    The movie is played ON a TV or "big screen" or "silver screen"(nicknames for movie theaters). SO you may also hear "he/she is ON TV and the silver screen"


    I would say, when I say IN A MOVIE, that means you are IN THE CAST of a movie. When I say ON TV, it is because the show or movie is being played ON A TV.

    Who is in that movie?
    That movie is going to be on TV tonight!
