Boyle won the Oscar this year for directing "Slumdog Millionaire."
Carlyle is the star of the new science-fiction series "Stargate: Universe."
"For me personally, I would jump through hoops of fire backwards for Danny Boyle. I would do 'Porno' tomorrow for nothing," Carlyle told the BBC. "I think there is lots more entertainment to be had from that group of people so I would be up for it, and I know Danny seems to be edging more towards it. After his success at the Oscars, he should be able to pretty much do as he wants."
The BBC said the follow-up to "Trainspotting" is expected to be about the same group of characters a decade later.
However, Ewan McGregor, Carlyle's "Trainspotting" co-star, has previously said he thinks a sequel would be a "terrible shame" and indicated he would not be interested in participating.
McGregor and Boyle, who also collaborated on "A Life Less Ordinary," reportedly had a falling out after Boyle did not cast him in the film "The Beach."
