THE third season of Foundation will star Oscar-winning actor Troy Kotsur. According to Variety, Kotsur will take on the role of Preem Palver, described as “the leader of a planet of psychics” in the sci-fi series headlined by Lee Pace and Jared Harris.

This project marks Kotsur’s return to Apple TV+, following his role in the film CODA, distributed by the streaming giant. In 2022, Kotsur made history by winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in CODA, becoming the first deaf man to achieve this honor in the acting category. His win followed his CODA co-star Marlee Matlin’s historic Oscar win 35 years prior for her leading role in Children of a Lesser God.

Kotsur faced competition from Ciaran Hinds (Belfast), Jesse Piemons (The Power of the Dog), JK Simmons (Being the Ricardos), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Power of the Dog) at the Oscars. CODA, a 2021 coming-of-age comedy-drama film, written and directed by Sian Heder, also secured Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay at the 94th Academy Awards. The film features Emilia Jones as the eponymous CODA, the only hearing member of a deaf family, navigating the challenges of supporting her family’s struggling fishing business and pursuing her own life aspirations.

Kotsur’s recent roles include appearances in the final season of Curb Your Enthusiasm as himself and in Season 1 of The Mandalorian. His extensive career includes roles in shows like Criminal Minds, Scrubs, and CSI: New York.
