Idris Elba looks a bit taller than him in the wire, The listings are good, 6'2 legit I think Idris is probably 6'2.5- 6'2.75

Elba - 190cm
Reddick - 189cm
Doman - 189cm
Harris - 188cm

He could look close to Idris Elba but there's enough shots where Elba looks to edge him out, if not by a full inch so it lines up to the listing. Also, I thought he looked a fraction under Bobby Cannavale in Ant-Man but it was hard to tell in those brief shots.

Idris did look taller than this guy in The Wire... And Idris himself claimed to be 6'2.5!
Around 6'2 is a good listing for Wood!

Rob, is a fraction over or under 6ft2 more likely?
He looked similar to Elba
Editor Rob: would have to watch a bit more, one day I'll get through the wire, it's on a big pile to get round to one day.

@anon Elba edged him out consistently on the show

Weaker 6ft2 guy than Reddick
anon said on 21/May/15
Isnt he the exact same height as elba surely? 6 ft 2.75 - 6ft 3.

Lol, there is a chance? I guess you never watched The Wire but Lance looks more than just 2 inches taller!!! When Lance was still listed at 6'2.5, i commented that Dominic looked max 6' wih him and could have been even 5'11.5... Now that he is back at 6'2, it seems impossible he's even near 6'!
said on 23/Apr/15
So, Rob? What do you think about that scene? I think Lance would edge him out and also (since you didn't answer on Dominic's page) you can see that Dominic is likely not over 5'11.5 with these tall guys!
[Editor Rob: there is a chance west is a 5ft 11.5 guy, but I don't think Wood is less than Lance.]

Reddick and Elba are both slightly taller.

His original resume lists him as 6'2". When he got big in Hollywood he probably thought he deserved an extra inch.

I always thought he was more a weak 6'2 in The Wire, even if he certainly can look 6'2 in some scenes! Rob, i know it's a tough scene to say who's taller, but would you say he looks similar to Lance here? Click Here
Btw, this is the only scene with Idris and Lance "in the same room" but of course it's impossibile to say the real difference between them from that clip! And you also can see that Dominic West looks more 5'11 range with these guys!
Sam said on 9/Apr/15
Yeah, I'd say he looks this range. Rob, could you add the under-appreciated Paid in Full to his credits?
