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.

The people who are posting - "who cares? He killed a sex offender..." -- You do realize that Joe Son is also a sex offender, right?

He violently raped a woman in a gang rape and his DNA was recovered. He shouldn't get a medal - he should get the NEEDLE!

Keep sticking him in with some more sex-offenders. Especially chomos. Maybe he can redeem himself in about 20yrs.

I bet the guy he killed was trying to do to him what he did to the woman he kidnapped — say it with me kids — R. A. P. E! I hope the next guy who tries to rape him up the azz succeeds. Then I hope gangs of men rape him every day until his azzhole is so torn he can't hold in his putrid sh*t. THAT would be justice for the woman he raped for sport. :)

Well that takes care of one sex offender and hopefully makes sure another will never be set loose on us again. Although, with California having to depopulate it's prisons, and with this State's love affair with Hollywood, we just might be seeing him again.
