Get all the details of a User in fieldschanged

I'm using /api/2/search to find issues that match certain criteria. What I want is to get the displayName, name or e-mail address of all the users that a given issue was assigned to. However, by default it looks like when an issue is assigned to somebody, it's always represented like this:
{"field":"assignee","fieldtype":"jira","from":"personb","fromString":"Person A","to":"personb","toString":"Person B"}]

It looks like "from" and "to" map to User.key.

 

I know I could make another API call to JIRA to look up the user for that key. But that's an extra hop. Is there a way to make JIRA do the lookup initially and return it to me all in one?
