Surprised he doesn't claim 6ft6...

Looks giant next to ~6’1 Jeffrey Dean on the walking dead, then again he was wearing boots the entire time. I’d say 6’4.5 barefoot, about 6’5.5 in shoes.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/May/22
He’s also in Saving Private Ryan. There are lots of super tall guys in this, including Ted Danson.

It's hardly surprising Ryan towers over Patricia Arquette's Allison DuBois - he's in excess of 6ft4, and even taller than Allison's 'husband', the 6ft1+ Jake Weber, who always looks so huge!

I'm watching the 8th Episode of Season 1 and there's a lot of humour coming up!


6ft4.5 😉👍

Weirdly this guy didn’t look that big back in Remember the Titans as a cleancut football player, I would’ve thought 6’4” from that. I didn’t watch SOA but have seen him here and there in other parts consistently with the unkempt, dirty biker look always recently and was wondering if wearing big biker boots at times can give him an even bigger look that fools people to see him as over listing.
Terry said on 30/Dec/21
Ryan Hurst is huge. He looked massive in SOA, probably the tallest guy in the club. 6'5 easily.
David Tang said on 16/Dec/21
honestly, this guy could easily pass for 6'6. considering all the height inflation these days, no one would doubt his claim of 6'5.5 or 6'6.
Robbe said on 30/Oct/21
That guy in the middle with Ryan and Charlie is 6ft. On the left he is with 6'11 Joonas Suotamo.

Ryan looks 6'4 range there. Charlie looks surprisingle short, only 5'11.
Roby Italy said on 29/Oct/21
Very big guy. 6'4 for 220 lbs minimum. In my opinion
MichaelMyers said on 15/Sep/21
He looked 6'5" peak to me. Nowadays probably more like 6'4.5", or close to it.
David Tang said on 12/Sep/21
rob who'd you think is taller him or eli manning?
Editor Rob
I think Ryan would probably appear taller in person due to his thick boots he wears, I doubt anybody guessed him under 6ft 5 up close when he wears them.
Canson said on 15/Aug/21
@Rampage: agreed. 1” shoe and could be close to an afternoon height. Maybe he dips to 6’4.25 or 3/8
Andrea said on 13/Aug/21
You still have that "Aphantasia" problem, Rob?
In the meanwhile here is a pic of him with Titus Welliver, suggesting that that he wears LIFTS 😱😱😱: Click Here
Editor Rob
You know he does have a bit of a funny waddle in person
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/21
Can look 5in taller than Hunnam
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/21
Chaos, more likely a regular shoe claim.
Incognito324 said on 21/Apr/21
He maked Norman Reedus a dwarf! Click Here
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 21/Feb/21
I assume his claim is from getting 6’5.25 in the morning and rounding it up
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/20
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
pov said on 8/Feb/20
I thought he was 6”5 atleast, looks a lot taller than 6”1 jeffery dean morgan on the walking dead
5ft 11 7/8 in said on 5/Feb/20
Add he to the walking dead list
Nik said on 21/Oct/19
He's exceptionally tall!
Hopping hopper said on 11/Sep/19
Looks 6-4.5 definitely.
Jdubbz said on 21/Aug/19
@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 didn’t mean it that way man. I meant to say that at that size why would he claim 6’5.5. Even if I were say 6’2.5 or 6’3 especially I would be content myself and wouldn’t need to be any taller but maybe that’s just me. I would be okay being 6’0” and accept it. Even if say 5’11” maybe I would have temptation to claim 6’0” but I just don’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.
Hopping hopper said on 10/Aug/19
6-4 min. Probably close to 6-5 imo.

Editor Rob
That looks interesting.
Andrea said on 11/Jul/19
Did you meet him, Rob? Pic or it didn't happen! 😜
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 😏
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/19
Rob, is the full 6ft5 on the table for debate?

Just curious to get your take. I’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
I’ve never gotten Why anyone that size wants to be taller than they are. At 193-194 I surely wouldn’t want to be 197. Don’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.
Usu?rio de drogas said on 11/Mar/19
1,93 and ready!
Andrea said on 7/Dec/18
Here he is with Michael Rosenbaum and a few other people that Rob has met: Click Here
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 6’5, the strong 6’4 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 isn’t quite 6ft4 anymore
Canson said on 21/Jul/18
@Junior: he actually looks taller than that with Morse. Morse is not 6’4” today but 6’5.5-6’6 would mean Morse is close to 6’3” if not right at (if above only by a hair)

Click Here
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 he’s not wearing the boot but I think otherwise he almost always look 6’4” or maybe 6’4.25. He would be around 6’5.5 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 6’4.5 for sure but not 6’5.5. He would measure 6’4.5 even if it’s not a low. Even a low I would say 6’4.25 is probably about it. Probably no shorter than I am. I’m 6’4.25 some days 6’4.3 at a low (6’5-6’5 1/8 out of bed)
MrTBlack said on 18/Jun/18

Looking back I think 6’5” is pushing it but I don’t think 6’4.25-5” 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 SOA…
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.
