Working with JSON data from themoviedb.org API

Get help using Construct 2

hey hi!

i'm a noob trying to hack an app together that uses data from TMDB's API but i can't figure out how to make the results it returns usable in C2.

lets say i make a search request for a person like that:
http://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/person?api_key=MYAPIKEY&query=spielberg

what it gives me is:
{"page":1,"results":[{"adult":false,"id":488,"name":"Steven Spielberg","profile_path":"/jRWARxzljSY8SbOKTludOSECdk7.jpg"},{"adult":false,"id":8700,"name":"Sasha Spielberg","profile_path":null},{"adult":false,"id":23965,"name":"Anne Spielberg","profile_path":null},{"adult":false,"id":54127,"name":"David Spielberg","profile_path":null}],"total_pages":1,"total_results":4}

so right now i have a text input field wich modifies the search term of the request URL and the ajax object can request the the data from that URL no problem and from there i can load it into whatever i want.
Now i'm stuck though.. nothing seems to want to work. right now i'm experimenting with the hash-tables plugin but no success so far.

my goal here is to get all the resulting persons names shown and made clickable in C2.

any ideas where to look?

thanks,
Alan
