About Jamie Foxx's Real Height

Jamie Foxx is about to play Mike Tyson in a TV Series. We don't know how well he would be able to play the most ferocious boxer ever but if the criteria for the role physical resemblance to Iron Mike -- it is is definitely going to suit Jamie Foxx -- down even to the height.

Mike Tyson isn't tall and so isn't Jamie Foxx. Jamie Foxx's height is also within the range of Iron Mike -- but we think Jamie appears to be slightly shorter than that. We would really have preferred to have an actor an inch tall rather than shorter playing Iron Mike but it is what it is. 

Iron mike stood slightly over five feet ten inches in his prime (perhaps he still is as tall), while from what we have seen of Jamie Foxx, he appears to be an inch shorter -- especially when we compared his height with that of famous actors like Tom Cruise (almost 5'8"), Johnny Depp (5'9"), Andrew Garfield (5'10½"), Leonardo DiCaprio (5'11½"), Channing Tatum (6'½"), etc.

The upper limit of Jamie Foxx's normal weight would be around 176 lb (80 kg) but to play Iron Mike Tyson he "jacked" himself up to 216 (98 kg) -- which is around how much Mike weighed most of his fights.

The height of Jamie Foxx is

5'9" or 176 cm
