"Austin Powers" Star Charged in Gang Rape

10/9/2008 9:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe SonTMZ has learned the actor who played Random Task in the first "Austin Powers" movie has been charged with a vicious gang rape.

Joe Son's arrest has been all over newspapers in the O.C., but no one connected the dots -- that the suspect is actually Dr. Evil's henchman -- until now.

Here's how it all went down. Son pleaded guilty back in May to felony vandalism. The plea required him to fork over a DNA sample. Investigators ran his sample and found Son's DNA connected him to an unsolved gang rape back in 1990, where a woman was pistol-whipped, raped, threatened with death and eventually blindfolded and released naked.

Son has been charged with five felony counts of rape, two felony counts of forcible sodomy, two felony counts of sodomy in concert by force, seven felony counts of forcible oral copulation, and one felony count of sexual penetration by foreign object by force.

Son faces a maximum sentence of 275 years to life if convicted.

So this happened when he was 18 yrs old. Was the girl older than him? If she was younger then hopefully this guy and the others will get what they deserve from their fellow prison mates. I bet those other guys are leaving the country right now.

Just kill him now. Seriously why waste taxpayer money jailing this piece of trash. Although he will be gang raped in prison and that makes me laugh-karmas a bitch! No rape isnt funny but if you are a rapist and get raped that is funny to me and deserved!!!

What a disgusting animal!! Now that they have this pig, hopefully he'll squeal on his real manly rapist "buddies" so they can all get gang-banged in prison, ie. sodomized by a train of jackhammers!

Vile excrement-nibbling cowardly puke-pus!

62. I really don't care about this guy but a lot of comments are negatively calling for this man to fry! We don't even know the particulars of what happened.

................yeah............ DNA evidence doesn't prove a thing... *eyeroll* I'm sure it's allll a big misunderstanding.

Wow. There are some truly brain dead, bigoted, mouth breathers who post on this site.
But, one must pity those whose parents are brother and sister.

Random Task was hardly "STAR" of Austin Powers.
Headline made it seem like one of the principals of the film.

Anyone taken into custody should have their DNA taken not just felons. Cuffs, Photo , Prints, DNA.
