22 Tall Actors From Hollywood

This article is a list of 22 Hollywoood actors who are both successful and well, tall.
It is like a sequel to my Tall Girls Dating article but it can be read and enjoyed separately as well. And yeah, it is for laughs.


2.     Paul Walker: 6′ 1¼” (1.86 m)

Paul Walker has played in many entertaining movies. I have a top movies list coming up for Paul. In the meantime, you might check out Timeline where he stars alongside Gerard Butler.


3.       Troy Garity- 6′ 1¼” (1.86 m)

Troy is Jane Fonda’s grandson. I saw one movie with him in it but it was enough to leave an impression. You might read about Soldier’s Girl here:

4.       Pierce Brosnan- 6′ 1½” (1.87 m)


Maybe the most popular actor ever to come out of Ireland. A top Pierce list is also on the way.

Pierce’s movies I covered so far:

The Fourth Protocol

Laws of Attraction

Seraphim Falls

5.       Colin Firth 6′ 1½” (1.87 m)

A complete English gentleman who was called “adorable” by Craig Ferguson. Hey, when one hetero male calls another hetero adorable, you better believe him.

On Colin:

Dorian Gray

British Actors We Love

6.       Josh Holloway- 6′ 1½” (1.87 m)

Did anyone know about this guy before he played Sawyer on Lost? I didn’t but hey I don’t think we needed to. I  am not exactly a fan of the show. But I admit checking the episodes out once in a while and watch some parts if Joshua is there. Call me shallow if you like. It’s such a pleasure that I can’t even put it in the guilty category.

7.       Gerard Butler- 1,88 (6’2”)

    A very interesting piece. A lot of these actors are new to me, but I really like Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth.

    @ Sharif: Seriously? You are throwing Darth Vader at me?:)
    According to IMDB, Brad Pitt is 1.80, so hardly tall.:)

    Oy, no Conan O’Brien? He’s 6′4″ (isn’t it bad I know that off the top of my head?!) Ha, well maybe you were only using movie stars, but when someone says “tall guys in Hollywood” his name is the first one that pops into my head. :D

    On August 4, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    :D :D:D: Ha ha. Brett, I am loving your comments. And while I agree that Robert Downey Jr. is hot, your statements about the looks on thom yorke and conan will give me a heart attack, lol:))

  20. Brett Bennett

    On August 4, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    Well I am loving your posts! And I am madly, completely, utterly in love with Conan O’Brien. :) I think he’s madly attractive. But please don’t have a heart attack!! It’s probably just because he’s hilarious. I like the funny guys. hahaha

    Hi… all great guys listed and I thought I’d add one more…. Kevin Sorbo Hercules and the Legendary Journeys & Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda & just recently What If… & Soul Surfer to name only 4 of his MANY works… is 6′3 3/4″ many times he’s been passed over for supporting roles because the “BIG” name actor such a Stallone is under 6′ and he would be taller than them… he’s said it in interviews many times….
