He's 6ft1-6ft2
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 15/Jan/15
Matthew Fox: 6'1.25"-6'1.5" (he's the same as Jim Carrey)
Josh Holloway: 6'1"

I've met both in person (twice), and while they both appeared identical from far away, Josh Holloway had .25"-.5" more shoes than Matthew Fox did. Halloway was forthright about his height, and he's certainly not above 6'1",

If he's shorter than Fox, it can't be more than 1cm

I just stood next to him at San francisco airport. I'm 5'11.5". We were wearing similar doled shoes. He seemed maybe a half inch taller. I was expecting taller since he looks very tall in Lost. He's very thin and has a small head, which from far away gave the illusion of height. Being up close he was definitely in the 6' range, not 6'1 or higher. When I saw him again in the boarding line, many guys towered over him. Though it could have been a no representative sample, I'd expect him to be among the taller group if he was 6'1.

For once I actually agree with you. Liam Hemsworth does look a strong 6ft3
Andrea says on 31/Oct/14
He wasn't much smaller than solid 6'3 range Liam Hemsworth in Paranoia! I thought there were like 1.5 inches between them but Liam was wearing thinner shoes, so around 2 inches difference is right! 6'1-6'1.25 for Josh and 6'3-6'3.25 is right! One of the few honest guys out there!

I used to watch lost when i was young when it came out in 2004. As a kid I always thought he was tall. Being 187cm i dont know why but I can imagine him being taller than me. Maybe because he has a slim physique it makes him appear taller. But he does look like a strong 6'1. I think he may be 187cm like he's listed on other sites
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Oct/14
Josh Holloway 6ft1¼(186cm)
Matthew Fox 6ft1¾(187cm)
184.3cm says on 12/Oct/14
If he really is 185cm then he destroys Matthew fox with his 188cm..They look almost identical in every scene ive seen so far.
cole says on 12/Sep/14
@Editor Rob: Would you say he doesn't dip below the 6'1 mark and could measure 6'1.25 a good portion of the day? I think he often looks less than 1in shorter than Fox, but then he can look under 6'2 at times.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1 may be his low, he could be a little over the mark.]
afkam99 says on 6/Jul/14
i think he look flat 6'1.5 inç. Matthew might be be flat 6'2-6'2.5 inches or 188 cm
184.9 on a bad day says on 5/Jul/14
Legit 6ft 1 guy is tall. And he is.
Josh Holloway's 185.5-186
Matthew Fox 187-187.8
Rodrigo Santoro 1.87-187.5
176,2Tunman says on 4/Feb/14
Hard to believe he's a full inch shorter than Fox.In most of the scènes he looked either the same or taller than him.Of course, camera was often at his advantage but I just don't think there would be more than an invisible fraction between them like 6'1.25 for Josh and 6'1.5 for Fox
Lenad is sexy says on 16/Jan/14
looks 1-2cm shorter than matthew fox
Aaron says on 27/Dec/13
Villanove, stop talking complete rubbish saying you were on set with both of them. They aren't both filming anything right now
Lenad is sexy says on 22/Dec/13
187cm and fox is 188. Or He is 186cm and fox is 187cm. 6'1 on the dot looks too low
Sarah says on 2/Dec/13
Rob, do you think that he could be 186-187 cm?
afka says on 15/Oct/13
Actualty he is strong 186.5 cm

Villanova says on 24/Jul/13
I've been on set with Josh and Terry O'Quinn, a couple of weeks apart.
I'm a legit 6' 1 3/8".
Thought Josh was exactly my height.
Everyone thinks I'm over 6'2" because they lie about their height.
Terry O was about a inch shorter than me.
Btw/ both of those guys were extremely nice guys. Very impressed with both of them.
cole says on 13/Jul/13
He can look taller than 6'1 flat, at least he gives a taller impression at times. Could buy 186-187 cm for him.
lenad is sexy says on 3/Apr/13
I think hes a strong 6'1 and Fox is a weak 6'2
Anon says on 23/Mar/13
6ft 1 could be very accurate I think. Simply one of those guys who looks very tall, muscular too. When measures precisely, I'm quite sure Fox would be the taller one.
Balrog says on 22/Jan/13
He's sure a legit 6'1'' man.
Dmeyer says on 11/Jan/13
There is a chance he measured 6'1 1/8 in and says 6'1
Dmeyer says on 11/Jan/13
Big strong 6'1 Man. Dosnt dip under 185.3-185.5
Peyman says on 11/Nov/12
maybe 185cm isn't impossible for O'quinn
Peyman says on 21/Oct/12
Holloway :185.5cm
O'quinn :186cm
Fox :186.5cm
M.C.Gainey :188cm
I can live with that
Lo sgozzatore says on 16/Oct/12
Rob, what about this pic? If Josh's only 6'1, dont you think Daniel Dae Kim is under 5'8 and Maggie Grace more 5'8.5? And Dominic Monaghan still looks noticeably shorter than him, even if he's much closer to the camera Click Here
[Editor Rob: he might have shoe advantage over daniel/maggie, but for me he is still the six one he says ]
Newbee says on 3/Oct/12
I remember a scene in CSILV first season, where a severely slouching Josh Holloway was at least 2 inches taller than Nick Stokes in boots (since CSI are always in boots). Also I have seen the entie lost series, and I thought Sawyer (James) was 6'2''-6'3'' range. He is no shorter than Jack Shepherd or John locke if not taller. I guess the reason is you could not care less about your height when you are in a good mood and extremely confident.

"Josh Holloway's height is 6 ft 1.25 in (186cm)"

Zach says on 6/Aug/12
@Godred, time for a trip to the optoms. Check out Holloway/Fox pics below.
Godred says on 4/Aug/12
@Zach and Andrea - 6`1 looks right to me.
ANDREA[ITA] says on 1/Aug/12
Yeah, i think he could be taller than 6'1 but not 6'2, or closer to that! Maybe he's just 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 but i dont think more than that! Matthew Fox sometimes looks 6'1, sometimes looks closer to 6'2...
Zach says on 31/Jul/12
Andreaitta- yes I remember that scene. Matthew Fox was in work boots. They were both in a flat house so no jungle variables and yet looked the same height. And yet when Josh bids farewell to Fox on the porch you can see that he is barefeet.

However if you check some of the pics below I believe they are both exactly the same height. Certainly Josh Holloway is not 6'1 that's for sure.

Rob doesn't appear to agree with the consensus here for some reason however and ultimately he lists the heights. Bit bizarre when the consensus is a celebrity is TALLER than listed.
ANDREA[ITA] says on 31/Jul/12
Ok! I just finished watching all Lost and I gotta say that josh is a guy who could easily be a legit 6'1.5! He always looks tall, he looks taller than Matthew Fox and Terry O'Quinn in 95% of the scenes, i remember a scene where he was with Matthew Fox (in a house, so same level) and i thought: here Fox looks all his 6'2 claim (the only time i thought that), then they showed the feet and Josh was barefeet and Matthew had at least 1.3 inches shoes! I bet he wouldn't be shorter than a guy like Will Smith, listed at 6'1.5! He's very honest about his height and probably drop some measurement away when he says to be 6'1!
5\'10 guy says on 27/Jul/12
3 inches taller then josh peck maybe hes 6'2
5\'10 guy says on 27/Jul/12
hes two inches taller then josh peck in the movie battle of the year Rob he may be 6'2
Zach says on 15/Jun/12
With (listed) 6'2 Matthew Fox again: Click Here
Zach says on 14/Jun/12
Rob, I think you're being thrown off by the rare hollywood celebrity who doesnt know or care too much about his exact height and his quote of 6'1. I have to agree with others, this guy must be closer to 6'2 than 6'1. I dont think he cares too much for height because he's pretty tall regardless but 6'1 is too low.

He has pretty bad posture at times: Click Here

But straigtened out and with same posture as 6'2 Matthew Fox: Click Here

With 6'1.75 Terry O'Quinn: Click Here

And again: Click Here

These aren't handpicked, you'd be hard pressed to find any pictures where Holloway is not looking the same height as Matthew Fox and Terry O'Quinn.

It's difficult to get accurate screenshots because they're mostly on an uneven island but I've got one with in the hatch: Click Here It's an unconventional angle but its still clear he is NOT an inch shorter than Fox or that 6'1.75 Mr Eko guy. They're all hovering around the 6'2 mark or fractionally below. At no point in Lost does Holloway look any where near an inch shorter than the other 6'2ers.

I think we have a Gary 'overhonest' Lineker case here with his quote. This guy is clearly closer to 6'2 than 6'1. 6'1.75 would be my best guess, maybe even 6'2 morning height.
[Editor Rob: I personally still think he's a 6ft 1 guy, maybe Fox is a weak 6ft 2.]
ANDREA[ITA] says on 9/Jun/12
Rob, could he be 6'1.5 and drop 0.5 inches out? I mean, you have guys like Will Smith and Jim Carrey listedd at 6'1.5 and they dont look as tall as he usually looks...
[Editor Rob: wills gone and claimed that six two and a half...i still think he might have got measured in footwear, whether it was one inch or nearly one point five inch.

Josh looks what he says to me, maybe he doesn't drop below six one or is a tiny hit above. You will get lots of actors who are sitting on say 6ft 0.75 or 6ft 1.25 who bot say six one]
