He shares a slight resemblance to Bill Pullman.

I'd look 0.25 inches taller than him with no footwear advantage. 5'9.5-5'9.75 is a better range.

I thought he never looked as tall as T, 5'9.5 then and now.

@ truth ,
you say it because you want him to be shorter than you !
Solid 178 in the pic is out of question

178-179cm peak, now 176-177cm.
Joey said on 10/Jan/13
considering he had slight shoe advantage Id say 177cm..178cm was porbably his height in his younger years

5'9.5 on a good day in the morning for him! 5'10 is a corny joke!!!

Looks about 5'10 and a half here i would guess, clearly no shorter than 5'10 though.

I think 5ft10.5(179cm) was his peak.
Same as Mr. T.
Alistair said on 3/Oct/07
He's the same height as Mr.T who is listed on here as 5ft 10.5in. When you see them on the A-Team or in photos they are exactly the same height altough T always seems taller because he's about twice as wide as Dirk.

Hmm during this radio interview at roughly the 4:50 mark he specifically says "I'm not tall". Maybe it's just his perception of tall, but I personally would claim 5'11 to be tall. I have to say though he seems a bit biggoted in some of his views, I've read some bits and peices about him and he seems very angry.

Just saw him at a convention. 5'10" no more. Pretty thin too. Very easy going- one of my friends talked to him.

The guy is one of the smartest people I've ever talked to. His autobiography is great. Stephen Cannell won't touch the subject about cooked books at Universal because he brings in the coin and he got his dough. All those A-Team guys got the shaft in profit participation. What Dirk told me made me sick to my stomach. We won't even talk about Garner. He got pounded by Jack "cheapo" Warner in the 50's and Lew Wasserman's cookers at Universal in the 70's. Everything is in the red in TV land if you are part of the profit or if you are Jack Webb/Cannell/Spielberg you got paid. We won't even talk about the MCA record division.

I agree with Brad, very laid back and intelligent guy...although in person nowadays does look more 5ft 10.
Brad said on 11/Oct/06
Got creamed by Universal's profit participation in "The A Team". He only had a tiny part of a point but the pencil pushers said the show was still in the red. James Garner sued and only got a small part of his Rockford $ and he was a producer! I think he hates Universal. He's charging for autographs now. 15 years ago he was free.

I met him at the Chicago comic con and he isn't 5'11". I'm 5'10" and was slightly taller than him plus he's very slight.
Brad said on 15/Aug/06
Probably the nicest TV star I've ever met. If he ran for president he'd win. Smart guy.
