Wasn’t much shorter than Bruce Willis in die hard. He was probably vearing lifts.
Almost 180cm guy

Sadler has probably lost some height already, I think peak height 5ft 7.25 and the current height 5ft 6.75 would be a good list for him at the moment. Here are some photos of Sadler alongside Morgan Freeman from 1994: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
I guess 5ft 7.25 for the peak height of Sadler and 6ft 2.5 for Morgan's peak height would be good lists. Rob, what do you think?
it isn't impossible just over 7 and now under it

@ Rob - Does he have worse posture than you?
In person he is getting into 60's there, but I think he looks almost 5ft 7 in person that day.

5'7 is correct, any lower than that is not likely

Possibly 5'6 7/8s''
Sadler could have been a solid 5ft 7 and now a weak 5ft 7 range.

Somewhere between 169-170 cm.

I am happy with this listing!
Ed Kline said on 30/Nov/17
I can see him at 5'7 because Rob is often 5'8.1/4-5'8 3/8, and never exactly 5'8.

I never knew he was this short
Johan said on 11/Apr/16
Solid 5'7" in his prime. He was 9 in shorter than Seagal in "Hard to Kill" maybe more. He was wearing a bathrobe though and slippers. Seagal had a regular shoe.

He could have been around 5'8'' perhaps in his prime??

Could be like BIg G at 169cm claim 5'8 :p
177-178 cm guy said on 19/Feb/16
Doesn't look quite 5'7" here
julian said on 19/Feb/16
173 when young
Dicky curtis said on 19/Feb/16
there seems to be more than an inch difference between u 2
mrtguy said on 11/Feb/16
looks nearer 5'7''
said on 10/Feb/16
I'm surprised by this height. He always looked like a solid 5'8"; maybe in his youth. Was footwear similar Rob?
funnily the one photo I took for my own reference of my sneakers was me holding His photo ticket
...my sneakers that weekend are 0.7 range, his in that link didn't look much different.

5 ft 6.5-6.75 today peak solid 5'7
Byron T. said on 5/Feb/16
He definitely has lost some height with age. I'd say his peak height was 5'8'' and today he looks a little under 5'7.''
Len said on 5/Feb/16
Wow, would've guessed a bit taller for him, like 5-8 or 5-9.
He projects a certain sense of authentic menace in his roles, it's even more impressive that he's able to do it as a little guy.
Might still guess 5-8 for him when he was younger.
CD said on 4/Feb/16
5ft 7.5 peak Rob? Or could he look 169cm today?
said on 4/Feb/16
This is certainly more than just an inch...
Editor Rob: I think it is possible he has lost a small fraction, today a bit shy of 5ft 7
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
I always thought he was taller though judging by Shawshank.

Awesome...I haven't seen him in years

Rob, could you his credits? "American actor best known for roles in Die Hard 2, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Trespass, The Shawshank Redemption, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight, The Green Mile, Kinsey and on TV in Roswell and The Pacific."
His recent Random Roles reminded me he is one of the top modern character actors, really diverse roles.
[Editor Rob: one other role I actually like is Project X, one of my top 5 Chimpanzee movies.]

5'8 seems spot on for peak height but he's getting on a bit now.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 12/Feb/12
He looks short rather than just weak average. He'd be 1.70 m today.
MHouillon said on 26/Mar/11
5'7 - 5'7.5. 172cm max.
Jack said on 13/Nov/10
In Trespass, if you look at sadler's footwear, he's wearing 2-inch cowboy boots that give his height a boost by 2 inches making him 5'10" next to Paxton who is 5'11 - 6ft. This guy is totally 5'7" to 5'8"
guyfrommars said on 16/May/09
He was quite short next to 5ft11.5 Alexander Siddig whenever he appeared on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. 5ft7 maybe? Or a slight 5ft8?
GUK said on 13/Dec/08
Not 3 1/2 inches shorter than Bill Paxton in Tresspass, more like 2 inches
RB said on 16/Feb/08
Just saw Demon Knight today. 5'7-5'8 for Sadler. He was dwarfed by Billy Zane and Haden Church.
Anshelm said on 10/Jul/05
I once noticed in an episode of Roswell, that he looked shorter than Katherine Heigl (5'8" or 5'9" depending on the source; was 5'8" at age 14), I looked for his height in the IMDb, didn't find it, found 5'8" somewhere in the Web, and updated it.
