The makers of “Paranormal Activity 2“ have been more than a little reluctant to reveal who actually stars in the movie — one more tactic to suggest that it might not really be a movie after all.
Paramount Pictures used the same is-it-real-or-is-it-Memorex? strategy on the first film. As it turned out with last year’s predecessor, Katie was played by a woman named Katie (last name: Featherston) and Micah was played by a guy named Micah (last name: Sloat).
But now that the first round of largely positive “Paranormal Activity 2″ reviews are rolling in, the identities of the second film’s lead players–a married couple who experience all sorts of bad things–are no longer so secret.
Kristi, a new mom to son Hunter who also is Katie’s sister in “Paranormal Activity 2,” is played by Sprague Grayden, whose main credits come from television: the series “24,” “Jericho,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Over There” and “Six Feet Under” among them.
No word yet on the name of the dog who plays the couple’s German shepherd.
