London: Actor Channing Tatum has revealed playing undercover cop Greg Jenko in `21 Jump Street` and its sequel has increased his confidence in his comic abilities.

The 34-year-old actor, who is best known for his straight action roles in films such as `GI Joe: Retaliation` and `White House Down` and occasional romantic parts, will reprise his role as undercover cop in `22 Jump Street`, reportedly.

"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," Tatum said.
