Portrayals of Bing?

Has anyone portrayed Bing on film, television, stage or radio? I don’t think there’s been a biopic, and I can’t find any trace of him as a character in someone else’s story. IMDb have a character name search and there’s no results. I’d be curious to see someone playing him. I don’t think his story is dramatic enough for a biopic film but maybe another format.

I did see a stage play about Rosemary Clooney in London a few months ago, at the Wimbledon Studio. It was a two-hander with the male actor playing her psychiatrist doubling up as figures from her past, including Bing.

An image of Bing appears in the Sinatra film "The Joker Is Wild" singing "June in January". The TV movie "The Grace Kelly Story" has someone playing Bing in one scene.

Thanks for the info. Wonder who could play him. Apparently Gary wanted to.

Don't forget our boy Satch in the Bowery Boys movie "Blues Busters" where Satch suddenly sings like Bing when he has a sore throat.  Funny stuff here.
