Stosh "Piz" Piznarski is a fictional character on the UPN/The CW television series Veronica Mars. He is portrayed by Chris Lowell. The character's name is a tribute to Mark Piznarski, who directed the first two episodes of the series.
He met fellow Hearst attendee Veronica Mars through his roommate, Wallace, who persuaded her to help Piz discover who had stolen his belongings when he was first moving into his dorm room. Soon afterward, he developed a crush on Veronica.
Piz and Veronica ended up together by the end of season 3 and in the Veronica Mars movie. However, Piz broke up with Veronica in the movie because Veronica didn't show up to meet Piz's parents when they came to New York specifically to meet Veronica. Veronica ended up getting back together with Logan.
- "I rarely wear clothes indoors; I hope that's cool."
- "I don't wanna be one of those mumbly college radio, emo rocker guys who just, all they wanna do is play their band's demo, you know? Though, uh, I-I should mention that my band really is quite good. We're-we're called Black Licorice, which is really cool 'cause it's dark and moody, but at the same time, it's candy, you know?"
- "Hey, Veronica. Cool shirt. I-I went for the, uh, post-ironic route."
- "Portland. Or, well, just outside of Portland: this little suburb called Beaverton. Real salt-of-the earth people, you know. Minivan in every driveway. Chicken in every pot." (on his hometown)
- "Hey, gang. What's the word? Is it "avuncular?" ...No? Just a shot in the dark."
- "Yes, this fine example of American automotive engineering is mine!"
- "And don't call me that; call me Piz."
