Zach always look 181cm not sure he is closer to 5'11 1/2.
Jkiller said on 29/Jan/20
Looked 182cm in Scrubs, wouldn't go any lower than that.
said on 23/Jan/19
Rob my coworker who is 176 cm has a photo with him and they're exactly the same height. I know he is not that "short" but he's definitely lower than this listing. I know it may look like im downgrading everyone on purpose but I'm not
I could maybe see the 5ft 11 argument for him, but less than that would seem impossible, given he's taller on the show than someone like Rob Maschio who in person is over 5ft 10.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
Zach is def taller than Nick Zano also listed at 5'11 1/2 but look at most 5'11.
Monkey knees said on 21/Jun/18
5ft 11 1/2 is spot on. Have worked on sets with him. Sadly, he is one of those who people wish were shorter than he is. He's a "tall" guy. Always looked it on scrubs, too.
berta said on 29/Apr/18
average guess seems very low. to me he looks like a guy that is 6 foot ore half inch under.182 is fine. but barely 181? i dont think he have ever been measured that low even is he was upp for 24 hours
DaveH1995 said on 16/Jan/18
He always had that lanky look. Watching Garden State right now, he looks quite tall in that movie. At least 182 but more like 183+ for some reason.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Nov/17
I thought he could give a strong 6ft impression at times w/h Donald!
KH said on 30/May/17
This guy is surprisingly tall. He is clearly taller then Faison. This is his minimum imo. Could be the full six.
James B said on 22/May/17
Looked 6'1 in Garden state. And that was without his hair all high up
berta said on 5/May/17
i thought he looked barely shorter than dr cox in scrubs i guess 182 could be right but 183 is a possibility to
Peter said on 14/Mar/17
He Is has same height like Donald Faison!
No more !
said on 13/Nov/16
Braff is really 181cm not 5'11.5
S.J.H said on 6/Nov/16
The previous listing seem more accurate that he is 181cm and looks it with 185cm barrack obama
c-mo said on 28/Oct/16
I think :
J.D. = about 181-182cm
Turk = around 180cm
Dr. Cox = about 184-185cm
Dr. Kelso = around 172cm
Todd = around 181cm
Janitor = around 196cm
Ted = around 177-178cm
Keith = about 184-185cm
Stan said on 27/Sep/15
Looks 5'9.5 to 5'10.
james said on 19/Dec/14
He was about 2 inches tall than 5'11 james Franco in Oz The Great And Powerful ..6'0 with footwear is about right
mediumguy said on 21/Nov/14
I walked by the guy in Boston - felt like I had 2-3.5 inches on him and I am 6'00 myself
Hypado said on 18/Oct/14
Zack Braff - 182cm
John C. McGinley - 185cm
Lonestar said on 18/Sep/14
This is accurate listing. Zach always push to look near 6feet
cole said on 7/Sep/14
I don't think he's over 5'11.5. With 185-186 cm Jim Parsons he can look 4-5 cm shorter, and he was often barely edged by 182 cm Tom Cavanagh ("Dan" on Scrubs), maybe they were the same height. 181-182 cm is believable for Braff.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/13
Zack Braff - 6ft/183cm
John C. McGinley - 6ft1.5/187cm

Guy is no taller than 5'10, shorter than his 179cm GF, Taylor Bagley.
said on 30/Jan/13Click Here
here is link tom is close to braff and he towers him. plus him and john c mglinsley r staring near eachother there not to close but if u look closey there pretty same height so i think braff may be shorter then 5 foot 11 and maybe john c mgliney a downgrade to 6 foot
bodwaya said on 30/Jan/13
sorry to bother you again on rob but tom cavangh has claimed to be 6 foot and everytime he guest stars on scrubs he towers braff by more then 1 inch now iam doubting braff being 5 foot 11.is braff was 5 foot 11 he wouldnt tower him by this much. Another thing u calim john c mcgliney from scrubs is 6 foot 1 yet when tom cacvang guest starts on scrubs there a pretty much same height. So is it possible john c mglciney needs a 6 foot downgrade too
said on 23/Jan/13
u didnt answer my previous post rob
[Editor Rob: ritter is kind of walking past and could have lost a little in posture. In the 70's on something like Waltons, John could look tallish.]
said on 17/Jan/13
rob u claim ritter is 5 foot 11 like braff yet when he guest stars on scrubs he is clearly taller then ritter.is it possible ritter is a flat 5 foot 10 or braff is 6 foot here is the link look Click Here
skip to 1:16 u will see
Hew said on 14/Jan/13
5'11.25 I think, looks taller due to the hair.
said on 30/Nov/12
Rob do u agree because of his hairstyle and build that he can give off a 6'1 impression on TV?
[Editor Rob: with hair he could look a decent 6ft range...]
Silent d said on 5/Oct/12
182cm. Cox is 6 foot 1.
1999PhantoM said on 1/Sep/12
Braff is 6 foot. Flyyn (janitor) is 6 foot 5. Mcginley (Cox) is 6 foot 2. Chalke is 5 foot 8.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 13/Aug/12
If he's 6', Neil Flynn is at least 6'6!
Comicbookmaster17 said on 12/Aug/12
he's 6'0, he completely towers over Ken Jenkins Scrubs.
Franz181 said on 13/Feb/12
Sarah Chalke is listed at 5'8" and 5'7" many places, but she's actually 5'6". Also, Faison looks taller SOMETIMES, and he's 5'10.5" ~ 5'11", Braff is therefore anything between the 5'10" and 5'11.5" range, with 5'11" (+0.25") the most likely, and 5'10" the least likely.
GartGray said on 11/Feb/12
He's barely taller than his 5'10.5 model-girlfriend! With a footwear advantage. 5'11.5 in shoes maybe, 5'10-10.5 barefoot, roughly the same for Faison. Granted, there are some scenes where Braff seems as tall as 6ft McGinley, but at the Ganitor's wedding, Braff and Faison stood next to eachother on even ground with equal sandals, Braff was slouching a bit, and Faison was doing something wierd with his neck...
Braff - 1.79 - 1.80m
Faison - 1.78 - 1.79m
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Jan/12
5'11.5 is really the max for him, he's not over! Neil Flynn is too much taller than him!
Chris175 said on 13/Sep/11
6-0 for sure, see rob with the todd, braff has to be more than 5-11, he is consitently taller than the todd.
Mathew said on 14/Aug/11
James says on 25/May/11
Neil Flynn 6'4.5 (194cm)
John C. McGinley 6'0 (183cm)
Zach Braff 5'10.75 (180cm)
Donald Fiason 5'9.75 (177cm)
Fairly realistic. Flynn could be 6'4.75" or 6'4.25" as well I suppose. Braff could be the full 5'11" though.
KindofBlue said on 9/Aug/11
No way he's 6 feet. Maybe 5'10", to be a bit generous.
It may be because of his proportions, and it's hard to gauge his height using photos of his upper body only or pix taken with wide angle lenses, but he doesn't seem to be much taller than Kelso from the Scrubs photo, which would put him about 3~4 inches taller than Kelso (5'7", but really seems like 5'5") and make him 5'10 ish. Also from watching Scrubs, when placed up against other daily objects like scooters, elevators, doorways, tables, vending machines, etc, he really didn't strike me as a 6' guy. And no way McGinley is 6'2", that makes him as tall as Will Smith! He seems more like 6' or closer to 5'11" to me. Really this height inflation with Hollywood actors is crazy.
said on 17/Jul/11
rob do you think donald fiason and john Mcinley could be due for a downgrade as well since Zach is not 6ft?
[Editor Rob: I think faison having basically no hair is still near 5ft11]
said on 9/Jul/11
Zach Braff is 5'10.5, no more than 5'11.
His girlfriend is 5'10.5: Click Here
In these pics he has footwear advantage and only just edge her in height.
James said on 15/Jun/11
Yeah actually I think Zach Braff is probably 182cm not as low as 180cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/11
5ft11.75/182cm at worst
Mohammed said on 12/Jun/11
I would say that he's 182 cm tall. Cox is 184, and turk is 180.
James said on 25/May/11
Neil Flynn 6'4.5 (194cm)
John C. McGinley 6'0 (183cm)

Zach Braff 6"0(183cm)
Donald Faison 5"11(180cm)
lordrandall91 said on 18/May/11
Next to sacha baron cohen, he looks solid 4 cms shorter! If hes 6 foot, sbc gotta be 6'4": improbable!
Richard said on 17/May/11
He could be 6 feet even in the morning, Braff is a skinny guy and many skinny guys appear to be taller such as Leonardo DiCaprio. He is probably 5'11" in the evening with no shoes. I did an experiment for several days and realized my height in the morning was half an inch taller than in the evening. I am 6 feet tall in the evening and gain a half an inch in the morning. This seems to have something to do with expansion and contraction of the discs between the vertebrae in my spinal column.
andy said on 17/May/11
I think all the actors' heights on scrubs are inflated
Let's take Neil Flynn as a reference...ok so he's 6'5 . Cox is about 4-5 inches shorter , which would put him around 6', JD is about an inch ( or maybe slightly more than that ) shorter than cox , so that would put him around 5'11 and turk is about 5'10 ( maybe even a hair under 5'10).
James said on 4/Apr/11
Maybe 5'10 1/2 and gives off a 6ft illusion with his hair?
Alex said on 4/Apr/11
He seems pretty tall but not 6 foot
Mathew said on 16/Feb/11
Doesn't strike me as a six footer. I'd estimate 5'10 3/4", 5'11.5" sounds generous enough.
James said on 16/Feb/11
He looks 5'10 on scrubs cause Neil Flynn eyes are 2 inches above his head. i think this guy is a lot shorter than he makes himself out to be.......
Anonymous said on 22/Jan/11
He only looks 5'11" on Scrubs.
smoggy said on 10/Dec/10
looks 5,11 near brendan fraser in an episode of scrubs
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Dec/10
Donald Faison is 5"10.5(179cm) tops....
Lozzer said on 11/Jun/09
On the Jimmy Kimmell show, 6 foot Kimmell had about 2ins on him!
JJ said on 10/Jun/09
This guy's 5'11
Big King said on 6/Jun/09
Zach Braff looked 5'10" in Scrubs but I could go with a weak 6'0" for him.
Big King said on 31/May/09
Braff looked like a little kid beside 6'5 1/2" Neil Flynn.
James said on 11/May/09
A 6footer who can look 6'1.
Milosh said on 9/May/09
A solid, even six-footer.
Josh.J said on 20/Apr/09
T.J. you cant really tell if he's filled out just from that picture! especially suits give the impression that your more built then you are.
T.J. said on 28/Mar/09
looks alot more "filled out" in this pic then he does on tv.
he looks really thin and wimpy on tv, here he looks big and bulky
Lucifer said on 27/Dec/08
Yes 6ft is good.
The dude said on 15/Dec/08
Not that there's much of difference between my guess and the height on here, but I think he might be 5' 11.5" without shoes.
said on 9/Nov/08
with paged 6'3 sasha baron cohen... Click Here
these are really NOT 3 inches!!
Lozzer said on 11/Oct/08
6' is the perfect height and nobody suits it more than Zach!
said on 23/Sep/08Click Here
183 Zach Braff next to 163 Michael J. Fox. Zach is 20 cm taller. 6 ft is corect height.
Hugh said on 22/Sep/08
I know James and I think i was stupid downgrdading him.
Hugh said on 18/Sep/08
Okay Neil Flynn is 6ft5-6ft5.5, Braff is 6ft, and McGinley is 6ft1.5
reality said on 30/Aug/08
claiming he is taller than 6' is absurd, please stop. Why would any male claim to be shorter than he actually is? 6' is definitely the ceiling on his height. Also, that is probably his height with 1'' shoes.
Anna said on 17/Aug/08
I dont think hes 6'0.He dosent seem that tall.I'd say hes more like 5'10.
Ray said on 23/May/08
Hugh, if you're claiming Flynn is 6'4.5" tops then there is no way in hell Braff is over 6'. Braff looks at least 6" shorter than Flynn. Saw an episode yesterday and Braff came up to the bottom of Flynn's nose. That means 7" diff. I strongly believe Braff is 5'11".
M.P. said on 7/May/08
He looks much shorter, like 5'9", but I guess that makes sense. He probably weighs as much as a 5'6" girl, though. Somewhere like 140 lbs.
emily said on 1/May/08
watch the episode that zach braff wrote and narates, he says how tall he and Neil are and some of the others also
sean said on 11/Apr/08
no, flynn is 6-6
Hugh said on 28/Mar/08
I think Braff is 6ft0.5, McGinley 6ft1.5-6ft2, Faison 6ft and Flynn 6ft4-6ft4.5 tops.
BERTA said on 13/Mar/08
my guess would be 184 he have a tall body
Height Fiend said on 11/Mar/08
He looked 2 inches smaller than Jonathan Ross, about 6 inches shorter than neil flynn and there is a pic of him on Getty images with Robert Downey Jr is a very well known 5'8, so say RDJ is wearing 2 inch heels then he is at 5'10 and there is barelly an Inch never mind 2 in it. He is also alot shorter than Hugh Laurie maybe 3 inches....i dont even car about Zach Braff in any way, shape or form but since i know Downey is 5'8 and partial to the odd lift i thot i could help u guys out. 6'0 is too much, 5'11.5 at most ( incidentally, McGinally is 6'0.75 TOPS )
Anonymous said on 10/Mar/08
but bill lawerence, the guy to the left of braff is listed as 6-3 lol, i honestly do think that its neill flynn who is messing the whole thing up, hes at least 6-6, and braff is no less than 6-0, i dont see where you get the inch and a half from james, the difference between braff and mcginley is less than an inch
Ray said on 6/Mar/08
JD looks tiny in that photo. If he was a legit 6' (i.e. barefoot, afternoon height) he would not look that small. That would mean the average height of the rest of the male cast would be around 5' 11". You can even see him stretching his neck out. He looks 7" under Neil Flynn. My guess would be AT BEST 5'11".
said on 5/Mar/08
just thought i would post this to see what you all think of the heights of the scrubs cast :), heres my judgement using this:Click Here
(photo showing all lead cast members apart from sarah chalke)
im going with this:
Cox: 6-1 (maybe 6-0.5)
Elliot (not in the pic): 5-7.5
Kelso: 5-8 (in his younger days maybe 5-9)
Ted: 5-10 (bad slouch)
RobertJ said on 11/Feb/08
"And even if Rob won't downgrade him, it doesn't mean that he actually is 6'0.'
Yes it does.
Ray said on 12/Dec/07
I've never accepted 6' for Braff. He looks 5'11". John C. McGinley I have pegged at 6' even. He was a full inch below Carson Daly (6'1"). There's about an inch between Braff and McGinley. I would put money on 5'11"
chris175 said on 5/Dec/07
im watching scrubs at the minute and im thinkin that 6-0 is correct, no taller though, saga there is a possibility that he is 5-11
said on 29/Nov/07
RobertJ it seems like you don't want to look over the evidence i provided.
Your opinion must be seriously biased...you didn't even answer my question 'cause it's obvious that Zach doesn't look 6'0 with 6'2.5 Hugh Laurie, plain and simple.
I don't know in what dream you saw just 2" inches between them.Click Here
And even if Rob won't downgrade him, it doesn't mean that he actually is 6'0.
RobertJ said on 20/Nov/07
Get over it Saga, he's 6 feet and he'll never be downgraded.
said on 20/Oct/07
Still 2" inches??Click Here
Mmh..i don't think so!
Seriously, i can see 3-4" inches here.
Laurie can't be taller than 6'2.5, therefore Braff is not 6'0 barefoot, i'd say more like 5'11-5'11.5.
Though I acknowledge that Zach's hairstyle makes him appear taller sometimes.
said on 20/Oct/07
No RobertJ, Hugh Laurie's head is always tilted and he's often hunched.
If he stood up straight he would be easily 3" taller.
Not to mention Zach's hairstyle which is pretty deceiving.
Watch it again:Click Here
RobertJ said on 17/Oct/07
I see two inches. 6 feet seems right but I could of swore he looked shorter in garden state.
said on 13/Oct/07
6'2-6'2.5 Hugh Laurie looks 3" good inches taller, Zach is 5'11.5 in my opinion.
James said on 20/Aug/07
Zach Braff looks an inch smaller than John C Mcginley (same size with his hairstlye) so he's around 6feet.
RY said on 27/Jul/07
i was lucky enough to meet this dude once in LA and i gotta say hes at least 6'0 if not a little taller like 6'1. Im 6'1 and i couldnt tell the diffreance between us, we were exactly the same height.
Steve said on 5/Jun/07
I just saw him coming into my building in NYC...I'm nearly 5'9" he's bigger than what I expected but not that big. 6' is legit.
Joe said on 3/Jun/07
Zach is definitely 6'. I met him 2 weeks ago two days before he did SNL.
G-unit said on 1/Jun/07
he looks tall, could even be a bit taller than 6'
bam said on 31/May/07
he looks huge in the pic glenn, definately 6-0.
Chris said on 31/May/07
He definitely looks like a solid 6'
glenn said on 30/May/07
thanks for the info rob.
said on 29/May/07
could be james.hard to say.
[Editor Rob: he said six feet exactly, I just hadn't added the quote to top which I'll do now.]
James said on 29/May/07
Glenn, I thought he was 184cm
Anthony said on 28/May/07
6' looks right. Looks a bit like Mr. Bean in the photo.
glenn said on 28/May/07
this was the zach braff party where jason bateman was at.
D. Ray Morton said on 28/May/07
Great shot! Hard to tell how tall from the photo, but the expression on his face here is funnier than all of the episodes of Scrubs combined.
glenn said on 28/May/07
6ft is correct.
Drew said on 28/May/07
How tall did he look Glenn? Hard to tell from the pic.
l0ck n l0ad said on 28/May/07
ROFFLEZ i cant get over his face in the pic so funny, awesome pic glenn
btw dj qualls did look just about an inch taller than braff on scrubs and he's listed at 6'1" here. dj qualls has always looked like a tall skinny dude and braff wasn't more than an inch shorter.
Chris said on 28/May/07
Glenn-What is your estimate on Braff?
Crissy said on 5/May/07
I think he is taller then that because when I saw him in person he looked pretty tall. Because then I was like 5'6 and I still had to look a ways up at him
Drew said on 26/Apr/07
Don't judge anyone's height by comparing to Leno. Leno can look anywhere between 5'9" and 6' on the show, depending on the shoes he wears. Anyway Braff is definitely 6 feet even.
MD said on 24/Apr/07
I didn't see 2 inches. I saw an inch, at most, but it was one of the poorer comparisons as the meeting at the beginning of the interview was rushed, and at the end of the show they didn't stand by each other.
Viper said on 24/Apr/07
It looked like he had 2 inches on Jay Leno just now. So 6-0 it is. He looks tall.
Tommy said on 11/Apr/07
If he says he is 6 feet even, that means he is probably 5'11 barfoot, from my experiences, people usually count their shoes that are under 6'3", im 6'4 barefoot and i can guess people height right on the money
Jesse said on 28/Mar/07
I wonder about Ken Jenkins'(aka dr. Bob Kelso) height.He can sometimes look as short as Sarah Chalke(5'7), and sometimes 2 inches taller or more . Probably no more than 5'8. what do you think?
Plingen said on 10/Mar/07
Then Dr. Jan Ïtór must be incredibly tall.
Anonymous said on 1/Mar/07
Rastus, Tom would obviously be lieing if he said he was 5'10", because everyone knows he's is about 5'7"-5'7.5". 5'10" he never looks,and it's obvious he isn't. Zach Braff definitely looks 5'11-6 foot even.
MD said on 22/Jan/07
As Borat would say "wowie!"
sam said on 19/Dec/06
Cruise is the same kind of "5'10"" as Bob Dylan, but anyway I would take Braff's word for it that he's 6' feet even. That's pretty much exactly what he looks.
Rastus said on 18/Dec/06
While I agree that Braff looks 5'11"/6', let's not get carried away with taking celebs at their word, eh? Why would we need this site if Tom Cruise walked onto Jonathan Ross's show, said 'yeah, I'm 5'10"' and we all believed him? Dangerous ground, my friends!
Chris said on 8/Nov/06
Aha...well 6 feet it is:)
lappers84 said on 21/Oct/06
the guy who plays the janitor (neil flyn is 6'5) and i agree at 6' he's only a little shorter than john c mcginley and theres no way he's shorter than 6'2
Mikex said on 10/Oct/06
I was surprised how big this guy looked alongside Ross, very little difference in height. He looks about 5'10'' in Scrubs but is definitely 6 ft in real life. The janitor on Scrubs who hates Braff's character must be gigantic as he towers over him by several inches.
Barry said on 6/Oct/06
I'm sure plenty of other people saw this but on tonight's Jonathan Ross show, he confirmed himself as 'six feet even'.
sunbeame said on 6/Oct/06
Said on the Jonathan Ross show tonight that he is "6 feet even".
RobertJ said on 6/Oct/06
Is he really 6 feet? In Garden state he looked a max 5'10'' next to natalie portman. She wasn't wearing heels in any scenes as far as I can tell.
Drew said on 16/Sep/06
This guy is six feet even.
MD said on 13/Sep/06
I agree with the listed height (or maybe exactly 6'0"), but nearly anyone looks big next to Regis.
woodruff said on 12/Sep/06
I just saw Braff next to Regis Philbin on that morning show, and Braff is enormous, compared to Philbin. Philbin is about 5' 5", and Braff no kidding hulks over him by more than a six inch margin.
said on 13/Aug/06
Hey, if Sean Hayes is 5'11 according to this website and dmeyer's sighting, would the pic of himself and Zach Braff 2/3 the way down the page confirm Braff at 184, I don't know what footwear either are wearing, but Rob, would you say that's a 1 inch difference or 2? Click Here
Dave said on 7/Aug/06
People here will not be happy, but I am thinking he is no bigger than 5.10 and a 1/2. In today's Perezhilton (8/7/06), there is a photo of him with Jacinda Barrett (5'10) and Rachel Bilson. Barrett is wearing three inch heels (maybe four if generous) and is towering over him by three inches.
James said on 29/Jul/06
I've met Zach and there's no way he's below 6. 2 I'm only 5. 6 and he towered over me
Anonymous said on 7/May/06
I think somewhere between 183-185cm... Probably 184..
Brett said on 18/Apr/06
he looks not quite this tall next to Rove on the 2004 guest gallery Rob
ds said on 5/Apr/06
He's listed as 183 or 6' everywhere. But I agree with the 184.
CS said on 28/Feb/06
I saw him at the Rosevelet in Hollywood and he look really tall. I would have to agree with 6'2.
lappers84 said on 24/Feb/06
to be honest braffs height confuses me a little, McGinley and DJ Qualls are both 6'2 and yet he's at roughly the same eye level as both and yet Scott Foley whose supposedly 6'1 looks genuinely taller than Braff. I'm definitely confused.
lappers84 said on 23/Feb/06
i'd certainly agree with that, theres barely any difference in height between the two, unless McGinleys smaller than he says, more like 6'1
David Welsh said on 23/Feb/06
There are scenes in Scrubs where him and John McGinley are eye to eye, and as McGinley looks 6'2 in most other places, I reckon Mr. Braff might be slightly taller.
