Can you also add "Gunsmoke" as his notable roles because this is what started his career. He spent almost a decade on the show.Thanks
[Editor Rob: yes I'll mention that]

Weaver looked slightly taller than 6'3'' Brian Dennehy in Pearl. I think Dennehy's height is exaggerated and Weaver in his prime was a full 6'2''.

NO WAY was Weaver even 6'2". Arness has at LEAST 5-and-a-half inches, probably 6, on him in Gunsmoke, and Arness was a most 6'7", probably a bit shy of that. On top of that, in a film he did with Chuck Connors, who was 6'5" tall, Weaver was absolutely dwarfed by Connors by a good 4 inches. Also, William Hopper, who was listed as 6'3" appeared in a Gunsmoke episode and looked only around 2 to 2-and-a-half inches shorter than Arness. There was no way Hopper was just an inch closer to Arness' height than was Weaver.

Keep in mind when you compare Dennis Weaver to James Arness, you are talking about a 6 foot 7 inch man in Arness according to records. So Weaver would look fairly short standing beside Arness.

yes Rob he isnt over 6'2 because it wouldnt make sense. Even next to the Doc on Gunsmoke (Milburn Stone who was small probably 5'6 ) he has 7 inches tops. Arness had about 5 inches on him maybe 6 because of the limp they made Weaver .

looked 6'2'' in the tv movie Cocaine: a mans addiction. Another average size actor James Spader stood beside Weaver there was 4'' difference so if spaders around 5'9.75'' than Weaver has to be 6'2''. he could have shrunk a wee bit at that time.
