Carlyle was one of the main reviewers on Spill.com. Often held different opinions than the rest of the Spill crew, and was known for his friendship with Ain't It Cool webmaster Harry Knowles and his status as a "professional" online critic. His involvement in the site, specifically the reviews, began to decrease dramatically in late 2009 and throughout 2010. During this time, his main involvement with the site was through the podcast "A Couple of Cold Ones," which he had hosted since its inception in early 2008. He retired (perhaps only temporarily) from that podcast and Spill.com in 2011 in order to focus on working on a career as a novelist and screenwriter. He made a guest appearance in a short, where he Korey rip off half of Cyrus' face, to make him look like Jonah Hex. At the end, half his face is nothing but a skull, causing Korey to react in disgust and horror, while Carlyle remains calm saying they can fix it. After putting a cowboy hat on Cyrus, Korey says, "Oh. That's perfect."
