2 inches shorter than richard t jones. 6'0 is his real height.
Lorne says on 24/Mar/15
Qualms is closer to 6'1 than 6ft, but yeah, Jim didn't seem taller, but that doesn't mean he isn't. I think he is a legit 6'1; the quarter inch is unnecessary, IMO.(not impossible, s).

are you looking at the video correctly throughout the whole video he's the same height as fallon I would say 6ft flat c'mon man look at this:
He's just 6ft please downgrade Rob

Now lets see the foot wear:

If Wiz Khalifa is 6ft3.5 w/o boots he's about 6ft5 in this pic supposing timberland boots give 1inch1/2 of height.

If and only if Jim Parsons is a strong 6ft1 guy with shows he would be 6ft2 ish here.Now c'mon guys does a 6ft2 guy look like this to a strong 6ft3 guy which is Wiz??

Everybody in bbt are midgets.
Silent_D says on 19/Mar/15
Next to fallon, he was a little taller. Wiz didn't look close to 6 foot 4 next to fallon and parsons. I always thought he was 187cm but i think 185cm is about right. I know for a fact he is shorter than david letterman and craig ferguson. He looks more built now.
5ft10guy says on 17/Mar/15
He should be downgraded to 6ft flat this is totally wrong.Same height as Jimmy Fallon Wiz khalifa makes all these guys average height looking including Parsons who is 6ft flat if Wiz is not even 6ft4

Was just watching Conan and he looks 5'11.5-6'0 Max next to Conan.
Rhonda says on 18/Feb/15
Those are interesting photos Rob and cole, I agree with cole on the height estimates he does not once look 5cm taller, Victor in one or two photos holds his own to Parsons with just under a shade smaller and others Parsons looks two to three cm taller. Victor being 181-182cm. If Jim was 186cm I'd expect a bigger difference but as Cole says he could have the advantage and if he did have the advantage in some photos I'd espect some of him looking more taller. The range doesn't equate his stated 186cm.
cole says on 12/Feb/15
@Editor Rob: Yeah I've seen them. Jim looks taller, but I'm not quite sure what to make of those, are you? About 4 cm in the "Capital One" shot (although Jim might have an advantage in that one) and anything from a hair to 2/3 cm taller in some of the on stage ones.
cole says on 10/Feb/15
@Rhonda: The picture Rob has used is not the best, as it favours Kitsch and Bomer a little, but it's not bad, it gives you some idea. He looks pretty much 5 cm taller than Bomer and 6 cm taller than Kitsch in other pics from the same set as well. The footwear looks about the same, hard to tell if one would have much more than the others: Click Here

In your pic Bomer is leaning back and Quinto is leaning forward, adding height to Quinto.
Here's a few where you could say it's a case of Bomer looking 5'11 and Quinto looking 6'1:
Click Here
Click Here
Here's Quinto in sandals and Bomer in a decent sneaker: Click Here

I don't think Bomer is more than 5'11 flat if Quinto is a legit 6'1, you could say 6'1 flat is more likely for Parsons, but a solid 6'1 is more realistic than a solid 6ft.
[Editor Rob: here's the photos of Jim with Victor Cruz who we know is 5ft 11 5/8ths.]
Rhonda says on 23/Jan/15
Here is genuine 6ft1(185cm) Zachary Quinto next to Matt Bomer. Jim Parsons doesn't make the same height and so must be no more than 184cm.

Rhonda says on 23/Jan/15
On Craig Ferguson he said "I am 6ft too" twice, As in 'as well' in reply to are "are you 6ft 2 or 6ft too? he says 6ft too, the transcript of it on a website. He clearly isn't anywhere near 6ft2.
Rhonda says on 22/Jan/15
Cole - Do you think the picture above Rob has used is a good picture for judging height or not, in my opinion the angle is not right at top of head for good judgement but it is at Jim Parsons chin height where you can see a straight line across all three, plus we have no idea about what footwear each is wearing. In BBT Jim has the footwear advantage over his male co-stars who tend to wear converse.
Rhonda says on 22/Jan/15
Cole - You are entitled to your opinion as I am. Photo is not a distortion because it is a scene from BBT not a photo in the whole scene he is never more than two inches taller, certainly not nearly four. I just think you are way off, every visual on BBT points to sub 6ft1, such as door frames and actors and actresses in the show versus Jim. Leonard's mother is not far from him in height and she also is in Ghost Whispers with JLH and another guy in the show is 6ft1 and he looks much taller compared to here. DJ Qualls is same height as Jim Parsons on the show and he is 6ft or there abouts. Perhaps if you measured 6ft1.25 on your doorframe and add an inch for shoes and see how high that goes you can see Sheldon never reaches near that height. LeVar Burton he is 5ft7 was on recent episode, I swear Sheldon looked four inches taller. Watch it. I am not saying he is as small as 5ft11 but there are times he looks it. I can buy EzioAuditore711 claim of 6'0.25
cole says on 13/Jan/15
@Rhonda: I'm afraid that's quite the opposite of a "better picture", but I can see that there is no point in arguing with you. In order to be taken more seriously you must understand that a large amount of the pictures you use to argue are too distorted, therefore unusable as evidence.

Jim Parson is a gorgeous man. He is tall skinny and handsome. He is incredibly talented actor. I hope to see him in other movies. Contrary to Jonny Galecky ho acts as if he is blind and his voice is as if he is retarded.
Adolf says on 28/Nov/14
He's hard to tell. Looks shorter than Craig Ferguson who is 6'2 or 6'1.5. But Craig may have some footwear advantage.

He is Tall. I'm 5'9 and i can say he is tall. i did not think he was 41yrs though

A better photo with Matt Bomer and Jim Parsons, again looking similar height, i.e under 6ft1 in fact under 6ft and under 5ft11.5 if Matt Bomer is 5ft11.25. I have no doubt Jim may measure 6ft1 in shoes or even 6ft1.25. On big bang theory his male co-stars all wear converse most of the time whereas Jim Parsons has shoes so he has the footwearadvantage, clearly next to Data(Brent Spiner, 5ft9.5) he is looking two centimetres to two inches inches taller.

cole says on 7/Oct/14
The lowest you could argue for Parsons is 6'0.75/6'1 -

I and others can argue for a lower value quite easily based on DJ Qualls who appeared on the big bang theory and who is 6ft to 6ft0.5 max, and appeared the same height, I am more flexible than you as you are claiming he cannot be lower than a certain height, he must be X height, whereas I can see how he looks a range of heights which cannot be easy determined by his co-stars smaller statures.
evil says on 15/Oct/14
He makes the other actors of TBBT look pretty short, although they are not over 5'7
cole says on 7/Oct/14
@Rhonda: Nice pic there... Major John H. Distortion want's to see you in his office right away. Btw Lee Pace is nearer 6'4 than 6'3, his footwear is hidden and Jim is standing further back.
The lowest you could argue for Parsons is 6'0.75/6'1 - that much is clear seen that he's about 1.5in taller than 5'11.25/5'11.5 Zach Braff and near 2in taller than 5'11/5'11.25 Matt Bomer. Plus he's got an easy 8in on 5'5 Johnny Galecki when standing tall.
EzioAuditore711 says on 7/Sep/14
That's what I'm trying to say as well. Thank you, Lee.
Lee says on 6/Sep/14
184cm in my opinion - he might look tall on the show, but yeah every other actor on the series is short so it aint a big surprise that a guy who is tall'ish towers over them

his slim build also creates the illusion of being tall
EzioAuditore711 says on 31/Aug/14
That's because all the other cast members are basically midgets.
EzioAuditore711 says on 31/Aug/14
And what about me? To me, he's definitely not tall.
EzioAuditore711 says on 29/Aug/14
Whatever. I still believe he's about 6'0.5'' tall. And BTW is 6'5'' or 6'6'' gigantic?
SaveUsY2J says on 28/Aug/14
I was never trying to argue he was over 6'1, but 6'0 he ain't. And no, I don't believe he's that tall simply because he has a skinny build. I believe he's that tall because he legitimately looks it with 5'11-5'11.5 listed guys.

Ezio, the part about my height wasn't directed at you, it was addressed to Phiba.
EzioAuditore711 says on 28/Aug/14
Maybe 6'0.25 is a bit harsh but Parsons is no taller than 6'1''. I'd say 6'0.5'' to 6'0.75'' MAX. His skinny build has fooled you BIG TIME. And why would I care how tall you are? You're still short to me.
SaveUsY2J says on 27/Aug/14
Phiba, last time I measured myself barefoot I was 182cm, and this was shortly after I turned 18 so a slight growth since then is likely. I had a housemate last year who claimed 6ft and was the exact same height as me. Also, I've met Jason Mewes whom Rob has also met and pegged at 5'11, and he was noticeably shorter than me in similar footwear. Don't pretend like you know my height better than I do myself.

Also, EzioAuditore711, it's truly tragic that your argument has now been distilled down to "I'm right and you're wrong. Nyeh nyeh nyeh nyeh!" Victor Cruz has been measured just shy of 6ft barefoot, by the way.

Ultimately, you still lose, because the man who runs this site knows that this guy is no less than a legit 6'1, and that listing at the top of the page isn't budging no matter how much kicking and screaming there is on your part. Fin.
EzioAuditore711 says on 25/Aug/14
I'm right, ''SaveUsY2J'' is wrong. Rob, downgrade Jim Parsons to 6'0.25''.
phiba says on 25/Aug/14
Saveus , your probably 6'0 in shoes 5'11 real height (180cm.) That would this guy 6'0 flat feet around 6'1in shoes, now stop arguing
EzioAuditore711 says on 16/Aug/14
Maybe Cruz isn't 6 ft though. Have you thought about that?
SaveUsY2J says on 16/Aug/14
Click Here

Hair or no hair, he's taller than Cruz. Also, you can see his shoes in the full body shots with Bomer and they're clearly not elevators. You're just grasping at straws now.
EzioAuditore711 says on 12/Aug/14
Lifts? Longer head?
SaveUsY2J says on 10/Aug/14
Riiight... Except he's got a flat hairstyle, certainly not the kind that would add a full inch of height. You're just fixated on trying to downgrade him and only seeing what you want to see. I've still yet to see an explanation from you as to how he has two inches on 5'11 Matt Bomer and is noticeably taller than 5'11.5 Zach Braff.
EzioAuditore711 says on 8/Aug/14
They were the same height. Jim just looked taller because of the hair. You just need glasses.
SaveUsY2J says on 8/Aug/14
I've watched the segment, and it didn't show me anything I didn't already know. Cruz looked a clear inch shorter throughout the entire segment when he and Parsons were equidistant from the camera. But you'll only see what you want to see.
EzioAuditore711 says on 7/Aug/14
Watch the ESPYS segment with Parsons and Cruz and you'll see. And also calm your ass down.
SaveUsY2J says on 6/Aug/14
I said "where he's not at an obvious disadvantage" Cruz is closer to the camera than him and standing with better posture. What part of that don't you understand?
EzioAuditore711 says on 5/Aug/14
Victor Cruz.
SaveUsY2J says on 4/Aug/14
I'm 6'0" so close enough to his height to be able to judge it in proximity to my own. I saw him again last week while he was outside on a cigarette break at work and he still looked an inch taller than me. If you still don't believe he's 6'1", look at him next to near 6'4" Steven Seagal and 5'8" Johnny Marr:

Click Here

Again, I implore you; find me a photo anywhere of Parsons looking under 6'1" where he's not at an obvious disadvantage, because I'm straining to find any at the moment. As a 6-footer myself, I should know what one looks like, and this guy isn't that low. He has an easy two inches on 5'11" Matt Bomer and is noticeably taller than 5'11.5 Zach Braff in the photos posted below so I don't know how you can still argue 6ft flat, or even a ludicrous 5'11"
EzioAuditore711 says on 3/Aug/14
You can't really judge his height from a selfie. You can't see even their shoes. And BTW you keep saying he ''looks'' 6'1'' in person, have you measured him? And how tall are you?
SaveUsY2J says on 3/Aug/14
Didn't you read what I said? Cruz is nearer the camera and has better posture.

Again, I'll re-post this photo: Click Here The guy on the left looks an easy 6'1" in person, I went to school with him. Even with the camera angle favouring him slightly he's no taller than Parsons.
EzioAuditore711 says on 2/Aug/14
He has has hair! Of course he's gonna look taller! He's maybe half an inch taller than Cruz. MAX.
SaveUsY2J says on 2/Aug/14

Parsons looks taller than Cruz even with loose posture and a camera disadvantage.
[Editor Rob: forget about the height for a second, but are half masts back in fashion these days?]
EzioAuditore711 says on 2/Aug/14
He ''looks'' taller because he has more hair. I think they are the same height. If you downgrade him 1 inch no one would complain.
EzioAuditore711 says on 2/Aug/14

EzioAuditore711 says on 1/Aug/14
Is Victor Cruz taller than 6ft barefoot? If not Parsons no more than a flat 6 foot.
[Editor Rob: Cruz has a just under 6ft measurement...but from looking at photos I think Jim looks taller to me.]
SaveUsY2J says on 1/Aug/14
EzioAuditore711, look at the photo I posted of him with a former schoolmate of mine who met him in London. That guy looks 6'1" in person for definite, and Parsons is no shorter than him. Not a chance he's as low as 5'11, that's lunacy.

I can't believe I'm defending his height so ardently considering I hate BBT, but there you go.
Chris says on 1/Aug/14
How much does he weigh? 155 pounds?
Chris says on 1/Aug/14
He's not 6ft or under it. Look at him next to 5'11.5 Zach Braff: Click Here
He's obviously at least this listing.
EzioAuditore711 says on 31/Jul/14
At the ESPYS he was the same height as Victor Cruz. He's 5'11''-6'.
Dejavu says on 30/Jul/14
I would guess him as a 6'1.
EzioAuditore711 says on 24/Jul/14
John Cleese does NOT duck under door frames. He just walks through them.
[Editor Rob: unlike Chuck Norris...when doors see him coming, they open or else end up getting a fist through them.]
EzioAuditore711 says on 23/Jul/14
Door frames aren't a problem for me. I walk around in flip-flops. I think that Parsons looks to be about 6 feet tall, but not over. I'd say a strong 5'11'' with a bit heel and he's close to 6'1''. 6'2'' is absolutely impossible unless he's in lifts, which strangely enough hasn't been discussed yet. Is Jim Parsons a lift wearer? Certainly would explain the 6'1'',6'2'' claims.
SaveUsY2J says on 16/Jul/14
That Spiner photo is just as bad as the Bouchard photo for height comparison, Brent's nearer the camera and has considerably thicker hair.

He doesn't have the advantage over Bouchard either, no casual shoes give more than an inch of height, and the trainers she has on look like the kind which would give about 1.3 inches, so she does have the edge. And she's nearer the camera, so whatever the angle's like, that automatically gives her the boost.

For what it's worth, a guy I knew from school who looks a legit 6'1" in person met him in London recently: Click Here (hope the link works, don't know what the privacy settings are like on his Facebook)

They look the same height, though Parsons is a bit farther from the camera, and as it's a mobile selfie I'm not sure how much bearing the angle has on it. Doesn't look like there'd be any difference between them if they stood next to each other with equal posture, though.
EzioAuditore711 says on 12/Jul/14
I'm 6'5'', Rhonda.
Rhonda says on 10/Jul/14
The prove is with other 5ft10 people like Brent Spiner who Rob has for 5ft9.5 he has only two inches in him also.
Click Here
Rhonda says on 10/Jul/14
@save us, I doubt very much those are 0.5 inches and I wouldn't call those dress shoes, they are casual not dress so more like over and inch judging the angle. As for camera angles, Sheldon has the advantage, because you see that table you know both the near side and far side are the same height but the picture looks like the far side has higher in the picture. He appears after another look 1 inch above her but he is leaning but she is not standing straight leg bent in causal pose, believe me he has maximum of 2 inches on her. The prove is with other 5ft10 people like Brent Spiner who Rob has for 5ft9.5 he has only two inches in him also.
Rhonda says on 8/Jul/14
I am 5ft2 Ezio, what height are you?
SaveUsY2J says on 8/Jul/14
@Rhonda- She's in Nike Air Max-type shoes which would give slightly over an inch of additional height, so about 0.5 more than those dress shoes he's in would add. If you subtracted that plus her camera and posture advantages, I think he'd have about three inches over her;
EzioAuditore711 says on 8/Jul/14
Thank you, Rhonda. I'm glad someone else sees the truth. BTW how tall are you?
Josh says on 7/Jul/14
Heīs not over 6'0 after seeing Bouchard picture probably 5ī11.5
Rhonda says on 6/Jul/14
He never looks 6ft2 sorry C but that is an impossibility. I've narrowed it down to 6ft flat to 6ft1. I'd say he is 184cm if I was to put a height for him, I could believe 6ft is more likely than 6ft2. His shoes with Bouchard aren't flat either, I think he has footwear advantage vs tennis shoes.
EzioAuditore711 says on 5/Jul/14
He doesn't look 6'2'' next to Bouchard. 6' flat is more likely.
SaveUsY2J says on 4/Jul/14
That Bouchard photo is worthless for height comparison. He's at every disadvantage imaginable- she's nearer the camera and has thicker footwear, plus he's leaning in. It proves nothing.
~C~ says on 4/Jul/14
Just said on Letterman he's 6'2" 170 lbs.
EzioAuditore711 says on 3/Jul/14
He's 5'11''. Maybe 5'11.5''. 6' is a stretch.
Teej says on 2/Jul/14
I thought he was a strong 6'2 189cm, but then again its hard to tell as the rest of the Big Bang Theory cast are substantially shorter than him, im suprised though i must say.
Rhonda says on 30/Jun/14
Bouchard is 5ft10 and Sheldon looks 6ft there that is 183cm. He isn't one inch taller it is more.
Rhonda says on 30/Jun/14
Thanks SaveUs, I posted two photos where they looked same height, I cannot see your first one but your second Parsons owns Bomer by two inches there. I wonder if lifts for Bomer in my photos or lifts for Parson in yours, who knows.
EzioAuditore711 says on 30/Jun/14
The Bouchard pic proves it! He's 5'11''. Maybe 5'11.5''-6' if stretched out.
SaveUsY2J says on 26/Jun/14
@Rhonda: Proof that you can't trust one photo alone (and the second photo you've posted is worthless for height comparison, as they're not standing anywhere near close enough to each other to accurately compare) because in all of these photos Parsons has a good two inches on Bomer:

He's something under 6'1''. Not sure how much under, but he's not 6'1''. Then again I recently learned that I'm 6'5''. Which means that my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt.
SaveUsY2J says on 12/Jun/14
These 6'0 claims are crap. He's nothing under 6'1.
EzioAuditore711 says on 2/Jun/14
Cooper wears suspicious heeled shoes and is slightly under 6'1''. As for Parsons he's in the 5'11.5''-6'0'' range. DJ Qualls looked slightly taller on TBBT.
EzioAuditore711 says on 22/May/14
He's definitely closer to 5'10'' than he is to 6'2''. 6' is the absolute MAXIMUM he could look. He might be as low as 5'11''. His lean build seems to fool A LOT of people into thinking he's up to 2 inches taller than he actually is! Does he look 6'2'' next to 5'7'' Nayyar? I don't think so!
Mikki says on 16/May/14
he said in an interview that he was 6'2", but i don't know if he was joking or not..
Az says on 7/May/14
Ran into this guy today at a restaurant in NYC. He is definitely taller than 6'. Also saw Anthony Bourdain, very much 6'4". :)
MrGrim says on 23/Apr/14
rhonda fair enough 5'11 but pallin and EzioAuditore711 have a very good point.And i knew a bloke who was 5'9 who actually thought he was 6foot he said the doctor told him he was that tall even though me mate who's 6'5 was stood right next to me and even told him he's not and he still thought he was lol people believe what they want to believe.
Rhonda says on 8/Apr/14
There are a couple of good pointers towards his height :- his head reaches the top of the bracket of the door in shoes and just under that with it shoes. I believe Ross from Friends reaches a similar height in shoes and many believe he is also slightly under 6ft1. Personally I think the absolute max he can be is a 6ft1 flat and the bare min he could be is 5ft11.5. I am going to say 6ft to 6ft0.5 would be my personal opinion on his height. I am trying to find the height of Gablehauser because Sheldon is similar height. Anyway the top of a bracket from a door frame is a good number of inches if he were 6ft1 with shoes he'd be taller next to door frame. MrGrim no way is he as small as 5ft10, Leonard's mother is that height and he is taller, assuming she is actually a genuine 5ft10 that is. There is nothing to point to such a low 5ft10 height for him. He looks a few inches more.
EzioAuditore711 says on 24/Mar/14
Palin is 100% right! That's what I've been saying all along. And BTW I'm pretty sure that Palin at 186 cm would be taller than Jim Parsons.
MrGrim says on 24/Mar/14
5'10, 5'11, tops don't be fooled skinny people can look a lot taller than they actually are even the way you dress can make you look taller I am 6'0 but if Jim parsons is 6'1 then I'm 6'2 or even 6'3 I mean come on you all know how actors say there a few inches taller than they actually are but hey if you think he's over 6'0 then tom cruise is 5'10 and its all a big lie about him being short
Chris says on 18/Mar/14
If Will Wheaton is 5'10, then Jim is obviously over 6ft: Click Here
Pallin 186cm says on 17/Mar/14
Jim parsons thrives on the fact that he Works with short cast members, so he can tell anyone that he is as he claims, 6'2". This is ridiculous since he is clearly shorter than Dj Qualls who is a legit 184 guy, and just by looking at Sheldon you can see that he is not even 6'1" imagine if hugh Jackman or Tom hiddleston would stand next to him, then his 6'2" claim would die on the spot
EzioAuditore711 says on 13/Mar/14
I'm 6'3'' and am a full head taller than somebody in the 5'5''- 5'6'' height range. If Kaley Cuoco is 5'6'' maybe 5'5'' and we assume Parsons is about 6'2'' she should be at about his lips. She isn't. Thus making him shorter than 6'2'' or 6'1'' for that matter. Plus he doesn't look a head taller than Galecki who's no more than 5'5'' and may be 5'4.5''. Just watch The Big Bang Theory.

Just saw a picture of him with Anson Mount on Twitter, and Mount looks to have an inch on him.

@ezioauditore711 he is more than just a simple six foot, I know the guys around him are all short but if he is, as you say, six feet tall then he's the tallest six footer I've ever seen compared to everyone around him.
EzioAuditore711 says on 23/Feb/14
Why haven't you downgraded him yet Rob? He's 6 feet tall.

He's not 6'1.25''. Looks barely 6' next to 5'6'' (maybe less) Kaley Cuoco.

6'1" is probably right , even though short cast members, during the seasons we meet some of pennys boyfriends WHO are legit 6'4" guys and there aint much difference between them and sheldon
Emily says on 13/Jan/14
@Rhonda A 9 inch head at your height is actually on the bigger side. 9 inches i think is the start of "big" for female head length. Mine is at least 9 inches (not sure how long exactly), but i'm almost 6 feet tall.
Emily says on 10/Jan/14
And what's his face length? 21 cm? He has a very high hairline.
[Editor Rob: I don't think his head is over 9.5 inches and with an at most 3cm hairlevel, 21-21.5 face length might be right]
Emily says on 3/Jan/14
9,5 inches? No way. His head is definitely longer than that
[Editor Rob: look at His head with leonard Nimoy who I met and his head isn't longer than mine.]
EzioAuditore711 says on 29/Dec/13
6 foot flat,maybe a very strong 5'11''.. Doesn't tower over Kaley Cuoco and she's only 5'6''. I'm 6'3'' and am a full head taller than my grandfather who's 5'5''-5'6'' range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Dec/13
He can look 187-188cm at times on TBBT because he's rake thin and the short cast
Gheist says on 20/Dec/13
Anywhere around 183-185 is good for him, he towers everyone in the show, but considering Nayyar is at max 171cm is a lot of difference. Since he is tall and skinny he looks taller, 183-184 for him is my bet.
Mr. R says on 28/Nov/13
Actually, I'm wrong Jim referred to himself as 6-2 on the tonight show last week.
Mr. R says on 23/Nov/13
I was at the Tonight Show taping tonight with Jay Leno, and Jim said at one point that he was 6-1. But when he came to greet Leno, he clearly was not three inches taller than Jay. Rob has this one right on the nose!
Sarah says on 4/Nov/13
He is about 6'1", good listing.
Rhonda says on 20/Oct/13
Blaze most of the cast are sub 5ft6 so you'd tower over them like one of Penny's taller bofriends, taller than them even I think I searched and Some of Penny's boyfriends were in the 6ft3-4 range and towered over Sheldon.
Emily says on 19/Oct/13
He has a weird head shape and it's quite big too. 10 inches long?
[Editor Rob: not sure it's quite that long, maybe 9.5ish]
Blaze says on 3/Oct/13
I thought he was 6'2 since he completely towers the cast. wonder how I would look with the cast since I'm 6'5...
jim says on 13/Sep/13
I'd say 184cm. He's surrounded by tiny cast members and his skinny frame makes him look taller.
Balrog says on 10/Sep/13
183? Jesus Christ.
Viper says on 9/Sep/13
183cm at best
Lorne says on 30/Aug/13
Wasn't he listed 6' 1 flat? That's closer, he doesn't look taller than 6ft0.75in DJ Qualls.
HellBoundPower says on 8/Aug/13
If Jim is 6'1.25" DJ Quills is almost 6'2". He edged him out on The Big Bang Theory.
Viper says on 8/Aug/13
No way is he this tall.
spainmen says on 30/Jul/13
I would say 185 cms he gets towered by 190-191 cms pennys ex-boyfried zack
Rhonda says on 17/Jul/13
Jim Parsons with Matt Bomer listed as 5ft11.5 and Rob lists him as 5ft11.25 they look the same height in these photos, if not Matt Bomer probably pips him by a little.

Jim Parsons is 6ft to 6ft0.5, points of reference is Riki Lindhome who played Ramona Nowitzi is 5ft9 and he had 3 inches on her. He is currently in a play with Lee Pace who is 6ft3 and he has 2.5 to 3 inches on him. Christine Baranski who plays Leonard mother is 5ft10 she isnt far from his height.

jamz says on 8/May/13
He's about 6'0". He's just skinny which fools people into thinking he's slightly taller than he really is
Mike 181 says on 24/Apr/13
6"2 in shoes..
Lomax says on 14/Apr/13
Him and DJ qualls are the same in height on the episode
Emily says on 1/Apr/13
Btw, i donīt think short people look taller per se. Itīs the physical build that creates the illusion of being taller. Mostly the length of the legs, if you have shorter legs than another person your same height, youīre gonna look shorter.
Emily says on 1/Apr/13
How long is his head? Just wondering...
jack bassmaster says on 25/Mar/13
yeah he is 6ft 1 maybe 6ft 1 1/2 but when he wears shoes he is every bit 6ft 2 look at the scottish guy ferguson who is 6ft 2 he was the same height as him
LOL says on 17/Mar/13
@del how the hell is 6'1 6 inches taller than 5'5? i normally wouldnt call anyone out for that but you claim to know measurements and math.. what are you 12?
B.T. Stomp says on 13/Feb/13
Today I did background on 'Big Bang Theory'.
Kunal (Raj) came right up us to put his drink on the counter.
He politley said 'excuse me' and wished us a 'good morning'.
When he was right in front of me he looked to be his listed height of 5'8".
Johnny (Leonard) walked by me and looked a little taller than his listed height of 5'5".
Then I saw he was wearing big boots.
Jim (Sheldon) walked by from a distance but looked about my height 6'1" if not just slightly taller, maybe 6'1.5"
Simon (Howard) I only saw from the bleachers.
When I watched them rehearsing from a tv monitor Johnny looked about the same height as Simon.
Since Johnny was wearing big boots and Simon I think converse sneakers that would mean Simon has around 1" on Johnny.
Didn't really get to see any of the girls.
Except Mayim (Amy) walked by us to go offstage when I was sitting.
Then Kaley was on the bleachers with Johnny thanking the audience for their participation.
They all seem very nice and I hope I get booked on the show again in the near future.
Ramsay says on 20/Jan/13
How is it a "myth"? It's basic perception, skinnier people always do look taller which is why it's accepted as being that way, you having a couple of people overinflate your height doesn't change that
bostonmike says on 15/Jan/13
It is a myth that people, who are thin, look taller than what they really are. I was 6'0" tall when I was in highschool and 175 lbs and people thought I was about 5'11". I am currently the same height but a 195 lbs and people think I'm 6'1" or 6'2". When your thicker, you look bigger. When you look bigger, you look taller. It's simple you idiots.
leonari says on 11/Jan/13
The guy always looks tall...cause he is.
del says on 10/Jan/13
Oy he's lanky so he looks taller (I'm 5'7 and people think I'm taller cause of it) but he's at least 6'1..if you know measurements and math, galecki is 5'5 which if parsons is 6'1 that's an 6 inches difference and that's apparent...I'm 6 inches taller than both my sisters and you can definetly tell, when I look at them I'm literally more than a head taller...if u watch them all together in a close scene, he's way above a head taller
Josh says on 9/Jan/13
looks around 6'0.5 (184 cm)
Mastro says on 2/Jan/13
Funny that people are quoting the life sized cut outs- do you really think they get all six sigma with those? They could easily be an inch or so off.
balrog says on 25/Dec/12
The slight downgrade is perfect Rob. Also I'd put Galecki under 5'5'' now you add Nayyar at 5'7''
Jack says on 23/Dec/12
I think 6'1" is right for him. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would lie about his height, so when he said he is 'six-two' he probably meant it in shoes.
Silent D says on 13/Dec/12
Johnnyfive says on 29/Nov/12
I watched him on Leno the other night and when Jim was talking about a life sized cardboard cutout his mom had of him he said "its 6'2" obviously the cutout is in shoes because its from his show so if he's 6'2 in shoes, then that means he's 6'1 barefoot (185cms).
tony t. says on 26/Nov/12
Thought he was like 5'11 or something closer to that. Didn't realize he was quite this tall.
alex says on 7/Nov/12
Definitely NOT 187cm. Closer to 184-185cm. He doesn't that much taller than 5'4 Simon Helberg. 187cm is way to tall. He needs a downgrade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Oct/12
Yeah 186-187cm looks right. Close to 6ft2
balrog says on 21/Oct/12
He's bulking up for the role of Flash I think. 185-186 cms.
Silent d says on 7/Oct/12
6 foot 1. Rob did you upgrade him from 6 foot 1? I remember he was listed as 6 foot 1. He is deceptively built. He looks lanky but i think he wears layers of clothes to make himself bigger.
AD says on 11/Sep/12
This is Jim next to 6'0" (or slightly under) Leonard Nimoy
Click Here
Interesting that people still refer to Jim as 'skinny'....this is a cast picture with a rare shot of Jim in a short sleeved T-shirt in the last season, looks pretty bulked up to me!
Click Here
zero says on 10/Sep/12
Parsons is probably a solid 6'1'' and pretty skinny. In TBBT looks 6'4'' because the rest of the cast is short, the tallest male after him is Kunal Nayyar (Raj) who looks in the 5'7'' range.
SolidSnake says on 3/Sep/12
Looks about 5'11'' on BBT. Maybe I'm missing something
witchdoctor says on 14/Aug/12
He's a flat 6 ft1(1.855m)
Tommy says on 11/Feb/12
I think maybe he's a bit below 6'1.5. He looked a touch taller than 6'.5 listed DJ Quall appeared on the show. I don't think it was a full inch. 6' is too low. I'd go with 6'1.
SIlent d says on 9/Feb/12
Solid 185cm.
I KNOW says on 2/Feb/12
I know for a fact Jim Parsons is 6'. 2 inches shorter than Letterman. The same height as other 6" guys. People don't look at dimensions. Like me.
