Hollywood actor's name in school plays (9)


I believe the answer is:

'hollywood actor's' is the definition.
(actor Jack Nicholson)

'name in school plays' is the wordplay.
'name' becomes 'n' (common abbreviation e.g. on forms).
'plays' indicates an anagram.
'inschool' with letters rearranged gives 'icholson'.

(Other definitions for nicholson that I've seen before include "Oscar winner 33", "See 8", "Jack -, US actor".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
