"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.

I think I went to high school with this fool. Bellflower High School in California. If it is him he graduated in 1986 and his real name is Andrew Shin. If it is him, this dude was a high school cheerleader.

To #73: Son's semen was found at the scene and on the victim. The proof is there.

As for statute of limitations...they don't apply to Son in this case.

Let's hope they get the second jerk.

Grew up with this guy in Bellflower, CA. He came from Korea, couldnt even speak English. Him and his brother worked to become better, did better, but Joe (Mihn Son is his real name) chose other routes. We remember when he first got the austin powers deal, and a couple of other things after that. Btown knows how to turn them out! Stans Alley knows how to turn'em out ... brawlin and boozn'
