yes you can, SQL supports some regular expressions:

WITH
MyLastNames(LName) AS
(
Select 'DeCaprio@gmail' UNION ALL
Select 'Pitt[phone]' UNION ALL
Select 'Schwarzenegger(phone)' UNION ALL
Select 'Wahlberg' UNION ALL
Select 'Damon' UNION ALL
Select 'Willis'
)

SELECT
B.LName
FROM MyLastNames B
WHERE B.LName LIKE '%[!@#$%^&*()]%'
