A movie-and-TV question I ask you

One of you appreciators of the filmed entertainments called "film" and "TV" must know this...

What do people say that a performer is "on" a TV show but "in" a movie? (e.g. "Before she was in the movie Serenity, Jewel Staite was on the TV shows Firefly and Space Cases.")

Seriously. I've wondered this and never figured out a reason. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

(Reposted from this two-year-old post...Yes, I'm still wondering...)
