Yo rob, idk if he slouched in Karate kid 3 but is he more 195.3 cm or 196.2 cm?

I don't think he's 6ft 5. In the Karate Kid Part III Griffith has some scenes with actor Martin Kove who is 6ft 1/185cm. In their scenes together Griffith only looks slightly taller than Martin. Unless Martin Kove was wearing some special footwear with lifts/heels/boosts, I'd say Griffith is about 6ft 2, 6ft2.5 or 6ft 3 at most.

Honestly, I don't know if Martin Kove (who is 6ft 1/185cm) was wearing any lifts in their scenes together in the Karate Kid part III, but Thomas Ian Griffith doesn't look too much taller than him, I'd say he looks about 6ft 2, 6ft 2.5 or 6ft 3 at the most. I mean their heights look nearly identical, there isn't a big difference between them, Griffith just looks slightly taller, and it doesn't seem that Martin Love was wearing any footwear with lifts/heels/boosters.

@Bobby: yea some guys that size don’t dip below 6’5”. I know in my case I only lose .75” or max 2 cm unless it’s an extreme low territory. I’m essentially the same as you 6’5” or 6’5 1/16” out of bed and 6’4.25-.3 afternoon height. My buddy who is an inch taller is 6’5.25” afternoon height and 6’6 flat out of bed

He remembers me to Randy Orton, but he is a solid big guy at 6'5
Juha Rekola said on 8/May/20
Could he have worn lifts while filming Vampires? I think he looked taller than 6'5 in that film, closer to 7 feet in some scenes!

Not a full 2in between him and Sorbo

He looks a weak 6'5" with Kevin Sorbo

With 6ft3.25 Kevin Sorbo Click Here
MrTBlack said on 19/Jun/18
He’s generally looked more than just 6’4” to me but I think him being a weak 6’5” is more likely than a solid or strong one.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 11/May/18
Actually, now that you mentioned it Rob, I looked back at Karate Kid Part 3.

He did look 6'4.5-6'5" in this scene with Ralph.

You definitely could be right. Maybe it's just camera angles or posture, but He doesn't really look over 6'5."
Dream(5'9.5 said on 6/May/18

That answer surprised me!

What made you think Bo would measure the taller of the two?

Was there a particular movie, TV show, or video where Griffith didn't look as tall as 6'5?
Editor Rob
Well there is a greater chance from what I've seen of Thomas to fall a little shy of 6ft 5 than Bo.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 3/May/18
Rob, how would this guy far with Bo Burnham?
Editor Rob
You could argue Bo as the stronger of the 6ft 5ers.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/17
Rob, could we add a photo and some more credits?

Karate Kid III, Excessive Force and Kull Th Conquerer

Interesting fact: He's younger than Ralph Macchio

Looked pretty massive on "One Tree Hill". Listing sounds accurate.
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
Rob, this is the most solid 6'5 claim actor. Perhaps an upgrade at 6'5.25?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/16
It'd be interesting to see him back to back with Tom Robbins. I think he may come out the stronger 6ft5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/16
He looks massive in KK3. Made Ralph Macchio look like an 8 year old.
S.J.H said on 21/Jun/15
6ft5.25 top over tony todds
Shadow2 said on 3/May/15
When he played Rock Hudson in the TV movie in 1989 on Rock's life, Griffith seemed only three inches taller than William R. Moses (playing Marc Christian) who is no more than 6' 1". There seemed no reason to increase Moses' height artificially, as Rock was 6' 5" himself and Christian a lot shorter.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Nov/14
Rob, you should add Karate Kid 3 to that line.

Definitely a solid 6ft5
KROC said on 23/Apr/14
Looks more of a solid 6'5 then Tony Todd...
Daniele said on 21/Sep/13
Taller than Sorbo in "Kull The Conqueror". He's at least 6'4.5, in line with Rob's aestimate...
Yaspaa said on 6/Jun/13
He has made too many 6'3 guys look diminutive.
R said on 30/Oct/12
not a chance is he anywhere near his claim that would make everybody in xx huge i give him 6'3 at best.
Tony said on 15/Oct/12
In my opinion, in "Excessive Force", Griffith 6'4.75" or 6'5"and Todd 6'4" or 6'4.5".

He looks taller than 6'5" tony todd in "Excessive Force"

Yes, saw the movie and seems like about 1" difference "

Tony, if Thomas Ian Griffith is 6'5 and tony todd would really be 6'4.5, i watch Excessive Force twice during high school that still memory of sight i remember the tiny 0.5" different spoted. if not 6'6 goes for Thomas Ian Griffith and 6'5 for Tony Todd a less chance. Griffith maybe 6'5.5 and Todd is really hard to be under 6'4.75
LAN Jiao said on 26/Oct/11
lol.. think he only look 1/2" than 1" taller than todd. someone point Thomas Ian Griffith as low as 6'4 that would make todd 6'3.5 and many say 6'4.5 than tony todd 6'4. i think he is right at 6'5.25 and todd is 6'4.75

6'4" and 95 kilos..he looks pretty big..
Manuel said on 11/Apr/11
I think about 6'4" and 6'5 1,95cm i would Karate kid 3 in some moments he is withouth shoes when training while Daniel is wearing sport shoes before Miyaguis fight...and about 90 kilos weight i would say.
Tony said on 12/Mar/11
thebad7, in the movie "Excessive Force" he looks taller than Tony Todd. 6'5" seems correct.
thebad7 said on 10/Mar/11
I think 6'5" is a bit of a stretch for him. Next to (approx.) 6'1" Martin Kove in the third KARATE KID installment, he looks about 3"-3.5" taller. I think 6'4" or 6'4 1/2" is more likely for TIG. Either way, he played a great villain--too bad he doesn't appear in more projects.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/11
Between 6"4 and 6"5...194cm or 195cm
yoyo said on 9/Jan/09
he looks as tall as 195ish Tony Todd. This guy can't be lower 6ft4. trust me.
el toppo said on 6/Oct/08
This guy is a giant! In JC's Vampires he towers over everybody! (most pointless. post. ever!)
Nick00 said on 30/Oct/07
I'm pretty sure he's at very least 6'4 because he towers over James Woods or John Carpenter in the Vampires photos. Also, being such a tall guy he doesn't stand perfectly straight(like we average people do) which may take away 1/2 inch. Either way he is a huge 194-195cm man.
Red said on 6/Jun/07
Looking at him in Karate Kid 3, id say a legit 6 ft 5, he looks pretty big too, could anyone estimate his weight? Id give him 200 lbs (91 kilos) in KK1, in one or two 90s action films i saw with him id say as much as 230 lbs (105 kilos) in Hollow Point, im serious! A big guy, good actor too, underrated, has some decent action films.
Rooster said on 16/May/07
I met him back in 99 & I'm 6'2 barefoot...I was wearing combat boots with 1 1/4 heels...He was wearing some sneakers that did'nt have even an inch heel on them...He still was right around 6'5...I would say probably 6'4 1/2 barefoot...No less...
talker said on 20/Feb/07
in 1996 this guy in movie Hollow point with Donald Sutherland was clearly 6'5".

Sid said on 24/Aug/06
In early 90's action movie EXCESSIVE FORCE Griffith and 6-5 TONY TODD played cop partners. A lot of scenes of them together and seeing them closeup and head toe shots. Griffith was taller by at least an inch so he is a legit 6-5 if not more.

This guy looks almost exactaly like Steven Seagal in Karate Kid 3.
Big Show said on 15/Feb/06
In Kull the Conqueror he didn't look to be more than half an inch taller than Kevin Sorbo, but then again in Vampires he towered over everybody. I'd say 6'4.
