This dude legit has the exact same long leg proportions as hugh jackman, might as well give this guy the same 6’2 listing as him at peak since this proportion is a little rare

I honestly feel like he passes straight through the 6'2 mark sometime around noon

Strange how imo he’s a weak 6-2 but actually looks taller than the Rock.

It probably was a beach scene, where the ground was uneven. No way is he taller than Rock.

I thought this guy must be at least 6’4 in baywatch, in some beginning scene of batwatch, he look easily 3-4 inches taller than The Rock and The Rock even have to look up to him.

Are you sure this guy is only 186 cm , he looked taller than the rock in Baywatch !!!
Editor Rob
6ft 1.5 is the range I thought he could look, though there was a time on Baywatch outside he looked taller than Rock.

He will be in the new "Candyman" film which was initially played by legitimate 6'5'' Tony Todd. The 6'3'' listings for this guy are bizarre. At least big Rob has it in the ballpark.

He’s certainly built in Watchmen

Solid listing. I can also see him being 6'2" if not very close to it.

Yeah 6 ft 1 1/2 seems good for him, however 6 ft 3 claims are crazy as he is an actor not a basketball player or a fighter!

I was under the impression that he claims 6'2" as his height but it'd be hard to determine, he looks at times like a weak 6'2" more so than a strong 6'1".

Do you use AM or PM heights ? I know it makes 1/2 to 1” difference.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't use earlier in the day heights, but after being up several hours.

Closer to 6’1 than 6’2
Progking said on 6/Jun/19
In Black mirror he looked a bit over 4 inches taller than 5'10.5 Anthony Mackie, so I thought his 6'3 claim was reasonable. I guess he just appears taller, as many 6'1 and change guys are guessed at 6'3

Rob, is 6ft2 possible?
Editor Rob
That would be the most I'd give him.
MD said on 6/Jun/19
I'm actually kind of surprised by the listing. I guess it's because I've not seen much of him, but I'd assumed the 6'3" listings were accurate.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jun/19
Aha! Thanks Rob! I've never heard of it!
Editor Rob
He did look a tall guy from the roles he has had, but 6ft 3 barefoot I cannot see, he was at least a couple of inches shorter than jason momoa in aquaman.
MrTBlack said on 5/Jun/19
Thanks for the add! I always knew 6’3” was bogus, I’m persobally gonna say 6’1” flat since Momoa towered over him.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jun/19
Yahya doesn't look old enough to have starred in 'Baywatch'. Is this photo up-to-date, Rob?

Editor Rob
The film Baywatch from a couple years ago 😉

He looks about 6 inches taller than zendaya in the greatest showman must be about 6ft 2.5 if she's 5ft 8.5
