This must be WTF trifecta day, or something. The weird news just keeps on coming. Do you remember that intimidating evil character from the AUSTIN POWERS movie, Random Task, who was like a one-off from Oddjob in the James Bond film’ GOLDFINGER? Well, in real life the actor that played Random Task, martial arts expert, Joseph Hyungmin Son, is now serving a life sentence for the torture and gang rape of a woman he helped to kidnap and rape when she was walking her dog. Now serving his life sentence in Wasco State Prison in California, Son is now suspected of the murder of a sex offender inmate. Since he’s already serving life in prison, he must have figured that the murder is a freebie or something? The murder victim was serving a two year sentence for failure to register as a sex offender.
Son was first sentenced to prison for the 1990 sexual assault on a woman walking her dog, when Son and a friend abducted the woman, forcing her inside their car, threatening with her gun, and sexually assaulting her. Charges went from rape and sodomy, evolving to conspiracy to commit murder and torture. To say the least, this effectively ended this actor’s career.
Apparently, no one bothered to tell Son that when you play a villain in a movie, that doesn’t mean that you’re also supposed to play one in real life as well. That’s bassackwards to say the least. Like I said, the WTFers are working overtime lately, putting up one heck of an effort.
They say that some people do the work of two men, Laurel and Hardy.
