Ashton Kutcher on what he learned from Steve Jobs

This week’s biggest surprise: Actor Ashton Kutcher gives a surprisingly inspiring and smart speech at the Teen Choice Awards. In a brief acceptance speech, Kutcher channels Apple founder Steve Jobs and champions nerds with three pieces of advice.

Juju Chang of Good Morning America posted it on Facebook, calling it “remarkable.” I could not resist watching and now you can be the judge.

Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie, “Jobs.” Here is a Los Angeles Times story about his role. And it looks like he’s already echoing Jobs’ talent for inspiring people with his speeches.
