'Austin Powers' Convicted Rapist Accused of Murdering Cellmate

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- The man who played Dr. Evil's henchman Random Task in the original Austin Powers movie -- and who was recently sentenced to life in prison for a brutal sex crime -- is now suspected of murdering his prison cellmate, according the The Los Angeles Times.

The newspaper says Joseph Hyungmin Son was behind bars with a 50-year-old sex offender who was found murdered in their cell at Wasco State Prison in central California on Monday.

Son was arrested in 2008 in connection with the gang rape and kidnapping of a 20-year-old woman in California on Christmas Eve in 1990.  He was sentenced to life in prison last month.
