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.

Looks to be 170 cm + 4 cm + 12 cm + 3 cm or 4cm = 189 cm (6'2.5") - 190 (6'2.75"). But 190 cm is a good call.

he looks a little more than brandon routh I'd say he's 190cm, 6'3 or 6'2.75
Armandy said on 21/Jul/15
190.5 cm and Tom 190.0

I have a hard time believing he'd edge out Welling...
James B said on 1/Apr/15
190cm by bedtime
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/15
Most sites have him listed 6ft3(192cm).

Rob what are the chances of him measuring that earlier in the day?
[Editor Rob: out of bed sure]
joe said on 1/Dec/14
190 cm

6ft 2.5inch barefoot 1.25 shoe =6 3.75 almost 6'4 there ya go.. thats why he says he is almost 6 4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/14
But, Rob 190cm is 'near' 6ft3?

With all due respect I don't understand your logic
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Nov/14
Oh you're so on the money there

really what the hell is that supposed to mean I 'spend a lot of time looking at heights'?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/14
Rob, could John be 190cm like Welling?
[Editor Rob: he can be in that zone near 6ft 3]
onthemoney said on 12/Nov/14
i think this guy is around the same height as tom welling so this listing is on the money. @rampage clover: for a guy who's claiming 6'4" out of bed, you sure spend a lot of time looking at heights.

John has,only 5.5 to 5.75 inches in the photo with Rob......He's flirting with 6'2" with the hair and the boots hes probably wearing......I am,6'0.75" and right at 6'2" in my work shoes.
Markus from Italy said on 20/Oct/14
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.
Sam said on 24/Sep/14
To me he looks a weak 6'3" in that photo but can look pretty close to the mark otherwise.
Nils said 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 said 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.]
bigboy fury said on 2/Aug/14
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 said on 9/Apr/14
Funny, on Smallville, more often than not Welling appears to have the edge.
jonas said on 25/Jan/14
John is a bit taller than Tom Welling so 191cm is spot on. Very accurate listing.
avi said on 22/Jan/14

Yeah i don't hear height discussed much amongst every day people I guess being projected on screen makes it quite noticeable
avi said 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 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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said on 14/Oct/13
Looks about 189 - 190 cm above.
LG69 said on 7/Oct/13
Looks 6'3" here.
Mathew said on 22/Sep/13
A bit under 6'3".
Lorne said 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 said on 13/Sep/13
Rob, is it possible he measured close to 6ft4 out of bed?
[Editor Rob: quite likely]
cult22 said on 12/Sep/13
exactly 1.91 m
6.3196 feet
Brad2 said 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 said 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 said on 26/Aug/13
@Lo sgozzatore - That puts John under 6'2... nah.
Balrog said on 22/Aug/13
I think this guy at 6'2.5-6'2.75" and Welling at 6'3" is better.
Mathew said on 31/Jul/13
Hmm I think he's not a full 6'3", but pretty close.
Lo sgozzatore said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 23/Jun/13
Looks a strong 6'1 here. I think it's his build and hair making him look taller.
Lo sgozzatore said 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 said on 10/May/13
Looks slightly shorter than Brandon Routh. Range is 189 - 190.
TimDuke said 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 said 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 said on 29/Jan/13
Rob, do you think this guy is taller than Tom Welling?
[Editor Rob: they are probably very similar]
Nils said on 22/Jan/13
Should be downgraded abit.. he can look slightly shorter
then Tom at times.
Josh said on 18/Jan/13
solid 6'2
PepsiCola said on 16/Jan/13
Strong 6'3 for sure,i think he is taller then Tom welling
Trent said on 5/Dec/12
Nah, 186 is out of it. I give him 6'2.5
CBM said on 23/Nov/12
Looks 186-187. His hair is makin him look taller.
Lo Sgozzatore said 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 said 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 said on 6/Oct/12
" John Schneider height: 6 ft 2.75 in (190cm)"
UK182.5cm said on 5/Oct/12
He looks nothing over 6'2" in this
Tom said on 26/Sep/12
I agree with patrick! JS is closer to 6'4"
Tom said on 25/Sep/12
I think six foot three and a quarter is very close.
avi said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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.
patrick said 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 said on 16/Jun/12
Sorry but he looks more 6'2 than 6'3 here.
Biff said on 14/Feb/12
The guy is over 50 --looks great , but cannot be at prime height anymore.
Hans said 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 said 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 said 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]
