Yesterday, the shocking news that Random Task from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery murdered his cell mate with his bare hands hit the wire. We were mostly surprised by the news that the actor, Joe Son, was even in jail. Then we were super-duper double surprised to find out that he had been convicted for kidnapping a girl and raping her with a gun. Seriously, Mike Meyers, you let this guy near the Fembots?

However, Son is not alone. Though they typically get off with a slap on the wrists, not all actors and directors are so lucky. Here are seven celebrities who have gone from call times to hard time.

Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson

In an instance of life imitating art, The Wire actress (and Jayden Smith stand-in) was arrested this past March in a drug raid at her home after being surveilled for some time by the DEA. She was among sixty-four people arrested under suspicion of belonging to a large gang participating in the sale of drugs. Pearson (who was previosly convicted of second-degree murder) had her character defended by The Wire creator David Simon. He stated, "She worked hard as an actor and was entirely professional, but the entertainment industry as a whole does not offer a great many roles for those who can portray people from the other America. There are, in fact, relatively few stories told about the other America... In places like West and East Baltimore, where the drug economy is now the only factory still hiring and where the educational system is so crippled... the vast majority of children are trained only for the corners."

Lillo Brancato Jr

A Bronx Tale and The Sopranos actor Lillo Brancato Jr. was arrested in 2005 after a gunfight resulted in the death of an off-duty police officer. In 2009, Brancato was cleared of first-degree murder charges but was convicted of first-degree attempted burglary and sentenced to ten years in prison.

John McTiernan

Die Hard director John McTiernan was sentenced to a year in prison for perjury after it was discovered he lied to the FBI and a federal judge about his involvment with wiretapper Anthony Pellicano. Though he denied he played any role in the wiretapping of producer Charles Roven, an audio recording of a phone conversation between Pellicano and McTiernan was brought to the courts attention. In the recording, McTiernan asks, "You can't have the thing on there listen for particular words or names?"

"Nah, nah, nah," Pellicano responded. "That's in the movies."

He must have been so pissed to find out he wasn't being Punk'd.

Lane Garrison

Rules To Live By #38: If you are twenty-seven years old, it is a bad idea to attend high school party.

Rules To Live By #39: If you are twenty-seven years old and decide to attend a high school party, it is a bad idea to kill any of the underage party-goers.

Priso Break's Lane Garrison broke both of these rules when he killed a teenage passenger while driving drunk to pick up more alcohol. Two other teens in the vehicle also sustained injuries. Garrison was convicted of vehicular manslaughter and sentenced to 40 months in jail.

Michael Brea

Michael Brea, an actor who appeared on Ugly Betty, was arrested for killing the demon inside of his mother. Sadly, he decapitated his mom in the process. When questioned about the crime, Brea confidently replied, "I didn't kill her. I killed the demon inside her... I just kept cutting her. No one could stop me. I was doing the work of God."

Wesley Snipes

In December of 2010, Wesley Snipes reported to a correctional institution in Pennsylvania after being found guilty of tax evasion. Snipes argued that he was being made an example of, much in the same way that Martha Stewart was made an example of. Strange that he didn't learn from Martha's example.

OJ Simpson

OJ Simpson walked away a free man after standing in the center of the most famous murder trial in Hollywood history. However, he wasn't so lucky in 2008 after being found guilty of armed robbery. Simpson and five other men were trying to retrieve sports memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room. Simpson alleges the items were stolen from his home and that no harm was intended. The judge didn't rule in his favor however, citing that a gun was drawn and someone could have been killed. The confrontation was ruled as premeditated as the planning, the aftermath, and the robbery itself were all recorded on audio and videotape. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in federal prison with an option for parole after a third of the time is solved. It's believed that is where he'll spend the rest of his days.

Speaking of prison, the guy who hacked Scarlett Johansson's nude photos is looking at 121 years.
