The convicted felon who played  Dr. Evil henchman Random Task in the original "Austin Powers" movie is now suspected of murdering his prison cellmate ... TMZ has learned.

Prison officials say Joe Son -- who's already serving life in prison for torturing a woman in 1990 -- is the prime suspect in the murder of a 50-year-old sex offender, who was sharing a cell with Son at Wasco State Prison in central California.

Officials say the victim's body was discovered yesterday.  The victim was serving a 2-year-sentence for failing to register as a sex offender.

Son is a bad guy -- who was convicted of participating in a brutal Christmas Eve gang rape and torture of a woman who was walking around her community to check out the seasonal lights.

At least now he's definitely never going to get out of prison.

I do wonder if he killed the guy by throwing his shoe though.

This dude deserves a medal for taking out a sex offender! Furthermore, how bright are the prison staff who thought it was a good idea to put a murderer in with a sex offender? Genius in my book!

If Son is really guilty of murdering his cellmate, why let him live? What does his serving life in prison cost? What does that lethal injection cost?
Is this guy Korean? I bet Koreans would know how to deal with him.

Oh...nevermind. He didn't get arrested till 08 with DNA evidence. This guy is just a pure evil and cruel bastard. Needs to be in solitary confinement for the rest of his worthless life.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Someone needs to shank this waste of skin. Except they have to make it extra long to get through all his fat. Maybe impale him on a rusty old showerhead.
