Catching Up With Micah Sloat

It’s been a busy month for Micah Sloat.

The surprise star of “Paranormal Activity” — the surprise hit of the fall season — has appeared on Jay Leno, and in the pages of Entertainment Weekly.

He’ll be featured soon in People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue.

But he hasn’t forgotten his Westport roots.

“We’ve passed $100 million in box office receipts to become the most profitable movie of all time,” he said in a quick email to “06880.”  “I know some people in Westport might like to know!”

Some of those Westporters are friends from Staples, or of his parents (Bob and Vicky) and late grandfather (who owned Sam Sloat Coins & Cards).

Other Westporters who might care:  anyone with a business background.

If “Paranormal” — which cost just $15,000 to make — were a stock, it would be a Google share — times 675.

Its rate of return:  more than 433,000 percent.

Go figure.

  1. I also remember Flo Sloat, Micah’s grandmother, Sam’s wife. They were supporters of the World Affairs Center in the early ’70s. Best wishes to Micah!
