@Christian: Barkley's head is only slightly bigger. It's tough to tell exactly because Barkley doesn't have a goatee or anything on his head, but it looks like a 2-3 pixel difference to me. If we assume they actually have the same head size then that'd be a 0.5 to 1 cm advantage, but that could be partially or entirely the actual head size difference. It's not a big difference either way. I'd think Barkley could straighten up at least that much.

Potential mug shot from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department soon?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Aug/18

I agree with you that Barkley's head was closer to the cam than Seagal's. His whole body may have not, but his head was, and that's what made him look a bit taller.


You can tell that Barkley's head looks bigger than Seagal's. It goes to show you that his head was closer to the camera, but not necessarily his whole body. You don't have to have your whole body closer to the camera next to someone to look taller, just your head is enough.
Canson said on 11/Aug/18
@184guy: I agree 100%. That’s a 3cm difference and Barkley is favored. Seagal may be more like 6’3.25 at a low today whereas Barkley 6’4.5. I could easily see a 6’4” Seagal at his peak though
Greg99 said on 11/Aug/18
A big guy, peak of 6'4" seems correct, and not much under that now. Clearly gives the impression in the above image that he doesn't want to be there.
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Aug/18
@Christian: I basically agree on the height difference in the photo, but I don't see a clear camera advantage. There could be one if the camera is on Barkley's side and if it's lower than they are, it would probably favor Barkley, but the opposite is true if it's higher. Barkley's head looks in proportion to me though. Even if I did see a clear camera advantage, I'd hesitate to say how much it added, though you can make a rough estimate of how much height you'll lose with a certain stance. I would generally agree 6'3" flat looked possible, but it looks less plausible if you rotate the photo 4 degrees as Rob said and Rob said he probably wouldn't guess below 191.

@Arch: I agree he could look close to 100 pounds heavier than he did in Above the Law at one point. He even looked significantly heavier in Out for Justice than he had in Above the Law. He's clearly lost quite a bit of weight compared to his heaviest, though, which is good to see.

@Gracian: Seagal's cowboy boots will give him an inch or more advantage over Shaq's sandals and he's much closer to the camera. If you don't account for footwear and camera advantages, you could come away thinking Seagal was only a few inches taller than weak 5'9" Sly Stallone! Click Here
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Aug/18

Barkley does have looser posture than Seagal but Barkley's camera advantage negates that. He has about 1.5" on Seagal but Seagal could very well be 6'3" flat based on the pic with Rob.
Dmeyer said on 10/Aug/18
You could list him 191cm 6 et 3,25
Editor Rob
That might be the lowest I'd have guessed.
Gracian said on 10/Aug/18
Rob, did you see Seagal's photos I sent in a comment a few days ago? He really looked closer 194 cm than 193 so I think he deserves a 1/8 inch upgrade. Please, Rob, please reply to my comment.
Editor Rob
At the moment I am happy with the just over 6ft 4 and 3.5 today listing.
184guy2 said on 9/Aug/18
In the pic Barkley looks 3 cm taller and is leaning , unfortunely we can't see their footwear . Their faces also looks to be side by side , if anything Charles's head could be a bit closer to the cam.
Canson said on 9/Aug/18
@Rising: I’m seeing 1” and Barkley would actually have camera advantage like he does in many pics used on this site. He could be closer to 6’3” like Christian said as well or 6’3.25 but that still doesn’t look much more than 1”
James B 172cm said on 9/Aug/18
Who would be taller a peak Jeff Goldblum or Seagal?
Editor Rob
Arguably you could put both in the same zone.
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Aug/18
@Canson: I don't see that. Barkley looks at least 1.5" even with loose posture: Click Here Look at the difference between the top of their heads, but Barkley also looks to be slouching more.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/18
Looks around 6'3" flat though.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Aug/18
"Well he certainly is a lot more bulkier in his 60's than 30's, probably 4 stones heavier. It may have contributed a little bit to some loss."

4 stone, 56 pounds? If you compared him in around 2008 to 1988's Above the Law when he's have been 36 or 37 I'd have said nearer 7 stone gain, he looked near 100 pounds heavier at one point. Today he seems to have lost some weight from a few years back when he was massive, probably for health reasons, so may he is more 4 stone heavier than he was in his 30s today.
Editor Rob
Yes, in person today I'd estimate 4 stones heavier, but his absolute heaviest may well have been a couple of stone more than 2018 weight.
Canson said on 9/Aug/18
So looking at him with Charles Barkley, it proves the point that Barkley isn’t more than maybe 194cm range
Peterson188cm said on 8/Aug/18
Peak: 193.6cm
Today: 192.0cm
Joe257 said on 8/Aug/18
I would Say about 6'3" Flat in the Picture above for Steven Seagal (if He Stood Straight), Certainly a Strong 6'4" in His Youth, more like 6'4.5" or So [although the often-worn Big Black Cowboy Boots throw most Estimations Off].

Rob, do You Think that Steven Seagal's Noticeable Weight Gain Contributed to His Height Disparity; making Him Look Taller in His Youth (when Thinner), and Shorter Now (when Fatter)!?
Editor Rob
Well he certainly is a lot more bulkier in his 60's than 30's, probably 4 stones heavier. It may have contributed a little bit to some loss.

Paddy said on 8/Aug/18
I am absolutely confused by everyone's opinion on him being 6'2". I was at LFCC with Rob and I saw Seagal, I had 2 inch boots on and he TOWERED over me, I am 5'11" on the dot. I thought he was more 6'4", but looked at him and re-assessed his height to conclude he looked 6'3 1/2. The listing is on the dot for Seagal.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Aug/18
Wow, this was surely one of the most wanted photos after Cruise and Stallone. Glad you met him and he was glad to get rid of you haha! I'm sure stood better Seagal looked 6'3.5. I still think 194 peak is nearer though, .25 wouldn't be a stretch.
Gracian said on 7/Aug/18
Rob, I think 6'4.25" as his peak height really fits better for him." Kelly LeBrock often liked to wear high heels, but Seagal always looked like a giant next to her. Here are the pictures of Seagal and Kelly from 1987:

And here the photos from the 1995 event, which include Nicole Kidman, Jim Carrey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Whoopi Goldberg, Julianne Moore, Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone, Gerard Depardieu and many others alongside Seagal, Steven at this event still looked strong 6'4" : Click Here
Click Here
In "Under Siege" in 1992 Steven looked no less than 4 inches taller than Tommy Lee Jones. In the 80's and most of the 90's, Steven looked over 6'4". Rob, will you give him upgrade to 6'4.25" now?
Msn1'87 said on 7/Aug/18
Rob, looking at this picture, what is your honest estimation?
Editor Rob
At his tallest I think over 6ft 3 for Seagal and solid 6ft 4 25 years ago.
Msn1'87 said on 7/Aug/18
Looks 1’89 - 1’90 here. Don’t think he’s lost much, max 2 cm, so 1’91-92 peak.
viper said on 6/Aug/18
I think he looks 6-2.5 here
Dream(5'9.5 said on 6/Aug/18
Was he 'easily' taller than J August Richards when you met him in person?

Of course, at peak, Seagal would have Richards by a good inch.
Editor Rob
Well, they wouldn't be that far apart if you saw them up close.
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Aug/18
@James B: Well in that case, Seagal definitely looks 6'4" max there while Lundgren looks 6'4" minimum. Seagal is probably still 6'3.25" or 6'3.5", though. I agree with berta, though. Seagal looks like he's lost some weight recently. Still much heavier than his prime, but nowhere near his heaviest.
Pierre said on 6/Aug/18
To my eyes,he seems to be a little bit under 6"3' by this pic;his posture seems to be disadvantageous at first sight but i think finally the contrary,all his body(even his legs) seems to be a little bit inclined on the left side and then i think he gain a little bit height in this posture because his pelvis can tilt up.And his head tilts up compared to Rob's head;and Rob does not force his posture.
Nice picture.
tree said on 6/Aug/18
But why his whole body looks like big mass of darkness?
I can't tell where his body ends and arms start.
MJKoP said on 6/Aug/18
Seems more than an inch taller than Tom Welling here, but I call that body language the "a down payment on my new yacht better be worth this"...I'd also describe that as his facial expression here, but when has he ever NOT had that look? :P
MAD SAM said on 6/Aug/18
Peak 193.5 cm, right now 192 cm
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Aug/18
@Rob: Yeah, that's definitely a reason. Dolph was also into weight training while Seagal didn't look to do much of that and I have never heard he did. Dolph said he was having a lot of trouble for 3-4 years before the double hip replacement, I know he had a motorcycle accident that led to torn ligaments filming Missionary Man in 2007 and his upper body and the way he holds himself also looks to me like someone who has had their share of injuries and has lost quite a bit of height even if I didn't know how much taller he use to be.
James B 172cm said on 5/Aug/18

i emailed the ultimate bad guy back in 2008 and he told me seagal wore cowboy boots in the scenes they shared in Fire Down Below.
berta said on 5/Aug/18
he actually does look thinner and healthier than i thought he would look. Ok he is 192 cm now at 66. i think we all can agree that peak was either 193 ore 194. I personally think steven looked a very legit 6 foot 4 guy at peak so i woudl go with 1/4 over 6 foot 4. this listing or a small fraction over at peak.
Connor Simpson said on 5/Aug/18
Looks more 6'2-6'2.5 here but that's because he's leaning, without the lean maybe 6'3.5 is still possible, is there a chance Seagal could be 6'3 flat now Rob? He's not that far off from being 70 now right?
Editor Rob
I would be more surprised if he only measured 6ft 3 than over it.
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Aug/18
It's amazing because Dolph is 5-6 years younger and takes better care of himself, though Dolph seems to have had worse injuries and has worse posture. Both were probably right around 6'4", but if anything, Dolph was taller in their primes as you can see comparing both Dolph and Seagal with 6'8"(?) Scott L. Schwartz, a.k.a. "Ultimate Bad Guy": Click Here Dolph looks no more than 3.5" shorter while Seagal looks at least 4" shorter. Dolph does have what look to me like a typical 1.25" type boot, but he never wore the bigger heeled boots Seagal often does, though I'd have to guess Seagal wasn't wearing them that day.
Editor Rob
Well, I think you have to consider their physical nature in films.

Seagal has been a more static actor...baddies run up to him and get knocked over without much effort.

Dolph I think has done a lot more physical work in films and more stunts.
Nik said on 4/Aug/18
He certainly doesn't come across as being taller than his listed height!
James B 172cm said on 4/Aug/18
yeah i'd say he looks 6ft2 with rob
Tall Sam said on 4/Aug/18
Not a fan of his personally as he comes off as a real sleaze on numerous levels but he was in some films I like (Under Siege or Executive Decision) when someone other than him was making shots behind the scenes. He does looks listed well.
Pierre said on 4/Aug/18
Rob,a question=do you know when you're standing only on one feet as Steven seems to stand here you can gain a little bit height?(Your pelvis can be higher in this posture when you place the other foot a little bit on tiptoe)
Editor Rob
I don't think he is doing that one foot thing...more like I'd add a couple cm to his height here.
Andrea said on 4/Aug/18
Well, if there is as much as a 4 degrees tilt against him, which is quite hard to tell with a neutral background like this, he would easily be near his 6'3.5 listing without it, I think...
Editor Rob
It's a good possibility he would be near it.
Declan Mclean said on 4/Aug/18
He looks 6 feet 5, but is an easy 6,3 if we do the math with a 5,8 rob paul standing next to him.
abcde said on 4/Aug/18
Steven Seagal 191 cm not more, maybe 190 cm
Gracian said on 4/Aug/18
Rob, I have two questions for you.
1. You said that his peak height is possible anywhere from 6'4" to 6'4.5" range. Can I still argue 1/8 upgrade to 6'4.25" for Seagal?
2. Did Steven personally look taller than Lundgren?
Please, Rob, answer both of my questions.
Editor Rob
Steven is taller than Dolph in a good inch, I think Dolph lost more height than Seagal.
I can see how 4.25 in 1990's is possible.
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Aug/18
@Rob: Interesting since it did seem he was less engaged for the photo than many you have with the hands in his pockets, but some people are more comfortable with this type of thing than others as you say. I see about a 6" difference in the pic, but I can see how he'd be losing some height. He has worn cowboy boots and cuban heels quite a bit in the past so good for this pic he wasn't wearing boots like that.
MJKoP said on 4/Aug/18
My condolences, Rob. XD
184guy said on 4/Aug/18
Yeah ... about 6'3.5 nowdays....
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Aug/18
Wow, didn't expect to see Seagal with Rob in the top corner! Nice pic, Rob. How was Steven in person and what were his footwear and posture like?
Editor Rob
I think footwear was a basic shoe so not much difference, I think would give him near 2cm more if he was standing at his absolute tallest.

As for interaction, from speaking to a few folk who got his autograph they did get more conversation from him, but photo ops aren't really a place, they can be quite quick at times.
Myself said on 4/Aug/18
Rob, Did he really look over 6'3.25 that day?
It's quite a strange photo, he wasn't comfortable getting closer?
Editor Rob
As I replied above, I am not sure this was his kind of 'thing'...but I think he got better with people the more the weekend went on.
Pierre said on 4/Aug/18
Rob,what type of shoes is he wearing in the picture next to you please?
Andrea said on 4/Aug/18
Unless he's losing something like 1.5 inches more than you, he looks nowhere near 6'3.5 here, but more somewhere around 6'2...
Editor Rob

I think he probably has lost half inch or so of height by age 65. He was taller than Tom Welling that weekend.

But I think if you give him back about 4 degree for the tilt, he is closer to his height.

There were several folk who got a photo before me but he wasn't interacting much at first, he barely even looked at me. He had his arms crossed like he normally does and then put them in his pockets. Mr Seagal, I ain't going to nick your wallet 🤑 To be fair, after I thanked him, he did say thank you very much and looked at me. I think I sensed relief in his eyes that I was leaving his presence 😄

As a Sensei, this whole photoshoot experience probably felt a bit strange for him....this was the 1st session he did that weekend, in the other subsequent 3 sessions he asked to be sat down beside £75, I am glad I got him earlier that day.
World Citizen said on 4/Aug/18
Looks 6 ft 2.5 at best
Dream(5'9.5") said on 4/Aug/18
This I agree. Nice picture Rob!
tree said on 4/Aug/18
If at 66 he is still 192cm no way he was not a strong 6ft4 guy
Any guess on his current weight?
Was he nice that day?xd
Paddy said on 29/Jul/18
I just saw him and confirmed with Rob that he is actually 6'4" on the dot.
James B 171.5cm said on 3/Jul/18
rampage-there didnt look much between seagal and wayans
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jun/18
I thought he could look 6ft4-5 in Glimmer Man if Wayans is a solid 6ft3
James B 170.8cm said on 17/Apr/18
Rob i thought at times he looked at most 6'4 compared too keenan ivory wayans in the glimmer man.

Did seagal already lose height by 1996? Or could keenan be a shade over 6'3?
Editor Rob
I think an inch on screen can sometimes seem barely anything. When seagal lost his first fraction is harder to pinpoint.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/18
Adnan, you must be on crack if you think Seagal is 186-187cm
Adnan said on 24/Mar/18
6'2" maybe 186 or 187 cm about 6 to 7" on putin (5'7")
sulu2018 said on 12/Mar/18
The "Your guess" height options needs to be updated to every 1/8 inch instead of only every 1/4 inch so that those whose listings are like 6ft 4 1/8 can have a guessing option of 6ft 4, 6ft 4 1/4, or 6ft 4 1/2, not just the ones with 3/8, 5/8 or 7/8 inch.
Editor Rob
Unfortunately it's tied in to the listing itself and 1/4 inch increments.

berta said on 10/Mar/18
good update. i wonder if dolph really was taller than steven.
Canson said on 27/Feb/18
Definitely as listed 193-193.5 like Rob has him. He didn’t quite look 6’4.5 in Above the Law with that real heavy guy who was taller than him in the scene outside the restaurant where they were attempting to kill him. He’s got very long proportions tho for a 6’4” guy. Could’ve been what Rob has him at his peak that actually looks right for him. But Looks 6’3.5 today at best with Barkley
sulu2018 said on 21/Feb/18
Someone can lose 5/8 to 3/4 inch or anything between as they get older.
Canson said on 13/Feb/18
Looked 6’4 in Half Past as well
Canson said on 13/Feb/18
I concur with Christian. Charles Barkley also had him by 1” or so. Peak tho in Above the Law looked 6’4” flat sane with Under Seige
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/18
He looked a proper 6ft4½ in Above The Law
berta said on 9/Jan/18
i think seagal is one fo those guys that was 193 at the absolute worst days in eveening. and a fraction over usually.
Anonymous said on 24/Dec/17
Steven is a really big guy, I saw him live when he made a movie, he looked easly over 6'3. "Probably a solid 6'4" he did all the people around dwarfs.
181cm said on 10/Dec/17
192cm is his height today....
James B said on 21/Nov/17
He could also pass as taller because he stood with excellent posture in some of his earlier films.
James B said on 18/Nov/17
Rampage- I don't understand why your asking Rob a question you already know the answer too? Look at him alongside keenan ivory wayans in glimmer man because even if Keenan is 6'3 1/2 like you believe he his seagal doesnt look a full 6'5 in comparison.
miko said on 16/Nov/17
6'4 prime and rake thin in his earlier years, he could pass for taller at times.

Today he's overweight and older, but is still clearly 6'3 plus, he's held his height very well.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 16/Nov/17
Likely legit 193cm at his peak but today could be 191cm since he looked the same as Jon Jones who's also 191-ish Click Here
Dmeyer said on 15/Nov/17
Oftnenly wear 1,5-1,75 shoes so not more than 6'4 Peak or 6'3,75 today 6'3-3,5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Nov/17
Rob, what are the chances of 6ft5 for a young Seagal?
Editor Rob: at times I'm sure he could look that tall to people, but I never seen enough to think he really was that tall in the 80's and early 90's during his prime.
James B said on 12/Nov/17
Rob he wore cowboy boots in fire down below down.
James B said on 9/Nov/17
Rob not doubting he was 6'4 peak but he did often wear big shoes didn't he in his films

A genuine 6'4 who wears big heeled shoes would look closer too 6'5.
Editor Rob: I can't remember exactly, did he have cowboy boots in some films?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Nov/17
In Above The Law a fair few of the guys that he fights are the same height or taller than him!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/17
Chances are higher that he's lost 1in but was a bit over 6ft4 in his prime
Junior said on 27/Oct/17
Click Here: If base on this picture with Charles Barkley i don't see anything over 6'3.25" for Seagal but not sure about their footwear.
Dmeyer said on 18/Oct/17
Those boots Seagal IS wearing will give 4cm , Dolph usualy wore shoes in thé 3cm rangé so 1cm advantage not so much
Ted said on 2/Oct/17
Dolph has lost more height than Seagal and he is 5 or 6 years younger than him. He's not even 60 yet. Crazy.

Seagal is still between 6' 3'' and 6' 4''.
Rising - 174 cm said on 30/Sep/17
I agree, James. Dolph looked taller than Seagal to me, especially since Dolph didn't wear the cowboy boots Seagal did. If you compare both of them to Ultimate Bad Guy(about 6'8", but claims 6'10"!), Dolph measured up noticeably better than Seagal did: Click Here We can account for Dolph's footwear there, but even assuming Seagal didn't have his heeled boots. Of course, Seagal would probably be taller now despite letting himself go and being half a decade older while Dolph has stayed in shape. Goldblum might have been "a touch" above 6'4" as he said, though he's looking 6'3.5" max to me compared to Liam Hemsworth nowadays. Hasselhoff maybe, but I'm less sure of Neeson.

Anyway, this is what I'm referring to as far as Seagal's boots

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Still wearing them recently: Click Here and even way back when he did Above the Law, you can see he had Cuban heels: Click Here

Full 6'4"? Yeah. Over it? I'm not so sure. The fact he could look it might be explained by his choice of footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/17
Arch, I honestly think Neeson and Hasselhoff are as deserving of that billing as Seagal
James B said on 18/Sep/17
Arch-Dolph seemed like a guy who was slightly taller.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Sep/17
Rob, perhaps you could tweak to 6'4.25 peak, it's the average here, like Goldblum and Dolph I don't think it's hard to believe if you measured him in the 80s he'd have measured a tad over 6'4 flat.
Canson said on 24/Aug/17
6'4" at his lowest peak
Canson said on 14/Aug/17
Peak 6'4" no higher.
Junior said on 13/Aug/17
He look as listed a 6'4 peak
Ted said on 30/Jul/17
After watching Above The Law, I think its safe to say that he could scrape 6' 5'' in the morning. Very tall and very lanky.
Max said on 13/Jul/17
When you are very tall, above 6'3" and you are heavy, above 250lbs. People always think you are shorter than you are because very few people are truly large. I am 6'5.5" & 300 lbs, and people will say I am 6'4" and then are shocked when someone they know is a certified 6'4" like cop is a couple inches shorter than me...Steven is a tall guy but "looked much taller in his early work because he was 100 lbs lighter. I am a fan and think people enjoy picking on him, online. People don't have much to say when in front of a guy over 6'3" and over 250lbs with a Black Belt.
Matt Rohler Iowa said on 3/Jul/17
I believe big Steve to be around 6ft 3 inch nowadays. I believe he was close to 6ft 5 when he was younger. His slim body frame made him appear taller. I'm the biggest fan personally.
Ted said on 26/Jun/17
6' 4.5'' peak.
Canson said on 24/Jun/17
Prime was 6'4" definitely like in Above the law in the 80s today may have dipped to 192cm
RisingForce said on 2/Jun/17
Thanks, Rob. I've only watched a few of Seagal's straight to video movies as they're generally not up to par with his late 80s/early 90s, but I'll probably check that one out.
Editor Rob: yeah, compared to some films like Under Seige or Nico, Seagal's last 15 years hasn't been particularly memorable...
RisingForce said on 30/May/17
Are there any particular examples of Seagal looking obviously under 6'4" lately? I'm asking as an honest question because I haven't followed him much in a few years now so I'm curious to see if he's definitely lost height or not.
Editor Rob: he looks to have had numerous scenes in Maximum Conviction with Stone Cold Austin, I still meant to watch it one day.
Canson said on 21/Mar/17
@Jonesey: look at Irvin next to Aikman and Emmit. He's for sure 6'2. To be honest the pic you posted with magic Johnson and Charles Barkley Merriman looks disadvantaged by the camera in both. A 6'7" Magic would put Merriman 6'3 but looks like magic has the camera angle. A 6'4.5 Barkley (by the way I agree on Barkley's height because a friend of mine met him and said he's my height) looks about 2" taller with camera advantage. But I won't discredit you if you did meet him in person. I wasn't right next to him I was about 100 feet or so when I met him. However Michael Irvin I have met and shook hands with so no way he's only 6'0" tall and 4 inches shorter than me (I'm Just about 6'4 3/8).

Canson said on 21/Mar/17
@Jonesey: now Irvin is for sure 6'2". I stood right next to him. You cannot always use pictures to differentiate height differences. Maybe you are right for Merriman but Irvin is for sure 6'2.
Jonesey said on 19/Mar/17
You thought Michael Irvin was 6'2 when he looks no taller than 6'0 with measured athletes on his instagram.

Merriman looks 6'2 with a weak 6'2.1 morning measured Larry English. Click Here

Merriman looks 6'2 Max with 5'11 measured Nolan Carroll. Click Here

Only looks 6'0 here with 5'11 Mario. Click Here
Canson said on 19/Mar/17
Maybe you're right about merriman but he looked taller than that to me but I wasn't right next to him either. I myself am 6'4" and change and he didn't look that small to me
Jonesey said on 18/Mar/17
Canson you have to admit Merriman physically looks no taller than 6'2 here. Click Here
Jonesey said on 18/Mar/17
Canson, Ive seen Merriman up close and he gave more of a 6'1 impression. He was measured 6'2 at his pro day.

Rudy Gay said hes 6'2 on his twitter.

Anyway he looks 6'2 with Seagal.

How tall do you think 6'5.1 Nelson Rosario is If Merriman was taller than 6'2.
Merriman looks 6'1 with him. Click Here
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Mar/17
Last night I saw the beginning of a Stephen Seagal film and I thought, "Next time I see this guy on the Latest Comments page, then I really must check him out!"
That day came a whole lot sooner than expected and yes, Stephen is every bit as tall as I thought he would be; I said "He's got to be a strong 6ft4!"
I didn't catch which year the film was made and it is always helpful to do so to suss out the possible shrinkage that might have taken place since, but Steve was dragging around an unconscious man with the relative ease that most of us would experience with an awkward sack of spuds! He looked fit and huge and gets 6ft4.25 from me for his peak and 6ft3.5 for today's height.
There were other very tall men in the film but I reckon he was the tallest! The women seemed all of normal to just below normal height, so that was how I came to my assumption of a strong 6ft4!
Canson said on 17/Mar/17
Shawn Merriman is taller than 6'2". I've seen him in public albeit not close but even from the distance of maybe 100 feet he looked taller. I'd say he's close to 6'4" if not a full 6'4"

Just watched Submerged. Occasional hilarious doubles aside, he doesn't seem much taller than 6'1" Vinnie Jones. 2 inches is pushing it, more like 3-4 cm between them.

6ft 2-2.5in (188-89 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 3-3.5in (191-92 cm)

Makes no difference to me. He is a 6' plus man who is just that. He does know something about martial arts.

Rob, how about a current height? Would like to vote for it :)
Editor Rob: I think it is probably more than likely today a bit of loss, but for nothing large.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/16
There were a number of six-footers in Above The Law (i.e. Henry Silva, Ronny Cox, Chelcie Ross) so his height wasn't always that noticeable. Plus...

Click Here

Two guys at the end of this clip who are visibly taller than him. The one who tries to pick a fight with him and gets thumped looks at least 6ft7 range while the other guy he walks past after is maybe 6ft5-6 range.
Morningheight 182cm said on 3/Oct/16
Never mind those 2000's movies people go back when this man was younger like in Above the Law he could have maxed out at 6'4.5 then. Remember once you hit certain age you'll be losing some height.
Aza said on 27/Sep/16
Apologies... Axa post is from me.... Eyesight is becoming poor, I stand by the 6'3 claim as he seems to wear boots all the time and weight and age must be taking some toll on his height . Would say his peak was 6'4.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Sep/16
He was only in one 80s film as a star though ;-)
Axa said on 26/Sep/16
Do not think he was ever 6'5. 6'4 peak and 6'3 today .
James B said on 26/Sep/16
Arch- with his boots and slim frame in his 80s films I am sure he could pull of near 6'5.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Sep/16
Nah he was never a legit 6'5, check out Ext Wounds with 6'4.5 Bill Duke and 6'6 Matthew G Taylor. If anything he lokoed 6 ft 3 range in that film! 194 peak is the most I could buy. He used to wear big ass boots a lot which made him a bit taller.

he was never a legit 6'4" he used to stand at 6'3"-6'3.75" nowerdays he is still hanging on to the very tall range still but just barely 6'36'3.25" neesan was 6'4" legit though in that picture he was dropping height though
Canson said on 5/Sep/16
@Arch: I agree. I can't see footwear but he looks almost (within 1/2" of Barkley) who is about 6'4 1/2. Barkley too wears higher footwear at times so could be a wash. I'd say Seagal may be 6'4 still

Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/16
Neeson would look taller than Seagal if he had the same posture in that photo. It'd be interesting to measure Neeson, Seagal, Hasselhoff and Goldblum in their prime and today. They're just a few months apart in age (all born in 1952) and looked indistinguishable height-wise peak (6ft4-4½). I find it hard imagine Liam losing height when he's in considerably better shape (but poor posture usually) than Steven who with all his weight problems hasn't been given a peak height (he can look just 6ft3 now). The other two guys look like they've lost hardly anything. Both separately looked over 1in taller than Dwayne Johnson (6ft2½-3), Hasselhoff in photos for the upcoming Baywatch movie on the beach where they're both barefoot and Goldblum on The Graham Norton Show. Goldblum also edges out Liam Hemsworth (6ft3-3½) in most photos.

Rob, what do you think?
Editor Rob: they all potentially were a little bit over 6ft 4
Shredder said on 15/Jul/16
I'm with Danimal , 6'5 ish peak , , he still looks at least 6'5 now when he wears Cowboy boots , He was at least 4 inches taller than my 6'1 cousin that took a photo with him.

6'5 in the morning at his peak yes but not by afternoon.

@Arch: he looks 6'4 I agree. It's tricky with him because of his choices in footwear
Shredder said on 7/Jul/16
6'5 peak. He was a tall guy.
James B said on 4/Jul/16
Arch- today he might measure a fraction shy of 6ft4 at nigh time maybe?
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jul/16
@Canson Just a few years back there was a video of Seagal and Anderson Silva barefoot on the mat training and Seagal looked roughly 2.5 inches taller. By Rob's estimates and my own with others Silva is around 6'1.5, which puts Seagal still at 6'4. I don't think he's lost much at all. With some 199cm politican a year or two ago he was also still looking about that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/16
Neeson's lost a little bit maybe but Lundgren can look barely 6ft2 at times today which is shocking for a guy whose not even 60 and who once stood a strong 6ft4.
Editor Rob: physically demanding film roles may have contributed to excessive wear & tear...
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
@Arch: maybe for his prime and he may have just lost height over the years. You may be right! With seagal it was tricky because he always wore boots. I actually just watched one of my favorites (Above the Law) and also under siege and he has higher shoes on both but above the law he looks 6'4 I'll give you that. He's very tall in the movie!
James B said on 1/Jul/16
Arch- speaking of goldblum me and my brother were amazed how tall he looked with heeled shoes when viewing the early parts of jurrasick park the lost world.

How tall do you think those shoes boosted him to?
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jul/16
I mean peak of course, Neeson and Lundgren in particular have lost height now!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jul/16
C'mon Canson,if there's one guy out of the 6'4 listed ones who never looked under 6'4 it was Seagal. He's one of the best examples of a proper 6'4 and how big that can look. He could really look a proper 6'5 in Out for Justice. I think Goldblum, Seagal, Neeson, Lundgren and Hasselhoff are all great examples of legit 6'4 guys, you could probably argue 6'4.5 at times for any of them in fact.
Shredder said on 1/Jul/16
I am not going to sit here and say that guy is 6 ft 3 , but Steven looks 6'6 there , most likely in cowboy boots and He also looked about 6'6 ( in cowboy boots ) next to my cousin who is 6'1. I have always believed Steven was 6'5 " barefoot in his prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/16
Rob, how tall would say that '6ft3' guy w/h Seagal really is?

I see less than 6ft1 in that photo!
Editor Rob: yeah he might be 6ft 1 range...

as an aside, this is Putin's favourite photo with Seagal...
Canson said on 30/Jun/16
@Ice: I agree with Height that he isn't a legit 6'4. He has typical long limbs but has prob been 6'3 for quite some time. No way this guy is 6'5 in shoes. That is why you think 6'2 is short because so many 6'0 guys most likely claim it
Ice said on 29/Jun/16
I would have bought 6'4" - 6'5" in his popular films .

Seagal hasn't lost any height at all. Surprised considering the fact that he's well over 60 and has been performing physical stunts in movies for decades. Was a solid 6' 4" back then, is still a solid 6' 4" today.

@ Sonny Black Aikido is a highly effective martial art , as specially for fighting on the street . A 7th Dan master of ANY martial art will be able to destroy nearly anyone on the street . Try punching a 7th Dan Aikido master and your arm will be snapped before you can even registre it completeley
Alucard said on 13/Sep/15
You have to make a clear distinction between fighters and martial artists... Majority of those you see in movies, like Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, JCVD, Tony Jaa, and many others, are martial artists, actors, performers, stuntmen, not fighters... Seagal is the same, he has size and could maybe beat average joes on the streets or in a bar, but not someone who's trained in legit effective arts, like boxing, BJJ, and MMA in general... Things like Aikido or Wing Chun, for example, are not exactly applicable in real life against a resisting opponent...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Aug/15
@James B: the average bloke in the pub, absolutely.
But he's not indestructible.
James B said on 18/Aug/15
Seagal in real life could beat the average man who does not do martial arts/or others forms of fighting like boxing easily in a fight. But he ain't as good as he is in his movies put it that way.

I think his height as well is a big advantage over most men.
Alucard said on 10/Aug/15
Something strange going on, watch him "training" on the mat with Lyoto Machida, who's billed at 6'1, both barefoot, Seagal looks a bit taller, doesn't seems close to 6'4 at all...
Jason said on 10/Aug/15
To Sonny Black: All this talk about a guy backing down from another guy just reeks of immaturity. It's like the kid in school who brags about his 'tough guy' dad being able to beat up all the other neighborhood dads. All that braggadocio....Seagal likely could 'whip' most people on this forum in a fight (even at his age). And even if he did back down from some guys in the past -- so what? Does a guy have to be able to beat everybody or fight everybody to prove himself something special? News Flash: Guys are only human. Nobody is Superman or Godzilla -- we ALL have weaknesses. But for some guys that is hard to admit.

Perhaps it might be worth you emailing him and asking questions about how tall Seagal looked to him in 1997?
James B said on 2/Jun/15
There was a story from 99 where Seagal was manhandled by a wrestler
Sonny Black said on 31/May/15
Ice & Rob No offense but if you understood martial arts & combat sports in general you'd realize that the art of Akido, which Seagal is a master in, is a "demonstration only" martial art more akin to dancing than real fighting. Seagal has no real recorded fight history and has even backed down from real fights in the past, as recounted by people who know him & have worked with him. As for his height I guess I believe 6'4, but I've also heard that he wears lifts or big boots, and to be honest given this guys huge ego, I wouldn't put it past him despite his already tall stature.
[Editor Rob: I do have a bit of Martial Arts knowledge ;) And I wouldn't want to be hit by even a half hearted Seagal punch!]

Rampage 194cm is possible in the 80s/90s.

In out for justice when he dressed in all black and was still fairly on the slim side he could pull of looking around 6'5.

10 years later in exit wounds looked 6'3 though.

Like Neeson, Goldblum and Hasselhoff, Seagal looked close to 6ft5 in the 80's and 90's.
The four of them are close in age (all born in 1952) and have probably lost a bit

[Editor Rob: I might if I can have a look at some recent videos of him.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/15
He can still pull off 6ft4 now. I think it's more a case of him being a bit over that mark in his prime. Dude's far from healthy and his weight gain has possibly led to a slight dip. I call BS on the 275lbs. He'd look more like Steve Austin at that weight. We're looking at 300lbs or more
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 6/Mar/15

Actually i thought that Glimmer Man was ok. There was a fair bit of humour in that movie. "You speak Russian?" (Proceeds to slam guy's head off car) "You speak good russian!".
Under Siege and Hard To Kill were his best though imo.

"Noone beats me in the kitchen" and " Hey private get my pies out the oven".
GP said on 5/Mar/15
LOL, that's funny Arch. He never felt humiliated when beating........ That's why people in Hollywood don't put him in movies. It's sad because he used to have potential 20 years ago, lol!
[Editor Rob: you have to be careful sometimes with accusations, just a reminder!]
Arch Stanton said on 4/Mar/15
He is definitely a mass of contradictions. I recently read Seagal "recently helped Russia's government relaunch a nationwide fitness programme ". You'd think he'd be superfit to have done that and look at him. 20 stone of lard LOL. How can you promote national fitness for the world's largest country like that and not feel a little humiliated in doing so!
James B said on 31/Dec/14
Steven Seagal fit guy? Maybe in the 80s but he weighs near 20 stone today

rob his eyelevel is 12cm?
And he is 62 why he didint lost height?
[Editor Rob: it's possibly close to 12cm, I think there is a chance he's lost some...he's still a fit guy and as he aged he didn't go mad with stunts, enemies seemed to come up to him and he'd be more static and repel them. His body might not have taken a battering like a guy like chan's, who in 50's was still doing action acting that guys half his age would struggle with.]

Arch Stanton said on 3/Dec/14
Haha Rob, Seagal and Alison King were actually in a movie together in Submerged. I knew the film rang a bell! She was quite bad ass in it with a gun and arm wrestling and stuff. Not great. The worst Seagal movie I've seen I think is the one where he's an archaeologist in deepest Mongolia or something in Out for a Kill I think it was. With a name like Out for a Kill it's a sorry excuse for a movie. It should be classic Seagal with a name like that!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/14
Out For Justice and Above The Law had some funny bits. Glimmer was a turd mountain. Same with On Deadly Ground.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Nov/14
There's a good one in On Deadly Ground when he has a fight with Mike Starr who pukes up and Seagal says something like "Urgh. Is that Halibut?". Hehe.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Nov/14
Yeah that's right. Glimmer was the one with the powdered deer penis wasn't it LOL. I thought that was a good film, I can't believe that and Out for Justice only have under 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Hell if a Seagal movie like Glimmer Man is worth only 13% what about ones like Pistol Whipped and Urban Justice!!!
[Editor Rob: Seagal's made some real dodgy straight to videos in the last decade that make Glimmer Man look like a work of Art...for what it is, I think it was decent effort and with a bit of humour thrown in raised it. I give it a 6!
Arch Stanton said on 26/Nov/14
Hehe Rob the Anna May Wong thing made me think, which is your favourite Seagal line? What's the most badass thing he ever said in a film? Here's some viable candidates off the top of my head!

a] "Nobody beats me in the kitchen"
b] "Yo, f**k nuts"
c] "If your daddy knew how stupid you were, he'd trade you in for a pet monkey"
d] "No, the one with the nipples you can dial a phone with"
e] "He's the kind of guy who would drink a gallon of gasoline so that he can p**s into your campfire."
f] "Tell Richie I'm gonna cut off his head and p**s down his throat!"

Out for Justice had a lot of great exchanges I think, particularly the pool scene which I think is definitely the pinnacle of his career!!
[Editor Rob: they are all funny quotes, actually Glimmer Man I think had a bit more humour to it than some of his films.

There was a couple, I forget which film something like "for 300,000 bux I'd f*** anything once." and "don't worry about the FBI...they couldn't find a hooker in a whorehouse anyway"

Was silva measured 6'2 early in the morning?
Arch Stanton said on 4/Oct/14
Not seen Seagal in a while James but last time I saw him he had a dodgy dyed goatee and honestly looked easily 6'4" next to Anderson Silva. I thought he looked between 1 and 2 inches taller than Wayans in Glimmer but I think he had on his typical thick boots.

Nah, I think a peak Seagal was about as honest a 6'4" as you can get

I dunno Arch you should watch Glimmer Man and compare him next to Keenan Wayans because at times there looks very little between them.
James B said on 9/Sep/14
1.5 inches shorter than bill duke and struggling to looking close in height to Keenan ivory wayans.

6'4 is starting to look a bit suspect do you agree rob?

In Exit Wounds he was easily an inch shorter than 6'4.5 listed Bill Duke which is confusing.. He also looked nearer 6'3" next to that 6'6" Canadian actor Matthew G. Taylor in it! Probably the shortest I've seen him look in that film..

Arch you think 6'3.5 could be possible for Seagal? Rob thinks he's closer to 194cm than 192cm but next to Keenan wayans struggled to look an inch taller at times. Seagal had great posture in that film as well compared to Keenan who slouches a lot.

I guess wayans could be 6'3 1/2?

Hehe, Rob I chopped the hair off yesterday. Without anything in it on the sides it was starting to look like a Dutch basketball player and I don't think the ponytail would be a good look! It is surprising though how after growing your hair for a long time how different your face and hair look when you get it cut, better I think.
[Editor Rob: Seagal will be disappointed.]
James B said on 1/Aug/14
Seagals looking old i must say. He looks about 2.5 inches taller than the 6'1 guy.

6'3.75 today
Peak 6'4.25 peak

Rob, the guy on the left is a legit 6'1" in person, he's a former schoolmate. How tall does Seagal look in comparison? Bearing in mind he does look to be at a slight camera disadvantage.
[Editor Rob: I think Seagal can still look near 6ft 4 there]
James B said on 25/Jul/14
Looked 6'5 in Out for Justice.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/14
Haha! Look at all that grease! I'd guess that was around Marked for Death period, pre Velcro transplant :-) He's almost saying "Nobody beats me in the kitchen". Yeah, the "tail" is probably best avoided for a lot of blokes! I can't imagine you ever growing one again! You could always go for that Argentinian footballer look with the shaved head and long tiny rat's tail though! You could poke G's eye out with that thing!
[Editor Rob: the tail is a disadvantage in a fight don't see chuck with a Ponytail ;)]
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jul/14
Hehe can you find a photo of Seagal with a ponytail to put up here to marvel at :-) Part Velcro!
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jul/14
Did you? Hehe, I'd never have guessed! I can't imagine you with hair going back! I think it might look good actually! Especially with the beard! Chuck Norris action jeans? LMAO!! I remember I used to have a really light faded pair of Lee jeans in the mid 90s which I call my Kurt Russell jeans!! I'm being honest now, I'm seriously thinking of going for the tail though!! I've been growing my hair out for a while now as it tends to curl up and go haywire when it's shorter and I got fed up of it. I've been growing it out as an experiment to see what happens and I find the longer it gets the better quality it goes and the straighter it begins to look. I've got that thick dark blond hair type, Ewan Mcgregor sort of thing. When I wash it with conditioner and slick it back and put a little gel in it when it dries it looks much better on top than it does when shorter. The weightier it goes, the tidier it looks. In many ways it's more manageable longer but it's beginning to reach the stage where it's starting to look like an 80s tennis player at the back and I'm thinking about going for a sleek tail to keep it all tidy!! I just don't want to be one of the douche guys who wear them to stand out, in my case it's really for maintenance reasons! I don't suit very short hair, it would be different if I had that thinning hair type or that really sharp short hair which looks good like Djokovic or somebody but I haven't. It suits me longer and the longer it gets the straighter and sleeker it begins to look! Plus I'm a guitarist so I have more of an excuse :-) It's just a lot of the famous guys who wear/have worn them are douchebags! Funny too that most of them are 6'3-6'4" guys! I think of it as similar to a beard in terms of maintenance, rather than being clean shaven and having to shave twice a day all the time which is mind numbingly annoying to just grow the full beard and keep it trimmed down. It's a lot easier to maintain! I don't wanting to be faffing about in front of a mirror with all that styling nonsense, and don't like skinheads, so I only have one option left, to keep it tidier in a long ponytail and never have to style it! I'm just concerned that society has a stigma against guys with ponytails!
[Editor Rob: I try to keep mine relatively short for easier maintenance and for dong this site, or I'd have done different styles, but not he ponytail again :)]
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jul/14
Rob do you think it takes a certain kind of fella to wear a ponytail? Do you think it screams arrogance or deep insecurity or what? I think it's probably a mixture of both. A lot of guys with ponytails or who had ponytails really come across as super arrogant stand out types. Seagal, Ibrahimovic, Andy Carroll and Darius Danesh for instance come across as about as arrogant as you can get, and of course G is about as insecure as you can get. In fairness though if you have a certain hair type which is really difficult and messy to style when shorter and looks crap shaved then it might look tidier than when shorter and actually less maintenance! It does suit a lot of the tall and dark types, although a lot of the Argentine and Italian footballer types who wear them seem really greasy.
[Editor Rob: hey buddy, I used to have a Ponytail at Uni :) Of course I was a dedicated student and after a year of having it thought I better go shorter...although I loved twiddling with my curls!

I actually gave myself an undercut style back when Van Damme had long hair, I think around the Hard Target film. I also had a make of jeans that I called 'Chuck Norris action Jeans'...]

He looked at least 194 (6.4 1/2) next to self claimed 6.6ft famous bulgarian host Slavi Trifonov (although he had some bulky shoes).He is at least 300 pounds too :(
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jun/14
Rob can you mention Executive Decision, Out for Justice, Hard to Kill, On Deadly Ground, Firedown Below, The Glimmer Man and Exit Wounds?

@James. A lot of people talk about people who work out excessively being vain and egotistical but in Seagal's case I think it is actually the opposite and part of the problem that he sees himself as superior so doesn't care if he is overweight and not motivated to "prove" himself sort of thing. He's clearly very comfortable with who he is. Still, being a martial artist you'd really expect him to be in some sort of shape.
James B said on 2/Jun/14
Seagal was naturally slight in frame in the 80s he could do with getting down to 13 stone 5 at the age he is now. A tall guy at minimum 193cm yes but he clearly did not have a large mesomorphic frame but more ecotomorph (narrow shoulders and long lanky limbs in Nico). Although being a lethal weapon at his age and height weighing 20 stone is VERY unhealthy.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jun/14
BTW in Ticker Seagal had like 3 inches on Peter Greene who claims like 6 ft 3 or something! In Under Siege 2 I think Seagal only looked about 2 inches taller than him though. I think Greene is more like 6'2" though, he doesn't look 6'3". Seagal must have had generous footwear in Ticker.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jun/14
The thing is with a name like "Out for a Kill" you're expecting early 90s bad ass action with the witty one liners. What you get is an utter disappointment cashing in on his earlier credible action movies.
RisingForce said on 30/May/14
Yeah, I think the worst I've seen was Attack Force where Seagal's voice was dubbed at times, but wasn't at other times! I saw it on cable one night a few years ago around 3 AM, but even at that time, it was a regret!
Arch Stanton said on 28/May/14
Yeah I agree Rising, anything up to Exit Wounds is great, after that it went sour. I've seen half a dozen of his post 2001 films and almost all were identical LOL. The worst one, Out for a Kill I think he was an archaeologist or something, that's goes down among the worst 10 films I've seen in the last five years.It was a shocker. I'm actually in the mood for some Seagal right now, I think I'll watch Ticker, that was 2001...

Fast? When was this gent ever fast? Not on his feet.

That's a dumb comment. What on earth has reflex action got to do with how fats you can run a mile or something?? Yes, he did run like a girl in Above the Law but he had extremely fast reflexes back in the 80s. Watch one of his early aikido demonstrations. You wouldn't stand a chance against him, even today, despite his weight he's still got it. He admitted he was way too tall to be ideal for aikido but despite his size he's very quick in small movements.
ian c. said on 27/May/14
In my previous post I wrote "marital arts" when I meant "martial arts." These are two different arts. My own wife is proficient in both, but only one at a time.
ian c. said on 25/May/14
Okay, okay, the man does show impressive hand speed. But you notice, Seagal is the only marital arts hero guy whose character regularly uses guns. And I'm saying, you can infer from that something about his capacities. That is, he's a lot more practical minded than those other dummies who just use fists and feet.
RisingForce said on 25/May/14
ian c., Seagal uses Aikido which I believe is about self-defense and using their attack against them, which is why you see him waiting for someone to attack him in the movies. Personally, I'm a big fan of martial arts and action movies, and did generally enjoy Seagal's movies from Above The Law through the early 90's, but I can't watch his straight to video stuff from the past decade. It's unfortunate, but he's just gotten far too out of shape, and not only are the movies not comparable to his early ones, but neither are the fight scenes, and lets it face it, Seagal was in movies because of the fight scenes, not because he's Al Pacino.
ian c. said on 24/May/14
Fast? When was this gent ever fast? Not on his feet. In Above the Law he has an extended running scene, and he runs like a whooping crane. Tom Cruise could run by him going backwards. Also, his fighting style is an odd kind of flim flammery where he stands still and waits for somebody to punch him, and then throws or countersmacks the victim, who should have just used a gun. It doesn't look especially athletic, like the balletic fighting of Bruce Lee or Jean Claude van Damme, who liked to kick people in the face. Also, he's fat now, but in Above the Law he seems more thin than muscular, with narrow shoulders and a shallow chest. It wouldn't surprise me if he got fat in a failed effort to compensate for his lack of muscular bulk.
[Editor Rob: in terms of martial arts moves, not running speed...although he still could probably move 3 times as fast in 80's as he would today.]
Arch Stanton said on 21/Feb/14
It made me laugh in an interview he had a few years back when one of the interviewers gave him a ribbing about his weight gain and asked him if he was still as fast as he was 10 years ago and Seagal said "faster". You should have seen the look on his face, he was fuming!! A bit lanky legged in Above the Law but he looked damn good back then. Immaculately dressed in Italian designer clothing too. He quickly went downhill from there, he must have gained 20-30 pounds even by Out for Justice just 2 or 3 years later. 6'4.5" peak I think. He looked very Italian looking back then but nowadays he really looks more eastern Russian to me, which he actually does have heritage form on his father's side.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 20/Feb/14
Maybe he's 6ft 5 in some dress shoes or trainers, but yeah strong 6ft 4 at peak i definetly agree with rob, seagal is at least 6ft 4 flat today i think when he will be in his late 60s im sure he will dip under 6ft 4 and be in the 6ft 3-3.75 range.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 19/Feb/14
I think Seagal is still 6ft 4 today could be a few mms under or a fraction under it a worst, but he's a big guy you would not want to pick a fight with thats for sure, looked very tall in Out for Justice and did actually look 6ft 5 you could also argue 194cm for his prime 194-195cm is a possibility.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 19/Feb/14
Rob do you think Steven Seagal could have been 6ft 5 in his prime like around the 80's-90's, he did look 6ft 5 in Out for Justice. Very big tall guy you wouldn't wanna mess with.
[Editor Rob: the Seagal of the 80's and early 90's could move...I mean you wouldn't mess with him as he was fast. The Seagal of the 2000's seemed to be more static and enemies would just run up to him without much movement. I don't think he was a real 6ft 5, but a strong 6ft 4 range]
