Channing Tatum has said working with Jonah Hill on 21 and 22 Jump Street has upped his confidence in comedy roles.

The 34-year-old told Empire magazine, "I was known for love stories and action movies and I guess it gave me a lot of confidence that as long as I was being helped along by the boys and Jonah that I could be funny."

The star previously admitted that Hill had to convince him to take on the role of undercover cop Greg Jenko in 21 Jump Street as Tatum didn't think he could be funny.
