Can you please add his co-star Kang Ho Song from a Taxi Drive (2017 film). Kang Ho Song is one of the biggest names in acting in Korea and should definetly be added to this site. He edged out Kretschmann so there wasn't much difference, I'd put him around 5'9.5".

According to this image (Click Here
), Tom Cruise's height (Click Here
) is about the same height as Thomas Kretschmann's. But we can clearly see Cruise's shoes are about 1–4cm (0.4–1.6in) taller than Kretschmann's. Tom Cruise's height ranges from 169–172cm (66.5–67.7in), so we can estimate Kretschmann's height is 170–176cm (66.9–69.3in). My guess is 173cm (68.1in).

I have a question Rob. Do you think Thomas could be around 5’7 possibly? Cause he looked kinda shorter in King Kong.
He has never seemed that short in films.

i just saw him in the new movies jungle. i didnt realise he was this height. i thought he could have been just over 180. but beside the harry potter guy i guess everyone can look little taller than they are.

Do you think he could be closer to 174 Rob?
[Editor Rob: not sure he's just 174 mark.]

Looks the same height as Cruise in Valkyrie and Barely taller than Bruno Ganz in Downfall. I give him 5'8 if Cruise is 171 and Bruno Ganz is 169. Shows how good camera work can fool u, he looked as tall as Adian Brody in The Pianist but nowhere close to 6'0. And a very good looking man for his age. Shorter men do look younger.

Could be a low as 1.77, if you ask me ... Next to McAvoy, Serkis and Brody he gives a 5'9 appearence. Still a cool actor!

He looks pretty tall as that vampire overlord in Blade II

Lol, what's his official height? 6'? So he should be as tall as Adrien Brody; Click Here
Quite impossible if you ask me; he looks 2' inches taller than Andy Serkis (5'8 official; looks 5'7 most of the time)

Black wears a lot of magic shoes.

All the other guys in Der Undergang were quite tall, so I also guessed about 5'10''-5'11'' for him. I still reckon he's strong 5'11''. Never 6' though!

He doesn't look this height in Der Untergang, more like 5'10...

The height difference looked like more than 3 inches in most scenes, especially when the two are standing on the dock next to each other.

Strange that Jack Black was only three inches smaller in some scenes, did he wear lifts? Or is Kretschmann not 5'11.5?
