'Austin Powers' Villain

Convicted of Torture In Rape Case

8/29/2011 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0829_Joseph-Hyungmin-Son-mugshot
The guy who played "Random Task" in "Austin Powers" -- the guy who throws a shoe -- has been convicted of torturing a 20-year-old woman back in 1990.

Joseph Hyungmin Son
was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of participating in a gang rape of a woman on Christmas Eve ... when DNA linked him to the crime.

According to prosecutors, Son and another man abducted the woman, dragged her into the back of a car, pistol whipped her and threatened to shoot her.

The victim claimed Son and the other man repeatedly raped her, and sexually penetrated her with a gun before releasing her in Compton naked.

Son is due back in court on September 19 for sentencing -- and faces a maximum of 15 years to life in prison.

I remember watching fight in UFC#4. He had a crucifix tattoo covering his entire back and was preaching about God. I guess he'll be preaching bent over now.

How in the world did this guy who is in hit movies...get away with this for 18 years??? This is a brutally violent crime and they caught him 18 years later??? This is horrific that this convict has been living in our society for 18 years with this crime unpunished thinking he "got away with it". What is wrong with our justice system????

It was Keith "the giant killer" Hackney that repeatedly pummeled Joe Son's marbles at UFC 4.

So I guess we finally have an answer to the age old question "Who throws a shoe?"

Apparently, rapists throw shoes.
