Bill Murray's Height is 6ft 1in (185 cm)

American actor best known for roles in Ghostbusters, GroundHog Day, Scrooged, Caddyshack, Stripes, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Rushmore and Lost in Translation. He once commented on his height, saying "I'm 6 foot 3 in my boots" when talking about the NBA in 1995. Lucy Liu made Bill out to be enormous, claiming in Maxim Magazine "He's tall, like, 6'4", and I'm 5'3."

Comment on the Height of Bill Murray

Rob do u think he lost any height
Editor Rob: a fraction probable. He could have went from strong 6ft 1 to just under 6ft 1
dmeyer said on 3/Nov/15
He looks 4cm taller than norton who looks 2cm taller than willis
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/15
Rob, I agree w/h your post from 2005.

He does look 6ft2 in Lost in Translation
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/15
He really did look 187-188cm in Caddyshack.
Ghostbuster said on 9/Oct/15
As a lifelong Ghostbusters fan, my observations are that Ramis had in excess of inch on him minimum and it wasn't just an impression from his huge hair.

Murray was very close equal to Aykroyd in height but in some scenes looked a shade shorter. If you consider the "Nestle Crunch Bar" scene outside the New York Public Library, here Murray looks certainly shorter than both co-stars.

He was noticeably shorter than Sedgewick Hotel Manager Michael Ensign who is listed on this site at 6.1, and Murray and co are in their big paratrooper boots in this scene so speculate to your hearts content.

In Ghostbusters II, in every scene with Sigourney Weaver, Murray's considerably taller than her, whereas Aykroyd is only a little taller than Weaver who wears small heals. Bill seemed to grow two inches for scenes with Weaver. The only explanation I can conclude is Murray wore small lifts maybe an inch. He's over 6 feet maybe he was 6.1 but certainly no taller.

in aloha he was roughly the same height as cooper, could be heading 6ft0.75in-0.5in now and at peak 6ft1.25in
Sam said on 21/Sep/15
I may be a weaker 6'5" than Stern and that is similar to how I look next to 6'1" range guys.
Sean said on 2/Sep/15
With 6'5.25" Howard Stern. Stern seems to make everyone look lower than their stated heights.

BT said on 31/Aug/15
@Editor Rob: Is the plan to give him 6'1.25 peak and 6'0.75 current when he looks to be dipping under 6'1 a bit? Surely he could have dropped at least a fraction by 64.
[Editor Rob: not impossible he could end up with that mark.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/15
@Sam: Ramis could have been 6ft2+ though.
Sam said on 30/Jul/15
The original Ghost Busters is a film where he looks to be barely hitting the 6'1" mark, a solid inch under Ramis and no taller than Aykroyd. Something like The Spy Who Knew Too Little, he can look near 6'2". There's a good chance he be 6'1.25" at peak still.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/15
Near 6ft2 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Apr/15
He still looks 6ft1½ in recent pictures...sometimes even 6ft2!

Rob, do you think Bill might be getting advice from Brad Pitt and George Clooney on where to get to decent heeled shoes in Hollywood?
Dingus said on 4/Apr/15
Looked like he could have had a peak height more akin towards 6'01.50" or 6'01.25".
Sam said on 3/Apr/15
It must be stated that with the Ghostbusters, Murray looked as listed, definitely no taller than Akroyd and edged out by Ramis.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/15
I think he was 6ft1½-2 peak.

maybe the ground is uneven.
Lorne??? said on 27/Mar/15
I agree he generally looked more 186-187cm than 185cm at peak, but Rob is right, he was never 6'2 range, look at him with Chevy Chase who has now said he was "like 6ft3.5" at the time.

I do think we should bring him up to 186, though. Rob says he might have occasionally wore lifts, which, if true would explain him looking closer to 6'2 at times. I've always thought he looked 186-7, Rob had him 6'1, but you could argue 6ft1.5, the 1.25 would be a good compromise. He was marginally taller than Akroyd, who certainly wasn't under 185.(If he was, that is bad news for Jimmy Fallon!)

I'd say 6'1.25" range for him. Even today he looks like the amount of height he's lost is minimal.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/15
Yeah he can still look 186-187cm today. I don't think he's really lost anything substantial. Maybe a centimetre tops.

But Dmeyer are you certain on 6ft2 peak?

Evry one on this page think 6'1.5 is closer he desserves aleast 6'1.25 and peak 6'1.5

Rob Bill in his 60s looks 6cm over willis 3-5cm over 182-3cm Norton , to me this Guys looks 6'1.25-1.5 today maybe he lost only 1cm and was 6'1.75-2in peak , 6'3 in a 1.25in boot peak is very believable , rob this Guy needs a serious upgreat , as he looks óver 6'1 at over 60 how can he be listed at 6'1 also was taller than aukroyd peak so aleast 6'1.5 listing
[Editor Rob: I doubt he was near 6ft 2, with a guy like chevy chase I think around 186cm is more likely than 188cm.]

He's still at least 6ft1 today. In Monuments Men he easily has about 3in on Clooney (bare minimum 5ft10½ now).

Damn, anyone could wear them, if h does!

He looks very close to Harold Ramis in Stripes.

I'd say 187cm peak

I would have guessed 187cm at peak 6'1.5. He seemed to edge Dan Aykroyd out in the ghostbuster films.

rob how tall do you think wes anderson is? he is listed 6'1 in most sites but he looks taller than murray in recent pictures. maybe murray is closer to 6'0 nowadays.
[Editor Rob: I'd say 6ft 1.]
cole said on 17/Feb/15
@Editor Rob: Besides the fact that he has looked 186 cm, a 64 year old man is likely to have lost a little height, so maybe you should just give him the 186 cm peak height as he still to this day pulls off 185 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/15
Murray looked 6ft1-2 in Mad Dog & Glory. Towered over Robert DeNiro and at least 2in taller than Uma Thurman.

Rob, could 186cm peak be possible?
[Editor Rob: 186 is never impossible for Bill]
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jan/15
Actually in some scenes he could look 6'2 range with Goldblum!
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jan/15
He looked 6'1.5 with Owen Wilson though.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jan/15
Rob can you add The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou? Goldblum had him by 3-4 inches.
[Editor Rob: at times in Ghostbusters I think Murray could indeed look in the 186 range.]
A6'1Guy said on 27/Jan/15
Any possibility for a 6'2 height peak? Or maybe even 6'1.75?
[Editor Rob: Chevy Chase admitted he was 6ft 3.5, I doubt he was only 1.5 inches taller than Bill from what I've seen of them together.]
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 16/Dec/14
I was standing close to him at TIFF 2014 and he was little bit shorter than me.So 6ft 1 is a good call.
cole said on 15/Dec/14
He looked about 3 cm taller than Edward Norton in 2012, both wearing regular dress shoes. Bruce Willis in comparison looked at least 6 cm shorter than Bill and 3 cm shorter than Norton. I'd guess them at 185, 182 and 179 respectively. Norton stood a little behind in a few shots though, so near 183 is possible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Dec/14
Murray could look 6ft2 beside Jordan...
The shredder said on 5/Dec/14
Michael Jordan looked not even 6 '5 " next to him in Space Jam , So Mike is 6'4.5 or Bill 6 '2 over 6 '1 ". .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Dec/14
He looked nearer 6ft2 in the 80's I think. Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters and Scrooged.

Rob, I'd give him back the 6ft1½(187cm) peak height.
Sam said on 4/Nov/14
I wonder if age is finally starting to catch up to Murray, near Frances McDormand recently in Olive Kittridge, he could seem a bit sub-6'1" in some scenes.

I'd bet his body weight was 180 lbs. range in younger years, 185-200 range the last 15 years or so. Looked a bit heavier in Rushmore, slenderer in Broken Flowers.
Danimal said on 23/Oct/14
He had an inch on 6'1" Dan Aykroyd. Was close to that 6'2" mark in his younger days.
mike said on 22/Oct/14

Rob , what do you guess his weight for peak? 175 ?
[Editor Rob: possibly a bit more]
The Exorcist said on 25/Mar/14
@mcfan: I found that video. Hopefully the link works.

I have to concede that Bill and Dan are the same height, or that the minimal difference is indistinguishable. I am satisfied with the evidence in the SNL Superhero video.

So now that we know that Bill and Dan were near-enough the same height, how come Bill looks over 6'1" nowadays with Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, John Goodman, George Clooney and Matt Damon? Well, Rob's comment to Sam could possibly be the answer.

Bill Murray: 6'1"
Sam said on 25/Mar/14
It is true, in both Ghosbusters and SNL, there's no height difference between Murray and Dan Aykroyd. Also, I thought Ramis clearly edged out Murray by almost an inch in Ghostbusters..its only recently that Murray has started to pull off seeming taller, from Rushmore to The Monuments Men, he can seem 186-187 cm, 185 cm-ish back 30 years ago...weird.
[Editor Rob: from reading stories and talking to actors who have worked with Bill he does seem a guy who may pop a lift in his shoes for fun.]
The Exorcist said on 20/Mar/14
@mcfan: The first video with Aykroyd, yeah, they do look pretty similar in that. But in the heckler video with Letterman, he only looks shorter than Letterman because Letterman is closer to the camera. The same rule applies to videos at it does with photos. If someone is close to the camera it will make them appear taller.
berta said on 17/Mar/14
He is 63 years old he is clearly taller than john goodman who is listed 185. Looks about 2-3 cm taller. But goodman because of his weight is probalb yonly 184 now but that makes murray 186,5 and if goddman is 185 then murray is almost 188. At the age of 63 he may have lost 1 cm. I think Peak height should be 187. Not a full 188 but close to it and now strong 186. There is something with his posture in the neck that makes me think about the alexander technice. SO he probably havent lost more than 1 cm if he even have lsot anything. But eitherway. Lowest i can see os 186. And on a good day 187 For now!! In peak maybe 0,7 cm taller ore something like that
The Exorcist said on 11/Mar/14
@Steve Freeling: I agree that Murray is taller than Aykroyd, but I wouldn't put any money on a full inch.

Aykroyd with footwear advantage:

Aykroyd with footwear and standing on stones advantage:

@jtm: I would put Damon at 5'9.5" or 5'9.75".

@mcfan: I haven't seen "Stripes", but I have seen Ghostbusters many times. Ramis looked to be the tallest Ghostbuster, but I don't think he had a full inch on Bill.

Harold Ramis: 6'2"/ 187 cm
Bill Murray: 6'1.5" / 186 cm
Dan Aykroyd: 6'1" / 185 cm
Steve Freeling said on 8/Mar/14
Murray is clearly the same height as Candy and Ramis in Stripes, so either they were also 6' 1", or Murray's also 6' 2". I'm guessing the the latter, because in Ghostbusters, he looks an inch taller than Dan Aykroyd, who is 6' 1". You decide.
jtm said on 7/Mar/14
i think damon is also listed too high. there is too many eveidence that he isn''t 5'10 or even close to it. murray isn't taller than 6'1 and there is a possibilty that he is slighty shorter nowadays.

186 cm, Rob?
Sam said on 19/Feb/14
I think 186 cm is a better call at least than 185 cm. He seems to be the be within a half inch of Hugh Bonneville's height.

The Horse of FUNK said on 14/Feb/14
I've always felt Murray was a genuine 186-187cm guy, or 6'1.25" - 6'1.5". Judging by his posture, demeanor, and personality, he probably doesn't give a toss about height and just says whatever he's nearest to, which would be 6'1". His comment about being 6'3" in boots would correlate with that since boots would give him around a 1.5" boost, bringing him damn close to 6'3". I'm 5'11.5" and my combat boots put me at 6'1".

Murray's height now days? Hell, who knows. The guy has aged poorly, and I mean POORLY. He looks 15-20 years older than he is and I'd be surprised if he hasn't lost any height.
jtm said on 14/Feb/14
that is just another evidence that clooney is not 5'11.
kevin said on 12/Feb/14
hmmm after seeing the pics with clooney and others im starting to think he could be 186cm...
berta said on 11/Feb/14
He is about 1-2 cm taller than john goodman in all the pictires of them together. John goodman maybe is 184 now but murray must be in 186 range. He always looks it Atlest. I would say 187 but 186 is safe bet. He is 63 years old and still looks it

Rob, he is definitely taller than 6 foot 1!! as you can see in This video Click Here he is at least 4cm taller tan David Letterman! So Letterman needs a downgrade or Murray an upgrade!! Please respond Rob
[Editor Rob: they look pretty similar]
cole said on 20/Dec/13
He just looks taller than 6'1 if Edward Norton is really 6ft and Bruce Willis is really 5'11. I'd say 5'11.5 (maybe 5'11.75) for Norton and 5'10.5 for Willis if Murray is 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/13
Towered over 5ft8 Andie McDowell (who was in heels) in Groundhog Day.

I think him and Aykroyd were 6ft1-6ft2 in their prime.
Sam said on 13/Dec/13
Rob, what convinced to downgrade Murray? Back in Ghostbusters, I really think he comes off as no more than 6'1", he is shorter than Ramis and no taller than Akyroyd or Hudson. However, I don't know if he's worked on improving his posture, but he just seems taller on screen and in pictures more recently (Rushmore/Lost in Translation onward). Also, I have a family friend who met him and noted how much taller he seemed in person, 6'2" or 6'3" they thought. Strange that he gets sighted as taller than he seems, the opposite of the usual that celebs are often shorter than one thinks in person.
nyctruth718 said on 10/Nov/13

If ever you want an example of "pure lust" on a face, watch Bill Murray's face in Ghostbusters. He's literally creaming for Sigorney!!
Arch Stanton said on 29/Sep/13
6'3" LOL. Watch Ghostbusters. 5'11.5" Signorney Weaver is in flats and he had 1.5 inches on her in the film. This is spot on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/13
I think Murray is 186-187cm, judging by the pics with 180-181cm Bruce Willis and 183cm Edward Norton.

Maybe he hasn't lost anything?
cole said on 30/Aug/13
I would say there is 4 or so cm between him and Norton. In my mind Norton is a 182 cm guy, and Willis can look 178-179 cmrange these days. Murray could actually be 186 cm. I don't see a 2 cm difference between Norton and Murray. So if Murray is really 185, Norton is 181 cm range.
greg said on 30/Aug/13
Gotta say that Murray looked slightly taller than Letterman last night in his Liberace entrance. Would have thought he's a tad taller than 6'1", but hey what do I know. Doesn't exactly look to be shrinking fast, even at his age.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/13
Looked a 187cm guy for most of his career.
Harold Ramis looked 188-189cm

Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 27/Oct/12
I watched again some of his movies and I have to change my mind, the guy seems to be a bit above 6'1 in truth.

He looked pretty tall in Scrooged, definitely 6'1.25, clearly taller than legit 6'0 John Glover.
He was an hair taller than 6'1 Aykroid but not quite as tall as 6'1.5 Ramis in Ghostbusters.

Plus, he seems to hold his own very well also next to the huge Tim Robbins (who is nothing less than 195cm).

What do you think Rob, is 6'1.25 possible? He seems to be a very strong 6'1.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 13/Oct/12
Was 6'1 and is still 6'1, this guy never shrinks.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/12
Weird, I actually thought 6ft2-6ft3 in Lost in Translation but I think it was probably the short cast that gave the impression. He really doesn't look under 6ft1, even today.

Looks about 6'0" in "Lost in Translation".

Your estimates are too high.

I have met Bill & danced the night away with him at a friends wedding in May of 2011. Bill is taller than he appears on film. My own father is 6.2 Bill is at least that tall. It is also true that Bill has excellent posture. He does not appear stocky. He is actually He was not wearing lifts. The man is tall.
Silent d said on 1/Feb/12
Murray had an inch footwear advantage over letterman and they were about the same height. I think murray had an extra lift. 185cm. I think regis was wearing lifts to make him look taller next to bill and david.

Assuming David Letterman was 6'1.5", it appears that Bill really was around 6'1" in his prime:

I always thought he was 6'2.5". He seems like a big guy to me. I think 6'1" is a bit low. At least 6'1.5".
giantmidget said on 28/Jul/07
"6'3.5 maybe but otherwise just 6'3."

How could he be 6'3.5" or 6'3" when in Caddyshack he was easily 2.5" shorter than 6'3.5" Chevy Chase? Are you people just pulling numbers out of your ass? Is there something I'm missing, because the man's never looked over 6'1" to me.

I too have met him. I was at the "Wild Things" premier and was surprised to see how tall he was. I am 6' and I would say 6'3'' seems dead on. He was very nice. I love when stars don't disappoint.
Taylor said on 17/Jul/07
Glenn if you think this guy is 6'2 upsize him.
Sam said on 13/Jun/07
Tall and thin. I do think 6'4 or 5 is far too high. Also 4 Harold Ramis. 6'3.5 maybe but otherwise just 6'3.
Cat Stevens said on 12/Jun/07
He looks 6'2
Sam said on 12/Jun/07
I met him in New York 2 years ago. We both at eye level. 6'2.5 barefooted, 6'3 in shoes.
PJ said on 27/May/07
Met him in a restaurant in Piermont, NY. 6'1 is accurate ... I'm 5'9 and we were both wearing normal dress shoes.
TheFary said on 18/May/07
yes he looks 6'1-6'2
Height Tracker said on 4/May/07
Yeah Elliot and Murray looked close in height in Groundhog Day; Murray may have been an inch taller but not more.
TheJerk said on 2/May/07
If Elliot is that guy in Groundhog Day like I think he is, I've seen him listed at 6-0, Jon Doe. He can look a bit less.
Anthony said on 2/May/07
Elliot looked close to Bill's height in "Groundhog Day" if I recall correctly.
Viper said on 2/May/07
Murray is an Enigma.
Jon Doe said on 1/May/07
He looked huge in Osmosis Jones especially when you compare him to Chris Elliot.
How tall is Chris Elliot anyway?, I've always been confused about him, I keep thinking he must be tiny but I keep seeing him around big guys like Bill Murrey and Ray Romano.Can I make a request for his height listing?
timber said on 29/Apr/07
I think Editor Rob's original listing, 6ft 0.5, is correct. watched What About Bob again recently, and he appeared no taller than that to me.
TheJerk said on 27/Apr/07
He said 6-4? Really? 6-1 isn't overly generous I agree, but 6-4 would be for sure.
billy leger said on 26/Apr/07
I saw him in an interview he said him and Harold Ramis are both 6 foot 4
derek said on 15/Apr/07
With all this 6'2 talk for him which I do agree he looks, I think his current height should be listed at atleast 6'1.5 ft
John said on 14/Apr/07
No taller than 6'1" in his prime straight out of bed. And that Lucy Liu quote just proves something that I've long suspected: women have no clue when it comes to measurements.
john said on 30/Mar/07
I've noticed a weird thing with the heights of the ghostbausters actoers.
In certain scenes, one will look taller than the other, this happens mainly between Ramis and Akroyd.
But as someone said, Murray appears to be over 6'' because he maintains his posture.
Viper said on 28/Mar/07
I dont know. It would explain how he looks much taller in certain movies over the years.
HellBoundPower said on 26/Mar/07
To me Bill Murray doesn't seem like the lift wearing type. He never seemed like the kind of guy that cared about his heights (to me anyway). I'd say 6'1.5" barefoot.
Branco said on 18/Mar/07
and how Murray can be even 6-1,5 when next to goldblum,down on that picture,he hardly looks 6-1.c'mon guys,i mean-6'5,someone must be crazy here.maybe 187 at his peak,now 184-185.
James said on 17/Mar/07
You should upgrade him to 6ft1 and a half at least.
glenn said on 12/Mar/07
i saw him look 6-3.but 6-4 is too high,as most aggree on 6-1,6-2.
boxingfan said on 11/Mar/07
This is the only height on the site which is WAAAY out, IMO. Mrray is a legit 6'4".
Anthony said on 4/Mar/07
My mistake again, didn't look 6'2 next to Hoffman.
Anthony said on 4/Mar/07
True. But whatever it is, Bill did not have a full head on him, which is genrwally he differnece between a 6'2 man and a 5'5 man. Yeah, that's a foul-up on my part. But Bill didn't look 6'1 next to Dustin. Compare them during the scene when they're walking downt he street, I believe they were looking for a necklce or something.
Viper said on 4/Mar/07
Anthony, wouldnt Hoffman be taller since the average head is 9-10 inches?
Anthony said on 2/Mar/07
I watched "Tootise" last week, and Bill plays Dustin Hoffman's roommate.I compared them in their scenes very intently. Bill did not look more than 6'1 compared to 5'5.5 Hoffman. Hoffman came up to slightly above his lip, which is about an 8 to 9 inches difference, which puts Bill around 6'-6'1. I really think 6'1 even is the perfect estimate for him. Lowest is 6'0.75.
Misha said on 22/Feb/07
Murray is tricky to guess correctly, as evidenced by the absurdly high in-person estimates of 6'5" (could he have been wearing enormous lifts in those instances?). If I had to pin him down within the half inch, I'd go with 6'1.5".
It it should be pointed out, though, since it is not obvious to everyone, that a person who is 5'3" will give a much less accurate estimate of someone who is
6'1" than someone else at 5'11" or 6'3" whose gives an estimate for the same person.
mcfan said on 16/Feb/07
Get a guy with great posture and they can sometimes look taller than they actually are. Bill Murray is a tall guy at 6'1 and has great posture.
Antron said on 5/Feb/07

6'4'' Jeff Goldblum (head slightly nodded down) with Bill...
Murray does appear to be about 6'1"

Bill does come off as a guy who'd wear lifts,e ven if he is already legitimately tall.
Viper said on 3/Feb/07
Yeah, it wouldnt shock me If he wore lifts.
Glenn said on 1/Feb/07
6-5 is extreme,but that prooves he can look 6-3.
Viper said on 1/Feb/07
Hell, we even have a couple of 6-5 estimates in person on here.
Anthony said on 31/Jan/07
I agree that 6' is rediculous. But 6'3 does seem a bit high to me. Bill generally has good posture in films, as mentioned, so he can appear taller.
Anthony said on 31/Jan/07

Murray has looked nothing lower than 6-1, and as tall as 6-3 before.
Glenn said on 29/Jan/07
No,your ridiculous Austrian for never meeting him and making your assumptions.he can look 6-3.6ft? now thats ABSURD! he is 6-2 minimum.
Austrian said on 28/Jan/07
LOL 6'3 and 6'4 is absolutely ridiculous

6'-6'1 seems about right
Austrian said on 28/Jan/07

Anthony said on 9/Jan/07
I thought Ramis looked taller than both Murray and Aykroyd throughout the entirety of "Ghostbusters". I think Ramis might be one of the few stars in need of an upgrade. He's 6'2 flat minimum, possibly 189 cm.
Glenn said on 2/Jan/07
I only saw him twice.1990,1991.he seemed 6-3.
Pat Bateman said on 2/Jan/07
There´s a pic in our sales manager´s office with him and Bill. The sales guy is a legit 6´2" and Bill looks slightly taller than him in the pic.
S.J said on 30/Dec/06
but dreyfuss is a Small Guy he's Like 5,5 but i didnt believe it when i saw that bill murray was 6,1 he seems Like a 6,3 or something at least from what i saw in Lost in translation but i do agree he looks smaller then 6,3 in groundhogs day
Anthony said on 22/Dec/06
"Stripes" and "Lost In Translation" were the only times Bill ever came across as taller than 6'1 to me.
Height Tracker said on 19/Dec/06
He's always looked about 6'1" to me too, except for Stripes. I could have sworn that in some scenes of that movie he was even or perhaps slightly taller than Harold Ramis, in addition to only being a maximum of 2 inches shorter than John Larroquette. Going by Stripes alone I would probably have guessed at least 6'2" for Murray, but he looks 6'-6'1" in most of his other stuff. Strange.
Viper said on 19/Dec/06
I thought he looked 6-1 in What about Bob. Hes consistently looked 6-1 since at least the early 90s.
Height Tracker said on 18/Dec/06
lastttiger, he definetely looks 7 or 8" taller than Dreyfuss in that movie.
Anthony said on 17/Dec/06
Yeah, I caught "Groundhog Day" last night, and he looked 6'1.
Anthony said on 4/Dec/06
Wathced Bill once again in "Scrooged" last night, and he appeared to be about 6'1 there. I agree with D.Ray's analogy. 6'1 barefoot and 6'2 in shoes. Couple his height in shoes with his good posutre and he can come across as 6'3. But I don't think he's 6'3 or even 6'2 without them.

James said on 4/Dec/06
This guy has never looked that tall to me. Besides, if you watched Groundhog Day, you'd notice that 6'2" Stephen Tobolowsky had at least an inch on Murray, which puts him at... 6'1 I guess. He's always had good posture though, so it would be reasonable for people to think he's 6'2".
Anthony said on 24/Nov/06
D. Ray - I think Bill should've won for "LIT". A lot of people say he should've won for "Ghostbusters" as well. Ass or not, Bill rules.
Viper652 said on 24/Nov/06
This guy has looked between 6-1-6-3 in everything.
D. Ray Morton said on 23/Nov/06
I agree. 6'1" barefoot, 6'2" in regular shoes, 6'1½" in flippers. With the special Team Zissou helmet (the one specially-equipped with rabbit ears for piping in music), I'd say 6'3½".

Best admired from a distance, but I still feel he deserves an Oscar - someday, for something.
Anthony said on 22/Nov/06
Just finished watching "Lost In Translation". Bill looked a solid 6'2 throughout the entire movie. Hard guy to pin down. I still say 6'1-ish barefoot.
Elio said on 11/Nov/06
Looks noticably taller than ~5'10" Owen Wilson In 'Life Aquatic'. And only a couple of inches shorter than 6'4"+ Jeff Goldblum.
ralph said on 11/Nov/06
Why he is listed everywhere at 6'0.5"? He always looks 6'2" and more.
Danimal said on 9/Nov/06
Jordan WAS between 6'4.5"-6'4 3/4" at his peak. NEVER taller than that.
Alex said on 20/Oct/06
Jordan I doubt is as short as 6'4. 6'5 is my guess on Jordan. 6'5 plus shoes= 6'6 listing.
Danimal said on 3/Oct/06
Jordan is 6'4"-6'4.5"
sf said on 2/Oct/06
I won't give Jordon taller than 6'4" or so...saw him standing next to Jimmy Smits and was barely taller.
Anthony said on 2/Oct/06
Oh right, he's 6'5, sorry. I still think Bill in barefeet is about 6'1.
Viper652 said on 1/Oct/06
The problem is MJ is not 6-6.
Anthony said on 30/Sep/06
In "Space Jam", Bill also looks 6'3 in comparison to 6'6 Michael Jordan and 6'9 Larry Byrd.
Anthony said on 23/Sep/06
I just got finished watching "Stripes", and must say in quite a few shots Bill did indeed look 6'3. And that's the fact Jack!
Anthony said on 10/Sep/06
I was watching some of "Caddyshack" before, 6'3.5 Chevy Chase was about two inches taller than him.
Viper652 said on 6/Sep/06
Bill Murray looked 6-3 in Stripes to me.
Anthony said on 5/Sep/06
"Ramis was a cool 6'3" to 6'5"."

Ramis is tall, but I really don't think he's that tall. I haven't seen the movie, but someone said Murray looked about an inch taller than Ramis in "Stripes". If Ramis was between 6'3 and 6'5, wouldn't that potentially put Murray between 6'4 and 6'6? I don't know, I could be wrong. I'd probably need to see the movie.
Viper652 said on 5/Sep/06
Looks like Murray might have been 6-2 years ago, and now just 6-1. It would make sense how he could appear 6-3 at times, especially in person.
Danimal said on 4/Sep/06
Ramis was a cool 6'3" to 6'5".
Danimal said on 3/Sep/06
Bill Murray was ALWAYS taller than Akroyd on the old SNL. In every single skit.
Anthony said on 2/Sep/06
In "Ghostbusters", there are some shots where Aykroyd looks taller, and others where Murray looks taller.
Danimal said on 1/Sep/06
Viper, Randy is 6'4", which would put Bill at 6'1".
Anthony said on 30/Aug/06
Well, that one guy above said Murray was quite cool when he met him. Maybe he's cooled down in the last few years. Anyway, I think Bill might be just under 6'2. As I said, he only looks a half inch shorter than Jarmusch, so maybe peak 6'1.5 or 6'1.25.
D. Ray Morton said on 30/Aug/06
A gifted man, but not a nice man.
sam said on 30/Aug/06
I don't think Murray has ever hid that he's a prickly dude. The story goes that Harold Ramis cast Murray instead of Tom Hanks in Groundhog Day because Hanks was "too nice" to play the character.
Viper652 said on 30/Aug/06
I just watched that Bill Murray movie with Randy Quaid and Geena Davis. Randy had at least 3 inches on him, and Bill was barely taller than Davis. So he looked 6-1 in that film.
Danimal said on 29/Aug/06
Bill appears to be very cocky and extremely sarcastic, so yeah, he's an ass at times ;).
Anthony said on 29/Aug/06
So my assumption is right. Bill's an asshole.
D. Ray Morton said on 29/Aug/06
"Real asshole."

Absolutely right.
Danimal said on 28/Aug/06
It's possible the man is just shy of 6'2".

[Editor Rob: I might give him an extra cm]
Glenn said on 28/Aug/06
Real asshole.cant find photo at a tribute to Robert Deniro dinner.I actually was in the of the most bizzare things happened as TV camera crews filmed and photographers watched Bill tell me I looked like I had a wig on.I then say,look at you,you need a wig.actual ad lib comedy act by the 2 of us.I swear.
Anthony said on 28/Aug/06
He's definitely not 6'5.
Viper652 said on 28/Aug/06
Ive read a couple of 6-5 sightings for Bill actually, even one on this site. Sounds far fetched though.
Glenn said on 27/Aug/06
Couldnt agree with you more Viper.I thought he was 6-3 when I met him 15 years ago.
Viper652 said on 26/Aug/06
Bill can look anywhere from 6-1-6-3 in his movies.
Danimal said on 23/Aug/06
Letterman in 1982 was a FULL 6'2" and probably that 6'2.5" measurement he claimed was him first thing in the morning. In any case, I give Murray over 6'1", but under 6'2".
Anthony said on 18/Aug/06
Yes, I thought Letterman was a tad taller than Murray as well. I still think Murray is 6'1 even and and Letterman might be 6'1.5, with the 6'2.5 claim being in shoes. If you look at the clip of Murry on Letterman from 1982, you can tell that Letterman is a tad taller.
mcfan said on 17/Aug/06
I think Letterman was a tad taller, but Dave always claimed to be 6'2.5. Well, Peter O'toole was 1.5-2 inches taller than him so I doubt his 6'2.5 claim. Letterman might be 6'1.5.
Anon said on 14/Aug/06
Check out this video: Click Here

He looks taller than the Letterman (6'2").
Glenn said on 10/Aug/06
He was or,still is 6-2.
Anthony said on 8/Aug/06
I always thought Bill was a legit 6'1. Him and Dan Aykroyd were more or less the same height in "Ghostbusters" (also if you look at the first pic in mcfan's post there's really not much of a difference between them, if any at all), he looked about an inch taller than Weaver in the film as well (I personall think Weaver was an even 6' when she was younger despite the 5'11 listing she is given).

Shame I can't find a decent pic with him and 6'4 Goldblum in "The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou" (the only one I found was posted already and wasn't too great in that they weren't on equal plains), because that could probably give us a great indication of what Murray's true height really is.
Rut said on 11/Jun/06
LOl, in what about bob he played opposite Richard Dreyfuss who is only about 165 cm.
Matt said on 10/Jun/06
Yeah, he's a pretty tall guy. I'd say about 6'1- 6'2 sounds accurate. You can tell he is a tall guy in Caddyshack and What about Bob?.
Elio said on 1/May/06
I'd guess 6'2".
Anonymous said on 30/Apr/06
3" shorter than chase always looked right to me. He looked at least 4 inches taller next to Owen Wilson in Life Aquatic which they say is 5'10.5"-5'11" but Owen's height many people say that he's really only 5'8" or 5'9" and just wear big healed footwear because he wants to be tall likes every movie star is pressured to be. Could Bill Murry really be 6'3". Could be his peak but he's definitely at least 6'1" at his peak.
Editor Rob said on 28/Apr/06
You could argue for him 6ft 2, if you believe Jim Jarmusch (who says "I'm 6ft 2" himself)...
Viper652 said on 28/Apr/06
I just watched What about Bob, and he looks no taller then 6-1 in that movie. Strange how he can look taller though.
mcfan said on 27/Apr/06
If you watch "Caddyshack" Chase is 3 inches taller than him. I know Chevy ain't no 6'6.
J. said on 25/Apr/06
This piece on Bill Murray describes him as '6 foot 3', suggesting that "that slouch has tended to efface the fact": Click Here

Intrestingly, he sometimes can look that tall.
Gonzalo said on 6/Apr/06
I always thought he was tall, near 6`2. Maybe he is a little bit shorter, like 6`1. Anyway, if he is 6`1 he looks taller than other 6`1
mcfan said on 16/Feb/06
Height Tracker...Bill Murray was born in late 1950. Are you saying that he was 6'2 at 30 y/o in Stripes and down to 6'1 at 33 y/o in Ghostbusters. Ramis looked to me to be taller than Murray in both films.
Height Tracker said on 14/Feb/06
Mcfan, I agree that Ramis seemed taller in Ghostbusters. However, in Stripes the height difference between Murray and Ramis was very small and at times Murray actually appeared taller. I think that this was due to the fact that Murray may have actually been pretty close to 6'2" at his prime.
Viper652 said on 9/Feb/06
Yes, Bill Murray certaintly looked 6-3 in Stripes. He also looked huge in Caddyshack as well.
Dominic said on 8/Feb/06
This guy is pretty tall. I'd say 6'2 bare foot.
Height Tracker said on 27/Jan/06
I agree with Anonymous; if you watch Stripes, Bill Murray looked taller or at least the same height as Harold Ramis in many scenes. He was also noticeably taller than both John Candy and Judge Reinhold. In addition, there was one scene where he squared up with 6'5" John Larroquette and Murray looked at a maximum about 2" shorter. I agree though, in most of his later work he looked around the 6'1" mark or slightly taller.

You're not going to believe this, but Bill Murray is about 6'5". He lives near me and one day he brought his entire family and their friends to the local movie theater. He was getting popcorn and I had to keep doing a double take. He doesn't appear that tall in the movies. Now, I do notice he usually towers over other actors when you see him at the award ceremonies and things like that. Who knew?!
Gramps said on 8/Dec/05
Rob has him exactly right at 6'1".

Sometimes he looks 6-1, while in some other movies he looks 6-2 to 6-3. I dont know If he wears lifts or If its just a good posture on screen.

Saw Ghostbusters last Friday, there are a few scenes where Bill looks a couple of inches taller, than Aykroyd, and other times where they are virtually the same. He is hard to pin down, but 6'1" maybe 6'2" seems reasonable.
dex said on 4/Nov/05
Just see Groundhog Day?Bill is tall that is corect,but he is not 6'2''(188cm).Stephen Tobolowsky is 188cm,ann he is clearly taller than Murray.
Don´t you think?
Gramps said on 30/Oct/05
I just finished watching "The Life Aquatic" with Bill Murray. I watched him closely in several shots standing next to the 6'4" Jeff Goldblum and the 5'10" Owen Wilson. Guess what? He was as much taller than Wilson as Goldblum was taller than him! Hmmm...looks like right about 6'1"!
sam said on 17/Oct/05
Bill Murray's tricky. I certainly remember him being about the same height (certainly no taller than) Dan Aykroyd in Ghostbusters, but Murray's looked tall recently. In The Life Aquatic he looks solidly taller than everyone except Jeff Goldblum and he doesn't even look THAT much shorter than Goldblum. It probably has a lot to do with great posture. I had a teacher in college who apparently encountered Bill Murray in Aspen and said he was "like 6'4"". Probably 6'1"+ in reality.
Height Tracker said on 16/Oct/05
I agree that Bill Murray looks tall, but I also think Matt Dillon is not 6'0". He seems around 5'10.5" or 5'11".
Viper652 said on 16/Oct/05
Bill might be between 6-2 and 6-3. He always looks really tall.

In "wild thing" Bill Murray looks 2.5 inches taller than Matt Dillon. That makes him at least a 6'2'' tall man.
Height Tracker said on 30/Sep/05
In "Stripes" Bill Murray looks about as tall as Harold Ramis. I think back then he was definetely a little over 6'1".
mcfan said on 28/Aug/05
Saw "Ghostbusters" on cable. He and Dan Aykroyd were almost exactly the same height. I originally said they were extremely close by memory and that Murray was taller. Now I would say they were the same height at 6'1.
McFan said on 18/Jul/05
Bill Murray was at least 3 inches shorter than Chevy Chase in "Caddyshack." He has great posture. He's only like Dan Aykroyd's height...maybe a hair taller. Aykroyd would look much shorter than he was because he always would slouch, but I could see these two were very close in height on SNL. 6'1 is more like it, not no 6'3-4. He's not even close to that.
servel said on 8/Jul/05
okay, i have some new proof, if my face is around 9 inches long, and im 5.101/2 then bill's could possibly be 10-11 inches long, but suppose that his face is also 9 inches long, then in this picture she stands up to about his face with three inch heels. here is what i did. Youre gonna have to copy save it then expand to see what heights i placed...
If im right, then bill's height is clearly over 1.85cms which i guess is as of now 1.88 and it was back when he was young 1.90

[Editor Rob: yes, posture wise that's a good analysis for the case of Murray being that height. What I would say though is the tilt of the decking and Murray being snapped in that stride where he's on one foot. How much that might effect the difference I'm not sure...but I do remember the last scenes in Lost in Translation walking beside Scarlett he really did look like a 6ft 2 guy...]

I have seen many pictures of Bill Murray and I'm convinced that this man is not taller then 184-185cm. I would also like to ask why you use this old feet and inches system. To me and other continental europeans it seems like the stone age. I have been in USA and Great Britain many times and almost all people has guessed my height as 6'2". I'm just over 186 cm. What is 6'1"? Is it 184 cm, 185 cm or is it 186 cm. My experience is that americans estimate my height as 6'2" because I'm about one inch taller than the 6'1" guy who is actually 184 cm. Would appreciate comments.

Viper, I have yet to meet a baseball player whose listed height is right. Just a partial list includes: Jose Canseco, Vinny Castilla, Mike Bordick, Barry Bonds, Mike Gallego, George Brett, and others.

Which baseball players are you referring to Mr R?? They are pretty much accurate, save for Barry Bonds or Jose Canseco. Sometimes when they go to a different team they might shrink down an inch, which makes no sense.

Servel, I am saying that SOME of the heights in the mlb official sites are "enhanced". Most athletes want to appear taller than they are, just like most of us. I have seen Michael Barrett's height reported three different ways, so it is hard to estimate Bill Murray from him. I am one of those baseball freaks, so I can recite statistics very easily, and most of the baseball players that I have met have been listed incorrectly and rounded up.

Just saw him at his annual charity golf event at Caddyshacks at WGV.
6'2" absolute minimum, maybe more

I, by my own research, find that Bill Murray is Clearly 6.2, Rob i think you should at least put him at a 6.1&1/2...

so Mr. R youre saying that the heights in the mlb official site are wrong?

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
