Scott Glenn looked the full 6’ in The Silence of the Lambs. He played a nice part, and was encouraging and full of respect for Jodie Foster’s Clarice Starling. He made a sensible choice in selecting her for the stomach-churning task.

6ft peak and 5ft11.5 for today’s height.

5’11.75” prime

He’s currently 5’10.5”. I’m 5’10.25” and body doubled for him in 2018. With wardrobe boots he was probably just shy of the 6’ mark, but would often hunch over a bit as the other actors on set were all 5’8” and under. His lean frame reads very tall on camera though, exaggerating his apparent height.

he is 81 years old. i think he probably is closer to 5´10 today.

Could Urban Cowboy be added in his list of roles? Since Urban Cowboy was shot in 1979 that could be a good angle to look at peak height. Scott looked very similar in height to a peak John Travolta.

Listing is spot on, he edged Charlie Cox a few cm’s.

181 in daredevil. 182 in younger days.
berta said on 11/May/17
at peak he could have been 6 foot but i believe he was probably 3 -4 mm under it rather than over. today i dont believe he is taller than 181

Rob, is it possible he may have been a fraction under 6ft in his prime?
Editor Rob
been a while since I seen anything early for Scott.

Looks only a shade taller than the 5'10" Charlie Cox on Daredevil. I think Glenn's in the weak 5'11 range today, 179-180cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/16
Probably not over 5ft11 today

In this picture from 'Silverado,' Scott looks much shorter than 185 cm tall Kevin Costner.
He is at least 5 cm shorter than Kevin.

Oh and Urban Cowboy

Rob, could you The Hunt For Red October to that list?
Sam said on 12/Dec/14
Rob, could you update his credits as follows? "American actor best known for roles in Apocalypse Now, The Keep, Personal Best, The Right Stuff, Backdraft, The Silence of the Lambs, Vertical Limit, Training Day, The Bourne Ultimatum and on TV in The Leftovers".

Interesting actor w/ an interesting career even though its somewhat sporadic, I think I read he has a reputation for being difficult. In The Leftovers can look more a flat 5'11" these days. However, don't know & impressed at how he maintains his wiry muscular physique to this day.

He had two inches easy on Lou Diamond Phillips in Extreme Justice. He was taller then Lou in every shot. Either Scott is taller, or Lou is shorter. You have them both listed as 5'11.5"
Editor Rob
not sure about 2 inches but yeah he could look an inch taller, I think Glenn has shrunk a bit
Arch Stanton said on 10/Oct/13
Yeah he looks about 6 ft in Silence of the Lambs. Creepy looking guy.
Daii said on 11/Oct/08
He looked slightly shorter than 6'0 denzel washington in Training Day, 5'11.5 sounds right

Glenn is about 6' , maybe slightly less. Very close to Travolta. But watch out, he is a real "tough guy". At least he thinks so.
Glenn said on 21/May/06
He did a play out here in 1998 I wasnt aware of.I bumped into him near the friends said he was a dick at the play too.
Glenn said on 16/May/06

Scott Glenn is slightly but clearly taller than 5'11" Alec Baldwin in "The Hunt for Red October" and shorter than Sean Connery. We saw Scott Glenn in "Training Day" (together with 6'0" Denzel Washington). He wasn´t an inch shorter than Denzel.

Scott Glenn is about 5'11.5" - 6'0".
