Anthony Angel Jones Labrusca, Jr. (born August 7, 1995 in Houston, Texas, United States), popularly known as Tony Labrusca, is an American actor, recording artist and commercial model. Labrusca first gained his popularity via a McDonald's Philippines TV ad in 2016, Tuloy Pa Rin.
In 2016, he joined the Filipino reality search Pinoy Boyband Superstar but failed to reach the grand finals. He was part of horror-fantasy drama series La Luna Sangre. The trailer of his latest film Glorious reached more than 5 million views on its first day of release.
Labrusca is the son of actor Boom Labrusca and singer Angel Jones. He was born in Houston, Texas, United States and grew up in Los Angeles, California with his mother, step-father (Boom Dayupay; ex-Kulay member) and sister. When he was 9, his family moved to Vancouver, Canada. He then flew to the Philippines to pursue his career in show business.
Before Labrusca auditioned for Pinoy Boyband Superstar, he was already a face of various TV commercials. He became more popular when he played the guy who broke a girl's heart (Elisse Joson) in the viral McDonald's TV ad entitled Tuloy Pa Rin in 2016.
During his audition in Pinoy Boyband Superstar, he was unexpectedly reunited with his biological father, model and actor Boom Labrusca. He successfully became one of the top contenders and went up to the Top 7 for the grand finals. Unfortunately, he did not make it to the Top 5 as the final member of BoybandPH.
He made his acting debut in 2017 via TV5's Wattpad Presents with Louise delos Reyes. Later, he joined La Luna Sangre considered as his first break playing the role of Jake Arguelles. His character was set to become a third person in the love triangle between him, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
On January 3, 2019, Tony landed in Ninoy Aquino International Airport and was only given 30 days to stay by the Philippine immigration officials due to his inability to show proof of Philippine citizenship and is not accompanied by Filipino parents. There was a confrontation with the immigration supervisor and he insisted on extending his stay due his status as an actor. He then tweeted on Twitter that he was only given 30 days to stay in the Philippines.
