He looks a strong 6'3", I think 191-192 range is accurate. I don't think he's 6'4". Very good actor.

6'3 or a little over, 6'3.5 is arguable, but he's no 6'4 guy.
ash says on 16/May/14
I remember his listngs at 185 cm ...this illusion about heights is ridiculous
Arch Stanton says on 29/Mar/14
Yeah he looked a solid 6'3" next to Leo in Revolutionary Road.

Is there any thread here not ruined by a woman?

Btw, the real "ice man" was nowhere near 6ft5, I don't know where where that came from. Watch the HBO interview, both guards are a few inches taller. Granted, he did look tall in younger pictures, but not any crazy 6ft5, that's nonsense. As for Shannon, 192 Cm max, just saw him in Law and Order SVU, not sure he look over 6'3...

In 8 mile, with 5'8 Eminem he looks 6'5. Though I think Mike was wearing boots while em had socks on in the scene were they fought. Good listing

6'3 - 6'4 looked very tall in The Iceman

Brilliant actor, I've only seen him in Broadwalk Empire and he is superb in that part. Must be 6'3'' or similar.
Sam says on 14/Nov/13
"in the 6ft bracket"...what does that mean? Shannon is a solid 6'3"+ IMO, Rob has him right. He might not be as big & bad as the real Iceman, but if he was, he'd be an evil mass murderer, LOL.

I don't think he's is in the 6ft bracket I agree with John Wayne all the characters in iceman are small to make him look much bigger

Michael Shannon is a clear 6'4, or even over..He's tall and looks good...I don't like guys under 6'1, most girls don't trust me on this...Its just a turn off..Taller makes you look slimmer, and we girls like that very much..Forget about short dudes, they are a turn off and insecure..Tall men are flipping sexy, belive me, accept it from me and take it from me...Tall men have a good life, great intimate moments and fantastic butt girls.."

Wow, just wow...

Definitely a suspect sighting. If Shannon was around 5'11", poor Stephen Graham would be right near 5 foot nothing...not to mention Kevin Costner, Henry Cavill, Christopher Meloni, Will Smith, etc. would all be near 5'9".

@J c'mon man that's just simply not true.

Looks pretty consistently 6'3+, looked a good 3 inches taller than Dicaprio in Revolutionary Road
J says on 8/Oct/13
I just walked past him. He didn't seem much taller than me, 5'11"
Blaze says on 1/Oct/13
at least 6'3 which is supermans height :).
Sam says on 10/Sep/13
If they had reversed roles, Shannon would have been a much more interesting casting choice for Superman. He's got the height and would be the most neurotic, terrifying, deluded Superman ever, LOL.
jtm says on 10/Sep/13
he wasn't taller than morgan freeman in high crimes.
Jake T. says on 9/Sep/13
He is at least 6'3 when looking casual, so 6'3.5 I can believe easily.
MaskDeMasque says on 6/Sep/13
6'3.5. In The Iceman he's got 4 inches over strong 5'11 Ray Liotta.
Ariane says on 23/Aug/13
6'4?? oh just like Superman's Height. :)
John Wayne says on 20/Aug/13
I really didn't think he was that tall. I just saw The Iceman, and he didn't look THAT tall. The real Iceman was 6'5", and I thought that they chose shorter looking people for the cast of the film to make Michael Shannon look bigger.

He's 6ft3 atleast, towers over casts in his films.
jtm says on 21/Jun/13
6'2 range
Spaceygirl says on 19/Jun/13
Watching him in "Take Shelter" now and he seems ENORMOUS!
man of greatness says on 5/Jun/13
i think he's close to 6 foot 5
Ajax says on 27/Dec/12
Rob, you said you thought he was a solid 6'3". Do you think you'll eventually go with that listing?
Stiffelio says on 28/Nov/12
Tough guy to figure out. I saw him on stage in "Grace" and from first row balcony he didn't seem to be a lot taller than 5'9" Paul Rudd during the applause line-up. But at the end of the show I saw him close up at the stage door and he was towering over me (I'm 5'8.5"). He looks gaunt and emaciated, older than he is.
Sam says on 23/Oct/12
In Boardwalk Empire, Stephen Graham (as Al Capone) seemed to merely come up to somewhere around Shannon's chest. Van Alden (Shannon's character) looked particularly huge in their scene together.
