Fox is 6'1.5" tops, thats why there isnt much difference Rampage, a half inch is nothing if someone has; thicker hair/better posture/more footwear.

What are you basing that off?

Fox's height? The listing he has here which I agree with. I stand by that anything up to a half inch can be easily made invisible through superior posture and/or big footwear.

I thought that O'Quinn was 184 cm max. He was slightly shorter as in many scenes he was raising his eyelevel a bit when talking to Fox.

Josh had better posture than Fox which is why I thought they were actually the same height in the start.

Still scratching my head over O'Quinn because he looked indistinguishable from Fox and point I guessed all 3 at 6ft2

Rob, could you tweak this to 186cm?

He does look close to Fox (weak 6ft2) a lot of the time.
berta said on 30/Nov/15
I AM LOOKIN AT LOST now and i must say he really looks like 187 in one scene he and Matthew fox is standing in a fllor and fox is looking 3 cm taller. but then in the next take i saw that josh was barefoot and jack was in working boots. And fox is not shorter than 187
SJH said on 26/Sep/15
He can look the same height as matthew fox sometimes. There maybe just a fraction between these 2 duo
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/15
He's 6ft1-6ft2
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" said 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",
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Dec/14
If he's shorter than Fox, it can't be more than 1cm
Joshspotter said on 27/Dec/14
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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/14
For once I actually agree with you. Liam Hemsworth does look a strong 6ft3
Andrea said 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!
teej said on 19/Oct/14
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 said on 13/Oct/14
Josh Holloway 6ft1¼(186cm)
Matthew Fox 6ft1¾(187cm)
184.3cm said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 16/Jan/14
looks 1-2cm shorter than matthew fox
Aaron said 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 said 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 said on 2/Dec/13
Rob, do you think that he could be 186-187 cm?

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 said 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 said on 3/Apr/13
I think hes a strong 6'1 and Fox is a weak 6'2
Anon said 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 said on 22/Jan/13
He's sure a legit 6'1'' man.
Dmeyer said on 11/Jan/13
There is a chance he measured 6'1 1/8 in and says 6'1
Dmeyer said on 11/Jan/13
Big strong 6'1 Man. Dosnt dip under 185.3-185.5
Peyman said on 11/Nov/12
maybe 185cm isn't impossible for O'quinn
Peyman said on 21/Oct/12
Holloway :185.5cm
O'quinn :186cm
Fox :186.5cm
M.C.Gainey :188cm
I can live with that
Lo sgozzatore said 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 said 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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/12
"Josh Holloway's height is 6 ft 1.25 in (186cm)"

FACE said on 9/Aug/12
Honest 6'1 (185 cm)
Zach said on 6/Aug/12
@Godred, time for a trip to the optoms. Check out Holloway/Fox pics below.
Godred said on 4/Aug/12
@Zach and Andrea - 6`1 looks right to me.
ANDREA[ITA] said 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 said 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] said 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 said on 27/Jul/12
3 inches taller then josh peck maybe hes 6'2
5\'10 guy said 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 said on 15/Jun/12
With (listed) 6'2 Matthew Fox again: Click Here
Zach said 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] said 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]
Godred said on 10/Dec/11
@Dominic - I think he is what he says- nothing more,nothing less.
Dominic said on 4/Nov/11
He's closer to 6'2. He's 186 or 187 and the latter could be more likely. The height difference between him Fox and O'Quinn is not noticeable at all.
LAN Jiao said on 26/Oct/11
honest 6'1 like eric dane!
thebad7 said on 23/Jul/11
He looks shorter than both of his LOST co-stars, Matthew Fox and Terry O'Quinn. 6'1" flat is correct for him.

Godred said on 21/Jul/11
Still 185.
Lenad is sexy said on 18/Jul/11
i'd say a solid 186cm. Nothing under 6ft1
ANDREA[ITA] said on 7/Jul/11
yeah rampage! go on upgrading everyone's height! if he said he's 6ft1 than he is! just stop it! maybe 186-187 in the morning but no more!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/11
185cm is too low. Even at night he'd probably measure over that.
Lenad is sexy said on 13/Jun/11
solid 186cm during the day.
seda said on 12/Jun/11
yeah thats true he join to beyaz show in turkey beyaz is the 184 cm and josh is a litlle taller than beyaz
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/11
I'd say in the evening he'd still measure at 186cm...
Chameleon said on 6/Jun/11
Lol yeah 4 inches on Maggie Grace, so he is a genuine 6'1 guy
Godred said on 3/Jun/11
How is that the lowest he can be when he says he`s 6`1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/11
186cm is the lowest he could be and 188cm is the highest.

So he must be either 6ft1.5 or 6ft1.75
Godred said on 20/May/11
6`1 like he say`s.
Chameleon said on 15/May/11
Looks 6'1 next to Maggie Grace, highest he can be is 186.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/May/11
187cm(6"1.5) is closer than 6"1 flat
Lenad is sexy said on 13/May/11
I think hes 6'1 range like flactualting between 186 and 187cm. Hes 0.5-1 inch shorter than Fox
Chameleon said on 9/May/11
Maybe he actully is 185cm, dont forget a legit 6'1 guy with shoes can pass for 6'2 no prob.... he might ofcourse be 186cm barefoot but thats it eh?
gogo said on 7/May/11
i still think he is closer to 6ft2 (188cm)
Godred said on 30/Apr/11
6`1 on the button.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/11
I think 187cm looks closer....he'd probably measure at 6"2 out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/11
I think 187cm looks closer....he'd probably measure at 6"2 out of bed
Lenad is sexy said on 24/Apr/11
yeah nothing under. In face 186 is probably more accurate.
Godred said on 13/Apr/11
I still think 185 is correct, nothing under though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Apr/11
He's 6ft1.75(187cm)...
Godred said on 31/Mar/11
Menace - 185 is not average height, obviously.
Godred said on 24/Mar/11
One of the few guys I actually believe when he gives his height, definately doesn`t look under it, can look taller but I think 6`1 is correct.Nice height to be.
Menace 195cm said on 24/Mar/11
Met this guy in Sydney, Average in height, merely 185cm. I can see the top of his head looking horizontally. He is exactly the average height of white males --- 185cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jan/11
Better chance Matthew Fox is 6"2.5 than Holloway
Sam said on 19/Jan/11
Please post pictures where Holloway appears 1.5 inches taller than Fox, I've certainly never seen them
tommy said on 18/Jan/11
he is taller than mathew fox by about 1.5 inches if you look at any red carpet appearance or anything of them together.
so i would say he's about 6'2.5 while mathew is 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/11
He may even be 6"2(188cm)
jtm said on 22/Dec/10
i agree with his 6'1 claim.
Chameleon said on 22/Dec/10
Yeah 186/187 for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/10
He claims 6"1 and throws away the extra half inch...

In actuality he's 186cm-187cm
Moke said on 21/Dec/10
He seems to have quite a big reach: Click Here
In addition he's very athletic with good looks. Maybe that lets him appear rather 6'2 than the listed 6'1?
Jamal said on 12/Dec/10
Looking at body proportions in photos, he looks so long. I would've guessed at least 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_)Clover said on 19/Nov/10
187cm Rob?

[Editor Rob: i still think he's an honest 6ft 1 guy]
Patrick said on 9/Nov/10
This suave nice actor is exactly what I always read about him: minimu a tad under 6'2. I always thought people in Lost were also very accurately gauged as Terry O'Quinn and Matthew Fox are.
Alexandra said on 4/Sep/07
He towers over 5'9 Maggie Grace when she's in flats, so I think he could be 6'1.5 or maybe even 6'2.
andrew said on 23/Jul/07
He usually looks shorter than Matthew Fox, so I think 6'1" is right.
Charlie23 said on 17/Jul/07
I agree with you people the guy looks 6'1.5 - 6'2
Alucard said on 25/Jun/07
I think it's time to change Josh's height to 6'1.5" at least...
Nicola said on 11/Jun/07
I 'm sure that Josh is taller than 6'1''. He even looks slightly taller than Matthew Fox(6'2''). So, his exact height is 6 ft 1,75 in (187 cm)
Click Here
teknus said on 31/May/07
he is 6'3
Martin said on 13/May/07
I would say Matthew Fox is 6'2,5" and Josh Holloway 6'1.5"-6'2". According to what I have seen of them.
Frank said on 29/Apr/07
Nothing under 6ft1 that's for sure.
AA said on 25/Apr/07
Tall, but not 6'3". I'm gonna stick with 6'1.5" (maybe 6'2", but almost remote)
Anonymous said on 25/Apr/07
By this pic i would say the diference between holloway and fox is 1/2 inch. Both are not in a straight position but you can see taht fox is a little bit taller.

Frank said on 23/Apr/07
Click Here looks tall to me
AA said on 22/Apr/07
What the hell?? 6'3"???
Fox is 6'2" for sure, and Holloway is an INCH taller??
He's 6'1.5" (187 cm)
clare said on 14/Apr/07
josh is 6'3,he sais that in a other magazine.I don't understand why he sais two different things but I think that he standing 6'3 and not 6'1
AA said on 10/Mar/07
Josh is 6'1.5", Fox is 6'2", O'Quinn is 6'1.25" and Adewale is 6'1".
Moke said on 13/Feb/07
wth?!I would also say he's about 6'2 (188cm). He looks at least the same height as matthew fox so why you put him as a 6'1?? fox also wears high boots in lost. even if M. fox would wear flip-flops and josh higher shoes in lost you would see the diference of 3cm, but fox doesen' this guy up!
Gabba said on 9/Jan/07
Long hair go down, which make him shorter.. he's surely 1 cm less than M.Fox (who is 188)..they're almost the every picture of cast of Lost they look very similar.. he's 187.
KingCobra said on 12/Dec/06
Nah i would say 6'1 barefoot. Have you seen those boots he wears in Lost? They must add AT LEAST an inch to his height. And to be honest you cant compare his height to other people in lost because the ground level is all over the place. I think the only place you can truly guess his height is off the set and on flat ground. But i would say 6'1. Not 6'2.
me said on 16/Aug/06
Josh looks taller than Terry O' Quinn. Him and "Jack" always look about even because Sawyer is always hunched over. I think Josh Holloway has to be at least 6ft. 2in.
AA said on 13/Jul/06
Yeah, he's being modest... he's sure 6ft1.5, he looks close to Matthew Fox...
bikagyura said on 28/Mar/06
I think he looks just a little bit over 6' 1
styleforlife said on 23/Feb/06
yes he is the kind of guy that doens't care what his height is because he know he has a good height but I have to say I think he is 6 ft 1 ..Fox is a little bit inche is hard to see but if you look realy good you will see it
Phil said on 25/Jan/06
Seriously, bump this guy up. He's at least 6' 1.5"
GLV said on 20/Jan/06
as you may know, Josh was a model for many years... you can get details on his height (6'1"), chest, waist, etc (and even shoe size!) on various model sites, as . Go in men, search by first name. One other site said 6'1" 1/2
RLG said on 25/Oct/05
Yeah, Josh Holloway, Matthew Fox and Terry O'Quinn always look about the same height in the photos I've seen on level ground at awards shows, etc. and I'd agree Josh is closer to 6'2" than 6'1" if the heights of Fox and O'Quinn are fairly accurate.

Here Josh looks at least as tall as Terry O'Quinn:

Here he's the same height as Matthew Fox:

From the photos I've seen, Josh almost never stands up straight with his head level.
sam said on 23/Sep/05
He always looks taller than 6'1" to me, closer to 6'2" actually. He just seems to be a tall guy.
Tuco said on 29/Aug/05
Well Rob, in Naveen's defense, you have Dominic Monaghan listed as a solid 5'7, and Naveen has at least a couple inches over Monaghan on Lost. You're right though, he really does look shorter in pics than on the show.

[Editor Rob: Lost is notoriously hard to compare heights on since the ground is as uneven all over the place...]
Anonymous said on 19/Apr/05
He seems taller than 6'1" in many photos, I see. He may be one of those tall guys who doesn't really care what their height is so they just guess. I could be wrong though.

[Editor Rob: I don't really see Lost so only put down the height he said. Of course he may actually be slightly taller...]
