How tall is James Cromwell ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

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 and Star Trek: First Contact. 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".

Here's an interesting quote from 'The Age' newspaper where Cromwell refers to an audition he had for the movie 10 back in the late 70's opposite 5ft nothing Dudley Moore: "I 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 centimetres) taller than them and most of them are under six feet, so you have to be prepared to have trouble.".

@arch how tall are you? Just curious as you're one of the most regular posters here.

@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

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.

Still near 6ft6 now.

I wish I was his height.

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.

Looked close to 6'7" in The Artist in shoes and probably is if he's 6'5.5" barefoot nowadays.

Looked way taller than Clint Eastwood in Pink Cadillac, peak height of 2 metres looks about right.

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 says on 6/Aug/13
6'6 flat never over a strong 6'6 now 6'5 area

Cromwell's a couple inches taller than Clint Eastwood (6'4") in "Space Cowboys", so 6'6" is about right.
