How tall is Sonny Landham

Sonny Landham's Height

6ft 2.5in (189.2 cm)

American Actor, best remembered for roles in films like Predator, Lock Up, 48hrs. This photo (by Malcolm) was at a 2009 Collectormania event. Sonny once gave his height in an interview as being "6ft 4", when I met him he looked more 6ft 1 range that day, obviously having lost height by late 60's.

I can believe he was once near 6ft3

So upsetting to read in tung88's comment (from 13th June), how Sonny Landham lived out his final days.
He'll be in a way better place now.
RIP Sonny xxx

I am putting 6ft3.25 as his peak height.

RIP. I think he could've been 6'3 at his peak.

Poor Sonny -- dude is now homeless, living in a Holiday Inn, with both his legs amputated after a really bad recent accident (wife left him afterwards).

As for Landham's height? Yeah, I'd guess a strong 6-2, weak 6-3 would be about right (before his multiple series of serious accidents).

Is he half white and half native american? He have the unique looks but 6'0 nowadays a shout
Editor Rob: I don't know his ethnic heritage, but he certainly has a strong personality in person, I'm sure he didn't put up with other people's crap through the years.
Pierre said on 15/Feb/17
He's about 6"0' by this picture imo
berta said on 7/Feb/17
what about giving him 6 foot 2 peak and 6 foot today? he is nowhere 185 these days
richie said on 2/Feb/17
Landham was very tall during the 80's, pushing 6'3" but has definitely lost height as most people do at some stage and would put him around 6'1" today
Marquis said on 19/Nov/16
Only seeing about 4" of height difference between him and Rob in the photo, so Sonny looks 6'0" nowadays. His large head makes him look imposing, though.

Would put him at 6'1" peak. He didn't really look any taller than Arnold in Predator (who was about 6'1" too, despite claiming more), or like a very big guy in general.

Dunno he looked way taller than all on predator.
Also very tall on 48 hrs didnt see any of his porn unfortunately likely his prime..
Still looked way over 6ft in the 90s and he had already gained 20 or so pounds.
berta said on 14/Oct/16
he didnt really look taller than Arnold. i Think around 188 is good funny to claim 2 inches taller than they are :p
ilovetallwomen said on 30/May/16
People do lose height. Like I've been the same height with my friend for ages, it's only recently, when I've turned 30 that I've edged him, clearly. Hard to imagine a 30 year old gaining height. So I do believe Sonny lost height. He looked every inch like a guy who's 6'4 in the 80's
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16
The way I saw it in Predator...

Sonny Landham - 6ft2½(189cm)
Arnold Schwarzenegger - 6ft1¾(187cm)
Carl Weathers - 6ft1½(187cm)

All 3 of these guys didn't look too far off one another. Schwarzenegger and Weathers both looked near 6ft2 in the 80's...
Jim Hopper said on 12/Sep/15
Arnie/Weathers 6-0.5" Sonny 6-2". Peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/15
Rob, was he taller than Arnold?
[Editor Rob: I think a peak Sonny was taller.]
Mon said on 18/Jul/15
He had a serious car accident a few years ago that cost him inches of height. Not insane to think he was once over 6'3'' if he had an early peak. His youth was spent in a biz where people get worn out fast, and was pushing 40 years old by the time he got mainstream work, but in his 30's during the earlier career he looked around 6'3'' beside 5'10'' Marlene Willoughby.
Modeus said on 28/Jun/15
6 ft 4 even at his peak is insane
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Oct/14
189-190cm peak
Vibram said on 26/Jul/14
I'd say quite possible 190cm peak (6ft3) looking at 48hrs.
Looking 12cm taller than rob here, so 186cm today (6ft1.25).
tony said on 18/Jul/14
Such a massive head!
kyuss said on 28/Jun/14
Like Arnie his height was exaggerated too. 6-2.5" peak not 6-4". Take approx 1.5" off him and arnie in the real world.
Dave said on 19/May/14
In 48hrs a highway patrolman at the start says 'tall 6-4 200lbs' i do believe he was 6-4 in his day it is definitely possible to lose several inches in height if you have certain habits throughout your life ie excessive alcohol consumption, poor posture, excessive weight training using bad technique

How come i am 6ft 1 1/2 and my eye level is 5ft 11?


You're tilting your head upwards.
LG69 said on 17/Nov/13
He's very close to 6'1".

looks 184 now
188 peak i think
Sam said on 22/Apr/13
They appear to be on a natural incline favoring Landham in Sam89's photo. On the same footing, I'm pretty sure Bill Duke would have an inch or two over Landham. The three tallest in the "platoon": Duke, Ventura and then Landham.
Sam89 said on 18/Apr/13
peak 188cm max
now 185cm

Looks like hes giving you some casino money to play the slots.
KC said on 26/Oct/12
saw this guy way back in the day in KC (he used to own a comedy club there). he was at least an inch taller than my buddy who's 6'2". i wouldn't doubt 6'3.5" or 6'4" peak.
tom said on 27/Aug/12
6-3 0r 6-2 peak,nowadays 6-1 or 6-0 next to rob.
Hob said on 28/Jul/12
he lost too much height. maybe 6'4 in shoe peak so 189-190 barefeet and 6'1 now
wingnut said on 27/Jan/12
I reckon he was 6'4" in his younger days.
He looked it in 48 hrs and Predator
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 24/Jan/12
What an idiot, claiming 6ft 4.
Ajax said on 30/Dec/11
He was stated at 6'4" in 48hrs in the beginning of the film
Lenad is sexy said on 5/Dec/11
looks 182cm with bad posture. Up straight i can buy 184cm. I dont know where the the 6ft4 claims come from
Voiceless dental fricative said on 11/Aug/11
Proof that even guys at desirable, or more than desirable heights still engage in some pretty outrageous height lying.
Tea said on 30/Jul/11
6'4" 200lbs is still pretty big though is'nt it?
Dave said on 26/Jul/11
Its weird in Predator,best of the best 2 and 48 hours he did indeed look all of 6'4" he had a little muscle though, i think everyone thought he was huge but he was barely over 200lbs. Hes like Nick Nolte who has a big head and broad shoulders giving the impression hes big but is in actual fact quite skinny with little muscle mass.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/11
Looks 6ft0.5-6ft0.75
Lenad is sexy said on 11/Jun/11
Up straight I can see 4-4.5 inches taller than Rob
James said on 30/May/11
He looks very young for his age but still he has lost slighty more than the average man would at age 70.

Maybe his heavy weight has made him lose slight more than he should have?

Peak 6'2.5 (189cm)
Today 6'0.5 (184cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/11
A 6ft2.5 guy claiming 6ft4 would be caught out
linke said on 11/May/11
* retarded not retreated *
linke said on 5/May/11
6'4 claim aint that bad.I mean the guy was 6'2-6'3 at his peak and was in great shape,pretty common for 6'2-3 guys saying 6'4.But now that he's 70 and dropped couple of inches,certainly makes the claim look retreated.
Imagine bieber shrunken to 5'2" at the age of 80,saying that he's 5'
T said on 5/May/11
Come-on he's taller than 6 foot
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/May/11
His 6"4 claims aren't just lies but they also have a level of arrogance about them...similiar to Kane Hodders pathetic 6"5 claims...purely driven by ego
T said on 1/May/11
in 48 hours the prison guard says he's 6'4 and in that film he looks it also he was very well built which could give the impression of him being shorter
Johan Cruyff said on 30/Apr/11
Sonny Landham's heights are:

Morning (out of bed)= 6'2.5" (1.89,2 m)
After 1,5-3 hrs= 6'2.1" (1.88,2 m)
After 5-10 hrs= 6'1.75" (1.87,2 m)

Today. he's clearly a solid 6'0.75"-6'1" (1.85 m), as rob said!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/11
185cm(6"0.75) with good posture
Lenad is sexy said on 21/Apr/11
I'd say 184cm now up straight
James said on 8/Apr/11
Yeah maybe 184cm if he stood better with rob
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/11
Near 6ft4 in shoes back in the day probably...

He looks 6ft with Rob...upstraight 6ft0.5-6ft0.75?
James said on 22/Mar/11
Amusing him claiming 6'4 cuase with rob he looks 6ft tops.
tom said on 11/Mar/11
In 48 hours he looked 6'4" to me no problem.
T.J. said on 10/Mar/11
Still in the 6'2" range with good posture
Matt said on 27/Feb/11
Even in Predator I wouldn't give him more than 6' 2.5'', here he doesn't even look 6' 1''
James said on 15/Feb/11
Well if he really was 6'2.5 at his peak then i guess he would not sound completely stupid claiming 6'4 even though he was nowhere near it. With rob if anything he looks 182cm. Maybe 6'1 if he stood better?
Lenad is sexy said on 17/Jan/11
Looks 6'0-ish today. where the hell did the 6'4 claim come from?!!
Matt said on 22/Nov/10
come on rob, how can you say 6ft 1? we both know that 6ft 1 eye level is above your scalp which it is clearly not, in reality 5ft11.5 - 6ft 0 maximum.
Matt said on 27/Oct/10
He didn't look much taller than Schwarzenegger in Predator. Prolly a weak 6' 2'', maybe a little over. He def looks like he lost height, I don't even think he looks 6' 1'' here, 6' tops today. Thats what bodybuilding will do to ya I guess.
