The man who played villain Random Task in “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” has been charged with murder in the death of his prison cellmate, TMZ first reported.

In 2011, he reportedly killed his 50-year-old cellmate, Thomas Graham, who was serving a 2-year sentence for failing to register as a sex offender.

Law enforcement told TMZ that Son is a former MMA fighter, and he killed Graham in with a combination of swift kicks and punches.
