I’d wager a weak 5’8”.
Sestero seems to think he's 6 inches taller than Tommy and in SMH there was an interesting tidbit:
"I pitched (the story) to Tommy and he said, 'yeah it sounds like a good idea but I have one request: why don't you and I be same height in movie'," Sestero says.
"I'm about six inches taller... It had nothing to do with the story but I was like, sure why not."
As a result, Wiseau had platform shoes made and wore pants to cover them.
"And then he's like, you cannot show my shoes in movie, that is one rule."
Of course, his shoes are the first thing you notice.

Sestero I think could be 6ft1-2 range

Saw him and Greg Sestero the other day at a Room screening and had a picture taken with them.
Tommy was definitely wearing lifts, I'm 174cm and he looked to have at least 2 inches on me while Greg had about 4 inches on me.
Greg looked like a solid 6'1, Tommy I'd guess was a strong 5'8 although it's hard to tell when they're wearing lifts.
I'd also strongly recommend watching The Room in theaters, it's a unique experience and if you're lucky you'll get to meet the legend himself!

My guess about his height?
I cannot tell you, it's confidential.

Looked a half inch to an inch shorter than Franco at the Globes and on Kimmel. Is it footwear Rob?
It must be...he can't be only an inch shorter than those guys!

Rob, could you add Greg Sestero?

Sestero looks 6ft1 range to me

Lol, thanks for describing him correctly as "visionary". Can seem about two inches over Dave Franco and 2.5 over James Franco so this can seem a good listing.

I've met Greg Sestero in person, while he's listed as 6'1.5, he's no taller than 184cm.
Based on his pictures with Franco and Rogan I'd put him at 6'0.25. I'm 189cm and he barely reached past my eye level

5ft 8.5 was peak. He wears thick boots, 5ft 8 flat now.

The man, the myth, the legend! I wanted him to have his own page for a while now.

Looks like your friend is standing a bit closer to the camera than Tommy is.

Rob, from what source did you find him to be "Polish-American"? Wiseau is very secretive about his past and not even Sestero fully knows where he's from or how he financed his project. It wasn't until recently when Wiseau was in Jimmy Kimmel Show and there he mentioned being "originally from Europe" which doesn't clarify that much.
Editor Rob: sounds very Polish to me!

Greg can definitely give off a 6'2 vibe. I don't see him under 6'1... unless a tiny bit.

Oh hai Rob, thanks for posting him, I'd recommend everyone to see the disaster artist movie it's really good hauh

Greg could be a strong 6ft1. Hopefully he's not insecure and isn't bothered by the 5'5.5 Dave Franco playing him... has to be one of the larger height differences I've seen with regards to an actor playing a real person of late.

Possibly this for a peak height and little under it today? He's in his 60s.

I did not hit her, it's not true! It's bull****! I did not hit her! I did NOT.
Oh hi, Mark.
Dingus said on 10/Dec/17
This seems correct. A few years ago google had his heigh listed as 4'09".

I think this is too high, Tommy has always looked about 5'7" to me. In fact I know a guy from my university who met him at a screening of The Room in Chicago and also took a picture with him.
I pulled this from his Facebook page and I can confirm that he(the guy on the left) is just under 5'10" and he has an easy 2.5 inches on Tommy Wiseau in the picture.

Finally we got a page for him, been expecting one for quite a while now.

Hahaha! What an addition, Rob! 5'8" sounds about right.

5ft 8.25in? Haha what a story Rob
said on 10/Dec/17
YES! Tommy is on here. I am a huge fan of The Room and just watched Disaster Artist. I so knew that he was a solid 5'8.
@Rob Will Greg Sestero be on here, Google says he is 6ft 2 and it looks possible to believe.
Editor Rob: not sure Greg looks that high.

Oh hi Mark!

He can look 174cm range next to Franco.

Surprised by this listing; I always thought this guy was 5’6”-ish
Kevin said on 10/Dec/17
5'8 flat nowadays. He could've been 5'8.5 back when he filmed The Room but either way he's proof that a legit 5'8 isn't short.
I think Greg Sestero could be 6'1. He looked 1 inch shorter than 6'2 listed Greg Ellery in The Room and had at least a couple inches on James Franco.

The movie is so bad that's actually good. XD Also, this listing seems about right.
