How tall is Tom Noonan

Tom Noonan's Height

6ft 5 (195.6 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films such as Manhunter, The Monster Squad, Heat, The House of the Devil, Robocop 2 and last Action hero. In a 1994 article he talked about how awkward it was aged 10 when he had sprouted to 6ft, an inch shy of his dad's height and in Stumped Magazine he said "Like 6'6" or taller". I met him at 2010's London Film Con (pic by Malcolm).

i guess he had bad posture, lower fottwear than rob thinks and/ or lost a tiny fraction when they meet. This guy must have been taller than 6´5. In movies at peak he did look at worst 197 cm and that is probably his real height. yes he is very skinny but still. pulled of 6´6 most of the time. 197 peak and 195 now.
IceCold1 said on 11/Oct/22
6'5 flat is too low. 6'5 1/2 is a better
Andrey200 said on 8/Jun/22
I reckon he's now the same height as peak Vince Vaughn, maybe 1/8 in either direction
ChristianAnthonyPerkins said on 7/Jun/22
He does look very tall proportionally, but there's no frame of reference in that pic to compare his height to.
ChristianAnthonyPerkins said on 6/Jun/22
Bo would most likly edge a peak Noonan, but I wouldn't quite put Noonan at 197 though.
Canson said on 29/Apr/22
@Rampage: yea he has thick shoes in that pic but could be say 195 today and peak 6’5.25” maybe
Andrey200 said on 28/Apr/22
Bo Burnham would edge peak Noonan but by a fraction
Andrey200 said on 10/Apr/22
197 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/22
Rob, maybe 6ft5½ peak?

Today still looks around 6ft5 Click Here
Tall Sam said on 2/Jan/22
I agree a 6’5.25” listing would be apt, like Stern.
Canson said on 1/Jan/22
@Berta: maybe a peak 6’5.25 like Howard Stern and 6’6 out of bed
berta said on 31/Dec/21
i cant really see this guy being under 197 cm peak. today he may be 195-96 but peak he could even look 6´6. i think he is underlisted.
Nik Ashton said on 10/Feb/21
He’s listed as 6’7” on some sites but they should have asked Rob, Tom included!

Hyper said on 17/Jan/21
How does Rory Mccanna and Dan Yeager compare to Tom Noonan, in person?
Editor Rob
there's not a great deal in it, I am sure in general many would class them as about similar range if they saw them up close.
Inches_to_cm said on 11/Nov/20
Hmmmm....growing to 6'0 at 10 and only about 5 inches afterwards....Rob is it possible for people to grow mostly before their teenage years? In high school (ages 14-18) I only grew around 3 inches (3.5 inches max).
Editor Rob
yeah a proportion will grow to 14-15 and that's it, although the vast majority at 15-16 will still put on height.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Nov/20
Shaq once quoted he was 5'10 when he just turn 12 so how true was Noonan being 6'10 at age 10? That makes him stop growing between 11-12 at 6'5. i found it BS. I don't think someone being a giant at age 10 would only grow up till 6'5, the least is probably stopped at 6'7-6'8 especially boy's height and the highest meant the kid would have giantism easily grow up and stop at 7'0 and over.
Nik J Ashton said on 3/Nov/20
It's great that he sprouted to within an inch of his Dad's height when he was 10!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/20
He’s textbook of what a real 6ft5 guy should look like...too many 6ft3 guys (sometimes even a bit less!) are trying to claim this and are getting away with it! I’d love to see the Rock or Dave Batista stand beside Tom and claim 6ft5 with a straight face
Alex 6'3.25 said on 29/Jul/20
One of the tallest guy in Hollywood, in his prime he was not under a good 196 cm for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/20
He made Arnold look average in Last Action Hero
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/20
Yeah I think 197cm peak is likely. Most likely did hit 198cm in the morning. He still looks 6ft5 today. Him and Stern
berta said on 26/Jul/20
i cant see how this man was under 197 at peak. i believe he was measured 198 but maybe early in the day
Canson said on 3/Jul/20
@Christian: I agree. Although he has sort of a lanky build. But I don’t rule out something like what you are or maybe a peak 6’5.25 with 6’6 out of bed. Very rarely is someone underlisted here but he Actually may be a candidate
Canson said on 3/Jul/20

OriginalAnon said on 1/Jul/20
No idea about now but Tom Noonan looked taller than 6'5'' in the 90s. 6'6'' was definitely believable.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/20
I think I'd edge him out today, although I could see him at 6'5" and change like myself, at his peak. Either way, he may be underlisted by Rob.
Vexacus said on 22/May/20
Prime 6'6 , same height of 'Christian 6'5 and something' currently.
Canson said on 6/Apr/20
@Rampage: he may have been a guy like Stern in his prime. 6’5 1/4-3/8. Maybe 6’5 1/4” then worst case and he lost a fraction today. He would probably have been 6’6 out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/20
Still looks about 6ft5 now,

dunno Rob, I mean could he have been 6ft6 in his prime?
Editor Rob
I am not sure about 6ft 6 prime for him. He claimed it though, but maybe he got it in a shoe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/19
195cm flat at worst today and 196-197cm prime
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 18/Aug/19
Nothing short of 197 prime imo
K.A 188 said on 8/May/19
Very tall guy from the pictures I have seen of him.But 6ft at 10 might be an exaggeration maybe he was 180 at ten and added more as he grew.
Solid 6ft5 though and not less
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Feb/19
@Dream I agree 6'5.25" peak for Noonan is a high chance. But not too sure if he have drop to 6'4.75" now i'm just wondering he maybe this now. Bo i can't leave my head thinking he look at least 6'5.75" but if Noonan still 6'5 there will be 3/4 inch between them.
Dream said on 24/Jan/19

Today, Bo would be a bit taller. Peak, I think Tom Noonan may have been 6'5.25".
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Jan/19
Bo Burnham may edge an aging Noonan out by an inch.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 21/May/18
Rob, maybe tweak his peak height to 6’5 1/8” like Bo Burnham?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/May/18
This picture from a few years away. 6'5 1/4 peak definitely.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/May/18
Still looks around 6ft5 today so a bit over it in his prime is highly likely (w/h 6ft6 out of bed).
Tall Sam said on 30/Apr/18
I agree that 6'5.25" range would be likely for Noonan at his peak.
berta said on 29/Apr/18
o dont believe under 196 legit at peak.also bad posture. he walks shorter than measured. 197 range peak
Yht said on 26/Apr/18
To be honest he looks only 6'3 best to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Mar/18
Howard Stern type range at peak
Canson said on 5/Mar/18
@Rob: his 6’6” or taller likely was a shoe height maybe morning or in a dress shoe. He could’ve actually been 6’5.25 as opposed to a flat 6’5”.
Editor Rob
There is a chance a fraction over 6ft 5
Canson said on 3/Mar/18
Peak was likely a strong 6’5 not sure today tho
Joah said on 8/Feb/18
I only said he looked shorter in robo2 he is obviously 6 5 on his worst day.
Still made everyone look tiny in knockaround also last action.
Seriously 200lbs at over 6 foot is small.
If i were 6 7 id weigh about 275 to 300lbs with low bodyfat.
berta said on 7/Jan/18
it must be extremely strange to be 6 foot at age 10. may be a litte exagertion. i thought i was tall at 13. i was 186 at that age. still think 197 peak is better. this guyh also have bad posture so probably measures taller than he looks.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 2/Jan/18
He'd edge out Tom Hopper for sure.
Junior said on 14/Oct/17
Noonan should get a peak height and current height he was 66 years old. I bet 6'5.25" and still 6'5 now.
Ted said on 1/Oct/17
Slightly over 6' 6'' peak.
berta said on 19/Sep/17
this guy have bad posture like most guys this tall and skinny have. i think 197 peak is about right. today he can be down to 195. he was probably measutred early in the day at 198 so i dont think he really lie about his height he just say his morning height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/17
Peak: 196-197cm
Today: 194-195cm
Mon said on 18/Aug/17
I know a 6'4.5'' man who was 6' by the age of 12 years, but that was likely aided by the beginnings of adolescent growth. Six foot at ten years old sounds like a boy who would end up taller than 6'5''. Noonan said nothing about early puberty so assuming he got a normal period of growth in his teens there is every reason to think he was pushing 6'7'' at peak when standing tall. The fellow is a serious actor and has no reason to exaggerate how tall he is, quite the opposite.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 3/Aug/17
Looks like he's on the steel side of 6'5".
fun dude said on 2/Aug/17
Most standard doorways are 6'8", I measured most around my old apartment and current home. anyhow this dude was an inch shy with shoes on of course in Manhunter. And in the fight scenes with William Petersen he has almost a foot over him and big bad bill is said to be 5'11" or so....Taller than most of the current " tall" actors whatever that means...I was 6 foot at age 13 so this dude did edge me out by a long shot....but I was an early bloomer....
Matt6'5" said on 6/Jul/17
He was excellent in Manhunter. His character was supposed to be 6'7 and he had said he went on a weight training program to look more menacing , he looked closer to 6'7. I think he was perhaps closer to 6'6" in his prime.
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
I agree with Christian he's a strong 6'5

6'6 out of bed
6'5.25 at his lowest
berta said on 11/May/17
out of bed peak 198,5 before bed 196,5 with a hanse of being close to 197. i think this listing could be atleast 1/4 to short i believe he heve not the best posture and measures little taller than he looks and at 59 he can have lost 0,5 cm
Sandy Cowell said on 6/May/17
I've just seen Tom in an 'X' File, playing a truly nasty piece of work! He made Mulder look small!
I've never seen that before!
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Apr/17
Tom is a good example of an actor whose roles are given to him because he's so tall. Unless they found a 6ft actress, it would look strange if he was in a film about a romance and even then, the viewers would be thinking how huge they are compared to the other members of the cast and the extras. I know I would!
It would distract me from the plot! Big time!
Tom gets 6ft5.5 from me, which is a little shorter than his probable peak.
S.J.H said on 21/Jan/17
No he was always 6'5 and just claiming 6'6 or taller in boots
Mark(5'9.25") said on 12/Jan/17
@Jordan87 to be fair, it can be hard to maintain good posture when easily over 6'4". I have met some 6'5"+ people who don't have the best posture.
Jordan87 said on 8/Dec/16
Looked like 6'7 In Robocop, but with Rob looks 6'3ish, the hell?
S.J.H said on 6/Nov/16
I'm not surprise an old noonan now could still edge out 195er like joe manganiello , tim robins , pablo schreiber and eli manning. Big 6'5
6n said on 25/Oct/16
Josh, look at stills of the cut scenes with the tattoo. He was surely well over 200lbs, which is not thin. If he looked 6'7, he likely was, or very close. At that height you can lose more, and posture can hide it too. Actors can have good reason to adopt minimising posture Standing tall in Knockaround Guys when middle aged, he still looked over 6'5''.
josh jeffords said on 21/Oct/16
This dude is crazy tall looked 6 7 in manhunter and very thin.
He has towered over holly woods 6fters for like 40 years.
Not a bad actor and seems like a good guy but likes to be a bad guy.
Can even be funny at times the shortest he ever looked was robocop 2 but that movie sucked,
he looked a strong 6 3 in it.
berta said on 18/Oct/16
i think he was close to 6 foot 6 when he weas young and was measured early in the day a little over that and thats the reason he claims 6 foot 6 ore taller. and now he is 196
6n said on 17/Oct/16
Noonan mentioned in an interview that he has issues with standing tall in everyday life and does so onsceeen only when appropriate to getting into character, as with the Sheriff he played in the Pledge for one.
6n said on 1/Oct/16
James Cromwell is the only actor who is comparable to Noonan in my opinion. I think that actors who are what people in the business call "tall tall" to an extreme will tend to play down their height. They wan't to be considered for a range of roles. In height terms, Noonan's peak was 3 decades ago and it must have been over 6'6''.
S.J.H said on 30/Sep/16
I have a feeling that noonan will edge out tom hooper , joe manganiello in person
6n said on 27/Sep/16
He looks a strong 6'5'' now, and likely was a strong 6'6''. at peak. Noonan's character in Manhunter (Tooth Fairy/ Francis Dolarhyde) is 6'7'' according to his driving licence. Standing tall,the young Noonan may have been slightly closer to seven than six feet tall.
Canson said on 5/Sep/16
@Christian: I agree and one thing people don't realize is that for someone who is the height like you are it is easier to spot people similar in height to you even in pics. You know what to look for more than someone who is further away
Christian-196cm (6ft5.25in) said on 20/Aug/16
Noonan is the same height as Howard Stern and myself I believe. A strong 6ft5 guy. I think it's safe to say that all 3 of us would look equal if we stood together in a photo.
Alex said on 9/Jul/16
In all his photo he looks very very tall, no doubt he is a real 6'5 or so. He gives an impression clearly taller than Hopper, Manganiello. Same range of Michael Jordan.
Sam said on 31/May/16
Yeah, I think at least a 6'5.25" peak listing is a good call.
berta said on 27/May/16
Rob is ther more chance of him being 197 than 195 peak? Cant see him shorter tjan me and im consider myself as very strong 196
Editor Rob
there is a chance of a strong 6ft 5 range yes. Very unlikely he was any less than 6ft 5 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Apr/16
Rob, is 6ft4¾ maybe closer today or are you convinced he still maintains a solid 6ft5?

I doubt he's just 6ft4 and the 6ft3 estimates are insane
Editor Rob
I can believe 6ft 6 in shoes and 6ft 5 barefoot. Today he may have dropped a little height though.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 12/Mar/16
Could have been a 6'5.5" peak? He looks like he's about 6'3.5" in the picture, of course, he's not standing well.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 12/Nov/15
Rob,taller than Hopper ?
Editor Rob
similar range yes.
berta said on 27/Oct/15
loos like a guy 6.6 peak and now a Little over 6.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/15
He still looks a legit 6ft5 now. Similar to Howard Stern. Don't drop below 196cm

"Peak height was 6ft 5½in (197cm)"
pablo77bar said on 11/Jul/15
This guy looked about 0.25-0.5in or ever 0.75in taller than a guy like Tom Hopper or Joe Manganiello
Sam said on 25/Jun/15
Rob, would you consider a 6'5.25" peak listing and a current one considering his age?
Editor Rob
eventually he might end up with that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/15
Rob could a fraction over 6ft5 possibly be closer if he didn't look under it?
Editor Rob
he was like 59 I think there, so it is very possible to have shifted a little bit by then.
Sam said on 18/May/15
I feel like Noonan could have peaked around 6'5.25", is the range of 6'4.25"-6'4.5" today.
120 said on 1/Apr/15
196 cm seems to be spot on, it might be possible that he might be 197 cm for his peak height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/14
6ft5½ in his 30's is possible. He's noticeably taller than the 6ft4 guys Rob is pictured with.
Sam said on 27/Oct/14
Rob, is a peak listing of around 197 cm possible? He just looks a little tall at times for a flat 6'5". Noonan, being in his 60s, has probably lost a bit.
Editor Rob
it is quite possible 6ft 5.5 20 years ago, even back 6-7 years ago a decent 6ft 5..
Andrea said on 17/Aug/14
Yeah, i have no doubts he's at least 6'5... He does claim 6'6 and he looks more 6'6 than guys like Rory Mccann who still gets listed at 6'5.5... Did he look shorter than a Clive Russell?
Editor Rob
there might be only half inch between russell and noonan, but both are shorter than a guy like cudmore who looks over 6ft 6. Rory may well turn out to be nearer 6ft 5 flat
Danimal said on 14/Aug/14
Editor Rob says on 28/Mar/14
This was the mugshot from x-files episode he was in:
Click Here

Rob, in that episode, the file has him written (not referring to the mugshot) at 6'4". It's one of my favorite episodes (the hearts one).
Danimal said on 14/Aug/14
Sam says on 30/Apr/14
For some reason to me in that X-Files mugshot, it looks like that's the biggest half-foot ever over the six foot mark. He certainly doesn't seem more than 6'4"-6'5" range if that shot was accurate.

In his file in that X-Files episode, it clearly lists his height as 6'4". I am not referring to a mug shot, but the written file on him. They do a close-up of it and it says 6'4" and that was 20 years ago, so that WAS his peak height.
Editor Rob
in person Noonan never looked as low as 6ft 4. If he measured under 6ft 5 I would be very surprised.

Look at these thumbs: Here. That guy is my height (his mate is 5ft 11) and got a better pic with Noonan, that's how I should really look but jenny had no interest in him so no chance of a double that day...

Rob, maybe 6ft5.5/197cm peak?

He's in his 60s and might've lost a bit
john b said on 9/Jan/14
Always thought he was 6'7 guess getting older his lost a little height. .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
Isn't his claim a bit ridiculous, Rob?

I mean he is very tall but 6ft6+ is out there. Not even the likes of Nonso Anonzie or Cliff Russell appear that big.
Editor Rob
no he really isn't shy of 6ft 5, 6ft 6 I'm not as sure of, but I wouldn't guess him less than 6-5
berta said on 11/Oct/13
i am 6 foot 5 and thats how i look beside somenone who is maybe 178. in movies he looks like 198. But judging from this photo he doesnt look taller than my brother who is 191. He really must drop 2 inches in this photo.
Sam said on 24/Sep/13
It might be worth mentioning above that his character is described as 6'6" in Manhunter but then (to add movie descriptions) you'd have to add things like Matt Damon being 5'9" in The Bourne Identity.
avi said on 26/Aug/13
Did you accurately match posture?
Editor Rob
he could stand an inch taller, he looks near 6ft 5 I thought
HellBoundPower said on 8/Aug/13
I've seen as tall as 6'7" listed for Tom. I think he might have been 6'6" in his prime. Probably 6'5" or slightly under at 62 years old. Looks close in height to Christopher Heyerdahl in Hell on Wheels, who I think is between 6'3" and 6'4".
Brandon said on 17/Jun/13
@ice keep in mind this guy is in his 60s so probably 6'5 peak and 6'4 now. on top of that hes slouching. theres no way hes as short as 6'1 sometimes height can create an allusion tall people generally look taller next to short people.
ice said on 17/May/13
its funny , im 6'1 and i look this tall next to a 5'8 person ?
Bard said on 6/Apr/13
6'5 peak.
TNTinFL said on 25/Mar/13
He appeared taller in Manhunter. I wonder if he had on some lifts, or if it was camera angles.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/12
Rob, would he edge out Tim Robbins?
Editor Rob
I believe he would
Lo sgozzatore said on 24/Oct/12
Yeah, i agree! You think he might be close to 6'6 in the morning?
Editor Rob
i'm sure he would shrink about an inch from waking

if he's a flat 6ft 4 I'd be surprised...
Ace said on 2/Aug/12
[Editor Rob: he looked more 6ft 5 than 4 I thought.]

Pierce Brosnan was 6 foot flat at 10 or 11 too. Its incredibly tall for that age. LOL at age 10 I must have been 4 ft 8 or something? If Rob was sure he was more than 6'4" then he was!!

John Cleese if im not mistaken mentioned growing to his full height of 6'5 at around 12 as well.
Hob said on 31/Jul/12
an episode of X-files had noonan at 6'4.5
tom said on 9/Jun/12
hard to tell,6.4+ imo.
steven said on 12/Jan/12
ChiasmataX, tom noonan only look 6'3 with rob. for advise we cant see their feet , but he is still not a full 6'5. at peak maybe he was 6'5 or near. 6'4.5 is closer to truth now.
ChiasmataX said on 21/Dec/11
My 6'6 friend had a full head over my 5'8.5 friend in pictures. Tom is probably 6'5 in person but according to this picture he's below 6'5 by a bit. If he's indeed 6'5 he would've had a near full head over you Rob.
jasperwazap said on 23/Nov/11

Rob, he looks closer to 6'3" than 6'5" to me here, did he give a 6'5" impression in person?

Either way 6' at age 10?! That is unbelievably tall. Robert Wadlow was 6'6" at that age!

Alex V. said on 31/Aug/11
Yeah Mathew, you're right, not the full inch, If Robbins is 195cm, Noonan is 197cm... my opinion of course. Regards...
Mathew said on 29/Aug/11
Alex V. says on 30/Jul/11
I do think, that Noonan is even taller than a guy like Tim Robbins for instance by one inch, similar to James Cromwell. In Wik* he is mentioned of being 6'6", but for me 6'5.5" is on the spot. Regards...

He's a little taller I think but I doubt he has a full inch on Robbins. .5" sounds about right.

Noonan really does look 6ft 5 I think in person.
Hansen said on 17/Aug/11
even old now noonan still looks taller than a few 6ft5 claim actor such as vince vaughn,tommmy tiny lister,newbie armie hammer. 3 of them were like just 6ft4 range. unlikely noonan were not a solid 6ft5er(as myself i am 6"5.) but i think he hover 194-195 alot. he had very little hair so at prime he is obviously apear e tiny bit or just doted 6ft5 level.

6'4". Was given this height on an episode of The X-Files MANY years ago. Was not over that height.
Editor Rob
I'd be shocked if he was just 6ft 4, I was sure he looked taller.

Why do you contradict yourself?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/11
Upstraight with the hat he'd be 197-198cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/11
6ft4.5-6ft5 max today...but I wouldn't go any lower than 6ft4
Patrick said on 26/May/11
Looked clearly taller than legit 6'3.5 V.D'Onofrio about 8 years ago in C.I..
Look very tall in any movie i saw him and more than 6'4 in any case. Now, that he be shorter today, what more normal?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/11
Looks 194cm at best...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/May/11

Ben Bailey is actually 6'4", Noonan is taller.
Lenad said on 1/May/11
Looks 6'2.5-6'3 in this pic. Up straight hes close to 6ft5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/11
194cm or 195cm looks more realistic
Sam said on 29/Apr/11
He's always been thin but for Francis Dolarhyde in Manhunter, he was pretty buff. In combination with his height, it made him look quite imposing in that role.
James said on 24/Apr/11
yeah Noonan looks like a small built guy certainly not strong or broad at all. I think though his height of 6ft5 without a doubt makes up for what he lacks in strength.
Aaron said on 20/Apr/11
It's funny how early bloomers like Noonan usually look enormous compared to their classmates, but later on end up looking not-so-impressive. Noonan's head seems kinda small for a 6'5" guy; I bet he basically stayed the same size for most of his teens.

I, on the other hand, was a late bloomer. When I was 16 I finally had Noonan's proportions, but I kept growing (especially my head and jaw) and now I'm 18, 6'5" and with a 25" head circumference. I bet Noonan's head's only 23" in circumference.

Which reminds me of how much we need a celebheadcircumference site.

Andrew, why would anyone want to be taller than 6'5'' anyway?
Andrew said on 16/Apr/11
haha at ten i was the tallest in my class at 1,57m and he was 1,83m xD
Well, now he'S 6'5 and I am 6'5, but the difference is, I am still growing !! WON!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/11
Looks 6"3.5(192cm) in this picture...with better posture he could be close to 6"5
James said on 7/Apr/11
This shows that photos can be deceiving becuase this guy is 6'5 in reality yet he looks 190cm with rob.
William said on 5/Apr/11
I went school with a kid who was also 183cm at 10-12 years old (we called him lanky Larry). He finished off at 6'3".

Tom looks like a strong 6'4" guy
Big Mike said on 17/Mar/11
that means his father was 6ft1 wow 6ft at 10 jeez I thought he was much taller than 6ft5 In Manhunter on the Dollarhyde license he was said to be 6ft7 217 pounds which for a guy his height is fairly a normal weight but he dwarfed everyone in Manhunter he's probably 6ft5 now because of his age

lolo says on 4/Oct/10
6FT AT 10, omg i was 4ft6 xD
I have started puberty late at 14 off a base height of 5ft1-5ft2. I was considered lucky, a lot of boys started at 10-12.I was 4ft6 at 10 so if I had started then, I would be no more than 5ft7-5ft8.
Mathew said on 28/Feb/11
Rob, he looks closer to 6'3" than 6'5" to me here, did he give a 6'5" impression in person?

Either way 6' at age 10?! That is unbelievably tall. Robert Wadlow was 6'6" at that age!

Editor Rob
he looked more 6ft 5 than 4 I thought.
James said on 24/Feb/11
with rob tom looks 188 or 189cm with lose posture. 193cm straigthend up?
James said on 9/Feb/11
Yeah he does look 6'3 with rob.
Mathew said on 26/Jan/11
Oh no, certainly not 6'5" in this picture unless he's bending his knees. I'll give him 6'3", maybe 6'4" in his heyday.
James said on 22/Jan/11
Dansons 188cm today and Tom is 195 or 194cm at worst nowadays.

With rob he looks 6'2.5 (189cm) strangely.
Vegas said on 12/Jan/11

6'4 today. 6'5 at peak

those shots with danson were less than a year ago, he hasn't lost anything Click Here

@Shaun It's not impossible that it was his real son. Look at John/Nick Cassavetes. Father was around 5'7, son ended up around 6'6. Could be from the mother's part of the family.

Theres no freaking way he was 6 feet at ten! Thats gotta be like a world record if he was.

Pierce Brosnan was 6 ft at age 11. Agreed it is freaky. Actually a guy I was in school with who ended up being 6'5" or so was 6'4" in the first year of comprehensive school at the age of 11. Johnny Blake his name was. Horrid bloke. His father was no more than 5'6". I suspected he was adopted as he was almost a foot taller than his father.
James said on 10/Nov/10
6'4 today. 6'5 at peak
Matt said on 9/Nov/10
Incase u guys wanna know i just compared his height to rob standing next the the height stand and made heads same size etc.. the top of his head came up to only 190.5cm... or 6ft3 exact though as u can see both of them have ofputting postures but i dont think hes really 6ft5
Alex V. said on 30/Oct/10
It's because Noonan is close to the camera however it's very cleary that he is at least, like Rob said, a strong 6ft5.
My opinion is very close to the 6ft6 mark.

Alex V. says on 27/Sep/10
Yup I agree with you Mandilo, in that picture Bailey seems a bit taller however look at You Tube for "They are made out of meat", by the end (5:35)you can see that they are both wearing flat shoes and looking very close in height.
My opinion is: Bailey 6ft6 Noonan 6ft5.5 or 6ft6.

I don't understand this post... I watched the clip and Noonan looks clearly taller. Actually a lot taller.
Sam said on 23/Mar/09
The license printed out at the end of Manhunter lists Noonan's character as 6'7" and 217 pounds. He does indeed look just over a head taller than Joan Allen.
D said on 16/Dec/07
He looked 6'7" next to Joan Allen (5'10") in Manhunter
AshnarLynx said on 19/Oct/07
He's 6'6. It says so everywhere.

Usually I don't watch tv serials, but the X-Files is the only one that really intrigued me.
In my country only 6 seasons were transmitted, so recently I've downloaded the whole serial from the net.
Jason said on 4/Jul/07
I thought he only looked 6'4'' max next to Duchovny, though that's one old memory. Yeah, I'll have to download it some time. Are you a big fan of the X-files?
Anonymous said on 3/Jul/07
Noonan played an imprisoned serial killer caught by Mulder long ago, but I recommend you to download the episode from the net.
Jason said on 3/Jul/07
What was that episode about? I only saw it the once in 1995 (I have a good memory lol). All I remember is Noonan's character was into basketball and had some kind of supernatural power, and something about a school?
Anonymous said on 2/Jul/07
I've just watched X-Files 4x10 (awesome episode) and in the mugshot he was 6'5'', but I think he was barefoot, because later he towered over Duchovny with at least 5''.
Jason said on 29/Jun/07
If I remember correctly, he was in an episode of the X-files and in the mugshot photo he measured 6'5'' in shoes.
RICHARD said on 28/Jun/07
He actually didn't look this tall in Robocop 2. He looked 6'2 MAX.
Ed said on 22/Dec/06
Sam, that would be interesting, but I'd guess Noonan .He's a bit skinnier as well,and I think that would add the appearance of being taller. He seems to consistently have better posture than Cromwell, who can slouch himself down to about 6ft3-6ft4. I saw Cromwell interviewed on Tavis Smiley, and he said he was almost 6ft7, but he rounded down since his height was always a roadblock for him.I don't know if Noonan is any smaller these days, but I would have thought he would have a higher peak height than 6ft5, at least 6ft6. Maybe Cromwell is taller?
sam said on 21/Dec/06
It would be interesting to see Noonan & James Cromwell on screen together, to see whom is now looming taller.
Ed said on 5/Dec/06
I watched Knockaround Guys recently, and Noonan looks huge in that movie. The top of Barry Pepper's head comes up to his shoulder line. Noonan was wearing cowboy boots, but they didn't seem to have huge heels. Still, he looked 6ft7 maybe more like 6ft8, compared to Pepper and Diesel, who had about 3 inches on Pepper. If Diesel would have been about 6ft2 with his special boots, then Noonan had to have been 5-6 inches taller. He came across on screen the way James Cromwell does, but even taller because of his skinny frame.
cynthia said on 11/Nov/06
He looks 6'6 to me, he towered over everybody in the movie Manhunter, great movie!
Jordan said on 13/Oct/06
In robocop 2 he was taller then hid whole crime gang. HE looks at least 6'5, could be 6'6

Called 6'6" in Manhunter.
