How tall is David Caruso ?

David Caruso's Height is 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)

CSI Miami star and former NYPD Blue lead. Granted CSI Miami's 'official site' has him proud at 6ft. His posture doesn't look very good.
Comment on the Height of David Caruso

Matt said on 30/Oct/15
I remember an episode of NYPD Blue where Bradley Whitford made a guest appearance. He and David stood close together and looked the exact same height. Whitford is 5'10.5''so Caruso is either that or 5'11 tops.

Rob at peak easily n.cage height peak 5'11.75-6ft now Still looks 5'11.25-11.5 with good posture
chrissss said on 20/Mar/14
cmon guys, he's a solid 6ft, probably a little less now maybe cuz of his posture, but i think before that he's an honest 183cm and looks it!
Lorne said on 25/Feb/14
I saw an old reference saying celeb heights had him at 5ft11.75... I think that was closer, he looks the same height as Adam Rodriguez standing up straight, and looked a 6 footer in the 80's and 90's. A solid 182cm for Mr. Caruso...

I would say David's height is about 5ft 10, although on camera is deceiving.

David Caruso looks about the same height as Adam Rodriguez. Caruso is about 6'even.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 11/Dec/12
I highly doubt Caruso is anything over 5'11", even taking into account his poor posture on CSI: Miami. He always looks around an inch shorter than Adam Rodriguez and a couple of inches shorter than Rex Linn. I would peg Caruso at 5'10.5", 179cm. When he was on NYPD Blue he also looked this height to me.

Rob do you think he only looks 2.5 on Snipes in that clip? I see nearer 4 inches, although Caruso's hairstyle could make him seem even taller. I don't think he looks under 6ft. I know somebody who said they saw Snipes while he was filming a movie in Cardiff a while back and I think they said he seemed an average height guy, not "short" as such.
[Editor Rob: i've got the film on my shelf, I'll watch it some point. I looked at the clip and wasn't as convinced of 4 inches difference though.]
Shaun said on 29/Sep/12
He needs an upgrade in my opinion, or Snipes a downgrade. No way was the height difference between him and Snipes less than 3 inches.

Pause at 58:37. Looks near 4 inches on Wesley Snipes. He also looked a bit taller than Walken and Fishburne. He could look 6'1" in that film.
Shaun said on 29/Sep/12
Rob in Kings of New York Caruso looked a bit taller than Christoper Walken.
Dmeyer said on 25/Aug/12
At peak hé looks 6' now about 5'11.5
daisymay6 said on 23/Aug/12
I met him earlier this year. 5'11" is about right.
ted said on 29/Sep/07
Rob, you said that Caruso could have been slightly shorter than Joe 'almost 6ft' flanigan,so almost 6 is 5-11,5 and if he is shorter than that he can't be 182cm himself.

[Editor Rob: yes I thought he looked shorter, of course posture of caruso at times is weak compared to a basically 6ft guy like Joe, who has good posture.]
ted said on 19/Sep/07
David Caruso is a little shorter than Adam Rodriguez who is 6ft.But if you list him at 182cm,that's not very accurate because if he was that tall we didn't even notice the difference;it is only one cm.So 181cm max for him.

Three things... he's not a prick but he is a limited actor (anyone remember Jack Lord on Haiwai 50?). He is no where near six feet and I would hesitate saying's even 5'11". Almost the angles of Caruso and Rodriguez are either upper body or relatively distant shots - the Mala Noches story line showed the two side by side on few occasions and there is a solid inch betweeen them. He's also no more than two inches taller than Bunts from NYPD and he's barely over 5'8". Sorry but I disagree with anything more than 5'11".
michael voisinet said on 28/Jun/07
david caruso looks about the same height as adam rodriguez on csi miami.i say hes about 6'tops.
Leung said on 19/Jun/07
You’re right the difference between Rodriguez and Caruso is marginal, I agree on Rodriguez a solid 6’ and Caruso a weak 6’.

Mr D says on 23/Mar/07
Rex Linn - at 6ft 4ins towers over Caruso in CSI Miami - so 5ft 11ins at most seems about right.

I don't think Linn is 6'4, maybe a strong 6'2-6'3, especially next to 6'0 Adam Rodriguez. Caruso is marginally smaller than Rodriguez; my guess Caruso is a weak 6'0.

[Editor Rob: I should say...I remember seeing an episode where Caruso was talking with Joe 'almost 6ft' flanigan and I think could have been slightly smaller...]

True Viper.he was nice to me in 1993.but I did hear bad stuff.
Viper said on 19/Dec/06
People can change. He probably is a good guy and had his bad days.
Glenn said on 18/Dec/06
He mightve BEEN a prick.
D. Ray Morton said on 18/Dec/06
"#2 He's not an asshole, pretentious, nor is he a prick."

Then he must've softened since the "good old days."
Irritated said on 17/Dec/06
#1 His badge on CSI:Miami says he's 6 foot exactly.
#2 He's not an asshole, pretentious, nor is he a prick.
Any actor who will go and talk to the fans gathered around the boundries on the set of CSI:M and chat and sign autographs and have pictures taken and laugh and be pleasent to EVERYONE is not a prick.
Most of you don't know what your talking about or are just repeating what you've heard someone else say.
#3 He's a damn fine actor, and he works his ass off to be the best he can be at all times. I, for one, admire him for that. If some of you think it's over the top, find another show to watch.
Viper652 said on 16/Nov/06
He has some talent, but his acting on CSI Miami can be so over the top at times. I mean, he just screams prick in real life. :)
Snakeman said on 15/Nov/06
I'm pretty sure he once in CSI Miami said he's five eleven.
D. Ray Morton said on 11/Aug/06
"frank 2 is prety accurate"

Yes, Frank is accurate. Spot-on, in fact.
Glenn said on 11/Aug/06
Really dmeyer? you surprise me.and I guess you didnt read his past postings that got ridiculed.
dmeyer said on 10/Aug/06

Serene said on 7/Jun/06
One my mates says that he hardly smiles or gives a good emotion in CSI Miami though at times he does look 6 feet but more to 5 feet 11.
D. Ray Morton said on 6/May/06
Bochco and Mann hated the guy and rightly so. Good actor, though.

I wonder if he's simmered down since and realized that he's only human. When did you meet him, Glenn?

[Editor Rob: speaking of Caruso, I caught some of one of his 90's failed films and thought Sam jackson did look to have a good amount on him]
sf said on 6/May/06
Yea - you gotta wonder about a guy who turns down a 300 percent pay increase after only one year on a show that starts off hugely successful and has all sorts of long-term potential. Guy goes from making 20 grand to 80 grand and episode, is one of the leads on an intelligent, cutting-edge police drama and it's not enough for him. You know the guy's got an ego. In all fairness, though, I liked his character in the first year. I wonder what the show would have been like had he stayed.
Glenn said on 6/May/06
I heard that many times.but he was nice to me.
jazzyjeff said on 5/May/06
He is one of the actors who is also in real life an unpleasant asshole.
Frank2 said on 15/Apr/06
Caruso left his highly successful role as well as financially lucrative job on NYPD Blue to star in a dreadful remake of Kiss of Death. It flopped as did other lousy feature films he starred in. It just proves there is a God.
D. Ray Morton said on 15/Apr/06
"You've met him too?"

Yeah, 1994, at the tail end of his NYPD Blue run. Was a self-important prick and loathed, incidentally, by others far more important than me.

Any case, he was another one of those guys whose height surprised the hell out of me. I was expecting 5'8" or 9".
Glenn said on 14/Apr/06
Possibly to find photo.and was in good mood,cause he was nice to me.
Frank2 said on 14/Apr/06
I'm 5'11" and saw Caruso many times when he starred in NYPD Blue. He's an inch taller than me so 6' is dead-on accurate. And yes, he's unfortunately not so nice.
Glenn said on 14/Apr/06
Seemed a hair under 5-11 to me.

[Editor Rob: slouching maybe?]
Frank2 said on 14/Apr/06
You've met him too?
D. Ray Morton said on 13/Apr/06
6' on the nose and a real asshole.
Leung said on 26/Mar/06
6’ seems reasonable, to guy does stand with his head tilted slightly forward which can make him appear shorter.
Frank2 said on 24/Mar/06
David is 6'. I saw him in person when he worked at Fox.
Amanda said on 23/Mar/06
He looks so short next to men in CSI: Miami. I thought he was like 5' 9"! But I guess he's too busy slouching and being Pretentious Man to stand up straight.
SH said on 3/Jan/06
Holt McCallany, who played John Hagen in CSI Miami looked huge compared to David Caruso. Most sites list Holt at 6'1'' (this might be inaccurate as there is not that much info about him). If he turns out to be 6'1'' (i thought him to be 6'3'' or 6'4'') this casts a real doubt about Caruso being 5'11'' or 6', which in turn casts more dounbt upon Cage and Stallone.
Danjo said on 5/Jul/05
He was a good deal taller than the 5'9" Stallone in First Blood. 6 feet, might not be out of the question.
