There are many Filipinos in Hollywood but the roles or the persona they partake is basically non-specific ethnic minority. I appreciate many celebrities like Rob Schneider, Nicole Scherzinger and Black Eyed Peas singer Apl.d.ap to have had embraced their ethnic roots.
Here is a partial list of Hollywood celebrities with Filipino ancestry.
Anna Maria Perez de Tagle
Ernie Reyes Jr.
Lou Diamond Phillips
My personal favorites are Shannyn Sossamon (she's so gorgeous!), Marc Dacascos (from the movie The Crow), and Dante Basco (voice of Zuko in Avatar)

The others are pure Filipino, like Paolo Montalban, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, Dante Basco, Ernie Reyes Jr. and Charice Pempengco.
