He did appear the same height or slightly taller than Brad Pitt in Across the Tracks. RS had somewhat lankier build than BP. These were the days before Brad Pitt was a big star. He's appeared taller ever since. Shoes and camera angles help and are often used for the top stars.
I believe the movie is available on dailymotion.

Rob, I dunno if you saw the same movie I did?! LOL In a 1988 TV-movie called "Too Young the Hero", an 18-year old Ricky Schroder standing in front of a height chart, appeared 5'9.5" on the dot, although he has claimed 5'10" more recently, and I thought he actually looked a tad taller than 5'10" Dennis Franz on TV's "NYPD Blue"-?? Maybe Franz is more a 5'9" barefeet height (5'10" in shoes)-?? In the film mentioned below, "Across the Tracks", yes he did appear a hair shorter than his co-star, Brad Pitt, by about an inch.

Better known for Silver Spoons Rob than he is for NYPD Blue.

No he didn't look the same as Brad Pitt in Across the Tracks at all Vibram, Pitt looked 1-1.5 inches taller to me.

Looked the same as Brad Pitt in "Across The Tracks" (1990). Both men are 176cm - 177cm.

An inch shorter than Brad Pitt, 5'9"-5'9.5" range as evidenced by that film he was in.

Rob in this picture (Click Here
) he is clearly 5'9".
[Editor Rob: that tv movie was filmed when he was 17, the old links are gone I think, there was a few other caps]

With 5'8.5" Chad Lowe:
Glenn looks to have judged Rick pretty well.

Kevin, remember he was a child actor, he looks quite young in that picture against the height chart, do you know when it was taken? Very likely he could have grown an inch if he was in his teens there.

yes Glenn, someone posted a photo i think in the Brad Pitt section of Rick and Brad beside each other.

youre right. in across the tracks is pitt only an inch taller then schroder. both of then had the same running schoes. and here is a photo of schroder where he stands aganst a wall. hes barely 5ft 9in but his feet are not visible anyway.
so if schroder is only 5'8 - 5'9 pitt isnt taller then 5'10

I dont understand your question? did they ever stand next to each other? pitt can look 6 even.5-11 minimum.
rwfender said on 11/Mar/06
if he is 5'8 or 5'9 and an inch shorter than pitt, doesnt that make pitt 5'9-5'10?
