How tall is John Schneider ?

John Schneider height: 6ft 3in (191 cm)

American actor best known for playing Bo Duke on tv series The Dukes of Hazzard and as Jonathan Kent on Smallville. On Larry King he said about his height and weight: "I got -- I'm almost 6'4" and my lightest, after my heaviest, was 175 pounds". I met him at a Memorabilia event in 2007 and thought he was close to 6ft 3.


5ft 8 Rob and John

Well, that's exactely the height range difference between me and a friend of mine who's 190. When I'm next to him, feel like dwarf. Interesting as height difference, with camera angle, can make you look taller or shorter according to the case even though there's not so much difference in height. a 190 man can easily tower over a 174 to 185 height man if camera angle is advantaging him or her.

To me he looks a weak 6'3" in that photo but can look pretty close to the mark otherwise.
Nils says on 20/Sep/14
I see, thought 6'2-6'2.5 before.. but i think he might be 6'3 or close as listed :)
Nils says on 19/Sep/14
Hey Rob it looks to me like ur head is abit closer to the camera
is that the case?
[Editor Rob: maybe a small fraction, but the top of my head is further away from his nose.
My head length is in the 90-92 percentile range.]

I met him at a dukesfest event in Atlanta in i think 2008 and he looked about 6,2 but had boots with a fairly big heal so was more like 6'1 at the very most.

to all of you who are talking about how tall you are in the morning after bed and before you go to sleep - you can stretch yourself doing arm bars. if the muscles are tense, you lose less height. try it!
John says on 9/Apr/14
Funny, on Smallville, more often than not Welling appears to have the edge.
jonas says on 25/Jan/14
John is a bit taller than Tom Welling so 191cm is spot on. Very accurate listing.

@Rob

Yeah i don't hear height discussed much amongst every day people I guess being projected on screen makes it quite noticeable
avi says on 19/Jan/14
wonder why Larry King really would ask him his height. i never understood why , if height isnt that important, then these news reporters and talk show hosts always mention it. what a messed up media we have.
[Editor Rob: height is of course of interest.

People get their height measured, they get asked their height, they observe people of different heights and notice how tall people are...no parent wants their kid to 'grow up to be small and weak', it's always 'big and strong'.

And since there is a keen interest in celebrities, and all sorts of aspects relating to them, height is a very visual interest and people are curious about certain celebrities and how tall they are.

For actors themselves their height can define the type of work they get, as can their looks. That's why it is on their resumes and casting directors do pay attention to heights when determining roles for movies etc.

To show how 'unimportant' height as become, you only have to look in the last 2 years at the biggest company on the internet - even they wanted to get in on the height bandwagon ;)]

I'm around 235-240lbs now. But I was a twig in the teens and 20s.
Lorne says on 10/Dec/13
192.5-190.8 yeah, but you said 192.5 morning, 190.8 evening, just 1.7cm. Not impossible shorter spine, I guess, but that be a bare minimum. It be like me saying he's 190.1 evening,192.7-192.8 after a full night sleep, it's possible, but extreme. But Schneider's a big guy who looks to lose close to an inch, but it could be just 2cm, like you. BTW, how much do you weigh? With your user name, at legit 191cm, I picture you huge!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 9/Dec/13
Hey, I don't shrink a full inch...ever

I'm 6ft3.25/191cm evening and exactly 6ft4/193cm on the nose upon waking. But then again I have the upper body of man well below 6ft and the legs of a 6ft6+ basketball player.
Lorne says on 8/Dec/13
Rampage, he would probably lose a full inch, morning to night, surely not less than 2cm. If he's 190cm evening, he's at least 192 out of bed. And he's not more than 190.5...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Nov/13
192.5cm-192.6cm right out of the bed.

190.8cm-190.9cm the second before collapsing on the bed
Mathew says on 14/Oct/13
Looks about 189 - 190 cm above.
LG69 says on 7/Oct/13
Looks 6'3" here.
Mathew says on 22/Sep/13
A bit under 6'3".
Lorne says on 14/Sep/13
Yeah Rampage, a guy like him could even lose 3cm morning to night, it's not impossible he'd scrape 193cm immediately after a full nights rest. IMO, he measured a little over 6'3 early day, hence the claim. I do think he'd measure just a hair under 6'3 afternoon(like welling) so 190cm range evening, 192.5-193cm out of bed, 6ft3-6ft3.5 is what he'd measure within the first few hours of day.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Sep/13
Rob, is it possible he measured close to 6ft4 out of bed?
[Editor Rob: quite likely]
cult22 says on 12/Sep/13
exactly 1.91 m
6.3196 feet
Brad2 says on 8/Sep/13
Am I correct in assuming that these actors don't know that they are having their height assessed? His posture isn't the best and I would give him 6"3', but jeez you guys are demanding 6"2'? Harsh! He is a big guy. Over 6"2' for sure.
RobV says on 29/Aug/13
Interesting though, yet again, a very tall person in the public eye just pushing the claim upwards. Many would think that it is understandable an actor of 5'11" claiming 6 foot, or a shorter actor claiming more, and that no-one above a certain level would claim more, or want to - but that is wrong and it proves yet again (look at Lundgren and the Hawaiian actor Jason Momoa) that even very tall guys like to claim taller and bigger than they are. It kind of goes against the often-stated idea that 'anything over 6'2" is too tall' !
Yaspaa says on 26/Aug/13
@Lo sgozzatore - That puts John under 6'2... nah.
Balrog says on 22/Aug/13
I think this guy at 6'2.5-6'2.75" and Welling at 6'3" is better.
Mathew says on 31/Jul/13
Hmm I think he's not a full 6'3", but pretty close.
Lo sgozzatore says on 24/Jul/13
Lorne, i repeat! There was a scene where Welling was barefoot and Schneider in big shoes. He wasnt taller than Welling! And you maybe forget that also Schneider does wear pretty thick shoes so he's not disadvantaged!
Lorne says on 23/Jul/13
Wow didn't realize he's only 47 in this pic. Makes me think a 190cm listing has to be closer. But I'm not convinced he was shorter than Welling. In early episodes he edges him out a lot, though other times welling has clear advantage. I think he should be dropped to 190cm. Him and Tom both identical in height, only footwear made the difference.
avi says on 22/Jul/13
no even with no hair he is 6,2 and change. you have to train your eyes to ignore any hair that is fluffed up. hair doesnt count much maybe 1/8 inch unless like this guy who has it spiked a bit up in the front then maybe it counts for 1/4 inch or touch more...
Average weight says on 23/Jun/13
Looks a strong 6'1 here. I think it's his build and hair making him look taller.
Lo sgozzatore says on 5/Jun/13
Rob, i'm rewatching Smallville and Schneider 9/10 times looks shorter than Tom Welling. I remember a scene where Schneider had shoes and Welling was barefoot and Schneider didnt look taller than him. Even if it's been 4 months i've not commented, i still remember you dont think Welling is over 190. Ok, but Schneider is shorter, he himself said it, maybe a 6'2.5 listing would be closer?
penguinboy25 says on 10/May/13
Looks slightly shorter than Brandon Routh. Range is 189 - 190.
TimDuke says on 15/Mar/13
He's was a strong 6'3" when I met him in 1999.I'm easy 6'4" and I was just a tad taller than him then.
Lo sgozzatore says on 3/Feb/13
This guy himself said Tom is taller than him. Whats the need of saying that if Schneider is taller? After all those years working together, he probably knows that better than us...
Alex says on 29/Jan/13
Rob, do you think this guy is taller than Tom Welling?
[Editor Rob: they are probably very similar]
Nils says on 22/Jan/13
Should be downgraded abit.. he can look slightly shorter
then Tom at times.
Josh says on 18/Jan/13
solid 6'2
PepsiCola says on 16/Jan/13
Strong 6'3 for sure,i think he is taller then Tom welling
Trent says on 5/Dec/12
Nah, 186 is out of it. I give him 6'2.5
CBM says on 23/Nov/12
Looks 186-187. His hair is makin him look taller.
Lo Sgozzatore says on 3/Nov/12
He IS shorter than Tom Welling! He looks that and he himself said that Tom is a bit taller than him! I doubt he'd be taller than Brandon Routh! 6'2.5 is about right
Aragorn 5\'11 says on 20/Oct/12
He's not shorter then Tom Welling. He's either the same or most likely a little bit taller. 6'3 sounds right for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Oct/12
" John Schneider height: 6 ft 2.75 in (190cm)"
UK182.5cm says on 5/Oct/12
He looks nothing over 6'2" in this
Tom says on 26/Sep/12
I agree with patrick! JS is closer to 6'4"
Tom says on 25/Sep/12
I think six foot three and a quarter is very close.
avi says on 12/Sep/12
i thought my hair gave me a 1/4 inch!! this guys hair is so pushed up! must give him a over .5 inch. Mine must only give a 1/8 inch or .2 tops. wow. he is 6'2.5 btw
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 6/Sep/12
Maybe 6'2.75 is closer, he just doesn't look any taller than Tom Welling, they're around the same height.
patrick says on 24/Aug/12
When i see the pic of Rob beside Adam Baldwin a legit 6'4...i don't notice any height difference with the J,S. one. They are exactly the same. check out. i am old now...
Drew says on 10/Aug/12
@Hob, It could just be looser posture on his part. In any case he looks at least 6'2.5" judging by this picture.
Hob says on 6/Aug/12
rob should bring him down at 6'2.25-6'2.5 , anyone check on brandon routh page could easily spot john was no way taller than routh. max 6'2.5
patrick says on 5/Aug/12
Hans, you need glasses or watching again and above all, listening to J.S. himself telling that Tom was one inch taller than him, what confirmed people of the S.V. crew near Vancouver. Hans, would you be yourself of German decent? The fact is Germans are generally tall and taller than many but here, in the US, a lot of people are very tall with very different origins. BTW i am french but live in Arizona and am only 5'7. Anyway, J.S. looks a legit 6'3.
Anonymous1 says on 16/Jun/12
Sorry but he looks more 6'2 than 6'3 here.
Biff says on 14/Feb/12
The guy is over 50 --looks great , but cannot be at prime height anymore.
Hans says on 14/Feb/12
I disagree with Welling being taller. Not that this makes his height a fact, but the 10 years of Smallville, John always appeared slightly taller than Welling.
Hans says on 14/Feb/12
Yeah, both Schneider and Hasselhoff both of German decent--read in their bios. Even Brandon Routh part German, too. Not sure if there is a height connection , but genetics always part of the mix.
Nils says on 5/Feb/12
Rob , did he really look taller then Brandon routh?
In ur pics John even looks slightly shorter.
[Editor Rob: in person both look quite similar]
