If there is a common ancestor to Tram Law, Desmond tutu and Akira Kurosawa, has it been found? If not, should that call into question the existence of their common ancestor?

One common ancestor for those three would be the first anatomically modern Homo sapiens sapiens, which is dated to about 200,000 years ago. Specimens have been found.

there's no reason to doubt there's an ancestral species to modern apes

There are a number of fossils that are ancestral to modern apes, but selecting a specific one depends on how far back you want to go.

For example, there are fossils that represent the ape/monkey split dating back some 25 million years.
