Lee Pace and Jared Harris have been cast in the lead roles of the upcoming Apple series Foundation. The series is based on the Isaac Asimov novel series of the same name.

Pace previously starred in the acclaimed AMC series Halt and Catch Fire and also led the cult favorite ABC series Pushing Daisies.

His other notable film roles include The Fall, The Hobbit franchise, and A Single Man.

Harris has been nominated for two Emmys in his career — most recently for his starring role in HBO’s Chernobyl and previously for his supporting role in AMC’s Mad Men. He also starred in the first seasons of Carnival Row and The Terror as well as the first two seasons of The Crown. His film roles include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Lincoln, and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. He will also appear in the upcoming film Morbius, which is set in the Spider-Man universe.

David S. Goyer will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Josh Friedman, Robyn Asimov, and Skydance Television’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Marcy Ross also executive producing. Skydance will serve as the studio on the series.
