Daily Digest: Strong men in Spa City, Kris Allen debuts in November and George Clooney talks to goats

The America’s Strongest Man United States National Championships — the largest professional event of the year with more than  20 competitors — is coming to Hot Springs' Summit Arena next August 7-8. That means hulking dudes will be doing things like deadlifting cars, carrying trees and hauling boulders. Probably should go ahead and clear your calendar.

Kris Allen's still untitled album comes out November 17. [@KrisAllen4Real]

In other "American Idol" news, if any Arkansans who auditioned for "Idol" earlier this week made it far enough, they got judged by Neil Patrick Harris. [EW]

The "Men with Goats" trailer is out. George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey about the U.S. government's efforts to create a psychic branch of soldiers. Looks like it's gonna lay the quirk on a little thick, but who knows. I'll never trust another trailer after "Inglourious Basterds." [Apple Trailers]
