'Austin Powers' Villain

Isolated in Prison

After Allegedly Killing Cellmate

10/12/2011 2:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The scumbag who played Random Task in "Austin Powers" has been isolated from other inmates at Wasco State Prison ... after allegedly murdering his cellmate Monday ... TMZ has learned.

Prison officials tell us ... Joe Son has been placed in administrative segregation for the time being, citing "safety reasons."

We're told Son was originally housed in an area reserved for new prisoners -- but after he was named a suspect in the death of his cellmate, Son will be on his own while prison officials investigate.

During his solitary confinement, Son will be allowed to enjoy 10 hours of yard time a week -- and he'll also have regular shower privileges.

As we previously reported, Son is already locked up on a life sentence ... for participating in the brutal rape and torture of a young woman back in 1990.

This is the perfect example of why the death penalty is needed.

Lets all remember this fine moment in Joe Son's life. Couldn't happen to a better guy! By the way, he is the guy in the red shorts in the video I linked (I'm not making this up).

Good riddance!    

I remember seeing this d-bag take multiple vicious full punches to the groin (legal back then) in UFC 4 and then get chocked out. :-) He sounds like a nasty, dangerous animal that will either rot in a small, concrete coffin/cell or maybe a real wooden one.

Of course he's in solitary confinement. Like the CO's would start changing the rules for him. I hope he never gets out.

I think killing a inmate while in for life is the death penalty. I know it is for a lot of states. Hope this moron gets the injection.

What a psycho... Did you bother to read about his 1990 arrest. He doesn't deserve jail, he deserves death. Perhaps that's why he killed his cell mate. Can't stand to be in jail anymore, expecting to be put to death. With the money you had you could of bought sex instead of brutally raping a woman. Your a jackass!!!!!

Is his brother Daniel Son? If so, did he get raped? I bet the guy he murdered probably said "Wax On Wax Off Joe Son" or maybe "Me so horny. Love you long time".

So he kills and rapes people and he gets more hours of yard time than other prisoners and Regular showers. Seems like he got a better deal. What's wrong with that pic.?

This is awful. I expect a lawsuit to come out of this, and rightly so.
