Wikia Chuck - Pierre Melville

Seasons: 4
Portrayed by: Jean-Christophe Febbrari
Status: Incarcerated
Occupation: terrorist
Residence: France
Appearances: Chuck Versus the Balcony

Pierre Melville is a French radical turned terrorist, appearing in Chuck Versus the Balcony, who is trying to recover the same nano-chip as Team Bartowski.

In 2011, Melville pursues CIA agent Rosenbaum for the nano-chip he carries, containing information on the locations and blueprints of all CIA black sites in Europe. His men kill Rosenbaum in a wine cellar in a chateau, but he had hidden the nano-chip in a bottle of '86 Chateu LeFranc beforehand. Melville then withdrew as police arrived to investigate. Melville later returns to search the cellar and found the syringe the agent used to hid the nano-chip with and found wine on it.

Melville would later catch Chuck with a glass of wine containing the chip and attempted to stop him. Chuck flashed and defeated Melville and his men without spilling a drop.

General Beckman later leaked false information that Chuck and Sarah were rogue agents attempting to sell the nano-chip. Melville made an exchange with Sarah at the chateau, unaware that she was slipping him a fake nano-chip to track his movements, which in turn used to fool Alexei Volkoff that Sarah was going rogue.

Subsequently, Melville ambushes Chuck to get his money back, but is once again defeated, and left for the authorities.


It's likely that the character name was drawn from American literature; Pierre aka The Ambiguities was a novel by Herman Melville published in 1852 by Harper & Brothers, New York. Pierre and Melville were mauled by critics, and the book sold very poorly. A modern review stated "Melville fancied himself a genius, and the result of this sad mistake has been Pierre."
