Home :: About  Latest :: Comments :: Top 50 

James Cromwell's height is 6ft 5.5in (197 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 6.5in (199 cm)
American actor best known for roles in films like LA Confidential, Babe, Star Trek: First Contact, The Green Mile, The Queen, Space Cowboys, The Sum of All Fears, The Artist and Spider-Man 3. On TV he has appeared in series such as 24, American Horror Story: Asylum, Six Feet Under and Easy Street.

In the Frederick Post, 2001, he commented on his tall stature, saying "Just put 6 feet 6...It's a little more than that, but 6 feet 7 inches sounds terrible." In 'The Age', Cromwell refers to an audition he had for the movie 10 - opposite Dudley Moore - mentioning that he "was embarrassed by the director, Blake Edwards, who looked at me and said, 'what am I supposed to do with THAT?'. I was a little hurt to be referred to as an inanimate object at an audition. I was told by my agent that a number of big stars won't work with anyone two inches (five centimeters) taller than them and most of them are under six feet, so you have to be prepared to have trouble."

Comment on the Height of James Cromwell

Always towering every other cast member..

Why would he lie about 6'7 ? He looks to be 2M in his prime..
His son looks to have 2.5-3inches on him and his father was like 6'3..
Great genes for height lol

I watched Longest yard with Adam Sandler yesterday. There were enough scenes where Cromwell stood in front of Sandler. All I can tell is, that Cromwell is never 6'7". He had about 6 inches on Sandler who is 5'11" at his peak. So 6'5" could be right for Cromwell's actual height.

Rob, is 6ft7 possible?

I can definitely believe he's rounding down a full inch...
[Editor Rob: 6ft 6 and half range I think he typically looked, now he's lost some height of course at his age.]

He might tower over everyone at that height, however it doesn't make him less of an actor.He's a good actor

Cromwell visited Hunter series in the -80,s, and was slightly shorter than 6'6 listed Fred Dryer. Not a big difference, maybe 198cm vs 197,5cm.

Rob do you think it's time for another downgrade?? Click Here OK his posture isn't brilliant but it's difficult to see him 1.5 inches taller than Goran here.
[Editor Rob: I still think he'd clear 6ft 5 mark.]

Best movie of the 90s Sam? For me it's a close tie between L.A. Confidential and Shawshank Redemption.

Rob can you add a photo and films like The Green Mile, The Queen, Space Cowboys The Sum of All Fears, W., The Artist, and Spider-Man 3. On television he has appeared in series such as 24, American Horror Story: Asylum, Six Feet Under and Easy Street.

He's a fantastic actor IMO, one of the very best and hugely underrated I think but he makes even tall actors look short or average and is too gangly for cinema really. He's done pretty well considering though. He definitely looks minimum 199cm in earlier career and pushing 6'7".

There's actually a few shots in L.A. Confidential where it looks like the other actors except Russell Crowe (who they shot intentional to appear bigger) seem at risk to get dizzy looking up at Cromwell all the time IMO.

A little? What's the average height in the country you live in? 6'5?

Man, I'd kill to be his height or taller.

@arch how tall are you? Just curious as you're one of the most regular posters here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/14
@Arch: No, not at all (I'm 6ft3.5 BTW). I very grateful for my height. I can get close enough to 6ft5 in most regular heeled shoes and I'm taller than most people I'm with. It's just my father was a solid 6ft4 in his prime (now my height) and I would've liked to have outgrown him by a bit. My mother's only 5ft5 though so it was more in my favour than I probably realised!

If my dad was 6ft6-6ft7 like this guy and still towering over me in his 70s, it would be even more annoying lol

He's a little above average height. Good for him
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
Yeah they did their very best in LA Confidentual to make him look within normal tall range. Only very briefly did they lapse, like the hill scene with him and Guy Pearce and you could see he had 8-9 inches on Pearce and was obviously easily 6'6". They tended to avoid full body shots and just film his face and not show him talking to other actors from a distance and even in the final scene where Pearce shoots him and he's full length he was in the distance to make him look shorter.

Why Rampage is 6'3" too short nowadays?

Looks shorter than 6'6.5" in LA Confidential but they do their best to reduce the height difference between him and Guy Pearce.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/13
Still near 6ft6 now.

I wish I was his height.
avi said on 11/Dec/13
was around 6'6 now probably a weak one approaching a strong 6'5 area. his son seems almost 2 inches bigger at a strong 6'7.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Oct/13
Looked close to 6'7" in The Artist in shoes and probably is if he's 6'5.5" barefoot nowadays.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Oct/13
Looked way taller than Clint Eastwood in Pink Cadillac, peak height of 2 metres looks about right.

in space cowboys clint eastwood was 6,2" look the medical revision scene ,donal is 2inches more tall in this frame,so cromwell was 4 inches more tall than eastwood in this movie
Balrog said on 30/Aug/13
Peak over 6'6" for sure, but now I think he struggle to look a full 6'5". I think his 6'4" range right now...
avi said on 6/Aug/13
6'6 flat never over a strong 6'6 now 6'5 area
Mikey P said on 13/Jul/13
Cromwell's a couple inches taller than Clint Eastwood (6'4") in "Space Cowboys", so 6'6" is about right.

He also has a son who is 6'8": Click Here
