When I get a list of users or groups who have mailbox access to another user or group, how can I turn that list of users from domain\username into their display names?  

I'm trying this from the Exchange powershell after importing ActiveDirectory module:

Get-MailboxPermission -identity JSmith| select user | foreach ($user in $users) {Get-ADUser $user.Name}

But I get this in return:
Unexpected token 'in' in expression or statement.
+ Get-MailboxPermission -identity JSmith| select user | foreach ($user in <<<<  $users) {Get-ADUser $user}
    + CategoryInfo          : ParserError: (in:String) [], ParentContainsErrorRecordException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnexpectedToken
