Laszlo Mahnovski is a former child prodigy who has worked with the CIA on top secret weapons projects.

Among the items he claims to have designed are Chuck's modified Nerd Herder, the home theatre system at the Buy More, and Chuck's Watch. While he initially stated that he was set up by the CIA for the death of his handler, it can confidently be assumed that he is, in fact, guilty of the deaths, perpetrated after his demonstrated psychotic break.

He planned to blow up the arcade where his recruiter found him as a child, but was unsuccessful due to Chuck's vast knowledge of James Bond movies, which helped him figure out how to disarm Lazlo's bomb inside the Nerd Herder.

Chuck speculated that he was involved in the creation of the Intersect, but this was later found to be erroneous. Laszlo is often seen as a "through the glass, darkly" version of Chuck.


  • Mahnovski is a play on the last name of actress Yvonne Strahovski, who portrays CIA agent Sarah Walker.
  • Laszlo was also the name of the super genius who suffered a breakdown and thereafter lived in the steam tunnels of the university in the feature film, Real Genius.
