Looked shorter than Harold Perrineau in 'The Best Man Holiday', certainly not taller.

He's one of those solid 5'10" guys who can pull off looking taller because of physique. Anyone who watched him on V knows that given slight footwear advantage/disadvantage on any one episode, he and Joel Gretsch were very similar in height:

He wears nikes in boyz in da hood making him appear 6'-6'1" however, one resume he was listed as 5'11.5" so he probably rounded up from that claim. But this listing looks close to accurate.

Looks like 5'10, never looked 6'0,
thc said on 24/Aug/13
wow, i thought this guy was 6-6'1

Has always looked 6' even. At the very least he is 5'11.5".

If The Rock's 6'3, then I would say the 5'11-5'11.5 is a good estimate for this guy after watching the game plan....

Watching him and Cuba Gooding Jr in Boys in the Hood, they appear to be around the same height. Cuba I believe is listed on this site as being 5'10.

I had to revisit this page after watching The Best Man. Mr. Editor, what's with the long-winded discussions on Ray Lewis on the Mo C'nut's page? Seems a little out of proportion as a reference point.

Anyway, we really need to be careful how far we downgrade one individual to prove our selective points, because we stand to lose credibility on other points. If C'nuts is 5'8" like some have said, what does that make Taye Diggs, who is clearly shorter than him and is listed at 5'8"? And how could any of them sky over Nia Long in heels if they are shrinking and she is listed at 5'2"? Morris Chestnut does not have the industry power to pull of a Tom Cruise and would be a difficult leading man cast if he was THAT short. Poor posture may hurt the tape measure, but truly small guys would never slouch. I think his height is rightly listed here.

A 6-0 guy cannot look 5-8, even with a horrible slouch.
Trey said on 24/May/07
I've met him, he's six feet I think, although he slouches alot.
Viper said on 15/May/07
How could a 5-8 guy get listed at 6-3 anyway?
Viper said on 15/May/07
How tall did the Rock look to you?

I was extra in the movie game plan and was on the field with Morris Chestnut. I'm 6'2 and I say he's lucky if he 5'8. No where near 6 feet

5'8?... your mom is quite mistaken
So in the film Breakin' all the Rules...i guess jamie foxx is wat..5'5-5'6??...
please try again
bunnie69 said on 29/Jul/06
my mom met him and she said that he looked like he was only 5'8 so i don't believe this site
Viper652 said on 9/Mar/06
Hmm, there have been a lot of sightings of him in the 5-10 range. Its possible. No way is he only 5-8 though. But I still dont think Jamie Foxx is above 5-8 at all.

you should change to 5'10, just watch boyz in the hood
