: Click Here
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Jul/18

Maybe either Ryan wore thick footwear or David's not as tall as listed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/18
Junior, boots, posture and also Morse isnโ€™t quite 6ft4 anymore
Canson said on 21/Jul/18
@Junior: he actually looks taller than that with Morse. Morse is not 6โ€™4โ€ today but 6โ€™5.5-6โ€™6 would mean Morse is close to 6โ€™3โ€ if not right at (if above only by a hair)

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Jul/18
Why did he look 6'5 1/2-6'6 with David Morse?
Canson said on 14/Jul/18
That pic above is hard to go by because heโ€™s not wearing the boot but I think otherwise he almost always look 6โ€™4โ€ or maybe 6โ€™4.25. He would be around 6โ€™5.5 in a regular pair of casual boots, basketball sneaks or dress shoes
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Jun/18
Andrea may be right. Ryan's maybe 6'4" but often wears thick footwear.
Canson said on 19/Jun/18
@MrTBlack: I can see 6โ€™4.5 for sure but not 6โ€™5.5. He would measure 6โ€™4.5 even if itโ€™s not a low. Even a low I would say 6โ€™4.25 is probably about it. Probably no shorter than I am. Iโ€™m 6โ€™4.25 some days 6โ€™4.3 at a low (6โ€™5-6โ€™5 1/8 out of bed)
MrTBlack said on 18/Jun/18

Looking back I think 6โ€™5โ€ is pushing it but I donโ€™t think 6โ€™4.25-5โ€ is out of the question.
Bennett said on 2/Feb/18
legit 6ft4 this guy.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 11/Jan/18
Yeah rampage, the guy towered everyone in Spr and soa.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
He doesn't appear this big at first but it's obvious that he is once he stands beside 6ft guys like Hunnam, Perlman, Coates, Flanagan and Hanks...
Redwing said on 14/Dec/17
Why does he look 6'3 on remember the titans?
MrTBlack said on 19/Sep/17
Yeah I always thought 6'5" so I believe the 6'4.5" listing
Andrea said on 13/Aug/17
He does look comfortably taller than Petrie, there. Maybe right around an inch taller. If Alistair is really 191, 194 doesn't seem unreasonable... He can definitely pull off looking over 6'4 in premiere pictures but the "problem" with him is that he often wears big shoes. Even there with that 191 guy it looks like he's wearing his usual big boots. I don't know exactly how much they give but I reckon no less than 1.5 inches? 6'3 flat is too low but I wouldn't have guessed him over 6'4 in the few episodes I've seen of SOA. His claim, if he REALLY measured that mark at one point, must come from a measurement in shoes. The argument, maybe, is how much those "shoes" give. There's a very good chance he measured 6'5.5 in those big boots, IMO, making him no more than about 6'4 barefoot.
Editor Rob
I suppose if the boot was near 1.4-1.5, then a solid 6ft 4 is what he could be barefoot.
Jani said on 11/Aug/17
Rob, if Alastair is 191cm then Hurst would definitely be around 193cm maybe even 194 listed here assuming that Hurst does not have any footwear advantage.
Editor Rob
I think Hurst probably measured 6ft 5.5 in a boot.
Jani said on 5/Aug/17
I don't think Ryan Hurst is quite 194cm. Maybe more like 191cm. No less than 190cm.
Editor Rob
see Hurst with Alastair Petrie...bear in mind Petrie is a big 6ft 3 guy up close.
Slim 181 cm said on 13/Jul/17
Rob, I suggest you make a sons of anarchy page. TBH with the camera angling he doesn't look above 6'2 in the photo.
MaxB said on 25/Apr/17
He also played Chick on Bates Motel. Tall dude.
Andrea said on 10/Apr/17
A very recent photo with that 5'5.5 range guy that you talked about a couple of times: Click Here
He seems to have a quite big head, especially compared to that guy, maybe somewhere in 10 inches range (?) but he certainly doesn't look as tall as a true 6'4.5 guy would be next to a 5'5.5 one, does he?
And OF COURSE Ryan was wearing pretty big shoes at this event: Click Here
Editor Rob
he's got the size of the smaller guy's head+1 inch nearly...I don't know how big his head is, but it could be 10.5 inches.
Andrea said on 8/Apr/17
Even 6'4.5 now, Rob?
To be fair, a guy like Boris Kodjoe did look easily taller than him next to Kim (that generally doesn't look much more than about 4 inches shorter than Ryan in pictures)!!! I really wouldn't have guessed him more than ABOUT 6'4 but I can see how he can look taller than 6'4 flat at times... He does have a decent amount over Aldis, here: Click Here Of course, he also have a noticeable footwear advantage!!!
His claim still is BS, the only way he could have got that mark (if he really got measured that tall at one point) is in big shoes like those he's wearing in that photo! I doubt he's much over 6'4 barefoot...
Editor Rob
I think a bit over 6ft 4 is believable, his claim could be measured in shoes.
Timonsgirl said on 7/Mar/17
I have no problem believing he's 6'5". David Morse is 6'4" and when they stand next to each other on Outsiders Hurst is definitely taller.
Peacegamersd95 said on 11/Jan/17
I know he is 6'4.
berta said on 6/Jan/17
192,5 cm is good for this guy. i actually thought he was strong 6 foot 3 guy. the most i can argue is 193
Canson said on 25/Nov/16
193-194 barefoot 196-197 In shoes maybe
roy said on 12/Nov/16
If he was 6'5 he would be towering everyone. I have a friend that looks the same size and claims 6'5, but after marking a spot on the wall he was only 6'3 1/2. Not sure where he figured the extra 1 and a half inches. Must have been morning height rounded up.
Josh Jeffords said on 27/Oct/16
No way in Dantes hells is he 6 5 .5 looked 6 3 ish in we were soldiers, seemed 6 2 in titans.
Don't remember him before that must be counting that mess of hair.
He and coates are tallest in photos of soa I'd say 6 3.5 and coates 6 and change.
They make hannum and Perlman look 5 11 Irish guy 5 10.
Christian-196cm (6ft5.25) said on 27/Aug/16
If he wants to make himself seem taller than he already is, why don't he just claim 6ft5? Why does he have to add a half inch? It's one thing to see/hear someone exaggerate their height, but it's another to exaggerate AND add a half inch, like they know what they're talking about (which they obviously don't). For example, Ben Affleck. Even if he's just a bit over 6ft2, I'd much rather have him claim 6ft3 or even 6ft4, than 6ft3.5. It kind of irks me when people do that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/16
Probably was near 6ft6 in boots on SOAโ€ฆ
berta said on 14/Jun/16
havens seen so mutch with him but i Think this listing is Little to high looks to be over 6 foot 3 but not over 6 foot 4. i Think halv inch shorter than this maybe 193 at best
Powerhouse said on 29/Sep/15
Not really worth arguing a quarter inch, but i think 6'4 flat is more likely.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Sep/15
Rob, also in Saving Private Ryan
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Sep/15
Wow...strong 6ft4. Wouldn't have guessed it but ok
Andrea said on 23/Sep/15
Rob, can you really see him as tall as Alexander Skarsgard? I doubt it...
Editor Rob
if he stands up tall he can look a decent 6ft 4. He is probably claiming a Boot height.
Andrea said on 3/Sep/15
Seen only a couple of seasons of SOA, but this guy really looks 6'4 at most! His claims is hilarious!
AJ said on 1/Sep/15
You should also add remember the titans to the list.
Editor Rob
yes, also I think he seems like he'd be calling height in boots.
