Sam J Jones Height
6ft 2 ½ (189.2 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 3 (190.5 cm)
American Actor best known for starring in Flash Gordon. More recently he can be seen in the film Ted. These photos are from a Memorabilia event in 2006 and a London Film Convention in 2013. Today, I don't think he's quite 6ft 3.

A lot of people have gone too low!

Met him at a convention this summer. I'm 6'2" and he was slightly shorter. So guessing 6'1.5" now but possibly 6'3" at his peak.

...just saw him, 10 feet away, at a TerrifiCon. 6'2, tops.

World Citizen said on 16/Jun/17
Looks right, no less than 189
Paleman said on 4/May/17
The 6'1"5 claims are ridiculous. Come on, just look at him, he is an easy 6'2". Doesn't look to stand at all shorter than his peak.
S.J.H said on 3/Apr/17
He look close to 6'2 i'll say 6'1.75

6'1.5" With ROb there in the Top pic. Still A fairly wide guy Id Say.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jul/16
I thought he looked near 220lbs in Flash Gordon but he bulked up for it though. He had a similar build to Christopher Reeves. Very tall and lean.
said on 18/Jul/16
Rob, what is your guess on his weight in Flash Gordon and guess on his weight today?
Editor Rob: I read him described as 205 pounds during the early 80's...today he seems 25 pounds more than that.
Kyuss123 said on 18/Jun/16
Saw him today at Rochdale comic con,had a picture and a little chat,fab guy very friendly. . I'm 6-3 in my shoes,hes pretty much bang on same in his shoes which were normal type dress shoes. Legit 6-2".
Rusty 190cm said on 3/Aug/15
Agreed, he looks no more than 6'2.5" in the more recent pic.
Matthew190 said on 28/Jul/15
He looks like he aged noticeably and lost a fraction of height anyways, between the 2006 and 2013 photos. His peak height at 6'3" would appear to be correct.
Rusty 190cm said on 12/Feb/15
By the looks of him compared to 5'8.25" Rob, I would say 6'2.5" is a fair shout. He should be downgraded to that but with 6'3" left as his peak height.
said on 21/Nov/14
Doesnt look too much under peak Rob?. 6-2"+ imo defo.
[Editor Rob: I think today around 189 is possible]
PepsiCola said on 1/Oct/14
Yeah i think he lost height, he also looks much older in top picture.
judd said on 12/Sep/14
does look 6'2 in the top pic!
Realist said on 4/Jul/14
no way does he looks 6'3 more like 6'2.25 or so with Rob, 6'3 and Rob scrapes his lip.
Crash said on 25/Jun/14
He looks to have lost a noticeable amount of height in the 7 years between photos. He looked 6'3" in 2006 but definitely not today.
He looks to have aged a lot in those years too.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 14/Apr/14
Looks no more than 6'2.5 in top pic
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/14
He was around 191-192cm peak, IMO.
Lenad said on 28/Dec/13
looks 189cm max in top pic
avi said on 13/Dec/13
Weak 6'3 6'2.5 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/13
He looks like an elderly Vanilla Ice.
"Peak height was 6ft 3.5in (192cm)"
Looked 6ft4 in Flash Gordon with Timothy Dalton.
Mathew said on 22/Oct/13
I don't doubt that he was 6'3" peak. He still looks a little over 6'2" to me.
the shredder said on 14/Oct/13
Rob , Mark Walberg looks taller than you with him in TED.
said on 13/Oct/13
Rob, if hes clearly dropped to 6'2.5" why don't you make that his current height and 6'3" his peak height
[Editor Rob: apart from Ted he's not really doing much acting these days]
said on 12/Oct/13
He is tilting his head up in the upper photo and looks like he may have dropped to 6'2.5" but a half inch loss is not abnormal for a 60 year old
[Editor Rob: in 2013 I think he's nearer 6ft 2 than 3]
Sam said on 23/Sep/13
Rob, you've got a Brian Blessed photo up there now.
Rusty said on 19/Sep/13
He could likely be 6'2.75" in this photo but if the guy is near 60 he was likely a 6'3" when younger
Greg said on 1/Sep/13
6'3 if you count the hair maybe. Looks 6'2 max
Blaze said on 11/Aug/13
Lo sgozzatore said on 30/Jul/13
For those who say he's 6'4 or even 6'5, thats crazy! I mean, if you count he's much closer to the camera and he has quite big hair, this guy probably is not even a full 6'3. Between 6'2 and 6'3 is ok
said on 29/Jul/13
Rob, maybe 6ft2.75/190cm today?
[Editor Rob: could have dipped to the 190 mark yeah]
G-MANN said on 27/Jun/13
He looked much different to this in Ted, he must have hit the gym hard.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/13
Looked a clear 6ft3.5-6ft4 if Dalton was a full 6ft2
said on 19/Apr/13
Easy 6-3" tad more even rob?
[Editor Rob: I doubt it]
snake said on 4/Apr/13
no way 6'3! 6'4 or 6'4.5 seems exact!
Anonymous said on 30/Mar/13
Every bit 6-3" doesnt look like hes lost any height really at all imo.
Mathew said on 6/Aug/12
Yes he is 6'3". No need for a upgrade or downgrade here.
Hob said on 28/Jul/12
he look a fraction under 190cm.
Ajax said on 26/Jul/12
Challenger 13 is barefoot though. Meaning, he's more than 1/2" taller than him with his shoes on
tom said on 6/Jun/12
Looks a solid 6-3" to me.
said on 17/Jan/12
He was obviously nearer to the camera, this added a few cms to his height. He's 6'3 giving the illusion of being taller.
[Editor Rob: as I said previous comment Compared to challenger 13
, even with Jones Camera advantage (which he definitely had moreso than 13 which is taken 6 feet further away from the Jones shot) and Jones obvious 1-1.25 inch of vertical hair, he's shorter than the 6ft 3.5 guy.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/12
There's 7-8in between Rob and Sam
said on 23/Dec/11
Looks 192.5cm(6"3.75) in the
picture but has better posture
and maybe has a shoe advantage?
[Editor Rob: he's nearer the camera.
although he's still half an inch at least smaller than challenger 13 ;)
LAN Jiao said on 6/Oct/11
6'4 adam baldwin apear same as j jones here.
george555 said on 5/Oct/11
i would say 6'4, he's more than 6'3. he was probably 6'5 at his peak, with the hair he looks 6'6.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/11
Scraping 189cm in the pic, like 188.8cm.
Has very good posture. With the hair probably exceeds the 6ft3 barrier and looks 192cm.
James said on 25/Jun/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/11
I see 6.5-7in between Sam and Rob
James said on 31/May/11
his hair is making him look taller in the photo and he is closer to the camera
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/11
I think 6ft2.75(190cm) is bang on...never got the 6ft4 descriptions though
Mathew said on 17/May/11
LOL @ 6'1.5" in the pic, the top of Rob's head isn't even up to the bridge of his nose. He's 6'3".
rafa said on 16/May/11
LOL some say 6'1" !!" 6'2.75" is the lowest he can look in the pic
Candyman said on 8/May/11
Give it up James. He is clearly over 1.88 and closer to 1.90.
James said on 1/May/11
I think his hairstyle is making him look taller in the photo
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/11
He has good posture in this pic aswell
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Apr/11
189-190cm in the pic
adams1818 said on 9/Apr/11
185 cm? Where you have eyes? if he was 185 rob would reach his eyes and in the picture you can clearly see more difference, 187 is nearly, 189 is possible, 190 seems to be the most correct.
James said on 23/Mar/11
6'1.5 (187cm) in the pic
Sasha said on 6/Mar/11
Sam's head (without hair) ends at 40-th pixel from above. So there are near 70 pixels between Sam and Rob. Rob's head is near 10". So Sam has at most 5,5" over Rob, and hence he is at most 6'1,5" (186 cm) in this photo.
James said on 26/Feb/11
185cm in the photo
James said on 14/Feb/11
looks 6'1 in the pic
Matt said on 29/Nov/10
pretty much 6ft 3, if not verrrrry close nothing under 6ft 2.75
J.J. said on 1/Jul/09
this is what I call towering! 6inches or more still not dwarfing though. Dwarfing will be at the person shoulder or under
Hugh 190cm said on 25/Jun/09
190cm now and 192cm peak.
James said on 28/May/09
Looks 6'2 in the picture, about 6'4 with the hairstyle
Anonymous said on 20/May/09
Must have been 6'4 in his prime. Rob only comes up to the tip of his nose, that's 7+ inches which means he's still 6'3+. He's 54, 30 years past his prime in Flash Gordon
J.J. said on 18/May/09
'BigKing' I agree he looks like he is almost hitting 6'4" . His built looks huge yet he isn't even 6'5". He looks like he overshadowed everyone in this picture. What a BIG looking 6'3" guy
Smart_Waiter said on 22/Dec/08
6'3" and BUILT!
Anonymous said on 5/Oct/08
Hmmm, I had thought he was under 6'3" when I 1st looked, but after lookin again he looks a legit 6'3", he makes rob look like a kid.
Lenad said on 20/Sep/08
Makes Rob look like a shrimp so 6'3 sounds right.
Lenad said on 19/Sep/08
Rob can never reveal his secret identity.
Captain Spaulding said on 17/Sep/08
Looks just a tenth of an inch under 6'3", but I guess you can still say 6'3" :)
matt Thomas said on 17/Sep/08
This in my oppinion along with Kevin Sorbo is what a legit 6'3 guy looks like
Anonymous3 said on 17/Sep/08
definite 190-190.5cm/6ft2 3/4-6ft3 no doubt, look at how massive he is and the difference in height this man is what he is!
Big King said on 9/Sep/08
Sam looks more 192cm on this photo.
Josh said on 29/Jul/08
He looks about 190 cm a bit under 6'3 .
Anonymous said on 21/Nov/07
Probably just about 6'4 in his prime. Maybe down to 6'3+ now, he's 53.
G-MANN said on 21/Nov/07
God this guy's changed since Flash Gordon.
Matt Thomas said on 17/Jun/07
Its probably the spiky ass hair if he looks over 6'3 he really doesnt seem like the kinda guy to care about his height
Anonymous said on 27/May/07
Big 6'3", 6'3 1/2" was about 1 1/2 inch taller than Timothy Dalton in Flash Gordon and he was 6'2". Was probably over 205 lbs in Flash Gordon as a young guy and got really husky later on in life, I bet about 225-230 now.
andy said on 29/Apr/07
probably over 6'3
Viper said on 29/Apr/07
You kinda make a point there OutbenchThis. Same with me, between by chin and nose is 5-6-5-8 at 6-3.
Franco said on 27/Apr/07
looks as tall as 6'4
OutBenchThis said on 27/Apr/07
At 6'3" I usually notice people of the 5'7"-5'8" range the top of their heads between my chin to my mouth in photos..I'd be guessing he is more of a 189cm (without shoes) guy than 191cm considering he appears to have, and as you mentioned, good posture.
Jordan said on 18/Feb/07
Wow he is big and tall, and yeah even Flash gets old. LOL .
Rob he looks like a nice guy, was he?
[Editor Rob: yes, he was pleasant]
Anonymous said on 21/Jan/07
is that flash............no way man.
[Editor Rob: everybody gets old...]
Editor Rob said on 9/Sep/06
1980 Daily Herald mentioned he tried modelling but at "6-foot-3 he was too tall"
Bob said on 24/Jul/06
I seen Sam Jones at the comic con this wkd and he's at least 6'2"-6'3" he's put on some weight over the yrs. Marc Singer there also and he and Sam looked the same exact height.
Editor Rob said on 8/Apr/06
Here is what Flash looks like these days beside whiteout Editor Rob. I showed a few folk the unedited pic and none knew who he was, I guess age takes its toll on us all...
The man does have good posture still and gives the impression of looking more of a genuine 6ft 3 guy than say Ferrigno did...
