Skip to comments.Oldest NFL Cheerleader Laura Vikmanis' story getting The Hollywood treatment

Ben-Gal Laura Vikmanis. (Bengals.com) The NFL's oldest cheerleader just scored a movie deal with New Line. Laura Vikmanis shakes pom poms and does high kicks at the ripe old age of 42 for the lowly Cincinnati Bengals. A team so bad the last couple of years she was probably the most interesting thing to watch on the field. New Line obviously thinks so, as they have picked up the rights to her story, and assigned writers whose credits include "Gnomeo and Juliet" and "Ratatouille," the Hollywood Reporter reports.
After her husband left her for a younger woman, she told her sister at a Bengals game that cheerleading looked like fun, and maybe she'd give it a try. Vikmanis, who has two daughters, tried out for the Ben-Gals at age 39 and was rejected.
She didn't give up, kept working out and training, and the next year, at age 40, she was in!

You gotta be kiddin’. No pics?
I take that back. She looks good.
We find the Bangle, er, I mean....the Bengal....
Her ex-husband should have his head examined.
I bet Laz would hit it.
“I bet Laz would hit it.”
Who, that old battleax? Are you kidding?
Like a jackhammer.
She seems to be equipped with her own, built-in personal floatation devices - spurred on by a fear of drowning, perhaps?
My thoughts exactly.
He either suffers from macular degeneration or is just plain stupid.
I worked with a girl when she was 18 and 19. This was at a Summer retreat and she was hot as a firecracker.
I recently saw her again, at age 37 she still is extremely pretty. I do wonder if in five more years her looks will still hold up. My guess is yes.
If I am near her in the water, I am hopping on.
If the Bagels don’t embarass my city enough, they have to parade this hideous old hag. No wonder her husband dumped her. Maybe his new wife is not only younger but not a skank.
Just because she's cute does not mean she's easy to live with.
Old saying: "There is no woman so beautiful that there is not at least one guy who is tired of her sh*t".
Have your eyes checked, tuit suite.
She is a hottie.
